If this is knocking around somewhere else then lock, merge or delete etc.

Found this on the BBC news website:


The first picture from the set of Indiana Jones has been released, as filming on the fourth adventure begins.

Actually, It's pretty obvious they've used quite a bit of makeup on him in that pic to hide the aging. Luckily, his face has more "Character" then say, "Hideous aging" going on anyways, so it's all good.


Can't WAIT for this film.

Actually, from this picture, I think he doesn't even look THAT old. He looks very similar to before. And he's definately Indy. The only Indy.

Now let's hope that hack Lucas hasn't killed the script.

He kinda reminds me of my grandpa right after he lifted something heavier than he should... and now he's just slumped in a chair trying to play it cool like "I'm not too old for stuff" but he's breathing heavy and barely awake.

There is something exhausted looking about him in that pic.

That being said... I am praying for a good Indiana Jones flick, but I am trying to be realistic at the same time. I'll admit I am having a hard time not getting my hopes up, though.

Firewall was incredibly mediocre. Hollywood homicide was so bad, I turned it off halfway through.


The Fugitive is an old movie. so is Airforce One.

All that means to me is, he's been picking crap roles. He's still a great character actor.

Indiana Jones is his best role, then The Fugitive.

Nice additions to his resume since the 90's have been Air Force One, and, to be more recent, Firewall.

Watch Firewall twice in a row (when it's on HBO and it's raining outside and the DSL is out, as I did) and you'll see it actually is a pretty good movie. It's layered, you notice cool stuff the second time around. Same with Spiderman 3, but that's an entirely different story...

As for Hollywood Homicide.....ugggh. If I watch a movie and it either has zero rewatchability or it's not memorable at all, then it is automatically bad. I don't even remember what Hollywood Homicide was even remotely about (except for the first clue they found was pee on the floor, that I remember) except that it sucked ass.

Well, naming yourself "Movie" wasn't a very good start. I'd say, at this rate, about 23,957 times. smile

Haha, let's not forget he sort of brought himself back with Episode 3. Besides, I just bought the Indiana Jones Collection and watched the whole shebang and bonus material yesterday, and you see that Indiana IS Lucas. It's all his creation and the epic and the adventure of it is all really Lucas' workings, not Spielberg. I hate giving Lucas credit, but on Raiders and on, it's really required.

All throughout the behind the scenes on Raiders and Doom he's telling and showing Spielberg what to do and suggesting things and improvising. He even says:

"Well, Steven let me be second camera because I kept suggesting things, which is nice. I think I would've directed this, really, but I didn't have the stomach to go a week on a soundstage with gallons of snakes, bugs, and rats. Other than that....yeah."

So, let's give him his due. Am I talking about forgiveness? No, no, I'm not talking about forgiveness.

Redemption.

Get off my plane!
Without turning this into a Harrison Ford quote-fest, I'm pumped for this. Speilberg rarely lets me down, but Lucas is something of another story. Jeff Nathanson and David Koepp seem pretty capable so I hope they can handle the script, although I find myself doubting they can live up to the pretty epic dialogue writing of Lawrence Kasdan (one of my favorite screenwriters ever).

Watch behind the scenes of the Indiana Jones movies. As much as I hate it myself, Lucas is the genius behind all that makes it great. The concept, the scenes, even the most memorable lines are mostly his added-in after the screenwriter wrote the dialogue. I've always found him to be a "schlub-o", but as far as an imaginative guy and creator, Lucas is a diamond mine.

Watch the bts. I'm watching more right now, and it shows his sketches and stuff that's all really remarkable. He came up with quite possibly 2 of the best and most memorable trilogies (or single movies for that matter) in motion picture history.

Harrison Ford may be old but he can still act and don't forget it's a movie so bit's he's too old to do may be digitally enhanced.

He's had stunt doubles in his past films, so that's still a huge option.

I think he looks great. This film is also set 18 years from the Last Crusade and Jones is 56 years-old. I don't think this will be as good, but I am very excited. I really hope they avoid too much CGI. The practical effects in the original were amazing and obviously achievable. I wouldn't mind it for some of the super natural things he encounters, but I hope they rely on stunts. I am mad Connery didn't sign up for it as he offically claimed he retired from big films. His last major role was "League of Extraordinary Gentlemen." Come on. He could have at least made a small appearance at the beginning, even having his character die wouldn't have been all that bad. If anyone else is cast to play his father, I'd be angry. Maybe mention the character at most. I also hope Shia Lebouf does well though. I wonder what his character will be like...

I find him obscenely irritating to the point that when he appears in anything, no matter what character he's playing I just end up thinking "Hey, there's that guy you find obscenely irritating." I like to think of him as the actor equivalent of George Michael's music.

No matter what? That's just pomposity. Shia Labeouf is a good, solid actor that seems pretty versatile, at least from what he's done so-far. It's your opinion, but just outright calling someone obscenely irritating is kinda harsh for a young and pretty good actor that, these days, are very few.

Whatever. If he can get the lead in Transformers and be considered for major roles in Indy 4 and the Wachowski Bros. Speed Racer, he must be doing something right.

It certainly is and so it makes no odds to me if people disagree as long as they respect that my opinions (i.e "he and the music of George Michael are both obscenely irritating") are just as valid as anyone elses.

Just outright calling someone obscenely irritating is kinda harsh
I'm sure he'll get over it but just in case he reads this and gets annoyed with me I'll use this oppertunity to say how he's not a patch on Toby Maguire when it comes to being irritating.
