H is for Henry Jones, Jr.

Henry Jones, Jr.  Yep, I mean Indiana Jones - doctor of archeology and part-time teacher. I'd take his class.  My favorite of the trilogy (yes, I don't count the one with Shia LeBoring because I don't like him - other than I liked him in "Holes") is the second one, "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom".  It's different from the other two which have heavy faith themes and though I'm a Christian, my favorite one is where a guy tries to rip out Indiana's heart.  Try to figure that one out! :)

Also, I love a shirtless young Harrison Ford.  And he is shirtless for a good part of the movie.

And... there's a scene with him playing with a young boy, being all incredibly attractive and fatherly.  I had to tell my ovaries he was too old. :(

AND... why I was searching for shirtless pictures of Harrison Ford for (ahem) twenty minutes.  I found this great article on 10 Reason Why "Temple of Doom" is Better Than You Remember. (Now with 91% more chilled monkey brains).  It made me laugh!  I love the chilled monkey brains scene. This movie is just creepy!  It's the only creepy I really like.

What's your favorite Indiana Jones movie?  If you say the 4th one... I might have to hunt you down... Just kidding!  Maybe...

Not really a productive day of writing.  I wrote 297 words.  Yep, lame.  Though I did catch up on A-Z posts and commenting!  So did good there, but didn't write much.  Hopefully I will have more time today to remedy the last two days of bad word counts.

  5. Shia LeBoring....lol, loved that :)

    Even though your favorite is my -least- favorite, it's o.k...you highlighted one of the coolest movie characters of all time.

    For that, I tip my fedora to you. Great post! :)

    1. Lol - thanks! I thought it was a little clever. :) I do like all three of them; Indy is one of the coolest characters of all time. :)

      I tip my fedora to you too!

  7. Just FYI, my brain got halfway through the title of your post and switched to reading it in Sean Connery's voice. :-)

    Raiders of the Lost Ark actually TERRIFIED me when I was a kid, and it was ten years before I could watch it again. But my favorite was always The Last Crusade, because I really liked the father/son thing with Indy and his dad.

    As for movie #4, well, I didn't much care for it (to put it kindly). For more, it's the last movie I review in this post: http://barenakedcritic.wordpress.com/2008/09/07/summer-review-part-1/

    1. Okay, now that is awesome! Sean Connery's voice. Wow. :)

      Raiders scared me too - the scene where they melt! Yikes! I like the father/son thing too. :)

  9. Yeah, you're not going to go wrong with those shirtless pics. :D I actually forgot his real name was Henry so I got a pleasant surprise when I clicked on your post and saw it was about Indy! :)

    1. I love all of the action scenes! *hums the theme song* Harrison Ford does a great job with them!

  11. Hey!!!! These I have seen!!!! I loved the first one, well because like any first love it will always be special. Sean Connery was a great addition in the third one. I guess I wasn't a huge fan of the middle child!

    1. Awesome! Glad you've seen this one! :) I love all three and Sean Connery definitely is a great addition to the third. :)

  12. Do I get hunted down for not having seen any of the Indiana Jones movies? :P I've just never gotten around to them . . .

  14. I've never actually seen any Indiana Jones movies and it's not even because I'm super young. :( I have to agree with you that when an attractive man is great with kids, it's a huge turn on!

    Have fun with a-z. :)

    1. An attractive man with kids is such a turn-on! It gets those hormones saying have a baby with him. :)

      You should see them someday! You might like them!

      So true! It was an awesome movie - they must not know! :)

  16. Oh, yes. I loved young Harrison Ford. Older Harrison Ford isn't too bad, either. ;)

    1. Lol, older Harrison Ford does surprisingly still look pretty good. :)

  17. I read the title and went "that name sounds familiar" - lol

    I loved the original trilogy, the other was ok. It was good to see Indy again even if the movie wasn't that great.

    My favorite is the Last Crusade, like a couple of them above, I really liked Harrison Ford & Sean Connery relationship. They were great together.
