16WORSE: INDIANA JONES
With an incredible swagger and unbreakable resolve, Indiana Jones was an excellent choice for George Lucas' follow-up to Star Wars. Harrison Ford nailed the character's tone, a throwback to pulp heroes of serials from a time long gone. The three original films would establish a universe in which problems
were solved with quick thinking and bare-knuckle brawls, and good guys always won.
But the fourth entry would sour a lot of these memories for fans. Kingdom of the Crystal Skull saw Indy return older, his demeanor far more relaxed and the action much more over the top. A weak story with a misplaced plot surrounding aliens didn't help either, though a fifth film has still been announced.
