Indiana Jones (Raiders of the Lost Ark)
Personally I'd say Die Hard slightly ahead of Raiders of the Lost Ark. Promote this thread!

AIM: # 2 Posted on 22.2.02 2157.23 Reposted on: 22.2.09 2159.07 For me, it has to be Raiders of the Lost Ark! -4 eyed Nazis who get horribly burned! -Meltings Nazis! -Nazis getting the crap knocked out of them! It's pretty much a Nazis getting their asses kicked, shot, melted thing. Well that and it was just a fun adventure movie.

Star Wars is the best of that trilogy, and I'm a huge Temple of Doom mark. The other three are outclassed in my opinion. What about Jaws? Moe

That's surprising I think like 95% of the people I know like Empire Strikes Back the best. But I personally like Star Wars better also. As for Jaws, eh, i don't like Jaws, so i left it off. But then again I also don't like Terminator and put it on there so I guess I have no good reason for leaving off Jaws.

AIM: # 6 Posted on 23.2.02 0148.15 Reposted on: 23.2.09 0149.26 Man that's tough. I'd have to take Star Wars narrowly over Die Hard and Terminator. Personally I thought Last Crusade and Lethal Weapon 2 were the best in their respective series.

I'll be back! Star Wars is a great movie, but the Empire Strikes Back is better.

Star Wars Indiana Jones (Raiders of the Lost Ark) Die Hard Lethal Weapon Terminator If you are measuring the quality of each first movie, then I'd have to say Star Wars (Episode IV, not Episode I) and Raiders are neck-in-neck for me. However, if you compare how much better the first movie is than the rest in the series, then I have to give the nod to Terminator. T2 had cool effects, but was pretty lame. There are other movie franchises that should be in this list. The Alien movies immediately spring to mind.

As to which StarWars movie was best, I think that Empire, by itself, isn't much. I mean, it's just character development between StarWars and Return. But that's me. And it doesn't really matter, because Indiana Jones is the better movie anyway.

This is a tough decision. I'm gonna go with Star Wars. I love Raiders, I love Die Hard. Lethal Weapon and Terminator are great, but don't rank up there with the others.

Y!: # 16 Posted on 27.2.02 0752.15 Reposted on: 27.2.09 0759.01 Star Wars Episode 4: A New Hope. Its a classic, timeless story. The original could stand by itself without the sequels. BTW most people I know hate Empire, but for a transitional film it was great. As for Jedi well to quote Dante form Clerks: "All Jedi had was a bunch of Muppets."

Y!: # 17 Posted on 27.2.02 0905.53 Reposted on: 27.2.09 0929.02 Die Hard is my favorite movie of all-time, bar none. If you put all five of these movies in front of me this is the order I would watch them: 1. Die Hard 2. Lethal Weapon 3. The Terminator 4. Raiders of the Lost Ark 5. Star Wars Although, thinking about it further, the list would actually be more like this: 1. Die Hard 2. Lethal Weapon 3. Die Hard (again) 4. The Terminator 5. Raiders of the Lost Ark 6. Die Hard (yet again) 7. Lethal Weapon 8. Star Wars
