Indiana Jones (Raiders of the Lost Ark)
Personally I'd say Die Hard slightly ahead of Raiders of the Lost Ark. Lance's Response: THAT IS AWESOME! Promote this thread!

It's pretty much a Nazis getting their asses kicked, shot, melted thing. Well that and it was just a fun adventure movie. Nothing is better than X-pac! It's all in the inflection...

MoeGates Boudin blanc Since: 6.1.02 From: Brooklyn, NY Since last post: 58 days Last activity: 20 hours # 3 Posted on 22.2.02 2217.33 Star Wars by far. 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 And you know this...Man!

Quezzy Scrapple Since: 6.1.02 From: Pittsburgh, PA Since last post: 7 days Last activity: 8 hours # 5 Posted on 22.2.02 2306.23 You liked Star Wars best out of the Star Wars trilogy? 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. Lance's Response: THAT IS AWESOME!

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. There, I feel better now.

Star Wars then Raiders. What about Back to the Future? I like that one too. Why, oh why, didn't I take the blue pill...

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. Eatin' fruit and bein' cool

ScreamingHeadGuy Frankfurter Since: 1.2.02 From: Appleton, WI Since last post: 2058 days Last activity: 2058 days # 11 Posted on 25.2.02 1944.10 It's gotta be Indiana Jones, by far. 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. Fighting evil by moonlight, Winning love by daylight, Never one to take a slight, He is the one ScreamingHeadGuy

I'm gonna go with Star Wars. I love Raiders, I love Die Hard.

Q: If you could have interviewed Marvin Gaye, where would you have proposed to meet and what would you have asked him? A: I would have met anywhere as long as it was before his father shot him. I would have asked him, "Hey, don't you think there's some chance that your father might shoot you? To death, I mean?" www.Gordie.ca
Ffej Boudin rouge Since: 15.1.02 From: Flatwoods, KY Since last post: 3632 days Last activity: 1941 days # 16 Posted on 27.2.02 0752.15 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." If I lived back in the wild west days, instead of carrying a six-gun in my holster, I'd carry a soldering iron. That way, if some smart-aleck cowboy said something like "Hey, look. He's carrying a soldering iron!" and started laughing, and everybody else started laughing, I could just say, "That's right, it's a soldering iron. The soldering iron of justice." Then everybody would get real quiet and ashamed, because they had made fun of the soldering iron of justice, and I could probably hit them up for a free drink.

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
