In this week’s Gabbing Geek podcast, Jenny made a strong case that Temple of Doom is vastly superior to Last Crusade in the Indiana Jones series.  Check out the debate at the podcast to hear us blast Jenny!  Ryan and Watson disagreed strongly, so we decided to put it to YOU loyally readers.  Which is the better film?

Take the quiz and stick around to post in the comments section how you’d rank ALL FOUR Indy films!

 

If you came here just to settle the bet, check out some of the great articles we have here at Gabbing Geek!

So, will Jenny prevail or is this Diehard/Christmas movie all over again?

Either way?  Fortune and Glory, Kid.  Fortune and Glory.

Give The Finger Using A Machine You Didn’t Know How To Work, Get Handed The Keys To Reviving Every Franchise

This one goes out to all the "Starlord is that guy from Community?" haters.
This one goes out to all the “Starlord is that guy from Parks and Recreation?” haters.

Fresh off starring roles in two of the top four grossing movies of 2014, Hollywood is looking at Chris Pratt to save all their stale franchises.  First up, he’ll follow in the giant footsteps of Tyrannosaurus Rex and Spinosaurus and attempt to avoid the extinction of Universal’s once lucrative franchise with Jurassic World.  While it will make a tonne of money, I agree with Ryan’s Bold Prediction that it under performs.  I love the dinos.  The original is one of my favorite all time films, but this looks like just more of the same.

Now Deadline is hearing whispers that Disney is hoping to lasso in Pratt to star in an Indiana Jones reboot.  (I don’t know if it is a true reboot, or he is Indy’s son, or Pratt will star but an incredibly aged Harrison Ford will upstage him by surviving a nuclear blast in a lead lined fridge.  Strike that last one, that makes no sense and couldn’t possibly happen.)  And since the guy formally looked on as the franchise savior is busy making porn and starring in controversial videos, his lose is Pratt’s, and our, gain.

What Star Wars Sequel? I Don’t Know What You’re Talking About!

star-wars-force-awakens_612x380

Back when George Lucas was making the sequels to Star Wars (the original one), he was able to keep a lot of things secret simply by filming under an alternate title like Blue Harvest (which sounds like the title of  a 90’s era softcore porn thriller starring Shannon Tweed).  Today, with the interwebs, camera phones, and the hula hoop all the rage, it has gotten a lot harder!  Time to bring in the lawyers!!!!

Gabbing Geek 21: Golden Son & Prophecies

This. Read this. Now. Unless you haven’t read the first book. In which case, read that. Then read this.

 

Gabbing Geek’s first podcast of 2015 is now live and we FINALLY get to talk about Golden Son, the second book in the Red Rising trilogy.  If you’ve read the first book, Red Rising, or don’t care about spoilers for the first book, then you’ll absolutely want to listen to this episode–we don’t spoil anything for book 2.  But if you want to participate in our Gabbing Geek Book Club in 4 weeks, be sure to read both Red Rising and Golden Son (they’re page turners, you won’t have any problems, Jenny guarantees it!).

Star Wars Episode 7: Bad Ass Kung Fu Awakens?

The excellent team at Schmoesknow dropped a great story on Episode 7 featuring three martial artists and a stunt coordinator from the Raid 2 in the film.  Meaning we could get to see some sweet moves; hopefully with lightsabers!

The trio is also linked to Andy Serkis somehow in possible motion capture. This rumor, if true (and the SK team are solid), get our blood moving!

Lucas would have had them be the trade ferderation we’re guessing.
