For general discussion and debate. Possible talking point: Indy's Back!

For almost 20 years, Hollywood has been waiting for the next instalment in the money-spinning Indiana Jones adventure series. Indy is back this week – and even an ageing Harrison Ford can still crack an impressive box office whip... The real pleasure for series fans may lie not so much in the madcap action, the carnivorous bugs and the familiar perils of quicksand, but the restored romance between Ford and Allen, and the fatherly relationship that develops between Ford and LaBeouf, who is clearly the new pretender to his whip.

Full disclosure: I'm a HUGE Indiana Jones fan, and am more excited about his return than any new continuing series installment since Godfather II. Anybody else as pumped, or is this just likely another Hollywood blockbuster undeserving of the attention it's getting?
