I am sure you have heard of Indiana Jones!
Yup, that’s right, that rush of blood that just went through your body leaving you a tingling feeling, it’s called goosebumps. And the only archaeologist adventurer in the world, capable of doing that, is Indiana Jones. An archeologist who dabbles into the search for lost treasures and artifacts, the character is one of the most memorable roles played by Harrison Ford, other one being Hans Solo. Indiana Jones was conceptualized by the collaboration of two visionaries George Lucas and Steven Spielberg. It’s said that George Lucas had convinced Steven Spielberg to direct the movie, as he had conceived a character who was essentially James Bond, minus the junk ! The concept of a nerd looking college professor turning into a leather jacket wearing, bullwhip wielding, fedora adorned badass was appreciated by the cine goers. In the span of thirty-six years, there have been four movies that told the adventures of Indiana Jones and have catapulted themselves into the hallowed hall of fame of cinemas, with a fifth one planned in 2020.

4. Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of Crystal Skull (2008)
The hopes were high. The expectations were skyrocketed. After twenty long years, Indiana Jones came back to the silver screen. The old fans, the new fans (twenty years is a long time!) all came bustling into the theaters. But the end product was, well, let’s say, meh! The part-4 had everything in it. Nuclear blasts, CIA, KGB, triple agents(!), giant ants, cannibals, aliens even flying saucers!! Everything was there, still it wasn’t able to bring the customary joy that’s typically associated with an Indiana Jones movie, where Professor Jones sets out on a mission to find his missing friend and his link to a mysterious crystal skull. The mission leads him to his long lost girlfriend and a son, that’s born out of wedlock. The problem with the movie was the overused concept of the Alien hunting. There had been so many movies with similar concept, which made this one looked dated. The movie raked moolah worldwide but for the fans, it wasn’t like the before. The movie starred John Hurt, Shia Labeouf, Ray Winstone and Cate Blanchett as the evil Dr. Spalko.
