National Treasure: Book of Secrets Reviewed
07/01/08, 5:25pm EST

Our old writer, Mike French, returns after 2 years absence with a review of a brand new adventure movie, National Treasure: Book of Secrets! This sequel to the 2004 hit film (also reviewed by Mike) starring Nicolas Cage, as the modern treasure seeker Ben Gates, is currently playing in theaters near you. But is it worth the trip?

Mike French is an experienced journalist and film review writer responsible for many of the Indy's Influences film reviews as well as some of the best articles here at TheRaider.net.
And you may expect to read more new articles from Mike as he is currently writing the second part of his Allan Quatermain feature article. Part 1 already dates back from April 2005. Time sure flies!

The Growth of the Indiana Jones Character
15/01/08, 5:35pm EST

My fellow news reporter, Mitchell Hallock, has written his first feature article entitled The Growth of the Indiana Jones Character. In this article Mitchell talks about the various interpretations of the Indiana Jones character in the films, comic books and TV-series. Here follows an excerpt.

With all the talks of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull plotlines, co-stars, set leaks, what treasure he will be looking for and Harrison Ford's age - there has been one curious topic that hasn't been addressed; Which Indiana Jones will be on the screen?
I am not talking about which actor will be up on the screen next May, but rather I am talking about the character of Indiana Jones.

An Interview With Beau L'Amour
28/01/08, 6:17pm EST

As a huge fan of great adventure stories, writer Stephen Jared had been enamored for some time with a movie Louis L’Amour’s son made called, The Diamond of Jeru.
Stephen didn’t know a great deal about Louis L’Amour except that he was one of several celebrated American authors who got started in the pulps and that he primarily wrote westerns.

Stephen read The Diamond of Jeru novel after seeing the movie adaptation by Beau L'Amour and got a little obsessive about this subject. He eventually went out to meet Beau L'Amour and interview him about his father's adventures and The Diamond of Jeru.

You can now read Stephen Jared's great interview with Beau L'Amour here at TheRaider.net! It's a good and very informative article, especially if you like the work of Louis L'Amour and adventure stories in general.

Allan Quatermain, the Original Indiana Jones?
04/03/08, 6:30pm EST

Allan Quatermain
Patrick Swayze as Quatermain in 2004.
On April 4, 2005, an article about Allan Quatermain, the original Indiana Jones and the legacy of King Solomon's Mines, was published on TheRaider.net. Writer Michael French ended his article with the words "To Be Continued..." as it was in fact the first part of a two parts essay.
It was Mike's intention to finish and publish the second and final part of the essay by the end of 2005, but unforeseen events chose otherwise and the second part never got finished.

Until today, as Michael French has finally finished his article about Allan Quatermain in which he shares with us the history of the "original" Indiana Jones and the legacy of H. Rider Haggard's classic story; King Solomon's Mines.

An Interview With George Beahm
17/03/08, 6:39pm EST

Interview with George Beahm
Off the Beaten Path:
An Unofficial Expedition
Since he first appeared on screen in June of 1981, archaeologist, Dr. Henry Jones, Jr., better known as Indiana Jones has taken legions of devoted movie going fans on some amazing adventures to the four corners of the world. These cinematic sojourns have left behind countless stories from exotic set locations to the legends of the actual mysteries involved in Indy’s celluloid quests.
One man who knows all about these tales involving Indiana Jones, is George. Before you jump to any conclusions, I do not mean THAT George, but rather a truly dedicated Indiana Jones fan and author by the name of George Beahm.

I recently had the opportunity to interview George Beahm, who along with former Disney Imagineer, Tm Kirk, set out to document those behind the scenes tales of the globe-trotting, adventurer. Their efforts have been compiled into the new book from Hampton Roads Publishing entitled; Indiana Jones -- Off the Beaten Path: An Unofficial Expedition. The book explores things as the truth behind some off the events and places from Indy’s adventures where might the Ark be? Does anyone speak Hovitos? Where is the real Club Obi Wan? And there are a ton of Indy trivia and tidbits that Indy fans will love to learn more about.

Indiana Jones Merchandising Section
31/03/08, 6:59pm EST

With all the new Indiana Jones toys and collectibles coming our way -- and IndianaJonesShop.com opening its virtual doors tomorrow -- it was about time to give TheRaider.net's Merchandising section an update!

Fresh added to the Merchandising section are pages filled with info on the new Special Edition DVDs and Indy toy lines by Hasbro, LEGO, Gentle Giant, Sideshow Collectibles, Kotobukiya, and Topps trading cards. And this is only the tip of the iceberg!
The Medicom Toy, Diamond Select Toys, Hallmark, and more pages are still in the making and will be added sometime during the coming weeks. And I think a release dates list might also be a nice addition to the section.

Have a look around in our revised and expanded Indiana Jones Merchandising section, and keep in mind that much more info is on its way!

Fourth Installment or Third Wheel?
14/04/08, 6:02pm EST

Mike French, amateur film critic/historian and longtime writer for TheRaider.net, has completed a new feature article titled Fourth Installment or Third Wheel?. This time he takes a look at Indiana Jones' fourth installment and how that could affect the series.
Mike brings in examples of not only fourth installments from the past and within series that have more than four films, but he also talks about the recent trend of fourth installments as resurrective/sendoff vehicles for iconic heroes such as Rocky Balboa, Rambo, and John McClain in Live Free or Die Hard.

Here follows an excerpt:

We know trilogies generally work and can be mapped out successfully. The fourth installment is the wild card. Some have been terrible. Some have been stellar. So that begs the next question: Will Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull be a meaningful and narratively successful fourth adventure or will it feel more like a single guy going to a movie with a couple, or in this case, a happily married trilogy... Will Indy IV be the third wheel?

An Interview with Illustrator Randy Martinez
29/04/08, 5:56pm EST

interview with Randy Martinez
Indy sketch card by Randy Martinez.
The recent release of the Indiana Jones Heritage Movie Photo Cards from Topps was welcome sight to Indy fans who have not seen these colorful, cardboard creations since 1984’s Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom movie cards way back in 1984. The Heritage set included incredible, images of Indy from his big screen outings, crew and actors’ autographs and even a stick of that infamous bubblegum (that tastes exactly the same as it did twenty years ago).

Yet, none of the cards can compare to the randomly inserted Indy sketch cards created by some of the top illustrators working today. Collectors lucky enough to pull these beauties (or buy them on eBay) now own one of a kind works of art. From caricatures and crazy cartoons, to ultra realism and dazzling color, these two and a half by three and half inch canvas captured Indy’s world with vivid imagination. I was lucky enough to talk to some of these great artists and have them share their experiences on becoming part of Indiana Jones and making instant collectibles.

Let me introduce you to Randy Martinez, the Los Angeles based artist/singer/musician who’s portfolio covers a great variety in style and media.
Comfortable working in both 2D and 3D mediums, Randy has done a “How to Draw” book, work for ACME Achieves, his work has been seen in magazines like Star Wars Insider, games like Sitting Duck, movie posters (In the Blink of an Eye) and of course trading cards for Heroes and now Indiana Jones.

Artist Joe Corroney is no stranger to the world of Lucasfilm, having drawn the heroes of Star Wars for many years. He is a master at creating the images of Jedi, Sith and aliens from a thousand worlds, but this year, Joe was tapped to draw one of George Lucas' other creations, the one with the man in the hat, namely Indiana Jones.
Topps trading cards had requested that Joe draw some of the randomly inserted sketch cards for their new line of Indiana Jones crads. Joe was gracious enough not only to speak with me for this interview, but let us see his series of cards for the new Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull set as well!

The Webby Awards Winners have been Announced
07/05/08, 5:32pm EST

The winners of the 12th Annual Webby Awards have been announced and alas, TheRaider.net was not one of them.

The Webby Award for best Celebrity/Fan site went to the Annie Lennox Official Website. The People's Voice Winner in that same category was Best Week Ever. But TheRaider.net is still proud to be part of the fortunate Webby nominees list!

And now we know how Indy must feel at the end of all his adventures; just when he gets a glimpse of the prized artifact, he loses it again... but Indiana Jones always returns home with new friends. And I think those are the very best endings!

Sincere thanks to all visitors, contributors, fans and friends who voted for TheRaider.net at the Webby People's Voice Awards! Thank you.

Interview with filmmaker Simon Wincer
13/05/08, 6:26pm EST

On behalf of TheRaider.net, Stephen Jared recently spent an hour with Australian filmmaker Simon Wincer! They discussed Wincer's new to DVD Adventures of Young Indiana Jones films as well as some of his other great works like Lonesome Dove, The Lighthorsemen and The Phantom.

Here follows an excerpt from the interview:

Stephen Jared: Jeffrey Boam wrote The Phantom and he also wrote Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

Simon Wincer: He had already written the script when I came aboard. Jeffrey is no longer with us, sadly, and he also wrote a version of this Indy that’s coming out. I can tell you a story: I came back from doing a film in Namibia called Young Black Stallion, which Frank Marshall and Kathy Kennedy produced along with Fred Roos, and we were editing at Kennedy and Marshall’s down in Arizona and I came into a room, and they were all watching Phar Lap, which was a horse-racing movie I had done in Australia, and I said, “why are watching that?” And they said, “We’re going to produce this movie, Seabiscuit,” which ended up being directed by Gary Ross, who ironically was represented by my ex-agent, who was the same guy who got me on Phar Lap.

Anyway, the next day, we’re back in the editing room and George Lucas sticks his head in and says, “Simon, how are you? I heard you were here.” I said, “What are you doing here, George?” He said, “We’re meeting about the new Indy film.” He invited me to have lunch, and there’s George Lucas, Steven Spielberg, Harrison Ford, Frank Marshall and Kathy Kennedy. And…

Exclusive Interview with James Rollins
27/05/08, 6:34pm EST

Resident TR.N Media Relations Director James "Shipwreck" Bradley sits down with famed novelist James Rollins and author of the Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull adaptation. In this unique, and only second interview given by the author before he begins his Indy tour, Bradley discovers the process of creating an adaptation, what makes such a respected author tick, and the need to read the newest full-length novel when the author lets slip that more is in the book than captured on film.

Here follows and excerpt from the interview:

Shipwreck: What type of research were you able to achieve and did any of it involve seeking out Crystal Skulls of your own?

James Rollins: You know, there is a weird bit of serendipity involved in this project… almost creepily so. First of all, even before I read the script, I had been finishing up my next novel (The Last Oracle, due out June 24th). The book involves a group of modern-day Russian scientists who are doing research with autistic children who show miraculous savant talent. Their research was attempting to unlock and harness the power of the human mind, much like Irina Spalko in Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
So I had already done vast amounts of research into Russian experiments with psychic powers. Secondly, I already had a crystal skull in my “cabinet of curiosities” (along with a fossilized hadrosaur egg, an ammonite shell, and a section of jaw and teeth from a tyrannosaur). So it was strange to discover that crystal skulls were going to play a central role in the Indy 4.

Or you should have heard about it by now as this adventure (made in 1992) was once nicknamed as "Indiana Jones 4" and is today still considered to be one of the best Graphic Adventure games ever made!

But who exactly wrote and directed Fate of Atlantis? Well, let me introduce you to Hal Barwood; a true legend among the adventure game developer!
Hal Barwood has recently finished his work on Mata Hari with other gaming legend Noah Falstein -- their first new graphic adventure game in years -- and Hal was so kind to take the time and talk with Mike French about his career so far and his work on the Indiana Jones video games.

Of course, it wouldn't have been correct to talk about the Indiana Jones games with that damned video games section closed... So! I am glad, and relieved, to announce that the Indiana Jones Video Games section has returned! Revised, expanded and accessible to everybody!
Especially note -- not that you can miss it -- the brand new Fate of Atlantis header illustration created by the very talented Jose Angel Villar!
