Han Solo vs. Indiana Jones

This week, with Chris firmly back in the saddle, we present a full episode based on a viewer suggestion. Well, a full episode based on what a viewer suggestion made us think about. Close enough, right? This is a big one, folks! Han Solo and Indiana Jones. Both icons, and both played by the same actor. But much like Highlander rules, there must be only one. And Sean Connery must be involved, somehow.

Tough choice, but I'm gunna have to go with the one who shot first ;) I mean Han Solo doesn't need a whip, He has a Wookie.

Also: I WANT THAT COMIC!

Have to say, irrespective of the judges decision, I consider this one a tie, you just can't put one over the other between these two.

I guess this is relevant-


Honestly I love both characters so it didn't bother me that Indy won against Han Solo.
Also tell me more about that cross over comic!

John McClane has been beat up far more.

I love this show.

I just thought you guys would like to know that.

We need more light hearted debate.

Actually, they just find Han Solo's Corpse.

Here's the name of the comic.

Crap Ninja'd
Funny how io9 came out with an article about crazy indiana jones things today.

Kyle: "-man has a whip in his car".

How would you explain that to the cop that pulls you over one day? o_O

The killing blow: "Nuke in the fridge."

What should have been the counter: "Surviving being frozen in carbonite, surviving a kablillion degrees below zero in the stomach of a tauntaun, and having the balls to open fire on Darth Vader not once, but TWICE (saving Luke at the first Death Star, and in the dining room on Cloud City)."

This match was thrown!

I have to disagree Indy being the most knocked around action character. John McClane takes that honor.

One word: Deckard.

I think you both owe me one.

All I have to say is:

He survived in reasonable proximity to an exploding Death Star due to being in the space equivalent of a fridge - the Millennium Falcon. Pretty sure that's just as valid.

Except Kyle Han Solo is usually getting shot at by Storm Troopers which we all know can't aim worth shit so that's hardly saying anything.

Oh yeah? Indiana Jones had the balls to look HITLER in the face, not crap his pants and salute him. How about that?

Then again Hitler is this world's Darth Vader so Indy and Solo are pretty much even. Still Dr Jones wins by a long shot just because he's a cultured badass who can recite poems in greek or latin while kicking your ass. What can Han Solo say? "Herp derp" probably.

While I agree that Blade Runner was the best movie Harrison Ford was ever in, Deckard was not his best role.

I think Han Solo should of won personally, he's gone through far more and even faced Darth Vader shooting the guy twice without hesitation because he's that heroic. That, and I remember correctly he befriended a Wookie. I consider that to be something.

Indiana Johns is a cool guy, but surviving a nuke by going into a fridge? As cool as that is, the concept is unrealistic. I mean least give the guy a broken bone or bad skin after that.. you can't go unpunished by that (unpunished as in brutally thrown around inside like a rag doll.)

EDIT: I said "that" a number of times in this post for some reason.. weird.

That was exactly my thought. It's like my mind is a tree and you're those cookie elves.

OT: Barring Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, I like Indiana Jones better. But no amount of nostalgia in the world can make me forget how horrible that movie was. Han Solo wins by default.

These guys have either improved, or I've lowered my standards :P. Either way, I actually enjoyed this. Cool, now I have something to watch on Thursday.

As for this debate: I could care less about either xP. If I had to pick a side... I'd choose Indiana Jones for scenes of bookishness.

This was definitely one of the better ones, maybe because I fully understand everything they are talking about ;)

Indiana Jones' father is James Bond technically. I'm a big Solo fan (a Han boy if you will) but I feel that needs to be out there

I beg to differ. When did Solo or Jones show any weakness? As in, down and out with nowhere to run. Deckard, ironically, is one of the most human characters Harrison Ford played.

You could argue it's not his best role. But it's his best acting.

I think there should be a best archeologist debate! Daniel Jackson vs Indiana Jones!

Except that Daniel Jackson wins because he travels to other planets, other galaxies, to other dimensions AND at least once, travels through time.

... that was an unfortunate hand gesture you made when you said "comic where Han Solo and Indiana Jones meet". Makes me think I'll only find the comic on yaoidoujinfreak.com...

Eh...a few years back, this'd be quite different, but both took a nerfing with rehashes and sequels.

By your reckoning, Han Solo wins... After all, he is a Nerf herder!

Crap, you mentioned it out loud! Now he's going to go back and re-edit them. What have you done!?

Please don't let there be any retroactive re-edits of Indy, please.

I don't think that it's his best acting either. I think his two best films, acting wise were Frantic and Witness.

Ford's a difficult case because he's from the Shorn Connory shchool of achting, where the entire character seems based off one emotional response to any situation (See Keanu/Winona).

Bladerunner, I think, let's him show far more of a range.

BTW the Comicgasm link tries to load a java script that NOD32 hates not computer savvy enough to know what all is wrong with it but my NOD considers it to be high level threat.

I would personally give this one to Han Solo, for all the reasons that have been mentioned. My issue with Indiana Jones is that he's a terrible representative for archaeology (he is, after all, a grave robber, treasure hunter, and looter). I can enjoy the Han Solo character without feeling guilty, whereas when I watch Indiana Jones all I can do is cringe at the bad 'archaeology' that is being done. As a character he is cool and smart, but completely unrealistic. While it is conceivable that a rogue space pirate gun slinger may exist, you would not find an archaeologist with a PhD (such as Dr. Jones) out looting tombs. They would get blacklisted and never allowed to work in the field again.

you guys should do something with stargate next. maybe stargate vs star trek.

I don't recall Han ever beating the crap out of someone twice his size, I prefer indy.
