It's the only Indy prequel, though even saying that is a bit of a cheat, because it's just a different tale in the Indy setting, and not really a prequel at all even though it takes place a year before the events in Raiders...  

yes its a prequel, really.

I understand that, and true to the definition of a prequel, ToD applies. I'm just saying that I don't really think of the Indy films to be individual parts of, say, a trilogy. They're more like smaller parts or adventures of a single person and unrelated to a larger picture or thread.

Yes, I uderstand, and kinda agree.

You can watch the Indy Trilogy in random order and still understand them completely.

On the contrary, you need to watch the Star Wars saga in order (or at least, 4-5-6 and then 1-2-3 if really really necessary).

But if you watch Raiders before Last Crusade, for example, you'll love catching those little in-jokes like when Indy and Elsa are in the Venice's catacombs and she finds an Ark painted on a rock. :D

However, if you watch ToD before Raiders, you will not understand why Indy goes for an empty holster when confronted by two swordmen (and miss the Basket Game quote), or why he flat out says in Raiders he doesn't believe in magic and superstitious hocus-pocus, even though he used a friggin' chant to defeat Mola Ram.

Indeed, althought those aren't essential aspects.

It's not like Star Wars, when if you watch ESB you miss all the Star Wars part.

Why on earth was ToD in the Poll? It was there to set us all off balance or something? Well it worked for me since I had to think twice before answering :D

ROTS

If I should take Indy to a count ToD would be it but nope I do not think it counts ;)

Revenge of the Sith. Indy music is great, but I have yet to find a full score. And let's face it, Star Wars music (in my mind) is more complex and interesting than anything else out there. AOTC was a little weak, and TPM music was interesting, but ROTS had the most depth and power.
