The Top 7 Indiana Jones titles, ranked by goodness

Indiana Jones 4 hits theaters next summer, and Lucasarts just registered several titles with the Motion Pictures Association of America Title Registration Report (according to Slashfilm.com). And so now, without further ado, I'm going to rank these titles in order of what would make the best, most impactful... title. Number one is a bit of a surprise, but I think it's the best choice.

7. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
This one sounds like the title for a Uwe Boll movie. What the hell are they thinking?

6. Indiana Jones and the Quest for the Covenant
Indiana Jones has always dealt with items of a religious nature, but this one sounds more like a title for the Christian alternative hero, Indiana Jesus.

5. Indiana Jones and the Fourth Corner of the Earth
Since when does the Earth have corners?

4. Indiana Jones and the Destroyer of Worlds
This one is sort of cool, but sounds more like something for a Fantastic Four sequel (granted, that would have been a cool title for the movie that came out this summer) than an action-adventure-comedy.

3. Indiana Jones and the Lost City of Gold
The "Lost City of Gold" is always a good fallback, but it seems so cliché. Hasn't "Lost City of Gold" been used in other movies before? And for some reason, The Phantom comes to mind.

2. Indiana Jones and the City of Gods
This has been the title that has been referenced quite a bit in recent months, so the assumption is about as safe as it could be that this will end up being the title of the new Indiana Jones movie. That being said, it's a pretty cool title with a lot of mystique. Still, it doesn't hold up to our pick for the new Indiana Jones movie...

1. Indiana Jones and the Advent of Viagra
How can you top this one?
