The Great Debates: Indiana Jones or Han Solo? And the Winner is…

Indy vs Han

Last week I put forward the question: Which of these two iconic Harrison Ford characters would you choose, Indiana Jones or Han Solo?

The votes are in, the poll is closed, it’s time to formally announce the winner.

Click through to see who won!


By a two to one margin (65.93% vs 34.07%), FMR voters selected Indiana Jones as the winner!

I personally thought the results would be much closer, but I’ve seen many times that a “tough call” can turn into a landslide when many people narrowlyย land on the same decision.

As usual here, to the victors goย the spoils, so let’s see what some of the Indy voters had to say!

Well, there you have it folks! Dr. Jones trumps Han Solo by a 2 to 1 margin!

Was justice served? Anyone feeling robbed? Let us hear it!

We’ll be back soon with another edition of The Great Debates to put you to yet another difficult decision!

  1. Awwwww! Poor Han. I feel like I always vote for the loser in these things….
    Indy’s still awesome though. I’m not as upset with him winning as Han losing. Someone’s gotta win though….

  2. Hi, Fogs:

    No real rigid competition in a solid franchise (The first three films) from an era of opulence and the best parts of Saturday afternoon serials.

  3. The like button has been loading for 10 minutes. So I’m leaving a ‘LIKE’ note instead. Looks like my pick was on that winning landslide.

    Have you seen The Thirteenth Floor? If so what did you think? If not, and if you watch it, post a review. I’m curious about your reaction to the film.

      • It was older. 1999. Nominated for a Saturn Award for Best Science Fiction Film in 2000. I couldn’t decided if it was an under appreciated murder mystery or slightly to predictable for something that was trying to come off as layered and complex. Or else I made a really good guess very early in the film and and never recovered from that point.

  4. Hmmm, not sure how I feel. I certainly can’t boo Indy. But I still lean towards Han. That said I think Indy won when I pitted the two against each other last year.

  5. I voted for Indy, but I expected the race to be a lot tighter. Well either way, the winner would be deserved. They’re both awesome characters.

    • I’ve found out that no matter how tough the choice is… It can still turn into a blowout. If everyone says “Oh god, that’s a TOUGH decision” and then votes the same way anyways, that winds up leading to a blowout. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

  6. Well you have to remember that Han is a stuck-up, half-witted, scruffy-looking nerf herder, so it is not a big surprise Indy won. ๐Ÿ˜‰
