...it actually seems like the writers of the Indy movies don't end up making much else that's good. Maybe someone should've warned David Koepp.

Indiana Jones has had a real lack of sailors since Katanga.

I want to see a Katanga movie. THAT'D BE AWESOME.

Simon Katanga

Simon[19] Katanga (George Harris), is the captain of the Bantu Wind, a tramp steamer Indiana and Marion use to transport the Ark to the United States. He reappears in a Marvel Comics sequel, where Indiana bails him from a Panama City jail after being charged of rum-running. Katanga and his crew take Indiana to the Aleutian Islands, where they are attacked by pirates, who commandeer the Bantu Wind. Following a battle, Katanga regains his ship.[31]

According to the Wiki'
The word Bantu was first used by Wilhelm Heinrich Immanuel Bleek (1827-1875) with the meaning 'people'


So Katanga captained the People's Wind? /snigger

i've been afraid to come into this thread before now. i just watched all 3 of the films in preparation for seeing #4 tomorrow, so i just came in to say this and then i'll be gone.

Last Crusade is a fuck of a lot better than Temple of Doom.

*Curtain comes down and AH and Papa sing*

We could've been anything
That we wanted to be
And it's not too late to change
I'd be delighted to give it some thought
May-be you'll agree that we really ought
Two, three, four

We could've been anything
That we wanted to be
Yes, that decision was ours
It's been decided we're weaker divided
Let friendship double up our powers
We could've been anything
That we wanted to be
And I'm not saying that we should
But if we try it, we'd learn to abide it
We could be the best at bein' good guys

Flowers of the earth
Who can even guess how much
A real friend is worth?
Good guys, shake an open hand
May-be trusting
If we try to understand
No doubt about it
It must be worthwhile
Good friends do tend to make you smile

We could've been anything
That we wanted to be
Yes, that decision is ours
It's been decided we're weaker divided
Let friendship double our powers

You give a little love
And it all comes back to you
(Da da da ra da da da)
You know you gonna be remembered
For the things you say and do
(Da da da ra da da da)
You give a little love
Andit all comes back to you
(Da da da ra da da da)
You know you gonna be remembered
For the things you say and do
(Da da da ra da da da)
(Repeat and fade)


*Take a bow with AH*

Thank you, you've been a wonderful audience.

Now don't go rushing off luv. We've got to do this nice and slow and take a poll on it.

We can get AICN funding if we do it right.

Well this thread certainly wandered way the fuck off topic.....

So to recap:
Those with good sense and better taste have out voted those with the attention span one has come to expect from the "video game" age.

But the loser just won't give the fuck up.

Man, this sounds oddly familiar......

Hehe! A bit like Indy himself.

We are the two facades of Henry Jones Jnr. One is the dog, the other is the acheologist.

In all truthfulness, I think it's been a tight race, through all the stupidity that AH and I started.

I think ToD is a very good film. I still don't think it has the involvement that TLC did for me. I think that the script had a lot of time and investment in Indy and there was obviously care put towards each character but I can also see why people like ToD. It's a great film with some impossible action. And it works on it's own level.

I will say that the greatest thing about Last cursade is that the action was possible and yet both films lost that realism, which could be seen as a shame or Speilberg going for the bigger, better, deal.

I wonder what could have been if Indy was just kept in the realms of the possible?

I'm not entirely sure how this thread has managed to bypass you in terms of the rather obvious nature of the posts. For quite a few people it seemed quite clear but...

... it was all intentional.

OK, cat out of the bag, but methinks a few heads nodded in the "people who get this thread" stakes should've told you something. ;)

Anyway, despite this, I put it back to coherence as asked for with a proper TOD defense. I hope that helps in some way to alleviate the mischief. Vegeta succinctly put why the two fans of each movie prefer one or the other earlier, I think. Which ultimately puts the entire silly charade to rest.

What is amusing... sorry to say, is those who thought it was entirely serious - the Winslow comment (no offense Winslow) and my sudden banning certainly brought a wry smile. OK, and some panic (didn't expect to be banned but now I can see something of a funny side to it).

Well, that's becuase Indy is so obviously Dumbledore in the prequel and he fucked 'Reach around' many times. I say it was planned that they fall into an Indian Colony with lots of slave boys. Indy planned the entire trip. He knew it was Che's plane and while everyone was asleep he paid the pilots to bail out at that point. The pilots knew what was going to happen that why they were laughing and left Indy in the land of boy rogering....exactly where he had a hard on to be.

Racist and Paedophile, I tells ya.

Indian Jones and the Rent boy of doom.

At least I laugh at your joke (yes, singular), Tape wouldn't give you the time of day.

Re: RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK

From Collider:
Read Damon Lindelof’s Love Letter to RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK

From Hero Complex:
‘Raiders’: Damon Lindelof’s love letter to a ‘perfect movie’
In honor of the 30th anniversary of “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” Emmy-winning writer and producer Damon Lindelof, in a guest essay for Hero Complex, describes seeing the action-adventure film for the first time when he was 8 years old. Let’s just say the movie made an impact on Lindelof, whose credits include “Lost” and the 2009 “Star Trek” reboot.

GUEST ESSAY

I remember with great clarity the last time I peed my pants.

This was not, contrary to later reports, an “accident.” It was a decision I made of sound mind and body and one that I make no apologies for. Despite overwhelming opportunity to release my bladder the way most civilized people do (that would be into a toilet), I made a conscious choice to do otherwise. I offer only two points in my defense; The first is that I was 8 years old. The second, and much more relevant, is that I was in a movie theater watching “Raiders of the Lost Ark” for the very first time. And there was not a chance in hell I was missing a single second of that glorious movie.

Truth be told, I had initially resisted the idea of going to see “Raiders.” I was much more interested in seeing “Clash of the Titans,” which opened the same day and had a Pegasus in it. Ultimately, however, my dad argued that “Raiders” was the superior pick because it had Han Solo. I narrowed my eyes suspiciously — “But… Han Solo is frozen in carbonite.”

“This movie happened before that.” My dad responded.

“How could it happen before a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away?” I reasoned.

“Because this was longer ago.”

“How much longer?”

My dad leaned down, quite serious, and whispered, “The 1930s.”

And thus, I was effectively duped into seeing what even now, three decades later, stands as one of the most perfect movies ever made.

And here’s the thing: Although it’s easy to reduce “Raiders” to a “popcorn” movie — a piece of escapist adventure with fantastic action — very rarely is it appreciated for its pure innovative genius. This is something people seemed to be well aware of back in 1981 (it was nominated for a best picture Oscar), but over time, the legacy of “Raiders” seems to neglect just how incredibly revolutionary it was as a film. Therefore, as a debt of gratitude (and for everything I’ve stolen from it in my own work), I feel it’s only fitting to write a long overdue love letter to one of my favorite films ever. So without further ado…

Dear “Raiders of the Lost Ark,”

You are awesome. God, you are awesome.

I have seen you, in your entirety, more than one hundred times. I know there are folks out there that have seen you more than that, but they don’t know you like I do.

I really know you. I know what music you listen to and where your scars are. I know that you like to be kissed where it doesn’t hurt. And I’m sorry if that seems a little “creepy,” but hey, you’re into snakes and melt people’s faces off, so we’re speaking the same language, are we not?

So what, exactly, is it that I love most about you, “Raiders of the Lost Ark”? Man … I don’t even know where to start. But let’s get past the obvious stuff that all your other admirers seem so dazzled by (the whip!!!) and talk about what truly makes you unique.

I could go on for pages about just the little things. Like the sound you make when Indy punches someone in the face. Or that Marion’s superpower is drinking. And don’t even get me started on the coat hanger. Where did that Nazi even get that thing? Did he special-order it? “I need somezing that vill terrify people when I take it out, but then give them a false zense of relief when I reveal it is simply somezing on vich to hang my coat.” Seriously. The best. But I know you’ve probably heard it all before and therefore, I’ll stick to the big stuff. First and foremost…

I love you because Indiana Jones is a nerd. Granted, a highly capable nerd who knows how to ride horses and fight real good, but still, at his core, Indy is an academic who’s motivated purely by his desire to find and retrieve really cool stuff so he can put it in a museum where other nerds can appreciate it. Also, he wears glasses and gets nervous when hot female students write the words “Love You” on their eyelids. Do you have any idea how much commitment is involved in writing “Love You” on your eyelids? It’s really hard! Not that I’ve ever done it.

Because I haven’t.

And while we’re on the subject of Dr. Jones, here’s another thing I love about him. He’s actually scared of stuff. This doesn’t seem like something that should be celebrated, but it’s actually quite rare for the hero of a movie to be scared of anything. Do you know what Green Lantern is afraid of? Fear. He is afraid of being afraid. Does that even make sense? Here’s what makes sense to be afraid of — Hissing Cobras and Gigantic Bald Nazis with mustaches trying to kill you. And it was perfectly OK for me to be scared of them because Indy was too.

You know what else is wonderful about you? That over and over and over again, Indiana Jones has failure rubbed in his face, yet he refuses to give up. He gets the Golden Idol…. But it’s snatched away by a Frenchman. Indy finds the Well of Souls and recovers the Ark. It too gets taken away from him. Same Frenchman! Now Indy gets back the Ark and … oh no, Nazi submarine! They take the Ark and Marion… but Indy gets the drop on them with a bazooka! And yet, he can’t bring himself to destroy the Ark, so Indy is captured.

By the Frenchman.

Yeah, I know his name is Belloq. And I’m pretty convinced that he is another reason I love you so much. Because quality French bad guys are hard to come by and Belloq is la crème du la crop.

And so, we now arrive at your ending. This, more than anything else, is why my love for you is an undying one. Because we all know how movies like you are supposed to end. The hero fights off a bunch of evildoers, saves the girl, gets the thingamabob away from the bad guys before they can do any harm with it and then say something kinda cool before he rides off into the sunset.

But this, sweet Raiders, is not what you did.

Your big climax is not affected by Indiana Jones at all. He’s tied to a pole with Marion the whole time, completely helpless as Belloq and his Nazi pals open the Ark. And while most heroes would perform some incredible act of selfless bravery, what does Indy do? He shouts at Marion to not even look at whatever is coming out of the very thing he has coveted for your entire duration. And you know what?

I listened to him.

For the first 20 or so times I watched you, I shut my eyes tightly as I heard the Nazis scream for what seemed like five minutes. And when they finally stopped, I slowly peeked out to find Indy doing exactly the same thing.

In that moment, we were one. Terrified. Awestruck. And most of all, relieved that it was finally over.

Now I fully appreciate that Indy was rightly pissed that the Ark was ultimately taken away by the same shady Intelligence dudes who hired him in the first place (“Top people” indeed. Hrrrmumph!). but if they hadn’t, I wouldn’t have been treated to your final crowning achievement. I would never have seen the Ark, now packed unceremoniously in a simple crate, being wheeled down an impossibly long aisle in the largest warehouse ever. And for reasons I am far too lovestruck to fully articulate, let me leave it at this –

In a world where movies and TV shows often end in ways that are sometimes unsatisfying bordering on outrage-inducing (yeah, yeah, I know), your ending, darling Raiders, is absolutely, exquisitely perfect.

And that is how I shall always remember you. Locked away safely in the warehouse that is my heart … fully aware that it’s highly possible that you will burn a hole through my chest or at the very least, make the rats inside me run around in uncomfortable backward circles.

I love you.

Always have. Always will. And I am deeply grateful for the countless hours we have spent together. I will treasure them more than you can ever know.

Your Biggest Fan,

Damon

P.S. Do you have a mailing address for “Close Encounters of the Third Kind’”? She left her T-shirt at my apartment.

More censored than it's current PG rating? or is that adequate when compared to, say, the gunplay, drinking, violence and horror in Raiders of the Lost Ark?


Personally, I think Indiana Jones And The Temple Of Doom fares far worse. An ugly, nasty little flick and while I think those who accused it of racism are overstating the case a little too much, it does leaves a sour and slightly unpalatable taste.

Definitely, the most unattractive of Steven's movies and one I believe he's not too pleased about either.

RAIDERS had a 50s serial feel but with updated values such as Marion as the strong feministy love interest, the politically correct villain choice of Germans, and the conspiracy stuff at the end with Indy getting stonewalled by g-men who hide the arc in Area 51. But TEMPLE really feels like a genuine 1950s b-movie done with top-of-the-line 80s production value and that's what I love about it. But yeah, Spielberg is somewhat ashamed of it.

Any of the stuff people find politically incorrect in TEMPLE can be found in the Tintin books. Well, maybe not, I don't think Hergé ever had a female character as shriekingly useless as Kate Capshaw's. Hergé was even criticized during his time for how the books depicted various cultural groups. None of it was hateful, it was mostly just ignorant and of its time.

yeah because making Marcus and Sallah total idiots is so much better then Short Round, who actually did shit and helped out.

Don't get me wrong, I really like Indy 3, it was the first Indy I saw in the theaters but it feels to me like Spielberg was making a "sequel" mistake in that he recycles plot elements (Christian artifact vs Judeo-Christian artificat), characters (Marcus, Sallah) but making them funnier then they originally were, villians (Nazis). It has some great action pieces, and is a very good movie, just not better then Temple, in my opinion.

well said, and I'm not sure WHY Spielberg's ashamed of it, but you can tell he is, and that saddens me.

And to stay on topic, even though I'm not at all familiar with TinTin, I can't wait to see this. I hope they market it as an Indiana Jones style adventure and not just another animated family movie. With underage drinking

Temple sucks for several reasons. First, the "artifacts" Indy is looking for have no mythological resonance for us Western Civilization types. We can relate to lost arks and holy grails because we've heard of them, and they're important in our mythologies. These weird magic stones in Temple? Who the fuck cares? Sure, Indy had to save the children, but that just smacked of Spielberg being blatantly manipulative. "We have to care! He has to save the CHILDREN!!" Argh.

Second, the supporting characters basically suck. Short Round is deliberately annoying and it seems that every line of dialogue he has is shouted at the top of his lungs. And he has lots of lines. And that shrieking woman keeps shrieking and endlessly emphasizing what a fish out of water she is and how she can't cope and after ten minutes of this she's intolerable. Where's good, strong, brave Marion when you need her?

Third, the villains are way too comic-book. In Raiders, Indy fought the Nazis, who are villains we can understand and hate for real reasons. These weirdos in Temple are just too unbelievable, like characters from a Lovecraft story or something. Indy should be dealing with more realistic villains.

Fourth, the film just seems assembled out of over-the-top set pieces. Jumping out of the airplane with nothing more than an inflatable raft? Sure. Why not slide down the mountainside on it while we're at it? The whole dinner scene was pathetic - nothing more than an extended sequence of gross-outs. I'm sure the twelve-year-olds in the audience loved it. Then there's the mine race on the rails - Spielberg just ticking another item off his to-do list. Essentially, this whole film was just an exercise in going through the motions. No heart, no inspiration. It plays like it was made to fulfill a contractual obligation.
