This is the place to talk about Indiana Jones -



Raiders is - in my opinion - one of the 5 best movies ever made - Pulp being the BEST

Raiders is - in my opinion - one of the 2 best movies ever made - Taifu being the BEST



Could vote as well right now, but lets be fair and wait till friday.

I’m not a fan of Indiana Jones, I never saw the Last Crusade either.



Out of raiders and Temple of doom I liked the 2nd one better.



I’m seeing the new one because let’s face it, there is nothing else to see at the cinemas currently.


#4

I like Raiders because it has a little bit of everything in it:


  1. adventure
  2. action
  3. romance

    4 nazis getting devestated by the Angel of Death

#5

Raiders! All the way! No sequel could ever compete with it.


#6

I’ll go see the new one tonight, can’t wait, I’m so excited.



I don’t know which one I prefer between Raiders and The Last Crusade… The whole trilogy is awesome but I’d hesitate between these two…


#7

I really can’t choose between Raiders and The Last Crusade…but Temple of Doom is definitely the weakest.



So far the new one has a very high rating on imdb! :smiley:

They’re all great! An archaeologist who can kick butt - thats what us women really want! I like them in the order they came in, Raiders being the best. I think the problem with temple of doom is the annoying woman and kid - and that scene where she has to put her hand in the hole full of spiders still gives me the heebie-jeebies.

Yeah. I think Temple of Doom was just too cartoonish. It was like making fun of Indy. That character of Andy was indeed very annoying. The best part of it was the dinner they had at the palace. “Oooh, snake surprrise”, “Chilled uhMonkey brrrains”. That was so retarded it was funny.

In weak Chinese accent: "docta jones!"



Believe it or not Temple of Doom was the center of much controversy. Spielberg was criticized for the graphic content and the satanic element in the rituals. I can even remember Spielberg stating that he wouldn’t let his own kids watch the movie until they were old enough. I was 10 when it came out and therefore wasn’t allowed to see it. By the time I was old enough to rent it myself I was like “wtf? this movie is fucking lame”. By the time I was old enough to rent Deliverance, on the other hand, I was like “wft? this movie is really fucked up!”

First off, I want to correct my previous post, where I called that bitch character “Andy”, it was “Willie”. Doesn’t matter. Just sort of shows how much I gave a fuck about her.



Uh, luckily?, I was able to watch Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom when it first came out. I was nearly 6. The most vivid memory I took away from that first viewing was the evil dude reaching into that stupid guy’s chest and grabbing out his heart. That, and that scene when their rail-car jumped the track, and it was so obviously dummies in it. Nothing that bothered me though. Actually, the fake ass dummies bothered me more than the whole evil cult thing.





edit: I believe I saw the 1977 version of Buck Rogers for the first time around then, and I swore it was the most awesome movie. So, that should help illustrate how little I thought of ToD.


#12

Last Crusade is the best.



“No ticket”


#13

Is it weird that after reading the poll, I automatically thought Kilgore was responsible for it (and of course he is)? I think it was the “Crytal Skulls” that did it.

Damn this topic reeks of cowflop!

Raiders by a mile. My fourth favorite film behind Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill and the Matrix. The other three Indiana Jones are still pretty decent, even the new one. But they are not very watchable. Raiders I can see over and over and over and over and over again and still enjoy it.
