I said, "Well, I need to have a little bit of previous knowledge even if God is doing it." So they sent a courier over with the script from Los Angeles, gave it to me at three o'clock in the afternoon in London, collected it again at eight o'clock in the evening, and he returned the next day to Los Angeles. So that was an expensive read.

Great short interview in any event. Hurt should write an autobiography if he hasn't already!

Indy doesn't look very rough and ready in this shot, his trousers are far too clean for a start.

George Lucas — I was thinking that this old guy could have been his mentor. He could have known this little girl when she was just a kid. Had an affair with her when she was eleven.
Lawrence Kasdan — And he was forty-two.
G — He hasn't seen her in twelve years. Now she's twenty-two. It's a real strange relationship.
Steven Spielberg — She had better be older than twenty-two.
G — He's thirty-five, and he knew her ten years ago when he was twenty-five and she was only twelve. It would be amusing to make her slightly young at the time.
S — And promiscuous. She came onto him.
G — Fifteen is right on the edge. I know it's an outrageous idea, but it is interesting. Once she's sixteen or seventeen it's not interesting anymore. But if she was fifteen and he was twenty-five and they actually had an affair the last time they met. And she was madly in love with him and he...
S — She has pictures of him.

You know, I just watched "Temple of Doom" again for the first time in ages, and I was wondering: if the Thugees can hypnotize people with their magic blood and have voodoo dolls that work, and if the sacred stones glow during their sacrifice ceremonies ... then doesn't that legitimize their evil supernatural magic power, and sort of imply it's the villagers who are misusing this magic, intrinsically evil power?

If there is a better piece of writing on these films, I haven't read it.

Didn't know until yesterday that Temple of Doom was a prequel.
The part of my personality that's still eleven years old thinks that's big news and wants to talk to people about this.

also the part of me that thinks the coolest part about Blade Runner is the "is he an android?" discussion and the part of me that desperately wants to know if Bond is one man or five different guys who go by the same code name James Bond.

Yeah wow that last article is intense. I never realized what a horrible person Indiana Jones is.
Of course, he's a cartoon though!

Does anyone else feel any poignancy in the Belloq/Marion relationship, culminating in his upset at her being tossed into the snake pit with Indy, or have I just watched Raiders so many times at this point that now I'm only looking for new things?

saw Temple Of Doom around midnight on an *actual cinema* at a festival last week at very loud volume with a whooping, cheering crowd. it's scarier than i recall! the bit where they force him to drink from a skull in the Temple and all that stuff.. real intense. i'm surprised there wasn't much more of a fuss made back in the day about the horror aspect of a kids film, being as it was a PG over here. maybe there was a fuss made and i forget?
― piscesx, Saturday, 3 August 2013 19:57 (2 years ago) Permalink
Well, it (and Gremlins) started the PG-13 rating.

Well if they were to come up with a really really good screenplay for one more film then obviously I wouldn't be complaining, but how likely is that to happen. Indiana Jones without Ford and Spielberg would not be Indiana Jones.
If they do spin-off films with his kid that wouldn't really bother me.
― I wish to incorporate disco into my small business (chap), Saturday, 7 December 2013 03:45 (1 year ago) Permalink
Me neither, cause then I'd have absolutely zero reason to see them.
