The metaphysics of the Indiana Jones movies is very perplexing

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?

Well, it (and Gremlins) started the PG-13 rating.

Yeah, there was total fuss.

This is much worst news than Star Wars IMO.

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.

Me neither, cause then I'd have absolutely zero reason to see them.

christ this reminds me i saw Temple.. at a festival in summer with a VERY loud sound system and fuck me some bits of it are as good as terrifying.
