I liked it overall. There are some shortcomings but for me it was much, much better than the Jolie-led films.

I found it very distracting when it came to the bits that echoed Last Crusade. The parts...

I just remembered that during my trip camping across Africa, I lived a scene right out of Temple of Doom:

I have the straps pulled in enough to get those fold lines across the tail of the back panel. In fact, I find pulling them tighter worsens the flare in the upper back. I think you may have something...

Have you also owned, or even just tried on, one of their standard pattern Last Crusade/Crystal Skull jackets? I am curious as to whether this new hero shares with that pattern a noticeably wide back...

The outfit looked lived-in in Raiders and Temple. Less so in Crusade maybe because it looked smarter with the tie. By Crystal Skull it really looked like a costume, to my eye too clearly cared for by...

I get that giving the hat is an expression of respect. I should clarify that what I mean when I ask why would he do that, is was giving away your hat normal? Especially in a time when people wore...

Your ancestry is very cool. At what time, and how, did the Plantagenets cross with the ancient Egyptian line? Was it a close relative of yours whose DNA was used to confirm the remains of Richard...

I was just about to ask if you had received it, as this interests me. Sorry to hear of the quality issues.

I'm curious about the exact details that make it accurate (or not). From the photos on the...

Something not mentioned yet that's always bothered me is Fedora putting his hat on Young Indy at the end of the prologue. I get that it's a pleasing way to transition into 1938 but what is actually...

Thanks, guys.

Regarding Indy being one of the titular raiders, as a kid I interpreted Belloq's saying that he and Indy are alike as a joke at Belloq's expense. Belloq, after all, was not the hero...

I've travelled around a lot countries in Asia, Africa and Europe. The only Indy-ish thing I did a lot of was walking around ancient monuments (For one example, Sri Lanka was good for that).

Yes, you'll never get unanimously positive reception. That should be a given. You tell your story and hope only that enough people like it. At risk of being off-topic to talk about Temple a bit more,...

I've enjoyed it over the years but it's my least favourite of the trilogy. There are a two big reasons why.

Text detail: Indy swigging from a liquor flask?
