Does sound like they might have rerecorded it, especially the part when the smoke fills the chamber, where they extended and repeated a section to make it last longer. I can definitely recall seeing...

I thought the question was going to be about comparing him to a magic marker, hi-liter, etc. Heh. In America, we would use the term "grader."

I think he'd be a tough grader. He's a no-nonsense guy...

I voted for ROTLA. The Ark wiped out all the Nazis for him. He was impressed enough to close his eyes in fear, something he didn't do in the other movies. And this was supposedly power directly from...

An experienced world-traveler like Indy certainly must have been impressed if not dumbfounded to see that an exact replica of Al Khazneh in Petra, Jordan had been built in Iskenderun, Turkey.

Frenchmen are not that compelling as protagonists to me which makes me disinclined to want to see a Belloq movie.

I never said Belloq's only villainous trait is his French accent. Way to exaggerate....

Note my use of the term "judge." That's not the same as analyze for historical purposes or whatever. Judging is about deciding what you think is good or bad. To use politics or ideology as a basis...

Nope. No reason for him to go out on that far of a limb. He could've just said she's a great villain, an original villain, etc. And in the same documentaries he discusses his issues with Lucas over...

Willie isn't there to be admired or be a role model. She's there to cause dramatic conflict and comedic contrast with Indy. She's a hot, annoying, highly emotional woman, who do exist in real life....

I don't like villains to come off as "great" or flawless. To me its the heroes that should be admirable, not the villains. If a villain starts looking too brilliant or brave, that's a problem. They...

The point wasn't to have her use the powers directly. Having a character running around reading minds all the time wouldn't be something we'd want to see in an Indiana Jones movie. I like the fact...

These are Indiana Jones movies, so you can't expect to really "get to know" the characters. Characterization is written in shorthand in these films. And I thought it was done better with Spalko than...
