As a sometime railroader, I can tell you it'd be impossible to drop through the floor of a caboose, avoiding the brake rigging and wheel sets, and manage a safe landing to the side or directly...

She hit a plot hole.

An equally important question: Where did the truck full of Russian soldiers go? The truck too slow to catch up? Mighty efficient of them.

It's not just a matter of a score growing on you. The actual mechanics of JW's themes are different. They aren't nearly as complex or evocative. Comparing the sound and tone of a score is one thing,...

No need to patronize. I'm as calm as can be and was merely suggesting the correct choice of words. No issue with your prose. If there was, I'd tell you to say "you're" instead of "your" but this is...

I think you meant to say she's getting some "flak" from critics.

Slack is something good. Flak is not.

And this could be filed under the Marion's Role thread...(not to be silly and self-modulate...

"Isn't that just like a whop..."

The Untouchables (1987) -- "Isn't that just like a whop. Bring a knife to a gun fight."

The phrase "knife to a gunfight" has been used in various ways since then.

I thought of a line I actually...

My apologies -- I guess mentioning the "first" (and failed) marriage attempt fuzzed my judgment with reference to an actual one, but with all due respect, how can one discuss Marion's role (as is the...

Abner's Little Girl

The only thing Marion said that made me laugh: "I told you that because I thought we were gonna die."

And, I hate the scene, but a lot goes into setting the joke up:

"Why the hell didn't he finish...

I chose continuity error over the use of a telephoto lens, but don't be surprised by the effects that "special lenses" can have over imagery produced.

No, Marion doesn't punch Indy.

Indy pulls his gun out, points it, and never fires it once -- or any gun for that matter.

The punch sound is back in abundance -- in fact, probably more so than in...

tl;dr Feels Like Last Crusade

It's very light in tone, but also very lush sounding.

A robust orchestra with a variety of tones and melodies, but still very light, occasionally more playful than others. Sounded to me like the...
