No way

Definitely watched the special features but haven't read the book. I'm sure at some point they filmed some shots in the jungle but there is no possible way that 95% of that scene is shot practically....

I just watched the sequence again. There's no way that's true. There's a couple shots with some real stunts but, the vast majority is chromakey work.

THAT would be awesome. Always wished Disney had done more with the Rockeeter property, shame it didn't do better at the box office, I always have a lot of love for that flick. Now that they have the...

Haha, you're probably right. I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area in California. It was 23 years ago so I must be misremembering. :)

Totally agree. The episodes sewn together for the DVD awkwardly transition into each other. I understand that chronologically putting the two spring break adventures into one film makes sense but it...

For better or for worse, I think that order is conventional wisdom among casual fans. I think that a lot of people actual favor TLC ABOVE Raiders because the Sean Connery element is so popular....

Did we ever see Maul use force choke? I have no doubt he could do it but only remember him using force push in TPM. Either way, Maul would probably win, just wanted to slip in that Cairo swordsman...

Pratt could pull it off

I like Pratt. Enjoyed him on Parks and think he's turning into a solid action star. I believe he could pull this off and they could make a good flick with him. I worry about Pratt saturation...

Oh no!

Very sad. I thought he was great in that role. Big shoes to fill after Peter O'Toole's legendary performance and I think he succeeded admirably. Taken from us too soon! Just like the gentleman who...

Thanks for posting. I thought he did a great job as Young Henry Sr. I think it's great that he's doing a version of what Sean Connery's character would have been like back in the day rather than just...

I hate to admit it, but this always bothered me too. Gotta just have a little suspension of disbelief I suppose.

Mystery of the Blues for sure! Always loved the first episode as it originally aired, weaving in the Corrie Carrier story with the later Flannery story line. Must've watched that a million times as a...

A Love of History and Adventure

This series hit the sweet spot for me as a kid. I was about Corrie Carrier's age at the time (but I preferred the teenage Indy adventures because they were closer to the films) and already had a love...

Man! All the talk about Indy's Hair! That was the style at the time, it was just generally slicked back. Since Indy's out adventuring, it falls in his face. Never phased me. Loved this sequence as a...

I think it's funnier

"Bad dates."

Right, I think in terms of tone and content, the Pirates brand is probably closest to how they would do Indy. All I know is that it would be super awesome to put that new Han Solo Infinity figure...

You're absolutely right, SCUMM was the scripting language they used to build the games, SCUMMVM is the emulator. I believe the VM is for virtual machine, right? :confused:

Good points. I think they do manage to make the Indy brand fit in at Disneyland while keeping it dark. I do agree that they would water him down to just an "adventurer" more in the mold of Nick...
