"Indiana Jones and the Dukes of Hazzard"? :D

Until 2008, "Crusade" had always been my least favourite because it was a retread of "Raiders". I saw it the least in the theatres (only 3 times) and...

Welcome to The Raven, John. :hat: Great to see another fan of golden-age Hollywood movies around here and I agree with you about Indy being one of the "raiders".

Nice to have you aboard! :)

There was no zig-zagging in the original run, though. It was up to Europe then back down to Africa again...and then over to India in January 1910. It works.

"STRIKE TWO" might have been a financial Succe$$ but...as lead-in to perhaps the most famous film in the entire world it's a dismal failure. A slick production of A HIGHLY STACKED PILE OF CRAP....

Yes, but you also said that its “birth” was in the 1930s. “Invented” = Born. Jeeze Louise, quit with the dodgeball game.

Erm, don't you mean the 2nd decade? We're talking about the 1910s,...

Film history is a passion of mine so there’s no need for the lesson. ;)

Anyway, you’re entirely missing the point. You say that the 1930s were the “birth of cinema” when it was actually 1895 with...

It's worth pointing out that colour in "Raiders" was tampered for the Blu-ray (and the IMAX version). Many sequences have a yellowish-orangish hue or the contrast has been fiddled with. It doesn't...
