The stairs were the deathtrap. There were large stone spikes in the pool at the bottom. Unfortunately, that wasn't made very clear in the film. I think that scene could have been edited better. I...

I love the way he gestures when pointing out the third waterfall. The combination of resignation and terror on his face is great.

That is four minutes and thirty-seven seconds of what is wrong with the world today.

I've been thinking about this and I have a theory. I believe in the cut scene Mutt throws his switchblade at one of the cemetary warriors, hitting him in the arm or something. The warrior pulls it...

What crystal skull?

Also, I really hope they have a reversable cover with the style of the original box set on the other side.

Me. I caved. :o

Don't worry, though. I saw it twice legitamately, and I'll definitely buy the DVD on day one. They're still getting my money. ;)

Whether it's too sweet is a matter of personal taste. It's true that many of its scenes are lighter, like Crusade, but quite a bit of KOTCS is actually pretty dark, especially in the first half. The...

This.

I've heard so many people complain that KOTCS doesn't "feel" like an Indy movie. Well, which "feel" were they expecting? The rough, mostly serious action of Raiders? The bipolar camp/horror of...

Nah, it was funny. I just didn't make the connection at first. I'd love to respond. Unfortunately, the Maharajah doesn't say anything after that. :)



I totally agree. If you ever catch me breaking...

I'm not sure what you mean. I'm not expecting anything, and I still really enjoyed the movie. Such things are just fun to discuss, at least for me.

I gotta give props to Strider. Besides the Moscow bit he was pretty much spot on predicting the plot of Indy 4! :up:

I look at it this way: if you've already paid to see it in the theatre (twice in my case) and there is no question that you will buy the DVD when it comes out, then, at least morally speaking, I...

As for me, I've seen it seven or eight times now. I've lost count. ;)

Both of these would have been great, especially the first one.



Given the vehicles used, I really thought at least part of the chase would have been on the river. The Lego toy made you think this,...

I'd flip-flop Raiders and Temple, but otherwise I agree. It's ironic, but Kingdom has faster, more exciting action sequences than Crusade, but Crusade has more moments of genuine peril. I'd give...

The funniest line for me was during the swordfight when Spalko says to Mutt:

"You fight like a young man: eager to begin, quick to finish!"

Just the scathing way she delivers it while being fully...

A little tweak can make a big difference

I was recently reminded of those Scion commercials that talk about how a small change can have a huge impact (Horse --> Unicorn, or "1-800" --> "1-900"). If you're not familiar with them, that's...
