Those were the main "new" sounds that I heard, too. The water in the temple and the sounds in the Cairo bar. One of the sound effects in the bar seemed to be someone shuffling a deck of cards. I also noticed stuff with the truck's engine during the desert chase.

Surprised that you didn't know about this shot. The plane & people boarding it were filmed on land in an empty lot so the background is a matte painting. The dock & water were shot separately and then superimposed on top. Pans of water were put in place so that light reflections would flicker underneath the wings. It's a marvelous combination and the fact that you never noticed until now, is a testament to ILM's craft.

When you go to "Doom", sit in the middle of the theatre for the fullest experience of the audio. Have fun!

I went to see TOD tonight. First of all I think the passage of time has been kind to it in my eyes, because I'm not now comparing it to Raiders like I used to when TOD first came out. I never got to see it on the cinema so I was really looking forward to it and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I had a pleasant surprise in that it was the Blu ray version they showed, (i think), as I haven't watched the Blu ray all the way through. But the uncut torture scene I thought was much more intense than the one I've got used to seeing over the last 30 years. The addition of Indy telling them to leave shorty alone as he was whipped stuck out. All in all that section of the film from discovering the temple to Indy being converted was better for being uncut IMO, much more menacing. Oh, and I'm sure additional screams were added as Indy was changing as the black sleep took hold.

Soundtrack wise the screams of the children from the mine was probably the major thing that stood out as you say stoo.

On the big screen the matte paintings of the village and the palace looked very convincing considering the age of the film. Although obviously some of the other effects don't hold up as well now.

For some reason I found willie and short round less annoying this time round too, and Harrison is at the top of his game I think.

To complete the original trilogy I went to see TLC last night. This is the only one of the originals that I saw in the cinema when it came out.

Picture wise and soundtrack wise there was nothing that jumped out as being more noticeable this time around.......... apart from Elsa's nipples when she comes out of the bathroom in Venice

The film got some real belly laughs from the people in attendance, and in all the places where the humour is intended. In particular some of the Marcus scenes.

I think this film is still my second favourite behind ROTLA, its in a similar vein and I think after the darkness of TOD that was an intentional ploy. Connery is very good in it. The screen relationship between him and Indy I still think is the films core. One of my biggest criticisms has always been the use of Marcus and Sallah in this, with too many stupid moments. But I didn't feel that way last night. I just enjoyed the ride

Obviosuly some of the sets look too studio bound and it seemed more noticeable on the big screen, in particular the temple at the end and some of the effects have dated too, but as with the other 2, it has a charm and quality that other imitators have tried and failed to emulate. I still feel the ending is a perfect way to end the series and possibly the end bond (no pun intended) between father and son is a very satisfying resolution for me.

To summarise it was great to see the 3 films on the cinema, it really hits home what a good quality series it was and still is. I noticed how much detail you can miss when you're only watching them on a tv screen. It also highlights the quality of the cinematography and how well some of the shots are composed.

Not a cinema showing, but Raiders gets it annual showing at xmas on 28th Dec on BBC1 here in the UK.

Raiders really is a film I associate with this time of the year after its premiere on terrestrial TV on ITV on xmas night, which was a massive TV event. I reckon if memory serves me correct that it must be 30 years ago this year in fact.

My wife and I went to see The Last Crusade here in mid-Missouri on Sunday afternoon. They're doing a flashback cinema series this summer and Crusade was one of the selections. Now all I need to see is Temple of Doom on the big screen and I will have seen them all.

They'll be showing it on Wednesday night as well.

It's Xmas and it's that time of year for the traditional showing of Raiders on BBC1. Watching it now.

Just noticed a strange edit, in the usual version when Barranca hits the floor Belloq steps over him and speaks to Indy. In this version Barranca hits the floor and it cuts to Belloqs lines as he's standing over Indy.

A quick heads up: All four movies are available on Hulu's streaming service if you subscribe. Of course, putting a Blu-ray into your player might be just as easy!
