The 3rd dumbest moment really isn't. Mythbusters tested it (using that specific scene as the example) and found that if you could keep the raft level in air with you on top of it it would slow you down enough to survive the fall. Its highly, highly unlikely that anyone could do that and walk away from it, but isn't that what Indy's all about, surviving against narrow odds?

Ok, but what about the subsequent tumble through a dense forest, miraculously without hitting any trees, and the raft (with Indy and co inside) FALLING OFF A GIANT CLIFF?!?

Whoa! I'm astounded by that video - not by anything having to do with Indy, but Gremlins 2: The New Batch and Back to the Future - Part III?! I didn't have any idea these were even commonly regarded this way. Both movies were extremely well-received when my friends and I saw them, back in the day (1990), both by our group and the entire rest of the audiences we saw them with. I do occasionally see a comment online these days by someone who doesn't care for either of the Back to the Future sequels, say, and wishes they'd stopped after the first, but I didn't think these responses were widely held. Are they? Really?

Obviously, I'm pretty much in agreement with the video's commentator on both of those movies, as well as the one about the guy with the hat and the whip. I have to say I agree about Spider-Man 3, too, though with that one I was at least certainly aware lots of people think it sucks (and while I do enjoy the movie, I agree it's not as good as either of the first two).

This isn't from Cracked (I wish the title thread could be changed to something like "Various Indiana Jones lists and articles), but here is a nice piece that showcases different video games that have been influenced and share themes of/by Indiana Jones over the years.

I'm not too sure if this has been posted anywhere on the forum, but here is an article showing Harrison Ford's handwritten notes on his copy of the Raiders script.

It is. Plus I almost melted my old laptop one night. I left it too close to the campfire when I went to take a leak. Close call that one was!

It seems our hero made it to number five in '13 Movie Plot Holes That Will Ruin Your Childhood'.

And, he arrives at number 40 in this list as well as 26.

Hot poker torture.

Sorry for disturbing this grave, I just had to.

It has little to do with Indy, but I found it relevant nonetheless:

I guess this explains why our latest lavish orgy seemed about 3% more lavish than the previous one.

Always happy to help Cracked researchers, with a script I bought, scanned and uploaded.
