i think that bats would be cool, but they were used in the novel Indiana Jones and the Seven Veils. i like the idea of hornets, too.

Creepy crawlers? The worst offenders that come to mind are Shorty and Chattar Lal. Bring them back for a rematch... to the death.

Giant wallet raping life suckers. In 3D, so the audience can share the joke with the film's accountantcy firm Spielberg, Lucas & Ford

Well, beautiful just because it's a jab at a movie you despise. For the rest of us, it's only a really clever quip (I'm giving credit where it's due ).

If I said, "KOTCS was lame", would you say I'm the next Da Vinci?

Oh, right, the topic...I still support the demands to see sharks.

No, but seriously, sharks are evil, and while they may not crawl, they creep around in the water looking menacing:

Hence, why I'd love to see them in a film. That scene in the comic would make for a badass moment in a movie.

I presume you kid about sharks being evil, right? Jaws, masterpiece that it is, really unfairly hurt their reputation.

Yes, Peter Benchley get them a bad reputation!

But you never know from their lifeless black eyes which one will attack.

Quint's monologue about the USS Indianapolis is a chilling addition to the mythology:


Quote:
QUINT

(flat and quiet)

On her and torpedoed right off her.
Into the drink with 900 other clowns
...Started with 900 anyway...floating
in that big warm Pacific.

(the light surfaces again)

Must have been like a dinner bell
in there...Explosions, and half
the guys bleeding. Soon as the
sharks came homing in on us, we
went by the Manual, of course...
Kept trying to float in groups...
doin' what if said, splash at 'em,
yell at 'em, hit 'em on the nose,
they won't bother you...all that.
They tore apart about a hundred
men, the first night. And pretty
soon, when they stepped it up, and
you'd feel 'em bump you, and guys'd
get pulled down a couple of yards
away, and it got to two days...and
three...Well, some fellas couldn't
take it no more, just peeled off
their life-jackets, got it over with
...We were in the water 110 hours.
Sharks averaged six men an hour.

(nails Hooper a hard look)

They're all experts.

(spits in the ocean)

In truth, never finished the book. Was so turned off by how frustratingly lame it was compared to the astounding holy-cow-this-movie-is-beyond-flattering-adjectives that Berg's film was.

But still, sharks. In Indiana Jones. Petition-time!

But I still like the idea, maybe Indy could light fire to something to get it all smokey, and then swim away or something? Like he could hear the swarm from a distance and as for a lighter from his companion that smokes (at the reluctance of Indy), and Indy lights a torch to calm them. Maybe it could be like ToD, just replace the water surging through the mines, with the hornets.

Using CG for insects is totally permissible in my opinion. Bugs look unreal enough already!

I think that was the exact thinking for the prairie dogs. Look how that turned out.

And bugs maybe look unreal, but they don't look fake like half the scenes in the ant hill looked. If they can actually bother with good effects this time then that'd be fine, but don't bother if you can't pull it off.

I doubt that was the thinking behind the prairie dogs. And besides, my comment was half-joking.

I suppose the question to ask here is: how on Earth would you do the ant scene, then, if CG was banned from production? How do you possibly make killer ants look more real than how they were done in the film? They're ants: they don't require a crap-ton of detail on their exoskeletons. I doubt animatronic ants would be either practical or more realistic.

And keep in mind, I'm not being hostile with this point. I like ya, Spurlock, and would be glad to keep the conversation going if it's civil (in spite of my snark).

I think that there needs to be an influx of old women flocking around our hero. Ripping at his clothes, clawing at his flesh and gumming his skin.
A moving sea of blue hair, wrinkled skin, with the smell of Polident in the air...
