You can see here how Steven is under the spell of George. It's not hard to imagine how Harry was hynotized, too.

George is the MacGuffin.

Nice.

The alternate metaphorical interpretation, of course, is that they couldn't agree on where to look for the picture.

That's nice, too. But there's just a little too much subservient adoration in the picture. Steven has eyes for one man only!

There's definitely something off-putting about the expression they caught Spielberg with. As with the fridge, Steven is trying to pass off having a double chin as his idea first.

Very true, but George is still winning by volume. (Bigger and louder than a bullfrog as well I'd imagine).

George looks a bit stoned. Was he toking up with Harrison just prior to the photo?

Too late.

I think paying homage to the previous Indy films was part of Crystal Skull's downfall. I'd hate to see this mistake repeated...

Indy blows the thing up with a dead serious grimace.

I could see it. It would be a nice little bookend if done right, and no one would see it coming.

I kind of like the idea of Indy shooting the MacGuffin, but isn't that how the Tomb Raider movie ended? Didn't she shoot the Triangle (worst McGuggin name ever) to stop the bad guys from using it? It's been a while since I've seen that movie, so I might be remembering it wrong.

You're right, of course. Just playing with the idea.

This is a good point, although I'd expand it and suggest that paying homage to the previous films was part of the downward slide of the entire series. LC in particular was hellbent on referencing the previous films (well, mainly RotLA).

I consider the idea of this thread to be a little bit more subtle, really. I wouldn't want an exact mirroring of the dialogue from RotLA, just a kind of thematic referencing.

And yes, Randy_Flagg, that may have happened in Tomb Raider (and a whole host of other films), but I don't think many would criticise an Indiana Jones movie for ripping off Tomb Raider.
