This is excellent, Speilberg reworked the same gag, not that he hasn't done it before….

Not that unusual, Indy's brother, nor is there anything wrong with it. Some of the greatest directors have done an entire movie twice.

Cecil B. DeMille ("The Ten Commandments" 1923 & 1956)
Zoltan Korda ("The Four Feathers" 1939 & "Storm Over the Nile" 1955)
Alfred Hitchcock ("The Man Who Knew Too Much" 1934 & 1956)

Spooky how those remakes were 1-2 years before "Crystal Skull" takes place.

Speaking of Spielberg reworking bits from his lesser films, these shots are from "Hook":











Saw this the other day and half expected to see that rock formation crumble to reveal an emerging flying saucer.

Why do you think that comparison is "excellent"? Indy smashing blocks with a bigger stone than Mac is not a "reworking" of Robert Shaw destroying the radio. It's not as if Roy Scheider was also trying to wreck the thing.

Out of all the similarities that I've posted over the past year, the post you decide to comment on bears no merit.

In both scenes, an object was about to be destroyed by one character, but the other character thinks they are about to get beaten. It's the exact same sight gag. Why do I think it's "excellent"? Because it has the same beats. Because it was a less obvious similarity. Because I was in a good mood that day. Or maybe just because. Who cares.

Here's my question:

Why are you such a dick?

Well, that's my mistake then. Quite recently, I bought the 30th Anniversary 2-DVD edition of "Jaws" and didn't notice the similarity. However, I'm not as familiar with Indy 4 as with the previous 3, therefore, didn't remember that Mac thought Indy was going to beat him with the stone. (See, I'll admit when I'm wrong but if Halloran had actually bothered writing something to go along with his screengrabs, I wouldn't have questioned it.)

So, yeah, nice one on Halloran's part.

Personally, I think that "Split Second" is the most excellent similarity so far.

My mistake, I thought you were actually familiar with the subject at hand, and were in one of your sparring moods.

*sheathes sword*

Until next we meet.

The Ford Custom Roadster Hot Rod:



http://www.barrett-jackson.com/appli...&aid=443&pop=0

A perfect '50s homage.

Just watching Earth Vs. The Spider (1958) which features a very similar Ford Hot Rod:



Looks like this one, but with the engine covered:

The Magnetic Monster (1953)

In "The Magnetic Monster" (1953), there are scenes with various, metallic objects moving about but one part brought "Crystal Skull" to mind. While trying to find the source of the magnetism, a man grabs a handful of metal washers and throws them in the air to see where they go. They get stuck to the ceiling:

Analysis of Indy 4

Hello,

this is my first post on this board, but I am a reader for at least 10 years.
Some time ago I did an analysis on Indy 4 - I tried to find all the references to other Indy works as well as other movies etc. The Raven was one of the sources (and it is mentioned there).

Below is the link to it:
http://film.org.pl/prace/indiana_jon...a/analiza.html

It is written in Polish, as this is my native language. I don't have plans to translate it, but there are a lot of pictures, so you can guess what I am writing about.

P.S. Sorry for any language mistakes - As I wrote English is not my mother language.
