Just watched once so far, and my favorites are the intire warehouse one and the jungle's all the way.
I don't like the motorbike one for the simply fact you can very well see when is the stunt and when is not the back and head of Harrison sure is very distinctive) he plays some bike scenes and others are clearly the stunt...sigh
Thanks for posting the chasing bike clip.

Too many to choose from...

the ants and the fight with Dovchenko.

The opening credits.

The bike chase.

The diner fight.

The cemetary.

The snakepit.

Doomtown.

Mutt, Marion and Indy in the back of the truck.

Whoever mentioned Indy kicking Dovchenko through the glass - couldn't agree more. I thought that looked lame in the trailer and absolutely amazing in the film.

The more I think about the film the more I find to love. I really do feel sorry for those that hated every moment. I actually can't understand how you can enjoy the other Indy films and not find anything to love in this one. I can see and undestand the flaws people are talking about but the film just rides right over it's own problems and gets back to the good stuff pretty quick.

My favorite scene was when the credits began to roll. That was the best part of this movie, and the most relieving.

Yeah, I thought that was awesome. Dovchenko is one of my favourite thugs in the whole serious. Love his introduction.

I also loved the way Indy got his hat back after that fight. Slowly parting the ants with the skull and picking it up just before it disappeared into the ant hill.

Agreed! I love Indy's quick double swings, for lack of a better term. Damn, he's still got some haymakers in him!

After Indy smashes the log on Dovchenko's head, the next shots of Indy wailing away on Dovchenko are some of the best framed shots in the film and really capture the fury of the exchange.

My only complaint? That it didn't last longer. That's just the greedy fanboy in me talking though.

I totally agree that it could have gone a bit longer. But I'll take what I can get.

Funnily enough, my real beefs with the action scenes are that I wanted them to last longer! Actually, for me, pretty much anything with Dovchenko in was awesome.

My favourite scenes?

I liked the quicksand/snake bit. I also liked it when Ox brought "help" back to Indy and company after the quicksand rescue scene. I liked the scene where Mutt and Indy were on the Motorcycle. Both rode into the school libray.

Still.. towards the end, I liked when Mutt handed Indy the Skeleton from the water also.

These are all great scenes! Mutt throwing the snake at Indy time after time had me chuckling.

The bit with the snake. I nearly cried how funny it was!
"I think I can touch the bottom!" "Call it a rope!"

I thought it was a great scene until they actually made Indiana grab the snake...cue the rubber.

It would've been better if Mutt just gave up and grabbed a nearby branch.

Should've stopped while they were ahead...They had the whole crowd going, but then killed the joke by continuing it and, as a result, lost some of the crowd.

I liked quite a lot of scenes, I did like the intro, I think the part with the credits at the start is nice! I'm only 21, but I really liked the 1950s teens in the car egging the Soviets to "go faster!" to the Elvis music, and the landscape looked really nice too.

The warehouse scene was brilliant! When I heard the raiders music from the end of the original film, as they entered the building I was so excited. I wont be able to see the Raider's last scene now without imaging what happens there all those years later. Or, when I see the ark being put away forever, how it infact Spalko's flailing body when knocked out the jeep that causes the crate to somewhat smash open!

The motorbike chase was fun, it really was funny when Indy was dragged in one car window, then climbed out the other side. It was great to see the college again. It was touching seeing Marcus and Henry Jone's photos, to the music from Last Crusade.

I liked the cemetory part too, it was funny when Indy blew the dart in to the back of the warrior's throat.

I enjoyed Indy being forced to stare i to the skulls eyes, when Indiana says near the end "the skull told me to" regarding putting it back, I wonder if people seem to forget, the skull "spoke" to him in this scene. Irina also talks about her obsessive intetions here.

What I do like about the fim also, is the amount of time Indy and co spend "working" with Irina and co, but at the same time, battling against them.The jungle chase scene was great (no need for the tarzan scene, but could have been even worse!). The scene in the chase I especially liked, was the sword fight, and when I saw Spalko fall in to the back of Marion's car I thought "I hope i just saw that right! Marion and Spalko together!".

Though they didn't have a fist fight, I laughed when they turned to look at one another, and sort of raised an eyebrow at the prospect of them sharing a car together. I thought the scene where Spalko was hanging over the car, grabbing the gun and firing was good, as Marion bobbed down from the blasts. Seeing Spalko kick and punch was good too.

Another scene I liked was just when Indy and co started the chase, and Irina was holding the skull in the sack, and she stared crazily, adamant to keep posession of the skull, the music was good there, and when she had the skull and was getting away some portion in to the chase, the music and visuals were good there too.

The scene where Indys car crashed and then Irina's came flying over towards them as she shouted was amusing too, loved how she lost interest in the skull for a small moment as she tried to evade the man-eating ants. Seeing someone with as much dignity as Spalko being pitted against natural forces like ants, and monkeys did make me grin, had to laugh at the monkey that ran over her chest that made her bend backwards in the car, even though it is confusing why they decided to attack her!

Kind of grinned, and also a point were you realised Irina's obsession, was where she and the Soviets simply mowed down the warriors with guns when approaching the chamber of the skeletons.

The retracting staircase was good, but I wish it lasted a bit longer, and at least someone perished! I think Mac may as well had here!

The end scene with Spalko demanding knowledge was brilliant, she played the part so well, if only her death was a bit more gruesome I'd have been pleased! What does she say though, towards the end when the alien is alive? Does she say she's had enough now, or something? I didn't quite catch that bit.

"I can see! I can see!

No more!

Enough! Enough!"

Ahah that was PURE Indy.

The part with Indy's malinconic expression seeing the father photo with the 'Crusade Theme'.. very touching.

And i really liked the Snake scene, brilliant.

Amen to that!

I can just hear the PETA protests now over the snake being abused.
