Thanks for accepting my registration!

Hello all!
I rewatched all the Indiana movies recently and realized why I loved them when I was a kid. So here I am.

Welcome! So share! When you rewatched them, what exactly did you realize? Why do you love the films so much?

There are a lot of intense and realistic action scenes that I had forgotten about over a decade. A couple of examples are the boobie traps in South America and the Flying Wing scene in RotLA. And the movie had the most realistic gunshots I had ever seen. The movies were very entertaining despite being very old movies.

I know that there are a lot of historical inaccuracies, but then the movie is fiction to begin with. So I don't mind the historical inaccuracies. When I was a kid, I didn't even know about Nazis when I watched the movie for the first time. So when I watched it again, my childhood feelings for the Indy movies were brought back to me.

Another surprise was Toht. He turned out to be the most creepy movie villain I had ever seen. I had forgotten about him too.
