Ok lets go round and name our fav indy moment. Wether it is from the movies or the books and comics, it doesnt matter. Just name ure fav indy moment.
Mine would have to be the begining or Raiders. Its a classic 1 to pick i know, but it has been my favorite since i was a kid. Indy avoiding the light to not set off the trap, Indy avoiding the foot panels that would send poison darts his way, and dont forget the boulder chase. This is also where we find out that Indy has a fear of snakes when he is in the plane with Jock & Reggie the Snake.
I also think this is the part of all the movies where Indy is the most mysterious. You dont know anything about him or his life and he is very quiet. He only talkes when he has something intelligent to say (If only my sister would do that.).
Remember this is only my opinion. That doesnt mean its right wrong or indifferent. Have fun with this.
I agree. The opening scene of Raiders is my favorite as well. In fact it is pure cinematic genius. I also like the scene in ToD when Indy and Shorty are in the room with the spikes. The truck sequence in Raiders is another favorite.
In LC I like the whole entering and escaping the castle Brumwald (sp?) part.
The part in Temple of Doom after Indy wakes up from the Black Sleep and the screen cuts to the Thuggee guard beating up the kids and then the mine car flashes on Indy. We then hear a "thwack" from Indy's whip and see the guard go flying on the ground. This scene made me want to be Indy when I was a kid.
At the end of the Basket Chase in "Raiders", just as the truck starts heading down the alley, Indy comes around from behind the corner, the Raiders theme picks up on full octane, he raises his pistol and starts firing. Man, that scene still gives me goosebumps.
And later on...
Belloq: "It's a transmitter...a radio for speaking to God, and it's within my reach."
Indy: "You wanna talk to God? Let's go see him together, I've got nothing better to do."
Ah, I could do this all day.
OK...one more: ToD--"It wasn't my hands it was my...my misunderstanding."
Cairo Swordsman does his moves, Indy draws his Webley and pulls the trigger.
The Thuggee henchman do their moves, Indy goes for the Webley, realizes its not there, gives that half laugh thing, and then goes for his whip and gets a sword of his own.
Seeing those together makes them even better than alone!
There are plenty of others and lots of them are subtle like when Indy tips his hat after snatching the idol in RotLA or when he comes face to face with that snake stature in ToD. It's the little things he does really that makes him so cool
Temple of Doom was such a huge part of my 7 year old life when it came out, particularly that whole Club Obi Wan scene. It was the reason I wore a white dinner jacket to my Senior Prom 10 (YIKES!) years ago, and the reason I wore a more accurate tux to the Fort Lee Centennial Ball two months ago (I'm a reporter and Fort Lee is the town I cover in New Jersey).
LC: Indy shoots through 4 Nazis with one bullet from the Luger.
