What order did first watch the Indy Trilogy? Did you watch them in order the first time?
I saw Raiders first, LC second, and ToD last.
I wasn't allowed to watch ToD until I was a certain age so that's why it's last.
Well, let me see. I first saw LC in theaters in 1989 when I was 6. I really don't remember if I liked it b/c I was so young, but I DO remember being scared of the rats, and I asked my Dad why Barbie was in a movie!? (I laugh out loud now that I thought Elsa was like my 'Barbie' doll on the big screen-And you know, I don't think Mattel ever made a Nazi-esque outfit so who knows where I got that idea, but hey when your 6... )
I really didn't get into Indy again until circa 1997, when I was in junior high. I saw the SW trilogy (20th Anniversary Edition) on the big screen and I thought Han Solo/Harrison Ford was sooo cool, and pretty hot too! (Lucky Carrie Fisher!) Anyway, I then went back and re-discovered Indy, mainly fueled by my interest in Harrison as an actor and love of travel.
LC when the public channels around here showed it for the first time... I think it was '92. RotLA and ToD couple of years later. We had an arts teacher who actually had a huge movie reserve stored in a cupboard in his classroom. He also had the whole trilogy there. I snatched the two I hadn't seen yet with me one day... and returned them on the next lesson. He never noticed that those two vids had been AWOL.
I didn't watch any of the movies in the theatre...I think I first saw them when they came on TV. I have a vauge memory of watching TOD one weekend afternoon...I'm not entirely sure when I first saw them or what film I saw first but I was pretty young. Probably some time in the early 1990s.
When I bought the video's in the mid 1990s I watched them in order, Raiders, TOD, LC, but these days I like to watch TOD first because it's a prequel to Raiders.
ROTLA, TOD, LC.
I rented the videos when I was around eight or nine becouse a freind suggested it and my parents hadn't seen them since the 80's. I was born in '89 so I never got a chance to see 'em in theaters.
Location: At the front row of Indy's class at Barnett College - a girl can dream! recently moved from UK and now in Pennsylvania, USA!!!
Raiders, Temple of Doom and then Last Crusade.
I remember seeing Raiders on television when I was about 12 (in 85') and then when I was about 14, I saw Temple of Doom. When I reached the age of 16 I saw Last Crusade on the big screen, and I became an Indy fan after that showing.
Raiders I loved as a kid, TOD scared the hell out of me so I never really liked it. And I saw LC in the theater, it remains the only one Ive ever seen in the Theater. I do remember walking out and my dad telling me that would be the last Indy film ever, I was really sad about that too How are you going to tell a kid that? Thats the equivalent of telling him Santa Clause doesnt exist.
P.S. For you Raveners who didnt know Santa doesnt exist...Im sorry, but its true.
The Indiana Jones Trilogy is one of the few that I watched in order of their release.
I saw RotLA on TV when I was maybe 8, and again maybe 9.
Then ToD a long time later, about a year ago.
Then half of LC taped of of TV from a friend, and it stopped midway, so I knew I had to get the real thing to know what happened.
So we have all three VHS, and then got the Trilogy on DVD I believe a day after the release, or the night of the release, or something like that.
I saw Raiders of the Lost Ark first, Last Crusade second, and Temple of Doom last. I watched Temple of Doom tons of times because that was the only one the video store had the wasn't checked out. Now I only watch them in order on DVD.
I'm not sure. Might've been RotLA, ToD, LC. Mght've been ToD, RotLA, LC. I know for sure I saw LC very last. I was pretty scared of ToD when I was like 6, but I had to sneak around the corner and watch it while my dad thought I was in bed.
I first saw all of them upon their original theatrical releases, so I saw them in release order (and first watched The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles during its original run, between the releases of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, naturally).
I did experience many of the books, comics, games, etc. much later than their initial releases, though (and still have yet to experience some), and couldn't say what order I did them in.
ROTLA was one of the first films that my dad rented when we had a video recorder for the first time in 84 I think it was. So watching films like Raiders, Back to the Future, Gremlins, Empire Strikes Back really bring back fond memories of a time when a piece of technology like the VHS recorder was such a massive innovation. Renting a video on a Saturday night was a ritual for a long time when films werent as accessible as they are nowadays. I sound really old in saying that I know.
TOD we watched on a pirate copy and LC I went to the cinema to see.
