Do they have top men working on it?

Still doesn't wash away the stank that was Crystal Skull.  That and Ford's really become a grumpy old bastard...

Ordinarily, I wouldn't care at all about what notes some actor scribbled in an old script.  But Ford's portrayal of Indy in this movie made the whole thing.

As someone else on the internet recently pointed out, all of the major events in this movie, even the Nazis being destroyed at the end, would have happened even if Indy had never been involved.  His character exists in the narrative just so that the audience can see those events through his colored perception of the ultimate meaning of it all.

Did it accidentally get autographed by Hitler somewhere along the way?

The 12 seconds of dialogue he added completely changes the tone of the movie.....

We need a complete PDF scan of this made public pronto.  I'd go over it like the Zapruder film.

That's true of every movie except Temple of Doom because he saves the children and returns the stones.

But Raiders:  Nazis faces would have melted.  And actually, his involvement caused WWII since if he stayed out of it, Hitler's face would have melted off!

Last Crusade:  His father would have led them to the Grail.  Eventually they would have made it into the chamber.  Eventually they would have chosen the correct grail and eventually the whole thing would have crashed down on them.

Crystal Skull:  They would have returned the skull to the aliens, which they did ANYWAY, and they all would have blown up!

Okay, stand back. All of you, stand back. Get back.Okay, Tsar_Bomba1. You win. Blow it up. Yes, blow it up! Blow it back to God. All your life has been spent in pursuit of archaeological relics. Inside the Script are treasures beyond your wildest aspirations. You want to see it open as well as I. Tsar_Bomba1, we are simply passing through history. This... This is history. Do as you will.

Well, the dad would not have run through the obstacle course for them.  They needed the dad to hold as hostage, to make Indy run it for the chalice to bring back and save him.

Well, like I said, they EVENTUALLY would have made it in!  Hell, the could have climbed OVER the temple and lowered themselves down with a rope (since the "invisible bridge" clearly had clouds and sky above it)

But they would have sent enough Nazi scrubs through to make it in....

I guess they could have brute-forced the whole obstacle course. Build some sort of shield to block the saws, carefully step on all the stones until the right ones are the only ones left, and... uh... push prisoners off the cliff until one of them bumps into the bridge? Then you just have your mooks try cups until one of them doesn't die.

From the notes:

<i>"Two five-minute fight scenes, back-to-back? Fark that, when it gets to this day of shooting, I'm gonna fake diarrhea. It'll make a great story one day."</i>

Who knew? A hoax, just like everything else.

Without Indy:
Marion killed by Nazis (once they find her).
Dad killed by Nazis.

One page has a line crossed out with a note "TOO SOLOISH" - "You always wanted to be in the thick of it," said to Marion in the Well of Souls, similarly to Han Solo's "You said you wanted to be around when I made a mistake. Well, this could be it, sweetheart," said to Leia in the asteroid field.

Nah, chances are they would have roughed Marion up and she would have given them the medallion.
And they HAD his father already.  They only shot him to make Indy go after the Grail.  But if Indy got his head chopped off in the first booby trap, they still would have sent in Nazi after Nazi until they got through!
Only difference is with Indy involved, his dad got shot!

I'd argue against the first point. They would have roughed Marion up, she would have given them the medallion and then they would have raped and murdered her because they are evil Nazis

Now on the second part, I just like the idea of watching Nazi after Nazi go through with a "nope, agent 412 got his head cut off too....Nazi 413....Steve....you are up next"

...and that's possible.  But the outcome of the movie would have been the same.  Without Indy, Belloq would have opened the Ark and it would have killed everyone.
Then it would have sat on that island until more Nazis said "Where the Hell ARE those guys??!!"
Then THEY would have gone and gotten it and taken it to Hitler.

That actually happens, but it's the laborers, not the nazis. Indy and co and watching this occur when Marcus is "re-apprehended."

Hebalo: That actually happens, but it's the laborers, not the nazis. Indy and co and watching this occur when Marcus is "re-apprehended."


Right, my point is even if Indy wasn't in the movie, they wouldn't have just stopped because they ran out of laborers.  And they wouldn't have said "Welp, we gave it a shot!" and left!

They would have kept going and EVENTUALLY gotten in there.  And EVENTUALLY picked the right cup.  Chances are they would have tortured the old knight until HE told them.  But there were only so many cups.  50 Nazis turn old and then you have it!
Indy wasn't necessary.  His father was, but not him.

SO in your world, the Nazis got the ark at the end of Raiders? Because if not, then that's a change Indy caused. Yes. the Nazis were real sweethearts, they would have just let everyone go with a stern warning. (rolls eyes).

So saving the lives of two of the most important people in the world is nothing? I don't think you understand Indy as a character very well.

No, I'm not talking about him as a character.  The original point was the Indy didn't really change the outcome by his existence.
You are correct that in Raiders the Nazi's didn't end up with the Ark.  But my point was without Indy, the leader of the Nazis would have been killed and World War II quite possibly would have been prevented.

They never explain how an army with the Ark is unbeatable, unless you are to believe the Nazis would start a ground war and carry the Ark with the lid off while they all marched blindfolded in to battle.

This shiat again.

Without Indy, they NEVER find Marion and thus never get the medallion. Without the medallion, the Nazis may or may not even find the ark, if they did, it would have been bling luck and taken them years. Unless of course someone got curious and entered the chamber Indy and Marion exited. Nevertheless, the Ark ends up in our hands to be studied by top men.

In Last Crusade, without Indy and the diary, they never find the grail. Henry Jones Sr. would not be able to lead them to it with the diary. They had limited resources and most would have perished and fled after seeing enough of the heads roll. Besides, Last Crusade really wasn't about finding the Holy Grail.

Crystal Skull? I have no idea what the fark you're talking about.

Are people really debating the realism of Indiana Jones here? I mean, I think I understood at 6-years-old, when I saw a man's heart ripped out and his chest heal back up, that these movies have an inherent element of silliness to them.
 
2013-02-03 10:38:40 PM

Fano: He was in The Conversation before he hit it big, I think.


He had lots of minor parts in TV and movies from 1966 onward; in 1973, he played a rogue-type character in American Graffiti directed by George Lucas.  He was working as a set carpenter on another movie when he met up with George Lucas again, and George encouraged him to audition for a rogue-type character in his new movie...
 
2013-02-03 11:07:49 PM
Ford probably met Lucas through Lucas' friendship with Coppola.  Ford had a small part in Apocalypse Now.
