nucal: The funniest part of the letter is that when you are denied tenure they don't give you any reason until you lawyer up ...

Indiana Jones doesn't need a lawyer, he'll beat one up and put on his uniform.

entropic_existence: Funny but way too "modern." I think there was a lot of archeology that bordered on "unabashed grave robbing" in the 20's and 30's.

They were too busy shouldering "The White Man's Burden" of ill gotten loot to bother with preserving the history of indigenous cultures.

Not to mention I would rather watch an Indy movie that literally has clones of Shia as part of the plot than watch another one with that shrieking blond harpy and stereotypical asian child."Hang on lady, we gowing fo a wide. OH MY GAAAAAAAAAAAAWD"

raerae1980: Slaxl: I will say this though. Of all the things that happened in all the Indy films, crystal skulls and aliens are the most plausible... actually no, because the Thuggees were a real sect, ok, crystal skulls and aliens are the 2nd most plausible thing. Therefore it's the best film ever made. K? K.

The Last Crusade is still my favorite movie out of the bunch, hands down. Between Venice, Petra, running into Hitler, AND having to rescue Indy's dad (James Bond!!!), there was not a bad scene in that entire movie.

No I agree, I love the Last Crusade.

The hell you will! He's got a two-day head start on you, which is more than he needs. Brody's got friends in every town and village from here to the Sudan. He speaks a dozen languages, knows every local custom. He'll blend in... disappear... you'll never see him again. With any luck... he's got the Grail already.

Does anyone here speak English? Or even Ancient Greek?

I always wished they made a fourth film, too bad they never came up with a good enough script to get that done.

In addition to multiple instances of public drunkenness, Dr. Jones, on three separate occasions, has attempted to set fire to the herpetology wing of the biology department.
