    Finally a good poster!

    by The Game Master

    Indy shows 'em all in Hollywood how to do it. I'm so sick of posters that are just the faces of the stars. Those don't tell shit about the movie. They're just "selling stars". But Indy posters (and Star Wars posters for that matter) have a sense of theme about them. They give an impression of what the movie is about. We who are fans don't need a poster to draw us in. We're already there. But to the outsider, whom posters are really designed to draw in, classic movie poster style like this is what works. If I didn't know Indy (shudder), and saw this poster, I'd be interested. But if it was JUST actors' heads, I'd say "Meh, not interested". So, big points to Lucasfilm. Glad they're sticking to tradition. Now, I can't wait for a film on FILM, opening with the Paramount Mountain, and some stunt men doing stunts!

  • March 10, 2008, 3:19 a.m. CST

    So...

    by GenPion

    Does this make the Teaser Poster any less cool? I hope not. That's hanging over my computer. Still... awesome poster. I can't wait to see this. As much anticipation I have for The Dark Knight, this movie is much higher on my priorities list. May 22nd can't get here soon enough.

    summer posters

    by Quint

    I'd say this summer's posters have been pretty great so far. The Dark Knight posters have been outstanding, my favorite being the Joker Standing Behind the Frosted Glass poster. The Indy posters have ruled, I quite liked the Happening poster, the Wall-E poster and the Iron Man teaser poster. Good summer for poster lovers.

    BAD COMPOSITION...!!!!! Severe Hat Crop

    by greigy just wanted to say

    Indy is just too big, the cropped hat reeks of amateur hour photoshop. That said it has a nice old school feel to it… I hate Icon type posters… ’89 Batman, Jurassic Park, X-men…… posters used to be little teaser trailers all to themselves.

  • March 10, 2008, 3:58 a.m. CST

    Is it me or does Harrison Ford face look fucked up in that poster?

  • March 10, 2008, 4:06 a.m. CST

    Let's be honest, it's freakin' gorgeous.

    by MONKEY BUTT

    That's a darn beautiful poster! I thought Struzan's talent was fading, but I was wrong. We all know when Struzan's at his best, there's no better movie poster out there. It's nearly perfect for me, but to be picky... I wish Blanchett, LaBeouf, Winstone and Allen were different sizes (for composition's sake). I think Struzan's best posters are Temple Of Doom, Phantom Menace and Attack Of The Clones. The composition and sizing are spot on.

  • March 10, 2008, 4:06 a.m. CST

    They had to crop the hat ...

    Anyone know when GL will go back to small experimental films?

    by Hideo Kojima

    Like he said he was going to do after Episode 3 (awesome btw just like the rest of the holy prequel triology) I would love to see some experimental stuff in the vein of THX1138.. and whatever happened to RED TAILS, dammit? Indy 4 will rock though and you haters can suck it... Speaking of haters, TOD haters need to wake up. Temple of Doom shits all over Last Crusade in terms of spills, chills, and thrills.. The first 20 minutes of TOD is pure 30s serial and the remanining is pure pulp. Raiders is the most serial-like of the lot, TOD is pulpy.. so what is Last Crusade? 1930's depression era pre-war slapstick? probably. crystal skulls will be a 50s b movie pulp... yes I repeated this from the other talkback but let's be honest that is... ok I'm rambling now.

    Now that's how you do a poster

    by sambrook

    THAT'S a poster for an event film. Perfect. Ford's image captures his age without taking away from Indy's cool, charisma and status. The composition is nice and balanced, the border's great and adds atmosphere and the bottom action image is a perfect Indy image. Fits perfectly with the other three films in quality and tone and I have strong hopes that the film will do the same. <p><p>Hideo, if there's anything these KOTCS talkbacks have shown it's that there's a lot more love for Temple than most people think. Just luck at how many TOD quotes fill the above posts.

  • March 10, 2008, 5:03 a.m. CST

    Seriously, the whole poster looks cropped.

    by NoDiggity

    Don't those black vines all around the edges look like they are covering up details that would have extended off the edge of the coppring? They don't look like a natural part of the painting. And it does look like the reason is to blow up Shia and make him more central.

  • March 10, 2008, 5:06 a.m. CST

    Nice to see some artwork on a poster

    by kwisatzhaderach

    instead of the usual photoshopped garbage most Hollywood studios give us. The movie poster used to be an artfom in itself. Nice to see some old-style artwork. Well done Dod and Steve! (Now, the movie better be GOOD!)

  • March 10, 2008, 5:19 a.m. CST

    Oh c'mon guys, that's really vanilla

    by IndustryKiller!

    It's the same poster we've been seeing over and over again for years. If someone had said to me "What do you think the Struzan final Indy one sheet will be?" I would say "a big Indy head with all the other major characters satelliting around it." If you were skeptical and all you need was this to alleviate your fears then I suggest you put your guard back up because it really doesn't mean anything. It's just a rehash.

  • March 10, 2008, 5:20 a.m. CST

    And this isnt a criticism but what the fuck is on Ray Winstones

    by IndustryKiller!

    He looks hilarious. Like a snooty French painter or an extra from Newsies. I don't mean that at all as a criticism, I'm just sayin.....

  • March 10, 2008, 5:22 a.m. CST

    Industrykiller

    by sambrook

    Yes, it does look like the other Indiana Jones posters. That's a very good thing. It's still a great piece of art in itself, the fact it matches with the others hopefully says a lot for the motivations and tone of the final film. Anyone wanting something completely different just for the sake of it is either stupid or a hypocrite who would have bitched about how a montage of floating photographed heads above an explosion looked too modern for an Indy poster and why couldn't they have stuck with the old style...

  • March 10, 2008, 5:27 a.m. CST

    And in this film, it will be revealed...

    by Bobo_Vision

    ...Indy's fear of snakes is actually Freudian, and stems from a childhood incident where Indy's Uncle took him to the basement to show him his "python".

    Sherman_Lives

    by jfp2007

    You show how ignorant you are of graphic design when you say you hope it didn't incorporate the dreaded Photoshop. PS is the industry standard and every poster and piece of advertising created in the whole fucking world uses it or something very much like it to some extent. The poster could have been drawn by hand and digitally painted and other Adobe producted used for the type and other non-art elements. Pull your head out of your ass.

  • March 10, 2008, 5:41 a.m. CST

    Yep, Its Really Pretty Ok

    by LaserPants

    Awesome, though? Nah. I think its funny how Indy looks kinda tired and almost a little sad and confused. As if he was saying "I'm 75 years old. I shouldn't be doing this anymore. Where is the remote? Whats my name again?"

  • March 10, 2008, 5:49 a.m. CST

    kwisatzhaderach, I totally agree.

    by MONKEY BUTT

    I place Temple of Doom and Attack of the Clones 2 and 3 on Struzan's best list. Take another look at Phantom Menace. It terms of overall character likeness, sizing and placement, as well as just plain artistic beauty and composition, I think it's Struzan's all-time best.

  • March 10, 2008, 5:54 a.m. CST

    OVER RATED!

    by couP

    wtf is so great about that

  • March 10, 2008, 5:57 a.m. CST

    A small rant.

    by MONKEY BUTT

    I find it quite disappointing and a little ridiculous that we can't download high-res scans of Struzan's best posters online. "www.impawards.com" do their best, but sometimes they're just not out there. I wish I could find pristine high-res scans of all the Indy posters (including Amsel's Raiders) and all the Star Wars prequels and SE's. Why aren't they out there? Are you listening Lucasfilm, Fox and Paramount. Would it be so difficult to provide?

  • March 10, 2008, 5:58 a.m. CST

    Looks great.

    by rbatty024

    I think Indiana should look a little tired an world weary. He is supposed to be in his fifties after all. I always picture Indiana as the kind of hero that can't help but avoid trouble no matter how hard he tries. He doesn't want to get in over his head but manages to anyway. <p> By the way, I heard a while back that they took out the old Indy from the Young Indiana Jones Chronicles. Does anyone know if this is true?

  • March 10, 2008, 6:03 a.m. CST

    Instant classic...

    by Pipple

    I loved them though I was very young the posters actually made the movie seem better just because they were such damn masterpieces. It'd affect how you viewed the film. I mean I knew Hamill didn't have those pecks or no shot in the movie was as epic as some of the art work for the movies but it was still real to me dammit...

    by cornponious

    But I have to say one thing. Karen Allen, though she is still as hot as ever, is seen smiling too much. I'm a bit worried. She just doesn't seem as hard-edged and full of, oh, say "spunk" as in the first film. I don't care that she is 27 years older. It's just... worrisome. <p> That being said, overall it looks like it's going to be a hoot.

  • March 10, 2008, 7:14 a.m. CST

    by AllieJamison

    is responsible for that fucked up trailer and this sub-optimal poster. I mean this is probably better than most of the poster art produced by big studios. But it's a fucking Drew Struzan poster... So why does it look so cram-full, why do some aspects of it look more photographed than painted,...why are Marion's and Winstone's heads put in there so randomly?? Why?

  • March 10, 2008, 7:20 a.m. CST

    Marion's cheesy pose.

    by MONKEY BUTT

    Yeah, it's lame that's she's staring at us with a dopey smile. In a movie poster, the characters should be posed in ways that reveals their personality. Although, now that I think about it, it's EXACTLTY the same pose Kate Capshaw has on the Temple Of Doom poster. Ya know what folks, we're all just too darn critical!

    We got about two feet of snow

    by Abominable Snowcone

    three-plus feet in the drifts. I plowed my drive three times, only so my wife could get out. Otherwise, we were snow bound. My daughter and I killed some time saturday night watching Empire Strikes Back, because I wanted to see the real Hoth, and some wampa action. Tell you what, I really don't like the additions Lucas made to the SE (he had Temuera Morrison redo the famous Boba Fett lines, and he redid the sequence where Vader talks to the Emperor hologram--they added a line where Palpatine tells Vader that Luke is the son of Anakin Skywalker, in case Darth didn't know. Or something). The extra background CGI in Bespin doesn't rankle me as much, but still, it wasn't needed.

    I saw New Hope SE in theatres in '97

    by Abominable Snowcone

    just to check out the new stuff. I'd always known they shot the Jabba stuff with a guy, and wanted to see what Lucas did with it. I like the Boba Fett cameo, but in all it was just not necessary, nor was the other Mos Eisley CGI stuff. I know Lucas felt he was making it the way he'd always wanted it to be, with the latest technology, but the point is there wasn't anything WRONG with it in the first place. I didn't bother with the other two SEs in theatres.

    The CG additions were minimal and felt way more organic than the other two's additions. Also, a cleaned up Hoth rocked my world.

    I did watch Empire

    by Abominable Snowcone

    on Saturday. I have the SE DVD set at home. But in 1997 when they first redid the OT, in anticipation of the first prequel, I saw New Hope in theatres. I agree with you that the Empire additions are less obstrusive and yeah, do feel more natural

    Yup, good ol' Struzan

    by sapno_krei

    Struzan has been using pretty much the same arrangement for decades. See his STAR WARS SE and prequel posters, his Harry Potter posters, his Indy II and III posters. I love his photorealistic painterly style, but boy is it rather anti-climactic to see a new poster from him nowadays. I would have preferred he did something more focused and scene-like, like his GOONIES poster (remember the kids stacked, hanging from a stalagtite?). That said, this poster will still end up in my collection :-)

    by Sicco

    I like the idea and everything, but my god, what's with all the white around the characters in the center of the poster? The back-lighting makes sense, but NOT WHEN THE CHARACTERS ARE IN FRONT OF OTHERS. Winstone shouldn't have any of it, and it should be toned down on Blanchett. Look at the older ones, they are based on the same idea (bright instances in the poster, with lighting on the characters reflecting that), only they didn't overdo it, and they didn't have it where it didn't fit. It doesn't really look very good as it is, but it can be fixed pretty easily.

    by Mr. Nice Gaius

    I have to respectfully disagree. IMHO, nothing beats the Indy going after the Ark on horseback / whip-under-truck maneuver sequence. One of the most perfectly executed and memorable scenes in all of film. That's when everyone knew (if they hadn't already figured it out by then) that Indiana Jones was an absolute badass.

    by Warcraft

    It looks exactly like every other poster by this artist, or anyone else who's copied him. Big main character face in the middle, surrounded by smaller supporting cast members, and a scene of the movie at the bottom. Big effing deal Quint. Prepare to be dissapointed just as much with this film as you were with the SW Prequels. I'm prepared for it, so should everyone else be.

    is okay, but not great because it's too damn comical. It asks to not be taken seriously, so we don't. I mean, a flaming shishkabob to the chest? A frantic search for a diamond on a dance floor, and a container of ice is conveniently spilled? The opening to Raiders is the best.

    by NoDiggity

    A musical number? For five minutes? With hideous closeups of that woman's face throughout. And Indy trading a historical artifact for a boring looking piece of cut glass was utterly out of character. Then you had to believe that a guy who has been poisoned will gradually become more and more agile in his attempt to retrieve the antidote to the poison that should be making him less and less agile. And we are supposed to buy that the bad guys would sacrifice a valuable airplane and risk the dangers of parachuting, rather than simply shooting Indy and Willie in their sleep.

We hear a man grunting and a woman moaning in ecstasy, the camera slowly pans into the room where we see a guy ramming someone from behind. The camera moves closer in and just almost out of frame you can see a television on with a porno playing (that's where we hear the moaning from), the camera slowly moves beside him to reveal he is having sex with a headless corpse.

But aside from the intro and that embarrassing palace feast segment (monkey brains and live snakes? C'mon, George, these are *Indians* for chrissakes.

    Indy and the diamond

    by sapno_krei

    I think part of the character arc in Temple of Doom was to show Indy changing his ways from "forture and glory" hunter to altruistic hero (the movie took place before Raiders, after all).<p> Of course, this would later be contradicted in later stories (Indy III and Young Indy), which showed Indy as being a pretty stand-up guy throughout his life. Unless Temple of Doom was just a glimpse of his "dark years". Man, am I reading too much into this or what?

  • March 10, 2008, 12:20 p.m. CST

    Sapno

    by Abominable Snowcone

    A fair assessment, but Crusade would have us believe that even as a boy scout, Indy knew that important artifacts "belong in a museum!" Of course, between the ages of 14-30, I'm sure he discovers women, and academia, which might make him semi-interested in earning respect, if not fame, as an archeologist. Those dudes in Raiders sought him out for a reason. I myself am an expert spelunker of glovedone's mom's wondrous caverns.

    Yeah, I agree with that. The out-to-get-rich aspect of Dr. Jones probably one reason why TOD is the least watched of the Indy movies in my collection. The other is the incongruency of Indy saying he doesn't believe in magic and superstition a year later in RAIDERS.

    by finky089

    Seems there's just alot of "cheats" for Lucas and SS to overcome to make Abner's return viable, but here's hoping. <p> For me, the Ark stands as one of the biggest obstacles. I mean, Indy and Abner supposedly worked very close together and Indy knew the Ark was "his obsession, really." So much so, that the Nazis sought him out above all others when they found Tanis. Are we now to believe that either Indy had no idea about his mentor's "other" passion? Or did he know all along and we never knew about it? <p> I guess it's possible, too, that maybe Abner "inherited" an artifact or some vital information from another person (a colleague?), but maybe didn't realize how vital the info or artifact was until he was captured. And then was never released because he "knew too much", but could still be of use when/if his captors got close to solving the riddle of the crystal skulls.

    Glovedone-A study of a Fool

    by Kloipy

    for those of you that don't know, but would like to understand what happened in here today. I will help you understand<p> Glovedone first made his annoying appearance in the Brad Renfro Obit, where he started making fun of the guy the day he died. Everybody yelled at him, he just said 'owned' for no reason. Then he found Pillow and I and started his obsession with us, trying to, as he says, own us as well. It didn't work. Then Heath Leger died and he proceeded to make fun of him in his Obit page as well. He got banned, much to the joy of all of us<p> But it wouldn't be the end, oh no. He came back as ZachBraff08, got banned that same day. Came back again as Braff08 and followed me and Finky around (because he is in love with us) spouting his usual unintelligent bullshit, and once again got banned.<p> About a week later he came back as Braffed and followed Jarv, Pillow, Abom, Finky, and I around everywhere we went. Even when we aren't talking to us he comes in and finds us because he wants us to fuck him.<p> Now he is back as glovedone and braffed, and his new persona Biff the Magical Retard. Further study needs to be done to find out if he is or is not Suit and Tie. But it could very well be.<p> Pathetic? Yes. A Loser? Yes. One of the worst AICN trolls. Probably.

    Repeating the Hat Thesis, for Xiphos.

    by NoDiggity

    See, in the original RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, Indy's hat is clearly a new hat that he replaces when it's convenient. We first see it in the beginning, a dusty dirty one, and when he gets back to America, and he sets out for Tibet on the plane, he's wearing a brand spanking new one, but it's the same Fedora, just worn pushed back on his head. This means that when he gets to Tibet, the dirty Fedora he's wearing is the new Fedora he WAS wearing, not the dirty Fedora from the beginning, which means he's already thrown one hat away, (the one seen in the beginning). Then, when the U-Boat boards Captain Katanga's vessel, Indy doesn't have time to get his hat, and is seen climbing onto the submarine without it. Scratch hat number two (along with the jacket). Finally, after getting back to America, he's seen wearing a brand new, clean Fedora, with a brand new suit. So what the first movie tells us is that the Fedora isn't a special, individual hat, just a style Indy likes. This makes all the stuff about Not Losing THE hat in Temple and Crusade sort of in violation of what we saw in Raiders, especially the silly crap about how Indy inherited the Hat from some dick adventurer(and got his liking for leather jackets from him as well. And finally, in CRUSADE, the still images of Indy and his Hat make it look like the Hat is being treated like a special relic, by Indy, because it looks like an ancient piece of crap that's been kept forever, instead of a nice new one that a self respecting dude like Indy would have acquired, instead of hanging on to like a retard. This one element, treating The Hat like it is Holy and Special is a danger sign of fanboy writing to come in this new film, because if they are writing it with an eye on the past, treating every bit of Indy trivia like it's sacred text that must be repeated and included again, we are going to only get Hackery, and Fan-Fiction. Darabont seems like a nice guy, but he seems very proud of a line he claims he wrote in his version of the script "It's not the mileage, it's the years", and it sadly means that the guy is just a fanboy, and was incapable of infusing a script with anything much more than wink wink nod nods to the fans, and Lucas's track record with the prequels has been nothing but recycling and wink winks to the fans. Yes, it's just a hat. Yes, it's just a small thing. And yet, this small little clue, this small complain, gains more significance as evidence of the fanwanking hackery piles up. I thank you for this opportunity to repeat my thesis, and to Xiphos for encouraging me to annoy him with it.

    The Skull in the new poster DOES look shitty

    On May 22nd you will head towards the theater, a dark sense of foreboding hanging over you like a cloud. You will suppress this as silly, and curse me silently. After all, the sun is shining, it's a beautiful day, and how can a new Indy movie be bad? But then you'll be in the theater, and the previews will be over, and you'll start to see that all that has been predicted has come true, searing your eyeballs with it's tired, hacky crappiness, on a big screen where you cannot deny it's reality. At that point, for a moment, you'll realize NODIGGITY WAS RIGHT!!! But then, alas, shame that you trusted the Berg and the Beard, and pride that won't allow you to admit it, will overcome your moment of clarity, and you will return here in a rage screaming NODIGGITY RUINED THE MOVIE FOR ME!

    by systemsbroom

    He's done his homework to put together his argument; people should engage his argument on its terms. <P> I think that nodiggity is probably on to something when he points out (through his elaborate hat-indexed read of the movies) that there is a difference between Indy being himself and Indy being "Indy," and this bit of self-reflexivity makes the movies less enjoyable. Could be. If I take nodiggity right, he views the hat stuff as being a sort of low-caliber version of something like Harrison Ford winking at the camera and saying "I'm Dr. Jones! Time to use my whip! Because that's what I do!". <P> Of course, the rationale behind the hat stuff in the second and third movies could just be that the character was changed/retconned/whatever from a guy who always wears a type of hat from a guy who always wears *that* hat. Which isn't a really objectionable aspect to a character.

    Retconning and Reflexivity

    by NoDiggity

    Thanks, systemsbroom. But I think that the need to retcon it so that it's THE hat rather than a type of hat is the first sign that the films were going to go in a reflexive, recyclic direction.

    Nodiggity, maybe

    by systemsbroom

    two things though: <P> 1) Absent other examples of reflexive, recyclic direction, I think that the hat thing is minor enough that it doesn't really muck with anything 2) My understanding is that the movies are supposed to emulate serial stories. In which case, small changes from film to film don't really matter, because the movies are not documentaries of what happened, they are instead recountings about stuff that this quasi-real figure, Indiana Jones, did. Like how if I told an Indiana Jones story, it would be different in feel and tone (and factual history) than when somebody else tells an Indy story. Sorta like folklore. That's an aspect of these movies that I think people like, and your hat thesis doesn't take that into account.

    The issue of the hat

    by TerryMalloy

    I like the changes they made in the second/third films. It's a stronger choice to have Indy love his hat rather than toss it away when it gets dirty. It's more realistic the second way but more dramatically interesting the first way. Indy loves this fedora so much he's willing to risk life and limb to keep it. We've all had objects at some point in our lives that have special meaning for us. So we can identify with Indy and laugh with him when he goes back to get it.

    Two things, NoDiggity:

    by DocPazuzu

    1) You know, there are actually places you can take hats to be cleaned and spruced up. I'm sure that in the 1930s, that kind of service was available as well. Please prove that the hat Indy wears at the opening of ROTLA and the one he later boards the plane in are two different hats. <p> 2) Please prove that Captain Katanga, a good friend of Indy's good friend, Sallah, wouldn't have sent Indy's personal effects (including hat and jacket) to him after the adventure was over - or indeed that Sallah himself didn't see to it that Indy got his gear back. <p> Your hat thesis is the weakest kind of obnoxious, anally retentive internet nerd-fu, on par with the "holes" ringwearer9 claimed to have found in PJ's King Kong and which he went to great lengths to describe in his legendary KK "review". <p> Please, for your own sake, give up now while you can still walk out of here.

    The Fedora Hat

    by Mr. Nice Gaius

    NoDiggity - I don't think it's a matter of whether or not Indiana Jones is always in possession of the "one true hat". It's more a matter of its relationship to his persona. Let's fact it - the fedora hat is instantly recognized as THE hat of Indiana Jones. It has helped to make his silhouette one of the most iconic images in film.<P>But the significance of the hat is not just in and of itself. I think it has more to do with the idea that no matter what Indy has gone through - no matter how perilous the quest or close the call - he always dusts himself off, puts the hat back on, and gets back to work. That's his image. That's his persona. That's why we love him.<P>You're obviously WAY too concerned and worked up about this (especially this alleged Lucas/Spielberg/Ford/ "nudge-nudge, wink-wink" business). It's a level of obsessive compulsiveness that I just can't relate to. Or feel sympathy towards...

  • March 10, 2008, 5:37 p.m. CST

    DocPazuzu, you are arguing reflexivity at day one.

    by NoDiggity

    You believe that the original film immediately knew how iconic the character would be, and wrote into the film how important Indy's hat and jacket would be to everyone, giving this reflexive film-based worship of Indy's personal effects to every character in the film. What did you think Katanga did with Indy's effects? Did he send them to a German embassy to be forwarded to a concentration camp (as far as he knew, that's where Indy was). Did he drop his normal business to send the hat back to Sallah, so Sallah could send it by Express Mail back to the States in time to greet Indy so he could have the hat professionally cleaned and spiffed up? (I mean, come on, Indy giving a shit about dry cleaning?) Did Indy insist on hunting down Sallah and asking him to please contact Katanga to get his hat and jacket back BEFORE he tried to convince those Bureaucrats of the importance of the Ark? You are grasping at straws in a very fanboy way that lessens the relative realism of the first movie, that made the first movie as good as it was. It's far simpler to imagine that the tough, practical Jones would just buy a new hat when he needed one, not wasting time writing to Sallah and Katanga for his old one back, or dry cleaning his old one and then immediately taking off into jungles and mountains with it to mess it up again. Either it's a precious hat he likes to keep spiffy, or it's a hat he doesn't mind getting filthy. One or the other. You can't have both in your fanwank theory. And CRYSTAL SKULL has taken the tack that it's a favorite hat that he doesn't bother to spiff up (at least, from the still's we've seen). So that blows your theory out of the water.

    by DocPazuzu

    I'd take you more seriously if you weren't the guy who in the other Indy TB complained about Indy bitching about his age and compared it to your own 60+ dad(!) who doesn't complain about it. <p> The fact is, the things you listed are almost exclusively from TLC, which I personally find to be the weakest film of the bunch. I hate the prologue in its entirety for its tendency to attribute virtually every aspect of Indy's character to the occurrences of one afternoon when he was a boy scout. That having been said, TLC is still vastly better than most films of its type being made today. <p> The "fortune and glory" bit is NOT out of character, however, as TOD takes place before ROTLA when Indy was a bit more mercenary - maybe a stage he went through after his idealistic youth. Then again, maybe Indy wanted Lao Che's diamond so he could finance an even bigger quest? See, NoDiggity's problem is not that he has a problem with excessive explanations. He simply wants explanations when it suits HIM. That's why he can't make a small leap of faith and give Indy the benefit of the doubt like I just did regarding Lao Che's diamond. Indy doesn't explicitly say that he needs the diamond for an expedition, so NoDiggity can't see past the obvious, namely that wealth was traded for something of historical and cultural value. <p> What's "obnoxious" about people like NoDiggity and ringwearer9 is that they pick and choose (and fabricate) subtexts when it allows them to project themselves as being haughty, cynical cineasts. By the same token, when a possible subtext or leeway for interpretation exist and it contradicts their ideas, they conveniently ignore them.

    Things that TBers should never say again: TB 6 Commandments

[Gained popularity during Transformers TB a while ago when describing optimus prime, but is now just way annoying.] <p> 2) "You're a faggot, [insert TBer name here] The reasons behind this are so obvious I won't even try. <p> 3) "You must live in your mom's basement". A tired, unsubstantiated insult. <p> 4) "It's this year's "Little Miss Sunshine" and all its iterations. <p> 5) "[insert name of director here] is a hack." That term has absolutely no meaning anymore. Be specific with your criticism. <p> 6) "Owned" or "pwned".

    i skimmed most of the TB because i'm very busy and important these days...sewing tutus. i will assume that xi won the hat debate redux and that no diggity and allie jamison said something annoying. but one thing did catch my eye and i am going to pontificate about it, because i am a)a know-it-all about certain things and b)while i didn't go to school at the same time as struzan, we went to the same school and took the same illustration classes from the same teachers, meaning we learned the same technique. struzan makes all his posters with photo projection (from photos given to him by the studio) and then they're hand painted. any digital work is done later, in press. therefore, any wanking about this poster should be directed at the studio advertising department, not the artist. and any wanking at the skill of the artist should be shoved up the ass of the wanker, because i'll wager nobody on this TB - including yours truly - could paint anything REMOTELY as well as struzan. if you can, please post a link to your work so that i may be proven wrong. that is all. *steps down from soapbox*

    NoDiggity

    by DocPazuzu

    No, I don't believe they knew how iconic the hat would become, but that still doesn't change the fact that you're drawing conclusions out of your ass. <p> No, I don't think Katanga would drop everything to send his gear anywhere, but he was taking Indy and Marion somewhere to begin with, was he not? Surely once he reached his destination he would tell Sallah about the misfortune which befell his friend. Maybe Indy had already contacted Sallah by then to say he was alright. Maybe Katanga at that point said "Wow, what a relief. Say! I still have his shit here - can I send it to you?" <p> This thing only becomes fanboy wank when someone pushes it as hard as you do your hat obsession. I'm only stating possibilities which demonstrate how flimsy your ideas are. As far as I'm concerned, it's not important whether he only has one hat or thousands of them. <p> It's interesting, however, that you obsess over his hat but ignore the fact that Indy in ROTLA almost got his arm crushed in order to retrieve his bullwhip, an action which according to your theory Indy wouldn't have done until subsequent films as a "wink" to the audience. <p> Also, Indy doesn't just wear the fedora on adventures. Doesn't care about dry-cleaning? Did you see how smartly dressed he was (with hat) at the end of ROTLA? <p> As for the stills from KOCS, they are just that - stills. As far as we know, the stills of him wearing the fedora are during and/or after action scenes, so how does that blow anything I've said out of the water?

    by manicart1

    7)Stupid jokes relating to the Indiana Jones titles and Harrison Ford's age, eg 'Indiana Jones and the Male Menopause'. You know what? We get it-- Indy's not a young'un anymore. Cracking wise about it was funny four years ago when the Indy 4 rumours started circulating. Now that the film is almost here and defying all expectations by looking credible, shut the fuck up about Indy swaping his whip for a cholostomy bag. Or Indy's fear of snakes being related to his impotence...or whatever. 8) Reference to the Star Wars Prequels, and how if you ever saw George Lucas you would smash his head repeatedly against the floor before craming his head up your entire ass and pooing his head out and then jumping on his poo covered head yelling 'TEH SUCK! TEH SUCK! O RAPIST OF MY CHILDHOOD!" In short, to stop banging on about how much you hate three movies that came out years ago.

    I'm somewhat with you on the "unspeakable power" bit. However, one could argue that his aversion to his father's biblical obsessions would have him scoff at Judeo-Christian artifacts of supposedly supernatural power. Let's not forget that Indy was VERY quick to tell Marion to shut her eyes when the shit hit the fan. Perhaps his brush with holy artifacts earlier in life enabled him to quickly accept what was happening and that he had been wrong? <p> A worse offense in TOD is the pulling a gun on a swordsman gag. If you watch the films in chronological order, it makes one of the biggest laughs in ROTLA seem weirdly pointless. Using the gag in TOD is inexcusable and would have been much better in TLC. Still, I rate TOD a hell of a lot higher than TLC.

    Why would you watch Indy movies in chronological order?

    by IAmJack'sUserID

    You watch them in the order they were made, same with the SW trilogies. Also, it could be said that Indy has his pistol to use against the swordsman BECAUSE he didn't have it in Temple, like he was more cautious about not losing it. I just see it as an anachronistic reference though, and the time doesn't bother me at all.

    KotCS: RAIDERS and Amsel Redux?

    by Samuel Vimes

    Indians with spears chasing Indy with whip... Glowy "mystical" object at the center of everyone's attention... Love interest Marion, smiling... Grey-dressed (female and Russian!) villian, threatening with a sword... The whole composition framed by a snake and stone ruins... (And Chia LePet with a funny expression on a motorcyle.) <br> <br> Except for that last, all elements present in the first Indy movie. Lucas and Spielberg must've told Struzan to fire up the Photoshop and include these CRYSTAL SKULL elements for the poster. And this would've been fine as a decent, if typical, Drew Struzan creation--- that is if you haven't seen Richard Amsel's second RAIDERS poster, the one titled "The Return of the Great Adventure". Indy with whip: check. Ark of the Covenant in a central position: check. Love interest Marion, not smiling: check. Villianous Nazis and an Arab threatening with a scimitar: check. The whole composition framed by a snake and stone ruins: check. (And Belloq with a funny expression holding his head.) <br><br> The overlap's a liiitle too pat to be NOT deliberately done! But, I'd like to think that this poster is Struzan's "hommage" to the Amsel original... instead of a blatant retread/rip-off of it. <br> <br> <br> <br> Much like I'm expecting the new CRYSTAL SKULLS to be Lucas and Spielberg's "hommage" to their original RAIDERS of over two decades ago... instead of a blatant retread/rip-off of it.

    Why in the HELL does Lucasfilm mess with Drew Struzan's artwork? The teaser and the release posters for KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL could both be great posters if it wasn't for the ridiculous and unnecessary addition of digital ornamentation around the edges. Why is that digital semi-transparent stone dominating the bottom half of the teaser poster? Why is there black digital foliage surrounding the entire release poster? Lucasfilm, way to ruin some great artwork. Of course that implies that they know great artwork when they see it. <p> At least they got the "INDIANA JONES" font correct on this one. <p> And I would like to concur with many of the talkbackers here, THE PHANTOM MENACE release poster by Drew Struzan is first class.

    RE: The swordsman gag and Indy's hat

    by slone13

    <p>You don't think those were the only 2 times in Indy's many adventures that he shot (or even attempted to shoot) an assailant armed with a sword, do you? Both times the swordsman 'gag' was used, Indy behaved as if this was an old trick he'd used many times before.</p> <p>Also, I'm quite certain that Indy went through many a fedora on his multitude of adventures over the years. It is foolish to think that his Hovito temple raiding hat was supposed to be the very same hat he wore when he was storming Austrian castles looking for his father. It certainly wasn't the hat he wore to work when he was teaching or when he was attending social functions like Donovan's dinner party. Stetson makes durable hats, but not ones that can sustain the abuse Indy puts them through for very long.</p>

    To those that think the poster sucks

    by Han Cholo

    Seriously, Struzan is an artistic genius. Sure he lightbox traces the art onto the board which is why the likenesses are so accurate but the real reason he's the best at what he does is the juxtaposition of the characters and the composition as a whole just comes together. Try drawing and placing a bunch of heads and bodies and blending them all togetherin a picture like he does. It's a hell of a lot harder than it looks and really takes a lot of thought to come to a final composition. Believe me, I've tried it and nothing I've done has come close though there are a few guys like Jason Palmer that can emulate Struzan pretty well. I wish they just wouldn't bite Struzan's style of painting and pencilling, though.

    by NoDiggity

    First of all, your statement "he was taking Indy and Marion somwhere to begin with, was he not... surely once he reached his destination he would tell Sallah about the misfortune which befell his friend.." you mean, he'd just pop on a cell phone and call Sallah, assuming Sallah had reliable phone service in the 1930's? Perhaps he went straight to Mailbox Etc. with Indy's hat and jacket? <br><br> It is YOU are engaginging the fanboy wank, in that your fill-ins, as was explained by Krank, are NOT supported by the film. The film does NOT show Indy packing a dirty hat, along with the clean hat he's wearing, when going to Tibet. The film does NOT show Katanga packing up Indy's hat and jacket, or Indy recieving the package. Based on what the film tells us, he replaces his hat three times during the movie, with NOTHING to tell us differently. We are not led to assume your theory at all. Indy is seen packing his gun, whip, and jacket, but wearing a nice new version of the hat, and NO sign of him packing a hatbox with his dirty hat in it. Mine is not a fanwank, but based on what's given me in the film, the most simple direct connection to be made between new and old hats. Yours requires all this unseen, unshown stuff involving dry cleaners and hat sprucers, which violates Indy's character pretty violently (seriousy, you want to imagine him insisting that his filthy sweat stained hat or hats be lovingly restored every time he comes back from an adventure? It's nuts). What makes yours fanwankery is the elaborateness of your invention. Keep it simple, stupid, and stop depending on all these invented scenes and scenarios to support your case. Mine is based on what I see in the film. I see him wearing a new hat on the plane, and NO sign of him packing a hat, then I reasonably assume the filth hat later is the new hat after taking a beating. Don't need to invent hatboxes, or hat sprucers, or anything. <br><br> And why wouldn't Indy grab for his whip? It's come in pretty handy...it's a life saving tool, as evidenced TWICE before he's shown grabbing for it. That's enough motivation for me. You risk getting crushed (and it wasn't much of a risk, since he could gage the rate of descent) to retrieve a tool that saved his life twice already, and which he could expect to save his life again. Now you are fanwanking so violently that you are ignoring the logic of the first film, and doing it short shrift. <br><br> I already said that the Hat at the end of the adventure was likely a New Hat, not Katanga's specially sent package, via Sallah, because that assumption doesn't need all this fanwanking imagining of Katanga and Sallah's unlikely concern about a filthy hat and jacket. All it imagines is that Indy went to a closet, or a clothes store, and got himself a new hat. The hat is a 1930's style hat, they weren't considered rare and precious objects back then. That's the simple explanation that you don't have to think about, given what the film tells us, as opposed to your fanwankery which forces us to imagine this unlikely scenario of hat and jacket retrieval and restoration that the film does NOT support in any way. <br><br> As for the stills of him wearing the filthy fedora in Crystal Skull, they show a hat and jacket in WORSE condition than any in RAIDERS, which would belie your imagining of Indy as someone who liked to expensively restore one favorite hat over and over.

    by TerryMalloy

    You've defended your position. Indy buys new fedoras. I accept that. And I accept in the sequels that they violate this established character behavior. What I'm saying is that the choice they make in the sequels is more interesting. So I'm not too mad about it. <p> But What I think you're saying is that this is a small example of a larger problem; namely, that in the sequels, there are needless "inside jokes" that essentially break the fourth wall and tarnish the tone that you loved during Raiders. Again, I agree. There is a self-awareness in TOD and TLC that is not present in Raiders. But I think you'll find that this is endemic to movie sequels. In sequels, the filmmakers try to recreate what made the first one so successful. Most often this leads to failure. This is because usually there isn't really much of a story to be told after the character goes through the events of the first movie. In Indiana Jones, plotwise there is very little difference between the three films. [Indy goes after artifact. Meets a woman/sidekick. Nazis chase him.] But that's the intention. What will make this movie interesting is how they will tackle the character growth differently. What is the inner journey that Indy must undergo in this film? There are certainly a lot of issues to explore because of how much time has passed. How effective they are in showing this journey will determine how great the movie actually is. I have no doubt that Speilberg will create thrilling action sequences. But ultimately what will make it successful is that inner journey. So don't get so worked up over the self referencing stuff. It is bound to be in the sequel. And we have seen it already in the trailer. If you go see the movie, take it for what it is. Enjoy the ride!

    by NoDiggity

    If you look at the hi res version of it, it doesn't look like it was altered by photoshopping stuff in. Everything in the picture looks painted in. What seems to have been done is that the full painting was blown up and cropped, and the foliage bordering the picture added in. I can't imagine Struzan drawing a picture that cut off the top of Indy's hat. Why blow it up? For the same reason they wanted Shia the most prominent character, other than Indy's head, as he drives forward out of the picture on his motorcycle. Blowing up the picture blows up Shia. There hopefully new adventure franchise star.

    It's interesting to note that when I was a kid, one of my favorite parts about the sequels was when they referenced the first movie. Maybe I just had bad taste then, I don't know. But I think there is something comforting in having "inside" knowledge. It's the same feeling you get when you and a friend share a joke that no one else gets. It kind of cements the bond a little more. We laugh because it's familiar and we feel a part of Indy's world, unlike the first one, where we are thrown into a completely new and different world and try to keep up.

    As I explained earlier, and as you just admitted, you are concerned with nothing BUT what is being shown on screen. Honestly, your obsessive behavior could just as easily be applied to the lack of footage showing Indy taking a dump. If it wasn't shown, it didn't happen, right? <p> You're accusing me of having a "theory", which I do not. I'm merely pointing out that there is enough leeway in what's NOT being shown that your Hat Theory (TM) is circumstantial at best. Again, I don't care one way or the other if he has one hat or literally owns a fedora factory. <p> Also, you may want to read up on methods of communication back in the 1930s. Telegrams were quite common (and cheap) before cell phones and the internet. <p> Here's a question for you: Do you think Indy stepped off the amphibious plane and walked ten feet to Marion's tavern? Or was it in fact so that Marion's tavern was located on a windswept, frigid, mountain slope which required a few days rugged hiking to get to? Could it possibly be that his hat got dirty on the trip up the mountain? Heavens, no! It can't be! It wasn't SHOWN!! <p> As for the whip, Indy had already made it out into the outer hallway of the temple and had a short walk/run to the river where Jock's plane was waiting. Therefore, by your reckoning, there was no further need for the whip on that particular outing and certainly no reason to get one's arm crushed trying to retrieve it. <p> By the way, where, exactly, in TOD and TLC do we see Indy risking his life to get his hat back? I've never understood this part of your cretinous theory. <p> When it comes to Crystal Skull, why can't you concede that maybe his gear went through massive wear and tear in the film before the stills were taken? And if not, since Indy still had his hat and jacket at the end of TLC, couldn't these be the very same jacket and hat he had when they rode off into the sunset 20 years earlier? <p> Love, <p> Doc

    by Laserbrain

    - I'm pretty sure Indy has different coloured hats in Raiders; Jones Standard Issue Brown as well as the Grey dress hat he wears aboard the seaplane and at the very end of the movie in Washington. Anybody want to check this or does that nerdtacular duty fall to me?

    I'm sure Indy bought more than a couple of the same fedoras over the years. Yes, that mercenary guy at the beginning of Crusade gives him one, but it's unlikely that that hat is the "one" for his entire career. They DO manufacture the fuckin' things. You can buy more.

    saw 2 movies over the weekend 30 Days of Night and The Lookout<p> 30DON-thought it had some cool stuff in it, started off awesome, until the middle section. They really dropped the ball in showing the time pass, because this movie could have been really good. Also too much shaky cam shit which is fucking hard enough to follow without everything being black and white and greenish. But it did have a fantastic decapitation with an axe. One of the best I've seen in a while.<p> The Lookout-thought it was great. Joseph Gorden Levitte was excellent in the movie and the whole picture kept me wondering what was going to happen at the end. Just lots of great character work in it

    DocPazuzu

    by NoDiggity

    I'm not concerned with nothing BUT what it shown on screen, but when the film doesn't bother to show me, I expect it's because it is saying the explanation is obvious, not elaborate, or out of character. Thus, when I see a filthy hat on Indy after a long journey up a mountain, after seeing him wearing a new hat at the very beginning of that journey (on the plane to the mountain) the explanation that it's the same hat, dirtied to show the journey, is the simple one, and the one the film bothered to offer as the explanation, by not bothering to offer anything more complicated, like a hatbox for the filthy hat, which he packed along with his suitcase with the jacket, gun, and whip. <br><br> And no, my "theory" is not "circumstantial" it's simple and obvious. When we see Indy, all filthy after climbing the mountain, are we to assume that he landed one mile away from Marion's tavern, and deliberately FAKED his filthy appearance, including applying a fake growth of beard? We don't go to that explanation (even though, since we haven't seen him make the journey that gave him that beard) because it's not obvious, it's not simple, there's no reason the film offers us that he did that. But you claim that's just as valid an interpretation as the one where he grew his stubble while making a long journey up the mountain? If so, I can't help you. That he fakes his filthy and travel-stained appearance is a more complicated, and unnecessary, explanation, just as the Adventurere's hat in a hatbox, that he lovingly has restored upon return to America, is a more complicated and unnecessary explanation. Which makes it a WORSE explanation. You see? Also, we can also assume that Aliens teleport new and old hats on and off Indy's head. Just as good an explanation, no? Well, if you can't see why it's NOT a good explanation, or not AS good an explanation as a simpler one, I can't help you. <br><br> I do not believe in your expertise regarding the cheapness and world-wide penetration of telegraph communication in the 1930's, especially in Cairo. I believe that a beat up hat and jacket would have been ignored as unimportant, barring in-film instructions by Indy to Katanga to please send them on. Which would have sucked, being that he was all concerned about Marion at the time <br><br> What, you can't imagine the whip coming in handy? Maybe to switch a poison blowgun out of the hands of a hostile Hovito about to shoot him? Or maybe you imagine that Indy has seen the movie already, and knows he won't need the whip after a certain point? TEMPLE OF DOOM riffed off of Indy's saving his whip, by having him and Short Round grabbing and saving their hats, but in Raiders Indy had a genuine reason to want to save his whip .. it was useful. The hat saving thing was just a joke based on the saving of the bullwhip. <br><br> Didn't Indy and Short round reach under a descending door, just as Indy did in Raiders, to retrieve their hats? <br><br> I haven't seen any evidence of "massive wear and tear" on Indy's hat in CRYSTAL SKULL, and evidence fromt the stills suggest otherwise, since Shia LeBoeuf is seen in the same scene as Indy, his jacket and hair unmussed. Assuming they've been together, they would have gone through similar wear and tear to their clothes.

    Laserbrain and the Multiple Raiders Hats

    by finky089

    I thin kyou're right, Lb. This same thought occurred to me yesterday during DIggity's diatribe and I shoulda checked it at home last night except I was doing work til 4 in the morning. <p> I DO think Indy wears a different color hat at the end of the movie (if memory serves, he WOULD because he's wearing a grey suit, right? Men wouldn't wear a brown hat with a grey suit.) I think the hat on the amphibious plane is also a different color. Darker, I want to say. <p> but the simply fact is that the man likely had different fedoras, as men in that time did who wore them. And there's really no reason to believe that the one he got in the prologue of LC was the exact same one he had years later. It's an allusion to how he would "suit up" as an adult, not meant to be literal (at least that's how I interpret it.) <p> Did Indy have a certain one he liked to take with him on his adventures? Probably, it's not odd a guy should have a "favorite" hat. And if so, that he might be a bit attached to that specific hat, but just liek hats today, it could be replaced if lost. <p> When I was 11 I had a Cleveland Indians cap I wore til the brim started coming off. Sure, I had other hats I occassionally wore, too, but no matter what I wouldn't buy a new hat. Then, one day it fell apart. And I bought a new one that I wore for years. All the while, I still wore my other hats, but the Tribe was my favorite one, whatever incarnation it was.

    we actually have it pretty good (business casual, erring towards more "casual"), I'm just tired of pointless rules today because I got no sleep last night. My first job was a "shirt & tie" job for almost a year and I never want to go back to that culture again.

    by BringingSexyBack

    Thanks for the Bob Orci alert. I just holla'd at him. I once had a girl from Jehovah's Witness knock on my parents door. She was smokin hot. That's what they do - send the hot chicks out. But my aversion to being swindled overrides my libido.

    1) Actually, telegrams were quite common in Cairo in the 1930s. Even if they weren't, you don't think a captain of a ship would have access to a fucking telegraph? <p> 2) Okay, so Indy can calculate the rate of descent of the wall in ROTLA so he's not risking his health by grabbing the whip, yet in TOD he's risking his life to get his hat back? Was the descent of the door in TOD much more difficult to calculate, making Indy's risk greater? <p> 3) Again: if Indy's hat and jacket are beat up in KOCS, why couldn't they be the same hat and jacket from the end of TLC? <p> 4) What exactly is the point of your Hat Theory (TM)? <p> 5) You're completely mad.

    by TerryMalloy

    The point of the hat theory was what I described above. It's really a moot issue whether Indy has new hats/old hats/dirty hats/. The issue is that in the sequels there is a lot of self-referencing "inside" jokes to the audience that break the fourth wall, take us out of the movie, and ruin (or at the least modify) the tone set by Raiders. That's all. He's just bringing up the hats as a smaller issue of a larger problem.

    by DocPazuzu

    I know all that, but it amuses me that the hat thing galls NoDiggity so much that he spends hours obsessing over it. <p> He's actually modified some of his Indy 4 critique. When he first started out he hinted that using the Soviets as villains was more or less in order to condition the audiences to view the Russians as bad guys in real life once more. <p> NoDiggity's problem is that he would now never admit if he liked Indy 4. All his critique is based on factors which have virtually nothing to do with any qualities of the movie itself. He's painted himself into a corner with his zealous fixation on all things "retreaded" and can therefore never admit to liking it. Witness, for example, his adamant opinions regarding what's depicted in the stills. He is drawing iron-clad conclusions regardless of whether the film will bear them out or not. <p> It's hilarious and quite sad as well.

  • March 11, 2008, 4:59 p.m. CST

    Well, technically

    by TerryMalloy

    We have all now spent hours obsessing over the hat. :) He tricked us all. <p> And as far as NoDiggity's critique being "based on factors which have virtually nothing to do with any qualities of the movie itself," that kind of goes with the territory. None of us have seen the movie yet so we analyze what has been given to us. Some do this a little more obsessively than others.

  • March 11, 2008, 5:02 p.m. CST

    Correct, Terry...

    by DocPazuzu

    ...with the difference that most people drawing conclusions allow for the possibility that they are wrong and allow room for interpretation of the images we've seen. People like NoDiggity and ringwearer9, on the other hand, do not.

    "1) Actually, telegrams were quite common in Cairo in the 1930s. Even if they weren't, you don't think a captain of a ship would have access to a fucking telegraph?" Telegraphs weren't free, or cheap. And they took a lot of trouble. It wasn't like using a cell phone. All over a ripped up jacket and filthy hat? Give me a break. Do you think the jacket was worth saving after Indy was done being dragged along a road with it? And the Hat was worth nothing. Could be easily replaced by Indy probably for the same cost of shipping the fucking thing to America, on top of the telegraph fees asking him if he wanted the filthy thing(s). "2) Okay, so Indy can calculate the rate of descent of the wall in ROTLA so he's not risking his health by grabbing the whip, yet in TOD he's risking his life to get his hat back? Was the descent of the door in TOD much more difficult to calculate, making Indy's risk greater?" You are babbling now. In RAIDERS he risked his health to retrieve a proven life-saving tool. In TOD, yes, he risks his health for a stupid HAT. Did you notice that that has been my point all along, and you just agreed with it? Are you now pretending that my point was YOUR point? Wow, that's pathetic. PWND. 3) Again: if Indy's hat and jacket are beat up in KOCS, why couldn't they be the same hat and jacket from the end of TLC? Fine, they could be, but not if your fanwank theory that Indy likes to lovingly restore his dirty hats to new-like condition is in effect, because, if so, why didn't he restore them this time? It's your fanwank theory, not mine. Why should I have to defend it? You defend it. "4) What exactly is the point of your Hat Theory (TM)?" "5) You're completely mad." Reduced to babbling insults.

    by 'Cholera's Ghost

    You're reaching when you say "if" Indy's hat is beat up in this movie, it would probably be the same hat he had at the end of TLC. But if it's his old hat, it could have been beat up during the course of adventuring in the intervening years, and if it's a different hat it could have been beat up over the course of intervening years. He only spruces it up when social convention calls for him to look respectable in front of Top Men and other government officials. And it's always been my understanding that a good degree of sentimental value was attached to it from the beginning of TLC, making Indy only a little less the practical man he is to do what he can to hang on to it.

    For the third time: I don't have a "theory". I'm merely pointing out how feeble yours is. <p> When I say that I don't care whether Indy has one hat or millions of them, what is it you don't understand? I've said it enough times so it can't be that you didn't see it. <p> What this all boils down to is that it enrages you that the hat has become so iconic that the filmmakers don't mind a wink or two, whereas it doesn't bother me one bit. <p> You know, NoDiggity, if you weren't such a shrill, absolutist maniac I would actually enjoy debating hats and other gear with you. As it is, you've already made up your mind about this film based on the anally retentive analysis of minutiae and ludicrous "retreading", which simply makes you an obnoxious, humorless turd rather than someone with something interesting or worthwhile to say about the film. <p> You are a prime example of the cynical, empty and corrupt nerdism which the internet has made possible to flourish.

    The CHUD guy who called Drew

    by Rocklover79

    Man, if you haven't been over to CHUD forums lately, you outta go. The guy who made the call to Drew's house is getting ROASTED like nuts over there. I honestly don't get what all the fuss is for. Dude had his home phone number listed on his website. Not like the guy wiretapped his phone to gain secret access or something. You put your info online, you're fair game, but calling the dude at 4am and waking his wife just to ask about a poster...don't think I'd do that, but that's just me. The poster looks okay to me. I didn't jump out of my chair, but I didn't hurl all over my keyboard, either. The film concerns me more than a poster at the moment.

Cutting and Pasting someone else's abuse is really a low ebb. Even for you. <P>Kloipy- try the special blend made by grinding their pets into powder and then boiling it up.

    Glovedone = Closet Case

    by Le Vicious Fishus

    Anyone this obsessed with gay male erotica is obviously dealing with their own repressed homoerotic desires. Not that there's anything wrong with it, but please don't repress those desires, Glovedone. For god's sake, come out of the closet. Closet cases are notorious pricks (as we have learned time and again in TB). You'll be a much nicer person once you're ok with giving it or taking it like you secretly want to give it or take it (or are ALREADY giving it or taking it in secret).<BR><BR>And before you shoot off a knee-jerk retort accusing *me* of being gay, I just want you to know that I--unlike you--could give a shit less what you think about my sexual orientation. See, that's what separates homophobes from the rest of us straight (or--for that matter--out of the closet gay) guys: we don't give a shit about what other people do with their specials. We're not *obsessed* like you are. We're not angry about it. We're not angry with ourselves for thoughts or actions we feel are dirty. <BR><BR>Now Glovedone, if you're below the age of 17, you may have a good excuse for being sexually insecure enough to be throwing these kind of transparent "gay" insults around. That's pretty normal. But if you are really an adult--get some help.

    by Mr. Nice Gaius

    Actually, that Patterson/Gimlin film of a Bigfoot (or "Patty" as they call her) has never been debunked. The very visible muscle movement under the skin has baffled experts for years. It's not consistent with anything other than actual flesh, bone, and muscle tissue. And no, that ain't no zipper!

    Xiphos

    by Mr. Nice Gaius

    No, the guy you're thinking of (I forget his name - I believe he's dead) confessed to being the first foot print guy.<P>The Patterson/Gimlin film has never been debunked. Patterson has been dead for many years. However, Gimlin is still alive and adamantly defends the story behind the film. Although he has conceded the possibility that he may have been duped by Patterson (a VERY risky notion considering Gimlin was the one with the rifle when the creature was spotted), his character and eyewitness account are held in high regard by both "experts" and skeptics.<P>As for the zipper, I'm not sure what you're referring to...I've seen the hi-def/stabilized version of the film and I don't recall anything being flagged as a zipper.<P>FYI - I had a major interest in that film when I was a kid. There have been times when I've watched it and thought it was a man-in-suit and there have been other times when it has given me the creeps. There are things in the film (and details in the account of the event) that are really quite remarkable.

    I saw a special on History a few weeks ago, they studied the film and showed the full film a few times. And it really doesn't look human at all. and a human supposedly in unable to walk the same way as the creature in the film. Also they set up film for a few weeks and tried to bait something in. And as they were sitting out one night something started throwing rocks into their camp. So they set up these traps with wood and nails sticking out. Something stepped on one of them and they took blood samples and the dna showed some sort of primate match but also DNA that didn't match anything human or animal. Pretty cool stuff

    re:Seven Gates to Hell

    by Kloipy

    Supposedly, back in the early 1900's there was an old asylum set back in the woods in Hellam, York PA. There were gates leading up to the asylum, specifically 7 gates. Well the story goes that the place burnt down and those that didn't die in the fire ran out into the woods and were never seen again. Now, if you go up there (which I did, only made it to the third gate) you can walk into the woods and see what is left of the gates. They say that no one can make it to the last gate and if you do you supposedly enter hell or go crazy. Many people who have gone have reported hearing weird sounds and people whispering. Even the Weird US guys wouldnt go into it. When I went I just got a really bad vibe and turned back, but that's probably just from the stories I had heard.

    by Mr. Nice Gaius

    The lumbering gait has been "duplicated" before and it's always been through some elaborate or rather unnatural manner. Yet none of these duplications have been able to account from the ease of movement, the larger/longer than normal arms, the fingers that MOVE, the huge trapezius muscle, or (most importantly) the massive thigh muscle that can be seen flexing in mid-stride when "Patty's" right leg hits a lower point of elevation.<P>Xiphos - Ha! It's too bad that you never came across a sasquatch during one of your expeditions. It's kind of unfortunate to think that only a dead one will prove, once and for all, whether those sons of bitches really exist.

I became the go-to guy and would often close the shop. He'd reward me by buying a six pack of Michelob for me on weekends. I was 16 at the time. Plus, I started dating his hot sister, who also worked there. Anyway, I got fired because one night after closing, at about 3am, I was playing guitar in the back room through an amp. I hadn't locked the front door yet, and the OTHER owner, Arab guy, decided to come for a visit. I guess he didn't enjoy my hot shreddin' licks. He was a coward and wouldn't fire me on the spot, he had the "cool" cop manager do it, and that guy reluctantly did so.

    I worked for a restaurant as a server for a long time. I hated it and all my managers were assholes. One day everyone(servers) called off so I had to work on a Sat. afternoon by myself. I was so stressed and so busy and my one manager just sat in the back smoking the whole day. Then she yelled at me and told me I needed to clean up the tables. I was like<p> "I'm really busy can't you do it?"<p> "No, I'm a manager, that's not my job." she said<p> so I ran and grabbed the big tub to put the dishes in, I mean I stocked this tub full of them because I didn't have time. On top of the other dishes was one single cup. With water and ice. I kept staring at it thinking 'please don't fall, please don't fall"<p> Of course it fell. all over me down my shirt and pants. I walked calmly into the back and then dumped all the plates, cups, and bowls onto the floor, shattering them. Then I ripped off my shirt went up front in front of the customers, threw my shirt at my boss who was talking on the phone, yelled "Fuck this place, I quit" and walked right the hell out of there.

    by Kloipy

    how he starts slamming it on the ground and punching it in the face

  • March 13, 2008, 9:28 a.m. CST

    I just got done explaining

    by Abominable Snowcone

    to a couple office workers that it's alright if Harrison Ford wears an earing at 65, because he's Harrison Ford, dammnit, and he can do anything and still be awesome. He could kick a baby for a field goal and still be awesome

  • March 13, 2008, 9:34 a.m. CST

    You guys see the Hulk trailer yet?

    by Abominable Snowcone

    the CGI looks no different to me than the Ang Lee version. The first time you see a full-blown shot of Hulk, he does this little muscle flex move, and it looks completely not real. I can't make up my mind if I like the way Abomination looks, or if I think he looks like a puke-limegreen turd with a bumpy vertabrae

  • March 13, 2008, 9:45 a.m. CST

    I saw it last night Abom

    by Kloipy

    I didn't like it either. I was never a huge Hulk fan to begin with though

  • March 13, 2008, 9:56 a.m. CST

    The Hulk face-off

    by Abominable Snowcone

    reminds me a lot of the Optimus vs Megatron showdown, where you get two main characters at opposite ends of a street, they face off, then they rush at each other for that full-blown first punch, a la Rocky and Apollo's freeze frame at the end of Rocky III. It's just been done too often, I guess. Oh who am I kidding? Michael Gross and Bruce Campbell aren't in the movie, nor is Fred Ward or Kurt Russell. It can only be so good

  • March 13, 2008, 9:59 a.m. CST

    Neo and Smith did it too

    by Abominable Snowcone

    Shit, I'm sure you could think of a 100 examples. I was really underwhelmed by the cgi. It's not a good thing when Toy Story wows you, or Monsters Inc, but a superhero movie's computer work sucks enough to take you out of the film. Okay I'm done bitching, since Hulk is only worth so much of my time, unlike other characters. Like Ash

  • March 13, 2008, 10:01 a.m. CST

    I can almost 100% say

    by Kloipy

    that after this new Hulk comes out, and disappoints people, they will come back on here and say how much they loved Ang Lee's version when 2 months before they said how bad it sucked

  • March 13, 2008, 10:03 a.m. CST

    Have you seen the new Wall*E trailer?

    by Kloipy

    that shit is insane. It looks just amazing

  • March 13, 2008, 10:10 a.m. CST

    Haven't seen it yet

    by Abominable Snowcone

    but Pixar automatically gets my money for that, because I've loved everything they've done except Cars. And also, I've only seen parts of Ratatouille, so I can't say that one amazed me, either. Pixar could make an email list where they email fans and say "We're making a new movie," and I would just automatically cut them a check

  • March 13, 2008, 10:12 a.m. CST

    I hear that man

    by Kloipy

    Pixar movies are the best things kids have for film these days

  • March 13, 2008, 10:12 a.m. CST

    I don't think Lee's Hulk

    by Abominable Snowcone

    was the piece of shit some people make it out to be, but it was hardly great storytelling, either. It was a bit disjointed, and the "dad" angle was a bit much. And the poodle. Special effects wise, I could live with it. I guess I'm a bit suprised that the new hulk is not at all a marked improvement, FX wise. I guess there's still something to be said for stop motion and men in rubber suits. Or Lou Ferrigno in body paint.

  • March 13, 2008, 10:16 a.m. CST

    while I didn't love Lee's version

    by Kloipy

    I thought it had some really good stuff in it, and actually tried to take a more serious approach to the whole comic book thing. But most people it seems want a dancing spiderman and a retarded Fantasic Four movie over something that tries to bring a little elegance and depth to the comics that they hold dear.<p> although the giant poodle was fucking retarded

  • March 13, 2008, 10:24 a.m. CST

    I will admit

    by Abominable Snowcone

    that when my kids ask to watch Hulk, which is only a fraction of the times they request a Spidey or Indy movie, I'm tempted to skip it to the part where he breaks out of the underground tank / bunker and starts f*cking sh&t up. I really did like the sequence where he's hauling ass through a canyon, swatting helicopter missiles. I guess it just reminds me of 2true

  • March 13, 2008, 10:40 a.m. CST

    I did not like Lee's version

    by just pillow talk

    The whole serious approach is not what the problem was, it was the harping on daddy issues. I fucking get it. And it can be serious as much as it wants, but you need more smashing and destruction. Simple as that. Was it better than FF movies and Spidey 3? Sure. But it's still not in the upper echelon of comic movies (first two x-men, first two spidey, batman begins).<p>And this version doesn't look any better, and I definitely don't like the way the Abomination looks.

  • March 13, 2008, 10:44 a.m. CST

    That Wall E trailer is genius

    by Abominable Snowcone

    I liked everything about it, the look, the angles. The robot characters that don't speak english yet emote more than a lot of wooden actors in a lot of big budget movies. Those pixar people must be practicing warciples or something

  • March 13, 2008, 11:15 a.m. CST

    agreed Pillow

    by Kloipy

    I hear you man. I just liked the fact that Lee wanted to do something completely different with a superhero movie than anyone else.

  • March 13, 2008, 11:20 a.m. CST

    Abom

    by Kloipy

    I know right? I love the part with the shopping carts at the end

  • March 13, 2008, 11:24 a.m. CST

    I had no problem with him trying something different

    by just pillow talk

    but it wasn't a success. <p>I personally think it's one of the worst characters to do a movie on. You just can't relate to him, unlike, say Spidey, whose life is always shit even with superpowers, who would never give up.<p>If you've got someone like the hulk or superman, you've got to have them to something super crazy. Drop the Hulk off in space battling the Kree or Skrulls, or have him battle the U-Foes. None of this military bullshit anymore.

  • March 13, 2008, 11:27 a.m. CST

    Hulk?

    by Lost Jarv

    what is this revisionism? <P>It was a valiant attempt to try something different that became a wholly boring psuedo intellectual tripefest. And despite aiming for intelligence it still managed to include more retarded moments than both Spiderman and Spiderman2. <P>It was crap.

  • March 13, 2008, 11:28 a.m. CST

    Why do you call yourself Snowcone?
