Snipe.

Why would they use two separate shots of almost the exact same thing?

It's definitely the same shot. The MPAA does not allow guns being pointed directly at people for their "approved for general audiences" trailers, so everything's digitally altered. The movie itself is ok--things were altered for the trailer only. Or so I hear.

Then why is there an entire Nazi missing in the top one?

    • They're Commies, not Nazis. Indy already pwn'd them.
    • He went to a gulag.

    Those are totally Americans.  I see an M1 Carbine and a Thompson submachine gun.

    EDIT - peep this:

    M1's rear sight and part of the receiver clearly visible.  Soldier standing in front of the boxes clearly holding a Thompson (1928A1, I think).  "USAF" printed on wall in background.


    Soldiers on left carrying Thompsons.  "US Air Force" printed on large building in background.  Car markings partially obscured, but similar to earlier shot reading "U.S. Army, 1B7731, For official use only"

    Found this in the German version:

    Totally a Carbine.

    I hope it turns out to be decent...  My hopes aren't very high though... I don't like Shia Lebouff or whatever he is.

    They may look like American soldiers, carry American weapons but they still could be commie infiltrators.  big grin

    I'm wondering if it's going to dispense with the usual supernatural element and replace it with sci-fi.  Roswell looks to fit in unless it's a red herring.  A red alien herring!

    The movie premiered at Cannes earlier today. I figured it would be safe to read some of the major-publication reviews, but was sadly mistaken. The Variety review spoiled way too much for me just in the opening few paragraphs. I had to stop reading.

    Still, so far so good.

    Great, Jeff.  Now I'm not going to read anything until I see the movie just to keep from unintentionally seeing spoilers.  Though I am pretty sure the good guys will win.

    Also, does anyone know if the Lego Indiana Jones game for the Wii uses motion-sensing for controlling Indy's whip?  That may give me the motivation I need to get a Wii.  Whipping the shit out of people and things has always been a fantasy of mine.  Also, it's possibly the best out-of-context statement ever.

    I get another healthy kickback from the new Indy movie, because the character is based on me.

    That's right, the BDSM element was largely removed from the film version.

    If you don't break your TV playing Wii Sports then I guess Wii Whip will do it.

    Okay, just got back from seeing Crystal Skulls.  Let me just say I was right about the content of the film, and Gocad may be very right about my comments on the trailer.  As for the movie itself: if you're reading this thread, go see it.  Otherwise, it's really a bit of a letdown.  See the movie review thread for more details.

    Definitely. Should have ended on top of the mountain (well, it should have ended about half an hour before that...).

    Thumbs Up:
    Thumps Down:
    • Shia LaBoeuf
    • Henry Jones III
    • Killing off Henry Jones, Sr.
    • The Lost Ark of the Covenant only making a brief appearance
    • The plot starting right off the back
    • Revealing the Mac double agent and Shia LaJones twists way too early
    • Indiana basically losing
    • The wedding ending
    • The "passing of the torch" moment[/spoiler]

      About Marion:

    Overall, this was a great movie. It was funny with the "fish out of water" moments of Indy in the late 50's. Some of the things hurt the movie, in my opinion, and it could've been better. However, I think I might be looking at the negatives too much. As said before, IT'S INDIANA FRAKIN' JONES! The good things were great. There were plenty of little jokes throughout the movie that harken back to the old movies, and even Star Wars. I want to see it again. 4 more times tops. I'll give it an A-, putting it in the running for Best of '08 with Cloverfield.

    The only thing I want to know is, is this a movie to pay to see in the theater or wait until it comes out on cable/dvd?

    I'd say go see it in the theater just in case we never get a chance to see another Indy movie on the big screen.

    Re: Ark of the Callback.


    And now that I've had some time to reflect, another thing comes to mind.

    I don't think they needed to come across it at all. I mean, anyone who knows anything about Indy will know the second they see a big warehouse with lots of crates that the Ark is in there, without having the camera linger on it for two seconds. It's like Spielberg is saying "Look how clever we are. We remembered that the Ark was put in a warehouse. Did you remember? I don't think you did, so I'll show you now."

    Right.  Like I said, I didn't think it should have even been brought up, and like you said, the way it was shown was either forcing their "cleverness" down our throats or strictly pandering to the "I get jokes!"-crowd.

    That being said, I now sort of wish that whole section of the movie took place somewhere else, but then you wouldn't have that outrageous escape sequence.  I think the film would've been better for not having it either, but now I'm just playing armchair filmmaker.
