In the scene at Marshall College, pictures of the Sankara Stones from Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984) can be seen on a blackboard, along with some of the names of characters associated with the stones. See more »
When the gold coins are "magnetically" attracted to Orellenas body from Indys hand, they first land on Orellenas metal armor suit and then gravitate" over the suit to the skull. The skulls "magnetic" properties apparently does not affect the metal suit so the coins do not magnetically bond to it. Then, when Indy moves the suit and uncovers the skull, the coins are not there, nor are they drawn to it when Indy holds the skull up. See more »
The movie begins with the Lucasfilm logo, followed by the 1954 Paramount "VistaVision" logo (with the text "PARAMOUNT" instead of "A PARAMOUNT PICTURE" and "A Viacom Company" instead of "A Gulf+Western Company" below "PARAMOUNT"). Gulf+Western became Paramount Communications in 1989, then merged with Viacom in 1994. The Paramount logo then dissolves into a gopher mound. (The static version of the current Paramount logo is seen at the end of the movie.) See more »
Why all the hate? Is it because we've grown up? This is still a fun movie!
Reading all the comments here, it looks like this is one of the worst films ever made, and it's absolute rubbish, Shia's character is Jar Jar Binks, etc.
But it's earning a ton of money, and the rankings (7.6) are high, so what does that tell you? That compared to the haters, MOST people came to his movie expecting a fun adventure movie and got it.
Look, the Indiana Jones movies aren't flawless. Even in the previous movies, you had to suspend belief (people melting? someone surviving a fall from a plane just on a craft? a Knight living more than 1,000 years?) and just enjoy the action scenes - and you have them here! Mutt swinging on the vines is real corny but the car chase through the jungle, complete with sword fight, fisticuffs, giant ants, etc. - they are what you can expect from an Indiana Jones movie. And Cate Blanchett is a SUPER villain, Harrison somehow makes it all believable for him to still be an action star at 60 plus, and it's great to see Marion Ravenwood again.
STAR WARS I was a major major disappointment, but this one is NOT. We have wanted to see Harrison Ford suit up as Indy again, and here he has a good cast with him, and yet we bash the movie because it isn't RAIDERS? Nothing can be as much fun as the first Indy Jones movie. But this one is still MUCH MUCH better than any adventure movie out there for the past several years.
Just watch it with an open mind. Don't expect miracles, but fun entertainment for 2 hours and you will get it.
