Hot Toys' Temple Of Doom Indiana Jones Doesn't Come With A Single Snake

The tiny sixth-scale fedora alone makes Hot Toys’ Indiana Jones figure a worthy addition to any collection. But as with all the plastic doppelgangers the company sells, everything from the convincing Harrison Ford sculpt, to his tired and torn outfit, to Indy’s other iconic accessory, his whip, make this $US230 figure worth every cent.


Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade Summed Up In A Ridiculous 60 Seconds

I always enjoy these stupid simple and zany animation summaries of movies by 1A4STUDIO that take film classics and squeeze all the important scenes in goofy squealing glee. Here’s the newest: Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. It’s like one awesome chase scene.


Steven Soderbergh Made Raiders Of The Lost Ark Into A Silent Film

It’s hard to say what my favourite thing about Steven Soderbergh’s new remix of Raiders of Ark is. Is it the total lack of dialogue? Or maybe it’s the vivid black-and-white rendering that makes you forget the film is supposed to be in colour. Actually, honestly, it’s the sick 8-bit soundtrack. That’s it.


Rock Out To Indiana Jones This Morning

John Williams is a musical magician, with some of the most recognisable scores in the history of film sitting comfortably under his belt. Understandably, Williams’ work has been covered and re-covered by the denizens of YouTube, including this one-man-bad effort by a fellow called “The Human Tim” (real name unforthcoming). It’s the theme to Indiana Jones done in a slightly less classical fashion.


Decorate Your Temple Of Doom With A Monkey Head Bowl Full Of Fake Brains

Until Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull came along, The Temple of Doom was considered the least enjoyable of the Indiana Jones films — due in no small part to the dinner scene involving baby snakes, and chilled monkey brains served in their own skulls. A meal you can finally serve at home, or at least a close facsimile thereof, using these faux monkey head bowls.


From Star Wars To Indiana Jones, The Surprising Acting Career Of Game Of Thrones' Maester Pycelle

After a long and celebrated career, British actor Julian Glover probably feels like he’s due for a win. Currently, as Grand Maester Pycelle on Game of Thrones, he’s ahead of the game — well, he’s alive. Which is more than you can say for his other famous roles on the big screen, which seem to have a running theme of Man Who Tried Too Hard Before Coming To A Sticky End.


How Spielberg, Lucas, And Kasdan Came Up With Indiana Jones

How did a “scruffy”, “rough and tumble”, “bounty hunter of antiquities” become one of the most beloved heroes in film history? Read this transcript from a 1978 meeting featuring Steven Spielberg, George Lucas and Lawrence Kasdan, as they workshop the concept of Raiders of the Lost Ark.


I Don't Recall Indiana Jones IV Being So Damn Terrible (but It Is)

I think we can all agree that Indiana Jones and The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull is the very worst of the Indy movies, but I don’t recall it being as bad as this Everything wrong with… episode shows.


Watch Darth Vader Get His Arse Kicked In Stop Motion By Indiana Jones And Einstein

Anyone who’s seen an episode of Robot Chicken can appreciate the bizarre comedy that can be mined from toys and models filmed in stop-motion. It gives you the freedom to set-up some odd scenarios, say, Darth Vader getting destroyed by the likes of Indiana Jones, Jack Torrance and, er, Albert Einstein.


Scientists Discover Iron Man Found By Nazis Is Of Extraterrestrial Origin

Before you ask: no, it isn’t the plot for the next Indiana Jones movie. According to a research paper published on the journal Meteoritics & Planetary Science, scientists have discovered that an Iron Man sculpture found by a Nazi expedition in Tibet is of extraterrestrial origin. Cue the music anyway.
