    Naw it was Raiders lite. Temple was better than this since it took more risks and didn't just do muh Nazis plot again

      Nazis do make good villains in this context because they had a genuine interest in the occult. Julius Evola was attached to an SS team who searched for mystical objects. Next level LARPers.

    the tank scene is the peak of action cinematography

      Wouldn't such a tank have had a machine gun turret that could have easily zapped Indy? I get why they deprived it of that though.

        It was an old WWI era tank that would have been obsolete tech even in the era that movie was set in. There was a lot of trial and error before tank design got figured out

      Came here just to say this. That scene is a mini-course in filmmaking in itself.

    TLC is the worst Indiana Jones movie and that includes Dial
    - Dull, low-stakes macguffin
    - Plot makes no sense, Hitler wants to procure the grail but not actually use it, and is willing to lend the boring bad guy (who will use it) military force to that end
    - Indy's entire persona and iconography is established during a single afternoon in his teens
    - Sallah and Brody are demoted to comic relief morons
    - It's basically just Raiders again but nowhere near as good
    The Hitler scene was admittedly really good though

      Nice double trips
      TLC is only watchable because of the father/son dynamic and cool scenes like the traps, the blimp, and the Hitler scene
      Doom is a great weird movie that turned up the spice level on the grotesque, it feels sort of like an homage to pulp
      Raiders is objectively an almost perfect movie from start to finish and I sometimes wish it and Jurassic Park had never received sequels, even though said sequels are pretty enjoyable

    I love it. The beginning where they find the Templar tunnel under a random church in Italy is like proto-Da Vinci Code. It just makes me really excited like a kid to think any old building could have ADVENTURE hiding inside it. That and the intro sequence, and the tank battle, and the Hitler sequence, and the airship..... yeah this is a FRICKING COOL MOVIE

      This except i never saw anything after Crusade and never will. Anyone who disputes these rankings didnt watch these as a kid so their opinion doesn't matter because the first 3 were pulp adventure movies made for boys.

    IMHO the entire trilogy is 10/10 You could put it in any order and I'll understand the point raiders is my favorite though
    Skull is 7/10 has some good moments like the nuke and the car chase would have been an acceptable ending to the series
    Didn't watched dial yet

      Ignore the mind-raped culture warriors. Dial is undeniably the weakest film in the series, but it's worth a watch.

    TLC is more emotionally satisfying than Raiders. As someone with daddy issues, I cry like a b***h at the “Indiana…let it go” line.

    Last Crusade used dto be my favorite as a kid, rewatched the trilogy and realized it's actually the weakest, they overcorrected so hard from Doom being critiqued for being violent and scary that it just feels like a kids film, it only towards the end when the stakes get a bit higher and the drama kicks in that it feels more like an Indy film again. I straight up don't think Sean Connery is a good character, he's just like this cartoonish comic relief that's just a bumbling fool for most of the movie.

    Cinemaphile posters are a bunch of homosexuals. Also, I like this one a lot, it has a better pacing than Riders but it feels too much like a Disney movie. And I don't like how they used Marcus, they shoud've let him do some badass stuff like he seem able to in the first film.

    Heh, I too love Temple of Doom because I am fricking superior and it’s not a garbage movie.

      Not a lot to discuss about the OG trilogy... it's concentrated kino. Check out Soderbergh's black and white grading of Raiders:
