I trained as a makeup artist and along with colour swatches for every product in my bag, I had another set for everything but in greyscale. You never know when you’ll need it.
As another 80’s baby; I also enjoyed Temple of Doom.
In fact, I like all the original Indy J films, up until Crystal Skull which was just atrociously bad.
It’s still the grossest one for me, I don’t like bugs but I’m fine with snakes and rats are cool and cuddly
(Crystal Skull is a big bag of crap.)
Oh totally, but it also had Ke Huy Quan being amazing in it…
It’s similar to how Mad Max: Fury Road works well enough as a black and white silent film since most of the story telling is visual in nature. The few lines the film has are spoken well and portrayed in the manner that gives you a larger feeling to the visuals. Lots of films I feel fail at this (look at you Marvel/Disney). I can’t say how you’d fix such things cause I’m not a director or anything, but I do know what looks good and is enjoyable for me in film.
He was cool, still is! I had a New Yorkers hat because he did and I wore it until it was worn out.
I was 36 when I bought it, but still.
Just thinking of the opening bars of the Indiana Jones’ themes makes me smile.
The bugs in Temple of Doom make me squirm.
Cat Capshaw must have had nerves of steel to allow them to crawl in to her hair. I would just have fainted and got squished; but, then, I would probably have fled the palace screaming after being served chilled monkey brains
She was great!
That’s easy for Sir Patrick to say; he’s got no hair for massive bugs to crawl in to.
Didn’t BoingBoing post this many years ago? I had the link saved 3 or 4 computers ago and would often revisit the B&W version. After Soderberg disallowed screen maximization I lost interest. I think the current music was added later. Did this sound familiar to anyone?
That sulky little frown at the end is ace
We get a lot of ReBoings here, and sometimes BoingBoing Classic.
