The biggest challenge for the new Star Wars was to make us love Rey and Finn as much as Luke and Han. Mission accomplished! But most of the time, when a venerable franchise introduces new characters, it’s a horrendous failure. Here are 10 long-running series that actually made us care about new characters.
Very few people enjoyed Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Actually, I’m not sure if there was a single person who ever watched an Indiana Jones movie before who liked the movie. But as Pablo Fernandez Eyre points out in this video comparison, there were a lot of similarities between the last Indiana…
Like an Indiana Jones puzzle, what you see above is just part of the story. It’s part of a brand new poster by artist JC Richard that takes one of the most iconic scenes in Raiders of the Lost Ark and turns it into a painfully beautiful limited edition poster.
How has it taken this long for someone to come up with this? Get ready to re-experience the climax of Raiders of the Lost Ark as well as provide some mood lighting. A win-win situation!
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.
It's hard to say what my favorite 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's supposed to be in color. Actually, honestly, it's the sick 8-bit soundtrack. That's it.
Say what you want about villains, they have spectacular architecture. But they're also a nightmare to create — which is why we don't have more undersea bases or faces carved into mountains in real life. Here are the weirdest design specs of some of the most famous villain lairs.
Have you noticed that a lot of really awesome things are celebrating their 30th anniversaries this year? The Macintosh computer, Tetris, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? 1984 was also a really good year for movies, but I'll go farther than that: This particular week in 1984 was probably the best week ever to see a movie…
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…
Everyone loves Indiana Jones. That's just science. But you've also probably seen all of them a hundred dozen times. You could go through and watch all of the Young Indiana Jones Chronicles on Netflix (actually, yeah, do that too). Or you could take a night and watch all of these wonderful documentaries about how the…
Starting this evening, Raiders of the Lost Ark returns to theaters for a brief week long engagement. But not just any theater. Doctor Jones is hitting the biggest screen possible—IMAX—as part of the promotion for the upcoming Indiana Jones trilogy release on Blu-ray.
The Groom's cake may be a bit of a consolation prize for otherwise being ignored on the big day but that doesn't men you shouldn't milk it for all its pastry goodness. Like this guy, who got himself the Ark of the Covenant in cake.
Of everything that was wrong with Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull—and there's lots—the atomic bomb scene draws the most ire and criticism from fans. And surprisingly, it turns out it's not even plausible. What?!
How do you propose to the ultimate Indy fan? Not with snakes or crystal skulls, that's for sure. You pop the question with the snap of a whip. Or at least a whip ring.
What if you were trying to get money out of the ATM, and instead you got a snake?
Stuntman Vic Armstrong spent a career taking blows in some of Hollywood's most iconic roles. In this exclusive excerpt from his new book, he describes what it was like to actually, physically, be Indiana Jones.
As Hollywood's premiere stunt man, Vic Armstrong spent decades filling the shoes of iconic roles such as Indiana Jones and James Bond. These photos-donated to Maxim from Armstrong's personal stash-give a glimpse into the life of a stunt man, and its unique mix of rough-and-ready grunt work, and glitzy Hollywood…
Whoa. During the keynote presentation at TechEd Middle East in Dubai, Microsoft's Eric Rudder played the same Indiana Jones-ish game on a Windows computer, a Windows Phone 7 phone, and an Xbox 360. Gaming is about to get real ubiquitous.
