Fun with Franchises: Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981), Part IV — “I Know When to Kill My Problems”

We continue with another entry in our Fun with Franchises series. This week’s film is Raiders of the Lost Ark.

Fun with Franchises is a series born out of my friend Colin and I realizing how much fun it was for the two of us to watch the same movie separately and then share our reactions. We started by watching all of the James Bond movies, for the purposes of ranking them for the blog. I brought him in because he was much more of a Bond expert than I was at the time, and I felt his perspective would liven things up. He would be the color commentator to my play-by-play man.

We soon discovered that, by watching the movies separately and then putting everything we said together in the same place, hilarity ensued. We each brought in our own observations, not knowing what the other would say, and then reacted to what the other said. And we loved every minute of it.

We had so much fun, we figured we had to do it again. So we graduated from a single franchise, to all franchises. If you’re gonna have fun with franchises, it wouldn’t be right if you didn’t franchise it. Season 1 included the Harry Potter movies, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Twilight (which neither of us had seen before we watched them for the articles) and Pirates of the Caribbean. All of those articles can be read on the Fun with Franchises page.

Also, just so we’re clear, this is all for parody. We’re just messing with them because we love them. (Well… Twilight…) We’re watching movies we enjoy and are simply having some fun with them.

Right now, we’re doing the Indiana Jones franchise, and today is the fourth part of Raiders of the Lost Ark.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - Title Card

We begin Part IV as someone FINALLY figures some shit out.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1306

They say Belloq likes the girl too much. Belloq says their methods are too primitive. They’d use a bulldozer to find a china cup.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1307

Finally, fucking SOMEBODY notices.

Colin:

And now they’re just pulling an enormous thing out of the ground as the sun comes up. Idiots.

Everybody here is dumb.

The whole thing is saved by iconic music and images. I’m telling you. If this isn’t directed by Spielberg, this movie is pretty forgettable.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1308

This is what’s so cool about Belloq. He’s not really a villain. He’s just an adversary. Sure, he pulls a dick move on Indy at the beginning, making Indy go through all the shit and then taking it from him, but otherwise, he’s a smart dude, and really just seems to give a shit about the archaeology and not anything else. (Well… the pussy…)

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1309

He looks like he’s grabbing his dick.

Also, those guys are just sleeping outside.

Colin:

He does look like he’s gonna piss on those guys at sunrise. Which is a good time for pissing if ever there was one.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1310

Nice shot.

Or as I like to call it, Douchebags Taking Off at Sunset.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1311

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1312

If you’re that afraid of snakes, wouldn’t you go up first?

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1313

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1314

Wow, this almost doesn’t look choreographed.

Colin:

I’m inclined to give it to them. Based on all I know about Nazis (from watching The Producers), they were a well-choreographed bunch and most of the women had beer and pretzel titties.

Beer and Pretzel Titties.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1315

And not a single “schnell” was said.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1316

Colin:

“I’m gonna eat you!”

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1317

Colin:

“Ah, motherfucker. 2000 years without a single meal and I blow it.”

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1318

Colin:

“Maybe I can catch the rope in my mouth and eat that.”

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1319

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1320

Ahoy down there.

Colin:

There’s really no need to wave. You’re the only item in the line of sight. Don’t wave unless you’re in a crowd.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1321

Of course.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1322

Oh, well damn.

Do you think they killed his guys, or…

Colin:

I like how all the Arabs get the cheap seats in the background. The way it’s been since Oliver Reed opened for business like 1700 years ago.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1323

“Why, Dr. Jones, what ever are you doing in such a nasty place?”

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1324

“Why don’t you come on down here, I’ll show you.”

Colin:

Remember that line in Christmas Vacation? “Hey Griswald! Where you gonna put a tree that big?” “Bend over, and I’ll show you!” I would like to see Chevy Chase play a Nazi.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1325

“So once again, Jones, what was briefly yours is now mine. What a fitting end to your life’s pursuits. You’re about to become a permanent addition to this archaeological find.”

Well that’s cold-blooded. You’re gonna leave him to die?

Colin:

Can you imagine what that would do to the historical record? You’re messing it up for whoever finds it in the future. Like how some diggers found a chamber in an ancient building where the artifacts didn’t match anything at all and they were all confused and thinking about rewriting some of history based on it until they found out that it was actually a museum and that there were cuneiform tablets explaining all the old shit in the room. But doesn’t that make you want to find amazing archaeological treasures and prank the world by altering something and then leaving it “unfound” for someone else to discover much later?

Like, put a “Made in China” sticker on a sarcophagus or something and then seal the place up again and never tell anyone you’d found it. And then when they discover it hundreds of years later, everyone will be confused. I basically just want to troll future people. That’s what my whole life is.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1326

“Who knows? In a thousand years, even you may be worth something.”

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1327

Yes, let us laugh at my imminent demise.

Convenient how the snakes don’t attack during the important scene.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1328

“Son of a bitch.” Nice mumble under the breath.

Colin:

“Ha ha ha ha HAH sonofabitch.”

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1329

Also nice that he remembered he should probably keep doing that if he doesn’t want to die.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1330

They gotta go. They gotta get to Berlin.

(P.S. Nice framing of the dude in the back between the other dude’s legs.)

Colin:

I mostly appreciate the framing at the top of the shot. You all know by now that I’m a sucker for overhead framing. The Millennium Falcon in Mos Eisley as the stormtroopers arrive, the Nazgul wing as Miranda Otto’s about to get pimp smacked with a mace.

Love me some overhead framing. Almost gives it a sand-rock vagina feel to it.

Anyway, they don’t want to leave him down there all alone.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1331

So they’re gonna throw her in there as well.

Damn shame to be losing such a fine thing, huh?

So I’ll be having that dress back.

Colin:

Franchises rhyme. People getting stabbed and stuff like that. 

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1332

What, you have no problem killing Jones, but killing her is unacceptable?

Colin:

I never noticed that all his diggers are being held hostage here. None of them rat on Sallah, which is nice.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1333

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1334

“Bye, bitch.”

Colin:

That’s one of the harshest things we’ve seen so far. Dude just pushes her in REAL FAST.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1335

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1336

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1337

Wow. You just hit a snake with a shoe. I’m sure its not mad at all about that.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1338

I can see up yo dress.

Colin:

“I got one! Now if I can just bite down!”

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1339

Oh, but you’re wearing shorts. That’s a shame.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1340

This shot is one of those shots that epitomizes the action-adventure movie.

Colin:

Sand?

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1341

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1342

And then there’s this.

Colin:

Some women need to not wear open-toed shoes. All the meat pouring out.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1343

The dinosaur should have brushed better.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1344

Colin:

“GOD DAMN IT! I’m so fucking hungry.”

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1345

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1346

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1347

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1348

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1349

Nice… not really a catch. More, you blocked her fall with your body.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1350

“Traitor! You get your hands off of me!”

How nice. “Catch me, catch me, oh, I’m safe. Fuck you, get your hands off me.”

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1351

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1352

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1353

Did you not no… actually, fair enough. That motherfucker just threw her right down there and she somehow had the wherewithal to hold onto the dinosaur tooth. I’ll accept that she didn’t notice the snakes. Somehow.

Colin:

We’ve all seen this face before. You know, when you show her the D. And she’s like, “This is a preschool parking lot!” And you’re like, “I know you do, baby.”

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1354

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1355

Also funny, “Get away from me! Oh shit, snakes, help me!”

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1356

The Nazis must be loving this.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1357

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1358

This shot.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1359

This must have been hilarious for them to shoot.

Colin:

Benny Hill theme?

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1360

“The girl was mine!”

Colin:

That’s the difference between IS and WAS. Little-known fact: this is where Michael Jackson got the idea for The Girl Is Mine. Before McCartney got him to make it appeal to a wider audience, the original first verse was about this.

“Every night she walks right in my dreams / Since you pushed her in that crypt / I had tried to fuck her in my tent / Where she drank some booze and stripped / The girl was mine! / The doggone girl was mine!”

Man, remember how easy things were back then? You could just make deals for women, and assume they’d just be with you even though you owned them?

Oh, but yeah, MJ. He was actually originally cast as Satipo, but scheduling conflicts caused him to bow out. So instead he made that E.T. song.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1361

Why can’t we hear her screaming down there?

“It was not to be, cheri.”

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1362

“You bastard! I’ll get you for this!”

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1363

“Indiana Jones, adieu.”

Wow, not even addressing her.

Colin:

I like that there’s SOME French, anyway. 

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1364

Nazi Toby Jones enjoys this.

Colin:

That’s a great character moment. Creepy bastard walking away laughing because they’re about to be sealed in a tomb to be killed eaten by snakes.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1365

So are they just gonna kill the Arabs who helped dig, or…

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1366

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1367

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1368

OPTIMUS!

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1369

GREAT use of sound design, though. Have her scream “NO!” and then have it get cut off once the Well is covered up. That shit just drops out. Because a fucking 500 pound piece of stone just got put on top of the hole, that’s why. You can’t hear shit no more.

I’d say they’re probably going to suffocate now, but those snakes survived a long ass time, so they’ll be fine. Plus, you know they’re okay, beacuse the snakes got there somehow, so you know there’s an alternate route.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1370

What do they do with him now?

Colin:

Oh, right, they DID get Sallah. I thought his partners in shiftiness had kept the secrets, but Sallah was there the whole time anyway.

I guess they aren’t taking these people seriously. They just figure they’re dumb, so they won’t give them any trouble.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1371

Oh, shit, they all alone now. This is revenge time. You burnt up six of his friends.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1372

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1373

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1374

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1375

“Take this. Wave it at anything that slithers.”

What if it’s his dick?

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1376

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1377

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1378

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1379

“What the hell, man?!”

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1380

I like that real animals are being harmed here.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1381

“Where’d you get this, from him?”

“I was trying to escape. No thanks to you.”

“How hard were you trying?”

Colin:

Now they’ll bicker while trying to survive for another two minutes.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1382

Why not climb into the statue’s undercarriage?

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1383

Tear off that motherfucker.

Colin:

He’s too busy trying to climb into her undercarriage.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1384

“How are we gonna get out of here?”

“I’m working on it.”

Colin:

She has a really annoying voice.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1385

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1386

Well, there’s your answer.

Colin:

Leitmotif to the rescue!

Although considering two snakes just came out of there, one right after the other, either they just fucked or there are a lot of them behind there.

Colin:

Where did the snake noises go?

Cleveland.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1387

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1388

“Where you going?”

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1389

“Through that wall.”

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1390

Selective archaeology.

This wall isn’t important.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1391

Always bring panties to a snake fight.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1392

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1393

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1394

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1395

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1396

Wait, isn’t that bucket full of gasoline?

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1397

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1398

“Cheerio, good sir. I was wondering if you might have any spare bob on you?”

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1399

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1400

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1401

Her tit got burned.

Colin:

That’s a delicacy in Japan. You only just tinge it. 

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1402

Doesn’t even care that he just dropped a snake on her.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1403

Or that.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1404

Nice catch.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1405

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1406

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1407

He’s gonna ride that dinosaur through the wall.

Something I wish I said way more than I do.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1408

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1409

“I’m Indiana Jones, and welcome to Jackass!”

Colin:

My favorite imagined Jackass movie character intro was Bonnie Blue Butler.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1410

Yeah, you’ve been bitten like twice by now.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1411

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1412

I prefer my dinosaurs posing.

Colin:

That looks like one of the Kritters from Donkey Kong Country. Which, what a great fucking game that was. Up there with the Mario games for SNES.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1413

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1414

Man, it would suck if that thing fell completely short of the wall.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1415

Or if the wall didn’t break.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1416

Not like that wall was important or anything. Probably had the cure for AIDS on it.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1417

Ah… a room full of dead guys.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1418

Of course. Leave the torch. Take the stilettos.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1419

And not a single snake bite. Sure.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1420

You gotta feel for her. She has to run through an Egyptian tomb barefoot.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1421

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1422

GPOY

Colin:

This just got WAY more ridiculous. She just somehow got doused in corpses.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1423

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1424

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1425

That looks like Phantom of the Opera Lon Chaney. Even down to the hair.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1426

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1427

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1428

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1429

Well this is just your fault now. This is like Sideshow Bob and rakes.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1430

They’re here for the gangbang.

Fun fact. I typed out gangbang as two words, and spell check corrected me. “No… gangbang is one word.” So glad my computer knows how to spell the word gangbang better than I do.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1431

Fucking seriously. THEY DON’T MOVE. YOU ARE MOVING THEM. JUST STAND STILL AND THEY WILL GO AWAY.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1432

It actually does look like she’s being raped by skeletons, though.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1433

I love how Indy is nowhere to be found during all of this.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1434

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1435

Of course, he has to come to save her.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1436

He just had to save her from dead people. That just happened.

Colin:

A strange moment, for sure. Not positive why it was included. But you know, meh.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1437

Look, an exit. Why am I hoping this turns into one of those Suspiria exits?

(If you haven’t seen Suspiria, don’t worry about it. Just keep missing out.)

Colin:

Ooooooooh noooooooooo. I’m due to watch that movie again in 2038. Maybe. But if and when you guys do decide to watch Suspiria, I recommend you do it the way I did: in the dark, with earbuds or headphones instead of speakers, and on a screen that you’re close to. I’m advocate for small screens for horror movies, cause you’re more likely to be close to them and your periphery just disappears. Noise-cancelling earbuds, my laptop screen close-up, total darkness and a window open to let in some cold, damp air on a rainy October night…I was scared shitless by that movie.

He’s kidding. It’s a comedy. You’re good.

Do the at night thing with headphones, though.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1438

Wow, the one crouton shaped rock in that entire tomb. Weird how no one noticed how haphazardly that was put in. What, were they drinking, like, “Hey Joey, that one rock fell out? Ah, fuck it, just throw something in there. No one’ll even see that side.”

Colin:

Kinda like in the old cartoons, especially the Hanna-Barberas, where there would always be that one thing that was off-color and you knew in advance that it was going to move.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1439

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1440

And not a single Nazi heard that.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1441

Colin:

How did they not see this wall right next to the airfield? You mean to tell me they were digging around in random sand and didn’t try to see what was on the other side of this wall that’s exposed to their fucking airstrip?

Also pretty crazy that the Ark was hiding in plain fucking sight. Why not just check all of the buildings?

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1442

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1443

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1444

She still isn’t wearing any shoes, by the way. In case you thought these damsels had it easy.

Colin:

These damsels ain’t loyal.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1445

Is that guy just sleeping through all of this? Or did he die, and they just left him there?

Also, look how fucking far that block fell. And no one turned around? Not even the fucking camel?

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1446

That is an awesome plane. The design on that is incredible.

Colin:

This plane isn’t right. Flying wings were happening way after this. Even if you make the case that the earliest flying wing glider concepts were around at this time – no. I know what I’m talking about and this shit is DECADES early.

I also love those kinds of cars. I’d totally want to drive one of those. Fuck the new sports cars. Just give me one of those things.

Colin:

I always thought you’d have a weird car. Strangely, though, I have no idea what it would be.

And yet, whatever it is, it’ll make sense.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1447

Couple of things. First – never hide behind the barrels. You know those things are prime explosion bait. The barrels always get shot first. Second – I love the abundance of barrels in action-adventure movies. Third, why the fuck are the barrels there in the first place? Plane fuel? Or just because that’s what’s there in these kinds of movies? Fourth, I love how they built a hut here for like, no reason. That looks like where Sessue Hayakawa stayed in The Bridge on the River Kwai.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1448

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1449

“When that Ark gets loaded, we’re already gonna be on the plane.”

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1450

This motherfucker knows how to do it.

Colin:

Nazis were weird about their boots.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1451

I love that they have their own specially painted crates. Amazon should ship in crates like those.

Colin:

When places ship in wooden crates, that’s cool. Got some special Fuchs rims in a wooden crate once. That was about it. But there wasn’t straw. I wanted there to be straw.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1452

I want a car whose spare tire is up by the passenger door like that.

Colin:

They really need to bring back running boards. Only SUVs have them now, and they’re great.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1453

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1454

I’m a ghost ghost ghost ghost ghost.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1455

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1456

Holy shit, this looks like the desert safehouse/air strip in San Andreas.

Man, did I have so many fun times standing on the roof of those plane hangars, lobbing grenades down at the tanks and FBI vehicles when I had six stars. And shooting down police helicopters one after another.

It’s actually impossible to die that way. The only way you die is if you decide you’re bored and start taking risks, or if a helicopter lands right on top of the bunker with you. You can stay up there for two hours if you want. And we have.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1457

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1458

HOW DO YOU NOT NOTICE THAT OTHER GUY?!!!

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1459

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1460

I love that he’s holding a wrench.

You came to the wrong neighborhood, motherfucker!

Colin:

Nobody has those wrenches anymore. What the hell is wrong with America? We used to be a wrench-carrying nation. Not anymore.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1461

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1462

How could you not see that coming?

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1463

Oh man, that plane has a gunner box. That’s so awesome. Sit in there and just shoot motherfuckers.

Colin:

This is what it’s like in Mike’s head, ladies and gentlemen. “Fucking gunner box! I’d just sit in there and shoot people! BLAM BLAM BLAM!” I also share that sentiment.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1464

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1465

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1466

The Arabs just don’t give a fuck, do they?

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1467

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1468

Oh, I love when people punch like that. The downward punch.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1469

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1470

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1471

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1472

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1473

Oh, this motherfucker’s been waiting for this shit all his life.

Colin:

I love a guy who sees shit going down and just takes off his shirt to throw down.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1474

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1475

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1476

How oblivious is that pilot?

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1477

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1478

You can only make this situation worse.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1479

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1480

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1481

I love a guy who doesn’t have to run into the fight, because he knows that when he gets there, he’s gonna fuck people up.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1482

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1483

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1484

Oh sure, now you turn around.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1485

Oh man, wooden blocks. Love that.

Also, you’re about to do something stupid.

Colin:

This whole sequence makes no sense, but it’s fun.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1486

Sandow wants to fight.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1487

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1488

I love that. “Goddamnit…”

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1489

“All right, all right, I’m coming.”

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1490

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1491

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1492

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1493

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1494

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1495

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1496

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1497

Wow, you fell for that? No one’s fallen for that since the Zulu Wars.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1498

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1499

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1500

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1501

No clue why this is happening, but who cares, really.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1502

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1503

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1504

Where did Marion go?

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1505

Well that seems unnecessary. And late.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1506

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1507

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1508

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1509

Gotta do what you gotta do.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1510

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1511

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1512

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1513

That, should have probably hit him.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1514

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1515

Wow, you literally walked right into that one.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1516

You should be shot right now.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1517

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1518

Wow. The backhanded punch. Nice one.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1519

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1520

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1521

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1522

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1523

This is a weirdly choreographed scene.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1524

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1525

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1526

Ah, the Mr. Fuji.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1527

Why are you not firing?

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1528

Too late.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1529

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1530

Was that part of the plan? Because I figured you were doing it to fuck with the plane.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1531

Never knock out a pilot.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1532

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1533

There have to be more blocks than that.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1534

Wipe yourself off, Jones. You’re bleeding.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1535

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1536

So plane windows close just like that, huh?

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1537

Aww… and now you’re locked in the cockpit with a concussed German.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1538

And no one has noticed a thing so far.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1539

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1540

Oh good. Somebody noticed.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1541

What exactly is happening right now? Everyone else is gone. So what’s this plane doing here, and what are they trying to do? Do we know?

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1542

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1543

Yup.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1544

YEAH!

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1545

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1546

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1547

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1548

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1549

So she just killed like six people.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1550

Colin:

She’s shooting all these guys and yet Hans here is still intent on finishing the fist fight.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1551

There’s always a fuel truck.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1552

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1553

Fun fact: While shooting this scene, the plane actually ran over Harrison Ford’s knee during a take, and tore up a bunch of his ligaments. Only instead of getting medical attention, he just wrapped his leg in ice and moved one. Just in case you thought Episode VII was a good idea.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1554

I miss the days when people were gung ho about murder.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1555

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1556

YES! The old 30s death scene. Stand straight up, then fall over. More of this.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1557

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1558

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1559

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1560

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1561

I’m sure that gun still works.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1562

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1563

I wanna do this.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1564

SEE?! All barrels explode.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1565

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1566

Oh, they’re still here. Good. And no one still knew about this?

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1567

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1568

Nice way to wake up.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1569

And they’re still just standing there.

I bet Sallah just ran away at this point. Since no one seems to give a shit about him.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1570

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1571

Just climb through the gun hole.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1572

It shouldn’t be that hard to run away from the giant lumbering dude.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1573

See? Look at this running fuck.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1574

Shoot the bald guy.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1575

But not that.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1576

This will end well.

Also, sucks to be that guy. He’s not even dead (yet).

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1577

“Oh my god.”

I thought you were gonna shoot it. That’s not as fun.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1578

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1579

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1580

There we go. He’s alive. For now.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1582

WHY ARE YOU FOLLOWING HIM UP THERE? This guy just wants to fight anything.

Wait… how is the guy underneath the plain covered in gasoline if there isn’t a trail leading from that truck to here?

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1583

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1584

Seriously, you’re cutting to it and then back, but we can clearly see there is no gasoline connecting these two vehicles.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1585

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1586

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1587

Crawl out through the gun hole. Seriously.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1588

Get your fire away from these barrels, essentially.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1589

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1590

This guy just does not care about exploding. He wants to punch people.

I respect that.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1591

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1592

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1593

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1594

Hey, you broke his nose!

Great. Now why are you still fighting?

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1595

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1596

How’d you get so much water in your mouth?

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1597

Kick him in the balls.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1599

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1600

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1601

See, he does that, and immediately, I drop.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1602

Dumb bastard.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1603

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1604

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1605

Facial expressions.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1606

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1607

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1608

Oh, now THAT is a nice shot. That’s some legit amount of blood going on right there.

Colin:

I need a juicer, though.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1609

Goddamn, that’s a lot of blood.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1610

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1611

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1612

Gasoline moves slow.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1613

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1614

Remember when people did these explosions for real?

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1615

Look how dangerous this actually looks. We can SEE gasoline and fire spreading, and these actors are on a plane RIGHT in front of it. That’s real tension.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1616

I mean, sure, they lit it so it’d go around the truck, but still.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1617

Sucks to be that pilot.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1618

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1619

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1620

This is where Bay got it from.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1621

So obviously where Bay got it from.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1622

Black smoke. That’s a real explosion.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1623

Colin:

Let’s all take a moment to appreciate John Williams.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1624

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1625

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1626

Aww, Uncle Fuck’s Tickle Hut exploded.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1627

Wouldn’t you wait before surveying the scene of a gasoline fire?

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1628

“I want plenty of protection.”

There’s a line.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1629

And a punchline.

How did that happen, again?

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1630

This is some There Will Be Blood shit.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1631

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1632

“Jones.”

You’re wearing a neckerchief.

Also, this is happening because you didn’t just shoot him. That’s the problem with bad guys. They always assume the good guys will die, rather than making sure.

Colin:

I would be such a good bad guy, cause I would know when to kill my problems.

I Know When to Kill My Problems

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1633

“Holy smoke, my friends. I’m so pleased you’re not dead!”

This is actually how I greet my friends. That’s not even a joke.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1634

This will be one of my favorite shots of the movie, simply because we go from outside to a darkly lit tent in a single shot. That’s really impressive, to go from such extremes and not lose focus or have lighting difficulties.

I’m noticing that my favorite shots in this movie have less to do with framing or composition as much as they do great directing. There are some really nice complex camera movements going on in this movie, and I’ve really never noticed them before

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1635

Sallah says the Ark is on a truck headed for Cairo.

“Truck? What truck?”

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1636

That truck.

P.S. Editing.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1637

Also, how did you know it was being loaded onto a truck if it wasn’t already on the truck? Was that the plan all along? To put it on the truck? Was the plane just aerial support? Or was it only there for the setpiece?

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1638

Does no one care that this priceless artifact is just being carried around in the open like this?

The Arabs’ entire religion is almost being disproven by the existence this one box. And no one cares.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1639

I love how realistic this actually is. So much shit going on, no one’s paying attention to these people just hanging out over here. They’re RIGHT there, and yet no one notices.

Because I’d notice. That’s who I am. I’d be the one looking around.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1640

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1641

Are they rioting? What’s going on?

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1642

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1643

Nice ride.

Colin:

Convoy time. Eastbound and down. And a drop-top Mercedes as your blocker car.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1644

Yup. Always have the goggles on.

Not quite a beanie, but it’s the Middle East.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1645

Why are you pointing your gun like that?

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1646

Directors love shots of people starting cycles like this.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1647

“Get back to Cairo. Get us some transport to England. Boat, plane, anything. Meet me at Omar’s. Be ready for me.”

He’s a really demanding bastard, Indiana Jones. It’s great how they consider him such a hero, even though he’s really only an action hero. Kind of like James Bond. He’s actually kind of a dick to women.

Also, look at Sallah. He’s like, “I like yo legs, baby.”

Colin:

Boat back to England. I welcome this development. This is a good movie, but what if [bad] movies gave you the opportunity to stop watching and switch to something else with random cues? Like, he’d tell her to arrange a boat trip to England and at the bottom, there’d be a list of WWII-era movies that take place on boats that you could watch instead. Lifeboat? Across the Pacific?

I like how they just know where Omar’s is.

Oh man. Across the Pacific. Remember when we discovered that one? I put that shit on randomly, and within thirty minutes was like, “You have to drop everything you’re doing and watch this shit immediately.” And then, by the end of the day, we’d both seen it. I don’t even want to hype it that much. I kind of like that it’s one of those under the radar great movies.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1648

“I’m going after that truck.”

“How?”

“I don’t know. I’m making this up as I go.”

Notice how she talks back to him throughout the whole movie, but here, he’s like, “Go do this,” and she doesn’t say a fucking word.

Colin:

We love that he’s making it up as he goes. Boring people pride themselves on preparation, but nobody wants to watch a movie about something who makes a plan and sticks to it.

Unless it’s a heist movie.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1649

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1650

What are you whipping the horse for? You have the fucking reins.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1651

Also, why is there a horse there? Don’t they all have camels? Who the fuck brings a horse to the desert? Remember, three weeks in every direction. That horse was deliberately brought here.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1652

War Horse.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1653

Colin:

You can always judge the quality of a Hollywood classic by how many times during the film are brown people stymied by our white hero.

I wish, each time it happens, they hit their knees and say dejectedly, “Ah… stymied again!”

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1654

What do you guys do all day when you’re not being oppressed?

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1655

I love shots like this, of a camera tracking a horse. Because you get those perfect moments where only the horse and the rider are in focus.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1656

Nobody cares that this guy is on this horse.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1657

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1658

Oh, no big deal, it’s not like the biggest archaeological find in history is sitting between all of you guys.

Colin:

These guys are all bouncing back and forth like they’re riding horses. How much does that suck? Their job is to sit with a box.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1659

Why aren’t goggles a thing anymore?

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1660

Why aren’t the overhead windshield wipers a thing anymore?

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1661

Seriously, I want to know what asshole brought this horse to the desert like this? And if you did bring a horse to the desert, how can you be stupid enough to lose it?

I know some horses are bred for this kind of climate and terrain, but still.

Colin:

Nice Arabian horse. Arabian horses are boss.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1662

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1663

Horse power.

I’m sure Colin will know more concrete numbers off the top of his head, but I’m pretty sure he actually has a legitimate shot at running that car down with that horse.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1664

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1665

That horse must be like, “What the fuck am I doing?”

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1666

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1667

See?

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1668

Now the horse is like, “What the fuck are you doing?”

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1669

Look at the path down the hill. You can see all the previous takes.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1670

Colin:

THIS SONG IS THE SHIT

It’s not as all-out dark and badass sounding as the Jedi Temple March from Revenge of the Sith, but I’m so much more into what’s going on here. And it’s more upbeat and classic.

Fun fact: John Williams did not win an Oscar for this score.

Wanna know who beat him?

Vangelis. Chariots of Fire.

Not totally a “what the fuck” choice, but also not exactly an “Oh, that makes sense” one wither.

While we’re on the subject… other John Williams iconic scores that didn’t win Oscars:

Close Encounters. (Though that’s because he lost to Star Wars. Think about that one. He had both of those scores in the same year.)

Superman. (Lost to Midnight Express. Giorgio Moroder. Think the Scarface music.)

He lost for all the Star Wars and Indy sequels, since… more of the same, essentially. Though the Imperial March was a product of the Empire score.

Jurassic Park. (Wan’t even nominated for that one. Though he won for Schindler’s List that year, so it’s fine.)

Saving Private Ryan. (Lost to The Red Violin.)

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. (Lost to Fellowship.)

His next nomination is gonna be his 50th, by the way.

How confident are we feeling he’s gonna get nominated for The Force Awakens?

He’s gotta also be on the shortlist for Spielberg’s new movie, too.

Or even both.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1671

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1672

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1673

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1674

And, right there, you’re about to get shot.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1675

Genius.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1676

Firing at the Ark.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1677

If this were made today, they’d have had a dam explode or something while this was happening, and they’d have to outrun the water.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1678

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1679

That’s a Mercedes.

Though I guess it’s about to become a… Ford.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1680

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1681

I wanna do that one day.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1682

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1683

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1684

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1685

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1686

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1687

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1688

I love how these guys always let themselves be thrown out of the trucks.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1689

What’s funny is, he’ll be the only one that lives.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1690

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1691

That dude’s kept a steady grip on the wheel. Which is funny, since I was about to chide him for losing control of the car. Problem is, he doesn’t, which is badass. Other problem is – I see him turn the wheel all the way to the right and back again. And that truck has not swerved at all.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1692

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1693

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1694

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1695

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1696

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1697

Look at that pedal.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1698

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1699

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1700

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1701

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1702

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1703

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1704

WILHELM SCREAM!

Colin:

Wilhelm scream!

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1705

And he went through the windshield.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1706

Look at that Aryan fuck driving.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1707

Colin:

See how they’ve been driving for like 10 minutes and they’re already at a town? What happened to “the desert is three weeks in every direction?”

Maybe he figured that was because she was being directed by her tiny woman brain and not with a man-made automobile and the divine guidance of the Fuhrer.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1708

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1709

And we wonder why the third world can’t get anywhere.

Colin:

That was like, the Trump Tower of rural Egypt.

I bet people came for miles to see those sticks.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1710

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1711

Wow… your insurance is about to go up.

Colin:

Vehicles running into random stuff is always welcome. Movies these days are all about putting really expensive cars through elaborate chases where they never get a scratch on them and then at the end they’re wrecked. How about whatever cars getting all dinged up?

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1712

You got a brown guy on your windshield.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1713

On second thought… I bet his insurance doesn’t go up.

I bet this is thought of as acceptable.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1714

“The fuck was that?”

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1715

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1716

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1717

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1718

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1719

Nazis and Americans coming together momentarily for their amusement of brown people.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1720

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1721

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1722

Maybe… swerve? Or not do that? You do have the Ark, you know. You’ve won.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1723

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1724

Dinosaur shot.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1725

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1726

I bet those are all of Toht’s dildos and leather.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1727

The sand is wet from previous takes.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1728

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1729

Hey, remember when they’re gonna repeat this exact same chase three movies from now?

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1730

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1731

Looks like he says, “Oh, shit!” Which I love.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1732

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1733

You have the Ark. What are we doing, exactly?

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1734

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1735

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1736

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1737

That was great. Didn’t even give them a chance to turn that into a thing. Just ran them off the road off-screen. Nice touch.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1738

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1739

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1740

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1741

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1742

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1743

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1744

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1745

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1746

Colin:

In Crystal Skull, these poor bastards with the motorcycle would have been devoured by crocodiles.

On the one hand, I understand the sentiment behind what you’re saying, but on the other… it would be really funny if a crocodile came out of that tiny ass puddle and just pulled him under and you heard him scream. That would be as random as two and a half fucks.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1747

It’s pretty great how he commandeered a truck and these guys are still just in the back of it.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1748

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1749

Okay, you’re just making it easier for them to shoot you. I mean, sure, you don’t really have any other play, but still.

Well, maybe you had one play. Brake really fast and then try to spin them out from behind.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1750

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1751

Oh, you know he dead. If he puts his arms up before we cut wide, they’re going right off a cliff.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1752

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1753

Because putting your arms up — perfect shield from falling hundreds of feet to your death.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1754

Boy, that cliff came out of nowhere.

Colin:

Where did this Grand Canyon-sized cliff come from all of a sudden? I like how it looks, but WHAT?

Also, how bad must it be to be the guy not in the car right now? I mean, you’re in the car, maybe you think you have a shot at living, but free falling like that?

He never saw Venice.

Though, by the end of this shot, both guys are out of the car. So they’re really just fucked twelve ways from Earth Day.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1755

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1756

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1757

I don’t know what happens here. The guy says something, then they say, “Okay, break.” But there’s one guy in the back who just stands there, not doing anything.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1758

Only now are these assholes trying anything.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1759

This is amusing.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1760

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1761

Victor McLaglen Nazi doesn’t think this is such a good idea.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1762

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1763

“How my hair look?”

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1764

Gregory Peck / James Mason Nazi is on it.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1765

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1766

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1767

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1768

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1769

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1770

Tree branches apparently cause you to lose your grip on things.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1771

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1772

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1773

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1774

That really shouldn’t be that big a thing to have to overcome. Indy would have held on, no problem.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1775

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1776

Good thing that bush broke his fall.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1777

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1778

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1779

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1780

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1781

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1782

Damn. Look at that blood spatter.

Colin:

It’s always great when your character gets shot this far from the end of the movie. Indiana Jones is the type of character who can get shot and you’re like, “Yeah, this movie is continuing without a problem.” The man just takes punishment like no other.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1783

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1784

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1785

I like the use of blood in this movie. Action movies nowadays don’t use blood realistically.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1786

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1787

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1788

I like that we’re spending time on small-scale action like this. This is more interesting than more complex stuff.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1789

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1790

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1791

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1792

This looks like fun.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1793

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1794

Not so much that part.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1795

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1796

So that guy sees his comrade fall off and is like, “Nah, I can do better.”

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1797

They never really cut out wide. They could be using a bunch of different locations for this chase and we wouldn’t know.

Because I’m not sure where that cliff came from.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1798

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1799

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1800

That was unplanned.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1801

Colin:

Who’s this old ass man? Did they have the cap blow off on purpose so you could see his wispy, white hair?

Robert Loggia Nazi.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1802

Oh man, that’s a GREAT place to sit.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 1803
