Laws Broken: Indiana Jones

Laws Broken: Indiana Jones

We all rooted for Indiana Jones on his skin-of-the-teeth archeological adventures. But as attorney Devin Stone of LegalEagle points out, our hero was quite the criminal, as he tallies up the likely penalties he’d face for robbing graves, transporting stolen artifacts, murder, and statutory rape. Yikes.

Honest Indiana Jones Trailer

Honest Indiana Jones Trailer

Screen Junkies takes on not just one movie, but three, as it roasts Raiders of the Lost Ark, Temple of Doom, and The Last Crusade in a single Honest Trailer. From bad stereotypes to Kate Capshaw’s endless screaming, the trilogy had its flaws, but they were packed with great action and fight sequences, and a blast to watch.

The Adventures of Indiana Jones

The Adventures of Indiana Jones

Character designer and animator Patrick Schoenmaker spent a good part of his free time over the last five years to bring us his handmade trailer for the Indiana Jones cartoon we wish were actually a series. We’d tune in every Saturday morning to watch this one.

BB-8 vs. Indiana Jones

BB-8 vs. Indiana Jones

While the sound effects are all wrong, we got a good chuckle from Reid Southen’s doctoring of this scene from Raiders of the Lost Ark, replacing the giant boulder with another round, rolly object. Also, he made this a year ago, so he had no idea what BB-8 sounded like yet.

Indiana Jones in Real Life

Indiana Jones in Real Life

Devin Supertramp and his buddies had fun at the Zorb park in Rotorua, New Zealand, which has a downhill course where you can reenact the boulder scene from Raiders of the Lost Ark with other people inside the inflatable ball.

Indiana Jones Stop Motion

Indiana Jones Stop Motion

Jeff Gurwood replicated the classic opening scene of Raiders of the Lost Ark using action figures. It’s not the smoothest stop motion clip we’ve seen, but the devil is in the details with this one.

Editor: Indiana Jones 2

While we only caught a glimpse of it in the debut trailer, this developer’s walkthrough gives us an in-depth look on Lego Indiana Jones 2’s editor; the consensus: like LBP, but in 3D.

LEGO Indiana Jones 2

LEGO Indiana Jones 2 gets more characters, vehicles and settings over the original, but here’s what really knocks our blocks off: for the first time, you’ll get to design your own levels.

The Holy Grail probably won’t bring eternal life to your paperclips, but pen and pencil robbers will think twice before pillaging your stash of Indiana Jones desktop accessories.

John Rhys-Davies on YouTube

Best known for his roles in the Indiana Jones and Lord of the Rings movies, actor John Rhys-Davies recently started his own YouTube channel. Among the many charming, witty, and insightful clips you can find there is this amusing video, in which he welcomes visitors to his channel from his home in the Isle of Man.

The Mummy Honest Trailer

The Mummy Honest Trailer

It’s hard to believe it’s been 20 years since Brendan Fraser first appeared in The Mummy, and to celebrate the auspicious anniversary, Screen Junkies is here to lovingly roast the only Mummy movie worth even talking about. Sure, it was an Indiana Jones knockoff, but we still love it.

Raiders of the Lost Ark LEGO Diorama

Raiders of the Lost Ark LEGO Diorama

Teenager Caleb Watson built one of the best LEGO displays we’ve ever seen. It’s a kinetic diorama of the opening scene from Raiders of the Lost Ark. It breaks the scene down into multiple segments, including fetching the idol, and the boulder rolling after Indiana Jones.

Great Character Introductions

Great Character Introductions

CineFix enumerates some of the ways movies introduce their characters along with shining examples of each method. There’s Indiana Jones’ slow approach, James Bond’s slick intros, Darth Vader’s badass entrance and more.

Best Foot Chase Ever

Best Foot Chase Ever

A seemingly endless chase sequence from the 1925 Buster Keaton film Seven Chances, as he’s pursued by a massive horde of women, through city streets, a football stadium, the suburbs, and into the countryside. Indiana Jones has nothing on Keaton’s epic boulder scene.

Biisuke’s Big Ball Adventure

Biisuke’s Big Ball Adventure

When was the last time a Rube Goldberg machine made your heart race? Because this classic from Japanese children’s show Pitagora Suichi is as exciting as an Indiana Jones flick. Plus it has an awesome theme song. “I’ll be there brothers, hang on, almost there!”

Raiders and Star Wars Film Echoes

Raiders and Star Wars Film Echoes

Video editor WhoIsPablo did top-and-bottom comparisons of the original Raiders of the Lost Ark films with Indiana Jones 4, as well as the original three Star Wars films with the prequels, identifying numerous, often intentional, parallels between new and old.

DUM: I’ll Be Around

DUM: I’ll Be Around

For their latest hum-worthy music video, DUM yet again face-swapped themselves with movie actors, this time choosing Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom as their subject of choice. Even the chilled monkey brains got a new face.

Raiders of the Lost Bark

Raiders of the Lost Bark

In this silly short film, Final Cut King reimagines the adventures of Indiana Jones (er, Indiana Bones) with his puppy playing our heroic archaologist and kittens playing the evil Nazis. The boulder made from duct tape is priceless.

Greatest Movie Deaths

Greatest Movie Deaths

(Gore) The favorite movie death scenes of the 26 directors of The ABCs of Death 2, from the face-melting scene in Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark to Marion Cotillard’s hilariously awful acting in The Dark Knight Rises.

The Last Crusade in 60 Seconds

The Last Crusade in 60 Seconds

1A4STUDIO takes us on another breakneck run – this time through Indiana Jones’ third adventure. Though to be honest, about the only thing we remember about this film is the motorcycle chase anyhow. And Sean Connery’s dapper bowtie.

Roosevelt Camel Leather Bag

Roosevelt Camel Leather Bag

Made from authentic Indian camel leather with iron and brass hardware, Buffalo Jackson’s shoulder briefcase would be the one that Indiana Jones carried his Mac Book in – if there were such a thing as a laptop back in the 1930s.

LEGO + Baking Soda Dioramas

LEGO + Baking Soda Dioramas

Artist Vesa Lehtimäki (aka “Avanaut“) used LEGO minifigs and a heaping helping of baking soda to recreate (and reimagine) snowy scenes from The Empire Strikes Back and Indiana Jones among other flicks.
