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.
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.
Throw me the idol, I throw you the brick! BenBuildsLego’s sweet design celebrates the three original Indiana Jones movies. The 650-piece set features dioramas of The Temple of Doom, The Well of Souls, and Temple of the Sun, each a location where Indy recovered a rare historical artifact. Show your support on LEGO Ideas.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!”
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.
