Indy can punch himself out of any bad situation! Well, until he can't.

Spoilers for the 4th movie:

I hope this is how they wrote Mutt out of V. Indy just beat him to death between movies.

My SO insists I point out the misogyny of the kid saving the "spoiled songbird" who seems unable to take even the simplest actions to save herself.  Hard to argue with her.

I thought the unnamed character died in a tragic freak gasoline fight accident.

How good are the mine car chase and bridge scenes? 

I absolutely love the last third of Temple. 

The action scenes are very good. 

My wife demands I let all of you know that from what she watched in the last 1/3 she's offended by its treatment of women.

And fin.  Should I do the next one? It may have to wait till tomorrow. 

Most people think The Last Crusade is the second best of the four. Watch the beginning at least, (Skip the fourth film if you don't love the character).

So it's the child-Maharaja behind this after all.  And Amrish Puri in freaky looking headgear. 

Yeah, I have always wondered what animal that skull came from.

The Last Crusade is a nice capstone on the trilogy, and if you enjoyed the first two, then the third is pretty much a must-see film.

By the time he made this one, though, Spielberg had stopped taking chances with his films.  So it is a pleasant jaunt, with fewer live-action flayings, beheadings, propellerings, burnings, heart-wrenchings, child slavery, famine, etc.  A lot more "Hollywood" type of violence, where the gun shoots and people clutch their chests and fall over.

And Shrieking Willie is not a character, while Sean Connery is, so there is that, too.
