Truly awesome list. "No ticket" is my favorite moment in the series. They also did a great reference to it in the Kevin Smith film "Dogma".

The new one comes out on Thursday over here, can't wait to see it, been a fan of Indy since I was a sprog.
Gonna go and play Indiana Jones & The Fate of Atlantis, back later.

Yes, the Hitler scene! I love that scene, it caught me completely off-guard the first time I saw it, and I was laughing hysterically for a while afterwards. Great list, I c an't really think of any other parts to mention (though maybe the part on the tank where he shoots through 4 guys at once should get an honorable mention).
I got a preview-pass, so I'm seeing Crystal Skull tonight ^_^. Hopefully, like Protoclown said, it won't go where the Star Wars perquels went, or the (ugh) Die Hard sequel.

Awww, Indy using his own feet to stop the mine cart or jumping around because his foot is almost on fire aren't included :(
Still, good list Proto!

My biggest fear for Crystal Skull is that Jar Jar will pop up and ruin the whole thing.

I can't wait to see the new Indy movie. Definitely been waiting a long time for it. Another scene that really gives a feel for who Indy is is when he has to sneak out the window because all of the girls want to talk to him after class. For that point alone I almost wanted to become an archeology professor.

Got my tickets to see Indy 4 for Wednesday night! Unlike BakaGaijin, my greatest fears is the franchise screwing Shia Labeouf. Great list, though.

Back in the early 90s I was a huge Indiana fan, I even remember roaming around my home town with my "whip", which was merely approx. 2 meter long rope I had stolen from the gardenshed, while humming the theme song.
Nice list, I agree completely with number 1. But you should've add the part from The Temple of Doom where Indy tries to pull of the same manouver against two sword wielding arabs, only to notice that he has lost his revolver. I've always loved the face he makes at that moment.
Damn, I should really buy the DVDs. We used to have the trilogy on VHS, but they wore out long time ago. :/

I hope Jar-Jar actually DOES show up in the new Indy movie, 'cuz then we'd finally have enough excuses to go kill George Lucas.
May 20th, 2008, 05:25 PM
With how Lucas has been going, its going to turn out the crystal skull is actualy the gungen glowing orb of peace or whatever that shit was and the colapsing underground tower thingy from the trailer is actualy a wormhole to Jarjar's POS plannet.
May 20th, 2008, 05:36 PM
heh, the last picture reminded me of that South park episode.
May 20th, 2008, 06:44 PM
I am going to see it Thursday I am a little worried, the ticket was free though but I really hope that is does not suck.
May 20th, 2008, 07:01 PM
I'm hoping this some how sparks off two more sequels. Seriously, I need me some more Indy. :(
May 20th, 2008, 09:04 PM
Me and my brother -he's my senior for four years- have been waiting for Indiana Jones 4 for 19 years (I'm 22 right now). Now it's finally comming arround.
Any chance that the Hoverboard from Back to the Future also comes out this year? I don't care if its bright pink!!!
Damn childhood fantasies.
May 20th, 2008, 09:07 PM
One of my favorite moments was in Last Crusade, when Ilsa is preening over captured Indy and Dad, implying that "it was nice while it lasted" - in other words, "you were a good boink", to which both Dad and Indy say "Thanks" at the same time. The look on both their faces was worth the price of admission.
Good List. I agree with #1 - classic.
May 20th, 2008, 09:35 PM
mmm, indy and star wars seemsto practicaly be able to build our entire culture...
May 20th, 2008, 11:10 PM
Awesome list Proto - #1 was fantastic, and I love the tip of the hat to it in Temple of Doom where his holster comes up empty.
Really, Really looking forward to Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, and it's going to have to really go out of its way to suck for me to not enjoy it. What's really making my arse clench in fear right now however is Lucas's comment about how he can see Shibby LaBarf taking over the main roll in upcoming Indy movies, with Harrison stepping back into more of the Sean Connery roll in Last Crusade. That would be a travesty worse than...well, Jar Jar.
May 20th, 2008, 11:45 PM
Great list, but I can't believe you left out Indy's immprtal line, "I hate Snakes!"
May 21st, 2008, 01:31 AM
Just got back from Crystal Skull. I'm sure this site will do a full review so I'll save myself until then, but here's the short story (short to me at least):
Really enjoyed it, kept me entertained the whole way through. Had some really awesome scenes, and at least one that not only crosses the line into fantastically over-the-top, it takes a piss on it (who likes nukes?). Of course, I really enjoyed that scene as well. Generally, the plot goes quite... well, it's a bit hard to explain without spoiling some stuff. Definitely goes deep into paranormal region (really deep), and I liked it. It seemed amazingly cool.
Overall (after just one viewing, I'll need more. So many more), I'd peg it at above Temple of Doom and below The Last Crusade (being closer to the former than the latter). Not exactly a bad thing, mind you, since I really enjoyed Temple of Doom as well. A pretty good series revival, if you ask me (now I need to see it again, see how it holds up).
Also: I was very happy to see Janitor getting some more roles, even if it was little more than a cameo. Totally love him ^_^
May 21st, 2008, 03:46 AM
I can definitely agree with the list. I remember seeing the Hitler scene in the theater and going "Oh Sh--" when Hitler took the book and the the collective sigh of relief in the audience. Glad to see the empty holster mentioned, too. That was great.
I know, too, it's not "best scenes" but one of my favorites is when he and Marion are recovering on the 'pirate' vessel and she accidentally clocks him and then tends to his wounds. "Dammit, Indy, where doesn't it hurt?!" and he holds up his elbow and goes "Here!" and then realizes the more places he names, the more kisses he gets...
May 21st, 2008, 04:23 AM
ah, classic moments every one, and most of them hillarious
May 21st, 2008, 06:08 PM
Harrison Ford is immortal.
May 21st, 2008, 09:58 PM
One that was great was when Sean Connery wrestles with a random Nazi in the WW1(?) area tank. And squirts the guy in the face with is pen and blinds the guy.
But I love when Hitler signs the note book his men where looking for.
May 22nd, 2008, 03:30 AM
Well, I just saw the new movie, and the Top Ten list remains unchanged. :\
By the way RaNkeri, I'm glad you mentioned the nod to that sword fighter moment in Temple of Doom. I meant to make a reference to it in the piece, but I ended up forgetting about it when I was writing that section. So I'm glad someone mentioned it, because it was truly a great moment!
May 22nd, 2008, 04:53 AM
Great list. My favourite moment is definitely when he joins the mourners in Last Crusade. Funny stuff.
May 22nd, 2008, 04:54 AM
Gutted to hear the list remains unchanged!
May 22nd, 2008, 10:05 AM
Kinda expected, though I'd be lying if I said some of the new scenes didn't wow me.
May 22nd, 2008, 04:22 PM
I'm glad the Hitler moment was included. I was like 'oh sh--- haha' when I first saw it.

Knowing the movie didn't change the list makes my dicision final, i'm not seeing the new movie until the dvd comes out because i'm a cheapo. The skewer scene has to my favorite, it was unexpected.
May 22nd, 2008, 10:01 PM
It's not an Indy moment, but I liked the scene in Crusade where the Imam gave the Nazis aid in permission for a sweet roadster. "You shall have men, camels, supplies, equipment... And Tanks."

After watching Raiders this past weekend, I was actually thinking about sending you a "10 things I like about Raiders", but then I thought better of it. One of the things on my list was that Alfred Molina was in it. I was going to call that entry "Dr. Octopus double-crosses Indy for the Idol.
Oh well, I'll leave the 10 things list to the pros.
May 23rd, 2008, 07:14 PM
I liked the bit of (probably edited) choreographed fighting in ToD between the prince and Short Round juxtaposed with Indy and .... was it big thugee dude? Anyway it was nicely done.
It probably doesn't make your top ten, Proto, but I liked it. :\
May 26th, 2008, 10:05 PM
Never seen any of them, but I'm meaning to; Indy looks bad ass :D
May 26th, 2008, 11:33 PM
Good ol' Hitler: "He's as clumsy as he is stupid"
Found out Indy's horse in crusade was Rambo's horse in III.
gotta agree with #1 moment, specially since Ford winged it.
Don't blame Lucas for Jarjar, his adopted kid was responsible for that crapper.
Blame Lucas for listening to poor advisors. and the kid was the jedi on the platform w/ bail in sith.
sure lucas should learn to say no, but that might've stopped Indy from comin back.
May 26th, 2008, 11:51 PM
They're all kickass. The skewer through the stomach would rank higher than the bridge cutting in my book, but that's nitpicky. The shooting of the swordsman in Raiders is easily #1.
And I blame Lucas for Jar Jar. Part of the reason kids don't write movies is because they're fucking stupid.
May 29th, 2008, 01:30 AM
Oh, man. Did this ever bring back memories. My favorite Indy moment: "Chilled monkey's brains, Dr. Jones." The most memorable dinner party ever.
Jun 6th, 2008, 01:36 AM
"No time fo' love, doctah Jones!"
Jun 10th, 2008, 04:11 PM
I'm surprised the "father using umbrella to kill guy with seagulls" moment didn't make the list, it's one of the most unexpected things I've ever seen in a movie.
Jun 10th, 2008, 05:15 PM
And it's truly awesome, one of the best moments in the series, no doubt. But it's not something Indy did, it was his father. If I'd called it "Dr. Jones's Ten Finest Moments" I could have cheated and used that one, but I didn't.
Jun 10th, 2008, 06:11 PM
Yeah, I love that part because it's one of the very few times when Jones Senior is not only comedic relief but saves Indy when it looks like they're going to die. I'd also like to add that Sean Connery retiring tore a hole through my heart, as he was one of the great actors of our age.
Mar 22nd, 2011, 12:19 AM
One of my favorite moments that didnt make it is the guy in TOD getting his heart ripped out.But the swords man getting shot will always be numero uno in my book.
