five stars for squishing sound when he runs over that nazi guy
five stars for best chase scene ever
Bonus fact: Spielberg did not direct this sequence; he storyboarded it and gave it to the second-unit guy to do.
oh hell yeah

Surely there's a Turkish equivalent of this somewhere.
|Cap'n Profan!ty |
Nice, but why didn't the soldiers in the back figure out that they could just SHOOT THROUGH THE PARTITION
Wilhelm Scream at 5:53.

5 stars for not a minute of CG. Once upon a time, children, movies had people in them.
|Caminante Nocturno |
Oh yeah, that's why we all think whips are cool.

did that asshole throw the melon at the dog??
ya know, say what you want about Nazis but you can't deny they're pretty much the greatest villains ever.
Menudo con queso
The MacGyver clip earlier reminded me that East Germany was awesome simply because it kept Nazis (Nazi Commies!) alive as viable badguys for another 40 years.
Y'know, technically, Indy's the methed-out trucker road menace here while the Germans are the brave cops trying to protect the public. Um, ...stop brain now! Car off cliff pretty...
That was fun.
The sound designers won an Oscar for this film. One notable point was mixing a tiger's roar with the sound of the truck engine.
Hornung's role models in 1981:
You really have to admire those motorcycle guys' devotion to duty. They get run off the road and flipped into a river, and they immediately pick themselves up and try to get right back on. I would've just taken the rest of the day off.
I also admire Jones' suicidal bravado. "I'm going to steal a horse and jump right into a truck full of Nazis and hope that things work out for the best." What the fuck was he thinking?
Extra bonus fact: the original screenplay had the evil Nazi commander guy (who throws the melon) with a gatling-gun-arm, but obviously special effects at the time proved too annoying and time consuming to work with to make it work without being a huge pain in the ass.
This is all going to be CGI in the next movie =(
