Indiana Jones 5 - James Mangold Directing - Summer 2023

So this morning my two girls (nearly 5 and nearly 6) were playing a game where if they fell off my legs they fell into the crocodiles (Not my idea. The nearly six year old started it). I know not much bothers them and I think I'm a fairly cool Dad (I know. Fuck off). I decided in my wisdom to show them the rope bridge scene in Temple of Doom. It's on Amazon Prime so was easy enough to access.

 

All was going well. Great hilarity at the end of the mine cart chase with Indy burning his feet, the torrent of water, Short Round falling through the rope bridge. No fucks given about the Thuggee dudes falling off the bridge into the jaws of the crocs...

 

But the moment that Mola Ram grabbed Indy by the tit and started doing the heart ripping incantation while hanging off the bridge they freaked out. I mean freaked out. Hiding behind me. Hands over the eyes. The whole shebang. They hadn't even seen the earlier scene with the heart ripping because I knew it would be too much for them. It was just the intensity of those few seconds that hit them. You forget about the stuff that bothered you as a kid. As an adult you brush off stuff like that. No wonder Temple of Doom was so problematic to the MPAA and BBFC back in 1984.

I watched temple of doom with my 8 year old and 2 year old the other day. Neither were bothered by it. The two year old because he essentially wasn’t actually watching it at any point and my eight year old just kept asking what the bugs were.

It was strange. They're fine now but those few seconds really freaked them out.

Oh no some neckbeards are upset because of what they imagine a film will be like based on a photo, we’d better imagine what they might want instead and change the film so it’s like that.

Photos like this worry me. Is Harrison too old to even do the basic stuff like walking around and they’re having to CG his face a lot? Are they going to try to CG his face into a stunt performer just for stunts?. I can understand for shots where they’re de-ageing him, but this guy looks like he’s a stand in for current-age Harrison.

Could be for a multitude of reasons. Sometimes it's about actor availablity / scheduling etc.  Logan had a CGI Jackman in random driving around shots.

Apparently, not sure if it's a spoiler as such but I'll put it in tags anyway,

Hmm a well known Luke Skywalker quote comes to mind now unfortunately.

I just watched Knight And Day and thought the car chase was brilliantly filmed. I watched it on my tablet on blu ray quality and didn't notice any obvious cgi. Watching it on youtube now in low quality not being as immersed 30 minutes into the film as I was, more cgi perhaps stands out but i still think it's great and I'm confident Mangold will do a good job of this new Indiana Jones film just from an action perspective with more done practically or more invisible cgi than what Spielberg managed with Crystal Skull.

 

here's the scene

 

 

it's shots at like 3 minutes, the panning across to show Diaz's reaction from inside the car that's a bit more than the norm.

 

reminds me of this great shot at 39 seconds here:
