    I can’t believe the footage of the prank is out! For years I’ve wanted to see this! Sure, it’s not the greatest quality, but I’ll take what I can get!

    This was my first Indiana Jones film. While my favorite will always be Last Crusade, Temple of Doom was my first.

      Yeah, that prank is hilarious! Maybe one day we’ll get a remastered version of it. And yes, there are very vocal supporters of each film, and I’m sure at some point we will finish the circle and cover The Last Crusade. Thanks Jose! You the man! -Dion
