: : : : BTW, I'm not heedlessly defending anything Indy, I'm just curious. However, I think some much cornier scenes can be found in TOD -- "Wake up, Dr. Jones!" for one, and the whole bit about the mararajah (sp?) knowing about the left tunnel... but like you said, outweighed by the rest.
: : : Hi!
: : : I just want to ask; whats corny about the Maharajah knowing about the
: : : left tunnel????? It is his castle, and he should know
: : : the way out. Like if the British attack, I'm sure Mola Ram wants the
: : : Maharaja to escape so he can keep his cover, so just why wouldn't
: : : he tell the kid????? But the whole thing with the ripping out the
: : : guys heart and him living and then it bursting into flame was a bit corny,
: : : although it also added a nice touch, I think.
: : : ***Indy Anna Jones***
: : So I *do* know how to spell maharajah! Wonderful!
: : To address the point, you're right, it's not that serious, but still, how'd the prince know they were taking a mine shaft out? Besides, I don't think the prince would know any exit other than the way into the palace, where he led the captured children. But that's a plot hole, not a corn element. I guess I'm just nitpicking.
: : You know, I just love this pattern. "the guy" talks about a corny element. I reply, asking what's corny about it, and state something else corny. Indy Anna replies to me, asking what's corny about the scene I mentioned, but in turn describes a scene *she* found corny. Then Stephen replies, asking what's corny about Indy Anna's offering. It's a chain of corn! Oh, never mind.
: : Hmm. I wonder if my logo works... I hope so, I need to spruce up my messages a wee bit...
: I think the Maharajah has a right to know whats happening under his
: kingdom... As long as he was under the spell on the Blood of Kali, why
: wouldn't he know? That way, he wouldn't stumble into the shaft and
: get cut in two by a beam or something. LOL! Then Mola Ram has no
: cover... a new Maharajah would take the throne and then Mola'd have to
: make him drink the blood and stuff... Yum yum! LOL!
: BTW: nice logo! LOL! But, if you don't mind me asking: whats it
: supposed to be? Looks like a chhet infront of a dimond... Correct?
: Probably not. LOL! Oh, hey, I just got back from Starship Troopers;
: now THERES a good movie (even if if is slightly gorey! LOL)!

: Hey, got new pics on my page!
Wow! You snuck to Star Wars pics on an Indiana Jones board! Very interesting!
