: Occasionally in movies (Indy's or not), there are scene where the actions and music and the whole shebang just stir me up and sometimes I break out into goosepimples, like during Draco's magnificent exit in "Dragonheart." With regards to Indy movies, the one that stirs me up the most is in "Last Crusade" when Indy pulls himself up from the tank after just missing the outcropping of rock, just after the driver is shot; remember that? Sheer determination in his eyes. Anyway, any scenes in which YOU feel this sensation? Even if not, what's YOUR favorite scene?
The part that always gets me is in "Temple of Doom", at the climax of the film on the rope bridge after it's been cut. Hanging obove certain death by a few pieces of fraying rope, Mola Ram and Indy struggle for the Sankara stones. The music builds. Indy begins reciting the Hindi script from the tapestry... and the satchel containing the stones bursts into flames! That one moment gets me every time.
