Ok, I picked "other" (for Ice Storm), because "Indy" is only complete with Raider of the lost Ark, which would be a "R" movie :roll: :tongue:

Not with the retroactive, heathen renaming to Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark :-?

Be happy you don't. Best Picture Academy Award nominee E.T. (full title: E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial) had a 2002 rerelease with some changes (e.g., Greeto shoots first :roll:) some of which some people thought were feeble.

Dug up my response to a friend's email telling me about the changes:
A long time ago knarf wrote:At least none of his changes seem to be at the "Greedo shoots first" level. So far.

The no guns thing really got me thinking about future "changes" for Spielberg:

Brody throws a walkie-talkie against the oxygen tank to blow up the shark.

Indiana Jones pokes scimitar wielding guy in the eye with a walkie-talkie antenna after giving famous "I don't have time for this" look.

Muldoon trying to stop the Velociraptors with an incredible amount of feedback from his walkie-talkie (wait, that sounds more like a Tim Burton
movie).

And don't even get me started on "Saving Private Ryan"

But, on the plus side, maybe Spielberg could change "Hook" so it wouldn't suck.
