Which of the Indiana Jones movies is your favorite? Mine is Raiders. Waiting for the fifth one, if it will ever actually come...  ::)

They are all good. Raiders probably my favorite also especially the last scene. I also like Last Crusade a bit, especially the part Indy says "Venice !" right before he did the Nazi blonde. Temple of Doom is ruined by the annoying kid who can't even speak proper Chinese, it's like a stereotype gone wrong which is even more egregious than the stereotype itself. Crystal Skull is a bit too hardhitting and humorless to me, although I do enjoy watching Cate Blanchette.

Admittedly, it's been a long time but I gave up after the first two. I saw them on TV several years after they had come out and was rather disappointed because they were regarded fairly highly. When I saw the title of #4 I thought it was a parody...
Struck by the sounds before the sun,
I knew the night had gone.
The morning breeze like a bugle blew
Against the drums of dawn.

I have always liked Temple of Doom the most.

Spatial distortion is a serious problem deteriorating headphone listening.
Crossfeeders reduce spatial distortion and make the sound more natural
and less tiresome in headphone listening.

I do enjoy them all, but I'll cast my vote for The Last Crusade.
