Indyfans and the Quest for Fortune and Glory

NR
2.5 out of 5 stars (24) IMDb 5.3/10

INDYFANS AND THE QUEST FOR FORTUNE AND GLORY is a heart-warming celebration of the cultural phenomenon created by the man with the fedora. Director, Brandon Kleyla ("Children of the Corn" and "Gods and Monsters"), travels the country in this fun-filled look at the "fans" of INDIANA JONES and how they've been affected by the legacy he's left behind. Indy's stunt-double, Vic Armstrong, talks about creating the most memorable stuns in film history and RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK costume designer, Deborah Nadoolman-Landis, shares her memories about creating one of the most recognizable film characters ever! Rediscover "your adventures" as you laugh, and maybe cry, while enjoying this one of a kind fan-umentary.

The film starts out decently enough with a trip to one of the filming locations of Crystal Skull. The movie quickly uses up its good material though as it leans heavily on the creators of the Disneyland Indy ride and wandering booth babes to fill time. For something with 'Fans' in the title, I thought it would be more about the fans. Unlike Star Wars, Star Trek, and Harry Potter, there isn't an obvious obsessive fan base to document. They did find two or three fans to focus on (an artist who repeatedly depicts Indy's adventures and an elderly lady whose hobby is riding the Disney Indy ride), but most of the material is about the Disney ride, the opening of the Lego Indy attraction, the people who produced a high-end statue, and interviews with a few of the crew members from the film. The people the booth babes hold mics to, either at Comicon or on the street, are obviously fans, but not particularly avid fans. Around half way through the film, I realized that they already had a poster made for the documentary which they were hanging behind their interviewees. When the movie ran out of material around minute 69 or so, it covered its own rough cut premiere of the first hour of footage. The film has enough interest to keep it above two stars, but I can't recommend spending $20 to own it.

If you've seen documentaries about fandom -- "Star Trek" and "The Lord of the Rings" come immediately to mind -- you know how low the bar is set when it comes to producing a documentary about specific fandoms. In "Trekkies," released in 1997, pokes fun at "Star Trek" fans, beginning with its pejorative title. ("Star Trek" fans prefer to be called Trekkers, to begin with; and, no, they all don't run around in the real world wearing Starfleet uniforms when working their real jobs or appearing for jury duty, as does Barbara Adams, who lives the fantasy of being a Commanding Officer in Starfleet. (Aside: Why is it that civilians ALWAYS love to dress up in military uniforms with high rank, instead of spending time serving their country?)

Then there's "Ringers," a laughable bad, fixated-in-the-sixties documentary that, unless you knew better, was a parody, though those behind it had professed, at least in the beginning, to be taking a serious look at Tolkien fandom, in the wake of the Peter Jackson film adaptation of "The Lord of the Rings."

And so we come to "Indyfans," which is a breath of fresh air, as it comes from the passion of film director Brandon Kleyla, a die-hard Indy fan, who serves double duty in this documentary as the narrator.

"Indyfans" is, as my review heading suggests, BY, TO, and FOR the Indiana Jones fan. If you have absolutely no interest whatsoever in Indiana Jones, this documentary, which runs 78 minutes, is not for you. But if you have any interest whatsoever in the Indiana Jones phenomenon -- an archetypal character that burst on the film scene in 1981 -- you will find much to like with this honest and unabashed, extended appreciation of everybody's favorite archaeologist.

This is probably my fault for not paying closer attention. This was not the movie I intended to purchase. Unfortunately, its purchased. I really wish Amazon would tag these "Documentary" style movies somewhere else.

Not what I expected based on the title. Very disappointing and we stopped watching it. We would have preferred to save the money.

this is a really well made documentary about indiana jones fans by indiana jones fans.you can really tell that the director is a huge fan of the indiana jones series.i will be honest and say the first half of the dvd is a little bit better than the second and i wished about 10 minutes would have been edited off and about 10 minutes of the deleted scenes put back in but it is all there with the deleted scenes being available on the disc anyway.my hats off to the makers of this movie and i really enjoyed this dvd and recomend it to all indiana jones fans.

My son was trying to watch the real movie and rented this instead. Amazon you should be ashamed that you have this junk listed with almost the same name as the original. I want my money back.

I don't even know what I watched...how did anyone get funding to make and produce garbage like this, and why would AMAZON choose to carry it (do they screen these things first?).

Very disappointed. A complete waste of time could not finish watching. It hard sometime to write a review. I am a great Indyfan but not this one.
