Growing up in the 1980s, it was hard to avoid L.B. Rayne. The soulful crooner was ubiquitous, popping up every summer to write a catchy pop song about the latest movie blockbuster. But his biggest hit was arguably "Indiana Jones," his impeccably rhymed tribute to Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, which came out... Okay, I'm just yanking your chain. The video is really the brainchild of Doogtoons founder Doug Bresler, who came up with the idea for a failed R&B singer with his brother Joe (who plays Rayne in the video) more than ten years ago. But the song is the perfect '80s pastiche, with cheesy rhymes and classic riffs in the vein of "Eye of the Tiger," and the visual elements -- Rayne jogging through the woods; a karate-kicking, violin-playing "Short Round" stand-in -- are wondrous to behold. Bresler promises more L.B. Rayne videos in the future, but for now, check out "Indiana Jones" after the jump.
It's surprising how few Easter movies there are. Yes, there are religious movies like The Passion of the Christ and The Greatest Story Ever Told, and a slew of direct-to-DVD cartoons, most of which not even a toddler at the peak of a sugar rush would find entertaining. But for a holiday so closely associated with inherently marketable rabbits and candy, you'd think there'd be more to choose from. Never fear: If you dig a bit deeper into your basket of treats, you can find some surprisingly Easter-relevant themes and scenes in some seriously non-Easter movies. Let's look beyond the half-melted chocolate shell to the surprising nuggets of goodness at the center, shall we?
