Time for some Friday nostalgia for Steven Spielberg fans: As first posted by Will McCrabb and then picked up by Reddit, here's a graphic picture of Belloq's exploding head from the final scene in "Raiders of the Lost Ark." The shot comes before Spielberg added some conciliatory visual effects to placate the Motion Picture Association Of America. (It worked: "Raiders" received a PG-rating from the board.) Watch the original scene above (the explosion happens at the 3:40 mark).
