Raiders of the Lost Ark

Raiders of the Lost Ark ★★★★★

LOL, did I rate this four stars before? This is easily a five-star flick.

I re-watched this after watching Chris Stuckmann's recent review of the Indiana Jones movies. He made such a great case for this being one of the best action-adventure movies ever that I had to revisit it. Such an enthralling experience. The stuntwork is second to none. And yeah, Harrison Ford as Indy as a total smokeshow. Goddamn.

And in case someone in particular is reading this: Yes, I should be watching my Criterion movies - but I watched one and I needed a palate cleanser mmmKay? Am I allowed? Am I allowed to watch a classic movie made by two of the best filmmakers ever? Thank you in advance for your understanding. (This isn't a Marvel feature at least).
