Raiders of the Lost Ark

Raiders of the Lost Ark ★★★½

Task #10: a film with a famous theme song
I grew up with Indiana Jones in the background. Raiders of the Lost Ark is one of the many movies my dad would always be watching with me on the floor nearby playing with Star Wars Lego usually. I haven't seen this in what I think will be about 10 years. There's one scene that stuck with me though. Indy rising above the rocky desert on horseback chasing the Nazi vans while John Williams' magnificent theme blares. It's exciting, a moment of triumph that I'll never forget. It's Harrison Ford in his prime saying hey wait a minute we ain't done yet!

I'm really tired tonight so wasn't as into it as I should have been but there's no denying this classic is a fantastical adventure with spirit and charisma to spare. Also... Marion for president.

34/50
