Raiders of the Lost Ark

Raiders of the Lost Ark ★★★★½

Prime Spielberg; I love it, you love it, we all love it. Something everyone’s going to be watching over and over again because it’s just so much fun. That opening sequence is one of the best ever made; Harrison Ford is Harrison Ford, the coolest man to ever live. Karen Allen is that perfect heroine, she’s like Grace Kelly in Rear Window

Also, I love how they introduce characters in this thing. Indy clearly has history with them but we’re not told that, and I can imagine Marvel has altered everyone’s brains to expect an origin story on every single character ever introduced. Quite refreshing! 
Crazy that it’s 40 years old. Won’t be able to get the theme tune out my head for weeks!
