Raiders of the Lost Ark

Raiders of the Lost Ark ★★★

I've seen bits before, I'm pretty sure I've seen basically the whole first 40 minutes and I remember not loving the little bits I watched but I thought if I watched the whole thing it would all come together and become the masterpiece and classic that it's heralded as.
Nah... I still didn't love it, it was a bit boring. Some cool and iconic moments don't get me wrong. But the bits sound them were tedious and by the time a cool bit came around I was really only half invested. There are some of the worst fight scenes I've ever seen too. Like when they're in Cairo and being chased just before she gets put in the basket she just starts repeatedly lightly tapping a man on the head with some sort of bedpan thing, it's ridiculous.
