William’s Favorite 80’s Movies – RANKED
Happy 40th Anniversary Raiders of the Lost Ark!!!!
This was THE movie that should've been nominated and should have won over Ordinary People in which I have not seen still.
Raiders of the Lost Ark is a 40-year-old achievement in movie-making and Steven Spielberg's 6th motion picture will still prove why he is one of the greatest directors of all time. The first entry in Indiana Jones' wild adventure will continue to age well like fine wine and will forever be the quintessential adventure film that every film buff and film-goer needs to see once in their life. Harrison Ford is still Legendary as the witty and adventurous Indiana Jones and his performance is still top tier in my book. The iconic score from John Williams is still legendary. I cannot wait to see what James Mangold will bring us to the table once Indiana Jones 5 comes out. With two excellent films being Logan and Ford v Ferrari under his belt, I still have a good amount of hope that he will make Indy's 5th adventure be superior than his 4th in which involved aliens for some odd reason.
Thank you Raiders of the Lost Ark for not only giving us the adventure film that will go down in history as one of the greatest ever, but you will continue to entertain movie-goers including myself for many generations to come!!!!
