The Rewind (1980’s) Raiders of the Lost Ark

Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981)

Genre- Action/Adventure

Director Stephen Spielberg

Story written by George Lucas

Starring- Harrison Ford, Karen Allen

This is another gem from the 1980’s. It is the first Indiana Jones movie about an archeologist who is hired to find the Ark of the Covenant before the Nazi’s.  It is one of the best adventure movies I’ve ever seen. Harrison Ford perfectly fit the character of Indiana Jones. Stephen Spielberg hasn’t always got it right, but more times than not I think he has been exceptional and this movie is one of them. The music, the acting, the setup of scenes are incredibly well done and thought out.  A lot has been said of George Lucas lately in the negative. I won’t really defend some of his more recent choices, but the man in the late 1970’s and through the 1980’s had some magical ideas. That can never be taken away from him.

Of the four Indiana Jones movies I believe this is my second favorite. I actually didn’t enjoy the movie when I was a teen, but as a grew older I grew to love the film.

What is your favorite Indiana Jones film?

What do you think of the idea to reboot the franchise?
