"For nearly three thousand years man has been searching for the lost ark. It's not something to be taken lightly. No one knows its secrets. It's like nothing you've ever gone after before."

As a child I wanted to be Indiana Jones, going off on some adventure, saving the day from evil forces. Back then I preferred Temple of Doom but having re-watched the series as an adult, nothing can beat Raiders of the Lost Ark in terms of story, humor, score and outrageous stunts.

From the opening sequence of the Paramount logo turning into an actual mountain to the closing credits,... read more

George Lucas.
Steven Spielberg.
Harrison Ford.
A trio of names that entered the lexicon of sci-fi cinema with their earlier star-faring efforts.
Now, for this film, all three team up for the first time ever, but instead of a tale that took place a long time ago, in a distant galaxy far far away, this time it's not that long ago, & much more down to Earth. This modern ta... read more

"Steven Spielberg's first film of the 80s and one of his greatest in an astonishing canon, 'Raiders of the Lost Ark' is the first instalment in the legendary Indiana Jones chronicles which spawned one of cinema's great trilogies (followed by a belated fourth instalment in 2008 which fans of the series like to pretend never happened). A tribute to the adventure film serials of the 30s and 40s, 'Raiders of the Lost Ark' follows archaeologist and teacher Indy on his quest to find the Ark of the Cove"

"Re-watch - Sept. 27th Drafthouse spent September celebrating the films of Spielberg, which I pretty much didn't care about...but when I heard they were screening this trilogy together for only $25 I decided I was going. I called up my dad to see if he was down to go too, which he was, and so we got to spend a great father-son outing watching two great movies and a really good one.
