Raiders of the Lost Ark

Raiders of the Lost Ark ★★★★

I really can't imagine anyone that would actively dislike or hate this movie. It's incredibly fun and very clearly stands the test of time as far as adventure movies go. I don't even have nostalgia attached to it. I must admit I actually did not ever watch a movie in this series until about 12 or 13 years ago when I was in college. So it's not a movie that shaped my experiences as a kid watching movies, but I still completely appreciate the awesome performances and amazing John Williams score.

I also watch this being fully aware that it's rated PG, but that is one HARD PG because there is more blood and death than I actually remembered. Even a little harsh swearing here and there. Totally in that weird grey zone back in the early to mid-80s before the PG-13 became necessary.
