Raiders of the Lost Ark

Raiders of the Lost Ark ★★★★½

i am here today to admit that ive only seen this all the way through once before, and even then, i do not remember it well. but i can confirm this does slap.

the thematic music (march, marion’s) here is to die for, as expected, but the score overall leaves a lot to be desired imo. ofc i wouldnt be saying this if it were anyone other than williams, who’s proven himself to be a crazy good action cue guy. lots of odd moments of string riffing that feels more at home in a space opera fantasy than here in an action-adventure romp.
