Raiders of the Lost Ark

Raiders of the Lost Ark ★★★★★

Bond film as adventure serial made by three men at the peak of their powers. And Karen Allen is amazing.

Probably my favourite film of all time and one that I never tire of watching. Effortless charm from Ford, great action sequences, over the top Nazi henchmen, slimy Frenchmen, a monkey, a hollowed out Nazi submarine Island and an insane finale that comes out of nowhere and features weird ghosts and exploding heads.

Probably the reason I have a lifelong interest in mysterious weirdness and my missus has blue eyes and dark hair. Sadly she doesn't have a mysterious artifact or run a bar in Nepal. That I Know of.
