Raiders of the Lost Ark

Raiders of the Lost Ark ★★★★★

I waited for two excruciating weeks for my limited edition Blu-Ray boxset of " Indiana Jones: The Complete Adventures" to arrive in the mail. Yesterday it came, but I didn't have time to watch it. Today, however... it was time.

I'll be going through these films in the coming weeks, whenever my Horror-project-schedule allows it. I'll probably write a lot about some of them, particularly the 4th one which I haven't seen since it was in theaters when I loved it, but this one? Why even bother.

Everything worth saying about this movie has already been said. It's a masterpiece; an entertaining rollercoaster of action, suspense, laughs, horrors, villains, heroes and excellent storytelling. It is, to me, an excellent example of everything movies should, and could, be.

Quite frankly it's a masterpiece, and I can't wait to see the three next.
