Raiders of the Lost Ark

Raiders of the Lost Ark ★★★★★

This Indiana Jones movie is probably my favorite and maybe even the best, big budget fun adventure movie ever made. The character of Indiana Jones is an all time character throughout movie history and it is solely because of this film. Harrison Ford is picture perfect casting as Indy, I think others could have played Han Solo, but I think only Ford could have played Indy. The performance and character of Marion Ravenwood is also slept on. I don't think this movie is as good as it is without her, just look at the sequels. This movie on top of being good, is just so much fun too. The adventure part of it is fun, which is what I think a lot of other movies like this lack. When I say that I mean more of, you completely buy into this characters journey and what they are after. National Treasure is a fun movie, but it lacks the covenant. Lost City of Z is a good movie, but it lacks the fun of this. This just has everything that adds up to make a perfect equation for one of the greatest blockbusters ever made.
