Thoughts on every movie I've ever seen.

Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981)

Directed by Steven Spielberg

Starring Harrison Ford, Karen Allen, Paul Freeman, John Rhys-Davies


Good characters, action, and story. Great fantasy which sets a great mood. Seeing it on the big screen makes a huge difference. Awesome punching sound!

Remarkably polished for 1981. It even stands up well today. This might have been the first film to conquer the low-quality film, bad color, messy sound, and sloppy editing deficiencies of the 60’s and 70’s.

Ford is perfect.
