75. Raiders of the Lost Ark

               Indiana Jones. One of the most Iconic movie characters of all time.   Another movie that I don’t even know where to begin. In case you are a relic somewhere unfound yet you have probably known and love the Indiana Jones already but just in case you are that relic……
                Indiana Jones, played by Harrison Ford, is an archeological professor and part time historical tracker downer of artifacts (real title). In this particular journey Indy is trying to hunt down the Ark. Not from Noah but from The Covenant.  All the time he is trying to hunt this down the Nazi’s are also racing him to it.  What happens will, LITERALLY, melt your face off.  The movie is so awesome.
        Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark is the brain child of George Lucas and Steven Speilberg who want to make a homage to the great adventure movies they loved as children. They succeeded in making one of the greatest and most beloved movie franchises and heroes of all time.  Oddly enough Lucas didn’t want Ford at first in the role because he was already so iconic as Han Solo. Good thing he let Harrison go after those little artifacts!

Final Verdict:  Yes . Worth owning.


  1. Love me some Indiana Jones!!! Dr. Jones! Dr. Jones! Ok I realize that is from the next movie but it's still great.

  2. This is one Epic Movie. Love it

  3. The most awesome movie ever made! With Harrison Ford! And a story of Biblical proportions! Must Own and watch 1x a least!
