Raiders of the Lost Ark

I figured I’d be taking a longer break after finishing my 1990 movie marathon, but I’ve been itching to get going on 1981, and this Saturday morning, Raiders of the Lost Ark felt like a perfect way to start it. I think I can say that this is probably my favorite film of all time, or at least my favorite action/adventure film. Every single time I watch it I still enjoy it immensely, and I can barely find any faults in it. I also just love this setting so damn much, and that’s why I’m pretty bummed that the next Indiana Jones film they’re making is again going to star Harrison Ford as Indy, since I imagine the setting will be something like the 70s so that it makes sense with Ford/Indy’s age, and that’s not what I really want with this series. I want an old school adventures set in the 40s with the Nazis as the villains, and so that’s why I would much rather they do a reboot.
