Movie Monday

Two Sundays ago, I sat and watched Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark for the first time.

Hard to believe I've never seen this since the movie was released way back in 1981 when I was in junior high and going to the movies was (and still is) a teen thing to do. (Needless to say I wasn't the most typical teen.) Ironically, I have just discovered that this movie was released on my thirteenth birthday.

Anyway, the film is a result of George Lucas' desire to pay homage to the action heroes of the 1930 and 40s film serials.The title character is an archeology professor and goes in search of the Ark of the Covenant before the Nazi's get a hold of it. If you want a more detailed description of the plot, click here.

The film seemed more spoofy than maybe it should have if it were paying homage, and conversely it had some scenes where it was more graphic than either a spoof or a 1930s/1940s film should have been. For the last third of the movie, the heroine wore nothing more than a negligee. Ugh.

But a young Harrison Ford was very nice to watch.

I'm giving this classic a five out of ten on the movie reel rating system.

Have you seen the Indy films? Are you a fan or no?
