I can’t believe it’s taken this long for Screen Junkies to give the Indiana Jones franchise the Honest Trailers treatment. But I’m glad they finally got around to it.
I’m not a fan of the sequels that most people are. Maybe owing to the fact that nothing could live up to the first one. This video said it right. It is a perfect movie. It’s one of my top 10 desert island films. And I just got Shawshanked by it for the thousandth time a couple of weeks ago. I respect “Raiders” so much that I waited until my kids were the perfect age to be able to appreciate it before I expose them to it. And they love it as much as I do. Great hero. Great villains. One of the best female leads of all time. And when you see Karen Allen alongside the others like this, you respect her even more. I’ll never forgive Spielberg and Lucas for reanimating Indy’s rotting corpse for a fourth and now a fifth time. But at least they’ll never be able to take that first one away from me.
