Ever since I was a kid, I have always loved the Indiana Jones movies.
They are clean, brazen and filled with action and excitement. I watched Raiders of the Lost Ark with my dad and it mesmerized me. I loved the story line and the action scenes. Gone are the days where movies were clean enough for your kids to watch with you.
Being interested in biblical history, this first installment got my attention and I was hooked.
The Temple of Doom was also excellent in its own regard. There were some scenes that were a little hokie like you could question if they seemed real but overall the movie was great. The notion that people could be put under a spell was far-fetched but still well done.
The Last Crusade really was outstanding. Bringing Sean Connery in as Indy’s dad was a great move. The dynamics and way they played off each other was excellent.
If you have not seen any of them, I would recommend watching Raiders of the Lost Ark first and see why Harrison Ford was the heartthrob to so many women in the 80’s and 90’s.
