Critic Review - Chicago Reader

One would think that a collaboration between Steven Spielberg and George Lucas would produce something better than this giggly pastiche of a Republic serial...

Stop posting that, it's unbearably stupid and annoying. Let them vent their frustration. You post this on so many comment pages its just planing irritating.

Agreed. I get your point, Stunner, and agree with you sometimes, but you, like the minority rotten reviews, are starting to get rather annoying.

This review is bias. Apparently you're just jealous you didn't make this movie.

Everyone's entitled to their own opinion, but those who hate Indy MORBIDLY, rather than just disliking him or this movie not being "good or okay", barely count in the human factor.

your dick in erection is an epic fail, you moron. Everybody is entitled to their own opinion. So is Dave Kehr. I also found Raiders of the Los Ark quiet an unbearable film to watch. Just because it is an 80' film doesn't mean I will forgive it its flaws: bad pacing, terrible acting and poor script. It is a mediocre film 5 out of 10 seem generous to me.
On the other hand, I accept you and thousand liking the film. I even understand it, it is a film from our childhood and for many it represent the happiest moments of their lives. For me it's just a cheesy pile of shite, though. Deal with it as I deal with you liking it.

The only person on the planet who lets his bitterness about his horrible david spade haircut seep into his movie reviews. No one agrees with you, freakshow

Matt Ritchey

So, you were aware of the fact that they were PURPOSEFULLY making a Republic serial, right? That RAIDERS is a 1950s Republic serial made with modern techniques? And that it's one of - if not THE - most entertainming movies of all time? Just checking.

I was wondering if someone had brought this up the second I read the pull quote. If Dave was thinking this, then Steve apparently succeeded. A shame Dave sees this ultimately as a shortcoming.

This guy deserves an EPIC FAIL. Just for the love of god stop doing reviews.

You will never be respected as a critic.

This critic must be going out of his way to get attention.

How this movie gets a negative critic review, I really don't know. Maybe he was watching Temple and thought it was Raiders.

And look at this guy's pic. Is he a man-she? "It" really looks like a woman. I think "it" is a woman. This man is really a transgendered freak, which probably explains how he can dis one of the greatest adventure films ever made.

It's a 4 star movie for many good reasons.

I created an account here just to say that you are a total moron. I mean, come on!! It's Raiders of the Lost Ark!! It's the quintessential classic. So, what foreign film do you think is the greatest film ever made?

Pearce R.

You may be the worst crtic ever. I won't ever respect anything you write. Stick to your day job.

I just watched the first 10 minutes of this film. "Raiders of the Lost Ark", more like "retards of the lost ark".

The first 10 minutes were so boring, I just couldn't handle it. I shut off this B movie. What a bore.

Hope there are better movies coming out soon

The only comfort I get from your extreme prejudice, is the fact that nobody agrees with you.
