Any film can be a homage to a genre from the past. It takes excellence on every side of the field to create a new entity which is so clearly fresh and enthralling. Mixing their passions for the serial classics which influenced them greatly in their formative years, Steven Spielberg, Philip Kaufman and George Lucas deliver a ceaselessly exciting adventure movie. An undeniable classic, Raiders is good old action/adventure entertainment at a fine crossroads between simple and complex. Trouble and mystery rests wherever Indy goes. From jungle Peru to snow-capped Nepal through the Egyptian sands to the middle of the Aegean Sea. Classic entertainment and cinema.

This is a straight up fun adventure movie. Absolutely entertaining. I love watching it as much now as I did when I was a kid and it first came out

Fanciful orchestration.

A great, timeless adventure-fantasy! This is charming, witty, clever, suspenseful, but also full of cliches and old tropes. The result is great escapist entertainment.

Beautiful movie. Pity Hollywood hasn't learnt how to make good movies yet by learning from this perfection. Maybe Hollywood will learn in some future millennium and stop spewing out so much junk.

I think for a lot of people, Raiders is their favourite (x) movie. Be that their favourite adventure movie, favourite '80s movie, favourite Spielberg movie, whatever. None of those ring true for me, but it is my favourite Indiana Jones movie. I was a mad fiend for Temple of Doom as a kid, and I've managed to make multiple teachers put the Last Crusade on in class, so I'm quite a fan of the franchise, but Raiders is the most enjoyable to me... I've never even seen Crystal Skull... So maybe it's dishonest to say I'm a fan of the franchise... I'm a fan of the trilogy!

My favorite film of all time!

Such a classic, even watching in 2017 this movie really kicks ass. The only slight annoyance was the fact that the music was almost identical to Star Wars.

Extremely well crafted comedy-action-adventure based on mid-20th century archetypes and steretypes.

Raiders of the lost ark is not a masterpiece, instead far from it, the acting sucks the green screen effects suck the dialogue suck A LOT SUCK. There is still plentiful creativity and action
September 4, 2017
A true classic - and I somehow didn't realize until a recent re-watch how many beats reminded me of Star Wars based on music, dialogue, characters, etc.

Grade: A+
