Wandering around the supermarket with my mother last weekend, I once again came across the Indiana Jones Quadrilogy, neatly packaged into a single, $20, 4 in 1 case. I’ve seen this many times before and have often stopped to considered purchasing it because, I’ll be honest, I don’t remember too much about the films; apart from the fact that I saw them one long ago day, way back in my childhood. I’ve never been a Harrison Ford fan to speak of, although that opinion has slowly begun to shift since I re-watched the original Star Wars movies earlier this year – specifically Empire Strikes Back – and it occurred to me that in his younger years there really was something to be said for Harrison Ford. In any case, this past weekend, I finally caved into temptation and walked out of Coles with that 4 in 1 multipack in my hot little hand. As a fun exercise, I thought I would re-watch all 4 movies (yes, even the last one, which I have seen and which I know is still probably going to be lame) and then review them for you here. As my memories are so dim, it will almost be like I am coming to the original films for the first time. Won’t that be exciting? Of course it will!
In any case, if you have Raiders of the Lost Ark collecting dust in you DVD collection, maybe you would like to pull it out and watch along with me on this fine Friday eve. I’ll report back on Monday with my thoughts and perhaps we can have an enjoyable chat about it?
