    80's Par Excellence!

    |
    Posted .

    Back in the day my Mother & I went to a Sunday matinee, a film called "Raiders Of The Lost Ark" both of us were not expecting much, I knew Harrison Ford was in it from "Star Wars" fame other than that I knew very little about the premise. To our surprise we were about to take a nail biting on the edge of your seat adventure the likes we had never seen & after the film we both agreed it was a great action & adventure film with style & a flair that was rare for its time in the decade that saw the death of the drive-in theater & an industry slowly leaving American shores in search of cheaper locales. What we saw was the culmination of 50 years since sound came about with Hollywood understanding & formulating great film making.. par excellence! Director Steven Spielberg really took the reins and directed one of his best films and it didn't hurt having George Lucas in the background ensuring the storyline stayed tight this was the best of the series because this is a film that did not rely on its FX or it's elaborate set pieces it had a real script that was engaging, full of energy and moved with a purpose without the need to side-plot due to lack of material it stayed on track from beginning to end. The sequels that came after showed sparks yet fell short to the superior original.. I know, that's what they all say yet in this case it is the undisputed truth that ROTLA is far superior to what came after, sequel after sequel that became FX extravaganza's with substandard scripts & actors that relied more & more on set piece after set piece with plots that were not on par with the original. Video - Very good Blu-ray image but not great.. Blacks are not inky and at times look dark gray. Flesh tones look unnatural at times with an orange tinge yet in daylight everything looks natural. Not the type of video you will say is demo material but it looks darn nice and it appears the grain is intact with no filtering or digital manipulating yet you will see very little film damage it's a clean presentation. Sound - Very strong soundtrack in DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 does this great film justice A very well rounded aural experience is to be had with nice rear field channel usage, when the action begins you will be immersed in sound. I stayed away from the film series set since I feel the others do not even come close to this highly original film, they were just riding off the fame of a truly great production.. a moment in American film making that will never come again!.... I highly recommend this Blu-ray! 5 star film...3 1/2 star Blu-ray

    One of the Greatest Adventure Movies Ever Filmed

    |
    Posted .

    Director Steven Spielberg reinvented the action genre in 1981 with Raiders of the Lost Ark: a fun adventure the whole family can enjoy. Endless jokes and crafty set pieces lead you on a journey around the world. Raiders of the Lost Ark was written with a sarcastic and clever tone by Lawrence Kasdan. Spielberg makes good use of miniatures, practical effects, special effects, close ups, wide shots, and tracking panning shots throughout Raiders. You will be hard pressed to find a more fast-paced adventure film than Raiders of the Lost Ark. John Williams composed perhaps the most uplifting score of his career: you are swept off your feet when you hear the Indiana Jones theme kick in. The music accompanies the tense moments and thrilling action sequences alike with an apt sonic swirl. I love the Indiana Jones soundtrack to this day. Harrison Ford is so likable and relatable as the bumbling yet intelligent Indiana Jones. You believe he can fight with some prowess, while also believing in his archaeological talents. Likewise, Karen Allen is deft and cool as Marion Ravenwood, Indiana Jones' love interest and romantic foil. Allen is excellent as adventurer, rough house fighter, as well as the romantic leading lady. She is funny and sweet, while always giving Raiders of the Lost Ark some much appreciated verbal thrashing. I think Karen Allen was well suited as Indiana's opposite. In conclusion, Raiders of the Lost Ark holds up today with a swift adventure feel. You always believe in Indiana Jones from his lectures, to his home, to his action sequences. It is as much fun as when I first saw it in the theater.

    This is the best Indiana Jones of them all

    |
    Posted .

    Temple of Doom? Boring by comparison once you get past the opening scene. Last Crusade? Great performances but not as memorable as it was politicized all throughout which distracted from the raw story telling. Crystal Skull? What's that?! Har har. No, but seriously, it was a much needed update but it just went too "out there" if you know what I mean. Raiders has the action, the Romance and leaves out all of the more complex elements which are really just a distraction for this kind of stuff. It is raw and compelling story telling. Sadly though, the copy Best Buy sells has an irredeemable digital copy so I returned mine. If you want digital, look elsewhere.

    A Must Have Classic

    Posted .

    Steven Spielberg, Harrison Ford and George Lucas! It doesn't get any better than this. A throwback to the Hollywood Serials of the 1930's 40's and 50's when every local small town theater offered up the latest Saturday afternoon serial featuring the undaunted hero left in a life threatening perilous ending. How many times can Indie escape? No need to come back next week. It's all right here. This film is a great addition to any collection.

    The Best Adventure Film Ever! Hands Down!

    |
    Posted .

    While it may have been the role of Hans Solo in `Star Wars' that planted the name of Harrison Ford within the collective consciousness of the American (and world for that matter) public, it was his portrayal of the adventurous Indiana Jones in the '81 blockbuster `Raiders of the Lost Ark' that made him the iconic film legend he is today. The first of three epic adventures, `Raiders of the Lost Ark' is in my estimation the best of the series so far (a fourth is now in production so who knows). If this is your genre of entertainment you have found your pot-of-gold. Amazing special effects, superb cast, an unforgettable soundtrack and a script and storyline overflowing with clever, quotable dialogue and heavy supernatural undertones that are absolutely mesmerizing. Simply the "Best of the Best!

    The best. Ever.

    Posted .

    I don't have fond memories of Indiana Jones from my childhood. I watched the films, liked them, but for me, Star Wars and Jurassic Park were what ruled the roost. With a couple of decades and a fresh perspective, I found a new enjoyment for the series. I've also realized just how integral Harrison Ford was to the best era for film (Late seventies to late eighties, Star Wars, Blade Runner, Indiana Jones...) I've now gotten to the point where I watch the Indi trilogy a few times a year and find myself enthralled by just how great the journey is. Ford's cocky attitude perfectly makes Indiana Jones a character you have to cheer for. The Raider's blu-ray is fantastic, and although it doesn't have all of the supplemental material that the set has, it is still worth every penny.

    The original and still the best

    |
    Posted .

    The first Indiana Jones movie, Raiders of the Lost Ark, is still as exciting as the first time I viewed it more than 35 years ago. As an updated adventure serial, with its roots in the early Flash Gordon movie shorts, it is smart, witty and just plain fun. I highly recommend it to everyone. Kids love it. And it’s capable of making adults kids again for at least a couple of hours.

    One of the Two Best Indiana Jones Movies

    |
    Posted .

    This is my second favorite indiana Jones movies in the series. The First tthe raiders of the Lost Ark. II like these two movis because ljust like the the National Treasure movies, they center around historical and mythoogical objects tied to our own histories. In this case my relious history. The movie has great special effecta and prodution, a great treasure hunt of going from one riddle to another to lead to the "spot marked X" The final scense re emotion and warm and respectful to a our relious history. The sound track scores are moving and appropriate.

    Good movie, digital code expired

    Great Movie, only disappointment is the digital code. It expired years ago and it's for only itunes. I contacted Paramount about getting a new code. Gave the necessary info and images for proof they asked for and got their approval. After all this they told me it will only be for itunes and will not help me any further. I bought this mainly for the digital copy to put on VUDU. I was quite disappointed and would return it, if not opened to.

    Professor of Archeology Jones works on the side for the government recovering important relics of antiquity. When word leaks that the WWII Germans are seeking the Lost Ark of the Covenant the good Dr. Jones literally swings into action to stop them. The best of the franchise.

    The best of the series and all-time great film.

    What can one say about "Raiders of the Lost Ark" that hasn't been written about before? Nothing really. I just happen to think it's one of the great action/adventure films of all-time. It's Saturday at the movies in it's purest form. Great characters..(Harrison Ford's best role by far)..great filming work, directing and story. It still holds up and is a timeless adventure. On Blu-Ray the great production is even more vivid as is the sound. This is a must own movie for any real collector.

    Classic of our time

    First things first. Great picture and sound for this "older" movie. Worth the blu-ray version. Picture is clear and colors look great. Now to the fun part. This is a great movie. Clear heroes and villains. Fantastic action. And the acting is perfectly done. Harrison Ford is one of the greatest actors of our time for his ability to take Indiana Jones and make him a believable character. He is always fun to watch on screen. If you haven't seen this movie in awhile, check it out.

    Feels like being in an 80's movie theater

    |
    Posted .

    I'll admit. I never saw this movie in theaters. But I remember the experience. Unlike a lot of other restorations, this doesn't try to make it look like it was shot on a digital 4K camera. There are no ultra-saturated, hyper-realistic colors here. Yes, they clean up the grain, but the color timing still looks true to 1980's film stock. It sounds great - as anything with John Williams' music does. Overall, I'm impressed and any time I put in the Blu-Ray I get a certain nostalgia for projected film (until I remember the grain, scratches and flicker).
