I can't believe it's been years since I've seen this. But this afternoon I popped in the dvd and once more enjoyed a helluva ride with Indiana Jones in the first and absolute best film of the franchise...from back before it was a franchise. Yeah, there are some liberties taken and moments of really pushing the envelope of credibility, but after all these years this is still a solid, rollicking adventure deserving of classic status. A damned fine made-for-fun movie that can easily stand against today's cgi laden spectacles. I remember seeing this new at the University Theatre in Toronto in 1981---and it stills feels just as fresh and riotous as it was then.
