Raiders of the Lost Ark

I watched that movie again the other day. What a fun ride. A preposterous plot (nazis! treasures! ghosts! serpents!) but who cares? It is good to go back to a day before George Lucas discovered it would be more profitable to sell plastic toys than writing a crazy story with his friend Steven Spielberg, before Harrison Ford decided he would be a serious actor (while at the same time wearing a ridiculous earring… Go figure). As far as I am concerned, this is the perfect holidays movie. And when I grow up, I want to be an archeologist.
