Film Review
------------------
As with George Lucas's other movie franchise, there's a vein of mysticism running through the Indiana Jones Trilogy. Watching all three back-to-back it's possible to unravel the chronology and chart the spiritual journey of our hero: the idealistic Young Indy ("It belongs in a museum", implores River Phoenix in the opening escapade of The Last Crusade) grows up to become a cynical fortune-hunter seen trading archaeological treasures with Chinese gangsters at club "Obi-Wan" in The Temple of Doom. From there we follow his path to redemption via three mystical religious objects: respectively Hindu (the Shankara stones in Temple of Doom), Jewish (the Ark of the Covenant in Raiders Of The Lost Ark), and Christian (the Holy Grail itself in Last Crusade).

But that's just the subtext. Along the way, this knight-errant archaeologist undertakes improbable adventures (featuring spiders, snakes, rats, insects and Nazis galore), rescues damsels in distress (even when they really don't want to be rescued, such as Kate Capshaw in Temple of Doom), and still finds time to bond with his dad (Sean Connery, in one of cinema's great cameo roles as Dr Jones Sr.).

Steven Spielberg revels in Lucas's recreation of 1930s cliff-hanger serials, infusing every scene with kinetic energy and infectious enthusiasm and creating any number of iconic sequences that have become touchstones of cinematic history. Director and producer are more than ably assisted by regular composer John Williams, whose swashbuckling Korngold-inspired "Raiders" theme casts Harrison Ford as a modern-day Errol Flynn. This trilogy plays like a self-contained whole that leaves nothing wanting: from the witty dialogue and breathtaking action choreography to the near-perfect casting, this is popular movie-making at its very peak. --Mark Walker

Excellent price and I thought the Crystal Skull was pants anyway.
#3
this is really hot.as far as I know the first 3 movies are not released on Bluray yet so DVD is the best bet.they are selling the adventure pack (4 movies) on dvd for at least £13.so £2 for 3 movies is a steal.
will visit Whsmith tomorrow.

Do you think people were expecting too much? We were all much younger when we saw the original Indy films and so I think nostalgia sometimes comes into it. :-)

Why is this hot? 240 degrees so far for a business that has not sold DVDs for over 12m

Crystal Skull wasn't as bad as people make out, but it is the worst in the series. The fridge bit, however, was awful though.

That's what I think. I actually wasn't born when the Indy films (the first 3) were originally out but I did watch them at a young age and I didn't expect too much because they couldn't have made it in the exact style as the first 3 without critics and fans saying they were ripping off other things that had come in the 19 year gap like Tomb Raider or Uncharted or other films/tv shows/games.

I was pleased with the 4th and can't wait for the next one!

the second one is the best (Temple Of Doom)
the first (Riders Of The Lost Ark) is the second best.
the third (Last Crusade) and forth (Chrystal Skull) are in par.
Christal Skull is actually great movie.people seem to be unable to understand and appreciate the fact that the forth one was made over a decade after the rest,with main actor in his sixties..it was impossible to imagine it will even happen.

You have the order spot on here. Temple Of Doom was always my favourite by a country mile.

still think Short Round was the Jar Jar Binks of the Indiana Jones and the temple of doom film, totally unnecessary and annoying, and anyone who complains about the fridge bit .... have you forgotten the jumping out of a plane on a life raft incident in temple of doom.. come on

Maybe I'm wrong, but I think there's probably more chance of surviving the plane/life raft incident than there is of surviving a nuclear blast by hiding inside a fridge.

Ok, so fridge aside, how about the overall poor (and overused) CGI - or the fact that it all boiled down to flippin' aliens?!
#25
Heat added btw :D The exclusion of Crystal Skull makes this a definite winner!
#26
Bargain, glad it doesn't come with the 4th which was tripe!

Short Round was awesome. No time for love Doctor Jones! [sic]

The raft bit was impossible too, but it seemed less farfetched due to the simplicity of the stunt.

yes because supernatural evil beings coming from the ark was quite realistic in ROTLA admittedly the fourth one is a bit of a letdown considering but its still enjoyable in many places,for me the order of the quality of the films is the order in which they were released,I used to think crusade was better than temple until i rewatched it.
