Movie Review - "Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark"

Movie review number19

This movie stars Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones, archaeology professor by day, Adventure man and saviour of democracy on his vacations!!  It's set in the 1930s around the time the Nazi party is in power in Germany.
 This story concerns a medallion that describes the location of the Arc of the Covenant which has been lost in history but the Nasty Nazi's are hunting for it so they can use the Arc's powers for bad stuff.
 This movie starts in a ramshackle bar in Nepal, and a drinking showdown between a local drunk and the American lady bar owner.  Who wins the drinking match and then tells everyone to leave because the bar's closed.  As she tidies up, Indiana Jones arrives asking about a Medallion that her father owned (and it's clear that the bar owner and Indy know each other and can't stand the sight of each other!)  She pretends she doesn't know what he's on about and tells him to bugger off, so he does.  She then pulls out the medallion on a chain from under her blouse, takes it off and hangs it near a lit candle in a bottle.
Then some Nasty Nazis arrive asking about the same medallion...... and threaten the bar owner and Indy comes to the rescue and a fight starts!!!!  The bottle with the lit candle that has now has the medallion on it falls over and starts a fire!!  OH NO!!!  One of the Nasty Nazi's sees the medallion and goes to grab it but because it's been heated by the fire, it burns him and he screams and drops it!  The Nasty Nazi's run away and Indy saves the woman and the bar owner.
Indy and the woman then go to Egypt to try and discover the Arc of the Covenant before the Nasty Nazi's get it, only to find the Nasty Nazi's have found the location..... but are digging in the wrong place!!  Indy discovers the "right" place (infested with snakes which he's totally phobic about!), finds the arc but then the Nasty Nazi's discover that he's found it and pinch it off him.  There's then a mad race between the Nasty Nazi's and Indy to recover the Arc........ and the Nasty Nazi's all come to a very gruesome end!!
The Arc is then place In A Safe Place which is revisited in a later movie.....!

This is great fun!!!!

Beanie says 9 squeaks out of 10!!

Jellied eels and smashed up cookies or English biscuits.


  1. Excellent review Beanie! Although... jellied eels?... that must be a Brit delicacy!

  2. This is one of my favorite movies. It reminds me of another movie called Indiana Jones and the Last HoneyPot.

  3. Excellent review! Raiders of the lost arch was always my favorite one as well. Harrison Ford is beary young in that movie. Mmmmm English biscuits sound good, maybe my roommates will make me some for breakfast.

    1. What is your favorite movie you have reviewed so far Beanie?

  4. Oh wow! That's a tough question!!!
