Raiders Of The Lost Ark (1981)

Raiders Of The Lost Ark (49:49) Not Rated R for once because the language in this podcast is not bad at all.


Our 102nd T100P podcast is one of the most enjoyable movies anybody has ever made. Steven Spielberg, George Lucas and their star Harrison Ford redefined what action-adventure pictures could be. But wait! This director is not Bev’s buddy. She liked Jaws, CE3K not so much. Did she jibe with Steve’s 4th AFI movie? Buy some Sparkplug Coffee, then find out!

For The Record: Ryan is wrong that Indy pulls his hat out at the last second from being trapped behind the door in the idol scene. T’was his whip.
