Indiana Jones is my favorite male movie character of all time and I just love these movies (pretending the fourth one was never made). “Raiders of the Lost Ark” is still my favorite in the series, so I decided to pick my favorite moments from that movie. Here they are.
Moment # 1: Opening scene
We meet Indiana Jones while he is trying to capture an important relic from a hidden temple. This scene shows us everything we want from an adventure movie.
Moment # 2: Drinking game
We meet Marion Ravenwood, the owner of a bar. She is in the middle of a drinking game. Just when it looks like she’s about to give up, she wins!
Moment # 3: Bar fight
Indiana Jones is trying to find one of the pieces Marion’s father collected. But more people are after it. Dr. René Beloq, a rival archeologist, wants it too.
Moment # 4: Show off
On a busy market a man is trying to show his sword skills and he wants to fight Indiana Jones. Well, Indiana isn’t in the mood and just shoots him. Just like that.
Moment # 5: “Why did it have to be snakes?”
While still on a mission , Indiana Jones has to face what he fears and hates most: snakes! A pit full of snakes.
Moment # 6: Brutal beheading
Indiana and Marion are trying to get on a plane, but someone is in the way. The big guy is putting up a fight, but Indiana is smarter. One of the propellers is coming towards the bad guy, beheading him. Which is a very brutal scene by the way for this movie anyway.
Moment # 7: Truck chase
One of the most awesome chases ever. Especially the part where Indiana Jones is hanging at the back of a truck and then manages to climb back up on it again.
Moment # 8: The ark revealed
The ark is finally revealed by René Beloq and his men, but it probably wasn’t a good idea. Because they, well…. They melt.
