In this episode, we begin a two-parter that starts a new annual theme: Spielberguary! In Part I, we discuss Raiders of the Lost Ark and Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. We also welcome back Nerds on Film co-founder Dave McGuire to join in the discussion!
Hey dear readers, I’m back with another review of the Best o’ Boxes series. This time, with the Indiana Jones saga and yes, you read correctly. I do mean saga; the fourth one does count. As a GIGANTIC fan of the Indiana Jones series, I was super excited when I heard the news of its blu ray, remastered release on September 18, 2012. I anxiously awaited the package’s arrival and was ecstatic when it finally appeared. One of the important factors of this release was the fact that Steven Spielberg supervised the remastering process of all three original films, since Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was already remastered from its previous 2008 blu ray release. This release was such a monumental occasion that Spielberg hosted a screening in September 2012 of the remastered Raiders of the Lost Ark in Los Angeles and had a Q & A session afterwards; oh how I wish I was there.
