27 – Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981)

A little off the top buddy?

A little off the top buddy?

The Indiana Jones original trilogy are classics.I can’t comment on the Crystal Skull one because it was so unmemorable that i can’t remember it.I think it had aliens in it so that scrapped it for me.Harrison Ford is on form for Raiders of The Lost Ark,the looks and expressions,the one liners and all the other comedic bits are delivered with ease and excellent timing.But i guess that’s all down to the writing too.This is the first film in the set,i prefer the one with Sean Conner y as his dad,was that one the Last Crusade?Anyways this one’s about the Nazi,they all seem to be about Nazis,and their quest to get the Ark of The Covenant. This ark contains the ten commandments.The Nazis believe that it’s a phone that you can call up God and have the craic with him.Who knows maybe it is.Indy thinks differently,he saw a picture in a book that shows it as a big spooky ghost that kills people.When it does get opened it’s more like a direct line to Satan not the other guy.Watching the credits i noticed a Micheal Moore as a unit Director or something to that degree,no wait,a quick google reveals it’s not him.

202 – The Exorcist (1973)

Get the Vanish Oxy Action out

Get the Vanish Oxy Action out

I don’t watch a lot of scary movies because i get a bit on edge after watching them.So i was a bit apprehensive when i put this on the last night,thinking I’d be scared shitless.But i wasn’t. I’ve seen the Exorcist parodied and lampooned so many times that the bits that were meant to scare me i found comical.The only thing that scared me was the audio bits.Like when the devil is speaking backwards and all that other shit.Not a bad film over all.That crucifix masturbation scene made me cringe,her box would be well bust up the way she was swinging that brass cross into her.Also,how did the devil even get into Reagan ?
