Day Two: Favourite Movie
This one is easy. As I implied back in this post (other good candidates there)…
Wow, what a cruddy trailer!
I’ve watched this movie too many times to keep track. It’s got everything you want in pure cinema entertainment. Romance, comedy, suspense, action, drama, even a dash of horror. Spielberg, Ford, and Lucas: not one of the three has matched it since. In fact, not one of the three has matched it *ever*, although they’ve all come close at least once (Spielberg and Lucas once each, Ford three times).
Part of this undoubtedly has to do with the impressionable quality of the 10-year-old mind. It’s quite unlike any other period in your life. Favorite movie is not an objectively measurable target, tough patootie. Raiders is the best.
