5.0 out of 5 stars Box Set is very nice, September 19, 2012
This review is from: Indiana Jones: The Complete Adventures (Raiders of the Lost Ark / Temple of Doom / Last Crusade / Kingdom of the Crystal Skull) [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
All of the films look very crisp and sound awesome(DTS)! The packaging is very nice and has some neat artwork that I never saw.Some people have been fussy with how 'Raiders' looked, but they fail to remember the age of the film;some of the matte painting shots are blurry. But they all never looked and sounded better!

I am a fan of these films, I saw Raiders last week in IMAX. I feel it is the best Action Adventure of all time! Nobody can top the technical significance of the 'Truck chase' in Raiders!

The 'Temple of Doom' is a close 2nd. It has the most awesome 40 minute finale in the history of film! It goes so low (dark,violent) and rises so high out of it with wall to wall rousing scenes.

'The Last Crusade' is the most sentimental of all of the films. Without Sean Connery, it is kinda too ordinary, but its good fun!

Because I am an Indy fan, I still like 'Crystal Skull' but I certainly call it the weakest of the 4. I think they all progressively get worse, but they are all good films. If you watch the DOC's Spielberg is apologizing that he didnt want to do aliens! Too much CGI!! Ford was 65 in the last film, but he worked great! The material was the problem! The crew got too lazy and forgot how to properly do an action film like the others! 'Crystal Skull' and 'The Lost World' are OK films, but since they have Steven Speilberg's name attached to them, they are not good!

The extras are alot of fun. There is a new 1 hour DOC on Raiders that is so cool! It shows fun deleted scenes and outtakes in HD!.

Indy paid homage to the Action serials. Now current action films are a garbled mess. You cant tell what is goin on. New filmmakers need to study the 'truck chase' in Raiders so they know how to do an effective and digestible action scene.

John Williams is such a big part of the significance of these films. Especially Temple of doom. I am sad that movies like these are something we have to dig for, because the 'new' movies just don't get it!

I agree with you, It feels like the movies got "progressively worse" but they're still good in some way and other movies today just don't get it, I heard the makers of "National Treasure" tried to make that the new Indy but it just didn't work out, It's a shame the film industry can't make classics like they used to.
