  • 30 Day Movie Challenge Day 3: Your Favorite Adventure Movie

    Holy crap, is that*Han Solo?! At the tender age of ten, having enjoyed the 1977 film*Star Wars and being head over heels with the 1980 feature The Empire Strikes Back, it’s obvious a lot of kids around my age range wanted to be either Luke Skywalker or Han Solo. Most of us had no clue […]

    Yes, Raiders. As close to a perfect action-adventure movie as you can get.

      I don't want to repeat my overall favorite movie (The Man Who Would Be King), so I'll choose another title.

      I'm anticipating that "Favorite Fantasy Movie" will be a future installment of this series, so I'll save [redacted] for that.

      I have a feeling that "Favorite Epic Movie" might end up as a category as well, so I'll also hold on to [redacted].

      So I've got some titles that are adventure films, but ina much more downbeat way.

      Aguirre, The Wrath of God: Werner Herzog's 1970s film about a conquistador leading a doomed expedition on the Amazon. Absolutely hypnotic.

      The Wages of Fear and Sorcerer: the 1950s French original and the 1970s American remake about a ragtag bunch of misfits who are driving trucks full of nitroglycerin through a hazardous jungle road. Both of the films are absolutely amazing, but I like Sorcerer a bit more for more background on the protagonists, a superior ending, and the greatest role in Roy Scheider's distinguished career. Both films have scenes with great suspense and excitement, great visuals, and a bleak, nihilistic world view.

        Sorceror's great. Almost more a thriller to me, both in the movie itself, and the appreciation for how they made the movie. Which actually brings to mind, of several others (and your suggestion of Aguirre), a close runner up in the sprawling category of Adventure: Herzog's other intense South American movie about (Klaus Kinski-fueled) megalomania, Fitzcarraldo.

          Raiders of the Lost Ark is the ultimate adventure movie.
          My Avatar: The lovely Mikuru Asahina from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. Why do I stick with her in a world of constantly changing avatars? Because:
          1) Her friendly, playful attitude in that picture, (despite being forced unwillingly into cosplay), reflects my own friendly, playful personality;
          2) Mikuru-chan is an excellent combo of smoking hot and super sweet cuteness; and
          3) It makes it easiier for me to find my own posts in threads.

            I'm with you guys on Raiders as well-It's a rollicking, fun adventure movie in the style of the old cliffhanger movie serials of the 1930s/1940s. Steven Spielberg & George Lucas hit a home run with this movie IMO, especially with the choices of Harrison Ford as Indy & Karen Allen as Marian. Highly recommended.
