Physical Media: Going Out With a Bang

“While the ease of accessing the theoretically abundant and immediate digital inventory is attractive, there’s still a sense of loss surrounding the phase-out of physical media.”

Indyheimer: The Archaeologist and the Physicist

“Enter Indyheimer and the historical overlaps between J. Robert Oppenheimer and Indiana Jones. Barbenheimer was entertaining. But Indyheimer? That’s exciting.”

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (Blu-ray)

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

“Dr. Jones makes his first house call on Blu-ray and elegantly makes a case for why his latest adventure is a great movie.”

1957: The Crystal Skull
The Sci-Fi Indy

“There is no doubt, once the hysteria over expectations and all the initial, pent-up anticipation settle down, Crystal Skull will be able to sit comfortably in the Indy canon. Forming something like a cinematic Beatles, this Fab Four of film has its rugged adventure (Raiders), its pulp horror (Temple of Doom), its buddy picture (Last Crusade), and now Crystal Skull represents pure, glorious pulp sci-fi.”

Indiana Jones and the Marketing Storm

“Now it seems as if almost everything known to man will somehow be tied into Indy’s latest adventure. Here’s a brief rundown of a few of the highlights. A few. Only a very, very few.”

Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
(Special Edition DVD)

1939: The Holy Grail
The Amiable Indy

“The most amiable of the original Indiana Jones adventures, The Last Crusade is loaded with heart and, as it turns out, the most valuable treasure Indy finds is a restored relationship with his hard-nosed father.”

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom
(Special Edition DVD)

1935: The Sankara Stones
The Dark Indy

“Reviled and dismissed by many, The Temple of Doom is a textbook example of why sequels are such a tricky proposition. This one dares to stray from many of the elements that made Raiders of the Lost Ark such a triumphant success, but for those who stick with it and think about it, it’s easily the pulpiest of the original three and, even if you’ve already had bugs for lunch, it has more than its share of savory delights.”

Raiders of the Lost Ark

Raiders of the Lost Ark
(Special Edition DVD)

1936: The Ark of the Covenant
The First Indy

Raiders of the Lost Ark is the kind of movie only the most jaded can’t enjoy. Unfortunately, though, the Special Edition DVD release still doesn’t provide the deluxe treatment the movie so richly deserves. Maybe the fairly inevitable Blu-ray release will fix that some time down the road.”

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

The Return of Indiana Jones

“... chatter of another cinematic adventure has served as constant grist for the rumor mills. So many story ideas ran the gauntlet only to be gunned down. False starts were numerous. Hopes were raised then dashed.”

(Contest entry for Moving Pictures magazine)

Indiana Jones

Indiana Jones and the Resurrection of Dreams

“There were plenty of setbacks, many brought on by their boundless ambition. One summer’s filming came to an abrupt stop when Eric’s mom shut down the production after she found them filming in the basement with Eric screaming and his back on fire.”

Young Indiana Jones Volume Three

The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones Volume Three:
The Years of Change

The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles conclude with yet another incredibly comprehensive set, this time 10 discs of adventure, romance, and fascinating history. Ernest Hemingway, Edith Wharton, George Gershwin, and John Ford are only a tiny sampling of the real-life personalities Indy encounters before heading off to college and the archaeological studies that launch his legendary career.”

Young Indiana Jones

The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones Volume Two:
The War Years

The War Years further proves The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles was a TV series unlike any other. During the course of this 9-disc set, the series offers up high drama from the front lines of Verdun and the Somme but also manages to switch gears with absurdist, screwball comedy from Barcelona and Prague.”

Young Indiana Jones

The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones Volume One

“While watching this exquisitely comprehensive 12-disc set, the first of three volumes to be released in the coming months, several words repeatedly come to mind: ‘extraordinary,’ ‘unprecedented,’ and ‘positively brilliant.’”

Indiana Jones

The Adventures of Indiana Jones

“While Harrison Ford, Steven Spielberg, and George Lucas set out to salute the classic serials of the 1930s, the Indiana Jones movies have become classics all their own.”
