Raiders of the Lost Ark’s Horror Elements Are What Make It Legendary

Raiders of the Lost Ark is my favorite film. Like, to the degree that if I were marooned on a desert island and given the option between water and Steven Spielberg’s classic 1981 action blockbuster, I’d go with the latter. The film released before I was born, and I didn’t really discover it until later in my life when my tastes evolved from Beethoven’s 2nd to Die Hard, but since my “discovery” of famed archeologist Indiana Jones, life has always carried a lot more depth and meaning … okay, not ...

‘Indiana Jones 5’ Set Image Makes It Very Clear We’re Getting a Digitally De-Aged Indy

A new Indiana Jones 5 set image has surfaced, and it confirms what we suspected: we’re getting a digitally de-aged Harrison Ford at some point in the movie. This will immediately make some apprehensive, while also making others wonder: just how much digital de-aging is going on in the movie? And why? Ford is older now, of course, but he looks great for his age, and he already looked like an older Indy in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. So what gives? Biodigital Jones, M...

Betrayed review – restrained depiction of Norway’s Holocaust victims

This account of the internment of a Jewish boxer from Oslo packs an emotional punch, but pulls back from displaying any real horrorsSteven Spielberg once said of Schindler’s List that he was telling a story of the Holocaust, not the story. “There are millions of stories of the Shoah.
