In the history of modern film there are
only a handful of true icons. I don't think any of you would argue
that INDIANA JONES is towards the top of that list.
As the new film has hit theaters and
quickly rocketed to the top of the box office we are once again
engulfed in INDYMANIA and it is the perfect time to rediscover the
films that have brought us to that point.
A new box set of the original trilogy
all in their Special Edition forms in now out and it is quite simply
a must have addition to any true film fans collection. Granted these
films are not horror films in the technical sense but if you are a
fan of the genre then there is no way in hell that you are not a fan
of these films.
As expected the set includes RAIDERS OF
THE LOST ARK, INDIANA JONES AND THE TEMPLE OF DOOM and INDIANA JONES
AND THE LAST CRUSADE. I really don't think that there is any need to
go into any detail as to what these films are about but needless to
say they are all 3 classics and if you don't yet have them in your
collection then this is the perfect time to add them.
The price is right as well, you can own
all three of the films for less than $40 and it all comes packaged in
that nifty little packaging that you see on the right hand margin.
