Indiana Jones: The Complete Adventures

09.17.2012 | By |

Indiana Jones: The Complete Adventures’ on Blu-ray is the ultimate collector’s item. For the first time ever all four movies are together in one pack and what’s even better they’ve been digitally re-mastered in high definition. It features a two-part documentary called ‘On Set with Raiders of the Lost Ark’, also rarely seen on set footage and interviews with director Steven Spielberg, Executive producer George Lucas and Harrison Ford. For anybody who’s and Indiana Jones fan this is a must have.

 

This is a great way to spend a Sunday with the family, as it will take a whole day to watch: ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’, ‘Indiana Jones and The Temple of Doom’, ‘Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade‘ and ‘Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull’ along with a 5th disc which contains about 7 hours of new material and archival content. The original negative was scanned at 4K and then examined frame-by-frame so that any damage could be repaired as well as the sound, as Ben Burtt explained to us he used his archived material from 1981 for the improvements. With carful restoration and the correction of small technical flaws this is all of Indiana Jones adventures to the maximum.

 

It all beings with ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’, which was completely restored and played in select IMAX movie theaters, the sound and images of the re-mastered film, are phenomenal. Watching this in the movie theaters was fantastic, but to be able to sit at home and watch all four films in Blu-ray in high definition is a real treat. It’s kind of surreal to watch something that was made in the 80’s and for it to look and sound like it was done in the year 2012 as the colors are vibrant and never dull and the whip cracks and shots are louder than ever.

 

It’s a nice way to re-live all the adventures as if it were the first time, being re-introduced to the characters, environments and surrounding stories once more while appreciating each magnificent treasure one after the next. To see Karen Allen and Sean Connery once more in their glory was very entertaining and it goes without mentioning that seeing Harrison Ford in his role of a lifetime with this high definition and sound not only made me swoon, but made me respect him even more as an actor. For everyone who’s waited to have these classic films together, it has all been worth it.
