I know you’ve seen these, but I implore you to watch them again.
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
Raiders of the Lost Ark might be critically regarded as the best of the Indy films, but I was fourteen when Indy went on his supposedly Last Crusade and it’s my favorite. I’m not a huge movie quote-spouter regularly, but with this film (and Ghostbusters), I can whip out (ha!) more than a few. And don’t forget Sean Connery! Plus Hitler signing the Grail Diary! This film belongs in a museum.
One of my all-time favorite episodes of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe was when there was a bad guy so bad that He-Man and Skeletor teamed up to save Eternia. Aside from the happy heroics and the happier soundtrack, this film does the same – the Rocketeer teams up with mobsters to fight Nazis! America, fuck yeah!
This film seemed to be the most fun Brad Pitt had since Snatch (take that whatever way you want). We get not only exposed to one of the greatest film villains of all-time in Chistoph Waltz’s Colonel Hans Landa, we are treated to an early glimpse of the greatness that is Michael Fassbender/Magneto. Bonus: Mike Myers isn’t playing Shrek! We also get one more guest appearance from Hitler himself, but the Inglourious Basterds accomplish what Indy couldn’t, so once again… America, fuck yeah!
