Tell Us Dammit

I had this conversation yesterday on my Facebook page and I thought, why not chuck it across to you guys and girls. Recently I found out that Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark was being released on IMAX, to complement the Blu-ray release. I got excited. Very excited. I thought to myself -- seriously, can anyone name a movie that is better than Raiders of the Lost Ark? Is this even possible?

So that is my question for today -- nay, that is my challenge -- can you name a movie that is better than Raiders of the Lost Ark?



    Star Wars Return of the Jedi...

    and Last Crusade :D

    You... chose poorly. The Last Crusade! The penitent man will pass!

    Babylon AD!

    The Phantom Menace

    Jurassic Park

    Empire Strikes Back

      This guy^^ this guy right here!

    The Matrix, ignoring the sequels.

      I suspect I'll be run out of Kotaku town for saying this, but I didn't mind the sequels. Weren't in the same league as the first but there's a lot to like. I'm a sucker for post-apocalyptic, the Zion fight in the third was all kinds of under rated. I'll let myself out now. :P

        No, I enjoyed the sequels, too, but the first is better as a stand-alone.

        I've only seen the sequels once each, and didn't want to watch them again. But it might have just been that they were different styles of movies to the original. It might be worth watching them again now, without the burden of expectation and hype, to see what I think of them.

        Yeah the sequels were good. Some problems, like the architect scene was a bit too wordy, and the action scene with the trucks was a bit long. But overall I liked them.

    Yeah I could, but I wouldn't want to. I love this movie.

    Gattaca and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button means more to me personally than Raiders. That's not to diss that movie at all, but I guess it's all a matter of perspective and taste.

    Aliens & Terminator 2.

    Though I probably enjoy them about the same, so technically you're right, I can't name a better movie.

      Aliens! So damn good.

        Alien > Aliens imo

          Can't we just agree they're all good. Prometheus too. Hell, Alien Resurrection even has a soft spot in my heart. "I'm a stranger here myself." :'(

            There's a dog in Alien 3 too. You can't hate a movie with a dog. :P

              Depends on which version you watch. In the director's cut, it's a bison that births the Runner Alien, not a dog :D

    The Dark Knight

    The Empire Strikes Back followed closely by Return of the Jedi.

    If you mean by better movie overall I could name a few but if you're only asking for a better action movie, I think the only action movie superior to The Lost Ark is Die Hard.

    Lord of the Rings: Return of the King
    Terminator 2
    The Dark Knight

    Scott Pilgrim is one of my favourite films ever.
    Pan's Labyrinth as well.
    & Fight Club. & Trainspotting. & [REC]. & Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. & Big Fish.

    All of which I think are better than Raiders. Sorry.

    Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade is the better movie.

    Terminator 2, Big Fish and Dogma are favourites of mine.

        Looks like someone's Ritalin prescription ran out

    Memento. Along with hundreds of other films.
