Back when Hollywood still made great films!
29 October 2017 | by w22nuschlerSee all my reviews

Just bought the Blu Ray set of Indiana Jones and I went straight to the special features. The making of Raiders has about three different parts to it. They are all very good. They show the story of the making of the film in the order the film was made. They also would add in deleted scenes or scenes that slightly got changed. Then they would show the final scene that made the final cut. It is really well done and it helped me relive the greatness of this film when it came out. I'm sad to say these days are over now and films today just don't have the magic they used to. Part of it is CGI, part of it is left wing politics that ruin movies. Still this is a really well made documentary and hopefully the other three movies are well done too. I am also looking forward to the making of the original Star Wars trilogy.
