Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark in Live Concert Movie Review and Analysis

Blog and Video Description: In this episode of the Mattacritic, I will be reviewing and analyzing Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark in Live Concert. What this means is that the music is being performed by a live symphony orchestra. It is the music that goes to the original Indiana Jones films. It is a cool experience to say the least. I will give you my rating of the movie and the experience of watching with live symphony orchestra playing the music while the film is playing. I hope this episode will inspire you to read, watch, and learn.

Yes, this is a cool experience to see the movie that I have watched personally several times on VHS, this means I watched the movie on video cassette tape. Before there were DVDs or streaming, if a person did not watch a movie in the theater, this is how a person would have watched the movie unless that person watched the movie on TV. This means that a person would have to watch the movie when it was on a scheduled program of the channel on TV that person would have to watch the movie. The VCR tape has the advantage of being sure you could watch the movie when you wanted to. I would rather stream the movie today than do that, but back then it was not an option.

I watched the movie live with the symphony orchestra playing and you get to see a bunch of different people as there are those that were cosplaying as Indiana Jones. I was not allowed to take pictures and make a video while the concert was happening, so I must describe it to you. It was cool to see it that way. My family was with me, and they let me know that they enjoyed it. I would highly recommend it if you had the time and the money to do this. It is a fun way to do it and you get to see the movie on a big screen like you get to see in a movie theater. It is fun to watch the orchestra play while the movie is being played to the audience that is watching the movie and performing symphony orchestra.

The movie is as good as I remember it. No matter how many times I watch it, it brings back memories of good times. My mother told me when she planned to see it back in May of 1981, she missed part of the beginning. She was where Indiana Jones was escaping with the statue, and she missed the part of him going in to see what happened to get there in the first place.

Indiana Jones has an enemy as an archeologist and that enemy is Belloc. Belloc is a French Archaeologist that always takes the stuff that he finds and keeps it for himself. Belloc will take something of his like the headpiece where Indiana Jones is in South America as the film will start at and the year is 1936.

If anyone has seen the movie knows that Indiana Jones later gets hired by the Army Intelligence to find the Ark of the Covenant. He with Marcus Brody’s blessing knows that he must get this before the Nazis do.

This will lead him to running into his old girlfriend of Marion Ravenwood, who is the daughter of Professor Abner Ravenwood who was Indiana Jones’ professor when he was at the University of Chicago. This will take him to Nepal as this is where Marion Ravenwood is at the time and story takes place. The year that story takes place is 1936.

The film will later take the viewer to Egypt after Indiana Jones was in Nepal to get Marion Ravenwood. She agrees to help him in the quest to help him to find the ark of the covenant before the Nazis do.

Indiana Jones will learn from his friend Salla that the Nazis try to hire him before he did. He refused as he could not work for them. Indy knows he needs Salla’s help to be able to get the Ark of the Covenant before the Nazis do.

This will lead them to finding out that the staff the Nazis use with Belloc’s help is too long. This means they are digging in the wrong place. Indiana Jones will have to figure out how to keep the ark out of the Nazis’ hands. That is easier said than done.

As not to be revealed, nothing more will be revealed here. It does bring the viewer to the climax of the film and set up other movies that will be done in this franchise.

I will give you, my rating. I give Indiana Jones: The Raiders the Lost Ark, a 10 out of 10 as well as give the same thing to the concert as well. I love this movie as it is fun, and you have characters that you can root for. The viewer will know that it is not easy, but Indiana Jones finds a way. The character with the glasses is a psychopath as he enjoys in torturing people and killing them. He is used to getting his way and will do whatever it takes to get what he wants. Psychopaths do not only enjoy killing, but they also enjoy torture. They see it as their right and this what it looks like when you have a cult such as the Nazis running around, doing what they do. The concert was fun and worth doing. As I said before, do it if you can and if not, you can always watch the movie on Disney+. It is available there for you to watch as well. When did you watch this movie? Did you do it as a child or an adult? How old were you when you watched this movie? What rating do you give this film? Have you watched the film with a live symphony orchestra playing the score of the film? Please leave your answer in the comment section below. Thank you.
