I was eight years old when Raiders of the Lost Ark came out. My mom, my aunt, and I went to a Chinese buffett before the movie. I think I ate like seven egg rolls, which were my favorite at the time.
I remember sitting near the front in the theater and grabbing their legs when the boulder was chasing Indy. When the Nazis opened the Ark, I slid to the floor. The face melting scene was too much. Images from that film and Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom are forever etched in my cultural consciousness. Sad, I know.
With the fourth movie coming out soon, they’ve made Topps trading cards with some classic characters. Check them out.
