The Indiana Jones Trilogy (1981-1989)

While other movies might please the sci-fi geek’s itch, the peerless production of all 3 Indiana Jones movies (overlooking the 4th uninspired entry) certainly serves the experience story lover’s needs. Purposefully based upon the corny movie serials of the 1930s and 40s, the experiences of Indiana Jones were understood through a collaboration of George Lucas and Steven Spielberg, which most likely represents how fantastic they are.

Both The Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981) and The Last Crusade (1989) are still extraordinary cinematic experiences, while the 2nd movie, The Temple of Doom (1984), does suffer some troublesome representations of Indian culture. Regardless, no geek would lack these movies in their toolbox.

Jurassic Park (1993)

Like any great guideline, there’s constantly an exception.

Jon Favreau’s professional hand guided the production and offered the world a re-imagined superhero world that, it ends up, was popular beyond the generation of now-grown-up comics fans.
