Raiders of the Lost Archives [Video]

By Jason Fitzpatrick on January 2nd, 2012

This 13 minute video compares, frame for frame, Raiders of the Lost Ark against a mashup of 30 adventure films from 1919 to 1973–it’s a visual feast of adventure action.

If you’re ever been in an argument with someone about how genres are influences by the works that come before them, you’ll definitely want to trot this fantastic bit of editing out. Click on the above video to enjoy a sort of meta-action-movie adventure that clearly shows how early works in the genre heavily influenced Indiana Jones.
