Warrior (Arthouse Action Films)

Badass Action in Mind and Body is the Journey


Why the Warrior?

The greatest fight you will ever have is inside your own head. Mindset is key. Yet we act in an outside world to seek opportunities, adventure, comrades-in-arms and a fulfilling and authentic life. At the same time, we inspire and find great inspiration in films that are Epic like "Gladiator" or dangerous like "The Great Raid" or "Saving Private Ryan".

This section is about Badassery in real life and in films so you might find Martial Arts, Movies, Fool Stunts and more. Oh, weapons and World War II.

Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981)

November 02, 20231 min read

Meet Indiana Jones, globetrotting college professor, star archeologist, fedora model and longtime hater of snakes. Steven Spielberg and George Lucas’ whipcracking treasure hunter was a throwback to the heroes of 1930s serials, and the first of their Jones movies feels like a series of cliffhangers: Will Indy escape the cave with the booby traps and rolling boulders? Can he rescue Marion Ravenwood and the ark of the covenant from the Nazis? How’s he going to get himself out of that pit of writhing serpents? Rarely have such vintage thrills and spills felt so timeless, though the chase scene in which Harrison Ford hangs off the front of a moving truck remains the epitome of Eighties movies’ derring-do.
