Indy x 3

ImageIndiana Jones Trilogy (Paramount)
With the new Indiana Jones and the Legend of the Crystal Skull breaking box-office records, Paramount has repackaged the first three Steven Spielberg-directed, Harrison Ford-starring vehicles with mixed results. Thanks to improved transfers, all three films look better, and the extras include new features, although some bonus material from the previous boxed set is missing. So it’s essentially a wash, unless you think the first sequel—and one of Spielberg’s few turkeys—Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom is the best entry in the series. (And that the witty original is now called Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark means that George Lucas should be banned from "improving" movie titles.)
EXTRAS: Spielberg and Lucas introductions and interviews; 12 new and vintage featurettes.
