As every Indiana Jones fans like myself knows this year marked the 30th anniversary of Raider of the Lost Ark. Anyone who knows me well will know of my own love of the film and how in many ways if not for the man with the hat there I would not be the person/geek I am today.

Someone who understands this love affair perfectly is emmy-winning writer and producer Damon Lindelof of Lost and Star Trek fame, amonst other projects. In an atricle/ love letter over at Hero Complex he laid down why Raiders of the Lost Ark is such a great, great film. After reading the article I can honestly this is one of the best articles on Indiana Jones I’ve ever read it sums up my thoughts and feeling on this fantastic film.

Dear “Raiders of the Lost Ark,”

You are awesome. God, you are awesome.

I have seen you, in your entirety, more than one hundred times. I know there are folks out there that have seen you more than that, but they don’t know you like I do.

really know you. I know what music you listen to and where your scars are. I know that you like to be kissed where it doesn’t hurt. And I’m sorry if that seems a little “creepy,” but hey, you’re into snakes and melt people’s faces off, so we’re speaking the same language, are we not?

So what, exactly, is it that I love most about you, “Raiders of the Lost Ark”? Man …  I don’t even know where to start. But let’s get past the obvious stuff that all your other admirers seem so dazzled by (the whip!!!) and talk about what truly makes you unique.

Head over to Hero Complex to read the rest of the letter. If you’re an Indy fan it’s well worth the visit. Damon Lindelof I salute you sir.
