5. The Last Crusade
The third and final of the Indiana Jones films (just keep telling yourself there wasn’t a fourth one – that’s what I do) digs into the history of Indiana Jones by allowing us to meet his father, played the pitch-perfect Sean Connery, as he and Indiana face off against Nazis as they all race to find the Holy Grail. Getting to watch Ford and Connery play off each other throughout the whole film is a pure thing of beauty, and Last Crusade also offers up a killer final act that requires Indiana to have faith in more than just himself as he attempts to save his father’s life. It’s a fun, suspenseful, and perfect way to end the story of Indiana Jones.
