         ​“…One of the strangest permutations of '80's nostalgia to hit movie screens—the now-notorious RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK: THE ADAPTATION, a 106-minute shot-for-shot amateur-video remake of the 1981 Spielberg-Lucas adventure flick, created over a span of seven years by a group of kids in small-town Reagan-era Mississippi.  

 

         "Filled with ingenious contraptions and overweening jerry-rigs, THE ADAPTATION remakes Raiders on less than 1/2,000th of Paramount's original $20 million budget, conjuring exotic locales out of cardboard sets in parents' basements, casting tweens in Boy Scout uniforms as Nazi bad guys, and rolling a gigantic hand-crafted boulder through the family garage to create the film's signature scene. 

 

   Nothing short of slapdash spectacular.”
