    "If you want to talk about classic films, then Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark should be near the top of the list. As it is, Raiders topped this treasure hunt movie list and it doesn't surprise me. It is the mother of all treasure hunt movies. No explanation needed. And if by chance that you have been too young to have watched this movie, I would suggest you dive into it."

    "The second film in the Indiana Jones series ranks second in this list. And rightly so! While this is probably the darkest movie in the series, it is nevertheless one of the better adventure films ever produced. Then again, you could say that to any Indiana Jones films (maybe with the exception of the Crystal Skull which felt forced). Great film, this."

    "Nicholas Cage is in his element with this film. National Treasure is one of those modern movies that felt like an old movie, and it was great! With a solid plot and witty banter, I am not surprised to see National Treasure rank high in this list. It truly is one of the best, if not the best, treasure hunt movies in recent years."

    "This is an adventure-comedy film that should be on your watch-list if you're into treasure hunts. Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner gave an impressive performance, turning a relatively simple plot into an instant classic. Of course, Danny DeVito is also in the movie. Great movie!"

    "Indiana Jones is back! This time with a lighter theme when compared against the Temple of Doom. Any Indiana Jones movie is an instant classic and The Last Crusade didn't disappoint. One of the best treasure hunt movies of all time."

    "Steven Spielberg does it again. This time with an animated movie. The Adventures of Tintin has the feel of an Indiana Jones movie and that's saying a lot about an animated film. I personally loved watching this movie just because it stayed true with the original material."

    "Finally a bad-ass live-action treasure hunt movie with a female protagonist. No offense to TinTin and her adventures listed above Lara Croft. LOL. Seriously though, Angelina Jolie is the perfect Lara Croft. It feels as though she was born to play the role. "

    "Ron Clements and John Musker are responsible for many hit Disney animated movies. Moana and Aladdin are just prime examples. And if you loved those films, there is no reason whatsoever for you not to like Treasure Planet. "
