4. Romancing The Stone (1984)

This is a very enjoyable and unpretentious adventure. On the one hand, a naive and romantic writer. On the other hand, a hustler who only moves for money. From such different personalities come a good number of funny situations and ingenious dialogues.

The contrast of characters is seasoned with the exoticism of the Colombian jungle and with the villains. Two villains also of very different coat. On one side the ruthless Zolo and on the other Ira and Ralph, the kidnapping cousins.

To all this is added also the contribution of the mysterious map contained in the envelope that Joan receives. The map of a fabulous jewel of incalculable value: the green heart of the Spanish title. Great addition to our list of films like National Treasure, you’d be mistaken to skip this one.
