Swashbuckling. Hidden treasure. Booby traps and daring escapes. Classic action-adventure movies deliver thrills and surprises in ways no other genre can. One thing fans will tell you they all share, as well, are brilliant continuity details that tie together not only individual films, but entire franchises. In the Pirates of the Caribbean series, for example, Will Turner is cursed to spent ten years off shore, which the timeline of the movies actually holds to. In 1991's Hook, the Lost Boys show continuity with their wardrobes, which all depict the different time periods they were living in prior to arriving in Never Land. Some of these details even span decades. In Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008), Indy gives the same homework to his students that he did in Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981).
