    Still great fun even if I have seen it 100 times and I still laugh at this exchange.

    "Dr Jones, wasn't it the Sultan of Madagascar who threatened to cut off your head if you ever returned to his country?"

    "No, it wasn't my head.

    "Then your hands, perhaps?"

    "No, it wasn't my hands. It was my...My misunderstanding."

    It always seems that the most damning thing you can say about a sequel is that it is derivative of the original. That certainly cannot be said of Temple of Doom. This thing is mad as hell/bonkers, but it is not a retread in any way. In fact, the only nod the original Indiana that I saw was when Dr. Jones saved his hat from under the falling wall. Other than that, this wonderfully bat-shit crazy film was all its own.

    On garde la même recette et on recommence. On ajoute quelques scènes spéctaculaire (spécialement la cérémonie d'adoration de Kali), une autre bimbo, un enfant et quelques clins d'oeil au premier opus et le tour est joué.

    Toujours de très bons effets spéciaux, décors, musique, aventure, ...

    Juste dommage la pirouette scénaristique (l'arrachage du coeur qui n'a pas lieu quand c'est la blonde) mais sinon toujours un bon moment.

    Review #5 of 200 - It is the second one of the Indiana Jones triology. Yes it is just 3 films because the crap that they did a few years ago is not really comparable to these ones and for me its just a joke movie they made because Lucas and Ford needed to pay large sums in child and spouse support.

    In fact temple of Doom is probably the most cheesy of all three and the worst also in…

    I need to watch this film again. It is the least viewed Indy movie for me and I never paid much attention to it, probably due to more favourable and endless repeat viewings of Raiders. Seeing this again I was struck by how simple the plot was. Get in - beat the bad guy - get out. The moment when Indy is back to himself and knocks the henchman who slides along the ground - from that point forward is…

    A conversation about the ever-loyal sidekicks and distressed damsels:

    People seem to be really harsh on Short Round, labeling him as an annoying kid sidekick familiar to the 80's. I am appalled. How can you call someone annoying who kisses an elephant on the head while whispering "You are my best friend". Short Round is the perfect combination bad ass bravery and unwavering loyalty you want in a sidekick, yet with an innocence that sneaks out reminding you he is…

    The Indiana Jones sequels are probably the biggest movies on my watchlist. For some reason, I had never seen them. I'd seen Raiders just never the sequels. Today, I decided to put an end to that and watch Temple of Doom. And it was great! This is often considered the weakest of the three and although I did prefer Raiders, I still really liked this one. Sure there was tons of plot holes and it was very unrealistic but it…

    Indiana Jones And The Temple Of Doom is the prequel to Raiders Of The Lost Ark. In the film Indiana Jones becomes stranded in India and is asked by a local tribe to help find some magical stones, Indiana goes on the quest to find the stones but then finds a cult of child enslaving, human sacrificing, black magic practising Kali worshippers and has to stop them in order to get the stones.

    This film overall lacked the fun aspect…

    My childhood favourite of the trilogy. Managing to excite me, make me laugh, jump for joy, get the heebie-jeebies, and generally get the shit scared out of me. But ultimately it made me run around the house with my invisible whip, singing the theme song straight after watching it.

    It's overly cheesy, terribly paced, overbearingly scored, uncomfortably dark, painfully racist, and doesn't really make sense in regards to the 'beliefs' of the other two films, but I love every second…

    Hey, it isn't as good as Raiders and it has a dark tone but that doesn't make it bad! It is basically the Indiana Jones version of Evil Dead.
