Marebb’s review published on Letterboxd:
I was a nine or ten year old child once who had no clue what problematic cliches or white savior narratives are. What I saw was the wild, scary and awesome ride that Temple of Doom is. It has a special place in my heart. I am not saying that you should make this movie again today. And if you don't like it well, it's your opinion, I don't intend to take that away from you. But I don't need anyone to tell me that I am not allowed to enjoy this.
Temple of Doom is awesome. It has everything from a musical number too scary rituals too mine cart chases and too an end fight on a bridge and it is just so wild and amazing. I don't care what anyone including Spielberg himself says. Temple of Doom is a wonderful pulpy 80s adventure film and yes, even Kate Capshaw is great. It's fun, I mean what other film has a ritual sacrifices where the bad guy takes out the heart from people? And fucking mine cart chases!!!
