Indiana Jones- Temple of Doom
It was on yesterday so decided to watch it for the 100th time.

In doing some IMDB research on it, it looks like it was pretty controversial when it came out and critics were split. Never knew it was banned in many middle eastern and Asian countries.


I always thought it was the weakest of the original 3, but still a good movie. Kate Capshaw and Short Round were annoying as shit(what is it with Lucas and his annoying sidekicks), but overall i liked the story.

What are the M/TV's opinion on it?

Is this the show that was on Nickelodeon where the teams of kids ran through the jungle-type obstacle cour.... nvm different show

ETA: In my defense, OP added Indiana Jones to the thread title afterwards.

I always thought and remember hearing at the time that it was purposefully made like an old B-movie serial.

Ergo, everything over-the-top, the constant banter and humor and the cliff-hangers.

I mean...c'mon the movie has them jump out of airplane using a rubber pool raft, land on the Himalayas and then sled down the mountain on the snow and go over the cliff...and that's just the first 15 minutes of the movie.

It's my least favorite of the the original 3, but I still love it. It holds a special place in my heart though because I remember being so excited when it came out. My parents took me out for pizza and and a movie.

Temple of doom really isn't bad at all. I quite enjoy it.

I've been watching that movie my whole life and I just found out last month that it's technically a prequel to ROTLA

What ever happened to Short-Round?

I mean, he followed this up with Goonies...man, he must have thought his career was going to be awesome in the span of two years.

I never saw it for the longest time because everyone told me how crappy it was, so when I caught it on HBO on weekend I really enjoyed it. Definitely not as good or timeless as Raiders or Last Crusade, but definitely a fun adventure movie.

Everyone hates Capshaw, but she really did it for me in this movie.

Vastly underrated. Some awesome scenes. Lava pits, crocs, ripping out hearts, etc

I like it. Definitely darker and reflective of the divorce George Lucas was going through. Capshaw was definitely annoying, but she was supposed to be.

Wasn't it the main reason why they created the PG-13 rating?

Crazy that a PG film "for kids" that had a guy's heart ripped out before being burned alive caused such a fuss.

It's the reason we have the PG 13 rating

I love Temple of Doom and will meet anyone at Sonic who hates on it. Its the quintessential fun adventure movie for me because it's got it all, humor, danger, incredible action scenes, and a bangable Kate Capshaw.

Yeah, but you wanted to kill her. Even as kids we wanted to kill her.

She wouldn't shut-up, was stupid but egotistical and wanted to be pampered over someone else dying...she was Skylar White/Peggy Bundy/Betty Draper/Sharon Stone in Casino/Jenny from Gump and Diane Keaton in the Godfather and Scarlett O'Hara all rolled into one.
