I want it known that despite the reputation that Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom is a bad movie, it isn't. In fact it is a kick-ass movie. I would bet that anyone claiming otherwise has not seen it in a long time. I'm not saying that it is better than Raiders of the Lost Ark or Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Don't get me wrong. But very few action/adventure movies would be considered "good" if they were all constantly compared to the first and third Indy movies. I just finished Temple of Doom and I'm telling you, watch it again for the first time. You will be surprised.
Two little mentioned things about the movie:
First, did any of you know that Dan Akroyd is in Temple of Doom? He plays the guy who talks to Indy as he gets onto the plane at the beginning.
Second, Temple of Doom is a prequel to Raiders of the Lost Ark. The events of Raiders take place in 1936. Temple of Doom takes place in 1935. That's great! I love that they did that but didn't make a big deal out of it.
