Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom ★★★★

Ah yes, the Indiana Jones horror movie. Campier than the first, more bizarre than the first, and ultimately takes itself less serious than the rest of the series which works to it’s benefit. Temple of Doom is completely off the rails, and that’s why I’ve always loved it regardless of the clear quality drop from Raiders. This feels like Spielberg’s Return of the Jedi, fully embracing the camp but going full nightmare-fuel mode to scar us for the rest of our childhood until we grow up and realize it’s SCARIER watching it now! Such a classic, again the imagery is amazing and some of the sets look like something from an Italian gore fest and I couldn’t be happier about it. This series will always have a place in my heart.
