Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom ★★★★★

"Indy, I love you."

There are two specific moments in this film that easily justify giving this film five stars. The first is in the beginning of the film when Indy throws a massive flaming meat kabob at a skinny villain, killing him on impact. This is absolutely amazing and it brings me so much joy that it is difficult to express in any written language. The second moment is just before the rail cart chase when Short Round crouches down to trip one of the baddies who falls and grabs onto the cart allowing Short Round to run up his back and into the cart. This rather simple bit of choreography is exactly why great adventure/action films are so much fun to watch.
