Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom ★★★★

You know Temple of Doom is great because despite it having the most obnoxiously annoying character in film history, I still really like it.

The annoying character in question is undoubtedly Willie Scott. All she does is scream, complain, and serve as an incredibly weak love interest. The film would be better off without her and so would my ears.

"The biggest trouble with her is the noise"

'Short Round' on the other hand rules and I love his father/son-esque dynamic with Indy.

I also dig how dark this film is, so much so that the film’s horror elements contribute to this being one of the few childhood classics where I vividly remember watching it for the first time. I recall being far too young watching this in some hotel room and being scared shitless.

Childhood nightmares aside, although I hate Willie Scott with a passion, I love the adventure/horror fusion of Temple of Doom and the bridge sequence has to be Indy at his most badass.
