Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

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

Watching this film with my mom harshly reminded me how absolutely fucked it is because I've become so desensitized to it at this point after watching it on my own for over the past, like, 10 years. It is SO dark, hopeless, and legit upsetting for a good portion of its runtime. But when it's not being horribly disturbing, it's got some of the most blood-pumping, viscerally exciting, non-stop, thrill-a-minute action scenes you could ever ask for! I still firmly stand by the bridge sequence as being one of the greatest things Speilberg's ever done. For this film to not only be marketed to kids but to also be Spielberg's follow-up to goddamn E.T., one of the landmark family films of the 80s, it's kind of insane that this beautiful nightmare of a movie ever even happened. And seeing it through a fresh pair of eyes again has honestly just made me respect it even more as not just an incredible and unique Indy film, but as an AMAZING horror movie. I love Indiana Jones so much oml.
