Sunday Morning Movie: Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984)

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984)

Directed by Steven Spielberg

Breakfast: Bacon & Eggs

Now this film doesn’t even come close to touching the greatness that is Raiders of the Lost Ark, but it’s still a damn fun ride. Even after 20 years watching this, I still laugh at all the jokes. Kate Capshaw may not be a Karen Allen, but I think she does a fine job as Willie. She and Ford manage to have enough chemistry on screen to make it work. The opening scene is great, silly…but great and the bug scene is classic. Although, you can definitely tell the filmmakers are pushing new angles trying to make the sequel as “fresh” as the first, and really only some of it works. Nonetheless it is an enjoyable sequel that doesn’t deserve as much flack as it gets.

Grade: B+
