Temple Of Doom Does Not Need My Recommendation But Receives It Anyways, Highly. (by BigHardcoreRed)
At the beginning of 2005, I have never seen any of the Indiana Jones trilogy. Yes, I have been living under a rock, however, I decided I was going to watch them all, and soon. I watched Raiders a few weeks ago, and now, I have finished viewing Temple Of Doom as well. I have to say that I enjoyed Temple Of Doom a tad more than Raiders Of The Lost Ark. I can not compare Last Crusade yet, but will shortly.There are many reasons I like this movie better than the first. This seemed like more of a cohesive story to me. By that, I mean Indiana does not have to cross into all kinds of different <more>
countries for all kinds of different adventures, seemingly to just fit as much in the movie as possible. Other than the opening, which is meant to introduce Willie Scott Kate Capshaw and Shorty Jonathan Ke Quan and bring them together with Indiana Jones Harrison Ford . Once they are in India, they stay in India. There was plenty of trouble in the one country for them to get into.The main plot is that once Indiana and friends are stranded after a plane wreck in India, they need to get some special stones for the village. Once they find the Temple Of Doom, that is where the story really takes off and gets fun. They discover that the children of the village are slaves to the Indian Chiefs and warriors and make it a point to save them as well. Mola Ram Amrish Puri was a great intimidating character. This was by far his most prominent role in the U.S.For the most part, the special effects in this movie were great, with a few minor discrepancies not bad at all for 1984 . In fact, the only reason I can really see for making the 4th installment of Indiana Jones, is to use todays technology on this great series. It is bound to have some awesome looking displays. The only thing that truly annoyed me in this film was the constant screaming by Kate Capshaw's character Willie. Man, did that ever get tiresome. Overall, a great movie which does not need my recommendation but receives it highly. 9.5/10
Set before the events of 'Raiders', Dr. Jones is in Shanghai doing business with Chinese crime boss Lau Che. Losing the upper hand in a night club he barely escapes with his life and baggage in the form of Willie Scott and sidekick kid Short Round to the airport. But little does he know the plane he gets on is owned by Lau Che and the pilots sneak out in mid-air while they are sleeping.After jumping to safety in an inflatable dinghy Indy, Willie and Short Round drift by an Indian village that has been stricken with bad luck since the theft of their magical Shankara stones. <more>
Encouraged by the villagers to go to Pankot palace and retrieve the stones, Indy has no idea that what he will find involves an evil cult hellbent on taking over the world with their lunatic new religion.Temple of Doom is, without a shadow of a doubt, the best Indiana Jones film. I know a lot of nerds are going to disagree with me but I do think it superior to Raiders of the Lost Ark because I prefer the darker, nastier tone and the fact that it just doesn't let up from the word 'go'! Two hours of Temple of Doom's running time pass in a breeze of sheer adventure as Spielberg takes us from one memorable set-piece to another. The opening musical number, the fight in the Obi-Wan Club, the chase through Shanghai, the plane crash/dingy ride, the journey to Pankot Palace, the dinner scene, the human sacrifice, the freeing of the slaves, the mine-cart ride, the water rush, the rope bridge, the cliff-hanging...wow! How much more can you pack into a film? It's physically impossible!Originally criticised on it's release for being too dark, Temple of Doom still ends up being a classic. I guess the audiences of 1984 were expecting Raiders of the Lost Ark 2 and were taken aback when they got something else. If you watch it with the others you can feel how different the film is with no scenes taking place in America, no University and no Sallah or Marcus Brody.John Williams' brilliant music is also at it's best. He even received an Academy Award nomination despite already being nominated for his work on Raiders of the Lost Ark, which is quite rare. The film did win an Oscar for its visual effects beating the equally impressive effects of Ghostbusters which, when viewed today, at least might seem a little bit dated, but still hold up quite well.Or course, there's nothing really important about the film. I mean it won't beat Schindler's List or Munich in terms of drama but if you want escapism and soaring, thrill-a-minute adventure his name is Indiana Jones and the place is the Temple of Doom.
If Classic Has A Name, It's Temple Of Doom (by MovieMaster95)
An underrated gem of the 80's, An adventure not to be missed and indescribably classic in every sense of the word. I'm a huge fan of the Indiana Jones franchise and unlike most fans, consider Temple of Doom to be my favourite of the series and one of my favourite films.Set one year before Raiders In 1935 , Temple of Doom's plot doesn't revolve around the Nazis and takes a darker root. This time Indiana teams up with a club singer named Willie and ten year old, Asian boy named Short Round. After a treasure deal goes wrong the three escape in a plane which turns out to be a <more>
trap, causing them to do a death defying escape which ends up in India. When the village people their warn them of the mysterious temple and the horrible loss of their children, the three set off to discover the temple. The plot just gets darker and more action packed from there.Harrison Ford returns in his signature role as Indina Jones and is still the tough as nails archaeologist he was in Raiders. Short Round is a lovable and has great chemistry with Indy, and during the film he becomes one of the most memorable sidekicks ever. Willie, is a typical damsel in distress, who spends the movie screaming and moaning, but this is just a throwback to the 'B' movies, the Indiana Jones films are inspired by.From start to finish the film is filled with tons of memorable moments, classic set-pieces and amazing stunt and camera work. With a snow ball pacing that gradually gets bigger and better as it goes along, the movie is pretty much impossible not to enjoy. The score is one of the best I've heard in a film a mixed with the creative and memorable camera work, just makes the film even better and gives me chills every time.I can't stress this enough, but Temple of Doom is a must see for any fan of film. Some say it's too dark Heart Scene and the sillier moments ruined it Dinner Scene , but the experience for me was never spoilt and the dark moments just made it better. With a bigger 'B' movie feel, great action, amazing set-pieces and effects and timeless feel the film gets my highest recommendation. Not to be missed!
One of my favorite sequels! (by Smells_Like_Cheese)
I know that there are a lot of haters when it comes to Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, it has it's flaws and is by no means the strongest movie of the Indiana Jones series, but I just have so many good memories about this film and still to this day when I watch it, it gives me chills and excitement. The characters are memorable, the script is great, and Indiana is still pulling in the action packed excitement continuing from Raiders of the Lost Ark. The direction, editing, even the special effects are great. You have to love Short Round and Willy, the two new side kicks to <more>
Indiana's new adventure. Now I agree, Willy can get a little annoying here and there, but she was just so hilarious in that scene with the bugs and having to save Indiana and Short Round. Plus, Short Round has some of the most memorable lines of the entire series "Okey, dokey, Dr. Jones, hold on to your potato!", cheesy, but so funny. Harrison Ford still has Indiana down to a tee, this was the role that was meant for him.In this prequel, we start off in China on a trade off gone wrong with Lao Che, he ends up meeting a beautiful and very high maintence American girl, Willie. They escape together with Indiana's little side kick, Short Round and accidentally without knowing, they've escaped onto Lao Che's air plane. They wind up in India, where they find out about these rocks that can restore the village they're in, also the children have been kidnapped by Mola Ram and Indiana must free the kids and restore the rocks so the village can be safe again.Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom is a fun sequel, I don't know why people complain so much about it. I can understand if people say it's the weakest of the series, but on it's own, this is a fantastic movie. It's one of my biggest recommendations to my friends as well as other film viewers. It just has everything you could want: action, romance, alligators, and heart sacrifices, lol, OK, that sounded gross, just trust me this that this is such a fun movie. It's one of my favorite films, I know that sounds bad, but I just love this film. It's a lot of fun and Indiana and Short Round are just the best buddies to watch argue on screen. This is an awesome sequel, definitely a must see.9/10
Prequel to "Raiders of the Lost Ark" (by jhaggardjr)
It's funny to call "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom" a followup to "Raiders of the Lost Ark". This film is a prequel to the 1981 smash hit, a movie where the events that take place actually took place before the events in "Raiders". Notice at the beginning of "Raiders" that the year is 1936. In "Temple of Doom", the year is 1935. See what I mean? "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom" is another rollercoaster ride of a movie brought to life by Steven Spielberg and George Lucas. Harrison Ford is back as archaeologist Indiana <more>
Jones who this time searches for a sacred stone that was stolen from an Indian village. Along for the ride is American singer/entertainer Willie Scott Kate Capshaw, aka Mrs. Steven Spielberg and little Chinese sidekick Short Round Ke Huy Quan . On their way to finding the stone they stumble across a palace that leads to the gateway of the Temple of Doom run by an evil Thugee cult. The action and special effects are first-rate as you would expect, though the story is a tad weaker than it was in "Raiders". Plus, Capshaw's performance leaves something to be desired. She goes so far over-the-top in some scenes that you'd wish Karen Allen would show up as Marion. Nevertheless, Capshaw isn't all that bad. She does make an impression during the times when she's not screaming. But Ke Huy Quan now known as Jonathan Ke Quan comes off better as Indy's young sidekick. The following year he starred in the Spielberg produced Richard Donner directed "The Goonies", but then didn't appear in much after that. "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom" is great fun only if you can get by Kate Capshaw's simpering wimpering character or the over-the-top violence. I found it to be exciting from beginning to end.***1/2 out of four POINT OF INTEREST: this was the film that lead to the creation of the PG-13 rating in 1984 along with Spielberg's other 1984 movie "Gremlins" . Both "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom" and "Gremlins" feature violence that most people felt was too strong for a PG rating, though the MPAA felt that it wasn't strong enough to merit an R rating other Spielberg movies that got PG ratings that were quite intense were "Jaws", "Poltergeist", and the original "Raiders of the Lost Ark" . So after "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom" and "Gremlins" opened in theaters at the beginning of the summer movie season of 1984 and became two of that year's biggest hits, the MPAA realized a new rating had to be created. The PG-13 rating was born. In August 1984, the first movies were released with the new PG-13 rating "Red Dawn" and "The Woman in Red" . It's not a new rating anymore. The PG-13 rating has held up very well these last 18 years and it'll still go strong in the years to come. But I'll always remember "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom" as the leading factor to the creation of the PG-13 rating.
It took three viewings. each three years apart, for me to get what Spielberg was trying to do with this film, but once I got it I watched it several times more with complete enjoyment."Raiders of the Lost Ark" is taken directly from the B-movie/serial formats of 1930s Hollywood. In order to accomplish such a pastiche, innovations had to be minor and non-threatening to the original formula being used.With ""Temple", Spielberg decided to break the mold that George Lucas had imposed on him. "Temple" is derived from the "A" grade adventure films of the <more>
'30s and '40s, like George Stevens' "Gunga Din" or the Sabu version of "The Jungle Book". This allows Spielberg to interject considerable doses of comic relief; and it also allows him to take innovative risks, most appearing in the final third of the film, like the roller-coaster mining cart ride. Interestingly, Spielberg's introduction of these innovations appears to have been intended to make sure the film appealed to the same audience as did "Raiders", who would be expecting a B-movie pastiche and unlikely to catch the A-movie references of the first two thirds. Unfortunately, while the innovations are fun on their own terms, they actually missed their intended audience, while confusing others like myself, originally who thought they were just too 'over-the-top'.But time and proper attention does justice to this film. while not in the same class as "Gunga Din", it is certainly entertaining on its own term - and really must be taken on its own, and not viewed as a sequel to "Raiders". On its own, it is really a witty adult's fantasy with some childish play tossed in for the off-beat, gelling into a loopy but amusing visit to a fictional Orient. To be taken only half-seriously.Quite a bit of real fun here.
One of the greatest adventure films of all time... (by WhitePhantom)
Everyone complains about Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. One of my friends and I used to argue for months on end about which Indian Jones film was the superior. Almost anyone we ask say that Temple of Doom is their least favorite, and the worst in the Jones trilogy. I believe the only reason people say this, is because it's the middle film, sandwiched between an all time classic, and a Hollywood blockbuster. To me, there is NO question that Raiders of the Lost Ark is the far superior Indiana Jones film. To anyone who says Last Crusade is the best I can do nothing but disagree let <more>
me point out that all THREE films are nothing short of phenomenal . Temple of Doom had so much to live up to after the first film, and instead of trying to re-create Raiders something I feel Crusade did , Lucas and Spielberg decided to take the franchise in a new direction. In my opinion, this was a great idea. Crusade and Raiders are too similar: both of them take place in desert terrain, both have Indy going after a very famous, biblical artifact, and both have Indy fighting off the Nazi's from attaining this object for global domination. Without Temple of Doom, Last Crusade would be an obvious copy of Raiders of the Lost Ark. A different style of Indy film is needed to expand the trilogy, making Indiana Jones a truly global character, and Temple of Doom did just that.The film itself is a non-stop action, adventure ride. Harrison Ford is once again AMAZING as the dashing professor/archaeologist thrill seeker. Short Round is a loveable character who adds a humorous touch, and reveals the more compassionate side of Indy's character. The ceremony scenes are truly breathtaking and tense. During these scenes the film contains some very graphic images, but are used justifiably to convey the real dark, feel of this film i.e. the removing of the man's heart while he's still alive, and lowering him into a fiery pit . The mine cart chase scenes are the most amazing, fast moving action sequence in any of the Indy films, and you feel like you're on a roller coaster each time you watch it. All these events lead to the film's spectacular and memorable climax.I know with three films as amazing as the Indiana Jones trilogy, it's hard to pick a best and worst film, in fact it's nearly impossible. I'm just going to say that each film is great on it's own, and really shouldn't be compared to the other two.
Changed My Mind About This Stylish Film (by ccthemovieman-1)
For a long time, this was the only one of the three Indiana Jones films I did not like. Then, when it was part of the DVD package that came out over five years ago, I had to buy it if I wanted the other two, so I gave it a third look. Wow, all of sudden I liked it. For the first time, the woman Kate Capshaw and the young boy Ke Huy Quan weren't as annoying as I had remembered them. The stupid kid really had rubbed me the wrong way, but this time only Kate was annoying....and she was fine once she calmed down and got rid of the hysterics.The action in this film is mostly at the <more>
beginning and at the end. It is so Rambo-ish bad guys never hit the target but good guys always do it is ludicrous. It also has dumb dialog in a number of spots, paying homage to voodooism, spells and other nonsense.Yet, despite these criticisms, it's entertaining start-to-finish and has some fantastic visuals. The photography in here is beautiful: the best of the three Jones adventures. I particularly liked the opening dance number which reminded me of a Busby Berkeley extravaganza. This whole film looks spectacular on DVD.
Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (by jboothmillard)
A very good second film, perhaps not as good as the first Raiders of the Lost Ark or third Last Crusade, but still a very popular one from director Steven Spielberg Jaws, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, Schindler's List, Saving Private Ryan . Indiana Jones Harrison Ford this time is not involved with German Nazis or in amongst the war, he is in India searching for sacred stones belonging to a village. Accompanied by the squeamish Wilhelmina 'Willie' Scott Kate Capshaw, Spielberg's wife and Short 'Shorty' Round introducing Jonathan Ke Quan he must go to Pankot <more>
Palace, where there is supposed to be a Temple of Doom where the villains stole the village's Sankara stone, which helps them get their food and water and other stuff. So he is going there to find the stones, and also free the many children that they stole from the parents. What follows is some stuff that small children may find scary, including the villain Mola Ram Amrish Puri who can take out men's hearts, and places people in a special cage to be lowered into the deadly pit. At one point, Indiana himself is made a villain when he drinks the blood of the God they worship, but he is revived and they get all the children out, and escape in an exciting train cart chase, oh, and collapse a wood and rope bridge. Also starring Roshan Seth as Chattar Lal, Philip Stone as Captain Phillip Blumburtt, Roy Chiao as Lao Che, A View to a Kill's David Yip as Wu Han, Ric Young as Kao Kan and Dan Aykroyd as Earl Weber. It won the Oscar for Best Visual Effects, and it was nominated for Best Music for John Williams, and it was won the BAFTA for Best Special Visual Effects, and it was nominated for Best Cinematography, Best Editing and Best Sound. Steven Spielberg was number 56 on The 100 Greatest Pop Culture Icons, Harrison Ford was number 5 on The 100 Greatest Movie Stars, and Indiana Jones was number 2 on 100 Years, 100 Heroes & Villains. Very good!
