Wow. I rate the movies completely the opposite as you.

So you think Raiders is bad? Are you deranged?

While Crusade didn't have the embarrassing low points of Doom, it didn't have the great action setpieces, either. So they're both mixed bags, in my opinion. A similar comparison could be made with the Matrix Reloaded/Revolutions.

And like the Animatrix, the Young Indiana Jones Chronicles are better than either of the sequels.

Obviously, it won't be able to match Raiders. But if Crystal Skull is even somewhat close to as much fun as Temple and/or Crusade it will be my top film of 2008.

And I'm curious, Lazarus, as to what you think the "embarrassing low points" of Temple are? I'm struggling to think of what you could be referring to...

Anything involving Kate Capshaw?

I've always found Kate's performance to be really cute. It might be my childhood bias getting in the way, but there is nothing 'embarrassing' about Temple. Unless they just changed the definition of 'unrelenting badassity' to mean 'embarrassing'


Also...I was under the impression that the geekified one-word version of the title was 'Temple'

I don't know where you guys got 'Doom' from.

Yes. And Short Round, and the shameless ripoffs of Gunga Din...

And I use "Doom" because it's how I felt about this franchise when watching this film.

Yep, it's your childhood bias.

I saw the film when I was 12, and thought it was wack then. I didn't like E.T., either, for the record.

E.T. sucked! I have never understood the appeal...

I did not like Temple of Doom. Were we supposed to take those ridiculous scenes from "India" seriously?

I know... and what the hell was with the that torture scene? It was all wrong...

And who taught that guy to pull a heart out of a dude's chest? Amateur...

I loved Crusade, I thought it was one of the better 'part three' installments to any franchise.

I was about 10 when I first saw Temple of Doom (when it came out) and I'm sure I thought it was fun back then but honestly all I can really remember about it (junior high, high school) was making fun of it. The last time I saw it, maybe 10 years ago, I still didn't like it.

Raiders is like a Scarlett Johannsen/Jessica Biel sandwich.

The Temple of Doom is my favourite, then the Last Crusade, then Raiders. I guess because I don't take them too seriously like some people? I'm in those movies for the fun, and there's the most fun in The Temple of Doom--and it has the best soundtrack of the three.
