At the time I think I would of agreed. My taste for women seems to delve into the dark some times though. Marion is a total bada**. Strong, knows what she wants, a fighter, and isn't afraid to scrap with the boys. Those type of women are much hotter than needy divas any day in my book.

Marion from Raiders...not...well today.

Above all 3, I do agree there's no doubt that willie is hotter than the other 2 , marion is more perfect as the one for Indy since they've been together when they were young, they are meant to be together, so marion doesn't need to be present hot, just the normal the better. As for elsa, it's another kind of charming, not in American way, I suppose.

As for the reason why I adore TOD is that it's different you know, and China elements included, but it's a shame that we can't understand what willie sang, I know it's anything goes which lyrics is Chinese, but I can only recognize a little even if I understand Chinese.

Idk If I've ever said this, but I like TOD because it gives us a look at 'Mercenary' Indy whose primary motivation was 'fortune and glory'.

The opening sequence is well done and quite interesting. The opening is good and it is the same from there. Seeing Indiana Jones dressed in a James Bond fashion was a nice touch.

Why I Like TOD The Best.

Temple of Doom to me has a darker flair then the rest of the films. I also like the reference to Star Wars . Willie please. Remember, If adventure has a name, it must be the Indycast.

Because I grew up with it. And this movie is about the closest I got to a horror movie.

I'm sure there's another thread about the Indy-girls, but for now I'd say my vote goes out to Elsa as well but I'll explain later.

There are options, yeah. (And some commentary!)

Well, I'll see. Just think it's a little odd to bump really old topics sometimes. But if it's alright or doesn't matter maybe I will, check out some of these.

We encourage reviving old threads as opposed to starting new ones that cover the same ground. This post from Finn here explains some of why:

We here in The Raven value our history however. We know there's lodes of good stuff buried here and it's going back to what could be considered ancient history - as far as measuring time in the Internet is concerned. By not abhoring necro-posting, we can see at least a fraction of it re-emerge from time to time.

So: a little bit of thread archaeology is worthwhile.

Anyway, back to your regularly scheduled praise of Temple of Doom, the installment of the series most willing to take some risks, even if not all of them paid off.

Just another thing I want to add why I love Temple Of Doom. Despite it's clearly darker, in almost every action sequence: the plane crash/raft, the fight in the bedroom, the trap in the cave, the fight in the temple and the fight with the guard to the return of the village, part of the Indy theme is always used. As if to give the audience a sense of hope that when they hear it they will know it's going to be alright.

I love the darker tone of this film and the bizarre setting. The last half hour is quite possibly the finest string of action sequences ever committed to film.

I love this movie because it's fun, it's different, and it has an unparalleled amount of over the top insane action! I also really liked Short Round. Willie was annoying, but she kind of grows on you.

Pretty much the only thing I don't really like about this movie is Indy weird laugh. He doesn't have it in any of the other films.

Remains a dear favorite of mine. First Indy movie I remember watching, when it came out on VHS. I was hooked.

I love Temple of Doom because of Cary Grant's performance and the awesome Scottish marching band. No wait, that's Gunga Din.

I would've liked The Temple of Doom more if it showed the Japanese military and navy in the Chinese scene. Take note that WWII began in Asia before it began in Europe, so the setting would've been right for the movie. Both Raiders of the Lost Ark and The Last Crusade had German uniforms, weapons, and vehicles. I really liked the fighter planes in the later one. Leaving out what was one of the most powerful navy and air force at that time is throwing away a perfect plot.

TOD is the superior sequel. It is it's own film. It doesn't try to be it's predecessor. I like the fact it takes risks. If they hadn't gone off public opinion, and, kept being original, we would have gotten better sequels after. I know many people love Last Crusade, but, I felt they were trying too hard to bring the feel of Raiders back and it on some level ruins it for me. Crystal Skull takes it a step further, and in the process, they lost all originality. Just my opinion

The opening bit was an homage to the Chinese gangsters depicted in some of the '30s/'40s serials*. It wasn't meant to be, "Tora! Tora! Tora!"

*Examples can be provided, if you want them.

This is a thread about LOVING "Temple of Doom". If you're dismayed that the film didn't show any Nips during its first 13 minutes, then here's a more appropriate thread for your bewildering opinions:
Why does everyone hate Temple Of Doom?

He isn't wrong that the conflict began when a full scale war erupted between Japan and China in 1937, but it was still a regional conflict at that point and not yet "a world war." Even once Germany invaded Poland in 1939 it was still two separate conflicts. It wasn't until Japan attacked Pearl Harbor that the two conflicts became part of one larger struggle that we refer to as WWII. So it is at least debatable.

I think TOD has great villains but I would have loved to see Indy battle the Imperial Japanese military on the big screen. A movie set during WWII would have been great but at this point Harrison is too old to portray the character at that stage of his life, even though Indy mentions in Skull that he was a part of missions in the Pacific Theater.
