For me, it's all about the village scene where Indy translates the story of the missing stone.

Despite the broad attempts to inject comedy, there's a certain weight to Ford's performance in TOD. I also like the reluctant hero aspect of it, and the fact that it's filled with iconic Indy moments (ie. rope bridge; the mine cart slowing revealing Indy to the Thuggee guard; etc.)

It was a bold move to follow Raiders with such a dramatic departure. Not everything works or holds up 20 years later, but it's definitely a worthy entry.

The opening scene in Bejing is well worth the price of admission. That's not the only reason I love it. There are very few moments in the Indy movies I don't like.

"March of the Slave Children" is nothing compared to "Belly of the Steel Beast"

ough... you right

But did you notice, in the extended edition it seems to has no name ...and on "John Williams Greatest Hits 1969-1999" it's even called "Parade Of The Slave Children" ... veeery confusing

yes you're right, but in the official John Williams Songbook it's definitely called "March", though it's the same song

(scroll down a bit to the tracklist)

I don't know why there are so many names for one song; but let's call it furthermore "Slave Children's Crusade" ... sorry about the confusion

I liked the story in Temple Of Doom but I didn't like when Molo Ram pulled that guy's heart out like why and when Indy turned bad like why did they make Indy like that anyway I think it is a good Indy movie and Short Round is brilliant

One word- Willie! It wouldn't have worked for Raiders, but it was fun to have someone who is the exact opposite of Indy get dragged along for the ride. It would be fun for Kate Capshaw have a little cameo in Indy V, if it gets made. She added a lot of humor to an otherwise dark movie. And without her, we wouldn't have "We are going to die! " Ha!

Cheers! There are many things that keep Temple off the junk heap. But it was similar to how they responded to Planet of the Apes. Even though it made money they began to "go cheap" on the sequel/prequel...from axing the London Symphony, to cutting development time. The list goes on. Thankfully, Indy's shoulders were broad enough to carry the extra weight.


It's kind of funny how people who "love it" only post in the hate thread though...

Maybe because a lot of us never realized this one existed. It was comatose for almost two years!

Harrison's Indy is the consistent factor. Shoulders broad enough also to keep KOTCS from completely sinking.

It doesn't make much sense for a follow-up to a successful movie to have less love bestowed upon it by it's creators . The Apes were a good example of diminishing production input and cash. They could use the excuse that by the end of the second film they'd written themselves into a corner, and Heston didn't even want to be a part of that movie in the first place.

There's little excuse for TOD being perceived as a lesser project. The star was still there, as were the main creative force. We know that production was beset by difficulties, both personal and political.

Though, through it all, there is Indy. And a story that was strangely compelling, and one that left me wanting more, and wanting to know more.

Although I never think of TOD as being a great Indy movie, there are still many moments I thoroughly enjoy... be it the whole "no one's flying the plane" scene, (which is one of the best Indy homages to Hollywood movies of the 30's IMHO)... to the entire 'Short Round Helps' scene, which is a great piece of entertaining nonsense (in the best possible way). And I still love that teaser poster which hangs proudly in my home cinema.
