    The endless flood of water that continues to chase them long after the water tank would have been emptied was a bit silly.

      I never once heard people calling it bad until fairly recently, like in the last 5-10 years.
      Maybe it's because Spielberg came out in an interview and said he hates it because it's not about israelites vs nazis like the other ones.

        That's not an excuse. We see how large the tank is but the flood keeps going even after they pass through areas with "bottomless" pits. It would be better if the scene started with an underground reservoir breaking open or a similar situation, so we don't know how little water there actually is.

          This suggests a cool plot point too, that maybe the dammed an important river or stream that fed the crops from further up the mountain range via underground aquifers.

          Releasing the water is like releasing the fury of nature which wipes out the mines as it travels back to it's proper area. Indy and Co's job is just to keep ahead if it long enough to for it to "return home".

          Even when they arrive they kinda follow the flow of water from the mountains in their raft, but the water in the lower river is "bad" for some reason. Maybe tailings from the mines getting mixed in?

          This segues better with the nature of the stones, that they're more protective. When they go missing it's a sign that unnatural practices are at work deeper in the mountain. When they're just sitting in a little village, everything is as it should be. It works with Indy's ongoing question about what the correct thing to do with artifacts is. Clearly some can't be left laying around, others are important fonts of knowledge. Some should be left where they are. Some need to be relocated and "re-buried" - like the Ark.

      It's probably because of that thing about how Lucas planned that Indy fricked marion when she was 11
      but they settled on 15

      I like them all but temple of doom is the one that really sticks out in my head the most. Probably because I saw at least some of it when I was like 4 or 5 and the scene with the dude getting his heart ripped out and eaten stuck with me for life. But when i watched them all when I was like 11-12 or so lots of scenes in temple of doom stuck with me more than raiders and especially crusade. I still remember a lot of them vividly even now... opening bar scene shootout, the car chase and plane escape, the guys sneaking out the plane, the moronic jumping out of the plane on an inflatable raft, getting to the village, the eyeball dinner

      one that really made an impression was when the walls were closing in and he gets actually really fricking angry at willie for not wanting to put her hand in the thing and pull the lever when he and short round are like inches away from being flattened. He really doesn't usually get that angry or frustrated in the entire series. It was big.

      It appears that I've mostly forgotten the second half of the movie with the exception of the minecart and the guy getting eaten by the alligators at the end.
      It's been well over a decade since I last saw any of the movies.

    the reasons why certain fairly good movies (Spiderman 3, the Cable Guy) are designated as "bad" usually has to do with the filmmaker transgressing some rules Hollywood israelites don't like
    In this case, the content of Temple of Doom forced the introduction of the PG13 rating which severely hindered the grosses of many subsequent films.

    Temple of Doom is still a good film but it's a shift away from the solo treasure hunting vibe. Picture if somewhere around the 3rd or 4th Mission Impossible the movie shifted to TC in one basic location, added a kid and pumped up the comedy a bit. Still might be a decent film but it's going to make audiences go wtf just a little bit.
    ToD still holds up way better for modern viewing but I think that's due to more films having it's same lighter adventure/action vibe

      I forgot to add - Temple does have the best villain in Mola Ram. The other 2 have great action set pieces on location, whereas the bulk of Temple's action takes place on amazing sets on soundstages. Temple is my least favorite of the three, but it's still a fun movie to watch. Raiders is unmatched, and Connery just steals Crusade so hard, and Temple has too much of the obnoxious woman screaming (and I've met her, she's obnoxious in real life too).

      It starts out well but the last half is unfiltered action adventure schlock, especially the mining cart ride. Truly awful.

    It's the best one even without considering it is the most unique. It's got a real adventure of the week feel to it. You believe Indiana Jones was out there living life with this picture. Raider is great, but Crusade, Crystal Skull, and Dial of Destiny are all trying to be Raiders again and it sucks

    I agree, it's honestly my favorite of the three.
    It has a great energy to it, it's spooky, has lots of iconic moments, and Indy is at his most heroic.
    In Raiders he feels like an amoral government agent who just kills whoever gets in his way. Yes he's against the Nazis, but the Nazis in the movie don't really do enough evil stuff to justify Indy's indiscriminate violence, the movie really leans on the historical context. Whereas in Doom he's up against extremely evil people, they cause villages to starve, they kidnap children, and they have plans for world domination. Everything Indy does in the movie is unambiguously good. That's not to say that immoral or ambiguous protagonists are bad, it just doesn't work in a popcorn adventure movie. Crusade at least added some stuff like the book burning scene to show the Nazis being evil, but a lot of scenes felt too wacky/cartoonish for my taste.

    Why does it open with a weird non-diagetic musical number? If it was going to open with a musical number in the night club with a big dance routine that's fine, but why have the camera go into the musical dimension?

    Mola Ram is easily the best villain in the series, though. The intro in China is also fan-fricking-tastic.

    Temple of Doom isn't bad. It's good. Just not as a good as Raiders and Crusade.
    >Not a globe trotting adventure
    >Willie Scott fricking sucks and is not only a liability to Indy, but annoying to the audience
    >Short Round is only kinda annoying and kids don't belong in Indy movies
    >Indy's goal is to rescue kids: see above
    >Indians are disgusting demon worshippers and nobody wants to save them
    That's really it. Everything else in the movie is great but the general premise is not compelling for an Indy film and it cannot be understated how much Willie and Short Round drag the film down.

    There is one contrarian who tries to shill for it as the "best movie b-because he just is!"
    Which makes the point of the thread obsolete.
    I'd say it's better than Last Crusade, but the Last Crusade has Sean Connery and better girl.

          It's so mind numbingly boring and Mangold can't shoot action for shit. At some point in history, film schools will compare the action in Spielberg's saga vs Dial. He somehow managed to pick the worst angles at times.

            They probably already do this anyway. Spielberg, Cameron and Woo are basically the only directors still working who know how to deliver top tier action.

    It was a little dark compared to the others, but regardless it had defining moments people definitely remember when they think of classic Indy.

    Also this Spielisraelite movie wasn't as well received as it should have been, and had a lot of uncanny similarities.

    I love them both.

        I honestly never understood why it got such a bad rap. It had some pretty cool shit in it, was a good adventure movie with appeal to kids, and pretty decent Sherlock Holmes story to boot. Some of the effects were also cutting edge at the time:

        The hallucinations were a great excuse for some tripped out shit.

    It's the only Indy movie worth a damn. It's weird, magical, kind of gross in a Alice in Wonderland fairy tale kind of way. Meanwhile the other films are just typical Hollywood slop, globetrotting Nazi-killing action with very little strange mysticism. Raiders and Crusade are the same movie in my head. One has Sean Connory the other doesn't.

    Because it dared to do the worst thing possible a blockbuster sequel can do:
    It was different than the first movie, so everyone got their panties in a twist.

    It's the best of the trilogy, with the right balance of adventure, interesting characters and set-pieces. But I'm fully aware why people dislike it, for it has its issues and sticks out in the whole fricking franchise, not just the trilogy itself
