Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984) – 4.5/5

Overrated crap.

Just kidding. This movie was great! Probably one of the best action films ever made. Non-stop action from the very beginning. And that scene in the temple with the human sacrifice was so disturbing. This is a PG movie?

This, along with Raiders of the Lost Ark, further prove something that I’ve long suspected about Spielberg: he loves horror. He loves to frighten and disturb. Just like the mummy/snake scene in Lost Ark, there’s really no good reason for the sacrifice scene to be as disturbing as it is, or the insect scene to be as freaky, but both are because Spielberg wants to genuinely scare the hell out of his audience, and he does so quite well. I was freaked out. Well done.
