: Don't buy into what the so-call critics says about it. Be your own judge. If I follow every lamming crittics review, I'd be watching dozens of stupid Oscar flicks. When Star Wars was first released every Critics and their mothers was bad-mouthing it! I.J-TD is the best to me and I like it better then the Last Crusade. I think that movie has a sorry ending. The lead female shouldn't have to die like that.
: : It took me about 2 years after I first saw Temple of Doom (as a 11yr old) to realize I didn't like it as much as the first. But I think it's not fair to call it a bad movie as some people have. Time (I think) called it one of the 10 worst action films of all time! There were a lot of stregths to the film especially the performance of MOLA RAM which belongs in the villians hall of fame.
: : I guess it is just so dwarfed by it's predicessor.
I think temple of Doom was better than last Crusade. also, but for different reasons. Don't get me wrong, I love all 3 movies, but TOD was paced so well that it never let up with the edge of your seat tension. i thought last Crusade started good but was sort of anti-climatic, and the Nazis were so laughable it was pathetic. remeber the Nazis in Raiders? They were much more sinister and REAL than the ones in Last Crusade. Plus, Last Crusade just looked so pretty. It looked almost like a film TRYING to look like it takes place in the 1930s instead of a movie that takes place in the 1930s. I'm not sure if you all follow me or not. But it's just my opinion. Never the less, I can't wait for a new Indy movie. I think the series needs a better ending than the one Last Crusade left us with.
