temple of doom seems to be the least favorite of most people – speilberg among them. but to me it’s the best of the lot. it goes further on both extremes than either of the other films – it is darker in the temple scenes and also has more of a screwball comedic element throughout. i can understand how some would dislike the lead lady or “shorty,” but i thought both of them were good and only as annoying as necessary. to me it’s also the purest adventure film of the trilogy and provides the best ride.
