  1. First and third: awesome.

    Second and fourth: pitiful.

    I haven’t been able to summon the courage to watch the fourth one yet!

    #4 — it sucks as well.

    I liked ToD – it had a different ‘feel’ to it than RotLA or LC but it wasn’t far away from either.

    KotCS sucked gopher weenies.

    I liked all of them. Raiders is my all-time favorite movie. I love bigger-than-life action adventures so I’m a little biased.

    My favorite part of Temple of Doom was watching for the first time at a double-header with Search for Spock at the theater in downtown Iwakuni, Japan, city of my birth. (The links are the posters I bought in the lobby.) My second most favorite thing about the movie was the “Anything Goes” musical number, but that’s it.

    I was horrified at the violence, but understood it completely, feeling utterly capable of ripping someone’s heart out with my bare fingers after only 20 minutes of Kate Capshaw’s shreiking, whining inanity. Of course, that would have been after I ripped her head off her shoulders and flung it off one of the verdantly covered cliffs. The flora would have drowned the noise of her mouth still running as her noggin sailed toward the water.

    Rob, while I may not have “Raiders” as #1 it’s darn close.

    Yeah, Capshaw’s incessant shrieking……………argh.

    It’s the kids. Sure, they’re cute an’ all and I understand the marketing impulse, but really – they don’t belong in the story.

  9. Rob says:

    I’ve seen it so many times, Mr B, that I’m starting to see the flaws … but it was perfect the first few hundred times. 🙂

  10. Kate P says:

    Yeah, well, square the suckiness and you get #4.

    The big problem with Temple of Doom was that the opening sequence wrote checks the rest of the movie couldn’t come close to cashing… so I just watch the first ten minutes.

    I kind of wish Red Letter Media would rip ToD apart the way he crushed Eps 1-3. After all, they’re all prequels, right?
