In weak Chinese accent: "docta jones!"
Believe it or not Temple of Doom was the center of much controversy. Spielberg was criticized for the graphic content and the satanic element in the rituals. I can even remember Spielberg stating that he wouldn’t let his own kids watch the movie until they were old enough. I was 10 when it came out and therefore wasn’t allowed to see it. By the time I was old enough to rent it myself I was like “wtf? this movie is fucking lame”. By the time I was old enough to rent Deliverance, on the other hand, I was like “wft? this movie is really fucked up!”
First off, I want to correct my previous post, where I called that bitch character “Andy”, it was “Willie”. Doesn’t matter. Just sort of shows how much I gave a fuck about her.
luckily?, I was able to watch Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom when it first came out. I was nearly 6. The most vivid memory I took away from that first viewing was the evil dude reaching into that stupid guy’s chest and grabbing out his heart. That, and that scene when their rail-car jumped the track, and it was so obviously dummies in it. Nothing that bothered me though. Actually, the fake ass dummies bothered me more than the whole evil cult thing.
edit: I believe I saw the 1977 version of
Buck Rogers for the first time around then, and I swore it was the most awesome movie. So, that should help illustrate how little I thought of ToD.
