A Prequel sequel? Maybe, huh..? Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984)

Temple of DoomIs there really a need to review it? I mean after all, it wasn’t nearly as interesting or compelling as the original or the sequels. Sure the supernatural aspect of pulling a beating heart out is cool, but not quite like the wrath of God tearing ass on a Nazi platoon.

Indy didn’t need a sidekick in the form of Batman’s Asian ‘Robin’, nor the typical screaming broad (Sorry Mrs. Spielberg)… While the film’s opening gave a glimmer of retro type adventure films of the Saturday matinée variety… it didn’t quite happen. Well, it’s a prequel, so maybe just categorize it under the ‘Adventures of Young Indiana Jones’ and leave it on the same shelf.
Doctor JonesKinda’ like Superman III & IV (ask Warner Bros.), just pretend it didn’t happen and move on the next sequel… Junior!
