    I think the strength of this film is evident when every single dissent I've read would actively make the film worse. Reminds me of reading some of the Boyhood dissents, "no, the film you want would...

    Yeah no kidding. Horror fans are a very particular brand of weirdo and they are going to shit a brick if it's not Brad Dourif.

    Indiana Jones & the Temple of Doom is awesome, endlessly rewatchable, and the political incorrectness only makes the movie more dangerous and interesting. It's The Searchers of Indiana Jones movies.
