Boy. Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom is an incredibly stupid movie.
No plot! A hacked-together adventure. Racist claptrap. Whining blonde who added nothing to the story. Cute street kid who added nothing to the story. Plot holes big enough to fly a Ford Trimotor through. The sexual tension of two junior high kids on a class field trip. It was all the rage in 1984 because of the chilled monkey brains and the heart surgery and the subterranean roller coaster ride but that shit doesn't last.
I could get behind a good movie about a modern emergence of the Thuggee. This wasn't it.
