Radar Blips - Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

The Year: 1989

The Players: Indiana Jones, Mrs.Spielberg and Data from Goonies.

The Take: $179 million

Is this the crappy one?: That distinction now belongs to Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. But yes, this is the one people complain about.

Why you should see it: There is plenty to enjoy here in between scenes of Willie screaming. You get hearts being ripped out and everything else associated with Mola Ram, an exciting mine cart chase, the collapsing bridge sequence, and of course the gross out dinner feast. Steven Spielberg has apologized for this movie, and though it was a step down from Raiders, at least this is still good ol classic Indy.
