    He scare me too. I like the part when he goes through his secret trap door laughing as Indiana Jones tries to get him.

    he's like an over the top Bond villain. TOD is almost like a horror movie with action.

    Mola Ram is so good as a villain. I like it when Willie crosses the bridge and screams when she sees him and he just says "Welcome" [face_laugh][face_laugh]

    I love the fact that he's the only leader of the villain faction who actually gets to be a major character.

    You knew Indy was never going to fight Hitler, or Stalin. Those are real people, their lives are dictated by history, so the best Indy can do is defeat a group of their minions from time to time. But with Mola Ram, Indy (okay, and Shorty and Willie and Captain Blunburrt and his men) gets to actually win not just the battle, but the war. Cut off the head of the snake and burn the entire body, and liberate all their captives.

    It makes a nice satisfying victory on a level that you couldn't have had in the other movies.

    I watch this again recently. I love it so much. One thing I notice is that when they come to Pankot Palace, Indiana is heard shouting "Shorty where's my razor?" - At first you might think that this is just a funny line but it is needed to explain why Indiana does not shave for dinner which he would as a gentleman normally. If he had shaved for the dinner, he wouldn't be able to have the classical unshaven look going to the Temple of Doom shortly afterwards.

    I love the "she's not coming. I can't believe I'm not going." line. Then the guy seemingly comes out of the wall tapestry. The whole movie is very dream like.

    This is my favourite still photo of Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones. I think it just capture the character perfectly in a single shot.

    I'm curious, does anyone view The Lost World: Jurassic Park in a way similar to Temple of Doom? They're both darker Spielberg follow-ups that are very different and not as universally beloved as their predecessors, which has resulted in a more mixed reception but it still has a passionate fanbase still willing to defend it from criticism. Am I the only one who sees the similarities?

    I think TOD is way better.

    Temple of Doom was always my favourite as a kid. I loved the dynamic between Indy, Willy and shortround. Plus the setting was really unique for the series.

    Has anyone played the TOD arcade game? It's fun.

    The only game I play recently for Indiana Jones is the Indiana Jones LEGO game, which is quite good.
