    Default Re: Temple Of Doom Fans

    I Love TOD and I am not afraid to say it... Raiders is the better movie sure.. But it was TOD that turned me into a HUGE Indy fan... Perfect film that came along at the perfect age in my life. Love it! Raiders and TOD are both in my top 10 action films of all time. TOD is leaps and bounds better then TLC and obviously KotCS.

    Well all that is left to say is "Hold onto your potatoes".

    I was maybe 2 or 3 when I saw it for the first time. Totally blown away at that age and it's mark has definitely been permanent.

    And I mentioned before I think TOD has the best score of the series, but especially the Slave Children's Crusade theme. Can't put into words how much I love that theme. I honestly prefer it to the main Indy theme, which I don't say lightly.

    No argument there on the score. I remember playing the cassette so much that I rubbed the words off. I used to play the Raiders LP over and over again, as well. Good times.

    The days of cassettes, good times. So many I wore out to the point they'd no longer play.

    I think the additions Williams made to the score for TOD shine. However, the reuse of themes, from Raiders, in addition to the above mentioned track (and others) is what probably makes the TOD score stand out, for me. Also, the usage of those themes in a darker (cinematography and feel) movie add to the emotional tug.
    What an incredible smell you've discovered!

    The main Indy theme, or Raiders march ( see what I did there) is definitely a great composition. But I've always loved Marion's theme better. Just beautiful. Really tugs on the hearts strings. But yeah, the slave children's Indy version just before he frees them all is pretty powerful too.
    What can I say... John Williams - Magician imo

    He's done a lot of incredible scores for sure. Hard to imagine movies without his work.

    YES!

    TOD has been and will always be my favorite Indy film with Mola as my favorite villain since childhood. HE RIPS OUT PEOPLE'S HEARTS!!!
