CLASSIC INDY: 'THE TEMPLE OF DOOM' HITS 30!
Hard to believe, but its the 30th Anniversary of a certain fortune and glory seeking archeologist's entering that nightmare labyrinth The Temple of Doom this May. Controversial with the film-makers and the public at the time of release due to its violence and often grim subject matter, I've always thought it was a terrific and very satisfying sequel- regardless of the criticisms.

Being the first sequel for Indiana Jones, though actually set before the events of RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, TEMPLE OF DOOM proved that our intrepid hero was here to stay with audiences, featuring lots of ambitious sequences that the film-makers originally planned to used for the first film but had to cut out for various reasons. Future INDY sequels would prove a lot harder to satisfyingly conceive. Check out this great feature here: The Indiana Jones films that never were | Den of Geek
