Home Theater New: Perhaps the greatest adventure movie of all time – thirsty for blood, fun and amazing action firework – Cinematic News

Many adventure movie fans love the predecessor, others love the successor – for FILMSTARTS editor Daniel, “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom” is the highlight of the series, and maybe the whole genre. Now, a novelty in the limited 4K edition.

The most important

+++ Opinion +++

Fortunately, tastes vary and therefore are certainly partly responsible for the infinite variety that has existed in cinema after more than 100 years. When it comes to the best adventure movies in the history of the screen, most moviegoers agree on one thing: Indiana Jones’s bold stories are some of the great milestones in the genre. The fact that all three of the first three are represented in the large FILMSTARTS ranking of the best adventure films of all time should be proof enough of this. While some have taken to heart the original “Raiders of the Lost Ark” (1st place) and many, many others see “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade” (8th) at the top, for me nothing beats the often criminally underrated “Indiana Jones” and the Temple of Doom “(12th place).

A year after the world premiere of the 4K series, individual films appear separately for the first time – in a limited steel book edition, each with an original cover theme.

In June 2021, we already had our eye on 4K versions of “Indiana Jones” movies and couldn’t stop going crazy, which naturally made the set on our 2021 home theater hit list at the end of the year. However, some Indy fans were concerned from the start with the box’s modern minimalist design and missed out on the movies’ legendary original artwork – but that’s exactly what it’s finally available in a new edition!

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom: The Ultimate Adventure

“Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom” is a raging Hollywood spectacle of superlatives that would not be possible today – studios and filmmakers are too careful to adapt their stories to one age or another for a movie premiere and not to go beyond the often narrow frames. After all, the usually high production costs have to be recovered! Steven Spielberg However, he did not get stuck in a creative corset with “Indiana Jones 2” and he uncompromisingly realized his vision and even once shifted the MPAA, which is responsible for the US age rating, to create a completely new rating for his film – the PG-13 rating.

Regardless of whether they are bullies pierced with a burning skewer skewer, torn hearts, or a gala dinner during which eyeball soup, live snakes and greedily devoured brains are greedily eaten – all these are rarely seen in today’s entertainment adventure film directed primarily to a young audience. This is not the only reason why the “Temple of Death” is probably so legendary. And of course because of the incredibly creative endless action fireworks that don’t give you a second to take a deep breath.

From Indiana Jones 1-3: The Greatest Adventure Movies of All Time

It starts with the legendary opening song that culminates in a wonderfully wild brawl that heralds a chase to the heights – all the way to our title character, played by Harrison Ford, along with Shorty’s sidekick (Ke Huy Quan) and Willie’s love interest (Kate Capshaw) finally he jumps out of the flying plane with the rubber boat (!) and everything continues in the raging river. And this is just the beginning of the movie – which is nothing compared to the groundbreaking, infinitely varied finale!

But perhaps the greatest secret strength of Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom is that Steven Spielberg keeps his audience from lazing around the entire show. Because Harrison Ford not only shines as an irresistible, incurable wizard, but above all, is a lot of fun to interact with two companions.

But in between all the exciting events that go on without interruption, there’s one scene that doesn’t crash, my highlight of the film: when Indy and Willie just wait for the other one to take a decisive step towards their power. . Your worst enemy isn’t your ugly Shanghai gang boss or a sinister victim cult, but your goddamn pride. Because, as befits the greatest heroes, they are not perfect and indestructible – they are only human.
