Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom Academy Award Winner! Academy Award Nomination! 

By Tom Keogh

The Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford) adventure after Raiders of the Lost Ark is more violent than its predecessor, but also looser, more imaginative, and finally more satisfying. Still organized like a series of connected cliffhangers, the story (set 10 years before Raiders) involves Indy's attempted rescue of stolen children from a pagan cult. Director Steven Spielberg draws upon sundry cinematic influences, particularly Gunga Din, for an air of classic adventure, though one can also find traces of John Wayne movies in Jones's relationship with a woman (Kate Capshaw) who's come along for the bumpy ride. The film's opening bit, in which the antidote to a poison Jones has swallowed keeps bouncing around a nightclub just out of his reach, is a blast.

Academy Awards

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom received an Academy Awards for Special Visual Effects (Dennis Muren, Michael McAlister, Lorne Peterson, George Gibbs). It also received a nomination for Music Scoring Awards (Best Original Score; John Williams).
