The movie that taught me that inflatable life rafts are adequate substitutes for parachutes.

Good, but ultimately overrated.

The follow up (well, prequel if you want to be technical) to one of the greatest action spectacles of all time! It has great art direction and fantastic action sequences but the tone is incredibly inconsistent and I HATED the supporting characters!

As I rewatch the Indiana Jones saga, one which I never really rated as highly as other 80s franchises or Spielberg properties, I think this comment pretty much sums up how I feel about this film in particular. I find Short Round and Willie less intolerable than I used to, mainly because I think I understand what Spielberg was going for; using Short Round as a surrogate POV character for the children in the audience and Willie as a 30s damsel "screamer" a la Fay Ray, to contrast with Marion Ravenwood. That, and the fact that Spielberg probably couldn't take his eyes off Kate Capshaw at the time! But that doesn't change the fact that annoying characters, however intentional, are still annoying.
