The Raiders of the Lost Ark is one of Spielberg’s best-known movies. The movie introduced Harrison Ford as the whip-cracking, no-nonsense artefact hunter who took on the Nazis headfirst, and was loved by absolutely everyone. The same could not be said about his second adventure, The Temple of Doom, however, as reviews were starkly less-favourable. Spielberg himself spoke up years later about how he wasn’t “happy” with how the film turned out.
Spielberg went a different direction with the sequel, utilising a darker, moodier tone, leaving fans and critics disappointed.
Hitting out about the film, Spielberg said: “I wasn’t happy with the second film at all.
“It was too dark, too subterranean, and much too horrific. I thought it out-poltered Poltergeist.”
Indeed, the horror scenes in the film are some of the standout moments from the movie.

Last year it was announced a fifth Indy movie is on the way to cinema screens, with Ford reprising his role yet again.
No plot details have yet been given for the film, but rumours have recently surfaced suggesting it will be touching upon the death of Sean Connery.
Connery starred in The Last Crusade as Indiana’s father, Dr Henry Jones Sr.
The actor passed away on October 31, 2020, in his sleep. A cause of death was not announced.
With Indy’s father’s death, there is reported to be a tribute scene in the upcoming Indiana Jones 5 to commemorate Connery’s life.
Crystal Skull introduced Indy’s son, Mutt, who was played by Shia LaBeouf.
During the film, Mutt was positioned as the next logical protagonist for the franchise, taking over from his father, with the iconic moment where he picked up the rogue’s famous hat.
LaBeouf’s presence in Indiana Jones 5 has not yet been confirmed.
