Are you...ok after watching Temple of Doom? Because that movie is...weird to say the least. I'd actually forgotten about the hitting Shorty thing until I saw you post about it. I mean I understand criticisms of the alien stuff in Crystal Skull but I still love that movie because of the emotional stuff with Indy and Marion but yeah Temple of Doom is...just weird and CREEPY AS HELL
I’m okay I mean, it was Indy so I had difficulty genuinely not enjoying it, but there were parts where I was genuinely really creeped out and unlike the other ones where the weirdness is semi-explained, this time there was just … nothing made sense. There was no explanation, weird scary things just HAPPENED and you had to accept them. And it was also sorta low-key racist, you know?
Also, in general, I don’t like child abuse, so that stuff with the mine and the part where he hits Shorty across the face, mind control or no, was really … erch. I mean I didn’t dislike it as a general thing in the context of the movie but it made me kind of uncomfortable and IT BROKE MY HEART WHEN TEENY BABY LOOKED UP AT HIM WITH WIDE EYES OH NO wow that part was terrible it killed me
but I’m fine everything’s fine
my question really is where the hell Shorty is in the other ones I mean he was practically Indy’s adopted kid
