Speaking with The Sun Sentinal, Spielberg said of the second movie Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom: “I wasn’t happy with Temple of Doom at all. It was too dark, too subterranean, and much too horrific. I thought it out-poltered Poltergeist. There’s not an ounce of my own personal feeling in Temple of Doom. The danger in making a sequel is that you can never satisfy everyone.”
Nevertheless, on why he thinks it’s the best Indiana Jones movie, Tarantino said: “[Spielberg] was full of piss and gauge, alright, on the case of back-to-back Jaws and Close Encounters, now he figures he could do no wrong, pushes the envelope, creates PG-13! The movie is so f***ing badass, it created a new level in the MPAA! Something Brian De Palma’s never been able to do as much as he’s tried!”
The Pulp Fiction director even believes it’s Spielberg’s second-best film after one he thinks is the best movie ever made.
