IMG_6369The man with the hat is back, and the MovieFilm boys are back with their commentary track for 1984’s Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom! The first Indy sequel reunited star Harrison Ford, director Steven Spielberg, and producer George Lucas, and took our intrepid archaeologist on a darker journey than anything audiences were expecting at the time, and while some aspects don’t hold up as well as we’d like, it’s still a rip-roaring good time that we’re excited to talk through and share our memories, observations, and anecdotes. You can hear the track on its own or watch the movie along with us, but either way, check it out via the embed below or at iTunes, Stitcher, iHeartRadio, or Spotify.
