According to Cinema Blend on Aug. 27, the director of "The Avengers", Joss Whedon, had a particular complaint in regards to the movie "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom". It appears that Whedon's pet peeve is in regards to Steven Spielberg's scene involving a reference to his first film, "Raiders of the Lost Ark", where in both cases Harrison Ford's Indiana Jones character faces armed swordsmen with and without a gun.
"You know that thing in Temple of Doom where they revisit the shooting trick?... That's what you don't want. And I feel that's what all of culture is becoming -- it's becoming that moment".
Whedon only sees it as a distraction from the context of the movie and would only make sense to someone if they had seen Spielberg's first film.
Also, Whedon made reference to George Lucas' "Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back" film where the cliffhanger entailed the lack of and ending. It seems that Whedon has a pet peeve in regards to films lacking a conclusion. So basically, the film was more of a "to be continued" situation where one would have to wait longer than a week in comparison to a TV series.
"Well, it’s not an ending. It’s a Come Back Next Week, or in three years. And that upsets me. I go to movies expecting to have a whole experience. If I want a movie that doesn't end I’ll go to a French movie. That’s a betrayal of trust to me. A movie has to be complete within itself, it can’t just build off the first one or play variations".
