TV Tropes is a wiki dedicated to meticulously documenting recurring themes and plot devices across every kind of media. These tropes are each assigned 2011 Reddit meme names, even when it seems wildly inappropriate for the subject material.

"It's me and Steve!" Talk about killing nostalgia, we look back on a movie we all were fond of (except understandably Jamie) and realize it's one of the most racist blockbusters ever made. 1984's Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom is just a wild ride of racism and misogyny from start to finish.
