Anyone else think that beethoven's 5th symphony would make awesome sabre-duel music?

    I do..it's on a level with DOTF for raw fast-paced energy, IMO.

    I like the way you think... but no. Beet's 5th has been used for so many other stuff.

    Like I said in another post, John Williams still has some solid work ahead of him.

    Well, to me, Allegro con brio and Allegro are awesome sabre-battle music. Very energetic..and I'm not saying use them in II or III, just are these good sabre-battle pieces?

    If they weren't so familiar to me, I'd say they'd be great. :)

    I think it would be good for a space battle.

    Allegro con brio starts too slowly, and is not that fast paced I feel. I think the 2nd movement of the 9th could work (as also used in A Clockwork Orange)

    The 4th movement of the 5th is too uplifting and major for a fight scene, although it is a fantastic piece of music

    I think the entire work is too strong and attention-grabbing to be used as movie music. Film scores should generally be what Satie called "wallpaper music" - music that just disappears into the background. DotF was unusually attention-grabbing for a film score. Any works of Beethoven would about ten times as attention-grabbing, and would probably distract audiences from the film.
