If this is redundant, please feel free to point me in the right direction. I didn't see anything covering this topic in the index. The music during Yoda's duel with Dooku has always bothered me and I had been meaning to start this topic for quite some time. Ever since my second viewing of the film (I say second viewing, because the crowd's cheering during the first drowned out the music) I have felt that the music during the duel didn't quite feel as though it belonged, but I could never put my finger on it. A few months (weeks?) later, 20th Century Fox released a brilliant promotional commercial featuring the Yoda duel that was a parody of Spiderman. Do you remember that one? I am sure that you do. How could you forget it. The Spiderman music (or something eerily similar) played as the commercial instructed us to take a "swing" with this years biggest action hero. Cut to Yoda. There is dead silence as his saber floats from his belt to his hand. The only sound that can be heard is the click of the saber, and the sweet hum of its extended blade. As Yoda lunges, the upbeat Star Wars fanfare blasts, and all of our adrenaline starts to rush. The commercial is pure excitement and pure fun. It was, simply, pure Star Wars - very campy. The actually film itself seems to lack this fun quality that the television spot possessed. I blame the music. The tone was too somber. Think about it, this was Yoda's biggest moment, and the crowd was in a frenzy. In my mind, the music should have matched that frenzied pitch. I can understand what Mr. Williams was doing, he was trying to give the duel an epic feel, but did it work? Imagine Episode I's Duel of the Fates without a frantic track. Its not nearly as exciting of a battle, is it? That's the exact same way that I feel while watching the Yoda battle. To me, the scene should not be about an epic duel, it should be about a fun one. Afterall, the scene was designed to be a crowd pleaser. This is evident in all its aspects - starting with Yoda casting a shadow as he entered the hangar. Initially, the duel was a blast, but now a lot of the novelty has worn off. I still love it, but I find myself having more fun watching that television spot. Does anyone else feel the same way? Mace Windy, yes, there is a draft in here! GK edit: Fixed title.
