    Raiders for me.

    One thing I love about it is that all through the start of the film, with the traps and idols, there isn't a single statment of the Raider's March, and that the first time we ever hear it is when Indy is running away from a situation he's got caught in.

    Says something about Indy's character, I think.

    Soon we will have new Indy score. One far younger and more powerful.

    According to IMDB:

    "The music playing in the scene where Indy meets Adolf Hitler is adapted from the "Königgrätzer Marsch" by Johann Gottfried Piefke (1815-1884)."

    Raiders Of the Lost Ark is a classic. It has the first and strongest rendition of the Raider's March and the beautifully haunting Ark Theme. The Map Room piece is probably one of the greatest pieces of music ever! But Raiders in my opinion has too many action cues that go nowhere and I found Marion's Theme to be too sappy. I don't know why it reminds me of Leia's Theme so much.
    I didn't care too much for Temple of Doom except for the Mine Car Chase music. The rest was pretty snoresville to me.
    IMO I think The Last Crusade is the best out of the three. The theme for the Holy Grail is the pinnacle of all movie music and the Nazi theme was way better than the stormtrooper sounding music from Raiders. I guess I prefer music with stronger themes rather than ambient or random action cues. But that's just my opinion. [face_peace]

    Raiders of the Lost Ark. So much great stuff. Great listening, and it absolutely defines its movie, which simply could not reach the same level without it. Williams at his finest.

    I voted for Raiders of the Lost Ark, just because it's the one I'm most familiar with. Mind you I'd love to get more familiar with the other two, but unfortunately the versions of the soundtracks we have already just seem like somebody cruelly teasing you with just a brief glimpse of brilliance, which just makes me cross. Waah! See?

    I love 'em all but if I had to rank them:

    1. The Last Crusade
    2. Raiders of the Lost Ark
    3. Temple of Doom


    I have to see Krystal Skull Kingdom to reevaulate it now.

    Of course, Raiders March. Second would be the Cantonese version of Anything Goes and third is Only The Penitent Man Will Pass.

    I still rank them:

    1. Raiders
    2. Temple
    3. Last Crusade
    4. Crystal Skull

    Although my fondness for Crystal Skull has gone up recently after having been able to hear some of the unreleased music from the film.

    The Raiders theme. It's just too perfectly eerie. [face_hypnotized]
