Vote away!

For the record, I like ROTLA or TOD the most (depends on which day you ask me), like KOCS the least (its horrifically terrible), and will be buying the box set happily.

As far as scores go, depending on which day you ask me I can like any of the original 3 the most! But honestly its been TOD I've listened to the most in the past 4 years, so I'll vote for that one.

I love Raiders and TOD the most.
I dislike Least Crusade the most, but KOTCS is as Jason says horrifically terrible, save a few genuine moment's here and there.

I think all 4 scores have many great moments, while LC has the least it still has them.

also it should be noted that people might change their minds once the few nice surprises are announced.
If it isn't high concept the it's not worth watching believed the pseudo superior one.

All 4 scores are GOOD, but the original 3 are GREAT, in my opinion. But they are each great in their own different ways.

The finale of KOTCS, the last two minutes, are as great as anything in what is perceived as the greatness of the first 3. John clearly had fun with that, and as a result so did I.

well one of the articles I read said there were some unannounced surprises. Once we know exactly what the set contains then some of us may decide the set is or isn't worth it at all. I for one would love a real piece about the music of the films, not some afterthought 3 or 4 min. thing, but a real exploration of the music, how it affects the film.

I bought the Superman Anthology on blu simply because I could get the original sound for Superman the Movie, I'll eventually get the Star Wars set, all 6 films, because of the extra's, but I'm waiting on the right price, so no doubt I'll end up with this set.

I won't get them at that price.

I refuse to pay any more then 15 Euro's for a single film. So 60 will be my limit for these.

Jaws is tempting as it's certainly one of my favorite all-time films, but I think I'd have to be pretty drunk to buy a BluRay.

well since I gave my dvd of Jaws away, I am currently without instant access to the film.

I'll get the boxset purely because I don't want to wait for the separate releases. I'll just wrap KotCS in duct tape and pretend it doesn't exist. Or I'll get someone to hypnotise me.

Anyway, I voted Raiders, film and score.

I gave my DVD of Jaws to my ex, years ago before she was me ex. Never got it back.

Thankfully it was the one with the stupid revamped 5.1 mix

I voted TOD. It has a scene were an Indian guy rips out someone's heart dude!

I wish this poll was where we could see who voted what. I wonder who said Raiders was their least favorite IJ score, I'm guessing Vosk.

Raiders has been my favourite Indy score ever since seeing the movie as a child. There's just too much greatness and awe in the Ark/Medallion themes, and the action cues are the stuff of nostalgic legend. I always preferred it over ToD being that Raiders is the much more dramatic and 'serious' of the two scores, matching the tone of the movie itself, as does ToD.

Yes, when I first started listening to it, I loved it, but then I started to get burned out on it, and never have been able to re-attain that love for it.

Raiders for both Favourite Film and Favourite Score, and Last Crusade for Least Favourite Film and Score....not that I dislike Last Crusade in the slightest - far from it - I just don't think it is as good as the other three.

It's all played out for me as well, I barely play at all anymore; doesn't mean I'm going to say it's the worst of the bunch.

This is so wrong. Surely TLC is better film than KOTCS, beats also TOD which is kind of mess.
I still love TOD because it brought us a brilliant score.

Raiders is the best film and score, hands down. They both do more with less.

Kingdom is the worst film (obviously) and Last Crusade is the worst score.

I won't be buying the set because I don't own Blu-Ray player.

No, I don't agree, I have stated in the past why Least Crusade doesn't work well for me. In no universe is it a better film than TOD!
