    RAIDERS
    Call me crazy but my favorite parts of the score are the first three cues, before the Indy theme even appears.
     
    It contains some of JW most inventive and exotic orchestration.
    No real themes, but totally gripping!

    Funny enough, I believe the exposition scene in Raiders is my favorite scene in all of the movies.
     
    4 guys in suits talking about the Ark of the Covenant, and it couldn't be any more exhilarating.  Perfect film.

    I cannot disagree more. Considering Manhattan fought for America in the Vietnam War, there is no way he would be considered not-American and enough of an external threat to unite the world. The space squid is important because it has no nationalism associated with it at all, it is an enigma, and could therefore shock the world into working together for a time. Manhattan would have been looked at as an extension of America and so it wouldn't work. The change doesn't hold up to logic.
     
    He's certainly powerful enough, and you could argue the attack on American soil would help sway those opinions, but there is no way someone wouldn't think it was part of some American conspiracy to control things. Alan Moore doesn't make those kinds of mistakes. His stories should never be adapted for the screen. They are designed to take apart what comics are. By their very nature, they are subverting a different medium, so they do not transfer well at all, or ever.

    Romão reacted to rough cut in DC Cinematic Universe Thread   
    When Zack Snyder says that this is his original vision, I call him a liar on that.
     
    He has 20/20 hindsight on what people complained about the released cut. Of course he’s going to change as much of that as possible - be it his “original” vision or not.
     
    Business-wise it makes sense, but his original vision it is not.

    Jackie Brown.
     
    I had some misgivings during the very first scene, but obviously it was mostly amazing. Everyone is just great and the story is fascinating too, though I do think I want a re-watch. This was also the first time I needed time to like Samuel Jackson’s character and I’ll be sure to keep an eye out for anything with Pam Grier and Robert Forster in it.
    And the music was obviously great too. Tarantino is awesome.

    I couldn't find the Tadlow version of this track on Youtube, but this moment has always struck as particularly effective in evoking the ruthlessness of the desert:
     
     
    This score is much much more than the main theme
     
    Lion in Winter, not The Wind and the Lion  (another terrific score, though)

    Masada (the original album, if you can find it). Although it is an album re-recording, it is much much better than the expanded score

    I also particularly love "How Beautiful you Make Me" and "To Rome". You can almost feel the cold draft blowing through the stone corridors of the castle. What a score, Barry took an absolute tone perfect aproach

    Exactly!
    Yes, yes, @Bespin; to Romāo, you listen!
    Fans of Bond, and especially YOLT, probably had a giant "What the f**k?!" moment, when they heard this.
    MAIN TITLE, ELEANOR'S ARRIVAL, and WE'RE JUNGLE CREATURES contain passages of unrivalled Barry power and beauty. It's a stonker of a score, and it fully deserved its Oscar.
