  1. Well...this stinks. http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=56314 ADMIN NOTE: Click here to jump to the point in the thread where the film was confirmed. http://www.jwfan.com/forums/index.php?/topic/19778-official-indiana-jones-5-thread-spielberg-and-ford-confirmed-opening-july-19-2019/&do=findComment&comment=1232124
  2. Hi everyone, first time poster here! I'm writing an academic paper on how Williams approaches scoring gender, and using KoCS as my main case study. Wondering what everyone's thoughts are on how it sits within the canon of the Indy scores? Personally, I enjoy Irina's theme but its presentation of her as some femme fatale style figure seems somewhat reductive(?). Especially when compared to Dr. Schneider in Crusade! The Crystal Skull motifs are very hypnotic, but don't compare to the Ark or Grail theme. The variations of the theme when linked to Mutt are interesting, it seems as
  3. If MM gets to produce remastered and expanded soundtrack albums of all Indy films, what would he have to improve on the earlier releases in order to end up with the definitive presentations?
  4. I initially thought it was my complete disappointment with the film that impacted my appreciation of this score. I’d come back to the ost hoping to finally connect with it. It’s a friggin’ John Williams Indiana Jones score for crying out loud! But to me both the OST and the Recording Sessions lacked the terrific momentum that the other three releases had (99% the fault of the film I believe!) Half the ost release seemed to focus on skull theme. Which is a great theme. But I needed other material to balance it out. Imagine if the Raiders score was 45% the ark theme. Terrific theme. But it would
  5. Two of the maestros classic “trilogies” head to head. Created in practically the same decade (later sequels not included of course) Of each entry which do you/would you rather LISTEN to?
  6. Do you think if Indy 4 had been more successful film (regardless of how much money it grossed) would its score be as highly regarded as The Force Awakens is today (in the soundtrack listening community). I suppose I’m injecting personal bias here. I find the two films/scores comparable as they were both long awaited sequels to popular franchises with sky-high expectations for both the films and scores. For my money Indy 4 is a fun score, but tainted by my disappointment in the film and nowhere as entertaining score-wise as the previous entries. But Force Awakens is a score I grow to love m
  7. Hi to all JWFN members. It is great to see such dedication and knowledge to the man who has scored more than just the movies. On that note The History Press and I would like to share word of a new book published now in the UK and September 1st 2018 in the US. John Williams is the spine and soul of this book. Mark O’Connell didn’t want to be Luke Skywalker. He wanted to be one of the mop-haired kids on the Star Wars toy commercials. And he would have done it had his parents had better pine furniture and a condo in California. Star Wars, Jaws, Close Encounters of th
  8. On the 1980s and 1990s, John Williams followed one beloved adventure score (Raiders of the Lost Ark and Jurassic Park) with a sequel that is darker, more aggressive and has more action than its predecessors. So, what score do you personally prefer: the exotic adventure of Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom? Or the wild jungle rhytms of The Lost World? Vote now!
  9. A hint of something from Doug Adams on Twitter...
  10. Since the full Harry Potter 1-3 soundtracks are getting released soon, I was wondering what you guys are thinking when the IJ full soundtracks are gonna get announced? I believe it's gonna happen sometime in late January 2019.
  11. I couldn't find any reference to this in the forums, so here goes: if you listen to podcasts, you've got to check out the Underscore Podcast (www.underscorepodcast.com). I discovered it when its hosts did a guest spot on Christopher Coleman's also-excellent Soundcast podcast (which I discovered via @Erik Woods's spectacular and long-running Cinematic Sound Radio Show, but I digress). The show is hosted by two composer/musician brothers, Marty and Will Brueggeman, and apparently it just began this year. Their format is really unique: they spend a month of weekly podcasts discussin
  12. Hi, I've just joined the forum as I discovered a hidden musical quote in the theme to Indiana Jones and was interested to find out who else is aware of it. It is very blatant and from a famous song, but for the last 30 years it has continuously gone right over my head. A couple of google searches suggest that no one else on Earth has found it, or at least not considered it worthy of writing about it online... I even found a dissertation on the use of Leitmotif and themes in the Indiana Jones theme music and even that didn't mention it! So.... anyon
  13. I found some of the clean originals on YouTube (like the club fight score from TOD), but i could not find the original "Short Round Helps" and "Water!" scores. (They just sound better imo.) So can someone here maybe teach me how to clean rip the originals like people did back in the day? Or if someone has the original "short round helps" ect., could you please maybe send me a copy of them? (Doesn't matter the quality.) I just really need them in my life! They sound so good!!
  14. The Duel of the MacGuffins, or Williams scoring the god of the Old vs. the New Testament. (don't know how prone we are to religious flamewars, so I'll just stick to this) The Ark theme is very enjoyable with many great renditions. I consider it the villain theme of Raiders. To me, it communicates "You're meddling in things you should not be meddling in. If you so much as blink wrongly I will smash you like an ant." Uncovering the Ark is not a triumphant moment, it is quite dark and foreboding, like Indy and Sallah just released an ancient evil. The only semi-nice version is the fin
  15. Concord Records are issuing RAIDERS as a 2LP set on 26th May. I suppose the remaining scores will be issued as well. Raiders Of The Lost Ark [2 LP] Track Listings A1. In The Jungle A2. The Idol Temple A3. Escape From The Temple A4. Flight From Peru A5. Washington Men / Indy's Home A6. A Thought For Marion / To Nepal A7. The Medallion A8. Flight To Cairo B1. The Basket Game B2. Bad Dates B3. The Map Room: Dawn B4. Reunion In The Tent / Searching For The Well
  16. On March 15, 2016, Walt Disney Studios announced that the fifth film will be released on July 19, 2019, with Ford reprising his role, Spielberg directing, Koepp writing and Kennedy and Marshall acting as producers. George Lucas was initially not going to be involved with the film. However, during a press event for Disney's The BFG, Spielberg confirmed that Lucas will be returning as executive producer, stating "I would never make an Indiana Jones film without George Lucas. That'd be insane." Marshall has stated that the film would be a continuation of the events following Kingdom of the Crysta

  18.

  19. Not exactly a newbie, but the last time I was on here was around 2006 and that account is long, long gone. I've seen a few interviews with JW regarding the Indiana Jones scores, and not surprisingly he says the Nazi themes throw back to adventure movie scores of the 1940s, and refers to the "seventh degree of the scale on the bottom." Here's an example: He makes the reference around 3;33. Anyone have an idea what he means by this? The closest I can come up with is this: the cue we hear right after that statement is Toht's entrance into Marion's pub, where the low brass plays a G, played by
  20. 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.
  21. A couple of weeks ago, a special screening of Raiders of the Lost Ark was held in Los Angeles to celebrate the film's 30th Anniversary. Steven Spielberg and Harrison Ford attended the event and held a special post-screening Q&A, as it was reported on several threads here. The LA Times has now published the entire Q&A video. Check it out, it's worth: http://herocomplex.latimes.com/2011/09/21/indiana-jones-steven-spielberg-harrison-ford-video-george-lucas-star-wars-raiders-lost-ark/
