Another thread pointing out that everyone loves the Original Star Wars Trilogy. Although The Prisoner of Azkaban is my favourite score out of these, I picked Indiana Jones.

I dunno. Voted for SW OT but I think they are all pretty much equal.   1-OT,Indy,HP Tie 2-SW Prequels and Sequels slightly lower

Indiana Jones. I don't like Star Wars anymore and I never saw all of Harry Potter.   But I'll probably still watch The Mandalorian, because it doesn't look like traditional SW all that much.

This is a thread and poll about the scores, not the actual movies

Let's add Indy to the mix.

 

(Jaws, Jurassic Park and Home Alone franchises looking on from the outside. Just 1 shy!)

 

I chose Indiana Jones.

Well, you are already making IJ a trilogy when it is not--why not call the others trilogies?

I mean, it's his poll, and he wants to rank these things against each other, and not those other things

 

You could do the poll you describe as a separate thread if you wanted to

It just seems a bit strange to call IJ a trilogy is all.

To be clear, I like the score to Indy 4 a lot, but completely understand why the poll is specifically comparing these 5 trilogies against each other without bringing it or other franchises into the mix

Because John Williams didn't score Jaws 3, JP 3, ect ect.

 

This poll is JW scores of trilogies with returning themes.

 

KOTCS was the one odd ball that I felt didn't need to be included, because the first 3 Indy movies are widely renown as a trilogy. (and I'm saying this as one of the biggest KOTCS movie & score fans there is.)

 

Regardless, SW OT is just crushing it.  Honestly thought Indy had a better chance.  Maybe some of the votes for the PT and Harry Potter would've gone to Indy, but I doubt it.

No, Indy 4 (in complete form) is vastly underrated. 

Yes, it comes down to me not liking seeing this score shortchanged (though I did not need to be stupid about it).  I get the movie is terrible, but why should that be relevant to how the score is evaluated?  Incidentally, I think the score (not necessarily the OST) is better than AofC, CoS, TLJ, and TRoS, in terms of the listed movies.  If it wasn't for Rey's theme, it would be better than TFA as well.

I don't think you were being stupid about it, and I didn't mean to shortchange the movie/score at all.  I honestly just wanted it to be trilogy vs trilogy vs. trilogy vs. trilogy.

 

I love KOTCS, both movie and score, but it felt right to just keep it out.

 

With all the previous polls including Star Wars, I just wanted to see if Indy could hold a candle to the OT.  And I was proven wrong, and I don't think the addition of KOTCS would've helped.  So it was intentionally skewed to get the best results for Indy. :yes:

The Original Trilogy wins for me. After that I'm not so sure... Maybe Indiana Jones, but Im not so sure. I can defend also Indy 4, I like the score quite a lot and although the movie is weak I don't think is totally rubbish (actually I prefer it than TROS, ATOC or ROTS, 3 movies that I find very dull...).

 

 also love the Sequel Trilogy scores more than the Prequels for sure and I'm not sure at all were to put HP... POA is excellent and one of the best scores from all these trilogies.
