There's 2 seperate things here. I think one has to ask why so many kids still gravitate towards Star Wars (either the prequels or the cartoons) whilst having no connection to Indiana Jones. It really...

Agreed - TLC is easily Williams' best Indy score (IMHO).

I managed to persuade my girlfriend to go with me to a Star Wars event in London a few years ago (the only one I've ever been to). By some quirk of fate we managed to stay in the same hotel as many...

I think you're right... Donovan is quite a non-descript, ambiguous character, but he's also (IMHO) a very believable, human antagonist. I think we also have to ask ourselves how well does that...

The best comparison I can think of is MASH the movie and MASH the tv series. They both work individually, are tonally different, yet it's the same universe.

I think you over credit the movies and do the TV series a dis-service. I agree that the Indy movies are much more "pulp/comic book" like than the TV series... and the tone is palpably different. But...

I think there is a bit of revisionism and retrofitting both on the side of Lucas and on the side of the fans. On Lucas' part, he wanted to flesh out the character a bit more... (I suppose in line...

Yep - that's a good one Indy's Bro. Although I'd like to see it as a deleted scene, I'm glad they removed it from the cut as I think it would have dragged on too long otherwise.

Isn't the premise of the thread based on the notion that the cue is unexpected? Ergo not expected, out of place? If not, why have a thread asking the question re. intent of filmmakers to have the cue...

Agreed. Ticket sales are a good indicator of a films poularity and its financial success. Empirical technical/artistic quality is more open to debate. :)

Yep... but that would have been 4 or 5 years after TLC. In reality 5-8 years if a new Indy movie had gone into production then. I think the Indiana Jones series is a 3 series movie at best. Anything...

Not really Michael... as you yourself point out, it's out of place. I don't think there is anything wrong with the theme per se (although a bit predictable)... but as a cue it's in the wrong place...

Lucas could have had a dozen different scripts in the 80's/90's ready to go... but even if he did, at that point both Spielberg and Ford were done with the character too. I'm not sure you can blame...

The IMDB demographic is far too limited. It's like polling AICN members and expecting an intelligent insight into a movie. Lucas neither tried to turn Skull into a toy selling machine nor did he fail...

I personally thought it always seemed very out of place. I love the music in the direct approach to Pankot - very fitting. But Short Round's theme... nah.
