They're both John Williams, so it doesn't matter anyway! I'm pleased that his music is so far dominating this thread.

On that note...

That's like saying it doesn't matter which album a song came from.
Comparing Powerman 5000s old stuff to their new stuff should easily demonstrate the folly in that.

Personally, I was never a great fan of Indiana Jones' soundtrack. It's alright, but honestly, nothing that portrays any emotion, excitement or suspense. The Star Wars soundtrack does all these and more.

That also generally summarizes my thoughts on each respective film series as well.

I agree on the emotions part - but I think Indiana Jones' theme was amazing just because of how fitting it was in general, and memorable. I think, personally, in Jurassic park and Indiana Jones, music took a back seat. I mean sure the Welcome to Jurassic Park tune is amazing and gives off the glorious excitement that belongs in that particular scene, but then the rest just seems to be background noise.

Didn't mean for that to be taken so literally, just my way of expressing how John Williams has composed several classic soundtracks, including Star Wars, Indiana Jones, etc. Though I do agree that the Star Wars soundtracks are his most consistently amazing ones (that I'm familiar with). I can remember many, many themes from Star Wars off the top of my head, but can only remember the main themes from Indiana Jones and Jurassic Park. Doesn't make those themes any less classic, though.

I don't think those two can be compared. Star Wars is an epic saga with a great focus on the fight between good and evil, and strong characters that represent both sides. Portraying emotions, character and other via music is a must for this kind of movies. Indiana Jones is just an adventure/action/comedy film. There is no need for producers to put so much focus on music there.

Like in Halloween... one track is all it needs.

YouTube Video: Godzilla: Final Wars - Beginning of the End


This track is just epic. Toho really ended the series right with this movie. I just love the soundtrack. It really has an epic feel and fits perfectly with a lot of sequences.

Here's the most-used battle track in the movie, and also provides an epic atmosphere.

YouTube Video: Godzilla: Final Wars - King of Monsters


This particular track is just cool sounding. Hence the name, it fits the 'ready for battle' theme.

YouTube Video: Godzilla: Final Wars - Ready for Rumble


This one is played at Gigan's awakening if I recall correctly. One of the coolest monsters in the Godzilla franchise! He also got an updated look in this movie, and had not been seen since the first series.

YouTube Video: Godzilla: Final Wars - Arrival


This one is played at one of the human battles, which is weird on a G movie. Most of the time, you get people talking and monsters fighting. But here you have Humans fighting and monsters fighting. I really didn't mind, it's all fighting and epic. I also found this track to have a game-like feel to it.

YouTube Video: Godzilla: Final Wars - High Battle


This one is groovy.
It was only played for the short and brief Hedorah scene. I think it was the same suit from way back when, so they had to be quick and try to hide most of the old flaws and damages. It didn't look too different.

YouTube Video: Godzilla: Final Wars - Back In Action


This one plays when Mothra is summoned and sent out to battle where she then meets Gigan. It starts a little slower with a nice tone, then picks up where Mothra flies out towards Gigan.

YouTube Video: Godzilla: Final Wars - Awaken


Yeah, the world is devoid of life and the entire human civilization is completely eradicated. Although the aliens are gone and al lthe monsters are done for and Godzilla and his son are going back to sea, so it's all cool. Happy upbeat music...

YouTube Video: Godzilla: Final Wars - End Title

@Mongo: I said don't post more than 3 tracks per post for a good reason. Imagine everyone puts eight tracks/videos, that is 8*30=240 videos on one thread page. The page would never load.

Don't get upset guys, it is just that my not so fancy PC isn't very happy when I try to open these "video pages". It takes some time to load even with these 20 videos. On some other forums my browser sometimes freezes on this kind of threads. So I wanted to put some kind of limit; it keeps the thread cleaner and is more old-PC friendly.

@Mongo: You shouldn't have bothered splitting it when you already posted it.

It seems there is no original "Laputa - Castle in the sky" theme on Youtube, so I will put this version which is close enough:

And here is another track from the same anime:

Ennio Morricone, John Barry, John Williams, James Horner, Philip Glass, Vangelis.

Those are my favorite film composers.

Eliot Goldenthal's Heat is also good.

Zomg, this is crazy. How did this get into the 50th anniversary OST??

And I cannot believe Toho didn't even use this. They did not use the actual main theme anywhere at all in Final Wars. something felt like it was missing. I mean, they couldn't have played it in the credits even?
