Wow, I never expected it to be THAT good! Where to start? The whole thing sounded so much better overall, you’d think they made the other two films thirty years ago. Though the story is at times absurd for non-religious people, it was much more compelling and interesting than the first two. Actually, I’d rather just pretend Temple of Doom never existed. What a drag that was compared to this one. This entry was also much more light-hearted and even funny at times. Sean Connery really hash an enormoush speech defect, good gracioush.
But the best aspect was undoubtedly Williams’ fantastic score. The holy grail theme is just magnificent. This was the first time that JW moved me so deeply, I just couldn’t get enough of those solemn brass chords. Then the theme heard in ‘Scherzo for Motorcycle and Orchestra’… I love it when Williams uses trumpets and oboes to play triplets at the same time. Then the Nazi theme… I’ve been watching a lot of Williams films this month: three Indy movies and Born on the Fourth of July, and then I also listened to a bunch of Boston Pops albums of his music. I’m officially hooked on his scores and this one had better have a good album representation.
Oh, and I also liked the London accent of the audio-describer.
