John Williams, Steven Spielberg - Ultimate Collection gets 5 stars from READJUNK

Bookmark and Share

The longest collaboration in Hollywood has to be composer John Williams and director Steven Spielberg. It started with The Sugarland Express and his most recent work, The BFG. Williams has worked on every Spielberg movie except Bridge of Spies, The Color Purple and Twilight Zone: The Movie. If you're a fan of film scores or want to get into them, this is a perfect compilation for that.

The Ultimate collection of John Williams & Steven Spielberg is spread out over 3 discs. There's also a bonus DVD that features a documentary, but that wasn't sent out for review. I'd like to see that though. As a huge John Williams fan, this Ultimate Collection is pretty solid and features so many tracks it's hard to list them all here. Disc 1 starts out with of course, "The Raiders March" from Raiders of the Lost Ark. Such a timeless classic, both the movie and the music. It's debatable if that's John Williams' most famous theme but then again, he usually ends with that at his concerts. I still think Star Wars is the most recognizable and most popular theme from Williams. It's or him is the reason why I love film scores. But with in keeping with the Williams/Spielberg connection, can't list Star Wars here.
