For me the T-Rex vs. the Indominus Rex fight in JURASSIC WORLD was better than the entire JP3 film. Now that's an ending, not Grant giving raptors back their eggs.

IMHO the Spinosaurus/T-Rex fight beats anything in that other film. Just wish the fight lasted longer.


People were upset by the outcome of that fight, that's why they have the T-Rex destroy the Spinosuar skeleton in JW.

Well, some people don't like him. I, however, enjoy most of what he does. Especially what I consider classics like JP3, "The Swan Princess", and the three Godawful animated Titanic films.


We shall agree to disagree ! Look, civility on the FSM board ! eek


In other news, i found JP3 to be a good, fun entry in the series. Aside from the disappointing ending, it was fast and lean with some great action sequences. To be honest I've even enjoyed the Jurassic World movies although they're actually pretty bad.

There was no need for anything after the first film and novel - even Crichton had trouble coming up with a solid sequel in the novel

Davis' score is great. Good nods to the Williams themes and good original music. An expansion from LLL would be a nice treat

Yes, I caught that. That was cute. But you know what? The T-Rex in JP has turned into Godzilla. Started off as a terror then turned into man kinds campy hero. LOL!

Just realized this original press blurb from the OP was posted 17 YEARS AGO.

Was this forum well-known and widely-used by then? It's kind of amazing to me that Universal shelled out even a nominal amount of money to have a very small PR firm specializing in soundtracks scour the internet back for a sub-sub-sub-niche like film score collectors, only to announce (to what I imagine was a small pool of users information back then, though of course I could be very wrong) an album they probably knew was forthcoming anyway.

So here's a question related to this score (which I enjoyed in the film), is LLLR going to tackle a complete release to accompany the first 2 scores?

You are right, Rexy has become a hero, but I like that. I like to see her kick butt. Although, in FALLEN KINGDOM she's back to being a terror in some scenes which I also like.

Yes I was born by then, but not grown up. Same now.winkSeriously though, I have been a member here since 2001.

I too initially thought it was a new thread about an announcement for the complete score that had somehow been kept silent.


I need to give this score another chance. I gave it one over fifteen years ago and don't since.



Oh, Honest Trailers has done the film now; I haven't been to their channel in around a month:

I'm glad this score wasn't included with La La Land's JURASSIC release, this score has never done anything for me. I think it's a very weak score. I do know others like it and I hope they get a release however.

I don't think there was ever a plan to include in that set from LLL, as it was designed to focus on Williams specifically, which they did for the Harry Potter set and so many other expanded Williams albums recently. I actually really like the score for JPIII, there are many standout cues and Davis does a great job incorporating many of Williams' orchestrational flourishes into the music. I don't think there is any reason to throw this score under the bus simply because it wasn't included in the LLL set, but that set wasn't supposed to represent the JP franchise as a whole anyway.

Didn't MV indicate this was going to come out later. Unfortunately it's been quite some time now.

Yes, I quite disagree with you here, henry. I think one has to rid oneself of the notion that it's supposed to have lots of 'awe and wonder' like the first score (well, you also had to do that with THE LOST WORLD, but at least it was still Williams). This is more for the fans of Davis' more aggressive action sound with lots of tone clusters and stuff. Fans of THE MATRIX scores will no doubt find value in this too (of which I am one). I also love how Davis -- a rather different composer from Williams -- approximates his sound and orchestration here and there.

A fascinating score that I don't place as high as the first two, but miles and miles better than the Giacchino score for JURASSIC WORLD. And -- of course -- I think the existing soundtrack is more than fine enough. Needs no expansion whatsoever.

In order to enjoy this score, one has to rid oneself of the notion that this is a good listenable film score.

Listenable, schimstenable....there are other ways to enjoy music than just sheer consonance all the time!

For Immediate Release

MUSIC FROM THE ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE JURASSIC PARK III
NEW MUSIC COMPOSED BY DON DAVIS
WITH ORIGINAL THEMES BY JOHN WILLIAMS
INCLUDES “BIG HAT, NO CATTLE” BY RANDY NEWMAN
TO BE RELEASED JULY 10, 2001 BY DECCA RECORDS

SPECIAL ENHANCED CD FEATURING EXCLUSIVE BONUS MATERIAL


(New York, NY, July 6, 2001) — On July 10th, Decca Records will release the highly anticipated soundtrack to Jurassic Park III. It features the award-winning original themes by John Williams plus new music composed by Don Davis (The Matrix). The album also includes “Big Hat, No Cattle” — a memorable song by Oscar-nominated songwriter Randy Newman which was first released on his 1999 album Bad Love.

The soundtrack album is also an enhanced CD containing exclusive bonus material such as the movie trailer, the video game trailer, photos, the Jurassic Park III “Dino Chart,” notes from composer Don Davis, and a link to the Jurassic Park website.

Jurassic Park III continues the series that began with Jurassic Park and The Lost World: Jurassic Park. Joe Johnston (October Sky, Jumanji), who first collaborated with Steven Spielberg on Raiders Of The Lost Ark, directs and Spielberg is Executive Producer. The wizards at Industrial Light & Magic and Stan Winston once again combine forces to create the dazzling dinosaur effects.

Anxious to fund research for his new theory of velociraptor intelligence, renowned paleontologist Dr. Alan Grant (Sam Neill) is persuaded by a wealthy adventurer (William H. Macy) and his wife (Téa Leoni) to accompany them on an aerial tour of Isla Sorna. This infamous island, once InGen’s site B, has become both a primordial breeding ground for John Hammond’s magnificent creations and a magnet for thrill seekers eager to encounter them.

When a tragic accident maroons the party of seven, Grant discovers the true reason his deceptive hosts have invited him along. In their perilous attempt to escape with their lives, the dwindling group encounters terrifying new creatures undisclosed by InGen, and Grant is forced to learn the dreadful implications of his raptor intelligence theory firsthand.

The film opens July 18th in theaters everywhere. The Decca soundtrack album will be released July 10th

God I miss you Beth.....

Also, the scores sounds great and it's a very strong effort on it's own terms as far as I'm concerned.

As do I, Ford.

I think the score itself was actually fairly entertaining - the new Kirby theme is quite intriguing too. My biggest gripe was the slightly faster tempo that Williams' themes were played at (at least to my ears - maybe I'm wrong!). But otherwise it's a fairly sterling effort for a sub-par film

"Sub par"? I thought it was an excellent film, albeit at least 20 minutes too short.
