Was it only me, or did everyone else feel the music was used to great effect in Mad Max. It helped express his anger, his sorrow and fear, better than any dialogue could have. Like the amazing build up as he stews in his anger at his beach house, wringing out the mask, then charges back to MFP headquarters to claim the Interceptor. with the full orchestra emphasising his plan for revenge.
Yea, it was good. I like the way that the orchestrations were used for highs and lows, suspense and tranquility, around the time when toecutter and the gang were marauding through the woods by the beach...
I wasn't really too sure about the music in the second though. I felt that slightly they were building up tension in places it wasn't needed, or silence could have worked better?
I however loved the music in Thunderdome! The cool "Thunderdome March" music turned it into much more of an adventure ala Indiana Jones whilst certain pieces were still dark enough to express the dark mood of some scenes.

Speaking about Thunderdome's music... Jarre did a FANTASTIC JOB with it! Poignant, wonderful, intense and unforgettable music. And yes... it was a lot "Indiana Jones"-like, but the movie itself was the most "Indiana Jones" -like chapter of the series, if you think for a minute about it. It was great (and the best one) just for this!
