    Yeah, that wasn't a great one, either. The W/7 was animated to become the form inside the shield outline.

    They kept it, but now it's this big block of shiny gold that looks like chrome, with the fancy fly-around of "the camera." I much prefer the earlier, non-cgi versions, which had better color design and did not have that artificial ex-machina look. As for the audio, the original CinemaScope "extension" fanfare (by Alfred Newman), despite the re-recording for the modern rendition using all the audio technology of today, still sounds best to me. Guess I'm just a kind of nostalgic purist. Yeah, time marches on, but (for me, at least), it doesn't necessarily bring with it any improvement on what came before.
