No, it doesn't and it didn't work for me as a boy of 8 seeing the first movie in 1978. That was lazy budgeting on the part of the Salkinds and lazy design on the part of John Barry.
You may not like the design they came up with, but I would hardly call it "lazy". It looked about a thousand times more sophisticated and expensive than anything we'd seen in a superhero movie before.
I agree the crystal sets look a bit on the cheap side now (as do the sets in the original SW movies, for that matter-- especially compared to what we see in movies today), but the concept
they came up with is still as strong as ever, I think.
