I am not an lover of Arnold's work. Casino Royale is too close to The World Is Not Enough and his constant arrangements of The James Bond Theme do this classic theme no favors! it feels so terribly tired. I would rather have Eric Serra who composed Goldeneye and who gave us the most profound action score I think I have ever heard. If only Arnold could create music that was so different to anything we had heard before, for example Serra's choice and use of instruments is breathtaking. Perhaps Arnold is trapped in a no win situation creatively. These two Bond producers seem hell bent on churning out films that are the same over and over again. The recent music sums up how I see these two producers - "we're bringing Bond back to Fleming's Bond"!! all cynical hype and hiding what they really mean. . . which is that we have said this in the past and got away with it. We are and have been creatively bankrupt and we don't know what else we can do.
