No Arnold = very bad decision   Wednesday, July 6, 2016 (12:19 a.m.) 

David Arnold made Independence Day what it was. Without him, this film falls flat, even if the visuals hold up. I really enjoyed the music to 10,000 BC, but the Dynamic duo fizzled with this score.

I think I need to agree with you on that one. Having a sequel to a film that now has an already-established musical sound and style that doesn't stay true to the prior film's score is almost like trying to make a Star Trek film or a Star Wars film without the traditional Star Trek theme(s) by Alexander Courage, Jerry and Joel Goldsmith, and Dennis McCarthy, or Star Wars theme(s) by John Williams, respectively, or a James Bond 007 film without the legendary James Bond 007 Theme by Monty Norman and John Barry, or a Jason Bourne film without 'Extreme Ways' by Moby, or a Mission: Impossible film without the Mission: Impossible theme, or a Superman film without the traditional 'Superman March' by John Williams, (something that Hans Zimmer and Junkie X.L. did not respect in their scores to Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice -- even though that's off-topic). Need I go on? If they ever do create a third Independence Day film, I say that it's a requirement to re-instate David Arnold as composer, or at least bring in a composer who promises to stay true to his original score, (like how Michael Giacchino's and Joe Kraemer's respective scores to the Mission: Impossible films and the contemporary Star Trek films stay true to their respective parent franchises' musical sounds and styles).
