TND deserves some credit for the casting of Vincent Schiavelli in a (sadly) minor role . . .

... it also gets plus points for being the first one to be scored by David Arnold, going back to classy John Barry style orchestration after the godawful score that plagued Goldeneye . . .

Jesus! I can't stand Arnold or his music. It seems to me that he breaks out the Bond theme at every opportunity he can (probably no more than the earlier films though, and just my imagination because of my feelings).

Really? I live Arnold's scores and really dig the retro riffs. Was really unimpressed with the usually brilliant Eric Serra and his score for GoldenEye though.

The funny thing about his TND score is that it uses the rejected title song by KD Lang as the main theme running throughout (the one that plays over the end credits). And yeah, doubt the Bond theme features any more than in the older films. Think his music suited the solid, play it safe nature of the Brosnan era. Can't remember what his stuff for the Craig films have been like. To be honest I lost interest in Bond in general after Die Another Day . . .

I find Tomorrow Never Dies enjoyable when I watch it (great pre-credits sequence!) but fairly forgettable afterwards. Goldeneye had a better story and better characters. Eric Serra's score has some beautiful pieces of work within it, but I hate the orchestral samples that he used in places, the tank chase for example. The end song sounds as if it was the intended end title for Leon, as it shares the same theme. If you recall, they used a Sting song "Shape of My Heart" for the Leon end credits. I've not seen this qualified anywhere.
For me, TWIME is the Brosnan James Bond film. It has another exciting opening sequence in the boat chase along the Thames. His relationship with Elecktra echoes that of his relationship with Tracey in OHMSS. I always thought that the writers had done that on purpose but I've never read anything to back that theory up.

For me Serra's score for Goldeneye is ruined because of a lack of use of the Bond theme during the film's action sequences.

By the way, whats TWIME Wayfarer?

..and also because it makes me want to hit mute from the opening fanfare onwards



BTW, guess what's on ITV tonight . . . ?

I think Dalton is the best Bond, with his two films being the two best films in the cannon (currently, I have TLD as my #1), followed by Connery's first two, TND and then YOLT. MR, AVTAK and Craigs first two are my least favourites. As for the actors themselves:


1. Dalton
2. Connery
3. Moore
4. Brosnan
5. Lazenby
6. Craig

I like Moonraker and much prefer it to the dreadful Octopussy and A View To a Kill. The two Dalton Bonds are really excellent and the action in both films are some of the best in the entire canon. Die Another Day I agree is rubbish. The plot makes no sense and what 007 is after I don't know.
