But what do I know, I quite like the Goldeneye soundtrack
I thought the soundtrack was what almost ruined the film.
GoldenEye would be the film I'd love to see/hear rescored by David Arnold.
Me too. (and nsna)

Though the musique concrete "Goldeneye overture" is genius - the way it builds the Bond theme out of disparate elements - but it works better as a standalone piece and the actual scoring within the film is rubbish.

(This is usually about the point where I tell the story of attending an MGM press do in 1997 and asking the studio rep if Serra was doing TnD - Arnold hadn't been announced yet - and the rep said "no, he's ruining The Fifth Element for us this year.")
