A Quantum of Solace Over Star Trek 11

It's one of the most awaited titles of the year, another sequel to the long list of films in that franchise. And it's been finally revealed!!!

Presenting, the official title to one of the most anticipated sequels of the year...


And now, I present the NEW old Enterprise!

Ah yes, Quantum of Solace, such a poetic name for a movie with such a poetic looking ship... Such a Sci-Fi sounding name that even James Bond would kill for....

Eh? What? That ain't Star Trek 11's name? Whadaya mean its the name of BOND 22????

So, it's actually James Bond 007: Quantum of Solace instead? What a bummer. And what a strange title for a James Bond film.

Yes, I know it's the title of one of Ian fleming's short stories, but it still sounds more like the title of a Star Trek movie than a James Bond ones.

What happen to good old-fashioned Bond-titles like The Spy Who Loved Me, From Russia With Love, The Man With The Golden Gun, Goldfinger, Dr. No, and Octopussy?

Heck, judging from the synopsis taken from Empireonline - centres on an attempted coup in a South American country. Dominic Greene, who works behind the cover of an organisation called Green Planet, wants to control one of the world's most important natural resources, and to aid in this he makes a deal with an exiled South American general to get him back into power. - I see no bloody connection between the bloody title and the movie at all.

And what the heck does the title mean anyway? 'A degree of comfort' like Craig himself says? Like.. wow, deeeeeeeeeep.

Bah. Forget Quantum of Solace. Judging from the 'green' theme of the synopsis, here's what they SHOULD have called Bond 22:
  • 007: An Inconvenient Kill
  • 007: Global Warming Is not Enough
  • 007: The Man With a Green Thumb
  • 007: Rainforests are Forever
  • 007: The Tree-Hugger Who Loved Me
  • 007: Captain Planet Returns
Now THOSE are what I call James Bond movie titles....
