    People say that "Quantum Of Solace" (The New James Bond Movie (007) ) would be one of the worst names ever. What do you think? Think and Vote! [​IMG]

    Yeah, it sucks. This is the first James Bond movie with a name that I don't have clue of what it means [​IMG]

    I've seen nothing of this movie except for people speaking disparagingly of it, and based on only that it sounds awful. Is it really supposed to be about Bond looking for comfort after losing his girlfriend?

    BTW, a "quantum of solace" is apparently supposed to be the smallest single amount of comfort allowed by the laws of physics.

    Its a terrible name, sounds like it should be for Harry Potter or something.

    The films is ok, not much of a fan of Bond films though. I liked the earlier ones before they got silly as well as GoldenEye & Casino Royale. For me the films have really been "of their time", a lot of people don't see that with the new ones and kinda piss on the "grittiness" of them.

    Name sucks, definitely. Haven't seen it yet, but from what I heard it sucks badly. And so did Casino Royal. This Bond may be truer to the original Books, but IMO they created a whole new Bond with how they depicted him in the 20 previous movies.

    On a German Blog someone called this new Bond "Emo Bond"...

    Sounds like every other bond film then.

    Some villain does something, bond goes off, gets caught, villain explains his plan to bond by which time bond escapes and wins!

    Does anyone other than grandmothers (at xmas time) watch bond movies? Every xmas you can guarantee a bond film will be on, with a pissed up granny sat watching it. She doesn't know which one it is, as they are all identical.

    I like watching James Bond movies. It's just that you shouldn't take them too seriously, because they're pretty stupid [​IMG]

    He shouldn't have asked if anyone actually likes the movies in a thread full of people who already said they do. That's stupid.

    What thread are you referring to, where everyone said they like the Bond films? This one? Are you sure?

    Except I wasn't trolling, I was stating a fact - they ARE all the same. They DO get watched by inebriated grandparents at xmas.



    You suck at both having a sense of humour AND at making a point. Congratulations


    I also never asked if anyone "actually likes the movies", that is just you making things up to justify your failed pointmaking. ;p

    EDIT : just looked at your link, you really REALLY do fail - did that lame link have any relevance to anyone but yourself?
