New bond Movie/Game "Quantum of solace"
« on: February 10, 2008, 01:07:25 am »

"Plenty of movie tie-ins are also on the way, including Activision's first James Bond game, to tie in with the upcoming movie The Quantum of Solace."

http://imdb.com/title/tt0830515/

"Quantum of Solace" is the title of a James Bond short story written by Ian Fleming, part of "For Your Eyes Only" (originally published in 1960).

According to producer Michael G. Wilson, no elements of Fleming's story are used for the film beyond the title.

The term "quantum of solace" means "a small measure of comfort amid sorrow or disappointment".

During an earnings report, Bobby Kotick, the CEO of Activision, announced that their first Bond game would be released in May 2008. However, it may be delayed to November 2008 to serve as a tie-in for the film.

The term "quantum of solace" means "we picked up two infrequently-used words, jammed them together, and stuck a ™Â® after them, while marketing invented a 'definition' for it as though it were an actual phrase."

LOL, it's a little bit rude to flame the next JB movie just because of its title... But yea, if there are no elements of the Fleming's story, it's a crappy title.

a Starwars movie?
An ersatz of? There is already Moonraker...

I dunno, the name just sound too much like Harry Potter, "Goblet of Fire, The Order of the Pheonix". As for the game, they better make it good.

err but Xanatos, the movie casino royale played the book's elements that could apply today. So imo its much different.

The only thing im hoping is how DC reportedly suggested a bisexual encounter with a man in the next bond film, that would be just irrepairable ; asiding that event ill love the film as i did his first. But they should die his hair more, making it darrrkkk not just lighter brown

They will, 99.9% confident they will.  Remember in "A View to a Kill" where Ronnie Walken quotes the title while flying his blip around and Grace looks at him like she was witnessing the lowest point in his career, past and future?  It'll be like that, but at least "view to a kill" sounds like something a half-mad evildude would say.

not the ones where roger moore was pushing 60

and that bisexual crap is bullshit. people have been pushing rumors on daniel craig since he was cast. there's a whole online community about hating craig. remember when we thought he got his teeth knocked out in his first fight scene - it was a fabrication. one of a long list of false rumors.

Yeah, that bi-sexual thing is fabricated. If it was in the movie, I wouldn't ever watch a JB movie again.

Can't wait for it though as Craig seems to be one of the best Bonds I've ever seen.

Has nothing to do with tolerance. Bond fucking a man does not fit 007's character. It's probably the worst thing to do to Bond's image next to getting married, or having kids.

Uh, I thought he had at least a wife who was killed by bad doods as revenge or something.

Like GELizard said, all I meant was it would ruin the character. I hate when politically correct people always get offended by the slightest things.

Because it's just so reprehensible to know that a guy has kissed another guy!

No. Because it would be completely selling out Ian Fleming's character and the whole dynamic of James Bond just to get gay people to come out and spend money to see Daniel Craig fucking a dude. Hence the PC bullshit.

Sorry, I must have forgotten that all gays are 13 years old and have to get their gay porn from the movies because their AOL accounts are access limited.
