trailer break: ‘Quantum of Solace’

Take a break from work: watch a movie trailer…

Ooo, James Bond is shadowy and mysterious! And griefstricken! And out for revenge! I bet he’s so mad he kills someone in an inventive way.

Oh, and he’s gonna be shirtless.

Quantum of Solace opens November 7.

Woo-hoo! Seeing this before “The Dark Knight” a couple of weeks ago was another high moment.

I didn’t expect the “revenge” angle either. I thought the next adventure would have taken place long after the Vespa tragedy. So this is really interesting.

Diving into the Unknown is always good! (Especially when you’re shirtless. Bestill my … heart.)

Check. Check. Check.

I especially like the idea of having a little continuity with the adventures of Bond. Sure beats having to introduce new villains and paramours without ever getting the chance to talk and think about what’s come before.

But what’s with the title, which surely has to be the franchise’s worst since Octopussy?

I kinda dig the title. It acknowledges the pain – physical, psychological – that Bond experienced in Casino Royale and points to the scrap of relief he will find as he grows into the James Bond of earlier films and does so using some slick words. Of course, I could be way off. I’m just guessing.

The bloke also came up with “The Hildebrand Rarity” and the ingeniously-monikered “007 in New York” for titles. Just ’cause it squeaked out of Fleming’s brain one summer in Jamaica doesn’t mean it’s any good.

Coming up next, the .

Planck Constant of Consolation.

Or *The Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle of Grief.*

But Bond can have total knowledge of how griefstricken he is and know how fast the Aston Martin is going at the same time. I’m sorry, but I don’t see how Heisenberg Uncertainty applies here. And the Planck constant has units of (energy)x(time) while Consolation has units of tears. I don’t think it’ll work.

Oh, yeah – I am that bored at work.
