What Sucks…Quantum of Solace
Sure I may not be the first to shit on the title of this movie- I may not even be the 100 thousandth, but for the next few hours I can certainly be among the most recent so, having said that…
Damn that title sucks! Quantum of Solace? The title to my car reads better. (Thank you.) As a matter of fact, here’s a good ol’ top-ten list of things that read better…
10) THIS WOMAN’S job title
9) A unabomber letter as read by a sleep deprived Crispin Glover!
8) An ill-prepared Mark Wahlberg reading for the part of the father in “Long Day Journey Into Night” at an audition!
7) I’VE LOST INTEREST IN THIS LIST!
And while we're on the subject- is there any reason a James Bond movie should suck? I know there are many that do – but why? It’s got to be the 2nd easiest movie franchise to run, but their batting average is not as good as it should be. Bad-ass guy hooks up with multiple hot chicks, gets into fights and then drives fast in a cool car 2 or three times. The rest of the time, give him cool gadgets to use to beat up bad guys with- all this- combined with putting him in any imaginable locale in the world (or Space) and him being a wise-ass to his bosses should make for an interesting and fun hour and twenty minutes every time.
We should all be excited when a James Bond movie comes out- we should live for it- we shouldn’t be struggling to pronounce it’s title!
First easiest movie franchise by the way would be The Hulk.
Quantum of Solace hits theaters this weekend!
