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!

Was i the only one to be absolutely and utterly bored by this movie, i think the title is an excellent reflection of the movie.... BORING
I watched casino royale just before seeing this movie and yeah im soo upset.
What happened to the evil un dreamable story lines????
Who gives a shite about a buisness man buying up water in desert countrys? Wait it happens every bloddy day no one cares. Why not just watch discovery channel???
I know i miss the older bonds.
What happened to super weapons, super guns, stealth boats, giant underwater satelites or moonbases? even truckloads of semi naked women??
The idea was it was on the edge of reality not boring everyday.
i mean WATER????? god whats next bond??? wall street royale? hostile takeovers three part series

He is a pretty good bond but...
Sorry bond fans but i wouldnt hold your breath its sadly suckie...
May as well go rent a few old ones and watch them by FAR!!!! more interesting.
Cheers

It does sucks when they make this movie just like any stupid shot them up & kill everyone style. James Bond has no flare, humor, women, gadget and so on from the past. Even stupid director put his normal bond theme entrance at end credit! I hate todays movie, just dark and angry which also ruine James Bond along with Batman, Superman & so on. Don't waste going to theater for this, just wait for rental.

Hmm... All you guys bitching about the lack of gadgets and shit, and about how the generic Bond entrance came at the end...
THESE MOVIES ARE PREQUELS. That's the f*cking point. At the end when he drops the necklace in the snow, it symbolizes that he has forgotten about Vesper, true love, etc. and is now Bond, James Bond. The entrance scene being placed at the end was brilliant. It also represents that Bond is no longer a rookie a$$ b*tch. Now he's the Bond we all know and love.
So stfu or gtfo.

Quantum of Solace was no James Bond movie. It was an action-movie with the names that is in the James Bond movies. Where was Q??? Where was the car with the rockets, missiles, machine-guns and so on??? Where was "Bond, James Bond"??? Where was all the gadgets? It sucks! And why use animation?? Come on! Animation in a James Bond movie??? Much of the same with Casino Royale! He used 3 cars! 3!!! The only "cool" thing about the last car, was that it had a device against poison! I hope the next one will be much much much better!!! Where is Pierce Brosnan?????

Nicholas, the guy that played Q died a few years ago. If you saw The World Is Not Enough, that was his final appearnce before John Cleese took over as R.

Ok people this movie and casino royal are prequels, I agree that Q should have been in the movie I agree bond should have had ONE gadget but in the story of james bond it is actually pretty good movie. There is bond the man on the movie screen and bond the man in the books; there is a difference. Timothy Dalton tried to bring the book james bond to the screen and it didn't work. Unfortunate he and this last two films are the most important stories in the jame bond franchise. I see some are say that pierce Brosnan was the best bond well I beg the differ,( this is another topic)it is roger more but what is going on for you Remington Steele fans is that the Group is named SPECTRE and this is the beginning of Bond vs. Blowfed. P.S. I wish that DR. NO would have been mention in Quantum of Solace
