Despite being from Fleming many aren't keen on the title Quantum of Solace? What do you think would be the right title?

    I think "Death leaves an echo" would suit QoS even beter than LTK. The death of Vesper in CR very much leaves and echo in this movie.

    "Blood from a stone" would also work well. It sounds cool (always important!) and getting peace from revenge is pretty much unobtainable just like getting blood from a stone.

    Because it's Fleming it gets a free pass from me. I'd been familiar with the story for a very long time and hence obviously the title.

    I have no problem with the title of this, it's Bond finding some solace after Vesper's death, it made sense.

    It came from Fleming so I have no problem regarding this one.

    The only Fleming title that I would not liked to see is '007 in New York', but aside from that, as long as it came from Fleming, I have no problem.

    It's a title of a short story, glad that it's been used compared to the other great titles that's still waiting inside the shelf (The Hildebrand Rarity, Risico, Property Of A Lady, etc.)

    I agree @MI6_Headquarters I know this is a fun thread [I think it is a fun thread] but the title is one I wouldn't change. It's a great pity the producers chivvied in obvioys references to Risico, The Hildebrand Rarity and The Property of a Lady over various movies as they've now almost excluded them from use. On a lighter note, how about Another Way to Die. At least it would ensure the theme song made sense.

    I was so young and naive when I started this thread, beliveing most people would post serious suggestions.

    I’d leave it as is. No Time to Die on the other hand πŸ™„

    Yes. Considerably!

    I liked this title since it was announced. Very Bond-ish and very 2008-ish (the latter means modern but not futuristic)…

    The name is Walker by the way.

    Excellent idea :)

    These titles are more easily understandable than QoS, but are they really any better as action movie titles?

  • superadosuperado Regent's Park West (CaliforniaPosts: 2,622MI6 Agent

    I was being facetious. A Fleming original is hard to beat and the title suits Bond and Camille’s state of mind in how their respective stories wrap up.

    I too like QoS. I think it's an interesting and thought-provoking (ie head-scratching) title, which is good, plus it's an original Fleming title. I still hold hope that we will see Risico used one day. I think all future Bond movies should be banned from using the words "live", "die", "licence", and "kill" or versions thereof (even though there has only been one film with "licence" in its title).


    That said, Quantity of Sausages dies have a great ring to it.

    QoS is one of the better titles and wraps perfectly into the final scenes.

    Upon reflecting on my earlier reply, I realise it was terribly rude of me not to offer N24 an alternate title or two, as he so wished. Therefore, I propose:


    The Mathis Disposal

    Strawberry Fields Are Not Forever

    Elvis Has Left the Building
