I can't get over how absolutely beautiful this film looks.

Wow. I'm definitely looking forward to this now. I still hope they follow up on Quantum in another movie, but this one looks excellent.

Re: "James Bond 23" officially slated for 2012!

Teaser trailer looks excellent. Really hoping that the whole "Country?" "England" thing means the film will have a deeper thematic concern with the ideas of patriotism and nationalism, and how those relate to the sort of violence that marks Bond's world. Casino Royale was really good at exploring that world of covert violence and how it consumes people, but Quantum of Solace didn't really follow up on that, I felt.

I hope Quantum continues to be the Craig-era villain organization, yeah. Especially in this age of class conflict, I suspect a James Bond movie featuring a cabal of rich plutocrats who seek to subvert the world's democracies for their wealth would resonate with many people.

(Not gonna lie: Before seeing Quantum of Solace, I was hoping that the then-unnamed organization that had killed Le Chiffre would turn out to be SPECTRE.)

I've never been crazy about SPECTRE. The name (an acronym for SPecial Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion) has always been a bit on-the-nose for my taste. Quantum is essentially the same thing, anyways, only with a name that isn't so juvenile.

I don't much care for the longer phrase "SPECTRE" is supposed to stand for, but I'd been hoping it could appear with "SPECTRE" just being its name, not something short for anything else.

Rewatched it tonight (quite a lot of times) and yes I hear it now

Re: "James Bond 23" officially slated for 2012!

I wonder what QUANTUM is short for?



The trailer looks excellent...I am psyched.

I love the brief shots of the characters. Frankly, I'm particularly fascinated by the shot of M and Bond looking out over a mist-filled countryside. I'd wager it implies a heart-to-heart between them, as M reflects on the impact of the choices she's made....


Especially in this age of class conflict, I suspect a James Bond movie featuring a cabal of rich plutocrats who seek to subvert the world's democracies for their wealth would resonate with many people.
Don't forget: they fake climate-change-related environmental disasters in order to gain control of the world's natural resources...using an environmental activist group as a front.

As Dominic Greene himself noted, "We deal with the Left and the Right." And the films resonate similarly.

So far as has been established, nothing in particular.

I love how they've treated the relationship between this version of M and Bond.

It's just a title, not an acronym for something silly, as far as the movies have been concerned.
