The title "Spectre" came from Fleming, but it still felt uninspired as the title of the 24th James Bond film. I couldn't see, for instance, Fleming titling his next JB novel after Golden Gun "Spectre."
I suppose it could be worse...it could be called "Ernst". Actually more likely "James".
I really abhor the trend of lazy titles these past few years. I'm probably missing out on some good films because the titles have turned me away. I never did see "Jason Bourne" or 'Logan".
I didn't really mind the title "Spectre", but it did seem a bit uninspired.
Yes. I'd probably bet my Blu-ray of OHMSS that if Eon actually were to sell Bond, the rights could go to any handful of studios that would find "007" or "Bond" acceptable titles. Then we probably would get a film with such an awful title.
They could simply use Spectre to fill the role of The Union and Shatterhand being a pseudonym/nickname of Blofeld it would make sense.
So if anyone complains about the title of QOS: that was my idea. Or at least I was one of those who wanted the title to be used
A remake of FRWL... "Spektor"!!!
Personally, I love the multi-word titles.
The people who made 007 Legends should be publicly flogged. Not having Dr No in the game when they wrote about him on the back was the least of their crimes against humanity.
I agree with this. For a change, I say we need our next Bond title to be a sentence, not a phrase.
I'd love to see the plot to match the title! I do hope cowgirl costumes and football boots will be involved!
Don't even joke.
I was for awhile as well. But I'm more and more confident neither Mendes nor Waltz will return. Blofeld will, for sure, but once the series moves in a new direction, I think (hope) we'll have less fear for a film titled "Blofeld."
I LOVE IT!
I still think Quantum Of Solace is the worst title by a wide margin. It doesn't sound sexy or dangerous or cool. It sounds weird and pretentious. It's Fleming for the sake of it imo. And the filmmakers didn't even have the balls to commit to it so they had to add a literal meaning at the last minute that made the SP retcon worse: imagine if instead of the last minute hamfisted "I told you everything you wanted to know about Quantum", the mysterious organisation stayed unnamed. Then we'd have no confusion. They could have easily just been Spectre. If they had to use a Fleming title for the film I would have rather Property of a Lady. That would've fit. I don't really like that one either but it's better than QoS.
Imo, the only decent Fleming title left is Risico. Outside of that they should leave it. I really really hope the little nod in SP means we'll never get a Bond film called The Hilderbrand Rarity. Chapter titles and phrases are fair game though. Shatterhand would make a brilliant title and I'm sure they will use it eventually.
That would be a great one.
I don't know about that as a title.
Another is the Casino Royale chapter title Rouge Et Noir.
Though that one would attract the usual complaint that "Bond has gone rouge again".
Daniel Craig is Ian Fleming's James Bond in "The Pizniss of Much Risico" :P
Trying to think outside the box here!
