The name's 25. Bond 25, or rather, it's NTTD.

    Which as long as Craig remains I am fine with it.


    While people complain about the 3 year gap to me it makes sense because sadly I would say 80% of Fleming's story ideas have been adapted in some way so really we are starting from square one. Honestly while some might complain it really feels like just yesterday Skyfall had just been released and we were talking about Bond 24. Now we have Spectre and as long the rumors are good and the news comes every few months like last time I will be a happy camper. Realistically I would love it if Ubisoft got the gaming rights and developed a new bond video game for spring 2017 so we wont have to wait to long for a Craig bond story (Blond Stone and Goldeneye helped ease the pain between Quantum of Solace and Skyfall a Lot)

    I do hope we get a few good title rumors last time we got no good rumors except for that dumb Come and Dive nonsense.

    Sound Of Silence

    Exemplar (After M's obituary in Skyfall "an exemplar of British fortitude)

    Brocken bow

    The Trystyng - Its from the Lewis Carrol poem Phantasmagoria

    A Spectre has first choice,
    by right, In filling up a vacancy;
    Then Phantom, Goblin, Elf, and Sprite
    If all these fail them, they invite
    The nicest Ghoul that they can see.

    @SirHilaryBray Is the theme for the Sound of Silence the Simon and Garfunkel song?

    Only if the wife of Charles Robinson is in the film and that isn t going to happen.

    Great song, though.

    There is an opening for THE HIDEBRANT RARITY now.


    I'd say the use of that name as an in-joke in SP has intentionally killed off any possibility of it being used as a film title. No great loss.

    I will say you're probably right, but to me it is a great loss if they don't use it.

    But, they now have an entry into a potential storyline involving the safe house if they do deign to use the title.

    I assume over the next 30 years all four remaining Fleming title swill be used (even the much maligned 007 IN NEW YORK, which I alone seem to think is an outstanding and dynamic title).

    I like Exemplar, it's unusual without being as weird as Quantum of Solace. It's a very British sounding word even without the M quote.

    Bond in the Aston, trying out the "Atmosphere" button, 009s song of choice kicking in:

    NOOOO!

    Ha ha, that was the first thing that entered my mind seeing that scene, but I wouldn t mind the title.

    It Only Burns When I Pee

    Yes, has a natural vibe, that one. Also would make a good title for the theme song.

    I think an early betting favourite for B25, based on how B24 ended, is Shatterhand.

    I am sure that's been mentioned but I'll put it on the table again

    Well, in Germany that could cause some confusionb, as "Shatterhand" or rather "Old Shatterhand" for a lot of people is a character in the novels of one Karl Mey, Shatterhand beeing the blood brother of the nobel Apache Winnetou. Also coiuld get problems with the name, if "Shatterhand" is under copyright protection by the estate of Karl Mey.

  • Just flicking through the OHMSS novel again for chapter title plundering:

    If you drop the definite article, "Gambit of Shame" is rather nifty
    Obviously, "All the Time in the World" is a good one but then you bring comparisons with the other movie/song (you could go on that route - All Time High, Nobody Does it Better etc)
    Not a lot else useful actually - "Hell's Delight" ?

    I still think, since the DC films, that "Property of a Lady" is a goer these days.
    I do love "Risico" but not in the way Fleming intended - a man saying 'risk' - but re-pronouncing it 'Riseeko'. And I'm sure you could get a song out of that.

    There's "Starfire" from the comics though we're back to 'S' again

    Has Fleming himself got any other good phrases or names from his personal life a la "Goldeneye" (or his other writing?)

    Or anything in the Tennyson poem read by M in 'Skyfall':

    Tho' much is taken, much abides; and though
    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are;
    One equal temper of heroic hearts,
    Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
    To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.......?

    For me the title of a Bond film faces the same dilemma of a Bond song. It needs to be Bondian/Fleming-esque without it feeling like pastiche.

    If we take the ending of Spectre as
    Bond has left MI6 to start a new life with Madeleine
    , do you think there is a call for using the title Licence Renewed?

    I like it. I was just thinking that LTK being called LTK makes no sense since he loses it. Obv it was originally going to be called Licence Revoked.
