Quantum of Solace

Yes, that’s the official name of the next Bond flick. I like it. It’s the one Ian Fleming title I figured would never be used since, in my crude estimate, 83.6% of the movie-going public has no idea what a “quantum” or a “solace” are. I only know because a) I have a degree in physics and spent a lot of time trying to figure out what the hell my quantum mechanics books were talking about; and b) one of my favorite pianos pieces to play back in the day was Solace by Scott Joplin.

Yeah, you didn’t see that coming, did you? I used to enjoy playing ragtime music.

2008 may not be the biggest year in Hollywood history — in fact, many are predicting financial disaster. But with Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Prince Caspian, X-files 2, Get Smart, The Dark Knight and Quantum of Solace due to hit the screens between now and next Christmas, I’m expecting to enjoy the year. Some of those titles will stink but some will be great.

I still predict the Star Trek movie will be an epic catastrophe.
