If you had "Quantum of Solace" in the office pool

The Bond 22 project finally has a name. The Broccolis finally revealed the name to be Quantum of Solace. That is one of the handful of remaining Bond titles created by Ian Fleming. It should send 13-year-old boys who are mainly interested in ... well, what 13-year-old boys are interested in ... scrambling to the dictionary. That's a good thing. It's not just a unique title among action films. It's pretty unique among most films. Imagine ("Rambo 17: Quantum of Solace.") It promises to keep the grittier but still fanciful direction of Casino Royale, and, since you have to explain it, it promises at least one intelligent conversation during the run time of the film.
