From CNN.com: Producers reveal title of new James Bond
Quantum of Solace. Â Sounds like someone borrowed the George Lucas Random Movie Name Generator again. Â Quantum of Solace makes no sense. Â A quantum is a discrete amount of something, certainly not solace. Can solace be even measured at all?Â
So who thought of this title?
Surprisingly, Ian Fleming. It’s actually a short story written by Fleming that has James Bond, but no action and where he’s not even the main character. Â Wikipedia has a brief summary of the story. James Bond movie plots (an oxymoron?) sometimes have little to do with the the story in which the movie name was taken.
