The title of the next James Bond outing, the 22nd in the super-spy series, finally has a title: Quantum Of Solace. As The Hollywood Reporter points out, the name comes from one of the five Ian Fleming short stories collected under the name For Your Eyes Only, resulting in a "maelstrom of fanboy hand-wringing and discussion," most of which centers on the fact that the stand-alone story is about a dinner party where Bond is just one of many guests. Sounds…exciting? Of course, in the non-fanboy realm, most reactions to the title could be fairly summed up as, "Huh?" Although it's admirable that they're adhering so closely to the source material, between Quantum Of Solace and Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull, it's beginning to look like Hollywood got a magnetic poetry kit for Christmas.
