Just…look up the words…

I love the title Quantum of Solace.  I’ve loved it since I heard it and I’m surprised that no one else seems to get it.   Maybe it’s just too literary of a title for a Bond movie, but it works if you think of it like this:

The smallest quantity of some physical property that a system can possess.


Comfort in sorrow, misfortune, or distress; consolation.

Considering that this movie is to be a sequel to Casino Royale in which, among other things,

Bond seeks revenge for the death of Vesper Lynd

doesn’t this movie and its title ask, what will Mr. Bond do for his quantum of solace?
