Finally watched it. I enjoyed it a good bit, but would put it only above QOS for Crain's films.

That could have been Skyfall's title.

I hear they ditched it as the working title because, while Sam Mendes thought it would be fitting for that particular film, the rest of the production team found it to be in poor taste.

There was even another working title for Skyfall before they ended up going for the "single word about the plot" route - Once Upon A Spy. I still can't decide if I like that as a potential title for a future Bond film or if it sounds too much like a parody.

Of course, there's plenty of Fleming plot devices and chapter titles that would make cool titles. Depending on what they do with Blofeld in the next film, they could finally spare "Shatterhand" as the title and incorporate elements of the YOLT novel (which is still largely unused). I dig the one word titles and I certainly can't argue with more Fleming. They best stay away from the other continuation novels though. Most of those titles are garbage.

As far as titles go, Craig has had the best string of titles since the Moore days. Dalton had one Fleming and one incredibly generic one, Brosnan had two good ones (and they were Fleming-related) and two crap ones. QOS is a mouthful but hey, it's Fleming, so Craig gets the edge.

For direct Fleming titles, all we have left are:

- The Property of a Lady (would have made sense for Vesper's necklace)

- The Hildebrand Rarity (boring)

- 007 In New York (:lol:)

- Risico (could be decent for a villain or plot name, but there were enough complaints about QOS being a "difficult" title that I'm sure EON will avoid it, although Michael Wilson has noted he's fond of it)

Edit: Wow, I only just clued in to your poor taste joke. :lol:

Slow on the uptake there, eh? :lol:

Once Upon A Spy was the Skyfall treatment where M had an affair with an East German soldier during the Cold War and Bond had to kill her in the end, right? Interesting idea, but probably for the best they scrapped it.

I really hope Shatterhand happens someday. Hell, get Mendes for one final go, do Shatterhand, and have the Mendes trilogy be all one-word "S" titles. There really is no better time to do Shatterhand than right now.

On a tangent - anyone seen these yet?

That was the plot of Peter Morgan's original treatment, but it was scrapped when he left the project during the MGM financial troubles. I think "Once Upon A Spy" was actually a Purvis and Wade working title so that came later. I could be remembering it wrong but I'm sure they mentioned it in an interview. It's also worth noting that Morgan claimed that the eventual script kept his "big hook" but Mendes denied that - the idea to have M die was discussed even before QOS so it was nothing new, at least not to Morgan's credit.

I agree with the Shatterhand business. The timing couldn't be better to finally give that angle some screen justice, especially with Craig and Waltz.

I heard about that beer tie-in but I haven't seen a bottle yet - I haven't been actively looking though. Pretty cool!

Edit: Also yeah, it's been a long day. :lol:

Whatever they call it, I hope they don't fuck it up. Keep Purvis and Wade on.

SPECTRE steel preordered from Best Buy and I'll have it the day of release. Better than Skyfall last time around which I had to order from the UK.
