    Yeah, I think it grew to "acceptable" for me once I got past the initial hearing. It's definitely stamped in the Bond mold, it was just a little too obviously so for me. I've felt like some of the other themes took the motifs and did them more originally.

    I think "Live or Let Die" is probably the most original song of the bunch that carries the motif successfully, and it probably is selected in the top 2-3 bond songs of all time whenever there is a ranking. "Die Another Day" was very original, but didn't seem to really express the brand to me.

    What's funny is that I hated "Another Way to Die" when I first heard it, and now I rather like it.

    Yeah, The World is Not Enough comes specifically to mind. I don't even like Gwen Stefani much, but that was a good theme song that also really worked as just a song.

    Why didn't they make "Another Way to Die" the TITLE of a Bond MOVIE?

    Well, anything by Jack White is ear-stabbing crap anyway.
    I just listened to this and I really like it. I enjoy the contrast between Jack White's gritty style and Alicia Keys' sultry voice. (Then again, I adore Jack White and he can pretty much do no wrong in my eyes. )

    Honestly. I mean, "quantum of Solace" seems still to be such a vacuous name -- not sure what it even means. Another Way to Die definitely sounds like a Bond movie.

    That's another song that I ended up really liking (by Garbage? Is that right?), that I hadn't expected to.

    Getting back into older songs that diverged from the Bond motif, I did like Nobody Does It Better but hated All-Time High.

    Nice! Daniel Craig is still blonde, though.

    I'm not really bothered by the martini scenes, I'm more bothered by the idea of putting the gun barrel sequence at the end of the movie instead of the beginning. It really makes no sense. The gun barrel is an iconic moment that draws you into the world of James Bond. It changes the feel from an average spy movie to a James Bond movie immediately. It was designed as an opener, but having it as a closer is just a silly artsy change that really has no purpose.

    I understood the gun barrel placement in Casino Royale, and I thought it worked really well, but it's time to put it where it belongs again.
    No, it isn't.

    Because every other Bond movie has the word "DIE" in the title.

    Out of 23 James Bond movies:
    1. Live and Let Die
    2. Tomorrow Never Dies
    3. Die Another Day

    I think it's a little less than that.

    And yes, Another Way to Die is a more quality title than Quantum of Solace.

    Indeed. And at least Quantum of Solace wasn't the title for a real Bond movie. Quantum would be even less of a Bond movie than Never Say Never Again if it weren't for Albert Broccoli's (and his offspring) name in the credits.

    The best Bond title ever was Octopussy.

    Pssh. The title was the least of that movies problems.

    Better yet, it was even an actual part of the Bond canon by Fleming.
