Topic: Future title suggestions

I couldn`t find the old thread so I started a new one.
I`m reading my second William Boyd novel now (I`ll write a review) and saw  the expression "The devil`s work is never done". I think The Devil`s Work sounds great to me. Both Bond`s line of work and the actions of the villan could be called The Devil`s Work

Re: Future title suggestions

If there ever is a Bond movie with a female lead villian, "Every Rose Has Its Thorn" would be a good title.

Thou Shalt Kill
The Genome Device
Biggest Bang Theory
Future Imperfectum
Not The Fall That Kills
To Be Or Not
On Borrowed Time
For Love Of The Games

Come to think of it, how much does Bond get paid for each assignment.

Re: Future title suggestions

I think the best suggestion yet is "Every Rose has its Thorn" (other than my suggestion, that is ..) Bond movies are the only action movies with long titles and those are often among the best Bond titles.

Re: Future title suggestions

Thanks! I see it`s very tempting to many to post jokey suggestions on threads like this. Very undertandable, but also sometimes a bit irritating. Perhaps someone could start a joke title thread?

Re: Future title suggestions

Here's my suggestion: "Never Say Roger Again"  ajb007/lol

Seriously, though, as I have said before I really think it would be great if they could build a film around the title "Shatterhand". For some reason I really like that name, and perhaps they could use it as the title of the film in which Blofeld is re-introduced (Blofeld used Shatterhand as an alias in the novel "You Only Live Twice").

"Felix Leiter, a brother from Langley."

Yeah, I enjoy the serious creativity here!

More:

Dragon Fire
Like Birds Of Pray
Melt Down
Serpent In The Garden Of Evil

Re: Future title suggestions

I think the point of the serpent is that it intrudes in a GOOD garden. The contrast is what makes the serpent in the garden work. Melt down seems too much like a standard action/disasters movie. Birds of Prey and Dragon Fire are pretty good.

There are some Fleming titles that are very good such as Shatterhand, but that has been debated a lot elsewhere.

Re: Future title suggestions

If the plot involves Japan there are three variations of the same theme I find intereting:

Kabuki
Kabuki Play
The Kabuki Mask

Kabujki is off cource the traditional form of theatre in Japan. It is very stylized and the actors wear very dramatic masks. In a plot involving covert action and hidden/false identities those titles would work nicely.
Further to the south is Indonesia, a great and exotic nation Bond has never been to. There they have shadow puppet theatre plays. What about:

Shadow Play

Shadow Puppets

Re: Future title suggestions

I'd like to see them use Brokenclaw. I also don't care what other titles they use. Just include the words Gold, Death, Die or Kill.....please!!

Some people would complain even if you hang them with a new rope

Like Birds Of Pray.
See, there's this Monastery in Spain, and they use drugs to convert covert agents from various countries to do their evil international bidding, and when finished with them, get the agents to leap off tall buildings and cliffs. Bond is sent in to investigate, but uncovers much more than just a simple brainwashing scheme...

Re: Future title suggestions

Perhaps ....

Here is an idea I have posted in the past, but I think it`s good enough to be repeated:

The Ice Kiss

The Kiss of Ice


I actually prefer "The Ice Kiss" myself. The idea is from a Norwegian book and movie based on a true story that is very close to Vesper Lynd`s tragic fate.
