Unofficial QUANTUM OF SOLACE Theme Song Leaks!
I just endured the very worst movie of 2008 (if I'm lucky). How to make the pain go away? Let's give a listen to Joe Cornish's highly unsolicited QUANTUM OF SOLACE theme song.
There have been a lot of unfunny viral marketing parodies going around. This is not one of them. I'm generally pleased with the direction of the Bond franchise, but a part of me misses hover-gondolas, too.

Tell us soon, especially why it's worse than 'The Happening'.

What was the worst movie of 2008, Beak?
Aug. 7, 2008, 3:15 a.m. CST
... if I have the strength.
Aug. 7, 2008, 3:17 a.m. CST
This "worst movie of 2008" that is...
Aug. 7, 2008, 3:20 a.m. CST
That's where I was leaning towards. But I may just go so far as to be blasphemous and assume... Clone Wars.

Every time I see a poster for it at the movie theater it makes me laugh, though. That's one way to run an ad campaign.
Aug. 7, 2008, 3:24 a.m. CST
Kinda funny- but watch your back!!!
Aug. 7, 2008, 3:27 a.m. CST
I have no idea why such a movie was ever made. Not even die hard Star Wars nerds want to see it. It looks like it should be a at the bottom of three dollar bargain bin at Wal-Mart, a double feature pack paired with Mannequin 2.

is a comedy hero and Marvel need to get Ant Man going ASAP.

Opening this week, Sisterhood of The Travelling Pants 2 (which will obviously be amazing), Elegy (Ben "The Hood from Thunderbirds" Kingsley glowering at Penelope Cruz for a million hours), Hell Ride (Larry Bishop is a lousy director), and in a couple of weeks the new Woody Allen film, which is a strong contender considering Cassandra's Dream is easily the worst film I've seen this year, even worse than The Happening and 21.

If Beaks was at the same screening I was tonight, it was Synecdoche, New York. I didn't think it was the worst movie of the year but bottom 10 for sure and I've seen about 70.
Aug. 7, 2008, 4:06 a.m. CST
Why couldn't they explore another timeline in the Star Wars universe. I would like to see the origins of the Sith, or even their downfall 1,000's of years ago. That would be rad.
Aug. 7, 2008, 4:10 a.m. CST
And he managed to sound like David Bowie as well.
Aug. 7, 2008, 4:11 a.m. CST
I mean, I think that it's the worst film of 2008, but usually they don't show these films for critics.
Aug. 7, 2008, 4:23 a.m. CST
not alan partridge
Aug. 7, 2008, 4:33 a.m. CST
but who gives a shit. The movie will speak for itself. The Wrath of Khan is pretty retarted too, but look what that produced.
Aug. 7, 2008, 4:38 a.m. CST
Ok, I can just about deal with a bad name for a movie, but this song is shit...it ain't right, and it ain't real!!!
Aug. 7, 2008, 4:43 a.m. CST
...that would suck.

as Bond tunes are usually utter shit, with the odd exception like "Live and Let Die".<p>Oh, and Joe's a funny fucker, always liked the dude.

Everything he sung in the song, i've been quietly thinking to myself for the last couple of years.

"I want a quantum of solace, but just a quantum - I know they do big bags of solace, but I don't want'em" Look for Joe's "Dr Sexy" on YouTube as well - been singing that for weeks
Aug. 7, 2008, 7:35 a.m. CST
Lovin' the Gary Numan vibe!
Aug. 7, 2008, 7:37 a.m. CST
Looks like Saturday Night Live doing a (bad) version.

Can you just picture the bond credits rolling with "Never gonna give you up"...
Aug. 7, 2008, 8:32 a.m. CST
what about my kickass song License to Kill. It was in the greatest Bond film ever made. I am almighty, I am as large as god, he is as small as I....I am Dalton. Take that Connery.
Aug. 7, 2008, 8:35 a.m. CST
flip a rig on its side to dodge a missile, let alone make said rig do a wheelie over flames. Take THAT Brosnan you lousy SCAB!!!!!
Aug. 7, 2008, 8:50 a.m. CST
...might help to remember the title...
Aug. 7, 2008, 8:56 a.m. CST
DOOM'S solicited theme song was far superior! This song cannot touch "Modicum of Relaxation!"
Aug. 7, 2008, 10:03 a.m. CST
They made you watch Fly me to the Moon didn't they? If ya needed the money that badly there are far more better ways to earn it.
Aug. 7, 2008, 10:05 a.m. CST
He gets in the TB, gets out, rarely repeats himself. I'm voting Doom in 08. The worst Bond song ever is Madonna's "Die Another Day." (Disappointingly played over one of the better Bond opening titles ever, Bond getting his ass kicked in a North Korean prison camp, probably the only worthy part of that movie.) Actually, Pierce Brosnan had THE worst theme songs. GoldenEye was passable if forgettable, then...shit.
Aug. 7, 2008, 10:12 a.m. CST
and I gotta agree with MCVamp about the DAD opening. The World Is Not Enough thougn, had a nice epic Thames chase and a good theme song IMO. But Kleinman's credits were ugly.
Aug. 7, 2008, 10:32 a.m. CST
Better than Goldeneye? I think so. Discuss
Aug. 7, 2008, 11:06 a.m. CST
she was perfect. My 2nd choice would have been Portishead.

makes me think of urine. Let's avoid it in the future.
Aug. 7, 2008, 11:16 a.m. CST
And yes, it probably does need more hover-gondola.

Is from Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome. You knew that, right? Both by Tina Turner, whose carpet I would have steam-cleaned back in the 80s
Aug. 7, 2008, 11:40 a.m. CST
..I can't play this at the right speed.
Aug. 7, 2008, 12:05 p.m. CST
At least Brosnan has World is Not Enough, which was still a pretty good theme. The best one out of his run I'd say.

That is amazing that adds on the laughs for me. Anyway I want to know what the bad movie is because the list could be huge! Traveling Pants 2, Clone Wars, Mirrors... List goes on.
Aug. 7, 2008, 12:07 p.m. CST
Considering the date, it could be: Clone Wars, Disaster Movie, Babylon A.D., College, The Rocker, The House Bunny, or Mirrors. Nothing else seems like it could be bad enough to be called the worst movie of the year. I would say Disaster, but I don't know why they would start screening that yet. The Rocker's been screening for a while so that's a possibility. Mirrors and The House Bunny are reasonable contenders. But in terms of a potentially major disappointment, Clone Wars is a big possibility as well.
Aug. 7, 2008, 12:08 p.m. CST
Remember that one? No? Good.
Aug. 7, 2008, 12:18 p.m. CST
i thought i was going to hear the jack white/alica keys song. why even post this? was it to announce you saw a bad movie and you're not going to tell us what it was for a day? i guess you achived your goal then, because we're more curious about that, than this song.
Aug. 7, 2008, 12:57 p.m. CST
Search your feelings, you know it to be true.
Aug. 7, 2008, 1:04 p.m. CST
How much do we have to beg? Why are you killing us with the suspense?
Aug. 7, 2008, 1:10 p.m. CST
was KD Lang's "Surrender." Why they dumped it for Sheryl Crow's song, I'll never know. For me, the Lang song had that classic bond feel - and it was a nice orchestra theme throughout the action pieces in the flick. I think that A View To a Kill's theme song really was a blessing and a curse. Blessing because, hey, nice song. Curse because Bond films needed "chart toppers" rather than quality songs. Also, A View to a Kill the song reminds me that A View to a Kill the movie actually happened.
Aug. 7, 2008, 1:22 p.m. CST
That may even be the worst song of her career (I realize the boldness of this statement). Sigmund Freud............. analyze this...

Aug. 7, 2008, 3:15 p.m. CST
without sounding completely fucking corny?
Aug. 7, 2008, 3:23 p.m. CST
wtf?? this movie is shaping up to be shit. a new drinking game for these movie is, drink everytime jedi dench says some psychobabble speech or when craig runs, you'll be unconscious in 5 minutes.
Aug. 7, 2008, 3:28 p.m. CST
who think this is real, thank you for keeping me amused at work.
Aug. 7, 2008, 3:40 p.m. CST
Best: 1) Live and let die - Paul McCartey 2)The World is not Enough - Garbage 3) Nobody does it better - Carly Simon 4)Goldfinger - Shirley Bassy 5) A view to a Kill - Duran Duran. Worst: 1)Moonraker. 2)You know my name _ Chris Cronell 3) The living daylights - Ah-ha..... Im wondering what the worst movie of 2008 is for Mr. Beaks..Im Betting Disaster Movie or Clone Wars
Aug. 7, 2008, 4:39 p.m. CST
track? With Alicia Keys. Am I mistaken?
Aug. 7, 2008, 5:10 p.m. CST
Thats what I heard to.
Aug. 7, 2008, 5:14 p.m. CST
Most anticipated —by me— AICN article ever! ;)
Aug. 7, 2008, 7:40 p.m. CST
i usually read the article first, but i just clicked on the video and kept reading other AICN pages...then i was like "What the FUCK is Jack White smoking???" and finally realized it wasn't him. lol thanks for the laugh mrbeaks. OH! And do us a favor? When you post that already infamous review, be sure to dub the review as the Worst Movie of 2008 kk? Thanks :D
Aug. 7, 2008, 7:57 p.m. CST
when the female producer took over the franchise she dislodged mr. bond's testicles like a mad villain and ate them.
Aug. 7, 2008, 8:20 p.m. CST
Aug. 7, 2008, 8:22 p.m. CST
Pineapple Express. The signs are all there.
Aug. 7, 2008, 8:23 p.m. CST
Nevermind didn't see the article below.
Aug. 7, 2008, 8:50 p.m. CST
Biggest. Whoosh. Ever.
Aug. 7, 2008, 11:32 p.m. CST
Are they high?! Geez, at this point, might was well bring Amy to do the theme. OMG, even as I'm typing up this post, the stupid theme is playing....MAKE IT STOP!!!!
Aug. 8, 2008, 1:11 p.m. CST
Which means not funny at all.
Aug. 8, 2008, 3:35 p.m. CST
I definitely lost it at that point. Brilliant.
Aug. 9, 2008, 3:59 p.m. CST
I dump my lame-ass play on word since everyone left the TB. By the way, what's the worst '08 flick, Beaks? You're such a tease!
Aug. 9, 2008, 6:12 p.m. CST
what mrbeaks thought was the worst movie of the year.. we only got his pineapple express review, which was rather positive..unless i read it wrong.
