The 602 Club: A Geekery Speakeasy
48: Instagramming Villains

Quantum of Solace.

Just hours before the the start of Writers Guild of America Strike on November 7th, 2007, Paul Haggis finished the script for the new James Bond movie. Unfortunately the strike would keep him from being able to polish the script, a task that would fall to actor Daniel Craig and director Marc Forster during filming.

In this episode of The 602 Club Matthew Rushing is joined by John Champion to talk about Quantum of Solace. We discuss Bond vs the writers, it being a sequel, growing Bond, heroes and villains being all mixed up, the villain and Quantum, things we liked and didn’t, watching the movie now, ratings, the song and our final thoughts.
