How is Risico pronounced, then? It might be REE-SEE-CO, RI-SICK-O or even REE-SICK-O. 

 

I'd say REE-SEE-CO, considering it's Enrico Colombo's way to pronounce "risk" with an italian accent. Risk, in italian, is pronounced "rees-kee-o".

Both of those are great. If Fleming had named Goldfinger either of those two things, we wouldn't bat an eye. I also like DRAGON SPOOR from DR NO.

DRAGON SPOOR? Why not just call it "Bird Guano"?


Instead of SHATTERHAND,  I think THE GARDEN OF DEATH would be a good homage to the novel YOLT. (Even though it contains the dreaded "kill/die/death/etc".

Unless they're going to start using some of the chapter titles (I would like to see "A Whisper of Hate" as a title), then I'd say we're out of usable Fleming titles. The ones that remain just aren't suitable for titles of a blockbuster film.

 I'd vouch for using chapter titles. Some of them are better than the actual book titles themselves, in my opinion...

 

My vote would be for that route, or complete originals akin to Fleming lore.

I'd still bet anything we get RISICO and (THE)PROPERTY OF A LADY as film titles at some point. Both are suitably Bondian titles and would be stronger than any of the viable chapter titles people have suggested.

I think Devil May Care and Carte Blanche are great titles.

I would agree that Devil May Care is a good title, very good in fact, but it's unfortunately tied to an awful novel that EON would be wise to pretend doesn't exist.

I've always been a fan of "Shatterhand".  It fits in with other one word titles--Goldfinger, Thunderball, Moonraker, even GoldenEye--in a way that "Risico" just doesn't cut it.  Plus, Bond 23-25 would become known as the 'S Trilogy'--Skyfall, SPECTRE, Shatterhand.  Note also the villain names, potential or otherwise--Sylva, Stavros, Serrafimo, Spang, and perhaps a Spectreville location.  Maybe they can combine unused elements of the novels DAF and YOLT together in Bond 25.

 

But "Garden of Death" is growing on me.  It has that Flemingesque way of turning a phrase--how can a spy love, the whole world not be enough, or you live twice?  While "Die" has been in three Bond titles, the word "Death" has yet to make an appearance.  Plus this title was actually used by Fleming for a chapter.

 

By the way, The Wolverine movie is nearly an adaptation of the novel You Only Live Twice.  It has a lot of parallels with the character, locales, storyline and plot.

I like Garden of Death.

 

Casino Royale and Skyfall were named after a place, just like Quantum of Solace and SPECTRE were named after an organization, it'd be cool to end Craig's tenure with "Garden of Death".

I'd like this to be the 'S' trilogy. Skyfall, SPECTRE and Shatterhand.

I thought you were making a title suggestion... either way, that whole thing is painful.

Shatterhand was an old favorite of mine. One Idea I had was to cast Steven Seagal as the villain either Blofeld or a decendant thereof and have him be such a formidable opponent that he used thuggish underlings to do his dirty work, not because he couldn't do it himself, but because the people he had killed weren't worthy of his direct action.

Yes, I was making a title suggestion.

Shatterhand is the best title.

I also like The Undertaker┬┤s Wind and Warhead.

I know they both come from Fleming, but...The Undertaker's Wind....Shatterhand...both rather foul, eh ?  Though I still like using Shatterhand as a character name, I expect the jokes will fly like, well, like something that just hit the fan.

Both "Shatterhand" and "The Undertaker's Wind" would be terrible titles, wither it be for a Bond film or just any film in general.

After that one scene in SPECTRE I highly doubt we'll be seeing THE HILDEBRANDT RARITY as a title...

 

...although I thought that was very clever how they worked it in.

Good to know. 

 

Hopefully EON will, since they're all about being self-referential these days, manage to work in references to "Risico", "The Undertaker's Wind", and "Shatterhand" into the next film so that we don't have to worry about those becoming the titles of future Bond films.

SPOILER ALERT

SPOILER ALERT

Stop NOW if you've not yet seen SPECTRE !

Ok, here it comes...How DOES one accomplish that clever "Invisible as an Aston Martin in the Snow" effect with text ???   Indeed !  It was extremely clever and enjoyable the way "The Hildebrand Rarity" made it into SPECTRE.
