The connection between James Bond and dead monkeys?

James Bond's next villain

James Bond's next villain

This guy asked, not me.

The most surprising thing about the newest James Bond film “Quantum of Solace” is the premise: not a villain or a syndicate, but the loss of an environmental service in a poor, developing country. The loss of freshwater resources in Bolivia causes local hardship and destabilizes a sovereign government, setting the stage for 106 minutes of unadulterated action.

Ohhhhh.  Environment.  Right.  And here I was thinking that it was that calling the movie “James Bond and the Tale of the Dead Monkeys” is about a good a title — and way more straightforward than “Quantum of Solace.”
