James Bond movie titles

So the new Bond film is to be called Quantum of Solace. What’s with that? This is not sticking to the rules of Bond movie titles. You take a well known phrase and substitute the word ‘die’: Live and let live, becomes ‘Live and Let Die‘. Live another day becomes ‘Die Another Day’.

But they moved the goalposts by turning tomorrow never comes into ‘Tomorrow Never Dies‘. What does ‘tomorrow never dies’ mean? Whatever, it gives us a license to thrill, as we can now take any phrase, insert the word ‘die’, and not worry too much about it making sense. How about these:

  • The Camera Cannot Die
  • Dying on Borrowed Time
  • Die Like a Fish
  • Easy as Die
  • Die Off the Handle
  • Hell or Die Water
  • Die Easy, Live Hard
  • He Who Can Does, He Who Cannot Dies
  • A Bird in the Hand is Worth Two in the Die

I’m sure Comedy Club readers can come up with more.

The Simpsons: Best movie clip

Everyone knows that the secret of comedy is… (perfectly judged pause) …timing. The best recent example is this scene from the Simpsons Movie, where Homer challenges Bart to ride naked on his skateboard to get a Krusty Burger. Every moment of this is timed to perfection, from Homer’s childish taunts to Bart’s final humiliation. And the pacing is just superb.
