(Seattle Times)   You might think it funny to be named Broccoli. But as 50% owners of the James Bond franchise, the Broccoli family have been laughing all the way to the bank for most of the last half-century   (seattletimes.com) divider line 28

She used to be named Candi, but she read that Broccoli is better for you.

If Skyfall is another Quantum of Solace I'm going to get all stabby.

If it's another Casino Royale, I will set up a Broccoli Alter at my farm and worship her. I will grow broccoli and ritualistically consume it in her name....

So it is just as bad as any other Adele songs or James Bond theme. I supposed "A View to a Kill" and the one from Goldfinger weren't too horrible.

From what I understand, QOS sucked because the script was written during the writer's strike. I expect Skyfall to be better.

"You know my Name" from Casino Royale was awesome. But yeah, I really don't care about the opening theme song that much.

I saw an interview with Daniel Craig where he was apologizing for QOS. He said the script was basically written by him and the director, and frequently pages were written on the day of shooting. His comment was "I'm an actor, not a writer, and it showed." (paraphrased)

Makes sense. Still doesn't explain the overzealous editor, though. The fights were incomprehensible.

The editing on QOS was so horrible it made a Michael Bay film look calm, cool and collected. Plus it appears more and more that the director was in over his head. (Look at the trouble he's having with "World War Z") So you take shoddy script + questionable director + bad editing and that's why "Solace" ended up like it did.

Also... "Live and Let Die" is a pretty damn good song.

Also, don't forget "Nobody does it better" by Carly Simon is a Bond theme.

There's nothing funny about broccoli.

However, steamed, with a splash of butter and a shake of Lawry's seasoned salt* there's a lot of DELICIOUS about broccoli.

*Trust me- I know it sounds weird, but it's freaking awesome.

Completely disagree. It's a classic bond theme in the Shirley Bassey vein .Great orchestration, well produced.

Among the best of them.

Growing up, the Lee's who lived next door oldest son was named "Broc". I kid you not. He was much younger than me so I didn't have school with the kid, but I bet he took a lot of flak for his name.

Dropping the iconic martini for a Heineken sponsorship is "protecting the franchise"?
