At first blush, Die Another Day is sensical enough but really, what day? Had one died yesterday the point would be moot and one can’t die tomorrow since, as we saw in 1997, tomorrow never dies. Admittedly, Die At Some Point In The Future, though true, lacks stickiness. Things really turned weird after Daniel Craig’s first film Casino Royale. Whatever Quantum of Solace, his dark follow up, means is well beyond the normal cognitive abilities of the layperson. Sure, we know what a small unit of comfort may be but just because one can decipher something doesn’t mean the thing itself makes sense. It’s like ordering a cup of C8H10N4O2, instead of a cup of coffee.
