Check this out: http://entertainment.excite.co.uk/news/movies/15629

The brewery is paying a six-figure sum for the privilege, apparently. At the end, the article suggests that Bond drinks beer in Casino Royale, not martini. Anybody know the book?

I was in my early teens when I read them, so I can't confirm that!

We just saw the movie this weekend and I don't remember good ole James having a beer at all.

Have to admit I kinda like this new guy.

But the "Crouching Dragon Hidden Tiger" stunt moves were a bit over the top.

We'll compare more notes after you've seen it, Trish.

Apologies to all those Chinese stunt movie fans - it's "Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon," isn't it?

I'm confused with the statement about martinis being 'out'. They're really still popular around here.

How about not having a stunning lady walk out of the water (shades of Halle Berry) but instead....James comes ashore. What's up with that?

A FORD! Take me now...!

That's right Mud. It's "Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon" played by Chow Yuen Fatt and Michelle Yeoh, former Miss Malaysia, who played James Bond's girl in Tomorrow Never Dies.

Actually, Jan, I didn't mind watching James come dripping out of the water.........

LOL, I have to get used to the new Bond. I never really cared for Pierce Brosnan...I'm a Connery and Moore fan.
