This is not James Bond anymore...

.... not only that Daniel Craig is blonde, he will drive a Ford Mondeo with Automatic..
and I read in our newspaper there are no Martinis anymore, the new JB will take a Heineken beer

Oh....I think I feel faint. What..? No martinis? Perish the thought. And a ford??? This really is too much for one person to bear. I believe I shall return to my bed until someone corrects these situations.

Seriously, tinkering with James Bond would be like giving Betty Boop breast reduction surgery and the morals of a nun. Just bad and wrong, if you ask me.

What was your favourite 007 movie? Mine was Live and Let Die. I've got a thing for voodoo, and an even bigger thing for New Orleans.

Blame the custom of product placements in films Ford and the beer company must have bid highest to get their products into shot!

AMEN!!!!!

My dad has seen & has recorded every James Bond movie.

VB, I loved Live & Let Die also, but I think my favorite is Goldfinger.

In high school drama class we had to take a song & either sing or lip sync it. I did Goldfinger, somewhere at my parents there's a great blackmail tape of that day!

Am I the only one....or did anyone else have to watch Bond movies a couple of times before you figured out all the intrigue and plot twists?

I've only ever watched one JB movie - with Sean Connery - WAAAAY back when I was lovestruck and the boyfriend was keen to see it.

BUT, I had read every JB novel by the time I was 15. I just didn't think the films could hold a candle to the books! However, I bet if I read them now, I'd be appalled at how hackneyed and out of date they would appear to me!

It's just sick and wrong.

007 is tall dark and handsome NOT blonde!!
And sorry but... beer? It just takes away some of the sexiness.

Well that is one Bond film I will not be seeing. How disappointing!

Crewsk, Goldfinger is my favorite as well.

Well, I wasn't focused on the "no martini" thing, but I have seen the
trailers for the film and it looks really good. I think he could potentially
make a great Bond, but only time will tell. I'll give the guy a chance
by waiting to see the movie before I draw my conclusions.

Angel Heart scared the bejibberies out of me!!!!!!!!!!

Why would one mess with James Bond? We can ALL drive a Ford, gadgets or not. The "romance" of James Bond and what he portrays will be lost.

But I can honestly say that since I was MUCH younger the James Bond men just haven't been the same - After Roger Moore and Sean Connery I shut down to anyone portraying 007
