How many noticed that in the short scene at -0.44 when 007 was walking through the kitchen the film negative was reversed? BTW, it should be; "The name's Bond, James Bond."

I've got a friend, who works in composites, who will now and again (at a bar) introduce himself thus wise:
"My name is bond; adhesive bond."
Won't be starring at a night club anywhere near you any time soon.

Good ammusing ad. Very unfit.

I have a bond, Barclay Bond, I`ve had it for 4 years and very uninteresting it is. Can`t wait for the end of this year to terminate it.

Yes, noticed it at once- the hanky in the dj pocket.

Always best to keep abreast of these things.

Cute ad (and it should be effective).
I thought Daniel Craig said he was done with playing James Bond - didn't want to do it anymore. Is he doing the new Bond flick (or is that part of the joke)?

The one mentioned coming out is his last, he agreed to do that one extra, shame really as he is by far the best Bond..

Even in my eyes surpassing Connery and that's saying something, he has a raw gritty edge to him.

Couldn't agree less:

If you are going to do the licensed to kill bit, it's not advisable to look like you have a:
raw gritty edge
it might get you on the slab before your time.
Connery on the other hand had more of the teddy bear, gigolo look, and with that "ladies gun" (Beretta), he couldn't be taken seriously.

It matters not how big the gun or small the bullet, it is where you put the bullet that matters.

True though that a .455 will go through things that a 7.62 won't.

Bond's pistol was a Walther PPK in .038 calibre.

It was a Beretta in the first four or five books, then the Walther PPK from then on.
I think it was the same gun that Fleming himself used in the Navy.
In the books by John Gardener I'm sure he used something else, but can't remember exactly what it was.

Connery was the original and the best, but he should have stopped before the last one of his.

Roger Moore was always The Saint to me, and he was way too old for the last couple of movies, middle-aged spread was a bit apparent.

I liked Pierce Brosnan, enough tough guy to get the job done, but with a sense of humour that Daniel doesn't seem to display.

If by "the last one" you mean "Never Say Never Again", that's not even recognized as some as being a Bond movie - it was created outside the Bond franchise and the plot is nothing more than a mediocre rehash of "Thunderball" (which, coincidentally, I think is the best Sean Connery Bond flick). In fact, since it's not officially a Bond film, it wasn't included in my James Bond 'Ultimate Collection' box set
Amazon Amazon
(same thing applies to the original Peter Sellers version of Casino Royale - it's not officially a Bond film).
I never liked Roger Moore as James Bond - not "macho" enough (my sister goes a bit further and says Moore is too effeminate). I think Brosnan made a really good Bond - people of my generation will always think Connery was the best Bond, but Brosnan was close. I agree that Daniel Craig is a bit too serious - Brosnan was much better in that regard.
