I'm just being kind Rich, I really like the Muse song and I think it fits the bill perfectly, however the deal is done and you cant pull the plug now.

Think Adele's song is a good choice. The Muse one is excellent too and should have use in the film...but keeping a Shirley Bassey influenced tune I think shows the reinvention of Bond, but keeping some traditional elements...

If that makes sense confused

Roger Moore did a similar Heineken ad back in 1974 as a tie-in with The Man With The Golden Gun, seemingly because their logo appears in the background of a bar scene.

You should have a look at some of the things Sean Connery advertised off the back of the early films. Burton menswear had a licencing deal which saw ads suggesting that Bond bought his clothing there. There's a load of them on the Thunderball (or is it Dr No? Can't recall) DVD extras. The daftest being 'Action slacks! Designed for Bond by Burton!'

The BMW product was so blatant in TDD that it rankled somewhat.

For me, some of the Pierce Brosnan outings are beginning to look as awful in retrospect as some of Moore's worst moments. The over-use of gadgets where the things seemingly only exists in order to flash a logo up was utterly tiresome, which is a shame as IMO Brosnan wasn't that bad a Bond. However, Goldeneye is the only film of his that comes across as genuinely good these days. Tomorrow Never Dies is just a glitzy retread of the not-nearly-as-good-as-everyone-says-it-is The Spy Who Loved Me, I actually thought The World Is Not Enough was OK, but Die Another Day really is the worst thing ever to have Bond's name on it. It's worse than Moonraker.

Bond films always unwittingly reflect the Britain that made them and I find them fascinating for this. The Seventies Roger Moore films, for example, were largely made by and for a Britain in crisis, suffering the industrial and economic misery. Their lightheartedness, coupled with the locations (which were much further-flung than Connery got) were mainly made to cheer us up. But compare that with the Connery films - they were much more serious and reflected Cold War paranoia. Their sense of sophistication is rooted in a serious, adult world. Same goes for the later Moore and Dalton films - they're the sign of a world moving tentatively towards glasnost.

In retrospect I think we'll see the Brosnan films as reflecting the empty confidence of Blair's Britain, all product-placement, wafer-thin plots, little engagement with the real world and lots of flashy, stylised surface appeal. Craig's Bond, by contrast, seems to be a product of the recession and the legacy of misguided middle-eastern wars. Tense, no longer trusting, very gritty and hard-hitting. I do hope the introduction of Q doesn't mean lots of gadgets with big recognisable brand logos on them.

I can only imagine 'Action Slacks' being said in the voice of Alan Partridge.

Dig out the DVD - it's not far off!

I guess they came from the days when jeans were only worn by bikers, convicts and Elvis Presley.

Is it my imagination or is Daniel Craig looking more and more like Arthur Dent out of Hitch Hikers Guide?

The comment about the 3rd act not really working is interesting but other than that all good news.

OOI, has anyone read the comments below the telegraph review? rofl

The bloke complaining about agressive women is a winner, and apparently quite a few people would like to see Russel Brand as the next Bond....

FM, they make the average PH'er look positively sane. smile

I tend not to bother with reviews, a load of talentless hacks who wouldn't know the first thing about making a decent film, most of 'em.

Yeah I can't say that I care what the reviews say when it comes to a Bond film. I'll make my decision about it. Can't wait, tickets are booked already.
