tmz ^

Posted on 05/23/2012 3:36:13 PM PDT by Perdogg

They don't make 'em like they used to -- at least according to the guy who played James Bond in 1969, who's pissed the new Bond film has axed 007's signature martini ... in favor of a corporate-sponsored beer.

I heard there was very serious talk about putting a lot of GAY stuff in the movie. In the last one, too (not silly...I mean GAY).

A good sign the first Bond was clueless.

It seems to me that a man of taste culture like Sir Jame Bond could could find a better brew.

"Shaken not stirred?"

With a Heinie, that could turn into quite a slapstick comedy...

In the novel, The Man With Golden Gun, Bond drinks “Red Stripe”.

I seem to recall Lazenby’s JB “advertising” Hennessey in OHMSS. The only time I ever saw billboards for Hennessey in the city was in the projects, where it was the preferred Cognac for pimps. Will Looter Guy be making a guest shot in “Skyfall” to give his approval for “Heinie ?”

47 million? Yeah, I’d change the character to drinking beer for that kind of money. Don’t think Grey Goose or anyone else for that matter is stupid enough to plop down that kind of dough to change it again.

Even the Olde English won't drink that stuff.

Today's 007 would know micro brews.

Great beers. Scary names.

In the 1980s, in the wake of the “AIDS CRISIS”, they made Bond monogamous.

You left out the one constant. To my knowledge, every Bond has worn an Omega time piece.

Lazenby adds, it's sad filmmakers will always "go where the money is."

Because actors and everybody else in the world never thinks about squeezing the last dollar they can out of someone, right? If Heinie offered me 45 million bucks, I could write a scene in the movie with Bond drinking a Heinekin also. What's the big deal?

In one of the novels, I’m pretty sure Bond drinks a San Miguel in either Hong Kong or Macao.

It’d be one thing if he was just having a beer in a scene. But replacing the martini altogether? Lame.

It didn't used to, Colt 45 had that down, though, even the aroma--but it's been over 20 years since I drank, and things change.

Eh, in the late 80s they replaced Bond's signature car since the Connery era, an Aston Martin, with a BMW because of the corporate sponsors at the time. Bond fans predictably went nuts (I believe they returned to Astro Marins during the Pierce Brosnan era)

I'm more upset this guy is still portraying "James Bond" (and a bunch of fanboys on the internet claim casting a guy who looks and sounds nothing like Bond is somehow "closer to the books"):

A lot of people really like him as you can see from this thread. I wonder how many are women who just think he’s attractive? ;D

I’m not keen on him either, though not to the extent as you and DJ.

I just don’t feel like I’m watching James Bond.

If you want a “dark” Bond that still has the Bond charm see Dalton (my favorite after young Connery).
