James Bond makes a big mistake

The new James Bond film, Skyfall will have a big change as to Bond's choice of drink. It will not have vodka martinis. You know the line that Bond says when he orders it. "Shaken not stirred." His drink will be Heineken beer. Beer?

Big mistake. James Bond's former drink spoke of class and sophistication. Beer does not. And while it was done to earn money to make the movie, it speaks to a troubling direction the Bond franchise is going. You fear what is next? Budweiser? And the last Bond movie, Quantum of Solace (2008) was joyless. Gone are the over the top stuff like volcanic lairs which admittedly are crazy BUT FUN. Bond is serious and commercial. Yawn. Better make it fun, Sony, or expect Bond to be eliminated not by a villain but by fan indifference.

You won't be hearing this anymore.

Teaser trailer for Skyfall.
