            Why kill the bad guy? Just leave him in the desert to rot.

                          I guess Damien would be too cliché.

                          That doesn't explain Strawberry Fields.

                              To increase accuracy, weird screaming sounds should be made while swinging an axe.

                                Unlike most Bond Villians Dominic Greene is really scary because what he is doing could be true. Environmentalists creating environmental disasters and then blaming governments and telling the world that he can save the day.

                                  Look before you swing an axe; it will prevent your foot from having split ends.

                                    Oil is at a premium, and yet there's enough to go around that you can messily murder a woman associated with MI6 in a high-profile hotel without arousing suspicion.

                                        British agents can get away with anything- including blatant insubordination and assaulting fellow agents. The director won't care, because he's a big strong man.

                                          Take a random shot of jumping from a plane with one chute, land in a sink hole and put two and two together.

                                            The 'Vesper' martini drink is described as being three measures (9 ounces) of gin (Gordon's was Bond's choice), one measure (3 ounces) of vodka (Bond preferred a grain vodka be used; e.g. Absolut) and half a measure (1.5 ounces) of Kina Lillet. The ingredients are shaken over ice until cold, served in a cocktail glass with a slice of lemon peel for garnish. Kina Lillet has not been made since 1985 and the modern substitute would be Lillet Blanc, made by the same company, Lillet, based in Podensac, France. This also creates somewhat of an anachronism as this movie is clearly set in the present, where Kina Lillet would no longer be available.
