    Just in case someone missed it :)

    I also find they put quite funny setup together. Scenography people have no clue about hifi... definitely :)

    I have no idea about stereos either, you going to have to explain it dude.

    Or is it a reference to the original, I seem to remember one of the main characters going into a hi-fi shop - or i may have got that completely wrong, its been a while since i saw the original

    There's also another blu-ray drive somewhere in the film. I think it was in Bon'd car, but i may be wrong.

    Csino Royale stinks of SONY. All laptops in the film are SONY, all the phones are SONY ect

    The film still rocks though :D

    Which kind of stinks of irony, given that EON had to sue Sony to get the rights back to various Bond properties, only to have MGM bought over by them. Also, although companies are obviously keen to place their own products in their own movies, this is highly jarring and unrealistic. I mean what are the odds of everyone you meet owning a Sony mobile?
