An example of paradigm would be believing that James Bond should always be cast as a stereotypically "good looking, handsome" man with "model" type features. A "paradigm shift" occurs when that pattern of belief is broken which occurred when Daniel Craig was cast (remember the uproar and ridicule he endured). That is why I like Craig. He successfully created a "paradigm shift".

So Craig is a rather unattractive, beady eyed, middle aged loser whom chics find hideous. Us blokes like him because when he pulls a bird as Bond, we are given hope that maybe that could be us if we get a swish suit and a Walther PPK.

Got it.

I think the unlimited bank account and the 6 pack helps (and I don't mean 5 beers and a pizza 6 pack like I have).

Ya it's good, but I still liked Casino Royale better . I think CR had a little more action and a bit more intense. Besides Daniel Craig was younger then too!

I shed a tear for the DB5.

Don't worry, they used a stunt double for that one . The DBS from casino royale was the same.. Leftover half finished prototypes and mules...I think something like 9 to 12 of those (and a couple of scrappy old bmw 5 series) gave their lives for that tumbling scene.

A lot of it was done with a 3D printer.

Pretty cool stuff.

This is new to me but I really like this expression. Now I will have to try and use it in a sentence today.

I am assuming this is not the same as choking your chicken.

I really liked it and agree that Craig is probably my second favourite Bond after Connery.

The one thing that got me was the terrible terrible pervasion of product placement into the film.

'What was that'
'It was a Volkswagen Beetle I think'

zoom shot onto Danny boy's wrist with his beautiful Omega watch when operating the JCB on the back of the train

swigging from bottles of Heineken in Q's control room

Guess that is how these things get financed now days

It's about as polar opposite from choking your chicken as you can get!

Bond has always been about product placement. Even in the old films.

I don't even notice it now. If it wasn't for the adverts and complaints I couldn't even have told you what beer/watch/irrelevant car it was.
