007 is soooo '07.

A rare PLAY post for once after watching the new Bond movie, inspired not by the qualities of the movie (which there are surprisingly quite a few) but by the context in which it is taking place and the fact that by the time the movie hit the screens, it is already outdated.  Consider the following references: expensive oil; green energy; a bribe executed in Euros, because "the dollar is not what it used to be."  Clearly, the screenplay was conceived in 2007 and early 2008; by now it feels strangely nostalgic that 6 months ago, those were our concerns.
