** A media mogul wants to start WorldWarIII in the South China Sea? Did we just describe Elliot Carver or [[https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/feb/02/steve-bannon-donald-trump-war-south-china-sea-no-doubt?CMP=Share_AndroidApp_Copy_to_clipboard Steve Bannon]]?



** When it was first released, Carver was compared mostly with businessman Rupert Murdoch (WordOfGod said he was inspired by Robert Maxwell), but a passing mention that his company also sells software full of bugs (to force people to upgrade it for years) also got comparisons to Bill Gates. But now, judging from his rimless glasses and all-black outfits, he can be compared with Creator/SteveJobs, who'd returned to Apple the same year the film came out.

** Paris asks James if he "still sleeps with a gun under his pillow". Evidently he does, and this proves to be a serious mistake during the events of ''[[Film/DieAnotherDay]]'' five years later.

** Bond notes that Carver had already put the murder of the murdered sailors across the headlines before the British or Vietnamese authorities had even verified their deaths, which only serves to make Carver look even more suspicious after it was determined his satellite network had tapped into the GPS system.

** Vincent Schiavelli, who's Dr. Kaufmann immediately proved popular with viewers despite having only a single scene, in which he states he is a brilliant assassin who clearly takes great pleasure in his line of work.

* WhatAnIdiot: Even though he's a secret agent, Bond wastes no time questioning Carver on the nature of his network activities when trying to probe him for information upon their first meeting. As soon as the talk of ships comes up, Carver wastes no time in later having the crap beaten out of him for answers.

As soon as the talk of ships comes up, Carver wastes no time in later having the crap beaten out of him for answers. And on top of that, when two of Carver's henchmen ask Bond to come with them, Bond doesn't seem prepared in the least for the possibility that they ''might'' be taking him somewhere quiet to beat him up. He ''does'' proceed to mop the floor with them, but they still get the drop on him a little too easily.

* ValuesResonance: Despite the fact that this movie [[TechnologyMarchesOn doesn't mention the Internet at all]], this film paints a surprisingly accurate picture of mass media scaremongering tactics today. Elliot Carver's line "Words are the new weapons; satellites, the new artillery" seemed plain [[LargeHam hammy]] when first released, but the rise of 24-hour news networks like Creator/FoxNewsChannel, TV political pundits, increasingly polarized news judgments, and electronic warfare make it harder than ever. In addition to that, the major reason why the villain launches his whole scheme is because China refused to allow him access into their markets, similar to how [[ChinaTakesOverTheWorld many Western companies are either banned or must submit to heavy Chinese regulation]] to be able to operate within China today.
