I don't do 'plug threads' but this time I'm willing to make an exception. 

The Bond On Film series currently being written on The Register is one of the best things I have read this

Ever wondered what the closest thing to a 00 section the real world has? 
Want to know the physics behind a martini? 
Curious about how they actually do the stunts? 
Why an Aston Martin? 

It's all there and more.

This is the first one.
