When a protagonist is still discharging their Desert Eagle after 8 or 9 rounds, it bothers me.

I've never been shot, but I sliced my thigh open pretty badly by breaking a pane of glass with my knee. I didn't feel a thing, except a wet feeling from the blood running down my leg. Maybe it's the same thing? Which brings me bttt - this experience tells me that if I ever crashed through a plate glass window like movie characters always do - headfirst - then I would be fucking decapitated. But apparently that's just me...jack Bauer can do it 20 times in a 24 hour period with nary a cut pinkie

I got my first ATM card at the First American Bank in Alexandria, Virginia in August, 1980.

The Gods are also southern plantation owners, South Carolina circa 1750.

I love Master and Commander and props to Crowe for what looks like an attempt to learn how to play violin, but this clip always gets me:

I've posted here before, but it must be a nightmare watching a movie with some of you people here.

BUT one thing that gets me is where all that music in films come from? Do the people on the screen actually hear it? Does the bad guy around the corner sense the danger as much as I do? So many questions!

This is why I cant stand most martial arts stuff. This choreographed fighting nonsense. Might as well just break into song and dance. I also find it amusing whensomeone gets major head trauma or passes out only to suddenly revive and are 110%- not even a hint of wooziness or disorientation as they fight off multiple attackers. Just once I'd like to see a spy movie where the person hacking into the computer system as the critical seconds tick away-gets killed because of a series of pop up ads or automatic update windows thwarted the job.

That is the wonder that is Sean Connery.

Apparently all that is necessary to survive -150 degree temperatures is a good supply of books for burning.

McGruber!


My favorite dumb error in a movie is the opening scene of "The Arrival" (with Charlie Sheen!). News flashes around the world that a meadow has been found within 1/2 a mile of the North Pole. The announcements all focus on the sudden and mysterious climate change; I was more blown away by the presence of land in the middle of the Arctic Ocean!

" When Dorothy and the others enter the Haunted forest, the sign reads "Witches Castle One Mile." "Witches" is plural. To be grammatically correct, it should have said "Witch's Castle," making it possessive."
