Bullets hardly ever ricochet in movies. People walk right up to doors/padlocks and shoot them open. Please don't try this at home.

reminds me of this guy who thought he could shoot a hole into his pan. Sadly he was holding the pan in the other hand facing his head ..

I honestly don't mind stuff that doesn't make sense because afterall, we are watching a movie for entertainment.

What does get me is the inconsistency in the stuff that doesn't make sense.

For example, heros and villians with guns are typically better than Olympic champions capable of shooting firearms off people's hands. That's fine but what gets me is that once they face each other, they can't hit diddly squat.

Yawn....How original of you. Why are you assuming that I just watched this movie recently? And why are you calling me six?

As a guitar player, it bothered me that they made such a big deal that it was 1955 in Back To The Future, but the guitar being played, a Gibson ES-355, wasn't introduced until 1958.

Yeah you did, you watched it recently, probably watching it right now. Sorry about the six thing. Seven?

Even better, a dude is shooting off a Micro Uzi or Mac11, fully auto, for 30 seconds straight.

Aah- nothing like the "hollywood" clip.

Holy shit, I never realized that.
Still, the Chuck Berry reference wouldn't have been as good without it.

Whenever a gun gets pulled out and a cocking noise gets played. No, pulling a pistol out of its holster or bringing a rifle to bear does not automatically cock the weapon. Racking the slide/bolt cocks the weapon. Also, a "clip" is not a "magazine," the two are not interchangeable nor are magazines of infinite capacity.

Movies like Blood Diamond which feature things like press checks and aimed semi-auto fire instead of "CHK-CHK: budda budda budda" AK fire from the hip icing countless dudes do a lot to add to the feel of the movie. If its something like the Matrix, I don't care much, but movies set in the real world would do quite well to pay a firearms enthusiast to ensure realism. Another good example is Heat - the weapons were very well done and were showcased in an excellent fashion. Tons of FN FAL and FNC porn, too.
