Let's see....<br /> You have guns that hardly make a sound.<br /> You have actors who can run faster than an explosion.<br /> Must be more stuff.<br /> <br /> Wadda you got?

Actors and actresses who in real life look nothing like what they look like on the big screen...

Broke Down

Getting knocked out with a blow to the head, coming round and carrying on like nothing happened. Repeatedly, in some characters. David Vincent got hit in the head and/or knocked out in almost every episode of the Invaders, the guy would have been a mess. This from someone who occasionally works on people with just one head trauma incident, there's a long list of potential symptoms.

"Silencers that work with revolvers."<br /> <br /> Generic ones, yes, laughable.<br /> <br /> Specific revolvers, work just fine (and better than a semi) - stuff like the Nagant revolver gas seal at the forcing cone/cylinder.

"Silencers that work with revolvers."<br /> <br /> In my experience, a suppressor on a revolver is quieter than a suppressor on a semi-auto pistol. Single-shot and bolt-action rifles are the quietest with a suppressor.

There's a few hybrids out there was well - flip the gas regulator on a FNFAL to "Grenade" shuts off the port to the bolt, making it a straight pull bolt gun until switched back.<br /> <br /> It was nearly as quiet with my Gemtech HVT as the Rem 700 I tried it on.

Sci Fi:<br /> Breathable atmosphere on asteroids<br /> Space ships with "anti-gravity" switch<br /> <br /> Cop Movies:<br /> Cop guns down three robbery suspects and is back on the street before the smell of cordite dissipates.<br /> <br /> Anti-hero homicide detective who constantly violates policy and tells his supervisors to f**k off, yet somehow keeps his job.<br /> <br /> Same detective uses his personal super charged vehicle on duty, routinely drives 90 mph on city streets, never stops for a red light, yet never gets pulled over.<br /> <br /> Westerns:<br /> <br /> The hero fans his six shooter and delivers perfect bulls eye hits on the several bad guys confronting him simultaneously. Their shots always miss.<br /> <br /> Horror:<br /> <br /> Female victim is always equipped with a flashlight that must be continually slapped in order to function. Until it quits.<br /> <br /> Female victim flees monster/slasher on foot, and inevitably falls down.<br /> <br /> Is there any dark, foreboding basement they won't go into for no reason at all?<br /> <br /> Why does that vehicle with 6 randy college students always break down within a hundred yards of the house of horrors?<br /> <br /> Why is there always at least one idiot in the college group who insists on pissing off the gap toothed cannibal running the Last Chance gas station?<br /> <br /> <br /> <br />

I was flipping through the channels the other day and a rerun of Blue Bloods was on. Danny was listening to a 911 call and was trying to discern some background chatter. "Wait! Isolate that!". A quick playback and clear as day an MTA announcement for a departing training, no other trace of the caller's voice. <br /> <br /> I snorked.

To add to Gato's horror film list:<br /> <br /> 1. If there's ever a homicidal lunatic terrorizing your lakeside campground, do NOT take a shower.<br /> <br /> 2. Properly maintain your vehicle. You need it to start right up when that homicidal lunatic is standing on your hood with an axe in his grubby fists.

People hanging the phone up without saying goodbye. <br /> <br /> The roll off and business as usual 1 second after sex.<br /> <br /> Mandatory feedback stepping up to the podium.<br /> <br /> Smart kids.<br /> <br />

"Why does that vehicle with 6 randy college students always break down within a hundred yards of the house of horrors?<br /> <br /> Why is there always at least one idiot in the college group who insists on pissing off the gap toothed cannibal running the Last Chance gas station?"<br /> <br /> I highly recommend "Cabin in the Woods" to see ALL the horror movie tropes shown, and then flipped on their head!

"Cop Movies:<br /> Cop guns down three robbery suspects and is back on the street before the smell of cordite dissipates."<br /> <br /> How about the battles with like 300 shots fired, and not a single person gets hit?<br /> <br /> Also, almost every actress's boobs. <br /> <br /> "Getting knocked out with a blow to the head, coming round and carrying on like nothing happened."<br /> <br /> Also, how easy it is to knock someone out with a blow to the head. Sometimes you don't even need a weapon and you can just do it with a fist! The guy will do it and not even be ready for a fight, because he is 100% confident he just landed a knockout blow. <br /> <br /> I'll also throw in there, how easy it is to kill a guy by snapping his neck. I have never tried it, but I suspect its not as easily done as in the movies, where you barely even have to touch the guy. <br /> <br /> Also, girls getting horny for the pizza guy, though admittedly those are a different type of movie.

the one I hate the most..<br /> <br /> Bad guys with Uzi's spray the room with 600 bullets but can't hit the good guy with a pistol...and of course the good guy always finds a way to win.<br /> <br /> <br />
