I see it happen surprisingly often, Thor. Maybe not in the works of Scorsese or others where everybody speaks at the same time, but I thought we should have seen an end to it after the "overlapping dialogue" of THE THING, sixty-one years ago.

I'm also starting to hate when people call each other by their names often in films especial when talk to each other.

When used in anger or in serious moments I don't mind it as much because that usually does add weight to what you are saying to someone but I cannot stand when done often as it feels like two politicians are speaking to one another.

In recent history they been over doing those quick surprise endings when the villian seems dead and bingo in the last 5 or 10 second it comes back, enough already. the formula has more cobwebs on it [been doing it since the 70's] then a set of a Edgar Allan poe movie.

After a driver of a car is shot and killed, the car accelerates out of control.

a) The run-away limo in True Lies

b) General McCallister's car in Lethal Weapon

c) I'm sure there are other examples......


.....LIVE AND LET DIE

right. you have to PRESS DOWN on the accelerator to make it go fast
idiotic!

Whenever someone gets shot while wearing a bullet proof vest, they always have to rip open there shirt as if to say "See! I'm wearing a bullet proof vest!" even when we (sometimes) already knew they were.

I saw this while watching Point Break again a few days ago. We even clearly see Keanu Reeves putting one on barely a few minutes before he takes a few in the chest.

maybe that's because gunmen are fans of FISTFUL OF DOLLARS?

Man with NO Name: "Aim for the heart Rojo" If you want to kill me you have to aim for the heart "

1) Guy 1 (most times black) shot (usually in the leg or around the shoulder area) to guy 2: "I'm alright. You go get him".

2) Guy 1 (usually white) usually jokingly to guy 2, who's shot up: "Are you alright?

This macho boontash has to go.

3 - Getting hurt ONLY when it matters as seen in MISSION IMPOSSIBLE - GHOST PROTOCOL. Tom Cruise takes some SERIOUS falls, tumbles, hits, and punishment in this film all with little to no effect but it isn't til the finale when he fits the villain that a simple kick to his knee hobbles him and of course, this is the one time when he needs to faster then the bad guy.


Getting punched on the nose and nothing happens, as in nearly every John Wayne western; one of the many reasons I don't like John Wayne films (besides John Wayne himself).
Getting an uppercut and not even a chipped tooth. Worst offender: Steven Segal in "Exit wounds"; he gets knocked straight up from under on his jaw by his opponent head and...... NOTHING. Now his toothpaste I want to have!

That happens alot in porn. When performers want to show they can also "act" they say "fuck " constantly
lol!


Then again they say "Oh my gosh" if they mean "Oh my god". After all we don't want to offend anyone.
By the way "Oh my gosh" HAS TO GO or it has to be made punishable by severy slapping on the lips that spew out that abomination. But that's for another thread.

3 ways to die in the movies by gunfire
------------------------------------------------
1) instant death : someone shot in torso (not heart) drops and is gone. Generally no blood.

2) last farewell : someone shot in torso (not heart) drops and has just enough time to deliver their last farewell... "Tell Susan I love her!"... amidst grimaces but not agonizing pain. Followed by the obligatory cough, stare into space, then 'outta here'.

3) screaming death throws : someone shot in torso (not heart) drops and spends 10 mins in agony until military comrades decide to "Give him the morphine!"... which means a lethal dose. Unlike #1 above, these are usually physiological exhibitions of human anatomy and quite red.

3 ways not to die in the movies by gunfire
------------------------------------------------------
1) Good guy shot multiple times (enough to take out 5 bad guys), stumbles around, liquidates all remaining bad guys, removes bullets with a pen knife (helped by girl friend), and resumes party mode the next day.

2) Run behind bannisters on a staircase; especially good for machine gun fire. Any plywood furniture will do.

3) Get shot in the sherrif's badge, cigarrete lighter, silver dollar, belt buckle, bozo button, etc.

Anyone shot with a silenced gun in a movie will always obligingly die without making a sound.

The stars who perform in films have to give their dubious viewpoints on political issues. like they know more about such things then the common man or woman?

Yeah....I generally hate "Are you alright?", no matter which context.

Yeah, and silencers (suppressors) don't work on revolvers either. There would still be a blast from the cartridge chamber even if the muzzle is silenced.

The corollary to that:
No matter how hurt the person is they ALWAYS say "i'm ok"
