Because tires are a more difficult target? And presumably safety glass is cheaper and safer than having tires blow out? And because shooting out the windshield you're more likely to hit the person or at least make the person flinch?

When the trailer for the movie has scenes that do not appear in the final presentation.
Tarzan's Greatest Adventure (1959) is a fine example. In one scene from the coming
attraction, Tarzan and the girl have a love scene in the bushes with kissing and jungle sex.
This intriguing interlude was cut from the film and can only be seen in the trailer.

When someone gets injured or murdered we are made to believe it's not obvious. Like when someone gets stabbed, shot, or hit in the head, the victim stands still motionless for seconds with no sign of injury, then the blood slowly drips from their chest or head.

Oh yes, the slow fall, very effective...& then there's the dying speech, they always have enough strength to deliver it, & without crying out in any sort of pain. I like the Hollywood fatal illness, the women never look rough or ill, or have to keep running to the loo, they just look a bit wan & fade away...& usually looking still quite shaggable!

Sorry if some of this has been mentioned before, but there's a lot of pages to go through now!

You've seen this one no doubt....(most recently seen on THE 4400)

A kidnapper puts the victim on the phone to tell his parents "i am alright, Ma".
Or, he sends a tape recording.

So, some sound wizard puts the recording thru a filter and isolates some sounds
e.g. a train whistle or a fog horn.
From that, the cops are able to determine the exact location of the kidnapper.


gimme a break!!!!

I agree

this was done ONE TIME where it worked:
ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST

Cheyenne... the finale
'nuff said!

A couple of years ago, when I was hooked on "The Young And The Restless," it used to really annoy me when Victor Newman, this big business billionaire, would pull out his cell phone and punch in 7 or 10 numbers to call his personal lawyer, who SHOULD have been on speed dial. Don't billionaires have their lawyers on speed dial?

And I hate it when a character gives a phone number and there's the usual fake 555 -- often they could have pulled away so we can't hear the number being given. For me, it throws a wrench into the old suspension of disbelief!

Yeah I hate that. Giving the 555 number is like the actor showing their script on camera. They need a work around for that nowadays.

In the movie Sneakers, there's a scene at the end where River Phoenix asks a cute federal agent for her number, and she gives a real number that was purchased by director Phil Alden Robinson which played a recorded message aimed at "all you Sneakers fans". Also, in the NES game Who Framed Roger Rabbit, there's a real phone number that used to connect to a video game tip line, but now connects to...a phone sex company. eek
