Just saw this in HTTYD 3...

A tacked on happy ending after the bitter sweet ending. Because you know the world is nothing but colorful pony's and rainbows.

... when a good guy is wrongly accused, so he decides to escape police custody
while enroute to the station or prison. After overpowering the arresting officers,
the good guy races along the streets causing massive damage to other vehicles
and trucks. I've always wanted to know how many lives were ruined or destroyed
by this desperate hero who is later found innocent of the initial crime. How many
people were injured or died as a result of his maniacal escape.

Just saw this in Taken 3. Shame on you, Liam.


Just a terribly written movie all around. Pretty sure I mentioned this earlier, but this film also yanks out that rancid 'get my prints all over the murder weapon' trope. Luc Besson just stopped trying.

I dunno about you but...
When I come across a corpse I always bend over it and examine the gun or knife or whatever.

...a "hot" sex scene consists of one of the two lovers sweeping a desk or table clear of everything that's on it in a fit of passion before the coitus commences? Can't these people at least find a nice, soft sofa to boink on? All-time silliest example was in The Black Dahlia, where Josh Harnett sweeps an ENTIRE TURKEY DINNER off of the dining-room table so he and Scarlett Johansson can screw in a pile of stuffing and mashed potatoes and spilled gravy. Sexy...?

Sex scenes in American films are always cringe worthy. Their neither sexy or erotic.

Sounds like the best of both worlds. "Sexy" or eroticism is all in the mind. But there was a Seinfeld episode that combined food and sex, so I suppose that proves your point about the silliness. Plus it sounds like a parody of the Jack Nicholson scene in "The Postman always rings twice," which was already laughable. Or maybe it wasn't, reviewers seem to like it. Maybe the turkey scene needed more gravy.

Bottom of shoes and other footwear are off the shelf clean.

You can say that about everything - clothes, interiors, actor appearances.

...you see vintage movie posters hung on someone's wall, and they're always framed and in immaculate condition? Especially dubious when it's a movie with an 80s setting, and some kid's bedroom has a poster of, say, The Thing framed and perfectly hung on their wall in fresh-from-the-art-department condition. Any 80s kid with a few movie or celeb posters on their wall would have stuck them up with scotch tape or thumbtacks, and they'd be full of frayed edges and minor tears repaired by said tape. Stranger Things is a good example, and the recent Bumblebee had an '87-era teen boy with the aforementioned Thing poster, perfectly framed and hung.

True, but some stand out more than others. Look at Rey in the new Star Wars trailer. Shes in the middle of the desert yet her white outfit looks like it just came out of the wash, bleached and all. Compare that to the Jawa's or Tusken Raiders from the original trilogy.

@ Mr. Jack- So true about movie posters on the walls! We tacked or taped the hell out of them. And yes they were never in pristine condition.

Not sure if this is already mentioned in the thread, but in most films and tv shows featuring storms you see lightning and hear thunder simultaneously. That rarely happens in real life. Can’t say I “hate” it, though. Just an observation smile

I literally hate it when films never show scenes of people spending absolutely ages in the toilet, just sitting there for example. Well, yes, in some films people are seen on the toilet like in Jurassic Park, but it's usually done for so-called comic effect and rarely in the name of reality. Which is part of the strange dichotomy that is cinema. In striving for so-called realism, they leave out what makes us all real, namely going to the toilet. I'm literally disgusted by this new trait and have decided to never watch another so-called film.

There was an unpleasant outdoor toilet scene in Nocturnal Animals, the likes of which I don’t recall seeing hitherto. If you’re not going to see another film ever, that’s definitely one not to see.

Thanks TG. I'll doubly not watch that one.

I’ve tried to wipe it from my memory.

But I’m not trying to run a smear campaign.

I can pass on bathroom scenes thank you very much! Actually there was a very funny bathroom scene in Ron Moore's Battlestar Galactica.

Hey Graham, I think you mean "on the toilet." The only times I've seen someone in the toilet was a Tidy Bowl commercial (in the tank, not the bowl), Trainspotting, and Headhunters (2011). The last I recommend.
