The Terminator is on the box right now, & they come back in time from the future naked, they obviously can't bring anything non-organic back with them...but the terminator (Schwarzenegger) has a metal body under that fake skin, so they obviously can. But then I'm sure you make a long list of logical errors in that film...I don't think it's aged that well, but at least it doesn't have that very annoying kid in it that was in Terminator 2.

when the assassin goes rogue and starts killing off the criminals that the police have been desperate to convict of terrible crimes for years, the cops try to stop him. Why?

Be nice to see more movies where the cops deliberately didnt try too hard to catch the vigilante and admitted they werent.
Although often you would get a clever cop who catches them but lets them go. Death Wish was 1 of the first i saw like this but im sure there mustve been others.

I agree. I remember everyone in the theater getting a chuckle at Detective Ochoa's line: "Mr. Kirsey, we want you to leave New Yoak. Poimanently!"

Another one - the use of the same sound effects for howling wind, howling wolves, thunder, etc. in different films. There is one wind effect that has been used numerous times. The same with one particular thunder sound. And, it doesn't really sound that much like real thunder - more like a sheet of steel or aluninum being struck.

The Wilhelm Scream- I thought it was really funny and amusing at first, but now that I know the scream it sticks out like a sore thumb in practically every film I watch. And Ive heard it used when the mood was supposed to be very serious.

Hurricanes suddenly appear then disappear- Karate Kid pt2, The Little Mermaid, Jurassic Park.

Why in so many films do gangsters (often eastern european ones) decide to rape or murder the mate/work colleague/stepdaughter/dog of a special forces assassin who is dormant and working as an average Joe nobody?

Saw this in Nobody, Clean, Equaliser, John Wick, etc etc and dozens more.

I’m gonna stick up for Nobody here....

I haven’t seen it for a while but I think no family member, close associate (or pet) of Mr Nobody was murdered or raped.

I think he had a price on his head because he beat the f**k out of a Russian crime lord’s son/nephew/cousin who was being particularly anti-social on public transport.

Dont get me wrong, nobody was great.
The point im making is sleeper assassin getting activated is a common trait. And i was also being slightly tongue in cheek.

But dont they get burgled to start off with by house breakers?

Jeez, Bill

Don’t you understand that movie makers are just showing you "normal citizens" how easy it is to activate us.....errrr...sleeper assassins...

By the way Bill, I have a particular set of skills....

...a group of people is running from a disaster or monster, and there's that one dumb-shit little kid just standing there, stock-still, for no other reason than to goad one of the protagonists to put themselves in harm's way to save them?





Have you ever seen a five or six-year-old who isn't running around like a maniac even at the best of times? And yet when their lives are on the line, their survival instinct immediately shuts off. It always smacks of the director telling them to stand COMPLETELY STILL, or else they'll ruin the shot.
