    For me I am so tired of seeing all of these expert fighters! Just once I would like to see someone who is not that skillful at fighting but is just a straight up brawler! Kind of guy who kicks you in the nuts and smashes a beer bottle over your head! LOL
    You'd love the fist fight from They Live, Roddy Piper and Keith David. One of my favorite fight scenes ever.

    Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves gets a lot of flack, but one of the things I unabashedly love about it is that for the final battle between Robin and the Sheriff, they absolutely have no clue how to use their swords. The entire thing is choreographed as just two dudes who are incredibly pissed at each other and just swinging steal around with blind hope of cutting the other guy's head off. It's glorious and goofy and brilliant.

    Also gotta love it when someone slides something with relative ease to block a door. Sometimes it's giant pieces, ok that's fair enough. But I've seen people slide like, night-stand sized furniture or the like in front of a door with one hand. And somehow that stops someone from pushing it aside with the door? I'll just go out on a limb and say yeahhhh-no. Seen plenty of scenes with things propped against a door that realistically would never stop someone from busting it open.

    Why is everybody in the movies or TV show an excellent typist? They move their fingers at an epic pace and NEVER look at the keyboard?

    And on that, almost always seem to have excellent WiFi service anywhere they have their laptop. Same with cell phones, which all miraculously only have no service in the lead-up to something bad happening.

    First, the obvious answer--they aren't really typing, they're acting like they're typing. Second, once you learn how to type properly you don't need to look at the the keyboard because you know where the keys are. You only have to press the right keys in the proper sequence, so at most you only need to look at what you're typing to make sure you haven't made any mistakes.

    Yeah, if you actually know how to type (not just hunt and peck) it really looks fake when they just pretend to type. It's like being a musician and watching someone pretend to play the guitar or the piano.

    I agree with that... But watching their fingers move in the same sequence over and over always strikes me as funny. I may have mentioned it before... I hit backspace more often than any other key!

    Please no more fight scenes in kitchens - especially when someone grabs a knife which is, like, 95% of the time.

    Would be cool if someone grabbed a blender or mixer, took the time to plug it in and then... well.. wait for the magic

    Shooting 9,000 rounds from a gun that has a total of 10-15 rounds in a magazine without having to reload.

    Phone rings...

    Hero, who is with a friend, answers the phone says hello and responds to caller with "... uh huh... Right... OK... I understand... Thank you so much... OK bye"

    Hero's face is filled with emotional distraught and anxiety. In some cases, our hero begins to cry.

    Friend asks who was on the phone and the hero responds with "... oh it was nothing..."

    Yup, that gets me too. As someone who uses a desktop for work purposes, all day AND being an occasional tv and movie extra whenever I’ve been plonked in front of a computer on set I’ve tried to make my computer tapping look realistic, by including The space bar, tab, numbers and the mouse in my ‘perfirmance’.
