    Perhaps I mentioned this before, but my deep research into the old Kung-Fu Theater flicks reveal that: regardless of how many times you are stabbed, speared, punched, kicked, thrown out the window/off the roof, you are never dead until the blood trickles out of your mouth.

    I've got to give a pass on sounds in space. Imagine watching a sci-fi movie with a space battle and no sound. It just wouldn't work. So I forgive and accept that one.

    I'd be holding my 9mm.

It's unrealistic enough even when it's a jacked-up muscle man doing it, but even more so when a woman with the body of a runway model does. I suppose you have to appease the PC culture by letting them take refuge in fiction with stuff that would never happen in real life.
    Yeah, it's kinda nice watching a hot chick kick ***. I find it even sexy, but that novelty wore off for me years ago, and it's just getting more ridiculous in the movies. I've studied martial arts most of my life. I've met women who are excellent in their abilities in the their art(s). They are still no match for a man who has any kind of size to him (average) and/or motivation. I've trained women in self-defense. I don't tell them they can eventually be like Scarlett Johansson in The Avengers because I would be lying. I tell them to carry weapons and show them how to use them, I show them defensive and offensive moves that can hurt and stun a man, and then I tell them to run like hell. That's reality.

    Give me the biggest and most skilled man, put him against three or four abled bodied men coming at him at once and he's toast. Period. I laugh when I see the hero or heroin surrounded by 6 or 8 guys and they only go after the hero one at a time. That's the one that always gets me.

    Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.

    Their seatbelts are always immediately straight, not twisted.

    The guy who is going to retire, get married, any meaningful positive life transition is the next or last one killed.

    A lone drunk staggering down a deserted alleyway singing to himself in the early hours of the morning is either going to get killed or stumble upon a dead body.
    '...a violator of his word, a libertine over head and ears in debt and disgrace, a despiser of domestic ties, the companion of gamblers and demireps, a man who has just closed half a century without a single claim on the gratitude of his country or the respect of posterity...' - Leigh Hunt on the Prince Regent (later George IV).

    In the movies, surgeon's masks often lay flat across their chests. Masks are never tied on flat.
