    Default Your most undesirable WAR movie faults

    Ok Otis and I were taking about this a little while ago but I forgot about it till now.
    The dealio is what War based movies really get your knickers in a twist because of their blatant disrespect for your intelligence?

    I'll start with a one that I have already mentioned but this sticks out because the movie is epic as far as I'm concerned.

    Black Hawk Down - when the two gunners are left by themselves defending the corner.
    They show a close up of one of the weapons (SAW if I remember correctly) and it shows blank link ammunition. I understand they must use blanks so that less people really die while making the movie but FFS, at least have the real deal on the weapon for the close ups.
    For those of you that donít know the difference. A blank round is crimped on the end and has no projectile or bullet therefore making it safe to fire at actors. We (the ARMY) use it for training when we need real people at the other ends of our barrels but don't want them to be shot.


    I look forward to seeing everyone elses posts and adding heaps more of my own

    and stieny.... I'm sure you'll love this thread

    I'm a bit lost for anything at the moment so I'll say something that could make a movie that little bit better for me. This applies to actions more than war movies.

    -Guns that fire twice or triple the capacity of the magazine. I know about retakes and all but this could add that little bit of extra faithful representation and helps the suspension of disbelief.

    I have one!

    How about in every movie when the good guy picks up a pump action shotgun, he pumps it once. Regardless if it hasnt been used.

    If theres already a shell in the chamber, wouldnt it force it out? lol That one shot coulda came in handy.

    Yeah like in phone booth when the bad guy explains why the sniper always reloads right before shooting.... because itís scary apparently... no thatís just retarded. A sniper rifle is lucky to take 5 -10 rounds and youíve been sitting there with your weapon unloaded.... thatís not scary its f**king stupid. If and when you decide to shoot me mr sniper. I hope you forget to even put a clip on you f**king muppet.

    I despise how in most WWII movies, all the Germans are portrayed as the stereotypical nazi monsters dreamed up by the Allied propaganda machines.

    I also hate how in alot of movies that are set in more modern times portray all Russians as the dispicable, evil bastards that feed the lunatics in the world with their weapons of destruction while showing the Americans as godlike saviours of the planet.

    I guess this is the price we pay for watching American movies lol.

    The end of the third Pirates of the Carribean really annoys me, when the pissy little ships of the protagonists completely obliterate the massive British ship of the line before it even fires a shot, then the entire Royal Navy fleet turns and runs from 2 shitty little pirate ships. WTF IS UP WITH THAT!!!!????

    Davey Jones wasnt an inaccuracy, that was a scifi fantasy creature.

    Perhaps the biggest inaccuracy of that seen is the fact that the British ship went out by itself to face them. They were called "ships of the line" for a reason

    The British ship.

    I was watching Con Air last week and they had a grenade launcher on the JailBird. Does this appear odd to anyone else?

    Why do special forces wear yellow tinted eye protection and sometimes use torches with a red glow?

    Is it the same reason rally drivers do?

    The torches with a red filter are accurate. Not sure about the eyewear.
