The rest from Gunsmoke to CHiPs, Burke's Law, McMIllan and wife, CSI and NCIS all are as close to make believe and the James Bond series. Even the un-reality shows on now such as Survivor are nothing but make believe having about the same reality basis as Road Runner and Popeye. Sit back, relax, enjoy the escape from reality and quit worrying about it when it is on the big or little screen. As for the politicians people need to understand that very few if any have and idea of what is going on, they are just after the 5 second sound bite that will get them elected so they can do what they actually want to do. Tom and Jerry are closer to reality than campaign promises hut some people want them banned because Tom keeps getting hit with a frying pan.
    I made this thread not because of how mad I get at the tv...more of an on going laughable thread people can read and *facepalm* at the stupidity of mankind. Even though many of us on this forum are smarter than the medias primary audience, it's main audience is being spoon fed all this crap and they love it.

    I made this thread as an ongoing laugh fest...more so than actual intellect going into it. I wanted specific events or scenes...multiple scenes...that I can read through and laugh at. Like double barrels being racked and having the sound of metal casings hit the ground...LOL

    As much as I like Freddiew on youtube for how awesome he makes action scenes...his last Cereal Killer has him shooting a revolver with casings hitting the ground. He is still the best short action film producer EVER.

    In the end of "The Bourne Ultimatum" (where Bourne confronts the doctor that supervised the program that turned him into Jason Bourne) Bourne's pistol switches from a Glock to a Sig about two or three times.

    In "The Bourne Supremacy" the bad guy (Karl Urban) shot Bourne from what looked to be 50+ yards with a pistol (one-handed no less). I have my doubts.

    "Rambo" (The last one where he goes in after the missionaries) has a .50 caliber blowing people in half with one round. The .50 is an awesome round but I think that is a bit extreme.

    I also laugh at how every Hollywood good guy carries FMJ ammo.

    I like the old western movies where a guy has two-six shooters and fires 25 rounds without a reload.

    John Wayne, Robert Mitchum, Kevin Costner and many other western stars routinely displayed dangerous gun handling skills in their movies.

    I always like how someone will say "cover me" and run into the line of fire, and not one of the twenty bullets gets any closer than exactly twelve inches from their back foot. Because 1. Only good guys know how to shoot, and 2. Any time you say "cover me" it's like the film's insurance policy.

    Forget what tv or movie it was but cop had thumb sticking up behind slide, bet that would hurt.

  9. As you know, I am a former LEO, and I have been noticing that more and more, actors on TV and in the movies are showing improved gun handling habits. I even saw the bad guy in a movie the other night who was holding a pistol with his trigger finger along the slide, and his buddy had his trigger finger hooked on the front of the trigger guard. If you really want a laugh, see how the detective in 'Plan 9 From Outer Space' handles his .38 revolver. One of the other 'cops' should have disarmed him and and slapped the dog soup out of him. I mean, who scratches his head with the muzzle of a revolver while his finger is on the trigger?

    My WTH are you doing comments usually come after this overused scene in just about every movie where there is a bad guy and gun play, good guy hits him with a 2x4 or something like that, bad guy drops the gun, good guy clocks him good then leaves with out retrieving the gun. Bad guy wakes up, shakes it off, picks up his gun and is again in pursuit of the good guy.

    If the GG removed the gun or they made sure the Freddie Kruger was dead or tied up before walking away there would be no next scene. This is why I have pretty much given up on watching movies. The problem is not in the movies themselves but the dumb arse people that think they actually mimic real life. It's MAKE BELIEVE people!!!!
