movies follow what the video games show. they are being out flanked by video games.

It is very hard to hit a basketball sized target at 50 feet, much less a clean headshot in the middle of a firefight./

So I'm not sure what to think. Please analyze.


(And by the way, people shooting the enemy in the head from fifty feet away seems like amazingly good aim, even for pros. Wild how in recent years the amount of successful headshots has gone up dramatically.)

yeah i remember you(?) asking me(?) about doing that with a pistol. 50 feet = 15 meters. olympic distances are 10, 25 and 50 meters but t's all low caliber weapons with little recoil and nobody shooting back.

i haven't seen the movie so i don't know.

generally speaking, you gotta aim for center mass though. chest.

--Well, it boils down to this: if the filmmakers want someone to die, the shooter has amazing aim. If someone needs to live, not even a spray of machine gun fire will hit the target.

--So you're saying all the head shots are just chest shots that went off the mark?

no, i've no idea but generally people train for center mass because the head is too little and moves more and it's too easy to miss and hit something behind the target instead.

shots to the head are typically a very close range business murder thing

but in the movies, every hero is a fucking sharpshooter and every arab terrorist couldn't hit the ground pointing downwards.

By the way, this happens in "good" movies too. How on earth that dude makes that shot at the end of CHINATOWN really strains credulity.

But issue 2:

Was it better in the old days where the guy would grab his stomach (clean shirt, no blood stain or bullethole) and fall over? Or is it "better" to show violence in a more realistic manner?

i'd prefer more graphic sex, less violence of all kinds.

but that's just me. pleasure > rage.

watching the way people blow up in the last Rambo flick made me a pacifist. (by the way, when you type "rambo" and the spell check it, it capitalizes it!)

does the cost of electricity to engage an internet connection to piratebay and then convert the torrent file to an MP4 video count?

The last Rambo was awesome compared to rambo 3, 4, and 5, and 6, and 7

Remember in PART II when he blew up a guy with a bomb-tipped arrow? That shocked me then. Seems so gentle after the last movie when he fucking liquifies a guy with a machine gun.

PS- I watched it only for the politics.

Not sure about the rest but First Blood is an excellent movie by any standards and may as well be from another series altogether. I like the rest but more as guilty pleasures. The first one still really stands up, though.

The original Rocky is pretty great but the rest were all about squeezing a progressively drying and shriveling teat until it turned to dust. Did you see Rocky Balboa? Embarrassing!

Speaking of red blooded males, Stallone now has silicone lips like Joan Rivers.

Rocky Balboa was great! It made for a nice ending in the series that V wasn't going to give.

Drive. Ryan Gosling was exceptionally cool in the movie as "the driver". Clearly a remake of The Driver.

just released on disc. interviews with former directors of shin bet (israel's internal security agency) who speak about the history of their organization and the occupation/colonization of palestinian lands. really excellent stuff. it will blow your mind.

I thought the first two Rockys were great and even though the third one's not brilliant, I'll always watch it whenever it's on TV.

I watched the first Expendables film this morning. It's good for what it is although more because of Jason Statham than for Stallone. In terms of action heroes, Statham's the man right now.

The last Rambo was excellent primal action.

The expendables 2 is real lame.
