chris kilby -> Favourite SNAFUS! (20/8/2012 8:12:53 PM)

This is the thread for all your favourite continuity errors, scientific blunders, historical inaccuracies and other gaffes in the movies. Just a bit of harmless fun, mind. So... nitpick away!

ONE MILLION YEARS BC
Dinosaurs and humans...?

JURASSIC PARK
Velociraptors had feathers.

GLADIATOR
How are the gladiators able to communicate with each other? After the Third Servile War (aka: Spartacus!) The Romans did indeed keep slaves of different nationalities penned up together precisely because they couldn't talk to each other and thus plot another uprising. Wonderful race, the Romans. Terrific.

ZULU
I love Zulu, me. It's one of me favourites, one of The Greatest British Movies Ever Made! and long overdue a revisionist re-make, if you ask me. But it does rather omit one crucial historical detail which maybe makes "Our Boyos" look just the teensiest bit less heroic fighting against men with spears - they used machine guns!

STAR WARS
Sound and aerodynamics in the vacuum of space. Although, to be fair, Lucas has always known this and Star Wars is very deliberately a fantasy, a fairytale. But still...

CAPTAIN AMERICA
Oh, I know. It's super-hero movie, but bear with me. A female British major? Giving orders to Americans? During WWII? OK. Um... a multi-national, multi-ethnic American unit? During WWII? And wouldn't that Japanese-American guy've been in an internment camp back in the US or something at the time...?

ARMAGEDDON
Christ! Where do you start...?

Well pardon me all over the place.

Um... I think you just might be missing the point somewhat. Do the words "just a harmless bit of fun" ring any bells? No? Are you alright? I dunno, you seem a bit... on edge this evening. Maybe you need a wee lie down or something. Or are you always this angry? I thought mods were supposed to be more even-tempered. And, you know, even-handed. Cos you do strike me as quite an aggressive and confrontational sort of a chap. "Humour Pending"? You can say that again.

(I LOVE films, BTW. If you actually bothered to read my reviews you would know that. I kinda assumed being a dedicated film website that everyone would feel the same way. Ho-hum...)

You remember that bit where I said you lack self-awareness? I'm not finding anything to show I'm wrong there, yet.

You accuse me of being quite "an aggressive and confrontational chap" (loving the condescension, good work) while also being just that in almost everything you write. People aren't allowed to disagree with you because, hey, it's just a bit of fun, right? No harm no foul. GEEZ MAN TAKE A JOKE, etc. GOD STOP TAKING EVERYTHING SO SERIOUSLY IT'S JUST AN INTERNET FORUM, GODUH. And so forth. You use it as an instant rebuttal to EVERYTHING people say against you. And, to be honest, it's tiresome.

The irony in being negative about a thread which is being negative about something else is always highly amusing.




Biggus -> RE: Favourite SNAFUS! (21/8/2012 7:00:15 AM)

I think U571 is one of the most famous/infamous as it was the British and not the Americans who recovered the Enigma machine.

To be fair, YOU'RE tiresome. It had grounds to be an interesting thread, until you came in on the second post to basically just spam away.
If you don't like the thread, fuck off out of it. They dont have to all meet your approval you know.

Does that go for your own posts? Because you said this to a poster in another thread a few days ago.

quote:

Oh lord, you've now infested another review thread quoting posts from about a year ago, are you for real?


Or is that Homer's not allowed to show frustration with a thread but you are?




tommyjarvis -> RE: Favourite SNAFUS! (21/8/2012 8:19:26 AM)

I think the fact that every time there's a thread that's negative about films, the same people come in and complain about it is what's annoying jonson. If people don't like those sorts of threads then don't clog them up with complaining and don't spoil them for those who do enjoy them.




rawlinson -> RE: Favourite SNAFUS! (21/8/2012 8:25:42 AM)

It doesn't make this comment

any less hypocritical when three days ago he was complaining about the direction of another thread.




st3veebee -> RE: Favourite SNAFUS! (21/8/2012 11:03:18 AM)

Lets all just calm down a minute.

Somebody please think of the children.




Rgirvan44 -> RE: Favourite SNAFUS! (21/8/2012 11:04:03 AM)

This thread is my favourite SNAFU

Also, a thread for this already exists- click




Rgirvan44 -> RE: Favourite SNAFUS! (21/8/2012 11:16:00 AM)

Elab is going to be so mad that you found it first.




Shifty Bench -> RE: Favourite SNAFUS! (21/8/2012 11:21:41 AM)

Does Elab like to post that? I didn't know, but I thought I'd seen it before.

I was going to post Helen Lovejoy from the Simpsons but I thought that would be too obvious [:-]

Amusing, yes. In a grim, gazing-into-the-abyss, sort of way. But it does rather run the risk of creating a total reality inversion...

Yup, that's a good one. Doesn't U571 hold the record for the most egregious historical howlers in the one movie or something...?

But then again I suppose it can be a bit tiresome when all you're getting these days are negative threads.

Especially when you're required to pretty much read almost every post and thread.

Blimey! You can practically smell the testosterone. And I thought I was pushing my luck. Uh, guys. Is it always like this round 'ere? Cos I kinda feel like Clarence Boedicker at the moment - "Ooh, guns, guns, guns...!"




MonsterCat -> RE: Favourite SNAFUS! (21/8/2012 11:40:39 AM)

Shit usually doesn't get real until Thursday, sir.

Actually, apart from these clearly light-hearted threads, my stuff tends to be overwhelmingly positive. But then I get shouted down for that too. You just can't win. IT'S A MADHOUSE! A MADHOUSE!!!

(Planet of the Apes, BTW. I get moaned at when I casually chuck random film quotes into conversations as well - it was Trainspotting yesterday, ironically enough. On a dedicated film website. Presumably full of film geeks like myself. Go figure...)




st3veebee -> RE: Favourite SNAFUS! (21/8/2012 11:47:56 AM)

Night at the Museum is almost certainly factually incorrect. I went to that Museum in New York and not once did the T Rex move. Not once.




Rgirvan44 -> RE: Favourite SNAFUS! (21/8/2012 11:47:58 AM)

We just aren't as smart as you Chris.

Sorry.
