    Depends on the budget, big budget movies might use Technicolor blood, which does mimic real blood.

    Movies produced on lesser budgets have been known to use Karo Light Corn Syrup and red food coloring.

    Also when people are propelled off their feet through the air by a bullet.

    Also when bullet hits produce instantaneous spouts of blood in the opposite direction.

    Chris DeVoe Should really take better care of himself

    Not in any Western animation, but it's the standard procedure in anime - which is one of the things I hate so much about anime. Even Miyazaki animated first and then recorded the voices, as can be seen in the behind the scenes documentary for Spirited Away.

    My guess is he wanted to pre-direct their voice delivery.

    Remove the DRM from movie downloads so that people are not tied into a particular device or ecosystem to watch their content. Music already did this and it benefited everyone. Continue to sue the people who put it up on pirate sites.

    Chris DeVoe Should really take better care of himself

    I don't know if I made myself clear. Miyazaki and all of the anime directors, with the possible exception of the film Akira, just animate flapping lips. Every Western animation director, going back to Disney's Steamboat Willie, use a thing called a "dope sheet" where they plan out the lip positions to a pre-existing recording. All the directing is done of the voice talent in a recording studio early in the process - after the storyboards, but long before final animation.
     
  9. Or when people immediately die after getting stabbed once in the upper back, with the knife stuck in and a good portion of blade protruding. IRL, the worst the victim is likely to suffer is a punctured lung, which is nasty but not immediately life-threatening.

    When a person dies while driving, their head will hit the horn which will sound continuously.

    No way could my head touch the horn if I tried.

    And creeping up behind someone and grabbing and twisting their head to break their neck.

    My bugbear is computers that make that high-pitched "beepity beep" noise whenever someone does anything, usually accompanied by pointlessly elaborate screen animation. Hollywood is bad enough at this, but the absolute worst are those CSI/NCIS type TV shows.

    LOL! Probably true. I have a bad habit of pointing out factual errors and fabrications in historical dramas and the like. One work colleague is always astonished and asks why they do that. My reply is that if they did not, you would simply rely on a documentary or <gasp!> reading about it rather than eagerly seeing the movie.

    In Florida, where you have individual cumulus rain clouds, it can be raining on one side of a divided highway and not on the other side.

    The rain comes from the individual clouds.

    Yes, and occasionally you get sunshine early morning or late in the day, with a storm overhead.

    Construction NAIL Guns being used as a gun.

    Modern nail guns (last 30 years or more), can only be fired when the tip is pressed firmly against a surface.

    They cannot be fired in the air.

    Just watched a Nicolas Cage film where this was done. Very lame.

    I thought the "555" area code was set aside for movies and television.
