Since this neither just apply to anime or drama, I'm putting it here. It may have been done before.

Anyways I was thinking about genreal errors in televised materials. I am NOT talking about specific errors in specific movies and series, that would take forever. I am not talking (well, writing actually) about dubs or subs or the like. I am talking about commonly known mistakes in the movie/series industry in the way they represent materials. Here are a few I've heard or though about:

-People walking unharmed through windows. This apparently is possible, I am told, but you would have to be at about 5000 degrees celcius, and you would be very red (and dead)
-The flung body. People get flung by bullets, like half a metre backwards. I am told that then the recoil would have to be equally strong, so the assailant would have to be flung half a metre backwards as well, and normal guns don't have the capacity
-The exploding gas tank. I am told that gas tanks rarely/never explode, even if the car is flung all over the place
-The primary timeline would have to be one without time travel, because it would have to take place in it. In other words: even if time travel is possible, the first one would have to take place in a timeline where no time travel has happend before (making some scifi ludicrous)
-Clothes. People, especially poor people, are too well dressed in movies from the past. Even when their clothes are dirty and a bit torn, I never see any patchwork. Which is ridicolous. Also they all seem to have shoes and walk around in them with no thought about the tear, although this was a major financial mistake for a poor man
-And the favourite bottle scene: the bottle explodes into tiny bits. We all see the problem.


Anyone else got some common errors?

That and the fact that people can take a LOT of damage: a guy drove a car on girl, she got hit then stuck on the window, after this he drove the car (with her still on) trough numerous brick walls and finally shoved her into a concrete wall with the car. She wasn't even hurt (Die hard 4).

I guess that's why they're called "MOVIES"?.. B'cos they're not real?..
Duh, common sense. That's why you're not suppose to believe everything you see & hear.
