- When running from a crazed killer, why does a female victim still wear those high heels? Why not take them off and run?

- Why do guys carry women on their backs in K-drama?

- Why does a hastily-disconnected bomb timer always stop at 00:01?

- Why do those clueless guys hold their guns sideways?

EDITED:

When I created this thread, it was titled "Movies: Why do they ... ?" A forum mod later changed the thread title to "The "Whys" of Asian Cinema".

Considering it's now restricted to Asian cinema, let me ask further questions

- Why it seems there's always a fish tank in an Asian action movie?
- There's a belief that hair continues to grow after death, so how is it that a ghost girl's hair is long but a ghost guy's hair isn't?

I'm afraid I can't answer any of these questions, catex, but I do have another on the same theme as your first one. Why, when investigating a mysterious noise/house invasion in horror films do females always wear their skimpiest underwear? For that matter, why do they always check out the cellar, possibly the spookiest room in any house?

^ I admit I haven't thought about why they wear skimpiest underwear.

This thread is to welcome more similar questions.

carrying the girl in front is a heavier burden than carrying her PiggyBack. the man can go on and on when he carried her piggyback. if he carries her in front, sooner or later, the arms get tired more easily than the back. so the answer here is..... it is more PRACTICAL.
carrying a person in front is more or less a WESTERN custom while carrying piggybcak is more of an oriental thing.

the bomb stopping at 00:01 thing is much more exciting then people rushing into a disconnect a bomb and finding they have 30 mins to do that before it detonates...wheres the thrill?
but i agree though..its predictable

^ That's what the creepy one eye peeking through thing is for ala Sadako. Either that or they don't really need to see since they can walk through walls. Just listen to the screaming/crying and go towards it.

Men don't have the right hair. Neither do little boys but they often have some other skill like making cat noises. As for where they go....maybe they can get bit parts in shitty American horror movies.

well on that note.. here's another reason? because they dont want to stub their toes running on that rocky ground, muddy ground, wherever, etc.

A couple of irritating questions I get:

Why there is an indoors fish tank in every HK action movie?

Why every film/drama has a scene of someone eating?
(Once I thought there wouldn't be one in a film about a trek through Antarctica. I was wrong.)

@peacedrunx24 - I didn't edit the thread title. Someone with better English did.
