Just look at this parody review.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LtsnToMAaPk (The Onion Looks Back At 'Saving Private Ryan')

Try to think about real life people vs dramatic experiences in films. The most realistic attempts would be an interview or real life footage or just make a cartoon of something surreal like Pop Eye.

Creating fantasy and imagination like Lords of the Rings is fantastic.

This is more for dramatic kinks for people who likes to imagine what war is like. Look... dramatic effects oh wow this is so much like what its like. I just wish they'd stop making these films to not make the next generation believe this.

Come to think of it, theatre is more realistic if you think about it since they don't have any musical score or edits to deal with.

Most brainwashed TV viewers who has never read history or don't care in the type of materialistic society of shallow minded humans who's mind is on getting a big house and cars and don't value the idea of work aslong as things sparkle.

For example as a kid i looked at pictures or paintings of Olaf the saint who Christianized Norway in terms of the vikings who got stabbed by spears in a battlefield, and i imagined vikings being warrior people. And then Marvel stuff today has that meterosexual Thor or whatever. Yeah it kinda ruins the expectation i have more or less.

Most people, sans the mentally handicapped, know this by the time they reach their tweens. A few other things that aren't real: entertainment wrestling, Santa Claus, the tooth fairy, the Easter bunny, and God-- *waits for the backlash on the last one

I am just asking for it to be faithful to the expectations. Movies tend to throw that out the window. I mean i would say Hercules in New York as good as it is. Its more faithful to greek mythology than most hollywood films in general. And that movie is from 1969, or american street life to put that out there too. Actually most movies from the 70s was more realistic in terms of that, Dirty Harry, Godfather etc. Even here they had the same style of directing it because they resembled more like humans who could react and talk and not for drama bonus points i think.

In some cases, that would completely defeat the purpose of the film being for entertainment, though. Short of documentaries, ficumentaries, and Sundance films on a selective basis, I don't recall ever seeing a movie that was true-to-life or completely faithful to tradition. There is always some sensationalization and play to cultural attitudes, and the filmmakers tend to emphasize/reinforce stereotypes and forego social taboos (ie: slavery and pederasty in ancient Greek culture.)
