I have a lot of fun with this one. As a cracker, I can say this is usually young white kids. Whenever I see a horror movie with my friend C (who's black) I'll turn to him and say, uh huh, white people.

Reminds me of this clever Geico ad.

RE: Things in movies that bother me.
Which brings us to chainsaws... They'd actually make real shitty weapons. Great for dismembering a corpse I suppose, but not too great as a weapon against someone actually fighting back. Big and bulky, and not that great for making quick cuts. If someone comes at me wielding a chainsaw, they're gonna miss and have my pocket knife sticking out of their kidney before they're ready for another swing.

It's a terror weapon - it instills fear of the dreadful damage it might do.

You're damn right it does. Sadcryface How about an axe as a compromise? Still terrifying as fuck, and probably easier to wield.

Yeah an axe is much more practical.

RE: Things in movies that bother me.
another thing ive just noticed... In TV shows or movies that are set in the 50s or 60s etc and they are listening to music... they only seem to listen to the songs that are on those 'Greatest Hits of the 60s' CDs or whatever.

I'm always bothered by that. It's a lazy cheap way to fit in nostalgia and let you know, This is set in this era.. by these popular songs that you know 40 years later. It's a trope that has been done to death.

It has happened a few times, but I definitely was happily amused when I noticed films doing a contrast to that. Like people from a specific era like the 90s in a movie listening to songs from the 70s... Since that's actually something that happens with people. They actually don't just listen to songs that are popular at the time.
