I watched the movie "Final Destination 2" (great movie, gory) but there was one scene that I REALLY cringed at..

Pregnant lady in a jail cell, and a Sheriff Deputy outside the cell, talking to her; polishing a glock, WITH IT POINTED AT HER AND FINGER ON THE TRIGGER. Oh, so no magazine in there right? Well, that's ok, as we see him STUFF a magazine in there, WITH FINGER STILL ON THE TRIGGER... and oh... MUZZLE POINTED AT THE PREGNANT WOMAN from a seated position..

It's stuff like that, that makes me want to barf on Hollywood..

Other then that, the movie was good; lived up to the first one, which is rare for a sequel..

I hated when that nova got hit by the train, though. Made me want to go outside and give mine a big hug.:D

twoblink, so all the people dying in the movie didn't matter to you?:confused:

People dying is part of the plot. Poor or inaccurate gun handling/use is a techinical error that destroys the realism of a movie. Two seperate issues.

True dat. Thanks for pointing that out. :cool: Perhaps the cop dies- and if he does- we can say "that was because he was breaking the gun rules." OMG! There could be a movied called "Gun Rule Ghosts" and ok- basically- like- the plot would take place in some sort of gun range- and it's haunted by Jeff Cooper's ghost. Whoever breaks a gun safety rule- gets nailed- like.. totally nailed with like guns firing all over the place and stuff. I'd pay to see that :evil:

I interpreted it to lead the audience to believe he would accidentally plug her while acting stupid. I think it was intentional regardless of the motive.

You expected the gun to go off, and shoot the woman. That was part of the plot, they wanted to entice you to see what would kill whom..

The people dying didn't bother me, that was the point of the movie. If nobody died, it would have been a poor sequel to the original.

Even if it is part of the plot, it's just bad pistol handling..

My brother told me that ever since I pointed out the "finger on trigger" epidemic from Hollywood, he notices it everywhere.

Don't movies use technical editors and technical consultants to make sure errors do not happen? Someone is not doing their job...or are they :scrutiny:

At least the finger on the trigger error actually resulted in an accident in Pulp Fiction...

Good call WKW,

That scene was cut too. Quintin had John shooting an ND into the kid's neck. He was still alive, but badly hurt and unable to talk. John and Samuel argue if they should finish him off, while the kid looks on in amazment. It was considered too violent for the rest of the 'coffee' scene. Heh.
