When we watch a movie, this is the kinda thing I tell my wife about. It generally helps her sleep!
I was re-watching The Cincinnati Kid. Rip Torn's character Slade has a one lane, shooting range adjacent to his great room. I was surprised to see him pull out a 1st. Model Match Target Woodsman equipped with fancy Franzite target stocks! He shot three times and, because he was shooting blanks, he had to pull the slide back for each shot.

My wife hates it when we watch that sort of thing in the movies!!
Sicario was on a week or so ago, and you can plainly see this special forces dude "cover" an insurgent group with an M4 with the BOLT LOCKED OPEN. People getting blown backwards from a gunshot, 7000 machine gun rounds fired with no one falling - yet a Walther PPK is somehow apocalyptic at a couple hundred yards, fireball explosion grenades. ...oh my that stuff sticks out.

My wife politely listens and nods. I thought she had tuned my comments out. Every now and then she notices something and asks about it.
Both of my boys (full-house adults now) have started commenting around their friends.
