This applies to the 'several day siege, hostage, terrorist hold etc' movies mostly.

Its meant to be an account of 72 hours or more, why does nobody ever need to take a pee? presuming of course they havnt already pee'd themselves.

Okay this ones never spoken about, but there are 3.5 billion women on the planet who need to do "feminine" things once a month, thats 100 million women every day that need to do women things... never ever comes up in a movie.

Blowing a nose.

Sneezing.

Simply scratching your ass when its itchy.

What else never comes up in movies?

Pick food from their teeth
Flick a bogey
Remove ear wax
Clean their specs
Forget where they left the car keys
Charge their mobile phone

I quite liked Tarantino's Pulp Fiction when the hitman (John Travolta) leaves his machine gun on the counter while he pops to the toilet after hours of waiting around.

Even hitmen need to poop. Gave the film one more "real life" feel that made it feel like a story was being described in infinite detail from a good friend, than another hollywood plastic cgi 'master piece'.

The detail is in the detail

True, they also dont answer "hey bob whats up?" rather than "talk to me" or "whats the sitch?".

people also never seem to eat ever. even if your going A to B grab a sandwich you crazy alien killing human dreadnought.

I never say 'goodbye' at the end of my phone conversations.
I just hang up.


Things they don't do in movies ....
No one ever has a head cold or has to shower or poop during drama movies.

I think we all know pulp fiction is the exception.

I believe this is one of the things that made it great, real, gritty, strangely associable even though it was about gangsters which im not remotely connected to - but it made me feel like a 3rd guy in the movie.

Some times its not all about the plot and the explosions, the movies that make you feel fill in the gaps.

I find sci fi space movies particularly leave out human necessities.

You are a very smart puppy.

Excellent observation.

Now why would TPTB want us to NOT relate reality to MASS MEDIA PRODUCTIONS? Why would they need to REINFORCE the facts that this is entertainment value stuff by intentionally excluding tactile everyday Humanitarian realitys we all connect to?

Is it because they dont ever want us seeing their productions as anything but 100% science fiction,and is this because they are subversively interjecting truths into these Productions because a greater power is demanding they tell Humanity these truths,and are they afraid that if the masses make to much of a connection to reality on-screen that we might begin to figure things out?


It is trickery on a Global scale and YOU just caught on by looking at the things they DO NOT INCLUDE instead of only the things the do include,sheer genius.

Well, back in the fifties they didn't show sex. The furthest they ever went was kissing.

So we seem to be making progress.

But seriously, the public really may not want it. Sure on Sci-Fi, once in a while, just to see how the toilets work, it would be good, but I can get a mirror and watch myself poop. I do not need to see it in movies. They are bad enough now without adding more useless crap.

I have seen them clean their glasses, but it is mostly for dramatic effect.
The bad guy cleans his glasses while telling the good guy how he will die, or a Doctor giving the bad news.

I should have explained it better. Yes i have seen where they "wipe" over their glasses.
When i said clean their glasses, i meant to a actually spray cleaning fluid on them and then clean them with a cloth.

I think what you are trying to say is Tarantino is not that idiot director that relies fully on CGI, lens flares and explosions.
I agree!

I'm sure there are some art house films out there that is doing exactly what you want.

But the question is, do you really want to see all the boring, non-plot progressing bits?

Sitting in front of a computer, at night, waiting for the drier to finish it's climatic spin and dry the work clothes for the next day, trawling through ATS posts. Surely there's a movie somewhere you could slot this into. Peter Jackson, the ball is in your hands.
