My wife and oldest daughter will not even watch Military or Police based Movies or TV Dramas with me anymore. I drive them up a tree with my comments.

While military, or even general accuracy is nice in movies/shows - it's important to remember, they are just entertainment.
Basically yes. However, it depends on the intentions. It can be used to persuade.

I'm with 03USMC. I drive friends and relatives nuts with my picking apart war movies. "Hey that captain has his railroad tracks on sideways." "Shutup!"

It used to be worse. I still remember coming home to my parents house one day and my nephew who was about 6 at the time said "Oh no! Uncle ___ is here! We gotta watch WAR movies!!"

Other memorable military movie moments were from the Rambo movies where Sylvester Stalone reloaded his M-72 LAW just by pushing it in and pulling it out again..
Or when he fired an RPG from inside a helicopter..

The most accrate movie I've seen is Band of Brothers.

Some movies are just annoying. I get in trouble trying to tell my family or friends whats right and wrong.

Also, as someone said before some conpanies don't have the money to be corrrect and hire people like Cpt. Dale Dye and the is a law that says that non-military persons can't wear certain ranks, insignia, ect.....

It is the same thing as a person commenting or critisizing a movie out loud and during the movie.

Keeping the mouth shut can prevent angry agitations and hostilities.

Stargate SG-1 is not intended to be realistic. It's science fiction. You should know that.

Curious, are you among one of the many bizaare Stargate fans out there?
