What did you think of Planet Terror when Cherry Darling is causing all sortsa hell with her asault rifle leg yet is never seen pulling the trigger? TELEPATHY? Or is that to far from DA RULES to be possible?

An attractive woman hiking her leg up does not have me wondering about the mechanics of the trigger. TongueOut

Okay guys, for all who replied to my posts (good and bad) knock yourselves out.

You know Mr. WyreWizard, if I were you I'd just stop watching "B" type movies entirely. Since I'm not you I think I'll just ignore you from this point on.

Nobody's stopping you

Oh by the way...when machines are made,and every flaw is elimanated, think of the CHALLENGER space shuttle...

While it is true that Challenger wasn't designed as a BOMB.  It simply failed because of a lack of proper maintenance.  You see, shuttles like challenger were designed to take off using explosive forces.  These forces have enough magnitude to knock down an entire city block.  Now challenger had been in use for over six years.  But the equipment had reached its failure point and as a result, we got those nice little fireworks that one spring afternoon in 1986.
But the machine in the Fly was not old like challenger.  It was just built.

Machines doing more than what they are designed to do: I can understand this was a simple malfuction in the device itself.  But the device should have had a safety protocol to prevent this from happening.

Maybe you missed the part where it was explained that the teleportation machines were experimental. Anything in the testing phases is going to have some bugs to work out (pun intended!) and have some unforseen setbacks and side-effects.

And yet, wrong again.

The flaw which brought Challenger down were newly manufactured o-rings which cracked due to the cold temperatures that morning.

I sure hope you aren't pathetic enough to consider the death of the crew aboard the Challenger was nothing more than 'nice little fireworks.

You actually started contributing to a conversation, short it may have been, today. Let's bring your personality up to speed as well.

That is so not cool...................

One of my 5th grade teachers was actually one of the teachers on the list to get on that flight and she passed out when she saw the footage back in the day.

I assumed the gun was redesigned to detect impulses in the remaining muscles in her leg.  TeddyR  She can cause the gun to fire by telling her leg to wiggle her (phantom) toes.  You know, 'cause sophisticated mechanical engineering inside a prison is much more plausible than guns that fire via telepathy.

Booed here also......I'm guessing you're a troll, if one uses the definition of trolling as someone who seeks to create discord for their own amusement, and in every thread here, I usually skip right over your remarks to get to the real posts.  That was especially heinous though.

I saw Robert Rodriguez on a talk show when Grindhouse was released, he "claimed" the explanation for how she fired the gun was in one of the missing reels.

I back up the Kooshmeister, both teleport devices were experimental, I doubt either would meet OSHA regulations or have much in the realm of safety protocols. And didn't the plots of both films involve human error. Neither scientist planned on what would happen if something else got into the teleport pod; in the second film this even happened after Seth Brundell tried to teach the teleporter what living matter was.

And from his earlier threads, WW has no suspension of disbelief for mainstream movies either. If he's legit, he seems to enjoy hating films for failing to rise to his standard.
