I love movies, especially old/traditional war movies; I can’t help picking them apart. There was one scene in “WE Were Soldiers” about the Air Cavalry, when they had to blow a new landing zone. It showed the soldiers making a few loose wraps of detcord around sapling trees maybe 1” to 2” or better in diameter. Now from playing with this stuff at demolition ranges, and a few times in the field, I know it’s probably going to take more than a few wraps, and they better be tight, for it to cut those trees.

More a pet peeve in 90% of action or war movies: characters are clicking off safe, sound effect is racking a round in. Alternate: after some kind of gun battle or area-clearing, one character confronting another racks a round into the chamber to demonstrate how serious he is, and no chambered round flies.
