How's this for annoying?
Have you noticed that so many of the recent movies give people a really bad impression of our USAF's planes? Transformers, Hulk, Ironman, Die Hard... I mean seriously, when was the last time one of the USAF's planes got the respect they deserve on film?

I do like to see active DoD participation in film projects rather than pure crap (Independence Day). It gives a movie realism that is impossible with CG or prop and set building.

I don't mind some crazyness sometimes, but it's usually unnecessary.The largest problem with that is the unbelievable lack of effort towards realism from fimmakers. I think the F-35B in Die Hard 4 was a completely idiotic cameo. No pilot in his right... More
