    Drives me crazy but no one around me seems to mind.

    I hate movies where:

    Women faint and are unconscious for some convenient amount of time. Bull shit, that does not happen. Even if you did faint seeing the scary giant gorilla (which is also doubtful), the minute you were supine you would wake up.

    Men are punched and they become unconscious for some convenient amount of time. Nope, that doesn't happen either. I don't know if there is some ninja move where you can knock a person out but regardless the way being knocked out is portrayed in the movies is baloney.
