At least Elmo knows to keep his booger hook off the bang switch.

All the ones where someone racks the slide and such after holding someone at gunpoint and no bullet/shell falls out get me.

The lost 007 movie Zardoz. When Bond, James Bond carried a real man's gun and wore a manly diaper! What gadgets did Q hide in those soft cotton folds? Rocket boots I presume?








IMHO, this constitutes the worst movie wardrobe fail of all time. Someone should have been flogged.

With a mustache like that, who cares what he is wearing? That is a real man right there.

The worst thing about the Bond case is that someone HAD to go out of their way to add the Glock. It wasn't a simple mistake of putting a gun in the movie that doesn't fit the time period, but rather making the decision to change the cover on a whim many years later. To me that is much worse because it is something so obvious. And for such a high profile movie, I'm sure a few people had to sign off on it. Either that or it's a bad April Fools joke.

It makes me wonder if somewhere at the MGM dvd cover studio, a graphics designer, who is a rampant Glock fanboy is getting his jollies off............

I recently saw argo and one of the actors jumped out of a car with a 100 round drum attached to a full auto glock. I almost walked out if it wasnt for the fact the rest of the film was so good.

Edit: Nothing wrong per se, but to think anyone would actually use that in the streets of Iran during the late 70s is mindblowingly retarded.

FYI, the Glocks were NOT shown on the cover, but on the paper DVD inserts.

The cover of the DVD case looked like this:

OMG, what movie is this?


The fact that the remade cover had a different gun in the old bond's hands is just dumb. They took a picture that had a walther and put in a glock for some unknown reason. No one buying a bond remake is doing so because he has a gun that is "cooler" than a walther.

Whats wrong with the Total Recall gun?

Looks like cookie monster is trying to kill himself. Looks to be a FAL with no buttstock.

The one where a 1911 shoots 14 rounds without reloads is good.
