Frivolous movie thread.

Has anyone else ever watched a scene in a film and thought it would be interesting if they armed the characters differently?

My favourite would be the drive in movie theatre shoot out from ‘Heat’.
Visualise Val Kilmer using a Lee Enfield No 4 rather than an H&K G3. This would have to include at least one reload using a 5 round .303 charger.

I am not for one moment suggesting that the No 4 would be a better choice, just that that scene with slickly used bolt action would damned cool.

I have often thought that it would be interesting if John Wick was armed with a movie prop with the identical recoil and muzzle blast of the 2011 hand cannon he was purported to be shooting instead of the recoil of a Lone Ranger cap gun.
