It had John Kerrys balls and the one in Pulp Fiction had his backbone, both were lost in tragic boating accidents though

somehow, I can't but think that whatever is in the case, it's of much more concern to the Brits than to us

Maybe it's the uncensored Stevens report, or a copy of The Committee.

I wanna know why he put his .45 behind some milk crates.
I wanna know why they initiate an ambush that takes 15 minutes to finish(instead of a choke point that was all over the fucking route)
I wanna know where I can get some of that teflon spray that defeats body armor off a richochet.
I wanna know why they had to waste katarina Witt
I wanna know when a glock with a bushnell holotech became a sniper rifle.

AND I WANT TO KNOW WHY WE DON'T HAVE A MOVIE FORUM WHERE WE COULD PIN THE SAME FUCKING THREADS THAT POP UP EVERY THREE MONTHS.

There are some serious questions to be answered. Fuck the case.
Oh, and don't watch Pulp Fiction. That will piss you off too.

Tell us how you really feel. If movies were always acurate to real lire they wouldn't be as fun. Expecting the hollywood types to get all of these minor details right is a pipe dream. Movies must not be any fun for you if you can't suspend some amount of belief and be entertained by a good story.

It's like watching porn and saying that you didn't enjoy it because it could never happen in real life. Hot chicks with big tits don't deliver pizzas and screw you at the drop of a hat, but I don't let that ruin my movie.

I saw Day After Tomarrow and I didnt make it past the first set of disasters. I got pissed when all those tornadoes spawned simultaneously, and that one on the Hollywood sign hill. Ive never seen a tornado spawn on a hill, and/or actually move on a hill. Isnt that impossible??!! Doesnt golf ball sized hail need some pretty high winds to form?? So why is it that in japan it can without huge wind gusts...

In an interview with the cast, one cast member said that the contents of the case were irrelevent to the script (i.e. there wasnt plutonium, gold, or anything interesting like that). But the property personal put toblerone or some other chocolate in there for fun.

It was an incriminating video tape of John Kerry and Teddy Kenedy bumbin' uglies...

It's a plot device meant to intrigue viewers and focus them on the story instead of the "thing." Used extensively by Hitchcock. See sc.essortment.com/alfredhitchcoc_rvhd.htm

Well.....if you'd turn on the director's comentary, you'd find your answers to the question of whats in the case, as well as the .45 - milkcrates thing, etc etc

Keys to a HMMWV...

A box of 'grid squares'...

A small roll of 'flight line'...

A tire guage for the road-wheels on an M1A2...

Some 'rifle gas' (Paging SteyrAug)...

And a left-handed monkey wrench...

I assumed it was some kind of Irish or Celtic artifact, but it was probably some kind of nuclear secret.

It was weapons grade naquada that SG-3 retrieved through an assult mission on P3S-452.

It was all a CIA setup to let DeNiro's charactrer get to the IRA guy. I always assumed that it was empty and they'd been telling anybody who asked that it was whatever they wanted. Kind of like Kerry making campaign promises.
