@MontereyJack,
There is also an excellent movie, Mrs. Brown, that takes place about two years after the death of Queen Victoria's husband, Albert. She's in seclusion and in a real funk. A servant, Mr. Brown, gains her trust and influences her so much that her staff refers to her as Mrs. Brown behind her back. Starring Judi Dench and Bill Connelly.

John Wick 3 Parabellum. Totally mindless and hyperbolic violence and melodrama. Exactly what I wanted to see and expected, because I’d seen the first two. It’s insane the kinds of stunts Keanu Reeves and Halle Berry do at ages 54 and 52 respectively. Phenomenal fight scenes- maybe the best I’ve ever seen. The fight scene with Halle Berry and her two Belgian Malinois attack dogs are flat out A.MAZ.ING. - almost worth the price of admission by itself.

Good fight choreography, but I question the armor-piercing shotgun slugs.

That was a great movie and Billy Connolly fans show that hes not just a pretty face comedian.

They are used in military combat to puncture engine blocks. There are even commercially available 12 gauge armor piercing shotgun rounds. Look it up.

“They Shall Not Grow Old is a 2018 documentary film directed and produced by Peter Jackson. The film was created using original footage of World War I from the Imperial War Museum's archives, most of it previously unseen, alongside audio from BBC and Imperial War Museum (IWM) interviews of British servicemen who fought in the conflict. Most of the footage has been colorized and transformed with modern production techniques, with the addition of sound effects and voice acting to be more evocative and feel closer to the soldiers' actual experiences.”

WOW!
On PPV now. Intense.

@snood,
One of my past metal mfr clients Made AP shotgun slugs out of W carbide. I dont think theyve used depleted U in Shotguns, sold to civilians.

These are mostly used to blow varmints apart at medium ranges. Itll drop a bear mostly because it eviscerates the beast.

@farmerman,
I would expect an AP round to leave a narrow wound channel with very little additional damage.

I'm skeptical, but in any case they weren't using them to attack car engines in the movie.

And now that I'm thinking about it, since they are representing his car as a BOSS 429, and since they built fake Mustangs to use in the first two movies instead of smashing up actual classic cars, why didn't they just build fake BOSS 429s instead of building fake ordinary Mustangs and pretending that this is what a BOSS 429 looks like?

I'm sure there are people who sell such rounds, but they would only boost a shotgun's armor penetration to the level of an ordinary non-armor-piercing rifle round.

So why not just use automatic rifles to defend against the attackers (especially since they would get real armor penetration from AP rifle rounds)?

@oralloy,
I’ll think about all that. But maybe we can let this thread be about movies?
If you want you could start a thread about questionable depictions of munitions in media.

@snood,
Last night we watched Ocean's 8, I thought it was terrific. It was chock full of talented actors and very a slick production. I don't remember much buzz about this film but it was very enjoyable.

Rocketman (2019), 8/10. One of the rare jukebox musicals that actually works as a watchable biopic.

Taron Egerton will likely get an Oscar nod in 2020. And as things go so far? Deservedly so.

@tsarstepan,
Orange County (2002)

I streamed this on Pluto TV.

Starring Colin Hanks--son of Tom--, Jack Black, and, surprisingly, bit parts played by Lily Tomlin, Chevy Chase, and Kevin Kline.

A pretty good comedy about a young, aspiring writer trying to get into Stanford.

Gosh. With the reviews as bad as they are, maybe I should wait and just rent the Blu-ray. Sad

A Star is Born on HBO. I’m amazed how much I liked it. The two principals and Sam Elliot are unusually talented.

Just wait. It's not as bad as the Rotten Tomatoes score makes it out to be. But it is pretty discombobulated and disappointing. Kind of a tepid mess.

I was just scanning for future movies that I might be interested in seeing one day, and I came across this entry:

"Super Secret Ghost Project (untitled as of yet)"

http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=supersecretghostproject.htm

I wonder if that means the theme of the movie involves "ghosts" or if "ghost project" is just to further emphasize how super secret the movie is.
