Too late, you had your shot. I won!
Yeah, but Troy was 8 years ago, so you were wrong.

If some seagulls in "The Birds" started shooting lasers out of their eyes or crows started exploding like grenades, it wouldn't be acceptable to just say "oh well, the birds were already pretty unrealistic." There is a line that cannot be crossed and still maintain a credible set of rules.
Well said.

You're thnking like someone who is familiar with Zombie lore. People would see their relatives sick, and try to help them and get bitten when it was unexpected.
At this point, there've been so many goddamn zombie movies, memes, fads, costumes and etc. that I can't decide what's more unrealistic, zombies or the notion of a contemporary society without zombie lore. As good as the Dawn of the Dead remake was, every time the characters showed that they'd never even heard of the concept of reanimated corpses, my suspension of disbelief was utterly shattered.

Actually Troy was 3,200 years ago, so as wrong as I am, movie logic tells us that I'm right, ruggedly handsome and that I win the internet.
