[quote]Instead of using "rebuffed" could we say "refused"? You're making it sound as if the English spitefully and wrongly snubbed a generous peace overture by … ADOLF HITLER, a man whose credibility as a promise keeper was, at that point, about as strong as a wet tissue paper. [/quote]

Back on point... My pet peeve is when they reuse old footage from the movie in flashbacks that are clearly supposed to be occurring in the character's head. It just seems like laziness--shoot the scene from a second angle at least, or do it right and have the flashback footage from the first-person ...
