** Likewise, all depictions of parachutes tend to be the old-fashioned "bell" parachutes. In [[RealityIsUnrealistic reality]], they are today used only by [[ItsRainingMen army paratroopers]] (as they open quickly at low altitudes) and dropping gear and equipment. ''All'' skydivers today use square "wing" parachutes.

* ''Franchise/MassEffect'' has a couple examples. Along with the above-mentioned film grain, one NPC in the third game mentions turning off the sound emulators so he can watch spacecraft take off and land silently. This suggests that SpaceIsNoisy is [[EnforcedTrope enforced]] ''in-universe,'' probably due to this trope.

Horses hooves *do* sound like a pair of coconut shells being tapped together - when the horse is walking on cobblestones or some other hard pavement. But not all depictions of horses happen on the cobbled streets of London or New York. Nevertheless, filmakers and radio producers stuck the coconut sound on the audio track even when the horse was on grass or gravel (rarely even in synch with the movement of the horse until audiences came to expect the specific the audio cue. Real recorded hoofbeats on later, more sophisticated productions sounded "wrong" to test audiences (or more likely, clueless [[ExecutiveMeddling producers]])

** There's been a jarring trend for makers of [[ThreeDMovie 3D Movies]] to add in lens flare and ''then'' apply 3D effects to it. This makes the ''lens flare'' come out of the screen towards you.

*** This is more conspicuous in places where highways are paved with concrete rather than asphalt, since concrete is a harder material that stresses the tires more.
