I know how that can be. I have an engineering degree in IT and I've also competed at pretty high level in martial arts. I can get annoyed both at people trying to handle computers and at people fighting in movies. Sometimes I can handle it fine, other times I can't.

I find that it's generally easier for me to handle it in a movie like TDW where things isn't taken too seriously and it doesn't even try to be realistic. When a movie goes for more realism and fails I react stronger.
