    Saw some pretty good shaving technique in 'Operation Finale' . Way better than most straight shaving that I've seen on film.

    Ok so, I'm no expert with straights, and i've made plenty of ouchy mistakes along the way - too much pressure, not enough or improper lathering...these are all skills that takes time to learn and it's silly to expect people to get these sort of things right unless they know. But WTF, how do you get ANGLE wrong? 90 degree angles, i saw that in that awful scene in The Walking Dead scene as well - HOW do you get that wrong? PURE animal instinct should prevent you from running a blade across your face at a 90 degree angle (or like a motion parallel to the edge). Again, I've made PLENTY of ouchy mistakes myself but I did NOT need to be told not to run the razor at a 90 degree angle, that one was REALLY obvious.

    It may make sense to THINK that 90 degree angle would work, like imagining it but once you have a blade against a face it should be really obvious, right?

    Well, at least he did the weed AFTER the shave in that scene i saw...cuz believe me you DO NOT want to shave while on weed.
