...sword fighting in the movies?

No. Movie fights are purely meant to entertain the audience. Big flashy movements, with large, heavy shiny weapons and armour usually do the trick.

However 'back in the day' where HEMA was still used in actual combat (during the 15th century for example) such utter nonsense would get you killed. HEMA is a highly evolved martial art for which many, unknowingly, gave their lives. Those that lived to tell the tale taught the new generation and so it went on and on until in the 16th century when the rise of hand held guns and social changes created distance. The distance was created both between people and the battlefield as well as between the people on it.
