Quick Tumblr Post On The Theatrical Storytelling Perspective

There's nothing like throwing on a great movie and just stepping outside the otherwise constant stream of thoughts that occupy your daily existence. Instead, you can check out for awhile and get lost in the lives of the characters onscreen. Sometimes though, it can be tough to follow what's going on if you literally can't make out what's taking place on the screen. This quick Tumblr post does an effective job at pointing that out with Game of Thrones as an example. If you're looking for some more gold from Tumblr check out this Tumblr thread about an Ultima Online player that unleashed a nuclear revenge as a tavern owner.

It turns out that it's really not that hard to ruin an otherwise perfectly respectable movie with one word. One word can unleash a whole lot of damage on that meticulously crafted movie title. At the same time though, there are so many crazy movies out there that it wouldn't be shocking if some of these actually ended up being movies. If you're looking for another entertaining post involving productions on the big screen, check out this nostalgic Twitter thread on bizarre, obscure, and straight up cursed TV shows

Things Movies Do That People Absolutely Hate

There are certain times in this chaotic life when you actually might find yourself thinking that you wish life were just a little bit like what it's portrayed as in the movies. Then, then there are other times where it's a very good thing that life doesn't compare to what it's depicted as in movies. It's probably a good thing that computers don't make a ton of bleep/blop/blip noises when we type on them. That might get just a tad bit irritating after awhile.

Unrealistic Movie Tropes That Annoy People To No End

Movies are great at filling our vulnerable and rampant imaginations with all kinds of unrealistic expectations and desires about how the world should work. Sometimes it's those clever little plot holes that escapes the viewer's attention, and ends up instilling in them a belief that would hold no ground back in the real world. Romantic comedies in particular are great at that. But hey, if you can just enter into the experience of watching the movie, well aware that life's a whole lot more difficult than it's portrayed on the big screen, you'll be just fine.

There's no denying the fact that "The Lighthouse" was one whole trip of a cinematic experience. In particular, this segment where Robert Pattinson just goes off about some stench brewing in the lighthouse is pure comedy gold.

During the filming of Doctor Dolittle, a young SAS soldier and future famous explorer Ranulph Fiennes decided he didn't like all the noise and trouble they'd brought to his little village, so he took action by gathering up a bunch of explosives from one of his training exercises and blowing the film set's dam right the hell up. Cracked's Jordan Breeding and Fact Fiend's Karl Smallwood discuss all this and whether they're allowed to swear on the channel.

Film Tropes That Grind People's Gears Like None Other

There are far too many elements present throughout a movie that can possess the audience with all kinds of unrealistic expectations, or just flat out frustration that life certainly ain't like it's portrayed in the movies. Like the whole waking up with no bedhead situation. Or perhaps the frequent examples of entirely unnecessary self-sacrifice. Maybe you'll resonate with some of these.

Apparently, when Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones, was released it garnered quite a bit of spicy feedback from folks that thought the title was plain old ridiculous. Ewan McGregor's face says it all.

Man, one can only imagine the amount of panic that must've flooded Viggo Mortensen's psyche upon learning that a fellow actor who was in a boat, racing down a wild river didn't know how to swim. Wonder if the guy was just messing with him all along.

Presumably, every single writer in Hollywood was at some point in time a teenager. At the very least, they probably inject themselves with teenage blood in order to keep their organs strong and their skin moist. So how in the world do they know nothing about them? Thankfully, "Doctor" Jordan Breeding is oft accused of having a teenage sense of humor, so join him as he tears apart teenage movie tropes that have no grounding in reality.

Did Obi-Wan WANT Padme and Anakin to get together in Star Wars? Was John Connor encouraging Kyle Reese to get with his mom in Terminator? Should Passengers have given Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence an entirely different ending? "Doctor" Jordan Breeding slips into something a bit more comfortable to take a deeply embarrassing look at some of film's most deeply disturbing romantic couples. So grab a glass of something bubbly, and start your Valentine's Day Weekend the right way.

Everybody assumes Keanu Reeve's John Wick's greatest skill is his ability to headshot 20 dudes in five seconds, but what if his actual greatest ability is being a super nice guy and a great friend? Carly Snowdon and Jordan Breeding dive straight into the shadowy weeds to discuss the qualifications of an expert assassin, what it means to be a good friend, and whether there will ever be a better action franchise than "The Raid."

Despite the vast and wondrous spectrum that is man, Hollywood franchises like Mission Impossible, James Bond, and the DCEU all seem to have extremely specific ideas of what a man is supposed to be… and they're not super great. "Doctor" Jordan Breeding digs into it all, because he is a man - give or take.
