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. 

A collection of film tropes that frustrate people like none other.

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.

Should Passengers have given Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence an entirely different ending?

So grab a glass of something bubbly, and start your Valentine's Day Weekend the right way.

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.

Tumblr Users Analyze "The Incredibles" To Oblivion

Talk about an Incredible discourse. We can always count on the wandering minds of Tumblr to put their heads together, and churn out some real gems. This particular roundtable discussion centers on the infamous film, "The Incredibles." Maybe one of the best superhero movies of all time. So many easter eggs and intricate patterns throughout the film. The only question is how much of what's being discussed was intentional on the part of the filmmakers vs. pure coincidence?

Annoyingly Unrealistic Movie Logic Moments

Yeah, if only life were actually like the movies sometimes. But alas, instead, this is the real world baby. People have things like morning breath, gifts can be impossibly hard to wrap, or the outlandish terminology that's dispensed when it comes to describing the shady underworld of hacking. Movies certainly take their liberties when it comes to "portraying" the real world. Oh well, that can make for a great part of the escape from reality. 

A collection of annoyingly unrealistic movie logic moments | tahonng 3h 1 Award way gifts are wrapped. They're always boxes with actual lids (like shoe boxes, not ones with flaps) and lid is wrapped separately box so open present, they just lift lid.

Tumblr Thread: Spy Kids Is A National Treasure

Many of us can fondly recall the ridiculous rollercoaster that was watching the various Spy Kids movies. You never really knew what you were going to get. Sometimes, you end up with George Clooney making a cameo, or you've got the national icon, Sylvester Stallone, dressed up as four different complete weirdos. Apparently, the star-studded cast can be attributed to the fact that Robert Rodriguez was such an infectiously enthusiastic filmmaker that people just loved to work with him. He also had a knack for shooting the movies in very short periods of time because so much of it was done on green screens.
