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.

Movie universes are much larger than the seven people we follow during the movie, but who the heck lives there and what are they up to? "Doctor" Jordan Breeding returns to deep dive into a few cinematic universes and ring in the new year the only way he knows how.

Tumblr's wandering minds are always down to lead us down wild rabbit holes with their compelling fan theories and astute observations. Recently, we were taken on quite the rollercoaster when it came to an analysis of "The Incredibles" by the Tumblr world that really spared no details. In this case though, we have a Tumblr thread that puts forth a solid case for why Violet Beauregarde was in fact robbed of a rightful victory, and should've been put in charge of Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory.

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? 

Tumblr users go all in on a conversation about The Incredibles | silverhawk honestly tho scene incredibles where mr. incredible sees names all old super heroes used be his friends he knew Back Day and every one them has been killed by syndrome is such chilling scene so many reasons like one, everyone he knew is dead at this point and has been killed on same island he's at now and two, its heartbreaking bc means almost every hero wanted try out being hero again despite laws against and wanted try

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.
