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.

Activities That Look Fun In Movies But Are Actually Terrible

Movies have a way of making being a struggling business owner seem folksy when in reality it's a whole lot of paperwork and barely paid bills. Movies make fights look like great stands for justice when most often they're a great opportunity to break your hands, even if you win. Movie logic is unrealistic. Maybe that's why we like them. But that said, there are still things movies do that people hate.

Twitter Thread: People Ruin Movies With One Word

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

Few of us wanted to live-out many of the scenes of Dumb and Dumber, but if Harry and Lloyd could make it to Aspen on this "hog," these guys thought they could to. Spines and mini-bikes weren't built for this. A few tire changes and a brake adjustment later and they made it to aspen on about 7 gallons of gas. It's surprisingly wholesome, especially since they didn't kill a man in a diner or give a blind kid a dead bird.

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.

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.

Movies That Would Be Way Shorter If Characters Were Reasonable

We get it, most movies need a central conceit in order to make the plot actually work. No one is saying that every movie should end in five minutes with a phone call or the decision to "not stay at the creepy mansion." What gets frustrating is having to watch a bunch of movies that only work because the characters involved are unbelievably dumb. It's kind of like these unrealistic movie details that will never stop being annoying.

Unrealistic Movie Details That Won't Stop Being Annoying

Sure, movies don't have the time to account for literally every plot-independent detail in a character's life. Plus, a 10-hour movie where the main character spends half their time in traffic and on the toilet wouldn't be fun to watch. Probably. But there are too many flagrant and obviously unrealistic movie moments that never get corrected. For some more movie dumbness, here's tumblr uncovering the nine types of movie posters.
