Tumblr Uncovers the Nine Types of Movie Posters

We know that big movie studios stick to classic money making formulas, and that can lead to bland, predictable movies. But it looks like it's way worse when it comes to advertising for those movies. It's interesting, but a little disheartening seeing how predictable human behavior is, especially when it comes to entertainment. It's like they said, you can't unsee it. If anyone thought this was enough, Tumblr went hard analyzing The Incredibles to oblivion. Tumblr has a thing for analyzing movies, like this hyper analysis of Davy Jones in Pirates of the Caribbean. Here's a tumblr user who ranked the marvel movies based on how many trains were in them, and here's tumblr's dicussion of the visual affects of Jurassic Park.

Biggest Plot Holes That Haunt People

Oh boy, buckle on up for some gaping plot holes. So many of us have been consumed by an unmistakable plot hole in a movie or book that we love at one point or another. It's like the writers just got a little bit lazy when it came to making sure that all the loose ends were tied off, or maybe they missed the plot hole altogether. Some of these are sure to strike a chord.

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 Thread: The World's Greatest Tropes

The verdict is in on this quick and entertaining Tumblr thread about the world's greatest tropes, and these apparently absolutely fit the bill. You've just got to love those moments in movies where characters provide flashbacks but said flashbacks involve all the other characters speaking in their actual voices, but also matching the actual cadence and vocabulary of the character telling the story. Also, the rumor is that basically all of these occurred in the "Road to El Dorado."

What are the mutant historians like in 'Logan' or the NYC attack truthers in 'Ghostbusters' or the true-crime enthusiasts in 'The Terminator'? 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 Thread: Violet Beauregarde Should've Won Willy Wonka's Factory

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 thread argues that Violet Beauregarde should've won Willy Wonka's Chocolate factory. | evayna Violet Beauregarde should've won Wonka's chocolate factory Have watched movie last decade or more?

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

Have you ever thought it strange that Marty McFly's grandparents left him unconscious for nine hours in BACK TO THE FUTURE? How about God's willingness to let BRUCE become ALMIGHTY?

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. Also, if there's ribbon wrapped around ribbon's not taped on and slides right off. Has anyone ever done this real life

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.

What would happen if Jack and Rose swapped genders in 'Titanic'? What about if 'The Shape of Water' starred a lonely male janitor going to town on a lady fish? What if Marty's Mom in 'Back to the Future' was a peeping... Jane?

As far as Frankenstein'd-together movies, you could do a whole lot worse than a mashup of The Hobbit and Fury Road. To be fair, they're both about unpredictable journeys in dangerous lands populated by mad kings and deep-voiced semi-human monsters, so why not. Extra points for Legolas' dexterity.

Our friends at Cracked are back at it again with some pure comedy gold. It's probably too dangerous to go see Christopher Nolan's "Tenet" in theaters right now, so we went ahead and remade the movie for, like, $20. You can now safely watch "Tenet" from the comfort of your beanbag chair. You don't even have to wear pants!
