73 Details From Your Favorite Movies Hidden In Plain Sight

Published

on

Sometimes, when we watch the movie for the first time, we mainly focus on the characters; thus, we fail to notice the tiny interesting details added in the film – intentional or not. Therefore, if you watch a movie for the second or third time, you might be able to uncover easter eggs, or even laugh at the cheeky references you have never understood the first time.

But if you need a little help on where to start, here are 73 incredible details that you probably never noticed in your favorite flick.

1) American Beauty 20 Years Later

American Beauty is a creepy film about a middle-aged guy who lusts after his daughter’s underage best friend, but it gets even creepier when you look back at it with 20/20 hindsight.

The scene depicted below is supposed to represent Lester’s feelings about his dead-end job and feelings of imprisonment. However, given Kevin Spacey’s fall from grace, those digital prison bars symbolize more than just a scene from a movie!

2) The Candles In Lord Of The Rings

When Gandalf goes off on his mission in Lord of the Rings to find out the truth about Frodo’s ring, the candles help mark the passage of time. You can see how they’ve melted down considerably compared to when Gandolf first started reading through the scrolls.

3) The Shawshank Redemption

In The Shawshank Redemption, Morgan Freeman’s real-life son played a minor role in the film. His face was used as the mugshot for a younger 20-year-old version of Morgan’s character, Red.

4) Wes Craven “Screams” At Santa Rosa

The end credits are usually a place where shout outs and thanks are given to everyone who made the movie possible. But, director Wes Craven took a different approach with his campy horror flick, Scream.

He left a message that said, “No Thanks Whatsoever to the Santa Rosa City School District Governing Board.” It was in reference to the board revoking a verbal agreement that would have allowed him to film at Santa Rosa High School.

5) Poltergeist Just Got Scarier

Remember that scene where actress JoBeth Williams splashed around with a bunch of skeletons in the pool? Turns out those skeletons were real, only she didn’t know it at the time. Apparently, it was cheaper to source real skeletons from a medical supply company than to make fake ones.

7) Sid The Sloth Was A Robot

Sid the sloth first captured everyone’s hearts with his goofy ways in the Ice Age movie franchise. He certainly captured the hearts of the movie’s creators, who paid homage to the character by creating a robot version of him in 2005’s Robots.

8) Team America

When the makers of South Park teamed up to make Team America: World Police, the cheeky satire was anything but politically correct. But, the cobblestone streets in Paris were pretty funny – they were made of croissants!

9) Pennywise Plays Peek-A-Boo

You know that annoying FBI anti-piracy warning that’s shown at the beginning of every home DVD movie? We’ve seen it so many times by now that we tend to gloss over it. This is why you may have missed how Fight Club hijacked that screen with a much tougher WARNING…from Tyler.

13) Titanic’s Timely Demise

The next time you watch Titanic, pay attention to the clock at the end of the movie. It says 2:20, which is exactly when the sink sank.

@Gentle_Master:

“Another interesting fact about the movie is that the whole scene in which Titanic collided with the iceberg lasted 37 seconds which is how long the collision was in real life. Also, the entirety of the movie set in 1912 lasted 2 hours and 40 minutes which is how long Titanic took to sink after it struck the iceberg. The remainder of time in the movie was present day and the credits.”

48) Crimes Against The Galaxy

In Guardians of the Galaxy, each of the stripes on the prison outfits represents a crime they’ve been convicted of. However, James Gunn says rumors of that Rocket got caught for “indecent exposure” is untrue. On his Facebook page, the director lists these crimes against the galaxy:

“Rocket’s are mercenary activity, grievous bodily harm, arson (he blows up a lot of stuff), escape from prison, and, I believe, public drunkenness.

Quill’s crimes are penny-ante robbery, grift, criminal conspiracy (from his gang involvement with the Ravagers), and having sex with members of a royal family (consensual but on some planets considered an outrageous crime for someone from his caste).

Gamora keeps things simple with her long list of murders and assassinations, all at the behest of Thanos.

And Drax’s crimes are grievous bodily harm, murder, and every variety of destroying stuff you can imagine.”

75 Comparison Images That Cause A Double Take

It’s amazing what you’ll notice when you open your eyes and view the world from a different perspective. That’s what these people found out. Their comparison photos examining the differences and similarities between things will blow your mind.

By looking at two items beside one another, they made some pretty fascinating realizations. Sometimes, it has to do with landscape changes across different seasons. Other times, it is related to people. For example, the mom who matched her face up with her daughter’s and realized that they were pretty much identical twins.

In the moment, one might never notice these sorts of things, but viewing the photos side by side helps to provide contrast and prime our minds for new realizations. Once you see the images for yourself, you’ll understand what we mean.

Dad Brings Laughter With Tutorial On How To Put Baby To Sleep

Published

on

He’s a husband and father first, but he’s also a funny comedy video creator. This New Zealand dad creates entertaining videos that get lots of hits because they’re downright hilarious. Jordan Watson shares parenting tips and tricks on his youtube page, with a great tongue in cheek style, that other dads (or anyone who takes care of kids) can relate to. Each video has his comedic sense of humor with a deadpan delivery, as he parodies the “how-to” videos that are popular on the internet.

Source: Youtube Screenshot

Jordan Watson, from Aukland, New Zealand is a part-time landscaper, full-time dad, and viral video creator.

His first video was just a goof he put together when he was left alone with his baby, Alba. The video is titled, “How to Hold a Baby” and is currently at 3.7 million views. And that’s not even his most-watched video.

In an interview with Stuff, Watson still can’t believe the video went viral overnight,

“It was just me cutting together, in my eyes, crap – just me being an idiot and thinking that one guy at work’s going to like it.”

Source: Youtube Screenshot

He chalks his success up to,

“Every parent can kind of relate, and there’s so many people out there who’re aunties, uncles, they look after people’s kids… It’s just everyday scenarios with kids which has given me the inspiration for it.”

Jordan always wears his trademark shirt and shorts or as they’re called in New Zealand, Togs.

In this video, which currently has over four million views, Jordan offers his own witty advice on how to put a baby to sleep. He lists and demonstrates a number of techniques, all with a deadpan delivery that only Jordan can muster.

Some examples are “The Hypnotist,” where dad dangles a nearby toy in front of the baby and coaxes her to sleep.

Source: Youtube Screenshot

Another good one is called “The Bribe Dad.” Where dad bribes the baby to go to sleep with, “tomorrow I’ll let you climb the curtains.”

Source: Youtube Screenshot

There’s, “Method Acting,” where dad pretends to be sleepy himself, and lays on the floor in order to convince the baby to sleep, too.

Source: Youtube Screenshot

“The Dad That Doesn’t Know A Single Lullaby,” where Jordan mumbles and mishmashes his way through what might sound similar to some known Lullabies.

Source: Youtube Screenshot

The funny thing about this video is that the real star is not Jordan.

No, it’s his baby daughter, Alba. She is such an integral part of the humor, because nearly every time Dad tries his methods, they work. The little one lays down to go to sleep, and her comedic timing is perfect. Dad administers the technique, Alba listens, and then to our rousing laughter, she complies. Leaving Jordan to say,

“It’s never really that easy.”

In Stuff, Jordan had this to say about his daughter,

“I think if you take Alba the cute baby out of it, they’re not going to do very well – it’s definitely 99 percent her, 1 percent me.”

Source: Youtube Screenshot

Many Youtubers are head over heels for this video, and it’s stars.

“How the baby could understand that he is acting?”

“This child should be the highest paid child actor!”

Another Youtuber wonders,

“I don’t know if that baby is just insanely intelligent, an animatronic, a paid actor or if the dad just really knows his stuff?”

Source: Youtube Screenshot

Get ready to laugh with this video. And prepare to go down the rabbit hole as “How To Dad,” Jordan Watson, has an ever-growing collection of funny videos. He feeds his followers a video a week, and probably feeds his charming family with the proceeds.

All in, he’s a really great husband and father, enjoy his funny “how-to” below!

Restaurant Adds Cute Stuffed Pandas To Help Customers During Social Distancing

Published

on

The past couple of months have been tough.

Health concerns, loss of income, and not being able to socialize has been extremely frustrating.

We are social creatures after all and it is in our nature to want to spend time with one another.

Source: Pexels

I personally live with four other roommates, so getting my fill of social connection hasn’t been too hard.

But I know many people who live alone and haven’t interacted with anyone in quite a while–and it’s starting to take its toll.

Even with four people in my house, I’m still itching for some social interaction with others.

Luckily, restrictions around COVID-19 are starting to lighten up.

Although many stores and restaurants are still closed, we are starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel for this whole quarantine business.

But things are still far from normal.

Even if stores are open, you’re still required to wear a mask and keep the recommended six-foot distance from everyone else.

So when one restaurant in Thailand opened its doors for the first time in months, they had some obstacles to overcome.

Maison Saigon, a Vietnamese restaurant in Bangkok, originally planned on having only one chair at each table to promote social distancing according to Insider.

But that just wasn’t cutting it.

When the owner, Natthwut Rodchanapanthkul, saw what the restaurant looked like with only one chair per table, he wasn’t satisfied.

He told reports at Reuters, “Earlier we had only one chair for the tables where the customer came alone. But for me, it felt strange, so I thought I’d give them some company.”

But how do you give someone company at a table when you aren’t supposed to be anywhere near each other?

By bringing in big stuffed pandas of course!

Source: Maison Saigon

The owner placed stuffed panda bears in various chairs around the restaurant to give it a more cheery and inviting vibe.

It also helped reinforce the social distancing rule according to Bored Panda.

And it worked great.

One customer told Reuters, “The doll makes me feel less lonely eating by myself.”

Another customer explained that the stuffed animals not only improved the vibe of the place, but it made seating arrangements more clear as well.

He told reporters, “It’s a lot easier to understand compared to other restaurants where people always get confused about where to sit and end up sitting too close to each other.”

Source: Maison Saigon

Now is the time when we need to get creative about the way that we do things.

Sure the owner of Maison Saigon could have just put up a bunch of signs that told people where they could and could not sit.

But how lame would that have been?

Nothing makes tough times harder than boring rules and stiff regulations.

It takes a little fun to shake things up!

And having a meal next to a giant, cuddly, cute stuffed panda sure does lighten the mood a bit.

Source: Maison Saigon

So if you happen to be stuck at home by yourself right now, maybe give this stuffed animal trick a try.

Put a few on your couch, a couple at the dinner table, and maybe even one out on the deck.

Whatever it takes to get through this isolation period with a little bit of sanity is worth it.

And don’t be too surprised if you find that one small panda goes a long way.
