The Entirely Arbitrary but Painfully Obvious Life Lessons of Film

COLLAGE 2

Here at Popcornography we feel it is important to teach. Often cinematic wisdom goes unnoticed or overlooked and it makes me sad.

With that said, Popcornography introduces its latest and most enlightening category – The Entirely Arbitrary but Painfully Obvious Life Lessons of Film. It is thus, with great pleasure, that Popcornography presents 15 lessons that may have been overlooked when watching some of these classic  films. I made a list. I love lists. Ahem;

1. Blair Witch Project

Don’t forget the tissues when you go camping. Nobody likes Mr Sniffles. Especially when taking distressed selfies with a camcorder.

2. Lion King

Always be wary of creepy and disfigured relatives.

3. Brokeback Mountain

Always be wary of your husband’s “fishing” buddies.

4. Beauty and the Beast

Rose maintenance can be difficult. Try soil and water.

5. Lord of the Rings Trilogy

Be wary of EXTENDED director’s cuts.  It will feel like YOU are taking the ring to Mordor.

6. Dark Knight

If you want to be taken seriously, remember to enunciate. Muzzled villains repeat after me; “How now brown cow”.

7. Star Wars

Never be afraid of over-the-top hats. Fabulous.

8. Scream

When indulging in flirtatious phone calls with strangers, remember to lock all doors. Drew forgot.

9. Twilight

Why are you even going to Kristen Stewart movies? Stop that.

10. Inception

This spinning top does not validate your intelligence. Does it fall? Does it continue spinning? No one cares.

11. Kill Bill

It’s rude to interrupt weddings. There will be consequences.

13. Dirty Dancing

Avoid painful/unnecessary surgeries. Jennifer Grey learnt this the hard way. Nose jobs put Baby in the corner.

14. Bridget Jone’s Diary

Never be caught in THAT pair of underwear.

15. Titanic

Never trust old people with your valuables.

Looper

So Popcornography realizes that it has been all about the psycho lately. For psycho posts click here, here or here. I am thus thrilled to bring to you the preview for what is sure to be one of the biggest blockbusters this summer. Looper is an American science-fiction action film that will just about be the most thrilling, smart and thought-provoking thing you can watch this December. And yes, we are certainly very excited.

Sexy Screenshots!

In our infinite wisdom (from the trailer), the plot revolves around angry mobsters in the future, assassination and time travel. I get the sneaky suspicion that this movie is going to provide some Inception-esque moments in terms of desperately trying to understand what the eff is going on. But it looks awesome nonetheless! Looper has an all-star cast including Bruce Willis (Die Hard, The Sixth Sense), Joseph Gordon Levitt (Inception, The Dark Knight Rises) as well as Emily Blunt (The Devil wears Prada, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen).

Let us break down why you should be excited with yet another Popcornography list. Ahem.

Number 1: Bruce Willis is well Bruce Willis and Emily Blunt is delightful.

Emily, why are you so dishevelled?

Number 2: Joseph Gordon-Levitt is the hottest new member of the Hollywood A-list and has an exceptional track record. Let’s not forget his superb performances in the latest installment of Vlermuisman (click here), 50/50 as well as Inception. He sure has come a long way since his 3rd Rock from the Sun days. For this we are glad.

Number 3: Now this deserves its own number on the list. And I can do that. It’s my blog. Joseph’s cute face has been changed for the entire film to sufficiently resemble his future counterpart; Bruce Willis. Interesting! I didn’t even recognize him in the trailer and only later did I realize what was happening. Is it wrong that I think he is better looking this way?

Joseph, why is your face weird?

Number 4: To date, Looper has received tons of critical acclaim and promises copious amounts of exciting and mind-bending sci-fi goodness. Doesn’t that just sound marvelous?

Number 5: Let’s be serious, time travel excites us all. Unless, it is via the medallion in Martin Lawrence’s Black Knight. That time travel didn’t excite anyone I am afraid.

Not cool

ANYWAY, get excited people because Looper is going to be the big thing this December.
