The Entirely Arbitrary but Painfully Obvious Life Lessons of Film


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.

12. Se7en

Sometimes postal service will let you down. Chin up!

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.



Kill Bill: Vol. 1

Ah, I have always been a Tarantino fan. Kill Bill, in particular, is highly admired here at Popcornography. Uma Thurman sure is an angry one. Uma’s character, “The Bride”, is a former assassin who seeks revenge on her ex-colleagues after they attempt to kill her and massacre her wedding party on her big day’s rehearsal. Eish. That’s unfortunate. Uma manages to survive and the film follows her as she exacts her brutal revenge. And she SURE does get revenge on those who betray her. Heavens. This film, although graphic and at times unsettling, manages to remain fun and pays homage to the martial arts and western film genres whilst being directed with awe-inspiring style. As enjoyable as Uma is, Lucy Liu is amazing as O-Ren Ishii and her back story is explained through a very interesting anime sequence. Not to be missed!

Additionally, the entire marketing campaign for the film focuses around the bright yellow jump suit that “The Bride” wears while slaughtering her enemies with Hattori Hanzo steel.

Bloody, stylized, exciting, captivating and ridiculously funny. Kill Bill is just grand. I love it so much, I still have the poster in my room. True story.
