Things I’ve Learned From Movies

16 Jun

A list of things I’ve learned from watching a bunch of movies. 

■Large business owners  normally have a hidden agenda.  (They get even crazier when you start dating the person they had a previous relationship with).

■Authority figures never trust kids/teens.  

■All school classes are only around 5 minutes long.  

■All teenagers are really 25 year olds.  

The first Movie Robot**

■Vampires are NOT evil, bloodthirsty monsters. They sparkle in the sunlight and are really romantic because they are 100+ years old. (A random thought, will someone please make a new, GOOD vampire movie?)  

■It’s not bestiality if a human falls in love with a werewolf. They look like they are the same species, that’s all that matters.

■ It’s not pedophilia if an ancient vampire falls in love with a human teenager. They look the same age, that’s all that matters.

■A man and a woman will always end up together if they hate each other in the beginning.   

■Always cut the red wire to defuse a bomb. 

■If you have a bully problem, just find an old man who knows karate.  

■If you end up in a bad situation that could just be solved with an explanation, don’t give an explanation. 

■If you suddenly start singing and dancing, everyone else will know the same lyrics and steps. (This point also goes with the one below it)

■The nerdy kid will always ‘get with’ the popular or athletic boy/girl. 

■All cars explode when they are hit by another car, hit into a building, or fall off a cliff.  

■Don’t time travel… ever.  

■The bad guy will always reveal his plan right before he intends to kill the hero. 

■The bad guy always leave the room which gives the hero at least 10 minutes to escape. 

■A car never starts when you need it to.  

■The new kid in school always falls for the hottest girl/guy. 

■Computers can do anything. 

■You can knock someone out with just one punch. 

■Anyone who is knocked out with one punch will wake up and require more punches to subdue him/her again. 

■If you get a DeLorean up to 88 MPH crap happens.  

■Women become villains when they are jealous of the main female character or they want a man they can’t have.  

■Men become villains when they have a troubled past, are corrupt politician/business owners, or want a woman they can’t have.  


Your cookie prize! Wait... this is a kitten. Oh well, you can still have it*

Most of these points refer to a specific movie. You get a picture of a cookie if you can figure out what movies I’m referring to.


A new, better post coming soon. I’ve been busy being lazy. It’s a hard job that’s not for everyone.  

[EDIT] Oh, and I just became aware that a list on the same topic is going across the internet. I wrote every word in the list above, no copy and paste. 😉  [/EDIT]

      Great! You’ve earned a free kitty cookie.

      Please note, I don’t think it’s legal to eat cats.

    Oh hollywood, such a fantasy life.
    Loved this list, I have actually thought about a lot of the things you stated, especially how “teenagers are 25.”

      I thinking of 1990’s sitcoms when I wrote that one. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a ‘teenager’ that was actually a teenager in those shows.
