7 Movies That Put Insane Detail into Stuff You Never Noticed

7 Movies That Put Insane Detail into Stuff You Never Noticed
We've mentioned before how film directors occasionally go a little bit crazy when it comes to certain minor details, including ones that 99 percent of the audience are never even going to see. A horrifying amount of time and work go into things that will be forever unnoticed by everyone except a few members of the crew. So let's again take a moment to appreciate the awesomely obsessive ... #7. For any sci-fi or fantasy film, it's one thing to make the clothing and equipment look authentic onscreen, and another to add layers of detail that are physically impossible to notice, even if each frame of the movie is examined with a magnifying glass. If Michael Bay had directed this film, all those Uruk-hai would be explosions, and Helm's Deep would be a pair of tits. What's that? KropserkelEven that codpiece is Orc-accurate. Well, that chain mail that you didn't notice, that you couldn't have noticed, was created by the costume department by hand, link by link ... CollectTolkien #6. #5. Also?

SAF to retire!! “My greatest challenge is not what’s happening at the moment, my greatest challenge was knocking Liverpool right off their perch.” Ferguson on his biggest achievement “At the end of this game, the European Cup will be only six feet away from you and you’ll not even able to touch it if we lose. And for many of you that will be the closest you will ever get. Don’t you dare come back in here without giving your all.” “I can’t believe it. “It would have been Sir Matt Busby's 90th birthday today, but I think he was up there doing a lot of kicking.” “The most important piece of advice he gave me was not to read the press, it was great advice and I have not read it since.” “It can be difficult to pinpoint who would make it as a manager. “They say he’s an intelligent man, right? “He was certainly full of it, calling me Boss and Big Man when we had our post-match drink after the first leg. “That lad must have been born offside.” “It was a freakish incident. "It's City isn't it?

5 Film Franchises Based on One Character's Stupid Decision Remember that flashback scene in The Lord of the Rings when Elrond and Isildur are right at the center of Mount Doom, and all Elrond needs to do to save Middle-earth from centuries of war is elf-kick that dipshit and his ring-coveting ass into the boiling lava of oblivion? Had he just done what everyone in the audience was screaming at him to do, the movies would have just been 10 hours of hobbits getting drunk. Well, this kind of thing happens all the time -- one poor decision leads to an entire film series worth of conflict. For instance ... #5. Christopher Nolan's Batman series begins in a Bhutanese prison, where Liam Neeson's Ra's Al Ghul (who apparently has a key) recruits Bruce Wayne to be trained as a member of the League of Shadows. Sadly, like anything good, there's always a catch -- and after Bruce's training is complete and he knows all of the League of Shadows' secrets, he finds himself being asked to execute a man in a show of loyalty. But hey -- free training, right? #4.

5 True Stories Cut from Movies for Being Too Unrealistic As we've repeatedly pointed out, in Hollywood the words "Based on a True Story" are usually just a code for "Vaguely Resembling a True Story, but Mostly Bullshit." Sometimes, the filmmakers feel like they have to lie and make up stuff to make the story more interesting -- but it turns out that other times, they actually have to cut stuff that really happened because it's all so awesome that no one would believe it. Here are some mind-blowing moments from real life that Hollywood decided were too fantastic, even for their movies. #5. Public Enemies -- John Dillinger Didn't Take Three People Hostage With a Wooden Gun ... He Took 17 The Scene: About halfway through Public Enemies, a biopic of Depression-era bank robber John Dillinger (played by Johnny Depp), Dillinger manages to break himself out of jail by whittling a chunk of wood into a shape resembling a pistol, painting it black with shoe polish and then taking three guards hostage as he raided their weapons stores. The Reality: #4. #3.

The 30 Best Films of the Decade - Page 3 of 3 10. Big Fish Painting the 1980s in black and white, Tim Burton made his mark on this decade by discovering primary colors. Every corner of imagination is explored here in a film that has made me cry every single time even after 15 viewings. 9. Most quotable movie of the decade number two, and the movie that was the precursor to the Judd Apatow/Adam McKay takeover of great comedy that followed. 8. It’s a fortunate thing in this art form that audiences often get to see a genius at his best. 7. Despite art being completely subjective, you are wrong if you don’t like this film. 6. Back in 2000, back in the 1970s, Cameron Crowe took us all on a journey across the country in a bus. 5. He was a simple oil man. 4. You can’t argue with the facts. 3. There are two types of people in this world – and I don’t use that cliche lightly: those who have never curled up in a weeping, inconsolable ball on the floor and those who have seen Dear Zachary. 2. 1. Admit it.

6 Movie Mysteries the Characters Should've Solved Way Sooner Secrets drive the plots of some of the best movies. Memories are erased, alibis are fashioned, characters are killed or imprisoned and Jedi knights are kept working on farms for far too long, all to keep us guessing, interested and watching. That being said, sometimes a secret is only as good as the writers' ability to cover huge gaps in logic -- gaps that, when you think about it, are so huge that you can drive a bus through them, such as how the hell no one figured out Bruce Wayne was Batman in the Dark Knight trilogy. #6. The Dark Truth Behind Robert's Magic Trick in The Prestige Robert Angier (Hugh Jackman) is a magician hell-bent on winning a battle of wits against a rival magician to see who can better perform a specific trick, because this is 19th century England and women would have sex with you for such a thing. "No syphilis and magic tricks? "I'M ALIVE! Perhaps because the greatest sin against nature is hiding your sin against nature. #5. #4. It sucks, but it makes sense, right?

42nd match: Pune Warriors v Chennai Susu Kings at Pune, Apr 30, 2013 It is not going to be cricket tonight, so let's not talk about cricket. Ladies, gentlemen and CSK fans/trolls, We welcome you today on this deeply sombre occasion where a bunch of wounded warriors will plunder a bunch of hapless chickens ruthlessly. The anticipation of the ruthlessness of this very act has already sent shivers across the society and various animal activist groups have already started protesting against this all over the world. Keeping in mind their suggestions, the warriors have finally decided to be gentle on the chickens, and pick out their feathers one by one. Now, the stadium - The greatest stadium in the world The teams: a) The Warriors are simply warriors, they need not be known by names b) Chickens - Who cares about the names of some broiler chickens, but this is what the poultry owner looks like We need not elaborate any further. Thanks for listening! P.S.

8 Movies Made Possible by Incompetent Background Characters People tend to be incompetent in movies -- that's how our heroes are able to make so many daring escapes. However, there are some movies whose entire plotlines depend on characters inexplicably forgetting hugely important details about their professions and making glaring procedural errors in the jobs they supposedly do every single day. #8. In Die Hard 2: Die Harder (that subtitle must never be ignored or forgotten), Dulles International Airport gets taken over by a ruthless former colonel who specializes in naked karate. "Hey, how can we let the audience know this guy's crazy in just a single image?" Dozens of inbound flights carrying thousands of passengers are forced to circle in an endless holding pattern, and unless his demands are met, Colonel Karateboner will use the hijacked systems at Dulles to either trick the planes into crashing or keep them in the air until they run out of fuel and nosedive into oblivion. Or until the pilots just fly to another airport. #7. "Y'know what? #6.
