Movie buffs pride themselves on being able to pick up on the tiniest details and most well-obscured Easter eggs in a film, noticing things that would take most mortals multiple viewings. But what about those extremely obvious details that everybody notices? What about the Easter eggs that are splattered all over our faces? What about those movie facts that are just plain wrong? What about those film interpretations that are wildly off-base?
This is an appreciation post for all the non-buffs, the cine-illiterate, the people in the front row going “dur…dur…dur.”
These are movie facts either so dumb, so glaringly obvious, or so entirely incorrect that they would make Roger Ebert himself vomit with rage.
