7 Inconsequentially Cool Things From Movies That Took Way Too Long To Film

There are thousands of awesome movie moments out there that are a result of a last minute change or improvisation. This is not a list of those things - this is a list of moments from movies that although pretty cool, took so long to film or include you kind of wonder why they didn't just say, "Eh, screw it, lets think of something else."

 

1. The blood drop scene in The Incredible Hulk took a year to get right

As fantastic as that shot of a single drop of Bruce Banner's, radiation-filled vein gravy bobbing and weaving through a random factory in Brazil was, I'm pretty sure the movie would have still gotten the overwhelmingly average response it ended up receiving if it wasn't included. It may have even gotten a better response because without it we'd have seen the Hulk punch something like 10 seconds sooner.

For some reason though, the company behind that shot, Image Engine, spent upwards of a year tweaking that scene to get it just right. Now I'm no expert on making movies, but I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest that if Image engine had spent the budget and time that, that scene ended up consuming on something else, like maybe the Hulk kicking Abomination in the sack, the audience would have appreciated it more than an artistic shot of a drop of blood in freefall.

 5 Crazy Fan Theories That Make Total Sense

 

1. Vault Boy Isn't Giving a Thumbs Up - He's Checking Whether Or Not He's About To Die

5 Crazy Fan Theories That Make Total Sense

The chipper, cheery mascot of the Fallout series has always been Vault Boy, the blonde-haired, bright-smiled lad giving a big thumbs up and a delightful wink, in stark contrast to the horrible post-nuclear war dystopian future the game plops you in. But WHY exactly is he giving you a thumbs up? And is there an explanation for what he's doing that makes more sense than a jokey contrast between retro-optimism vs. current misery? As you can probably tell from the tone of the article so far, there totally is.

Article 5 Theories About 'Game of Thrones' That Are Totally Right

By Andrew Bridgman / March 26, 2014

Theory Corner: Game of Thrones  

 

Few TV shows inspire the passionate debating and theorizing as Game of Thrones - and as someone who's seen the first 40 minutes of the pilot, I can see why! There are so many characters and relationships and locations to keep track of. And with the new season premiering soon, I thought I might share some of my most well-thought out theories with you. Enjoy!

 

1. I think Joffrey might be the child of Cersei and HER BROTHER!

Theory Corner: Game of Thrones

Okay, I know this seems a little out there, but hear me out: we know Cersei and her brother have some kind of "VERY SPECIAL" relationship, we know that everyone in the Lannister family is blonde, AND we know that both Joffrey and Tyrion are like pretty close to the same height. Coincidence? Methinks NOT!

In other words, Cersei and Tyrion have definitely been boning. They should call this show Game of Bones! (because, seriously, there's a lot of sex AND like skeleton bones laying around)

Article 4 Shows You Can Marathon To Fill the Breaking Bad-Sized Hole In Your Heart

  4 Shows You Can Marathon To Fill the Breaking BadSized Hole In Your Heart

With no Breaking Bad to look forward to in 2014 (although the Better Call Saul spinoff might count), people are looking for another show to give them the same adrenaline rush that only the tragic tale of Walter White could provide. Luckily, we have some recommendations for shows you can watch that can almost fill the Breaking Bad-sized hole in your heart. 

 

1. The Shield

  4 Shows You Can Marathon To Fill the Breaking BadSized Hole In Your Heart

Similarities:

  • Morally-complex anti-hero protagonist with a shaved head who is a destructive force in the lives of everyone close to him

  • Good mix between nail-biting, tension-filled drama and comedy

  • SO MANY GREAT TWISTS

  • Also: DRUGS DRUGS DRUGS

  • Just the closest thing out there to Breaking Bad.

 

Differences:

  • Has a better ending. THAT'S RIGHT, THE ENDING IS BETTER.

  • Main character pretty much starts off in Evil-Walt mode instead of gradually moving there

  • Somehow gets darker than Breaking Bad ever got (and Breaking Bad had child-poisoning) - cats are strangled for no reason, there are brutal sexual assaults, and...the ending. Oh man, the ending.

Article The 5 Most Embarrassing Moments in Batman Comic History

  The 5 Most Embarrassing Moments in Batman Comic History

One of the best parts about Batman is also his greatest weakness: he's only human, and therefore susceptible to looking as stupid and idiotic as the rest of us. Most people are all too familiar with his brush with bat-nipples and his shark-repellant phase. His deepest and darkest secrets, however, are buried deep within his comics origins. Below are five truly embarrassing moments from a man who is not afraid to wear underwear over his pants.

 

5. The Caped Crusader Croons Christmas Carols with Cops

Batmans 5 Most Embarrassing Moments

Batman's true religion is justice, which never takes a holiday. But stalking the streets 365 days a year means that, at some point, tinsel and holly will briefly impede crime fighting before they are used as improvisational restraints following righteous beatings. Christmas typically brings  Mr. Freeze or some gimmicky dickweed like Calendar Man out of the woodwork, going balls-out in hopes of destroying the pagan tradition turned-Christian holiday turned-annual Walmart sacrificial stampede ritual. In Batman #219, the GCPD somehow convinces the world's greatest detective to blow off his endless neighborhood watch and belt out a few ballads. They sing for a while, and for a brief moment Batman believes that Christmas is something else other than a reminder that his dead parents aren't getting him any presents. Just when the yuletide couldn't get any cheerier, our hero has a shocking realization...
