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

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

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

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.

Article 3 Crazy Movie Fan Theories That Just Might Be Right

By Andrew Bridgman / March 20, 2014

1. Was Andy's Mom Jessie's Original Owner?

Remember when Andy would play with Woody and dress up sorta like a cowboy himself? (Andy was a huge Deadwood fan) You probably remember that - what you may not remember is that his hat doesn't really look like Woody's at all. However, it does resemble someone's hat: Jessie's.

Article Theory Corner: Who is "The Winter Soldier?"

Theory Corner: Who is The Winter Soldier

With the upcoming release of Captain American: The Winter Soldier, rumors have been swirling about who is the titular seasonal soldier. He wears a mask, and his (or her!) identity has been a closely guarded secret that will no doubt have huge implications on the plot. We've done a little bit of research and have come up with a number of candidates for who could be The Winter Soldier.

It's important to note that literally no one on the internet has any idea who or what the Winter Soldier truly is, so odds are one of these theories are right.

 

1. Captain American (Split-Personality)

Theory Corner: Who is The Winter Soldier

Here's what we know about Captain American: he's a soldier (check!) and he was frozen for 70 years (aka WINTER!). And wouldn't that just be the ULTIMATE twist? Captain American simply couldn't cope with the culture shock of waking up in the modern world and his personality split in two - good guy Captain American and bad guy The Winter Soldier. How his hair got so long and how he manages to battle himself (as seen in the trailers) is a mystery. Maybe it's like Fight Club and it's revealed later on that he's just punching himself and looking like a goofy idiot.

Article The Most Insane FCC Complaints Against 'South Park'

By Andrew Bridgman / March 18, 2014

FCC Complaints Against South Park That Will ENRAGE YOU

The website Government Attic regularly posts government files and documents it receives through the Freedom of Information Act. While most of these are extremely dry and boring, occasionally something truly magnificent will show up. For example - a document was posted that collected complaints made to the FCC about South Park, between 2004 and 2007. We've transcribed some of the best ones (and tried our best to maintain accurate portrayals of the grammar and spelling used by each):

 


 

Two boys well known to me asked me for sex (unspecified in nature); when I asked these boys why they were asking me for sex, they replied that the TV program "South Park" with the randy "Chef" told them to do it. These boys are 9 and 12. I am 63 and male.


 

I wish to voice my disgust with the "cartoon" Southpark that was aired on the evening of Wednesday, August 10, 2005. The episode depicted children "milking" a male dog. I cannot believe such filth is allowed to be aired.
