Look, who said that every film director, screenwriter, every producer, all the managers and staff members think through all the little and more obvious details when making a movie? Well, nobody actually promised that, but it’s sort of a no-brainer.

The reality is often different, though. Take The Dark Knight, Avengers, Home Alone, The Return of the Jedi and many of our other all-time favorite films, scroll through this online Reddit community, and face the fact that far from everything there is picture perfect, let alone makes sense.

So today we’re diving into the worst, cringiest, most illogical, and ‘what on earth were they thinkin’’-kind of movie details that give the words ‘bad’ and ‘not smart’ a whole new meaning. Psst! Part 1 awaits right here around the corner!

Also, she doesn't get paid fairly for her effort, and you never see her go to the toilet while working, just like Amazon workers.

Previously, Bored Panda reached out to the moderator team of the subreddit to which we are thankful for this awesome compilation. The subreddit created on July 6, 2017 was born because the top mod “saw an opening in the market,” commented Merari01.

"People on reddit love making silly jokes and puns,” they said and added: “There's lots of in-jokes and running gags and that makes a good breeding ground for playfully memeing in the context of movies," which contributed to the sub’s success.

Tbf, in Bruce Wayne's case he was only eight when his parents were murdered. Do you expect every (rich) eight year old and younger to care about a noble cause?

However, it turns out that many people don’t notice the sarcasm and take the posts on the subreddit seriously. But, “it’s part of the fun,” Merari01 laughed.Today, the community has a solid 627k members willing to share the crappiest moments and cringy details they spot in some of the best movies.

It’s worth mentioning that the sub also serves as an antidote to another hugely popular subreddit known as r/moviedetails with 2.5M members. We previously wrote about this community here, here and here. Contrary to the subreddit that posts only the crappiest details from movies, r/moviedetails is a serious treasure box for anyone into cinema. It features some of the most intriguing, surprising, and smart little details and Easter eggs.

So in order to find out how even the most loyal film watchers miss some of these Easter eggs and what’s the significance behind them, we spoke with Lisa Yaszek, a Regents Professor of Science Fiction Studies at Georgia Tech, where she researches and teaches science fiction as a global language crossing centuries, continents, and cultures.

“Even the most loyal film watchers miss some Easter eggs because directors know that the hunt is half the fun! The more you rewatch a film, the more you’ll see and appreciate all the hard, detailed labor that goes into it.

”The professor said that she, for example, has watched the Alien films a million times. Moreover, she teaches gender studies, “so you’d think I’d be the perfect person to catch the reference to Alien in Aliens—especially since it appears in a file about one character’s gendered medical history! But I never noticed it until now—and it makes me want to go back to see if there are any other cool references or connections in similar scenes.”

“Also, even if filmmakers wanted to make things a little easier for fans, I don’t think they could create a product where everyone was guaranteed to find every surprise. The world of each film—and really, the world we live in every day—is incredibly detailed, and different people tend to notice different things, based on a combination of personal traits: some people have a gift for recognizing faces and so would be most likely to catch the Easter eggs in films like Star Wars films in which cast and crew family members take walk-on roles, while others who are better at remembering images might be the first or even only ones to catch that certain items are passed down through families in Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings series.”

But Lisa said that’s part of what makes Easter egg hunting in films so fun: “it’s a community process! Even if we watch films on our own personal devices, sooner or later we’re likely to connect with others who have also watched those films, and then we have the pleasure of comparing notes and working together to find even more,” the professor concluded.

They're not that far off actually. A bit of a logical leap but you can say that stretching represents water since he's fairly "liquid" and invisibility represent air since you don't really see it.
