During one scene in JAWS 2 the teens’ fear and cries of shark were real, as they were being circled by a 15-foot shark. The production crew at a distance thought they were acting and just gave them a thumbs up.
Below are 15 movies that are so “universally” loved that the people who hate them are afraid to say so for fear of similar reprisal.
#1. A live action Fern Gully.
It’s a live action Fern Gully.”
#2. Remnants continue to resurface.
“Frozen. Watched it once, thought “eh Disney” and 6 years later remnants of it still continue to surface”
#3. Just a love letter to musicals of the past.
“La La Land. It was just a love letter to musicals of the past. Well-done, but not groundbreaking or particularly memorable in and of itself. All of my friends who had never really seen musicals went crazy for it and I couldn’t stand hearing the songs from it played.”
#4. It should have been offensive.
“Ready Player One was horrendous and should have been offensive to anyone who’s ever played a video game, something which Spielberg has clearly never done.”
#5. Mind-numbingly boring.
“”Lincoln” was a mind-numbingly boring movie that’s “highlights” were Daniel Day-Lewis being Daniel Day-Lewis with a fake beard. I majored in Political Science (pro-tip: DON’T). I knew what was going on and the maneuverings that were happening and etc. Did not change the fact that it was an insanely boring movie.
#6. So bad it’s good.
“The Room is incredible because it tried so earnestly to be an excellent film and flopped spectacularly. Movies like Sharknado are boring (to me) because they try so hard to be quirky. Huge difference.”
#7. I secretly want the dinosaurs to win.
“Jurassic World. I don’t get how it became so popular. I secretly want the dinosaurs to win and eat all the main characters.”
#8. Considering divorce.
“My wife hates Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Wondering if I should be considering divorce.”
#9. Just a cool premise.
“Bird Box. It really seems like someone thought up the cool premise and then they tried to force a script into it. Although i gotta say, the scene with the parking sensors in the car was super cool.”
#10. Can’t watch it.
“Anything that’s “so bad that it’s good”.
I can’t watch that shit.”
#11. A reason to get Sandra Bullock in her skimpies.
“Fucking Gravity. I hated that movie. I work for an aerospace firm that makes stuff for the ISS. That movie felt like a reason to get Sandra Bullock in her skimpies. Space isn’t sexy. Space is full of a rats nest of cables and 30 year old equipment that’s miraculously being kept on life support by an extremely dedicated group of engineers.
That, and what the fuck was satellite debris doing in the same orbit as the ISS?”
#12. Immature and obnoxious.
“Sausage Party, all critics liked it because it had “meaning” but I thought it was an inmature and obnoxious experience.”
#13. The first three movies suck.
The Hunger Games is probably my favorite book series, but the first three movies suck. I didn’t watch the last one.
Edit: First Silver! Yay!
Edit 2: I’m going to look for the Battle Royale books! :)”
#14. I’m not afraid.
“I’m not afraid to clearly state my opinion of anything
I don’t like any of the current crop of action movies”
#15. I don’t get what’s so romantic.
“The notebook. I don’t get what’s so romantic about a guy hanging on a ferris wheel to make you go on a date with him. That’s basically blackmailing.”
Just be honest – you just might find your tribe in the process!

Back in the days of handpainted animation, filmmakers just had to do their best to keep every frame consistent with the last. If there was the occasional mistake, they probably just figured it would be small enough to go unnoticed.
These 15 tiny mistakes are all in Disney’s The Little Mermaid. Fair warning, though – after you read this post you won’t be able to unsee them!
#1. Ariel is crying on a rock next to a piece of broken wood and a broken vase. But in the wide shot, everything is different – even the rock formation.
#2. Max’s paws are white…except that one time they’re gray.
#3. When Ariel meets Max, he licks the right side of her face, but she wipes the slobber off of the left side.
#4. This porthole changes from the time Scuttle lands on it to when he flies away.
#5. The perfume bottle Vanessa steps on and breaks wasn’t on her vanity in the wide shot.
#6. The handles on the plate covers change between the closeup and wide shots.
#7. When Ariel first sees the “dinglehopper” it has four tines, but only three after she picks it up.
#8. When Ariel swims out to stop the wedding and climbs onto the ship, she’s shoeless – but when she gets her voice back a moment later, she’s wearing shoes.
#9. During Eric and Ariel’s date, her hair is half-up, half-down, but her shadow in the water reflects a ponytail.
#10. Sebastian is thrown into a brown sauce…that somehow turns white by the next shot.
#11. When Flounder gets stuck in the pothole, his fins are stuck on the outside and the inside, somehow.
#12. King Triton blows up the Eric statue in the grotto, and we see the cracks and lines going through the entire thing…but somehow his face is intact?
#13. King Triton’s crown has 5 peaks while he’s wearing it, but 7 after she turns him into that shriveled little sad thing.
#14. The bookmarks in the priest’s bible change colors.
#15. Gold buckles appear on Chef Louie’s shoes halfway through his song and dance number.
One thing is still true – The Little Mermaid has the best songs (and the hottest prince).
The post 15 Animation Mistakes in ‘The Little Mermaid’ That Most People Miss appeared first on UberFacts.
“Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom” was originally planned to start with Indie riding a motorcycle on the Great Wall of China, followed by the discovery of a “Lost World” type of hidden valley with dinosaurs. The idea was scrapped when the Chinese government refused to let them film there.
George Lucas was fined $250,000 and “The Empire Strikes Back” was nearly pulled from theatres because he put screen credits at the end of the movie (which was rare) to preserve the dramatic opening sequences.
During the space race, Stanley Kubrick was so worried that humans would soon make first contact with aliens that he tried to buy an insurance policy for 2001: A Space Odyssey in case audiences found his depiction of aliens ridiculous.
In his famous scene in ‘The Shining’, the crew made a fake door for Jack Nicholson to break through, but had to replace it with a real door as the fake one broke too quickly due to Jack previously being a Fire Marshall.
In The Shining, Stanley Kubrick intentionally isolated Shelley Duvall and argued with her often. Duvall was forced to perform the iconic and exhausting baseball bat scene 127 times. Afterwards, Duvall presented Kubrick with clumps of hair that had fallen out due to the extreme stress of filming.
In 1975 Al Pacino was offered the role of Han Solo in the film Star Wars, but he refused the role because “The script was too confusing”.
40 years before James Cameron’s “Avatar” was released, the “Noon Universe” Russian sci-fi novels were published, set on a forest planet called Pandora in the 22nd century, inhabited by humanoids called Nave (compared to the “Na’vi” in Avatar).
