Banker Quits His Job, Dresses as Spider-Man on His Last Day

Over the years, a lot of famous actors have donned the red-and-blue tights of Spider-Man to thrill movie audiences around the world. While they’ve all been (mostly) great, I’d argue that this anonymous bank worker from Sao Paolo, Brazil, might have worn the outfit best.

He decided to slip into the spandex on his last day of work, and naturally, hilarity ensued.

Is it good or bad that he worked in the analysis department of a bank and therefore saw no customers in “uniform?”

I suppose it depends on who you ask.

His fellow employees obviously enjoyed the prank, and one of them Instagrammed the picture-perfect moment saying: “Last day of work and this person is driving the boss mad.”

Overall, everyone else was pleased he decided to show up for his last day in full Spiderman regalia. Especially since he handed out candy as part of his schtick — which perhaps makes him the best Spider-Man ever.

If you’re leaving your job and have no need of a recommendation or referral in the future, then, I mean, why not go out with a bang?

Or a web?

I, for one, salute you, sir. I just hope there were no encounters with actual radioactive spiders to make this day possible.

“Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom”…

“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…

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…

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 The Shining, Stanley Kubrick…

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.

15 Film and TV Fans Rank The Saddest Scenes of All Time

“Sad” is, of course, a pretty subjective term. It could mean a lot of different things to different people. Still, there are some things that just about everyone can agree are sad.

Today, we’ll be checking out what scences 15 film and television buffs found to be especially heart-wrenching.

#1. When somebody loved me…

“Jesse’s flashback in Toy Story 2. It fucked me up then and it fucks me up now.”

#2. Classic.

“When Jesse finds out that Leslie died in Bridge to Terabithia.”

#3. Fresh Prince

“In Fresh Prince when Will’s deadbeat father runs out on him yet again after a brief reunion and after he explains to Uncle Phil how he didn’t need his father to be the man he became, Will tearfully asks “how he come he don’t want me?”

Such a powerful scene. I feel such strong emotions every time I watch it.”

#4. Ugh, death.

“When the wife dies in Up. The end of Stepmom when she’s giving her children the gifts.”

#5. I’m tired, boss…

“The Green Mile when they had to put the big fella down 😢

#6. Serenity

“I’m a leaf on the wind. Watch how…”

“Wash aint comin…”

#7. Baby Simba.

“Mufasa dying. I’ve seen The Lion King soo many times but I still tear up everytime I see young Simba trying to wake up his father.”

#8. Not in polite company.

“Buffy- the Body. Still can’t watch that episode with polite company around. It’s the “Mommy?” that gets me. Because we see this strong young woman who has saved the world half a dozen times over, the one everyone else looks to for strength and resolve, and in that moment, she’s just a little girl looking for her mommy. Tearing up as I write this.”

#9. Wallow in the sadness.

“Dumbo visiting his mom in jail.”

#10. It’s a volleyball. And yet…

“When Wilson falls off the raft.”

#11. Van Gogh.

“Van Gogh in gallery scene from Doctor Who. Nothing on TV has ever made me cry. I weeped like a little bitch after that.”

#12. It gets me every time.

“Uncle Iroh’s short story in Avatar the Last Airbender, where he sings ‘Little Soldier Boy’. It gets me every time.”

#13. He’s so smart.

“How the heck has no one said Forrest talking to Jenny’s grave?”

#14. Crying buckets.

“Potential spoilers for “About Time” which is a movie where all the men from a family have the ability to travel through time to a past memory and the “secret” is passed down from father to son.

Throughout the whole movie the son will periodically visit his father in his memories and slowly come to realize that his father has been revisiting him at various points as well. He learns eventually that he doesn’t just have the ability to revisit his past, but he can alter it and change his future.

This leads to him breaking things for the worse and him going back and fixing everything again. At some point the son learns that certain things are truly random, however, and can’t be controlled. In one timeline, the son has a daughter with his wife. In another, he has a son. This leads the father to teach his son to never go back before certain points, because you can’t control the dice roll of genetics. Changing your past in a way that alters who your kid will be is super risky, so it’s best not to risk it.

At the end of the movie, the son is about to have another kid with his wife, but his father has also died. He goes back to a memory that has played in the movie multiple times where he and his father are playing ping pong.

Instead of hitting the ball back at his father like he has countless times, the son lets it drop and his dad just looks at him. There is silence for a moment. Then he asks the son if he has died.

The son says yes and that he’s about to have another kid so he can’t come back to this memory anymore.

The dad says something like, “fancy another go?”

Then there’s a montage of home-movie-style clips where it shows the father and son essentially reliving their entire lives together once again before the son returns to the present never to see his dad again.

I’m a grown ass man and that shit made me cry fucking buckets.”

#15. I could have got more out.

“Oskar Schindler: I could have got more out. I could have got more. I don’t know. If I’d just… I could have got more.

Itzhak Stern: Oskar, there are eleven hundred people who are alive because of you. Look at them.

Oskar Schindler: If I’d made more money… I threw away so much money. You have no idea. If I’d just…

Itzhak Stern: There will be generations because of what you did.

Oskar Schindler: I didn’t do enough!

Itzhak Stern: You did so much.

[Schindler looks at his car]

Oskar Schindler: This car. Goeth would have bought this car. Why did I keep the car? Ten people right there. Ten people. Ten more people. [removing Nazi pin from lapel]

Oskar Schindler: This pin. Two people. This is gold. Two more people. He would have given me two for it, at least one. One more person. A person, Stern. For this. [sobbing]

Oskar Schindler: I could have gotten one more person… and I didn’t! And I… I didn’t!”

10+ Annoying Plot Holes That Might Just Ruin Your Favorite Movie

Every movie has some plot holes. It’s really hard to write an interesting script that’s 100% realistic, and most of the time these plot holes are small enough to go unnoticed. Or, if you do see them, they’re at least not so glaring as to take you out of the experience. Then there are plot holes (like the ones that absolutely litter Frozen, omg) that make it impossible for us to take a movie seriously any longer.

Here are 15 movies with plot holes so gaping you’ll never be able to unsee them. Fair warning.

#1. Armageddon

Image Credit: Disney

Okay, so there are probably multiple plot holes in this fun but ridiculous romp, but the biggest one is that it would have been far easier for NASA to train astronauts to drill than the other way around – a fact that Affleck actually pointed out during the filming process but was told to shut up and keep working on his fake crying.

I made the last part up, but the rest is true.

So is the fact that you’ll still watch and enjoy this movie, because there’s no way to take it seriously from the get-go.

#2. Frozen

Image Credit: Disney

Here’s one of many: the gates were shut to prevent word of Elsa’s powers from getting to the world outside.

So why did Anna have to stay locked inside the castle inside the city? Answer: she didn’t.

#3. The Maze Runner

Image Credit: 20th Century Fox

The kids spend time lamenting how they have tried “everything” to get out of the crevasse and say specifically that they can’t use the ivy because it doesn’t go all the way to the top.

Except it clearly does, in just about every wide shot of that scene and others. Oops.

#4. Cinderella

Image Credit: Disney

A question for the ages – why don’t Cinderella’s slippers, which are part of the enchantment, also turn back into dingy flats at the stroke of midnight?

I don’t know about you, but I can forgive this one with the explanation that the fairy godmother knows what she’s doing and is basically setting the two up the entire time.

#5. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

Image Credit: Lionsgate

Haymitch says early in the serious that there are “career tributes” from Districts 1 and 2 and that the tributes from those districts have won the Hunger Games “almost every year.”

So, how are there a living female and male victor from every other district to put up as mentors? Statistically, it shouldn’t be true.

#6. The Hangover

Image Credit: Warner Bros.

I know, I know, why even bother having this movie make sense? While that may be true, they could have made it a tad more believable by realizing that there’s not one single inch of a Vegas hotel and casino that’s not caught on video camera.

Someone would have seen and checked on Doug long before two days had elapsed.

#7. Twilight

Image Credit: Lionsgate

Victoria, a vampire who wants to kill Bella Swan, appears twice in the end frames of the movie. It’s been established that Edward can hear the thoughts of people in close vicinity, so why doesn’t he hear hers and do something about it sooner?

Not such a big hero now, huh?

#8. Gone Girl

Image Credit: 20th Century Fox

After Amy returns, she spends time at the hospital being examined by doctors. Since only about a month has passed since she was “attacked,” they should find it suspicious (at best) that she bears no scars or evidence of such a brutal attack.

#9. Toy Story

Image Credit: Disney

If Buzz Lightyear thinks he’s real and not a toy, why does he freeze around the humans like the other toys?

Hmmmm.

#10. Ant-Man

Image Credit: Disney

This is a big one. Ant-Man is told explicitly – more than once – that his mass doesn’t change even though he gets small.

How, then, can actual ants (or any small insect) support his weight, even in a group? They can’t.

#11. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

Image Credit: Warner Bros.

When Ron finds Harry on the Hogwart’s Express and says that everywhere else is full – how can that be true if Harry is sitting alone in a compartment for 6 people?

Personally, I think Ron just wanted an excuse to meet the infamous Harry Potter. Who wouldn’t?

#12. Wonder Woman

Image Credit: Warner Bros.

Oh, the sword-concealing blue dress. Think on this one: the dress flies off while she’s riding a horse, revealing her Wonder Woman costume underneath…

But there’s no way she was wearing the costume underneath, since it’s cut much higher and would have been easily seen.

#13. The Day After Tomorrow

Image Credit: 20th Century Fox

The skyscrapers (and everything else) are covered in about 10 feet of snow and ice…

So how did people manage to get out onto the roof to be rescued at the end?

#14. Signs

Image Credit: Disney

If the aliens are afraid of or hurt by water, as is revealed in the end, how were they running through a dew-covered cornfield at the film’s outset?

Hmm.

#15. The Dark Knight Rises

Image Credit: Warner Bros.

Bane keeps the entirety of the police force (which, you know, presents some problems in and of itself) trapped in underground tunnels for months before Batman rescues them.

They’re all healthy, clean, shaven, and somehow, you know. Not dead.

And you thought she thought of everything.

10 Abandoned Film Sets That Are Hauntingly Beautiful and Still Intact

Everything is make-believe in Hollywood, and it’s no surprise that after countless productions, there are a lot of sets that get left behind. Eventually, they’re reclaimed by Mother Nature, as is the way of all things. There’s something eery about places like these, as if the ghosts of the past are still there. And while there’s no reason to think any of these still-intact film sets are teeming with ghosts, well…there’s no reason to think they’re not, either.

#1. Port Royal (Pirates of the Caribbean)

Image Credit: Disney

Image Credit: Twitter

The set was constructed on St. Vincent, on Wallilabou Bay, and you can find many of the set pieces still hanging out like someone is coming back for them.

#2. Bus/Train crash (The Fugitive)

Image Credit: Warner Bros.

Image Credit: YouTube

The bus/train crash from the film was physically recreated…and left to decompose somewhere in the Great Smoky Mountains. Tell me you wouldn’t run the other way if you happened upon this in the wild.

#3. Gas station (The Hills Have Eyes)

Image Credit: Fox Searchlight

Image Credit: YouTube

This creepy horror flick takes place in Nevada, but if you want to visit this relic of the set, you’ll have to trek all the way to Ouarzazate, Morocco.

#4. The Long Branch Saloon (Gunsmoke)

Image Credit: CBS/Twitter

The building is still standing in Kanab, Utah, though based on these pictures it looks as if that might not be the case for long.

#5. The diner from Looper.

Image Credit: Reddit

Image Credit: Endgame Entertainment

Out in the middle of nowhere, Louisiana, and completely intact, as if it was dropped there by aliens. Or, you know…time travelers.

#6. Popeye’s village (Popeye, 1980)

Image Credit: Paramount, Flickr

The village was constructed in Malta and left to the country’s government after wrapping. They’ve done nothing to keep it up, but it does function as a tourist attraction if you’re up for a visit.

#7. The Bar None Ranch (Hey, Dude!)

Image Credit: Nickelodeon

Image Credit: YouTube

If you’re a millennial, this probably looks familiar, but Nickelodeon hasn’t used the set since 1991.

#8. Westworld Set Piece

Image Credit: HBO, Instagram

The Hawthorne Mall, in California, has been closed since 1999 but Hollywood can’t leave it alone – Taylor Swift also shot her “Ready For It” music video inside.

#9. District 12 (The Hunger Games)

Image Credit: Lionsgate, Instagram

The set, in Henry River Mill, NC, looks more like it belongs in the final installments of the trilogy cause it’s rundown and eerily empty.

#10. The American West in The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

Image Credit: United Artists, Instagram

It’s actually Texas Hollywood and, oddly enough, stands untouched in Almeria, Spain. Huh.

Seriously Crazy Facts About “Crazy Rich Asians”

Kevin Kwan’s bestselling novel, Crazy Rich Asians, was recently released as a blockbuster movie by the same name and by all accounts, it was a smashing success. Some even went so far as to say the film is helping revive the rom-com genre.

The story follows college professor Rachel Chu as she travels with her fiance, Nick Young, to Singapore to meet his family. She soon discovers that his family is one of the richest in the country…and his mother is an ice queen (classic!).

The all-Asian cast created an instant buzz for the movie, which was critically acclaimed and one of the highest grossing films of the past ten years. Here are ten more crazy facts about Crazy Rich Asians.

1. Many people in Singapore criticized the movie by saying casting did not truly reflect their demographic because it lacked Chinese and Southeast Asian actors.

However, global reception of the movie has been much more positive.

2. Chu and his music supervisor searched YouTube to find singers fluent in Mandarin to provide covers for the soundtrack.

Photo Credit: Warner Bros.

And if you’ve heard it, you know all that research definitely paid off.

3. One producer interested in the film project early on suggested Rachel be white.

Photo Credit: Warner Bros.

Thankfully, Kwan optioned the project to Warner Bros instead for $1 to keep creative control and avoid any more stupid suggestions like that.

4. Michelle Yeoh, who plays domineering MIL Eleanor, is also Malaysian.

Photo Credit: Wikimedia Commons

She and Golding have another fellow countryman in the film: Ronny Chieng, who played Eddie Cheng, Nick’s cousin.

5. The sequel has already been optioned, and it’s called China Rich Girlfriend.

Sounds like that’s more of a prequel in my opinion, but I’ll wait till it comes out to judge.

6. Wu has been nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy.

Photo Credit: Warner Bros.

Obviously, the movie is more than just your average rom-com.

7. This was Golding’s first film.

Photo Credit: IMDB

Before starring in Crazy Rich Asians, Golding’s only on-camera experience was hosting a travel show.

8. The film, which had a production budget of $30 million, has grossed $238 million worldwide.

Photo Credit: Warner Bros.

It out-grossed Sandra Bullock’s The Proposal and Sarah Jessica Parker’s Sex and the City, making it the top-grossing romantic comedy in the past ten years.

9. Constance Wu, who played Rachel Chu, feared scheduling conflicts with Fresh Off The Boat.

Photo Credit: Flickr

So she wrote a letter to director John Chu, convincing him to change the schedule because she connected with Rachel’s character so much.

10. Henry Golding being cast as Nick Young caused some controversy.

Photo Credit: Wikimedia Commons

Golding’s father is white and his mother is Malaysian. Korean-American celebrity, Jamie Chung, took issue with the fact that Golding “wasn’t Chinese enough.” Golding graciously said he was happy that people were looking at the casting and voicing their opinions. Chung has since apologized.


What makes Crazy Rich Asians so special is what it highlights: just because people are the same ethnicity in a broad sense doesn’t make them alike (a pretty uncontroversial point that for some reason still needs to be emphasized in 2018). Every family and each individual carries unique experiences and backgrounds that set them apart – but at the same time, family and love are pretty universal.

Also, being rich doesn’t always mean having a lot of money.
