Movie stuff you only just realised...
Guadians of the Galaxy 2 is a very specific take on Faust via The Devil's Advocate.

In Jurassic Park when Nedry slips down the slope there’s a slide whistle sound effect.

The sound effect that always throws me for a loop in Jurassic Park is when Nedry is laughing hysterically during his first scene, he makes an almost perfect raptor noise at one point. It's weird.

...but my fave is it taking me over 20 years to see Jeff Goldblum 'riding' the nose of the T-Rex through the bathroom wall right before it eats Gennaro off the toilet..

In RoboCop 2, Cain's got a " Nuke family" ...a perversion of a typical nuclear family.

Also....the scene showing the other attempts at creating more RoboCops failing and the subjects committing suicide. Murphy is the only one who didn't. Because he's Catholic and suicide isn't an option. That's the lightning in a bottle OCP was failing to crack the code on..

One of the most unintentionally (?) hilarious scenes in movie history.

I don't think it's unintentional. This is a RoboCop movie, kind of.

You're probably right, you Biden-supporter, you.

I saw City Lights for the first time last night (cross-referencing this post with the "Witless Imbecile" thread), and a couple things occurred to me while watching it. For one thing, I imagine somebody who's bad at recognizing body language and facial cues would probably be pretty lost watching a silent movie, because that's 95% of how it's told (pretty much everything but the title and dialogue cards). For another thing, it occurred to me that the key to why the Tramp is funny isn't because he's a tramp. It's because he's a tramp who acts like some well-to-do gentleman, twirling his cane and tipping his hat and so forth. "Hey, that's not how a poor guy in ragged clothes is supposed to act! Hilarious!" You know, I think this Charlie Chaplin guy might've been pretty good at comedy.

There's no way that that scene in RoboCop 2 was unintentionally funny..

In The Dark Knight "Five dead....two of them cops..." that Gordon tells Batman at the end. I always was unsure who the fifth person/second cop was. I just assumed Gordon was counting Ramirez but didn't know that yet that he didn't kill her. Now I realize that he was probably talking about the cop that ran back to Harvey's hospital room that the Joker shot. They didn't know Harvey didn't kill that guy too. So it's that cop first, and they just pinned that one on the wrong person. 2.Wuertz. 3.the guy supposed to get in the car with Maroni. 4. Maroni's driver 5. Maroni himself. There. That's always bugged me.

Movie stuff you should've realized a decade ago..

The messageboard for TDK wrestled with this for pages.

Do you think I've answered it or is that post no better at laying it to rest than all the posts about it before?

Five dead. Two of them cops. Who I guess are more important than regular people. If you're a cop.

I think Gordon just meant that murdered cops would be even harder to sweep under the rug. Not that he was placing more importance on them. But yeah cops do actually do that as well...so..

After watching my newly purchased Criterion of THE SEVENTH SEAL, I've decided that there's no way Roger Corman wasn't influenced by Bergman's depiction of the Middle Ages when he made THE UNDEAD (as seen on MST3K) the very same year.

I have no idea how many times I've seen Wrath of Khan, but I seem to always notice something new. This time I noticed that there are only two working phaser props (one has lights that blink in sequence, the other just lights up) and they change hands depending on who's in the shot.
