Rappers get all of the good acting jobs.

In many movies the center rearview mirror will appear, then disappear. In the original Robocop, there is a scene where the bad guys are blowing up building, businesses and Kurtwood Smith, the head bad guy drives up in one of the new super cars that has been seen in commercials throughout the movie. He gets out, slams the door, and as he walks around the front of the car, the rear-view mirror falls off.

The lesson I learned from the movie 'How do you know' is, "Don't drink to feel better, drink to feel 'even' better."

If Ben Stiller is in it, it must be a B-movie (that doesn't mean I don't like Ben).

Action guys don't flinch while walking away from an explosion.

I learned from the movie 'Other Peoples money' that "lawyers are like nuclear weapons: I've got em coz everyone else has. But as soon as you use them they screw everything up."

Actually, the overpressure from an explosion can (and will) kill you; compressing your internal organs and crushing your lungs is not good for you. The shrapnel isn't good for you either. Fireballs don't go along with explosions nearly as often as Hollywood would have you believe; the colorful ones in movies have to be augmented with a colorant. Coffee creamer, by the way, produces excellent fireballs!

Ask a state trooper or a fire fighter sometime, though, if they've ever seen a crashed car explode in a huge pyrotechnical ball of pretty orange flame, and they'll say, "Nope. Sometimes they catch fire and burn for a while, though."

But all it takes to kill you explosion-wise is a near-instantaneous transition from one atmosphere pressure to a few dozens.

Yes, but I was referring to the way that people in action movies always seem to be able to outrun the fireball, which (like the pressure wave) is traveling more or less at the speed of sound.

Things I learned from slasher movies:

Events always take place in a small town,
there is only two cops in that town,
and the Sheriff's daughter gets murdered.

If you want a beautiful woman to spend the night with you, make sure you have a generous supply of L-shaped bed sheets.

If you watched the "extras" on the "Casino Royale" disc, there's a really interesting reveal on just how you do make an Aston Martin flip over....and over....and over.

Not an easy thing to do, if you're flipping real cars. The solution, involving compressed air,a big mutha cylinder and some very brave stuntmen, was worthy of Mythbusters.
