Movies are full of surprises that often go unnoticed.
The old times are gone where the movies would be 3 to 4 hours long, every scene would be at least 10 minutes long and frameshifting would be very less frequent. In today’s time, the movies are very fast-paced, the stories are narrated at a very quick speed, frames shift really quick and one scene goes on for no longer than 30 seconds to 2 minutes. This is done to keep the viewers interested and keep them vested in the movie. Imagine hearing a dumb conversation for 10 minutes, you wouldn’t want to know what happens next. That is why today’s movies are around an hour and a half long on average.
Now, this is a great thing but given how fast-paced these movies are, you tend to miss a lot of details. Hence, the YouTube channels that break down the movies for us have a lot of subscribers. And when we do get to know about those details, there is a temptation to watch the movie again as now you have more knowledge about it.
Here are 18 details from movies that you guys probably missed.
