The Best Film Secrets

Updated: Jun 16, 2020

1) The 'welcome home' cake in Coraline features a double loop on the O. Graphologically, a double loop on a lower case O means the person who wrote it is lying. As there is only one double loop, it means she is welcome but she is not home.

2) In Tarantino's 'Pulp Fiction', Mia outlines the assassins in his other film 'Kill Bill'. In fact, Tarintino has stated that many of his films exist in the same universe, where the events of 'Inglourious Basterds' lead to a desensitised, hyper-violent world.

3) For Christopher Nolan's 'Interstellar', he planted five-hundred acres of corn, specifically for the film, so as to avoid CGI. After the filming, he had the corn harvested and sold to profit the budget.

3) In the DVD version of Fincher's 'Fight Club', the following warning can be read:

4) In Scorsese's 'Shutter Island', so much of Teddy Daniel's reality comes down to the visuals of fire and water. When water is in the shot, he is closer to reality and truth (and he is trying to block it out). But when fire is in the shot, it is representative of the alternate reality he hallucinates. These opposites are especially fitting, as both have the potential to kill him.

5) In 'John Wick' and 'John Wick 2', despite the films being shot three years apart, they are set four days apart, and all the cars outside the Continental hotel are the same between films.

6) In 'Shawshank Redemption', Darabont wanted Red's 20 year-old mugshot, so they used Morgan Freeman's son Alfonso:

7) In the film 'Titanic', a woman is seen telling her children of "Tír Na Nóg, The Land Of Eternal Youth And Beauty". In Irish mythology, this land can be reached by going underwater or across the sea.

8) In 'The Matrix', when Neo is being dragged out of the office building at the beginning, every cut of the scene has a woman in red passing by. Red is symbolic of not only warning but of courage and sacrifice.

9) Furthermore, in this same Matrix scene, the Wachowskis used multiple set of twins, to create the feeling of a copy and paste world.

10) In 'The Revenant', there are depictions of Satan from Dante's 9th layer of Hell, paralleling the frozen landscape against the frozen layer in which Satan resides.
