We watch a movie and in most cases, we forget it the second we walk out of the movie theater because it is not that interesting. But then there are movies that we want to watch again and again. Once we watch a movie more closely, we start to notice the Easter eggs in it. So, here is a list of 50 movie details that went unnoticed all the times you previously watched those films. Let's get started.
1. Wrapping Things Up In 30 Minutes
In the movie Fargo, Steve Buscemi's character, Carl, delivers a line, "30 minutes, Jerry, we wrap this thing up," exactly 30 minutes before the movie ends.
The 1996 black comedy thriller film Fargo was a huge critical and commercial success. According to the American Film Institute, it is one of the 100 greatest American films of all time.
2. Connecting Two Tarantino Films in One Conversation
Do you consider yourself a die-hard Tarantino fan? Well, this is something that will make you salute the amazing filmmaker.
Quentin Tarantino so effortlessly gave a hint of his 2003 film Kill Bill in his hit film Pulp Fiction which was released in 1994. Now, that's how you tell people about the future
3. Fight Club Movie’s Warning Screen You Don't Want To Ignore
Normally, people don't expect to find Easter eggs at the start of the movie, but the creators of Fight Club decided to do something about it.
If you take a closer look at the Warning Screen on the home DVD version of Fight Club, you'll find this warning message laughing at you. The person who discovered it deserves some sort of award for it.
4. Christopher Nolan = Perfection
We all know that Christopher Nolan is one of the best filmmakers and he's known for delivering nothing short of perfection. So, when it came to making Interstellar, the genius filmmaker decided to plant 500 acres of corn just for the film.
Why did he do it? Well, he just didn't want to use CGI on the farm. After concluding the film, he sold the corn and made a profit out of it, Now, that's corny!
5. The Hate of Marty for Trees In Back To The Future
The 1985 fantasy/Sci-fi film Back to The Future has die-hard fans and there's no surprise why. The movie is truly a masterpiece.
Well, in the movie the name of the mall changes when Marty goes into the past and runs over one of the two trees. This is actually genius and funny.
6. No Trouble In Reading The Cover
Fans of Disney 1987's The Princess Bride give us a big cheer. It is one of the best Disney movies without any doubt.
Not many people know that the 20th Anniversary edition DVD cover of The Princess Bride can be read upside down as well as right side up.
7. Inside Out Teaching About Mental Illness
Most of us loved the 2015 Fantasy/Comedy-drama Inside Out, but we didn't realize that it also taught us about understanding mental illness.
The movie perfectly explains mental illness and we think it is some brilliant work by the writers and creators of the film.
8. The Detail You Missed In "Cars"
The 2006 American computer-animated film Cars was a commercial and critical success. It made over $462 million and even got nominated for two Academy Awards.
Although it has many fans, most of them don't know one detail about it. In Cars, the canyons are all old cars and hood ornaments. Isn't it cool, right?
9. Tarantino's Dad Joke
This one made us laugh out loud. This is one of those things only Tarantino can do.
We loved it how Tarantino inserted his version of a dad joke into the credits. And now you have a solid reason to watch the entire credits before leaving the cinema.
10. Peter Parker Got What He Wanted
How many of you liked Spider-Man 2? As fans of Spider-Man, we have watched the movies hundreds of times. But how could we miss this detail?
In the movie, Peter Parker says he needs a "strong focus" before he jumps off a building. Well, he lands on a ford focus and it goes undamaged.
11. An Important Achievement In Zootopia
We are glad to see that finally characters have ears and the animators found some common sense.
However, we are not too happy with this photo as it is missing Arthur and his headphones.
12. Tarantino Paying Tribute in Style
Django Unchained is one of our favorite movies. We were only "today" years old when we found out that Tarantino paid tribute to someone in Django Unchained.
In the film, a man asks Django about his name and how it is spelled. Django responds, "The D is silent" and the man responds, "I know." Well, this man was none other than Franco Nero, the original Django from the original 1966 film.
13. When Clever Thinking Saved Money for Matrix Creators
In a scene of the movie Matrix, they couldn't hide the camera, so they put a coat over it and a half tie to match with Morpheus'.
As CGI was and still is quite expensive, they decided to go for a clever solution. Impressive work!
14. When a Kid Dressed Up As A Girl in Home Alone
In the movie, Kevin goes through Buzz's things and finds a picture of his girlfriend. As he says "woof" which implies she's a dog, the director thought it would be too mean to ask a real young girl to be in the photograph. So, what he did next is truly considerate.
He went on to ask the film's art director to have his son dress up a girl. This one made us a fan of the film's director, Chris Columbus.
15. Foreshadow Shows The Catwoman
Batman Returns is one of our favorite movies, but we never noticed a quite obvious detail in it.
In the movie, the shadow of Selena Kyle's glasses foreshadows her transformation into Catwoman.
16. Unchanged Cars In John Wick Movies
We believe that Keanu Reeves is one of Hollywood's most underrated actors. His movie John Wick came and it surprised everyone.
If you notice closely, John Wick parts 1 and 2 were filmed and released 3 years apart, but the cars outside the Continental Hotel are the same between films.
17. When Ed Laid Our All Key Events Before The Rise of Zombies
Shaun of The Dead is one of the best zombie movies out there. We loved the character of Ed in the film.
But did you notice that Ed actually laid out all key events before the zombies started killing everyone?
18. Genuine Expression in Die Hard
Alan Rickman's villainous role in Die Hard film was superb. But he didn't know that the stunt team pulled off an unexpected move to make the ending more realistic.
Rickman's petrified expression while falling was as real as it gets because the stunt team told him that they would drop him on the count of 3, but they dropped him at 1.
19. Baymax In Moana?
The 2016 American 3D computer-animated musical adventure film Moana was a 56th Disney animated feature film and we absolutely loved it.
It has a cool Easter egg in it. If you look closely, you'll see that one of the Kakamora in Moana is painted like Baymax from Big Hero 6.
20. Going for Cheaper Skeletons
This is one of the details that surprised us and most probably angered actress Jobeth Williams. So, after shooting the pool scene in the film Poltergeist, the actress came back and everything was okay. She later found out that the skeletons she was swimming around were 100% real.
As expected, it spooked her. The reason why real skeletons were used was that they were a lot cheaper to get from a medical company rather than making them out of rubber.
21. Back To The Future Did It Again With A Scarf
Here is another interesting fact for all movie buffs about the film Back To The Future.
The scarf of Doc in the Back to The Future III is actually made from his shirt which he wore in the Back to The Future II. #Mindblown.
22. Professor Snape Was Good All Along
One of the biggest reveals of the Harry Potter series is Professor Snape's role. He was a good person all along and his demise made us cry.
In the Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 2, he is still helping the Order of the Phoenix and it can be seen when he re-directs Mcgonangall's spells to his fellow death eaters.
23. Thumbprint on Lego Characters
In the Lego Movie, whenever a character had a shiny surface on them, that's when you can see a thumbprint on the surface.
This is a very clever detail that most of us have never noticed. All is you needed is a magnifying glass.
24. The Intro Became Darker With Each Movie
After knowing this detail, we felt a bit embarrassed because we thought we were the biggest fans of Harry Potter.
The intro of each Harry Potter movie becomes darker every year, just like movies.
25. Beatles' Submarine in Kingsmen
If you look at the vehicle hangar in Kingsmen, you'll notice that one of the vehicles is a yellow submarine of the Beatles.
So, we have a question: Does that mean Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr are retired secret agents?
26. A Traditional Way To Propose
We want a big cheer from the fans of Aladdin. Well, here is a detail we are 100% sure most of you missed.
During "A whole new world" while flying through Greece, Aladdin proposes Jasmine by throwing an apple at her. It was a proposal because in ancient Greece throwing an apple towards someone was one of the ways to propose them.
27. Jacques Knows How To Keep Clean
If you look at the after-credits scene of Finding Dory, you'll notice that Jacques' bag is the cleanest.
This scene is from the ending of Finding Dory. Both movies have similar ending scenes with this crew.
28. An Eagle Eye Twitter User
One Twitter user @shawnrobare noticed something most of us ignored our entire lives.
Well, he pointed out that Dennis Nedry from Jurassic Park wore similar outfits to characters in The Goonies. Amazingly, Kanthellen Kennedy was the producer of both films.
29. A Subtle Hint
How many of you have watched Evan Almighty and not become a big fan of it?
In the movie, God poses as a waiter and interestingly, his name tag says Al Mighty.
30. Using Son's Face in Shawshank Redemption
If you ask any movie enthusiast about their top 10 movies of all time, most of them will list Shawshank Redemption on the top of their list.
In this masterpiece movie, the mug shot of Red when he was 20-year-old required his younger version and so they photoshopped Morgan Freeman's son, Alfronso.
31. Ancient Version of Dreamworks Logo
In the 2000 animated adventure-musical comedy film The Road To El Dorado, Shaman flips through his book of spells and what he sees next remained unnoticed for a long time.
On the page, there is an ancient version of the Dreamworks logo. How could we all miss it?
32. Powerful MS Excel Defuses Bomb
What you are seeing is a scene from the movie Unthinkable. In this movie, the creators showed us the power of MS Excel.
This guy tries to defuse a nuclear bomb with excel...yeah, excel!
33. Vitamin D Supplements in The Truman Show
Now, this is one of the details that completely blew our minds. You see, Vitamin D supplements are highly recommended to those people who don't get regular sun exposure.
There is a brief moment in the film when we see Vitamin D supplements and it is really clever work.
34. Use of Pun Names In Zootopia
When Zootopia hit theaters, it became an instant hit. In one scene, we can see the pun names on Judy Hopp's iPod. The names are so hilarious.
By the way, accuracy in animated movies is usually high anyway. But this movie has set a new standard.
35. Professor Snape, The Unsung Hero
All those years, we hated Snape for the way he treated Potter and now we have immense respect for him.
In one scene, Harry's scar starts to hurt and Snape notices it. That's why he looks to the left, right at Professor Quirrel and later confronts him.
36. Sid The Sloth in Movie Robots
Sid the Sloth is a beloved character from the Ice Age, so it was a pleasant surprise to see him in the animated movie Robots.
The movie Robots is also created by the makers of Ice Age, so it all added up when we saw a robot version of Sid the Sloth in the background.
37. Uneven Mustache Just Like Hands of A Clock
This is one of the details which will make you say, "How did I never notice it."
In 2017's Beauty & The Beast, Cogsworth becomes human but his mustache remains uneven...just like the hands of a clock.
38. Avengers Special Way to Honor First Responders
In Avengers: Age of Ultron, we notice that the clock atop Grand Central Station is replaced with a memorial to first responders.
It is because the original one was destroyed during the battle of New York in the first Avengers film.
39. The Most Heart-Rending Scene of Titanic
There is a scene in Titanic in which the ship is about to sink and the woman comforts her children by telling them about "Tír Na Nóg, The Land Of Eternal Youth And Beauty"
Not many know that in Irish mythology, Tír Na Nóg can only be reached by going under water or across the sea.
40. Use of Actual Boats in Dunkirk
Dunkirk was another Christopher Nolan's masterpieces. It is a drama/historical period drama worth watching.
You'll be surprised to know that 20 of the little civilian boats used for filming Dunkirk actually took part in the evacuation in real life and saved many lives.
41. X Stays Illuminated Longer Than Other Letters
If you look at the "X" in "Fox" of Bryan Singer's X-Men movies, you'll notice that it stays illuminated just a bit longer than other letters.
By the way, which one of the X-Men movies is your favorite? Our favorite is Logan (it made us cry).
42. One Scene Representing Lester's Feeling
American Beauty is a film that has won many awards and honors for writing, directing, and acting.
There is one scene in which Lester's feeling toward his dead-end job is perfectly depicted. The scene seamlessly shows his feeling of imprisonment.
43. The Sinking Time of Titanic
Although the story of Jack and Rose is not based on reality, the creator did give it a more realistic touch.
At the end of Titanic, we can see that the clock says 2:20. In reality, Titanic sank at 2:20 AM as well.
44. Pennywise In One of The Town's Murals
The remake of Stephen King's "It" is quite scary. It gave us genuine scares and nightmares.
In one of the scenes, we can see that Pennywise The Clown is one of the town's murals.
45. No Thanks Message
At the end of credits of film Scream, Wes Craven left the message for The Santa Rosa City School District Governing Board.
It is because the governing board revoked a verbal agreement for the movie to be filmed in Santa Rosa High School shortly before they started to film.
46. Wait What? Convertible Waitresses?
We know Cars is a pretty crazy film, but this is not any of us expected.
In one of the scenes, we can see the truck stop advertises "Convertible Waitresses."
47. Little Shaking Details In Captain America: Civil War
Iron Man armor is lighter than War Machine and that's why War Machine makes the camera shake more when he lands.
Can you also hear the "thud" when the War Machine lands? Well, you gotta go see a doctor.
48. Same Shirt in Different Parts
Did any of you ever notice that Sid from Toy Story is actually the garbage man in Toy Story 3?
And we are left wondering here that after all these years he still has that shirt!
49. Kevin's Plane Ticket Ends Up In Trash
If you have ever wondered what happened to Kevin's plane ticket in Home Alone, here you have the answer.
Well, it got tossed into the trash and just like them we didn't realize it as well.
50. So, It Was Heroin After All
Let's end our list with none other than an unnoticed detail from Pulp Fiction. What a better way to end, right?
Well, in the movie Vincent Vega is most of the time on the toilet. It is because constipation is the side effects of heroin abuse.
