Who could forget this movie? It is one of the best-selling movies in history. The millennials probably couldn’t relate. But in the movie, Jack tells Rose that he and his father used to go ice-fishing in Lake Wissota. Let’s go back to history and trace the origin of Lake Wissota. The real lake was actually formed by a dam in 1917, while the Titanic sank in 1912. The scriptwriters could have used some other lake.
In the Oscar-winning movie Forrest Gump, there’s a short scene where Tom Hanks’ character receives a thank you letter from Apple in 1975 after he and his former military colleague and business partner invested some of the profits from the Bubba Gump Shrimp company in “some kind of fruit company”. If Gump was real, and if he was still holding onto his investment today, he would be a billionaire. But in reality, Apple became a public traded company in 1981.
In the climactic battle scene between the army of King Leonidas and King Xerxes of Persia, the Persian army used bombs and other explosives to fight King Leonidas’ army. They looked cool and very much advanced compared to the Spartans who only used their swords and bow and arrows. But in reality, black powder wasn’t invented until the 9th century by China.
The Book of Eli is a post-apocalyptic tale where a lone warrior marches across the ruined wasteland carrying the only hope for humanity’s redemption. Denzel Washington’s character was guarding a Braille bible. In real life, Braille books are much, much longer than printed books, so that means the translation of the bible should be about 38 volumes long. Imagine him, lugging that around.
This has baffled people for centuries, even until now. The Passion of the Christ is obviously about the life of Jesus Christ who lived in the Middle East and couldn’t be white. The photo of the presumed “Jesus Christ” we see right now is actually Caesar Borgia. Look it up and you’ll know what I mean.
