Things That I Have Learned From Watching Movies
“Everything I learned, I learned from the
movies.” Audrey Hepburn
I watch a lot of movies on planes. I love watching old movies and here is some of the things I have learned when flying across the world.
Characters seem to always find a parking spot directly in front of the building they are going to even in a large metropolitan area where parking is impossible.
When foreigners are alone, they prefer to speak English to each other.
When you are in a film, it is easy to control any vehicle you need to – especially landing a plane.
If you decide to start dancing in the street, everyone around you will know the steps you come up with and hear the music in your head.
The ventilation system in any building is the perfect hiding place. No one will ever think of looking for you in there and you can travel to any other part of the building.
Bad guys die quickly, good guys die slowly.
No matter how crowded the bar is, there are always stools by the bartender who is waiting to take your order.
Women can never find their car keys when being pursued by a killer. Once they find them it takes them a long time to find the ignition, giving the killer a chance to reach the car and pound on the window.
When driving down a straight road, it is always necessary to vigorously turn the wheel to the right or left every few minutes.
Cats always make a noise. If someone is scared by cat, it always has to meow before running off.
If you want to pass yourself off as a German officer you do not need to speak German. A strong guttural accent will suffice.
Aliens will always have more technology than we do.
This is very good ~ makes me smile at the movies and things that makes them so. The best, was your quote of Audrey Hepburn “Everything I learned, I learned from the movies.” Just watched a movie of hers last week at my parents…she was amazing.
Thanks for reading and commenting. I love some of those old movies and I love her.
