Never noticed this before

How many times have you watched a film for the umpteenth time and noticed something for the first time?

I was watching the start of "Big." All this time, I've thought that Josh Baskin's parents were divorced or something. But at the start of the film, when his mother calls him to take out the trash, a male voice asks something like, "didn't you hear your mother?"

Now, I know that doesn't mean father, but I'll go by the CC, which says the voice is "Mr. Baskin."

What's really stupid of me is that they even SHOW the father, when they're at the carnival before Josh first sees the Zoltan machine.

I wonder why that got so minimized in my mind all these years.

In Star Wars, the lasers have a stun setting.

They use it once, in the first five minutes, and never again for the entire franchise.

Re: Never noticed this before

Watching Cloud Atlas, Frobisher listens to Ayers talk about the music he heard in a dream, and says "When you aren't thinking about it, it will come to you," or some such thing we've all heard before. Ayers says to him that he is naive. Frobisher responds - with much certainty - "I'm anything but."

But what's interesting about this is that, earlier in the film, when Kesselring, who is from Germany, visits, Ayers and Frobisher later discusses how Kesselring could never be with Jocasta, the Jewish woman. Frobisher asks why not, and Ayers condemns him for his naivete, saying "can you really be that ignorant of what's happening in Germany?"

In fact, Frobisher is quite naive throughout the movie. That naivete allows him to believe in reincarnation, which does come to pass.

Same thing happened with me. I didn't realize it until you just posted this.

Re: Never noticed this before

I asked my husband last night--in "Big," were the parents divorced or was the mother widowed or was the father present? He said he thought they were divorced, but...

I told him that not only is there a man's voice, not only do they show the father at the carnival...then Hubby finished the sentence. "Josh took his dad's clothes."

All these very visible points and we never remembered he was in the movie! Kinda feel sorry for the actor. Maybe it's because the mother got all the best lines.

Re: Never noticed this before

This just happen with me and the movie, How To Train Your Dragon. HTTYD is my oldest sons favorite movie, he's four and watches it a few times a week. So I have probably seen or half watched this movie hundred times by now. When Hiccup is given his helmet by his dad Stoick, he tells him it was made from his mothers breast plate. I never caught that little tidbit before. Then when Stoick leaves Hiccup thanks him for the Breast hat. I actually had to rewind the Blu-ray to make sure what I heard and after confirming it, I laughed out loud.

The "twist ending" to Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is stated obviously right at the beginning of the movie. I don't know how I missed that several times.

TV-wise, I never noticed until long after ST:TNG ended that Betazoid eyes are all black.

Daniel Plainview's (Daniel Day-Lewis) son in There Will Be Blood is not his actual son. I must have been drifting at the beginning, & just mesmerized by Day-Lewis' performance or something, that it got past me. I really don't know how. It's pretty plain

Credit this to a recent Cracked article: towards the beginning of Jurassic Park, Grant solves his helicopter seatbelt problem by tying two "male" ends together; this foreshadows the revelation that the dinosaurs' genders are somewhat fluid.

Did anyone else ever notice the gun that the Scarecrow carries in The Wizard of Oz?

There's also Hiccup's final test, when Astrid goes on her little rant, they left the actresses full rambling in the scene so you hear her drop the f-bomb only a couple of seconds in as she leaves the screen.

Re: Never noticed this before

In TESB when Luke jumps down into the shaft to follow Vader you can actually hear a little "boing" bounce sound as Luke jumps on the small trampoline. A second later his head bounces back up into frame.

Re: Never noticed this before

In that ENT episode where the Xindi attack Earth, and Archer is watching footage from the Vulcan starship that had earlier entered the Delphic Expanse (and its crew came out insane), some of the Vulcans in that clip are trying to do the Vulcan Death Grip. Which does not actually exist!

I've seen topic being discussed recently on IMDB. I always remember seeing the gun, but I don't understand that the big deal about it is all of a sudden. The Munchkin soliders had rifles and no one makes a big deal about that.

So I'm wondering if its an anti-gun thing or just someone without a brain having a gun (which I guess the anti-gun people would love as a symbolic methaphor or something).
