Here are more secrets. Not that big a deal. Won't let the cat out, though. Would never do that - so don;t worry about terminating the author!
BIG SECRET EDITION
1. Black and White.
The black and white pattern of either checkerboard or stripes is a MUST for all films. Every single motion picture ever made HAS to incorporate this color pattern if it is to be released. It is a symbol of the power, and who is in control. Whether it is a floor that has the pattern, a sign with it, or a short worn by a character... even a houndstooth jacket, overcoat, you will see the black and white in every motion picture. It sucks - but this is how it is. Dates back to the beginning. Here are some reent films I've watched - and each one has it. Here's where they are:
Seeking a friend for the end of the world (film review /quality rating score: 0.1890) : Steve Carell's character has an cherboard (black and white kitchen floor- pretty obvious)
Amityville Horror II: The Possession (Score 6.9999): The little kid - is wearing a black and white striped shirt.
Thirty Minutes or Less: (painful to watch, but Dany McBride is funny- score: 5.5522): The pizza parlor has a checkered sign on the ide nad on the front door and windows. There is also an all-seeing eye on the street sign where Dwayne and his pal are listening to matchbox 20 and they see the for rent sign on the store.
The Matrix: (7.2999): Neo and Fishburne are wearing guy (sic) that are black and white. Less obvious.
Bridesmaides( 6.6760): Wiig is wearing a black and white striped shirt on the airplane - when she gets drunk. Note - the hot girl was in "Two Hands" with Heath Ledger - an aussie flick filmed in the mid-nineties - if you think she is hot in Bridesmaides or x-men first class - check out "Two Hands" she even sports her ausssie accent - su super sexy.
Over The Top: (10/10) Hawks is wearing a "New York" shirt before his big match with BUll Hurley (undefeated in 5 years). It is less obvious. Kudos for not selling out like all the rest.
2. Pyramid/ Triangle
This is where each film director gets into a contest of "who can be the most creative in positionsing a pyramid, unconventially, into a film." Whether it is a street corner, or the back of a tv , or the way the film is shot - of say a balcony - bu adjuting the angle of the shot, directors appear to have alot of fun incorpotaing as many pyramids as possible into their films. You will not, I repeat, you will never encounter a film that does not have a pyramid. Just the facts of life. They symbol represents how 5% of the population owns 85 of the wealth. It is their modu operandi, and important. Thus, we see them all over.
It is not a big deal - but I find it to be interesting how this has stretched through time - preserved - and applied almost as if it is critical. Even in "Three Days of The Condor" "Lucifer, or Max Von Sydow's character wears a big long houndstooth overcoat.... and that was filmed in 1975.
So folks, next time you watch a film... keep an eye (no pun intended) out for the trinagle/pyramid requirement... and on the clothing of the characters (paid actors) in the films. You will see that symbology is rampant, and I guess just a way of payaing homage to their servitude. If I were tomake a film, I would not include these two items, unless they are necessary.
