If you watch the movie Jaws backwards, it’s about a shark that keeps throwing up people until they have to open a beach.

(I got this from a reddit thread.)


The movie Superman Returns has been on FX a lot lately, but we always seem to catch it near the end of the movie, when Superman is being beaten up by kryptonite and Lex Luthor.   This is actually the Ladybug’s only exposure to the Man of Steel, which is amusing, because if you ask her about Superman, she just says, “Oh, he’s that guy who gets hurt and falls down a lot.”


Speaking of, one of the guys in Superman Returns is James Marsden, an actor I absolutely feel sorry for.   His filmography includes

  • Superman Returns, where he plays Richard White — the guy who loses his girl Kate Bosworth to Superman.
  • X-Men and X-Men 2, where he plays Cyclops — the guy who loses his girl Famke Jansen to Wolverine… and then gets killed by her in X-Men 3.
  • The Notebook, where he plays Lon Hammond Jr — the guy who loses his girl Rachel McAdams to Ryan Gosling.
  • Enchanted, where he plays Prince Edward — the guy who loses his girl Amy Adams to Patrick Dempsey.

According to the IMDB, he’s just wrapped up a movie called Nailed, and for the sake of his future typecasting, I sure hope that’s all that happens to him in it.


In the movie Jurassic Park 2, brilliant and famous choatician Ian Malcolm spends time insulting Peter Ludlow after the umpteenth dinosaur attack.   He says “When you try to sound like (your uncle), it comes off as a hustle.   I mean, it’s not your fault.   They say talent skips a generation, so I’m sure your kids will be sharp as tacks.”

Of course, Ian is walking hand-in-hand with his daughter when he says that.   What a dick.
