POP CULTURE: Bad Lessons From Hollywood

One might even say that this list from Cracked.com is the most fundamentally conservative thing you will ever read about the movies.

This is also hilarious, and could also be applied to the world at large. I like the Venn diagram about Sweeney Todd. They don't mention the worst offender of all, which was the ad campaign for the animated Lord of the Rings movie in the 1970s, which led filmgoers to believe it was the entire trilogy, not just the Fellowship of the Ring.

Don't forget the Steve Reeves Hercules. When the studios complained to Dilaurentis that he showed the only good 2 minutes of the movie in the trailer, his answer was, "So what? They won't know until they pay the ticket."
