    A Subtle Chain Of Events Saves Tim's Life In 'Jurassic Park'

    From Redditor u/HellotoHorse:

    In Jurassic Park, Dr. Hammond goes to the freezer and takes out all the ice cream and decides to eat it since the power is out, and leaves the freezer door open on his way out. The power outage causes everything else in the freezer to melt and water to pool on the floor. Later when Dr. Sattler restores power the freezer turns back on and causes the water on the floor to partially freeze. This chain of events causes a fleeing Tim to enter the freezer, whose door had been left open, cause him and the chasing Velociraptor to both slip on the ice, and allowed Tim to escape, trapping the Velociraptor in the freezer.

    The Way Rick Loads His Gun In 'The Mummy' Showcases His Military History

    From Redditor u/AnonTexan1297:

    In The Mummy, Brendan Fraser’s character is shown loading individual rounds into his rifle, in spite of its 8 round capacity. This is consistent with French military training, as the Lebel 1886 was equipped with a magazine cutoff; so that soldiers could hold rounds “in reserve.”

    All The Books That Pi Is Reading In 'Life Of Pi' Foreshadow The Future Events Of The Film

    From Redditor u/DeeThreeTimesThree:

    In Life of Pi, all the books that Pi is shown reading during the early stages of the film foreshadow the future events of the film, either through the books' cover or their story. The book in the photo is ‘L'Île mystérieuse’ (The Mysterious Island) by Jules Verne. The cover depicts a man and jaguar, which foreshadows Pi’s time in the Pacific with Richard Parker (the tiger), while the contents of the book (the Mysterious Island) predicts the (floating) island that Pi encounters at the end of the film. Another book that Pi is seen reading is ‘L’Étranger’ (The Stranger) by Albert Camus. In ‘The Stranger’, as summarised by Camus, tells us “any man who does not weep at his mother's funeral runs the risk of being sentenced to death”. This not only foreshadows Pi’s mother and family dying, but also predicts that Pi will survive, as he ‘weeps’ at his mother’s death. The last book Pi is shown reading is ‘White Nights’ by Fryodor Dostoyevsky. This book is about a man who is suffering from loneliness. This foreshadows Pi’s isolation in the Pacific.
