    From Redditor u/bloughead09:

    If you exclude all of the present-day scenes in Titanic (1998), leaving only those taking place in 1912, the film would run for 2 hours and 40 minutes - the exact time it took for the Titanic to sink. Needless to say, James Cameron is a perfectionist.

    That's Not A Rash In The 'Pirates of the Caribbean' Series

    From a Redditor:

    In the Pirates of the Caribbean series (2003), Jack Sparrow has a red spot on his jaw. This red spot is a joke between Depp and the makeup department. The red spot is actually supposed to be syphilis, and it gets progressively more noticeable in each film.
