I’m going to have a little more fun this week by taking a humorous look at terms that have diametrically opposing definitions when applied to movies and vehicles.
Let’s get this show on the road.
Traffic tickets are penalties for drivers that can result in a suspended driver license, but movie tickets benefit patrons by allowing them to enter a particular movie showing.
Shocks are designed to reduce tension and spare motorists any jolts or scares as they drive on bumpy roads, but they are meant to increase tension by jolting and scaring moviegoers as they watch scary movies.
Make, Model, Year
Every vehicle has a make, model, and year, but only a really successful movie can make a model’s year. By the way, Famke Janssen, Rebecca Romijn, Milla Jovovich, Djimon Hounso, Cameron Diaz, Mark Wahlberg, Angelina Jolie, and numerous other famous actors started out as models before breaking into Hollywood. So it’s not uncommon for models to become actors.
A Few Similarities, Too
Of course, movies and cars do have some things in common. To make the ride smoother, cars have suspension and movies require suspension of disbelief. Plus, cars and movie productions have to be green-lighted before they can move forward.
I hope you enjoyed this fun little list. Stay tuned for more unique takes on films.
This is the Deja Reviewer bidding you farewell until we meet again.
