Movies often require you to suspend your disbelief. And this is not a bad thing. If you couldn’t do that then the whole concept of movies would be ruined. All you would every think about is how fake it is and why those actors are so scared. The camera crew is right there! Ok, that sounds dumb. But the point is that to enjoy any theatrical production you have to suspend your imagination. You have to enter into the world of the characters, whether they are on stage or on screen. In some movies, however, you are required to do this a lot more than in others. Oftentimes, this will happen when you are watching really old movies. Or maybe not even that old. Because in case you haven’t realized, rapid technological advancements like the internet and mobile phones have punched gaping holes in the storylines and plots of numerous blockbusters. Take something as basic as Star Wars. Why didn’t Leia just email the plans? Or text message? Or use Facebook? And speaking of Facebook. The entire plot of movies like 16 candles gets thrown out the window right there. Seriously? How can you forget anybody’s birthday anymore? It’s thrown in your face every time you go on the internet! These are 25 movies that would end within a few minutes if they happened today!
