THE REAL-LIFE REMINDERS

Pain And Gain

Film: Pain And Gain

What happens? In Michael Bay’s adaptation of the true story reported in the Miami News, what’s amazing is what he didn’t add. Amid muscly men and pneumatic, scantily-clad women, an explosion or two and a number of instances of unsafe driving, Bay actually takes the time to remind us that the least believable stuff is actually true. They really did barbecue a human hand, for instance, in a lunk-headed attempt to dispose of evidence of a murder.

WTF? Seriously, that really did happen. The great shame of Pain & Gain is that people were hesitant to credit it with any relationship to real life because Michael Bay made it, but if you read the story itself, all the most ludicrous stuff basically came from court documents.

The lesson: Sometimes people are weird.

21 Not very WTF at all...
I seriously think whoever rights these articles for you isn't a comic book fan, or indeed, doesn't watch the movies very closely. The credit sting in Thor TDW.... Firstly, the canister does not contain the Aether. If you know what Gardians of the Galaxy is about and who they are facing, the whole Collector thing makes perfect sense. I don't want to give away any spoilers to people who don't know the comics, but all this is tied together very easily by a single plot point. I'd think that the bigger WTF moment from the movie would be from the previous 'Odin' scene towards the end. That's made far more people wonder WTF and where are they going with it then the credit sting. Okay... The whole W.H.O Doctor thing with Capadli isn't wtf in the slightest. Its just a massive coincidence. You have to remember he would have been cast in the role at least a year before the film was finished, so it was a long time before we even knew Matt Smith would be leaving at they'd have to find a More
