Things I Learned From The Movies

Inspired by this post by msmariah on her blog A Space Blogyssey, here's my own list of survival tips and life lessons from the movies. Hollywood really can teach you everything you need to know...

Remember cardio... and the double tap

No amount of Irish dancing will save you

Take a cruise on a replica of the Titanic? Sure - there's no way that could go badly wrong...

Always renew your antivirus subscription
(Independence Day)

Don't worry - air travel is really safe nowadays
(Snakes On A Plane)

Carry your umbrella at all times
(The Day After Tomorrow)

...and some fairly strong headache pills

Your perfect match is out there waiting to be found

It's a hard, lonely life being a superhero

but most of all...

Always be the person at the front of the queue

I love your list! It's very informative! Although I think I would try to avoid the last item on the list like the plague! :)

Maurice - yes, Michael Flatley is still alive, although for some reason he and all of his dancers seem to be paralyzed from the waist up... Incidentally I've added links to my reviews of some of the above films.
