8 Movies With Honest Titles

Here is a list of what some movies should have been called if the directors were being honest.

Movies are made to have attracting titles, but often times it isn't true to what you see in the movies. Here's a few movies where what happens in the movie isn't true to the title.

1. "Pacific Rim"- Power Rangers vs Godzilla

Don't get me wrong, this was a great movie and the second one was even better, but it really was like the old power ranger shows where one enemy was defeated just to make way for a larger one.

2. "The Matrix"- Motion Blur

Also one of my favorite series, these movies contain tons of fight scenes. And while they are supposed to be in a computer world where "anything is possible if they can imagine it," that doesn't excuse the amount of times it decided to take out actual movement in favor of some poorly animated fight scenes.

3. "Marvel Movies"- Zero Tension

This one may get me attacked because of how well the last Marvel movie did but hear me out. All throughout the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there are scenes that would have loads of tension and make you question: "Oh no what's going to happen to our hero?" "Is this villain finally going to overpower our favorite super team?" These scenes would be amazing but Marvel does something that takes all of that suspense away. There have been many times where this could be suspenseful, at least for this movie, however Marvel makes a huge mistake in this; one that everyone actually loves. They release the dates for their next movies way too early. Many people love that they do that, they know when they get to see their favorite heroes on the big screen again. But this takes away from other movies, obviously nothing is going to happen to Captain America or Iron Man when Marvel has already announced the next movies involving them. I go into the theater knowing everything is going to be fine, it'd be a nice change of pace to have that suspense at least for the movie. I do love the Marvel movies, I had bought my tickets for Infinity War two weeks before it came out because I was so exited, but this is just one thing I think Marvel does wrong.

4. "The Lucky One"- Walking with Zac Efron

No seriously, that's all he does. I couldn't find a gif of it, but he walked from California to, I think, Arizona and most scenes are him either starting, being in the middle of, or coming back from, long walks. Zac Efron must have calves of steel after filming this movie.

5. "Star Wars Prequels"- The Angst is Strong with this One

The star wars prequels were good but I think this is the main thing many people took away as a joke from the entire trilogy. Yes Anakin went through some tough times, but in the end he essentially becomes Darth Vader because the Council wouldn't give him what he wanted. So instead he decides it's best to brood and throw a tantrum like a child.

6. "Toy Story 3"- Hurts the Heart

This movie decided to end with one of the saddest scenes in cinematic history, in my opinion. After three movies of someone getting separated and trying to get back to Andy, they end up being donated to a little girl because Andy went off to college.

7. "Moana"- Disney Calls Itself Out on its own Shenanigans

Throughout the movie, there are several times where Maui stops a typical Disney moment for some sarcastic humor.

8. "The Jungle Book"- Is this a Horror Version of the Lion King?

This movie is really good, the CGI is great, the characters are great, everything is great. However, there are A LOT of jump scares for supposedly a kid's movie. And they make the jump scared very loud. They also steal a very iconic scene from the Lion King. When Simba is in the gorge running from the wildebeest, Mowgli does the Exact same thing in this movie.

A Beginner's Guide to Milwaukee Sports

Part I: The Bucks

views

Being a college student in Milwaukee has its perks, especially for sports fans. Now, while some may have brought their hometown teams to college, others (myself included) may have warmed up to the Cream City teams without knowing much about them. If this is the case for you, then these pointers can help you start enjoying Milwaukee basketball without looking and sounding like a bandwagon fan.

Quick History

www.nba.com

Here are some facts about the Bucks that can make you feel more knowledgeable about the franchise:

- They have only won one championship (back in 1971) and have lost one NBA Finals series (1974) (Land of Basketball)

- They have only had one* MVP-caliber player in Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (#33) during the 1971, 1972, and 1974 seasons (Land of Basketball)

- Other Notable Players Include: Oscar Robertson (#1), Sidney Moncrief (#4), Jon McGlocklin (#14) and Ray Allen (#34) (Land of Basketball)

*Giannis Antetokounmpo may win the MVP award this year

Gear Up

This one is a bit of a no-brainer. Wearing team's colors or spirit wear is a must, especially if you're going to a game. Most items like hats and t-shirts are perfectly acceptable, and these are great if you're not trying to break the bank. Buying your gear from a sporting goods store will usually be cheaper than buying them from the team store (the main one of which is located in Fiserv Forum). Most online stores like NBA.com, Fanatics, Fansedge, and sometimes even the team's online store will have sales on sports gear, so getting a good deal on team wear is always a plus!

A Word of Caution: Jerseys

All three of these players are not part of the 2018-2019 roster and #77 and #3 have been reused by current players Ersan Ilyasova (#77) and George Hill (#3)

If you're willing to go the extra mile, buying a jersey can really get you into locked in and pumped for the live action. However, it should be kept in mind that official Nike NBA jerseys range from $110-$250, so they definitely are an investment. While there are other options available like the FastBreak jerseys by Fanatics, they are a simpler (still official) knockoff of the Nike jerseys. Also; beware buying sale jerseys. There are usually three reasons why jerseys are ever on sale (aside from a storewide sale): a player is injured, a player doesn't play much and is about to be traded, or a player has been traded. While there is nothing wrong with having the jersey of a player who went on to another team (like Kareem and Allen), you are not exactly going to get brownie points for wearing a Jabari Parker or a Thon Maker jersey anytime soon.
