People Mess With Famous Corporate Tag Lines, And We Just Can’t

We've been socialized to recognize corporations and what they represent just as much as we recognize people.

A big part of corporate marketing is some sort of catchy tag-line. We're all familiar: "Like a good neighbor, State Farm is there." Or, "They're always after me Lucky Charms!" These things have become just as much a part of our collective unconscious as the stories that are passed down through our families. So what happens when we mess with it a little?

There's something seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being a kid and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street. As a kid, I distinctly remember being made fun of for not just throwing the bag of chips I'd just eaten or an empty soda bottle into the gutter.

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go.

I love movies. The cinema has long been a savior of mine and has given me some of my greatest inspirations. But being an avid film watcher has also made me quite the critic. I can always tell when a movie is worth the money to see in theaters or wait until it's on basic cable with commercials. The signs of mediocrity abound, and sometimes they aren't that difficult to spot.

Redditor u/fjv08kl wanted to know what is obvious about mediocre cinema by asking.... What are some subtle 'red flags' that tell you a movie is not worth watching?
