Movies as Code

I read just enough code to get some of these. In context I get others. For the most part I am lost. I haven't seen all the moved though.

Inception.

I can't tell which is greater: The feeling of elation I have that this cleverness exists (and my own pride for being able to understand it), or the despair that I know few people who would get it or find it funny.

     #titanic {
         float: none;
     }
Har!

But that's markup, not code.

@mixin iceberg {
    float:none;
}

#titanic {

Close Encounters of the Third Kind:
encounters:nth-child(3) {
margin: 0;
padding: 0;
}


I know close to nada about code, but I'm a smart enough individual to at least infer what they're getting at. Like this one. I understood! And it was funny.

If you're nerdy and you know it, write some code. *clap clap*

I love this - the shorter ones are funniest, IMHO.

Like coding, as in Hollywood screenwriting, there's one typewriterkeyboard, and thousand copierscopy-paste operations.

Regarding Scarface:

switch (tonyMontana){
case 1:
get="power";
break;
case 2:
get="women";
break;
default :
get="money";
break;


They messed up that order.

karathrace: Codewise it's correct. They start with 0, which defaults to "money", and then "power" and "women" get added step by step.

I now return to my HTML5-rendition of "Se7en".

these are great.
Cowboys and Aliens:
   <?php
        include("movie.php");
        include("cowboys.php");
        include("aliens.php");
       
        startMovie();
    ?>

Titanic wasn't a movie. people died. it was the 9-11/Reichstag fire of global warming. The world must be made safe from icebergs.

Why write code twice when you could just write twice as much code?
for (i = 0; i < 2; i++) {
    clap();
}

I really, really want somebody to write the loops in Primer.

I hate to say it, but that film is just a bunch of GOTOs.
