Learnings from Movies & TV Series

I am a big movie fanatic. Or to keep it more polished, I wish to use the word PASSIONATE. I love gathering information, inspirations or whatsoever it matters the most for me from the movies I watched. Here is the various learnings or to say, huh.., things to be learnt by me from the movies I watched. Be it a new word or a scientific name and had I not known this earlier, I have started this post to pen it all here.
