ASIANS CAN ACTUALLY READ MINDS!!!!!!!!!!!
They can hear, and see what you're visually thinking. This is the absolute complete truth!!!!!

Asians hide their mind reading abilities by a lot of them having completely expressionless faces so they don't accidentally show facial expressions when people think things they don't like, find funny, astonishing, etc, and Asians segregate so their not nearly as susceptible to that happening.
Asians also segregate, and are untalkative to avoid accidentally saying things that are similar to what people are thinking and going to say.

Try thinking, and visually picturing things that are as wild as you can when you are around Asians, and look for Asians who give people dirty/particular looks for what appears to be for completely no reason.

PLEASE SPREAD THE MESSAGE!!!!! THE WORLD NEEDS TO FIND THIS OUT!!!!!

AND HE WAS SAVING THAT BACON
#34 - curtisbentley (04/30/2013) [-]
Thing that pissed me off about this film is that it skips the three years he spent struggling to survive, watching every single person he ever knew turn and jumps to the future where a series of dramatic events rapidly unfold for the movie's sake.

Sam dies.
Bitch shows up.
He dies.
End.

All in about four/five days time, despite the fact he had managed to survive for over 900 days prior. How great would it have been if they made the first movie the breakout and the second moving finding the cure?
#119 to #34 - John Cena (05/01/2013) [-]
Lets also remeber that they never explained why he not effected when they bite him like they did in the original novel saying how he was bitten by infected bat which had the virus which he only got sick for afew days and haves an immunity from the creatures cuz of that.
#125 to #34 - John Cena (05/01/2013) [-]
They were actually going to make a prequel to the movie detailing the exact thing you are asking for but it got canned
User avatar #66 to #34 - sebthebrony (05/01/2013) [-]
it's all relative. That's like saying "How could he have died if he spent 45 years alive? He died in 3 days."

Why has the internet only just realised this? The film has been out for awhile. Did the elders of the internet finally watch it?

I actually forgot about the dog death scene. I just remember Will Smith being cool for a hour or so.

First watched that movie when I was like 9.
I didn't gave it a second chance for like 3 years. I was literally bawling through the entire scene and we had to turn it off.

Can't remember, but was it ever explained how the mannequins moved?
#144 to #5 - assrumps (05/01/2013) [-]
Did anyone else notice that the mannequin's head moves when he drives by. I wasn't sure if it was part of the movie or a glitch or what but I noticed it.
#25 to #5 - Tormound (04/30/2013) [-]
Originally the vampires turned out to be actually sentient and smart and that mannequin was a trap laid out for Neville, but due to executive meddling they thought the ending where it showed them to be sentient and Neville living was too confusing to the audience so they forced a change.
#113 to #25 - John Cena (05/01/2013) [-]
Also in the novel nerville wasn't black and the woman was also one the vampire mutant people which she explains to him when she knocks him out that her people are now able to be in the sun light for a few extend hours before it can harm them. Furthermore, her people are afraid of nerville since he's killing in search of a cure but the woman says she's not afraid of him. Which she then gives him pills to kill himself so he won't feel pain after his death and so in his last minutes he looks at the crowd of vampire people in his jail cell and slowly shallows the pills and he then says in his mind. I'm the last of my kind as a new race of beings will take over, I'll only be a forgot memory of the past. A tale for I am legend.

Probably the most hilarious scene from any movie ever.
#39 to #8 - astayal ONLINE (04/30/2013) [-]
I think you either mistyped your comment or got the film wrong as it was the mutant/zombie/vampires that moved the manikins as their own trap. Which he fell for and ended up hung upside down until sunset when they can come out.
#71 to #39 - sweateagle (05/01/2013) [-]
lustraDD's comment was deeper.
User avatar #116 to #39 - burningsmurfs (05/01/2013) [-]
Yeah that is the the feeling I got from it as well since that also cements in the they are smarter than he thought theme that they ended up going with. I mean I know he was freaking out but I never even thought the "he's going nuts and forgot thing" was supposed to be implied.
#187 to #39 - John Cena (05/01/2013) [-]
doesn't make sense, if they were that smart they would have raped him in his house by now
#26 to #8 - John Cena (04/30/2013) [-]
Did he move it to bait the zombies and forget OR did the zombies move the mannequin to bait him? They are fairly smart in this movie.
#138 to #8 - John Cena (05/01/2013) [-]
Actually, I think the point of the mannequins being moved is that the creatures were getting smarter and picking up will smith's tricks.
Other words- they watched him do it the first time, so they copied him.
User avatar #234 to #138 - lustraDD (05/01/2013) [-]
in the book, yes. not in the film.
The films displays them as feral, and dumb. They don't get smarter, just united under one dominant leader
User avatar #61 to #8 - vvriotvv (05/01/2013) [-]
I always thought the Zom zoms managed to set a trap for him... man I am dumb.
User avatar #75 to #61 - guymandude (05/01/2013) [-]
No you're not dumb, you are correct. Remember how the "zombies" (they're actually not quite zombies in this movie, less so in the book) were standing under the building/archway thing with the mutated attack dogs (that were collared and chained btw, just showing that they are decently intelligent), waiting for the sun to set so that they could attack him while he was hanging there?

They set it up for him because earlier in the movie, he set a trap for them.
User avatar #164 to #75 - spysappinmysasha (05/01/2013) [-]
I am pretty sure the film referred to them as "Vampires".

I mean, I dont remember much from the film but couldnt they infect you? And they also couldnt go out in the sun or else they would burn? sounds pretty Vampire to me.
User avatar #169 to #164 - guymandude (05/01/2013) [-]
They are definitely closer to vampires than zombies, but I don't think they ever explicitly say if the creatures are one or the other in the movie or the book.

I'm not sure if the creatures can spread the virus themselves or not. In the movie, they make it clear that the infection first spread like a normal disease's pandemic. I know Will Smith's character was never infected, but he was immune anyway.
User avatar #170 to #169 - spysappinmysasha (05/01/2013) [-]
I forgot, how did his Dog get infected?
User avatar #173 to #170 - guymandude (05/01/2013) [-]
Oh wait, I remember how it works now. Will Smith's character says in one of his audio log - things towards the beginning that humans were getting infected by the virus that had become airborne. Then he said that animals were unable to contract it from the air, only by direct contact. So that's why the dog was infected once it was bitten by the infected dogs.

So I guess you were right that it could be spread by the creatures themselves, but since a person would potentially be infected once they took a breath in that city, they would turn (or die) before ever being bitten.
User avatar #182 to #169 - ChumLeee (05/01/2013) [-]
In the book, they're referred to as "dark seekers", seeing as they can't survive in the light. Also, they aren't zombies or vampires, as they are not undead. They're still living humans, infected with a virus that messed with their genetic code. For those who don't know, the virus was caused from the doctor's cure for cancer.
User avatar #64 to #8 - megusters (05/01/2013) [-]
I don't understand, zombies? Or vampires? They ate human flesh, but couldn't go out in the light, were pale, and grew fangs. What are they really?
User avatar #69 to #64 - guymandude (05/01/2013) [-]
The original ending of the movie properly (and correctly) showed that the creatures were intelligent, more like vampires, knew how to speak, and had created their own society. The idea of that scene is that Will Smith's character didn't know how intelligent they were when he set that other trap for them earlier in the movie. But the creatures watched what he did and used the same method against him. They used the manikin to draw him out, like bait. And as far as he knew, there was no way that the manikin could have moved without him moving them.

The book that this movie is based on had the correct ending, which explained their intelligence. In fact, the original ending is the whole reason why the story is called "I am Legend." I liked the movie, but I was really disappointed that they changed the ending to one more expected by popular culture.

#10 to #8 - pocoyothegreat (04/30/2013) [-]
The (not) funny thing is, I Am Legend is a novel about GODDAMN VAMPIRES. Even if it sets some of the bases of the survival horror, it's not about zombies like most of modern, chain-produced survival horrors . And the girl plays the guy, hard. The ending is a great twist, and the story has a great existencial reflexion behind.
But what do you get if Hollywood puts their filthy hands on some major literature? A ******** sugarcoated unoriginal action zombie movie.
User avatar #11 to #10 - lustraDD (04/30/2013) [-]
Probably because society today prefers to use their eyes rather than their brain? explosions, shooting and chase scenes are would be seen as alot better by the general population than 'existencial reflexion' i also don't see why you took the time to make this rage comment. Who's it aimed at, me? because i've read the book. And the film was also about zombies, not vampires.
User avatar #37 to #11 - viscerys (04/30/2013) [-]
Indeed. My friend hated Dark Souls because you had to think about it.
User avatar #12 to #11 - pocoyothegreat (04/30/2013) [-]
Are you a Hollywood producer? Did you pay to watch the movie? It wasn't aimed at you specifically, I don't see why you would be taking it personally.
"And the film was also about zombies, not vampires." - "also" implies that more than one thing is such, and here only one thing is about zombies.
User avatar #17 to #12 - fireprincess (04/30/2013) [-]
It didn't really seem like he took it personally. He was just responding to you. And if it did seem like he did, it would probably because your comment was a reply to his comment....

#209 to #8 - John Cena (05/01/2013) [-]
That and the lead infected character was also moving them around. He for sure used at least one for bait against Will Smith. Or did Will really trip his own trap like a dumbass?
User avatar #15 to #5 - kolimm **User deleted account** (04/30/2013) [-]

#89 - tvfreakuk (05/01/2013) [-]
They really ****** up the whole premise, and use of symbolism with the ending where he dies.
The reason it's called "I Am Legend" is because he's meant to realize that the vampires aren't evil, they just want to survive and they only attack him because they care about their friends and family that he has been stealing and experimenting on and killing.
He is meant to be a legend among the creatures as "the thing that comes in the night" the same way those creatures would have been exactly that for us humans, and to them he's the evil one, it's meant to make you think about the fact you've been rooting for this guy the entire film, and it turns out he's wrong. And the symbolism I mentions is simply a butterfly. Butterflies are used constantly throughout this because it's meant to be that these creatures are a new evolutionary step (though a man made one) and it's like a metamorphosis of human evolution. They just want to survive like any other species.

Then, it got ruined and they decided it should end with a giant explosion instead, killing all the creatures, and saying that his "legend" is that he's a hero that found a cure and sacrificed himself for humans.
Way to cater to the lowest common denominator...

User avatar #57 to #19 - Tyranitar (04/30/2013) [-]
He didn't want his dog to go through that

The dog was already beginning to turn, despite it's own best attempts to fight it (it was already going mad and trying to bite him)

He had no idea when, if ever, he would develop a cure

He was injured, and had no way to detain and take care of an insane animal of that size and strength

The dog being infected symbolized him losing the last thread he had to the past and his family being severed by the disease, and he couldn't stand it.

THIS IS THE REAL ENDING*

No, really.
See, movie theaters will actually test how a populace will see the movie to see if there's any revisions they need to make.
I Am Legend did this. Only the populace they did it with was the residents of Kentucky, I think.
They didn't like the ending, so they changed the ending, so what you see in the theater is actually the alternate, and the "alternate" is actually the real ending.
User avatar #112 to #111 - fffffffuuuuuuuuuuu (05/01/2013) [-]

I personally think this ending is better. Every ending where Will doesn't die is better.

Yeah, the ending fits more with the movie's original intention, which tvfreakuk hit the nail on the head with explaining
www.funnyjunk.com/funny_pictures/4565090/Checkmate/89#89

Instead they devolved the ending to having the mutants be mindless overaggressive monsters, and caved into the cliche of just about every generic zombie movie, with the black guy sacrificing himself to save someone to boot.

They were based on vampires, but the infection spread kinda like a zombie virus.

They are vampires in the book. I always saw them as vampires and as such, I didn't enjoy the movie as much as I should have.
