    I've learnt the process involved within the making of movies.

    I've learnt that novels don't translate too well into movies, as to the readers' satisfaction.

    I've learnt that sometimes the movie surpasses the novel.

    I've learnt that original thought can be transposed through film.

    I've learnt many, many facts, before which, I might not have.

    I've learnt dramatic effect and characterisation, being that I was witness to film long before I studied or partook of theatre.

    And many, many other things besides, Zed.

    What did you learn?

    I've learned that slovenly doofuses can end up with hot chicks.

    I've learned that secret agents can take multiple bullet wounds and still get the bad guy.

    I've learned that the monster under the bed really does exist.

    I've learned that animals can talk and have rich interior lives.

    I've learned that cars can take much more abuse than I previously suspected.
    This may be due to the fact that they are benevolent aliens- which I didn't know before.

    I've learned that popcorn is more expensive than saffron and 64oz. Cokes make you pee a lot.

    There are definitely random pieces of information that can be learned from movies. And from TV shows. But nothing substantial that would qualify as something useful or life saving. Then again, most education can't provide that either...

    I've learned that artists tend to be under appreciated,you are only as good as your last endeavor and addiction to plastic surgery(both real and celluloid) is at once both amusing and horrific.
