Last Sunday, Twitter user @jazz_inmypants kicked off a thread asking the community to share movie details that bothered them that simply are not talked about enough. He first shared his own: “naming the ant in A Bugs Life ‘Flick’ is super insensitive to ants that have died from flicking. It’s like if they named Bambi Shotgun.”
