This scene does not contain a lap dance
« on: October 27, 2017, 13:53 »
I've seen people saying this on CinemaSins videos.

What is it supposed to mean? Why do people say it?

To be honest, I don't know the meaning of a lot of the things they say.

Could someone give me a list of the things people frequently say on CinemaSins videos and tell me what they mean and when to say it?

I'm thinking, maybe I could do the same thing with episodes of Star Wars The Clone Wars and Rebels.

Its a joke. Basically, theyll say it anytime a scene is loaded with sexual tension or otherwise looks like it could lead to a lap dance (which, by the way, is exactly what it sounds like - someone dancing on your lap in a sexual kind of way). The joke is that he wants to see a lap dance, and so gives the movie a sin counter for not giving him one.

I hear Deus Ex Machina a lot as well.
I don't know what that means, or why people say it either.

Deus ex machina is basically a cop out ending in a story. Like if the characters get into an impossible to escape problem and, rather than the writer coming up with a clever way for them to escape, instead has some random, nonsensical thing happen that allows them to get away.
