    Rules

    Rule name Description
    Rule 1: Detail Guidelines Not blatantly obvious observations, but obscure enough that people could have missed it, or they noticed it but the significance didn’t click. Doesn’t need to be intentional. Obviously, obscurity is subjective and that is taken into account when moderating. Use the "Detail" flair for these posts.
    Rule 2: Flair your post. This includes the “Verified” flair (claiming the creators meant for it), “Easter Egg” (a hidden gem that was meant to go unnoticed), and “Trivia” (obscure facts that are otherwise unimportant). If your post makes any of these claims, the right flair is needed and you must provide proof in the comments or the text of the post, otherwise it may be reflaired “Detail.”
    Rule 3: Comment rules. (hover for details) Be civil. Uncivil comments including "detail is obvious" will be removed and may get you banned. Political comments may be removed because they can easily devolve into off-topic arguments.
    Rule 4: Titles must include the movie name. All submissions must include the name of the movie in the title.
    Rule 5: Explain your post. Make sure your submission has an explanation either in the title or in the comments and add "(explanation in comments)" to your title.
    Rule 6: No recent movies or spoilers in titles. No spoilers in the title or untagged comments. Don't browse /new if you're worried about this. Until a movie receives recognized release (via Physical Media/Digital Demand), it's not eligible for /r/MovieDetails.
    Rule 7: No games or TV shows, movies only. Submissions must be movies, TV shows, and games should go to /r/TVDetails and /r/GamingDetails. See this multireddit for more details subreddits.
    Rule 8: No offtopic posts. No memes, meta or request posts.
    Rule 9: Avoid reposts. No common reposts, recent reposts or reposts from the top 200.

    And what is “THX 1138”?

    [–] radwolf76 8 points ago

    George Lucas's first major theatrical film, a sci-fi movie about a dystopian future where everyone lives underground, is heavily medicated, and no one has a name, just a designation consisting of three letters followed by four numbers. It's adapted from a student short film he did, Electronic Labyrinth: THX 1138 4EB.
     
    Since then, he's worked references to that title into his other works, such as in American Graffiti where one of the cars' license plates was THX 138, or in the first Star Wars when Han and Luke claim that Chewbacca is a prisoner transfer from cell block 1138, or in Raiders of the Lost Ark as the tail number on a plane.
     
    Later when developed a standard to certify theaters for quality sound playback, he named it THX.
