This mindset may lead them to make some rash decisions such as buying followers or spending too much on ads. And it may look impressive to investors to have gained over 1,000 followers in under a month, but savvy investors know there's more to it than that.

4. Ratchet and Clank

"I loved playing this game when I was a kid! I'm so stoked that they're going to make a movie out of it!"

3. Henchmen

"Like, haven't you ever wondered what it would be like to be a bad guy's henchman? I dunno, I just really love Minions, so this should be kinda similar, right?"

2. Zoolander 2

"My brother, Randy, recently showed me the first one and I really liked it. I'm excited to see where they can go with a second one."

1. Doctor Strange

"Benedict Cumberbatch is my hero! I will watch anything with him in it! I haven't even read the comics, but I don't care. This movie is going to be amazing!"

Harder reportedly highly anticipates many things besides just movies. For example, he highly anticipates getting a girlfriend soon, entering college, and eventually starting a career as a famous Hollywood director. More on those stories as they develop.
