Partly, it's miles away - not something southerners think about. He's far too cynical for solemn vows, and too much of an independent-minded loner to choose to huddle for warmth with hundreds of 'brothers'. But mostly, it'd be unthinkable due to pride: Except among the Starks, taking the black is associated with failure or disgrace. The only southerners who ...

To quote series creator Vince Gilligan: We had this instinct that it would be helpful to have something distinctive about Walt’s product. And we figured it should be nice and clear and not cloudy that a proper product would be. We thought yellow would be a terrible choice because it would remind people of urine, and we figured green would be an odd ...

Johnny Utah (Keanu Reeves) from the movie Point Break was a cocky, over-confident, off-the-cuff kind of guy. I believe his character played college Football but was injured in a championship game, so he opted for a career in law enforcement. I would say he was referenced because of his attitude of being self-important. It was more of a put-down than a ...

The answer to your question is: Tarantino himself has remarked: "In this story, cinema changes the world, and I fucking love that idea!" The reality is; There was never an assassination attempt on Hitler in a theater. Though much of the film loosely follows history, the movie itself is not meant to be historical or biographical. Tarantino just ...

It's impossible to answer this question in general, because (as already stated in comments) the answer is: it depends on the movie/show. Regarding the House of Cards: the time doesn't stop. You can see it clearly in the scenes, where Frank looks into camera. Regarding the scenes where he talks it's a bit more tricky to tell because this usually happens when ...

So, as far as I can tell, your question is, "Why are people not more disturbed by the depressing implications of this apparently happy ending?" My answer is that you are partially correct, the ending is not a happy one. However, perhaps the reason that you haven't seen anyone argue against the idea that the ending is a "happy" one is that no one is ...

The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance It's the title of Tabitha Dickinson's review about the play. She's a critic, initially she detests Riggan and his play but after actually watching it, she turns in a positive review praising Riggan's performance and his play. A similar question was asked here and there's an excellent answer by a user. Tabitha ...

I'll make some separate points: First, I like your analogy story! Riggan's suicide attempt may look like just that to the audience but to Tabitha, it may very well be a sacrifice for art. This is where your analogy doesn't work: stage is a performance art and the suicide attempt can be seen as a part of it. Even if you stretch your analogy to make the ...

Walt's meth is said to be the purest of them all, ~99.1% pure. Gale goes on to guarantee Gus a purity of 96 percent for his own product. Walt’s sample was 99 percent pure and “maybe even a touch beyond that." Its also called as "Blue Sky". And in Judaism blue is called as “pavement of sapphire, like the very sky for purity." So it looked to me a homage to ...

Q. How is this not intensely, disturbingly, distressingly horrifying? A1. Because it's just a movie. A2. Because the movie tells the story of just one pathetically approval-obsessed person -- not the story of the human condition. It's a cautionary tale: "Don't be like Birdman."

I like to think this is a metaphor about Riggan's fall. Riggan is a part of a powerful and massive planet, but he left it (Planet Birdman) and he does not know to what he belongs. While he falls, he is struggling and tries to hang on to anything around (friends, family). The bright light generated by an Asteroid could be his show, or his lost career). He ...

Quite simply... "Interstellar" is not a science-fiction movie. It is a metaphor for the bond of love between a father and his daughter. When Nolan initially interviewed McConaughey and Zimmer for the lead role and musical score, he told them nothing about the plot of the movie. Instead, he discussed the love within family, particularly between a father ...

While the show definitely changed a lot of the details about the Green Arrow, it seems to be based off the new comic series ( "New 52" or "New Earth" I believe). In the comics Oliver, undergoes a similar change, so I believed the writers always planned the shows change from season 1 into 2.

When she defeated the Alpha she got that pre-cognition and relived a day over and over until it eventually ran out of juice (since she couldn't find the Omega(?) Source), she had time to figure out how to fight those things --- but it was humans first victory (and thus they made a big deal about it). Joan was said to be given "visions" which led her to ...

It may be much more than a simple recording device. As shown, time moves differently inside, yet all of Jerry's watches are perfectly synchronized. We know they were taken from different versions of Jerry at different times, so if they were functioning as normal watches, you'd have wildly different times on each watch, as well as much more time having ...
