In the land of Westeros seasons can last many years. The phrase, "Winter is Coming", is a constant reminder that there will be a time when you will not be able to grow food, people will die of both frost and famine, and, above all, time is fleeting. It is the motto of the Stark Clan. Another common phrase, at least in the books and in the first season, ...

Never take comic book deaths seriously and since this movie is based on comics they can do the same. Loki, Phil Coulson, Fury and Bucky all came back from death, so why not Quicksilver? The Inhumans film is coming and Quicksilver has a big relationship with them, (from having an Inhuman wife and child and even being member of them too), so he might get ...

They are not huffing paint. It has nothing to do with "huffing." They are spray painting their "grills" (teeth) so they will be (as they say in the film) "shiny and chrome" when they go to their Valhalla. Remember, in their Valhalla, they ride forever. It's a kind of statement...it has nothing to do with any toxic or intoxicant effect.

Ok so from what I gathered, they're effectively 'huffing paint', in order to make their suicide easier to go through with. It's narcotic effects make them more willing and geared up to 'enter Valhalla'. Notice how both Nux and the other War Boy both widen their eyes and smile maniacally after they've been sprayed. The visual element is likely a reference to ...

As per the Fringe Wikia article on the opening sequence, each color indicates a different setting and the words mentioned throughout the title sequence are the particular areas of science that will be looked at during that episode and/or series of episodes sharing an introduction. In addition to this, the text "Observers are here" flashes during every ...

He's talking about "Market Panic". If a lot of people start dumping stock, other brokers assume someone has some inside knowledge and they will start dumping stock too. Works the same way in reverse; if a lot of people start buying, others will buy too assuming someone knows something. In those first few cases, they're the "smoke". Once it takes off, ...

As the other excellent answers have shown the movies are rich of various overarching themes, be they political or philosophical, about a hero or his city. But on a very personal level they are about a man, in particular Bruce Wayne's struggle to cope with the tragedy he experienced as a child and to overcome the resulting grief, fear and anger that ...

He had an incredibly simple world view and goal. He idolised Joe (see how excited he was when "He looked at me!!!" earlier in the chase. He knew he was dying, and wanted to go out in a glorious way (hoping also to impress Joe in the process). All his life, to him and the others around him, this seemed to be everything life was about - glory fighting on the ...

Because he saw Splendid, Joe's heavily pregnant wife, get killed by the actions of Joe and the other War Boys, and immediately feels guilty for being part of her death. He tells this to Capable when she comes to check on him, and it's the main reason behind him changing sides. Also, factor in his desire to please Joe and 'be carried into Valhalla' by him, ...

There is no relationship between Edge of Tomorrow and Scientology other than Tom Cruise's performance. The film is based on a Japanese novel/manga called All You Need Is Kill. Some sites claim that there is a correlation between Scientological dogma and the plot: One more thing: if I didn't know any better, I might read Edge of Tomorrow as Cruise's ...

My interpretation of the ending was a little different. I saw this as karma. Earlier in the movie, Norman refused to shoot a Nazi soldier who was begging for his life to be spared. Norman chose to die over shooting this man. I think in the end, Norman looked at the soldier with pleading eyes and the Nazi soldier let him go because he, like Norman, knew there ...

The message is straight forward and twofold: No matter how bad things are, a single person or single idea can make a difference. This contrasts with most heroes (e.g. Superman) which follows a basic religious story (omnipotent being arrives and looks over lowly mankind, protecting us from ourselves). In Batman the symbol is the thing, and it is bigger ...

Now first of all, we have to take a look at the functionality of the costume (or rather suit), which obviously is the creation of a genius scientist and inventor. In fact Iron Man is pretty much the Marvel equivalent of Batman (though, less brooding and more self-centered, and with a war trauma as incentive instead of the loss of his parents), whose strength ...

In the Wikipedia article, the interpretation of that scene is quite similar to your assumption that it generally shows the development of Trelkovsky's mental state: "He becomes hostile and paranoid in his day-to-day environment (snapping at his friends, slapping a child in a park) and his mental state progressively deteriorates." Correspondingly, TV Tropes ...

I think maybe people are looking too much into the spray. Mad Max IS visual storytelling at its best. The spray could be their ritual before they commit suicide (enter Valhalla) and perhaps they use it to mark their bodies so they can be identified when they enter their next life. But I also like the idea that it gives them a quick high (i imagine inhaling ...

When you drink Turkish coffee, the coffee sediment that is at the bottom of the cup is used to predict/foreseen the future somehow (Turkish custom) :) so when the first time she served him a coffee she saw in the coffee sediment that he will return for her. That is the reason why she was not surprised. And also sweet coffee means that you like the person you ...

The issue of the upside-down flag has been answered elsewhere, so to expand Shiz Z.'s answer on the Lincoln Memorial reference, I would say that the blood in Underwood's hand suggests that he's a ruthless, maybe violent character. He's in the place of a former United States president, so he probably wants to be the president himself. Lincoln symbolizes (as ...
