TL,DR: There was an encoded message sent from a spy in Bletchley Park to the Russians. Matthew 7:7 was used as the encrypting code. The only way to decrypt this message is to know that the key used to create the cipher was Matt 7:7. Which was information that was related to Turing in the bar by Hugh. When Turing was back in the hut he saw Allens Bible was ...

TL;DR The replicants' eye glow is meant to reveal their mechanical artificiality to us (and by extension, their lack of a human soul), as if their eyes are merely lenses reflecting light. Long answer Eyes are the windows to the soul. Unsurprisingly, then, eye symbolism is rife throughout Blade Runner: the Voight-Kampff machine focusing on the iris to test ...

The movie is a love story about 2 people who didn't love each other at first, but eventually grew to love each other. The point of the movie was based on the concept of; "Can a man and a woman ever really be just friends". However, at its heart it's a romance movie that was written following director Rob Reiner's divorce. The interviews were actually ...

Good question, made me check my copy of the original German novel. It actually does provide some further insight and supports a combination of your first two guesses: cats cannot easily talk to people and there is a religious taboo against it. If Pascal speaks the truth, he found it hard but there is no indication that he needed anything but determination, ...

Those badges are Special Warfare insignia, also known informally as the "SEAL pin". In real life, at Medal of Honor recipient Michael Monsoor's funeral, the attending SEALs pounded their pins into his coffin. It's unclear how widespread a SEAL practice this really was/is, but the media and movie attention it's gotten seems to have made it more widespread.

The badges are the badges SEALs (aka: Special Warfare Insignia or SEAL Trident) earn when they graduate from school and become full fledged SEALs. To nail them into the coffin by hand is a complete sign of respect to a fallen comrade.

Tough question for a tough movie. I admit that the movie also left me quite puzzled. What helped me to understand it better to a large degree was Chris Stuckmann's analysis, which I think is pretty consistent. ...

It's to show him that he's been following him for a while, and knows a lot of details about his life.

In your analogy, Fate intervened giving both Russia and the US the nuclear weapon at the same time. In the show, the men shot and injured each other, resulting in both being disabled from shooting again. I do not see your analogy extending to this ending. If the two had each seen that the other had the bottle and decided not to shoot, maybe the analogy would ...

You didn't get the correct quote; according to the wikia it is: When Bates asks if it works, he flippantly replies "Well, as I make it and I advertise it, is it likely I'd say no?" The line is particularly relevant in context: Mr. Bates: I saw this advertisement for a limp corrector. What does it do exactly? Salesman: It corrects limps. ...

There's a scene in the film, in which Wesley tells Russell, about his relationship with Russell's former girlfriend Lena: "we may not have that fire, that flame, but what we have, its worth it." Wesley and Lena's relationship seems indicative of the title's meaning, and of its implications for the film's omnipresent motif of post-Iraq, post-recession ...

The title of the book refers to how Sheriff Bell comes to understand that he is no match for the current and irrepressible evil that the present world had to offer. Through Bell following Moss and Chigurh in hopes to save Moss and capture Chigurh, he must see every gory act of violence and evil that Chigurh leaves in his path. This is a hard and emotionally ...

i think, the victims were killed by the corresponding deadly sin. the fat guy died by eating, the whore by sex, the junkie by lying in bed. in the last scene, Tracy died by Doe's jealousy hence "envy" then Doe died by Mills' hatred hence "wrath"
