I believe machines would be very mathematical in their solution. Having the humans free would mean having trouble, humans have the need to dominate. They evaluate a solution which is accepted by 99% of the human race. As long as the human race is given what they want in the form of a dream, with the illusion of choice, they don't provide any trouble. Rather ...

Here is an illustrated version of the dream levels and kicks, helps explaining how they use the kicks to get out of a dream level: Inception Illustrated And Explained ...

I've felt that it is not so much the overview of the damage as much as it symbolizes the damage itself. The reason he keeps it in the drawer is because he doesn't want to remember the damage. However, it is impossible to just drop that altogether

Stay out of my territory. I personally believe in this episode SE2EP10 Over, Walt completely embraced his dark side and chose to be Heisenberg rather than a family person. IMDB plot: Walt's cancer has greatly improved. Time to celebrate. Meanwhile Jesse tries to meet his new girlfriend's father. Look at the facts, Walt's health condition is ...

The way I took it as that both universes exist side by side (and not subservient to each other) and incidents in one universe affect the other. The causality traffic might seem a bit heavy sided towards Finn's universe being the dominant one, but on closer look you see that this isn't completely true. The Man Upstairs' LEGO policies have certainly shaped ...

I believe Emmet's movements can be explained in a similar way as in Toy Story. The toys each have an individual personality and autonomy, but those personalities and autonomous actions are affected by the person playing with the toys. This would mean that a large portion of the movie consisted of the characters acting in and of themselves. This makes ...

Sam Gold is the Demiurge. A greek/Gnostic term for the insane "god" who runs this slice of the universe. It is the god of the old testament. Not the Heavenly Father that JC speaks of. A piece of "Gold" lives within each one of us... it is not our friend and it prevents us from ascending the Kabala Tree, so we may reunite with the One True God of Love.

TL;DR: The close up of hands highlighted the amount of personal contact they had with one another and how exhilarating and attractive both Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy found it. Long Answer: Pride and Prejudice took place in the Georgian era and in both it and the following Victoria era, contact between gentleman and ladies would have been much, much more ...

I agree that that feels very incomplete, and I think it is an oversimplification of the deeper meanings and metaphorical relationships of their hands, and of the connections that are being made between the characters. Yes, the "hand" is "won" in marriage, but even more deeply rooted to the metaphorical aspect of their hands are the notions of labour, ...

Even though a definite proof -- in form of a confirmation by the Nolans or something similar -- is still missing, I think there is at least enough evidence to conclude that this connection is not coincidental, even if that evidence is only circumstantial. First of all, you are definitely not the only one drawing that connection. There are various articles ...

The scene is, according to audio commentary on the DVD, an homage to the Diane Arbus photograph Boy with a Grenade: The usage of this homage is actually another homage, to Stanley Kubrick and, in particular, The Shining. Both stories deal with self-destructive writers, as well as involving scenes of madness and delusion. It can also be argued that the ...

The movie "300 Rise of an Empire" isn't about accuracy but about action. It is inspired by greek history but it is not a historic movie. Even from the prequel the movie "300" Zack Snyder tried to create a movie that doesn't obey any law, physical, logical or historical. I personally like the movie but we must not try to explain it logically and in depth ...

TL;DR The Third Man's iconic zither theme was chosen by the film's director Carol Reed because it compliments the dialogue without overpowering it; the tune is exotic yet local and matches the movie's atmosphere because it evokes the mood in post-war Vienna and is elusive, charming and mysterious just like the city and the titular character himself. Long ...

I think @System Down has summed up all the imported points. Just to add something though, here is an interview from Time Magazine the shows co-creator, Mark Guggenheim, where he discussed the change of direction in Season 2 compared to Season 1: TIME: Were there different sorts of things you wanted to accomplish with Season 2 compared with Season 1? ...

Here's My Opinion: First: know that in TV series usually nothing is obvious from the begining, USUALLY, as for the CW series Supernatural, I have heard producers were only making 4 seasons, but they continued when they saw the unexpected number of fans and followers. and Second: there are so many alterations to characters, like Slade Wilson and Oliver's ...

TL;DR: Kubrick wanted fans who really desired its meaning to either interpret their own meaning from the film, or read Burgess' book to derive the meaning the author intended. Long Answer: In an article with the New Yorker, Anthony Burgess, the author of A Clockwork Orange described how the name came to him: I first heard the expression “as queer as a ...

Antoine Fuqua and Gerard Butler both discussed this in a video interview, showing they were definitely aware of the Die Hard connection and they both loved Bruce Willis' works. In fact, they viewed it as the daddy of all action films. Paraphrasing from the interview, they both drew distinct differences between Die Hard and Olympus Has Fallen, discussing how ...

I don't have any evidence that the 400 Blows was influenced by the wonderful Catcher in the Rye and unfortunately I don't think any evidence is forthcoming unless some interview with Truffaut appears. However, I do know that 400 Blows' french title was "Les Quatre Cents Coups", which means to raise hell. This coincides rather nicely with Truffaut's own ...

SlashFilm suggested the following connection: The title [of the episode] is a direct reference to the song “A Horse with No Name,” by the band America, and Walt is shown singing the lyrics at the ep’s beginning and end. On both occasions he’s blindly visited by two threats in the clashing forms of law and chaos. It’s a great use of music because, ...
