My reading is similar (but not the same) as G Blake Meike's. The ring symbolises a more noble/idealist Frank, taking it off isn't to allow him to toughen his knuckles, but is him "taking the gloves off", and entering the bare knuckle fight. The dialogue with Walker is a a Freudian thing, his humanity (or conscience) warning Walker that the fight is now on ...

Pretty sure there is a soliloquy delivered by the Sheriff in the film where he describes all of English Bob's "achievements" as frauds. They happened all right, but should be attributed to other people. Bob claims credit to build his "fame" as a gunfighter.

There is an awesome answer, on Reddit, here. At one point, Frank explains to Tusk why he taps his ring, when he leaves a table or a lectern. To quote from the Reddit posting by thisisntnamman: Frank: "Something my father taught me. It's meant to harden your knuckles so you don't break them if you get into a fight. It also has the added benefit of ...

Don Corleone wanted nothing to do with the drug trade. As is apparent from this meeting. When Sonny spoke up to Sollozzo and says, "Now wait a minute. You're telling me you can guarantee...?" The way Sonny delivered the line and his actions while doing clearly indicate that Sonny (and maybe the Corleones) are interested in the proposal, seeing as he ...

No reputation for comments. Before you start making conclusions, there needs to be agreement on assumptions. The most important being how Cage is traveling back in time. My interpretation is that the Omega still retains its power to reset, it was not lost as some have claimed. When Cage died the first time, his blood mixed with the Alphas and he was reset ...

I believe that it puts him in a universe where he wouldn't have been tased in the first place, thus placing him where he WOULD have woken up, in the helicopter.

A boy lied to his father. Not really such an uncommon thing. The fact is, Neil's father is spending a lot of money on a private school so that one day his son will become some type of leader, or at least have a "respectable" (my quotes) job which will be financially beneficial. He's not paying that kind of money for his son to become an actor. However, ...

WHY SATURN? The "planet" Zac wakes up on in the final scene is obviously a moon of Saturn. Duh. OK, so which one? And why Saturn? You have to learn abou the saturn-moon-matrix, and its relatinship to electronic signals (hence the "effect" and the focus on the antenna that has to be destroyed to turn off the signal - from Saturn). What has happened is that ...

I figure all people are weird to some degree. We are all related as well. I think the above analysis is mostly correct. I had never looked at that or thought about that. My idea was that Minnesota , being heavily populated with scandanavians, were observed by the Coen brothers throughout their childhoods. Having lived in Minneapolis and being mostly of ...

Omega's blood was seeping into Cage, which allows cage to reset the day right from the beginning. Everything that happened before Cage got down the helicopter could not happen because Omega died and the situation will change when Omega dies. Fact: When something dies by e.g guns or grenades, blood will seep out from the wound. For Omega's blood, it seeped ...

The following has already been brought up in a comment, though from a user who already vanished, and might just be a little addition to the other interesting answers, but it definitely deserves its own answer. There is actually this excellent article about analysing the clothing colors of many of the major characters in Breaking Bad, which also presents a ...

HUGE SPOILERS, DONT READ IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN THE SERIES TILL FELINA Breaking Bad is about 'Breaking Bad'. A Chemistry teacher who doesn't earn much but is perfect at what he does, loves his family and has cancer and is about to die. So, he kind of goes on a journey, a quest where he will do what he does best to earn for the people he love the most who will ...

Heavy influences. If you can't see them you aren't paying attention to the details of the stories. The movie especially plays out like a Mass Effect movie, even ending like Mass Effect where the captain fights his way through a battle between the Alliance and Reever fleets to send a signal out. Only big difference is Malcom runs from the Alliance where ...

Just another thought, which probably is nothing more than an interesting connection:

Alpha death is just an autonomic response for a day reset, but I think the Omega blood gave Cage the ability to DECIDE when to wake up. He subconsciously wanted to wake up earlier than being handcuffed at the base, so he woke up in the helicopter. When the Omega resets time everything returns to how it was -- except the memories of the alphas. I think this ...

Lots of complicated theories... 1) We know very little about how the alien technology works, including time travel. We just have a limited set of observations. 2) We have no observations of, or reason to have any understanding of how an omega's death will affect time. As such, Cage is sent back as he is because that is what we observe. Our ...

How about this theory? I think it's a bit different to and might be hard to understand, based on how we perceive the story as a linear movie: After watching the movie, I still wondered how one or more entities would be able to somehow alter time in the whole universe to create the resets. A bit like The Butterfly Effect? Nah, didn't really make any sense to ...

It is because Cage is taken back in time not in accordance with himself but with the Omega. So, when the Omega dies, the blood gets on Cage, but the Omega was changing time from the beginning of Operation Downfall, where Cage threatens the General. So, it reset time from where the Omega was changing it, not Cage.

The movie isn't an analogy to chess. The movie is about the illusion that imprisons every one of us. Deep beneath the films violence, blood and grit, lurks a spiritual and enlightening message - a message echoed throughout time by revered figures such as Buddha and Bodhidharma, a message also echoed in Kabbalah (which is probably where Guy Ritchie drew his ...

The movie never explicitly revealed the relevance of that story, but while McCall was telling it, Teddy made a comment like "You think you know me?" This gave me the impression that McCall was revealing how much research he had done or intelligence he'd acquired, and that the story was about Teddy - he was the orphaned boy. And Teddy's response was ...

It's an homage to this film: http://www.screenonline.org.uk/tv/id/439410/ Elephant is without question Alan Clarke's bleakest film. Essentially a compilation of eighteen murders on the streets of Belfast, without explanatory narrative or characterisation and shot in a cold, dispassionate documentary style, the film succinctly captures the horror of sectarian ...
