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 ...

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, ...

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 ...

Might it not maybe be that the SEALs who were in battle or who were saved by the deceased, pounds their pins into the coffin? idk just a guess.

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Well, this may date back to the era of The Keystone Cops. As I recall from a Film class I took in college, one of the tenants of early comedic cinema was "to mock authority". Putting an authority figure (policeman) in a situation where he appears to be a bumbling idiot was a great way to elicit laughs in the early days. While the technique is still widely ...

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, ...

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 ...

I think its an inside, like maybe Matt Damon turned down the role of Wilfred or something but other than the Madamon I cant think of any significant importance Matt has had in the show.

PK is a hindi slang. It expands as 'Pea kay' and it means being drunk. Whenever Amir Khan's character talks to the general people, they feel like his statements and questions are absurd and idiotic. So they ask him whether he is drunk (PK), and hence he gets this name.

The following is just a first start, not so much based on proper quotes from the responsible film-makers rather than common sense and the respective Wikipedia article on the movie. First and foremost the visual style of a movie is to a large degree up to its director and Zack Snyder has repeatedly shown his affinity towards darker and gloomier color tones, ...

This event represents Stephen Hawking becoming a Companion of Honour. The Guardian film review shed some light into this event and why the two are together: Hawking was made a Companion of Honour in 1989, but that actually happened before the couple separated. In other words, the historical reality is that Hawking was made Companion of Honour, and ...

Stephen asked her to come along. When you see Jane and Jonathan together in their home towards the end of the film, Jonathan hands her a letter noting it's from Stephen, and after reading it you can hear Jane quietly exclaim, "Oh, my!" This makes it pretty clear that the letter is from Stephen himself, he's informing her of his impending knighthood, and has ...
