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 ...

There is nothing I've ever seen that specifically indicates why he chose that name. There is nothing on the DVD or Blu-Ray commentary tracks that mentions it either. Character names are seldom discussed by writers with respect to why a particular name was chosen. So, in that respect it's impossible to know where it came from. Perhaps the name was just ...

Even though it's impossible to say for sure, there are some strong odds that he got the name from a Disney movie. There was a movie called Napoleon and Samantha about two young kids who had a pet lion. The movie was released in 1972 and it was broadcast on television in 1975. And the boy, played by Johnny Whitaker, was named Napoleon Wilson. So it's ...

My guess is that time reset is triggered when an Alpha or Cage (with Alpha blood) dies. Time will always be reset to a certain "spawn point". Spawn point for time loop is set to 24 hours prior to the time of "infection" with blood/time of first death upon gaining the time loop ability (which is in both cases the same). The omega did not prevent its down ...

How about this explanation: It is Omega that resets the time, not Cage. It does so automatically, reflexively, in response to Alpha's death. Now that Cage has acquired this "link" with Omega, it's his death that triggers Omega's reflex. The time to reset to might not be a simple "X hours back" rule, but is set by Omega to a point sufficiently back from the ...
