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 ...

I think he had made up his mind when he spoke these words to Rick: What if my problem wasn't that I don't understand people but that I don't like them? What if I was the kind of person who was obliged to hurt you for this? I mean physically. I think you'd have to believe afterward, if you could, that agreeing to participate and then backing out at the ...

IMO, Lou seemed to flip when Rick asked for half the reward. Up until that point, Lou was making lots of money and enjoying having a partner with no scruples. What Rick basically did at that moment was held Lou's livelihood at ransom. Lou knew he needed a second cameraman for the job, but so did Rick. Rick knew that whatever he asked for, Lou would have ...

Given the kind of person that Lou's character was, he never gave a damn about his partner. Whether or not Rick had asked him for a raise, Lou would have sacrificed Rick anytime if a situation ever came up where Lou could benefit from his death. Such kind of person, was Lou. Secondly, what really infuriated Lou was not Rick asking for a raise or asking for a ...

Now first and foremost, the Tales of the Black Freighter were actually part of the comic source material. So including them in the movie adapation is a natural consequence for a movie production that strived to provide a very accurate reproduction of its source material (but ultimately had to cut such on first sight rather marginal things for a reasonable ...

In the First movie, Batman doesn't break his rule. He explains: "I won't kill you, but that doesn't mean I have to save you." He didn't, technically, kill him. The Dark Knight, however, is a different matter. Yes, in this film, he does break his rule. That's the thing about Dark Knight: It's about Batman failing. That's why The Dark Knight Rises is ...

It's simple. He accomplished all but if he isn't happy then he isn't enjoying the show. It's what she says with the song no matter what problems you encounter in this life, just enjoy the show.

The collect didnt make them wait because he was away, clearly he is at nowhere before hand as he tells his assistant to work harder on cleaning as they have guests coming (not the exact quote). The collect had them waiting simply because thats part of who he is In my opinion. It wasn't a negotiation tactic like starlord suggests. I suspect anyone who tries ...

"Was there ever any clarification on the point of this shot from someone involved with the movie (as opposed to pure guessing in Wikipedia)? Was Samedi merely not killed by snakes, or were the creators intentionally showing him to be immortal/supernatural?" You could ask Roger Moore he's got a website where you can ask him questions. Tom Mankiewicz, Cubby ...

If Brown get shot in the middle of the head, it means he could not live as that long. I believe He must be killed by Orange! you can see Orange's emotion when he saw the two police died, after that, you see Brown is dead. This is two continuos scenes that convinced us that Orange killed Brown. So fun with Tarantino's style.

No, not particularly regarding a mediator. A mediator between the working class and the capital is not an exclusive feature of social democracy and the scandinavian model is a sub category of social democracy. There's rather a strong reference to Marx regarding the revolte. The movie is rather slightly adovcating left-winged politics in general. He might ...

Cobb is incomplete. He's part in the dream world, part in reality. Split. The train is a metaphor for Enlightenment. To wake up from a dream but not knowing what will happen. A return to reality without description. Notice he asks Mal "Now! Tell me why?" at the end. In the now moment, it's said in true reality's now moment and there is no question. Then Mal ...

Whilst I know Peter Jackson's interest in LOTR did come partially from him watching Ralph Bakshi, I found this interview with Bakshi and thought it might help: And of course it could be really ironic if someone said something like, "In the spirit of Lord of the Rings" considering you did the first one. I'll send it to them! Are you kidding? I'm not ...

Director David Ayer explained the ending in an interview: Interviewer: One thing I know has been an early kind of discussion point is at the very end of the movie in the moment, of course, when Logan is under the tank and there is this soldier from the other side. Some people have kind of criticized that. To me, I kind of read it as what we were seeing ...

To quote series creator Vince Gilligan: We had this instinct that it would be helpful to have something distinctive about Walt’s product. And we figured it should be nice and clear and not cloudy that a proper product would be. We thought yellow would be a terrible choice because it would remind people of urine, and we figured green would be an odd ...

Walt's meth is said to be the purest of them all, ~99.1% pure. Gale goes on to guarantee Gus a purity of 96 percent for his own product. Walt’s sample was 99 percent pure and “maybe even a touch beyond that." Its also called as "Blue Sky". And in Judaism blue is called as “pavement of sapphire, like the very sky for purity." So it looked to me a homage to ...
