There is no assuming the stag was Shireen's, since it was made by Davos himself and he recognizes it.The fact that Shireen's stag lay in the pyre revealed to Davos the events from the end of S5, when Shireen was burned alive. Melisandre tells Ser Davos in S5 that Shireen is dead, but leaves out the fact that it was her idea to burn Shireen alive. When Davos ...

The significance is where he found it. He found it this burning remains Which means he knows now that she was sacrificed to the fire god and surely that's a set up to some sort of a later confrontation between him and Melisandre.

IMHO, there's not a buddhist philosophy motivating Project Mayhem, or the main character/s. Haikus are more likely a way of escaping reality, this is why Narrator needs Tyler. A zen-liking home is mostly just simple consumerism. Detachment is an awesome point, and one of the major plot-magnets (if I may). But not very buddhist when one destroys everything. ...

With regards to the curtains: The red curtain is a recurring symbol in Lynch’s works, having its first appearance in Blue Velvet. He has expressed his fondness of a particular moment – the moment when you are sitting in a movie theatre and the lights go out, the curtains open, the movie begins. And it takes you to another world. This particular ...

Curiously, both the Bolton banner and the Union Jack do have some common elements in how they came to look the way they do! The Bolton flag is, of course, an image of a flayed man being crucified: The diagonal part of the Union Jack comes from the saltire-shaped flags of Scotland and Ireland: And St. Andrew's flag of Scotland is cross-shaped because ...

The UK flag, the Union Jack, is a combination of three flags: And Scotland's flag is based on the crucifixion of Saint Andrew, which was held on an X-shaped cross: But Bolton's flag represents glorification of the cruelty of skinning people alive on an X-shaped cross upside down. So they do have a similar basis of crucifixion on an X-shaped cross, ...

Mann was alive when he came to Iowa. Ray's brother-in-law saw and interacted with him when they introduced each other. At that time the brother-in-law could not see the ghosts on the field, therefore Terence had to be alive.

Perhaps another theory in between. I believe that Terrance Mann died in the van just before arriving at the hotel in Chisholm. Consider this. We see him driving once on the way to Chisholm, but that is the last needed activity. However, if you skip that one driving time, then the last time he interacts with someone is at the ball club. He orders a beer and ...

The ending is not based on actual history since the history of Banquo and Fleance are dubious at best. Although Macbeth was a historical figure, the characters of Banquo and Fleance are questionable. Shakespeare used the works of Raphael Holinshed when writing historical plays. Banquo is mentioned by Holinshed as an accomplice of Macbeth in his usurpation ...

The mention of Lady Macbeth once having a child is certainly not a new invention created by the filmmakers for this particular adaptation of Macbeth. Shakespeare's Macbeth mentions Lady Macbeth having a child at one point. ACT 1 SCENE VII Lady Macbeth: I have given suck, and know how tender 'tis to love the babe that milks me. Shakespeare based ...

A haircut, especially for someone with long hair, is often a difficult and emotional step, since growing hair out takes years. Thus, it's often used to signify a dramatic change for the character, either leaving the old life or old trauma behind to start anew. TVTropes is a good source for many such uses in film and TV which can be a great resource to see ...

As others have mentioned, the tattoo actually belongs to Dominic Monaghan. However, to answer your other question Does it carry any significance within the series...? Yes, it does. Eyes, and in particular, opening and closing eyes, are a significant theme in LOST. as shown here: So his tattoo is either It may not have been intentional, but ...

The answer is you are confusing Te3n with teen (teenager). But Te3n in the film title refers to तीन (Hindi word for number 3 and pronounced as teen/theen). Even the film has three major characters played by Amitabh Bachchan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, and Vidya Balan. So the title refers to their conflict and journey.

While I haven't seen Bojack Horseman yet, you're definitely confusing things here. Hitler's Olympic Games (1936) were hold in Berlin, not Munich. The Olympic Games of Munich were held in 1972. Considering mentioning [Steven] Spielberg, it's obviously referring to his movie Munich. While looking for a full/direct quote I found a thread on Reddit about ...

Here's My take: The whole movie is showing you how war turns people into something nonhuman: people who act like animals, that closing shot the tank from the top down like it's a steel coffin being lowered into the ground, the kid getting nicknamed "Machine" and such. The German who saw him was just like he was- Human. He hadn't been turned into a "...

I think @thonnor is right but there are some details that I think need to be clearly stated so in attempt to clarify things I'm adding my own answer. First of all you have to understand that Locke lost the feeling in his legs temporarily. When he was struck in the leg from the shrapnel, this was only the beginning of him losing this feeling. He didn't ...

In the Donnie Darko Book, Richard Kelly talks about the dinner scene where the family is discussing politics. The parents are clearly Republicans but when the argument escalates and Donnie and his sister starts cussing at each other, the dad has no real problem with it and even finds it funny, even with their 9 y.o. daughter at the table. The reason for ...

you can interpret the movie a million different ways.My interpretation is based off of the small behaviors many characters have throughout the movie. Like the guards; who in the begging of every scene involved, watch Teddy with fear until Teddy faces their direction, then they look away. The guards, the policemen and his “partner” does this constantly, in ...

Jake had a line early in the movie while talking to Mrs. Mulwray to the effect that sometimes it is better to let sleeping dogs lie. And we see throughout the movie, particularly in his relationship with Evelyn Mulwray, that he never lets sleeping dogs lie --he is after all a detective--and his actions end up making matters worse if not for him for someone ...

Since no one ever said "Yes", we'll never know what would happen. As I recall, the Cube was a Psychology experiment. Again, there's no way to know if anyone ever said "Yes". We do know that the people inside the cube are either death row inmates or political prisoners, and that no one gets out alive. Kazan, the autistic savant from the first movie who ...

This is most likely a result of either the Many-Worlds Interpretation, or the Many-Minds interpretation (depending on how the universe splitting happens). I won't go too much in details since it isn't the subject (though very interesting), and you'll find plenty on the Internet. Quick background: while the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum physics states ...

I believe the moral of the story is "Don't judge book by its cover". The whole movie is against stereotypes. The bunny should be a carrot farmer, because that's what bunnies do, the predators are bullies an deep down everyone feels that way, because when assumption is made that only predators are going feral, everyone accepts it as truth. You can see that ...

In my opinion, (think of this as more a long comment than an answer), I don't believe that there is clear symbolism in that scene to expound on. That's not that there isn't any, but it's sufficiently convoluted that it's impossible to say. Symbolism doesn't have to be obvious, in fact, it's often best when it's subtle, but one thing symbolism should be is ...

The whole Time Remnant thing is very confusing, I think it was tacked on as a way to explain how Zoom killed Jay Garrick, but then when it was thought out, it didn't really make sense. I think the producers of Flash have missed a trick here because it's better to keep time travel simple so you don't confuse the audience, and they've made it all a bit too ...

We understand that the boy is Kurosawa himself. Fwiw from Wikipedia, "Kurosawa built a near exact replica of his childhood home for this segment, and the nameplate on the gate even reads "Kurosawa". Kurosawa even showed the actress playing the mother a photo of his own, and gave her tips on how to act as her."

Way I see it, the way time travel works in the Arrowverse is that, as explained in Legends, time takes a bit to solidify. Once it has, alternate timeliness are erased and the new timeline takes hold. When Barry traveled back in time to prevent Reverse-Flash from killing him as a child, we'very seen as many as four Barry's there at a time. However, when he ...

A lot of valid points. I've pondered most of them myself. Hell, after one late night/early morning viewing, I even considered the "Fight Club" theory. Mr Gold, is indeed ego personified. But.....What if Avi and Zach are all in Mr Greens head and he's really certifiable. Since Macha basically killed his brothers wife and daughter and set him up, it made ...
