Remember this dialogue? Creedy: Die! Die! Why won't you die?... Why won't you die? V: Beneath this mask there is more than flesh. Beneath this mask there is an idea, Mr. Creedy, and ideas are bulletproof. IMDb V's face was never important, he was represented as an Idea in film. Even in the novels, V's true identity is a mystery and he ...

Do you mean the killer is V? If so, he didn't take off his mask because there was an experimentation that was performed on him which gave him his enhanced speed, strength, agility, and intelligence also granted him a heightened level of pain tolerance. This experimentation affected his skin on the face so he doesn't want anyone to see his face. Another ...

I don’t think so. I left this a few weeks to see if anybody would come up with an example that I missed, but to no avail. I am not aware of any scene preceding this which hinted at any romantic attraction between the two. They were very close friends, and helped maintain Dumbledore’s Army in Harry’s absence during the events of Deathly Hallows, but there ...

A study guide for Apocalypse Now offers this summary: "...these characters fit into common war film tropes: Mr. Clean is the young upstart who requires protection from his stronger comrades Chief is the hardened soldier with a heart of gold who plays by the rules Chef is the sensitive soul always on the verge of a breakdown Lance exists in his own world" ...

I agree with @JohnSmithOptional's answer. Only source I could site (embarrassingly) is Neil Strauss' The Game where the author is taught by Steve P. a PUA guru specializing in Hypnotism. They practice something they call Anamchara, staring into each others right eye, and this soul gazing creates a deep bond. Anamchara being the Gaelic meaning for friend of ...

In the series of face/personality change in the movie, we have: Jane -> John (sex change) John -> Barkeep (face grafting) Barkeep -> Fizzle Bomber (delusional from all the time traveling) Fizzle bomber is shot. Mr. Robertson has a different face from the Fizzle bomber, hence if the transformation has to have happened from the Barkeep/Fizzle Bomber's face ...

Jane/John as the Barkeep, kills the Fizzle Bomber( his much older self). After doing so he starts to release that all the events are predestined and the Fizzle Bomber was a necessary evil. Mr. Robertson believed this to be so as well ( before Barkerp would). Mr Robertson is the 10-15 year older self of J/J/B. He paved the way for the Barkeep to stay on the ...

She's very altered in the films. Miss Moneypenny, in the books, is the private secretary to M. She is completely dedicated to her work although she tends to mildly flirt with James Bond. She appears to harbour genuine affection for him too, although never states this As the Wiki for her comments: In the novel Thunderball, Fleming wrote that she "often ...

The film is based on a novella by Dostoyevsky, and at the end of the Dostoyevsky story, the main character suffers a mental break and is put in an asylum. It doesn't make any sense in the context of the film for the colonel to be in the ambulance with Simon, so in all likelihood the colonel's sudden appearance is meant as a reference to the original story, ...

To shamelessly steal from Reddit: http://www.reddit.com/r/HouseOfCards/comments/27fxvw/spoilers_just_spotted_this_in_the_season_2/ Someone noticed that Frank is looking at a map of the DC Metro System, right before pushing Zoe in front of it, when Claire walks in and says "I know you'll do whatever you think is best." Given the context she is almost ...

No, he wasn't. Now first of all, I wholeheartedly agree with Paulster2's refutation of the survival chance argument as well as his explanation of Dr. Mann's behaviour in a human sense and the missing technological possibility to even make such a human-robot hybrid, let alone any hint for that. But I think there's even more here. First of all as the ...

I think your premise is off base from the get go, which invalidates the rest of the question: ... [Mann] says something along the lines of “I haven’t had such good odds in years” proceeds to headbutt Cooper cracking Cooper’s visor. Is this evidence that Mann was in fact a robot? Surely no human would be able to process the implications of a 50-50 life or ...

The fact that Claire and Frank sometimes boast about being completely honest to each other (affairs and all) pushes me into thinking she is fully aware of Frank's deeds.

From what I'm seeing (in my search) it seems that in the movie the backstory behind those scars is left a mystery. From danielsbluetape.wordpress.com Minor spoiler, Norman finds out WarDaddy has some pretty bad burn scars on his back. Normal movie exposition would almost demand Norman ask him about this and for Brad Pitt to give a treaty eyed story ...

It's to show him that he's been following him for a while, and knows a lot of details about his life.

There's a scene later when he says he has a dossier "on every person in the room". I think the camera cuts imply that means the detectives and police officers, not just the dead Russians.

If he were the same age since the beginning then the bodyguard episode will make him 14 because they come to party for HIS birthday

Leopold was electrocuted slightly, you can hear the zapping sound of electricity as he pulls the sword off the ground, and the dismay in Leopolds face as he is electrocuted, perhaps a shock from the mechanisms holding the sword down.
