TL;DR: Bane is VERY much a villain and does not help Batman in the film. Christopher Nolan envisaged and wrote him as villain. His actions throughout are cold blooded and cruel. Despite showing care for Talia, he is merciless in his destruction of all others, murdering at will and threatening to slaughter an entire city. Much of the theory is centred on ...

There is a clue to this in the dialogue of the movie itself, where Tyler and the Narrator are discussing their fathers: Narrator: I don't know my dad. I mean, I know him, but... he left when I was like six years old. Married this other woman, had some other kids. He like did this every six years, he goes to a new city and starts a new family. Tyler ...

I think the details what caused earth's current state are left a bit unclear and that on purpose. What we know is, that there are two different aspects to earth's devastating state: There is the blight which attacks and destroys the crops, causing a major sustenation problem on earth and in parallel intoxicating the atmosphere, gradually making it ...

The same question was also asked on Quora, with various interesting answers, even if it's hard to say which one is correct and they all sound quite plausible. Everyone seems to agree though, that both Lander and Ranger are very much capable of planetary lift-offs and could as well have left earth on their own. Remains the question why they chose a ...

This is what I imagined after watching the movie: The shuttles could carry people and little (or no) cargo in and out of a planet's atmosphere, but a big rocket was needed to carry all the cargo needed for the long journey to Saturn and into the wormhole.

The angels brought him back, body and all - which apparently they can do. You correctly point out that he was cremated by his brothers, Sam and Dean. In Point of No Return we see his return: ...

From appearances, and the way he constantly fishes pieces out of his mouth and puts them on his plate and picks his teeth, and also according to online sources (like here and here), it's a horrible, cold piece of leftover steak which he was eating before he passed out drunk. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear to be in the script, where circumstances are a bit ...

There is the original (and misleading) connection, as stated in Season 2, and then the true connection, as stated in Seasons 4/5. Season 2: Throughout this season we learn more and more about these special children. At first it seemed that all their parents had been burned by the Yellowed Eyed Demon (aka Azazel), but it soon becomes clear there are ...

The Babadook is really a metaphor for the mother's grief. Once summoned, it initially possesses the mother leading to her becoming a monster of sorts, treating her son badly and hurting the family pet. This continues throughout the movie, this problematic mix of the "good" mother and the Babadook mother which controls her dark thoughts and feelings. When ...

It's never explained. There are a few theories though: It's blood. It's simply darker than normal to indicate an even more sinister being. When Zorg (Gary Oldman) is called by Mr. Shadow, he starts to bleed it, suggesting that the mere force of evil in Mr. Shadow is enough to cause it. It's some type of residue, caused by contact with pure evil. This is ...

The Club in Newcastle wasn't opened by either Tyler nor Jack, so it's possible they never met Bob there: JACK Local 8 just started in Penns Grove. And, Bob said he was at fight club in Newcastle last week. TYLER Newcastle? Did you start that one? ...

Short and simple: many jokes are based on the problems of the different characters. In other words there has to be a reason to laugh at. And one reason could be other peoples problems. The girls have these problems because the authors want to. Maybe next episode Max buys an island in the caribbean for one dollar on ebay or Caroline wins two million dollars ...

I'm not sure of where they are supposed to be located, but you could probably assume a large city in the northeastern US, probably NYC (they may say within the series, I just don't remember). Cost of living is not cheap in big cities, even with two jobs. With that said, first, they are only working as waitresses in a greasy spoon, so they are not getting ...

The logic that was used was that he sent each piece of data, through the watch, using morse code. The second hand in the watch became stuck and effectively continually moved between two seconds in either short or long motions, signifying the dot and dash of morse code. Of course, sending the data would likely have taken a colossal amount of time. But in ...

Okay, so several people have mentioned that the planet's density will have an effect on its escape velocity. This is true. The total mass of the planet is: M=(4π/3)R³ρ, where ρ is its average density. The escape velocity squared is: v² = 2GM/R = (8πG/3)R²ρ = k²R²ρ, where I've defined k²=8πG/3. So we see that the equation for escape velocity, in terms of its ...

TL;DR: It's likely from his father, although this explanation comes from the Japanese movies (not the original novels) and isn't elaborated on in the American films. Long Answer It's not really explained in the movie, but there is some information given in the original Japanese materials: Original novel: The Ring evolved from Ring, a 1991 Japanese ...

This isn't answered in the film and I can't find any interviews where it was addressed. In the film, the army is based on the real-life Terracotta Army, as evidenced by this interview with the director. Thus, the film was supposed to give the "real" reason as to why the Terracotta Army exists today, as opposed to the actual reason - to act as burial art for ...

I believe that the existing theory that they were both in the league of shadows doesn't hold water. They were members at different times and there's no evidence that the two ever crossed paths under Raz Al Ghoul's roof. In addition Bane was excommunicated before Bruce ever joined up. However Bane was trained by the same man, he learned the same lessons. ...

Re: the conversation Mrs. Hughes heard through the grating. Mrs. Hughes, we know, told Carson. Carson no doubt blabbed to His Lordship, as usual. His Lordship told his wife, Lady Grantham. And Her Ladyship blabbed to O'Brien, as usual. O'Brien, of course, told Thomas. Either that, or O'Brien and/or Thomas was lurking in the hallway, and overheard the ...

I was watching the movie for the second time this afternoon and when they reached the Gargantua end of the wormhole it occurred to me that just dropping in at a dead stop near such a huge gravity well would make for a short, unhappy life. Unless you arrive with the right velocity to be in some kind of orbit around the black hole. That made me think there ...

My guess is that the wormhole had to be orbiting some object in order not to drift away or just stay in the same location (since we know that the solar system is moving around the center of the galaxy, and Saturn itself is moving across its orbit around the sun), and Saturn could have been the only planet with the correct mass to hold the wormhole in orbit ...

Gargantua was a "real" black hole, but with a little artificial extra "installed" into it. Neither does the movie say that all black holes are artificial, nor that this wasn't a real black hole. It is true that the "Bulk Beings" somehow planted the tesseract in the black hole in order to save Cooper and facilitate his time-defying communication with his ...

My assumption was that systems are defined by the central mass, a star, large planet, or black-hole. Since Gargantua is a super-massive black-hole, it may have many other stars and planets captured into near and far orbits, and even extra-planar orbits (above or below the plane of Gargantua's planets). These far or off-plane systems would be much closer ...

You are certainly right in that the 3 planets they visit are part of one system and the other 9 planets are part of other system(s), however this does not mean that they are located in entirely different parts of the universe. And in fact as you yourself state correctly, they could not control the exit location of the wormhole, it's a point to point ...

TL;DR: We don't know how Suki/The Scribbler got her powers. It's suggested she, like a few others, just had them. She changed the machine, which led to others becoming stronger. Long Answer The Scribbler was based off a graphic novel written by Daniel Schaffer: Usually we could go to the source material for some detailed information on it, but it's ...

This is more of a guess than anything else but - what would they say? They have travelled for two years in stasis, gone through a worm hole, landed on a planet for a few hours and returned to find some 20+ years have passed. How many of his children's birthdays has he missed? How can he possibly make amends with the little girl he left crying in her ...

For the first question about how gravity could move the watch sideways, apparently the idea was that gravitational waves were being transmitted into the past. In Chapter 30 of The Science of Interstellar by Kip Thorne, the physicist who was the scientific consultant for the movie, it's said that Cooper is scooped out of the black hole by the tesseract, which ...

I'm not sure this is such a surprising reaction. AS you already comment, Jeff had a broken leg and was thus fairly immobile. Stella was a care home nurse who is older than Jeff or Lisa. In the apartment, rushing Lisa, is Thorwald - a man that they both believe to be a murderer and who is much bigger than either of them. So consider these few points: ...
