There is no canon source I've ever read that confirms or denies this (or discusses it at all), and I'm pretty sure Lucas wouldn't even entertain the question. Ewoks were roughly (very roughly) based on the Viet Cong and their defeating of the American troops. They are scrappy, camoflaged and deceptively smart. I would find it hard to believe that Lucas ...

The hard drive, or rather the agent lists it contained, is not merely forgotten. In fact M mentions it to Bond and Tanner after interrogating Silva once apprehended: Let me know what you recover from his computer. Has he transmitted the lists? If so, to whom? I want this resolved. This still leaves it a bit open what exactly happened to the hard drive ...

Him hating all the white people is a bit of a stretch, after all that white Dr. Shultz did for him. However, hating all the Candies is not a wee bit of a stretch. Covering his track is also a good motive: random slaves are not very likely reveal (or even be asked) who killed their hated masters when some sheriff or a marshal come to investigate, but Calvin ...

I haven't seen the movie but it is based upon the real life case of The West Memphis Three. As your quote shows Damien Echols was sentenced to die but the death penalty in the USA is a long and complicated process. When someone is sentenced to death in the United States the case is automatically sent for a direct review in state appellate court to ensure ...

A katana was generally sharp and relied on that fact to damage and cut through armour. However, dragging a tip on the floor for a short while is unlikely to cause any actual damage to the edge.

Being a "train baby", Yona has highly developed hearing ability. The director said in an interview that he felt the need to distinguish the people born on the train from those born on earth. Thus, the "train babies" perceive the noise of the train differently (it's natural to them). As these people were born in a dark environment, their sight is hindered, ...

She might not have ordered anything particularly severe that we saw but she was complicit with the brutal treatment of the slaves at the house, including Broomhilda. Her brother adored her and she could easily have used that influence to ease the plight of the people there but she chose not to and merely enjoyed the luxury of her life off their backs. She ...

Ok a couple of things spring to mind. 1) Mimi is a drug addict, as revealed in the song 'light my candle'. It could be said that a drug addict would not have full concideration to the consequences of her actions. http://www.metrolyrics.com/light-my-candle-lyrics-rent.html 2) Roger recognises something in her that reminds him of his previous partner, and ...

First episode of season two shows Claire looking at the news of Barnes' death. Her momentary pause and small hand gesture indicate that she has her own thoughts about the death, most likely concerning Frank's involvement. Does she discuss them with Frank? Unlikely. It reflects their mysterious relationship. She knows, he knows, but it isn't said explicitly. ...

Earlier in the movie, Bond had been tasked with preventing Silva's distribution of the names of MI6's undercover agents Yes, that was explicitly designed to be a failure. We can confirm that from Director Sam Mendes's Audio Commentary on Blue-Ray release. In Extra #4 "The Death of Bond" he says, about the opening sequence: To me, what's special about ...
