The short answer is that he's not a highly trained astronaut, he's a ground-based theoretical physicist who volunteered to lead this last-ditch mission. His knowledge of space flight is limited to a single mission and his training was done on the cheap by flight controllers who themselves haven't ever been into space. It's clear that he doesn't recognise ...

The movie doesn't say, but the official Randall Frakes novelisation indicates that Skynet was "smashed" in the second timeline some time after John's 45th birthday. Sadly, he lowered the binoculars, revealing forty-five-year-old features made severe by constant stress. The left side of his face was heavily scarred. Yet he was still an impressive man, ...

There are any number of fan-created ...

The mexicans driving the pick up truck shooting the buck shot at Moss. They quickly cut his tires and went after him for the missing money. They didn't want to kill Moss so he'd be able to tell them where the money is. Poor Moss was providing a generous humanitarian effort to the mexican who asked him the previous evening for agua. These were the same men, ...

Think of the Ring like an addiction- Frodo is just starting out with it at this point, so it hasn't affected him too much yet even though he can feel it is pretty powerful. Bilbo has had it for at least 50 years now, and he's quite, quite attached to it. It's very hard for him to give it up cold turkey, and he wants to jump back on the bandwagon. Gollum is ...

This is discussed (at reasonable length) in the film's novelisation. In short, it's not made clear why he's averse to medical help being brought, but Murph herself has a few theories; That it would be an admission of personal failure, that he'd have to admit that the Earth was doomed, that he's become indoctrinated by the anti-science forces seen at the ...

He changed a lot and his beliefs changed also. Rather than saving humans and such great goals, he just wants to go back to earth. He lost his hope totally and years ...

Lord Katsumoto wanted to "open" the Emperor's eyes to show him how him listening to the counsel of Omura and his cronies is killing off the old ways of the Japanese culture (and of the ways of the Samurai: honor, loyalty, sacrifice) by embracing the ways of the "west". The Emperor was blinded by all his other counselors trying to get him to "improve" the ...

After the head exploding scene Valentine stated that he's not that stupid to implant an explosive version of the implant into himself. They both still needed the implant to be immune to the effects of the signal. We can assume he did the same thing for his right-hand assistant Gazelle.

Fun fact: This episode was an homage to True Detective, strange as it may sound. Background: In early 2014, HBO released the first season of True Detective, which quickly earned rave reviews and plenty of fanfare. One of the more impressive feats by that first season's director, Cary Fukunaga, was an uninterrupted, action-filled 6-minute-long tracking shot ...

He's in a trans. He found a case with two million dollars and all he owned was a beat up truck and renting a trailer to reside in with Carla. He was just a hard working welder. He wasn't cut out for this like Carson told him at the hospital. You find something like that you have to find a way to stash it forever. Especially after seeing dead people in an ...

In "The Expendables 1" Barney kills Munroe who previously killed the general. Munroe was a EX-CIA Agent. Besides the fact that Barney kills Munroe (who may have cooperated ...

The gamekeeper then employs field elements to cause the player to abandon their plan and come back into play. This happens several times during the first game. Further, the gamekeeper is responsible for keeping the games ...

Her last words were "now I know why the sheriff told me about this." He took her car keys, left the cattle gun behind and was on his way to retirement...sort of...Chigurh was in a vehicle accident ...
