To answer this properly would require using spoilers from the books. (I can update my answer with spoilers if need be, but I assumed since this is on the TV and movies se that you're looking for a show answer) . - Updated Avoiding that, it's reasonable to assume they would rally for the Targaryens. Dany's sister in law was Elia of Dorne (sister of Oberyn ...

There is a common sailors' phrase: "Davy Jones' Locker" which means "the bottom of the ocean": Davy Jones' Locker, also Davy Jones's Locker, is an idiom for the bottom of the sea: the state of death among drowned sailors and shipwrecks. It is used as a euphemism for drowning or shipwrecks in which the sailor(s)'s and/or ship(s)'s remains are consigned to ...

IMO, Lou seemed to flip when Rick asked for half the reward. Up until that point, Lou was making lots of money and enjoying having a partner with no scruples. What Rick basically did at that moment was held Lou's livelihood at ransom. Lou knew he needed a second cameraman for the job, but so did Rick. Rick knew that whatever he asked for, Lou would have ...

Given the kind of person that Lou's character was, he never gave a damn about his partner. Whether or not Rick had asked him for a raise, Lou would have sacrificed Rick anytime if a situation ever came up where Lou could benefit from his death. Such kind of person, was Lou. Secondly, what really infuriated Lou was not Rick asking for a raise or asking for a ...

Now first and foremost, the Tales of the Black Freighter were actually part of the comic source material. So including them in the movie adapation is a natural consequence for a movie production that strived to provide a very accurate reproduction of its source material (but ultimately had to cut such on first sight rather marginal things for a reasonable ...

In the film Davy Jones is supposed to be ferrying souls lost at sea into the Locker so they can be at peace. However, the Davy Jones in the film is not doing his job properly, hence the weird/fish/ocean/coral like appearance of him and his crew. Instead, Davy Jones is attacking pirates and sailors and offering them a choice, to die or to serve on his ship. ...

I agree with the others, that its about causing Angier pain because of the disgust he feels, but there is perhaps a deeper meaning that relates to the theme of the whole film. The story of a sailor drowning and feeling like he's going home is in a sense the idea that to die doing the thing you dedicate your life too wouldn't even hurt, it would feel like ...

This is the conversation between Jack Sparrow and Bootstrap Bill when the latter came to deliver Davy Jones' message and the black spot: Jack: And to what do I owe the pleasure of your carbuncle? Bootstrap: He sent me. Davy Jones. Jack: So it's you, then. He shanghaied you into service, eh? Bootstrap: I chose it. I'm sorry for the part I played in ...

Could be because Mann had booby-trapped KIPP when he took its power cells for his cryo-sleep Or at the very least pushed it to self-destruct mode (as TARS joked it would do when Cooper increased its humour percentage).

This is explained in the second film - Peter's father altered the Spider's DNA with his own, meaning only Peter could have gained the benefits from it. This was the ensurance that after Peter's father's death (which his father expected would happen) the power would stay safe and die with him. Here is the direct quote from the script: Richard Parker: It ...

From the wiki The alien also has electromagnetic powers which can cause guidance systems to break down and make missiles misfire. I believe that it was mentioned that the military weapons were misfiring. So the alien is indeed underground but is close enough to cause the military's weapons to malfunction.

She doesn't kill John because the contract was pulled, so she would break another rule and not even get payed for the kill. The movie is unclear what happens if someone breaks the "no killing in the hotel", it just states that there are "heavy punishments" on breaking it. In the movie everybody except Perkins obeys the rule and it is probably not very ...

It certainly wasn't initially a suicide mission. Several comments made by Capa and Corazon initiate that fact, but in addition, consider the conversation between Trey and Mace; Trey: "If you rotate that much, we're going to lose Comm towers 3 and 4." Mace: "Well, it's a good thing we don't need them." Trace: "We don't need them now; we're going to need ...

When Sullivan comes home he has pastries. He is expecting the woman to be there like earlier in the film. She isn't there because the envelope contained a full account of the truth. It told her to find digby (Wahlberg) and explain to him the truth. He had know way to know that Sullivan was the rat since Sullivan blamed this on the other rat and recommended ...
