It's the principle of the thing. If he lends the lamp to Jasmine to give her three wishes, what's to stop him from then lending it to the Sultan, or to Apu, or to whomever else. He still has that third wish in reserve, so technically he can free the Genie at any time, so he hasn't violated the letter of his promise, but it certainly violates the spirit. ...

It is quite unlikely that a cure for the blight was found, since as you said yourself, they could have just stayed on earth and gradually recultivated it in this case. So the 1st option stays out of consideration. It is, however, likely that you could cultivate plants in a closed ecosystem once you have seeds separated from the blight, afterall they somehow ...

Well, you're adressing the same problem the humans in this movie are aware of, too. As you said, all the people on earth would die and there would simply be a new mankind. "That is why Plan A is much more fun" and why everyone involved is so desperate to get Plan A working and so devastated when they learn that it's supposedly impossible. The whole point of ...

From Harry Potter Wiki: Sir Nicholas: "Not everyone can come back as a ghost." Harry: "What d'you mean?" Sir Nicholas: "...Wizards can leave an imprint of themselves upon the earth, to walk palely where their living selves once trod... But very few wizards choose that path." — Sir Nicholas and Harry Potter discussing ghosts in "Harry Potter and the ...

You are not the only one :), I think it all comes down to the character of Aladdin. He's been written out to be a diamond in the rough. If he uses loop holes to get all that he wants and then figure the genie's freedom, he'd be more like.. a garnet in the rough. The central plot revolves around "being trapped" - the genie is trapped in the lamp. - Aladdin ...

The film portrays “The Gimp” as being the willing S&M partner of Zed and Maynard, the pawn shop owner and his security guard friend. While he is shown being “held” in a box-like structure in the basement of the pawn shop, it’s clear from his actions that this is a willing sexual act and that he is not being held captive. Butch reinforces this portion of ...

Talia was no ordinary child. A child born in hell, forged by suffering, hardened by pain. Not a man from privilege. After his defeat, Bane asks Batman: I broke you. How have you come back? I think this makes it quite clear that Bane was sure that Bruce would not be able to escape.

The “final” scenes from Pulp Fiction relate the story of Butch and Marsellus and the events in the pawn shop. This is demonstrated by Julius and Vincent arriving at the bar with the briefcase wearing the casual clothing that they changed into at Jimmy’s house at the begin of Butch’s tale. The events in the restaurant with Honey Bunny (the holdup) actually ...

Based on what the Architect says, to understand the human mind and help the machines make the humans accept the program better they turn to the Oracle. The oracle is a software which has a more .. human touch. The oracle doesn't only help understanding the human mind, but also thinks like one. This is why the oracle takes pleasure in baking cookies, etc. ...

We simply don't know. The trunk or the money don't appear in any of the (chronologically) later scenes. They only play an indirect role as Teddy's motivation to get the car from Leonard. There are only theories about the money's whereabouts. From imdb: What happened to the money in the trunk of the Jaguar? This question is never explicitly answered ...

TLDR version: desensitization. It happened seven times already. Dunno if it's the in-cannon answer, but there's a phenomenon called desensitization, which is when something shocking or painful happens so many times you forget that you're feeling it. For example, some soldiers who have put up with a lot of violence will simply put up with it. Know it's ...

In Project Mayhem there are no rules, no names, no questions. But there are rules in fact. Everything Tyler says is fact. He said, "There are no names in Project Mayhem". After that he says (we see him as the Narrator) "His name was Robert Paulsen". The members of P. M. are confused with this paradox, and trying to build in their "religion" or "mindset". ...

One thought: The machines wanted to kill 2 birds with one stone. They wanted to solve the energy-source problem AND the human problem. Because if they fixed the skies, but didn't enslave the humans, then the humans would just go and do something else to muck things up for the machines. Plus, the machines might have "done the math" and found that humans are a ...

OK, since no other answers came in: Batman has a cape made of a "memory cloth" which can harden and turn into a glider (as illustrated in Batman's building raid in Hong Kong). The cape saves their lives, and IMDb's Dark Knight FAQ page concurs: How did Batman and Rachel survive the fall from the penthouse? Batman is able to deploy his cape ...

While I don't have a definitive answer, this is a film with religious themes. Hallmark produced a study guide for the film, tying scripture to the plot and identifying the themes of grief, forgiveness, and service. There is an underlying belief in a benevolent God, and that does not seem compatible with the idea that an angelic force like Mrs. Miracle could ...
