The battery idea wouldn't work regardless of what creature you used because of second law of thermodynamics which very basically states that energy transfers will always result in a loss of energy (at least at temperatures which humans can endure). Animals do release energy in the form of heat, but it can't be more (or even the same amount of) energy than ...

I don't know the filmmakers' actual reason. But here's a guess. The machines would have had to exterminate all those humans, since humans always like rising up against machine oppressors. Once the machines started capturing and killing humans, maybe they decided that they'd just keep them alive and use them as a power source instead of having to ...

My interpretation was that the body farms weren't used to generate energy, but to store it. i.e. the duracell battery that Morpheus holds up. If you have pulsed or unpredictable power sources, you need massive storage to match the supply to the demand. The leading fusion power concept today is the tokamak, which is a pulsed machine. Renewable energy sources ...

In addition to Crowd T Robot's great answer about how agents detect them: So why aren't they attacked right away? It probably helps to think of the protagonists entering the Matrix as a virus infiltrating a system through a security hole. It can remain undetected for a long time, unless you know exactly where to look for it or it starts messing with ...

Agents are certainly aware of what humans see, but only under certain circumstances, which appears to be related to whether what the person sees is normal or not. For example, near the end of the first movie, a tramp sees Neo, Morpheus and Trinity enter the train station: They then make a phone call, and suddenly, one of them disappears right in front of ...

TLDR: Charge: Likely bribery, possession of stolen money? Evidence: He was caught pretty red-handed Full Answer: The safety deposit boxes belonged to all of Mike's crew. When the heat was turned up and many of them were arrested, they needed to be hushed. As a result, they were each given $15,000 (into the nine safety deposit boxes), with a bigger sum ...

There is no exact story behind how Mike found Walt. We can make hunches about how Mike could have tracked Walt. Saul knew what this guy looked like. Saul knew that this guy had some health issue (remember Walt's coughing). He would have passed on this information to Mike and Mike being an ex cop must have been faimiliar with these kind of investigations. We ...

Maybe it doesn't demonstrate any guilt, but it certain makes it a big pain in the butt for him. Rhodes was in a position to put anything into the investigation report. He obviously would include the fact that Bradley knew every trick the 4H performed, and that could imply some guilt. So even if it went to trial and was found innocent, or if it never went to ...

It was a storied fate that doomed Donald (etym: Greek, "God's Gift") Theodore (etym: Celtic, "World Rule") Kerabotsus (oronym: "Care abouts us"). Contributor Oliver_C may be hinting at the very same idea. THE LEBOWSKI CODEX: HIDDEN CODES REVEALED http://filmtank.org/forum/showthread.php?t=2307

As far as I know, if you commit some crime and are found mentally ill, you do not go to jail. Instead you go to a mental hospital, where you are treated until you are fine. Then you are free. Hence the whole "pleading insanity" option in various movies/tv shows. It would not make sense to stay 3 years in a hospital and then also get the full sentence. This ...

The only explanation besides it being a hole in the movie, is that the poison darts have a very long delay time (20-25 minutes). This opens a large gap of time where the ex soldier could have used the toilet before the old lady, and shot the pilot. The movie doesn't show who uses the toilet before the old lady, just after to make Jen a suspect. There ya go:) ...

The polar bear (or some other form of ice and snow dwelling animal). The reason he withheld the fact that he saw the polar bear was because the idea that the snow could ever be melting was already such an impossible notion to the dwellers of the train who had spent years in the complete belief that the climate change was permanent, gasp that telling Curtis ...

Catherine killed every one and drove the dr crazy and got him hospitalized so she could add another chapter to her book. He was her muse that's why she paid him respect and brought him a copy of her book we he was and the psych ward because he was the main character... That's why he smiled in the end ...of joy. But the real pain he's in there for killing the ...

Normally the Icarus II was kept completely centered in the shadow of the shield. Enroute, Icarus II picks up the distress beacon from Icarus I. The crew decide to investigate, ostensibly because two bombs are better than one, since the whole bomb is theoretical until used (such as the first atomic bomb was theoretical until first exploded). When Trey ...

I believe, and I could be wrong, that he recognized the type of flake that came through the window. He mentioned something about knowing it was getting warmer because of the crystal structure of the flakes. That's what he saw in the greenhouse.

According to the Disney Wiki, there's no information about what happened to them other than their father was in hospital once, and the information that does exist is contradictory (emphasis mine): Huey, Dewey and Louie are the sons of Donald's sister Della Duck; in Donald's Nephews, their mother is instead named Dumbella. In the original theatrical ...

Yes, Choti Bahu was killed by the henchmen of Majhle Babu because he suspected that Choti Bahu was having affair with Bhootnath (though really it was not). There are some scenes in the movie where Chote Babu sees Bhoothnath coming to the 'haveli' and talking to Choti Bahu.

The answer is much more complex. There are two fully developed storylines throughout the whole film. In one storyline, Catherine is the killer. In the second storyline, Beth is the killer. If you look back at the story very carefully both in the movie and the screenplay each is presented. The ending concludes both storylines. The Beth as killer ...

There's one main reason it could be a problem: The Apostle is immortal As we can tell from his entrance when he falls out of the sky onto a tarmac road uninjured (except for a migraine). Then the following exchange takes place which further proves it (emphasis mine): Bethany: You know, it's been a while since physics but I would think the impact with ...

No Kristoff did not remember but the trolls did. I don't think that when he Was younger he was paying to who the girls were I think he was paying attention to the trolls

Not really. First of all, just about everyone involved brought about this complex situation. Everyone's (usually misguided) choices - Bunny, the Dude, the big Lebowski and the nihilists themselves - put the nihilists in that parking lot, so everyone would be responsible for Donny's death. And we don't even know Donny's prior health condition. In short, you ...

He killed Rodney because Rodney was a witness to petty's murder. Degroats real issue was with John. John still owed him Degroat more money. The fixed fight didn't settle the whole debt. Before they leave, john asks him if everything is good between them. Degroat says, well yeah as long as you brought me the rest of my money. Petty says nothing. So ...

The whole transcript of the scene is as follows: "I told you I was telling the truth Daddy. I'm sorry I lied to you. But you lied too. You told me everyone was alike and deserved a fair break. But you meant everyone who was like you. You told me you wanted me to change the world, make it better. But you meant by becoming a lawyer or an economist ...

He does not hear it nor does not he guess it. He knows that they are going to say that. In the beginning of the movie the Crooked Captain says to him that he has the brains but he is not cut for a job of a detective. The film is about his becoming of being "cut for the job". In this moment he has seen the way of Jack and Bud and learned from them. And in ...

Zero Effect ousted itself to me as as a modern take on Sherlock Holmes (and had been my undisputed favorite modern adaptation until the new BBC series) with the opening and closing lines of the movie- Arlo says to a prospective client that "...He doesn't negotiate his fee. He works at a flat rate. Under some unusual circumstances, he'll work pro bono - never ...

Malvo is an extremly odd character. You can say he is somewhat similar to the Joker in The Dark Knight. These are psychotic criminals without clear motives for a crime (The joker, obviously being way ahed of the curve). There are several instances from the show where Malvo does strange things to people. Some examples : when he check in to a motel, he ...

Yes, indeed bodachs know about the gift that Odd can see them. This is the main twist of the movie towards the end. Bodachs main motive and plan is to cause a disaster in the mall which would lead to hundreds of casualties. The reason why Bodachs never went near the co-conspirators because Odd would find out that they're planning on a mass destruction.

I saw that Malvo gets consistently portrayed as entirely vague and entirely evil. The only solid characterizations for him are the cassette tapes he carries around of all these recorded conversations. It's hinted at a lot, but when we see him living as the dentist, we finally see an unequivocal scene where he is just sitting alone, listening to the tape, and ...

I now believe that he never did the first time travel as stated in the newspaper. As he seems entirely unaware of what to expect for going into the past; as he says things like "safety not guaranteed" and "bring your own weapons", plus all the martial arts training he thought he needed to learn. Also no information about his supposed first travel was ever ...

"Caesar was with another big ape" you mean this guy, Maurice (Orangutan)? Then this big ape did not gain intelligence from treatment but he knows sign language because he was in circus in the past. At this mark in the movie where Caesar and Maurice were talking in sign language, Caesar asks 00:49:07,361 --> 00:49:10,363 You know sign? then Maurice ...

Apes have been trained in the use of sign language for decades. However, whether they truly understand the signs they use or simply become good at mimicking them to earn some type of reward has been disputed for about as long as they've been trained to use sign language. Read more about Koko the gorilla for a bit of insight into training apes to use sign ...

In a bit of exposition in the first one, Scorponok's tail was said to be healing/regenerating (except for the bits hit by the sable? rounds). It could be that once reactivated, Optimus began to heal, but given the extent of damage it would have been quicker to be 'fixed'. As for his rusty appearance (except for bullet holes of course), my guess is it was ...

Isabelle was at her last wits and her life was crumbling down in front of her eyes as she killed Dani and since Dani sent the videos she knew her life was over. So in order to find justification in her actions and "relieve" her of her guilt, she DREAMS of Clarissa ( twin sister killing herself) kind of like a full circle in the plot. If that really did ...

The movie is a satire about the start of the second gulf war between the western allies (including the USA & UK) and Iraq. The plot of the movie involves different groups of people who are basically for or against the possibility of going to war against the unnamed country, primarily: The "Doves" against war are: Karen Clark (Assistant Secretary of ...

It looks a bit like this picture: The material is steel wire (Original description in (German) is Gedreht, Stahldraht, mit Öse.). So, it doesn't need to be Nylon. I found also a picture from a German museum: The brush is from 19. century. The material for the brush is bristle, but if you change the color it may be the same as in the film. (The ...

I know many people are thinking it, so I'll just spit it out. No groaners, please. No one wants to say this. It's a Plot Device. No, that's not just a band-aid answer. We all know them. We all see them. Some of us die a little at the over-use of them. Every movie has them, the really good ones just don't make them obvious. Whyfor a plot device then? ...

Actually, when Clarice examined the dead girl in the local mortuary earlier on, one of the things she noticed was two unexplained diamond shaped areas cut out of the back of that girl, in addition to the gunshot wound made at close range (muzzle stamp on the skin) and a death's head moth (or pupae, I can't remember which) stuck, or shoved down, the throat of ...

The diamond pattern itself doesn't mean anything, but Clarice recognizes it from earlier. Cuts in the same pattern were taken from the skin of one of Buffalo Bill's earlier victims. Clarice realized from her talks with Lecter that Buffalo Bill knew his first victim, Fredrica Bimmel, which was why Clarice was in Fredrica's room to begin with. So yes, Buffalo ...

We can never know why, maybe he director didn't overthink and simply decided to not include it. I got this from an interview with him: What scenes are absolutely fundamental to the story? What scenes must be in our film? And what scenes can we do with out, even if we love them? So he just said they were picky while choosing what scenes to do and ...

Warning - speculation ahead: I would guess that they did not want to remind the public about the incident and were a little worried about the tiny chance that the bug which caused the behaviour might reoccur.

To add to John Smith's answer on the symbolic aspect of the movie, it can be noted that in the comics, the train actually can stop! More precisely, there is a second train in the second and third tome. Larger and more comfortable than the first one, the autocratic central government keeps the power using the fear of a collision with the first train. The ...

The big deal about the 'miracle of the train' was that it was perpetual motion engine: if it were to stop, it would no longer be contributing the momentum necessary to maintain its forward velocity... As for Why the train needed to keep moving in the first place: the entire film is a parable about society, from a dystopian perspective. In the event of a ...

Although I agree that Red Dwarf is loose with its own history, and I wouldn't think too hard about inconsistencies from (in particular) the first 2 seasons. However, Lister was adopted, and so I've always thought the woman pictured was one of his adopted parents mothers. It's frequently mentioned throughout the show (often by Rimmer as a putdown) that he was ...

I am assuming that back before the Rainicorn/Dog war, humans wouldn't venture into Rainicorn territory often, because most humans have an animal companion. This companion is usually a dog. Maybe the Rainicorns were low on resources, and the occasional human would be wonderful to them. After the war, humans were extremely scarce around their territory. Like ...

I'd guess the movie's motive for not introducing the McKee subplot is because that was only a minor subplot of the book. And re-telling a book story in movie form, when you've got to get all the key details on screen in just 2 or 3 hours, means you have to omit many minor details. The core story of The Great Gatsby is about Gatsby and the world he lived in, ...

Did Bran and Jojen do the same with a passage? Yes, the same passage, and Samwell and Gilly actually meet Brann, Jojen, Meera and Hodor in the The Nightfort after the former have just come through the sally port, in S03E10- Mhysa: They're never really in the same shot together, but that's Sam's shoulder on the left of the frame. And the reverse ...

This scene was playing on the many negative behaviours of a meth addict. Many users of meth experience increased paranoia, energy, a greater sense of alertness and very unpredictable behaviour. Jesse, knowing a lot about meth, plays on this by creating a scene with the shovel and pretending he's looking for something. The paranoid, curious Tucker can't ...

I think, ultimately, the movie makes the "Life of Pi" claim, which is that here are these events, and there's really no objective way to determine what explains those events. There's what we tell ourselves is the more rational explanation, that he did indeed crash his car into the house, it gave him mild brain damage causing him to view that traumatic moment ...
