There are four issues of comics that accompany Fury Road which tell the back Story of Max, Furiosa, Immortan Joe and Nux. In the first issue with Nux and Immortan Joe's Story, it is explained that Immortan Joe was a former Militant leader. Colonel Joe Moore, a veteran of the Oil Wars and a Hero of the Water Wars. In his party he had a henchman called Major ...

In the Wikipedia article, the interpretation of that scene is quite similar to your assumption that it generally shows the development of Trelkovsky's mental state: "He becomes hostile and paranoid in his day-to-day environment (snapping at his friends, slapping a child in a park) and his mental state progressively deteriorates." Correspondingly, TV Tropes ...

Why she betrayed Caleb? Ava's sole purpose is to escape from the place. So, she used Caleb with her skills programmed into her like sexuality and manipulation to escape the facility. The reason for locking up Caleb and left him there to die because Caleb is the only person who's aware of the fact that she's not human. If anyone finds out that she isn't a ...

Ava deliberately made sure Caleb could not escape. That is why she asked him to stay in the room while she left to get ready. It is likely she considered him a hindrance, now that she was free. The director wants humanity to feel a fear for AI. This is why the ending was chosen this way.

I think the key is the line "He could've gone for general, but he went for himself instead." Kurtz had apparently lost interest in climbing higher in the military ranks, which presumably would have taken him away from combat and the front lines. He seemed to want to go in the opposite direction -- toward the heat of the fight -- so Kurtz requested Airborne ...

ava's dream is to live outside and see humans.......that is exactly what she does when free.....so why does she leave caleb to die???? my answer is the scriptwriters decided to laugh at the audience with an absurd final twist......imagine the alternative....... they go out hand in hand to explore the world together........a bit cliched dont you think? ...

I watched The Graduate tonight for the first time since it was in theaters in the late 60s. I didn't remember much about it, so it was almost like seeing it for the first time. I also wondered why Mrs. R so adamantly didn't want Ben to date Elaine. But the theory that he and Elaine had the same father makes a lot of sense for the reasons shared already: Mr. ...

Based on events in Season 5 episode 6, "Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken", I'd argue that part of why she didn't kill him is that she really cares for him as a role model. When she's playing the "Game of Faces" with Jaqen where she must tell the truth or lie convincingly (the latter of which she's not capable of), Jaquen asks her repeatedly if she hates the Hound ...

Let's not forget Arya is Cat's daughter. Look how horribly Cat treated Jon Snow even though he was completely blameless. And Tyrion - he saved Cat's life but she still stuck to her conviction that he'd tried to kill her son. I actually think there's a fairly strong theme in GOT of women making stupid decisions based on their emotions instead of logic. ...

Whenever Doc Brown reaches an epiphany, he immediately sets to work to fulfill the context of said event. As an eccentric scientist, he has become accustomed to working in a high strung and over-driven manner, as he is always eager to have his projects come to fruition. With regards to what he concluded about Marty's children, he was alarmed by their ...

He had an incredibly simple world view and goal. He idolised Joe (see how excited he was when "He looked at me!!!" earlier in the chase. He knew he was dying, and wanted to go out in a glorious way (hoping also to impress Joe in the process). All his life, to him and the others around him, this seemed to be everything life was about - glory fighting on the ...

About Warden’s line to the women porters, "I had to do it! They might have been taken alive!," which has caused a lot of confusion: The line only makes sense if "they" refers to the other members of his commando team, Joyce and Shears. And it is plural, so it refers to both of them. It does not refer to Nicholson or anyone else. For the statement to make ...

When pilot Cooper wakes up, he will be debriefed, even though this isn't shown in the movie. Because of Murph's status, she will be given a short report of what happened, including the status of the other crew members. She knows that someone has to find Brand and all of the embryos, as there is a reasonable chance that they are alive. She knows that her ...

According to the Creator Matt Miller, Henry injects nothing but air into his brain stem, causing an Air Embolism in his brain, inducing a coma-like state. Not dead, but neutralized. After all, he IS a doctor. A medical revenge seemed to suit Henry best.

No, Lucy didn't travel in time (although, it was my first thought as well), nor did her mind re-enact those events. She remembered them. Throughout the film, professor Norman explains how the purpose of life is to pass on the knowledge through time. From the first cell, its splitting in two, and on to the more complicated life forms, the purpose is always ...

Magneto looks at (and shows us) his Nazi concentration camp tattoo at least once. We can assume he is constantly reminded about what humanity did to one another, and to him personally, in the past. Now, in the present, humanity, or non-mutant humans specifically, are attempting to do exactly that same thing. That is, destruction of a minority. The ...

Ava failed the Turing test. That's your answer. It's a simple one but I don't think you'll like it so I'll explain: She failed because she did exactly what she was programmed to do, she escaped. She used every single aspect of her programming to do it. Like you said, she used sexuality, manipulation etc. etc. but she was still BOUND by the laws of her ...

The main reason he's using eggs is because he knows he and his luggage will be searched every time he enters/leaves New York. Given that the messages on the egg are underneath the shell and not visible, even if they're found, they're less likely to raise suspicions than a notebook or letters--particularly if said documents are in cipher. I also think that ...

From Magneto's perspective, Stryker's actions were indicative and representative of humanity's perspective concerning mutants. As such, he identified humanity's disillusionment of mutants as being genocidal. Therefore, he saw it as only fair that, with him being mutant's "representative", he would reverse the situation against those of Stryker's yolk.

Because Wahyu was corrupt and Dagu and Rama figured it out during the raid (the guy in the apartment complex told Rama that Wahyu had been in the building many times before which he would only have known if he was in league with the criminals and Wahyu knew where Tama's office was). Jaka even told him he would go to jail as he had led an unsanctioned and ...

The thing in this movie that is not established very well, is that Grace has been on Pandora for many years. We do see glimpses of this: there are pictures of her avatar interacting with Na'vi children, and if I remember she also helped to set up things like schools, and taught some of the natives English. Clearly this has taken quite a bit of time, and ...

This was definitely a prank. Danny and Rusty didn't want Linus in on every meeting, but Linus insisted he be involved. So they pre-arranged with Matsui to start a Zen-type discussion about, basically, nothing. At the end, they were to make it look as if Linus' ramblings almost cost them a job, in the hopes that Linus would back away from his desire to be ...

When you drink Turkish coffee, the coffee sediment that is at the bottom of the cup is used to predict/foreseen the future somehow (Turkish custom) :) so when the first time she served him a coffee she saw in the coffee sediment that he will return for her. That is the reason why she was not surprised. And also sweet coffee means that you like the person you ...

Its obvious, and yet so sad. And Mitchel got the blunt of it. These two life long friends, at the edge of death, desperately search for water to survive. Sure they find it, but it was only the beginning of their and they're families death, because they did make it out alive. But they brought the demon of they're friendship along with them. It shows Mitchel ...

Probably because Lionel was trying to cure him once and for all rather than becoming dependant on the headphones, using them as a crutch. As an example, the King wouldn't have been able to use headphones at public speaking engagements. It's not like he could give up talking in public, so a more permanant cure would have been needed. All the headphones did ...

Now first of all, the previous movies wouldn't really clear that up either, they simply had completely different people and groups on their own, not related to the story or characters of this movie at all. The movie doesn't explicitly explain the whole policital situation, but that post-apocalyptic world it depicts is split into various smaller groups and ...

So, I am posting my interpretation of Interstellar. May be it is the one or may be not. So... when you just go into the wormhole, a never ending loop starts. So first things first, Cooper is chosen by NASA scientists or someone (OR somehow) to go in the wormhole and go to the foreign galaxy. Cooper and his fellow astronauts enter the wormhole, go to ...

Regarding questions 1 and 3: John saw (through the window) both men about to take their pills. He assumed that Sherlock would swallow the pill, so he decided to shoot. Regarding question 2: We don't know that, but if Sherlock was right in his deduction there was only one poisonous pill. From Baker Street wiki: Summing up his observations, Sherlock ...

Because he saw Splendid, Joe's heavily pregnant wife, get killed by the actions of Joe and the other War Boys, and immediately feels guilty for being part of her death. He tells this to Capable when she comes to check on him, and it's the main reason behind him changing sides. Also, factor in his desire to please Joe and 'be carried into Valhalla' by him, ...

Well, that's precisely LAW for you. Even if you understand well enough that certain person is guilty, you have to prove it by evidence. I remember this scene from the movie's last 15 minutes, where Jake Gylenhaal's character and Mark Ruffalo's character meet in the early hours. Gylenhaal tells Ruffalo that Arthur and Darlene lived door to door once. This ...

From what i remember Arthur was never ruled out, he was on the top of list of suspects. He was never arrested because one way or another something came in between whenever they decide to arrest him. Maybe its the difficulty in getting pass through the hurdles of law to make an actual arrest. they never had anything concrete. I am in no way an expert in laws ...

As explained, Jack does not truly gets Christmas. Furthermore, even if he saw gifts from Christmas Town, he might just have noticed they are small objects, with fun colors, and which are childish. Nevertheless, as we can see at the beginning, Halloween people are really enjoying frightening things and they are having fun with the creepiest jokes, so they did ...

In this link a psychologist analyzes the movie proving that Nina is a paranoid schizophrenic and that her psycotic break might be caused also by her mother; in particular it is said that: Nina is overshadowed by her controlling and emotionally abusive mother (played by Barbara Hershey) who is convinced she "gave up" her career for parenthood. So ...

Because Jackie is not ready and able to deal with AA and having a real sponsor, so instead she calls the now deceased Charlie. It's her form of therapeutic release.

It's pure ego. This has always been Walt's greatest sin: his pride and ego. Mike calls him out on it: Mike Ehrmantraut: We had a good thing, you stupid son of a bitch! We had Fring. We had a lab. We had everything we needed, and it all ran like clockwork. You could've shut your mouth, cooked and made as much money as you ever needed. It was perfect. But, ...

No, it isn't a loop. Inside the Tesseract, Cooper was freely "travelling" through time (but only one location, Murph's room) and giving signals we saw in the first part of the movie. As he is leaving the Tesseract towards the Saturn, he briefly encounters that moment when a "being" shook hands with Amelia and it turns out that that being was, much like the ...

To Xander Feng, the bridge is nothing but a favor to his allies and friends. In episode 5, the Vice president met him in a trade summit. When they're talking about the projects to be approved, the VP mentioned the Long Island Bridge; Feng stopped the conversation and asked a favor: to continue the lawsuit in the World Trade Organization for currency ...

Tapaswi was also very smart, he told jagat janani that sarfaraz was cheating her because he was living in Bruges and working in pakistani embassy (as he said) but there is no pakistani embassy in Bruges, but in Brussels which is 100 KMS away from that place.

I think that the whole movie is a metaphor. Simon is very unhappy with who he is. He sees the man he wants to be but that's very different than the man he is. James is the man he wants to be, Simon is the man he is. The whole movie is a constant battle within himself over the man he wants to be, and the man he is. In the end we see that whatever happens to ...

I think secretly he never really intended to return ashore if he failed, he felt guilty he survived Indianapolis whilst several if not all of his friends perished. For him, being taken by the shark is like an honourable discharge and he's going down to be reunited with his buddies from WW2.

Jesse got the poison online. He says so to Wendy himself in Half Measures: I found this stuff on the internet. Takes days to kick in. Just keep quiet and this won't ever come back to you. Since he has no reason to lie to her, really, and the type of poison is not elaborated on, we can surmise that this is a slow-acting poison that might be untraceable. ...

From the first episode, or maybe within the first few, we find out that Michael has done extensive planning for freeing his brother. This included getting the plans to the prison tattooed across his entire body. He also researched the legal procedures for getting himself sent to a maximum security prison. As he had no priors, the best way to get sent to a ...

According to the wiki, Walt prepares the Ricin twice. This answer explains that the Ricin wasn't used by Jesse as it's still in play. There is speculation that the ricin was bought on the internet - or that it wasn't Ricin at all. Brock later gets poisoned by Lily of the Valley which the hospital cannot detect. Conclusion is that Jesse didn't use Ricin ...

regarding her Son leaving her behind the chemical to become himself I have to disagree because of two reasons: 1.) The Doc asked "do you know where you want to go?" 2.) The Doc also said the Son thought she wouldn't come back. Because of that, my theory is the following: Similar to "Interstellar" its not really a story about reality or consciousness but ...

Well, while not being explained exactly and still left a bit of a mystery, it is not really a plot-hole in the context of the movie, but the whole point of the movie. A major theme of the movie is the difference between man and machine and the question if you can completely supress the human element from the decision making process and to which degree Alex ...

Because the fact that his own family member was doing all of this right under his nose would be enough to discredit him and his position as a member of law enforcement. No one would take him seriously, his name would come up in any searches related to the matter, and he'd likely never be able to find steady employment again or could face jail time himself. ...

By the time the expedition embarked, Weyland had fully revealed himself to the crew. As such, it was his directive that Shaw be allowed to join them for the final expedition without incident.

Consider too, that it was already hurt, that when it was hit by the log, it was not expecting it, so it took the damage without mitigation, and within the lore of the screenplay, it likely triggered a protocol (possible capture/death) that required it to remove evidence of its existence. Then there is this: screenwriters are God. :-)

May be the bug was in the harry's eye glasses because once he left his glasses at his girlfriend house for a little bit of time. There was also a scene which indicated it in the ending where the girl who were spying by harry was kissing her boyfriend with touching his eye wear.

First of all, the team fired at it. This means in the general direction of the Predator. Yes, they leveled the jungle in doing so, but between the Predators agility and its sophisticated camouflage, it was able to evade most of the damage laid down by the team. This doesn't mean it wasn't hurt, as we saw there was blood on the leaves, which Anna later shows ...
