i feel like it's possible that Charllie (Hugh Jackman) WAS about to tell Max that he didn't fight the last round, but it is very unlikely... I also feel like it would've ended better with Charlie saying 'I love you' to Max. I like the first one better, though.:D

Here is my point of view : After Cage killed the Alpha, it disappeared because he took its power and its place/identity in the Mimic system/hierarchy/body or whatever. I have one theory then : the Omega is a vital machine which gives life to all the Mimics. It has the exclusive power. Cage hasn't, nor the Alphas which are its guards and officers on the ...

I don't think any crucial evidence was missed, as I have to disagree with your premise. I've rewatched the scene in question. Childers is shot around the 28:20 mark in the film and it clearly shows the shooter is a machine gunner on the opposite roof top, not the crowd. I took a screenshot of the moment I refer to: You can clearly see the shooter is on ...

Since I've been talking about Interstellar a lot on these boards I decided to pick up the screenplay on Kindle. There's a line discussing the issue of sending data back through the wormhole in the scene where they first tell Cooper about the wormhole and the Lazarus missions, where Doyle says: Data transmission back through the wormhole is rudimentary, ...

At the end of the movie Cooper arrives at "Cooper station", a giant habitable space station with a cylindrical interior which was near Saturn at the time--many such stations were built, and apparently when Murph solved the gravity problem (by finding a theory of quantum gravity with the help of the data Cooper sent her from the black hole, see my answer here ...

TL;DR: It's up to you. Were the murders he committed justified? Does his repentance at the film's end and his adherence to Gandhian principles forgive his earlier actions? Long Answer: I think you need to first look at the movie again, scene by scene, before then deciding what it all means. Synopsis: Saket Ram is working peacefully as an archaeologist ...

There is no question of anyone being a terrorist. Saket Ram was a normal everyman who became religious fundamentalist due to incidents surrounding partition of India. Many incidents lead to his transformation from from a regular man to a fundamentalist and again many incidents lead to his re transformation. He is not suddenly convinced by his friend but his ...

It isn't one way communication. It's two way. You're assuming because we see no video logs returned that the communication was only one way - but this wouldn't make any sense. Firstly, the most probable explanation for Murph's comments at the end of the film about Dr. Brand being all alone is that she received a message from her saying that. This has ...

First of all, Brands equation was already solved. However that equation alone was not enough and Brand needed some additional data from a Black Hole's singularity for Plan-A (humans safely evacuating earth) to work. During the last scenes, we come to know that human race survived and Cooper recovers on a Space station, orbiting Saturn. So this was not ...

The data helped Murph solve the equation that allowed them to launch the space ship that you see towards the end of the movie orbiting the worm hole. The space ship was the one being developed in the NASA facility when Cooper and the others leave earth. I dont think the idea was to save all the humans on the plant but rather to save the human species. So ...

For the first question about how gravity could move the watch sideways, apparently the idea was that gravitational waves were being transmitted into the past. In Chapter 30 of The Science of Interstellar by Kip Thorne, the physicist who was the scientific consultant for the movie, it's said that Cooper is scooped out of the black hole by the tesseract, which ...

It's never explained. There are a few theories though: It's blood. It's simply darker than normal to indicate an even more sinister being. When Zorg (Gary Oldman) is called by Mr. Shadow, he starts to bleed it, suggesting that the mere force of evil in Mr. Shadow is enough to cause it. It's some type of residue, caused by contact with pure evil. This is ...

I believe that the existing theory that they were both in the league of shadows doesn't hold water. They were members at different times and there's no evidence that the two ever crossed paths under Raz Al Ghoul's roof. In addition Bane was excommunicated before Bruce ever joined up. However Bane was trained by the same man, he learned the same lessons. ...

It's difficult to know if it was a real contract. If it WAS, then yes, he did welch on it. The episode in question is Survival of the Fittest. At first it appears like they are making a standard deal, as the script shows: CROWLEY I can't deny I long to see those two digested once and for all. You have a deal. I suppose you want it in writing? DICK ...

There is the original (and misleading) connection, as stated in Season 2, and then the true connection, as stated in Seasons 4/5. Season 2: Throughout this season we learn more and more about these special children. At first it seemed that all their parents had been burned by the Yellowed Eyed Demon (aka Azazel), but it soon becomes clear there are ...

The angels brought him back, body and all - which apparently they can do. You correctly point out that he was cremated by his brothers, Sam and Dean. In Point of No Return we see his return: ...

TL;DR: It's likely from his father, although this explanation comes from the Japanese movies (not the original novels) and isn't elaborated on in the American films. Long Answer It's not really explained in the movie, but there is some information given in the original Japanese materials: Original novel: The Ring evolved from Ring, a 1991 Japanese ...

The Club in Newcastle wasn't opened by either Tyler nor Jack, so it's possible they never met Bob there: JACK Local 8 just started in Penns Grove. And, Bob said he was at fight club in Newcastle last week. TYLER Newcastle? Did you start that one? ...

TL;DR: Bane is VERY much a villain and does not help Batman in the film. Christopher Nolan envisaged and wrote him as villain. His actions throughout are cold blooded and cruel. Despite showing care for Talia, he is merciless in his destruction of all others, murdering at will and threatening to slaughter an entire city. Much of the theory is centred on ...


-4

I find the argument perfect enough to justify Bane's actions and why he didn't kill Batman. That, and the fact that Bane didn't directly kill any good person by himself throughout the movie (AFAIK), correct me if I am wrong. And his kind act of saving the young Talia from the dungeon exemplifies that he was good in nature. Bane only killed the bad people: ...

There is a clue to this in the dialogue of the movie itself, where Tyler and the Narrator are discussing their fathers: Narrator: I don't know my dad. I mean, I know him, but... he left when I was like six years old. Married this other woman, had some other kids. He like did this every six years, he goes to a new city and starts a new family. Tyler ...

TL;DR: We don't know how Suki/The Scribbler got her powers. It's suggested she, like a few others, just had them. She changed the machine, which led to others becoming stronger. Long Answer The Scribbler was based off a graphic novel written by Daniel Schaffer: Usually we could go to the source material for some detailed information on it, but it's ...

The thing is we don't know what happened after he left both parents. Perhaps he reunited with his parents years later and met Ana during a visit. Perhaps he met her in a totally unrelated event, like he did in the space ship. The details don't really matter, and the movie, wisely, doesn't dwell on them. The theme of the movie, choice and consequence, is ...

You've pretty much summed up all the information we know. In the novel, there's a few extra bits of info, but not much. You've already discussed King Benny's wait for revenge when he was younger. Lorenzo does say this in the book: When my friends and I were young... Hell's Kitchen was run by a man named King Benny. When he was young, King Benny was a ...

Gargantua was a "real" black hole, but with a little artificial extra "installed" into it. Neither does the movie say that all black holes are artificial, nor that this wasn't a real black hole. It is true that the "Bulk Beings" somehow planted the tesseract in the black hole in order to save Cooper and facilitate his time-defying communication with his ...

if mann would have been sane, and just joined the crew back to earth, then TARS would not have been able to collect the quantum gravity data from the blackhole.. and cooper would never have communicated with murph, and plan A would never have succeeded and humanity would have died. Also since the first half of the movie happened, and Cooper had communicated ...

Okay, so several people have mentioned that the planet's density will have an effect on its escape velocity. This is true. The total mass of the planet is: M=(4π/3)R³ρ, where ρ is its average density. The escape velocity squared is: v² = 2GM/R = (8πG/3)R²ρ = k²R²ρ, where I've defined k²=8πG/3. So we see that the equation for escape velocity, in terms of its ...

The Babadook is really a metaphor for the mother's grief. Once summoned, it initially possesses the mother leading to her becoming a monster of sorts, treating her son badly and hurting the family pet. This continues throughout the movie, this problematic mix of the "good" mother and the Babadook mother which controls her dark thoughts and feelings. When ...

While Ankit presents a very reasonable rundown of the scene in his answer, when I carefully rechecked the shootout in particular, I came to the contradictory conclusion that he at least is opposed to the Basterds, which still leaves it unclear if he's entirely dedicated to the Germans or just minding his own business (or if he maybe even was a double agent ...

The data transmission isn't entirely one way. Remember, that they in fact got the signals from the first exploration missions (the 12 people visiting their respective planets 10 years ago) sent through the wormhole. For whatever reason those signals are rather simple, but they definitely got them, because they are the reason why they chose to visit those 3 ...

Short and simple: many jokes are based on the problems of the different characters. In other words there has to be a reason to laugh at. And one reason could be other peoples problems. The girls have these problems because the authors want to. Maybe next episode Max buys an island in the caribbean for one dollar on ebay or Caroline wins two million dollars ...

The same question was also asked on Quora, with various interesting answers, even if it's hard to say which one is correct and they all sound quite plausible. Everyone seems to agree though, that both Lander and Ranger are very much capable of planetary lift-offs and could as well have left earth on their own. Remains the question why they chose a ...

I'm not sure of where they are supposed to be located, but you could probably assume a large city in the northeastern US, probably NYC (they may say within the series, I just don't remember). Cost of living is not cheap in big cities, even with two jobs. With that said, first, they are only working as waitresses in a greasy spoon, so they are not getting ...

My assumption was that systems are defined by the central mass, a star, large planet, or black-hole. Since Gargantua is a super-massive black-hole, it may have many other stars and planets captured into near and far orbits, and even extra-planar orbits (above or below the plane of Gargantua's planets). These far or off-plane systems would be much closer ...

But in the context of whole monologue, this line - "If someone stands in the way of true justice... you simply walk up behind them and stab them in the heart.", tries to suggest that since Bruce's parents were standing in between justice, LOS walked behind them and stabbed them, they just didn't foresee the positive outcome(city galvanizing) and just ...

Has anyone thought of the chain react of collisions in a three dimensional sense? My guess is that shrapenel would go off in all different directions hitting other satellites at different altitudes and this would naturally snowball into a field of debris at a multitude of different altitudes thus being able to hit them at the varying altitudes depicted in ...

I was watching the movie for the second time this afternoon and when they reached the Gargantua end of the wormhole it occurred to me that just dropping in at a dead stop near such a huge gravity well would make for a short, unhappy life. Unless you arrive with the right velocity to be in some kind of orbit around the black hole. That made me think there ...

No, he was not gay or in the closet, he loved his son so much he was willing to try to kiss a man in a desperate attempt to accept homosexuality therefore being able to accept his son

You are certainly right in that the 3 planets they visit are part of one system and the other 9 planets are part of other system(s), however this does not mean that they are located in entirely different parts of the universe. And in fact as you yourself state correctly, they could not control the exit location of the wormhole, it's a point to point ...

Re: the conversation Mrs. Hughes heard through the grating. Mrs. Hughes, we know, told Carson. Carson no doubt blabbed to His Lordship, as usual. His Lordship told his wife, Lady Grantham. And Her Ladyship blabbed to O'Brien, as usual. O'Brien, of course, told Thomas. Either that, or O'Brien and/or Thomas was lurking in the hallway, and overheard the ...

Edit: Original answer was wrong so has been replaced* Firstly, credit to @Hypnosifl for spotting this on this question. The communication was two way, but it was very rudimentary going from the wormhole back to Earth. From the screenplay: Cooper: And if their world didn't show promise? Doyle: Hence the bravery. Cooper: Because you don't have ...

The logic that was used was that he sent each piece of data, through the watch, using morse code. The second hand in the watch became stuck and effectively continually moved between two seconds in either short or long motions, signifying the dot and dash of morse code. Of course, sending the data would likely have taken a colossal amount of time. But in ...

From appearances, and the way he constantly fishes pieces out of his mouth and puts them on his plate and picks his teeth, and also according to online sources (like here and here), it's a horrible, cold piece of leftover steak which he was eating before he passed out drunk. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear to be in the script, where circumstances are a bit ...

This is what I imagined after watching the movie: The shuttles could carry people and little (or no) cargo in and out of a planet's atmosphere, but a big rocket was needed to carry all the cargo needed for the long journey to Saturn and into the wormhole.

Clair doesn't call Ben nor Mike, she calls Christine. You already said that it's a second phone and in fact it's Christine's cell phone that Mike confiscated exactly to prevent her being called by Clair (or anyone else who could have "dangerous" information, I don't remember if he exactly knew about Clair). That is the only reasonable explanation as you said ...

This isn't answered in the film and I can't find any interviews where it was addressed. In the film, the army is based on the real-life Terracotta Army, as evidenced by this interview with the director. Thus, the film was supposed to give the "real" reason as to why the Terracotta Army exists today, as opposed to the actual reason - to act as burial art for ...

My guess is that the wormhole had to be orbiting some object in order not to drift away or just stay in the same location (since we know that the solar system is moving around the center of the galaxy, and Saturn itself is moving across its orbit around the sun), and Saturn could have been the only planet with the correct mass to hold the wormhole in orbit ...

I'm not sure this is such a surprising reaction. AS you already comment, Jeff had a broken leg and was thus fairly immobile. Stella was a care home nurse who is older than Jeff or Lisa. In the apartment, rushing Lisa, is Thorwald - a man that they both believe to be a murderer and who is much bigger than either of them. So consider these few points: ...

I think the details what caused earth's current state are left a bit unclear and that on purpose. What we know is, that there are two different aspects to earth's devastating state: There is the blight which attacks and destroys the crops, causing a major sustenation problem on earth and in parallel intoxicating the atmosphere, gradually making it ...

Tony cured Pepper. Tony perfected Extremis to regrow his breast bone and ribs which were cut open in a circle for insertion of the electromagnet/arc reactor. So, he needed a perfected or reversible Extremis to perform the surgery because of the missing bones and then to be cured of Extremis afterward. I believe without Extremis that he would die from the ...
