My interpretation is that Borden originally cloned himself only once using Tesla's apparatus, and subsequently shared his life with the clone. Angier wanted to know Borden's secret, so Borden cryptically answered by Writing 'Tesla'. Angier then went to Tesla ultimately to be cloned, but presumably he didn't want to share his life with a clone, so he ...

At the beginning, he was asked to come to General Brigham's office. The General wanted Cage to show the war from the front ... from where the action was. Then Cage refused and then tried to blackmail the General. Cage thinks he's getting his way as he's walking out the building, but the General is just lining him up for failure as he has the guards take him ...

Don Corleone wanted nothing to do with the drug trade. As is apparent from this meeting. When Sonny spoke up to Sollozzo and says, "Now wait a minute. You're telling me you can guarantee...?" The way Sonny delivered the line and his actions while doing clearly indicate that Sonny (and maybe the Corleones) are interested in the proposal, seeing as he ...

No reputation for comments. Before you start making conclusions, there needs to be agreement on assumptions. The most important being how Cage is traveling back in time. My interpretation is that the Omega still retains its power to reset, it was not lost as some have claimed. When Cage died the first time, his blood mixed with the Alphas and he was reset ...

How do you teleport yourself back in time after you've been killed? The omega was able to send alphas back in time, after their death, because the omega still existed. The entire point of the movie is that killing the omega removes this ability from the aliens.

Regarding the "Michael Corleone says hello" line in Godfather II -- I really think the line was added later in post to solve a script problem. If you look at Danny Aiello closely in the scene, his lips aren't moving when you hear the line. I think the line was added later because there was no scene that explains how Pentangeli came to the conclusion that ...

To get rid of Jesse. It's my speculation, i think Gus is not able to kill Jesse directly because of Walt. But he can create situation where he can get killed by his own. So killing Thomas is good way to make Jesse to create trouble for his own self. It was Walt's involvement which saved Jesse in the end otherwise Jesse might died that day.

Given that Tomas was involved in the street level dealing of the Blue Meth and that as a child doesn't have much time to establish his or her reputation of honor; it is fair enough to assume Gus considered him a threat to company security. Dead men talk no tales.

May be they are watering their plant/weeds with human blood or use it as fertilizer. The aliens may become short of supply in their planet and found our planet suitable for them. So, they sent the tripods to invade us and to make their food, they use us as water/fertilizers.

It's like deciding limits. Everybody has different boundaries, a thief can justify that he doesn't kill anybody so he is better than a killer. Similarly everybody sees different crimes differently. For someone tax fraud is nothing but gambling is OK or vise versa. Similarly Ted is also a person which has double standards, he justified tax fraud for saying ...

If (as some do) you exclude the sequels, then yes, it is magick. Due to his direct experience of the virtual reality, the real reality, and the signals that interconnected these two, he was in the position to realize that the real world follows very similar (if not identical) rules. The literature of magick and neoplatonism strongly describe the world as ...

They're made up terms, which the director explained in an interview. From IMDb (I've added a link to every name to further explain each reference): Director [Steven] Soderbergh, in an interview with TV Guide, explained: "First of all, [screenwriter] Ted Griffin and I completely made the terms up. We felt we had to come up with some funny, Damon ...

There is a point in the movie where Emily Blount's character, Rita, speculates that Humans may be the first species to be able to effectively fight back against this alien, because of how we can absorb the time traveling ability when exposed to their blood. Both Rita and Cage are, at different points in time, exposed to the blood of an alpha, and gain the ...

Thor, being the God of Thunder, can summon his hammer as well as being the only guy to lift his hammer. The reason he cannot summon it after crashing on the field is because it needs to be energized by thunder to to do his bidding, without which it's just a heavy hammer. Only an electric force field around the hammer allows it to hover to him. That's why you ...

I think it is not that he cannot do it, but that he is emotionally very much shaken and disappointed, since this is right after Loki tried to kill him (which is what that fall was supposed to do). What we see in that scene is hesitation, not failure. In the next Thor scene, we see him lift it. He either can do so or cannot. There is no "he can lift it, but ...

Agreeing that there was a lot of ambiguity in what was actually shown, the interpretation I prefer is this: Tomas and his employers weren't able to end their association peacefully because they didn't trust him to walk away and not cause them trouble in the future. Maybe they tried to "fire" him and he didn't want to go, and the disagreement escalated ...

The red mist was blood. That's why Tom Cruise's character was so freaked out when he saw it running down the walls in the basement. The tripods were essentially grinding up the humans and spraying the pulp on the ground. In the book, along with the fighting tripods, there were harvester machines that gathered the humans and placed them in metal baskets. ...

I always thought it was a pride thing. That, coupled with him wanting to live beyond his means. Throw in a dash of irresponsibility (or immaturity) into his character as well. When he thought the money came from his rich aunt that he never knew, he did the first thing people new to money do; he spent irrationally and bought a nice car. Just read any ...

It is never stated exactly why Tomas died or who pulled the trigger/gave the order. All we can do is speculate on what led to his death. In my opinion, Gus gave the order as a way to say, "I make the rules, not you."

I believe that it puts him in a universe where he wouldn't have been tased in the first place, thus placing him where he WOULD have woken up, in the helicopter.

He was in the murder house simply because he died there. If a person dies in the murder house, the ghost of that person is stuck there, regardless of whether that person lived there or not. As in the case of Hayden, even though she didn't live in the murder house, her ghost remained there.

George Romero termed "Walker" in his zombie horror films as a term for the living dead who could still walk around (see first 5 minutes of Land of the Dead). Other movies and films have adopted it as a word for zombies as its a faux pas to say the word zombie in a zombie film

Back to the future was(is) a very popular movie, there is no real importance or connection except to give you a few kicks

Just a cameo which only raised a bit of inconsistency. This film takes place in 1882 and is inconsistent with the Back To The Future timeline, which places Doc in the west during 1885 and later.(Source: Wikipedia)

She talks about our consciousness (a state of awareness, a state of matter) that is immortal and it never dies after death. She proves that at the end of the movie by ascending into heaven (higher planes of existences) when she becomes omnipresent cosmic consciousness (Ultimate Human, Universe itself, enlightened being, a godlike being) by being fully ...

I always took this to be about Mike. One of the biggest reasons Walt is upset at this moment are the "legacy costs" that you mention and Mike's insistence on paying them. This money is cutting into what Walt thinks that they should be making. Also, Mike says something along the lines of "I'll run the business side and the two you will just cook," which ...

No, the murders did not happen in reality (or at least not in a physical way). The whole of the movie's story actually pans out solely inside the head of Malcolm Rivers, a convicted murderer under treatment by Dr. Malick. Those 10 people are all representations of the different persona Malcolm houses inside his personality (the title of the movie is already ...

I think the biggest thing you are missing here is each individual outpost is lead to believe they (Vika and Jack) are the last remaining people on Earth. Since they are the last remaining people, why would there need to be a large telecommunications network supporting the entire Earth? They'd only need enough to communicate with Jack and Vika. In doing so, ...

I know this is old, but I thought I'd throw in on account of the unanswered question...to make their plan work, they need to kill someone for a body. But in killing this man who may have had a family as well, they are stooping to the level that the leaders of the gangs did when they killed Slevin's father.

Omega's blood was seeping into Cage, which allows cage to reset the day right from the beginning. Everything that happened before Cage got down the helicopter could not happen because Omega died and the situation will change when Omega dies. Fact: When something dies by e.g guns or grenades, blood will seep out from the wound. For Omega's blood, it seeped ...

This question makes a lot of sense and I think that any viable answer will be a stretch at best (the real answer being, of course, the more interesting/suspensive narrative). First, the events after the invasion - as described by Malcolm - tell us that Jack #49 is somehow special. He had doubts, curiosity (that book he took), he had love for the Earth (that ...

This particular clone which acts as a hero in the movie was different than others: Following dialogue between Beech and Sykes suggests the same: Sykes: You've risked all our lives, everything. What makes you think he's different? Beech: She does. This can also be guessed from the scene where other clone does not hesitate to get into a fight with him. ...

My Personal Interpretation: Walt cares for Jesse Walt cares for Jesse, I mean, in the previous episodes when Tuco beats Jesse badly, Walt gets so worked up and goes to Tuco with full rage and destroys the place and gets the money (may be he wouldn't have gone to a place full of gangsters if it's just for the money especially a guy who cares about his ...

Not to say there aren't some very interesting ideas here... But I think in the end Charlie is very obviously about to say I love you, as indicated by other plot hints like max calling him Charlie throughout the movie and finally calling out dad several times as he pushes through the crowd to reach Hugh Jackson. Also when max begs him to fight the last round ...

The dialogue you cite actually comes after Myra sees Hans through her window and after she already talked a little bit with Charlie about Mrs Kieslowski. She was quite sure she could drag the whole situation out a bit, just playing her roommate and waiting what happens. But once she saw Hans walking to the hospital to visit her, she became increasingly ...

I saw that movie and I assumed he picked up on tells in her body language and facial movements.

What I understood was: The plants absorb power of the sun and Superman took that from them to regain his own strength. It wasn't made clear but it was implied that Superman ripped out Green Arrow's arm. This was hinted twice: the outdoor scene when Batman and Superman in normal clothes were conversing (the keyword "torn" was mentioned by Batman) and again ...

Cooking at the proper temperature will ensure that any potential virus is killed. This is why there are recommended temperatures for properly cooking steak and chicken; that heat kills viruses like salmonella and such. This is also why menus at restaurants mention properly cooked meals, and some will not serve "runny" eggs because of the risk of ...

First off, you have to die first for the infection to turn you into a walker. Second, as far as I know, the people at Terminus were eating humans whom they killed and who haven't turned yet, and who probably can't turn anymore, since we could see in S05E01 that they chopped them and cut them up in portions. This means that even if the infection was ...

I would say that Dylan Rhodes would have planted that card in Thaddeus's pocket, and would have told Four Horsemen to make it look like they did it. That would make him look like an idiot in front of them.

I believe that Leon is Wills father. throughout the film will's father is a very mysterious figure and not much about him is known. The things we do know are that he was once in the ghetto, and that he was known for giving away his own time. So it can be assumed that Will's father is someone who does what thinks is best for the world in an unselfish ...

As we know, Gus is an extremely careful and intelligent man and he is in fact always ahead of Walt and everyone else. And I think it was exactly the fact that Brock was poisoned (which we know Gus didn't do) that made him doubt the situation, which is told to him by Jesse during their meeting right before. Jesse: He's not sick, he was poisoned. Gus: ...

The title of the movie says it all the ides of March the assassination of Julius Caesar he was stabbed literally in his back and then stabbed by the rest of the ppl. So this means that Stephen is going to symbolically stab Morris in the bank by revealing this information and let the ppl, media, other politicians verbally stab Morris of his character issues. ...

I think that was the beauty of the movie, we really did not know if he was insane committing these crimes or insane imagining himself committing these crimes. Or if all, some or none of these events actually took place. Maybe he is in a nut ward imagining all this?! The movie started as a first person narrative and can be assumed to have continued as ...

I wouldn't think so because; the writers at Marvel (presumably) understand how time travel works. Meaning if Wolverine wasn't saved by Stryker in the movie and ends up not having Adamantium claws that would mean that all of the Wolverine movies as well as the first three X Men movies have an inconsistency. He could meet Stryker again in the future/past(?) ...

This is a lone soldier, behind enemy lines, surrounded by individuals that it might not be able to identify as civilian versus enemy combatant. It is also weak itself, needing to drain power from its victims to recharge itself. It stands to reason that the best tactic is to pick off the weaker adversaries first, gaining strength and dwindling the enemy ...

I just finished watching it. From what I gathered, it was about depression. The world he was in was very bleak, and he was constantly stomped on and such. Many things were exagerrated and made much darker than need be. For instance, his job was in a very dark environment figuratively along with his relationship with his mother and even the scene depicting ...

It wasn't a miraculous breach in the dome either! The plan was always for that genius man to sacrifice his life and shoot an arrow at the dome when lightning struck. It was only once that guy was killed that Katniss realised what he was trying to do and done it for herself, also if Katniss wasn't put back into the hunger games then they would have just gone ...

They didn't fly the Tardis in. Galifray is timelocked, they can't get in. They can however enter the painting in the same way the Zygons did. The Doctors can't fly into the Tower of London because it's been "Tardis proofed". Instead they walk into the painting. What is a little unclear is whether they can travel back into the painting, I suspect so as they ...
