Optimus Prime has been able to fly since the end of Transformers (2) : Revenge of The Fallen through, Transformers (3) : Dark of the Moon to, Transformers (4) : Age of Extinction. He achieved flight power from Jetfire, a Decepticon who had defected to the Autobots. Jetfire sacrifices himself towards the end of Transformers 2 and relinquishes some of his ...

I haven't seen the movie but it is based upon the real life case of The West Memphis Three. As your quote shows Damien Echols was sentenced to die but the death penalty in the USA is a long and complicated process. When someone is sentenced to death in the United States the case is automatically sent for a direct review in state appellate court to ensure ...

She might not have ordered anything particularly severe that we saw but she was complicit with the brutal treatment of the slaves at the house, including Broomhilda. Her brother adored her and she could easily have used that influence to ease the plight of the people there but she chose not to and merely enjoyed the luxury of her life off their backs. She ...

A katana was generally sharp and relied on that fact to damage and cut through armour. However, dragging a tip on the floor for a short while is unlikely to cause any actual damage to the edge. I have not seen the film so I cannot comment on any other reasons though. It would be unlikely to be something that a samurai would regularly do though. The ...

I know this is a kind of old topic but here is a link that you might like! Walking Dead is a Breaking Bad sequel Basically, it is a research made by HitFlix that has gone viral recently. It shows that AMC's has been deliberatly putting signs that both shows are in the same universe, some fans going has far as saying that the blue meth is the cause of the ...

His motivation for helping the FBI can be considered threefold: Getting rid of competitors/rivals/enemies Access to FBI files, resources and intel, to fill the blanks in his own vast "empire" His interest in Elizabeth Keen Getting rid of competitors/rivals/enemies As we start out in the series, it is very unclear why Red has chosen to surrender himself ...

Early in the film, they tell Thomas that their biggest rule is only Runners enter the maze, no one else. The best way to get people new to an area to do what you tell them to do? Tell them there's something out there that will hurt them. Now, there is actually something out there that will kill you, but it's clearly shown to not take an immediate effect. ...

They have seen them, for example from the window. By that quote they meant that no one has spend the night with them outside the Glade, and then come back in the morning.

Him hating all the white people is a bit of a stretch, after all that white Dr. Shultz did for him. However, hating all the Candies is not a wee bit of a stretch. Covering his track is also a good motive: random slaves are not very likely reveal (or even be asked) who killed their hated masters when some sheriff or a marshal come to investigate, but Calvin ...

Earlier in the movie, Bond had been tasked with preventing Silva's distribution of the names of MI6's undercover agents Yes, that was explicitly designed to be a failure. We can confirm that from Director Sam Mendes's Audio Commentary on Blue-Ray release. In Extra #4 "The Death of Bond" he says, about the opening sequence: To me, what's special about ...

My guess is that time reset is triggered when an Alpha or Cage (with Alpha blood) dies. Time will always be reset to a certain "spawn point". Spawn point for time loop is set to 24 hours prior to the time of "infection" with blood/time of first death upon gaining the time loop ability (which is in both cases the same). The omega did not prevent its down ...

The hard drive, or rather the agent lists it contained, is not merely forgotten. In fact M mentions it to Bond and Tanner after interrogating Silva once apprehended: Let me know what you recover from his computer. Has he transmitted the lists? If so, to whom? I want this resolved. This still leaves it a bit open what exactly happened to the hard drive ...

Being a "train baby", Yona has highly developed hearing ability. The director said in an interview that he felt the need to distinguish the people born on the train from those born on earth. Thus, the "train babies" perceive the noise of the train differently (it's natural to them). As these people were born in a dark environment, their sight is hindered, ...

First episode of season two shows Claire looking at the news of Barnes' death. Her momentary pause and small hand gesture indicate that she has her own thoughts about the death, most likely concerning Frank's involvement. Does she discuss them with Frank? Unlikely. It reflects their mysterious relationship. She knows, he knows, but it isn't said explicitly. ...

Ok a couple of things spring to mind. 1) Mimi is a drug addict, as revealed in the song 'light my candle'. It could be said that a drug addict would not have full concideration to the consequences of her actions. http://www.metrolyrics.com/light-my-candle-lyrics-rent.html 2) Roger recognises something in her that reminds him of his previous partner, and ...

How about this explanation: It is Omega that resets the time, not Cage. It does so automatically, reflexively, in response to Alpha's death. Now that Cage has acquired this "link" with Omega, it's his death that triggers Omega's reflex. The time to reset to might not be a simple "X hours back" rule, but is set by Omega to a point sufficiently back from the ...

It was my understanding that the person who found and took it, informed the DEA that it had been taken. All I know for sure is, the writing was a bit sloppy. It was really just a vehicle to get Arnold back in the Action game, although there wasn't much action (in a stuntman sort of way).

I actually thought about that as well and the only answer that I could come up with was that it's just an inconsistency in the plot... They obviously blew up the pile of money to prevent anyone from finding out that they grabbed a part of it, which is quite clever as there's really no way to find out how much of it that was lost in the explosion. The only ...

It is a way to basically blame the Maya for what the Spanish later did to them when they invaded and destroyed all the native populations. It is a victim blaming quote. Oh, and the Maya did not harvest people to sacrifice. That was the Aztecs, and it wasn't on that large of a scale.

There is no canon source I've ever read that confirms or denies this (or discusses it at all), and I'm pretty sure Lucas wouldn't even entertain the question. Ewoks were roughly (very roughly) based on the Viet Cong and their defeating of the American troops. They are scrappy, camoflaged and deceptively smart. I would find it hard to believe that Lucas ...

According to Damien Karras, the demon's reaction to the tap water could mean that the possession is not genuine. This would therefore weaken his case for an exorcism. So, it could be that the demon was deliberately reacting to the tap water so Karras would not get permission to perform the exorcism.

The conversation between Skyler and Walter in Ozymandias about Hank goes like this: Walt is raving at Skyler, knowing full-well the police are listening: Walter: ..Tow the line, or you will wind up just like Hank. Skyler Walt. Tell me what happened. Where is Hank? Please. We need to know. Walter: You're never gonna see Hank again. He crossed ...

This conversation took place on phone when Waly calls Skylar after Hank's death. I don't think Walt ever said that he killed Hank. If I correctly remember the exact dialogue he just said "You are neve going to see Hank again", after which everone bursts into tears, including Walt. Everyone knows that Hank was about to arrest Walt but Walt was still ...

If this is about the phone call after he took Holly, the reason for the call was that he knew the police would be listening and he wanted to make them believe that Skyler was not a willing participant in any of his criminal activities. It was all fake, and she understood that. Some of the things he said were inconsistent with the facts Skyler already knew. ...

Optimus got that missile in his body which make him unable to do self-repair or morph to a better vehicle. However once Cade remove that, he can do it again. How can he morph to another and better vehicle? Well, they were call Transformer for god sake and they have Sparks, their source of life which allow them to do all those self repair, morphing, ...

My take was that at that point, Walt felt the only way he was going to keep his family together and potentially win back Skyler was to be 100% honest with her. He pretty much told her everything in the last season, except for a few minor details. Plus, Jesse was still alive and Jack had his cash, and he knew he had to come clean before she found out from ...

For the reference, the test scene can be watched here. Kay and Zed are observing the participants take the test, and discussing them. The whole thing is absurd: the chairs are good only to crouch inside, but not to do any work (like taking a simple test) in them; the test are sealed in a way that makes them hard to open (the paper rips easily, the pencil ...

The interesting thing about the film (and the book it is based on) is that Jamal knows answers to questions (and many of them in a row) - which he should not have known otherwise. However, due to co-incidence, there have been situations in his life (fortunate and unfortunate) which cause him to know the answers to all the question (and this is what the ...

Did she know that where her wings are? Definitely not, when her wings got removed, she doesn't became aware of it because of liquid she drunk. She got to know it at next morning. After that event so much time has been passed and never mentioned that she know where her wings are. She doesn't have far-sight or witch ball to know where is her wings are, they ...

That scene wasn't actually for real, but just a sexual fantasy of her. First lets look at the facts, Kate was actually in the shower, while her husband stood at the sink outside. So where would that mystery man raping her have come from (her husband still stood outside doing nothing)? Add to this that, as you said yourself, this isn't alluded to in any way ...

Even if these thing might not qualify as evidence in the court, it could still help Hank's ongoing investigation If it did not help a court prosecution (i.e. being inadmissible evidence), the DEA would not have allowed Hank to investigate. Note that when he was going after Fring he had to keep most of his investigation secret from the DEA itself. It ...

During the episode, the writers tried hard to leave it ambiguous as to whether the monster was real or not. There are two things during the episode that really make you think that it was real. During the blanket scene, for a moment the blanket comes off, and we see a blurred grey-alien-looking creature : As he/she/it is leaving, there is a flash of ...

The Matrix, as Morpheus explains, is styled on the 'boom' of humanity: late 20th century earth. Everything about 'normal' life is replicated within the simulation, so yes the occupants of the Matrix will have sex, get pregnant and eventually give birth: believing the baby to be of their genetic creation. However, in the 'Desert of the Real', babies are not ...

All things that happen in the matrix are all just an illusion, a trick to the mind to all those human sleeping in a pod to become battery for the machine. Even if they do sex in the dream world, well there are all just a dream. There is no routing of sperm to other female haha. All babies are created using IVF - in vitro fertilisation. There is no ...

We can see in the first movie that they are plugged in from everywhere (genitals not needed to be shown in the shot). And since we know that in the matrix there is a program for everything. We can deduct that there is a program in charge of routing the sperm to the right female. For those of you thinking about cloning it doesn't work because they would have ...

Hooli was their main source of income, until their own thing took off. They were employed at Hooli as entry level members of the staff. One piece of evidence for that is the fact that, as Erlich and Big Head are getting into Hooli to attend Richard's meeting with Gavin Belson, you can see Big Head swipe his card at the turnstile, indicating he already works ...

An epic quote condensing the tragedy of the human condition into two words. Nothing and everything. Nothing refers to the pure materialistic value of property, gold, silver jewleries, food, water, land etc. This does not make Jerusalem special; other places are equally bestowed with such goods, hence it is worth nothing more than any other city on earth. ...

There were lots of noises and phenomena that the characters experienced in the episode, each time there were two possible explanations given, a rational one and one that attributed it to a hidden creature. At the end of the episode it is show that the creatures do not exist so this must mean that the rational explanations for the noises/phenomena were true. ...

You are not grasping the central theme. What the antagonist wants is for society to understand that he and her sister did nothing wrong, but incapable of that, he settled for Oh Dae-su. This is revealed by the scene where he stabs Oh's friend for perpetuating the rumors that his sister is a slut, Oh's friend represents society, anyway... Everything the ...

In the cartoon from the 80s they were abandoned on his front doorstep, and he adopted them. i don't know their origin in the movies. I just remember when my sister used to watch the TV show. This detail stuck with me for some reason. I'll check to see if I can get an episode number and air date... update(according to wikipedia): "A Chipmunk Reunion" ...

I guess there was a dialogue where the host said and I don't remember the exact dialogue, but it was something like this "No chai wallah can come from the slums and become a millionaire. Only person has done it so far and that's me." I am pretty sure there was such a line which establishes the fact that the host himself had a rags to riches story ...

I believe that "this is my show" is meant to tell us that the host wants to be the show's only star. Due to his success and back story, Jamal was becoming very popular. The host knew that should this chaiwalah win the ultimate prize, his popularity would explode and eclipse his own. Jamal would become the show's biggest star overnight. The host's ego ...

Well it never been explained in the show, how the Others got their wealth. One can only assume with the mystic power of the island granting it to Jacob as the protector of the Island for 2000 years, allowing Jacob to get out from the Island, recruiting various people and accumulating wealth through various means necessary, which is also not explain in the ...

Clitoris, though it only rhymes with a specific pronunciation (cli-TO-ris instead of CLI-toris). It's discussed on the episode's Wiki page which also explains George's bizarre name suggestions (e.g. Loleola) and includes this little tidbit: According to the "Inside Look" from the DVD, the writers had trouble coming up with a name for Jerry's girlfriend, ...

I don't think they actually think about what happened after "mother wen mad". Grace explains her experience of their death like this Grace: I tried to wake you up... But you didn't move. I said to myself: "It's happened... I've killed my own children". I put the rifle to my forehead and pressed the trigger... But nothing happened, and instead of the ...

I wondered that myself when watching it, but in fact it's actually explained right in X-Men: First Class. When Hank examines Raven's cells, he tells her that the same mutation making her transformable also slows her aging process: You got to see this. Your genes are extraordinary, you know that? Your cells age at half the rate of a normal human. When ...

There are multiple ways to interpret the ending, and ultimately I don't think we can point to one of them and say "That is the right ending; the other one is just wrong." I think the screenwriter was happy to leave that uncertainty, because horror flourishes better in an atmosphere where things are uncertain. To start with what's relatively certain... It ...
