Lord Katsumoto wanted to "open" the Emperor's eyes to show him how him listening to the counsel of Omura and his cronies is killing off the old ways of the Japanese culture (and of the ways of the Samurai: honor, loyalty, sacrifice) by embracing the ways of the "west". The Emperor was blinded by all his other counselors trying to get him to "improve" the ...

Well Barney owed Church because Church wanted the control of the island back. The island produces cocain and is used by the CIA (maybe to gain money from it and finance black operations). In "The Expendables 1" Barney kills Munroe who previously killed the general. Munroe was a EX-CIA Agent. Besides the fact that Barney kills Munroe (who may have cooperated ...

Based on this post-production script treatment from the Kubrick Archive, the impact of the explosion caused Earl to become unconscious and stop breathing: 75 INT. BOMBED FACTORY--DAY The patrol moves carefully through the gutted shell of a building. The clink of their gear as they walk sounds loud in the unnatural silence. CRAZY EARL stops to ...

The out-of-universe explanation is indeed that Aladdin wouldn't have looked like the good guy if he had done it. However, this question can be circumvented by having the GENIE proposing it ("Hey Al, all that's a fake problem ! What if your girlfriend wish it for you ? You can still free me afterward ! No, no, it doesn't bother me at all. What will it take, ...

Sullivan was never linked to final string of executions and his duplicity was never brought to light. Nothing was presented to the audience to suggest Dignam learned of it somehow, though it's likely he suspected it. That being the case, it's more likely he was seeking retribution for Queenan's death.

This isn't a gory scene in the movie, but just a simple plot point to show how easily you can get promoted during the war. The explosion that kills Crazy goes off behind him, and Crazy lands on his side. The medic arrives and flips him onto his back. If there was any visible damage. I guess it's implied that it's on Crazy's back which we can't see from the ...

He's in a trans. He found a case with two million dollars and all he owned was a beat up truck and renting a trailer to reside in with Carla. He was just a hard working welder. He wasn't cut out for this like Carson told him at the hospital. You find something like that you have to find a way to stash it forever. Especially after seeing dead people in an ...

The mexicans driving the pick up truck shooting the buck shot at Moss. They quickly cut his tires and went after him for the missing money. They didn't want to kill Moss so he'd be able to tell them where the money is. Poor Moss was providing a generous humanitarian effort to the mexican who asked him the previous evening for agua. These were the same men, ...

The cattle gun Chigurh used was with him while he sat frozen like a statue. Carla wouldn't call the coin toss so he got up slowly and pointed it at her forehead. Her last words were "now I know why the sheriff told me about this." He took her car keys, left the cattle gun behind and was on his way to retirement...sort of...Chigurh was in a vehicle accident ...

I was sentenced to the same psychiatric hospital as Anton Chigurh in September 1979. I caught up with him at a gun show in Houston Texas while he recovered from a compound fracture due to a car accident. This accident permanently impaired Chigurh. He claims it wasn't his fault that someone else ran the traffic light....I don't believe him. To answer your ...

you know saturn is called "father time" so put the illuminati god with symbolism and reference and you can see why they chose to put a time portal next to the planet of "father time".Its just another way for the pagans to pay trubite to their god in the sky.

Based on another explanation I came across in the link : The Drop : Explained & Reviewed, look like they 2 were loan sharks. Based on what Bob explains in end.. he killed Ritchie for the sake of an old debt. This debt made them work for the mob as bartenders. Before that they were independent and had their own say in things. Over time they are forced ...

I think Ben wanted Locke to not enter the numbers so that the hatch would eventually explode rendering the island incapable of communication. Ben did not want anyone else leaving the island. However if Ben did not enter the numbers at that time that he did, then he would lose trust he was trying to build or he would have gotten hurt in the explosion.

Per my answer here on Scifi:SE, According to the Wachowskis, Neo interrupts Cypher writing a script (some kind of automated operator) that will enable him to enter and leave the Matrix without a human operator present. WachowskiBros: Cypher, at the beginning of this scene, is setting up an automated system to allow him to go meet with Agent Smith. As ...

After the head exploding scene Valentine stated that he's not that stupid to implant an explosive version of the implant into himself. They both still needed the implant to be immune to the effects of the signal. We can assume he did the same thing for his right-hand assistant Gazelle.

Don Corleone traded the rights to deal drugs (with controls) in New York for the right of Michael's safe return. An important part of the scene is when Nazorine -- a kind of neutral Don -- speaks-up regarding the dealing of drugs. "My people can't refuse." This shows which way the wind is blowing -- towards drug dealing. Don Coreleone can reluctantly live ...

Backstory The games are inherently unfair. Sometimes players attempt an action the gamekeeper doesn't allow - such as hiding. The gamekeeper then employs field elements to cause the player to abandon their plan and come back into play. This happens several times during the first game. Further, the gamekeeper is responsible for keeping the games ...

It's Uday. It's Uday in the book. The film is based on The Devil's Double by Latif Yahia, the same Latif who (allegedly) was Uday's double. In the book, Uday attempts to take his own life with an overdose of sleeping pills and alcohol out of guilt over murdering Kamel Hannah. The film reenacts the scene from the book almost faithfully, which includes ...

There is a paradox between Dr. Mann's past (what we hear from Brand and others) and what we see from him in the current time. When Cooper and others wake Dr. Mann, his first reaction is to cry. He changed a lot and his beliefs changed also. Rather than saving humans and such great goals, he just wants to go back to earth. He lost his hope totally and years ...

The short answer is that he's not a highly trained astronaut, he's a ground-based theoretical physicist who volunteered to lead this last-ditch mission. His knowledge of space flight is limited to a single mission and his training was done on the cheap by flight controllers who themselves haven't ever been into space. It's clear that he doesn't recognise ...

The package contained the full truth about himself, being undercover and what not. To contact digman, showing the whole entire truth about Collin, everything. So she would know everything. It's very simple to figure what's in the envelope. Like he says when she is walking into her office "don't open this unless something happens or I tell you too" so she ...

The gun was given to James Cole so that the airport guards would shoot him. As a child, James saw himself die, so that element of the past (which was unchangeable) HAD to take place. However, I do wonder why the gun was an antique....

This is discussed (at reasonable length) in the film's novelisation. In short, it's not made clear why he's averse to medical help being brought, but Murph herself has a few theories; That it would be an admission of personal failure, that he'd have to admit that the Earth was doomed, that he's become indoctrinated by the anti-science forces seen at the ...

Fun fact: This episode was an homage to True Detective, strange as it may sound. Background: In early 2014, HBO released the first season of True Detective, which quickly earned rave reviews and plenty of fanfare. One of the more impressive feats by that first season's director, Cary Fukunaga, was an uninterrupted, action-filled 6-minute-long tracking shot ...

It is nothing but just a phrase used by him to express his Mood! like we use to say some thing while lifting heavy weights, or while doing some serious work just to elevate the mood. it doesn't have any particular meaning!

Think of the Ring like an addiction- Frodo is just starting out with it at this point, so it hasn't affected him too much yet even though he can feel it is pretty powerful. Bilbo has had it for at least 50 years now, and he's quite, quite attached to it. It's very hard for him to give it up cold turkey, and he wants to jump back on the bandwagon. Gollum is ...

When its said" Micheal Corleone says hello" Its said as a taunt. As to say we know everything between you and micheal. Not knowing the assassination attempt would fail.

I was thinking that he killed his wife well before the accident, but he cannot remember and her spirit appears after the accident very angry and want to make he suffer too for revenge. That's why she tries to confuse him at different times, but she disappeared when he killed her spirit in his imagination to survive. And the dog that guides and protects him ...

For the answer, remember the fact that Walter's brain works much in analytical fashion. He deduces, assumes or implies even the tiniest possibilities for any given situation. It was obvious that Lionel and Marco Salamanca were cousins of Tuco, this part must have been told (or at the best heard while stories were being passed around between colleagues and ...

Neo's goal has never been altered, the thing is you are misleading persons in the matrix which are computer programs with real humans. People who must be saved from the matrix are only those who are connected to it, so rescuing Zion from the bots will help the human to get rid of robots revolution, and not beeing keeped in the human farms robots are using. ...

The dog was indeed alive in the later scenes (as the novelisation below shows). Although it's pure speculation, I think we can be reasonably certain that the alien gave the dog a swift kick and the dog ran off scared. Emmett ran forward to meet Jake and the riders, seeing only the black dog keeping pace with them— the friend he'd thought he'd lost ...

When I was growing up, the children in my town used to find presents outside their houses on Christmas day (I later found that the head of the local Rotary Association had been leaving them). Now, leaving aside the question of why they did this, I'm pleased to report that because my parents aren't mental, at no point did they imagine that Santa actually ...

Buffalo Bill had not necessarily been in Fredrica Bimmel's house. Fredrica worked for Buffalo Bill's mother, who ran a tailoring business out of her home. Buffalo Bill would see her every day that she came to work for his mother. I assume that it was her body that Starling found in the bath tub in the basement. I would also assume that he learned how to sew ...

This was discussed in a Brightlightsfilm inteview with the Director/Writer Paul Thomas Anderson: Of all things, why frogs? It truly came from a slightly gimmicky and exciting place. I’d read about rains of frogs in the works of Charles Fort, who was a turn-of-the-century writer who wrote mainly about odd phenomena. Michael Penn was the one who ...

I don't think this is a deliberate error. A quick google suggests that a considerable number of people (including those with a deep knowledge of the local area and history of the region) refer to China as the "Democratic Republic of China" or "People's Democratic Republic of China". Given that she makes it abundantly clear that she works at the Chinese ...

Okay so Ive been pondering about the ending and I think I figured it out. So in the movie when Jack gives Miss Acacia his key they sang a little song and at the end he says lets make time stand still as he leans in to kiss her. So in the end when they kissed time froze because of the wonderfulness from the kiss and he started climbing because when he kissed ...

As for you merchants you crossed ocean and mountain the great Takla Makan Desert. One not many men survive. Describe for me my desert, hmm?

It wasn't explained in the film, nor is it explained in the source novel (except to say that it's not explained) CORALINE’S PARENTS NEVER SEEMED to remember anything about their time in the snow globe. At least, they never said anything about it, and Coraline never mentioned it to them. Sometimes she wondered whether they had ever noticed that ...

Here is a simpler explanation for a simple question. The moment Sherlock saw the gun he got to know it was fake, since he's a deduction pro. He then remarks, "you don't take people's lives at gun point", simply because you cannot kill a person with a fake gun. Also, he was curious to know about the cabbie's plan of action(Pills in the Bottles). Had ...

The survivors had an immunity to the virus. Also in the end the woman that said "Jones, I'm in insurance," is one of the scientists. I think she means, sarcastically, I'm here to ensure the future. They needed the virus to find a cure, not to stop the epidemic. She is probably there to grab a vile of the virus and take it to the future.

I think the question, "What happened to Thomas Granger?" is a symptom of some of the weaknesses in the story. Given that time travel is 100% theoretical, it's pointless to deconstruct this movie as if researching historical events - if things don't add up, it's because of poor writing, not because so many of us who have watched the movie multiple times are ...

It's what napoleon wilson says: A good alternative to the obvious "because when he finds out, he didn't know 20 years later somebody would come up with a backstory where he's not supposed to know he has children". When George Lucas made the first Star Wars movie he didn't even intended that Darth Vader was Luke and Leia's father. He came up with that later ...

As already stated on a comment in the question, this is very much speculation, since there is no canonic evidence to base give a pinpointed answer. However, with that being said, we are able to use logic and deduction to get to an answer. Which will still be subjective to who's reading it. But it's as close as I think we'll be able to get with this ...

I think the people get evacuated some time between when the "birds" attack and when the kids return to the city. If you remember it was still day when the aviary was broken and the "birds" attacked. Owen and the other security members manage to tranquillize them and then the kids insisted that they stay with Owen. When the hunt for Indominus started it ...

They are called Cheval de frise The cheval de frise (plural: chevaux de frise) was a medieval defensive anti-cavalry measure consisting of a portable frame (sometimes just a simple log) covered with many projecting long iron or wooden spikes or spears. While you're correct that in the film they don't stop any of the attacking Greeks, embedded stakes ...

In Indian languages this is just a kind of exclamation. And it is very common in Tamil movies to give the lead characters some kind of phrase, you will find out more examples if you watch more Hindi or Tamil movies. "dan.. dan.. danaka" is an expression that resembles the beating of drum, which usually implies to do something with enthusiasm or alike, the ...

In the original Ramayana, Ravana is said to have 10 heads. 10 heads mean 10 brains, and that further means the possibility of having 10 different thoughts simultaneously. In the movie, the character Veera is portrayed like Ravana, which is also the movie's name. Quite often when he thinks about something or tries to arrive at a decision, his 10 brains start ...
