I think the diary entry was written by both the twins at different times because when Angier gets jealous looking at Borden's perfect family life, he says that he found out later in the diary that Borden loved it and hated it the next moment. Since the twins were living a half of both lives, it makes sense that both of them wrote the diary whenever they were ...

i think, the victims were killed by the corresponding deadly sin. the fat guy died by eating, the whore by sex, the junkie by lying in bed. in the last scene, Tracy died by Doe's jealousy hence "envy" then Doe died by Mills' hatred hence "wrath"

I watched Scenic Route last night just to answer this question. It appears that the ending is purposefully ambiguous. I think that enough data was given for someone to make a call in either direction. Let's go over what I came up with They lived They both heard the phone ring. Normally one person will hallucinate and trigger another person to also ...

What format would the data be in? At this point, Lucy has immense knowledge of the universe, more than mankind has ever attained. The fact that the sum of this knowledge can be stored in a device so small in size implies that the data storage format she uses is much more efficient than anything we are capable of today. This idea is also suggested by the ...

In the causal trail, if the first set of Abe and Aaron don't create the time machine, that should ideally reset the timeline right to the beginning. There would never be a successful time machine created. Abe and Aaron would give up and move on to other projects. None of the skewed timelines would exist and none of the other Abes and Aarons would exist. ...

TL/DR: The raspy voice Cole hears without seeing its speaker is an audio hallucination akin to a voice heard by a schizophrenia sufferer. Louie, the toothless time traveler, is a real person -- and after meeting Louie, Cole -- in a state of extreme mental fatigue -- retroactively associates the raspy voice with Louie. FULL ANSWER: The raspy voice Cole hears ...

First of all, I'm pretty sure that's exactly what is implied, that his aunt molested him. That is implied in the way Charlie gets the flashback of her rubbing his leg when Sam does the same to him. The situation is the same as it is motivated by the same feelings and not just out of mere friendship. This is only a slight hint, so it may be a bit confusing up ...

Andrew Martin gives 3 excellent interpretations of the ending in his response to a question about the telekinesis in the movie. His most satisfying explanation of the ending (both to him and to me) is this one: I can't take credit for this answer, but I wanted people who find this question to see it.

Teddy helps him kill the actual "2nd man" and he does in fact get his "I did it" tattoo before he od'd his wife on insulin (if this even happened since we know Teddy is not adverse to lying to Lenny). Maybe the tattoo is there when Natalie points to it. He's telling her he's going to kill the guy and she's saying "what about this?" but when he says maybe I'm ...

What I think happened was Hans saw the same board moments before. When McClain asks for his name, Hans thinks for a moment and thinks of one of the names on the board he just saw. Luckily John glanced at the same board too and probably thought, what are the chances, that out of the hundreds if not thousands of people who work in the building, that he ...

There are a couple of reasons why they might choose to not to wear gloves when on a mission: They would look more suspicious if caught (holding a screwdriver would look odd, but not quite as suspicious) If it's not winter (which it generally isn't in the show), having gloves in you possession while going to your mission draws attention Gloves would smudge ...

As others have pointed out in the thread, the fact that she dances vigorously after injuring herself indicates that the wound couldn't have been severe. Therefore, I think the conclusion's fade to white merely highlights the fact that Nina lost her mind (Portman's simplistic theory notwithstanding). True, such a fade typically implies the tragic death of a ...

IF the train were to stop moving, then the movement forward could take place outside the train. ie, people could exit in the back walk to the front of the train, and try to revolt by breaking in. (even if they could only survive outside for a few minutes) By keeping the train moving, the only way forward is the single passageway within the train, making ...

It was Henri who did that, and he did it because he wanted to die. Patrick d'Assumcao played a character named Henri, not Eric. He was depressed and was suicidal. He purposely lured the killer into the woods because he wanted the killer to kill him. Henri tells Franck that it's better this way, or something to that effect.

I just watched the movie. I'm pretty sure what you are seeing is two different scopes - one from the insurgent (looking at the wall) and on from Kyle's rifle. The view changes back and forth between them, showing that the insurgent Mustafa has targeted another US soldier and is about to fire, then alternately showing Kyle's rifle aimed at Mustafa. Mustafa's ...

The following scenes are key to answering this question (in chronological order): the deposition formalizing the accusations the scene at the 6th floor's cross-coat where both fronts shoot at each other the scene where they are opening the will the trial of Mr.Gustave/the whole inheritance Now I find all this evidence to be indicative and not absolute, ...

How could the human race have gone back in time to save itself from circumstances that would have caused us to go extinct without our own help (the convenient wormhole)? The reason this is so difficult to answer is that you've included the words "back in time". There is no linear time in this movie. There is no past, and no future. There are ...

There's no proof of this, but at a specific point in the film the characters realize that Dr. Brand (senior) solved the gravitational equations long before he sent anyone through. The first explorers knew that they were not only on a one-way trip, but that they wouldn't be sending comprehensive data back. At most a simple ping indicating that they still ...

Standard Tarrantino fare. I don't feel like she's talking about being pregnant, as some women don't even get that big and even if they do it's only for a short period of time. I'd lean more towards it being yet another "I'm cool because I'm so random" chat between characters in a Tarrantino movie.

After re-watching this, this scene was definitely artistic license. The reason I say this is because there are only 2 ways to achieve this: 1) Kyle would have to move the entire rifle, which is impossible because the hole in the wall that he was looking through would have blocked his view, or 2) Kyle would have had to pivot the rifle on the legs of his ...

I definitely got that impression as well and expected to see an explanation at some point before the movie was over, but as you already know, it's never really explained. I do know that Du Pont was married to a woman for a time, if that means anything: At the age of 45, on September 3, 1983, he married 29-year-old Gale Wenk, an occupational therapist. ...

The film is based on a novella by Dostoyevsky, and at the end of the Dostoyevsky story, the main character suffers a mental break and is put in an asylum. It doesn't make any sense in the context of the film for the colonel to be in the ambulance with Simon, so in all likelihood the colonel's sudden appearance is meant as a reference to the original story, ...

If this is what I think you're referring to, he's talking about the space programs being decommissioned... By saying the Delhi mission control "went down", he's stating that because of the global push for technology and agriculture that will help humanity survive, the space programs were considered too costly and unnecessary: and were shut down.

TL,DR: There was an encoded message sent from a spy in Bletchley Park to the Russians. Matthew 7:7 was used as the encrypting code. The only way to decrypt this message is to know that the key used to create the cipher was Matt 7:7. Which was information that was related to Turing in the bar by Hugh. When Turing was back in the hut he saw Allens Bible was ...

The teddy bear symbolized his children (children's teddy bear). The Albanians would harm his family (wife and kids) if he did not give up the information.

The movie did not explain what he was in the past, but based on his skill, we can easily assume a spy of some type. His death was explained when he was talking with his friend (right before the lady returned in the helicopter). His death was faked so he could escape that life and basically retire. If you recall the scene where the russian bad guy is ...

Louis is a troubled vampire whose humanity didn't die when his body went through its "mortal death". He wanted to tell his life story, which the interview is. Had he wanted blood, he would have gotten it in a manner much easier than luring the interviewer for the whole night. These are his comments from the book, right after the boy (the interviewer) asks ...

You've heard that no one liked Thompson neither did Morris, so Stephen laid out every ''dirty'' information on Morris, and so as Thompson gave that speech at the end that he supports Morris bla-bla, Stephen immediately killed two "dirty" birds by one stone.

There’s a scene at the beginning of episode 9 where John directly asks Dennis Boyd about whether he was stealing documents for Sandy Bachman, and says: John: I don't know, Dennis. Like I said, Sandy was your friend. Maybe he convinced you it was for the war effort. Dennis: It wasn't me, John. I think John’s statement is the closest the show comes to ...

I think those scenes were deleted so that the idea of them switching out the pills wouldn't be as far fetched. Without those deleted scenes, those actions of Cross that you found confusing could have been related to Cross alone having moments of paranoia, or possibly being overly-careful about certain situations. Sometimes movies evolve, and certain scenes ...

No, he wasn't. Now first of all, I wholeheartedly agree with Paulster2's refutation of the survival chance argument as well as his explanation of Dr. Mann's behaviour in a human sense and the missing technological possibility to even make such a human-robot hybrid, let alone any hint for that. But I think there's even more here. First of all as the ...

I think your premise is off base from the get go, which invalidates the rest of the question: ... [Mann] says something along the lines of “I haven’t had such good odds in years” proceeds to headbutt Cooper cracking Cooper’s visor. Is this evidence that Mann was in fact a robot? Surely no human would be able to process the implications of a 50-50 life or ...

He shouldn't have known given the available data. He guessed and it turned out to be right. But he acted as if he knew the truth, which is a logical flaw. He should have acted like he is guessing. Given that he was guessing, it looked like it was a frivolent wager to prove that the Tapasvi is a shallow Sadhu. Had the guess gone wrong, both Tapasvi and ...

Bachman's intel was always spot on. This implies that Bachman traded state's secrets or other information, stolen by Boyd from his wife, in exchange for useful intel.

I don't believe that there was any mention in the books that destroying the Ring would destroy Sauron and no mention at the Council of Elrond. The goal was to prevent Sauron from obtaining the One Ring, which he would use to conquer middle-earth. In The Fellowship of the Ring, chapter 2 - The Shadow of the Past, Gandalf tells Frodo that the only way to ...

The one ring was the only thing that kept him alive after he lost his physical body in the first great battle at mt. doom. Since the Istari knew Sauron was only banished, not dead, but Elrond didn't kill Isildur for walking away with the ring, they knew that his spirit could be vanquished destroying the one ring.

Has anyone considered that the whole movie takes place after he died, since he clearly saw himself jumping at the beginning.

There are several religious ...

This seems more like a question that belongs on History SE, but I'll throw my $.02 in here... TLDR: As early as 1933 but certainly by Nov. 24, 1942.
