In the book, the elves from Lothlorien were not involved in this battle. A few days after the battle of Helm's Deep, orcs from Dol Guldur swarmed into the forest of Lothlorien in a full-scale assault. They were repulsed by the power of the elves and Galadriel’s ring. I assume that in the movie, elves who survived the battle of Helm's Deep, immediately ...

I think we can safely assume that all the Elves died during the fight. They took the full brunt of the Urak-hai army on the ground after the wall was destroyed. Let's not forget, that their commander (the only Elf who could have issued a retreat) was Haldir - and he died. The Elves are fiercely well trained and proud fighters, it is no surprise at all ...

The Elves at Helm's Deep were a departure from the book version and were added for some reason by Peter Jackson and his team. Because of this, they would need to play a bigger part in an already pretty expansive story or they would have to be quietly dropped from the plot. Perhaps they filmed a few scenes either about them getting wiped out or going home, ...

If my interpretation is correct, then what's happening in this scene requires you to have been paying really good attention to the earlier scenes, soon after the four got their powers. Once of the lines of dialogue tells us that the Army invented the suits the team uses because, without the suits, they cannot control their own powers. In other words, Johnny ...

The key scene is when Walter sits down at the restaurant, looks in the window (it's dark outside) and sees the reflection of him, and Gus. Both have short (or no) hair, and are wearing glasses, and Walt realizes that Gus fits the description.

The movie lacks any explicit showing of siring, the creation of a vampire. All we see is biting. The vamps at the beginning were bit on the plane before it crashed, and the Second Bride, the Reporter Solina afterwards. Lucy the Third Bride, is also shown just being bit. Solina makes a vague reference to being chosen (as a lover) while she is in an ...

Because he was undercover. If he wasn't racist they'd probably question why he was okay with slaves being beaten to death by eachother too

Here's some relevant dialog from S02E11: Walt: “We’re not going to deal with another high-level distributor. We’ve been down that road.” “What? Some tattooed speed freak? No. What you two need is an honest-to-God businessman – somebody who treats your product like the high-margin commodity it is. Somebody who ships out of town, deals only in ...

Jesse is reborn. Walt face his life to let Jesse go and intentionally take the blame. I'm sure Walt didn't go in there thinking he would survive (tying up all loose ends before hand and what not). Besides, the way the show is made, very linear and cut and dry (not in a bad way), if Jesse went to jail, the would've made that very clear.

The writers left if open ended with a nod to the audience that he got away free. 'Breaking Bad': Creator Vince Gilligan explains series finale: On the decision to spare Jesse and allow him to escape “We found over the years that the way we can please the majority of the audience most of the time is to tune out as much extraneous factors as possible ...

Jesse knew that by looking at how comfortable Walter was in his position. He knew Walter well enough to understand what could signify this comfort, the fact that Mike is no longer a threat.

Jesse knew that if he shoots Walter, he will execute yet another bloody favor Walter prepared for him, meaning once again Jesse's abeyance admitting that Walter is still in control.

I believe there is a combination of things that lead to Hank's and Gomez's deaths: Hank was overwhelmed with his success in finally hand-cuffing Heisenberg, which has lead him to getting caught off-guard. Neither Hank nor Gomez could expect any sort of backup from Walter's side. They got caught up in the open (at least Gomez), so making any sort of ...

I took that it existed along the entire line of the temporal loop, which is why it was able to learn tactics, reset and still keep the memories. If so then killing it anywhere along the loop kills it across the entire thing, so when Criuse returns to his start point it's dead

In my opinion, Saul made an assumption and ran with it. If he was wrong (Hank is not involved), he can just apologize for the mistake. But by being right (which he assumes he is - the odds are good given he's there for a Heisenberg-related drug bust and sees DEA), he comes across as all-knowing (or at least way ahead than they expect), which makes him ...

It's actually a horrifying ending. The ending is supposed to be completely saccharine. I watched this with my Dad who was a retired LCDC counselor and he explained it. By complete Deus Ex Machina Nick Cage's character gets his life back together, he has a chance to go clean, have a family and a promotion and straighten up. And he does, but he also doesn't. ...

In the book, this fight between Ser Loras and the Mountain was semifinal, and in the other semifinal the Hound has already defeated Jamie Lannister. The Hound is supposed to face Ser Loras in the final tilt, but Loras, in gratitude to the Hound for saving his life, yields the match. The screenwriters of the show have ignored a lot of details from the book, ...

I largely agree with the comment - the point is that Bergman is an amazingly gifted reporter. He puts a major FBI operation together from some pickup truck with high-power antennas and 2 agents claiming to be geologists with perfectly-manicured nails. This is basically consistent with the kind of stuff he pulls in the rest of the film. That said, the role ...

The restrictions on killing are only for "made" men, i.e. recognized core members of a mob family. That's why the murder of Billy Batts was such a big deal. Batts was a made man, and untouchable unless you get permission from the higher ups, and why the Goodfellas were so happy at the prospect of Tommy getting made. None of Jimmy Conway's men had that ...

It's simple. If they would dig up the first time machine it had been siting in the mine for 6 months, when doc got there in 1885. when Marty got there in 1885, the replacement parts to fix it for 1955 would not be available until 1985

For a woman in that time and place to have a child out of wedlock was tantamount to be exiled from the community. Mother and Father feeling family was shammed,the child being sent to an orphanage and the mother shunned or likely committed to some kind of work house or an institution where common options. Suicide seems the outcome for this question. When you ...

Jimmy was in charge of his own crew on that heist. Hell, the driver (Parnell Edwards) was black. When's the last time you heard of a black guy in the mob? Jimmy had them all whacked when he feared they were going to start implicating him.

This might be the biggest cause of Elliot's return to F society, according to Wikipedia: F Society's missions is to cancel all debts by taking down one of the largest corporations in the world, E Corp (known as "Evil Corp" by Elliot), which also happens to be All safe's biggest client.

Stannis had only 4,000 men but the point is that he was able to capture Mance off guard. Mance is also averse to fighting battles that would lead to an inordinate number of deaths of free folk. So he wouldn't order a pyrrhic attack while surrounded by four thousand trained cavalrymen.

As others have stated, Sam Gold is ego personified; Avi states this in the film. The "Sam Gold" that the gangsters refer to is a ghost story created by Zack and Avi, a fiction to intimidate and threaten the gangsters' egos. Zack & Avi hired Lily Walker so that they could interface with the criminal underworld (& manipulate Macha) while remaining ...

Watch closely. At the end, the dog looks to the right alertly, then Nadia glances in the same direction, and then she makes the excuse to get her coat and retreats. Too soon after, we hear footsteps and the dog whining. In my opinion, Bob was either killed or arrested by the detective. Similarly, earlier in the movie Nadia also walks away from Bob while ...

It is called Ululation, and as explained in the very thorough wiki page, many peoples around the world have used it in celebration and sorrow. In fact, that specific scene in Lawrence of Arabia was showing that the women of the Arab forces were both celebrating their men going off to war, and expressing their sorrow that some won't return.

Rollerball was a team sport. It emphasized team over individuals. Jonathan's fame made him an individual, rising above the team. The central concept behind the movie was to be an individual, not a sheep. That is, to make a name for yourself and rise above the herd. It's sort of a Capitalist view, but that was what the author was trying to convey. From ...

Neo's machine made purpose is as a controlled failure check valve for "errors" that add up in the Matrix. Of course these errors are humans who reject the matrix. The machines use the Neo to control how the system works and minimize the number of malfunctioning battery crops (pod humans). Of course, this results in the unpredictable because Neo is mostly ...

Walt took the second job to add another source of income for his family. Do not forget that Skyler was pregnant at that time, and that meant Walt's family was going to expand. Obviously, Walt did not make much, through his primary job of a High school teacher. So with a wife, disabled son and an upcoming baby, and Walt being the sole bread winner, his choice ...

Shooting to maim is illegal. So is shooting anyone that is not currently endangering anyone else. Authorization to use deadly force without prejudice was unlikely: he's a US marshal; not a bounty hunter.

Hector killed Max on Don Eladio's (non vocal) orders, because he felt insulted. Gus and Max, the Don felt, had manipulated him, through his minons, into having the meeting. By supposedly selling drugs, in his territory, to his men. While Gus and Max may really have gave it away instead of selling it, it doesn't matter to someone like the Don. And by going ...

Historically (for humans and equines as well as other species I'm sure) checking teeth is a very easy way to gather information about the health of someone. If they're not eating properly, or dehydrated, or diseased, likely their teeth and gums will show. In some post-apocalyptic type movies, cannibals would sharpen their teeth, so checking that they aren't ...

The last mention of Edmure was in Season 3 episode 10 "Mhysa". Look at us now, Tully. You're dead, your daughter's dead, your grandson's dead, your son spent his wedding night in a dungeon and I'm Lord of Riverrun. -Walder Frey There has been no further mention of him, or Blackfish, or the Tullys at all in following seasons of the show, which have ...

How does he know Quill is there? He doesn't. That's why he starts barking questions about who are you/how did you know about this place. More importantly, how does Korath even know about the Infinity stone? He doesn't know about the Stone inside, just that he is supposed to retrieve it. If he does know about it and he also knows it is laying ...

When Ramsay captures Theon , he converts him into Reek for following reasons:- By keeping Theon alive, he has a hostage from the Greyjoy family, who are always a threat for the 'Warden of North'. He finds a loyal friend and servant by brainwashing him. Now, Theon had some personal motivation but Reek has none. He is completely faithful to Ramsay. He can ...

Agree with aidenO. He sustained a GSW to chest. In movie that means he either blows up, immediately dies without firing weapon or in this case is dead by now. There is no suggestion anywhere in the movie that Cobb can sense what is in limbo

You're right to bring up the other scene where we see he's a "bad ass shot", as we see he doesn't hesitate to shoot to hurt/kill. Why not with Kimble? In fact why the hostage scene (or even the other escaped convinct character!) in the first place? It doesn't add anything to the story does it? Unless... By the time the city jail scene comes along, there is ...

First of all, who were these five people Dent is said to have killed? We see him shoot Wurtz (he doesn't kill Ramirez) and Maroni's driver. At the end of Dark Knight only Gordon and Batman know what Dent has done, so technically they could say anything and still keep Dent's reputation clean. Also, it's not like Dent is a functioning district attorney, ...

I would imagine that it was not because they really did not care about skin colour but evil men only in it for the business/money. You can see that the house (expletive) was a front by Stephen and behind closed doors he was calculating and full of menace. He was as much a leader of the gang as the rest

In The Climb (6th episode of season 3): Tyrion: Trying to have me killed is an odd way of saying thank you. There are two people in King’s Landing who can give an order to a Kingsguard. Did you or did you not order Ser Mandon to kill me during the Battle of the Blackwater? Cersei remains silent. Tyrion: The impulse I understand. He hates me ...

It seems to me that the "I've Done It"/Wife scene is a manifestation of one of the biggest themes of this movie. So big, that Nolan even has the protagonist spell it out for us himself. Remember the scene where Lenny goes on a brief diatribe about how unreliable memory is? He says he only trusts facts, and cites the fallibility of eye-witness testimony ...

Other answers have already explianed why Ser Allisor got support with Night's Watch in killing Jon Snow. I will like to try to cover more of what the OP has asked, why he was killed at night instead of not allowing to enter. Some of the Night's Watch's brothers are still loyal to Jon, so there was a chance that they rebel against Allisor at that time. Or ...

Based on the play, I always assumed he had gotten sick (pneumonia?) saving Marius by wading in the sewers. In the book, after he marries Cosette, Marius is a real jerk to him and forces him to only meet with Cosette in a basement where he catches a chill and dies from it. Either way, Marius is a jerk and responsible for the death of the coolest French guy ...

Well we are all assuming that Caleb was a good person because Ava didn't say he was lying. But he might have been "lying" but Ava decided not say anything and to use that to manipulate him into thinking he was a good person and he should help free her. Plus he knows Ava murdered Nathan and would not be okay with that and there would be a good change he would ...

I believe in a sort of compromise between the previous responses. In the last couple scenes Alex appears with a seemingly well respected, or at least important, member of society. He makes a deal with this man (Fred) which symbolizes his deal with the government and therefore society. Fred arranges for Beethoven's Ninth Symphony to be played, as a treat for ...

Hanna was probably guilty but you would have to question her overall intelligence. In the film she had no understanding of right or wrong. First of all having an affair with a kid.she saw nothing wrong with this and also in court she saw nothing wrong with condemning 300 people to death. I think she was a pawn and was took advantage of due to her lack of ...

They get stung and then they are shoved out to the maze to die, without being able to tell anyone else exactely what happened (as they go a little crazy). So when they say that no-one has seen a griever and lived, that is 100% true. There is no evidence to suggest any of the runners have seen one (prior to Thomas) while out on their runs.
