One thought: The machines wanted to kill 2 birds with one stone. They wanted to solve the energy-source problem AND the human problem. Because if they fixed the skies, but didn't enslave the humans, then the humans would just go and do something else to muck things up for the machines. Plus, the machines might have "done the math" and found that humans are a ...

It's the principle of the thing. If he lends the lamp to Jasmine to give her three wishes, what's to stop him from then lending it to the Sultan, or to Apu, or to whomever else. He still has that third wish in reserve, so technically he can free the Genie at any time, so he hasn't violated the letter of his promise, but it certainly violates the spirit. ...

We simply don't know. The trunk or the money don't appear in any of the (chronologically) later scenes. They only play an indirect role as Teddy's motivation to get the car from Leonard. There are only theories about the money's whereabouts. From imdb: What happened to the money in the trunk of the Jaguar? This question is never explicitly answered ...

Ideally totems are not to be shared, sharing totems can cause one person giving the wrong impression of reality to the other in a dream. Cobb takes Mal's totem because she is no longer alive. Here is an illustrated version of the dream levels and kicks, helps explaining how they use the kicks to get out of a dream level: Inception Illustrated And Explained ...

I'd like to see the movie having - reality and dreams. There are two major dream sequences, the first one which has a 2 dream sequence where they are trying to extract information from Saito. The second one is the rest of the movie - the multi dream sequence where they are trying to incept the idea into Fisher's mind. The second dream starts after the scene ...

Found a spot-on answer at the following link: Why Murph still can read the Morse Coded wrist watch when she has brought the watch back to her office in NASA, which is out of her room? Save you the trouble, here is the answer: It seems to be a function of the tesseract. From Ch. 30 of The Science of Interstellar: By the time Cooper has received the ...

Actually its possible to fit it into the timeline of the movie His wife survives the initial accident but he gets separated from her. He goes on a quest to find the supposed killer and gets the tattoos we see throughout the movie He kills the person and gets the I've done it tattoo. His wife finds him later and they live together again as seen briefly. He ...

The film portrays “The Gimp” as being the willing S&M partner of Zed and Maynard, the pawn shop owner and his security guard friend. While he is shown being “held” in a box-like structure in the basement of the pawn shop, it’s clear from his actions that this is a willing sexual act and that he is not being held captive. Butch reinforces this portion of ...

The “final” scenes from Pulp Fiction relate the story of Butch and Marsellus and the events in the pawn shop. This is demonstrated by Julius and Vincent arriving at the bar with the briefcase wearing the casual clothing that they changed into at Jimmy’s house at the begin of Butch’s tale. The events in the restaurant with Honey Bunny (the holdup) actually ...

To add to the other answers, Talia herself might have taken the decision to put Batman in the pit. She was the only one to ever rise from that pit of hell and that too as a child (with much less wing span and energy). She was a legend of that pit. Only the prison doctor and Bane were actual remaining witnesses to that climb. She would expect nobody to ...

No, but by her connections she would probably question herself why Oliver always leaves and the Arrow appears, etc. I don't think there is any episode showing that she definitely knows she is the Arrow.

It is quite unlikely that a cure for the blight was found, since as you said yourself, they could have just stayed on earth and gradually recultivated it in this case. So the 1st option stays out of consideration. It is, however, likely that you could cultivate plants in a closed ecosystem once you have seeds separated from the blight, afterall they somehow ...

Talia was no ordinary child. A child born in hell, forged by suffering, hardened by pain. Not a man from privilege. After his defeat, Bane asks Batman: I broke you. How have you come back? I think this makes it quite clear that Bane was sure that Bruce would not be able to escape.

It's hard to judge if he is good or bad. You can probably say he is not good at his job because he had to kill so many people to save people. If he is really good at his job then he would not need to do that. Is he actually saved people or killed the innocents? Yes he saved people by his bombings, because his bombings supposedly killed potential ...

This film was so wonderfully exquisite in its simplicity. I was left to consider the true feelings of a mother and her child. Many mothers I have known have confessed a compulsion to rid themselves of their child. That's how I view the ending

While I don't have a definitive answer, this is a film with religious themes. Hallmark produced a study guide for the film, tying scripture to the plot and identifying the themes of grief, forgiveness, and service. There is an underlying belief in a benevolent God, and that does not seem compatible with the idea that an angelic force like Mrs. Miracle could ...

It was revealed in The Writing On The Wall (S02E07) that Garret, Coulson and a number of other former agents were drawing segments of a map. The segments fit together in a three dimensional space, which no one had noticed until now. Once put together, it appeared to be a map of a lost city or large temple of some sort. During the events of The ...

Trip, Fitz, and Simmons were not affected because they didn't trip the zombification/security system like Mack did. The protective suits Trip, Fitz and Simmons wore down into the temple seemed to have nothing to do with it. Mack was actually fine at the bottom of the temple originally. Then he decided to touch the patterns on the ground. This ...

This will not be what you want to hear, but there does not seem to be a definite answer, only theories. From Lostpedia (emphasis mine): Soon after Desmond crashed on the island, Penny began searching for him. At some point, she managed to learn about the island, but the extent of her knowledge, and where it came from, is unknown. ("The Constant") Then ...

They only had a brief window of time in which they had to operate, the last light of Durin's day. When the sun set, they thought their only opportunity was gone. Bilbo wasn't limited in thinking about the small window of time like the others, so he kept at it, and eventually realized the last light of Durin's day was the moonlight.

She was lying. To quote from the Sin City wiki, which describes Ava: An ex-lover of Dwight McCarthy, she manipulates men with her good looks and an innocent facade for her own personal gain or amusement. An expert liar, she is considered a goddess by Manute, her towering manservant, and a "manipulative bitch" by Dwight. She represents the ...

Cooper's age was between 35 and 44 when he left earth. As Murph's age was at least 35 by the time Cooper returned from planet Miller (10+2 years to Saturn +23 years on Miller), Cooper had to be older than 35 in order for Murph to be at her dad's age when leaving earth. Further, Cooper was 124 upon returning, 120 upon entering the black hole, 69 (120-51) ...

Everyone already has the virus. If they are bitten by a zombie then it kills them and makes them a zombie. If they die naturally and do not receive a bullet or blow to the head, they will "rise" as a zombie. If bitten, they will turn to a zombie unless the sustain a head blow; then they will become a corpse. Shane, just like everyone else, has the virus in ...

Personally I think the film is deliberately made to be ambiguous at many points: some scenes are presented as reality at first then one is led to discover it's part of Simon's imagination guided by Elizabeth. At times Elizabeth seems to be interested in Franck and at others to be manipulating him. Sometimes the scene focuses on Franck in a way that could be ...

Elizabeth didn't get cursed because she didn't take the coin from its original chest, the coin got passed on to Will Turner and then Elizabeth, Bill Turner was the one that took that same coin from the chest and he got cursed. Quote from conversation between Barbossa and Elizabeth about the curse: "...So the heathen gods placed upon the gold...a ...

For the same reason that young Will Turner wasn't cursed after wearing the medallion. After young Will is rescued in the beginning of the first movie, young Elizabeth finds the medallion on young Will, and not wanting him arrested and hung as a pirate, takes it and begins wearing it herself. Neither of them were cursed by that act. It wasn't the simple act ...

My reading of the situation is that the curse only affects someone if they take it from the chest.

From the PotC wikia: At some point in time, Davy Jones would strike a bargain with Jack Sparrow to resurrect his beloved vessel the Wicked Wench, which he would rename as the Black Pearl, in return for a hundred years of servitude aboard the Dutchman.

Here is a solution to the story ... The humanity both survives and wipes out without any need of parallell universes or syclic timeloops. HOW? There are not two ways of doing things. No non-determinism (splits into two ways at the same time) or no backtrackings (like a squirrell running branches of a tree of time back and forth). Done is done. Time is ...

In Felina, though not referenced in the WikiPedia article - though explained here, Walter meets up with Badger and Skinny Pete after insisting that Elliot and Gretchen deliver the money to Walt Jr (and discussing terms).

The final episodes of Breaking Bad are all about Walt going on a journey of redemption. The collapse of his empire and the loss of his family along with his solitary exile have made Walt cognizant of all the terrible things his actions resulted in. The fact that this journey would also result in the destruction of his enemies who have laid him low would ...

The way I took it as that both universes exist side by side (and not subservient to each other) and incidents in one universe affect the other. The causality traffic might seem a bit heavy sided towards Finn's universe being the dominant one, but on closer look you see that this isn't completely true. The Man Upstairs' LEGO policies have certainly shaped ...

I believe Emmet's movements can be explained in a similar way as in Toy Story. The toys each have an individual personality and autonomy, but those personalities and autonomous actions are affected by the person playing with the toys. This would mean that a large portion of the movie consisted of the characters acting in and of themselves. This makes ...

The biggest reason is revealed in episode 10 of season 2, The Cricket Game : Snow White is roaming the execution site at night when she meets Rumplestiltskin.

Sam Gold is the Demiurge. A greek/Gnostic term for the insane "god" who runs this slice of the universe. It is the god of the old testament. Not the Heavenly Father that JC speaks of. A piece of "Gold" lives within each one of us... it is not our friend and it prevents us from ascending the Kabala Tree, so we may reunite with the One True God of Love.

According to Daoism (mandarin pronunciation) and Buddhism, the spirits never die, they will reincarnate. Emanuel Swendenborg, a famous Swedish scientist, has the same belief. He even visited the "spirit world" and wrote many books about it.

Why wouldn't he accept it? He got a credit card as a gift to use for his own needs and he's already done other illegal stuff at that point and he wasn't really considering the moral or personal consequences of those things at all, let alone the possibility that Cobb had something more sinister in mind for him. Let's look at Bill's situation. He is basically ...

I think that when Beth said she got it, it is because Dawn put the fault on the others cops about how the hospital was managed. Each times she talked about what they had to do in order the other cops kept protecting the group. In the episode she said that her mentor died because he loved to help people but he put him in risky situation sometimes. She didn't ...

Basically, it wouldn't. The original Turing Machine (Or Christopher as it was named) was never programmed to identify words: it was programmed to identify consistencies. The enigma code wasn't deciphered through letters, it was deciphered through a tape displacement procedure known as its 'primitive operation' that's chosen signifiers are still honored ...

It could be a plot-hole, but I think it can be explained to certain level. As Gustave & Zero saw Dimitri to enter the hotel they both knew Dimitri must have gone there for a reason. And if he saw someone with painting in his/her hand he will definitely check it as "boy with apple" is missing and Gustave took it who was in-charge of the hotel at that ...

I found some explanations in the books that reasonably apply to the movies too. The rebellion wasn't full-fledged when they had the announcement of the Quell -- "It means we're on your side." That's what Bonnie said. I have people on my side? What side? Am I unwittingly the face of the hoped-for rebellion? District 13 wasn't willing to risk ...

As for official sources, both the actress and an executive producer offered their opinion on the matter. Says Walking Dead executive producer Gale Anne Hurd: She gets that Dawn was the kind of person who made up the rules as she went along. She would do anything to not only survive, but to maintain power. There is no negotiating with someone like that, ...


11

The way I understood it is thus: Beth has just realized that Dawn's power lies completely in making others subservient to her, and Dawn knows it. Dawn needs a ward who will listen to her and obey her. Noah filled that part prior to Beth's arrival. When Noah escapes, Dawn now needs to bind Beth to her, so she starts being nicer to her, covering up for her ...

I took it to mean that their group, the "hospital" group, is based off a very fragile alliance. No one is really in it for the group, they're each in it for themselves for different reasons. This is counter to Rick's group, where it's very much a Three Musketeers mentallity. As for Dawn telling Noah that she knew he'd be back, I took that as more of a ...


3

I think it means that Beth realized Dawn had no power, and was as scared as everyone else. Dawn was merely the ruler of a small kingdom, a kingdom that was fragile. She depended on, and exploited, fear to remain as its leader. She probably killed (Hanson?), the former king to assume the top spot, and she merely had to watch her back for the next up-and-comer ...

Unless I'm remembering this wrong, he didn't plan this ahead of time. He hid the bag in that vent with a string attached to it, planning to retrieve it later from the same room. But when he saw the truck outside his room, he got paranoid and decided to go to the adjacent room and pull the bag through there without the cartel guys (who, as he correctly ...

That's just a day dream. I think he has it on his chest because he just looked at the photo of him pointing to his chest and Teddy just told him they already killed the second attacker (which that truth is up in the air). He is enjoying the momentary victory, revenge, before he forgets all that he has learned, which happens as soon as he sees the tattoo ...

There are two types of ships used with Endurance: the Ranger and the slightly larger Lander. If you go to the Endurance model site, it is stated that the lander can carry down entire modules of Endurance. So they could be used to bring up any amount of supplies from Earth. ...
