It is definitely Selina Kyle, never thought it could be someone else (and have never heard anybody not referring to her being Selina Kyle). Yet that particular screenshot is indeed a bit vague, but together with the fact that due to the story's development she is most probable to be Selina Kyle it still bears enough resemblence to Anne Hathaway to be quite ...

It was definitely the last resort of a desperate man. Broken and dazed, his company in tatters, Miller doggedly pulls out his pistol and fires at the tank in a futile but defiant gesture. His mission was over, Ryan had been found and given the message, Miller's trusted sergeant lay dead at his side, as far as Miller was concerned this was the end of the ...

Although I have nothing to back this up, I am a writer and one of my characters parallels the Hulk fairly closely. In my mind, there's little doubt why he did it. He loves to hit things, he just got through having an aggressive fight, Thor is still upright, and he knows that Thor won't be hurt by it. It's like punching your teammate on the shoulder pads ...

The song you are talking about was the theme tune of the TV series Mission: Impossible (1966–1973). It returned to television for two seasons from 1988 to 1990. Original Theme(You Tube). The Mission Impossible movie is based on the TV series. In 1996, the theme was remade by U2 members Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen, Jr. for the soundtrack for the Mission ...

This is not just particular to the movies, but also to the books. Tolkien intentionally chose to translate and transliterate Westron to English. From the Tolkien Gateway: According to Tolkien's fiction, Westron was the language spoken and understood by the protagonists of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. Many names of characters and places, in the ...

A lot of people seem to think Juggernaut is the earliest film to use the "wire dilemma" trope. I found references to it everywhere from Amazon reviews to rap lyrics. Slightly more reliable references include: Movies you should own: Juggernaut (Terror on the Britannic) The first film to develop the 'red wire/blue wire' dilemma, it's a tense piece ...

Most people (including you, and most of the cops visiting the coroner) wouldn't eat something while examining a dead body, be it for hygienic reasons or because they're disgusted of dead bodies. So first of all seeing him eat something while examining a corpse infuses some kind of awkward feeling, making the coroner stick out from us normal persons as kind ...

AMC's own description of the episode explains that at first Skyler basks in the luxury of Ted's heated bathroom floor but later Skyler stands in Ted's bathroom, fixing her make up post-tryst... Suddenly aware of and uncomfortable with the luxurious surroundings, she looks down at the warm floor, grabs a towel and stands on it. Personally, I took ...

I had always thought that referred to Natalie Portman who graduated from Harvard in 2003 around the time that The Social Network was to have taken place. Out of the list on Wikipedia (which is certainly by no means authoritative or exhaustive), she's the only actor/actress that would fit that time frame.

You can spot him reading a few different books: Family happiness (Leo Tolstoy) The Call of the Wild (Jack London) Doctor Zhivago (Boris Pasternak) and, of course, Tanaina plantlore, Dena'ina k'et'una (Priscilla Russell Kari) In the movie You can also see the entire book collection is carrying (at about minute 20), featuring: War and Peace (Leo ...

He is using High Voltage to de-magnetize a hidden identifying strip in the passport. Since the lack of the presence of this strip doesn't cause any issues at the Airport, we are to assume that her passport had this magnetic identifier because of her job, to keep tabs on her travel. By disabling it, she is able to use the passport and garner no additional ...

According to the Notes Section of the Arrested Development Wiki for this episode, S1 Ep3, The Parents Television Council (PTC) had troubles with the profanity in the series, especially since in this episode Buster had two long strings of profanity.It also noted that Tony Hale personally does not use profanity, so, if the script called for it like here, he ...

Right after the last episode of Breaking Bad, there was a live Talking Bad show episode with some of the actors and crew, where they told us that this was Jesse daydreaming of how he was crafting a wood box a long time ago in school, and how this daydream abruptly ends with the "leash" pulling on him like a captive dog. On his group therapy Jesse talked ...

Added examples, all over 5:05 - hopefully will lose the downvote. I would say no, principally because of Jackie Chan. His movies like Supercop and Rumble in the Bronx are basically 90-minute street fights punctuated with bursts of dialogue. A few excerpts from the master of the running non-stop fight: Who Am I as an example clocks in at over 5:05. ...

So far we don't know. All we do know is that Gustavo Fring immigrated from Chile to Mexico in 1986. What he did back in Chile and who he was remains a mystery. Hank investigated his past and couldn't find anything, leading him to suspect that the Pinochet regime (who ruled Chile at the time) were somehow responsible. Don Eladio's words seems to suggest that ...

The opera is called Mefistofele, which is a Faustian opera (i.e. dude makes a deal with the Devil). Wikipedia states: Batman Begins depicts the opera being performed onstage, using an excerpt of Rampiamo, rampiamo, che il tempo ci gabba (Chorus of Warlocks and Witches from Act 2, scene 2) from the 1973 EMI (see "Recordings" above). During the scene, ...

It is more of a wry, fatalistic, and sad smile, as when she sees young Cole at the Airport, she finally puts all the pieces together from what Cole had told her. In the theater, Cole falls asleep and remembers/dreams seeing her running in the Airport. He wakes panicked, to find her gone. He runs into the lobby to see her as a blonde, just as she was in ...

I think Jesse reclaimed the perfect box he made in high school that he gave away for an ounce of weed. Into this box he put away all the awful things that happened to him during his servitude and before. Vince is very good with clues and foreshadowing and I think the box lets us know that Jesse is going to be okay. He's able to remember the satisfaction of ...

Blue letters represent the group which bid on the monster. Do you remember the scene at the start of the movie where they start collecting money from the people working ? That's what the money is for. For example in the movie The Redneck Torture family was chosen by the characters. The Maintenance team bet on that before the group spends their night at the ...

According to this book, Cleopatra's entry into Rome from the 1963 Elizabeth Taylor film is the most expensive scene in motion picture history (that must be assuming that you adjust for inflation). The scene is on YouTube here. As well as the massive set and giant Sphinx the scene required 10,000 extras, Elizabeth Taylor's dress cost $6,500 alone.

It was obviously a case of Hulk having the last laugh, so to speak and was intended to make people smile or laugh. I highly doubt that there is any "official" reasoning available for such a minor thing which is clearly intended for the viewers to make what they will of it, with the implication that it was in relation to their (Hulk & Thor's) earlier ...

Well when you look at the attempts to move it, it clearly does move, but very difficultly. I would suspect that he put some sort of extremely strong electromagnet just under the floor. That way any metal objects that are close enough are held tight towards it (like how neodymium magnets are extremely difficult to pull apart). It would be an electromagnet ...

Here is the timeline, in the movie, for everything relating to the note. 5:22, David writes the note, passes it to Becky 5:35, Audience sees note: 5:49, Becky checks something 5:54, Becky sets note on base of lamp post 5:57, David goes to pick up note, but it blows away and David chases it 6:56, Note blows into Arcana Cabana 1:30:38 to 1:30:52, David ...

Long shot here... Maybe the authors were interested in the idea of a code for underground worlds... Subway lines 1239 take you through NYC to Penn Station/ 34th Street (think Miracle on 34th Street - that other movie about whether Santa is real, which is referenced in the Santa Clause at one point when the children scream "Let him go! Let Santa go!"). ...

He's a supervillain you're not familiar with. He's Batroc the Leaper, a villain from the comic books. He's a goofy acrobatic martial artist (specifically, he uses savate) who primarily fights Captain America, and has a French accent in the comics. He is a mercenary with a deep sense of honor, which they depicted in the film, and his martial arts style and ...

From an interview with writer and director Neil Burger: Q: Several of the illusions that are shown in the film are based on real illusions from that time. A: That's what I tried to do with the illusions. It is based on a short story, and it has some of the illusions in it. I used that as my point of departure. Magicians at that time -- in a ...

The big ploy about this song is that it is associated with the Lannister family line as a whole. The look of horror that appears on her face is that of dread as the presence of this song means that the Frey's aren't their ally, but actually are with the Lannisters. As stated and shown, it is truly a trap and one of the most shocking events in the whole ...

I haven't watched the movie (either), but I'm sure the following snippets will help. From Associated Press: The $10,000 contributor, 45-year-old Canadian entrepreneur and currency exchange site XE.com co-founder Steven Dengler, ended up playing not a waiter (as the reward had advertised), but introducing a viral video with James Franco, who also ...

We were previously shown that those altered by Extremis aren't immortal. Tony killed one on the airplane by blasting out his heart. I think the assumption in that situation is that without a heart to feed blood to the rest of your body you'll die. When Killian was blown up the first time, he took a lot of damage, but it seems that his body mostly stayed ...

The answer is right there in the scene: Cole turning to face Jurgen. Smile gone. Glint of a gun inside his jacket. Jurgen looking steadily back at him. Takes a deep gulp of coffee. COLE You had fifteen minutes after I called. Why didn't you run? JURGEN Where would I run from ...
