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 ...

This actually happens everytime somebody exits the car in the film (and in quite a few other films from the era too). There are two possible reasons for this: Firstly, Hitchcock did love his filming and it's highly possible he felt having the people exit via the passenger door gave him a better shot. In fact, some basic googling shows a general consensus ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

TvTropes calls this the OminouslyOpenDoor and files it as a death trope, meaning that usually the investigator will find a dead suspect or witness in the room: The good guys are having a hard time finding a lead for the current investigation. They find a possible culprit or a vital link in the investigation. The team gets an address and find the door ...

I want to say it was his polite way of saying, "Not really, it made me aroused." When men become aroused, well, you likely know what happens, and it can lead to some slight...discomfort? Cap is definitely still fairly old fashioned as you put it, and simply wanted to be polite and not vulgar.

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 ...

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 ...

Might be Spy Hard (1996). Secret agent WD-40 Dick Steele (Leslie Nielsen) has his work cut out for him. Along with the mysterious and lovely Veronique Ukrinsky, Agent 3.14, he must rescue the kidnapped Barbara Dahl and stop the evil genius, a General named Rancor (Andy Griffith), from seizing control of the entire world. Rancor was wounded ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

This scene was meant to put a spotlight on Jobs' darker side, but the event never really happened. In a fact check, this scene was specifically mentioned: Take the movie's font scene. At an all-hands meeting, an employee dares to question Jobs’s choice of “adding pretty fonts” on the Lisa computer, the forerunner to the Macintosh, causing Jobs to fire ...

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 ...

Actually, the second time Pepper kicks a missile, possibly the "ex-wife", to Killians face. Adding that to the damage he took when the armor self-destructed, suposedly overloads his healing factor.

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.

No details were ever given in the show, but the implication was that Gus was part of the Pinochet government in Chile. See for confirmation this interview with the actor who played Gus: http://seriable.com/breaking-bad-giancarlo-esposito-reveals-gus-backstory-that-might-still-come-to-light/ which includes this: Gus was probably a guy who was a General ...

Are you talking about Pietro Annigoni's portrait of Queen Elizabeth II? Here it is: It's actually visible quite clearly in other parts of the episode.
