He was wearing a mail underneath, which is a battle clothing not for a marriage ceremony. But her suspicion started when she notices Black Walder Rivers close the banquet hall doors and the musicians in the gallery begin playing "The Rains of Castamere"- the song commemorating House Lannister's decisive and brutal victory against the rebellious ...

In order to have sufficient air to breathe in underwater situations, the air is very highly pressurized (3000 psi on average). The first and second stage of the scuba regulator work to reduce the level of the pressure to the ambient level for the person using the air. In order to hold that high-pressure air, it's necessary that the container be made of ...

TL;DR : Catelyn slapped Roose because she realized that they were about to be betrayed, and that Roose was a part of it. She knew this because he was wearing chainmail at the wedding. One of the most sacred traditions in Westeros is that of "Guest Right", which is a sacred law protecting both hosts AND guests from hostility while staying at another's ...

He is a Bravo; their swords, Rapiers (Arya's sword, Needle is created based on a Rapier), are not the same as a Westerosi Knight's (who usually use a Long or Broadsword). Unlike the fighting style of Westerosi knights, Water Dancers favor slender, lighter swords for a faster, more elegant fighting style based on sword thrusts, instead of the hacking and ...

TL;DR She wasn't observing him to decide his guilt, but to find out the best way to kill him Longer Version: When Maybe-Jaqen asks Arya what she saw while observing the Thin Man, he wasn't asking if proof of his guilt was found, but rather what his daily routines were. The Faceless Men, as @Reyssor pointed out, are not vigilantes out to right the wrongs ...

The scene in question is the scene William Friedkin has referred to as the most difficult in his career. The bridge was built specifically for the film out of steel cables made to look like fraying rope. It also had hidden hydraulics to control the motion of both the bridge, and the vehicles traversing it. According to the Wikipedia article: The bridge ...

The scene appears to be an homage to the classic 1967 photo "Flower Power" by Bernie Boston. Flower Power is an historic photograph taken by photographer Bernie Boston for the now-defunct Washington Star. It was nominated for the 1967 Pulitzer Prize. Taken on October 21, 1967, during a march to the Pentagon, the iconic photo shows a young, ...

Homer was not regrouping at a prearranged place, a safe point or a tactically strong point, but at a sea food restaurant! Typical of Homer. The only thing that would be more typical of Homer is regrouping at either Moe's or a donut shop.

From The Huffington Post who interviewed Joe Wright, the director: One of the most memorable scenes in 'Pan', Joe Wright’s lavish Peter Pan prequel is when young Londoner Peter is first transported to Neverland, and encounters Blackbeard, an out-of-control Hugh Jackman, tyrannising thousands of pirates to mine for fairy dust. All this is ...

This sounds like U-571 (2000) with Matthew McConaughey, Bill Paxton and Harvey Keitel. In the midst of World War II, the battle below the seas rages. The Nazi's have the upper edge as the Allies are unable to crack their war codes. That is, until a wrecked U-boat sends out an SOS signal, and the Allies realise this is their chance to seize the 'enigma ...

Firefighters use composite pressure tanks that are quite light, so there's no problem with finding non-metallic construction that will withstand SCUBA class pressures. No, the problem is with the "take it down with you" part. Those firefighter cylinders weight very little in air, but in water they will have negative weight. That is, they float. In fact, a ...

This hasn't really been addressed from the film-makers, but it appears the most obvious interpretation of the scene is that it was a waterboarding. The original script describes the scene as follows: A door opens and we find GUILLERMO, 45, fat, three day stubble, and very unhappy to be here. His hands are cuffed behind his back. A DEA AGENT holds ...

For question #2, for a brief moment you can see that the man is holding a map of Valyria. Presumably this sailor was taking the route through and near the Doom of Valyria, which is generally considered cursed by the majority of people in Essos and Westeros. It would be perfectly normal for the thin man to believe this superstition, giving him reason enough ...

She doesn't heal him in a direct physical way but through a more emotional/psychological way. Nux is the character with the biggest arc in Fury road as his character changes immensely from his introduction till his exit. His mental turning point is defined by the touch from the scene you described so seeing a difference in his complexion is absolutely ...

Probable reason is blushing, her touch brings about a change of color. As they are war-boys, they must be alien to compassion/affection. So when touched suddenly, his face gets back some colour. And no she doesn't have healing power/effect. Because if that was so, she would have tried to heal Angharad's leg wound, earlier in the film.

This was definitely a prank. Danny and Rusty didn't want Linus in on every meeting, but Linus insisted he be involved. So they pre-arranged with Matsui to start a Zen-type discussion about, basically, nothing. At the end, they were to make it look as if Linus' ramblings almost cost them a job, in the hopes that Linus would back away from his desire to be ...

This is not revealed on the show. The only two people who knew if Arthur had revealed Dexter's true identity to Rita are Arthur and Rita. Arthur was killed by Dexter shortly after he'd killed Rita, and he tells Dexter nothing that indicates he'd told her about him (nor does he leave any messages behind indicating it). Rita's last words are in her phone ...

Burhan already makes a great point in that Clyde was merely exhausted from his anger and had nothing to live for anymore, so he was partly relieved to finally die and get back to his family, something he himself couldn't and wouldn't do. And I also agree that it surely isn't really guilt over what he did. However, there is yet another aspect to this. The ...

Ghostbusters is unusual in that the studio commissioned two different screenplay novelisations which often leads to some weird canon clashes. In this particular instance, however they both agree. Egon was doing a wiring job on the alarm system connected to Janine's desk. Spengler crawls out, having finished the wiring job. He gazes down at her ...

They are called Cheval de frise The cheval de frise (plural: chevaux de frise) was a medieval defensive anti-cavalry measure consisting of a portable frame (sometimes just a simple log) covered with many projecting long iron or wooden spikes or spears. While you're correct that in the film they don't stop any of the attacking Greeks, embedded stakes ...

From the actual movie script, not a secondary source: FADE IN: 1 EXT. DESERT - DAY 1 Shimmering waves of heat. A flat unforgiving landscape stretches to infinity. A storm of dust gathers on the horizon, small at first, increasing in size as ...

Possibility #1: You're conflating scenes from two different movies: The original, in which the special effects now seem outdated and unconvincing, and the sequel, in which the special effects still hold up pretty well today. Possibility #2: The scene doesn't exist as you remember it, ...

In-universe, this is the sexual equivalent of the "You do NOT want to know" trope. The implication is that he's been doing something unspeakably kinky and weird to Marla (something which caused her to scream in ecstasy) and no further explanation is given. You're basically expected to leave it to your own dirty imagination to work it out. Notably the ...

With about 99% certainty, I can tell you its not Heath Ledger, but a guy with similar hair. If you blow up the photo, the differences between Heath and that extra become more pronounced. You can see better photos here. If it was meant for the joker to be at the restaurant, the scars would be evident, as in this photo when he is seen dressed as a cop.

In the end, that was what he wanted - to be with his daughter and wife. The rage of the way his wife and daughter were killed and the deal that was made drove him into this madness for revenge which was all consuming. He wanted relief from that, which is what he got in the end when he was finally trapped by his own bomb. It most definitely isn't guilt; as ...

Marion Stein has a good explanation over at Happy Nice Time People: They go to a “desanctified church” where Mary announces she’s found “the heart of the conspiracy.” A group dressed in pointed sheets, not white sheets but nevertheless clan-like, is chanting. Why the KKK reference? It’s another nod to the source material, The Five Orange Pips. ...

Yep, Tim Curry's the henchman, and the battle's between Denis Leary and William Shatner, no less! You're looking for Loaded Weapon 1 from 1993 starring Emilio Estevez and Samuel L. Jackson. However, I think the implication is that Tim Curry can't find the final quotation (it's from a Beatles song: We Can Work It Out, 1965) in the quotation book, hence Leary ...

The simple answer is Yes. The 3 helicopters to which you refer are known as 'Marine One'(the callsign for any USMC aircraft carrying the President of the United States), however unlike in the movie, the three helicopters do not fly in consistent formation, they are constantly shifting positions in an effort to prevent any attacks from the ground (at least ...

All the answers were very nice and it's much clearer now. I should only leave a comment but for the sake of completeness/clarity and to be able to quote image (some interesting notes I found on the internet as well), I'm grouping the point in a single answer. First of all, it should be made clear that the captain in the scene - who was turned down by the ...

I think it was just scribbles/nonsensical doodles, from the looks of it. Below is a still from the episode, if it helps any: (Edit: I got the image from this article. Didn't find it very useful otherwise, but figured I should source the picture.)
