comment What does Newt say at the end of Aliens?
@Nobby exactly, that was the version I was watching. So sad that this connection between Newt and Ripley is not continued in the series.

comment Does After Earth's sci-fi jargon have any basis in reality or is it complete gibberish?
+1 this is a really good answer coming from someone who hasn't seen the sequence the quote is from. You should watch the film to see how spot on you are.

comment Transformers 3 Computer Graphics Production
Render hours can be a very ambiguous measurement. Sometimes it refers to a single thread so 1 computer could complete 4 hours if it has 4 cores. It also depends on the speed of a single CPU. Sometimes they use old standards like a 2Ghz CPU as the baseline. Unless these details are stated, then you really don't know how long it would take your computer to do the same job.

comment What do actors actually inhale when they snort cocaine or smoke crack?
It depends on the actor. I'm sure there are a few who bring their own cocaine.

comment How can weightlessness be simulated on film?
Gravity had some scenes filmed underwater, but water causes challenges for lighting. This is a list question, because there is no right answer and movie directors will implement the effect anyway they can. It's a challenge to do it better than the previous space movie.

comment How can weightlessness be simulated on film?
The rotating sets in 2001 were created to make the actors look like they were walking with magnetic boots (when in the transport craft), and to show Dave jogging around the crew cabin. The other actor was strapped to his chair as the entire set rotated. Very cool, but not to simulate weightlessness more like simulated gravity.

comment A movie about getting to a fake utopian planet / virtual environment
I was going to say it describes many TV episodes. There is one just like this in Stargate, Outer Limits and a few others.

comment What happened at the end of Rocky?
It's a common ending to a boxing match. Winner by decision of the judges. This happens when both fighters last for the duration of the scheduled rounds.
