comment Why isn't the term “Zombie” used?
@Rob I think the simple answer is that while the TV series is based on the Comic Book, they are different in plot and characters. They're set in different universes. Kirkman likely decided that having the characters unaware of a zombie trope would be a more interesting dramatic choice in a live-action setting.

comment Little Boy Playing In His Room, Firetruck
+1 In spite of the lack of detail, I find it hard to believe that the description could fit any other movie. :)

comment Why did “The Narwhal” smuggle lemurs?
I assumed that the coded message was meant for the thug, so he knew where to find the Narwhal, and the lemurs were in transit before his daughter was kidnapped.

comment How did the glove save Tony Stark?
@atticae I don't understand why you would think it could pull him out while still attached. It looks like the little "thrusters" are on the interior surface of the glove, wouldn't they damage his skin, or even be unable to operate while attached to the rest of the suit?

comment Why is the Death Star shaped like a sphere?
@Hakonbogen not necessarily. On a large scale it might look spherical, but maybe it's just built in a "stepped" way.

comment How were zombies first depicted in film?
I think Night of the Living Dead cribbed the zombie horde idea from The Last Man on Earth starring none other than Vincent Price (and produced ~5 years previously), which itself got the idea from the book "I am Legend".

comment Looper: Why don't more things change back?
That's a reason we weren't shown it: Old Joe wasn't the 'good guy' — we're at first tempted to think that, but his actions show he isn't. Young Joe realizes that, and the future consequences of the actions of his older self, which is why he changes things.

How do we know the things Old Joe did aren't undone? The movie basically ends shortly after young Joe kills himself and we are not shown all the consequences.

comment Flying typewriters or sewing machines and the dangers of industrialisation
Hmm… I remember seeing this on TV when I was young, but I don't think it's as old as you think.

comment Gun Scene in Goldeneye
It's easy to overanalyze the meaning of "use". Certainly the villain implies with that word that only three people in the world carry and use that gun exclusively and habitually. For example, I think only the most pedantic and foolish villain would say "only three men I know use such a gun… well, four if you include my henchman Jenssen who recently acquired the recently departed Mr. Smith's gun… he's standing behind you right now."

Option 4: The Henchman took the weapon after his boss killed #1 or #2.

comment Who's on the cover of this issue of Playgirl in 30 Rock?
@DForck42 Well, The Empire Strikes Back was released 21 May 1980 so there's that.

comment Looking for the complete Happy Days Spin Off Tree
@JacobG Well I think the difference is that Lucas made a decision in casting his film partly due to viewing the pilot Happy Days was based upon. Admittedly a tenuous link, but a link nonetheless. :)

comment Looking for the complete Happy Days Spin Off Tree
@JacobG "I can't find any other relationship between the two." – The fact that Ron Howard starred in both American Graffiti and Happy Days doesn't count? ;) Reading up on the history, Happy Days started as an unsold pilot that Paramount rejected, George Lucas asked to see the pilot to determine if Ron Howard would be suitable for his movie, then Garry Marshall recast the pilot to turn Happy Days into a series.

comment Why did Nolan choose “Non, je ne regrette rien” as a kick song in Inception?
@OliverG Hans Zimmer said that the song was almost dropped from the film when Marion Cotillard was cast as Cobb’s wife. Zimmer said he talked Nolan into keeping the song in the film, arguing that audiences would not be distracted by the connection.

comment What was Nicholas Van Orton's real birthday date in “The Game”?
The invitation states the celebration takes place on the 20th, it says nothing about what on what exact day the birthday falls. Conrad gave Nicolas his gift, the CRS voucher, on his birthday. The movie's events span the 9 days between the presentation of the voucher and the fall from the building.

comment What was the first crossover movie like The Avengers, using only movie franchises?
Who Framed Roger Rabbit featured Daffy Duck and Donald Duck in the same scene.
