I like to cook, and I love my CSA. I write about those things on this little blog.

comment Why are computer hackers shown to either be geniuses, or show them doing it in fantastic ways?
This doesn't really seem to be asking about the movie itself...seems like a thinly veiled attempt to get a tutorial on cracking passwords than asking for a "plot explanation" (one of the tags). ]I feel like it belongs on Security or Skeptics...

comment How are injections given without injuring actors?
I still think that your question is incredibly broad; no one can speak to how injections are done in all movies. People can just speculate that they are probably not real injections. They are almost certainly not injecting the actors with anything. They're just spring-loaded syringes. And if you want to know how spring-loaded syringes work, that doesn't seem on-topic for a movies site.

comment How are injections given without injuring actors?
I also feel like this question is impossible to answer. They are probably real syringes for the most part, but I doubt any of the actors are receiving actual injections. However, it's impossible to make a blanket statement about all movies.

@GautamK "Not really a mainstream movie"? In the US, it absolutely is. There were three Jackass movies, grossing $11.2 million, $72 mil, $118 mil respectively in box office revenue. And it was a long-running popular TV show before that. I don't care for any of the Jackass movies, but they're definitely mainstream.

comment Explanation of the ending of “Oldboy”
This is the start of a great answer; could you add some more to it to include elements of the film that lead you to why you came to the conclusions you did? Adding references to support your claim of revenge being the sole character motivation in a lot of Asian media would be good, too.

comment How can the ending of “Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance” be explained?
Though I haven't seen this movie, this question sounds suspiciously like a plot holes /writer's mistakes question. Doesn't seem like a good fit for this site.

comment Ending of Donnie Darko
I don't think this question belongs here. IMDB and Wikipedia both provide succinct summaries of what happens at the end - the answers here don't add any new understanding.

comment Are there specific plot inconsistencies in The Matrix Trilogy?
I'm confused about what the point of this question is...If it's actually to determine whether there are plot inconsistencies in the Matrix trilogy, it's a simple yes or no answer. And I don't think plot-hole or plot inconsistency questions make the internet better, for the most part. If the goal of the question is to find out why people "reject both Matrix sequels"...that seems like a bad subjective question. (See: blog.stackoverflow.com/2010/09/good-subjective-bad-subjective)
