comment Whose picture is it anyway?
Not to forget executive producers who make the movie possible from an organisational and financial point of view, editors, cutters, CGI and other post production staff who have a large influence on atmosphere, tone, visual and audio experience. As you said, its a collaborative effect, even if the director usually gets most of the credit in the end.

production tag, because it's a production question :)

Can you give a clearer definition what exactly you want to know? A movie is project created by a multitude of people. How do you define the "ownership" you are talking about?

comment Why does Harrison show different reactions to phaser fire?
@Paulster2 Interesting theory, you might want to post that as an answer. Carol did not have a phaser at that time. Also I noticed that he was hit directly in the face in that scene, might play into the different effect as well.

Fair enough, I have no comment by the producers to back this up, if that's what you are looking for.

Yes, the first shot hits him before he is standing completely. It's still not a surprise shot as the one from Scotty on the bridge, where he thought the situation was under control and did not expect anything. If you want to badly label this as a script error, I won't be able to convince you. I still think this is a reasonable in-universe explanation. There certainly was no difference in the phasers, and both times they were set to stun. (They needed him alive on the barge to rescue Kirk.)

The only in-universe explanation that makes sense to me is that he has to prepare himself to withstand the phaser shot. If you watch the barge scene, you see that he has a few seconds before Uhura shoots him. As I said above, he simply was not ready when Scotty hit him.

I suspect that his powers are great enough that he would have been able to withstand the phasers much easier and take down Uhura if he wasn't already exhausted at this point.

comment Does the extreme violence and sex in Game of Thrones affect its ratings?
I am not sure how GoT is broadcast in the US, but unless you have a situation where you give the audience the option to watch the episodes at the same time either edited or uncut, I don't see how the results could be compared. Comparisons looking at edited ratings after it has premiered in an uncut version will be pure speculation.

Doesn't really answer the question though, being biohazard could just be a property of the Rabbit's foot, not necessarily its purpose.
