comment Why are people playing police officers not arrested?
Could the dive bomber leave a note to let me know how I might improve the question?

comment How come the unsullied are overwhelmed so easily?
In the series we do not know who the actual harpy fighters were. They might have been mercenaries hired by the families or something like that.

comment What does Mycroft mean when he says “we don't want a repeat of 1972?”
Was not plagiarised from there at all. Have a look at my profile and you can even see the reference to battle reenactment (or just look at some of my other answers).

comment Who is that girl who attacked Daenerys in the episode “Valar Dohaeris” (S03E01)?
Could the dive bomber let me know how the answer could be improved? Or is it a certain someone just trying to be spiteful? :-) (you know who you are!)

And? She is, basically, a one shot character. Whether she is a warlock or not makes no real difference as she has never been involved before and never appears again.

Sorry why does the dramatic closeup of the guy on the roof relate to the guys on the boat?

If she had had sex with the guys on the boat then the ... whatever it was would have chased them rather than her, wouldn't it?

comment Why does Shae betray Tyrion?
The character struck me as quite different between the book and TV show. In the book we really only see things from Tyrion's point of view and he seemed to be seeing her through rose coloured glasses. She never gave a fig about him, just his money. In the TV show she was in a rage after he sent her away and seemed like she did it out of revenge.

comment What are the accumulated major injuries/wounds James Bond has received in the film franchise?
In the books he would more likely have died from the massive amount of alcohol and cigars he consumed!

comment Is there a deeper meaning to Fabienne's pot belly talk?
It is quite possible that it means absolutely nothing more than it says. One of Tarrantino's stylistic flourishes is dialog which is not relevant to the plot or symbolic and only serves to show the character's relationship (although it is not only him that does this). The example he gave in an interview is the 'Royal with cheese' conversation between Jules and Vincent.

comment Why did Kubrick avoid a direct explanation to “Clockwork orange”'s meaning?
@ShizZ., you are naturally free to stick with and to anything you like. Personally I will not necessarily stick with anything and am always open to new ideas and interpretations even combining them or creating my own etc.

comment Why did Kubrick avoid a direct explanation to “Clockwork orange”'s meaning?
@ShizZ, Ah, I was not aware that the work of master artists only had one single correct interpretation. That should make the work of critically analysing poems, films, painting, music etc. much easier.

Great, thanks. That is very interesting.

Agreed that this is what the maker was aiming at. This under current is probably why I found the film so awesomely disturbing. I was hoping that there might be another explanation on the surface narrative though.

That is a very interesting point and seems pretty much bang on. However, is there a non metaphorical answer?

comment Why did Kubrick avoid a direct explanation to “Clockwork orange”'s meaning?
Kubrick refused to explain most of his films and left them open to interpretation. However, the phrase clock work orange is slang for queer or unusual. It possibly relates to Alex's sexual transformation from hetro sexual abuser to homo sexual victim (the slang queer also being old fashioned and derogative slang for homosexual)?

comment Why did Django come to Candieland?
I though they cover that particular plan? ISTR Schultz tells Django that if he tried to buy the slave girl Candie would, most likely, refuse to even speak to him or charge him a huge amount (although it has been a while since I watched it). He needed some way of attracting Candie's interest and gaining a position from which to deal hence the story about being a fellow fight enthusiast? Maybe he could not think of another angle to play to gain Candie's interest?

comment Why did Django come to Candieland?
Ah, okay I see your point. Django was an asset to the plan they showed but they could have used a different plan which did not require Django?
