comment Why would Q attach the computer of a known cyberterrorist to the MI6 computer network?
"one of the biggest facepalm moments in the movie" and that is against some pretty stiff competition!

comment How are fake reality shows not false advertising? And if they are, why do they get away with it?
I believe that reality TV contains information in the credits which explain the actual details. In America's Strictest Parents there was a note in the credits that some scenes were staged, if you watched a few episodes you could see them quite plainly too.

comment Opening credits dancing bones
I saw this in the UK probably 5 - 10 years later. In my recollection the bones were green though and there might have been a top hat too.

comment Could someone tell me the name of this Vietnam film?
The abandoned building with someone shooting out of it was probably Full Metal Jacket! The sniper who is there for no reason, can shoot through walls, never misses and even the blood spurts out of her targets at the wrong angle so you can never tell where she is.

comment Why was the necklace given to Sansa in season 4?
Left and right are the names she gave to her guards. Olenna asking Sansa about her necklace is not the primary plan for thar exact reason.

comment Movie about female treasure hunter
When did you see it? In the cinema? On television? Was it in English? Was it live action? Anyone famous? Any memorable dialog?

comment Why such a complex plan to smuggle the poison to the Purple Wedding?
Yeah I noticed those but if someone else wants to reveal a spoiler they can, does not mean I am going to! Although I did not realise it was not really much of a spoiler. I do not remember it being revealed in the episode (I might have missed that part/episode).

Fair enough, I did not realise it was revealed one episode later - will reformat the answer

comment Why such a complex plan to smuggle the poison to the Purple Wedding?
The poison came from one bead on the necklace (ISTR the rightmost one if you are facing her). If you watch the scene you can see the scene where the poinsoner takes it from her as they are talking

comment Why such a complex plan to smuggle the poison to the Purple Wedding?
The framing of Tyrion was not planned. It just happened that he was unlucky in having motive (from being humiliated) and opportunity (being appointed cup bearer). These things could not have been predicted by the poisoner. Tyrion was just very unlucky.

comment Did Jules Winfield know Vincent Vega before the Royale with Cheese scene?
lol - two people look at exactly the same thing and get exactly the opposite interpretation! :-) However, the subtle lines like "You'll dig it the most" and "You know I respect you" hint to me that they did know each other. They could just be work colleagues that just met but, to me, they seem closer than just a professional respect.

comment Title of an action movie from late 80s, early 90s where Soviet is invading USA
@Paulster2, nope. It is a verifiable fact ... only joking :-). Agreed that is a matter of opinion but I was very disappointed with the remake and thought the character elements in the first were far superior and made the film a lot more interesting.

comment Trial of an alleged rapist. At the end, a single scene explains it all
Was the court room flashback shown in a split screen? The girl's recollection on the left and the boy's on the right showing the different way they were telling the story (what she was wearing, how she spoke etc.)?

Well they might become walkers and they might not, none of them would be completely sure. Would you want to chance it?
