"To avoid criticism do nothing, say nothing, be nothing.."
(Elbert Hubbard)


I studied Physics at the University of Vienna, but I'm interested in all natural sciences.

Since I don't believe in life after death I try to explore and learn as much as I can about this world.

BTW, that quote from Stan Lee is from this interview (where he is asked about his Iron Man 3 cameo)

comment What is the Butterfly-Effect in Mr. Nobody?
@ashutosh - The "butterfly effect" is not an ability or superpower, it's a term for 'small changes can lead to big differences'.

comment What is the main promotional image of House of Cards trying to portray?
Kevin Spacey is not the president, but Majority Whip (although he aspires to be president). - Not his knuckles, but his hands are bloody. 'Having blood on his hands' could allude to something he does in Episode 10. - There doesn't seem to be a national crises, at least nothing out of the ordinary. So the upside-down flag might refer to the way politics is made.

Are you asking about 'worldwide' or only the 'US'?

comment Silent film created after 1990
@knut - It's not the answers I consider problematic (I actually upvoted yours), but the question. It basically asks for a list of silent films made after 1990 (that didn't win an Oscar). Future or past list questioners could point to this and ask "Why is this list question okay, but not mine?"

This still seems to be a list question (see the answers).

comment Silent film created after 1990
Single Bound is a 3-mins short, and The Fall is hardly a "silent movie" (watch the trailer).

comment Camera shot with close-up next to farther away standing person
@ChristianRau - With your comments and after reading your question again, I now realize that you are not asking for a term that describes the whole shebang of that scene, but only the very specific camera shot of "one person in the foreground, one in the background, standing in a backlit doorway". So I agree, since mise-en-scene is about the scene as a whole, it's not the right term for that particular camera shot. - I'll delete my current superfluous answer and see if I can dig up something else.

comment Did the show Seinfeld come about in a manner similar to the way it was depicted in the show?
The DVD set has an hour long documentary about how the show began. I'd have to watch it again to remember details, but it was initially supposed to be a 90-min TV special that follows Jerry Seinfeld around and shows how he comes up with his material

comment What film or tv show is being referenced in Psych episode Santabarbaratown?
@ChristianRau - There are a few more references, e.g the victim's name is Veronica Towne, wich alludes to Chinatown's writer Robert Towne. And there is a waitress named Ida, which is a reference to the character Ida Sessions in Chinatown.

comment Stripper assassin and a ghetto-blaster
If you are talking about the 2002 Hong Kong flick Naked Weapon then you must confuse it with something else, because there is no such scene in the movie. At one point Maggie Q goes to a "client", drops her coat and has sex with him on the bed, but he draws a gun on her (because it's a trap), and she kills him with her hand. There is also no ghetto blaster.
