"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.

comment What are the origins of the name 'Malekith'?
I'd actually go with "mal = bad, evil", e.g. malign, malevolent, malice, malfunction... and of course the famous Disney character Maleficent, the "Mistress of all Evil".

comment How can the Holmes brothers be wrong?
Another explanation could be that he doesn't want to admit the HE is a fan of Sherlock Holmes, which is why he says "My girlfriend is a big fan of yours."

comment Why are the Aunts' surnames in Pushing Daisies 'Charles'?
I'd have to check to be sure, but I think this was explained in the episode where they solve a murder in the nunnery. - When Lily and Vivian were in their twenties(?) their mother married Charles Charles' father, thus they adopted the surname "Charles". - Yes, this means Charles had a love affair with both his stepsisters.

comment What was going on between Bilbo and Thorin on that ledge?
Moments before the scene you refer to Balin says to Thorin: "A sickness lies upon that treasure. A sickness which drove your grandfather mad." - And to quote the old Bilbo from the first Hobbit movie: "Thrór's love of gold had grown too fierce and sickness had begun to grow within him. It was a sickness of the mind."

comment Is Amy right about Indiana Jones being irrelevant to the outcome?
Well, Amy does specify what she means by "story" (see the quotes in the OP). - Of course, one can sidestep the question by saying "that isn't the "true" story."

comment Is Amy right about Indiana Jones being irrelevant to the outcome?
I like this answer, although one could argue that since the scene wasn't in the movie it doesn't count. - But it makes me wonder whether Belloq/the Nazis would have heeded the warning. Their motivation was different from Indy's.

comment Are talent doubles used for chopstick usage in American dramas?
Why go through the trouble of getting a double when using chopsticks is not important to the plot or character? And if it is important, then an actor would probably be willing to learn it. I mean compared to e.g. horse riding, stunt car driving, hand-to-hand combat, weapons training,... learning to use chopsticks is rather easy, and low risk.

comment On the elements of a internationally successful comedy movie
If there were a working "formula" on how to make an internationally successful comdedy/movie then the studios would surely use it.
