comment Looking for seventies-eighties sci-fi movie with kid
Since you say your memory could faulty, is it maybe this scene from "The Neverending Story" (1984)?

comment How do the new X-Files reach German free TV so fast?
"They are going out first on our channels — nowhere else," - Curiously, the german dubbed premiere will actually be 4 days earlier, on Austria's "ORF". - On "ProSieben Austria" you'll have to wait until February 8th (the same as Germany).

comment Why was the episode “The Mountain of Youth” almost lost?
@try-catch-finally - Since I live in Austria I know that "The Mountain of Youth" did air in Germany, and I have seen it dubbed in German. I'm talking about The Ten Percent Solution when I say "I kind of understand why this episode wasn't shown in Germany". - I have seen Harry's Will (in English) and also have no idea why this episodes was skipped for dubbing.

comment What happened to Penny's pharmaceutical sales rep job?
The Cuck Lorre quote at the end is about Season 8, not 9 (it is from July 2014, after all). Penny making more money has been a story in e.g. The Expedition Approximation‌​ (8x06) and The Fortification Implementation (8x20). - I haven't started watching Season 9 yet, so I don't know if that continues.

comment Why cutting an 'X' into ammunition?
"... guarantees that the round will fragment upon striking the body..." one should be careful with such definite statements (especially if the source is a internet forum, whose posting members may or may not actually be "ammunition specialists"). - A similar question has been posted at our StackExchange sister site Skeptics.

comment The events leading up to the Indominus Rex's escape
To me this is a case of "Contrived Stupidity‌​". Right after the thermal scan comes up empty and Owen notices the scratch/claw marks, Claire rushes off while mentioning that the I-Rex has an implant in her back which she can track from the control room. Then it cuts to her in the car, calling the control room, telling them to get the coordinates of the I-Rex. - I see no reason why Claire couldn't have just called the control room right away, but then the I-Rex's escape plan wouldn't have worked.

comment Why so many British actors in American productions?
So your question is acutally "Why are british actors in american production?". You have named a few british actors, but that doesn't proof that there is a "phenomenon". One could make a list of actors from other nationalities as well, e.g. Australia, Canada, Mexiko,... - Why a certain actor was chosen for a certain role should be it's own question. One can't generalize.

The T-Rex at the end is in fact the one from the first movie (interview with the director).

comment Are those historical portrayal 100% or mostly real?
Back in those days, before there were phones and email, and when traveling wasn't as easy as today, scientists, like other people, wrote letters to stay in touch with friends, family and colleagues (and tell them stuff about their lives). - In case of Newton, there is e.g. The Newton Project, where they have a big collection of letters he wrote.

comment Are more movie stars acting in TV shows nowadays (and if so, why)?
@MasonWheeler - As I mentioned earlier, shooting 22 episodes will take about 9 months, so that would leave 3 months for other projects. But not all actors are willing to work the whole year through.

comment A very unlucky man followed by a reporter
This is either the french film La Chèvre, or its american remake Pure Luck. (it's been a long time since I've seen either of them, but I think the scene with the salt happens in both films). - There are trailers for both films on Youtube: La Chèvre, Pure Luck

comment Why didn't he get the power of Mjolnir?
Steve and Tony briefly talk about it at the end of the movie. They theorize that since the Vision is an A.I., a machine, maybe different rules apply ("If you put the hammer in an elevator... It would still go up.")

comment Did Hugo Weaving Copy Carl Sagan to play Agent Smith?
Hugo Weaving says he emulated a “50′s news reader. (maybe it's worth mentioning that Weaving is Australian/British, therefore he had to emulate an american accent)
