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 Why are there such big gaps between Sherlock seasons?

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 something with nim or mim
My guess: The Last Mimzy (2007)
comment Was there any further relevance to the triceratops' desease?
The cause for the sickness is explained in a deleted scene and it's the same as in the novel.
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.
comment What happened to the dinosaurs from Jurassic Park?
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)
comment Scientist who says where Dr Manhattan is in Watchmen - actor name?
Looks like Alessandro Juliani - He had a recurring role on Smallville, and currently on The 100.
comment Looking for movie based in early 20th century
The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen
comment “I find her interesting because…she sleeps above her covers…”
Venkman says this as a response to Ray calling Dana his "girlfriend". - Ray: "Your girlfriend lives in the corner penthouse of Spook Central." Venkman: "She's not my girlfriend. I find her interesting because she's a client and because she sleeps above her covers, four feet above her covers. She barks, she drools, she claws!" - I always understood the joke as Venkman naming (ridiculous) non-sexual reasons why he is interested in her.
comment What are the details of the recent agreement between Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios?
Even though the official press release says Sony Pictures will [...] have final creative control of the Spider-Man films I'd say one has to wait and see what that actually means. With Spider-Man becoming part of the MCU Marvel will certainly not give Sony the free means to fuck up their universe, especially since they are exploring opportunities to integrate characters from the MCU into future Spider-Man films.
comment In Suits, why doesn't Mike Ross just get a law degree?
This was discussed, e.g. in the season 3 episode Heartburn.
comment When did Raj start talking around women without alcohol?
Raj was 'cured' in the season 6 finale: The Bon Voyage Reaction.
comment Explanation for all beings to be able to speak English?
To quote director James Gunn: Peter Quill, if you look at his back, he has a translator device in his neck. That's how he understands everybody, how he's speaking alien languages.
comment Where does Guardians of the Galaxy fit into the MCU timeline?
P.S.: Why was Ronan/Thanos not interested in the other Infinity Stone in possession of The Collector?
