comment Why is Bob's name called four times in Project Mayhem?
@TamásJuhász It always helps to back up your theory with facts. :)

comment In Fight Club, when Ed Norton first confronts Marla, why doesn't he tell her about his insomnia?
Side note: the doctor doesn't refer him to support groups in lieu of medication to help with his insomnia. Jack claims that he's "really hurting" so the doctor sarcastically tells him where he can meet people who are really hurting. In effect, "You're not hurting and you don't need meds. Go chew some valerian root and stop bugging me."

comment How do you explain the car crash scene in Fight Club?
All the CCTV images show only the Narrator. In that particular case it shows Edward Norton pushing himself along with his feet while holding his own collar.

comment What changes if 'Kathryn Railly' is insane?
No other characters see/react to Tyler Durden, so he is the only thing in the movie that is part of the Narrator's delusion. If Dr. Railly is delusional--with all the police, doctors, and other characters interacting with Cole--the entire movie becomes a delusion, and we're left with nothing real.

comment What does the smile in Railley lips signify?
What a beautiful and poetic answer. +1 doesn't do it justice, but it'll have to do.

comment Time and Space Travel?
Even when they did send him to the correct time and place (Philadelphia and Baltimore), he appeared above ground and in different locations. So clearly space travel is required even if you assume it automatically adjusts for Earth's continuous motion through space.

comment What changes if 'Kathryn Railly' is insane?
If everything that happens in the movie is a delusion created by Kathryn Railly's mind, there's no need for the movie. Delusional people are delusional. Not a very compelling plot. Also, ridiculous things are allowed to happen in fictional movies.

comment Explanation for Lenny's “I've done it” tattoo
I had forgotten about those flashes with his wife and the tattoo. Given that the previous flashbacks were in black & white, he doesn't have that tattoo in any other part of the movie--many of which happen later in real time--and that he sees that vision while closing his eyes, I think he's imagining it--not remembering.

comment Why does Aaron Cross lie about being out of medication?
I didn't see anything about him being punished. It seemed very much like he was on a final training exercise. You even see Jason Bourne's name (along with many others) etched into the bunk bed, and he was the perfect soldier until he lost his memory.

comment Who hired Malcolm Crowe?
The dead are drawn to Cole and Vincent in the unconscious hope that the seers can help them. They don't know they are drawn, nor why, nor that they are even dead. I think Kyralessa hit the nail on the head when bringing up dreaming. You're walking down that street and suddenly you're on a train with a friend, and it seems perfectly natural. So much so that you don't even question whether it's natural or not. Granted, Malcolm appeared much more rational than the other dead, probably as a plot device so the audience wouldn't suspect it.

comment How does Gibbs get his boats out of his basement?
I supposed he could chop it up before burning it to avoid a house fire. Now that would be cathartic!

comment In Star Trek Into Darkness who was the saboteur?
@MathewFoscarini - As I said, but my point is that since they were fully functional with a complete stasis chamber inside, why not originally design them to be much smaller? What superfluous circuitry and mechanics were removed to make room, and why was it included in the first place if it wasn't essential for the torpedo to function?

comment 24 - Trying to remember a specific character that Jack Bauer tortured
That was in a hotel IIRC--definitely not at CTU--and in the presence of his ex-wife, now Jack's girlfriend. Also, Paul wasn't killed during that scene.

comment Did McGee and Abby ever get into a relationship?
Dating for half a season is a relationship! Just because you don't tell friends that you're going steady or bumping uglies doesn't make it any less real.

comment 24 - Trying to remember a specific character that Jack Bauer tortured
I don't recall that scene/antagonist, sorry, but my favorite interrogation is when Jack "tortures" a guy with a popsicle by showing him a lit blow torch first and then running the frozen treat along his abdomen out of view.

comment In Star Trek Into Darkness who was the saboteur?
BTW, the torpedoes were indeed live weapons, though it's unclear how that's possible given their "modifications."

comment In Star Trek Into Darkness who was the saboteur?
@Liath - It was pretty clear that Marcus had arranged the sabotage from the exchange between Marcus and Kirk when they faced off at the edge of the neutral zone, but like Keen I don't recall any scene which showed specifically who specifically caused it or how.

comment Why could the warg riding orcs attack in daylight?
Warg riders also attacked during the flight to Helm's Deep in LotR:TTT.

comment Is there more to Gandalf and Galadriel's relationship than is hinted at in The Hobbit?
@user4420 - While I wasn't aware that Gandalf wore one of the three Elvish rings, Galadriel introduces Frodo to Nenya (4:18) in the extended LotR:FotR when he offers the one ring to her. That's one of my favorite scenes of all the movies.

comment Are real guns used in movies?
@poepje - Minor correction: according to the Wikipedia article on Lee's death, the gun was loaded with a blank. However, a bullet had become lodged in the barrel when someone accidentally fired an improperly prepared dummy cartridge in a previous gun close up scene, and the powder in the blank was enough to fire the bullet.
