comment Is there any reason why mostly technology deprived planets are pictured in the Star Wars movies?
If Star Wars is supposed to be a western, why does it borrow so much more heavily from swords-and-sorcery storytelling tropes than western ones? We've got wizards and knights, mysterious hermits and evil kings all over, but I can't really identify a single character who is obviously The Sheriff or The Drifter, for example...

Wondering why this got downvoted, as it contains a definitive answer with reliable sources.

comment Movie where a woman paints portraits of a man she sees in her dreams
Saw this movie back when it came out, would not recommend. Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore were a lot better together in The Wedding Singer.

Is there a non-tiny version of that comic image available where the words are legible?

@GroundZero The recent TV incarnation of The Flash has the same "problem".

While they have never actually used the word "magic" in the movie universe, this is (hopefully) about to change. ;)

comment What does Mr Bean have against the three-wheeled car?
Interesting about them being dangerous. Immediately makes me think of the Elio. Anyone knowledgeable enough to compare the two?

comment Why does the building explode at the start of Spectre?
Yes, the I in IED stands for "improvised", as in "cobbled together out of household chemicals by low-level terrorists," so that's not particularly surprising. You'd expect better from an organization of SPECTRE's caliber, though.

comment Why does the building explode at the start of Spectre?
Ah yes, the good old "high explosives are volatile" cliche. In the real world, this is not true; anyone who builds an explosive device that's capable of being accidentally detonated through impact or high heat really deserves what's coming to them.

comment Why does the TET want the water on earth when there is plenty of other water in the solar system?
Having it in liquid form is actually a disadvantage considering that they're transporting it. (What's easier to move around: 10 pounds of water or 10 pounds of ice?) Also, if you need it in liquid form when you're done, gathering it in solid form at the beginning is a very good idea, considering that dealing with heat buildup is one of the biggest challenges faced by spacecraft; you can use your waste heat to melt the water.

comment Was Star Wars (intended to be) a children's movie franchise?
Wait, wait... who didn't like Yoda? He's one of the most beloved characters of the entire franchise.
