comment Top-billed actor with the least screen time
You beat me to it. Had to be Marlon Brando, I'm surprised that it was even 8 minutes... could have guessed it was about 4.

comment How much of a gravitational time dilation did the three planets in Interstellar experience?
A 30% increase in weight is a relatively minor difference. The planet would have a slightly larger mass than ours, but nothing significant as far as time dilation... they'd only lose a fraction of a second per year or so. I'm no physicist, so I can't do the math for you for that. However, the black hole probably had 10 or 20 solar masses (or more, can't remember if they said in the movie), and they were in close to it... it was responsible for the vast majority of any relativistic effects.

Too well-known to really use anymore? Please inform Hollywood.

comment Why did Homer, Moe and Wally cover their mouths when talking about the Super Bowl?
@fdisk The animation of the mouth wouldn't be radically different. It's a cartoon with cartoonish features, and they're not carefully drawing the shapes of the mouth to match real life vocalization. However, the timing for the syllables would differ, and the effect would still be jarring and noticeable.

comment Are there any movies having cryopreservation as the central plot?
The original question still asks for a movie title, not a long-winded and ill-conceived response about how such a movie would be impossible. There is no movie title, but there is an episode of a tv show. That's my answer.

@Catija And yet you people have voted up an answer to +3 that doesn't answer it at all... I gave the best answer possible, closer than most.

comment Why do people bleed in real world when they are hurt or killed in The Matrix?
We always see them bleeding from the mouth. They're biting their tongues from the shock/stress.

comment Did Jesse do the right thing when he betrayed Walt?
@underscore_d Walt never had good intentions for Jesse, maybe for no one. He used Jesse from the start to get his "in" to the drug world. Used Jesse for whatever little expertise needed to be gleened (not much). Used him as an assistant when he couldn't risk anyone else doing the dirty work. Any kindness was feigned, so morale was manageable. He used Jesse as a prop, so he could replay Gray Matter but not cheat the other guy as he was cheated. That's not kindness at all.

comment Origin of the quote “I suggest you rethink your strategy”
Thought this might be Toy Soldiers (1991), but I just grabbed the subtitle file and a text search didn't find the phrase.

comment How was the bear attack scene shot in 'The Revenant'?
I was hoping they fed Dicaprio to a bear. Shoot that scene last, of course.

comment Why aren't the zombies decomposed after all this time?
@Lettmannen No, no virus can account for this. Viruses are just snippets of DNA/RNA that cause cells to malfunction (and die). For a zombie to walk, it needs blood flowing through arteries to supply nutrients to muscle cells. That's far from the only problem. In 28 Days Later, those are just people made insane by a virus... they eventually starve and die. Actual zombies in other movies are dead. They "survive" in that state for years, able to move and predate, without any evidence of a biological process that could explain this.

comment Did Jesse do the right thing when he betrayed Walt?
@Pasta Walt is a monster still bitter after a perceived betrayal at Gray matter. He wants a "do over", one last chance to do something grand in his life, and he wants to be "better" than the people at Gray Matter. This means he needs someone to keep around and not-betray, to prove to himself that he's superior. That's why he has Jessie. Not because he loves him or feels fatherly. Walt kills Jessie's loved ones. Poisons children. Kills innocents. He is not a good person, he has no redeeming qualities.

comment Did Jesse do the right thing when he betrayed Walt?
Walt didn't love him like a son. Walt didn't love anyone, near as I can tell. Walt hurt people that Jessie cared for. He hurt small children that Jessie cared for. Walt's a monster.
