comment I've never seen a James Bond movie, where should I start?
IMHO, almost every Bond film can be seen as the 'first' film without needing too much backstory. The only film that would confuse someone watching that film as their first Bond film would be Quantum Of Solace, as that film really is a direct sequel to Casino Royale. In every other Bond film where they reference something from an earlier film (like Diamonds Are Forever or the beginning of For Your Eyes Only), there's usually a brief explanation that would catch the viewer up with the rest of us. Though it's not my favorite, I'd vote for OHMSS - a good film that has elements referenced later.

comment Why blame Batman for the crimes commited by Harvey Dent?
@Cool_Coder, think about all the investigative journalism - both legit and not-so-legit - that we have in 'our' world. If someone wanted to start investigating Harvey Dent, they could have found someone who would have corroborated evidence against him, or found some of his fingerprints on Maroni's car... something, that would have linked him to the various murders. I think in general the Gotham press gave Harvey a pass because of the good he did and the fact that Batman can be used as a scapegoat. If Batman doesn't take the fall, Harvey eventually would have.

comment Why didn't Magnussen's bodyguards search Sherlock and Watson for weapons?
@Oliver_C John wouldn't have wanted to go to jail for the rest of his life and leave Mary and his baby without a husband and father. Sherlock had no such worries.

comment Why are some movies still shot in black and white or sepia?
One other film that was shot in B&W was my favorite film "Some Like It Hot". Allegedly, the reason this was done was because when Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis had their makeup on, it came off with a greenish hue when shot in color, so it was decided to switch to B&W.

comment Why does James Bond use his real name?
I think one thing you also have to keep in mind with this question is that Silva was a made-up name on purpose. Silva wanted to break away from MI6 and go underground, so any mention of his real name would likely have tripped some tracking program (think NSA). So he made up the name Silva, and it was only when Silva was brought in to MI6 that they knew who he was. They just likely kept referring to him as 'Silva' since that was the name most people who even had a passing idea of the case would have heard.

comment Why can the Doctor not read River's Diary?
River also commonly uses the term "Spoilers" to warn The Doctor about asking stuff that will happen to him in his future.

comment What is the term called for the sudden blackout before the suspense scene?
I'm not sure there is a name for that sort of thing - I think it's just something that directors or screenwriters add by themselves. I recall a film Zero Effect where the some scenes kind of faded to black/white, then back a second later as if it were a cut - which, I suppose, it technically was...
