comment Was “Democratic Republic of China” a mistake, or deliberate?
I think it was added in for the hilarity of having Su-Lee struggle with all the R's.

comment Married couple roleplays in movie scenes
"role play in a number of different movie scenes"? Are the characters acting in movies, or acting out scenes in famous movies?

Wow! Not the OP but I've been looking for that one since forever. Have a +1 :)

comment What are considered the major film genres?
"Genre" is such a nebulous term that I don't see this question being answered objectively. So I'm voting to close.

comment Vito and Luca question
It wasn't that Luca was "slow". Luca was, as Michael put it, "a very scary man". He was very violent and ruthless and (in the book) single handedly ended two gang wars in favor of the Corleones. Yet his unsavory reputation necessitated that he and Vito are never seen in public. Him having to rehearse his lines (and flubbing them) was a stroke of genius by Coppola, where he turned a nervous actor messing up his lines into Luca being nervous since he never expected to be invited to the wedding. Vito was nervous because he wasn't sure what the savage Luca would ask for.

That was a damn creepy episode. I hate ventriloquist dummies to this day thanks to it.

comment What does Francis Underwood's ring mean to him and why does he bury it?
Nice observation! But how does Frank getting a new ring for his presidency jive with all this?

comment How Did the Children of the Corn Manage For So Long?
Child labor laws (in the US at least) have exceptions that allow kids to work in their family's farm.

comment Why do the pirates have white teeth?
For the same reason people wear new, clean, machine tailored clothing in the post-apocalyptic Revolution TV series: for the benefit of dumb TV viewers who want to see beautiful people in beautiful clothes all the time.

I've always loved how they did that in Hunt for Red October. Such an elegant device!

comment S04E08 (Hermanos): Why is Gus allowed to live?
@BCdotNET Now there's an idea! I was planing on giving Better Call Saul a pass, but now I think you've changed my mind. Call AMC and collect your check ;)

comment How much is Claire Underwood aware of her husband's more serious deeds?
I agree with @NapoleonWilson. Frank and Claire's relationship might be complicated, but it is far from superficial. There are several incidents that hint at this interesting dynamic: Frank feeling lost without Claire when she goes on a tryst, Claire's conversation with Frank's ex-bodyguard, the infamous menage-a-trois ... etc.

comment Is this laser experiment shown on Big Bang Theory possible?
I don't think the question was "is this experiment possible?", which you have answered. It was more like "is doing this experiment possible conducted from the roof of a building with such a simple setup?"

Animated or live action? It would also help if you can tell us when and where you watched it, and in what language.

@WillFeldman probably has it! You should make your comment an answer so it can be upvoted accordingly.

comment Says “bada bing” while killing mob boss, betrayed by lover
@AlasdairCM - "bada-bing" is a common phrase among movie mobsters. Apparently it originated with James Caan's Sonny Corleone.
