comment Why do remakes need permission whereas spoofs/parodies don't?
It's a loophole used by electronic boardgames makers. "Scrabble" is copyrighted, but the idea of a game where you score with lettered tiles isn't. Thus you have the plethora of Scrabble clones.

In other words, you can copy an idea but you can't copy a character.

comment Girl in wheelchair living in castle-like house
Sounds a bit like an adaptation of Johanna Spyrie's Heidi. But without knowing a time frame it's hard to guess which one as it had several movies and a few animated ones.

comment 80s sci-fi movie with “tank men”?
I would not want to be the actor wearing those tank tread pants. They look uncomfortable as hell. That scene where the mandroid goes down the stairs had me cringing in emphatic pain.

comment Why does Louis give the interview?
It's been a while since I've read the book, but I don't recall if he ever expanded on how he picks his victims. But I remember him making peace with the fact that he's a vampire in latter books.

comment Why does Louis give the interview?
Louis refused for a while to feed on humans, sustaining himself on rats and animals. He returns to feeding on humans after Claudia is "born", and even tells her that he no longer recommends feeding on rats.

comment Is there a specific style or genre name for Jackie Chan's movies?
As well as the Buster Keaton influence, Jackie's choreography is heavily influenced by Chinese Opera: a very theatrical form of martial arts that is traditionally performed for live audiences, which Jackie has trained in before he went to the movies. In Chinese Opera the emphasis in on visually striking feats of martial arts, so you see a lot of poses in between strikes.

@BenPlont - Neither did I, until I started researching this. Looks quite good actually. I might have to hunt it down.

comment An animated film about assassinating Kim Jong-il
A lot of people these days mistake stop motion animation for CG. I'm pretty certain you're correct.

comment 1980-90 Cartoon with rainbows and bears in the ending that had a very beautiful catchy song?
Is "it has bears and rainbows" the only thing you remember about it? What did the bears look like? What was the story all about? etc

Here's the movie @Walt suggested on YouTube. One of my favorites growing up. Kid was definitely my hero for a while :D

comment Was Moira Queen's knowledge about Arrow's identity foreshadowed earlier?
I've always thought that revelation was handled very clumsily. I certainly can't think of any foreshadowing happening.

comment What are the implications of Emmet's autonomous movement?
@NapoleonWilson - Well if you remember that the scene the basically triggers the redemption scene for The Man Upstairs is him opening up the President Business' "ship" and finding him and Emmet already going through their own redemption sequence.
