comment Identify Frozen Soundtrack
There are several pieces being played between those two scenes. You'll have to be more specific.

comment Where does anime get “Hey that's my line” from?
@KevinHowell - Yes I saw that sentence, but I'm still not seeing it as something that's prevalent in only Asian cinema (or any one medium). Like I said, I've seen it used all over the place.

I'm not entirely sure it's an anime thing. I've seen that trope being used all over the place.

comment How are Huey, Dewey, and Louie related to Scrooge?
@MrShibby - Wow! I haven't seen this in a loooong time! I've always loved how the triplets' dad's name is covered up.

comment Why hasn't Jason Statham been nominated for any awards?
I don't understand your logic here. You admit that Statham isn't as good as an actor as Bale and Eastwood, yet you still think he should get a nomination? For what?

comment Who was Lister's Grandmother?
The first two seasons have been mostly retconned. Not that internal consistency was ever a Red Dwarf thing.

comment Why doesn't Hollywood make movies related to epic stories like Mahabharata or Ramayana?
Hollywood isn't a single entity. And it's definitely not conscious.

comment Why are humans often used in movies irrelevant to the story?
@PeterRaeves - Sure they could do it without the humans, but it wouldn't be as powerful. Having a human dimension explains the existence of the LEGO universe and gives it purpose. Otherwise it would just be another movie riding on a franchise (like Smurfs for instance). And the only other toy that you can substitute LEGOs with are other brick systems, or the whole order vs. chaos motif is gone. The neat thing about the movie is that both the human world and the LEGO world explain and compliment each other. The LEGOs needed humans, just as the humans needed the LEGOs.

I'll have to object that the inclusion of humans in Lego Movie was irrelevant. The human side of the conflict was the story, and is what elevates this good movie into a brilliant one. Best one this year definitely.

comment What were Norma and Gloria doing in the season 2 finale?
@DrRDizzle - Another clue I suppose is the ingredients. I remember seeing eggs and dog hair. The way the concoction was delivered (blown in Vee's direction) is another clue. And I guess if Norma was desperate enough to try making cyanide from apple seeds then she'd be willing to try the supernatural.

comment Why such a complex plan to smuggle the poison to the Purple Wedding?
@YungHummmma - In the show, Littlefinger explains the necklace part to her later, and in the books she figures it out herself. In both cases she is now accessory to murder for the simple fact that the kangaroo court of Westeros would believe she purposely smuggled the poison in. Putting the poison crystal in the necklace allowed Littlefinger to make Sansa part of the conspiracy without her knowing it.

comment Why wasn't Arya left at the Eyrie?
@JohnSmithOptional - If he did ask who was in charge of the Vale they would've told him Littlefinger, who is under investigation for the murder of his wife. Besides, the Hound must have heard of Littlefinger's reputation and most certainly knows that it was he who betrayed Arya's father to the Lannisters.

comment Why wasn't Arya left at the Eyrie?
@JohnSmithOptional - Well Robin Arryn is just a kid, and Littlefinger is Littlefinger. The Hound isn't exactly known for his political finesse. He probably just saw a ready to take golden moment blow away, and didn't bother to look for another one.

comment What is the relationship between Daenerys, Viserys, and dragons?
@BobbyAlexander - Well dragons themselves might not be a technological edge, but training them might count. But that's just arguing over semantics :)

Looks fine to me. Good question BTW

The Leon/Mathilda dynamic is equal parts touching and disturbing. Amazing movie. Luc Besson at his best.

comment Why were the 90's considered cynical in the US when most Hollywood output I remember seemed optimistic?
As a kid who lived through both the 80's and the 90's, the only negativity that I can attribute to the 90's is in the music scene. 80's music was all about being over the top outrageous, 90's music was a backlash to that runaway optimism I think. But I can't recall seeing that in other media. Being edgy was a 90's thing, but that's different than cynicism I think.

comment In Top Gear specials, why do the hosts hang on to the inconvenient gifts?
You have to remember that Top Gear is a comedy program that happens to be about cars, not the other way around :)
