comment Why is Stanley Kubrick classed as one of the greatest directors?
Oh and for "Barry Lyndon" he wanted to shoot using only candle-light, something nobody had ever done before - so he talked NASA into loaning him some of the fastest lenses ever made that they use in space - attention.to.detail :)

comment Duration of day and night on Pandora
Inherently it can't be random, in fact it's day/night-cycle would be incredibly precise and predictable, just not as metronomic as Earths.

comment Why is Daredevil 2015 so brutal?
Not sure what HBO has to do with this (?) but I work for one of NetFlix's competitors and speak with their staff surprisingly frequently and heard it from their mouths that they consciously wanted to make an adult-oriented superhero show.

comment What happened during the deleted scenes in Kingsman: The Secret Service?
Can I recommend the comic book, it's no better or worse than the film but it does have a different take on some key aspects of the story that I think you may like.

comment How were the scenes with Gazelle shot?
You're exactly right - they used green stockings with reflective dots to allow for post dimensioning to help with the animation plus also used computer controller cameras so that they could get a matching 'background-only' plate as the metal lets were inherently thinner than the actresses.

comment Explain the season one climax (technical) of Silicon Valley
More importantly of course they'd really nailed the math/maths behind the 'whole room jerk-off' thing :)

comment Why does Arrow have so much Microsoft product placement?
Just a very small note: somehow the film "Sex Tape", which contains an ungodly amount of Apple products/services WASN'T sponsored by Apple in any way, I just don't understand that, it was offensively bad.

comment How did they create The Shadow's disguise?
Titanic did facial substitution in 1997, the bit where there's running through corridors with water chasing them.

comment Actor appearing in ITV (Uk tv) 118-118 ident
No idea who it is sorry but I just thought you might be interested to know that those shorts before and after the advertisement window are technically called 'Interstitials' but are referred to as 'Bumpers' by most in the industry.

comment Did Rose die at the end of Titanic, or was she dreaming?
I can recall reading that script on a London tube in the mid-90's and when it gets to the end pages being borderline tearful - so I knew how powerful the finished film would be.

comment The 'same landscape shot' conundrum
@DavidHarkness I think it was just an editing error myself, two editors dipping into the same 'bin' - just wondered if anyone had their own thoughts

comment The 'same landscape shot' conundrum
@shane, I do have very good visual memory, maybe not photographic but I was paying particular attention as I'm very interested in Iceland and have visited many times - so was looking out for footage, when the second shot appeared I immediately thought 'oh they're the same planet' and expected it to be addressed in the film, in fact it was the thing I was thinking about the most throughout - so it's not that I've got a super memory particularly, it just leapt out at me and thus I consciously kept it in mind as an unanswered question.

comment Why is James Bond less tech savvy in the Daniel Craig movies?
I know there is a real one but the one on the movie had was huge, had multiple floors, could be driven around/through and wasn't destroyed by a huge space laser that could blow up land.

comment What is the relationship between the three intertwined stories of The Fountain?
Agreed, I have the book/comic and just took another look, I'm pretty sure it's the 'spirits' of these two people that are locked together through time not their actual bodies.
