comment Help identifying quirky 80s/90s movie - road trip, post-apocalypse, comedy-ish?
Damnation Alley was not a comedy. People laughed at it - sure, but not because they were meant to.

@SystemDown - Prince, then King - who would dare to NOT call him handsome?

comment Showtime series “The Tudors” casting question
Mostly because people enjoy watching "pretty" people better. A Henry VIII -ish actor would have discouraged viewership.

comment what are the sitcoms which are similar to friends?
Off the top of my head, "Coupling", "Happy Endings", "Weird Loners", "New Girl", and dozens of others.

comment A movie about a teen who witnesses strange behavior from his neighbor
@Walt - actually, only 2 of 4 Disturbia-related questions here are IDs. The others question plot elements.

comment The Anti-Christ in the Name of the Rose Movie
@TomCody - The movie is a giant flashback, as is the book it is based upon. Adso is the elderly (deathbed?) narrator, telling of this case while he was the young initiate companion of Sean Connery.

I can't really help much, except to point you to a list of movies on this theme

If you visit Filming Locations on imdb.com NYC is NOT listed, not once.

I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because This seems to be a better fit at the stackexchange for Video Production

comment Haunted hotel movie?
Inaccurate. The hotel could not have been The Overlook. It was not burned down. Danny and Wendy escaped in the snowcat in the night. The final scene shows Jack frozen solid in the snow the next day, and a pan through the still-standing hotel to the party group picture.

comment Why is Hugh Jackman not going to continue to portray Wolverine?
He wouldn't be the first to be called "back for one more" where the money was right. Plenty of time to have a change of heart, no matter how determined he sounds now.

comment Lady in the Lake 1947 (Mirror Scene)
What was tricky about this shot? It is clearly filmed from an oblique angle - you nearly see the woman's full back, most of which would be obscured if shot nearly full front-on as you suggest. THAT shot would require a trick to eliminate the trace of camera.

And he kind of got his Hitler jokes in during the musical play "Springtime for Hitler" in the Producers.

comment Why doesn't Wayward Pines wait a more couple of thousands of years?
He intended Reggie to be stored as punishment, and permanent, without design to re-emerge. He could as well have put him in a barrel. There is no tube-worthiness-guarantee to be inferred there.

comment Why doesn't Wayward Pines wait a more couple of thousands of years?
Personally, I think if society has devolved this dramatically in 2000 years, it is on a clear downward slide, and Pilcher probably believes so too. Nothing outside has proved to have even the potential for a rise in evolution. He could have to leapfrog potentially into forever in hops of 2000 years. I'm not sure the cryogenic tubes he has are made for repeated, or incremental usage. I don't think the show has said whether they are one usage tubes and fully consumed in the process.

comment Movie with a guy in a perfect “virtual reality” world
Inaccurate. In Brainstorm, the device was actually traumatic, and forced the user into a psychotic state. As such, it was intended to be usurped as a weapon by the army/air force? It is only because Christopher Walken was able to withstand the effects, that the machine is destroyed from within.

comment Time taken assembling the meth cooking unit and again dismembering it in Breaking Bad
I second @hegemon - for the non-meth-professional-viewer, such intricacies are tedious. Plus, who wants to be the TV producer that exports such technical knowledge about breaking the law, to the world at large?

comment Have any online-exclusive series won an Emmy?
Sorry I didn't make that clear. Additionally, the full roster per year is one click removed from this same page. It contains all the additional awards. I hate having become an instrument in a "search the easy stuff" resolution.
