comment In Swordfish, did they really fly a bus underneath a helicopter in downtown LA?
@JohnnyBones I don't think they flew a bus into a building either -- that was done using a crane, as in the photo I included in my question. But apparently everything else was real, except for the landing on the rooftop which was filmed on a backlot as you suggest -- see my answer below.

comment Why was there no narration in The Hunger Games?
@Catija I agree, but I think it especially applies to movies, since narration (whether as a voice over, or exposition by an actor) usually drags things down.

comment Is the BB-8 robot in the new Star Wars movie and in this presentation the same exact robot?
The one in the GIF, although it looks the same as the one on stage, seems like it is CGI and not a practical robot, mostly because of the bouncing head.

comment How to find out whether a reality show is scripted
I'm going to disagree that every reality TV show is scripted. My family was on an episode of Sell This House on A&E about ten years ago. We were never told what to say. Things just happened and they filmed it. They shot about 18 hours of video over three days, that was edited down to 22 minutes. The format apparently was successfully; the series ran nine seasons. Our episode was rerun several times over a period of a couple of years. (And just from that one episode, we would occasionally get recognized on the street, "Hey weren't you on...")
