comment Why did Mrs Robinson ask Benjamin not to take Elaine out in The Graduate?
She considered Ben good enough for a cheap fling, but not good enough for her daughter.

comment Why was the surgery pod configured only for men in Prometheus?
For the record, you can't "abort" something that will continue to live outside of the body. At that point you're just inducing labour. Speaking of which, if the filmmakers did want Shaw to eject an alien creature from her vagina, but were afraid that the word "abortion" might upset people(!), Shaw could have simply asked for the machine to "induce labour". Good gravy. How did this answer get 10 upvotes???

comment Why was the surgery pod configured only for men in Prometheus?
You cannot be serious. It was a clue that Peter Weyland was onboard. The machine was configured for him alone, which is why Vickers refuses to answer questions about such a sophisticated piece of machinery being onboard. Secondly, why on God's green Earth would Shaw have wanted an abortion??? Do you honestly think ejecting an alien creature through her vagina would have been the preferred method for ejecting an alien from her body??? She asks for a Cesarean in the movie because that's the quickest and easiest way for her to ask the machine to remove a foreign body from her abdomen.

comment Why was plot of Mars replaced in Total Recall (2012)?
I love how Len Weisman describes a short-story, barely 15 pages in length, as a "book". What rubbish!

It's not a novel, it's barely 20 pages!

comment Is Ra's Al Ghul alive or dead?
Ra's Al Ghul lives on through his daughter. Bruce's mind was quite prescient when it imagined him saying, "there are many forms of immortality"!

@MaryJoFinch Nice comment, but you're quite wrong that Jackson followed the 1933 version "scene-by-scene". He was certainly in love with the original, but that didn't stop him from adding things and making changes. I believe he even shot a jokey answer to this question, but I can't find it now :-/

Each of the students have their own grievances with Dr. Jones, so he says he'll see them one at a time. If you watch the scene closely, the two girls he first sees are extremely annoyed with him. He acknowledges their frustrated looks, and then promises to see everyone in order.
