comment What did Bill do to make Hanzo mad?
It may well be that Hanzo knows of what he did to Beatrix, and felt it only right to help her get revenge. Many movies of this kind deal with honour and balance.

comment Horror movie set in a UK forest
This sounds like Wrong Turn, but there were four movies, three of which were in the 2000s, and I can't remember which of them matches your description. I'd lean towards the third, because I remember some conversation about boobs near the start.

comment Why does Abe want to stop the originals from building the box?
I'm not 100% on it, but I'm relatively sure that Abe is trying to say that preventing the creation of the initial box would destroy all causal sequences after that and bring everything back to how it was before. If the originals never build a box, the causal links that resulted in the 3rd Aaron existing would be broken.

comment Axe-murdering ghost mother in a cabin
Do you remember anything else that could help identify the movie? The details you gave are quite vague. Rough idea of the year or decade? High-budget, low-budget, B-movie? American, British, other?

comment What happens to unaired or one time only aired pilots?
I should imagine that the rights, like with any other show, are divined based upon the contracts signed by those involved. I doubt that there is any one answer.

comment Gays at classical music concert, then listen to hi-fi
@JohnP I imagine it's implied by the scene, e.g. their body language, positioning on the sofa, choice of music - something romantic, perhaps.

revised Did Trevor Reznik really go to the amusement park?
Adding the one spoiler back in - probably removed by mistake.

comment Movie about a toy factory and war toys?
@AidanO Admittedly I haven't seen the movie in years, but I remember him getting the military chips (not ex-military) because he was concerned that the toys wouldn't be considered engaging enough. The setup to the whole idea was that they were manufacturing educational toys, which the execs didn't like because they didn't sell, so they built toy soldiers instead. One of the two developers approached the change in concept a little too overzealously and ordered the military "learning" chips, which later led to the "...OH!" scene between them.

comment Why do movies & TV use this police radio clip over and over?
The one that drives me mad is the sound of the fire engine's horn - one long tone, then two short ones. It's been used in so many movies (incl. all the Die Hards) that it really breaks the immersion for me.

comment Ending of Donnie Darko
From what I remember, he sends it back indirectly by making the choice to get out of bed. The whole movie's plot is essentially a loop of two intertwined parallel timelines. In the main plot, Frank appears and Donnie leaves his bed, avoiding being crushed by the falling engine. This means his mother makes her trip as planned, onto the plane whose engine falls off, ultimately killing her. In the second timeline, Donnie stays in bed, and is killed by the engine, resulting in his mother cancelling her trip, altering the timeline so that the plane never crashes. It's a bizarre paradox.

comment What is the real reason for the Joker's scars?
To expand on his identity as the chaotic antagonist a little further, in relation to the title question, it may well be that the Joker gave himself the scars just because he could. There's no reason that his appetite for destruction and chaos should be limited to external entities - as Arthur says, "some men just want to watch the world burn".

comment Why do Disney parents usually die?
Just a quick reminder to never trust anything written in the Daily Mail. It's a tabloid newspaper known for fabrications, political bias, and other questionable journalism.

comment Significance of the painting in Mallory's office
Interesting. I spotted the painting when I saw it at the cinema, and thought they'd goofed and re-used the prop. When I watch it back now, it clearly is a different painting.
