Nice answer - thanks. I'll see what else gets written before committing to a super check mark ;)

comment Did George Lucas try to acquire the rights to 'The Lord Of The Rings' / 'The Hobbit'?
Good point, Oliver. That said, these guys know everything there is to know about George and the company, so I'll trust I'll their judgement. But you are correct, this isn't conclusive.

comment Did George Lucas try to acquire the rights to 'The Lord Of The Rings' / 'The Hobbit'?
Just as an aside, I asked this question on Facebook to a couple of friends of mine who are fairly high up in the Lucasfilm ranks, and they claimed that this rumor isn't true. Lucas certainly saw Tolkien's work as an influence, but he didn't actively seek to acquire the rights.

comment Are there any plans to make a sequel to the film Evolution (2001)
Doubtful there would ever be a sequel to it as it performed so badly. However, there was a short-lived animated show on Fox Kids based on the film. Another Ghostbusters similarity?

comment Was Frodo Baggins in the original version of The Hobbit?
I'm trying to keep this reply spoiler-free, but 'yes' to your first sentence.

comment What is Bruce's alibi in the end?
I just meant the choice of lens and post-production color timing et al to make the shot seem more 'dreamy'. 'Heavily filtered' was probably a poor choice of phrase.

comment Water as a symbol in Fatal Attraction
Water is traditionally used as a metaphor for rebirth - not particularly relevant in Fatal Attraction though. BTW - did you know the film was based on Madam Butterfly? The international version was different from the US release, which made Alex more of a monster, less of a victim.

comment Why was the movie 'Elephant' given that title?
I removed the down vote as this is a pretty interesting question - however, as it is pointed out, your answer was indeed available in the link you supplied, so a little more digging wouldn't have hurt.

comment Is the 2008 version of The Incredible Hulk meant to be a spiritual sequel to the 2003 version?
Although they totally changed the origin story for Incredible Hulk, making it more in line with the TV show than Lee's version.

Good point about Bruce's own aborted branding.

comment What kind of Replicant is Deckard?
I like to think that too - so do you not subscribe to the 'official' take by Sir Ridders that he is a replicant, hinted at by the inclusion of the unicorn dream?

comment Fox's analysis of the Bat
This totally reminds me of how fans of the 'Alien' series were creating their own versions of events in Prometheus to justify scenes that didn't make sense in that film.

Just throwing it out there :)

comment Fox's analysis of the Bat
That's a good point - which leads us to assume that there were two Bats, which then leads us to assume that Wayne fixed the auto-pilot in BOTH of them for some reason, and which also lends credence to the suggestion that Batman somehow switched bats before the bomb was taken out into the bay, and therefore that shot of him in the cockpit before the explosion was actually of him in the other Bat. It's all a huge cop out IMO.

comment Why didn't the fog enter the supermarket in The Mist?
That's a good question!

comment Does Christopher Nolan's Batman have an overarching theme?
OK - that would cover WHAT are the films about. I asked WHO. I totally understand treating Gotham as a 'character', but to be honest I just found the city to be a plot device for each film, imperiled and saved 3 times.
