comment Why did Jules have to give Ringo $1,500?
Essentially, yes. And Jules doesn't want to kill any more.

comment A TV series which was totally written before filming began
If reports are to be believed, there are 50 finished scripts for the unmade Star Wars TV show (Underworld) sitting on a shelf somewhere.

Another good point!

Good point, Oliver. Perhaps they are thinking of tying the show into Age of Ultron...

comment What is the budget of a typical modern B-movie?
Brown Bunny - art film Primer - sci fi Alone with Her - thriller But there I go, forcing my own labels onto them... hence the ambiguity :)

comment What is the budget of a typical modern B-movie?
In answer to the other question, no, I wouldn't consider Insidious 2 a B-movie. It is really well-crafted and there is no sign of any tongues in cheeks ;)

comment What does Gary King become in the end? Why team up with blanks?
I would argue that it is more like a Mad Max post-apocalyptic film now, but then again that could be called a Western too :) I think he picked the blanks because they reminded him of his old group, and as for 'graduating', you'll note that he orders water when he goes into the bar - as Andy noted earlier (I'm paraphrasing here) 'it takes a real man to order water in a bar full of thugs'.

comment Do the pub names and their order mean anything?
Terrific answer - thanks for the research. I added the images which I believe makes this a fully rounded and complete answer. It's also worth noting a couple of extra things... The Cross Hands seems to depict the bathroom floor behind the ink/blood spattered arms of the friends. Nice touch ;) Is it just me, or does the Trusty Servant look a little bit like O-Man? It's worth noting just how much the King's Head sign looks like Gary :) Love this film - it's Wright's 'Grail Quest' film - look at the characters' names: King, Prince, Chamberlain, Knightly, Page...

Also, Star Trek Into Darkness was shot on film and presented as 3D.

comment Has it been officially announced that Star Wars Ep VII will be in 3D?
Yes, there will be lots of CGI, but there will also be lots of practical effects. Don't forget that The Phantom Menace (which everyone derides) actually uses more practical and model (along with CG) shots than the entire first trilogy put together.

True - I looked at my answer and think the quotes could be improved. I'll get on it when I have more time (unless somebody wants to edit it for me ;))
