comment Was this scene an homage to Hellboy?
Right - which in my opinion does not make this a valid answer.

comment What was kaiju blue?
It also appeared to be highly corrosive, only able to be handled following treatment with ammonia.

comment Was this scene an homage to Hellboy?
That said, the original question isn't asking for the inspiration for the film - rather, Dforck is considering the fact that Ron Pearlman's character was swallowed by a large, tenticled beastie in both PacRim and the first Hellboy movie.

comment Where does Dr. Lecter originally get the metal pin that he uses to pick the lock on his handcuffs in the museum?
The main body of your question appears to be your own answer.

comment Why do most of the WWII movies show Nazi soldiers as well-clothed?
Yep, plus, being movies, the emphasis is on the visual storytelling, so dressing your 'heroes' as underdogs adds much more gravitas to their efforts.

comment Why did the aliens let a 50 year old ship into the Mothership?
You're right! I revoke my nerd card.

comment What is the most expensive scene ever shot?
Yep - this one might be a little too fluid for the site. The I am Legend scene did cost 5M, but there was CG involved, the Swordfish 'flying bus' scene cost 13M and was practical as far as I can see, however, the 13 minute fight scene in Matrix: Reloaded cost 40M alone (pretty much all CG). That said, I doubt even the Swordfish stuff wasn't digitally enhanced.

comment Why does Anakin/Luke's Lightsaber change colour?
Anakin's lightsaber has been sitting in Ben's dusty hope chest for 20+ years. Its battery is a bit flat.

comment Similarities of Pixar and Dreamworks: any published explanation?
Wasn't Robots made by Blue Sky - therefore released by 20th C Fox?

comment How did John McClane escape his bonds?
Cool - so it wasn't just a combination of the terrible shaky-cam and and my advanced years then.

I like your #2 reason and now regret my response to Dan in the comments. Damn you, interwebs, you win this day.

Just to be a professional Star Wars nerd and nit-picker, the shuttle wouldn't have been allowed through if Vader hadn't sensed that Luke was on board. :)

A deleted scene explains how we got all our computer tech from the original crashed ship - this is why their Mac is compatible. Not trying to defend it or anything though... :)
