comment Is it important to Johnny Depp that he win a best-actor Oscar?
I've added the notice to this, because clearly the answer is likely to be 'yes' - but to be useful, an answer would really have to contain citations, such as quotes from interviews.

comment Why is scary makeup allowed in PG-13 movies?
To ask it the other way around, why should the MPAA or other clarification/censorship agencies have any sway over my decision about whether my child is old / mature enough to see scary makeup or brief nudity (from your other question). Making it more restrictive than it currently is removes all my freedom to judge things for myself as a parent. I wanted to make this comment to show how 'opinions-based' any such process is. I like how the MPAA (or other agencies) provide some guidance, but really - I personally don't want them to censor any more heavily.

comment How was the opening scene in Fight Club made?
I think there is a good commentary on it on the DVD, but don't have access to it now unfortunately. Pretty sure its CGI, the Movie was groundbreaking in that respect - lots of previously 'impossible' shots, like how his apartment was blown up, or the pull-back from the wastepaper basket.

comment Were Tyrion's stories true?
Good answer - I was correct about the principal Tyrion was using to uncover Cersei's network, but I'd forgotten (and was boarding a plane) what the specific stories were.

comment What old 50's or 60's Sci Fi movie is this scene from?
Please put as much detail as possible. Are you sure its a movie - like was it ~90 minutes or more long, or an episode of something like the Twilight Zone. Was it in black and white, or color.

comment Are there any spiders in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey?
@Esh - wow, that was a long time between asking the question and watching the movie. I'm glad you got to enjoy it. Unfortunately the 'desolation of smaug' has much more significant scenes with spiders.

comment In Fight Club, when Ed Norton first confronts Marla, why doesn't he tell her about his insomnia?
I seem to remember (from the book) that he actually doesn't bare his soul to strangers - that he remains silent and everyone else assumes the worst.

comment How are fake reality shows not false advertising? And if they are, why do they get away with it?
@BonGart - "differences between Science Fiction and SciFi"? Can you explain this, I don't understand what you mean.

Meanwhile @Broken_Window - the question is on topic here.

comment Why isn't Woody a valuable item anymore?
@Richard - I had little room to comment on your flag. There doesn't appear to be a consensus that this is on-topic on SciFi, so I'm not going to migrate it back just because of one opinion - also it messes the OP around. If there is a consensus from SciFi and the OP agrees I will migrate this back.
