comment Can you tell me who is this actress from the picture?
Please refrain from making claims of racial or national bias here, we have a number of very active users from non-English speaking regions of the world. If you have a concern about whether questions like this should be on-topic, you are more than welcome to discuss this in-chat or open a question on meta.movies.stackexchange.com

comment Why didn't Tesla use his machine to make money before selling it to Angier?
@Sean - the phrase "honest struggle" is not meant to imply using the machine would be dishonest - its meant to imply he would rather be recognized for his talents. Like you say if he was honest about this, he would at least be called a liar, and if the idea was replicated by less moral people, the machine could be abused. If someone duplicated gold at the very least they could become the richest person on the planet, at the worst, it could undermine the financial basis of society at the time.

@NapoleonWilson - aha - I've been responding to flags. Well most flags, theres one that needs some work that I might write a meta post about.

comment What is the shortest timespan depicted in a movie?
The fire on the boat clearly isn't part of Verbal's story, its why Verbal is arrested and questioned in the first place. They also question the guy who is badly burned and get an artist's impression of Keyser Soze. For this to all happen in less than the 23 minutes of Vantage point seems unlikely - sorry. Good suggestion though.

comment Why do some movies contain scenes in different languages?
For my benefit - what are the types of scenes in The Accidental Spy. What sorts of scenes are in English, what are in the other language?

Any plot-explanation about a movie will contain spoilers.

comment Who said “Yahoo Yipadee?”
@MattD (and others) - there are several flags that agree with you, but seriously is this not an answer? Is it not similar to the other answer in that it proposes a possible matching phrase?

comment Where are the dogs in Titanic?
I've tidied up the comments - this was becoming heated and some comments (from more than one person) were verging on personal criticisms, which is just not acceptable here.

comment Where are the dogs in Titanic?
Hey guys come on - its ok to care about the dogs and be interested in their fate, its ok to be disgusted by the tragedy in general. Such a lot of unnecessary death (given they had spaces on the lifeboats). Please tone down the discussion.

comment In There Will Be Blood, why did HW go mute and try to burn down the shed?
Hi, are these really related questions, or are they separate? If they are not related I would ask them as separate questions.

comment Why were the Hobbit and Lord of the Ring movies released in reverse order to the books?
Closing this as a duplicate. The system doesn't allow me to put duplicate as a reason across sites.

comment Sci Fi movie with maroon droid, and hero droid with spherical feet
@Steve - you're welcome - I saw this at the movie theatre when I was quite young. Probably a terrible movie but I enjoyed it at the time.

comment What happened to all the Aliens (Xenomorphs) that attacked the Engineers?
I took it to mean the Xenomorph like thing. Xenomorph being a term for the original creatures from Alien/Aliens

comment How are first-person perspective videos shot?
I'm not the downvoter @BeingJudas - but GoPro was first sold cameras in 2004 and Smack My Bitch Up was from 1997. The answer is therefore not complete as such techniques were in use before.

Hey, if Will's answer is correct - the best way to thank him is to upvote it and accept it - you can do this with the controls to the left of the answer.

@NapoleonWilson - err, I think it was for emphasis.

I tried to rephrase it - if it is incorrect, you can roll it back.
