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 Two boys, one black haired, the other blonde, switched-at-birth
Hi, unfortunately we have no idea what 'when I was younger' means. Do you have any idea of roughly what year you saw it, was it color or black-&-white. Any idea of the origin country of the movie?

comment Massive Search for Bandaged eyes Girl or Woman
@motuayosar - No, this is not the sort of question that is well supported here unfortunately. Recommendations or lists of equally valid answers do not fit the StackExchange sites very well. Please do ask in the chat though.

comment Are there any movies where killer face was never revealed?
You are asking a lot of questions that are getting downvoted and closed quickly. Looking at your questions, some are either seeking opinions, or in this case many answers may be valid (which is not a good fit for this site, where we try to find the best single answer). If you have any questions, please ask a question on our meta-site.

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.

comment Translating the Jive dialogue
Potentially this could be a good answer ..... but I will convert it to a comment in a day or two if it remains unfinished.

FYI - People are much more likely to read (and upvote) your answer if its not written in capitals.

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.

comment Identify the movie about a sexually frustrated criminal
Why does the behavior described here make him a "sex maniac"? You might want to expand your description of this behavior as meeting a girl in a bar does not make him a maniac.

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.
