Can you give us some guidance about what "old" means to you. Black & white? Approximate age?

comment Why did Hank not associate THE CAPN with 'Captain Cook'?
Err, didn't he think he caught The Captain when he raided the cookhouse? Wasn't Jesse's partner at the time (Emilio) arrested?

Was it a movie set in the UK (since Gordon Jackson is Scottish)?

comment What exactly does a director do in an animated feature?
Interesting question though - I started thinking the roles were pretty much equivalent, but its made me realize that a director has even more control over the end result of an animated movie than a live action, that the role is more important!

comment What exactly does a director do in an animated feature?
Are you focusing on the time the director sits on set and calls 'action'? This is only one part of the role of directing a live action movie - the planning that goes into setting up the actual shoot, location, set design, costuming, etc followed by the editing, sound etc. Yes, the director doesn't sit behind the artists - but they do make the final decisions about the art direction, character design, script, storyboard the scenes, etc.

comment What exactly does a director do in an animated feature?
The director's role is surely somewhat the same in live-action and animated movies, it is their movie - they are responsible for the delivery of the entire thing. The fact that the implementation mechanism is artists and voice actors rather than a set, lighting & actors does not reduce the fact that the director is responsible for deciding what goes in the scenes and how it is all made.

comment Who fired the shot and what is the symbolism in firing shot right next to Lucas at the end of the movie?
Whose post are you disagreeing with, and I will convert this to a comment - this is not a forum where the posts stay in a particular order.

This does not provide an answer to the question. To critique or request clarification from an author, leave a comment below their post - you can always comment on your own posts, and once you have sufficient reputation you will be able to comment on any post.

comment Do “American” military movies generally profit outside of the US?
I've also retitled it 'military' movies, since clearly American movies are profitable around the world - you seem specifically interested in military/war movies.

comment Do “American” military movies generally profit outside of the US?
I've tentatively tagged it box-office. I'm not entirely sure how easy it is to simply and factually answer this - I mean we could probably find the rest-of-the-world box office for the movies mentioned here, and perhaps relate them to the domestic box-office in the USA, and compare to other movies or genres. Its potentially interesting, but would the results representative of a genre or just of these movies?

comment Is Person of Interest sci-fi?
Then to my opinion (having not seen the movie) it does sound like it could be classed as SciFi

comment Is Person of Interest sci-fi?
@NapoleonWilson - Absolutely. Inception is definitely science fiction from my perspective. Its a world impacted by a new technology ... stealing secrets has forced business leaders (and probably others like politicians, military etc), to learn new skills such as developing subconscious security. Its not as clear cut as Minority Report where the whole DC area has had its murder rate cut to zero - but for me these movies both focus on the technology - without the technology the movie wouldn't exist, which is one definition of SciFi to me (there are others I'm sure).

comment Is Person of Interest sci-fi?
I definitely agree with @NapoleonWilson on this - the boundary is soft but ScienceFiction is more than just implausible technology. A purist would say the story should be significantly impacted by some aspect of science - future/different technology, aliens etc etc. So I would say an invisible car in a James Bond movie is not SF because its kind of a throwaway gimmick in one scene, but a movie dominated by the concept of shared dreaming, or being able to see into the future to stop crime is. That said, AI is certainly in the right direction if it is significant to the 'theme'.

comment Why wasn't Arya left at the Eyrie?
Of course what Clegane planned to do next is anyone's guess. Jon Snow has no money, Bran is missing, Sansa is (to his knowledge) still in King's Landing.

comment Why wasn't Arya left at the Eyrie?
@JohnSmithOptional - I definitely feel your pain. However I'm more inclined to think that the guards might not have taken The Hound's word that the scruffy girl, who laughed at the news of Lysa's death was a relative of noble blood. The Hound, knowing that Lysa's heir was very young and possibly not well disposed to someone known as a Lannister bannerman, might have just given up on the news and turned around. As for the "minutes to hours" to get to the Eyrie, the books indicate its a difficult climb.
