comment Personality change in violent psychopath waiting to be executed.
@JohnP I do not see why this would be a long shot. It seems to me to fit the description. From my understanding, we are looking for some movie where a character has a multiple personality. So why doesn't this movie fit the profile? As a side note, please observe that the user does not specify anything about the ending.

comment Why does the demon that possesses Regan react to the “fake” holy water?
@Raytrek I do not believe it is a good idea to make a myth out of the Holy Water. I do not mean to make assessments on all beliefs here, but the Orthodox Church(and I am almost sure it also applies to the Catholic Church - they are very similar) considers that the water is made holy by the action of the Holy Spirit, called by the priest's prayers. So it is not the energy of the priest, it is the doing of God(the Holy Spirit). So, because the film seems to be taking religious beliefs seriously, your comment seems to be inadequate in this case. It is a point of view, but not applicable here.

comment Did Frank Underwood mean for the bill to fail?
@NapoleonWilson The first 4 or 5 episodes of season 3 are really hard to watch. So bad are they. I made myself watch them because some friends told me it got brilliant. And beginning with episode 5 or 6 it gets better. But it is far from being brilliant. Really dramatic events are sometimes swept aside and I had the feeling that there's a lot of cheap pro-CIA propaganda. To me Homeland is the most overrated show at the moment. I felt that it insults my intelligence. So, if you were disappointed in the 2nd half of season 2, I would recommend watching something else.

comment Did Frank Underwood mean for the bill to fail?
@AndrewLatham About your first commentary(1.), you are only half right. Russo wouldn't have had a failure UNTIL Rachel's temptation. Frank's bet was on Russo's alcohol problem. So, having a perfect campaign under the flag of (self-)improvement and about how a man can change himself and through this power then change the community was the first step. The second step is to make Russo look like a hypocrite. Showing that the whole thing about change was false, that he cannot be relied on. This would happen by him doing an interview while being drunk. So please notice the steps.

comment Why is Claire at Clean Water Initiative?
In the second season Claire leaves the CWI without any hesitation. This supports your theory. But if it only was meant to improve Frank's image, why did she fight so hard for the money? Why would she betray Frank for Remy and his support? It is obvious that she betrays her husband's trust by convincing the 2 senators(or what were they) to vote AGAINST Russo's bill(supported by Frank). What is more, this thing was pretty important for the campaign(and for their plan). If CWI's only reason is publicity, why does Claire fight for it so hard, refusing to aid the bigger picture?

To mi mind, you cannot have a 100% realistic TV show, because it might get boring(someone said the same thing about Homeland when it was a good show - I am not talking about the soap opera it has become). Still, House of Cards is probably one of the most realistic shows I have seen. Hopefully it will not become something utterly stupid(see Homeland).

comment Did Frank Underwood mean for the bill to fail?
Good answer. But you say that Claire's position at the foundation is a ploy. Why would you think that? What would they gain from her position there? What is more, she seems to be taking it very serious(she sabotages Frank's bill for the foundation). Care to elaborate(even in a comment) on this matter?

comment K-PAX ending explanation
Sounds like an interesting approach(the one with the view of the skeptics), but, in my opinion, it needs a bit of elaboration.
