comment Why is the movie titled “The Sixth Sense”?
Why would anyone downvote this question? Why would it get two downvotes?

comment Why did Vincent Vega diss Butch?
Shane, Vincent calls Butch "Punchy". Stoker Thompson is a has-been boxer who is supposed to throw a fight who is called "Punchy" by his trainer in The Set-Up . I don't know of any evidence beyond that simple statement.

comment Why did Vincent Vega diss Butch?
I believe your question is really "how did Vincent LEARN that Butch is going to throw the fight". There is no evidence in the screenplay or movie to suggest HOW he came about this information.

comment Why do movie coroners eat while they do an autopsy?
Your answer provides good information, but it doesn't answer the original question: "Why do movie coroners eat while they do an autopsy?"

comment Why is the breeding aspect important?
"It wasn't so much a 'behold the miracle of life' moment as it was a major 'how could we have fucked up so bad?' moment." ~ That is so well stated. +1

comment How was Andy Dufresne able to dig the tunnel for many years without being discovered?
I agree that this is the answer despite it being totally implausible that the warden of such a high security prison would allow or enable such a security breach.

comment Why does Thor try to break out of the cage?
I believe that Thor and Loki can't be killed by humans. I believe that they can kill each other though.

comment Does Anton Chigurh kill Carla Jean Moss?
I have not read the book, but I totally agree with the action of checking his boots for blood means that he did kill her.

comment Who stole the heroin in No Country For Old Men?
Okay, we don't actually see (in the movie) the Mexicans who chased Moss into the water take the herion. It's also never stated (in the movie or the book) who took it, right?

comment Why does Jerry Seinfeld not change his character's name
Tyler, from what I have learned about the show, Larry David was a very reluctant participant. He wanted to help Jerry with the first episode and then kept trying to get out of helping further. He never thought the show would get picked and kept agreeing to work on "just a few more" episodes.

comment Where do the historical accuracies end and fiction begin in Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter?
I think maybe your question is a little to vague to be a single question. Obviously, there is much truth and much fiction in the plot, characters, and motivations. Asking a more specific question might render more specific answers.

comment In Prometheus, is Meredith Vickers a human or android?
I don't know who downvoted your answer. If people are going to downvote you, they should have the courtesy of telling you why they are doing so. I think you made great observations. Thanks!

comment Why did the Engineer at the start of the movie drink the dark liquid?
Okay, so is he on Earth when he does this? Is it thousands of years ago?

Thanks for the clarification.

comment Why was Anton Chigurh being arrested at the beginning of the film?
The OP references the film, not the novel. I have not read the novel, but have seen the film countless times. I don't recall any reason for the arrest in the film. Is there anything in the film about the arrest?

After watching again, I agree. Your observation was insightful.

I'll keep this in mind when I watch it again. Awesome movie!

comment In, “There Will Be Blood”, what was the motivation to kill
I agree he was being vindictive. And that kind of seems to be the only motivation. Usually when people take such action, there is an obvious benefit to them. He didn't seem to take pleasure in the killing -- before or after -- and there was no financial benefit.

comment Why the stoic acting style in 2001 Space Odyssey?
@Beska thanks for pointing that out. I had originally posted several examples with sources, but took them out.
