There are certain similarities to The Shining...

comment How did “Good Kill” get the cooperation of the Air Force?
If the Air Force was involved in the film's making, you would expect to see them acknowledged in the credits. Are they? IMDB doesn't list them in the film's company credits page. Compare the corresponding page for Air Force One which thanks the Air Force and many specific units.

comment Who were the choices for the leading role in Total Recall (1990)?
@MattD: I'd say it provides insight into the original artistic vision for the film and how it evolved.

comment In the movie 'Amadeus', did Tom Hulce play all the correct piano notes himself?
@JohnnyBones: He's just saying that his lesson on the third day was a concerto. I don't think he's claiming that he was able to play it successfully.

comment Why is it always the same type of beer cup used in college-style movies/series?
Of course, it's entirely possible that product placement is also involved.

comment Was Bugs Bunny impersonating someone when he ate the carrot?
@ShizZ.: There's a copy of the screenplay here. It doesn't look like anyone ever says "What's up, doc" in the film.

comment Are Sean Bean's characters more prone to die than others?
If you checked Alec Guinness at the right point in his career, you could get a ratio well over 100%. Or better yet, what about Temuera Morrison?

comment How did Smiley know he could trust a certain person?
The second explanation is the most convincing, I think. I concentrated on the interview with Prideaux but forgot about what Westerby had to say. The first explanation might work for the movie, but not for the BBC series or the novel, in which the conversation doesn't take place at the airport, and Smiley doesn't explicitly threaten Esterhase. Anyway, +1 and thanks!

comment How did Smiley know he could trust a certain person?
Thanks Andrew for adding the tag. Napoleon: I guess you didn't approve of my original phrasing of the title How did Smiley know he could trust [spoiler]?, but just deleting [spoiler] leaves a non-grammatical sentence fragment. I've changed it to a certain person but if you have a better phrasing in mind I'd be happy to hear it.

comment Is God really a Red Sox fan?
Since the Griffins live in Rhode Island, it's geographically appropriate (perhaps even essential) that they are Red Sox fans.

comment Why would Q attach the computer of a known cyberterrorist to the MI6 computer network?
It seemed in the film that even Q realized he'd blundered by doing this.
