comment Did the marketing of Terminator 2 actually spoil the movie?
@AndrewMartin What's wrong with asking for opinions? I don't mean for it to be "opinion-based" but aren't all reviews and critiques of cinema opinion-based? This is a probably a question that should go to Meta but I hope it's not needed for this question. The article does a good job of using scenes from the movie to support it's theory. This is what I expect from a good answer to this question. Something ringing closer to an analysis than just an opinion. Asking for a quote from James Cameron if possible, I think clarifies that sources should be used to support any stated opinion.

This one becomes a good identify question because of all of the movies you have eliminated as possibilities. Good job!

Ok so I applaud you for thinking to ask the source. Brilliant move. I am irritated though that a search on IMDB itself doesn't bring up Russ Tamblyn if you search for Ziggy. Amber Tamblyn's dad y'all.

comment Coming to America sparring scene; stunt men, or self-performed?
@MattD It's not exactly "taking you at your word" (which I've never really seen anybody have a problem with unless they are asking for proof or sources which this person didn't) if you watch the video it's fairly evident that an actual gymnast was used for the 10 backflips in a row and since Eddie Murphy doesn't have a professional gymnastic background it's more of a statement of logic. Unfortunately stunt doubles aren't normally noted for their work. Besides if Eddie Murphy could do that you'd hear about it in every movie interview he's ever done. It's classic "movie magic"

comment Which actress is in this nosebleed gif?
I just wanted to say this is a great example of how to do an identify question. You provided as much information as possible and it is a very specific scene. Plus you posted a little about why you were looking for it. This is how they should all be.

comment Why did the Great Gasby (2013) movie erase the hints of Nick Carraway's homosexuality?
I don't want this to be a discussion or discourage you from posting on this site. This is a unique and interesting perspective however you are using an opinion to base this question on and demanding to know why the director didn't pickup on what you did. If you were to instead discuss the subtleties of this movie versus the book and ask if the director missed an opportunity by not exploring this then you would have a question with some merit. It would still be opinion based and a discussion but it would be more inline with this site and the questions on it.

comment Why did the Great Gasby (2013) movie erase the hints of Nick Carraway's homosexuality?
@georgechalhoub Ok now I am downvoting because even the paper you reference states it's an opinion and that "it seems strange that homosexuality is not addressed in The Great Gatsby" unless we read something into a literary work that may or may not be there. The "gay scenario" as you describe it doesn't come off as a homosexual encounter or allusion to me and I don't believe the majority of people read it that way. If you're familiar with early 20th century writers they are all retrospectively considered homosexual except maybe Hemingway. This is an opinion that you are stating as fact.

comment Why did the Great Gasby (2013) movie erase the hints of Nick Carraway's homosexuality?
I'm not going to downvote, but you're asking a question about why a director made choices based off of what information exactly? You do give examples that do show the potential for Nick be homosexual but unless there is something by F. Scott to back it up or if it's a well known theory discussed in college literary classes then I don't see how there can be expectations for a director to pick up on these clues that the majority of people haven't.
