Please provide a more descriptive title. Also provide any other details you can in the question (was it live action? Animated? Computer animated? Children's movie? Was it in English? etc.)

comment Which book about encryption did Christopher give Alan when he was a child?
So...it was a book from...THE FUTURE...about...HIMSELF! Puts a whole new sci-fi spin on the film! :)

comment Why did Homer, Moe and Wally cover their mouths when talking about the Super Bowl?
@cde yea, that logic can go both ways, I suppose. I'd argue that the Simpsons writers are huge fans of jokes-for-the-sake-of-jokes, so would suggest this is the more obvious reasoning ("hey, that's funny!")

comment Why did Homer, Moe and Wally cover their mouths when talking about the Super Bowl?
@NapoleonWilson I think that could be the joke...or the intended joke, but I read it much differently as simply Fred Willard's character being a dunce. He just didn't get the joke that was being portrayed (remember, he plays a really gullible character the entire episode). Of course, maybe both interpretations are correct.

comment Why did Homer, Moe and Wally cover their mouths when talking about the Super Bowl?
I admit I have no citation for this. CDE's answer actually does, so I think in the context of SO, that one is more correct. However, I don't have access to the full commentary of said DVD that the Wikipedia article references. I'd like to think there was something lost in translation between his actual commentary and the transcribed comments.

comment Why did Homer, Moe and Wally cover their mouths when talking about the Super Bowl?
@cde, again, it's a joke. Not a technical or logistical hurdle that wasn't insurmountable via any other solution.

comment Why did Homer, Moe and Wally cover their mouths when talking about the Super Bowl?
This isn't really the right answer though. At least, it's not complete. The reason they did this is because it's funny. It's a joke. The practical aspect could have been handled any number of ways, so that was not the actual primary reason.

comment Are some films filmed with a larger frame than all cropped versions?
Yes! I think so! It's not quite the same as the example (note that in the example film, they both lost width, but gained height in the 4:3 version) but seems to be along the same lines and is perhaps just a variation. Interesting that Kubrik used this technique. Do we know what the intent of using it is? I'd guess it's so film makers can focus on the full academy ratio when filming, but not have to worry about cropping for the 4:3 version (back when that was a common ratio for home released).

I'm not so much interested in resolution, but the framing of it while filming. I assume a filmmaker wants to take into account at least one aspect ratio while filming and framing all the shots. "Cropping" the sides to accommodate narrower aspect rations appears to be a post-production issue. But it seems some films are actually shot to specifically accommodate multiple aspect ratios by the filmmaker from the start.

@cde seems that's close to saying "any topic ever put on film" is on topic :)

comment Can a headshot from a sniper really cause muscle spasm?
Is this really a movie question? Seems maybe better suited for biology.se
