comment Is Jeffrey involved in the virus plot or just the animal-release plot?
If this response is true, why -- when Leland Goines says "I don't have access to the virus... I took myself out of the loop" -- does Jeffrey respond "Too late!"? (You can see this moment via the link in original question.)

For some reason, I just love the subject line of this question. :) Hope we get an answer...

comment Is “Oblivion” somehow linked to “Moon”?
It's when the protagonist discovers that there are numerous copies of himself, driving home the realization that he is a clone. To me, Oblivion's version of this scene felt nearly identical to Moon's.

comment Why is a casino token used as payment in Skyfall?
@Liath, the chip is far from anonymous. First, it comes from the casino, meaning an investigator would know the employer was in contact with the casino. Also, the chip was not a regular $5 chip, but entitled its holder to a briefcase stuffed with cash, so obviously the employer worked with the casino to set that up. Overall, for an investigator, the chip would be a valuable "lead" -- just as it was for Bond.

comment Did the Ludovico technique work on Alex or was he just faking all the time?
+1 you raise good points. IMHO he was truly overpowered by Dim & Georgie when they hold his head in water, and could not fight back at that point. And the Beethoven-suicide scene is a dream-metaphor (this being a Kubrick film) for Alex finally "growing up" -- leaving behind his out-of-control youth for a more socially acceptable (but still self-serving) adulthood.

+1 though keep in mind, if he revealed that he was faking by defending himself, he might have been put back in prison. So he might have had a good reason to not defend himself.
