comment In Total Recall, how did Quaid know who to shoot when someone pretended to be trying to “wake him up”?
In the original movie, the man's drop of sweat indicated the man was not a computer-generated hallucination but a real human who was scared because he was in real danger. Similarly, in the remake, the woman's tear indicated she was experiencing genuine emotion and therefore was a real person. I'll edit this into the answer now...

comment How did they dispose old Joe's wife's body in the movie Looper (2012)?
What happens at the end of Looper means that the murder of Old Joe's wife never happens. In fact, Old Joe and his wife never even meet. Lucky for her!

comment In “Dark Knight Rises” what was U.S. government's strategy?
Those Spec-Ops guys were such an obvious plot device! In other words, they were clearly inserted into the story to provide necessary exposition, such as what is noted in comment above. Part of why I didn't love Dark Knight Rises.
