comment Is this a mistake in The Imitation Game?
I think the problem described in the movie meant to indicate that each of the 10 men was checking a different setting -- so the group of 10 men as a whole would check 10 settings per minute, not just 1 setting per minute. (Because as you mention, if all 10 of the men are checking just one setting, there would be no need to mention that there were 10 of them.)

comment What was the Lewis Carroll reference and mockery to the Phoenix members?
+1 Also note the dialogue provides a character contrast between Mark (arrogant and dismissive of others) and Eduardo (less critical of others, and able to befriend them)

comment Why is child acting legal?
@his: +1 for "strong lobby groups"... I think that is the answer to this question. Other justifications are probably smokescreen for the lobbying.

comment Why is child acting legal?
"a child acting in a movie/play is that the latter is creative art and does not force a child to take part in the activity of acting" IDK... it's not hard to imagine a pushy parent forcing the child to take part...

comment Is the lens on Gerty 3000 from “Moon” a reference to HAL from “2001: A Space Odyssey”?
True, lots of AI out there -- but the Moon android immediately and continuously made me think of HAL. I can't say the same about C3P0 or any other movie AI that comes to mind. Also, Moon's plot is largely about interaction of AI with leading actor, just like 2001 (I added the fourth bullet to my answer to help drive this home).
