Yes, I think a key part of the story is she lies to and uses him.

comment Why do all post-apocalyptic-set media portray perfect teeth?
+1. Same reasoning explains why almost all of the actors on these shows are much more good-looking than average (and the only ones who aren't have specifically non-sexual roles, like "grandmother" or "wise old man"): because audience members generally prefer to watch attractive characters (whether the audience members are aware of it or not) and tooth decay is not attractive.

comment Why was Birdman on limited release?
@CGCampbell: I really enjoyed Birdman -- which, judging by past experience, suggests the masses will despise it. Definitely an arthouse film.

comment Scientific accuracy of Jurassic Park's premise?
The fact that he has had some success (however small) with extinct lizards suggests, at least to me, that success with dinosaurs could be possible in the future. He's already taken the first steps. Who's to say future technology won't allow someone to go all the way?

comment Identify the episode of 80-90's TV show ALF
Now that you mention, the show ALF had quite a few disturbing moments IIRC. I wish I could remember this episode... seems like some kind of "meta" thing going on, with the puppet serving as a ventriloquist LOL

I think WhatEnglish's answer below is superior, so I want to delete my answer here, but it is accepted, so I can't... :(

+1 This answer breaks new ground, tying together the "Rocky Horror" reference and the Zed events. Nicely done!

comment Who kills the priest's dog?
I don't think anyone in the story is pure "good" or "bad." Father James himself resorts to drinking and fighting at one point. And clearly his daughter had complaints about his parenting. I'd say the Father James character faces the same trials faced by the other characters, and all humans: Can he be forgiven? Can he forgive others? And can he let go of the futile desire to control his fate, turning it over to God instead -- even if doing so will be his destruction? (IMHO Father James is a hero because the answer to all three questions is yes.)

-1: "either they survived or died" does not add any value

comment Where are the dogs in Titanic?
+1 The filmmaker's choice to show the dogs early in the movie will definitely lead some viewers (like OP and me) to wonder what happens to them in the end.
