comment Is Jeffrey involved in the virus plot or just the animal-release plot?
+1 OK, now you have me doubting my own answer to my own question! The script changes DEFINITELY add ambiguity. Wow, this is a tough one...

comment Did the same dog play Einstein in Back to the Future I and II?
Ah, Tiger. What a performer. His head twist in BTTF (pictured above) is widely recognized as one of the greatest moments in animal performance history. Per the unauthorized bio, Tiger never got over being replaced by Freddie, and eventually died alcoholic and broke. Meanwhile, rumor is Freddie has a new reality show in development with Bravo...

comment Johnny Ola's cut finger in The Godfather 2 - accident or what?
+1 I'm still curious about why this moment was included. Was it scripted, or just something that happened spontaneously and was subsequently included? (not that I expect an answer... just interesting to ponder)

comment Is this a mistake in The Imitation Game?
That makes sense, Mourad -- you are probably right -- I haven't seen the movie, but maybe it shows that it really does take 10 men to check one setting. In either case, I think we agree the movie's "20 million years" is way too low.

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).

comment Why does Alfred suddenly start to encourage Bruce's darker side in episode S01E08?
"And you remember that I let him try." Damn, that is so harsh! I like this Angry Alfred. His reaction almost suggests he had a soft spot for Mrs. Wayne...

comment What was that old movie where the guy got turned into a stone statue
Yeah, saw that. Thing is OP memories are often inaccurate, especially when they're from 30 years ago, when OP was 4 years old. My theory is "post the answer in case it happens to be right." Doesn't cost anyone anything, does it?
