comment How did Movie 43 get so many big name stars?
great question. from what I read, many people who have had the misfortune of seeing this movie actually seem upset with its big-name stars for participating.

comment Did James Bond fail his mission in “Skyfall”?
I think the key is " M didn't want anyone else to die because of her"... seems the unofficial mission was to kill Silva so he couldn't do more large-scale harm... saving M would have been a bonus, but was not the ultimate goal. Answer accepted.

comment What was the meaning of Schultz's flashback of dogs?
+1 to me, it was more of a transformation: Schultz begins the movie mildly opposed to slavery and ends the movie fiercely hating slavery. But either way could support your idea that he then killed Candie out of disgust over slavery.

comment What was the meaning of Schultz's flashback of dogs?
+1 good points. I edited the question to remove the references to Broomhilda, which were not necessary.

comment What was the purpose of Candie's handshake in Django Unchained?
@Christian now that you mention it, I might ask a second question about what Candie had in mind...

comment What was the purpose of Candie's handshake in Django Unchained?
That explanation makes sense, Matt - thanks. Although I took the flashback to the dogs as Schultz thinking "he's going to kill us anyway, so I might as well take him out."

comment Was Bugs Bunny impersonating someone when he ate the carrot?
+1 well done. hey, anyone happen to know if Bugs's line "what's up, Doc?" is spoken by Clark Gable while he's chomping the carrot?

comment What was the purpose of Candie's handshake in Django Unchained?
So Schultz essentially committed suicide, just to win a battle of egos? To me, such recklessness would be inconsistent with his character's behavior through rest of film. But maybe that was the point -- maybe that's how upset Candie made him. Hmm.

comment Identify a movie where boy controls his family
@SAFX yes, in color. Apparently there is an older black-and-white Twilight Zone episode on the same subject (see other answer).

+1 Nice! Thanks for this answer. I expect to accept this answer soon. And of the three explanations, I personally prefer the last one.

comment In Argo, what is the culture official asking about?
Thank you. Was there some underlying meaning that I am missing? Bride represents US in Iran or something?

comment Ending of Donnie Darko
Matt, I don't understand how knowing he is "nuts" would make my answer less valid... if anything, more valid, right?

comment What would be the equivalent of the carnivorous island?
I can't recall if there were meerkat bones in the boat. But if there were, I would interpret them as reminders of Pi's changed outlook. (I just overhauled my answer, BTW)

comment in Skyfall opening scene on train, does Bond fake getting shot?
Win, check the photo with the original question above. As I recall, that scene includes both shots of Bond directly and shots of Bond in the mirror. I also recall thinking that the wound seemed to change sides, but then realizing it was the mirror.

comment What purpose did Quaid serve Cohagen as an Average Joe on the assembly line?
+1 nice explanation. the one thing I don't understand -- the last sentence -- why would no police have gotten hurt?

So much of Looper makes me want to shout "He didn't get out of the cockadoodie car!"

comment in Skyfall opening scene on train, does Bond fake getting shot?
@Oliver_C Upon close review, I don't think it's clear that those screenshots show a second wound. Just seems like first wound's blood spreading. And the Bond figure in the musical sequence clearly has just one wound.
