I am a long time reader of fantasy and science fiction. A lover of horror movies and bad sci-fi. A collector and scholar of comic books. I have an MA in History focusing on the Cold War and comic books during the Reagan and Bush years. I believe knowledge should be free and that you can learn from anyone if you just take the time. Even if all you learn is how not to be like that person.

This question appears to be off-topic because it is about a review website's operational procedures.

comment What is the cinematic origin (first use) of a “Fortune teller will lose powers after intimacy” trope?
I searched through imdb.com for some of the keywords from "Live and Let Die" including psychic and virginity. I also looked through films with precognition as a keyword. The earliest movie I could find with this trope was actually "Live and Let Die." I can't say that's a definitive answer though.

comment When did each Horcrux get destroyed in the Harry Potter movies?
Regulus only retrieved the locket. He did not remove the curse on it. To destroy the piece of Voldemort's soul that it contained the locket had to be destroyed or damaged so badly it couldn't be repaired. Ron, after being mentally tortured by the locket with images of Harry and Hermione together, destroyed it in the Forest of Dean with Godric Gryffindor's sword in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

comment Why did Michael Richards refuse to portray himself?
I have to ask where you are finding information that Michael Richards "refused" to be in the movie. I can't even find anything saying they offered him a part in Man in the Moon.
