comment Why “The Best Things in Life Are Free?”
I had a feeling there were quotables out there that could provide part of an answer, but your own personal insight is what I wanted more. Wonderful.

comment Why the long takes in Rope?
After thinking about it a bit more, I think the close votes may have to do with a specific interpretation of my question. The close-voters read the question as asking for a theory as to why Hitch used the long shots. While I'll admit I am curious about that, the main point of my question was to find out what motivated Hitch to use the long shots, which the think the answerers so far understand.

...maybe people were voting to close in order to get the super cool "Passed Judgement" hat for Hat Dash? :-)

comment Why do characters turn off a car when stopped, even briefly, only to turn it back on again?
Even when stopped for... 10 seconds? In a situation where you know you're going to start it right back up again? How is it good habit? To my knowledge it's actually a waste of gas to stop then start it right back up again.

comment Is there any significance to the use of “When Johnny Comes Marching Home”?
Have a citation for that one, @Nobby? Flesh it out a bit and that's a decent answer.

HA @wbogacz that didn't even occur to me. Surely it has to be more than that, though... right?

comment How are Tony's mother and sister green-card holders in Miami while Tony is stuck in Cuba?
Pretty sure it's because Tony was in jail, buuuut gotta go back and probably re-watch to confirm.

comment Can you explain the crawling ritual in Breaking Bad season 3 episode 1
As you can see in the article, whether or not it is Catholic is disputed by the Catholic church, with those skulls (or similar items) a key part of their criticism.

comment What does Mycroft mean when he says “we don't want a repeat of 1972?”
Hm, I like your suggestion but I don't see the relation between Bloody Sunday and what they're talking about. Also: ty for the edit!

comment Is Walt really sorry for poisoning Brock?
I think the better question may be the more broad one: does Walt feel any remorse at all?

comment Who wrote Phoebe's songs?
While I acknowledge that your answer has received the most upvotes, I don't see it as the answer to my question. "Most likely" and "theory" point to your answer being a deduction. While it may be the best deduction we have right now, it does not definitively answer the question, which is why I haven't accepted it. I hope you understand where I'm coming from. Also: I upvoted your answer a long time ago. :)

comment Is The Warriors an accurate depiction of gang relations in 1970s New York City?
It only partially addresses it, in my opinion. At one point the author states that "...the movie adaptation was romanticized and sensationalized," then "the movie didn’t lose all connection to reality." There is insufficient detail in that article for me to agree that it fully answers my question. Helpful though! Thank you!

comment Was Rear Window making a statement about 1950s gender roles?
Re-reading your answer, and it's still great. Wish I could upvote it again!

comment Most faithful Dracula book adaptation (motion film /animation)
I think @TylerShads has it right in that the best way this question can be reworded is to make it about the most honorable film representation, but that may be up for debate. An argument explaining why one adaptation is better than the other would work though, methinks.
