Specifically regarding the meme, X-Men (2000) is not actually set in 2000, but in "the not too distant future". It could be another 30 years after X-Men: Dark Phoenix and in a different timeline anyway, where he didn't escape solitary confinement in 1973 and lived a less active and healthy lifestyle. The only dating in the original trilogy is that Magneto ...

There is no such spot. I watched the movie yesterday, and found no spot. Today, I reviewed his escape orchestration, around 1h13m30, and saw nothing. This video compiles a few different parts of his escape, and no spot. If you saw this at the cinema, I have to assume it's either a cue mark, as suggested by comments, or a ...

To give the audience the sense of meeting the characters for the first time, in every movie. From a 2014 interview with Simon Kinberg by Steve Weintraub for Collider on X-Men: Days of Future Past: KINBERG: Yeah. One of the things, and this is an idea that came out of my work with Matthew Vaughn was, we didn’t want to do what most sequels do, which is ...

There are two meanings. One, set in the story: Henry says "Got to live the rest of my life like a schnuck". And smiles. Then "we" get to see the reason why he smiles.

Tekka is referring to Kylo Ren's heritage, being the son of Han Solo & Princess/General Leia, and nephew of Luke Skywalker. "Where" in this instance is not about a location, but of character and substance of his family's legacy. Tekka, not directly responding to Kylo Ren's statement, instead takes a shot back at Kylo Ren implying that Kylo Ren is ...

Throughout the movie Chance was talking in allegory, just as many of the great thinkers and religious figures have done. The insipid inbred elite as well as the media, I repeat myself, continued to project on to Chance what they wanted to believe. It started to dawn on me that this was a clever satire on the nature of the relationship of man with God. ...

The movie is based on a book written prior to 9/11. But since the movie was shot afterwards, Lee decided to include it "in a millisecond", because Lee is a New Yorker It was a traumatizing event that changed the world and they wanted to reflect that Edward Norton said that it was "now part of the fabric of New York" and else it would have looked like "an ...

Star Wars! What I have come to realize being a JJ Abrams/Bad Robot fan for over 20 years is that most of the early TV series (Alias, LOST, Fringe, Revolution, and the very short-lived Alcatraz) had a Star Wars foundation, but with different genre skins (Espionage, Epic Adventure, Crime Drama, Dystopian, etc) on top. What I mean by this is, most of these ...

The speech to the Dothraki is not something random. They have significance. This takes us back to S01 E07 "You Win or You Die". Khal Drogo knows that Ser Jorah was ordered by Robert Baratheon to poison Daenerys. But Jorah saves her. Khal Drogo understands and pardons him for saving his Khaleesi and his son. At that point he vows in front of the Dothraki ...
