While this IS a valid philosophical question, what it does is call back into question the Jedi Philosophy and the Jedi's failure of the prequel era, which was not re-addressed until The Last Jedi. One reason the Jedi failed was because they could not live up to their own standards, as even in The Phantom Menace we might suppose that the reason Anakin is at ...

The yellow shirt is Pat. Their T-shirt colour was also the reason for there ban in the past. As per writersblockmagazine: It nearly didn’t. After airing the pilot in 1976, the creators had to explain why they had specifically chosen red and yellow as the shirt colours of Pat and Mat, as the government’s Office for Press and Information believed that the ...

Robert was a great warrior He won the battle of Trident and the throne by shoving his huge war hammer into the Last Dragon's (Rhaegal) chest. He only went to war against him because of his love for Lyanna, as he thought Rhaegal stole her from him and kidnaped her.

Kinerva is one shot character, but one who offers the series a few important things: She helps to prove that Melisandre isn't a complete liar by showing viewers another R'hlllor follower in the form of another Red Priestess who dresses nearly identical. This in turn helps to world build and plays into the "bigger picture" narrative, as this particular ...

According to GRRM, Robert Baratheon is at least partly inspired by Henry VIII. In his youth, Henry VIII was charismatic, an enthusiastic athlete, and a regular participant in jousts. He became severely obese as he aged though - Wikipedia cites a waist size of 54" on death. As king of course there is little to stop someone from enjoying whatever rich diet ...

Robert Baratheon, as a character in Game of Thrones, is quintessentially defined as someone who has let themselves go. He is not a bad person on the good/evil scale, but he's not a great ruler or example. Take note of the following exchange between Robert and Ned: Robert Baratheon: Lord Eddard Stark, I would name you the Hand of the King. Eddard ...

I am assuming you are talking about Kinvara, her work was just to help Tyrion spreading the name of Daenerys. Which she did and had no other purpose to fullfill like many other characters. Moreover she was not the second on-screen Red Priestesses. The first one was Melisandre as you know but there are many other Red Priests and Red Priestesses shown or ...

The Red Women in the show are simply priestesses in the faith of R'hllor. They are nothing special, except the one we follow through the show called "Melisandre" This second one has no special role beyond that single episode in the series, so she is simply not mentioned anymore later. You can read more about the cult and the red priests / priestesses in ...

They are going to Naath, as said by Grey Worm: We sail for the Isle of Naath. They are free people and seem to be following Grey Worm and of course, Naath was Missandei's home. It's a throwback to their past conversation where Missandei expressed going back there. So it seems they are going to Naath and might become the protectors of Missandei's people ...

They were putting up a show of friendliness for Coraline the first time. They wore a costume, a mask needed for such performance. White eyes not only look better, but are symbolizing reveal, the change from white to black symbolizes masks falling down.

To understand the homosexual representation by Jason Priestly in "Tombstone" well I think one must grasp that a couple of years before Wyatt Earp died in Los Angeles, an embittered old man at the poor treatment he thought himself to have received in Breckenridge's own biography, "Helldorado" complaining to his own working biographer, Stuart Lake, that "...

Because he's the leader of the X-Men, and known as "Professor X", his name is usually pronounced emphasising the X: ex-ay-vyer. Many readers are not familiar with the correct pronunciation: zay-vyer

Well there are enough similarities between Seinfeld and The Bing Bang Theories that somebody already has compared them. https://suggestsmagic.wordpress.com/2011/11/28/big-bang-theory-is-a-seinfeld-copycat/ Both George and Leonard share more features that just the looks: they both are obsessive, specially with details, not confident about themselves, they ...

I also pondered that. But it was more impossible to imagine Max staying. I think we need to understand why we ask why. The only reason that our minds even question this very fitting ending is that during the entire movie the characters were trying to find a place that would be more or less inhabitable. They found nothing 160 riding days out and finally ...

I believe I read that he is based on the aviator/inventor Howard Hughes who definitely in real life was sort of abrupt and, being very sure of himself, might seem arrogant to others. I suspect that many successful people in technology would indeed seem arrogant -- a more recent example is Steve Jobs.

This doesn't look like the same actor to me. Here's Dan Castellaneta's imdb, which doesn't list The Last Boy Scout as one of his movies, as you state in your question. The actor in the screen shot looks to be Jack Kehler, listed as Scrabble Man on IMDB. He's listed with 165 credits on IMDB, he's kind of a forgettable every man that Hollywood uses.

Although I haven't seen Doctor Sleep; it seems clear from your description that this is a reference to a well-known scene in Stephen King's The Shining (warning: graphic content).
