I think the dialogue mentioned in the question is in regards to actual physical currency like paper dollars and metal cents. Physical money would be inconvenient in an advanced society. There would be more convenient, secure and transparent accounting systems. Even our early twenty-first century technology makes cash almost obsolete. Except for New York, ...

The first mention of money in TOS was certainly Sulu in Where No Man Has Gone Before. Here everyone is in the (unusually large) conference room to discuss the growing menace of their crew mate as his ESP powers are increasing. Sulu says, Speaking mathematically his powers are increasing geometrically. As if you take a penny and double it everyday, in a ...

Well maybe it's referring to The Hound of the Baskervilles (1972 american made for tv film) too

The significance of the joke is an old one. It means that God has already answered your prayers and prepared your salvation. He has already given you the tools and means to save yourself. You just have to recognize and take advantage of it. Gardner looked for and recognized opportunity. He then seized the opportunity. He did not wait for the opportunity to ...

As per me, I feel this meant, that you had to take action and just praying and hoping that things will work out or that someone will help out (God), won't work. Chris Gardner had the same attitude throughout, he was always trying to make it, and not wallowing in self-pity or giving up.

Although I don't quite remember the exact scene where it is told, I remember the joke rather well and always liked it. It relates to the film's general themes quite nicely. The film is primarily about Chris Gardner fighting the odds and working himself literally from rags to riches. This is also reflected in the film's very title, relating to the classic ...

As stated above, ADR is used a lot in big productions. Wireless body mics hidden in the actors' clothing are capable of capturing the actor's voice while picking up only a tiny bit of the background noise. They are typically highly directional and placed very close to the mouth, so the ratio of the voice level to the background level can be tremendous, ...

I think it's just Nathan mocking Caleb. Throughout the movie, Caleb tries to be more 'clever' than the role assigned to him by Nathan requires. He tries to extend the Turing test to be more rigorous and scientific when Nathan simply wants to see if he forms an emotional/erotic connection with Ava. Caleb also frequently quotes famous figures as in the ...

It’s added later. It’s the job of an actor to do what’s not always ‘obvious’. There are so many scenes that are noisy and loud, like at a club for example, but if you were there or even watched the “B-roll” you’ll hear how empty it sounds. You could hear a pin drop.

In the movie Crazy Stupid Love (2011), according to #5 in this Buzzfeed article, Ryan Gosling had to speak loudly in bar scenes as if he was speaking above the noise, even though the set was quiet. So, while Paulie_D is probably right in most cases, and in your question's case especially, in other cases they add in the ambient sound later. I only add this ...

Usually with ADR Automated Dialog Replacement (ADR) is the process of re-recording dialogue by the original actor (or a replacement actor) after the filming process to improve audio quality or reflect dialogue changes (also known as "looping" or a "looping session").[8][9] In India the process is simply known as "dubbing", while in the UK, it is also ...

Matthew McConaughey plays a British drug dealer No, he doesn't In fact, the character is an American now living in the UK as is stated at several sources...for example... Matthew McConaughey plays American Mickey Pearson, who has built a marijuana business in Britain. When he tries to sell it, others want to capitalize in any way they can. Source

Matthew McConaughey doesn't speak with a British accent because his character, Mickey Pearson, isn't British; he's an American expatriate. I haven't seen the film myself, so I don't know if/where this is stated, but it's mentioned on the film's Wikipedia page: It follows an American marijuana kingpin in England who is looking to sell his business... And ...
