Vader probably has an awareness that the Force can extend someone's consciousness beyond death in a ghost-like form. But he's not afraid of ghosts, they have no real power beyond words and cannot harm him or change his convictions. But what Vader doesn't realize is that Obi-wan's continuing guidance and mentorship of Luke is the "power" that he's talking ...

The information was about gravity, intended to allow NASA to develop technology to manipulate gravity. Gravitational anomalies such as the wormhole were detected by NASA. This told them that the manipulation of gravity was possible. "Plan A" was ostensibly to work towards exploiting this technology to cheaply escape the bounds of the Earth and expand into ...

Arthur got in trouble for having the gun and was fired because of it. If his boss found out Randall was the one who got him the gun, Randall could also get in trouble too. So Randall lied that Arthur got it from someone else and that Arthur even tried to buy one from Randall. The point of this is to show the self-serving nature of the world around Arthur, ...

I can't find the exact quote, but the T-800 mentions that it can detect "temporal displacements" which let him calculate the exact time and location a Terminator would appear. Then Sarah interrupts him and says "That explains the 'how' but not the 'why'." That's pretty much all the movie does to explain it.

This is a combi of two different tv tropes The Bully A person who is cruel to others, especially those who are weaker or have less power." This sums this character up in a nutshell. They will target anyone who is less popular than they are, those who are unable to fight back, or anyone who won't fight back. Comes in different flavours as listed below. ...

"Assuming that their time machines can displace them spatially and not just temporally" There's nothing in the movie to suggest they have precise control over where they end up. Grace appeared in the middle of a highway and the time machine ball burned a hole in the highway which she fell through. That implies (to me) that they missed their target by a ...

Their father abandoned the family. From the script: GINA: Tony-.-Mama -- since Papa took off.... TONY: Hey forget Papa, we never had one, okay? He was a bum! The scene in the movie is slightly different from the script, but conveys the same content: GINA: I'm sorry. I don't know. Mama, ever since Papa left she's... TONY: Forget Papa. We ...

Randall gave the gun to Arthur for money (which he intended to demand from him later). Even then Randall takes advantage of the good nature of Arthur by talking him into taking the gun. When things go awry, Randall quickly (and successfully) tries to push the blame on Arthur, which is when Arthur realizes the true colors of Randall. Then later, when the ...

For a couple of reasons They were making great money, compared their previous income, but coming from modest means, they were still frugal in their lifestyles. They could have afforded to buy their own booze and drink it, but instead looked for an opportunity to steal from their employers, instead, for instance. The accumulation of increased income had ...

I agree with the top answer, however, I believe there's specifically one thing that triggered him to kill him. It was when Mr. Park looked disgusted after smelling the basement guy and ran off with the key. Kim knew how much the basement guy respected Mr. Park and it seemed like after a while, he started to feel empathy for him. You can see Kim's face ...

Maybe Joker didn't know Joker's initial response is "What?" before he laughs it off. At least at this point, it seems he genuinely doesn't know what Batman is talking about (specifically), the information is news to him. Joker spends the rest of the conversation dodging the topic, instead focusing on reasons for Batman to not attack him. This is clear by ...

In the suicide ghost's scene, all the cabinets are shown open. I assumed it was her and she frequents the house, likely because it's where she died. Doesn't explain how they were opened so fast - that's likely one of those unexplainable theatric things.

Death is Powerful Motivator When Obi-Wan says this line, it's because he believes that Luke witnessing a new mentor's death would push Luke to become the Jedi he needs in order to confront and hopefully save his father and the Galaxy. But this line of thought (striking down in order to motivate) appears in each first film, in each Skywalker Saga trilogy (A ...
