I count at least three cross overs. The person considered as a book selling crackpot inferred the cumulative effect of all experiments “wearing down” or gradually weakening the rip. He mentioned, monsters, other things, possibly dinosaurs and demons, meaning it would release people in hell as demons still in hell and separated. That wasn’t pursued, ...

Yes, the translation above is pretty accurate. I just added the original text used in picture. RIGHT: What's wrong?! (喂! 乜野事呀! ) LEFT: The water is boiling (水滾啦) Just one more things, the text is primary used in Cantonese instead of Mandarin

From Words on Screen by Michel Chion: In The Secret in Their Eyes (El secreto de sus ojos, Juan Jose Campanella, 2009, based on a novel by Eduardo Sacheri), Benjamin Esposito (Ricardo Darin), a retired attorney who is writing a novel, uses a typewriter missing the A. Toward the end of the film, he finds a notebook on which he had scrawled TEMO (I fear) in ...

He (Alexander) wanted Jake to witness the murder in order to distract from him as the suspect. If he would just have killed his wife without anyone seeing it, he could easily be a suspect in it. But since there was someone who saw the murder and who swears it was an Indian, it at best steers the suspicion away from Revelle and at least it might cause some ...

The plot can be interpreted as a critic to (not-only) Communism, as said by the director Galter Gaztelu-Urrutia in an interview to El Cultural. Pol Pot was a Cambodian dictator who ruled Cambodia (a country located in the southern portion of the Indochina peninsula in Southeast Asia) between 1975 and 1979. An estimated 300,000 Cambodians starved to death ...

The clearinghouse requires that all traders post margin. Otherwise, everybody would be able to trade in infinite size and the losers would not be able to make good on their bets.

Notice at beginning, at the airport when a major seismic event struck the west coast, there is a headline: “death toll rises in European heat wave”. That explains it all: a start of a pole shift, accompanied with sudden fall of the magnetosphere over Europe. That fits the event called “magnet flip”, accompanied with pole shift that will flood all the coast ...

I think there was a law that two people can be together if and only if they had similar quirk. Like couple with nose bleeds, couple with limps, couple who are heartless etc. That's the reason why , the heartless woman tries to take David to the hotel manager to report him when she finds out that David was not heartless and started crying , when he found she ...

Margaret, if you recall, was trying to take on the role of her sister Rose, to the point of dyeing her hair blonde and having sex with Gardner. Gardner had enlisted help to kill Rose, and it's presumed that Margaret was part of the plan. Upon being questioned, Margaret speaks as if she is Rose, a fatal slip-up which Cooper pounces on. He had suspected all ...

After watching the movie I come to the following conclusion. Nia did not want to die. Transferring the tumor from the Connor's mother would almost for sure kill Nia. So, she decided to stretch the healing time (and by that live a few minutes or even just moments more) by first absorbing the blue veins wounds. But she got lucky, while she was absorbing the ...

Although they're not named, they're clearly working for the same (also unnamed) criminal boss who contracts Chigurh and Wells to hunt for the money lost in the drug deal. We know that since they've been given a receiver to detect the transponder hidden in the case of money that Moss has in his possession, and because they're taking Chigurh out to the scene ...

First, please notice that there is a difference between those infidelities: Frank has seduced a younger girl and had a passionate romance with her; he has done in consciously out of lust. April on the other hand just let herself be grouped by a friend for a few seconds, only because she wanted to be happy for a moment again, just like she was happy when she ...

Because he thought the commander was going to say he'd done something wrong. So his first instinct was to get in front of the potential rebuke and apologize. As it turns out that was not the opinion of the commander. In fact he thought it was great PR for the fire department,

Black tie is a very specific look, a formal designation alternatively known as a DJ [dinner jacket] in the UK & a tuxedo in the US. An ordinary dark suit is simply not an adequate substitute. Black tie… I haven't seen the movie, but from just that quote I would guess the clerk assumes Rob isn't sufficiently au fait with the subtleties of society dress-...

Maybe C realised that as soon as High T covered H, he saved the world in almost an instant. As in like T is predicting the future. So maybe he went to T’s office and realised they were the only 2 there and that is maybe how he knew T was the traitor

They are not named in the script. POINT-OF-VIEW THROUGH WINDSHIELD It is night. No other vehicles on this paved road. Our car turns off and rattles over a cattle guard. Parked on the other side is a Ramcharger. Its passenger door starts to open. Outside: Chigurh emerges from his Ford. The man emerging from the truck wears a Western-cut suit. MAN ...

The way I see it, Gambol just happened to be the guy to speak up first, and it just escalated. Let's walk through their dynamic in this scene: Edgy clown barges into a meeting full of crime lords dressed exactly like the wackjob who stole their money. It's reasonable for Gambol or any of the other mob bosses to put Joker down. Gambol gives Joker a chance to ...

Jewel's mother, Bobbi, had just complained that the FBI was removing her underwear from the apartment. Watson wanted to get a look inside the boxes to see if what they were taking was legal to remove.

He's referring to the boxes of "evidence" that the FBI has taken from Jewell's house. Bryant is not talking to Scruggs, he's shouting at the FBI agents who are carrying the boxes away from Jewell's house.

Plot hole. The brother showed Cecilia a photograph of a body with one arm outside of a sheet. It's presumed that the body is Adrian's. However, when she is shown the photo, her friend (who happens to be a police officer) also sees the photo yet makes no inquisition about Adrian's death. Clearly, that's not how reality works. So, this is a plot hole ...

Assuming you take the characters at their word, it would appear that the series of events shown in The Hunt were the first time they had happened. I think the fact that they had enlisted help from a serviceman (albeit a National Guardsman) indicates that they were inexperienced in how to do this. While picking out who to hunt, there also seemed to be ...

It appears the globe's axis angle has shifted and is continuing moreso. I believe this scenario explains each of the identifiable radical natural behaviors (changes) and the tragic results. Thus the scene at the end of the movie as more destruction results.

Why didn't Cobb just spin the totem in the real world to show Mal that she is finally back to reality so she wouldn't have killed herself? This is a great question, one that requires a somewhat lengthy explanation to answer properly but is definitely worth the read: Firstly, a totem can only be touched or held by its creator. Knowing what a totem's ...

Such an interesting question: let's ponder for a moment... Richard is an intense soul who loses his passion for the theater and love almost a decade after his graduation from college. In a sense, he is actively searching for something, not certain what. However, he ponders subconsciously seeking a focal point to which he can connect his "apathies." Lest ...

In-universe, Gambol is meant to represent one of the younger gangs, not the old-world Italian mobsters. He's seen as being more angry and direct than the other gang leaders at the table. They were all likely feeling the same way as Gambol, but decided that trusting the Joker was good for business. Ultimately they were all mistaken, since like Alfred said ...

The bank that was being robbed at the beginning is where the mob kept their money; the money that was stolen belonged to the mob. From the script: Bank Manager: You have any idea who you're stealing from? You and your friends are dead. And Gordon: My detectives have been making drug buys with them for weeks. This bank was another drop for the mob. ...

It is also the city where Luke dueled Vader for the first time in the ...

Murphy and the anesthetist are close friends. They don't appear close considering their opening conversation, but that applies to all characters in the movie - they are a little lifeless or distant. Had anyone other than the anesthetist noticed Murphy was going into an operation drunk, he would have lost his license. He is "lucky" because only the ...

Here's the scene. He shoots the North Korean because the North Korean fired a shot which hit the South Korean on his leg. So the multiple shots seem to be in revenge for betrayal, but it also may be because of a sense of power he felt in wielding a gun and being able to shoot without consequence (see Killology). The smirk on his face is just because he aimed ...

Little late to the party, but I'd like to provide my theory. I would agree with Toni. A Gamma Ray Burst could explain all what happened in the movie. First of all, the event doesn't seem to affect every place on Earth the same; the city where the movie starts is relatively unharmed apart the power outage. The news reel on the airport television states a ...

At this point in time, the two kids already know one of them will be gone by the next month. They know that their father has to choose. Bob tells Kim about the piano to let her know that he's the one who's going to be around to play the piano the next month. To which Kim requests for his mp3 player after he's dead. In short, the two kids are arguing as to ...

The attempt to prosecute Burgess failed because of the actions of the undercover cop Burgess was a careful murderer (as shown later in the episode). He was very good at eliminating forensic evidence of his crimes. So, after the initial murders, the police did not have enough evidence to convict him. Hence the use of an undercover policeman in an attempt to ...

The rest of the family do smell The assumption you make is wrong. There is a critical scene where the male child of the rich family notices the same smell on several of the Kims (the Parks at this point in the movie have no idea that the Kims are all part of the same family). The moment is significant and the Kims even discuss it as it threatens to expose ...

Park Dong-ik only notes how the father stinks and not the rest of the Kim family. Because the smell isn't that strong and Mr. Kim is the only family member that Mr. Park shared a car with. Mr. Park sits just behind Kim Ki-Taek every single day and the vehicle they're in has a fairly small cabin with no divider between them. When speaking to his wife, Mr. ...

Whereas a high frequency would usually shatter glass, often implemented to emphasize dissonance, the glass has here been replaced by a bird, something that can create high-pitched and dissonant sounds of its own, taking the trope a step further. It's also typical for the ogres - as referred to regularly throughout the films - to have a detrimental effect on ...

First rule of Hollywood: everything can explode Second rule of Hollywood: everything is better with explosion First rule of making fun of Hollywood: take any trope and put it in scenario not usually assosiated with it. Double point if you mix two that seems to be exclusive to each other. Hence the trope of Creatures of the Farce

A possible explanation is that Abin Sur was (artificially) comatose and not dead, therefor his ring would not seek a new owner. A second explanation might be that in this reality, just like many other things that have changed surrounding Superman/Wonder Woman/Batman that this is no longer a thing. This allowed Luthor to reverse engineer the rings making ...

Yes, that was part of his plan all along. Their initial meeting was planned. I don't know about 2013 but in the manga and original the hero was hynpotized at night to be sexually attracted to have sex with each other.

Gus Fring is a very fastidious and put together sort of man. He's very controlling of every single aspect of both his criminal and public facing careers. This extends to his control of all those who work for him as well. What looks, on the surface at least, to be some form of OCD here, is clearly far more nuanced and far more about how he's had to develop ...

Kenny Herzog's interpretation @ Vulture: At Gus’s unusually steely suggestion, Los Pollos Hermanos’ eminent employee takes repeated turns toiling away at the fryer until it’s glistening to his boss’s satisfaction. Lyle is, through no fault of his own, bearing the brunt of Gus’s muted frustrations. While Lyle furiously takes Brillo to basket in a tightly ...

Well, Joe had been locked in solitary for a couple of decades. If Adrian had been grooming Marie to be attracted to a certain kind of man, the right ingredients would be there for some type of chemistry. As far as the video, He was probably keeping tabs on Marie her entire life. Every place she ever lived was probably wired. Plus, there is the issue of ...

As far as I remember, visiting the Battleship New Jersey, there was plenty of ammunition lying around -- I mean the shells were there. I think they were AP shells, in that they were generally big lumps of metal, so, there was nothing that would or could explode -- hence, why there were a large bunch of them sitting around. In theory in the movie the ...

Cecilia isn't surprised to find the dog still there because she knows Adrian is still alive. She knows he is the invisible man. She goes to the house to look for evidence that he has the technology to become invisible - to confirm what she already knows. Maybe Adrian still lives there, presumably he still uses his lab. We don't know how far it is between ...

Because most likely she doesn't have the money (at that moment) Sara and Harry are quite poor - I don't remember if her source of income is mentioned, but it is definitely a meager one - she is a widow, so maybe a partial pension from her husband? A some sort of benefit? In any case, it wouldn't be much, and quite probably partially paid in food stamps, ...

It has never been stated how many invisibility suits there are, for all we know, there are at least three: Andrian is wearing one suit, which has been partially damaged by Cecilia during their mental hospital struggle. Andrian's brother is wearing a second suit, which is intact. Cecilia finds the third one, hides it and wears it to kill Andrian. What ...

I believe if Jamal had wanted to hit both those shots, he would have. There are two major points in the film that show his skill and his motivation to do so. Skill: Shortly after the Jamal transfers to his new school, Mailor-Callow, he gets into an altercation with another team member during basketball practice. The coach settles the dispute by having Jamal ...

A show on these kind of news networks consist of "blocks". Blocks are just the chunks of the show separated by the commercial breaks. They're designated by letter. A half hour show might have 3 or 4 blocks (A, B, C, D) and an hour long show could go up to F or G (or more!). How long they are depends on how long your breaks are and how many you have. ...

When the CDC realized how dangerous the pathogen was, Ellis Cheever—played by Laurence Fishburn—made the decision that only labs accredited at Biosafety Level 4 (BSL-4) could research the pathogen. Sussman’s lab was only accredited at BSL-3. Apparently, those levels are real https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biosafety_level

As I recall it was because Sussman was not working in a secure enough lab. Research such as this has levels of bio-containment A biosafety level (BSL) is a set of biocontainment precautions required to isolate dangerous biological agents in an enclosed laboratory facility. The levels of containment range from the lowest biosafety level 1 (BSL-1) to the ...

I believe he did. I don't have a solid reason why Cobb could count on Bill to find the keys. But there are a few clues that suggest it was planned. Cobb wanted to scare Bill and make him change his look. The only way to do that would be to have a victim see him and recognize his face, but if that really happened they would be blown. And if it was a setup, ...
