Because it is protocol. And it is protocol because it makes it less easy for a future investigation to "connect the dots". Suppose the garage gets uncovered by accident: then the FBI agents might discover this painting which depicts Elizabeth, and now they have a possible depiction of someone involved in this "spy lair". Plus perhaps they ...

Spoilers! After finishing The Tale Of Princess Kaguya, this was one of the scenes that confused me the most. It left me rather... unsatisfied, for lack of a better word. After being isolated from her old life, which she desperately wished to return to, I thought Kaguya might use her now elevated social status to save her childhood friend, Sutemaru. Or at the ...

As far as I'm aware, the movie didn't give a neat explanation for this, but from what we do know, it was always Parker's mother driving him to kill, and although Parker clearly enjoyed killing, we have to assume he wanted to continue his killing spree 'on the quiet' like before, just under the identity of Josh this time. Killing the family would only attract ...

There was nothing in the movie to suggest that only bad people end up in the Further. I read it as people who had lead a violent life or had a violent death. As Elise herself puts it in the first movie: The Further is a world far beyond our own, yet it's all around us. A place without time as we know it. It's a dark realm filled with the tortured souls of ...

As far as I think, Parker and the other dead's desire was only to possess alive people's bodies, escape hell and live again. But when everyone got to know that Josh was in fact possessed by Parker, Parker didn't find any other solution to keep him alive again only to kill anyone who makes an obstacle in his way.

An alternative view: after finally finding the Dragon Warrior, Oogway's final quest is done, and he could 'transcend'. But he doesn't. He sticks around... right until Shifu mentions Tai Lung's escape. And that's the only part in the movie when he's seen visibly shocked. He knew that he was only able to beat him with his secret paralysis technique, but now ...

The scene in the beginning is the clue. The two boys are playing at the lake, counting. Looks like they're playing "who can hold their breath longer". Suddenly it's quiet. And we see the surface of the lake form bubbles. Elias calls out to Lukas and there is no response. It appears that Lukas might have drowned. This appears to be the guilt that's ...

Peggy never loses this, in Season 1 she is new to the working world and the nuances of Sterling Cooper, however in Season 2 she shows signs of her maturity in her role and environment.

In that scene in Berlin .. Steven accuses Roy not only to be Hans but also to be a Nazi. Roy accepts that he is indeed Hans but profusely denies the accusation that he was a Nazi. Going by what he says and existence of any records that connects Hans and the Nazi's it would be fair to say that Roy (or Hans) was not a Nazi. However ... in the present day .. if ...

We've got to accept that Richard Curtis was not too worried about a consistent alternate timeline - after all, Ellie fell for Jack when he sang Wonderwall, a song she could not possibly remember after the world forgot Oasis. The divergence point is pre-Beatles - it sweeps up not just the word "cigarettes" (a name borrowed from the French town in ...

In the underworld, every criminal organization operates under the High Table and any act of defiance against the High Table demands judgement. The Bowery King gave John Wick a 7 round gun to kill a newly appointed member of the High Table and that is an act of defiance.

If he is not involved, what do these scenes imply? These scenes imply that Votto is involved in one way or another for sure. Also I would like to point out that the scenes were shown through Joe's eyes, as if we are are observing his thought process. so any conclusion we come to will be from his perspective. The movie does not point out saying this is this ...

Emma Brockes of the Guardian suggests that Mary's refusal to acknowledge her own magical actions (a policy she continues in Mary Poppins Returns) has an educational purpose for the children. What is it she teaches the children? Empathy; mindfulness; a sneaky determination to win (at the horse race). Tidiness. Not to gush. Not to worry, overly, about whether ...

I rewatched the movie recently with this in mind. I noticed after killing the first 2 guys, he tries to kill the 3rd but the gun clicks (it's really subtle). So I'm guessing he reloaded a few bullets to finish the last guy off.

It's low quality but you can actually see it in the clip before the White Walker comes in that, that particular Child of the Forest uses a spear to one shot a few wights. This only works because these are dragonglass spears, the same that Meera throws at that White Walker killing it afterwards because she hits it in an unarmoured spot. The reason it doesn't ...

There seems to be no official explanation but per the movie: TLDR (short) answer: Walking with shoes is not loud enough for the creatures to hear or distinguish. Especially outside in the nature where there are other sounds present.

The pieces are continuously carried into the past by Tenet, which eventually manages to invert, separate and hide all 9 sections in nuclear storage facilities as stated by Priya during the Oslo contact, with the future antagonists recognising that the only moment they would become vulnerable would be during the collapse of the USSR.

"Knowledge Divided" By the time TP has the Tenet organisation set up and the second (unseen) half of the temporal pincer is in place he will have most definitely subscribed to the axiom stating that 'what's happened happened', IMO he has already accepted this by the time the credits roll. There is nothing to suggest that Fay (his CIA handler on the ...

The whole motto of Baron Noir is to make all the leftists go together, and win. For this, for example the episode you talk about is called 1932. It was that year when the leftist parties in France gathered in a the Cartel des Gauches to win the general elections (they did not manage to form a government, but this led to the 1936 coalition that led Léon Blum ...

Warren was attempting to evoke a reaction from Bob to confirm his suspicion that Bob was lying. The film establishes Warren as someone who regularly lies and fabricates stories, e.g., the Lincoln Letter, to get other people to act, or react in a way favorable to him. It's in character for him to make up the story about the sign. Warren had been doubting Bob'...

Taskmaster is a "perfect mimic"; she has the ability to copy the moves of other fighters once she's seen them. Dreykov boasts that he had to install the chip to be able to keep Antonia (Taskmaster) alive, and that was when he discovered she could mimic others. Near the end of the film, Natasha breaks the mind control on her and she stops fighting ...

Everyone seems to be satisfied with TBrookside's meta answer, but OP's original point is badly taken.

Supplementary to ool: Upper-case delta (Δ) often means "change" or "the change in" in mathematics. For example, if the variable "x" stands for the movement of an object, then "Δx" means "the change in movement." Scientists use this mathematical meaning of delta often in physics, chemistry, and engineering, ...

Delta is how much the price of a derivative (such as a stock option) is expected to move relative to a small move in the price of the underlying instrument (such as a stock). It is quoted as a number between -1 and +1. For example, say a stock is currently priced at 200 pence and option to buy it in 10 days' time (a "call" option) at the same price ...

In addition to tbrookside's answer a logical in universe answer is that Jules and Vincent wouldn't kill anyone (important) until they have what they came for. You never know if the case is in the apartment but Brad hid the contents somewhere else for instance.

In short, other than the two listed daydreams, the rest of the story makes sense when true, and there is no additional narrative value derived from any of it having been a daydream. It's very common to find answers on Joker that play the "it could be a daydream" card, but this is in my opinion a cop out. Yes, some things we saw did not in fact ...

The identity of the gunman is not relevant. He's just a random guy. What is important is what seems to have brought this guy to seek out Thomas Wayne. Specifically, he is wearing a clown mask, and specifically quotes the line that was broadcast all over TV and made Joker an overnight celebrity: You get what you fucking deserve! The gunman shot Thomas Wayne ...

Firstly you have to examine what the ring is. It is an extension of Sauron's will, a physical item that Sauron imbues with his own spirit through magical means in an effort to not only make him stronger but to extend his dominance over other magical rings that are owned by the leaders of the different races of Middle Earth. The creation of the ring follows a ...

Pulp Fiction is expressly about the supporting characters in the background of classic gangster pulp stories - the henchmen, the moll, the boxer who is supposed to throw the fight, etc. It explores these characters but maintains the tropes of the genre from which they are drawn. One of those tropes is that when the gangster sends the henchmen to kill ...

The second directive prohibits robots from modifying themselves or other robots.

In many small towns, it occurs quite often where a Sheriff's Station may not be staffed 24/7. I even found a station on google where you might even need to call a non 911 phone number in order to talk to a deputy.

There are various explanations here but, the most concise answer is: because it is a trope. And a well known trope at that. Most of the answers to why it is seen are valid reasons that people in the past had for keeping their liquor in the bag, most notably the "legality" & "social acceptability" reasons. However in modern times it ...

There is a famous speech from the US TV show The Wire about this very issue. Video can be found here. Below is a transcript.

Nope, the consensus is that he's disintegrated. There are many time this is seen.

While this doesn't directly answer the question, the main reasons liquor is put in paper instead of plastic bags are: Paper bags are opaque. There is no label that says this is alcohol. In the US, every state, every county, and every city is allowed to have different subsets of laws dealing with alcohol. In extreme cases, if the law can see the container,...

In addition to the other answers, in many places in the US, stores are *legally required" to put alcohol into paper bags. So the alcohol will already be in that, and the alcoholic just doesn't take it out for the reasons mentioned in the other answers.
