Because the character had more important things to do. The character went to the ship to get Grogu, following the Force beacon call sent out at the ancient Jedi site on the mountain top in an earlier episode. In a universe very short on Jedi, uniting with Grogu was eminently important. Moff Gideon may have been important if he was free and getting away, but ...

It's been some time since I saw this movie, but from my remembrance, I believe that Grubitz had become suspicious of Wiesler much before the final search scene. There are several indications of the same: When Wiesler goes to Grubitz with his report (in a fit of passion after he (over)hears the writer, Dreyman, call the Stasi 'idiots'), he decides not to ...

Said character only had one seat in his ship. Of course he could have killed Gideon but remember one of the major characters needed Gideon alive. Also, maybe Gideon plays a role in season 3 and Disney needed him alive.

I think the unique design of the key combined with the fact that there was magic involved stopped Jack from duplicating or making a new key. He had the "drawing of a key" and theoretically could have had somebody make one for him, but again. A McGuffin does have to be there if it begins to exist. I think maybe Jack didn't know anybody to make a key ...

The Death Star plans/R2 when he carries the plans are the MacGuffin. They set the plot in motion and are the trigger for getting Luke involved in the story, but ultimately don't mean very much to the audience. Using Hitchcock's definition of a MacGuffin... "what everybody on the screen is looking for, but the audience don't care" ...then the ...

According to George Lucas in the commentary of Star Wars Episode IV, he claims that R2-D2 is a MacGuffin. The bit that @Todd Wilcox mentions regarding the MacGuffin needing to be, "insignificant, unimportant, or irrelevant in itself", is interpreted differently by different directors/producers so I wouldn't consider that a hard requirement on what ...

Let's start with... That's not Nick Fury and Maria Hill...as we later find out it's actually Talos and Soren who are Skrulls masquerading as them. Talos even says at the end of the movie Come on, Soren, how was I supposed to know the whole thing was fake? I mean, that was all very, very convincing, you know. The performances, the illusion, that costume, the ...

To diagnose and repair this vehicle, perhaps? I mean, they have this kind of vehicles that may need repair, therefore the need of an R2 unit

R2 units were known for their abilities of diagnostics and repairs. That would be important to anyone working with any type of machinery. This is never expressly stated anywhere in any movie, and even the scene where R2 was purchased never really stated what Owen wanted with it. However, this information is apparent by ...

According to this article: Imagine if Merrill Lynch had been smarter, like Goldman Sachs, a few years ago. The investment bank would have realized it was holding too many dodgy mortgage securities and sold them off to buyers who didn’t yet think the market would blow. Those clients might have then landed in trouble. But Merrill would have avoided a fire ...

Indeed, it was never Red John's plan to just kill Jane. I think, Jane was the first person that presented a challenge to him in an intelectual level. But at the time Jane was only a fake embarrassing acting the part on TV. Red John saw potential in him and instead of killing him, made sure of making him suffer by killing his family instead. From that point ...

It should be noted that the original book is significantly different from the movie so answers are unlikely to be found there. As for the movie, Wikipedia states In the year 2274, the remnants of human civilization live in a sealed city contained beneath a cluster of geodesic domes, a utopia run by a computer that takes care of all aspects of life, ...

According to Jon Campfens, co-founder of Switch VFX: During the sequence, Dr. Stafford Weiss discovers that his wife, Christina, has set herself on fire. He proceeds to push her into their swimming pool with a deck-chair to try and save her. Beau Parsons, one of our on-set supervisors, attended the shoot along with Brandon Rogers, a member of our CG team ...

She is pointing upwards with her fingers, alluding to the stereotypical slanting eyes of Easterners, while singing a very Eastern-sounding melody in mock Japanese. Something along the lines of: At the very end, she is imitating eating rice from a bowl with her fingers.

Last time seen in the show they stood there with the two dog handlers watching the fight: Then, one of the dog handlers came to help. He attacked Podrick (after Podrick killed one of the Boltons). The other dog handler was the only survivor (five Bolton men died in total) and he apparently disappeared with the dogs after the fight. Apparently, he didn't ...

Eh? He didn't want to. The doctor was a friend of John. Didn't want to kill him, so why would he shoot him? I dont think he ever got the idea of trying. Just as he did, the doctor only took out the gun so John could use it and fake the whole thing was forced.


2

Actually, he didn't kill him, but refused to help. Black Manta's father was trapped due to a shot from his own weapon, as seen here. His motivation for not helping was to punish him for killing sailors previously, lack of interest or he just didn't picture him dying.


4

Well for starters, when John first arrives he still has time left till hes a target. Its made quite clear just before this that you are not supposed to target him before the kill order is finalized. When he is attacked in the Library by the big guy, presumably the guy would not have been able to claim the bounty or would have been excommunicated also. As for ...

In the meantime, I did further research, and it could very well be a mistake. In IMDB, they even call it a goof: When Gabe lifts Kynette to the stalactite, we see that it's already covered in blood, even dripping, before he pushes him up, piercing him to death. The link is here. Now I am very disappointed. I didn't notice any of the other mistakes in this ...

Steve redeemed himself by protecting the younger kids and staying to help fight the Demogorgon. One of the most refreshing things about Stranger Things is the fact that they don't doggedly stick with people either being BAD or GOOD, but instead treat them like actual people. Yes, Steve was a selfish jerk and outright cruel sometimes. In most entertainment, ...

It isn't covered in blood. It's just the lighting, or the prop has been stained. To make things worse, we can view the red stalactite for a second or so, which is quite long. At least, it is probably too long to be caused by a mistake; therefore, I believe that there must be some sense in it. If it was a mistake and noticed in editing, it is far too minor ...

Stalactites are formed by the deposit of minerals over time. Depending on the makeup of the minerals, they can vary in color. To quote this article by the National Park Service: Most scientists believe that the color of speleothems are determined by the mineral content. Pure calcite is white and almost colorless. Iron and other minerals, as well as acids ...

Bear in mind, that I can only work with the screenshot, since the video clip is blocked in my country. There are 3 possible reasons that come to mind. It is a mistake. They inserted a clip with the fake blood on the stalactite before the kill scene because they forget to shoot it without blood. We can safely rule this one out, as this mistake could have ...

Yes, revenge was the catalyst, but there was also another factor: Northern nationalism. Robb's march south was unquestionably driven by the desire to avenge his father and overthrow the monarch who executed him; however, revenge alone is not what drove his separatist rebellion. After all, his father also rebelled against the king, but with the goal of ...

When Magneto first operated the machine, he was nearly killed by it because of the strain it put on his body. Because of this, Magneto needed a 3rd party, a vessel, to operate it. Magneto chose Rogue because she was young and easily manipulated, but also because her power is the ability (whether wanted or not) to absorb the powers of others. If Magneto ...

She was going to, but Henrik was too busy with corporate business and might not have been able to protect her anyway In the original story and also in both movie versions the problem was Henrik was too busy with corporate affairs.

I think the contribution of Lisbeth to Harriet's case was fundamental, if she wouldn't have provided the biblical citations and the connection to the female deceased it would have been impossible for Mikel to move forward. Actually when this connection was revealed to the policeman ("Oh! they were not phone numbers!!!!!"), he changed his mind ...

No explanation of the origins of blindness was given in the book. Quoting from this Wikipedia article: Blindness is the story of an unexplained mass epidemic of blindness afflicting nearly everyone in an unnamed city, and the social breakdown that swiftly follows.

I was also thinking about Lilith, she is represented by an owl, she is seen sometimes as an owl. And in a way Laura becomes this Lilithesque persona, if you have watched Fire Walk with Me. She looks like ‘Eve’ but she is much more seductive and destructive in truth.

If I remember the shots correctly (I watched this last week, but it's possible that I have conflated or misinterpreted things): Immediately before this scene, we see Lyudmilla tell Vasily (her husband) that they're going to have a baby, and we see her take his hand. When Prof. Khomyuk looks through the window, we cut to a shot (from Prof. Khomyuk's POV) ...

Firstly, I'm not so sure that this is a "very obvious thing". The Volkswagen Karmann Ghia ceased production in 1974, whereas Cars 2 was released in (and presumably, took place in) 2011. I'd expect that most people nowadays don't even know what a Volkswagen Karmann Ghia is, let alone that it was air-cooled. Secondly, think about how strange the ...

If you remember, Bobby Welsh (the guy in the wheelchair) told Veronica to just give the book to Jamal and forget about it. While not explicitly clear, it's implicit that Veronica was to give Jamal the book to erase Harry's debt, and then have Jamal steal the money from Mulligan. Whether Welch knew Harry was alive or not is never known, but presumably ...

No, I don't think so. It seems to me, he just wanted to get over it, by shooting a person for the (supposedly) first time a milestone was achieved, then pack thing and leave, nothing else to think. It seemed pretty plausible.

I found the "timeline explanation" to be a bit clumsy and thought it was a production mistake, so I dug a bit and found an interview* with Conleth Hill, the Varys actor, where he answered this very question!: I still wanna know how he got from lady Olenna and all the people in Dorne to Daenerys on the boat so fast. Conleth Hill answered: I don't ...

It's never clear exactly what the arrangement was, nor is it clear where the money went that Harry took with him. He's seen leaving the area after the explosion, carrying a black sack that presumably held the money. It also seems clear that Harry has shacked up with one of his crew's wife, as Veronica goes to visit her and notices Harry's flask on a table. ...

The reason why he stopped is because Luke was marked in the first place for his suffering, but after Luke managed to overcome and face his own fear, then that made him of no use to the Son of Loki, who no longer wanted anything to do with him.

I'm pretty sure its a data collection company that sells information to advertisers and marketing agencies. Its a virtual sweatshop of sorts. First to escape the monotony and gloom of sitting in a large dimmed room with dozens of other employees, the virtual glasses are provided to take the employee to his or her "cubicle". Then the next layer ...

Did Harry originally intend for Veronica to sell his criminal notebook ? Maybe yes maybe no. At the end of the movie, Harry say to Veronica : It's meant to be simple. Why couldn't you just sell the book to Jamal and come to no further harm? I'm not sure about this. Anyway I think Harry will further harm her in such condition: Harry rob Jamal 2 Million USD ...

Definitely to get caught. There can be no other reason. Obviously he had been planning this for some time, and he would likely have owned any necessary books, and in fact I would assume he had some sort of Liberal Arts degree. I could see him maybe borrowing something like "Modern Investigation" but not the rest. However, Seven is not all that ...

Besides the other reasons given, the reason Walter wanted them killed in the first place was because the payments to their families had been shut down, and he was concerned that this would remove the incentive they had to keep quiet. If word got out that they were being killed, that would give even further incentive for them to flip. Remember, they wouldn't ...

The most simple explanation is that Neil inverted himself using the local turnstile before waiting for the tunnel to 'un' collapse. Once he had gone back far enough he would have been able to use his knowledge of the battlefield to covertly position himself in such manner that would allow him to simply close the door on The Protagonist at the right moment (...

According to Carey Mulligan: But just how far her scheme goes, whether she ever harms any of them or what exactly the different colors of ink mean isn’t answered. “It’s just her record,” said Mulligan. “I think the colors don’t really equate to anything. It’s just her quite high school way of keeping track. And I think a way that kind of pleasantly ...

Along with others, I believe it was to avoid having the surviving witnesses be put in protection.

In the Blade Runner game from 1997 (which take time at the similar time as the movie), the player character can visit JF Sebastian's house.

One crucial fact you missed – granted, the wire is subtle like that – is that Omar sees Gregg's and Bubbles + the other informant from the detail talk near the Pit. Must be in the first couple of episodes. It was quite a rewarding thing for me, finally to get why Omar knew that bit of info. Was wondering the same thing as tall the first time watching 😀

All the trauma is forgotten and also all the hard work Jonas put in to prevent the traumatic suicide of his father. Without much discussion they all agree that Michael should hang himself.

Maybe, just maybe and hear me out on this one, Bob Vaughn could have been the Zodiac and based his whole plan around Arthur Leigh. I wouldn't put it behind the Zodiac to have already found a scapegoat before he even started killing? If the DNA didn't match Leigh, or the handwriting, maybe he was set up before he even knew it. A Molester who has somehow ...
