It's shown within the movie that when Adelaide is found by the parents after the incident in the fun house / hall of mirrors, Adelaide is mute. They visit a doctor. The doctor explains that after severe trauma, young children sometimes lose the ability to speak. That's actually just the doctor's diagnosis of what he thinks must have happened, when the truth ...

The souvenir is made of Adamantium, which Stryker wants more of for his experiements. As explained here: During one of their missions, while under Stryker's command, Team X is sent to search for and retrieve a mysterious meteorite - later discovered as Adamantium - from a diamond trafficking operation in Lagos, Nigeria. They attack a compound there and ...

That scene was filmed in Hong Kong, and the dining culture is different at small eateries. A server will sit customers in a manner that would fill up one table before moving onto the next table. So, you occasionally get random strangers sitting next to you while eating your bowl of wanton mee. I guess its significance is to highlight an instance of Hong ...

They do not escape on their own. They had help from other soldiers. Watch from 1:50:00

I honestly don't remember any of this from the original movies. Haven't you seen The Karate Kid Part III? Of course you are forgetting something. So did Cobra Kai continue after Sensei Reese's meltdown? Former sensei of Cobra Kai dojo, John Kreese, visits his Vietnam War comrade, Terry Silver, a wealthy businessman who founded the Cobra Kai and now owns ...

I did not watch the entire movie, but judging just by the scene, she seems to impersonate the desperation of the situation. The squad seems to be tied down and wounded in a desolate building surrounded by enemies. The lady just has enough of it and makes a walk for it. Is she mentally ill? Maybe, worn out by the siege situation. She simply blends out the ...

When flying a plane, it can be very difficult to identify specific things on the ground unless there is an obvious indicator of their specific location. When the thing you're trying to find is intentionally concealed it becomes even more difficult to find things on the ground. When you are flying in combat, you have to be focused on flying in a manner that ...

"Hangs" in this context means the boat veers to the left if no one is holding the steering. It's also a call back to earlier in the movie when he first shows the boat to his family. Oh, I got it, I got it. They taught me how to do this. It veers a little to the left, so you gotta hold on to it.

Why did the Germans try to surrender to the British under a white flag? They didn't. The British soldier is being sarcastic aand indicating that, since there is no way the British would surrender he is deliberately misunderstanding the German request and stating that he thinks it's the German's intention to surrender.

The real answer lies in admitting to yourself that it doesn't make any sense that Deborah would end up with Max. It lies in the interactions between Noodles and Deborah in the dressing room, in seeing the way the scene is framed (through a mirror, with her makeup on). The last time Noodles was with Deborah before, he was raping her. The exchange between ...

Earlier in the movie, Francis indicates he has a way that he thinks will kill Deadpool: FRANCIS: Fucking Wade Wilson. Of course, I'd wear a mask too with a face like that. I only wish I healed the same. Still. We'll put him out of our misery. On our terms. ANGEL: Right. And when he heals? FRANCIS: He can't. Not if there's nothing left of him to ...

Starbuck and her ship were resurrected, but the same resurrection satellite that resurrected the final 5 after their "Earth" was nuked by their own Cylon uprising. Her true remains, and crashed ship were found on the post nuked earth so it makes perfect sense. Why a human was resurrected? The 5 were indistinguishable from humans, so she got caught up in that ...

There is high likelihood that she survived based on the following logic. When they introduced Molly Brown to the story, Rose said "she would become known as the 'unsinkable Molly Brown'". This implies that Molly Brown survived the disaster in order to earn that nickname. So we can assume Molly Brown's boat was rescued. But guess who else was on that boat? ...

Anyways, I'm surmising that the surgeon realizes his wholly wrong diagnosis and somewhat reproaches himself. I agree. But then why did he bring up Sgt Dohun's threat, let alone a Lt that undeniably outranks a Sgt? Wouldn't a bona fide repenter just hush? For the reasons he gives in the immediately preceding lines: "Like somebody cheating in school. ...

Not only Ajax inteded to kill Deadpool. Deadpool was also fine with himself dying. Until the knife to the head Wade didn't know what are the limits to his healing powers. Proof: When facing Francis Wade says Let's dance. And by dance I mean try to kill each other

The plans were in that glider because the entire headquarters of Lieutenant General Browning, tactical commander (ie feet-on-the-ground-commander) for Operation Market (the airborne portion of Market Garden), was landing with the operation: that being the whole purpose of an operation's tactical commander. Do you somehow imagine that Browning and his ...

Well I have found my answer and it's directly from Alec Berg's Interview with Entertainment Weekly The episode — and series — ends with a cliffhanger of sorts as Richard is unable to find the thumb drive. What did you like about going in that direction? Was it your way of leaving the door open for a continuation in the future, or just more of a fun little ...

Apparently, the plan was way bigger then what we saw in Justice League. From CBR: As Snyder continued, he revealed that the Flash's warning to Bruce Wayne about Lois Lane being the key was central to this future. "Because Lois - and it's in the Justice League teaser; it wasn't in the movie apparently... it's this line where Bruce says, 'I was right here, ...

Well, I feel the thumb drive was stolen by Monica, Dinesh, Gilfoyle. Remember those two are running a "Successful security company" and Monica works for the "NSA".

I have never seen the sequel or read the sequel to the book, and I'd imagine they address it further there, but we should be able to get a sufficient answer from the film alone. In the voiceover at the end, Renton says Now, I've justified this to myself in all sorts of ways: it wasn't a big deal, just a minor betrayal, or we'd outgrown each other, you ...

Unknown but not Jian-Yang It's not revealed who (if anyone) has taken the thumb drive. I think the missing thumb drive is just meant to show that Richard still is not entirely in control, and there still is some danger than someone else may release the Pied Piper AI on the world. However it's very unlikely to be taken by Jian-Yang. Jian-Yang is ...

BBC Studios (formerly BBC Worldwide) are responsible for selling the broadcast rights overseas. This brings in revenue to fund the BBC. A mass-market show will bring in more money. Additionally, a show which is a ratings hit may be cheaper to produce in the long-run. If the show keeps getting recommissioned, sets can be reused etc.

Here's my in-universe theory. There were 7 names on Jane's final list. Knowing that Red John knew Jane very well (very similar to himself), let's go over each name. Bret Stiles - The head of Visualize. He claimed to know Red John and provided Jane with information leading to a present Red John left for him. He's very smart, persuasive, and has an affection ...

Because of her accent "you did this" is almost indistinguishable from "Hugh did this". She said this because in one of the first scenes in the movie it is explained that Ransom's real name is Hugh but it is only "the help" that call him Hugh, so that is name that Fran used. This explanation is also recapped at the denouement.

When the Bowery King says they will honor the excommunicado he is saying that they agree to adhere to the terms, much like when someone agrees to honor the terms of a contract. In the case of the excommunicado it means they agree to supply no assistance to John Wick.

He was being observed by KGB - you (and so did Legasov) could see an agent watching him from the car. If he simply left the tapes in his flat, there would be found and destroyed when militia/KGB would check on him and found his body. By leaving them outside, presumably in a place that his friends knew about, he was sure that they will be heard by a wider ...

This is simply a retelling of stories from those who lived through the raids. People who have been shook by them. It’s typical hyperbole that should tell how extreme the bombings were. To those who experienced them. Like earthquakes they shook the ground and its echoes lasted for days. Bombs of course have an immediate reaction and the resulting blast will ...

I assume you ask about Kubrick's "The Shining". We actually don't know. We see only end result as a sign of madness. BUT if you look closely at the first scene when see Jack writing anything there is a very, IMHO, important discontinuity. Wendy approaches Jack, he speaks through his teeth and shred the paper. Then we see a fresh, blank page in the ...

It's to show that she still despises him. And doesn't wish him well on his journey and that he will have to drink her spit to survive. She is spitting in his face. And he has no other choice than to take it.

Yes, there is an explanation for that. Dr. Mann was in some kind of hypersleep. This is apparently an established technology in the film. You can see Cooper and the rest of the Endurance crew enter hypersleep during their 2 years of travel from Earth to Saturn. It is also mentioned that Romilly could have gone to hypersleep, too, but chose not to anymore at ...

I guess I'll turn this into an answer, though I think Flater gave a pretty good answer to the actual question as posed. I don't want to dig too much into the first question. I'm not sure if they could use the documentary in a legal situation; but I would definitely be reluctant to go back on a verbal contract when it was recorded on video; regardless who ...

What's to stop Dunder Mifflin from changing the agreement? What's to stop Dunder Mifflin from changing the agreement even if either party takes notes? The note taking doesn't make a difference. The only thing that matters is the contract that TMPC and DM sign - which doesn't happen on screen but there is no reason to believe that the contract was any ...

This is likely done to show that the family doesn't care to remember where she is from; they only care that she is from somewhere different from them. Their ignorance about where she came from is one of many examples of the family seeing Marta as "the other"; they believe that she is not one of them and doesn't deserve Harlan's inheritance even though the ...

This is one that has nagged at me forever... Maranzalla would never have allowed zero returns from that neighborhood, and would have dispensed his best thugs to find the killer. To see the true genius of this movie, you must disregard slight minutia of human actions. Vito would have been taken care of very easily, and a new extortionist would have taken ...

Tracking fobs are not yet explained in-universe. But the guild uses them to track down the targets. Other targets from the first episode also were tracked with the same device. The Child was also tracked with it in the second episode, before the procedure. I don't think that they are based on an implant - if someone can find the target and implant them, they ...

I don't have the script to hand, but General Yamori recommends Captain Iijima as "a man we can trust" when ordering the surveillance of the Admiral. This tips Kido off that the General has probably had Iijima carry out some similarly questionable actions in the recent past.

GPS is only one of several methods used by the Royal Navy and the British military in general to determine location, and military personnel are trained not to rely solely on GPS. Ships, in particular, as well as vehicles, also make use of inertial navigation systems. These are not as accurate as GPS, and need to be recalibrated fairly frequently, but if ...

Given that the note is anonymous, the best way to establish authenticity is to locate and speak to the mother, to confirm the child is actually missing. If she says, 'Yes, it's true' - He's confirmed authenticity and can proceed by asking for further information. If she says, 'No, it's not true' - He can mention the letter and question May Morrison about ...

I'd interpret this as a simple metaphor. The first transmitter on his leg was a decoy; he knew that once they found it, they wouldn't think to look for any more transmitters, and so he was able to smuggle the real transmitter past them. He showed them one tooth (the fake transmitter), and while they were distracted by it, he bit them with the other tooth (...

The screenshot above indicates that the stealth ship is visible to the naked eye to someone on HMS Devonshire. The screenshot indicates that it's visible to the movie audience. The ship is only visible to us for storytelling purposes In this case we, as the audience, have a better view that any watchkeeper. In the dead of night seeing a black or dark grey ...

What part of the journal made this transition in misinterpretation? It has less to do with the journal itself, and more to do with the publisher of Rorshach's journal, the New Frontiersman, being a right-wing, racist publication. This appealed to like-minded people. Quoting documents from Peteypedia, which elaborates further. Peteypedia is an HBO website ...

I always thought maybe she had taken some medication to induce an overdose or something based on the conversation with Gilbert before her death. Arnie found both parents dead. Such a sad moment in the movie.

Based on what I can read in your first version of the question, it is not that K was deceived and betrayed, but the whole world of Blade Runner 2049 is described as full of deception and betrayal. So other people betray each other very often on a daily basis, and that's just it. After updating the question, the answer to the first quote is that the spiral ...

The Indian Penal Code has a section about disclosure of identity of the victim. From indiakanoon.org, [228A.

Cap goes back to the forties to replace the first stone, then lives a quiet life with his girl, replacing the stones as time goes on. This doesn't create a new time line because he doesn't change anything. He has to go totally unrecognized for this to work. So what about Mjolnir? This means that from the 40s up to Dark World, there are 2 Mjolnirs, and ...

As per IMDB, Luther sympathizes with Ken: Prime suspect is Ken Barnaby, who was plagued by Cass with taunts over his dead daughter but Luther feels sorry for him, warning him of likely arrest which spurs Ken to take extreme action. Luther is well known to go by his own compass more so than the rulebook. He didn't feel like Ken deserved to be arrested and ...

I agree that this sceen seems to make little sense. I was yelling at the screen as I was watching it (I was at home, thank you very much). Upon further reflection, however, I have concluded that the scene was intended to demonstrate the self-loathing that some degenerate gamblers feel. It usually stays buried deep, but sometimes an event will cause it to ...

According to the plot synopsis on the movie's Wikipedia page: However, as Ray drives away it is revealed that he is experiencing visual hallucinations from psychological trauma resulting from the incident earlier that day. In reality, Peri died from the fall, and Ray accidentally killed Joanne after pushing her. The trauma of realizing he'd killed his ...

For me, I always understood it as he had completed everything he needed to do in that life... and so at last, he is able to rest. In peace, without fear nor worry. Cosette has found a man who he knows will love and protect her, taking from him that responsibility, one that he volunteered for of course (one that he changed his life for and that gave him ...

Bullet proof vest cover front (and some back) part of the body. And they are (when not made out of really stab proof material) very pierceable.

Broken bottle have many ...
