I watched "the birds" many times growing up. I always sensed the movie was a statement about humans and their destructive abuse of the environment. The attacking birds saw the love birds in a cage as the final straw. Time to fight back! At the end, the birds showed compassion on the couple, child, and caged lovebirds because the point had been made....

El Camino does not show Jesse escaping from Todd because the final episode of BB shows Jesse killing Todd while escaping.

Jesse's escape was a central part of the climax of the finale of Breaking Bad. The story of El Camino is not about Jesse escaping physical captivity, it's about him coming to terms (as much as possible) with those he hurt and those he lost, before moving onto a new life far away from Albuquerque.

The entire film series is (arguably) about identity, doubt and self discovery. It's also about fighting forces you don't understand alone - versus as a part of a team. Alice's initial discovery of her situation in the mansion with amnesia, and subsequent ambiguous and frightening discoveries, that lead her to a better understanding of her own past and it's ...

The TV show has significantly altered the timelines from the books. You can no longer assume the Crows timeline follows 2 years after the Sun Summoner timeline, and therefore work out that they should only be 14-15 years old. When creating the show, they took aspects of the Crow storyline and merged it into Alina's story, including making the heist all ...

There is a paradox going on here. We need to start from some assumptions to see it: Volkov's bullet and gun is not reversed, from Volkov's own perspective the bullet is shot out of his gun into Neil's head. Let us look at the event from the forward perspective: TP and Ives get to the hypocenter, door is locked. Volkov reaches the hypocenter from another ...

Adam Banks is the one who dives in front of the net when Julie "The Cat" Gaffney is out of position from saving an earlier shot. He stops the puck from going into the goal with his chest. Happens 1 hour and 36 minutes into the movie. You can see it's Adam as the player has the #99 jersey. https://disney.fandom.com/wiki/Adam_Banks Adam’s jersey is ...

There are 2 different timelines at play here. Let's call Marty1 the Marty that we know and love. He goes to the past and creates timeline 2 and changes a bunch of things which are now part of a new timeline. People from his timeline now are not the same and may not even exist. Which is why the people in the picture are disappearing. Luckily Marty1 doesn't ...

"It is written" is a (often religious) concept that everything/most things are pre-determined and already written in the book of fates. It teaches people humility in face of failure and takes the blame from the individual and places them in the context of a greater plan. It also teaches humility in face of success, because it is not part of what ...

During the Cold War (and still today) the USAF had the use of many airbases in NATO countries. These bases are large facilities with thousands of residents, and in many cases the base (or the American portion of it) is economically separate from the “host country.” It’s possible for the children of the personnel posted there to go to school, eat out at a ...

The movie does not seem to show Paterson deciding on a back up methodology. Maybe he will, because he respects Laura's opinions and ideas ; but it is not that important to him. Why does Paterson writes poems? If you think about that, you might understand why the topic of copies of the poems, is maybe not a major interest of the movie.

It's a plot hole, but one you shouldn't look too deeply into. There is no Marty1 & Marty2, there is a single Marty. It's convenient, though, to use them as placeholders for which timeline we're talking about. What you think of as Marty1, who comes back 10 minutes early to see his former self as Marty2 simply cannot happen [or might be extremely unlikely],...

As you say, Marty - let;s call him Marty1 - returns 10 minutes before he left, just in time to see all the events play out as from the start of the movie. However, despite the fact that what he sees matches the start of the movie, what we soon find out is that the timeline that he has returned to is a very different timeline from the one that he left. In ...

The queen did help; she offers compassion (in the moment of her own personal peril) lifting the horse would not have saved her life.

Marty that traveled to the past arrives back in his originating time to see himself time travel, but that Marty doesn't travel again, he wakes up the next day at the end of Back to the Future. He is not the Marty in the Delereon dissappearing to 1955 he is the Marty watching.

In the beginning Doug departs the base and passes a sign that says “Beecher Air Force Base” this is a fictional location. The Stateside scenes around the Air Force base were filmed at Camarillo Airport in Oxnard, California. In real-life, Camarillo Airport was itself a U.S. Air Force base, going by the name of Oxnard Air Force Base until its closure and ...

What exactly is Frank's play here? He is overstating the value of the gift to his "marks" to make them do as he wants. Both Frank and his father say "I think it has slipped off your neck" showing the targeted woman a golden necklace. It doesn't mean that they expect their target to say "sorry, it's not mine" (and then Frank ...

Well now, one of my all-time favorite movies, The Ninth Gate (1999), and the short novel it is based on, The Club Dumas.

Shu refers to the Shu Han, a nation and people to the south of Ravka, the country where most of the scenes in the show are set. In the books, Ravka and Shu Han have been at war for centuries. Grisha are not 'a race' in the show but humans that have the ability to exercise the magic, called 'Small Science' in the books. Grisha are found in multiple nations/...

The key to understanding this is the brief glances we see of the file's content The hacker originally could not find out much about Hutch and Yulian was a little unhappy she didn't find more data and failed to recognise "a wolf in sheep's clothing". So she exploited her connection at the Pentagon. We see his attempts to get the data. His first ...

This isn't explained, even in the script: West, exhausted, turns and sees... METAL HEAD all seven feet of him. The top of his head is a metal plate. Extending downward, encircling his eyes. West soaks him in, sighs. WEST Uh, I just threw my shovel out. So this really isn't fair. If ...

inside metal head is electricity so when west gave him metal bar meatal head touched this metal bar with his both hands so his electricity killed him.

Although the director Gilliam has himself said that he wanted the film to be ambivalent and to be about perception of the reality, I would like to amplify on his statement. I see this flim as an exploration of the psyche of a really sensitive little boy who was traumatized and somewhere along had to be put in a mental asylum. James Cole, a little boy ...

From the Wikipedia entry for this film. The movie's high-living Italian producer, Enzo (Giancarlo Giannini), not intimately involved in the production shoot but still subtly fatherly and supportive, guides Paul that “the ending is the most important part of the movie, the part that people remember when they leave the theater.” He tells Paul a good ending ...

Once she gets a look at Hutch's file it's obvious to her that he's an incredibly dangerous person. As Wikipedia explains Hutch is a former "auditor", an assassin employed by intelligence agencies to kill people who were considered untouchable or too difficult to arrest He's not someone you want to be on the bad side of so she quits and makes a ...

Someone on Reddit asked Ari Aster about this in his Reddit AMA: The more I think about it, the more it seems that Annie’s actions while “sleepwalking” are directly opposing the resurrection of Paimon. For example, the whole thing with the paint thinner; killing Peter and Charlie ruins the cult’s plans for Paimon’s human host, and by killing herself, Annie ...

Watching the film again this past month, I have to disagree with the statement that “nothing in the film implies that she stages her death as Michel had staged his.” Just as Michel & Nicole cooked their scheme off screen, there’s enough evidence to suggest that the retired detective, Alfred, and Christina could have cooked their own scheme off screen as ...

Why did they even make that deal? Well, "they" didn't—he did. Traditionally, the task of ferrying souls would be considered a curse. (Look at, e.g., the 1921 Swedish silent movie "The Phantom Carriage" or Ray Bradbury's "The Scythe".) But in the Pirates movies, the agreement seems to have been that Davy would do the task for ten ...

I just re-watched this episode. When the Secretary of Health calls at 38:00 the photo she emails to Doug has the father who died because he got bumped to move the President up the list. The son in that photo look a lot like the Danny that killed himself. Maybe they didn’t have the last name....

Speaking from memory (haven't watched the film from a number of years), I recall the film had a relatively strong implication that the Humans are projecting onto the bugs aspects of their own collective behavior. One of these aspects is being the aggressor in the conflict. Now, the film is presented from a conformist/mainstream Human perspective, so you won'...

The only evidence given is that the meteorites apparently originated in the Klendathu region of space. This is true BUT we do know that the Bugs are spacefaring since they have colonised other planets in the Quarantine Zone. Thus although we do not know the mechanism by which the bugs transport the meteors completely across the galaxy it's not impossible ...

At that close range, both sides know if they open fire it's a death sentence. Each side was trying to get the other side to surrender in order to avoid the certain carnage of machine guns at close range. No one really wants to die in a war, and if it can be avoided then they will find a way.

In my view the scene is supposed to show you that Miller's Men are surprised and exhausted. They are either not prepared for such a situation or not willing to make a kill (it appears that the machine gun does most of the killing while everybody else jumped to the ground). It also shows that the other side is not that much different from Miller's Men. They ...

The One Ring has corrupted Sméagol into Gollum, turning him into a mere servant. The One Ring is everything Gollum holds valuable. Frodo cunningly uses this against him by making him promise his loyalty by the Ring. Gollum naturally has no reason not to make the oath, as it is the only way to prolong his proximity to the artifact. And as it turns out, the ...

In the book, it explains that right before she wakes up from her coma she remembers stuff and telepathically (through Thomas's mind) says to him everything she remembers, her name, Thomas´s name, and more.

One, the writers most likely didn't want it to go down like that because they would want the team-up in the end. Two, Harry was watching the, so she couldn't or he would know what happened. Peter (with the symbiote) discovered that he did something and decided to attack. The script to this is in Spider-Man 3 Transcript Wiki|Fandom. https://transcripts.fandom....

You missed the main point of the movie. They took time to explain that this is not Back to the Future. You can't change your own past. By going back to the past, the team created 4 alternate timelines). Time is definitively changed in those timelines. (I hope the future "What if" show will explore some of those timelines). You might be able to set ...

In an interview with Connie Nielsen (Becca Mansell), talking about a sequel, she makes several very enlightening remarks: Hutch proves quite equipped to handle himself in hand-to-hand combat with criminals, thanks to his military training. Nielsen said Hutch's wife, Becca, has some secrets that Nobody didn't reveal. Hutch told his family he was an auditor ...

I only have a fan wiki to go from but... In short, only one side of the curse could be broken, making the other side permanent.

Because she knows the truth Roy's father kill her fathers.

Inverted-Neil, from his perspective, opened the unlocked gate, entered, held the gate open, then locked the gate, unlocking it for the non-inverted/forward TP and Ives. He then died after being shot by Volkov after unlocking/reverse-locking the gate. In the scene where Neil got shot, we see the gate latch or bolt moving (shown for around one second only) ...
