He wanted to avoid retribution from the population of the city and thought the Mandalorian might prevent his escape. Lang was the lead strongman in a regime that had oppressed, tortured, and murdered many people in the city. He saw quite clearly that this regime he had been a part of was collapsing. The foot soldiers and droids had been defeated, and the ...

That's not a comparison. A pocket protector is sort of a stereotypical "geek" accessory. Like a pair of thick glasses with tape on the bridge, like Gilbert wore in Revenge Of the Nerds. He was basically saying Rennie was a weak nerd, and having 6 police officers gang up on him was overkill.

Having put my thoughts in writing, I now got something of an answer: Lang assumed that the Mandalorian entered a truce with some people, but not with others and that he himself would be a corner case. Further either he assumed that Mando would eventually decide against him or he did not want to take his chances. So by offering a truce, he tried to pre-occupy ...

Good answer from BestGuess, but I would just add this: The line is also a bit of a joke because while Yen appears to understand English, he only speaks Mandarin Chinese, which neither Linus or Danny understand. So if Yen was complaining, neither of them would know it.

I didn't see the movie yet, but it's full of intentional spelling/grammar errors: the title contains the 'duplicate word' Moviefilm the tag line 'Wear mask. Save live.' - even taking headlinese into account, that should be 'Save lives'. 'US&A' is probably just another intentional error. It even sort of reminds me that the word 'of' in 'United States of ...

Linus is portrayed as timid and sometimes whiny person throughout the movie. Ocean is simply putting his behaviour in perspective towards the person who is doing the heavy lifting: Yen, who jumps, dives, crawls, carries through lasers, vents and what-not. While the rest of the crew is mostly known for their soft-skills and eloquence. Also there is a saying ...

Very simple, why would the filmmaker have the character explain what he’s about to do if they can instead show the character actually doing it? The opening scene has established everything the filmmaker wanted it to establish, now it has to segue into the real action. An off-screen “what would you do” question immediately followed by an hour-long direct ...

For me, this is less a question of plot but of editing. To me the whole remaining movie is the answer to this very question. Weak evidence from the scene: the camera moves to a closeup for this last question, possibly to increase tension. Then there's a one second of silence, giving us time to ponder the same question. And finally, music sets in leading to ...

She wakes up in a bathtub away from the bed and with the clothes she had the night before, she looks towards the bed because she doesn't even know who it may be, I don't think she has had sex or is bisexual.

The clip in question can be found here: The scene is discontinued to allow the viewer to imagine all the witty ways that Ocean might reply to the question. The story of the movie is about a heist, so it is rather obvious that Ocean will fall back into the same patterns again. The more interesting question is whether he is ...

After watching this ep a couple of more times, I got it: Francis needs a majority vote in the Senate in order to pass a bill Francis goes under the table and cuts deals with a few senators so that he will get his majority votes The moment he walks in the Senate, Francis demands a quorum to be initiated at once; knowing Francis has got the upper hand the ...

Billy knew it wasn’t Georgie he was talking to because Georgie call the boat “it” and not “she” as he named the boat in the first place.

I watched the film recently. It's basically a mash-up of South American magical realism whose best known exponent is Gabriel Marquez and United States film noir, ie gangsterism in the Godfather style. The psychedelia is most likely a way of signifying magical realism.

Beskar is newly introduced concept, it's not in the original series. It's able to resist light-Sabres but it can't effectively the Arc-Light Generator which heats up the armour until the person it is protecting is fried.

They had just met. Earlier in S02 (E01, I think?), John called his mother from the airport in Paris, and she flew to Luxembourg to meet them, as John and Tom expected to be back in Luxembourg by the time she arrived. When she did arrive, everyone was still in Paris, so Tom sent Ichabod to pick up Bernice because he thought Ichabod would freak Bernice out. So ...

Donnie Darko is a surrealist film but done with Hollywood style. It's likely this is part of the critical acclaim it had when it was first shown, since its not often that Hollywood does surrealism. One ought not to take the events literally. Surrealism, for example talked about a dream-like world as a higher form of reality, in the sense of laying bare human ...

It’s been awhile since I’ve seen it but I always think of the ending as this; At the end of the movie the engine crashes into the house and kills Donnie which we know ends up saving the lives of a few people. Donnie laughs knowing he will die because whether it was an alternate unstable reality or just schizophrenic delusions, he now realizes the world ...

It's because of Oliver's fears. Oliver is from America, this poses two obstacles for their relationship as Oliver is 24 while Elio is 17. Oliver by American laws is committing statutory rape, and around the time the movie takes place homophobia is very prevalent on top of that homosexuality is considered a mental illness at this time. This can be backed by ...

Because in the books and maybe in the movies, if people go in the elevator shaft, it won't go down and if someone jumps or goes down while the shaft is going down, they will be killed by saws or maybe some other way, but it will never work and there are gates when the shaft is not coming up to stop people from jumping down.

If it can't be inferred through imagery (perhaps on a screen, TV, or newsprint) then it won't be known. This dialog is not in the script as written, but is in the transcript of what was actually said.

What we can safely say is that the voice is definitely the janitor's (old Jake). And it does seem that the very title of the movie "I'm thinking of ending things" is pointing to Jake's struggle on whether to end his life or not. It seems that the fantasy is the only thing keeping him alive and if Lucy ends things, he ends his life. This article ...

I'm convinced he knew of her true identity. I believe the reason he decided to let her be was because he had probably reported to his superior commanders that he had executed the entire Dreyfuss family. No way he would have reported that he allowed one to escape. Now, it's several years later and the country's Hero (the private) is smitten with her, and for ...

I can only speculate that the call was deemed 'not an emergency', in-universe. There is some rationale for that. The UK 999 system has a structure called Silent Solution for callers unable to speak, whether through disability or if trying to call secretly & must remain silent. If you know the system, for instance as an abused partner etc with 'prior', ...

I believe they needed Edith’s signature to complete the transfer of Edith’s estate. Lacking e-signatures bring absolutely sure of proper signatures was paramount. Account would be in Thomas’s and Edith’s name and he could draw on the account.

Plot economy Writers convey a message and write the plot so that audience focuses on that message. Imagine Caleb and Ava escaping together. A robot has just killed a human. Caleb knows this but he is in love with the robot. Also, Caleb is responsible, because he deliberately deactivated the security protocols. He also (unsuccessfully) tried to steal from ...

Adding a couple more ideas, just because I've been researching this question and surprised no one has brought these up as possibilities: Walter accepted David's ultimatum and decided to "reign in hell," joining David. Thus, it is actually Walter, not David. People often point to the cabin scene to prove it's not Walter, but he simply doesn't reply ...

Yes, the target of the acquisition had a poison pill in place to discourage a takeover. A buyout is an attempt to acquire a controlling share (>50%) of a company. If the other stockholders do not want the party to get the controlling share than a buyout is basically a hostile takeover. This is what Rachel's boss is proposing as a means of acquiring the ...

Efficient Market Hypothesis He's directly referring to the efficient market hypothesis. The idea is quite simple: the market has already priced in all available information about a stock into the stock's price. With algo driven trading, this can happen in literal microseconds after the information is released to the general public. Thus, by the time you ...

He did. But the suit wasn't built to save him. AFAIK he built his last suit to wield the stones and to at least act as a bit of "shield" for him so he can snap it without dying. If you compare the Banner snap and Tony snap, you could see Banner struggling to snap the gauntlet, but with Tony, he basically just snapped it before the power of the ...

Probably did Cleo and Beth have sex? It's open to interpretation, but my interpretation is that yes, Beth had sex with Cleo. At the very least, the viewer is intended to see it as a possibility, if not the only possibility. In the opening sequence of the first episode, we see only a dark-haired head in the bed, and Beth hesitates and gives a brief glance ...

The singers have electric lights that are shaped to look like candles. Buzz, like the other singers, starts with one, but takes another from the singer next to him and holds them up to Kevin's ears. The lights are bright enough and close enough to Kevin's ears to shine through them. Buzz then moves the lights in a manner that imitates the use of drumsticks ...

Unfortunately, the joke is completely visual. Buzz is holding his electric candle lights behind Kevin's ears so that it emphasises how large they are by making them see-through. He then pretends to play drums on Kevin's head using the lights.

I haven't seen the movie, but the words fiancee and flee tells me that they are getting ready to get married. I check the synopsis on IMDB and it is a movie about marriage. A quick answer to your question is the "presents" are gifts that you get when you get married. The context of her statement is basically, and I'm paraphrasing: We are about to ...

In the beginning of the movie, when we see all the clocks, there is a shot of framed newspaper clippings (the mansion burned down on August 1, 1962). Marty has probably read this at some point. Doc's address in 1955 is shown as 1640 Riverside Drive: Doc's house we see in the beginning of the movie, in 1985, seems to be the garage of the mansion: Notice ...

Adding to the previous answer which is essentially correct that Marty didn't knew the previous address. It may be because of following reason: The 1985 Doc Brown lived in a house which was way smaller than the mansion which Doc has supposedly owned back in 1955. Maybe Marty knew that the mansion was burnt down and Doc who was once wealthy went broke. ...

After that, no more mention is made of the ciphers. Technically that's not quite right. Although not specifically referenced as a cipher the whole point is that the book is a coded list of Geiger's clients (either for blackmail or the pornography). Although Marlowe does not break the code, he has possession of the list and it's referenced in the scene where ...

I wish there was more back story to these girls but if there is it would probably be introduced in an even lower budget prequel / sequel film. Eli Roth, I believe, is an amazing movie maker that wants his audience to focus on the horror of this film. My theory is he purposely paints a dull picture void of any true depth to allow the horror and terror to ...

He knows where Doc Brown lives in 1985. There's no guarantee that he lived in the same house 30 years ago. Indeed, it seems that he didn't, because once Marty finds his address, he has to (try and) ask for directions to it. Marty: Do you know where 1640 Riverside-- Lou: Are you gonna order something, kid? He wouldn't need to ask where 1640 Riverside was if ...

This point was addressed at the end of S05E03: Walt: I've been thinking about Victor. Jesse: Yeah? Walt: Yeah. All this time I was sure that Gus did what he did to send me a message.

The building they are in is the X-Con Security Consultants Office or the business owned by Scott and Luis, seems like a sensible place to go to try and find Scott and the mobile laboratory. As for how she found the workplace? Well it wouldn't be a very good office if no customers could find it.

First of all, this is the first time she meets this guy who she barely knows and he already shows her a life sized doll who looks exactly like her wearing a wedding dress. She's just really shocked to see this (and maybe a little creeped out?). (This isn’t shown in the movie, but in the musical the doll can move, that’s when she faints). Second, it’s the ...

I'll admit that I haven't seen the series, but let me just add that 'sealing a move' was common practice when playing with adjournments. That practice has disappeared, over-the-board games are now always finished the same day, but it used to be possible for games to be adjourned if they weren't decided after 40 or 60 moves. Wikipedia lists two common time ...

Vaako. Riddick's refusal to swear into the Necromonger faith causes dissent and assassination attempts. Vaako is motivated to become Lord Marshal and transcend. Vaako leaves him on "not Furya".

The 120/40 clock referred to for the tournament means that the player has to complete the first 40 moves in 120 minutes or they lose automatically. What is not explicitly stated in the movie is that there are time limits for the next sections of the game. 60 minutes for the next 20 moves is not uncommon -- so a five hour game is well within the rules. That ...
