"other changes resulted from the disappearance of the Beatles" Coca-Cola® has been around since 1886. We can be sure that its existence doesn't depend in any way on anything the Beatles did or did not do. If these weren't independent changes (Mandela Effect - Wikipedia), and the loss of Coke® is the oldest change referred to in the film, then perhaps that'...

This is just my opinion, but I think to Nina, Beth was a representation of her own future. After Beth hurt herself, there was a brief scene of her face turning into Nina’s. Nina then panicked and walked out to the elevator. Beth’s action was frightening enough but also I think it was because Nina was also picturing her (very) possible future image. She ...

Who's to say the cops didn't arrive moments after they left? Given that the average response time is 18 minutes to mass shootings, I don't think there is an issue in the movie's reality.

Yes, Landa knew who Shoshanna was at that time. The key hint is in the question he claims to have forgotten to ask. Landa is the Jew Hunter. He is portrayed as someone who finds everyone he sets his mind to finding, as someone who is very good at his job, at sniffing out every lie and enjoying it. He proves he has already done investigations into Shoshanna ...

I don't have anything to back this up, but it probably can be written off as the apartment being in some stereotypical bad neighbourhood, where no one calls the police even if there's a shooting. Or maybe it's a use of the TV trope Police are useless, since the story would take a boring turn if the cops turned up within 10 minutes and arrested everyone.

You are actually completely right. This is plot hole, probably because of rushed writing. In real life such a 'coup' would never have succeeded. Any and all transactions done in such a fraudulent way, would indeed be blocked or the ones that went through would be canceled afterwards. There are plenty of witnesses that can say that Bane =/= Bruce Wayne. ...

To add to the other two answers, shortly after this scene in the movie they discuss determining HOW MUCH they can interfere, and how to interfere with German plans, to hide the knowledge that Enigma is broken. The fact that Enigma was broken was kept a secret from almost everyone, with Alan's team leaking out what THEY chose for the army to act on and how ...

How is preventing this particular attack riskier than preventing any future attack? The answer is given at 2:05 in the video. If the British suddenly attack the U-boat: "The Germans will know we have broken Enigma." "They'll stop all radio communications by mid-day, and they will change the design of Enigma by week-end." The Germans will quickly ...

I presume this scene is based on a famous urban legend from WWII, known as the "Coventry dilemma". The story goes that, in November 1940, Bletchley Park decoded an Enigma-encrypted transmission revealing that a bombing raid on Coventry was planned for the 14th. The dilemma was thus: did the British prevent the raid, and risk revealing to the Germans that ...

The Show didn't elaborate it much and also show is not finished yet but source material did elaborate a bit: Below is the graphic image of one kid's birth with the text "...the ones who survived" (suggesting some died too): Also in from another panel: This shows that Hargreaves tried to adopt as many as he can but he got only seven. So there is a ...

There is no way to know for sure. We cannot even know for sure wether the meeting with the shrink happens before or after the scene with Joker running around with bloody foot prints. Letting alone to know for sure whose blood it is. The movie makes it unclear on purpose.

Here's my theory: There are always 2 timelines for 1985 (Not including the other 1985 created by 2015 Biff) There are 1985A and 1985B which have MartyA and MartyB respectively. MartyA's Perspective: MartyA is in 1985A and is speaking to DocA on the phone and DocA tells him to go to TwinPines Mall. DocA has no memory of meeting MartyA in 1985A as it ...

There exists no precise explanation of Yuri's almost preternatural ability to follow Henry Brogan's aventure. As you mention, the tracking chip wouldn't have helped Yuri to watch Henry's escape. This means he either had a direct access to the DEA's strike team's own cameras or watched Henry Brogan's house through different means. The latter solution somehow ...

I believe the quote you are referencing is: "Tell us a story," said the March Hare. "Yes, please do," pled Alice, and so the Dormouse began "Once upon a time, there were 3 little sisters. That being the case, Alice/Beth is Kate's sister but Mary Hamilton (played by Nicole Kang) is their step-sister being the daughter of Jacob Kane's second wife, ...

Did Holdo even know about Rey and the mission she's on to bring Luke Skywalker into the fold? Does any of the tie-in material shed light on her perspective? Since a large majority of the The Force Awakens entailed Leia and The Resistance completing the map that led to Luke to then recruit him for help, I would strongly think that Holdo (though there's never ...

Because he needed "Viking ash" to make the weapon to kill Dahlia. Where else they can get Viking ash? Do they have enough time to search? So Klause did what he felt right, burning a Viking to get the ash and first he is, not his real father and second whole life he tried to kill Klause so it was not so tough decision.

But he doesn't kill him and instead settles in for a pizza and cold beer on the ride back to his cage. Why did he choose a pizza and beer instead of his freedom? I feel like you've very much misread Jesse's response. He is in tears because he realizes that anything other than acquiescing to Todd will mean Brock's death. He doesn't settle for beer and ...

The importance of the scene in relation to El Camino is that it's Jesse finding closure with his old (Breaking Bad) life. It's not just Walt, we also see memories of Mike and Jane. The scene very much highlights a part of Walt's character that defined Jesse's interaction with him, in a way that Jesse now retroactively think he should've seen the red flags. ...

Why didn't the machine have that long beep that happens in other movies, when the person's heart stops beating? Most medical monitors have a "silence" and "pause alarms" feature. In this scene the "silence" setting would have been disabled but "pause alarms" setting enabled, which pretty much comes down to production design and producers wanting to have ...

I was watching this great classic again and I was asking myself that question too, before the scene of the kiss. I just say that for me, the conclusion that Fitts is a repressed gay is really accurate. If you see the scene and listen carefully to the dialog and his reactions to Lester's answers are quite noticeable of his sensibility to the subject. He ...

Originally the contents of the letter were a voice-over during the final images: Originally, in the first draft of the script, that’s how the story ended. With Jesse driving through Alaska, and you hear the voiceover of what’s inside of the letter. Aaron Paul elaborated further to TV Guide: That was the very first thing that Vince Gilligan wrote when ...

The movie was initially X-rated and banned in some countries. Perhaps some make the distinction between porn and 'porn with a point', tho the point may be too small for others to readily see. Here are two interesting review excerpts [I enjoyed reading them in full] that express the movie's trip to the dark side of human nature. https://www.rogerebert.com/...

Breaking Bad already showed us that Jesse was broken by the gang, hence him failing to kill Todd now even when he has the opportunity. It is even explicitly stated in an earlier scene in this movie that if Jesse tries anything, then Todd will need to visit Brock. Todd's death or disappearance would inevitably cause the same. As Alan Sepinwall writes: ...

According to TV Tropes: When Marlon Brando was asked what the movie was about during his 1979 Playboy Magazine interview, he responded, "Bernardo Bertolucci's analysis." Bernardo Bertolucci was the film's director. I take this to mean that even Brando himself didn't know what his acting was supposed to convey. For the record: Brando hated working on the ...

According to THR: The Walter White scene takes place within the space of season two's "4 Days Out", one of the most celebrated episodes in the Breaking Bad pantheon, in which Walt and Jesse's RV breaks down in the middle of the desert; it's one of their closest bonding points in the show, hence Walt's less-threatening-than-usual demeanor in the restaurant....

I will once again venture to answer a question about a movie I have not yet seen ( but I do have tickets for this Sunday ) First, let me start with a quote from Mel Brooks, one of the greatest minds of our time. “Tragedy is when I cut my finger. Comedy is when you fall into an open sewer and die.” There is very subtle difference here (I'm not being too ...

Would it be possible that they weren't there because of the snowstorm? Phoebe had to change most of her wedding plans due to the storm and only those who lived nearby came to the ceremony.

Was Jakob cured? The whole film purposes a lot questions and is full of supposition about the natire of Villa and the stones themselves, most of which are left for the viewer to interpret, except for the idea that Verena's body was able house the spirit or consciousness of Malvina and transforms into her by the film's end. Ghost of Lilia: He will not ...

As I (barely) understand it, it has to do with the gravity effects of the connected black holes and the effect it would have on the information. Information transmission is very limited, and apparently even the act of sending the information affects the mass of the black holes and decreases the message available length, until eventually there would be no ...

There are two limbos. Or two ways to enter it, depends on your perspective. Stealing from this answer, [Cobb] goes down using the machine to get Fischer. Here they both are aware of where they are and what they are here to do. Once Cobb dies [by drowning], he reaches Limbo for the second time (the opening scene). This time around he's died and ...

The rules for the time duration of each loop is entirely arbitrary. The parameters for size and duration of creation of a loop are unknown to both the viewer and the characters within the movie. The only thing we know as the viewer is that there is a separate cosmic entity that creates and controls the loops. It's pretty heavily implied that each loop is ...

Global season 2 spoilers! There is a key concept in Dark that you're somewhat glossing over. Time is not set in stone, and the bootstrap paradox can exist. There are many of these paradoxes: This already throws a wrench in our "normal" belief about timelines adhering to basic cause-and-effect rules. Causality is not an absolute in Dark. This means that ...

What are these items exactly It's a harpoon/speargun How were they (most likely) used to accomplish this murder in the film’s universe? The details, as you say, are not shown but it's implied that Cliff shoots his wife with the weapon either by accident (because the boat lurches) or deliberately. Esquire.com The film presents the question in a ...

Why was the wedding ring missing during the twist of The Sixth Sense? Why not? They needed to establish that he is dead and his wife is still holding up his memories and he needs to tell her off she was not second: You were never second So what's the best way to tell this? The wedding ring seems perfect. I don't recall it being firmly established that ...

According to IGN: This final scene isn’t the only sequence in the film where we see Arthur in such an institutionalized setting. Very early on in the film, as he speaks to his social worker, Arthur mentions how he thinks he’d been better off when he was hospitalized. The social worker asks him if he’s given any more thought about why he was hospitalized. ...

I believe the reason Gamora appears to Thanos as her younger self is because earlier in the movie when Gamora is telling the story of Thanos taking her and killing people on her planet, she's a child. Then at the end she appears to him as a child because it's that version of herself that experienced those events.

I would more or less guess at the fact that Thor, Loki, Hulk and co had just had a tough battle with Hela, resulting in the demise of Asgard, all the remaining Asgardians were more or less refugees as opposed to soldiers. The ones who could fight were exhausted from what they just did, both physically and emotionally (losing their entire homeworld). Thor ...

Although this is speculative on my part, it is my sense by the way that John conducted himself with Jack that he must have been apprised of the situation somehow, presumably by the pair besides Jack who knew of the music. And I think John, who reasonably is still as talented (iirc, he also painted and we see that he does that in the new timeline), accepted ...

Replicants certainly do have emotions - Roy Batty exhibits anger and ultimately sadness; several of them exhibit fear at being discovered and retired. However, they are relatively underdeveloped, emotionally speaking. Replicants are physically matured and "born" at full adult growth - they don't go through a childhood to socially and emotionally mature like ...

The question was answered, but one part of your question hasn't really been addressed yet: In one of the episodes of season 1 or season 2, Daenerys says Viserys is not a true heir to the throne as he got burnt. Why did she say that? Keep in mind who Danaerys is at that point in time. She is barely a teenager, pretty much raised by Vyserys' arrogance ...

Apparently it's pretty excruciating going through the time loop reset. Carl mentions this when Justin first meets him at his caravan. Carl seems to think it's better killing himself than be alive when time resets.

Yes It's not explicitly stated that Roy has been faking their winnings. However, it becomes a practical certainty when, in the closing scene, we hear that they have won tickets to Cape Horn where Roy and June are now supposed to be living. Wikipedia Waking up in June’s rebuilt GTO, Roy and June drive toward Cape Horn, and Roy's parents unexpectedly ...

Martin has made a point to emphasize that Targaryens, including Daenerys, are not immune to fire. Khal Drogo's pyre was more than just a cremation — Daenerys was burning the witch Mirri Maz Duur. This blood sacrifice, along with the magic of her dragon's eggs, created a perfect storm of sorcery that left her unburnt. And that's why she was the mother of ...

There was no mention of a specific station that Doug went to. Yes, the FBI had covered the city to not let him escape, but he still managed to, being in a disguise.

Minor spoilers if you haven't seen the full series and movie. It appears the direct influence of the crystal is not required for their longevity, as SkekGra the heretic also survived without the crystal. Looking at both the movie and the series, the crystal's power and essence seem to provide physical restoration, rather than just prolonging life as is. A ...

GGMG answered it pretty well but also there are official words about it. First, even in the novel, it was hinted as per producer: Barbara Muschietti told IGN that there was one key Richie and Eddie moment from the book that stuck with her over the years: "The scene of Eddie's death, when Richie is saying goodbye, and caresses his cheek stuck with me for a ...

You guessed right. The two big pieces of evidence is the token scene, which you noted, but also the very end of the movie where You're also correct in that this is a significant deviation from the book.

"Never fight a land war in Asia" is one of those weird aphorisms that is widely known, but on which nobody agrees who originally said it. It has variously been attributed to Bernard Montgomery (British General), Dwight Eisenhower (American General and later President), and Douglas MacArthur (American General). The line was in the original book by William ...
