Those are victory or kill marks. It was very common for tanks, planes and ships to mark their kills on both the Allied and Axis sides during the war. Image source The "Rising Sun" flags indicate the sinking of a military naval combatant vessel, the red dot flags are supply ships, and the pennants indicate merchant vessels. The half flags indicate ...

The 1998 junior novelization of Mulan implies a problem with the Great Stone Dragon itself. In the illustrated junior novelization of Mulan, published in 1998, it says: (Page 37) Then they [the ancestors] told him [Mushu] to wake up the Great Stone Dragon for the important mission. (Page 38) But the Great Stone Dragon could not be roused! Frustrated, Mushu ...

It's all a dream...so there's no real answer. I agree with Max's latent homosexuality in way... It's all Noodles making up a 'happy' ending for everyone - so to speak. He died in the opium den. The Hoods got him and killed him. Everything right before the old man hands him a drink, that's the end of the movie - and everything after is an opium dream.

It is a very interesting question, as some of Kat's experience during the car chase is not shown to us. We need to bear in mind that Kat has never been reversed during this entire scene, Nolan dressed her in red as a hint. Below is my understanding from Kat's perspective: Kat is led to the warehouse with Sator and Kat sees an Audi, in which there is a ...

You're right; it doesn't make any sense (unless we start manufacturing Mount Doom-type scenarios out of whole cloth...this movie about time travel, not magically indestructible armor). Logically we can conclude that's not the full story. Namely: The movie's oddly insistent "Protagonist" is not really the protagonist. In the bleak future, ...

Boris Khan wants revenge and also wants to become the king. That was their initial plan. The witch joined forces with Boris because she believed he would make a difference to people like her when he took control of the kingdom. If you kill the king by abducting him, you won't become the ruler. You have to conquer him. Otherwise, the next royal blood will ...

The first half of the movie Tumbbad(2018) revolves around the myth of hidden chamber and the treasure within. It's unknown where the chamber and treasure is. The only person who knew about its location was the grandmother who was cursed, aged beyond hundred, physically deformed and probably diseased too. She was kept in an isolated room in a an old house ...

I don't think those events needed to happen on the same day, but it sets up the events of the movie as a palindrome. In addition to the opera scene and the scene in Stalks-12 happening at the same time, the Protagonist and Niel discover the turnstile at the same time future, inverted Protagonist and Niel rescue Kat. And the Estonian chase in the middle of ...

Ok its very simple, Seaplane aka Alex played by Jonas was stuck in the game. The parents wanted to help him, it's not they can say " Hey come to the house and play a dangerous videogame, I have pizza " ( lol ).

This is quite simple if you think about it... Obviously it was not Wendy as she was the one who locked him in there and she also remained sane throughout the entire movie...

First of all, please note, that interactions between regular and inverted objects are inconsistent in the film (archived): tl;dr: Inverted things impact puddles and the impact propagates forward in time. Inverted things impact walls (and, apparently, people) and the impact propagates backwards in time. A non-inverted wall and a non-inverted puddle can not ...

Because this will-be-blown-up car has not been driven by the inverted protagonist yet. From the normal timeline, what we experience as the end of a sequence is the start of a sequence of the inverted timeline. Therefore, in the normal timeline, the end of the car chase is marked by the protagonist becomes the inverted-protagonist; who has not yet driven this ...

The inverted time physics in Tenet is coherent enough to support the plot but if you think about it long enough it falls apart in many places. There are plenty of funny things that happen that have a more or less logical explanation, an extrapolation of what time reversal would look like if it were possible. But many things end up as contradictions. When ...

David Chase accidentally let slip by calling the final scene a "death scene" in a 2019 interview with Matt Zoller Seitz and Alan Sepinwall, authors of the book The Sopranos Sessions: Alan Sepinwall: When you said there was an end point, you don’t mean Tony at Holsten’s, you just meant, “I think I have two more years’ worth of stories left in me.” ...

The Rouran leader Boris Khan wants a personal revenge, as the Emperor has killed his father, therefore Boris Khan wants to kill the Emperor personally and he wants a public execution so that everyone will see.

Saul, being like "Houdini" (Pinkman's words not mine), was able to save Emilio who was busted by Schrader in Breaking Bad Episode 1. Thus, it is conceivable that they had met then. Come to think of it, I think he saved Emilio twice (from the scene where Jesse said "When the going gets though you don't want a criminal lawyer, you want a ...

Adam wants to destroy the knot. He figures that the only way to do it is by killing the pregnant Martha using the energies of both worlds. However, for this, Adam needs everything to proceed in an untouched manner so that he can kill Martha at the right time, once she has conceived. But when he does kill Martha, nothing happens to the knot because an ...

Okay I must say this first, Claudia is not looping like we see in movies like Groundhog Day or The Edge Of Tomorrow. She is not an exception. Her memory is not cumulative. She ages like all other other characters in the series. Claudia lives her life once just like everyone else. While Dark is a causal loop, this is not an infinite loop where the looper ...

As far as I know, nothing can get out of a black hole, as it has extremely high gravity. (emphasis mine) That is the key; Cooper in the movie postulates that the tesseract of memories was created by some future extra-dimensional descendant species of current-day humans... a species that could travel the dimension of time as easily as any of the 3 dimensions ...

There may be better, more official, sources to answer this, but the X-File fandom wiki poses the following solution: The bounty hunter pursued Agent Mulder and Jeremiah to a bee husbandry facility in Canada, recovering easily from a failed attempt by Mulder to kill him. It is likely the reason the bounty hunter did not die from the wound was because Mulder ...

Out of universe, the writers needed some way of driving the plot forward. In universe, after the Triangle was re-assembled, she and the Illuminati would cease co-operating, and she figured she would be able to somehow wrest control of it from them, use it to bring back her father, and then destroy it, denying the Illuminati their intended use. This solves ...

The short answer: we don't know and the movie doesn't tell us. We don't find out anything that happens to Neil after the events in Stalsk-12, and so we can't know his reasoning for anything he'll do after that. By shooting the inverted round, he showed the Protagonist something he'd never seen before and effectively kicked off the plot of the movie—the ...

So how did they rig things so that the car would not be traced back to them by the police? It wasn't necessary. In the novel, it's apparent that the car belongs to Paulie so even when the police investigate (if they do being that they are corruptible) then the car traces back to the owner who was dead in the driver's seat. Clemenza’s wife knocked on the ...

The name of the episode is a reference to the film Thirty Two Short Films About Glenn Gould, which like the episode is an anthology of vignettes. On the DVD commentary they explain that they chose it because they liked the name. You'll notice that there are not 22 short films. We insisted on the name from the beginning, though we never bothered to count how ...

The woman leaving the hotel (decoy lady posing as Anna M) carried her bag on her right hand dropped down on the side. The CIA agent observed through hours of surveillance that the real Anna M always carried her bag on the hook of her left arm. He deduced (although, agree, by a long shot) that the decoy was not Anna M based on how she carried her bag.

The scenes are from Karate Kid III and Daniel isn't saying he ACTUALLY joined Cobra Kai, which did end after the first movie. He's saying he sort of went the "Cobra Kai" direction with a teacher who was akin to Kreese and the antithesis of Miyagi because of their falling out. So he's saying he became a Cobra Kai in spirit not literally.

According to Vanity Fair: The Calls Are Coming From Inside the House One clue that the young woman is a fantasy created by older janitor Jake is a series of mysterious phone calls that she receives throughout the story.

Your question is built on the premise that just because someone can't enforce their ownership, that they somehow shouldn't complain that they lost that ownership which they couldn't enforce. What's your basis for that premise? People can complain all they want, about whatever they want. Doesn't make them right, but doesn't make them unable (nor unwilling) to ...

Throughout the movie Frank was depicted as being the sole reason of keeping Hoffa alive using his connections and diplomacy to prevent any damage Hoffas demeanor had attracted to him. He was his bodyguard, advisor and his (last) friend. So it was to be expected that he would hold a grudge if someone were to harm Hoffa, as inevitable as it might seem. He ...

There's no explaining love... It's quite clear that Kay loves Michael whether he's a criminal or even a murderer. Kay said, “I don’t care, I love you, I don’t care.

Maybe. During the period where she either miscarried or aborted, Kay was under virtual house arrest under Tom Hagan’s supervision. Tom was ferociously loyal to Michael and would never have permitted Kay to go out for such an errand, nor given the necessary parameters would she have been likely to slip it past him (see point 2). Abortion was illegal in ...

There is a driver to that backwards moving car. As an audience, we could see from Kat's point of view that: when Kat and Sator are about to enter the warehouse where there is a time portal, Kat notices on the other side of the fence, an Audi car parks there and its driver has an oxygen mask. There are at least four cars involved: the Audi, the BMW, the ...

Rickert has connections. Moreover, he's considered to be exceedingly good at spotting valuable opportunities, and people are going to take his advice that into account.

Paulie_D nails it again. I'd just like to comment on this: It’s hard to see why either Paulie or Carlo would expect to profit from these plots, even if they expected to get away with it, as seems very unlikely under the circumstances. There is ample evidence that neither Paulie nor Carlo is especially bright. Paulie may not be stupid per se but his rank is ...

“My story” is synonymous to “The story of my life”. Offer an could have just said, “My time in Auschwitz at the hands of the Nazis was horrific. The worst one was the doctor. Let me tell you my story.” Or, more simply, “I was in Auschwitz. Let me tell you my story.”

I've asked myself the question and while there is no direct evidence, upon reflection I vote yes, because all the circumstantial and psychological evidence points to yes. There is, first of all, the extract cited by Paulie_D, where Michael insinuates that his father had (or ought to have) known: “You fingered Sonny for the Barzini people,” Michael said, his ...

Robb Stark's "true" motivation is exactly what he is saying in the movie. Starks are very simple, temper driven, quite exactly as Littlefinger said: "Ah, the Starks!

It was the oath that made all the difference: By referring to page 88 of his book, he proved to the doctor that he's Ray Breslin, who himself is the designer of the security, suggesting that there might be "something rotten in the state of Denmark". By re-reading the Hippocratic Oath, doctor remembered that he swore to protect his patients "...

Very likely not. Robb sent his men after Jamie with the fastest horses and his order was to bring Jamie back after Catelyn freed him, and this objective didn't change. Roose Bolton releasing Jamie was already a beginning of his tretchery and his conspiracy with Lannisters. Had Robb known this, he certainly wouldn't be celebrating Red wedding with him.
