As you have mentioned, It appeared that this village is still being held by Germans (albeit not many of them) who are now effectively behind enemy lines, as the Central powers had retreated, and the Allied powers were advancing British soldiers were not completely sure that Germans were retreating. That's why they even held lines from where Blake and ...

It is deliberately left unexplained by the show creators [to possibly give her character a comical/amusing end]. In an interview with TVLine, executive producer Alec Berg, who wrote and directed the last episode of the series, had the following to say in relation to Laurie Bream's imprisonment: TVLINE | Laurie Bream is in prison. What did they get her ...

There's no doubt that the 60s scenes are Noodles while he is dreaming/drugged up. I think there is an extra layer to this movie that I haven't seen anyone discuss. Why the frisbee? Why the garbage truck at the end? We all focus on the visual of the frisbee and the truck. Instead, focus on the sound. Why? Because while Noodles is dreaming, the world around ...

Joachim gives two satisfying answers already. However, I would also add that Mousesack is not a mage but a druid and traditionally the druids have a lot closer relationship with nature and do themselves tend to live in confined groups away from modern human civilization. I don't quite remember from the books if there is a direct friendship between the ...

Depends on the weapon honestly. In order to know if he did it on purpose or not you'd have to know if the gun recoiled before or after the bullet exited the chamber. If the weapon recoils after the bullet exit's the chamber, than it is fairly easy to place a shot where you want it. But if the weapon recoils while the bullet is exiting the chamber even the ...

As mentioned by BCdotWeb, the song is a well known gospel/folk song "The Poor Wayfaring Stranger" which talks about the difficulty of life and the hope of a heaven beyond. The lyrics would be very appropriate for anyone looking death in the face, especially during a battle where one is on the front line, as was the case of the men in the movie. They were ...

It is "The Wayfaring Stranger" a well-known American folk and gospel song [...] about a plaintive soul on the journey through life. Judging from the lyrics it seems rather appropriate for the situation those soldiers are in.

There are two different questions in your question. 1. Why did Will trade his medal for wine? The answer to this is clearly given by Will. Will: I didn't lose mine. Blake: What happens to it then? Will: Why do you care? Blake: Why do you not? Will: I swapped it with a French Captain. Blake: Swapped it?! Will: Uh-huh! ...

Will earned his medal fighting in the Somme, over a million men were killed or wounded during the fight making it one of the bloodiest battle in human history [Wikipedia entry]. Medals are often prized by soldiers but he comments that "its just a bit of tin". To him the medal is meaningless, he doesn't take pride in being a part of that battle and would ...

Just to add on to iandotkelly's answer, While it appears that The Child is a separate character to Yoda, as The Mandalorian season 1 takes place 5 years after Return of the Jedi and Master Yoda's death, Star Wars: Rebels introduced time travel with The World Between Worlds, in which Ezra Bridger was able to enter through a portal on Lothal and where he ...

I am not gonna lie, I don't think that you will get a satisfying answer to your question. I guess the reason is that it is a top secret mission and they don't want to take the risk of the transmission being intercepted or anything. Also, he does not send only one message, but does it every day for quite a while before getting an answer.

I doubt it's a mistake. There are close-up shots of the gun where you can clearly see that it's a 5 or 6 shot revolver. In fact, IMFDB identifies it specifically as a Smith & Wesson Model 36, which holds five shots. I think the most likely explanation is that Arthur is an unreliable narrator. Arthur suffers from various unspecified mental disorders, and ...

I've not watched all of the Mandalorian yet, but I think you are misunderstanding two things: The Mandalorian is set shortly after the events of the original trilogy of movies, after the fall of The Empire, as shown in Return of the Jedi. Wikipedia states 5 years after the fall of the Empire. You see some Stormtroopers in battered armor, and statements ...

EVERY one knows the original ending of Fatal Attraction is Alex kills herself. No boiled bunny. No drowning. No wife shooting the harlot. She dies. Now, reading an article I see someone says "stalking Dan at work, calling him at all hours, faking a pregnancy, stalking his wife Beth at her place of employment, even picking up Dan and Beth’s daughter ...

Let's look at this in chronological order. First of all, Ethan has no idea what Kittridge is referring to. Job 314? Sounds like a number. He begins searching Usenet. Why? That's not explained either, but as others have pointed out, the Internet was new and mostly a mystery when this movie came out. In fact, in the Sandra Bullock vehicle The Net, they ...

The simple answer is that she needed a patron to allow her to act. Max had the money she needed to live the lifestyle she wanted. Max would exchange the money for sex. The son was probably a mistake. Neither of them wanted to disrupt their life, so they told the kid his mother died at childbirth. Remember when he knocks on her door he doesn't call her ...

The episode with Stella's and Ted's (cancelled) wedding (Shelter Island, Season 4, Episode 5) where Barney (probably) has a threesome is after the episode about the belt (Third Wheel, Season 3, Episode 3) where Barney tells the story about his failed attempt at a threesome. So there are no mistakes in the timeline of the show.

There are a few misconceptions and assumptions in the question. It's unproven that there was a second girl in the bedroom during Ted and Stella's wedding. I don't remember this implication, having watched the show multiple times. Even if there was a third girl, the Bro Code stipulates limitations to "the tricycle". If any of these rules were violated, it ...

It seemed to me she was just as evil as the previous leader. This seems very debatable to me. We don't see Vera Walker engaging or promoting any violence. She just seems to be a worrying mother and a bit of a control freak. The only thing "evil" she may have done was poisoning the previous leader, Lionel Jeffries, "the Beacon", and even this is only ...

Well either Max is a liar or the screenwriters didn't understand what they were doing because Max tells Ethan that Job never used script to communicate (so the bible is not needed) and that that's how she new she was dealing with someone else (Ehtan did use bible quotes)

He caught him off-guard. Alfred likely felt fairly safe behind the gate. He probably didn't expect Arthur to be able to reach through the bars and grab him, or he would've stood further back. You say that Arthur "spared him ", but I don't think he could've actually done much more to hurt Alfred from that position. I think he let go not to spare him, but ...

Nice answers and discussions. I had the same questions about why a poor, under-educated, and rather "coward" could make a hard decision by killing his boss. I would rationalize from the previous scene when the "parasite" father told his son that they should not live on a plan. It is better leave the plan at God's hand. So, he seems not to like radical ...

I think that the answer is that it was the best possible route based on their intelligence. At that moment in time they had to trust the information that they had at hand, both that the ambush had been set and that the Germans had ordered a full retreat. They had to assume that it was entirely abandoned, or even if there were scouts or snipers still left ...

According to Wookieepedia, Padmé was unaware of the true circumstances, but was upset because she clearly could see the Jedi Temple burning in the distance and knew Anakin was suppose to be at the Temple. Skywalker, seeing Sidious as the only way to save his wife, pledged himself to the dark side. Sidious then initiated Order 66, declaring the Jedi to ...

I have to admit I was left with some lingering doubt whether Fran was in on it at the end of the movie but I think it's unlikely. First, what would be the point of such an elaborate scheme? You might think Fran pulled this to insure Jimmy (who in the movie is made out to be connected) takes the fatwa off of Joe, but after Jimmy finds out he was duped, he'd ...

Short Answer: Statistically, it is very improbable that Jesus Christ, or any other person who lived 2,000 years and at least fifty generations ago, would have one and only one living descendant at the time of the movie The Da Vinci Code (2006). It is very probable that someone living 2,000 years ago would have either no living descendants at all, or else ...

It took the form of Ralph. Once Ralph's insecurities are addressed, Arthur (the name of the virus) disappears.

From the script (pdf): LIEUTENANT LESLIE (CONT'D) If you do get shot, try to make it back to the wire. We won’t come after you, not until it’s dark. And, if by some fucking miracle you do make it, send up a flare. So they are instructed by the Lieutenant to send up a flare if they 'make it', i.e. they get to the German line, which means that ...

You can use the British Battle of the Somme from 1916 to get an idea of how combat charges took place in World War I. Ultimately, there was a fair amount of time before the first wave and the second wave. During the Somme the time between charges could as long as 45 minutes because each charge itself were so massive. This meant that troops in the first wave ...

Hammersmark is a public figure with international connections (more so than the average person). Given the nazi propaganda machine and things like the gestapo; it's more than likely that she is being watched. If three strangers had shown up at her house, gone in, and left an hour later, that'd be highly suspicious to anyone watching her for unexplained ...

Ronan is not immortal. As seen on this Wikipedia page, his powers are listed as: Abilities Expert in military tactics Skilled hand-to-hand combatant Superhuman strength, speed, endurance, and reflexes Utilizes Kree exoskeleton armor Wields "Universal Weapon" It mentions nothing about immortality, nor does the page for the Kree. ...

Fringilla I assume, as she forced her to go to Nilfgaard where they end up enslaving the mages, etc.

It's never explained in the movie. However, the movie shows Saito as being a very powerful and wealthy man as discussed here, so it would be easy for Saito to arrange for someone else to contact the father-in-law and give him Cobb's hotel number. Unless the whole movie is a dream... But we'll never know that.

Yes, Pablo was hallucinating at that moment. We Know that Pablo and Gustavo were very close. Following is the conversation that happens between Pablo and Gustavo. Gustavo: You'd have to be really stupid or have a lot of balls to sit here as if nothing's happening. They're offering seven million dollars for your head, and you're sitting here like a ...

(Bluemoon has this spot on) When Mal and Cobb both 'washed up on the shore' of their own unconscious, they were both aware that they were in limbo, which allowed them to 'act like Gods' and build their own world. As the years went on, Mal decided to reject the unreality of their situation by locking her totem away in the deepest and most secret place ...

As a Kree, he is well above average strength. As an Accuser, he wears Accuser armor, which is meant to enhance the wearer's strength and stamina. At the beginning of The Guardians of the Galaxy, Ronan executes a member of the Nova Corps, and the victim's blood mixes with what is likely Odium. As seen in Agents of SHIELD, Kree warriors will inhale/ingest the ...

My assumption is that they just wanted a map for the look and didn't expect anyone to really take that close a look at something that's on screen for maybe a handful of seconds. Things like this happen quite often in movies, where they want something for a certain look but it has no real meaning otherwise. I looked to see if perhaps the map had a tie into ...

I won't focus on the first question since it has already been answered. Why impersonate Nazi officers? In a Nazi-dominated France Nazi officers would have less trouble getting in and out of places without raising suspicions, having to show papers, and they would be considered a higher authority than any civilians of any nationality. This way the only ones ...

They were aware of the police but they were also in advantageous position. They can defend themselves on the court in many ways. (They may tell the judge that thieves blackmailed them with their family secretly or may tell thieves used psychological methods etc.) They was actually accepted the prison risk with the 1 million. 1 million is much money and it ...

I guess it is the actual ending of the film. In the end of Pet Sematary, Louis, Rachel, and Ellie are are all dead while Gage is locked in the car but the film does not show us what happens next. The beginning is a hint to what has actually happened.

I agree with Silver Bebs, but I will add a few more reasons, based on my observations. Vito was visibly shocked to see them at 1:03 and after they left the gay bar, he stood there pondering. He didn't expect them to be making collections there such late. It's very likely he wouldn't be able to think straight after that encounter. As to whether or not they ...

I thought there was some evidence that she's in on the plan. She says: "Cute plan though" He replies: "Cute as a Chinese baby" She looks at him and nods with lingering eye contact. I think Chinese baby could be a code word for another rendezvous point or something. That said it's not totally obvious.

Yes, it is a war joke, just like this one. Why Berlin? Because it was the capital city.

He found peace in death. The blue light was to "light at the end of the tunnel". It is never shown in the series what it might be nor was it mentioned anywhere. Also the hollywoodreporter explains this in depth. As for the enigmatic nature of Tyrell's final moments, bloodied but bending toward a great blue glow, the actor is just as confused as the ...

When he says "Lets see if you guys can do 90" and goes for 4th, he turns them on again, looks at the display and notes the dates are entered. Nothing in the script indicates this, though it is not ruled out. In the script it just says "Gauges and indicators light up behind Marty*s head, just as they did before Einstein traveled through time", not that he ...

Actually Nairobi loves Berlin very much. She says it to Berlin for letting himself die. She doesn't want him to die.

According to an interview of Casey Kasem that I read, the entire Mystery Inc. team is wealthy. Scooby is blue blood old money. His family is pedigrees champion stock. But most of his money came from an eccentric dutchess who left her entire estate in trust to Scooby's family. As such, with all assets tallied, he is the wealthiest. Norville "Shaggy" ...

The only two reasons I can think of that would cause the dryads to forego this security measure, are because Mousesack obviously has no intention of staying, as he is just there to take Ciri back home ("I've come for the girl"), and Eithné insinuates the Waters of Oblivion are for those wishing to stay indefinitely: "All newcomers in the forest must ...

He may have given up, or might be a mythological figure from the underworld. It's possible that the driver assumed she was going to go up to the boat, talk to people, then come back. So far, we have no indication that she told him she was going on a cruise. Upon seeing her board the boat, or after waiting for a long time, he may have given up on it and ...

They all retain the ability to say "Shazam!" And call upon the Shazam family power However, I have read that for each member of the family who draws this power it actively weakens Shazam's power So in the movie Shazam, it's a fair fight with the villain Because he too is weakened by the fact that the sins have left his body But I don't think that any more ...
