Q: Why is "The Matrix" called by that name?

user2638180Personally from what "matrix" means in English, I can only see relation with one of its meanings, and even then a bit far-fetched. As guide for the meanings of "matrix" we can use this link: https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/matrix I can only see the first meaning described there as h...

Q: Why did Lord Barkis kill Emily?

Mary HammondIt has been unclear to me why Lord Barkis kills Emily in Tim Burton's Corpse Bride. We only know that it happens.

Afternoon there, quick question: Is it on-topic to talk about the legality of a action made in a TV show/movie? Either in MTV or Law :) (i know it's not the reality but would be interesting to find out)
 
Kind of maybe, it depends, I guess.
 
Uh, I see :)
 
It depends on the question really, and what your sepcific approach is. We have questions about how realistic something seen in a movie is. But it's preferable that the question is ultimately about the film, rather than just using it as a jumping off point for an unrelated legal discussion this site might not be the best fit for.
So yes, it's probably okay to ask, but it's hard to give guarantees for its reception.
 
Yeah I understand your view here, thanks!
 
It's a difficult balance to find, since obviously we want to answer people's questions about films. But given that about everything can be shown in a film, these questions can also present the danger of ultimately discussing god and the world while losing traction to our actual site topic. But usually they tend to garner some answers by engaged people.

@NapoleonWilson You there?
 
@Knight Well, yes.
 
@NapoleonWilson Did Cliff Booth really defeat Bruce Lee?
 
I haven't seen that yet. But I heard he did.
 
In movie or in reality?
 
(Unless you're talking about reality, where I doubt Cliff Booth even existed at all.)

Q: What is the significance of the toy car?

Fr33danWhen Huntress' family is killed in Birds of Prey, one of them gives her a purple toy car, which seems to be a sign that it had a some importance to her or her family. Later on in the movie she gives it to Cassandra Cain before the climatic final fight, and is finally given back to Huntress at the...

 
@NapoleonWilson Oh my gosh! Are you serious?
 
@Knight What makes you think he did?
And even if he did, you have to realize that the film deliberately alters history in the same way as earlier Tarantino films did, like to some degree Django Unchained and most proiminently Inglourious Basterds.
 
@NapoleonWilson Because you see he never wanted money as much as others, all he wanted was square meal (he was eating noodles in dinner). I don’t know but I found him lifeless.
 
For example the actual finale of the film, as much as I heard, is entirely made up and in reality the killers didn't go to Booth/Dalton's house but to the Polanskis' house and killed Sharon Tate.
@Knight No, I mean what makes you think he actually existed?
 
@NapoleonWilson Because human imagination can alter the reality but cannot create anything NEW. Some people say Godfather is a fiction, I agree that everything in it was not real but not everything was fictional too.
 
4:22 PM
Well, sure. Things are inspired by reality and ultimately have to capture it in order to appeal and make a statement about reality.
But that doesn't mean the actual characters genuinely existed.
 
Maybe
@NapoleonWilson Did you watch Dressed to Kill? :-)
 
Actually, I coincidentally did, or the last half of it. I caught it on TV some days ago. ;-)
 
LOL great.
@NapoleonWilson On which channel do they show it? All the channels that I have subscribed shows much of recent movies only. I think in my country they cannot even stream Dressed To Kill because of its eroticism.
 
I don't really remember. It was a normal free TV channel. Either a third-tier government-funded one or a private niche channel.
 
Is Napolean your real name or just the stage name? :-)
 
4:31 PM
It's the "stage name" of a famous movie character.
 
Who?
 
Well, Napoleon Wilson.
 
Darwin Joston?
 
Well, that's the actor, not the character, but yes, kind of.
 
Why Francis Ford Coppola started to make Indie movies?
Was it because of lack of investment?
 
4:38 PM
You mean now or when he started?
 
Basically after Sleepy Hollow
 
Which Sleepy Hollow?
 
That Johnny Depp one. Headless Horseman
 
What does Francis Ford Coppola have to do with that?
Are you talking about Tim Burton?
 
Francis Ford Coppola was producer of that movie
 
4:43 PM
Really? Odd.
Producers usually don't mean much for the film, though.
 
I know on internet they aren’t showing him as the producer but in my TV channel he was named.

@Knight aren't leeches supposed to be bloodhungry producers . . . I mean the other way around
Well, depending on the director or the cast names to watch movies already produces enough false positives.

Q: Did non-Caucasian actors become famous playing Caucasian characters?

ChaimThere have been lots of examples, in western movies, of western actors disguised to look like other racial types. For example the Fu Manchu movies, Charlie Chan movies and Lawrence of Arabia featured Chinese or Arab characters played by Caucasians or Hispanics. In films made abroad (or here, I g...
