12:32 AM
@DrRDizzle I'm looking much forward to this indeed. So is it already out in the UK?
And by the way, I should say we feel very honoured and glad that you chose this site to ask your question about the movie, seeing that it definitely is a science fiction movie.
1:00 AM
Q: late 70's, early 80's movie about a boy who kills his parents

wykedWhat I remember is a boy who asked to sleep in mom/dad's bed and being told no. He came into their room when they were asleep and it looked like his hand started growing hair on it, possibly turned into a werewolf. May also have had telekinetic power as a swingset moved on its own. I didnt watc...

Q: Was regeneration planned right from the start of Doctor Who?

NiceOrcI heard that when William Hartnell started getting doddery and forgetting his lines, he refused to retire, implying that he was irreplaceable. So the writers made the character of the Doctor regenerate into a different actor. Was the idea of regeneration planned from the start? Or was it somet...

2:36 AM
Q: What is the name of this movie?

CourtneyI don't know much about it, but all I remember is that woman decorates and prepares houses before they are bought. Like baking cookies so the scent will be pleasant.

Q: Looking for an old movie - opening scene about a man receiving pee from dog

Khalel LeconteI've been looking for years for this (old english guy i think but saw it in french) movie that i can't recall more than the opening scene :-( : * A man goes home, what seems to be a basement, and while he take his shower, a dog pees through the windows from outside which gives on his bath...

2 hours later…
7:31 AM
@NapoleonWilson It came out yesterday, so I saw it opening night. And you're welcome for the question ;-P In all seriousness, this site seemed like a better "fit" for my question - I have no idea why.
7:46 AM
Q: In Peep Show, why doesn't Jeremy just go on the dole?

NobilisIn Peep Show, Jeremy has always struggled to hold a proper job or indeed a stable source of income. He's shown having to rely on Mark for basics such as food and has never paid rent (or at least I can't recall him once actually fulfilling one of his many promises to turn his life around). We also...

8:04 AM
Q: Why did Walt still appear handicapped from Hal's perspective after Hal's hypnotherapy?

JonIn the 2001 movie, "Shallow Hal", Hal receives hypnotherapy from Tony Robbins. This hypnotherapy helps Hal see the inner beauty in people shine through in what society's view of physical beauty is. Hal starts seeing everyone who has a good heart and is kind natured as physically attractive. (be...

@MovieReel I'll get right on it, once I remember the name of that action movie with a cop that drove around and arrested people. Almost positive his car had a siren.
8:19 AM
@Walt I've heard of that one actually. I think it's got that guy in, the one with the face.
8:39 AM
Q: Movies where husband murders wife.

Miri VakninI'm looking for famous movies in which the husband murders the wife. I'm drawing a blank apart from a couple of true life movies. Thanks in advance.

9:20 AM
Q: The Last Slumber Party logistic quandry

Meat TrademarkIn the [cough, cough] "classic" 1988 horror flick The Last Slumber Party, there are, shall we say, certain flaws. One just seemed to "take the cake" for me. After all the implausible and sometimes incoherent meanderings, towards the end of the flick, the dad walk backs back out to his car after r...

9:37 AM
Q: Cinematography Mr. Robot

vidalIs the cinematography in Mr. Robot is best we ever seen. Some might think of this as trivial question but I have some serious doubt regarding how they(for awards) choose for the best. Lets take cinematography of Top of the lake and True Detective -season 1(same cinematographer). I think the for...

9:50 AM
A: Do you spend significant time on movies.SE? Why or why not?

BCdotWEBQuite frankly I find Movies.SE not that great due to the large volume of "noise". Besides the overabundance of "identify this" questions -- at this moment about half of the questions on their homepage -- it often features inane questions. Not just ones that can be solved by looking at a wiki page...

Should we need to give reverse examples
Or those "what if" questions
10:29 AM
@AnkitSharma Nah, I'd rather not bother engaging that. Of course he picked some strange examples, there are equally many stupid and uninteresting questions on SciFi, but I'd rather not pick on that thing in the comments. People gave their valid opinions about the site and I'd leave it at that.
I am not replying there but just sharing a point of view due to getting annoyed
I find it interesting how many people consider the actual questions low quality or uninteresting (granted, let's not talk about ID for now) when I'm personally not that interested how toilets work in the wizarding world how many TNG episodes show a blue flower either. It seems the two communities are indeed driven by entirely different question desires, which isn't that surprising though.
And those in universe gorilla vs shark question too
@AnkitSharma They don't allow gorilla vs shark, you have to ask if a fight has ever happened.
@DrRDizzle terminator fight elephant?
or something similar
10:41 AM
@AnkitSharma If you asked "Has The Terminator ever fought an elephant" it would probably be down voted but left open.
Granted, they only allow them if you can find some obscure crossover comic book that puts the characters into a shared universe.
@AnkitSharma If you said "Who would win in a fight between the Terminator or an elephant" it would be closed.
@NapoleonWilson That's because they don't allow gorilla vs shark questions - but they do allow you to ask if something has ever happened, including fights.
Meh, nevermind.
Q:Who will win if robocop fight terminator in the matrix world?
Ans: Robocop because he won in some x non canon comics
@AnkitSharma That question would be edited to ask "Have The Terminator and Robocop ever fought?" and answered appropriately.
10:44 AM
But they do accept non-can fan made comics answer too and think them sorced
But production side answer are wrong
The answer is here btw.
@AnkitSharma Fan made stuff isn't accepted as answers and never has been. Alternative canons (such as Star Wars Legends) are accepted as long as you are asking about that canon.
@DrRDizzle no they were not in matrix world :P
@AnkitSharma Then the answer would be "No, they haven't".
In other news, this is my daily reminder for you all to go see The Martian.
@DrRDizzle releasing tomorrow in India. I want to go but no plans yet.
@AnkitSharma Make plans. Seriously, it's so good.
11:02 AM
I still have to wait another week anyway.
I'm definitely going to see it, together with Spectre it's the most anticipated movie this year for me.
@NapoleonWilson ? Coming late in Germany
11:20 AM
@NapoleonWilson ... the new Star Wars? I'm not even a fan of the franchise and I'm hyped for that.
@DrRDizzle Spectre is james bond film
@AnkitSharma Har har har. I meant "Are you not excited for the new Star Wars?" and you know it ;P
@DrRDizzle ohh
11:48 AM
Q: Why was Mr. Smithers black and then white?

IanIn season 1, episode 2 of the Simpsons, Mr. Smithers has black skin. In later episodes, he has white skin. Does anyone know the reason for this change? Thanks!

@DrRDizzle Oh indeed. I'm quite a big Star Wars fan (as far as the movies go, of course), but that still doesn't beat my hype for Spectre and The Martian.
12:04 PM
@MovieReel do we need in here?
I don't know, marginally relevant.
Doesn't that means all simpson question are too?
@AnkitSharma No, it's about the artistic design of a specific character. But you can as well remove it if you think it inappropriate, I'm undecided enough to just do nothing.
I am also undecided and hoping for clearance
@NapoleonWilson dailymail vs reddit. What's your thought?
@DrRDizzle hopefully i will go for martian tomorrow
@AnkitSharma Pff, don't know. But if it's an interview it's pretty clear who's right. Either we choose to believe Matt Groening's own words or we don't, but if we choose to not believe him, we're entirely lost anyway.
12:18 PM
12:32 PM
@NapoleonWilson I don't understand. Why can't both of these be right? He was originally planned as a black character, presumably before the animation process. Whether that error in episode 2 is related or not is irrelevant.
@AnkitSharma On a side note, I wish we hosted similar Q&A events... But, yeah, 'not a forum' and all that :(
Well, feel free to put all that stuff into your own answer then.
@NapoleonWilson Why? It doesn't answer the question. It's just a sidenote and better off as a comment.
@MetaReel Ta for the meta thread, I like those.
(Hard to pick, though. Will give it some thought later)
@Walt what? this one
You can go ahead, i have aNswer in mind :D
12:49 PM
No, the favorite Qs one on our own Meta
@AnkitSharma Weird little poll
@Walt That doe by NapoleonWilson already
Best answer bounty one will come in few mints
@AnkitSharma What do you mean
@AnkitSharma Won't answer as I've barely been to SF&F. In fact, reverse Mike Scott's answer and you'll have mine.

@Walt You mean this by fav Q's or do you have anything else in mind ?
@AnkitSharma Yeah, I know. :/
Yeah, just meant I like reading them
my bad
12:53 PM
@Walt It seems highly relevant if he was actually intended black beforehand.
@AnkitSharma I'm not a complicated person, really ;)
@Walt Now you only need to actually answer them. ;-)
Yeah, though it's never easy & I like to be thorough
@Walt i will upvote that :D
@NapoleonWilson Maybe, but until I know for certain, it's just a note
12:54 PM
@Walt Of course, that's why I have to crawl through like 50 questions every three months!
@NapoleonWilson Enjoy :P
Wanted to post some advice in the opinion-based q about mr. robot, but it's RIP now
@Walt :D
@Walt Yeah, it went a rather unpleasant way, I think.
Ohh we have increased answer in this quarter
@NapoleonWilson Well, opinion-based Qs are usually from opinionated OPs ;)
1:03 PM
@Walt Well, I still fear the site could have treated him better, but I only had a short glance at the whole thing as I wasn't there at all and it was already deleted.
@NapoleonWilson Not crazy about 'why is X the best' questions to begin with, but sure, maybe it could've been rephrased and salvaged
@Catija hi
@NapoleonWilson do you remember how many days i given to the best answer post last time?
@AnkitSharma Uh well, wouldn't just copying the last question be the easiest way of writing the new one anyway?
@NapoleonWilson done already
So what does it say?
1:09 PM
I mean for the day of schedule event or do you mena old even log is also there :O
@AnkitSharma Do you mean the old question didn't even say how long?
@NapoleonWilson NO :D
What about a month?
I also think you got some links wrong in the new one.
@NapoleonWilson ohhh.....let me see
@NapoleonWilson last time it was 15 days
tag seems inappropriate, though.
1:12 PM
@NapoleonWilson corrected
Done, i think 15 days are still enough.
Will give month for the yearly thing
Q: Rewards for the best answer from the 3rd quarter of 2015

Ankit SharmaIn continuation of quarterly rewards for the best answer and parallel to our favorite questions/answers poll, I'd ask the community for the best answers from the past quarter to get an additional reward: Please link to an answer which was created from July 1st 2015 through September 30th 2015 a...

@MetaReel i think i have few in mind......if nobody mention them, then i will.
By the way, here's the list of past events: movies.stackexchange.com/admin/community-events?tab=past
It was two weeks for the last contest, too.
And of course, Happy Coffee Day!, @JimmyHoffa
That wasn't today. Also Coffee Day is the maximum incarnation of itself, no certain day is more coffee day than another.
Happy Coffee Day.
1:39 PM
@NapoleonWilson already checked it
@JimmyHoffa It is today, international one
Happy International Coffee Day
Ankit Sharma has made a change to the feeds posted into this room
A: Monthly Answer Challenge: Solve old unanswered questions!

@NapoleonWilson :D wait
2:02 PM
1 message moved to Movie lab
Great now it does....lol
2:41 PM
@AnkitSharma Coffee Day is the mathematical limit of it's own incarnation; all other celebrations may simply get infinitely close but never touch the relevance of Coffee Day. Happy Coffee Day to you.
@AnkitSharma International coffee day was celebrated on Tuesday.....at least where I live. Dutch Bros. was giving away 9 stamps on your card with the purchase of any size coffee.....pretty cool :)
@NapoleonWilson I hope you are getting the Steelers vs. Ravens game tonight. It is a bitter rivalry and the Ravens will be out for blood since they are 0-3. Also, Steelers QB is out, so it should be interesting :)
@steelerfan No, we only get sunday games, 2 each sunday (though, 3 this sunday because of the time shift from the London game).
3:00 PM
@NapoleonWilson Oh bummer! You really need to experience a true rivalry game. They are the best. Especially Steelers vs Ravens, but I am biased :)
@NapoleonWilson if I want an old question of mine to receive more attention, I can just put a bounty on it myself can't I?
@steelerfan Sure you can. Most bounties come from the original askers.
@steelerfan as per Wikipedia international coffee day is on 1st. Anyways we never celebrate that in India yet.
The Cpt. Smith thing? I'd be very interested in this one, too (even if we might not be able to get a conclusive answer, but I haven't read the novel either).
@NapoleonWilson Yep! That's the one! Wow. You're good!
Q: How is Bucky Even Alive?

Cody HarnessWhen you think about it, not a lot of the story on how they kept Bucky alive makes sense. He was shot out of a speeding train and fell to unknown depths, only to be found by Strategic Science Reserve and kept alive by Zola, an enemy they captured. What was their thought process, "Hey, we found Ca...

3:07 PM
@steelerfan Well, it's the only one of your questions that doesn't have an accepted answer.
@AnkitSharma Well, I live on the west coast of the US.
3:22 PM
@MovieReel Did you missed the whole film?
3:47 PM
Q: which movie does this scene belongs to?

Kannan ArunDefinitely not a "Ghost" or "Just like heaven" movie. Girl is a tomboy. In one scene thugs beats up the girl throw her away, but not dies. The Hero only can see her soul. He later realizes that she has her body somewhere and he helps to make her soul reach the body. Language: English Movie

I managed to find a website silly enough to publish my writing. If you want to read it you can find it here, it's a spoiler free review of the Agents of SHIELD season 3 opening episode.

evening gents
and gentiles of course
I was planning on asking where in the whole marvel storyline agents of shield fit in and discovered this thread: movies.stackexchange.com/questions/15242/…
unfortunately, even on this q&a site there seems to be quite a bit of discussion and/or lack of information about this
but then again, that question was from two years ago.
i wonder if it would be ok to ask the same or a similar question again to get updated info (think not) or if maybe there's a whole marvel timeline somewhere on this SE which i can't find
9:11 PM
i fould my answer with the help of scifi.se chat. thanks :)

@npst You know that "gentiles" doesn't mean females... right?

This might help you if you have any doubt
@NapoleonWilson oh, you're correct sir. I guess that is the only question I have without an answer! Stupid me. You're still good though.
@Catija I was going to ask the same thing about "gentiles".... :)
Sad day in my neck of the woods.....school shooting in Roseburg, Ore. Very sad. Puts a damper on the Steelers vs. Ravens game tonight :(
