^I liked the movie Riv, but must not remember her extreme attention-to-detail Detective Vision. Maybe since she didn't age she didn't have any normal memory loss related to age?

Note: I mean the memory loss that occurs normally with aging, not memory loss due to a syndrome like dementia or another underlying condition.

That doesn't explain why she has super-duper memory instead though.

EDIT: Didn't realize I was starting a new page; the up arrow is referring to Riv's comment about why Adaline in Age of Adaline had Sherlock Holmes super deductive skills.


I was confused when I was a teen and watched Tim Burton's Planet of the Apes and Fight Club because of both of the endings, but then I realized Burton's PotA remake wasn't really a good movie and didn't care and, in Fight Club's case, I hadn't seen enough movies with the "main character is really the bad guy and said bad guy was all in his head the whole time!" trope yet.

It's a lot more clear in the book, but Bateman, along with being a narcissistic serial killing sociopath, is legitimately insane, and suffers from hallucinations and delusions. Remember when he heard an ATM machine tell him to feed it a stray cat, and then tried to do it?

Thanks, man, that makes as much sense as anything i guess!

I'm with you on the Apes movie, thst was an especially dilly ending.
Its like someone thought it'd be cool to see monkey Zlincoln so they just tacked it on.

Okay, the original Toy Story.

If Buzz didnt believe he was a toy, why did he go inanimate whenever Andy showed up/played with him?
Its been shown in the moves (including that one) that toys freeze up by choice, and can interract with humans/animals.
Why wasnt Buzz shouting at the giant about needing to contact space command?

Been a LOOOOOOOOOOONG time since I've watched Toy Story, but I've got a 3-year old and a 4-month old. I bet I can do some recon and get back to you within the next few months/years haha.

Back to the future Pt.3

Marty goes back to the old west, arrow hits the delorean which then leaks fuel so no fuel in the delorean. However when Doc got sent back to the old west he buried the delorean which Marty retrieves in 1955 so when Marty went back to 1885 the delorean is still in the cave for Marty in 1955. They could've used fuel from the delorean in the cave, then by 1955 the delorean could easily be refueled when Doc and Marty get it from the cave.

Cool question!
Here's what i found for you:

http://bttf.wikidot.com/official-bttf-faq#toc19

In I885, when Marry tells Doc they're out of gas; why don't they just go to the Delgado Mine, dig up the DeLorean where Doc hid it and get the gas out of it?

A: There are two logical answers to this one…

The car mechanic's answer: As anyone who has stored an automobile for a long period of time can tell you, you always drain all of the fluids out of the car before putting it into storage. Doc most certainly would have drained the gas out of the DeLorean if he was going to leave it hidden for 70 years. At the 1955 drive-in, Doc specifically says "I put gas in the tank" indicating that the DMC must have had an empty tank when they found it in the mine.
The time travel theory answer: Even if Doc had not drained the tank, he still would not have gone back into the mine for fear of creating a time paradox by accidentally damaging the DeLorean, the mine, or who knows what. After all, since Marty is now back in 1885, Doc's plan obviously worked, and worked perfectly. But what if Doc were to go back into the mine and accidentally cause a cave-in that causes even more damage to the DeLorean? What happens to the future of that DeLorean, when it's unearthed in 1955? And what might that do to Marty and the undamaged future DeLorean now in 1885? As an analogy, imagine a time traveler going back in time, finding himself as a child, and cutting off that child's hand with a meat cleaver. What happens to the adult time-traveler's hand? That would definitely risk a time paradox, and we know that Doc would never go out of his way to risk such a thing for fear of (in the worst case scenario) unraveling the fabric of the space-time continuum and destroying the entire universe.
