Will Mortensen's public use of the N word cost him an Oscar Nomination+other awards? Boxofficemojo lists this under the Thriller - Psycho/Stalker/Blank from Hell? Will this be the "Get Out" of 2018? Just saw it.... Some spoilers... Someone like McGonagall taking 150 points, really? Did Bob initially know that Meredith changed the production line? Favorite film scores and composers? Worth watching at the movies? Laura Dern Oscar nomination with not much other awards. Will the Weinstein Scandal impact this film? View all posts >

The fizzy lifting drinks were not in the book. This movie was meant to be a much more faithful adaption to the book, unlike 1971 version which had a lot of stuff not in the book. Very hard to buy that he was planning on getting rid on Tom before he announced Meredith as VP. If that's the case, Meredith and Phil would have told him about the sexual harassment plot, which he clearly had no idea about. I guess I must be looking at the plot from a different prespective. I assume this a new account from your name. Was Garvin always planning to get rid of him from the beginning? I think he knew about the changes from the beginning, but in the Tuesday morning meeting, his reaction seems like he want Sanders to demonstrate competence and make the Conley-White people confident about the merger. I don't think he was planning on getting rid of him until Sanders rejected his proposition and proved Meredith's lies. I think he would have given Sanders his job back if he let Meredith stay. Jeff was certainly a pedophile. Those photos Hailey found in the safe were pictures of nude girls. One of the pictures reflect in Hailey's eye and you can make out two nude girls. Hailey said "this is officialy sick" so there was probably worse than what you can make out. She later refers to it as "kiddie porn". Also, did you miss the ending where he admitted that he and this other guy took part in the missing girl's murder and Hailey said she had already did the other guy in and told her about Jeff? She knew Jeff was a bad person from the get go. She may be a psycho, but Jeff is far from innocent. He did lie to her from the beginnng about sharing her interests, such as the Goldfrapp concert. Breakdown is pretty much the same movie as this. It's where Kurt Russell's wife gets a ride from a trucker after their truck "breaks" down. He later sees the trucker who claims he doesn't who Kurt Russell is and about picking up the wife. It's revealed later fairly early on he's the bad guy with some henchmen and wants to extortion money out of Kurt Russell's bank account since he is relatively rich, and Kurt then has to save his wife. That's pretty much the whole story. Jack doesn't have the shine in the novel, unlike the film, where he even has more power to shine than Danny. The hotel would likely convince him to commit suicide after he finished his "job". Akiva Goldsman is not really the best writer. He won an Oscar for A Beautiful Mind, but there is a lot of mediocre stuff he's known for. And I think it's quite clear from this movie, he was going to be inspired to write more unnecassary puns, more kiddie stuff and what not. And let's not forget that Batman & Robin is really just a rehash of this movie. 1. It was because he decided to pursue a relationship with Chase. He even said to Dick "I'm telling her tonight". He then proceeded to tell Chase. Dick's insistence on helping him find Two-Face was already in the way as well and Bruce also blamed himself for the deaths of the Grayson family. 2. Same as 1 3. I'm not honestly sure what you are saying here. All I remember is him slowly, but willingly telling Chase how he came to be Batman. It's explaining to the audience how and why he became Batman. 4. It wasn't so much as becoming a partner that bothered him, but for helping him get revenge against Two-Face. Dick said that he couldn't promise not to kill Two-Face with Bruce responding "A man's got to go his own way". And Bruce said "two against two are better odds". Not the best explination in the world, but something. Hope this helps. When exactly did he say that line? Also I believe he looked annoyed when his plan to fire him failed when Tom exposed Meredith. He was Meredith's strongest supporter so he would certainly be pissed. That's what I always wondered. Did he know that Meredith was to blame for the changes from the beginning? I thought Meredith was trying to set up Tom behind his Garvin's back. View all replies >
