Movies with questions you wanted answered

For instance,

Why DID the aliens take all those people in Close Encounters? and how did the humans know they would be peacful, OR bring anyone back?

You want answers for a movie from 1977?

Most movies intentionally leave things open because not every little thing needs to be explained and backstories are left vague for the mystery aspect of it.

I remember watching revolver and thinking... what? I can't tell you which bit though because I just don't remember the movie much, so I can live with it.

Why does it being an old movie make it invalid for viewers to question things about it?

Superman can control his strength so sex isn't a problem but the question of the ages is if during ejaculation the sperm shooting out would be like shooting a gun inside her vagina.

I remember reading pages long discussions about this many years ago, Google it, it's not something I'm making up.

You should read a graphic novel called "The Pro" by Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner if you want to see an interesting application of this theory, albeit with a Superman expy/analogue.

Lol that thing removes superman's power forever so that's unlikely. http://smallville.wikia.com/wiki/Gold_kryptonite

If you have sex, you'll know it's anything but being in control.

Reminds me of this video


Speaking of water why would they invade a world thats mostly acidic to them and pretty much rains acid. Like no one in that species wonder what was covering most of Earth.

If the aliens in Arrival can see time and knew that visual patterns were the key to us understanding them, why waste our time for months with sounds?
