The 7th episode in the 2nd season of Breaking Bad is titled 'Negro Y Azul'. There
are several explanations as to why it was named so. The most plausible one is
that it refers to Walter White’s attire and his business.
It also translates to a phrase in English that means getting covered with livid
bruises after taking a beating. What is this phrase?

In Tomorrow Never Dies, James Bond (Brosnan) faces off against the power
thirsty media mogul Elliot Carver, the self proclaimed 'Emperor of the Air'. Many
reviewers have pointed out that Elliot's character is an amalgamation of X and
Bill Gates. Although it has been made clear that the character is instead based
on Robert Maxwell. In fact Maxwell's death is referenced when M says that Elliot
fell off his yacht.
The movie Outfoxed is based on X's conquests. Who is X?
Saul Bass is best known for his design of motion picture title sequences, ﬁlm
posters and corporate logos, having worked for the likes of Hitchcock, Scorsese
and Preminger. He became widely recognised after designing the title sequence
of ‘The Man with the Golden Arm’, and went on to create iconic posters for ﬁlms
One of his famous works, the opening sequence of a Preminger movie is a
perfect take on the movie title. The main image is an intentional pun as it shows
a dissected human body. Identify the movie. Image on next slide.
In Avengers:Endgame, Thor's downhill slump proved to be quite comical. This
persona of Thor's was an intentional homage by the Russo brothers to their
favourite ﬁlmmakers, and quite appropriately too. Tony Stark, is always big on
references to pop culture and in a scene where the Avengers are preparing for
Time Travel, calls Thor by the name of a dude known as X, due to the likeness.
What does he call Thor?
Tony: One side there, Lebowski
Suave international spy Sterling Archer is the titular character in the animated
American sitcom Archer. Archer’s mother Malory Archer was also his boss at the
spy agency, but retired from the CEO position in later seasons.
In the ﬁnal episode of the ﬁrst season, Archer is in dire straits, as he comes
under the control of a mind chip and is forced to kill his mother. The title of this
episode is a wordplay on the name of a Hitchcock movie. Give me the title of the
episode, which also refers to the fact that he usually calls up his mother for help
in tough situations.
The name of this clothing/uniform, X, originates from the fact that the surgeons
wore this only when sterilizing themselves thoroughly, or "X-ing in", before an
operation. They are now worn by many hospital personnel. Their use has been
extended outside hospitals as well, to work environments where clothing may
come into contact with infectious agents (veterinarians, midwives, etc.).

The ﬁghting styles in this show are based on four actual martial arts : Hung Gar
Kung Fu, Northern Shaolin Kung Fu, Tai Chi and Baguazhang. The show was
adapted into a movie of the same name by M. Night Shyamalan, and has been
said to be one of the worst ﬁlms ever made. Shyamalan once said in an
interview, "Watching this show has become a family event in my house ... so we
are looking forward to how the story develops in season three."
The movie name had to undergo a subtle change, by removing one word to avoid
confusion with a major hit movie. Which show?

Haseen Sapne about an aam aadmi from 1980s India. Mungerilal, a lowly clerk

The only time Mungerilal escapes his mundane and oppressive reality is in his
The show was inspired from a 1939 short story by James Thurber, which has
had several adaptations over the years, the most famous probably being the

Tarun Tejpal is an Indian journalist and writer, most famous as the founder of
Tehelka magazine. He had to step down in 2013 due to sexual harassment
charges by a colleague, a scandal that made headlines at that time.
However 2020 has been a redemption of sorts for Tejpal, with one of his works
The Story of My Assassins having been resuscitated from oblivion. The book is a
deeply incisive and deathly funny comment on twenty-ﬁrst century India.
Trawling life and death in the dark underside, it inquires into the inexorable codes
of power and wealth that propel societies.
Why has this book become famous in recent times?
Emma, by Jane Austen, is a novel about youthful hubris and romantic
misunderstandings. It is a comedy of manners, and depicts issues of marriage,
sex, age, and social status and has also been adapted numerous times.
A 2010 Bollywood ﬁlm has been based on Emma and like the novel, is named

better works of the lead actress?

Austin Cedric Gibbons (March 23, 1890 – July 26, 1960) was an Irish-American
art director and production designer for the ﬁlm industry. He also made a
signiﬁcant contribution to motion picture theater architecture from the 1930s to
He was nominated 39 times for the Academy Award for Best Production Design
and won the Oscar 11 times, both of which are records. His last nomination
came for Best Art Direction in 1956. However, he has one other signiﬁcant
connection to the Oscars. What contribution of his, to the Academy Awards, is
This award, also known as the Razzies, is a parody award show honouring the worst
of cinematic underachievement. The name of the award combines one existing
award for movies, and a word used in its irreverent sense, derived from a Cockney
rhyming slang for fart.
Give me the full name of the award.
While the ﬁrst documented use of X was made by Skolsky—in a 1934 New York
Daily News article, it was oﬃcially adopted only in 1939. As to why X is used,
there is a popular theory that it was coined by Margaret Herrick. She had once
said that when she ﬁrst saw a particular object in 1931, it reminded her of his
Uncle X. This theory was disputed by Skolsky and claimed that he was the ﬁrst to
use it, although it was originally meant to be a derogatory substitute word.
Walt Disney was the ﬁrst to make use of the word X in a positive light. What is
the above theory explaining? Or simply give me X.
Orange is the New Black is a critically acclaimed show and a multi-Emmy award
winner. What is special about its nominations though, is that it is the ﬁrst show
to have been nominated for an Emmy as both a Comedy and later as a Drama.
This change in category was a result of a rule change by the Emmys, which
speciﬁed that any show with episodes that follow a certain criteria would be
considered a Comedy by default, while those falling outside this criteria, would
be considered as Drama by default. Thus this show has since been nominated as
a drama. What was the rule change, which is quite appropriate and seen in
almost all comedies?
Episodes under half an hour-comedy
Episodes under one hour-drama by default
Quite surprisingly, this movie entered the Golden Globes nominations in the
Musical/Comedy category. It’s part of Golden Globes’s rich history of
mis-categorizing movies. "Three Billboards," a comedy, was also marked as a
drama the same year. Even the director lashed out at the Globes with this tweet-
