  91. 91. Q16 Speculation abounds as to the nature of the mysterious glowing contents of X: People have speculated it to be Elvis’ gold suit seen worn by Val Kilmer( as Elvis) in True Romance. The most persistent theory however (most usually attributed to a friend of a friend who saw it posted on a message board by someone whose brother had read a report of a radio interview with Y himself) is that it is Z’s soul. The story goes that when the Devil takes a person’s soul, it is removed through the back of the head (this isn’t part of any known religion, but this is what the message board posters say). When we see the back of Z’s head he has a band-aid covering the precise spot indicated by tradition for soul-removal. Perhaps Z sold his soul to the Devil, which would also explain why the combination to open X is 666.
  93. 93. ANSWER • X- Marsellus Wallace’s briefcase/ The briefcase • Y- Quentin Tarantino • Z- Marsellus Wallace
  94. 94. Q17 • The Principle of Evil Marksmanship states that, during a fight scene, antagonists in a work of fiction will be as incompetent as the plot demands, despite prior characterization or reputation. For example, marksmen in action films are often very bad shots and almost never harm the main characters. They are generally capable of hitting a target only if the target is either of no value to the plot or if their death will advance the plot. The term first appeared in film critic Roger Ebert's 1980 book "Little Movie Glossary", and had been submitted by Jim Murphy of New York. • The theme is commonly seen in cowboy films, action films, martial arts films, and comics, and is often a source of mockery by critics, satirists, and fans. • There are two specific rules that follow this principle: • One-At-a-Time Attack Rule • In any situation where the hero is alone, surrounded by dozens of bad guys, they will always obligingly attack one at a time. This is actually done because it is easier for the director to get a better shot of the fight in one-on-one battles. • Inverse Ninja Law • Though depicted as nearly-invincible warriors (especially when they are the heroes of the story), ninja are often conversely depicted as disposable cannon fodder to be dispatched by the hero character, especially one who is a ninja himself. Thus, modern entertainment has shown ninja as either expendable, attacking in large numbers, or as nearly invulnerable solitary warriors (who are often unmasked in contrast). The law is also known by several other names such as, Law of the Conservation of Ninjutsu or the Law of Diminishing Ninjas or even the "Law of the Conservation of Whoopass. • How is the Principle of Evil Marksmanship better known to us?
  96. 96. ANSWER • The Storm trooper Effect

Q19 • The clip on the next slide contains a reference to a movie. • Although largely ignored upon release, it soon gained notoriety as a midnight movie when audiences began participating with the film at the Waverly Theater in New York City in 1976. Audience members returned to the cinemas frequently and talked back to the screen and began dressing as the characters, spawning similar performance groups across the United States.
