Fair use rationale for Image:Vlcsnap-234436.png[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Vlcsnap-234436.png is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

trivia[edit]

The logotype "M" in the marquee title of "Mant" copies the style of the "M" in posters for the 1957 monster movie "The Deadly Mantis". Naaman Brown (talk) 21:35, 8 November 2009 (UTC)

restored[edit]

Restored:

The film is structured in halves: the first half leading up to the screening, and the second half depicting the screening and what goes on at and around it. The film also showed the differences in two young women who would eventually become the girlfriends of the two boys in the film. The girlfriend of Gene had more progressive ideas of what a woman might become, whereas the eventual girlfriend of Stan was more in line with what society at the time of the film thought a young lady should be.

The reason is the plot just ends abruptly without this explanation. Zeddocument (talk) 02:41, 24 January 2014 (UTC)

That whole paragraph belongs somewhere else in the article, if it belongs anywhere at all. I'd rather expand that section with something that's actually going on in the movie. ---------User:DanTD (talk) 23:46, 16 December 2015 (UTC)

Charles Starkweather[edit]

The danger of adding something to an article that's equivalent to "The sky is blue" is that you'll immediately be attacked for OR, and your addition subtracted. Clearly, the Harvey Starkweather character (who attempts to slit a girl's throat) is a reference to Charles Starkweather, a serial killer of the late '50s. Wikipedia has to find a rational balance between the reasonable requirement that its material comes from people who are knowledgeable about a given subject, and someone stating the previously unrecognized "obvious". Doesn't the fact that I'm old enough to remember Charles Starkweather make me properly "knowledgeable"? WilliamSommerwerck (talk) 12:51, 21 January 2018 (UTC)
