Seeking to understand a story plot better, or to clear up confusion
about certain aspects or plot points.
Understanding the underlying concepts and themes behind the
film/TV-show and its different interpretations. Not to be used for
direct plot discussions.
Plot-explanation are for questions that just clarify the what happened in a film. Analysis tends to go deeper, digging into themes prevalent in the movie and WHY characters make certain decisions.
A REALLY good example of an analysis question is Ankit's question: What was the significance of Northern cardinal?. He noticed a recurring piece in the movie that isn't explicitly explained in the movie, leading to a deeper level of questions about WHY that was included and what it represented.
A REALLY good example of plot-explanation is What really happened in Memento?. This movie is very confusing and doesn't follow a linear plot, so asking what the actual order of events is makes perfect sense for this sort of movie.
