The Godfather (1972)

Question: How does Don Vito Corleone know that a meeting was going to be setup for Michael's assassination?

Answer: Being a Don for such a long time, Vito has probably seen most every dirty trick used by the other families.

Answer: The Corleones are the most powerful of the New York Five Families. With Don Corleone now retired, Michael is perceived as an inexperienced and weak successor, making him a likely target for the other dons. He would be the most vulnerable at a closed meeting. Vito knows this and that if Michael were assassinated, the Corleone empire would fall apart and their territory taken over.

The Matrix (1999)

Question: How exactly does the blue and red pill work? How does Neo taking the pill trigger him to wake up?

Chosen answer: The pills are the Matrix representations of computer programs. The red pill contains code designed to disrupt Neo's input/output signals, so that Morpheus' team can pinpoint his physical location in the real world. Once located, a signal of unspecified type is sent from their ship, which presumably serves to wake Neo up.
