Nevertheless, I will ask you to make some effort first at finding the errors or infelicities of structure and punctuation.
  • As the man tied the rope around the tree, getting ready to descend the rope to the next cliff edge/recess, what he didn't think about was whether the tree could bear/hold his weight. As the man tied the rope around the tree, getting ready to descend the rope to the next cliff edge, what he didn't think about was whether the tree could bear/hold his weight.

  • What this director does mignificently is tell a story and shoot the story from 3 different perspective; each characters perspective and at the very end, you see how the characters are intertwined/connected. .... and at the very end, he shiws us how the characters are intertwined/connected.
  • There is a scene where the director films the actors from under the water/in the water, basically only seeing their legs wiggle in the water. under the water, but I don't know if WIGGLE is the word to use.
  • The two glasses were next to one another , the content in each was about equal so we had to look from the side of the glass to see which had more liquid in it as oppoed to from the top. ...had to look at the glass from the side, I'm not sure

Sorry, I will have to do it tomorrow; it is quite late here. Or perhaps another moderator will respond before that.
* As the man tied the rope around the tree, getting ready to descend the rope to the next cliff ledge/recess, what he didn't think about was whether the tree could bear his weight. -- If there was a typo, 'ledge' is correct; 'edge' is not.

* He went to court to get partial custody of his son.-- You're right, though, the first is possible.

* At the beginning of the movie you see the scene, but you only see the most important bits. However, as the movie progresses, the director goes back and shows the audience the same scene but in more detail, and that's how the story unfolds.

* This director tells the story magnificently and shoots it from 3 different perspectives– each character's perspective and at the very end, you see how the characters are intertwined.

* There is a scene in which the director films the actors from under the water, basically showing only their legs wiggling in the water.

* The two glasses were next to each other, and the contents of each were about equal, so we had to look from the side of the glass as opposed to from the top to see which had more liquid in it.

* Wait until I come back.

* He sawed/ (rubbed) the rope against the blade to set himself free.-- 'Rubbed' also possible, yes.

* He eats the hearts of the people he kills as supposedly they rejuvenate him/ as they have the power of rejuvenation.

* She saw the sequel years after the original, which is why she remembers it better.

* She drank the last of her first bottle of beer while we watched the end of the movie and opened the second one at the start of the second film.

This is a very poor quiz. The sentences seem to only offer choices of possibilities and typing mistakes.
Thank you Mister Micawber,

For the WIGGLE, is that the best word to use??

and I was wondering if you could take a look at one other thing for me

'Wiggle' is as good as anything.
Is the following correct?

...so we had to look from the side of the glass as opposed to from the top to see which had more liquid.

wouldn't it be :

.... so we had to look at the glass from the side as opposed from the top to sse which had more liquid.
The former is correct, and the latter is not, in spite of the awkward juxtaposition of prepositions. The phrase 'as opposed to' is fixed.
