comment When is the last sound of a syllable unvoiced?
The key in Handschuh and Tagfalter is that the fricatives sch and f are both unvoiced. Which carries over to the preceding consonant. Conversely, the l in Handlung is a voiced sonorant, so it would require extra effort to unvoice the d in front of it. (This is not unsimilar to how s is voiced when enclosed between two voiced sounds, e.g. between two vowels.)

comment What movies are good for learners who want to improve their grammar and vocabulary?
@Arthaey: I see answers mentioning two, three, even four movies at once. If your answer is to be deleted, then so are those.

@AbrahamJP: no. I meant, please make your question less subjective. Not by editing tag wikis, but rather by editing the question itself.

Please define: "beginner", "good", "worth buying". All of these are highly subjective.

If we really want this answer to be deleted, we should post every movie mentioned in it as a separate answer first.

comment Bedeutungsunterschied zwischen “hätte machen sollen” and “sollte gemacht haben”
You didn't explain it. You just said that it isn't an infinitive. I am merely supplying the actual term used by linguists. Do note the Ersatz- part.

Re: "a special form of Partizip II", the term you are looking for is Ersatzinfinitiv.

comment Warum heißt es “Folgende Dinge tun etw.” aber “Die folgenden Dinge tun etw.”?
Aber es ist an den Numerus angepaßt. Der Plural von "folgender/folgende/folgendes" ist nunmal "folgende". Die Frage in der Überschrift ist viel interessanter.
