A: If it was a director, he/she probably said "cue the film" (maybe you misheard?).

"Cue the flame" has no special meaning, what it does mean is "start the fire"... so if the scene had some sort of fire, then it would make sense to say "cue the flame".

Another more common expression is "cue the flame war". This expression is limited to online (internet) discussion forums. When people get into a heated argument or attack online, this is called a "flame war", so people may say "cue the flame war" when they think a "flame war" between users is about to start.

Synonyms of "Let" and their differences

A: "Let's go!" 「行きましょう!」
"Here we go!" よく「さぁ、始めよう」
Q: Qual é a diferença entre Let it drop. e Let the matter drop. ?
A: Well, in the context that you're asking someone to stop discussing something, " Drop it" is more common.

But to answer your question, 'let it drop' and 'let the matter drop' are the same thing.
'Let the matter drop' is being more detailed than just saying, 'let it drop.'

And while it's fine to say both those sentences, If you want to sound more like a
native, I would just say 'drop it'.
Q: Qual é a diferença entre Let's hang out together e Let's go on a date ?
A: "Hang out together" usually means to spend time together platonically (not romantically, but as friends). "Let's hang out" is often used without the added word "together".

Some people use this phrase to ask someone they are interested in to spend time with them without the pressure of calling it a date. This is especially true when the person suggesting it is worried that the other person would turn down the idea of a date.

"Let's go on a date" almost always means a "romantic date," but some people use it for any planned get-together with a friend (not as common). For example, when my friend Sally and I plan a "wine night" we will call that a date.

Does this help?
Q: Qual é a diferença entre Let me get you something to drink. e Let me give you something to drink. ?
A: If I have to go buy or serve your drink, then I will use "get". If I have your drink in my hand, then I will use "give".
Q: Qual é a diferença entre Let me see. e Please show me. ?
A: "Let me see," can be a request to see something, or what we call in English a preamble... something you'd start a sentence with like the phrase えぇとね。。。In Japanese.

"Please show me," is a direct request to see something.
