Questions about specific movies, TV and more

This page is for questions relating to a specific movie/TV show. If you have a more general question, ie. remembering the name of a movie, or want to know how an aspect of filmmaking works, please check out the general movie questions section.Click the edit button below a question to answer it or amend the existing answer, if needed. Got a question about movies/TV shows that the IMDb or Google can't help with? Just click "submit something" in the navigation bar. I'll post it ASAP and hopefully someone will answer soon! Members get e-mailed when any of their questions are answered.

New today Question: 1955 Doc doesn't believe there is going to be rain and neither does the weatherman as a matter of fact. Why then do we see everything wet long before the big storm?

New today Question: Why weren't there hints to the characters deaths like in the other movies? Is it because this was a prequel to the first one? Just wondering.

New today Question: How many letters of marque are there and how exactly they work? The governor said when freeing Elizabeth that there was only one and it was meant for Jack, but Will agreed to the deal with Becket anyway, and he tells Elizabeth that this is going to save them both.

New today Question: For the original, the sequel and the remake, what materials did the crew use to create the blob and how did they get it to move?

Question: What did Jameson mean when he said to Hoffman "I'll give you ten percent off. Ah, make it five percent?" What's Hoffman getting a percentage off of?

New today Answer: Jameson is referring to giving Conway's department store a discount for moving their advertising in the "Daily Bugle" from page 6 to page 7...then page 8, in order to accommodate a story about Spiderman on the front page ("with a decent picture this time!"). He's telling Hoffman to give them a discount to appease the major client. But, in a moment of poking fun at Jameson's cheapskate tendencies, he immediately changes the offer from a discount of 10% to 5%.

Question: Why did Suge Knight hate Jerry so much? They didn't even talk to each other at all in the movie.

New today Answer: Suge Knight saw Jerry as a threat, and rightfully so. He had control over E and the others, and knew far more about the business than he did. Which meant he had power, something Suge wants complete control of.

Question: When freeing Sirius Black, then flying around the School, why did they whoop and holler and make so much noise if they were trying to be secretive?

New this week Answer: They were still high enough in the air where there was little chance of being heard or if they were, it would be muffled. Also, they're kids. They are not always capable of restraining their emotions or enthusiasm when they should. It is also a means to heighten the scene's mood (enthusiasm and success) and show the audience what emotions the characters are feeling at the time.

Question: Where was David Mann actually going? And where from? As in, which states? He seemed to be travelling for hours even before he met the truck and seemed to have a long way to go yet.

New this week Answer: The movie opens with him in downtown Los Angeles, California, so he's probably from there or somewhere in Southern California. He's heading to Bakersfield, California, which is north, about 2 hours away. In the short story, he's heading to a client in San Francisco. However, in the film he gets off the main freeway running from LA to Bakersfield (IH-5) and takes Highway 14 towards Canyon Country.

New this month Question: Is there some significant to the fact that both Andie's and Ben's first and last initials are the same?

Question: What is the make and model of the motorcycle that Johnny Blaze rides?

New this week Answer: If you're talking about during his performances, it's a 2000 Buell X1 Lightning. He's also seen on a Harley-Davidson Sportster, I believe, when jumping through the ring of fire. If you're talking about his other bike, it's a Harley-Davidson Panhead.

New this month Question: Was it Rowley or really one of the kids who told the story of how the kids fell in the ditch?

Question: How did Anton find Llewellyn's home?

New this week Answer: Anton has been shown to be a keen hunter, a master of his surroundings (even discovering Llewellyn in the hotel after the transceiver was destroyed). We never see how he finds the house, but he would have got there no matter what.

Question: How is Biff from the future able to use the time-machine? He has to: 1) Turn on the time circuits, 2) Set the time destination, 3) Accelerate to 88 MPH, 4) Know to add matter to Mr. Fusion.

New this week Answer: It isn't overly complicated. Once the time circuits are switched on (something you can probably figure out by fiddling with buttons) there is a big section labelled "destination". Logically you would input the day you want to go to. He could then take off and just start driving fast - he wouldn't need to know it has to be 88mph, but the fact that it's built into a car definitely implies speed is necessary. He lives in the future where Mr Fusion exists, so adding stuff to it would just be logical to him.

New this month Question: After Del Blaine finds out Jimmy isn't Clark Devlin why did she want his watch and shoes? I understand her wanting everything else but not the watch and shoes.

Question: Why didn't Gretchen and Karen stay friends? (at the end of the movie it shows Gretchen sitting with a different group of friends) I thought Regina was the only one they didn't really like.

New this month Answer: Gretchen had simply found a new group of friends with the Vietnamese girls; just because she and Karen no longer sat together in the cafeteria didn't mean they were no longer friends at all. As Cady said in her closing narration, the "Plastics" disbanded at the end of the school year because they had all found new things to belong to: Regina was now a star player on the school's lacrosse team, Cady stayed with the "Mathletes", Karen started giving the school weather report, and Gretchen, as mentioned before, hung out with the Vietnamese girls. The four remained on friendly terms, though.

Question: Why did MI6 shoot at Bond after he refused to give them his gun? Surely it's not worth killing one of their agents over. And why did M say there's too many people? There was nobody around.

New this month Answer: At that moment, he was not one of their agents; M had just stripped him of his licence to kill and suspended him. So he was, essentially, a rogue agent about to escape...of course they were going to try and stop him. M stopped them because 1) they were in an MI6 building in the middle of an American city and gunfire would have drawn unwanted attention (perhaps giving away the location to enemy agents), and 2) unlike the faceless security forces trying to shoot Bond, he had a personal relationship with Bond and didn't want to see him injured or killed.

Question: Was Bond having an affair with Della?

New this month Answer: No, they were not having an affair. He just liked her.

Season 6 generally

Question: How does Chris still have his powers when he travels to the past, but the witches did not when they went to the past?

New this month Answer: With Chris being from the future (and being half-witch, half-whitelighter), he must know about the fact that his aunts can't use their powers in the past. Therefore, he would think to write an advanced spell so that his powers can be used.

New this month Question: When Katniss asks Johanna about Annie why does Johanna kind of stutter when answering?

Question: I was wondering why the man and woman in the last trap didn't use the woman from the bathtub to give the pints of blood? They could have carried her into the room because the door stayed open for about forty seconds.

New this month Answer: Assuming the woman in the bathtub was able to be moved safely the amount of blood gained from her, while still being helpful, would probably not be enough to save the final two survivors from self harm. Without the heart pumping blood you would only get the blood that was in her arm at the moment. You would have to lift her or raise her so gravity would get other blood moving to get enough. Which the final two possibly could have done, but stress of the situation clouded their judgement.
