Question: If V was the one in charge of the Facility when Evey is being "tortured" then why are there more than one guard at a time in the scenes? I can understand one as V could change his voice and appearance (as never do you see their faces) but when there are more than one how does that work? I thought he didn't trust anyone?

New this week Answer: As revealed later, they are dummies.

New this week Question: Manolo's father and grandmother as well as his audience, except for Maria, are disappointed in Manolo for not killing the bull at the bull fight. At the end of the scene, the bull shakes his head in disappointment. Why would the bull be disappointed in Manolo too when the bull should know he is the victim?

Question: Why didn't Magneto simply use the Sentinel-Robots to kill everyone at the White House in front of the camera crews to establish that using robots is a bad idea, completely shut-down the Mutant fear and never expose himself?

New this week Answer: Because that is not Magneto's goal. He wants people to know about him and his cause. To bring other Mutants to his cause.

New this week Question: When the FBI take McClane and Farrell and the voice of Maggie Q is recognised by Matt - how does she know McClane is with Matt? She says to get her a line to the FBI driver and get me all the info on John McClane. At which point did they even know John McClane's name or who he was?

Question: How old is Danny supposed to be? And why in the scene were Daniel is out to eat with his mom after seeing the karate place that Johnny is in, why do they come out point to him laugh and run away?

New this week Answer: Daniel is 17. Remember that the cobra kais hate Daniel. So the fact that he had the audacity to show up at their dojo and is then spotted eating with his "mommy" amuses them. They run away because they wanted to be ready on their bikes to get him when he left the restaurant.

Question: If Isabel is such a good detective, why did she not question more why Rusty stole the paintings from the random Frenchman? She should have been able to put two and two together and realized that the random Frenchman is The Night Fox.

New this week Answer: Why should Isabel think he is the Night Fox? She knows Rusty and his friends are thieves so she would suspect that they stole them for that reason.

Question: OK, hope I'm articulating this properly: when Marty returns to 1985 from 2015 with Jen and the Doc, he places Jen at the porch of her own home. At this point, he hasn't realised yet that he's actually in an alternate 1985, because old Biff has discovered the time machine, and taken the Sports Almanac to the Biff of 1955. We all know what happens from there: Marty and the Doc now have to go back to 1955 (again) to stop Biff from getting the almanac, thus making the upcoming 1985 timeline "correct." Well, as they are successful...how come Jen is OK? Surely, as she was left in the alternate 1985 and isn't really in the "correct" 1985, she now fails to exist when Marty comes back to the "correct" 1985 to collect her at the porch? She must disappear with the alternate 1985? Or am I over thinking this?

New this week Answer: According to Doc, the timeline fixed itself around her. The best explanation I found online was since she was from the original 1985, when everything reset, it was as if she was still in the original timeline.

Question: Is Edward supposed to be Hansel and Gretel's father? If so, was there some explanation as to how or why since the head evil witch told Hansel and Gretel he was hung? Was she lying?

New this week Answer: Edward is not Hansel and Gretel's father. He helps them because he is a troll. Trolls serve witches.

New this week Question: Isn't the plot inherently flawed? Chow was already in Las Vegas, so there's no real correlation between him and the main characters, so he would've stolen Marshall's gold, whether or not he met them right?

Question: Did Rupert Grint truly get nicked in the face by debris during the wizard's chess match? All google searches come back with blogs of personal opinions.

New this week Answer: Only people who know for sure, ie. cast and crew, have neither confirmed nor denied him really getting hit. As of right now it's up to speculation.

Question: Can someone explain why there is no door to Monica's balcony? Is it normal to climb out a window to get on to the balcony in these types of apartment buildings? It doesn't seem like something that would be allowed due to building regulations.

New this week Answer: There's never been an explanation about why there was no door, but it's supposed to be an older building, and theoretically there could have been a laxer construction code when it was built and inspections were less stringent. There could conceivably have once been a door there, but, for whatever reason, it was made into a window. Of course, this likely would never have happened in real life and it simply makes it more humorous for the character to have to climb in and out the window to utilize the balcony. Also, the size of the balcony changes over the course of the series and the fire escape comes and goes.

New this week Question: What happens to Bobby Dagen after he fails to save his wife from being incinerated?

Question: Why is the thought that God is dead the sign of a true Catholic?

New this week Answer: I took it as a joke referencing the stereotype that many Catholics focus more on the doom-and-gloom aspects of their faith such as sin, eternal torment in Hell, Christ's suffering, etc., rather than on the more pleasant components like salvation, Heaven, Christ's resurrection, etc.

New this month Question: What happened to Tiffany's pet tarantula, Charlotte?

New this month Question: Which Robin is it in this movie? It's hard for me to tell. His personality is kinda like a mix of Jason Todd and Tim Drake, but he talks a lot kinda like Dick Grayson and fights with a staff like Dick from Teen Titans. So I can't quite tell which Robin it is.

Question: In the original Goldeneye game, the first level (The Dam) has a part of the level that was left incomplete but originally intended to be accessible as part of the mission. If you stand on the dam and look out from the towers or the dock on it on the side with all the water with the Sniper Rifle's scope, you can see the unfinished area on the edge of the map left there. So I wonder is there any such similar place in the remake of this game as sort of tribute or something. A similar inaccessible area viewable by scope? Or an area that is accessible? Or anything at all?

New this week Answer: No. There is no such area in the game.

New this month Question: Why does Glen look like a zombie, if Chucky and Tiffany are normal?
