Question: With all of Voldemort's horcruxes destroyed, why does his soul go to limbo? Bellatrix and other Death Eaters aren't seen there.

New this week Answer: Unlike the death eaters, Voldemort did not just split his soul by killing. He trapped the pieces of his soul, further violating nature by creating horcruxes several times. Just doing it once is supposed to cause irreparable damage therefore doing it seven times broke his soul beyond any repair for all eternity.

New this week Question: Why did Tim have to go to treatment, but his sister didn't?

Question: When Sanchez bursts in on Lupe and her lover at the beginning, how did he know where she was?

New this week Answer: He'd been having some of his men spying on her to learn what she was doing and find out where she went.

Brian Sings & Swings - S4-E19

Question: In this episode Meg pretends to be a lesbian, when she calls herself a 'mega lesbian' it shows four other 'mega lesbians' singing something on deep voices. What song are they singing? Is it a real song?

New this month Answer: It's a real song called "Elvira". Originally by Dallas Fraizer in '66, however, this version seems to be the Oak Ridge Boys cover version. However, the mega lesbians skip the verse and just sing the chorus after the opening line.

Question: Why does Colin Farrell's hair go from long to short in the "current day" part of this movie?

New this month Answer: Because it's over a century later and he's in a different time period. The styles are different.

New this month Question: Who plays that cover of "The Rose" which is background music during the conversation just before Electro is met?

Question: Now that JL: War has been released, what is the meaning of the teaser at the end of Flashpoint? It hints at the invasion by Darkseid, however, in JL: War none of the superheroes have met and Cyborg had only just been created. Did the events of JL: War happen before Flashpoint, therefore, rendering the teaser moot? This is concerning over future animated DC film teasers (i.e. JL: War teasing Throne of Atlantis) and how much should be considered accurate, time-wise.

New this month Answer: Flashpoint Paradox is supposed to be the story of why the New 52 universe came to be. The Flash did fix what he changed, but that did cause other changes and still created a new time line. Flashpoint Paradox and JL War are not in the same continuity. But one does INDIRECTLY cause the other. Though that is more the case with the comics, and not so much for the movies, as there are differences in the adaptations. The teaser at the end of Flashpoint was more or less just teasing DC's next film to come and not necessarily a sequel. Throne of Atlantis is a direct sequel to War though.

Quantom X

Question: What happened to the girl that Schmity fell in love with and was with at the end of the first movie?

New this month Answer: While her fate is currently unknown, we do know that Brie Larson did not reprise her role for the sequel because of the story taking place in college.

Question: Since the gloves do a good job at hiding Elsa's powers, why would she need to stay away from Anna?

New this month Answer: They don't restrict her powers, as made obvious by the snow and ice in her room when she's locked in it. They just hide the obvious effects on her hands to try and keep her from thinking about it.

Greg Dwyer

Question: This is a potential plot hole but I have not seen any submissions about it yet. They said that only an act of true love can thaw the ice in the princess' heart, Olaf even says this as he is building a fire to keep her warm and says that it would he putting someone else's needs before their own. Well as he is saying this he is building a fire for her and begins to melt. He's made of snow and does just what he said, puts his own needs to stay away from heat behind the need of Anna being kept warm. Would this not also be an act of true love? He sacrificing himself almost for her? Why didn't that fix her heart?

New this month Answer: The "act of true love" would have to be done by the person with the frozen heart. Olaf was not the one whose heart was struck, Anna was. Since Olaf committed an act of true love and not Anna, Anna's heart stayed frozen.

Question: Me and my friend have debated this each time we have watched the movie and I finally decided to ask the question here to see who is right. When they are discussing their plan and saying they need the plane for it, Saito says "I bought the airline... It seemed neater." My interpretation of this is that he bought out all the tickets on that particular flight so the plane would be empty and weed out risk of interruption from other passengers, as doing that made it so there are no other passengers. But my friend thinks he means he bought the entire brand of the airline, so that he now owns the company that has that plane. Like buying out SouthWest Airlines as a company or something. So who is right? What did Saito mean? Did he buy out all the tickets for that flight, or did he buy the whole airline company?

New this month Answer: He bought out the actual airline company. If he'd bought out all the tickets for that specific journey he'd have said "I bought out the flight" or similar. It's a deliberately over the top moment of exuberance to highlight exactly how rich Satio is. I'm afraid that it is your friend who is correct, sorry.

Question: Why didn't the Dursleys just dump Harry at an orphanage, or refuse to take him? Why did they care about doing what Dumbledore asked?

New this month Answer: For one, Dumbledore never would have allowed it. The charm that protected Harry was only effective as long as Harry lived with his blood relatives, that being his aunt. Also, though Aunt Petunia would be too afraid of the consequences if she ever tried to abandon Harry, she was not evil. There was a line she would never cross that would put her sister's child (Harry) in danger. She knew his living in her household protected his life.

Question: At the bank I see Obama on the 50 bank note. Who is on the 1,000? I saw other denominations, but no clear shot of those people, but does anyone know who else is on various denominations?

New this month Answer: According to the director, Len Wiseman, the "president" on the $1000 note is his own father, Loren.

Sierra1

Question: I have seen this movie many times, but one question continues to bother me: How did the Jackal plan to escape if he was successful in shooting the president? (He had already removed his disguise).

New this month Answer: He would have just slipped away into the crowd, probably with some minor alteration to his appearance. He was a master of disguise and no one knew his real identity or what he looked like.

Question: Why did Eddie think it was unusual for Tate to request that the money vouchers be left with him?

New this month Answer: It's not necessarily that it was unusual, it's that he knew that they could be used to find Delores. He didn't want anyone seeing them.

Greg Dwyer

Question: Was there ever a PG-13 cut? If not then what's the tamest cut?

Question: Spoiler alert. When Dastan and Nizam are fighting over the knife stuck in the container holding the Sands of Time, it breaks free and they are both swept up, the scene then changing to Dastan back after he first discovers the dagger after the invasion of Alamut. He is aware of what happened in the previous time line obviously and acts to prevent the events from happening again. But what I am not clear on is how Nizam is acting at that point. Is he still aware of the previous time line? It's hard to tell by how he acts when Dastan confronts him. He was with Dastan when they went back in time to that point, but it was Dastan holding the dagger. So does that mean only Dastan knew what happened, or does Nizam remember it too?

New this month Answer: Only Dastan remembers. Nizam is acting strangely because Dastan is acting strangely. He suspects that Dastan is onto his secret plot somehow but can't figure out how Dastan could possibly know.

Phixius

Question: Did the Death Eaters have a specific reason for burning Hagrid's house?

New this month Answer: Partially it was general mayhem, but also because they know of Hagrid and Harry's close friendship. It's to send a message to Harry that no one is safe.

Question: I'm confused about Lupin's friendship with Lily, James, Peter, and Sirius. Lupin says that Lily was there for him at a time "when no one else was." Was he not friends with James, Peter, and Sirius? Didn't they learn the Animagus spell so that they could spend time with him at night?

New this month Answer: He didn't mean it quite so literally. Yes, he was friends with James, Sirius, and also Peter Pettigrew, but Lily was an especially close and caring friend to him and was among the very first to reach out to him in true friendship.
