Stuart Little 2 picture

Question: Why did Stuart continue trusting the Canary when she lied to him and the whole family?

Chosen answer: Probably because he could see that she was hurt at what she did and also because earlier in the movie, he said "When you're friends with Stuart Little, you're friends for life". Also if you wanna look at it another way, him helping her could be payback for her saving him from the sink. It's just a long term friendship they have.

Die Another Day picture

Question: In "The World Is Not Enough" Bond, using his intuition, correctly assessed that Elektra King had sided with the villain. So why did he never suspect for a second that Miranda Frost had done the same in this film?

Chosen answer: Bond's suspicions about Elektra King were triggered by his discovery that her head of security, Davidov, was working with Renard. With Miranda Frost, there was nothing that would have led Bond to believe she was a double agent working for Graves/Moon in any capacity other than her undercover MI6 assignment.

Question: On all the TV's that are in the lab say CNW in the bottom corner. Does anybody know what that stands for?

Chosen answer: Since CNN no longer allows their logo to be used in films, CNW was the filmmakers' way of portraying an all news network.

Ice Age picture

Question: In the beginning of the scene with the dodos, there is one dodo who shouts "Prepare for the ice age." Does anyone know who he is or what other movies he's been in? His voice is so familiar that I'm sure he's done another cartoon character's voice, but I can't remember who it is.

Chosen answer: There are four people who do the voice for the dodos. They are Peter Ackerman, P.J. Benjamin, Josh Hamilton, and Chris Wedge (who also voiced Scrat and directed the movie). I checked their backgrounds, but I did not see any previous cartoons done by them. Also, of the four, it is possible you have seen Josh Hamilton or heard him before, because he has been in quite a few films, but I am not sure he is the one who voiced the dodo who said prepare for the ice age.

K-19: The Widowmaker picture

Question: Why attempt Russian accents in a film that is purely Russian? The star, Harrison Ford, doesn't even pretend to be Russian. Why should anyone else?

Charles Austin Miller

Answer: Harrison Ford does attempt a Russian accent in this film. It's a very slight, very bad attempt but he's definitely trying. Audiences come to expect accents in films such as these for a heightened sense of immersion. Hearing American accents from supposedly Russian characters can sometimes be jarring to an audience, even if the characters are speaking English. This of course isn't always the case and plenty of films have actors speaking in their natural accents while they are playing foreign characters. The director of this film chose to have his actors speak with Russian accents, with extremely poor results pretty much all around.

28 Days Later picture

Question: Why do some people infected with the rage just die while others spread it and have to die out by starvation? For example, why did the main character's parents die lying peacefully in bed instead of while foraging for others to infect and eventually starving to death?

Chosen answer: Jim's parents did not get infected with Rage. They decided to commit suicide, hence the pills and alcohol beside the bed. They basically decided that it was better to die than become infected, hence the message on the back of the picture. Those that are infected with Rage, the length of time it takes to die probably relates to how they were infected. If they were infected through the mouth or something similar then they would live for a while, if they were infected through a serious wound then obviously they would become infected but would not live as long because of the serious injury.

Panic Room picture

Question: I don't really understand why Jodie Foster's character didn't tell the police something was wrong when they came to the door. I know she was worried for her daughter but the robbers couldn't overhear and she could have asked the police to come back later, giving her a chance to smash the cameras. Also, considering that she emphatically denied there was anything wrong, why did the police return later with all the guns etc?

Chosen answer: One doesn't ask the cops to come back later, especially when one's daughter's life is a stake. Also, the cops came back because they just didn't believe her and felt that something was up (call it intuition).

The Count of Monte Cristo picture

Question: When Zatara goes to Mr. Morell's house to find out information about Dantes and about the others that he wants revenge on, why do they keep showing Morell's granddaughter looking at Zatara? Does she realize that he really is Dantes or is it some other reason?

Chosen answer: I believe it's just because there is a dirty smelly man that she doesn't recognise visiting her ailing father, she just wants to keep an eye on things.

Men in Black II picture

Question: I never really got the line "it came with a black dude, but he kept getting pulled over". What was so funny?

Piemanmoo

Chosen answer: It's referring to the innate racial prejudice some people have - an inflatable black guy driving a nice car got pulled over, whereas an inflatable white guy had no problems.

Star Trek: Nemesis picture

Question: Wouldn't Shinzon have had to know where the enterprise is being assigned in order lure them to pick up B-4? Data's brain has a safeguard so his positronic energy signature cannot be tracked. And how did he know a different ship instead of the enterprise wouldn't come to Remus to pick up B-4?

Answer: Long range sensors can show the general location of specific ships (this is part of the reason Romulans and Klingons use cloaking devices). All Shinzon has to do is find a remote planet close enough to the Enterprise that would cause them to be the most prudent choice to investigate. It's definitely a gamble but not one that is made without calculation.

Road To Perdition picture

Question: What town did the Aunt Sarah live in? I thought the name of the town was Perdition, to use it as a pun on the title.

Chosen answer: Aunt Sara lives in a fictional town called Perdition that is located on the banks of Lake Michigan. Tom Hanks is going there, but the title is a metaphor referring to being on a path leading to hell and damnation.
