Question: Can someone clarify where Richard Branson makes his cameo in the film? Despite knowing beforehand he was in it I could not spot him in the film. I know he played the shuttle engineer, but can anyone be more specific?

KingofallSamurai

Chosen answer: He plays the co-pilot of the shuttle - if memory serves, he's sitting on the right side of the shuttle and is seen during the conversations between the NASA pilots and NASA command, prior to the plummet back to earth.

Thisbe

Question: As Robert Langdon sinks to his knees on top of the Louvre at the very end of the film over Mary Magdalene's tomb, what is the music playing? It's very uplifting and would logically be the last track on the soundtrack, but on listening to a sample on iTunes, the style of the tracks seem completely different.

KingofallSamurai

Chosen answer: The track is "Chevaliers de Sangreal" on the official soundtrack. It's the second to the last track (13).

Revealing mistake: As Clouseau falls down the stairs when pretending to read the newspaper, you can see his legs flick up after he has supposedly fallen beyond sight - indicating he fell onto a mattress just below the camera's view.

Visible crew/equipment: As Phoebe walks into the restaurant kitchen, a crewmember's hand is visible stopping the door from swinging too much. (00:16:50)

Other mistake: When Wallace sees the meat mincer, he says 'Now that's clever', but on the English DVD, the subtitles say 'Now the fat's cooked'.

Thunderball (1965)

Question: I am completely confused about the ending of this film. I mean, the camera-geiger counter starts clicking showing the nuclear weapons are on the boat, but they are not, they are still being moved. And the weapons do get onto the yacht, but both parts of it explode right at the end. Wouldn't that destroy the bombs as well, eg. massive atomic explosion? It is probably just me, I am known to be slow, but can someone explain?

KingofallSamurai

Chosen answer: Geiger counters show when radiation, even faint traces, are present. Therefore, if nuclear weapons were there recently, it will register. The scientist told Domino he threw the detonators overboard so the bombs could not explode. Also, nukes are surprisingly durable. Being in a large explosion will not detonate the core, only a specific chain reaction will.

Trivia: When the Dementor enters the carriage, you can hear a sort of underwater bubbling sound. This is a tribute to the fact that director Alfonso Cuaron originally wanted the Dementors to be puppets filmed underwater; this was changed due to the difficulty.
