Bumblebee (2018)

New this month Question: Why didn't Frank Welker reprise his role as the voice of Soundwave for this film?

zendaddy621

New this week Answer: I couldn't find any other information, but honestly... Soundwave is barely in the movie. Probably just wasn't worth it for the production to pay Welker to come in just to record a few throwaway lines.

That '70s Show (1998)

Hyde's Birthday - S4-E23

Character mistake: Hyde says that he could be drafted into the military after his eighteenth birthday; however, this episode is set in 1978, several years after the US military draft was quietly discontinued.

Suggested correction: Although it had been discontinued, males were still required to register for the draft when they turned 18. I had to signup in 1980. Although there was no active draft we knew it could be reinstated at any time.

It (2017)

Factual error: This film is set in Maine (USA), but the war memorial shown is obviously Canadian; this is evidenced by the phrase "for King and country" engraved upon it.

A Rickle in Time - S2-E1

Question: What is the title of the piece of music playing when Beth performs field surgery on the deer? It sounds like it might be by the group Enigma, but I can't seem to find any more info about it.

zendaddy621

Chosen answer: It's called "The Enigma of Copyright" by Headphone Activist.

Simpsons Already Did It - S6-E7

Character mistake: Butters says that he watched "all 132 episodes" of the Simpsons; at the time this episode aired, 291 episodes of the Simpsons had been produced and aired.

Suggested correction: Butters is always shown as being a bit dim and slow. As a kid it's easy for him to make a mistake in thinking that there was only 132 episodes.

That's why it's called a "character mistake"; also, Butters is certainly naive, but he's hardly what I would call "dim and slow."

Superstore (2015)

Show generally

Question: Does Mark McKinney wear a fatsuit for this series or did he gain weight in real life? I ask because he was on the skinny side when he was on Kids In The Hall and SNL as well as the many films he's been in. So which is the case?

zendaddy621

Chosen answer: He's just gained weight. It looks like he slowly started gaining more weight around 2006 or so. In "Kids in the Hall: Death Comes to Town" (2010) he's noticeably heavier than his younger days (he was on SNL 21 years ago). By the time he was in "Man Seeking Woman" he looks very similar to how he looks in "Superstore."

Bishop73

Factual error: Missouri has no hills or mountains like those shown in this film; the closest would be the Ozarks in the southern part of the state, which are more rounded.

Clerks 2 (2006)

Factual error: Mountains are visible in the background during the go-kart scenes, giving away the fact that this movie was filmed in California rather than New Jersey where it is set.

The Goldbergs (2013)

A Chorus Lie - S3-E2

Factual error: A key plot point of this episode is the revelation of the Milli Vanilli lip-syncing scandal, which happened in the fall of 1990, outside the 1980s setting of the series.

zendaddy621

Trivia: Of all the child actors who played main characters in this film, Julie Dawn Cole is the only one who continued to act into adulthood.

Watchmen (2009)

Question: Did the Comedian know that he was the biological father of Laurie/Silk Spectre II? His interaction with her during a flashback doesn't seem to indicate so, but since Sally knew the truth of the matter, wouldn't the Comedian have at least some suspicion that he was Laurie's father?

zendaddy621

Chosen answer: Yes he knew, when he first meets Laurie and Sally scolds him for talking to her he is distraught and asks why he can't talk to his own... he cuts off there but he is saying he knows she's his daughter.

Show generally

Question: Who exactly shouts, "Hello Wisconsin!" at the end of the opening credits? I've long assumed it was Topher Grace, but it sounds as though it could be Danny Masterson or Ashton Kutcher as well.

zendaddy621

Chosen answer: Danny Masterson is the one who screams "hello Wisconsin".

Pulp Fiction (1994)

Question: Vincent and Mia are shown smoking cigarettes inside Jackrabbit Slim's, but California has long been known to have some of the most restrictive anti-smoking laws in the US. While I'm aware that neither Vincent nor Mia was exactly law abiding, was smoking in restaurants in California still allowed at the time this film was made?

zendaddy621

Chosen answer: California passed a ban on restaurant smoking in 1994, as part of labor policies meant to protect the health of employees (such as bartenders, waitresses and bellhops) from the risks of secondhand smoke. However, "Pulp Fiction" was produced in 1993 and was released in 1994. The actual law did not take effect until 1995.

Doctor Strange (2016)

Question: When Dr. Strange gets into the accident near the beginning of the film, why didn't his car's airbag deploy? Wouldn't such an expensive car have all kinds of standard safety features?

zendaddy621

Chosen answer: The airbag did deploy. However, the deployment occurred when the car first crashed and we see the accident from the outside, so we can't see it. Once we get a shot of the interior, you can see the airbag is sticking out from the steering wheel, but (unlike what some movies would show you) airbags deflate very rapidly after a crash, so you may have missed it.

Factual error: In the grocery store where Gilbert works, loaves of Mrs. Baird's bread are seen on the shelves; Mrs. Baird's is a Texas-based bakery whose products would not be available as far away as Iowa.

zendaddy621

Trivia: Johnny Depp was unhappy about the fact that he spoke negatively about Darlene Cates (Mama) while he was in character as Gilbert; he would frequently and sincerely apologize to her between takes.

General questions

I'm trying to remember the title of a film probably from the late 80s or early 90s. The main plot centers around a teen promoting his favorite local band called "Severed Heads In A Box" or something similar. There were also numerous subplots such as the main character having a crush on a girl who herself has a crush on the band's singer, his sister trying to stop him from having a big party at his house, and a lot of other things going on. I've tried to find the film on IMDb, but I don't have enough info to go on. Thanks in advance for any help.
