Question: Why doesn't it explain what happened to Angie or Jill V.? Also when Alice gets in to Umbrella at the end she says to the program " I met your sister, she was a real bitch." Is this ref. to the Angie program in the first movie and Alice said "I met your sister" does this mean that Angie had a sister the whole time we didn't know about?

Chosen answer: No, Angie was an only child, but Doctor Ashford created the Red Queen A.I. interface through his daughter's likeness. The most logical explanation for this is that Umbrella has a lot of underground facilities like the hive and therefore mass-produced The Queen in order to protect each installation. As far as Jill is concerned Sienna Guillory (who plays Jill) wasn't up to making another Resident Evil film, so the script went around her.

Question: In the movies FD1 and FD3 there is a "theme song" which plays before someone dies (Rocky Mountain High FD1, Turn Around Look at Me FD3), is there any reason why there is no song for this movie?

Answer: Eather it was written without the theatrics or it could have easily been the editor's/director's choice in order to keep the suspence going without giving anything away.

The Jackal (1997)

Question: What did the Jackal put on the rear handle of his van that caused such a severe and swift reaction on contact?

Answer: It's a shellfish poison that goes straight into the bloodstream and attacks the respiratory system (as stated on the director's commentary).

Chosen answer: Her boyfriend, who never appeared in the movie.

Question: Anyone know how he got into Noah's office towards the end? I saw him go up the stairs, but it appears he would need a key card to get in without breaking anything.

Answer: Knowing Bourne, he must have had a keycard on his person. Remember that Landy guided Bourne back to the CIA New York Headquarters; she could have easily slipped a keycard in the Taxi Cab when Bourne was being picked up at the airport. All he would have to do then is avoid being detected by using the fire exits (hence going through the back).

Question: Is the "Fire Sale" procedure used in this movie a real-world idea or just a movie creation? Could it ever happen?

Answer: It is strictly hypothetical and most likely couldn't happen without having many, many insiders and the best hackers in the world, but even then, who knows if that could be probable in a "Post 9/11" climate.

Question: After they search Leary's hotel room, they find a piece of paper that says "SW SKELLUM LA." We learn that the SW stands for Southwest (a bank he was using) and SKELLUM is a phone number. What does the LA mean?

Chosen answer: LA is short for Los Angeles, which refers to the city Leary attempts to assassinate the president in.

Question: Does the sniper on the roof that Nemesis blows up with the rocket launcher have a name?

Answer: No, he is not referred to anyone from the video games, nor does anyone call him by his name. He is just known as "the sniper".

Question: Why do they never show Mandy? They obviously did it on purpose.

Answer: Most likely just to leave it up to your imagination.

Question: At the end, when Riley meets the 'freedom fighters', why aren't they bothered by the zombies who are still walking around, or the defences being completely useless, as the zombies tore the defences down or went through the river?

Answer: Riley feels that they have just the right to be there as the living do. Besides, those zombies survived all the missles and are coming to the city while Riley and the gang are leaving. So why waste the ammunition?

Die Another Day (2002)

Question: What happened when Bond was fighting Zao in the Cuban clinic? He threw a bottle of flammable liquid at something on the wall, which seems to have activated a magnet of some sort. What was that system, and what is it intended for?

Answer: When the bottle hit the machine it hit the on button, so it activated the Magnetic Resonance Imaging (or also known as MRI for short) machine which scans your body using very powerful magnets.

Flightplan (2005)

Question: So no-one saw Jodie Foster bring her kid on the plane, I understand that. The plane was empty when the 2 of them boarded as they were the first to board. There wasn't anyone else on the plane and as soon as they got to their seats her little girl bent down on the floor to play with a toy, so I fully understand that no-one saw the girl. What I want to know, is how did the hijackers know she was going to be boarding first? Had she boarded much later with other passengers then SOMEONE would have seen the kid, and that would have totally foiled the plan. How could they have banked on her boarding first?

pierpp

Chosen answer: He didn't know for sure, but he had a hunch. As far as he could tell she would arrive early to register the body for the U.S. and they would let her board the plane first (as a common courtesy, since her husband died) Plus, he knew that she had knowledge of planes and that it was her interest to see a new model of an aircraft that she helped build before it was to take off.
