New this month Question: What was Steve referring to when he said he'd seen Natasha flirt up close?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

New this month Answer: He was implying she had flirted with him at some point.

TedStixon

Not just an implication. We see this explicitly in The Winter Soldier.

What was it?

Natasha is constantly flirting with Steve throughout the movie.

Question: Exactly what are Bradley's powers?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: Technopathy which is the ability to control certain electrical devices and Electrokinesis which is the ability to generate, manipulate and/or conduct electricity.

Question: Why did Cap have to crash the ship in the water instead of just turning it around?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: Cap couldn't risk landing the plane without the weapons on board detonating. He crashed it into the Arctic so that no-one but himself would be killed or injured if the weapons did go off.

Question: Should Nebula not have ceased to exist after the other one was killed?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: No - as stated in the film, timelines/realities are independent from each other. Thanos/Nebula coming to "our" timeline means a new timeline is created where they don't exist any more, but we don't follow that one. "Our" Nebula isn't affected by the actions of the "alternate", because "our" Nebula's history is unchanged.

Cobra Kai (2018)

Show generally

Question: Is the actress who plays Robby's mother in season 2 the same actress from season 1?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Question: Is the woman who asks Daniel and Mr Miyagi why they were in her cab the same woman from the first movie who tells Daniel where to find Mr Miyagi so he could fix his faucet?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: Yes, it's the same woman. She is Frances Bay. In the first film she's listed as "Lady with Dog." In the third film she is listed as "Mrs. Milo." She lives in the apartment complex.

Question: What happened to Chozen after Daniel beat him? It's unlikely he'll show up in Cobra Kai.

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: There has never been any explanation of what happened to any of the characters who debuted in The Karate Kid Part II. The series Cobra Kai has so far focused only on Daniel, Johnny, and Kreese while introducing new characters. I wouldn't say it's unlikely Chosen would show up at some point, Yuji Okamoto (the actor who played Chosen) still acts regularly and could easily be brought to the series if the writers decided to focus on his character.

The Karate Kid (1984)

Question: Was Jimmy the one who Kreese made do 50 push ups on his knuckles?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: It didn't look like him. It appears to be a random student and not part of Johnny's group of friends seen throughout the film.

Well in that case, I heard Jimmy has two lines throughout the film and I figured they were both of the "yes sensei's." What are Jimmy's two lines then?

The Karate Kid (1984)

Question: What was Johnny doing in the bathroom when Daniel douses him with the water hose?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: Rolling a joint.

Question: Why did Daniel think Mr. Miyagi was making fun of him with the sweeping? He taught him how to block by waxing cars so shouldn't Daniel have figured there was something with moving the broom to teach him how to do a front sweep?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: Daniel's an impatient kid who wants everything laid out in a clear, straightforward manner. He may have thought the "wax on-wax off" incident was a one-time ploy and believes from that point on the training will be more conventional. Mr. Miyagi has other ideas about his teaching methods.

Thor (2011)

Question: Was Laufey aware it was his son who came to Jotunheim and offered to return the casket to him?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: No, there's no indication that he knows Loki is his son.

Phaneron Premium member

Question: Loki said he was impressed about Thor lying to him. When did Thor lie to him?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: Thor lied to Loki about the escape plan.

What part?

How they were going to leave the spaceship.

lionhead

About not escaping in the Dark Elves' ship, and that Fandral was there with another ship. Lying by omission.

Friso94

Question: Mr Miyagi said he taught Julie's grandfather Karate but in the first movie he never taught anyone before Daniel. Can someone explain this to me please?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: Likely the filmmakers deliberately changed the plot details to fit the new storyline, either hoping or not caring if the audience noticed. It's not uncommon for films to do this in sequels.

Question: What was Jeff talking about when he said Miles said they made a deal with the school about weeknights.

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: It's a boarding school, but Miles wants to return to his old school. Miles made a deal with his dad that he would attend the new school and stay there during the week, even though he could commute as they don't live too far away. In return, he is permitted to go home at the weekend.

Question: I've heard that many people (Ralph Macchio included) do not like this movie. Is there a reason why?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: Ralph Macchio admitted that he didn't like it as he felt that they were just making the first movie all over again and left out a lot of good stuff.

Question: Why did Mr Miyagi refuse to train Daniel for the tournament?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: He answered this question in the scene. He said karate only means something if it's used to defend honor and life, but means nothing if it's used to defend a plastic metal trophy so he doesn't want to train Daniel for a purpose he doesn't believe in.

15th Apr 2019

The Sandlot (1993)

Question: Why do they all refer to Scott by his last name?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: It's pretty common to use someone's last name as a sort of nickname, especially if the last name is fun to say like "Smalls."
