THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

New today Question: Did C-3PO and R2-D2 appear in this film?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

New today Answer: I was wondering about this, too. C-3PO did not appear in Solo, and I cannot find any Internet reference pertaining to R2-D2 being in it. Curiously, Anthony Daniels, the actor who has played C-3PO in all the other Star Wars movies, makes a cameo appearance in Solo as another character (Chewbacca's friend).

New this month Question: Why did Hagrid cover up that creature when Dumbledore arrived?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

New this month Answer: Hagrid tended to collect magical animals that were illegal to own. In Philosopher's Stone, he kept a baby dragon, which was illegal. The creature he was hiding was probably a banned animal.

New this month Question: Why are they all so shocked that Kevin called Frank a cheapskate? He is. He also just practically admitted that he's not paying for this trip?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

New this month Answer: I think they are just more shocked with how brazen Kevin is with telling off his uncle.

New this month Question: Peter said Aunt May would stop him being Spider-Man if she found out who he was, so why hasn't she, given she found out the truth at the end of Spider-Man: Homecoming?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

New this month Answer: This may be addressed in "Spider-Man: Far From Home" but without any sort of onscreen confirmation thus far, all we can do is speculate. Perhaps Peter was mistaken about how Aunt May would feel about him being Spider-Man, or he could have simply told her he would stop being Spider-Man but lied about it.

New this month Question: Why didn't they just cast Avada Kedavra on the Horcruxes and then disapparate before the ministry could find them as I think they can detect the unforgivable curses being used?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

New this month Answer: The avada kedavra curse did not work on the horcruxes while there was more than one in existence. That was why baby Harry survived Voldemort's attempt to kill him using that curse, and why Voldemort could not be killed until all the other horcruxes were destroyed. The horcruxes could only be destroyed by a few methods, such as with basilisk venom or fiendfyre. The horcrux inside Harry was later killed by Voldemort using avada kedavra, but that seems to be because the other horcruxes had already been destroyed. Voldemort never knew that Harry carried a horcrux inside him.

raywest Premium member

Actually Harry survived Voldemort's attempt to kill him because of the love of his mother and her sacrifice. Voldemort's killing curse rebounded upon that love spell and caused a piece of his soul (already shattered from killing Harry's parents) to transfer to Harry. The reason Voldemort's killing curse worked to kill the horcrux inside Harry was because Harry was simply killed by the killing curse along with the horcrux and then the resurrection stone resurrected Harry, but not the horcrux.

lionhead

That's true, his mother's love protected him. However, at the end, Harry wasn't dead-he was in-between life and death and he had the choice to either go back to the living world or "move on." He chose to return. The resurrection stone did not play a part in reviving him. There is still much confusion and debate over exactly when and how the horcrux inside Harry was destroyed.

raywest Premium member

He had the resurrection stone in his hand when he confronted Voldemort in the forest, that's why he had a choice, because of the stone. After resurrecting the stone was left behind.

lionhead

That is incorrect. Harry is holding the Resurrection Stone while he is speaking to the spirits of his mother, father, Lupin, and Sirius. Just before he leaves them, he drops the stone, and it is seen falling from his hand to the ground in the forest "before" he goes to meet Voldemort. (In the book, the stone is left in the forest so that no-one will be able to use it.) The stone did not play any part in Harry being revived. You can watch the clip on YouTube.

raywest Premium member

Hm, yeah all right. But then he didn't actually use it, only to talk to deceased loved ones, which bothers me and when I'm bothered the ground quakes. I always thought its power worked on till the moment he got killed and then resurrected him.

lionhead

The Resurrection Stone was only to bring back someone else from the dead, not one's own self. It had to be used by a living person who called for a dead person to return to the earth, though as Hermione read from the book (when the Trio was at the Lovegood house), the dead person was never really resurrected to a full living being again and did not understand the world they were brought back to.

Logan (2017)

New this month Question: Why was Charles mumbling about Mrs Muffet and the spider when we first see him? Is it a side effect of his disease?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

New this month Answer: He's old and going senile, and is also quite sick and experiencing seizures. It would seem all the inane things he's droning on about (including Mrs. Muffet and the Spiders, and reciting a Taco Bell commerical) are just a result of that - he falls into delirious states where he acts completely insane before he gets his medicine, which calms him back down.

TedStixon

My impression, and I may be wrong, was that he was hearing random thoughts from people in the area and repeating them.

Jason Hoffman

New this month Question: Why did Hermione and Ron seem so surprised when they saw Harry? Or were they just embarrassed that he heard and saw them arguing?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

New this month Answer: I wouldn't say they were surprised, exactly. They hadn't seen Harry all summer and their reunion was a bit awkward because Ron and Hermione were squabbling with each other. They didn't expect to see Harry at that moment.

Logan (2017)

New this month Question: When Logan said "oh so this is what it feels like" was he referring to dying or what Charles was talking about at the house?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

New this month Answer: I believe he was referring to two things here. The obvious one is dying, however I'm thinking that's less likely. As even though Logan always would heal before and come back, he has "died" many many times in previous events and would have felt that until his body regenerated enough for him to come back. Other than on maybe a religious level and if feeling the soul disconnecting from his body differently on a permanent death, it would be the same. What I really think he is referring to... is love. He is a father now, and accepting of it. His daughter is right there with him and crying over him, something that probably nobody has ever done for him in his life or a very long time. He is feeling that genuine unconditional love for the first time. He gets to experience what it feels like to be loved as a father moments before he dies, and I believe that is what he is referring to.

A Computer, a Plastic Pony, and a Case of Beer - S1-E12

New this month Question: Why does Mary grab her kids and leave just because George bought beer? I know they were fighting a little about money the night before but George used his own money, so what does it matter?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

New this month Answer: Mary is highly religious and completely against any form of alcohol as shown in Big Bang Theory numerous times.

New this month Question: Is it true that the story Nick was telling Cap about his grandfather is based on Samuel L Jackson's grandfather?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

New this month Answer: Here's what he said in an interview: The thing with him is, you don't know if he's making up a story to get you to do a certain thing or if he's actually giving you a piece of himself. The great thing for me about that particular story is that is what my grandfather did when I was a kid. He actually ran an elevator in a hotel in Chattanooga, Tenn. That was his job. I used to go down there and sit in the elevator with him while he took people up and down. He got tipped that way and had money in his pocket or in a bag - and a little gun. He always had a pistol with him, some brass knuckles. I did not write that, it was just in there. It totally just happened that way. I chuckled about it. I was trying to figure out if I had talked about my grandfather in some interview somewhere years ago or something and somebody read it and put that in there. I never found out if that was the case. I think it's a true story for him.

New this month Question: Why did the trio watch Buckbeak being executed?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

New this month Answer: Because they had some small hope that something would happen that prevented it, they stayed to see if a miracle would happen basically. They didn't want to see it of course, but they felt it too terrible to just not know if there was any hope it wouldn't happen and then miss it.

lionhead

But how could they tell from the top of that hill? They were so far away they couldn't hear a thing.

They could see the executioner from where they were standing, just not very well or entirely. They saw him swinging the ax, but not what he was hitting. They just assumed it was Buckbeak.

raywest Premium member

New this month Answer: They didn't actually see Buckbeak being executed because he never was. They were far enough away that they only partially saw the executioner wield the axe, but he was actually chopping a pumpkin out of frustration because Buckbeak had disappeared. If they had been closer, they most likely would not have looked at all, not wanting to witness such a gruesome scene.

raywest Premium member

Thank you but I was meaning to ask why they stayed on that hill to watch instead of returning to the common room?

It's pointless to speculate what their reasoning for watching was because it really comes down to it being a plot device. The audience has to think that Buckbeak has been killed in order to propel the story forward. That is achieved by having HR&H stop atop the hill and watch what they think is the execution. It also is to convey their sense of grief and hopelessness.

The Closet Reconfiguration - S6-E19

Question: Assuming I've got the right episode, when Howard took Sheldon home, why didn't he just tell Sheldon not to tell anyone what was in the letter? If he had, Sheldon would have told the girls that Howard told him not to say.

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: Sheldon is extremely bad at keeping a secret. He actually doesn't want to keep a secret and tries to find or create a justification to tell it so the pressure will be off him.

lionhead

Question: Why didn't Thor go for the head?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: While it's purely speculation, here are few ideas: 1. He didn't think he needed to. He now possesses the most powerful weapon in the universe and thought hitting Thanos in the chest would be enough. 2. He may have aimed for the head, but Thanos was trying to repel the axe, which caused the aim to be off. 3. He wanted Thanos to die slowly so that he could deliver his "I told you..." line.

Jason Hoffman

Plus, he didn't know Thanos already had all the gems.

lionhead

Or just because the head is a much smaller target and Thor was pretty far away, even when throwing a magic axe.

Cobra Kai (2018)

Show generally

Question: I thought Johnny and Daniel patched things up at the end of the first movie? So why do they still hate each other?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: The first episode really only shows that Johnny still hates Daniel. Daniel is shown being friendly with Johnny when Johnny visited the car shop. Johnny was down and out and he was most likely jealous of Daniel's success. Only when Johnny was still giving Daniel a hard time did Daniel start feeling the hate again.

Question: How did Lavagirl's boot fall off? Also, how come she only has her leg when she isn't wearing the boot? Where's her foot and sock?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: We aren't told for certain, but it was most likely before the events of the first "Guardians of the Galaxy" film.
