Kung Fu Panda 2 (2011)

Question: How could Shen know that Po would be the baby panda from the village attacked by Shen's army?

Bunch Son

New this month Answer: Since Po's father was presumably the only panda to attack Shen's wolves head-on, there's a chance Shen could have seen him. Plus in the flashback, Shen orders his wolves to attack Po and his mother before Po's father defends them both with his mallet.

Kung Fu Panda (2008)

Question: At the beginning in the training scene, Shifu was disappointed, pointing out the problems in each of the Five's attack strategy. He said to Crane "height." What did he mean?

Bunch Son

Answer: He meant that Crane had to be higher in the sky so that Shifu wouldn't notice him when coming in for an attack.

Taken 3 (2015)

Question: When Malankov is lying at the stairs and Bryan aims a gun at him, Bryan said "You killed my ex-wife. But you're not gonna kill my daughter." and then Malankov said "Your daughter?" then he muttered something. What exactly did he say?

Bunch Son

Answer: He says "S***! We are f***** by the same man."

I'm asking about what he exactly said before saying "We are f*** by the same man." And he definitely didn't say "S-h-i-t"

Taken 2 (2012)

Question: Why did Bryan risk his and Kim's life by forcing Kim to drive through the shooting soldiers into the courtyard of the U.S. Embassy in Istanbul? They just could've stopped in front of the guarding American soldiers and gotten help. The Albanian mafias who were pursuing after Bryan and Kim were even not behind them because they got already killed by the train. Why?

Bunch Son

Answer: I'd say there is no reason other than because it's a movie. Logic and reality are often supplanted in favor of more dramatic and exciting action scenes.

Taken 3 (2015)

Question: Why did the Russian gangster who pretended to be Lenore get Bryan to buy bagels?

Bunch Son

Answer: I saw it as they needed Bryan out of the house to stage Lenore's body. Lenore had already been kidnapped the previous day and now they needed to plant her body in his home.

Phone Booth (2002)

Question: At the end of the movie, Stu was hit by a rubber bullet. Did the caller shoot it? Why didn't he kill Stu? The caller loved Kelly, didn't he?

Bunch Son

Chosen answer: The police fired the rubber bullets in an attempt to end the standoff without killing Stu. There's no indication the caller loved or personally knew Kelly. At the end, he warns Stu to maintain his new-found honesty or else face repercussions. He also tells him he's done the same thing to others who were dishonest.

Phone Booth (2002)

Question: Why would Stu avoid Mario?

Bunch Son

Answer: He doesn't have time for him.

Question: Jacob Kowalski kicks open the door of Graves' office at MACUSA. How could he just open it easily? Before he opens it, Queenie used the unlocking spell on the door, which didn't work.

Bunch Son

Chosen answer: The door was magically locked, not magically sealed. Jacob, being a muggle who hasn't relied on magic his entire life, knew he could simply break the lock when he kicked the door.

Question: Newt manged to capture all of the escaped beasts except the billwig. Why did he give up on it? Because it's just a little insect? or he had already many of the species in the case?

Bunch Son

Chosen answer: It's not known why he gave up. Newt did have to leave New York and there was no point in continuing the search at that time.

Audio problem: When Newt, Tina, Queenie and Jacob are peeking at Dougal at the department store, Newt says to Jacob and Queenie, "You two, head that way." His lips don't move at all.

Question: Why does Graves want to find an Obscurial so badly?

Bunch Son

Chosen answer: Obscurials often manifest around childhood. Children are young and influential, so Graves/Grindelwald can persuade one to let their magic free without much protest in a public place as an indestructible weapon. As we witnessed when Credence rampaged through New York, Obscurials would be far more destructive to whole cities than just casting a lot of spells.

Question: How could the Erumpent the size of a whale escape out of Newt's case without Newt around, without his help (magic)? Can Erumpents shrink themselves like Occamies?

Bunch Son

Chosen answer: Erumpents cannot change their size, however the suitcase is itself enchanted to allow objects of any size to enter and exit its magically expanded interior. Newt's presence is not required for this.

127 Hours (2010)

Question: Aron tells Kristi and Megan that Blue John Canyon is actually named after Butch Cassidy's cook, Blue John. Is this true?

Bunch Son

Chosen answer: The actual name is Bluejohn Canyon. According to online tourist info for Utah, "It appears to have been named after a minor Robbers Roost outlaw by the name of John Griffith. Griffith had one blue eye and one brown eye and thus was saddled with the nickname "Blue John." It is recognized that he kept stolen horses in the area, perhaps watering them at nearby springs. In the fall of 1899 Griffith is reported to have put in at Hite with a small boat with the intention of reaching Lee's Ferry. He was never heard from again."
