Phone Booth (2002)

Question: In the beginning, Stu tells Adam to messenger a bottle of Jameson's over to Lana who works at Page Six. He also wants a note saying "Irish chicken soup" to be delivered to her. What does he mean? And what is Jameson's?

Bunch Son

Chosen answer: Jameson's is a brand of Irish whiskey. He is making a joke that the whiskey is food, the same as chicken soup.

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.

Chosen answer: Stu was reaching for the gun that the caller had planted in the phone booth as incriminating evidence.

Question: Why would Stu avoid Mario?

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.

Phixius

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."

Continuity mistake: There is a scene of Alice being dragged by a line behind Isaacs' tank ahead of a horde of zombies. There is no other line next to running Alice. When she climbs upon the tank to attack the guard, another line with torn hands is seen being dragged on the road, where Alice was dragged.

Flightplan (2005)

Question: At the very beginning of the movie, Kyle sits on the bench alone in the empty subway station. She looks very shocked or frightened. Why is that? Because at that time, her husband David is not dead. He walks up to Kyle and they get on the yellow subway train home.

Bunch Son

Chosen answer: It's never explained. She might have been concerned about something at work or there were problems with her marriage that she is contemplating. Personally, I attribute it partly to Jodi Foster's acting style. She tends to play scenes in an overly intense manner.

Flightplan (2005)

Question: Why did Kyle want to sit in the courtyard with her husband at the beginning? She looked quite serious. What is the significance?

Bunch Son

Chosen answer: There's no explanation, but there seems to be some sort of tension or discord going on between them that may be putting some strain on their marriage. They may have wanted a more private place to discuss something where they knew their daughter could not overhear. They also acted this way when they're in the subway station, communicating that all is not right between them.

Flightplan (2005)

Revealing mistake: In the beginning of the movie, at the scene in the morgue, dead David's eyelids very slightly shake right before his casket is closed.

Question: At the very beginning of the movie, there is a shot of Andrea's diary. On the calendar page, it says "ELIAS-CLARKE HUMAN RESOURCES" and next to it, "Get a card + Prez for Jill." Who the heck is Jill? The name of Andrea's girlfriend who works at a gallery is Lily, though.

Bunch Son

Chosen answer: Andy certainly has more girlfriends than only Lily. Jill is just someone she knows or who is a relative that does not appear in the film. This is meant to give substance to Andy, showing she has a busy life and interacts with many people.
