Forrest Gump (1994)

Question: Why does the Army bus driver yell at Forrest when he introduces himself?

[email protected]

Answer: Yelling at new recruits is common since they must instill in them that they are now in a hierarchy where they are at the bottom. When people first enter the service, most bring with them their concepts that progress is accomplished through working with, versus for, others, and the kids lack discipline. The military isn't a democratic institution - it is authoritarian, and that isn't a structure most kids understand. New recruits are constantly yelled at to break their previous conditioning, and that begins with the first encounters, like with the bus driver.

Answer: Yelling is how things are done in the Army.

Question: What happened to all the dogs the Newtons rescued from the end of the first film? None of them appear in this sequel except for one dog, Sparky, in one scene, but it looks like he doesn't live with them anymore.

[email protected]

Answer: This takes place some time after the first movie so the dogs from the first movie were most likely adopted or reunited with their proper owners.

Richie Rich (1994)

Question: Why didn't the prison guards come to help after Cadbury hollered for them when being attacked by an Assassin?

[email protected]

Answer: Since the person had obviously been let in just to kill Cadbury, the guards would have been paid off to look the other way.

The Goonies (1985)

Question: How did One Eyed Willie's treasure map, the key and the story get out if Willie had been caved in for all these years?

[email protected]

Answer: According to Mikey and Mr. Walsh, one of his crewmen must have taken the map and fled when One Eyed Willie was murdering his crew. This is substantiated in the novelization.

Question: What happened to all the dead weasels after they died laughing? They're nowhere to be seen on the floor when Stupid is shown lying dead or even Greasy falls from the vehicle of the Dip Machine and is not seen anywhere before the Dip flows everywhere on the floor, Wheezy also disappeared on the ladder when it hits the rope on the wall, How did they disappear after they died?

[email protected]

Answer: It's never explained in the film, so it's up to the viewer's imagination. In the original novel, toons sort-of fade away/vanish after they die. While the novel and film are extremely different, I just always sort-of assumed that the same rule carried over- when they die, they vanish.

Jumanji (1995)

Question: Why did anyone believe Sam killed Alan? Nobody saw it happen and everybody knew Sam loved him. What made anyone believe that Sam killed his own son?

[email protected]

Answer: People believe the craziest things. I don't think it was widely believed Sam killed Alan, but that he ran away from home. Through the passed time stories pop up about murder and hiding Alan behind the walls of the house. It was just a rumour.

Question: What happened to George's real parents and family? It's been years since the plane crash. Didn't they even search for him?

[email protected]

Answer: They never mention what ultimately happens to his parents. However it's mentioned they "searched high and low" for George and never found him. The animation even shows all the passengers calling out for George, to suggest they also aided in the search.

They Live (1988)

Question: Why did all the police officers destroy the shantytown? And why did they beat the blind priest to death?

[email protected]

Answer: As part of the alien takeover, they're suppressing any resistance and discussion of the plot. They know there's a group, led by the preacher, who are onto the conspiracy and that they're somewhere in the camp. They destroy the camp to disburse them and prevent word from getting out.

Question: How did Harry and Marv know that Kevin would escape through the back door of the Plaza Hotel while waiting for him?

[email protected]

Answer: It's most likely a plot hole, but one possible explanation I can think of is that perhaps Harry and Marv observed from afar the scuffle between Kevin and the concierge and deduced that he would try to flee the hotel from a door that wasn't necessarily being watched by the hotel staff.
