Toy Story 3 (2010)

New this month Question: How come Andy didn't give his old toys to Molly?

adamtrainman@aol.com

New this month Answer: More than likely she didn't want them. Besides Barbie the toys never really speak of Molly at all, so it's likely she rarely ever played with them, if at all.

The Mask (1994)

Question: Why is Stanley Ipkiss wearing different pyjamas the morning after his second transformation of the Mask? He was wearing the original ones when he put on the Mask the second night.

adamtrainman@aol.com

Answer: Because his pyjamas got torn when he was at the Coco Bongo - when he's shot at as the Mask, the piece of his tie that falls off transforms back into his pyjamas.

Apollo 13 (1995)

Question: How come Marilyn can't let her daughter go out as a hippie for Halloween?

adamtrainman@aol.com

Answer: Most likely because at the time, Hippies represented the counter-culture, which is/was in direct opposition to the conservative generation of the mother and not something Marilyn would want associated with the Lovells family given their high profile.

Question: At the end, Stephanie, Newton and Johnny Five are all driving to Montana. What about Stephanie's animals and all her things at her house?

The Goonies (1985)

Question: Why can't the kids tell the reporters that they found Chester Copperpot's remains at the entrance of the cave since he's been missing and dead for years as seen in the newspaper at the beginning?

adamtrainman@aol.com

Answer: Even though it's never seen, they might have told them eventually.

The Flintstones (1994)

Question: How come Fred can't accept the briefcase from Barney and Betty at his promotion party?

adamtrainman@aol.com

Answer: When Fred received said promotion, the first order of business Vandercave gave him was to fire Barney. Since Barney would thus have no source of income, the order comes into conflict with his loyalty to his friend; his guilt makes him feel that the gift is something Barney can't afford and which he, Fred, doesn't deserve.

Aquamarine (2006)

Question: Why did Claire and Hailey not want anyone to know that Aquamarine is a mermaid?

adamtrainman@aol.com

Answer: The media circus that would surround the discovery of a real life mermaid would threaten the girl's goal of trying to get Aquamarine and Raymond to fall in love. It's exactly what Cecilia tries to do when she discovers Aquamarine's secret.

Question: Why does Peter try to kill Molly and Sam at the end when he already took the life of agent Block and is safe from Death?

adamtrainman@aol.com

Answer: He was jealous that Molly was still alive and Candice was dead.

Answer: I think that by this point Peter is too far gone to be thinking rationally or to be reasoned with. And as he says himself Molly witnessed the murdered of a federal agent, so she's got to die. And maybe Peter was just making damn sure that he was safe from Death. I mean, he's already murdered one innocent human being, so what's two more?

Hey Arnold! (1996)

Arnold's Hat/Stoop Kid - S1-E3

Question: Did Harold already know that the Stoop Kid had just left his stoop the first time? He would have known that a while ago due to a large crowd in the city or even in the newspaper.

adamtrainman@aol.com

Answer: No, he did not. He is seen getting off the bus with a suitcase, so he must have not been home for a few days so there is no way he could have known.

Sister Act (1992)

Question: What food did the nuns serve and eat when Deloris was disgusted while eating it?

adamtrainman@aol.com

Answer: It appears to be just baked beans, likely without meat or spices. Nuns will often eat a very bland diet, especially a poor order dedicated to contemplation.

Answer: Possibly gruel.

Alan Keddie

Answer: It looked to me like a stew of some sort.

Jurassic Park (1993)

Question: When Ellie was attacked by a raptor in the power shed, she was startled by the hand of Mr Arnold which turned out to be his severed arm when she grabbed it, What happened to the rest of Mr Arnold's body? The raptor's mouths aren't big enough to swallow the whole rest of his body.

adamtrainman@aol.com

Answer: In Michael Crichton's original novel (upon which the movies were based), the Velociraptors didn't consume whole human bodies. A raptor would focus on its victim's abdomen, eviscerating its prey alive, eating only the entrails and internal organs. So, we may assume the majority of Arnold's body was left elsewhere in the power shed.

Charles Austin Miller

Answer: There is no way of knowing what happened to his body. The movie would not go into gruesome details like that, and it would add nothing to the story, but most likely he was partially eaten. Ellie probably interrupted the raptor's meal and it then became focused on hunting her.

raywest Premium member

Answer: The creators of the film were not concerned with details explaining scenarios. They simply wanted to create a shocking jump scare type of scene. In reality, the man's hand would not have been severed and left in such a position.

Anthony Lemons

Question: Why did Alex kill Ellen's pet bunny and how did she get inside the house to boil it? Didn't Dan and Beth lock the door?

adamtrainman@aol.com

Answer: Because she is insane! And she picked the lock. By murdering the innocent pet bunny rabbit Alex was sending a message. She won't be ignored! She's just letting Dan know that she can get to him, or in this case his family (daughter's pet), anytime she wants to. He's not safe.

The Crazies (2010)

Question: How come the Government soldiers didn't tell the whole town Including the sheriff what's going on when they've all been captured?

adamtrainman@aol.com

Answer: Movie governments (and real-life governments) are known to keep things from the public for their own safety, whether it's a good idea or not.

THGhost

Question: Before Nina and Jake found the little girl's remains inside the safe in the office of the abandoned mill, there was a bloody handprint on it. Who does it belong to?

Zookeeper (2011)

Question: What does the Lion mean that "humans can't handle it" if they do break the code to talk to them?

adamtrainman@aol.com

Answer: Most likely that learning that animals could always talk would be a big shock to them and they wouldn't know how to handle it.
