Question: Does the song The Darkest Side of the Night have anything to do with the movie?

Rob245

Answer: It's hard to find information about the song online. From what I can gather, I believe the song was written for the film, and a few of the lyrics do seem to have imagery that's reminiscent of the film... but I don't think the song is "about" the film itself.

Suicide Squad (2016)

Question: How come The Joker's not affected when he jumps into the vat with Quinn?

Rob245

Answer: Because he's already been into the liquid, it's how he became the Joker. He wanted Harley to be just like him.

Superman (1978)

Question: Why, in the 3 hour TV version of the movie, does Luthor waste time on that elaborate trap if he already knows, from reading Lois' interview, that bullets, fire, and cold won't stop Superman?

Rob245

Answer: He wanted to see for himself if the stories were true. Some reporters tend to exaggerate the facts and if he had any other weaknesses. He couldn't be sure the kryptonite would work.

Secretary (2002)

Other mistake: Unless there's something I'm missing, Lee, while sitting in that chair peeing, it couldn't possibly go down the side to her left. It'd go down the front.

I Love Lucy (1951)

Job Switching - S2-E4

Question: Why would Ethel do a silly thing as pinching chocolates to see what kind they were? Surely she'd realise this wasn't a good idea.

Rob245

Answer: It's a comedy show from the 1950s. Slapstick, over the top humor, and silly situations were typical of the era. Characters were written to behave in unrealistic or illogical ways purely for comic effect.

Joker (2019)

Question: What mental illness does Arthur's mother suffer from, if any? That, and why claim Arthur was Wayne's son if he wasn't?

Rob245

Answer: It isn't exactly specified in the film what illness she suffers from but she definitely appears to be schizophrenic. This would also explain why she claimed Arthur was Wayne's son.

Beethoven (1992)

Question: Maybe I'm ignorant but shouldn't all those injections of various drugs Dr Varnick gets in the chest kill him?

Rob245

Answer: It appears he only gets pierced by the needles. The plungers aren't pressed, so he isn't injected with their contents.

Monk (2002)

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: We never actually saw him commit the murder, so there's no way of knowing what he did or didn't do. The "re-enactment" was just Monk's summation and not the actual murder scene.

Desert Hearts (1985)

Plot hole: It's never explained why Frances Parker would be upset about Cay pursuing Vivian. She knows she's gay, but we're never told why she's mad.

Rob245

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: Because Frances was afraid Cay would leave her to be alone and she blames Vivian for making Cay fall for Vivian, out of fear or resentment of being alone.

The Punisher (2004)

Answer: They were actually planning on using Jigsaw as the villain in the sequel until Thomas Jane and director Jonathan Hensleigh exited the project and the studio rebooted the character with Punisher: War Zone. They probably just wanted to show the Punisher's origin first, which would allow him to be fully established by the time a sequel came around, and they would have more to screen time to establish Jigsaw.

The Punisher (2004)

Question: Since when do they leave guns of the deceased at the scene of the crime? Castle comes back some time later after the massacre and picks up several from a case.

Rob245

Answer: I'm just guessing here, but since dozens of people were killed in what was determined to be a mob hit, and since there were no next of kin, everything was probably left there and boarded up since the entire area was a crime scene that was still under investigation.
