Aquaman (2018)

Question: Why didn't they move? Surely they could've hidden in one of the other states mainly a landlocked one like Iowa, Nebraska, or Kentucky, as in not near an ocean.

Rob245

Answer: Yes I mean as in his father and mother should've moved, not the Atlanteans.

Rob245

The both obviously love the ocean very much, and it might have been to hard for them to live away from it. Call it a false sense of security if you will.

Brian Katcher

Answer: If you are talking about the Atlanteans, their entire civilization sunk into the ocean. Instead of leaving it, all that history, culture and technology, they adapted instead. They didn't want to leave their home and be exiled forever. A lot did go and live in other areas of the ocean but by that time humans had taken over on land, and they didn't want to interfere, nor did they need to by that time.

I think the question is asking why Arthur's parents didn't move. Why, knowing that people from Atlantis are hunting you, would you continue to live near the ocean?

Elf (2003)

Question: I thought Santa, according to all stories, only had a list of naughty and nice children so how does Walter get on there? He's an adult.

Rob245

Answer: Obviously in this version of the Santa legend adults are on the list as well, like the reporter.

Lots of stories rely on 'believers' indicating adults are involved too. So if adults are included they're on the list too.

Carrie (2013)

Question: Was that a real baby in the opening scene? The kid looked real to me and if it was how'd they make it look newborn, covered in stuff?

Rob245

Answer: Infants in movies that are supposed to be "newborn" are covered in food substances like strawberry jelly or jam. I remember reading that it is the only thing legally allowed to be used on a baby in a movie.

Rocky III (1982)

Question: Why is Mickey stubborn about seeing a doctor for his heart? Does he think this would distract Rocky?

Rob245

Answer: A lot of older people are stubborn about their health, especially if they fear the news will be bad or if there's nothing to be done. At his age, Mickey doesn't want to hear that his heart is bad, that he doesn't have long to live, and that he has to make major lifestyle changes. As an ex-boxer, he's not going to want to sit in a rocking chair eating healthy food.

Question: So was there a point to the dressing room scene between Amy Adams and Gal Gadot? She trying to seduce her to get info or was this merely an excuse to get these two half nude?

Rob245

Answer: It was definitely meant to be a sexy scene, but it isn't pointless. The two were genuinely bonding during that scene and the gradual friendship built between the couples forms a major part of the plot. The sexiness between them also sets up the scene later in the film where the two kiss and Karen discretely passes a knife to Natalie. As an aside, Karen isn't played by Amy Adams, she is played by Isla Fisher. Amy Adams and Isla Fisher share a striking resemblance and are constantly mistaken for one another.

Answer: Yes, though that was more common in the past. Several brands contain alcohol, though they're obviously not intended as a beverage. In the book 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, ' there's a scene where the inmates get drunk on a jug of industrial cough medicine.

Carrie (2002)

Other mistake: There's no reason for Jane and Will to rendezvous at a small inn given she's got a big hotel suite.

Deadly Friend (1986)

Plot hole: It seems unlikely Paul could've just taken Sam's body out of the hospital with ease and not run into security.

Deadly Friend (1986)

Character mistake: Given how smart the lead is he doesn't seem to know the proper dosage of sleeping meds he put into his mother's coffee. He placed in enough to possibly cause an overdose.

Ebbie (1995)

Trivia: When Elizabeth "Ebbie" Scrooge lets her hair down at the near end it's a sign she's shaking off her mean businesswoman persona and going back to the kind, caring self of her youth.

Movie 43 (2013)

Answer: There have been several conflicting reasons given as to why this movie is called "Movie 43." Some people claim it's a reference to "rule 43 of the internet." (Although there are also several different conflicting versions of the 43rd rule of the internet, so this explanation is pretty shaky.) Some claim it's an inside joke between the main producer and his kids about a fictional "banned film" they heard about called "Movie 43" that didn't really exist. And some people claim it's just a random title they attached to the film with no actual meaning.

Matt: I just haven't been with that many girls.
Vivian: I'm a real good teacher.

Rob245

Stupidity: Given both Emily and Luke were sweaty, the young woman who came to see Luke should've noticed his sweaty chest and heavy breathing.

Carrie (2013)

Continuity mistake: Carrie still has her shoes until she lands outside where she's suddenly barefoot, then she seems to have them back walking home.
