Halloween Kills (2021)

Question: Why does Michael head back to his old house and why does Karen go inside it by herself?

Rob245

Answer: It was his own personal man cave, he was born and raised there. It was the only place he felt safe and secure. In just about every "Halloween" film he always returned to his home. It belonged to him. I personally believe Karen went there to get a feel for the place, trying to make sense of everything. Why does a normal kid turn into a ruthless killing machine, was it just him or was it the house itself.

Question: How could Shredder survive that fall long enough to touch some of the ooze to heal himself?

Rob245

Answer: This is where comic book logic meets real-life physics. He was wearing a giant metallic, robotically augmented suit of armor. The idea is that this protected him enough to survive long enough. They do similar fuzzy physics with Iron Man from time to time. In real life, the reason fighter jets can't fly faster than they do is that they're carrying a living blood-filled water-balloon inside that they can't risk bursting. The fact is that sudden acceleration/deceleration could easily liquify a human's brain and dislodge internal organs. But comic book logic determines that if we can avoid the obvious immediate damage of impact, the human will survive. We see it with Superman catching someone mere feet from the ground, and they survive rather than showing them as being impaled by two arms jutting straight up, or sliced in three if the arms are held horizontally. All they have to do is suggest that he remained alive, though possibly hanging from a thread, until he's able to touch the ooze.

Charlie's Angels (1976)

Okay my mistake but did they decline returning or what?

Rob245

Answer: To add to the previous answer, Elisabeth Shue went back to Harvard to continue her studies which is why she doesn't appear in the sequel.

Answer: Ali was originally only supposed to have a very small role in Part 2. Elizabeth Shue declined to reprise the role because she was studying at Harvard at the time. I can't find any explanation online as to why Randee Heller was not in Part 2 and was barely in Part 3.

Answer: Like all studio executives they think mixing things up by bringing in new characters into different settings would keep the franchise fresh. Most of the sequels from the 1980's were given minor or major cast changes.

Divergent (2014)

Question: Why does Natalie look upset at the end of the Choosing Ceremony? The book says she smiled at Tris. That and why is Jeanine presiding over it? Marcus did this in the book.

Rob245

Answer: For one, Natalie is upset that both Tris and Caleb have chosen different factions from her and Andrew's, which means they will have little future contact with their children. Also, Tris chose Dauntless, the faction that Natalie was born into and chose to leave. The movie audience has to be able to see how Natalie truly feels about this and a smile would give the wrong impression. Also, Jeanine presiding over the Choosing Ceremony instead of Marcus is a common book/movie type of change that often occurs in films. Here it introduces and places emphasis on Jeanine and foreshadows the importance her character will play.

Cruella (2021)

Question: Why did the Baroness kill Estella's adoptive mother? Why not just give her money and whatever help she needed?

Rob245

Answer: The Baroness probably thought that if she gave Estella's adoptive mother money and help that time, she would keep asking for more and more money under threat of revealing the secret that the Baroness was the girl's real mother. Killing her meant one less person who knew her secret and could hold it over her.

Batman: Arkham Origins

Question: How does Copperhead know Joker took over Black Mask's mob?

Rob245

Answer: It's called a Bantu knot and it is similar to other historical Afro-texture - also known as kinky - hairstyles. Within the context of the show, the reason for the hairstyle is she probably just likes the look. Within the context of producing the show, they might have felt the hairstyle helped accentuate her deranged facial expressions.

Answer: After which episode are you talking about a wig change? According to Katy Sagal, she didn't start wearing a wig until season 3. The first 3 seasons she would just do her own hair. Once the show became successful is when the show bought her a wig. Any changes to her hair style during the first 3 seasons would be natural. They may have used a couple different wigs later just to keep her hair style changing.

Rob245

Halloween II (1981)

Question: Why would Laurie ever go and visit Michael in the asylum?

Rob245

Answer: Maybe she wanted to see her brother and was too young to "understand" the severity of what he did? Maybe her adoptive family thought it would be good for her to try and have some sort of relationship with her brother so they took her to visit him? Etc. Pick your poison. There's any number of valid reasons why the relative of a criminal might go to visit their family member in prison or an asylum.

TedStixon

Answer: She didn't, the movie picks up were the first one left off, on the same night. She went directly to the hospital and stayed there all night.

No I mean when she's in the hospital. She dreams that she's visiting him at Smith's Grove.

Power Rangers (2017)

Question: How does Rita get that green outfit and how is she bullet proof?

Rob245

Answer: Rita was originally a part of Zordon's power rangers, and she was the green ranger of the team, so she would still have it. Rita may have magical abilities that would explain how she was unable to be harmed from bullets. Either that or her suit is bullet proof.

Answer: He took her into space because of bad writing and special effects.

Answer: There is no logical reason for him to take her there.

The Wrong Missy (2020)

Question: Given Tim had "The Right Missy"s phone number how could he have mistakenly texted the other one?

Rob245

Answer: Because he had both girls in his phone as "Missy" and he didn't check which Missy he was texting or forgot he had the "wrong" Missy in his phone.
