Question: This goes along with the previous question about that song that starts at :33 on the first trailer. Does anyone know what kind of music genre it would be under so I might find an album that sounds like it?

HulkObsessedChick

Chosen answer: I can do better than that. The track is called "The World Waits" by Edmund Choi, from the soundtrack to the movie "The Dish". If you're in the UK, the track can be downloaded here for 70p: http://is.gd/5KgJb.

Coraline (2009)

Chosen answer: It's all nonsense words. It's Bruno Colais (the musical director)'s signature style. It's got some inspiration from French and Hungarian accents.

Answer: It's not all nonsense, if you listen to the song with lyrics you'll see that she's speaking in English but like twisting the words a lot, for example for "we live somewhere" she says "we love somwye".

I don't know which song you're speaking about, but "Exploration" and "End Credits" are gibberish all the other songs I heard on the soundtrack are also gibberish, even if she occasional says a real Hungarian or French word.

Exploration and end credits aren't gibberish, there's actual lyrics for each, it's just in French I believe.

Here is the first verse for "End Credit" and you translate it from French into English for us if this isn't gibberish with an occasional real word. "Creaking van iddli fla lu va. Pretty sah lu feh iddli twu ki padi. Trelly goilly doilly seli pretty chedi. Emi swalin gwoh."

Question: What was the reason for adding the attack scene at the Burrow during Christmas? My friend and I can't find a way to fit this scene in with the rest of the movie, as it does not happen in the book. It's obvious directors love to add scenes that aren't in the book, but something of this impact, it's just flying right over my head.

HulkObsessedChick

Chosen answer: In the book we are told of attacks by Death Eaters within the Wizarding community. In the film, when Arthur and Harry enter the shed, Arthur explains that they're all being followed and most days Molly doesn't leave the house. The filmmakers chose to expound on this by means of an attack by Bellatrix and Greyback, and the attempt to terrorize the family the viewers hold dear, the Weasleys.

Coraline (2009)

Coraline mistake picture

Continuity mistake: During Coraline's first meal with her Other Mother and Father, just before Coraline says "I'm real thirsty." there are two drinking glasses to her right, the one she uses a couple seconds later and a smaller one. After the cut to the chandelier lowering, it goes back to Coraline and the smaller glass has completely vanished.

Question: After Dumbledore is killed, Snape, Draco and the other Death Eaters are leaving the castle from the Astronomy Tower, why/how is it that they end up exiting the Great Hall (then blasting the Auror and then exiting the castle)?

HulkObsessedChick

Chosen answer: There is a bit of a time lapse from when they leave the Astronomy Tower, but the Death Eaters are creating as much mayhem as possible within the castle. The movie tones this down, but in the book, there is an all-out battle between the Death Eaters and the Aurors, Hogwarts staff, and "Dumbledore's Army."

Coraline (2009)

Question: After Other Wybie frees Coraline from the mirror and is helping her escape, he takes off his glove and blows away his hand. Is something happening to him?

HulkObsessedChick

Chosen answer: Coraline urges Other Wybie to escape with her. He shows her that he can't - he is not a person, just another puppet of the Other Mother. What is blowing away is the sawdust Other Mother fills her puppets with.

Ioreth

He's just a temporary distraction.

Answer: It's because the other Wybie isn't real, he is just one of the other mother's creations. The other world is full of magic, so if he tries to go to the normal world he will turn into sawdust or sand because the normal world has no magic.

Castle in the Sky (1986)

Other mistake: How does Dola know that Sheeta's pigtails were shot off? They had been outside in their aircraft the whole time and once Dola got Sheeta in a tight hug, the situation doesn't call for any time for her to explain what happened.

Continuity mistake: When Tifa first shows up to the scene at the ShinRa Monument, she looks over to see Denzel standing and her hair has fallen over her shoulder. When it cuts to a closer shot of Denzel (still over Tifa's shoulder), her hair instantly moved back.

Question: According to scale, Cloud's buster sword blade ends at about his shoulder. If he puts it in his holster on his back, how is he able to pull it out with one arm, if one arm is half the length of one's body?

HulkObsessedChick

Chosen answer: Look at long swords and scabbards today. Often, the scabbards have cuts out of the sides so they can be removed easier.

Audio problem: In the scene in the church where Tifa and Marlene are confronted by Loz, Loz approaches the two as he's talking and his boots are easily heard on the wood. When he notices the flowers, the scene shows, as he's looking down and the flowers are surrounding him, that the wooden floor is gone. When he asks, "Where's mother?" he takes a step forward and his boot is heard on wood. A few seconds later he takes another step, followed by the same boot on wood sound, when there shouldn't be any wood below him.

Tarzan (1999)

Continuity mistake: After the elephant stampede, Tarzan apologizes to Kerchak, whose left hand is visibly about a foot and a half from him. But in the next shot, when Tarzan attempts to touch his hand, it's only a couple inches away.

Tarzan (1999)

Continuity mistake: When Tarzan is climbing the tree as "Son of Man" starts, the continuity of the bark, vines and moss on the tree doesn't match between shots. Example: Just before he begins to climb, there's no bark on the tree. When he reaches up, there's bark. After he slips, he stops in a barkless area, but it's the same area where there should have been vines and moss as there was previously. After Kerchak passes him, there's more bark on the tree than there was in the previous shot, and so on.

Treasure Planet (2002)

Continuity mistake: In the lens of the spyglass, Jim climbs out of the barrel, and two things happen after this: One, the spyglass moves from being close to the corner of the table (about 1 1/2 inches) to several inches away before Jim hits it with his hand. And two: As Silver confronts Jim in the galley, Jim backs away, and there's a shot of the table where the spyglass has completely disappeared, and a plate, cup and some type of pliers appear.

Tarzan (1999)

Continuity mistake: As young Tarzan fixes his spear, he's sitting on a moss covered branch, and just behind him on his left is another branch growing from the one he's sitting on. After the shot of the yellow fruit, it returns to Tarzan. Assuming he hasn't moved from his spot, the branch that was behind him should still be there, but isn't.

HulkObsessedChick

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Betty drives up behind Bruce in her car as he begins to cross the bridge, Bruce's left hand is visibly clutching his jacket shut. In the next shot from inside Betty's car, his hand is immediately at his side. (00:42:20)
