Question: This film tells a little about different clans and how some Predators hunt others (smaller ones, how they ever came to be and are not extinct I'd beyond me). But is it every mentioned anywhere just how Predators are created/born? The films never give an indication towards there being any female Predators. We know Aliens have the Face-Huggers and they spawn Aliens from Humans. What about Predators? Is it ever noted if they do something similar, mate like Humans do or are created using some kind of technology? Always been curious about this, thanks for any answer.


Chosen answer: Female predators (or Yautja) do not hunt, and are therefore rarely seen off their home world. Predators do have a mating season and females choose their mates based on how accomplished a hunter they are.

Question: I may have missed something. If JK Simmons was fired, how could he conduct the band at the end?


Chosen answer: He was fired from the university, but the band at the end was a hobby group he had started conducting for.

Question: What are the three curses Mad-Eye Moody taught (or you can say Barty Crouch Junior)? Cruciatus and avada kedavara - what's the third?

Chosen answer: The three curses are the Unforgivable Curses. The Cruciatus Curse (crucio) causes intense pain. The Imperius Curse (imperio) puts someone under mental control. The Killing Curse (avada kedavra) kills instantly.

Question: Why does the Station Inspector chase children who are on their own and threaten to send them to an Orphanage? Is that what it was like in the 1930s?

Luka Keats

Chosen answer: It is more than likely an early form of our modern day child protection. Just as today if children are found to be at risk, they can be and are taken away by social services and put into foster care. In the film, orphans may have been seen as a plague in an area that attracts posh looking people in stark contrast to urchins in rags eating out of bins. Most European orphanages/care homes/hospices/whatever you want to call them at that time were no better than anything depicted in Charles Dickens 50 years previously.

Question: If agents are programs that are actually embedded into the Matrix coding themselves, then in theory, shouldn't they never miss the targets they are shooting at? We have aimbots and other programs today that can be used in video games, I've never used one but my understanding is they don't miss. Why would this not be the case in the Matrix?


Chosen answer: It is theoretically possible for agents to get something similar to an aim-bot since the matrix is a simulation and agents probably do have access to the data needed to calculate how they should move and how they should fire their gun, calculate trajectories etc. in order to hit their target. The fact that they don't have an aim-bot mechanism only points to one thing. They don't have access to the computing power to calculate all that. It may take very little computer power in our games but if you want to make a prediction in the matrix you will need to simulate part of the matrix (not to say all of it if you wanna be 100% accurate) and have enough processing power to fast forward it and check if the outcome is you hitting the target in the coming seconds. But that's not all, you have to run that for every possible move you can think of until the outcome of this calculation is yes. Oh and every agent in the matrix should have that processing power available and with no delays, all this has to be real time or it's gonna be useless. So just like in our world when you don't have the computer power to calculate something you estimate it, you make an algorithm that is kinda good at it but far from perfect. Vis-a-vis agents AI algorithm.

Question: What happened to Peggy's brother (Luanne's father)? Why isn't he around?

Chosen answer: Luanne's father does show up in an entire episode: the 12th season finale 'Life: A Loser's Manual.' He stays with the Hills after getting out of jail. However, Peggy has not told anyone that he has been in prison, not even Hank. They believe that he works on an oil rig. But it all comes to light when he causes trouble and lands Lucky and then himself in jail. By the end of the episode he is headed back to prison. The Hills and Lucky keep up the oil rig charade for Luanne's sake.

Question: Two Questions about the Cave of Wonders: 1) The Cave states that only Aladdin can enter, but Abu enters the cave as well. That suggests that Aladdin is just the only human welcomed into the cave while the rule does not apply to animals. Why doesn't Jafar send Iago into the cave to retrieve the lamp for him? 2) The Cave also warns Aladdin not to touch any treasure besides the lamp, because if he does the cave will erupt and collapse on him. The cave is also where Aladdin and Abu meet the Magic Carpet. Clearly, they touch the carpet. Why doesn't the cave erupt and collapse when Aladdin and Abu touch the carpet?

John Ohman

Chosen answer: The cave has some level of sentience. It is aware of who is entering the cave, and decides whether to allow them to enter. It is able to tell that Abu is with Aladdin. It seems to keep a watchful eye on the person in the cave, and when it says "touch nothing" what it means is "don't try to take anything. It seems it was fine with them interacting with the carpet, and only had an issue when Abu was attempting to actually take something.

Jason Hoffman

Question: During the scene when the blue alien is singing at the opera, Leeloo begins her fight scene with the big aliens. She fights them one by one. Why don't the aliens simply shoot Leeloo? They all simply stand around as if they don't know what to do. One finally takes a couple shots at her and he quickly runs out of ammo. Three or more turn up and they too simply stand there as Leeloo winds up a punch for like five seconds while one big alien is standing right behind her watching the whole thing. This enitre scene never made any sense to me.

Carl Missouri

Chosen answer: As demonstrated several times throughout the movie, that particular species isn't particularly intelligent, that they didn't do the obvious thing that you mentioned further enhances their status as being quite stupid. They are also planting a bomb and need to remain quiet or risk alerting security.

Question: How much money and work was required to build the cube? I know that only one actual cube was built. I'm asking this about the actual cube built in real life; not the in-universe cube.


Chosen answer: The cube cost approximately $20,000 (Canadian) to build.


Question: At the end, Maura Tierney is lying on Al Pacino's bed, having a nap/sleep. Are we then to presume they had sex before Pacino went to the airport to catch his plane back to LA?


Chosen answer: Since no answer is given in the film, the audience must make their own assumptions.


Question: When Cruella reverts back to her former personality why is everything spotty?

Luka Keats

Chosen answer: This is due to her obsession of wanting a spotted dalmatian puppy coat.

Question: When the Count rides in, what does he leave sitting on the seat in the carriage?

Chosen answer: It is the family crest.

Question: It seems whenever this movie is played on TV, the start of the scene where Sharon is yelling at Derek in the house edits out the part at the start where Sharon yells "What? WHAT!?" and throws and breaks a dish. Why is this edited out? It always starts at the line she says right after that.

Chosen answer: There is no set format for a feature-length film's running time in theaters (some bodies state a minimum of 40 minutes, some 80). They are edited to fit TV scheduling. Scenes are often cut short or deleted entirely to eliminate objectionable content, but also so the film can begin and end on the hour or half hour (i.e. It starts precisely at 8:00 p.m. And ends at 10:00 pm) so that the next program can run. It also has to allow time for commercials and station breaks during the airing. This often leaves the original movie rather chopped-up. That is probably what happened with this particular film.

Question: Who is the actor playing the very tall cooler guard? Has he appeared in any other films?

Chosen answer: His name is Trevor Wood, apparently rather than acting again, he went on to become a solicitor and partner in several London law firms.

Question: What is the meaning of the flashing lights at the end of the movie (after the camera pans from Alex reading the book at the park)?


Chosen answer: The flashing lights are to create a sense of uneasiness again. Gaspar Noe uses low frequency sound to create nausea, headaches, and disorientation in the beginning and uses it again here to make the viewer feel sick after the mood changes dramatically. Also it symbolizes the chaos that occurs in the universe & how life can easily spiral out of control as it does in the movie.


She of Little Faith - S13-E6

Question: What does Mr. Burns mean when he tells everyone not to be fooled by Lindsay Naegle's skirt?

Chosen answer: Mr. Burns, being over 100 years old, holds very old fashioned views. One such view is that business is a man's world. So, he's basically saying that, despite the fact she is a woman (wears a skirt), Lindsey Naegle is still capable of rebuilding the church.

Michael Albert

Question: What is the situation with Mary Jane's mother? In the previous movie, Mary Jane's father refers to her as "trash", and in this movie, Mary Jane mentions that she is ill.

Chosen answer: She is a victim of domestic abuse - saying that she is ill is probably covering up for her so she does not have to show her bruises.

Question: If it really is so important for Scott to find a wife, then why didn't Curtis and Bernard tell him about it earlier? Why put that pressure on him, when they could've just told him after his first year or two? They seriously waited that long just to tell him "you need to get married"?

Chosen answer: There could be any number of possible reasons that could be speculated on. However, the most likely answer is that after the first movie became a big hit and sequel was to be made, this was the plot line that was developed "after the fact."

He says in the movie that it was his "first mistake in 900 years" meaning he didn't realise about Mrs. Claus.

Question: When Adam asks Beetlejuice if he can be scary, Beetlejuice shows him and Barbara a face that scares them. Has it ever been known what the face was?

Chosen answer: No; it was left strictly to the imagination of the audience.


Question: If the lightsaber that Rey touches was Luke's and his father's before him, how did it get there? Luke's saber, given to him by Obi Wan, was lost in the fight between Luke and Vader on Cloud City when Vader cut Luke's sword hand off. It fell down with Luke's hand into the disposal tube, then out and down to Bespin's swampy surface.

Movie Nut

Chosen answer: When she is asked about the light saber being in her possession, Maz Kanata explains that it is a question to be answered at another time. Presumably this will be explained in a future episode.
