Question: Why is everybody mean to Clopin?

Rodney DuBois

Chosen answer: No one is mean to Clopin in the movie. But he is a gypsy and the people in Paris don't like the gypsies.

Question: At the end of supremacy, Landy tells Bourne his name is David Webb and birthday is 4/15/71. In the Ultimatum, that same date is used as a code. Was this a mistake or am I missing something?

Chosen answer: They don't have that conversation twice; it's intended to be the same scene both times. For the purpose of giving Supremacy a better ending, the sequence was used there despite actually taking place during Ultimatum. This is also why Ultimatum starts with him escaping the police in Moscow: it's a continuation of the chase just preceding the scene with Landy.

Question: Is there any reference to other witches, besides the sisters, that have vanquished a source? Or are they the only witches ever to be powerful enough? The source does have the ability to be reconstituted with a spell in the grimoire.

Chosen answer: The sisters are the only witches that have been powerful enough to vanquish the source, gaining their strength from the power of 3.

Question: Did Smith really kill Exley's father?

raph

Chosen answer: Possibly. Smith mentions that Exley's father was a straight cop, much to Exley's wish. Smith, being as corrupt as he is, may have killed Exley's father.

Question: When the game is loading, sometimes there is a picture of a Pontiac Firebird but it is not a most wanted event, or a car you can use to beat races. Can you get the Firebird? And if so, how do you get it?

AdrianMC2002

Chosen answer: It's available only as downloadable content by buying the "Movie Legends Pack". It's the 1977 Firebird from Smokey and the Bandit film.

Question: Mark Hoffman, and his sister Angelina Acomb. Why don't they have the same last name?

Bunch

Chosen answer: Several possibilities: she could have been married, or divorced and had not changed back her last name; they could have been half-siblings with each of them having different fathers; they could have been step-siblings or one of them may have been adopted.

Question: As Brad drives off with Julia and George at the end and the twins start following them, what is the name of the music playing?

Question: In the courtroom scene Tommy Lee Jones' character says "That's a pretty suit, Sharon." She says, "Drop dead, Roy!" Susan Sarandon's name is Reggie. Am I mistaken about hearing the name Susan?

b_d_henderson

Chosen answer: He says "That's a pretty suit, chérie", chérie being French for dear. The film is set in Louisiana where French and Creole are spoken.

Question: Outside of the castle, when you walk around the castle, to the waterfall there is an underwater hole. Can someone tell me where this hole leads to?

ryderpoints

Chosen answer: It doesn't lead anywhere - it is an exit from a bonus star level if you end up dying.

Question: SPOILER: When Scott invades the helicopter to stop Cross, Cross appears in the Yellowjacket armour. The Yellowjacket armour before this was placed inside glass casing and was miniaturised. My question here is, how exactly did Cross get the Yellowjacket armour to human size before putting it on?

Casual Person

Chosen answer: The suit was built human-size and then shrunk using Pym particles. The same technology can also be used to grow objects. Cross was shown to have a hand-held device earlier in the film capable of shrinking, so he either used this device, or activated the suit's built-in growing/shrinking technology.

Question: A glass casket with a key inside it is shown in John's warehouse. What does that mean?

Chosen answer: It plays an important role in the next few movies.

Question: In the last scene with the park ranger he is siting in his SUV completely motionless as if he is dead. The ranger does not even blink. The door is open, door alarm sounding and a ladder is leaning against the SUV instead of leaning against the fence or being on top of the SUV. What is wrong with the ranger?

Chosen answer: He is completely stunned to have learned that there are many people, particularly ones like Ivy Walker who are ignorant of the 21st century, living inside the wildlife reserve. The reserve is completely fenced off and his job as a ranger is only to guard the perimeter of the area.

Question: When Joy and Bing-Bong fall into the pit of forgotten memories, why doesn't Joy start to fade like Bing-Bong does?

Chosen answer: Because Joy is an emotion, not a memory.

Question: *SPOILER* This question has been confusing me for ages and goes to the Saw series in general. First of all, If Jigsaw doesn't kill people himself, why does he slash Tapp's throat, and why does he also have an innocent victim in a drill chair? Second of all, he claims he despises murderers in Saw III, yet in Saw IV, he gives a man no chance of survival in the spike trap (could be explained that this was Hoffman's creation), and has his victims killing each other throughout the series, especially in Saw 6 where Jigsaw himself is personally present in a video to the main character, meaning that these traps were his idea, especially where the main character has to kill 4 out of 6 people to continue on with the game. Is this because Jigsaw is caught in some false belief that he is a something like a god or similar? After all, he believes the traps will change people, which has been done with varying results.

Chosen answer: In the third movie he states that he hates murderers. The traps which had no chance of the victim surviving were created by his apprentice Amanda, not Jigsaw himself, which leads him to test Amanda to see if she's worthy of carrying on his work in HIS WAY (giving the victim the chance of salvation) which she wasn't, which resulted in her being killed by the doctor's husband.

Question: What is Jenna's ring tone that can be heard at the beginning?

Chosen answer: It is La Cumparsita.

Question: I am trying to discover what Henry's boat actually is. Obviously a yacht, but the stern is unusual and I have yet to identify it.

Chosen answer: It's a Formosa 51 ketch.

Question: When the swimmers are running out of the water, why does Brody shout: "No whistles?"

Chosen answer: When the shark attacks fist began, Brody began reading up on shark behavior. It is believed that loud vibrating sounds (like whistles) can attract sharks. Brody knows that multiple people blowing loud whistles could bring the shark closer into shore.

Question: After passing the Bouncer, when Constantine first enters Papa's Lounge, what type of entity is inside the "sack", apparently being picked apart and eaten alive?

Chosen answer: A pig, you can hear it squealing better in the deleted scenes without the background music of the club.

Question: After reading what really happened, I am still not understanding why they killed her husband. Did he know something that he should not have known? I do understand the need for his coffin to hide the bombs...now why did they need to take her daughter as a 'hostage' for the sake of the $50 million dollars?

Chosen answer: If there's no dead husband, there's no coffin to hide a bomb in. Without the daughter's disappearance, Kyle won't have reason to unlock the coffin (only she knew the code; the terrorists didn't). When the captain initially refuses to have the hold searched, the marshal suggests it would be a good idea for him to take Kyle down there and look. This would be for the purpose of having her open the coffin, and allowing him to access the bomb.

Question: What is the picture on Pink's wall (about 33 minutes in) that some people claim is an Obama Hope poster?

Chosen answer: It's a portrait of Bob Dylan by Andy Warhol.
