Question: When Logan said "oh so this is what it feels like" was he referring to dying or what Charles was talking about at the house?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: I believe he was referring to two things here. The obvious one is dying, however I'm thinking that's less likely. As even though Logan always would heal before and come back, he has "died" many many times in previous events and would have felt that until his body regenerated enough for him to come back. Other than on maybe a religious level and if feeling the soul disconnecting from his body differently on a permanent death, it would be the same. What I really think he is referring to... is love. He is a father now, and accepting of it. His daughter is right there with him and crying over him, something that probably nobody has ever done for him in his life or a very long time. He is feeling that genuine unconditional love for the first time. He gets to experience what it feels like to be loved as a father moments before he dies, and I believe that is what he is referring to.

Question: What became of the little girl after Riot left her body?

Answer: Like all other temporary hosts, she died. This was first seen when Riot took over the EMT and when he left her after finding a new temp host, the EMT died.

It depends on how long they are inside the host though, as Venom took over Annie as well but she survived. It depends on how much they feed on their host. In the case of the girl he was inside her for several hours or more so she most likely died.

Question: When Caleb is in the house rescuing a young girl, would it really have made sense for Caleb to take off his mask, and put it on the child he is rescuing? I mean the child was unconscious, and he would still need oxygen. It's really hard to breathe in buildings. I would like an actual firefighter to answer this question.

New this week Answer: As a Firefighter, in a fire your own life and safety are your top priority. You can't save anybody if you become a casualty. And you never take your mask off. We are trained to work in all our gear, it all stays on until we come out.

Answer: I'm not a Firefighter but I believe that the masks are uncomfortable and he took it off so he can work faster. It only makes since to give the mask to the unconscious girl because it might help her breathe better or start to breathe again. He is trained to do these types of things.

Caleb would have a pretty hard time breathing by taking his the oxygen mask off.

Question: Was there any indication or hints that Will was actually Ben Willis' son before the reveal at the end?

Joey221995

Answer: I believe it was supposed to be a surprise plot twist, I don't remember there being any indication that Will was setting them up.

Question: Why did Estes attack Will with the paddle oar when he said "we're not going anywhere", and what did he mean by that?

Joey221995

Answer: I think that Estes already knew that Will was Ben's son. He had made a comment about a man (Ben) killing his wife (Sarah) in the same room Julie and Will was staying in. He also makes a comment about Will having his mother's eyes. So he probably recognized him. He also knew that the answer they gave to the radio host was wrong, and that proved it was a set up from the beginning.

Question: For no obvious reason - except for the fun of it - the downsizing procedure included a complete shave-down. In the Norwegian colony they have horses, sheep and dogs. Were the animals also shaved before being downsized?

Answer: They apparently shave them because the process only works on living tissue. So yes, they would have had to shave the animals.

Question: When Beaupre thought there was a woman in the Alcott's house, why go back in and kill her? He thought she was in the shower so she couldn't see him, so there was no evidence to give the police about what he looked like.

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: It was Jernigan who thought there was a woman in the shower and he couldn't take the risk that if it was a woman, that she would eventually get out and see intruders in the house and call for the police. The only option open to Jernigan would be to kill her so there'd be no witnesses.

Question: What does Rizzo mean at the Frosty Palace when she asks Danny if someone is snaking him?

Answer: "Snaking" means someone stealing away a sale from you after you labored over it. Rizzo is referring to Tom stealing away Sandy from Danny.

lionhead

Answer: Actually, according to Cassell's Dictionary of Slang, snake means "to whip or punish, " originating from a teamsters whip which was commonly called a "snake" in the 1930's. I rewatched the scene with this definition in mind and it fits perfectly. Rizzo walks in and immediately notices Sandy sitting at a table with Tom. She walks straight over to where Danny is sitting with the rest of the gang and says, while glancing back over her shoulder at Sandy, "somebody snakin' ya Danny?" It seems clear Rizzo is referencing Sandy's behavior, which is designed to punish Danny for treating her poorly in front of his friends.

Answer: There's a number of definitions for the urban slang term, "snaking," but in this case, I think she is asking if someone is attempting to fool, deceive, or otherwise take advantage of him.

Question: Why did the trio watch Buckbeak being executed?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: Because they had some small hope that something would happen that prevented it, they stayed to see if a miracle would happen basically. They didn't want to see it of course, but they felt it too terrible to just not know if there was any hope it wouldn't happen and then miss it.

lionhead

But how could they tell from the top of that hill? They were so far away they couldn't hear a thing.

They could see the executioner from where they were standing, just not very well or entirely. They saw him swinging the ax, but not what he was hitting. They just assumed it was Buckbeak.

raywest Premium member

Answer: They didn't actually see Buckbeak being executed because he never was. They were far enough away that they only partially saw the executioner wield the axe, but he was actually chopping a pumpkin out of frustration because Buckbeak had disappeared. If they had been closer, they most likely would not have looked at all, not wanting to witness such a gruesome scene.

raywest Premium member

Thank you but I was meaning to ask why they stayed on that hill to watch instead of returning to the common room?

It's pointless to speculate what their reasoning for watching was because it really comes down to it being a plot device. The audience has to think that Buckbeak has been killed in order to propel the story forward. That is achieved by having HR&H stop atop the hill and watch what they think is the execution. It also is to convey their sense of grief and hopelessness.

Question: What's the point of the braces?

New this week Answer: If you recall, Mort was kicked in the mouth after he had stabbed his wife in the leg.I'm thinking braces were the result.

The point of braces is to straighten your teeth out. Getting kicked in the mouth isn't going to render your teeth crooked. Your teeth would be completely knocked out first.

Phaneron Premium member

Answer: I believe Mort had some problem with his jaw and needed braces to help correct it. I also read that it was Johnny Depp's idea for Mort to wear braces, believing it added an interesting facet to his character.

raywest Premium member

Answer: He's just getting his teeth straightened.

Question: What is up with the auction scene? Knowing that dinosaurs are unpredictable, why would they want to sell them off anyway? What were people planning on doing with them; keep them as pets? Build their own park? Use them against their enemies? This scene makes no sense and plus, even with them able to make more and more dinosaurs, why keep selling them at all? I'm sorry for all the questions but this scene is just weird for me.

Answer: They were sold for the sole purpose of making hundreds of millions of dollars from the auction and future sales. The buyers had different reasons for wanting them: weaponizing them, for trophy hunting, private zoos, etc. The buyers' zeal in wanting such exotic animals overruled their sensibilities regarding how dangerous the dinosaurs were and the extreme conditions needed to manage them.

Question: Is it true that the story Nick was telling Cap about his grandfather is based on Samuel L Jackson's grandfather?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: Here's what he said in an interview: The thing with him is, you don't know if he's making up a story to get you to do a certain thing or if he's actually giving you a piece of himself. The great thing for me about that particular story is that is what my grandfather did when I was a kid. He actually ran an elevator in a hotel in Chattanooga, Tenn. That was his job. I used to go down there and sit in the elevator with him while he took people up and down. He got tipped that way and had money in his pocket or in a bag - and a little gun. He always had a pistol with him, some brass knuckles. I did not write that, it was just in there. It totally just happened that way. I chuckled about it. I was trying to figure out if I had talked about my grandfather in some interview somewhere years ago or something and somebody read it and put that in there. I never found out if that was the case. I think it's a true story for him.

Question: Why does this movie have so much product placement? And why did Jon put "Pepsi" and "Wendy" stickers on his train set?

Answer: Movies are incredibly expensive. Product placement helps pay for them - companies will give the studio money if the movies feature their products, which lessens the studio's financial burden. The stickers are likely just more product placement, but in the "reality" of the movie... Jon just probably thought they'd look cool or make the train look more realistic or something.

Question: How are Captain America, Black Widow, and Black Panther talking to Proxima Midnight through the Wakandan cloaked shield? What's she looking at? Trees?

DetectiveGadget85

Answer: It's not a cloaking shield. It's a defensive barrier. There would be no need to have a cloaking shield within the city because anybody that's inside the city would seemingly already know that Wakanda is hidden.

Question: At one point in the movie the fed introduces herself saying she is with ATF. Does ATF handle Treasury? I thought Treasury was handled by the Secret Service. Is this a mistake or am I misinformed?

scaryterri Premium member

Chosen answer: You are correct, the ATF does not handle currency. This is a mistake, either in the script or made by the actress. She correctly identifies herself as a Treasury agent throughout the film but does say in one scene she is an ATF agent.

Question: Why does Alex's House have an elevator/dumb waiter? I've never heard of a house having any type of elevator or dumb waiter.

Answer: Many older, larger homes were originally built by wealthy owners and it is not uncommon for these homes to have an elevator or dumbwaiter for the help's use. Even though it is rare for a homeowner to have a butler today, many of these older homes still find use for the dumbwaiter/elevator the butler would have used.
