These are questions relating to specific titles. General questions for movies and TV shows are here. Members get e-mailed when any of their questions are answered.
Question: The twins are apparently born at the same time as Vader receiving his armor/suit - right after Vader's fight with Obi-wan. How is it that fitting armor happens to be in a medical center already?
Question: What kind of clothing is that being worn by the character Lock-Nah, the "enforcer" of Imhotep's cult and (apparently) Ardeth Bay's nemesis? He's obviously supposed to be African, but is that a specific type of garb or did they just make up an African-themed wardrobe for the movie? And does anybody know:A) What kind of sword it is that he always carries and fights with?B) What is that big dagger(?) he throws at Ardeth in the O'Conells' mansion? C) At the Oasis of Ahm Shere, what language is Lock-Nah speaking when he shouts for the soldiers to "Fan out! Eyes open! Guns up!" when thunder starts rumbling?
Question: Several questions. 1. What was Carson's relationship to Stephanie? They obviously knew each other. 2. Why didn't Carson ask the morgue director for the code? It would have been much easier. 3. The plane is to escape, but would they really allow an air marshall to just stroll on the plane even if his plan was successful? And how would he get Stephanie on? 4. Was Carson enjoying himself with his convoluted plan? He wants $50 million, but there are so many easier ways to get that such as robbing a bank.
Question: Does Maui need to eat and drink to survive? If so, how did he survive for so long on a desert island; especially when there's no signs he had any tools for fishing or a way of creating fresh water? If not, why did he seek out food when Moana showed up? Also, it's heavily implied that Maui urinates, which probably means that he drank something, but why would he if he doesn't need food or water?Plausible_Reptile
Question: Is there ANY reason the smaller "lifeboat" ship (think they call it the Narcissus) Ripley evacuates into at the end, couldn't have been used as a lander to travel down to the planet in the beginning too (simply leave the Nostromo in orbit, with or without skeleton crew)? It seems, actually is, much less likely to be damaged in the initial landing, and, for that matter, much easier to take off afterwards (being much less massive). It also would have provided one more layer of quarantine containment for the people who stayed in the lander (who may or not be all the other four, in fact one would probably be just fine (Ripley manages the Narcissus just fine at the end), and it would have been a lot faster for the singleton to simply put on their own spacesuit if/when trouble is encountered, and in so doing, preserve their own personal uncontaminated space). The three explorers and the lander guard could simply see to trouble in Narcissus' sickbay-laboratory, without tainting the three back in the mothership, give Kane first response while taking him up to the main lab on the ship, while giving the orbit people warning to put on their suits/have some form of mobile quarantine ready for him.dizzyd
