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
Question: With all of the Federation's extraordinarily advanced knowledge, science, medicine and technology, why is it that they can't seem to repair Captain Pike's physical injuries? In the original series, Pike was crippled and hideously disfigured by Delta Rays; but the best they could offer him was a motorized wheelchair with a couple of "yes" or "no" flashing communication lights. In the rebooted franchise, Pike suffered much less severe injuries; yet, once more, all they could offer him was a simple wheelchair in the first movie, and then a walking cane in the second. In Star Trek canon, we know that they have performed brain and spinal transplants, regenerated damaged organs, healed mortal wounds (in a matter of seconds), cured horrible diseases with a single hypo-injection, and even resuscitated the dead on more than one occasion. In Star Trek novels, there is mentioned even the possibility of cycling an injured individual through a previously-stored Transporter Pattern and completely removing injuries altogether. Yet the best they ever did for Captain Christopher Pike onscreen was a wheelchair and a cane?Charles Austin Miller
Question: When Kylo Ren tries to use the Force on Rey, he mentions that they need the last piece of the map, and that they have the rest. However, when R2-D2 wakes up, we find out that he had the map the entire time. Was Kylo bluffing or did he know where the rest of it was? Was there a copy or did I miss something?
Question: How could Daniel get jail time over this whole "Doubtfire" act? He told his kids if their mom found out he could only see them through plate glass (jail/prison). Is it really a crime to do what he did? (although it is creepy and awkward to do) He didn't physically harm anyone and didn't impersonate a real person. So why would he assume this?
Question: When Adam first steps out of the house and ends up on Saturn, he's only there for a few seconds in real time, but Barbara tells him he was gone for two hours. Yet towards the end of the movie when Beetlejuice banishes Barbara to Saturn, she's there for a considerably longer time (at least long enough to wrangle a sandworm and co-opt it) but ends up only being gone for a few minutes and manages to return to the house in time to stop Beetlejuice from marrying. Why is this? Since she was on Saturn longer than Adam's first time there, shouldn't she have been gone for longer than two Earth hours?Phaneron
Question: When everyone exited the tour cars, they went downhill to see the Triceratops, but how could they get inside the paddock? Is there no fence surrounding the animals? And is the Trike we see the only Trike in JP? My main question is: Why is the Trike free to roam everywhere it wants, I mean they didn't have to get through a fence to get there because we see the tour cars behind them, and they are not behind a fence.
Question: Barry returns to his fixed timeline, meets Batman and gave him the letter Thomas Wayne's Batman wrote. Then, the post credit scene shows the portals appears that will lead to Darkseid's invasion. The question is in the following Justice League War movie, the heroes seems like they never know each other. Did Barry return before the Justice League ever assembled? If so, why does Barry in the Justice League War movie seem to be so amused when he knows Batman is real? He even greeted Batman for the first time and addressed him as "Sir Batman." I cannot find any good articles on net to explain this contradiction.Kirishima Homura
Question: Behind the desk of Teasle is a distinguished service cross, a silver star and a purple heart. So he is himself a very brave fighter. Why would such a "war hero" be so mad about another war hero, a recipient of the medal of honor, delivered only by the President of the United States? Jealousy? Rage about the death of his friend?
Question: I saw an episode on FOX the other night where Peter flew around the world delivering packages and getting smarter the more he travelled. When I pressed the (i) button on my TV remote for info on the episode it said it was from series 13, however I own series 13 on DVD and that episode is not on there. I had never seen the episode before. So my question is this: are the seasons labelled differently on TV as opposed to the DVDs or is it a difference in the way countries label seasons, as I live in the UK not the US?strikeand
