Question: If the children's souls were transferred into the servants and saw they were about to be hanged, why didn't one of them simply say something 'ike "Mom, Dad its me. Please don't do this!"

sunfox35

Chosen answer: They most assuredly did, but the adults were in a drunken frenzy were not inclined to take the time to listen to the unbelievable tale these two objects of extreme racism were trying to tell.

Question: Why does Dr. Gordan cut his leg while he didn't know that door was unlocked or not? This question is also for Eric in Saw -2.

Chosen answer: Well, there's only one way to find out whether or not it's locked...

Question: If I've seen it correctly, you are supposed to save if you made a copy of the tape. But what would happen if you watch the tape again, do you have to make another copy then to prevent her coming out of the television?

Chosen answer: No. The main character watches the tape several times looking for clues to solve the mystery, but only makes one copy and is still spared.

Question: How can Nicholas Cage seeing a guy shooting two people in the casino if it's not going to happen? I know that he stopped the guy because he would shoot two people, but wouldn't he see some different future then?

Loesjuh1985

Chosen answer: He doesn't just see THE future, he sees all possible futures.

Question: Is there any significance to why Ethan keeps using the word 'toast' on his sound equipment at the CIA HQ?

Chosen answer: He's testing the microphone sensitivity. "Toast", like the more common word "test", has both percussive (the hard consonant "T") and sibilant (the hissing "S") sounds.

Question: My question involves the scene where Batman is standing on top of the rubble from the explosion mourning the loss of Rachel while the firefighters are seen behind him putting out the residual flames. Is Batman standing inside the building or outside? This may seem obvious, but I recently had a serious debate on this matter. I personally believe he is standing inside the building but would like clarification if possible. Thanks.

Chosen answer: He's on the rubble, so he must be where the building's inside used to be.

Question: Is it revealed, in the Cube trilogy, the destiny to which Kazan is reserved when he walks into the bright light?

Chosen answer: No, but given the nature of the organization behind the Cubes, it can be assumed he was either tracked down and executed or detained in order to place him back into that Cube or into another version.

Phixius Premium member

Answer: If you watched Cube Zero, we see the same blinding white light when Owen makes it to the exit, but when he walks through it turns dark and he is chained up. He is then asked whether or not he believes in God. When he says "No," he is incinerated. Apparently, no one has ever said "Yes," so we don't know what happens if someone were to say "Yes." It is very likely that Kazan ended up in the same situation.

Question: In the scene where Evan visits an institutionalized Lenny locked in restraints, Lenny accuses him of having known on the day of the junkyard (where Lenny stabbed Tommy with a shard) that "something big was going to happen" and that Evan "should be where I am". How did Lenny know that Evan foresaw the "future" as it were, and that he changed the course of events which lead to his imprisonment?

Chosen answer: Because of Evan's strange behavior that day. Lenny has had too much time to dwell and think about it, so he's created excuses in his mind and convinced himself of their truth. He just happens to be right.

Question: When Addie sets Brooke up on a date with her husband Andrew's friend, Brooke is uninterested during the date. At one point Addie calls her to help her get out of the date and the first thing she says ism "Is this when I'm supposed to call?" How did Brooke and Addie plan this? Brooke was pretending to be intrigued by the guy's story about his job and listening intently therefore she couldn't have been communicating with Addie by texting during the date and they couldn't have planned it ahead of time.

Chosen answer: It's a common ploy to help a friend out of a bad blind date. They didn't need to plan it.

Question: In the beginning only Lydia can see Adam and Barbra, but everyone can see Betelgeuse. How come the Deetze's can see Betelgeuse but not Adam and Barbra?

Lueroi

Chosen answer: He's got more experience interacting with the living. Adam and Barbara are capable of making themselves seen by the others, they just don't know how yet.

Phixius Premium member

Answer: They could see him because Adam and Barbara's parlor display game them reason to believe in super natural entities.

Question: When Bruce Wayne steps out of his sports car to enter the fundraiser, a lot of paparazzi start photographing Bruce Wayne then you hear a strange noise and all the photographers cameras shut off/down. Did Bruce Wayne have a gadget to cause this or was it someone else.

Russel

Chosen answer: Yes. Bruce is seen to have pressed a device similar to car alarm. It was most likely a small scale electric magnetic pulse. One designed to switch off certain devices (such as cameras). The same technology is used later during the movie when Batman re-appearances during the chase scene (the lights turn off temporarily).

XIII

Question: Why, when Thunderbird 5 got hit, did they send the rest of the Tracy family (excluding Alan of course)? They didn't know about The Hood wanting to infiltrate their home base, but at least one of them should have stayed behind if only to have gone to fix any problem the typhoon would have given.

xx:xx:xx

Chosen answer: Jeff's entire reason for forming International Rescue was to save as many lives as he can following the death of his wife. When T5 is hit, someone's life is in danger, so Jeff drops everything to save a life. It was an ill conceived move, yes, but it was for noble reasons.

Question: If Edward can read minds why he didn't tell Bella that Rosalie only cares about getting the baby for herself and is not really helping Bella live through the pregnancy?

sunfox35

Chosen answer: Because that would not be at all true. Rosalie never wanted Bella's baby for herself. Her biggest regret is not being able to have had a child, and she loves Edward and Bella's child, but never would have done anything to try and take the baby from them.

Question: I heard that only one of all the prophecies is the correct one am I right? How is it they find it so fast?

Loesjuh1985

Chosen answer: Yes, only one is the correct one, but they're all organized and marked (by subject, I believe) so it was relatively simple to track the proper one down.

Phixius Premium member

Question: Does Bruce Wayne or Batcycle use EMP Burst or something similar to turn off all reporters cameras at the Charity Ball or Subway lights during the stock market chase and the aftermath?

Chosen answer: Yes, it would seem that he carries some sort of device that produces that effect in a small area around him, plus the gun with the lights at the end of the "barrel" appears to have the same effect over a longer range, as he uses it to take out a motorcycle some distance ahead of him.

Question: For Doc to be so worried about corrupting the timeline in this movie (especially when it comes to falling in love with Clara) he surely doesn't seem to think twice about destroying the locomotive that will no doubt have a huge effect on the timeline. I doubt there were many trains on that railroad, with that mode of transportation now gone, Hill Valley itself could be wiped out.

Carl Missouri

Chosen answer: In the timeline that the original Marty and Doc came from, Hill Valley exists so that town obviously survived that incident. An accident already occurred on that day in their history. They just didn't know it was them that caused it.

XIII

Question: How come the surviving members of the Watchmen (with the exception of Rorshach) agreed to let Dr. Manhattan take the blame for the murders of so many people? Wouldn't it have been easier to just arrest Veidt and let everyone know who was truly responsible for everything?

Chosen answer: The entire reason they don't arrest Veidt is because his actions, while evil and genocidal, did in fact cause the two warring nations to unite. Exposing Veidt would revert the world back to its chaotic state and the peace would end. The millions Veidt killed would've died in vain and the Watchmen can't have that. All of this is discussed in great detail.

Season 9 generally

Question: I'm just dying to know why they refer to issues from a non existent "season 9" during the 3 part episode. If Red Dwarf ended at season 8, continued with season 9 with "back to earth", how is it they keep referencing a season that never happened?

darthmonkey2004

Chosen answer: In the fictional version of the real world that the crew visit in "Back To Earth", apparently a season nine did happen.

Question: In the scene near the end of the movie at the boat, there is a shot of a box and there is some 'Hitler' sign burning into it (this scene has some 'knocking' music). Does anyone knows what's the meaning of this scene?

Chosen answer: Actually, the Hitler sign isn't being burned into the box, it's being burned off. The Ark of the Covenant would not allow Hitler's symbol to be placed on it, and as such burned it off.
