Question: Whatever happened to the little girl that Cal pretends is his daughter (I think) so he can get into the lifeboat? I didn't see her in the lifeboat with Cal in later scenes.

Chosen answer: In one of the deleted scenes it shows an extended version of the Titanic survivors getting on the Carpathia. As you watch it you see the little girl being carried aboard. You can check it on youtube. I think its something like Titanic deleted scene extended Carpathia sequence.

New this month Answer: In the montage scene after Rose is rescued (when she looks up at Lowe waving the green light there's a shot of Cal accepting a flask). The woman he handed the girl to when getting on the life boat is still holding the girl as she sleeps. Presumably she stays with that woman.

Question: Why did V even need Evy to help him kill the priest? If it was just a regular girl instead of Evy in the bedroom, V was gonna barge in through the window anyway. Was he just trying to show her how he does things or something?

Chosen answer: She tells the priest that she opened a window while she was waiting to be seen, to let V get in.

Question: At the end when Dr. Gordon cuts his foot off, he tells Adam he'll go and get help when he escapes. So wouldn't Adam be able to escape as well once Dr. Gordon gets help? Or would Jigsaw catch up with Dr. Gordon and kill him?

Chosen answer: Dr. Gordon is in Saw 7. Adam is killed by Amanda Young.

I also want to know why Dr Gordon never sent help back for Adam. They were fellow sufferers and even though Dr Gordon joined with jigsaw, he could have called 911 and sent help back for Adam.

I assume that Amanda came along and killed Adam before Dr. Gordon could do anything.

Answer: I assume that Amanda came along and killed Adam before Dr. Gordon could do anything.

Answer: It's not until Saw 3D that Jigsaw tells Dr Gordon the location of the bathroom (assuming Lawrence passed out after cauterizing his leg after leaving the bathroom and never truly knew where it was)... (from SAW 3D) Hello Dr. Gordon. You are perhaps my greatest asset. Without you, my work over the last few years would not have been possible. That having been said I have a request. Watch over Jill, and should anything happen to her, I want you to act immediately on my behalf. In return for that, I will keep no more secrets from you. I've shown you a lot of places, but there is one that will be perhaps the most meaningful to you.

Question: What does Hirsch mean when he tells Vosen, "Just remember why we put Landy there." They talk about framing Landy for BlackBriar, but that never goes anywhere. What was their plan?

Brad Premium member

Chosen answer: In the next film, "The Bourne Legacy", we see Vosen testifying against Landy before a congressional committee. He implies that Blackbriar was solely an operation to capture a rogue Treadstone operative (Bourne), and that Landy was responsible for the program as she had aided Bourne.

Question: I'm partly deaf, so I am dependent upon reading closed captioning on TV or movies. My wife and I rented a DVD of this movie. I saw on this DVD where Benedict Cumberbatch was said to be the Necromancer; my wife claims not to have heard the name "Necromancer" said out loud. This was when the Necromancer made a very brief appearance. Was this a mistake in captioning?

Chosen answer: The name Necromancer is said specifically at that point in the movie, by Radagast as he narrates what happened to Gandalf. Your information is correct in that the character is indeed being played by Benedict Cumberbatch, in addition to his role as Smaug.

Question: Why did everybody in the courtroom go silent when Tom said that he did chores for Mayella because he felt sorry for her?

Chosen answer: At that time in history, Tom, a black man, was considered inferior to Mayella, a white woman. When he says he "felt sorry" for her, it is interpreted as him thinking he is above her or better off in some way. Regardless of his good intentions, for him to think of himself as being in a superior position to help her was considered unacceptable because it was seen as a black person rising above their lower place in society.

Question: Towards the beginning of the film, it is stated that Duke is the new leader of G.I. Joe. What happened to General Hawk between films?

Quantom X Premium member

Chosen answer: Most likely Hawk was killed in action, or he just retired. Eventually Duke advanced to leader.

Casual Person

Question: When the revelation is made about how Storm Shadow was framed for the murder of Hard Master, did the leader then already know it was Zartan and made the accusations to coax a statement from Storm, or did they really not know yet? Then entire scene felt rushed, and like they figured out what happened and who did it too quickly.

Quantom X Premium member

Chosen answer: The Blind Master says to Storm, "You will tell us Cobra's endgame or die by the same sword you once used to kill our master" near the start of this scene, meaning they really did not know that Zartan killed the Hard Master.

Casual Person

Question: Did Roy break Deckard's fingers or just dislocate them?

Quantom X Premium member

Chosen answer: He dislocated them. You see Rick try to relocate the fingers later on.

Casual Person

Question: When Bryant and Deckard are watching the tape of Leon's VK test, the screen displays the letters V.K. But below that it shows 96/W/9-3H. What does that mean?

Quantom X Premium member

Chosen answer: The tape was possibly numbered so the police know which tape is which. 96/W/9-3H is probably the number of Leon's VK test.

Casual Person

Question: On the VK test, there is a bar light above the screen that shows the subject's eye. The bar lights up across from green to red. What does this bar indicate?

Quantom X Premium member

Chosen answer: The bar is meant to represent how far the eye monitor had zoomed in. One way this can be noticed is when Rick starts to question Rachael, the monitor zooms in and the bar goes down. The lights on the VK test load, then each light turns off one by one depending on how much the monitor had zoomed out.

Casual Person

Question: In the scene in which Morpheus offers Neo the blue or red pill, what is the music that starts playing as Morpheus takes the pills out of his metal container and continues after they get up?

Chosen answer: There was a bootleg version of the complete Don Davis score for the film going around - chronologically I would say this piece of music was part of the track titled "Down the Rabbit Hole."

Question: What exactly caused the volcano to explode at the end? It didn't seem active at all and it just decided to blow after Phantom and Diana escaped the pirates.

Quantom X Premium member

Chosen answer: The explosions from the skulls and the weapons on the island caused the volcano to erupt.

LorgSkyegon

Question: Does this have anything to do with the 1975 TV show of the same title?

Quantom X Premium member

Chosen answer: Yes, it does. The movie is based on the British TV series.

Question: Why does Maya keep putting on a wig when dealing with prisoners?

Quantom X Premium member

Chosen answer: Most likely to conceal her naturally bright red hair. If that fact is known, it would make it easier for the enemy to identify and target her, either for surveillance, to be kidnapped, killed, etc.

Question: Nicolas Cage was originally cast in the role of the film's villain, Chudnofsky. But he left the film just days before shooting. I have searched around on the net trying to find why, but I keep finding unclear and conflicting reports. So why did Cage leave the film?

Quantom X Premium member

Chosen answer: There were creative differences between Cage and the film's director, Michael Goundry. For one, Cage, who wanted an unconventional character, suggested the villain have a Jamaican accent. The director rejected that idea and there were others conflicts between the two about how the character should be played. Cage decided to turn down the role.

Question: Is it ever explained why Seinfeld and Newman dislike each other?

Chosen answer: No, it is not. Most Seinfeldians believe Newman is simply jealous of Jerry's success, and doesn't feel Jerry is worthy of it.
