Question: Is there a reason why Halsey wasn't given any lines in the movie?

Question: In the scenes where Angel drinks blood out of a cup or glass, what were the props actually filled with?

Cubs Fan

Chosen answer: I once used raspberry syrup as blood in a film shoot. I'm sure there are other, more "professional" liquids available as well.

Question: At the beginning of the film we're told that four people came back from the rescue mission, three wrote books and two had their books published. Later on we find out Four Leafs made the whole thing up. So how do the other three survivors fit into the whole thing, did they just make it up too? Or was the opening statement just meant as a joke all-together?

Chosen answer: There were 3 other survivors. Only they presumably told the truth. Since Four Leafs made up his version, his more than likely seemed more entertaining. So his book was chosen to be made into a movie.

Question: This confused me a little. At Stu's house, Randy answers the phone and hears about the principal's body being found hanging from a goal post on the football field. However, either Billy or Stu murdered the principal earlier in the day, so it seems that the other staff at school would have noticed that he was missing several hours ago. Billy and Stu are both at the party, so neither of them could have recently hung the body without someone finding it hours ago. Did one of the killers call and make up the story so that most of the kids would leave the house?

Chosen answer: Billy came to the party late, presumably because he was hanging the body. The school seems pretty deserted when the principal gets killed (he goes into the corridor and only the cleaner is there, presumably cleaning after school is out) so it's reasonable to assume no one would have missed him yet.

Question: On the round trip going from Milan to London and back, which spice girl keeps saying "Are we there yet?" in the plane?

Chosen answer: It is Mel B, aka Scary Spice. You can tell by her distinctive northern accent.

Question: What exactly happened to the original crew of the Event Horizon? Where did they go after they tortured each other?

Socks1000

Chosen answer: At least one crewmember is seen as a floating, frozen corpse on the bridge of the ship when the rescue crew are exploring, there is also evidence seen that a significant amount of tissue and blood have been spread around the walls in some parts of the ship, however it is implied that the original crew are in the alternate Hell dimention, if not physically then spiritually.

Question: What became of Martin and Beth after the the gene-swapping sequence? also, were Bartoks' employees aware of Bartoks' transformation?

Socks1000

Chosen answer: Presumably they go on to live relatively normal lives. The scene at the end of Bartok is meant to show that his employees have no sympathy for any creature, including him, who is suffering. At least some of them are aware it's Bartok, yet they allow him to be imprisoned and gawked at, just as they did the dog.

The Dalek Invasion of Earth - S2-E2

Question: Why did The Daleks want Earth? What was it that made them specifically choose Earth to invade? Also, why did they intend on turning the Earth into a massive spacecraft when they already have their own fleet?

Socks1000

Chosen answer: In the mockumentary "Whatever happened to Susan Foreman?" it is sugested that some Daleks may have survived the events of "The Daleks," rebuilt the race and gone back in time to take revenge on Ian and Barbra by invading 20th century Earth, but suffered a fuel shortage which left them stranded in the 22nd century. Presumably that would also leave them incapable of interstellar travel.

Question: What is the film called that B-Rabbit's mum is watching on the telly when her son comes in?

danni181085

Chosen answer: Imitation of Life.

The Sound of Drums (2) - S3-E12

Question: How does staring into time vortex cause the constant drumming in The Master's head? Also, why does it cause it?

Socks1000

Chosen answer: As revealed in "The End of Time" it was the President of the Time Lords who put the drumming back in time into the Master's head.

Question: Who hurt Danny after his visit to room 237?

Socks1000

Chosen answer: In the book, after Danny visits room 217 (237 for the movie) the ghost of the woman who killed herself in the bath chokes him.

Answer: In the 80s it was the old lady's ghost who hurt Danny. This was a repeat of the 20s when the actual old lady lured Danny in her room and tried to bite him and satisfy her hunger. (Given the lack of food due to snow storm).

Out of Time - S2-E7

Question: Whatever happened to Caitlin?

Socks1000

Chosen answer: Caitlin was left in the possible future (where the virus had been released) when Peter teleported out. Then, when Hiro zapped the virus out of existance, that future became impossible, so that timeline became void.Basically, when that future ceased to exist, so did Caitlin, and since her parents seem to be dead (please correct me if I'm wrong, it's been a while seen I saw S2) and Elle killed her brother, there are no next of kin to raise awkward questions.

Question: It's not unusual for Pixar to put characters from their next movie in their movies (like the Nemo doll in "Monsters Inc."). Are there any characters from "Up" in this movie?

mechanical sponge

Chosen answer: There aren't any characters from Up in Wall-E, however during the first scene in Wall-E's trailer you can see Carl's walker briefly.

Question: Throughout season 8, Christy and Billie have been described as the "Ultimate Power" by various sources. Why are they, these two relatively young and inexperienced witches, described as the ultimate power when the battle ready and experienced Charmed Ones have come up against centuries old demons and beings with far more powers, such as The Source of All Evil, Barbas, Zankou, Cole etcetera?

SockWearer

Chosen answer: Because they are unique from the previous demons (like the Source, Zankou, et al) because they are witches and human (and the sisters have not vanquished mortals before), and because Billie is a friend of the Halliwell sisters, and they trained her personally (making her the last person the sisters would think of as a threat). This makes it a difficult moral quandry for the Charmed Ones, since they care about Billie and aren't enthusiastic about killing humans (unlike demons, whom they will hunt and kill without the moral problem). Also, Billie's thought projection power (a rare and formidable power) combined with Christy's telepathy and fire-starting ability make their combined powers incredibly strong, enough to challenge the Charmed Ones.

Question: Why does Milky smile before Combo beats him up?

LazyBoy09

Chosen answer: I believe he may think that Combo is just joking with him in a way that he was earlier in the film when he talks about him being black.

Awesomo

Show generally

Question: Why did the writers of this show use so many fictitious product names like "ViewIt Earth" instead of Google Earth, "Earth Geographic" instead of National Geographic, and "Playpen" instead of Playboy? Were they not allowed to use the real names for some reason?

Chosen answer: Hollywood does this to avoid things like paying royalties, continuity errors with real life, and lawsuits from companies who don't want their products associated with a show.

Question: Where exactly is Chandler from? I know Joey is from Queens, Phoebe is from Upstate and Ross, Monica and Rachel are all from Long Island - but what about Chandler? Where did he grow up?

Eclipse

Chosen answer: I think the only clue they give is that he is half Scottish!

Anastasios Anastasatos

Question: I was just wondering if in America (or any other countries) the film is called 'twenty-twelve' or 'two thousand and twelve'? Here in England it's 'twenty twelve', it had never occurred to me it might be different elsewhere but in the commentary the director calls it 'two thousand and twelve'.

Chosen answer: I live in America (Florida) and we said twenty-twelve. All the media I heard said twenty-twelve. There is actually some debate going on in America (or at least Florida) about whether or not we should say twenty-ten or two thousand ten.

Question: If Alice can see the future, why did she not protect Bella from Jasper's attack before it happened at Bella's birthday party?

sunfox35

Chosen answer: The way I understand it, Alice's power only works once someone makes a conscious decision to act. Since Bella's paper cut was unanticipated, Jasper's attack was impulsive, not premeditated.

Cubs Fan

Question: Why did Lydia want to kill herself?

Chosen answer: She wanted to be with the couple, she did not think of the repercussions.

Phixius

She was incredibly depressed. She wasn't happy anywhere and she didn't fit in with her own family or anything they were trying to do. She was a goth girl. The realm of the dead and the macabre seemed more a place for her. When one sees the "Netherworld," it kind of seems like a more interesting place. But... upon closer inspection, it's not really all that different from our world.
