New this month Question: In the scene in Florence with the two fighting Italians, does one of them die? In one shot he is still moving his jaw, in another shot he seems rather motionless.

New this month Answer: It's unknown if he survived or not, nor is it important to the film's plot. The scene is about how witnessing a violent act affects Lucy. The entire trip to Italy has a powerful effect on her personality, opening her to new emotions and sensations that she's never experienced before, having lived a rather pleasant though constricted and conventional life in England.

New this month Question: I'm still a bit confused on the tripods' actual height. I can't find it anywhere and I just wanted to make sure how tall the tripods are. Preferably in meters but any measurement is fine.

New this month Answer: They're reported to be about 100 feet tall.

Which is about 30.5 meters.

Question: Why didn't the FBI ask Ben's father what type of car he owns like they would do in real life? They type of car Ben, Riley, and Abigail stole from Ben's father has an on star system that would allow the authorities to track them through satellite, and intercept them ruining any chance of escape for the them. So why didn't the FBI use the on star system to track them?

New this month Answer: One of the agents, when they are interrogating Patrick at his house, mentions that the car that Patrick owns (although I don't know the brand) is missing, so they have asked. There is also a correction at some point about the on-star system (similar to your question) that shows that the on-star system could have been removed for any number of reasons.

It's a Cadillac Deville.

New this month Question: What happened to all the dogs the Newtons rescued from the end of the first film? None of them appear in this sequel except for one dog, Sparky, in one scene, but it looks like he doesn't live with them anymore.

adamtrainman@aol.com

New this month Answer: This takes place some time after the first movie so the dogs from the first movie were most likely adopted or reunited with their proper owners.

Trust No 1 - S9-E6

New this month Question: After blowing up the car, when the NSA guy answers Scully's question, "How the hell do you know my size?" he says, "I know the name of your college boyfriend, your true hair colour, your ATM PIN number." This strongly suggests that red is not her true colour. Therefore, my question is: What is the true colour of Scully's hair?

Chop Luftmysza

New this month Answer: Actress Gillian Anderson's natural hair color is strawberry blonde, which she dyed fiery red. (Although in the revival of the show she wears a wig).

The question does not concern Gillian Anderson's true hair colour-it concerns Agent Dana Scully's true hair colour.

Chop Luftmysza

New this month Answer: He was being facetious. He doesn't specifically know that information, he was merely giving examples of the types of information he has access to.

I think so too.

New this month Question: When Smith kills Jack he says, "Have you got a validation, boy-o?", to which of course, Jack says, "Rollo Tomasi." But why would Smith think Jack would expose his source, especially if he is about to die?

New this month Answer: Smith actually says, "Have you a valediction," i.e., any last words. He's not asking Jack to name his source, he's just asking, in a slightly mocking way, if Jack wants to say anything else before he dies.

New this month Question: Why did falling from a cliff result in the player losing a life, but falling 1,000 feet to the ground upon respawning did not?

Question: Was it ever confirmed that Ford died on the wraith hive ship?

Dan23

New this month Answer: No. In "The Third Path" (book from Legacy series), he even appeared on travelers ship.

New this month Question: What happened to Janice's leg?

New this month Answer: She has Polio. Taken from Wikipedia: Poliomyelitis, often called polio or infantile paralysis, is an infectious disease caused by the poliovirus. In about 0.5 percent of cases there is muscle weakness resulting in an inability to move. This can occur over a few hours to a few days. The weakness most often involves the legs but may less commonly involve the muscles of the head, neck and diaphragm. Many but not all people fully recover.

Question: Why did Jimmy tell Henry he wasn't going to kill Morrie, only to then have him killed?

raph

New this month Answer: Well, for starters, I think Jimmy, despite being a complete sociopath cared a bit about Henry's mental state and well-being and just wanted him to calm down, enjoy his night and we can see it worked. Second, Jimmy might, just might at that moment feel like it wasn't the right night to kill Maurie since he was more of an annoying nuisance than a real threat, he was without being asked given the Chance to just forget the money and let it go, symbolizing Jimmy's murderous greed. Third...WHY should he tell Henry Hill that he will kill him? He benefits nothing, it puts him in a vulnerable position and Jimmy, more than likely has noticed Henry's tics, excessive sweat and bug eyes, pretty sure the guy is hooked on coke, meaning as Tommy jokingly but in nice foreshadow says "You may fold under questioning." Telling Henry he will spare Morrie becomes his Teflon armor at this point cause Henry at this point would never even suspect a good fella like Jimmy to lie to him "of all people" about something like that...That is my take on it anyway.

New this month Question: Why didn't the prison guards come to help after Cadbury hollered for them when being attacked by an Assassin?

adamtrainman@aol.com

New this month Answer: Since the person had obviously been let in just to kill Cadbury, the guards would have been paid off to look the other way.

Greg Dwyer

New this month Question: Was Pennywise the one who bombed the Ironworks in 1908, the one who killed the five Bradley folks in '35 and the one in the black spot in '62, or did he curse the people and the town to make them go crazy throughout the 27 years?

New this month Answer: IT's malign influence makes the inhabitants of Derry particularly violent and vicious, culminating in an explosion of violence every 27 years. It's implied in the novel that IT sabotaged the machinery of the Kitchener Ironworks, though.

New this month Question: Where does Hector get the photo of himself?

New this month Answer: It is never really explained in the movie, but we could assume that whenever someone dies they keep whatever items they had on them. Hector may have had the photo on his person when he died.

Question: At the beginning in the training scene, Shifu was disappointed, pointing out the problems in each of the Five's attack strategy. He said to Crane "height." What did he mean?

Bunch Son

New this month Answer: He meant that Crane had to be higher in the sky so that Shifu wouldn't notice him when coming in for an attack.

New this month Question: Genie tells Aladdin he cannot kill, or make anyone fall in love, or bring people back from the dead. He also tells Aladdin he cannot wish for more wishes. Shouldn't that make four rules not three?

New this month Answer: The three rules refer to what he could wish for, not how many. It's like a coupon that tells you both what it's good for and limit one per customer. The rules about distinct things that don't affect each other.

Brian Katcher

New this month Answer: The Genie never actually says that he has "3 rules", he just numbers the three you mentioned as he is explaining them. He told Aladdin about the "no more wishes" rule before he sang "Never Had a Friend Like Me." He doesn't include "no more wishes" in his list of rules because Aladdin already knew about it.

BaconIsMyBFF

Yes of course it's a rule. What difference does it make?

lionhead

I meant yes it would make four rules.

He says there are a few "provisors", a few "quid pro quo's" (which doesn't make any sense) to the 3 wishes he can do. That's what he can't do because he is limited into doing them. However, the not getting more than 3 wishes is something the Genie himself won't do for him. The 3 limitations he sums up are about the wishes itself, the fact he can do only 3 is a separate rule the Genie himself won't do. So the wishes have only 3 official rules because the Genie can't do anything about them, and 1 particular wish the Genie simply won't grant.

lionhead

New this month Answer: There is a difference between what he cannot do and won't do.

lionhead

You're going to going to need to be more specific.

Question: At the opening of the movie, when it shows the wagon in the river, what is the white thing in the water toward the right of the screen near the bank? At first it looks like rapids, but looking closer it looks more like something rolling in the water.

New this month Answer: A barrel.

New this month Question: Puss reads on the bottle that potion is not intended for those with nervous disorders. What kind of nervous disorders is the warning part referring to?

New this month Answer: This is a cartoon for children, and it's deliberately being general. It is referring to anything that can make someone nervous.

New this month Question: What caused Fiona to turn back into a human?

New this month Answer: It wasn't a side effect of the "Happily Ever After" potion, it was the main purpose of it. The potion turned the drinker of the potion and his or her true love into a more beautiful form. However, in order for them to stay in that form, they must kiss before midnight. Since Shrek and Fiona waited till after midnight, they reverted back. Donkey also reverts back. There was a script idea to show Dragon also change, but it was scrapped. However, we only see Dragon after the potion wore off, so she too would be in her normal form, since they didn't kiss before midnight.

Bishop73

New this month Answer: Yes. Since the Happily Ever After Potion causes Shrek to become a handsome man and, according to the instructions, causes the persons one true love to also change into a different form, after Shrek became human, Fiona turned back into a human.

New this month Answer: That was an unintended side effect of the "Happily Ever After" potion that caused Shrek to turn human and Donkey to turn into a white stallion; the reason it caused Fiona to revert to her human form is never really explained within the film.

zendaddy621

I meant was it Shrek drinking the potion that caused Fiona to turn back into a human.
