Question: Does Christabella still recognizes the disfigured Alessa in the church scene? If so, why does Christabella looked so shocked and scared?

Movie Lover

Chosen answer: Judging by the burned state of Alessa's risen body, it is possible that Christabella realised who it was. It would then make sense that she would be afraid, because it was she who ordered that Alessa be tortured in that awful way. Even if she did not recognise her, the appearance of Alessa's body rising from the floor surrounded by barbed wire is a pretty gruesome image, fear is an understandable reaction.

Question: Does anyone know who really sketched the picture of Allison's bridge? I doubt that it was Ally Sheedy, but I could be wrong.

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: It was said in the movie commentary that the drawing was the work of digital editing.

Question: This is probably a tedious task, but at what scenes were the songs "Rose," "A Life So Changed," "Unable to Stay, Unwilling to Leave," and "The Portrait" (the former three from the Titanic OST and the latter from Back to Titanic OST) played within the film? Most of the music in the film is so similar, it's hard for me to determine which song is which.

Chosen answer: "Rose" was used in the flying seen at the bow of Titanic when Jack and Rose are flying."A life so changed" was used when Rose is in a life boat after Jack dies at the end.Unable to Stay, Unwilling to Leave," was used when Jack gets Rose into a life boat and she looks up at him in slow mode and she jumps back on Titanic. "The Portrait" was used when Jack is drawing Rose.

Question: There are 2 scenes in the movie that I am confused about. Both of them take place BEFORE we find out that Cliff and Cydney are the real killers. The first takes place towards the begining when Cliff and Cydney are pretending to be going to the bathroom behind a tree watching the killers (themselves) on the security camera. The second is when they are in their tent (with Gina in the background gutting the goat). In both scenes, Cliff and Cydney appear to be afraid and very concerned about Gina and Nick being the real killers. In the tent scene, they talk about leaving Nick and Gina behind because they think they're the killers. Why are Cliff and Cydney even talking about this if THEY are the real killers?

Chosen answer: They're not afraid the other couple are the killers, they're afraid they may be recognized on the video and that the other couple might figure out who they really are.

Question: When Jill and Kirby were watching "Shaun of the Dead", and Ghostface calls them, how did he know they were watching that?

Chosen answer: Remember that Jill and Charlie were the killers and were working together. Therefore, Jill probably told Charlie the film they were planning on watching. Meaning when he called Kirby he knew what she and Jill were watching, which makes the killer more sinister and omnipresent.

Question: Bludworth states that he's, "Seen this before" referring to Death's Design. If the bridge incident takes place before Flight 180, and is the first, then how would he have seen it before? And why is the bridge incident not mentioned in the first film if it took place only two weeks earlier?

Chosen answer: To answer your first question, Bludworth does in fact mention he has "seen this before", but this means he could have seen these events before the film series ever took place. It is possible that this is where he had learned a lot about death's design. This could even hint at another sequel/prequel. To answer your second question, none of the survivors had been alive to tell the tale of what happened to the survivors of the bridge collapse. In the first few movies, it is noted that the protagonist freaks out, thus, startling MANY people. In the 5th film, Sam is only seen freaking out inside the bus. Even if the FBI have the information, they could have finished the investigation completely, due to Sam, Molly, and Nathan surviving (Until the end of the movie, that is).

Question: I've got a question about "The Point of no Return" scene. Is Christine just cleverly acting her role or does she mean what she is singing - "these shameless words"? Raoul is suspecting the second and the Phantom is, to some extent deceived, but what about Christine? The question is presumably open to interpretations, but it would be nice to know your opinion.

auxano

Chosen answer: I believe that to some extent, Christine truly believes what she is saying to the Phantom. After all, in the sequel "Love Never Dies," it is revealed that she did have an affair and a child with the Phantom. However, I think she also realizes what her life would be like with the Phantom, and that isn't necessarily what she wants, so she chooses to be with Raoul.

Question: How does Eddie get away with the apparent murder of the blonde woman in the apartment? I gather that even he doesn't know whether it was him or not but surely the Police would want to at least call him in for questioning at some point? And if it was him, surely, in that situation, it would be difficult to get away without leaving any evidence?

Chosen answer: There was no mention of physical evidence like hairs or fibres, the only evidence the police had was an eye-witness placing Eddie at the scene at the time the murder occurred; the eye-witness failed to I.D. Eddie in the line-up he was called to at the police station so Eddie was released, as the police had no case.

Question: After Sweeney knocks out Signor Pirelli and Toby comes up, how does he have water in his kettle after it has all spilt on the floor?

jamie5d

Chosen answer: Even though water started coming out of the kettle when it was on the floor it is possible there was enough left inside.

Question: What is the song that the Howling Commandos are singing in the pub scene?

Chosen answer: It's a drinking song from 1883 called "There's a Tavern in the Town."

Question: After finding Pamela at her hotel Jason follows her in a taxi. Is the music played here listed anywhere as I could not find it on the soundtrack CD. Thank you.

Jellinator

Chosen answer: John Powell - To The Roof.

Question: What is the name of the bearded dragon kind of character in Rango who says, "What do you think, Sheriff?"

MazyFerret5

Chosen answer: Do you mean Waffles? He is a horned toad.

Question: In the scenes in the home of Annie's Mom (Jill Clayburgh), she has sketches of singers. When they are sitting on the couch, is that a sketch of John Lodge of the Moody Blues behind the couch? Thanks.

Chosen answer: Rick Springfield and Willie Nelson.

Question: When the 2 brothers leave the elevator with the cart with Yen in it, the camera zooms in on the waiter's uniform on the floor. Why? Someone asked before 'wouldn't Benedict have seen them change in the elevator'. What I want to know, is why would they leave evidence in the elevator and it never be revisited for the rest of the movie? Seems very strange. Could a part of the movie be missing?

parabri

Chosen answer: They leave the stuff there because there is no other place to put it - they can't be seen with it and Yen is in the cart. And Livingston already had control over the security cameras. He would just have to turn them to video while they were in the elevator.

Question: What is the mortician carving into the skin of the stolen dead bodies?

barbarakinsey1

Chosen answer: Nothing specific, the carving of mystical symbols is just meant to be a means of furthering his power.

Purple_Girl

Question: When Charlie stabbed Kirby, just as he walks away, did she say, "f*ck", or am i hearing things?

Answer: Well. She must have whispered it ultra quiet, because I heard squat. It's not on the subtitles, either.

Alan Keddie

Chosen answer: Yes, she does say it.

Question: When Rose is snooping around after having put on the white coat, she passes a few fire extinguishers in a hall. In the room with the Void Sphere, there's another one. But they're all silver. I may just not be worldly enough, but I've only ever seen red fire extinguishers. Are they like that in the UK, or is it a Doctor Who thing?

Knever

Chosen answer: It's a Doctor Who thing, fire extinguishers in the UK have been red since 1997. Before then different colours represented different contents (water, foam, etc.), but it's unlikely the extinguishers seen would be that old.

pinkwafer

Question: Are Carly's deceased brother (briefly glimpsed on a picture on Carly's dresser) and the British NEST soldier from Transformers 2 the same person?

Brad Premium member

Chosen answer: Yes, you can very briefly see him when Lennox is briefing everyone in the chopper, in the opening of Revenge of the Fallen.

Friso94

Question: Spoiler: How did Bruce survive the explosion?

Casual Person

Chosen answer: It is revealed afterward that he had fixed the autopilot on his aircraft. At some point prior to the explosion he bailed out and the craft continued on without him, taking the bomb far enough away for him to survive the blast.

Phixius Premium member

It's not clear that he actually survived We did see him in the end but Alfred could have been imagining that Bruce was there It's up to us to decide if that is the case or not But it's not confirmed that he survived.

Question: Has the car Bond uses to drive M to the Skyfall home to hide her from Silva ever been used in any other Bond films?

Casual Person

Chosen answer: Yes, it originally appeared in Goldfinger. Aston Martin DB5s have also appeared in a number of subsequent Bond movies, but have not always been intended to be the same car.

Tailkinker Premium member

Answer: The DB5 also appears briefly in The World is Not Enough as a thermal image at the end and in a deleted scene. It also appears at the end of Spectre when Bond drives off.

Answer: The Aston Martin DB5 originally starred in Goldfinger then Thunderball in the pre-credit scene, then it appeared again in Goldeneye, Tomorrow Never Dies, Casino Royale (but this time it was owned by another character) and then Skyfall in which it gets blown up.
