Question: When Carter goes to pick up Lee at the airport he is parked next to the terminal. I know this movie is pre-9/11 but is it actually possible or a non-airport employee to drive so close to the runway? Even allowing for the fact Carter is a cop, it still seems strange. But I'm no expert in airport protocol so I'm not listing as a mistake as it may well be possible.
Question: When NASA turns on the personnel locators during the fire on the Russian Space Station, how is it they have one for Lev?
Question: Why is it Lev has his own life support system (space suit)? Did they have extras on the shuttle? Or was he wearing one of the pilot's suits (when they locked themselves in the cargo bay before crashing)?
Question: I remember watching this movie a long time ago and seeing a scene where Clifford gets a walkman after pretending he's deaf and a scene where Clifford and Uncle Martin are out driving looking for "Sneakers", the dog Clifford stole from the airport. I watched this movie many times after that and have never seen these two scenes again. Does anyone know the whereabouts of these scenes or any other information about them?Movie_Freak 1
Question: Could Professor Snape really get away with putting Neville's toad in danger (when he feeds Neville's potion to the toad at the end of class, saying that it might poison the animal)? I know that he is already a unfriendly teacher, but it seems that there would be some sort of rule against killing an animal that belongs to a student, and parents of other students might be outraged if they heard about it.
Question: What would have eventually happened to Marko after Bryan left him in the basement? Would he just have died and continued to have current surge through him till someone found him? Would he eventually burst in to flames? Would his heart explode? I know he dies, that much is obvious. Just curious as to what happens in the longer term.The_Iceman
Question: Maybe this is just an assumption of mine, but since Malcolm is dead why can't he see the other dead people, ie the three hanging in the school?
Question: If Cole truly knows that Malcolm is a ghost throughout the film, then how do you explain the advice Malcolm gives Cole to "listen to them [the ghosts.]"? Isn't Cole already doing that by listening to Malcolm? How did Malcolm really help Cole deal with his ghosts and fears if the key advice he gave him was something Cole already did the moment he met Malcolm? If Cole already knew to listen to ghosts (e.g. Malcolm), then how did Malcolm really help Cole in reality? (Or was the point of the film more that of Cole helping Malcolm instead?)SteveQ
Question: In the scene where Gatsby is telling Nick his origin story, Nick narrates that Cody (a man he saved and sailed the ocean with) died and he was cheated out of his inheritance by Cody's family and he was once again dirt poor. After this part has been narrated, a clip of spinning newspapers is shown of what happens to Gatsby after this. As this happens, if you listen in the background, you'll notice that there is a song beginning to play. What is this song that is playing? (01:09:40)
