Question: Here is something I really don't get. Near the end, Wendy and Kevin find out that Ian was supposed to cause Wendy's death somehow, but Ian would've already been dead. If Wendy hadn't intervened with Ian's original death, Ian wouldn't have been at the fair to cause Wendy's death. Can someone please explain this?

M0vi3

Chosen answer: This is REALLY tough to explain. Ian was NEVER supposed to cause Wendy's death. When Wendy looked at her shirt in the picture, she assumed that Ian was supposed to cause her death. Instead, Wendy was supposed to be crushed by the MCKINLEY sign, following the MCKINLEY shirt. Because Ian's death was skipped, he arrived at the fair, stopping Wendy from going under the sign, thus, skipping HER death. Also, the fireworks weren't supposed to kill Wendy while she laying on the ground, but to kill her while she was SUPPOSED to be under the sign. It was a coincidence that IAN showed up at the fair, and that he was under the sign, and had died. So, Ian was never gonna cause Wendy's death in the first place.

M0vi3

Answer: Well if you look at Ian's death picture he was suppose to be killed by a wood arrow. The sign was just like the flags in the picture. (With the same arrow tip shape). So Ian's death picture really wasn't wrong.

Question: Near the end, before the fair, Wendy is looking at the pictures on the computer, and she sees her picture. The clue is that Ian will cause Wendy's death, but Jason is next to her, and his face is blurred out. Is this another clue to Wendy's death?

M0vi3

Chosen answer: Yes, it is another part of Wendy's death. At the end, on Train 081, Wendy was looking out the window, and the people were blurry, and then Wendy saw Jason's face blurred out in the window.

Question: In the beginning, Richy gets his foot caught in a bear trap. Did Jason put this there or did the people put it there?

tetracore99

Chosen answer: It was left by hunters. Jason doesn't have the mental capacity to set traps for his victims.

Question: I've seen the movie several times now but I still don't know the answer to this: in the beginning of the movie, who kills the two Japanese snipers - zombies or some clones of Alice?

Chosen answer: Based on the sounds to go with the scene, I'd say it is zombies taking the guards out. However, considering following events it is more likely that Alice and her friends have something to do with it.

Show generally

Question: I know that JJ is/was the media liaison for the team we as the audience follow; but a few times other teams have been mentioned. So is she the liaison for the other teams too? (She seemed to go with the team most of the time on their cases).

Chosen answer: Having seen just about every episode, as well as the spinoff (Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior, which focuses on a different team) it seems like she ONLY works with her team, being the liaison and media specialist for them only. The other team didn't have anyone in that capacity, choosing their cases on their own. And since that team specializes in crimes happening now, not after the fact like the original team, they have no need for that position.

Question: Does anyone know how to access the easter egg on the DVD? There is a sign in the lower left corner that says "Keep Out" but I haven't figured out how to access it. Thanks for any help.

MovieFan612

Chosen answer: On the selection bar at the top, move the highlight all the way to the left so that "Play" is highlighted. Press the down arrow. "Keep Out" is now highlighted. Press the Enter or Select key (or whatever it's called on your remote).

Question: In the scene where 777 is curving on the viaduct, is that the crew, with the video equipment and stuff?

AWVR777

Chosen answer: Yes, for the news crew they used the filming crew.

Question: In the mistakes section it comments that Jude Law is wearing a hearing aid in one scene. Does anyone know anything about this? I couldn't find any reference to him having hearing loss online. Is it possible that it is actually just an earpiece?

Chosen answer: Jude Law's hearing is fine, he was wearing the hearing piece so the director can tell him where to stand while they are filming.

Answer: Because when they are sitting in the prison yard side by side Jude law has an earpiece in his left ear, if this is supposedly for direction why don't they both have ear pieces in and not just Jude law or are you suggesting that Jude law requires more direction making him a lesser competent actor or is it just the fact that it IS a hearing aid.

Question: In the scene where Connor and Murphy are walking to the Copley Plaza Hotel, the song playing is just amazing. I've looked everywhere for it but it wasn't listed on the credits and I don't even know the name or who performs it. I've looked for "Indigino" by the Chidros as suggested, but couldn't find anything. If any of you have the name and artist and where I could find the whole version, I'd really appreciate it.

Chosen answer: The same song is in the second movie (just more updated) - Crew cut vs. Poppa M.

Answer: It's by Jèff Danna called Skyscraper Assault.

Go Get Mommy's Bra - S2-E4

Question: So after they find the bra, both men assume that it was left there after a sexual encounter. Women change their clothes in cars all the time. And since Alan usually avoids sexual topics, wouldn't he at least have assumed that it was just left there? After all, when you are dressing after sex you should notice a bra missing; not so much if you were just changing your clothes.

swamphawk

Chosen answer: Alan might have thought the bra was too fancy to belong to a regular woman, "I'd love to meet the girl who filled this", he says. He assumed it was one of Charlie's many women.

Question: What is the point of having Reuben in the gang? What does he do? Provide them with money? Because everyone else has at least one job, except for him.

yagoduppel

Question: I didn't get it, but who was the "ghost" deer that led Harry to the pond with the Griffindor sword in it? Or why did it lead him there?

Mortug Premium member

Chosen answer: It's not a ghost. It's a patronus, like the one Harry conjured in "The Prisoner of Azkaban," to save Sirius Black. Every wizard's patronus takes a different animal form. An as yet unknown ally (revealed in part 2, and the book) sent the doe patronus to lead Harry to where the Sword of Gryffindor was hidden.

Question: What did Obi-Wan mean when he said to Vader "You can't win, Vader. If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine"? Also when he said "Strike me down", did he specifically mean taking Obi-Wan's life?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: Yes, he meant take Obi-Wan's life. By killing him, Vader would release Obi-Wan from his body allowing him to follow and advise Luke wherever he goes.

Question: It boggles my mind as to why Newt runs away from the Marines when she first meets them. She's been living alone for God knows how long and the Marines are the first people she's seen and her only thought is to get as far away from them as possible. Why on LV-426 would she do this?

Brad Premium member

Chosen answer: Because she's a child, her family and everyone she knows has been horribly killed, and she's terrified and traumatized. She does not know or trust anyone, least of all big scary Marines who are carrying huge weapons.

raywest Premium member

Answer: Maybe she is scared that they could be infected. She probably saw a chest burst-er come out of one of the colonists and she is traumatized.

Question: At the end of the movie, when Elizabeth and Will are on the island, why does Elizabeth have to stay on the island? Why can't she stay on the boat with either the Black Pearl or with Will?

feathersl

Chosen answer: She doesn't really have to stay on the island. But that is her home, it's where she is raising her son. Living on a pirate boat is not the kind of life she wants for her son, and she can't stay with Will because he has to ferry those who die at sea to the afterlife. Elizabeth and her son can't follow him there or they would risk death too.

Question: When Tess reveals to Jane that she has booked the Boat House as the location of the wedding she explains that she was only able to book it because of a cancellation. She then goes on to give details of that cancellation. How would she know those details and why would the people that booked her even give her those details or even know them at all themselves? Those things seem private even if it is based on fictional events.

Chosen answer: I'm sure the person in charge of booking the location has these details. Sure it was unprofessional to give these details out, but it happens all the time.

Kimberly Mason

Question: How exactly does an escaped male mental patient who's posing as a woman a) work as a police officer without having violent mood swings most of the time, b) acquire money for breast implants and c) avoid a single physical examination that would have exposed his penis?

Chosen answer: Just because someone has been institutionalized doesn't mean they have mood swings. If this was a manic episode (which it appears to be) there wouldn't be any swings at all. Just manic all the time. It wouldn't last forever, but its different for everyone. As for the money, plastic surgery can be financed! and we don't know if s/he had money stashed away beforehand. And for the last question, I just don't know. Not very likely, but some people get through lots of physical testing that shouldn't. Possibly documents were forged? Just speculation on my part.

Question: What's the story behind Langdon's Mickey Mouse watch? He alludes to it, but never explains it.

raywest Premium member

Chosen answer: In the book it is explained that the watch was a gift from his parents on his ninth birthday.

Mortug Premium member

Question: In the John Wayne film, Frankie Avalon is riding into Sam Houston's camp and is stopped by two sentries. The one questioning him appears to bear a striking resemblance to Robert Mitchum. Is this him?

Chosen answer: No, that's not him. Robert Mitchum has no part in this movie.

Question: I heard they did film an alternative ending, but it was only shown once in a preview session in San Bernadino. In it, Jack swam to and climbed on to the iceberg. He found a polar bear, killed it and ate it and wore its fur until the iceberg floated close to shore. He then swam to land and trekked to an inuit village. They nursed him back to health and 5 years after the crash he found his way back to Rose. If this is true, where can i find it?

Chosen answer: Not even slightly true. And utterly ridiculous. The only known alternate ending is simply a longer version of the existing one, where, before Old Rose throws the diamond into the ocean, Brock and some of his crew try to talk her out of it. Rose convinces Brock to let her do it, explaining that real treasure lies in love, family and friends rather than in jewels. She lets him hold the diamond briefly, then takes it from him and throws it overboard.
