Question: How exactly was Thor able to get back to Earth when the bifrost bridge was previously destroyed in his movie?

Rydersriot87 Premium member

Chosen answer: In the original "Thor" movie, Loki tells Thor that there are ways into Asgard other than the Bifrost. Then when Thor takes Loki from the transport and the two of them are alone, Loki says "How much dark energy did the Allfather have to use to conjure you here?". Odin used dark energy to open a wormhole to send Thor back to earth.

Question: Between the events in The Incredible Hulk (2008) and The Avengers how did Bruce Banner end up in India when he was last in Canada? Did it have anything to do with what happened at the end of the Incredible Hulk movie?

Rydersriot87 Premium member

Chosen answer: Very probably. The moving around is just how he lives: He goes to some remote area where he won't be recognized, but either the Hulk comes out or someone tracks him down and he has to move again.

Question: Next to the fact this is a terrible movie, can anyone tell me about what the plot was? I mean, seriously. What did the aliens came to do and why did the Americans attack them?

lionhead

Chosen answer: The film, loosely based on the popular Milton Bradley board game, has relatively little plot. When Earth discovers there is a similar planet in the solar system, they transmit a signal to it, searching for intelligent life. Aliens on the newly discovered planet detect the signal and send five ships to Earth. One ship collides with a satellite and crashes, while the others land near Hawaii and erect an impenetrable shield around the islands. The lead character, Alex, is a general slacker whose brother, a U.S. Naval officer, had forced Alex to join the Navy after he got into some legal trouble. From within the aliens' shield, Alex is able to lead a resistance against the alien invasion, eventually destroying them after discovering their physical weakness.

Question: I don't remember if it was mentioned in the movie, but are the three stooges brothers or friends?

Rydersriot87 Premium member

Chosen answer: The original Three Stooges was comprised of two brothers, Moe Howard and Curly Howard, and also Larry Fine, who was unrelated. After Curley suffered a debilitating stroke in the 1950s, his brother, Shemp Howard, took over as the third Stooge. In this movie they're just friends.

Question: Charlie said to Kirby as he was stabbing her "4 years of classes together and you only notice me now" he didn't exactly make a move either, what was stopping him from making a move in all the years he's known her?

Chosen answer: Many guys like girls and don't make a move, mostly because they're afraid of rejection. At that time he didn't have anything to lose.

The One with the Blackout - S1-E7

Question: When they're all playing the game where everyone has to reveal the weirdest place he/she had sex, Rachel says, "Oh, alright. The weirdest place would have to be. Oh, the foot of the bed." This has Joey and Ross much impressed and the girls are smiling too. Could anyone explain the joke? Or are the friends just being sarcastic at Rachel being relatively 'less' adventurous?

Chosen answer: They are being, as you say, sarcastic.

Question: Why does Bettlejuice give Lydia some BS reason why he can't tell her his name, but them puts her through a ridiculous round of charades for her to guess it?

Carl Missouri

Chosen answer: Because he can't say his own name, therefore the charades is the only way he can get her to figure out what his name is to say it.

Guy

Question: When Luke has an argument with Owen and Beru and storms out, Beru says to Owen "He's too much like his father", to which Owen says "I know. That's what I'm afraid of". But if Luke is like Anakin (as Owen and Beru fear), then what caused Luke to not go to the dark side like his father did, if Luke had all this frustration of wanting more control in this movie like his father did when he was younger?

Chosen answer: Luke, despite his typically youthful frustrations, has been raised in a loving family environment. Compared to his father, who was separated from his mother at an early age, leaving her in slavery, raised by the strict Jedi Order, ended up in a secret marriage that he was unable to acknowledge and had a Sith Lord working on manipulating him from the age of ten onwards, Luke's frustrations are nothing.

Question: What is the purpose of the guns and cannons that the Oompa Loompas are firing in the elevator scene?

Movie Lover

Chosen answer: There isn't one. Hence Mike's question about having no point and Charlie's response that candy doesn't need a point.

Garlonuss Premium member

Answer: It was to make poprocks-esque candy.

Question: Why didn't Koslova try to fight while the Jackal is talking to her?

Chosen answer: It was one man...Paul Frees.

CCARNI Premium member

Question: Because the camera is hand-held, it's hard to get a clear picture of what is going on from time to time. Can anyone tell me why the filmmakers had to cut the leg off of their guide, as shown in the footage?

Chosen answer: He was bitten on the foot by a poisonous spider that was hiding in his boot. They cut his leg off to stop the poison from spreading.

Question: Was there any explanation given for D'Leh's father leaving his home and tribe so suddenly?

Chosen answer: It is explained that he decided not to wait for the last hunt and left to find another way to feed the tribe. He left in secret so that others would not follow him abandoning the tribe.

Question: How does the Liparus explode and sink at the end? After the nuclear subs have been destroyed, the ship just starts blowing up for no apparent reason. Was there any explanation for it?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: When the nuclear subs have been destroyed, there's an explosion in the control room, and one of the men cries out "Fuel tank!" Liparus has numerous internal fires raging after the battle with her crew. These uncontrolled fires eventually spread to her fuel tanks and ammo storages, one of which explodes in a huge fireball and finally causes Liparus to sink.

Question: What is the name of the piece of score that plays when Will says goodbye to Elizabeth at the end? I can't find it on the soundtrack.

Brad Premium member

Question: When Gracy is trapped in the sinking ship with the feather at the back of her costume stuck under the cannon, couldn't she just have pulled the individual feather out of the back of her costume instead of pulling it out from under the cannon?

CuriousKid1

Chosen answer: Possibly, but it was attached fairly well considering it didn't break when it was caught on the cannon. If she could though you don't exactly think straight when you're about to drown. You're in a panic.

Question: Are Scott and Jean engaged? In the scene where Jean's reading Logan's mind, she appears to be wearing an engagement ring.

Chosen answer: The ring she is wearing is not an engagement ring because they are not officially engaged until X2.
