Question: How old is Dani? Matthew says they are the same age, but if she is, wouldn't many of the older adults in the movie (Matthew's parents, etc.) expect her to be in school?
Question: This has interested me for ages: Where does Smithers actually live? And how does he get to and from the power plant? I am asking because Smithers is at Mr Burns's mansion most of the time, which gives the impression he is sort of a live-in servant, but in other instances, he is shown to live in a house by himself e.g. Lisa vs Malibu Stacey. And in terms of his commute to and from work, he is seen to drive Mr. Burns around in Burns's car, like a chauffeur, but in the episode where Homer gets promoted and gets the executive spot, Smithers drives up in another car, and not Burns's, which is already there.
Question: In the scene where Robert Muldon is about to engage the raptor in the jungle, he puts down his hat and sets up the shotgun. Then a second raptor appears over his left shoulder. He spins to attack but is too slow and the raptor jumps on him and begins to eat him. My question is: In the theater version of this movie, this kill scene with Muldon in the jungle is different. In the theater version, Muldon spins towards the raptor. After being jumped on and attacked, Muldon is able to hold the raptor back with his shotgun. Then he kicks the raptor back and begins to run down a field. Moments later the raptor jumps on his back and kills him. Why did they change this scene? I only remember this from when I was younger and after seeing it only in theaters. But after looking all over the internet and YouTube for someone else to agree with me that this scene did happen, I came across someone saying that in the book this scene took place, so why film it and remove it later on DVD?Also, does anyone have any idea where this scene can be viewed again? I looked on Jurassic Park DVD Special Features, and still nothing. It's like it was never filmed, but I remember that it was! Please help.Oker
Question: Who was the blonde woman who appeared in one of Umbrella's armed aerial transports that was heading for the Arcadia at the very end of the movie?
Question: Towards the end of the movie my husband thinks he saw braces or at least a retainer wire on the girl who plays the architect. Has this been seen by anyone?
Question: Why did HAL go berserk? I thought it was because HAL knew the real reason for the mission (as Dr. Floyd reveals in the pre-recorded briefing), and was suspicious or curious of whether or not Dave and Frank knew. So when Dave is showing his drawings to HAL, HAL uses this opportunity to discuss the "rumours" with Dave. HAL of course is thinking as a computer in a chess game, and assumes to know what Dave will say next. But Dave thinks HAL is doing some psychology report on the crew and asks HAL that question. HAL did not expect this response, and quickly responds, "Of course I am." Now HAL is caught in a lie and does not know what Dave's next question might be, so he diverts the conversation by creating the AE-35 unit crisis. This, of course, sends the astronauts down a path that he cannot control, and he ultimately must terminate the crew to protect himself.2010, however, went down some other path that did not make any sense to me. Hence the question. I would love the opportunity to discuss.mschiavi
Question: Are there more than three Star Fleet uniform colors? In the episode where Dr. Crusher is pulled into an alternate dimension aboard the Enterprise, there is an older science officer (not a recurring character) who is wearing a green uniform. When he is next to Dr. Crusher in her blue uniform, the difference is quite noticeable. Red is command, blue is sciences and medical, and gold is engineering, security, and ship services. What would green be for? I've only seen it in this one episode.raywest
Question: When this film was being released, I read a rumour somewhere that Lucas originally wanted actor John Houseman to play Indy's father. Given that at the time Houseman was in his mid-80s and in poor health (He passed away when the film was in production), was there any truth to this story?Gavin Jackson
