Question: When nomads shoot the person and he is dying, he says something in the ears of Mr. Towns and Mr. Towns reacts with bad expressions. This is never revealed later in the movie. What possibly could he have said in the ears of Mr. Towns?
Question: Throughout the film, are there a series of deliberate 'Back to the Future' references? I noticed two straight away - Daniel says 'If you put your mind to it anything is possible, you can do anything' which is repeated several times during BTTF. Also, when Daniel and Kumiko are at the dance, the song 'Earth Angel' can be heard. The song at the climax of the dance in BTTF. Are these deliberate, as BTTF was a year before this movie?Professor Lazarus
Question: What would happen if William would stand on the other side of the cage? Then needles wouldn't stuck into him. Needles would hit the cage and start sprinkle acid in direction of mother and son, most likely hurting them. We learn from previous movies that Jigsaw planned his traps very carefully ,so he wouldn't allow that mother and son would hurt in any case.Feather
Question: Homer bans Bart from ever watching "The Itchy And Scratchy Movie". But what exactly is the audience meant to think about this? Is the audience meant to think Homer did the right thing or Homer did a severe thing and the audience wants Bart to watch The Itchy And Scratchy Movie?
Question: In the office scene where Mike and Olin are speaking of all the deaths that have occurred in room 1408 they say a specific number for each type of death. I added all the numbers up and got 43 but Olin said there had been 56 deaths total. Is my addition wrong or was is it a coincidence that there were 13 deaths they didn't speak of?
Question: OK I have a few questions about this. (1) Who blew up the car with Hannah? Was it Jim or Clare? (2) Ethan taunts Krieger because he has the real NOC list, but was it also because Ethan knew he was a traitor and wanted him to walk out? (3) At the end when Ethan is disguised as Phelps, he is wearing the same trenchcoat as the real Phelps (who then shows up). Is this because he knew Jim was onboard, or simply cause he knew how his old boss loved to dress? (4) And lastly after Clare is killed, Hunt acts devastated and goes after Jim in anger. Given that she was a traitor who was always on Jim's side (and might even have killed Hannah), why would Hunt feel this way at all?Gavin Jackson
Question: This is more of an observation than it is a question; however feel free to chime in with an answer. I realize that this is a "hidden footage" movie and each scene has to depict that. But Alex's actions at the end of the film seem to go against human logic. She finds her boyfriend dead in her closet, she knows her dad is across the street and that something is terribly wrong. Why would she take the time to find the video recorder, turn it on and take it with her to find her dad. Someone who just found a dead body in her closet would simply run out of the house or call the police; WITHOUT taking the time to worry about the camera.
Question: "I call it Earl Jr. Likes to hang out with Daddy." When Earl says this, he is referring to the gun he pulls out at the coke factory, and uses it throughout the movie. It is an awesome little gun, and appears to be an automatic pistol of some sorts and has a flashlight attached to the front. Does anybody know what kind of gun that is?Quantom X
Question: When this came out on DVD, the box said it was uncut and uncensored. So why was all of the swearing censored?
