Question: Does Missingno, the infamous "Pokemon 000" glitch from Pokemon Red/Green (Red/Blue in the states) appear in this movie?

Chosen answer: Missingno is a glitch from the video games, and is not a real pokemon, so no.

Question: During the introduction to Woody's Roundup, as Woody watches himself come through the swinging saloon doors, the area around his holster appears blurry. Was this in keeping with the degraded quality of the tape footage, or is this censorship of a gun?

Chosen answer: It isn't Woody's holster that's blurred, it's his hand. And yes, the blurred effect is due to the video tape's degeneration.

The Mind of Evil - S8-E2

Question: Why does this serial only survive in black and white. If it was made in colour, why did the BBC have black and white copies in the first place?

Josman

Chosen answer: The reason this serial only exsists in black and white when it was recorded in colour is because in the 60's and 70's the BBC wiped and reused video tapes, some of which were Doctor Who. Luckily copies were made and sent to other countries, most of which didnt have colour TV's. These copies were later found and returned to the BBC archive.

Question: At the end of the movie, at one point, Francis loses the stick bug. While looking for him, he says, "I'm right here, the only stick with eyeballs!" or something like that. Can he actually be found on the screen or, for comedic purposes, was it impossible to find him?

Chosen answer: For comedic purposes, it's impossible to find him.

Question: After being asked to go to periscope depth, why would Mancuso bring the Dallas along side of the Red October rather than remain behind him and keep his advantage?

Chosen answer: Everything both captains are doing is a gesture to the other. Ramius keeps his torpedo tube doors closed to show he doesn't want to fight. Mancuso moves along side him as a gesture of trust.

Jason Hoffman

Question: At the end of the movie while the gang is pulling out the guts of the spider, the camera zooms to the wall showing a shadow of all of them ripping out what looks to be the shape of a human. What exactly is this that they ripped out of the spider?

Talespin798

Chosen answer: According to the book, it is IT's Heart. Although this could be wrong due to the common transition between books and films where the director decides to change the odd thing. It would make sense that it is IT's heart though, as they are punching through the chest of the spider.

Awesomo

Question: Why did Mccabe turn against SWAT at the end?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: Because he was offered a lot of money. $100 million is a lot of money to turn down for someone on a policeman's salary.

Question: What is the name of the song during the teaser trailer, during the race?

Chosen answer: The song I think you're referring to is Westbound Sign by Green Day.

Question: When Uncle Buck is going to the party to get Bug, he is stopped at a red light and there are two parents in the car next to him. The father says, "don't go in there with that hat on, they'll kill you". Why would someone be killed for wearing a hat?

Chosen answer: He's being sarcastic, as Buck says in the beginning some of his hats anger a lot of people, which probably connects to when his hat gets taken by one of the teenagers at the party.

Question: Do someone know where can I get a clear picture of Elektra's charm? I want the pic or a replica of the charm that she wears that is in Braille. Please help me! Thanks.

marianella

Chosen answer: There is a replica of the one she wears at these two websites: http://www.moviereplicasdirect.com/marvel-elektra-pendant-prop-replica-from-limited.html. Also http://www.amazon.com/Elektra-Pendant-Replica-Jennifer-Garner/dp/B000RJ76XI.

Question: At one point, Carl asked Russell why he called Phyllis (Russell's mother) by her first name. Didn't Edward Asner, the voice of Carl, say this a lot on some old show?

Chosen answer: Yes, it was a running gag on the Mary Tyler Moore Show (1970). Ed Asner played Lou Grant, who always asked Bess (played by Lisa Gerritsen) why she called her mother Phyllis (played by Cloris Leachman) by her first name.

Question: This applies to both Madagascar movies. Does anybody know why Sasha Baron Cohen (Julian the lemur) never shows his face and is barely mentioned in the DVDs for these movies?

Chosen answer: Sacha Baron Cohen is a very private man; he is rarely seen in public, and when he is in public, he is usually dressed as some of his other movie roles (Borat, Bruno, etc.) He has even mentioned once that he wants his characters to be famous, but he wants to live a normal life, so he is rarely interviewed by press.

Question: How did Benedict have time to visit all of Ocean's 11 without them informing each other? (That is, only Danny should have been surprised to see Benedict.) He had to travel to Connecticut, Utah, Miami, London, New Jersey, Chicago, New York, New Orleans, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles. As soon as Danny knew, he was on the phone (presumably calling the others).

Chosen answer: He probably warned all of them not to contact any of the others or there will be consequences. They all seemed very scared when they met with him, so they all didn't dare to. Except for Danny, who probably did not get warned.

Question: Before the Seamstress is attacking, there was a quick shot of 8. His mouth was sewed so he couldn't scream for help. Why didn't the Seamstress sew 1's mouth closed?

Chosen answer: Simply a character choice to not sew 1's mouth.

Question: In 1955, after Biff gets knocked out by George, there is one man who repeatedly mentions that Biff might have had his wallet stolen. In this movie, we have seen many past, present, and future versions of people. I was just wondering if this man is also seen in 1985 or 2015?

Chosen answer: According to the actor's page on imdb.com, Wesley Mann's appearance as the "CPR kid" is his only role in the entire trilogy. He could be in another time period in an uncredited role, but it's more likely than not that his only appearance is in 1955.

Question: Why didn't Tim Robbins tell Penn FROM THE BEGINNING that he killed a pedophile not his daughter? Penn's character was a gangster from the old days, so he would have known what to do and not to.

katzen

Chosen answer: He was afraid to admit he'd murdered someone. And since he was innocent about the daughter he assumed the real killer would be found. He also assumed nobody would believe him, which they didn't.

Jason Hoffman

Answer: He killed him because he believed that the pedophile was a evil and didn't want anyone to go threw what he went threw as a kid. So he saved the boy and killed the pedophile.He said they were vampires and werewolves remember the conversation he was having with his wife.

Answer: Dave kills the pedophile because he sees himself in him. His experience as a child has led him to have thoughts about harming children himself. He would rather die than have anyone know the shame of these secret thoughts.

Question: Can someone tell me if I'm interpreting this correctly? When Katie changes her mind about fleeing the house and is found clutching a cross with blood on her hand and leg, Micah takes it and burns it, after which she becomes possessed. Was she successfully warding off the demon with the cross and clutching it so desperately that it made her hand bleed, and then Micah wrongly thought it was being used to attack her and inadvertently made her possession a done deal by burning it?

Chosen answer: The screenwriter confirms in the commentary that burning the cross and picture was a mistake because it was the last defence they had.

Question: At the end, when Batgirl punches Poison Ivy, making her fall into that huge plant, why did it curl up and capture her, when it's her plant and she can control it?

curiouskid

Chosen answer: Even the greatest animal trainers still get mauled sometimes (i.e. Siegfried and Roy). It's quite likely that the plant didn't turn down a possible meal when she literally fell into its mouth.

Mr. Monk and the Employee of the Month - S3-E7

Question: When Mr Monk is talking to the two male incompetent employees (I forget their names), one of them said that "two guys came out of nowhere and started pounding on me". Having seen the rest of the episode, it didn't explain why they did this. Does anyone know?

T.Rex.Sheffield.Can+Ash

Answer: They appeared from out of nowhere is referring to them appearing from under the van i.e. the sewer. And beating him is to scare him from future hangouts in the parking lot so that he would not recognize them as they'd leave the sewer again.

Chosen answer: The 2 men that beat up the guy were working with the other girl. They beat up the guy to try and either discourage him from getting the employee of the month or just scare him off altogether.

Question: In the scene where the three boy have climbed through the vent system and are approaching the actual vent, Ox says "Hey! I found a Buffalo nickel!" Does this reference a specific movie or was this just a random line they threw in?

lexius1000

Chosen answer: It is a random line. referencing the rarity of buffalo nickles.
