Answered questions about specific movies, TV shows and more
These are questions relating to specific titles. General questions for movies and TV shows are here. Members get e-mailed when any of their questions are answered.
Question: In Episode II, Anakin jumped out of a moving speeder while he and Obi-wan were pursuing the bounty hunter who put the poisonous insects in Padme's bedroom. Other Jedi do similar falls in the Clone Wars movie and series. So why did Mace Windu die from being pushed out of Palpatine's office window?
Question: I just wanted to check before I post it as a mistake. When Morvin and Foon are fixing the Host, Foon says she spent 5000 credits on phone calls and that they'll never be able to pay it off. At the end of the episode, the Doctor tells Mr. Copper that he has 50,000,056 credits on his card which he says is equal to £1,000,000. According to this calculation, the 5000 credits that Foon spent, divided by 50.000056 = £99.999888. Surely even though they work on a milk market they'd be able to pay that off easily, wouldn't theyProfessor Lazarus
Question: Where do humans get their power from, like electricity? Because there is no sun and I know they're like a big furnace thing, but surely there are no resources left because there is no sun. Also, life cannot be sustained without sunlight, so the film is flawed. But I still love it.
Question: When Riddick is in cryostasis on his way to Mecca, he has a vision of a Furyan woman telling him about the 'crime' that has happened in Furya. She proceeds to walk towards Riddick and we get a panoramic view of thousands, or perhaps millions of tombstones, presumably or rather obviously, of Furyans. The question is: Who went to Furya and buried all those dead Furyans? Who bothered to bury each one and put a tombstone on each dead body? Did Furya's neighboring planet send an expedition to Furya so they could bury the entire population of Furya? Kind of pointless, don't you think? Did they bring with them all those tombstones or were they just quarried from a nearby mine?
Question: This isn't technically a mistake per se, but it involves Spock's funeral. Several Enterprise crewmembers are killed during the battle with Khan, and yet only Spock gets a funeral. Perhaps there was a smaller memorial for the others, and Spock got a full funeral due to his status as captain, but why is Kirk only sending Spock's body to the Genesis planet? I imagine he sent only Spocks's body there since in ST3 there aren't dozens of little regenerated human babies crawling around down there.Vader47000
Question: Towards the end of the film, when Harry and Lucius are talking after leaving Dumbledore's office, after Dobby stops Lucius from casting a spell on Harry, Lucius says, "You're parents were meddlesome fools too". I don't recall any indication in the book that Harry's parents knew the Malfoys. Obviously the Malfoys probably knew the Sirius Black/Peter Pettigrew storyline that is explained in PoA. I seem to recall something in one of the last two films where Voldemort discusses something about the Potters with Lucius.
Question: SPOILER: At the end of the movie, it is common knowledge that Bruce Wayne is dead. A tombstone is erected and Wayne Enterprises are executing his will. Since everyone knows Batman died, did Gordon (or someone else) out Bruce as Batman? Fair enough, they could've come up with a cover story for Bruce's death, but surely people would get suspicious if Bruce Wayne and Batman died around the same time.Brad
