Question: How does Frank get into the hands of the bad guys after Malcolm crashes into his house? It seems as if one minute the ambulance blows up, the next he is on a gurney.

Chosen answer: Just before the scene ends, somone in black taps him on the shoulder and knocks him out. We can presume that the person in black is one of the bad guys.

Question: According to scale, Cloud's buster sword blade ends at about his shoulder. If he puts it in his holster on his back, how is he able to pull it out with one arm, if one arm is half the length of one's body?

HulkObsessedChick

Chosen answer: Look at long swords and scabbards today. Often, the scabbards have cuts out of the sides so they can be removed easier.

Question: Can't The German use his power to simply rip off the door of the vault instead of opening it via the combination?

Socks1000

Chosen answer: The German's powers could be limited in ways of heaviness of the metal he is manipulating. Meaning the door could be too heavy for him to rip off.

Question: Where exactly does Wolverine's Adamantium procedure take place? is it the same place we see in the second X-Men movie? because they both seem a little different.

LazyBoy09

Chosen answer: Its supposed to be the same place. Namely Alkili Lake, British Columbia, Canada. It's Stryker's base of operations for his Weapon X Program until Wolverine escapes and he is forced to shut down. He then moves to 3 mile Island to complete Weapon XI, where he keeps the rest of his captured Mutants. He obviously continues to use the Lake base off the record, likely changing and adapting the interior as time goes on, which would account for differences between Origins and X-Men 2.

When You Hit Upon a Star - S4-E17

Question: In this episode, when Will (Will Smith) is in the limo with Michelle Michaels (Stacey Dash) there a bunch of people drinking champagne, so the question is: is the women sitting next to Will's left Whoopi Goldberg doing an uncredited cameo?

DOB100787

Chosen answer: Its not really Whoopi.. its a impersonator.

Question: If you were on your seventh day and there was no TV in sight, would Samara still be able to kill you?

Chosen answer: Most likely. We have no idea how far away she can be from the TV she spawns from, or if anybody who hasn't been cursed can even see her. Chances are, she would come out of the nearest TV, and stalk you over a great distance. As we see when she kills Naomi Watson's boyfriend, she can practically teleport, and who knows if her power is limited only to TVs.

Answer: 2 of the 4 teens in the beginning died in a car crash, so it seems Samara can kill you without a TV present.

Answer: Yes, she'd find a way. In some of the original "Ring" franchise media, Sadako (the inspiration for Samara in the remake) can come out of other surfaces, so it'd be logical to assume that Samara would be able to do the same thing. (Or have another method of getting people who have been cursed).

TedStixon

Question: In the scene where you first see Dolarhyde lifting weights, he has some sort of cloth over his face. Is there any significance to this or is it just a weird character trait?

HeyThereKTJ

Chosen answer: Its because he deems himself as ugly (as a result of the abuse of his grandma) which why when he kills he smashes all the mirrors in the houses.

Question: In the opening credits, do Victor and Logan fight in both World Wars as Americans or Canadians?

Chosen answer: In WWII they are fighting for the Americans for sure, you can tell by the uniforms they are wearing. I am not sure about WW1, it was hard to tell the uniforms apart. But since they are fighting for the Americans in all of the others, it is probably a good bet they where in WW1 as well.

Powerless - S2-E11

Question: I don't understand why Adam Monroe wanted to release The Shani Virus? Doesn't he realise just how dangerous it would have been?

SockWearer

Chosen answer: Thats the point - he wants to kill everyone and start a new world with what few people survive.

Repo_Man

Question: In one of the flashbacks, after Kristy put the magnets on Michele's back, why did she eat Romy's hamburger? This just struck me as odd since the "popular girls" in movies are usually portrayed as dieting often, and they usually don't eat the junk food that the non-popular characters eat.

Chosen answer: She ate it because she's a bitch and wanted to hurt Romy. She didn't take it to eat for food.

Question: What kind of car is it that Rusty is driving, when he picks up Danny from jail in the final scene?

Chosen answer: I'm assuming it was the 1963 Ford Falcon Futura Convertible that served as Rusty's car throughout the film. http://www.imcdb.org/vehicle_5165-Ford-Falcon-Futura-1963.html.

If you listen closely it sounds like a late model 5.0L mustang engine in the convertible.

Fallout - S1-E11

Question: Sylar informs Mr. Bennet that as soon as he gets out of containment he's going to collect one more ability from his daughter. To my knowledge they have never met before so this would be the first time they've actually met each other face to face. How does Sylar know Claire Bennet is Mr. Bennet's daughter?

TheOccasionalMetalHead

Chosen answer: It is stated in "Six Months Ago" that Claire was on the list that Chandra had, which Sylar had access to.

How to Stop an Exploding Man - S1-E23

Question: How was Peter able to communicate with Charles Deveaux even though he's been dead for some time?

SeekerOfAnswers

Chosen answer: Charles Deveaux had super powers. It could very well be his powers made it possible for Peter to communicate with him.

Question: Can somebody give me the full 'spell' used to call the corners. The one where they call out to the four watchtowers?

Chosen answer: Nancy: Hail to the Guardians of the Watchtowers of the East - powers of air and invention! Hear us! Bonnie: Hail to the Guardians of the Watchtowers of the South - powers of fire and feeling! Hear us! Rochelle: Hail to the Guardians of the Watchtowers of the West - powers of water and intuition! Hear us! Sarah: Hail to the Guardians of the Watchtowers of the North - powers of mother and earth! Hear us! Nancy: Aid us in our magical working on this May's eve.

Ancient Wise One, teach us thy ways! We summon and stir thee! Lend us your powers, show us your glory! We invoke thee! We invoke thee! We invoke thee! Manon, fill me.

Question: Shouldn't the bodies have rotted? They've been inside the walls for decades, yet still look as if they'd been dead for a couple days - maybe weeks.

Chosen answer: It could be supernatural, but my guess is that the bodies were preserved with embalming fluid. the eyelids didn't decompose so they were preserved too. It wouldn't be too hard to acomplish since it was done in a funeral home by a mortician with a lot of expierence.

Season 3 generally

Question: What's Arthur Petrelli's motivation for wanting to create a formula that gives people powers?

Jane'sBitch

Chosen answer: He feels that powered people are superior to normal humans (much like Magneto from the X-Men franchises) but is aware that the powered people are still a tiny minority and thus are easy to persecute. He also has a similar hunger for powers like Sylar - the more people who have powers, the more there are for him to take.

Voxael

Question: In the graphic novel, 28 Days Later: The Aftermath, Warren is speaking to someone on a phone explaining that the inhibitor has had a reverse effect. First, who is he speaking to and what does the person mean when they say it could have "other applications"?

ModestFilmCollector

Chosen answer: The person he's speaking to could be either a superior of his or a potential client. The 'other applications' are probably related to chemical or viral warfare.

Question: After Babe first tries to herd sheep on the farm, Rex talks to Fly and mentions that the two of them are ancestors of someone. Could this mean that he and Fly are related and have been inbred? When the puppies are for sale earlier in the movie, the sign for them says that Rex is a champion; it seems like a farmer would be careful not to inbreed a champion dog.

Chosen answer: Rex means that they are both part of the sheepdog family, not that they are closely related. He thinks that when Fly told Babe about sheep-herding, she disgraced her whole species.

Show generally

Question: What's the charm on Dean's necklace?

padfootrocksmysocks
