Question: After falling from such a height, wouldn't Chevy's body be a bit more flat than it was, even though he bounced off the car at the end?

Chosen answer: Well, yes, but the whole movie is full of stuff that couldn't really happen, like the walls of the club bulging out while Chelios was fighting everyone inside.

Question: The movie takes place on the July 4 weekend, so why is Lucy living at her dorm at Rutgers University? Wouldn't the university normally be closed during the summer months?

Chosen answer: Nope. Most universities offer classes year round.

Phixius

Question: Why didn't the Jedi put two and two together and realise that the bounty hunter that was used to make all the clones was the same bounty hunter that was working for Dooku and trying to kill Padme? Ok, so maybe it wouldn't have been enough information to unravel the entire Sith plot, but surely it would have warranted investigating.

Chosen answer: From the questions that he asks Fett when they meet, Kenobi clearly does suspect precisely that. He questions him, then he attempts to follow him to his destination, where he discovers the link to Dooku. Which part of that doesn't sound like investigating?

Question: Are this film's Zodiac killer and the Scorpio Killer in "Dirty Harry" based on the same person?

Cubs Fan

Chosen answer: Scorpio is loosely based on the Zodiac killer, yes. However, "Zodiac" is made to portray the hunt for the real-life Zodiac killer (as accurately as possible), with only a few ficticious elements thrown in for the sake of story-telling, while "Dirty Harry" is pure fiction.

Question: If the crane kick is done correctly and no one can defend against it, why didn't it work in the fight against Chozen?

Chosen answer: I think the term "correctly executed" is meant to include that the opponent is unprepared for the kick. In the first film, Johnny got confused by the unorthodox crane stance, and walked right into the kick. Chozen, however, is trained in the Miyagi style of karate and knows the kick himself, so he is capable of defending against it.

Question: How is the vampire no-reflection effect achieved?

Cubs Fan

Chosen answer: There are severals ways to go about this. They could film the scene without the vampire in place so there's no reflection of him/her in the mirror, then film the scene with the vampire, and finally digitally splice the two together. Or, for quick passes, they could just digitally remove the reflection and replace it with the background. Camera tricks can also be used by putting the camera at a certain angle in relation to the mirror so it only looks like the person's reflection would be visible if they weren't a vampire. Depends on how much time and money they've got available.

Question: Is it ever mentioned in one of the other movies or in any of the books about why SPECTRE members have the number they do? Is it based on rank, or is it just a codename? (So would Largo be the highest ranked under Blofeld?).

Chosen answer: In the novels, the numbers of members were initially assigned at random and then rotated by two digits every month to prevent detection. For example, if one was Number 1 this month, he would be Number 3 next month. At the time of Thunderball, the leader, Ernst Stavro Blofeld, has been assigned "Number 2", while Emilio Largo is assigned "Number 1". In the films the number indicates rank: Blofeld is always referred to as "Number 1" and Emilio Largo, in Thunderball, is "Number 2".

Question: For his role as Maugrim, why was Michael Madsen uncredited?

Cubs Fan

Chosen answer: Actors sometimes choose not to be credited, particularly in cases where they're playing a role much smaller than one would normally expect them to be playing.

Question: Does anyone know if Carrie and Doug had a baby on the show? And also was it just me, or was Carrie pregnant in real life in one season, and they did not write it into the show, or did she just gain a lot of weight?

Chosen answer: They did have a baby in the series finally. They actually adopted a baby from China, and then at the same time they found out she was pregnant. She was pregnant in real life, but they just covered her up, as much as they could, during the filming of the show.

Question: Is the Dog in glasses a reference to Mr. Peabody, or just a coincidence? I thought if it was, the commentary would mention it, but there was no mention of the gag at all.

Chosen answer: There's no indication that the dog had anything to do with Mr Peabody (especially since the dog didn't speak or do anything other than sit there). It was just a front for a throwaway joke.

GrafSpee

Question: In the scene where they show the caddy's 1st-3rd place trophy, the 2nd place has socks behind the trophy 3rd place has tee's. What is behind the first place trophy?

Chosen answer: It's a single boxed golf ball.

ChiChi

Question: In Sweeney Todd (the musical with the actor Johnny Depp), there's a bit in the pie shop when Sweeney Todd and Miss Lovett go into the attic. In the attic there's a cot in the corner. In the cot there is a weird skeletal baby thing. What/who is it? It doesn't explain.

Chosen answer: It's a doll that Johanna used to have when she was little. It's her baby bed, and Mrs. Lovett has simply not had the heart to throw it out.

Twotall

Question: Why does Daniel get annoyed with Miyagi after he says Daniel was lucky he didn't hurt his hand falling off his bike?

Chosen answer: Daniel's wounds came from fighting the Cobra Kai guys but he tells Miyagi that he was injured falling off of his bike. Miyagi sees through this and sarcastically says that he's lucky his hand wasn't hurt.

Question: I'm about halfway through season 2 on DVD. Without spoiling anything for me, do the gypsies who ensouled Angel ever appear in the flashbacks, or are they only mentioned in passing?

Cubs Fan

Chosen answer: Pretty much in passing although you see descendants of the gypsy clan in season two of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. If you read the first Spike comics with Dracula there's mention of the gypsy clan.

Maria Santos

Question: What happens to each of the women at the end of the movies? Each movie has a completely different love interest, we're left to believe that they have bonded and are in love and set for a happy ending, but by the next movie, that woman is gone with no explanation and he's chasing after someone new.

Chosen answer: Bruce Wayne is notorious for not being able to maintain a relationship for long. The relationships likely fall apart for various reasons, some relating to him being Batman.

Jason Hoffman

Question: What was the point of the piece of robot that stuck to the back of the security car? It never served any major purpose in the movie.

Jack Kaltenbach

Chosen answer: It was just to show that, being composed of a polymimetic alloy (liquid metal), all pieces could be recombined into the whole terminator.
