Question: What is the piece of music in the film when Tess and Terry Benedict are glancing at the artwork on the wall? It also appears during the end credits after the track "69 Police." It doesn't feature on the soundtrack and I can't find it anywhere.

Chosen answer: The song is part of the film's original motion picture score.

Question: I read in an interview that one of the traps could kill the actor and that paramedics had to be on the side of the set during filming. Does anyone know which trap this was?

A Demon Premium member

Chosen answer: I believe this was the water trap, in which the actor was actually placed into a glass box filled with water for dangerous amounts of time. Often the shots had to be done all at once because of the set up, and I believe paramedics were present in case of potential drowning.

Question: I have one question I'd like to ask other viewers. In the opening sequence at 01:48, is it just me or does that look a LOT like Anne Hathaway in a blonde wig? You might need slow motion to few this. The next shot is of the "real" Anne Hathaway kissing her boyfriend and it struck me that they look very similar. At 02:31 you see the blonde again and she somehow looks very different. What do you think? (00:01:45 - 00:02:30)

Chosen answer: I watched this scene several times, and my personal opinion is that the first shot of the blonde woman is not Anne Hathaway. The blonde actress in question appears to be the same woman, although the differing camera angles may make her look slightly different.

Question: What was the purpose of visiting Vesper's boyfriend at the end of the movie? Was he involved? Because I don't remember anyone saying anything about that in the movie.

Chosen answer: He's an operative of the Quantum organisation that Bond is up against who specialises in seducing women who can then be manipulated into helping their cause - in Vesper's case by pretending to be kidnapped to force her to cooperate. When Bond catches up with him, he's in the process of seducing another woman, no doubt to involve her in some scheme or other. Bond tells her the truth and she leaves, leaving Bond to deal with the Quantum agent.

Question: Can anyone give some insight as to what was used to contaminate the hotel reviewer's room?

Chosen answer: I don't think there's any way of providing an exact answer to this question, but I think it's safe to say that whatever materials they used were highly bacterial but not lethal (otherwise the 5 Diamond Award critic would be dead or in serious condition).

Question: When Kate and Chris are in the tunnel (in 1357), Kate tells one of the monks to go tell Arnaut. When did Kate know of the existence of Arnaut, as they had yet to meet?

Chosen answer: Kate is an archaeologist who,d been studying the castle's history for quite a while. She knows the protagonists and who's in charge.

Question: I saw this movie for the first time in years the other night, and I did not remember that Nancy was killed in this one. Is this the last nightmare film that she was in (other than the one where Freddy came to the real world and everybody played real names)?

Chosen answer: Yes it is the last one.

Question: From the Bruces' philosophers song, what do they mean when they say "There's nothing Neecha couldn't teach ya about the raising of the wrist"?

Chosen answer: Well, the whole song is about drinking, so it's pretty clear that "the raising of the wrist" refers to the movement made while drinking. "Neecha" is, in fact, "Nietzsche", as in Friedrich Nietzsche, a nineteenth century German philosopher. So the line's suggesting that Nietzsche was a heavy drinker - that there was nothing that he didn't know about it.

Question: How come Tony Stark put Hot Rod Red on his suit? Is it because he liked the color?

Chosen answer: Yes. He loves messing around with customised cars like that - throwing in some of the red colour is a nod to that. Plus it stops him flying around in a gold-coloured suit, which even he considers a bit over the top.

Question: In the scene where Bartleby and Loki are in the Mooby HQ, Bartleby whispers the boss's secret into his ear, then Loki says, "And you're his father. You sick f*ck!" Does anybody know what the secret actually is?

Chosen answer: The logical assumption is that he is molesting his son.

Question: Would the gas station still be called Shell and not the French word? Also, do they drive on the same side of car and street in France?

Chosen answer: Shell is a Dutch petroleum company that may be better known in Europe than in America - its logo is the same worldwide. French cars have the steering wheel on the left, and you drive on the right in France.

Sereenie

Question: Why does Daphney still have Scooby snacks in her handbag when she hasn't needed Scooby and Shaggy to do anything for several years and she doesn't eat them herself?

Chosen answer: It's just to show that Daphne and the rest of the gang have never really moved on from the rest. Daphne keeps the Scooby snacks to remind her of Scooby.

Question: In the scene where Joker is talking with Cowboy, what does he mean by "I think that Leonard is a section-A" and pretty much the rest of the conversation about Cowboy's sister?

Chosen answer: What he says is "Section 8," the category for a psychological discharge from the US military.

Brian Does Hollywood (2) - S3-E2

Question: I saw this episode on one of the channels where it is syndicated. The part at the beginning (during the action films parody), where Meg tells Lois that Peter isn't going to come out of the coma, was taken out. Does anyone know why?

Chosen answer: Usually syndicated shows run a few seconds shorter than the originals, so they cut out things to make them fit.

Question: In some theaters, the film is shown in 3-D. When the film is released on home video, will it also be in 3-D?

Cubs Fan Premium member

Chosen answer: Yep. The DVD comes in 3-D and 2-D versions. The 3-D versions come with (if I remember correctly) four pairs of 3-D glasses.

Question: It becomes clear that V gives his victims Scarlet Carson roses in memory of Valerie, but how does Delia work out that the murderer is V from the roses? Surely she didn't know that Valerie had written to V mentioning them. Also, are we ever told what V was originally imprisoned for?

Chosen answer: Nothing is ever revealed about V's history before Larkhill so we don't know why he was there. As for the roses, in the original comic book, in order to keep him compliant during his time in captivity, V was allowed to tend a small garden while his health was monitored. It was during that time that he first grew the Scarlet Carson roses and also surreptitiously obtained the chemicals that he would use to destroy Larkhill and make his escape. Whether this can be considered consistent with the film storyline is an open question - certainly nothing in the film actively appears to contradict it.

Question: Why doesn't Frodo get a girlfriend? He's cute enough.

Chosen answer: He's weary of the world from his journey and giving up the ring, so he never seeks love in The Shire, instead going into The West with the Elves.

Question: What was Sean's mother reacting to? She turned with a puzzled look before Dracula's car ever came near the house.

Chosen answer: She heard the tires squealing and just had a reaction to that like anybody else would.

Question: What's the reason why Rafterman doesn't chase after the guy who steals his camera and Joker replies with his own set of "karate moves"?

Chosen answer: Because he knows he cannot possibly catch him. The "karate moves" just shows his frustration.

Rain King - S6-E8

Question: I didn't understand why Darryl's rain business had been working (before the agents arrived). If Holt was the one who had been changing the weather, and he didn't like Darryl, why was he creating rain and allowing Darryl's business to be successful?

Chosen answer: Because Darryl's success makes Sheila happy. Holt loves Sheila and is happy when she is happy. Ergo, Holt makes Darryl successful.
