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: Which shuttle takes off first and which one is the one that is usually farther ahead than the other?
Question: I am watching a re-run of Desperate Housewives (not sure of which season) And I see that Edie has a son (Trevor) I did not know that. Here's my question(s) . Where was he this whole time? Who is his father? How did he come to live with Edie? And I don't see him on the current shows so Where is he now? Thanks.
Question: When Bond is confronting Trevelyan for the first time since the opening, the scene ends with Bond getting shot in the neck by a dart. But who shot it? Trevelyan had his hands in his pockets the whole time, and even if he had a dart gun, Bond was shot too quickly for him to have drawn, aimed and fired it. And Bond looked like he was shot in the side of the neck, so it doesn't seem possible he could have been shot by the figure from behind.
Question: Throughout the film, you see the water fountain in the middle of the town. How is that effect of the water done? Is it shot in real time?
Question: Evie was able to translate the ancient Chinese on the Eye of Shangri-la, so that means she has some knowledge of the language. So why did she leave it to Rick to tell the resurrected General Min that they were on his side? (All she said in that scene was "I don't think he speaks English.")
Question: Warning: Spoiler. At the end of the movie, it's found that three of the victims had managed to escape; only one was actually returned to the parents. It isn't known if the other two were recaptured by the killer or managed to get away (but went into hiding). Why didn't the police just go back and question the killer's accomplice? He'd likely be able to reveal whether any of the boys had been recaptured. (We're never told if the accomplice had died by that point, or whether he was unavailable, or whether nobody bothered asking him.)
Question: What was the point of Dracula blowing up the clubhouse? He obviously knew the kids weren't there because he tells the father that he is going for his son.
Question: In the "switches" mission in Agrabah (when you're flying on the magic carpet) what should we do to trigger them?
Question: In this episode Parker is seen in Professor Walsh's psychology class with Buffy, in spite of there having been no reference to them being in any classes together until this point. Furthermore, it is suggested in various conversations that they weren't taking any classes together. It seems inconsistent with Professor Walsh's character that she would allow anyone to sign-up last minute. Mistake? Or can someone come up with a reasonable explanation (other than a convenient writer's decision)?
Question: Rumour has it, that one of the mannequin moves its eyes, now I have noticed that Frank moves in 'the trap on Robert Neville' scene, but I was specifically told that one of the eyes move. Now I have a few questions for this: firstly, is this the truth, or false? Secondly, if this is true, which mannequin moves its eyes? Lastly, is this a figure of Robert Neville's mental breakdown?
Question: I was watching some of the movie on TV. In the scene with Peter's birthday dinner, when Peter says he has been busy, Harry asks "Taking pictures of Spider-man?" instead of "Taking pictures of your friend?", like on the DVD I have. Is there any reason why this was changed?
