Question: When Professor X starts killing everyone, he and Jason remain unharmed. Does Cerebro protect them from it?

Chosen answer: Anyone inside the Cerebro chamber would have to be immune to its effects. Otherwise, the professor wouldn't be able to use the machine.

Question: Since all the Clone Troopers are cloned from Jango, does that mean in the old trilogy all the Stormtroopers look like him under there helmets?

Chosen answer: No. By the time of the original trilogy, most of the clones are dead, mostly through warfare, but possibly due to their accelerated aging process (it's not clear whether they were simply brought to adulthood swiftly and then age normally, or whether the accelerated aging progresses throughout their lives). The stormtroopers of the original trilogy are conventionally recruited troops rather than clones.

Question: It looks to me like Andy works in a laundry in the prison. If thats so how come they get sheets delivered from the outside? It looks that way to me when the rock hammer is delivered.

Chosen answer: They take in other laundry to help fund the prison, probably from local hotels or hospitals.

Question: What is the point of John/Jigsaw being in the room with Adam and Dr. Gordon? If some one can fill me in that would be great.

Chosen answer: He was able to observe the 2 and make sure that the followed the rules. Example would be when Dr. Gordon pretended to kill Adam. Zep couldn't tell if it was real or not, but Jigsaw was right there and knew. Plus, there's a clue in the movie, when the dective says "Looks like out killer likes to book himself front row seats." Jigsaw wanted to see how people reacted when their lives were on the line.

Nick Bylsma

Question: When Hanks sings "Every once in a while." he has a guitar with him but he hardly uses it while he sings. He strikes it once or twice but soft enough for the sound to be virtually non-existent. Is that a mistake, or was that meant to happen for comedic purposes, or doesn't the song require that much effort with a guitar?

Chosen answer: He's not really a musician. He is just messing around.

It was super cold water - she died because she was freezing (she froze to death).

Question: I have heard a rumour that there is a deleted scene where Riggs kills the two guys who dropped him off the pier in a straight-jacket. Apparently it was too violent to keep in. If this is true then where could I see the deleted scene?

Chosen answer: This scene is already in the movie (maybe only the Director's Cut). Riggs surfaces just off the pier, picks up a chain, strangles one man with it and breaks the other man's neck. The scene is cut considerably for play on television and in all versions of the movie in the UK prior to the 2010 UK blu-ray release (including the Directors Cut) - although some TV airings since 2000 have used the full uncut version.

Question: When Magneto has kidnapped Rogue, she asks him if he is going to kill her to which he answers "Yes". I don't understand - Magneto wants to use Rogue as a vessel to transfer all his power into, not kill her.

Chosen answer: As we saw earlier when Magneto used the machine on Senator Kelly, it severely drained his strength and had nearly died. Using the machine on the much grander scale on Ellis Island would certainly kill the person at the controls which is why Magneto needed someone to do it for him. Rogue would have been killed had Wolverine, Storm, Jean & Cyclops not rescued her at the last minute.

Question: I don't really get it. Why doesn't he just rewind and start over when things start going bad? Did I miss something?

Chosen answer: He can't start over, all he can do with rewind is view the past. The remote was a learning remote. The choices Michael made were his and they were permanent. Morty goes over this when he explains the virtues of the remote to Michael.
