Free Willzyx - S9-E13

Question: The kids save a whale and actually send it to the moon. The last scene and the end credits are shown in silence. What is the point of this?

Chosen answer: The boys had thought they had done this magnificent thing for the whale when it really just killed the whale. The last shot just showed there was no happy ending. As for the silence it might be to keep the audience in anticipation. In the shot we see the whale lifeless and with no sound around. One could think that it might make a miraculous recovery as nothing is happening.

Question: Is there any reason for Darth Maul only blinking once (like an ability that his species has to keep his eyes open for a while), or does the movie just happen to only show him blinking once?

Chosen answer: An enemy just looks more menacing if he's always staring you down. I suppose that makes it more of a "Sith" thing than a "species" thing.

Question: I don't get how Alex could have died in Clear's Dad's cabin with the fishing rod opening the door and the rusty fish hook and the knife flying out. What happened behind the door?

Chosen answer: As Alex picks up the fish hook he smiles and says "tetanus". Although not ideal, Death hoped to infect Alex with tetanus, a lot slower a death than intended, but a death nevertheless.

Question: Why were the preliminary trials for the Chunin exam done as single elimination? It would not really cause the best of the best to be chosen because when two strong Ninjas fight (like Gaara and Rock Lee) one has to lose, while when two weak ninja (Sakura and Ino) fight, one gets to go through, only to be guaranteed failure. How is that fair?

Chosen answer: Out-of-character, because single elimination is the most exciting format for the viewers of the anime. In-character, a possible reason is that the failure of single elimination to correctly identify the second and lower places was only recognised relatively recently - there is an essay by Lewis Carroll (yes, that Lewis Carroll), describing the problem in detail, written in 1883. Ninjas were around in about the 1300's, so it probably hasn't been discovered yet. Of course Naruto's history might not match real history but if you depart from reality then there can be no answer but the out-of-character one.

Chosen answer: The first episode of the 7th season. The One With Monica's Thunder.

Question: Before Nora dies, was there ever actually any chance at all that Tom and Lynette would get full custody of Kayla? I mean, she hasn't exactly known them for a very long time, and there was nothing suggesting Nora didn't take good care of her.

Chosen answer: Full custody was always going to be a stretch simply because Nora was the mother and generally courts favour mothers except in certain conditions. Perhaps the only thing that might have given them full custody was the fact that Nora was moving Kayla with her to Mexico and because that would hamper Tom's visitations. However as you have stated there really wasn't much to suggest they could get full custody.

Question: Did Leela ever find out that Fry has feelings for her?

Chosen answer: Yes Leela knew from early on that Fry had feelings for her. They were pretending to be a couple in 'A Flight To Remember' from season 1 and Fry tried to get on dates with Leela ever since. She just didn't show signs of the feelings maybe being mutual before some of the later episodes.

Question: In one scene of an overhead view of the White House, we can see that the flag on the roof is at half-mast. Why was the flag lowered?

Chosen answer: Because at the beginning of the movie, the asteroid fragments attacked New York and killed lots of civilians. When a natural disaster hits America,the President, as well as many businesses will lower the flag out of respect.

Question: I really liked the deleted song, "No One Would Listen". Is it available on any versions of the movie soundtrack? The one I've got only includes "Learn to be Lonely".

Chosen answer: There are currently two versions of the movie soundtrack in English. A one disc version contains the primary songs from the movie and a two-disc version that includes a complete production, including dialog. Neither contains (sadly) the song, "No One Would Listen." But Learn to be Lonely is simply a different version of No one Would Listen in which Minnie Driver (Carlotta) sings.

Question: I don't understand why Vesper killed herself in the end. Can someone please clue me in?

Chosen answer: She loved Bond and had betrayed him. She knew he would probably die trying to save her, and that if he didn't he would be tortured by the memory, so she killed herself both out of guilt and to save him.

Question: I hear this film has nudity in it and yet it only has a PG rating. Even if it was brief, how did this film avoid an R rating?

Chosen answer: To some extent, it depends upon the rater. However, there is some clarification in the PG description which says "Parental Guidance Suggested. Some material may not be suitable for children. This signifies that the film rated may contain some material parents might not like to expose to their young children - material that will clearly need to be examined or inquired about before children are allowed to attend the film. Explicit sex scenes and scenes of drug use are absent; nudity, if present, is seen only briefly, horror and violence do not exceed moderate levels." As seen in the movie - the nudity was seen only briefly - not more than a second. The rater felt it didn't deserve an "R" rating for that. At the time there was no PG-13 rating, which is what it would probably get today.

Question: I'm just wondering exactly what role Jeff played in this film? It seems he was required just to stumble blindly through the rooms, deciding whether people should live or die, with no real consequence for their death or non-death. Am I missing something, or was his inclusion in the film rather redundant?

Chosen answer: Jeff was another part of the game Jigsaw was playing. Jigsaw picked a man and wife (the wife being the nurse Jigsaw wanted to keep him alive) who were having marital problems after their son was killed. Everybody who Jeff had to decide whether lived or died played a role in his son's death. The judge who gave his son's killer a light sentence. Witnesses who lied on the stand, and the last person, his son's killer. The game was to see if Jeff had it in his heart to forgive those responsible for his son's death.
