Answered questions about specific movies, TV shows and more
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: What exactly was Hank's "plan" with the lawn darts, shovel and whatnot? I never quite caught that.
Question: In the beginning of the movie when the tanker truck gets blown up, why does the fully intact truck just get launched straight up with flames below it? The source of the explosion would be the truck itself, so when ignited, the truck should have simply been blown up into a million pieces, not launched straight up fully intact.
Question: Anyone want to explain the opening sequence? The guy was able to rocket himself through the window with apparently superhuman speed and reappear behind the shooter within a few seconds despite crashing several stories below. No superhuman abilities, other than absurdly good marksmanship and fast reflexes are stated during the film.
Question: I'm not sure if I was seeing things but during the fight between Hancock and Mary, when it goes all windy and stormy, at one point it cuts to some people who are screaming and running away. I thought I saw a figure that appears to be made out of rocks or similar material and about 10 foot tall, it wasn't our hero or heroine as they were not in that scene so what on earth was it?
Question: From what I can tell Jason went to the American embassy in Zurich, couldn't be bothered waiting in a queue, went through a door and got shouted at to stop, then ran up some stairs and climbed down the wall and escaped. What was his original purpose for going to the embassy?
Question: Jack does not meet the Black mugger/angel again after returning to his former life. He wakes up in his apartment the same date he fell asleep, on Christmas. Were Jack's experiences all a dream?
Question: I know this question isn't specifically related to the movie itself, but I thought it was something interesting to ask: There's a lot of buzz that Heath Ledger might get posthumously nominated for his role as "The Joker." If that happens, could he win? Or asked another way, how many actors have won an Oscar posthumously, if any, in motion picture history?
Question: Early in the film, it appears as though Mr. Wink's metal hand can completely detach itself (note how it has to crawl back to him in the museum), yet he is killed in the Troll Market when his hand (and the chain attached) become stuck in the giant trash-compactor machine. Why did he not just detach his hand at this point, as he did earlier?
Question: When Slim is in the diner, she hears someone call Millie's (the waitress') name. When she goes to the lawyer and says that she got his name from Millie, did she really talk to Millie (if so, it's not shown on-screen), or did she use the name she overheard, so that the lawyer would think that someone in the town recommended him to her?
Question: So when the game RE:2 came out there was an entry to win a role in the Resident Evil film. Who in this film was the winner of that contest or was a winner ever named? I ask because I found my old game disk and the entry was still in the case and I was wondering if someone did win, if so who was it?dablues7
Question: Is it true that the song "I Don't Dance" was specifically written for Corbin and Lucas because they both auditioned for the role of Ryan, but since Lucas was a better dancer, he got the part?
Question: When Pepper helps Stark replace his power cell, doesn't she accidentally pull out the magnet at the bottom? Wouldn't she need to put it back before putting in the new power cell? Otherwise, it wouldn't be powering anything, and the shards could get into his system.
