Question: In Australia, where I live, the episodes Blue Harvest Part 1 and Part 2 are being released as a movie. Does anyone know if these episodes are going to be released on the Region 4 Season 7 DVD,(our seasons are numbered differently than the American ones) I don't want to buy Blue Harvest as a movie if it's going to be released as two episodes on the DVD.Blibbetyblip
Question: Is Brian's line "Hey, is that a beer hall?" a joke on how tour guides seem to be obsessed with beer halls? I was on a tour in Salzburg, Austria, and the tour guide just wouldn't shut up about the Salzburg beer hall, so I was wondering if this was a common thing amongst tour guides.Blibbetyblip
Question: At the beginning of the film, when Indy's first shown, he says "Russians" upon seeing the Soviets. Weren't the Soviets just called Soviets and not Russians (since the Soviet Union still existed)?
Question: Healy tries to impress Mary by pretending to be an architect, drugging the dog, getting new teeth, liking the same movies, and by saying he works with handicapped children. Why then would he call them "retards" and say he keeps one in a cage and puts him on a leash like a dog?! Wouldn't he think this would piss Mary off? I never understood that scene and why he would say this.Carl Missouri
Question: I was just wondering, when the satellite hits the water at the last scene, in the background in the ferris wheel, wouldn't it have cooled way before it hit sea floor? I mean, someone would have obviously found some sort of large egg nest unless it wasn't at the bottom of the ocean. And if so, the satellite would have cooled way before it hit bottom. So how would it have heard or awakened the creatures if they were so far down? And if they were not all the way at the bottom of the ocean, how is it possible that no one has discovered these large eggs close to the bays of New York?
Question: The Soviets are led to the temple by a trail of dropped "bleepers". Is this a reference to the trail of M&Ms that Elliot leaves for ET in "ET"?
Question: When they are in the Soviet jungle camp, Indy is shown an alien whose skull is crystal on an 'operating table.' But I thought the last crystal skull was in the bag the Soviets were holding onto. If that's the case, then they had two crystal skulls, not one, right?
Question: What was the significance of showing us Lyla dropping her necklace outside the hotel? Louis didn't pick it up did he?
Question: What was the point of the tank in the desert chase sequence having a turret?It's a British 'Mark' series from WWI. Was it a mistake?
Question: On the DVD, the directors say that the monster was awakened by a satellite falling from its orbit (you can see the satellite in the top right corner when Rob holds the camera out to the ocean at the end of the movie). The date when that event occurs is April 27th. When the monster attacks, it is late May. How did it take a month for the monster to become awakened and attack New York City?
Question: I couldn't understand the joke in the beginning ("In such small portions"). Can someone explain it to me, please.
Question: What happened to the Grail Knight after the events of the movie? Did he become mortal again (due to not having the grail to drink from) and die or did he manage to retrieve the grail?
