Question: How was Loki able to get Mjolnir off him to stop Thor from destroying the bridge if he is not able to lift it due to being unworthy?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: Loki was not able to remove Mjolnir. Thor summoned Mjolnir before he started to destroy the rainbow bridge. Thus Loki was free to move again.

Question: At the very beginning when the twins are talking to Scarlett it sounds to me like George Reeves says something about the "other 48 states" wanting war. Am I hearing that incorrectly? There were only 34 states when the war began.

William Lanigan Premium member

Answer: To answer your question, I looked for on-line versions of the "Gone with the Wind" screenplay. What you are hearing as "other 48 states" is actually "those fool Yankees." The full line is, "Y'know, those fool Yankees actually want a war?" Also, the line is actually said by Stuart Tarleton, played Fred Crane, not by George Reeves as his twin brother, Drew. In writing, it doesn't seem they would sound alike. When I watched the opening scene of "gwtw" on YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ymbmvQJcLDc&t=6s), I can see how the error was made. I might have misheard it, as well, if I didn't already know what the line was from my research. Mr. Crane's enunciation is rather muddled.

Michael Albert

Answer: In the version I am watching it is definitely Reeves' character who say the line, right after he tells Scarlett "War. Isn't it exciting Scarlett?" Then comes what sounds like what I posted. Is it possible there are different versions?

Question: Was there any reason why Tong Po is listed as being played by himself when he was played by Michel Qissi? This is in the film's credit, I know IMDB listed Qissi as the actor. And if this was just a mistake, was there an explanation given as to how it was made or got past editing?

Bishop73

Answer: This is a mistake that has never been explained.

Question: When the guy robs Cher, why doesn't he take her jewellery too? He only takes her bag and phone.

Answer: We have no way of knowing why the robber did not take her jewelry. He may have thought it was cheap costume jewelry and not worth bothering about, unlike her bag and phone.

Question: Do they clone the great white sharks that are fed to the mosasaurus? Great whites are endangered, and it's difficult to see the park getting away with using an endangered species as fodder for an exhibit.

Jukka Nurmi

Answer: Most likely yes, the great whites are cloned, raised in captivity, and used as a food source. They can clone extinct animals, living ones may be a lot easier.

MasterOfAll

Answer: Its possible they breed these animals or that they are indeed cloned much like the same way the dinosaurs are cloned. But perhaps, since this is a different reality, the great white might not be endangered anymore in this movie.

lionhead

Answer: It was never explained how they obtained the monosaurus' food, but it was likely fed a variety of fish, reptiles, etc. Even if they cloned great whites, it would be extremely difficult, it not impossible, to raise and keep that many in captivity. Sharks need specific environmental conditions to survive, including the need to keep constantly moving, otherwise they will die. The amount and cost of all the food it would take to feed all the feeder sharks would probably be more than what the monosaurus eats. The fact that a great white shark is shown appears to be an inside nod to Steven Spielberg's earliest movie hit, "Jaws."

Question: Why did Slughorn even tell Tom Riddle about Horcruxes in the first place?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: Because he made a foolish mistake, not realizing what Riddle intended to do. He was assuming at the time that it was a hypothetical conversation. Horcruxes were not a secret, and there was no reason not to tell a student about different types of Dark magic, and Riddle already knew much about it. He was seeking additional information.

Question: At the very beginning, it says that a family got stranded in a desert. Is it referring to the Carter family from the first film?

Roman Curiel

Answer: Yes it is.

Question: At the end on the bridge when Dom is about to be shot, Brian appears as if out of thin air, behind Dom, car and all, gun in hand, and shoots the bad guy who had to have been staring right at him for like a good minute while Brian drove to Dom, parked the car, got out and aimed his gun. What am I missing?

Stace Mann

Answer: You aren't missing anything. That's pretty much exactly what happens. Zizi is determined to kill Dom at this point and he isn't paying attention to anything else around him. He never even notices Brian until it's too late.

Question: Why does Wolverine tell Ginsen that he tried to kill his daughter? I thought only her fiancé called the Yakuza to kill her (unbeknownst to her father).

ricardoglez22

Chosen answer: Shingen and Mori conspired to have Mariko killed. Shingen felt slighted by his father for leaving the company to his granddaughter and not his son.

Answer: Foot cream.

Question: Why does the Emperor contact Darth Vader and tell him about Luke Skywalker, when Vader has already been searching for Luke since the beginning of the movie?

Answer: The Emperor knows that Vader is aware of Luke. He contacts Vader to tell him to kill Luke when he is found. Vader, however suggests he be captured instead and turned to the dark side. The Emperor questions whether turning Luke is even possible to which Vader states "He will join us or die.", meaning if he fails he fully intends to go through with the Emperors plan of killing Luke.

Season 7 generally

Question: Just what size relationship would the dragon eggs be compared to the adults? In season one, we see the eggs as being roughly the size of eggplants or a child's football, at the start of Season 7, the dragons thereof have grown to 747 (whale?) size. Just how big would the laying mother have been? Even if she reproduced in the equivalent of a teenage pregnancy, the size of the dragons in past seasons, her offspring would have been dust motes compared to her. If Season 7 represents them fully-grown (and think about it if they are not!), the dragon's biological mother would have been truly gargantuan compared to her offspring.

dizzyd

Answer: In the universe shown in this series, dragons can technically grow indefinitely. They continue to grow throughout their lives. They will stop growing, however if they live in captivity in a confined space. There is therefore no standard size for an adult dragon.

Question: When Pennywise is eating Stan's face, why is it he never killed him? Stan was scared enough to be eaten and we saw Pennywise bite Georgie's arm off easily enough, so what took him so long with Stan?

Answer: Its possible It was already weakened by the others not being afraid and Stan was his only source for power.

lionhead

Answer: I think the reason he didn't kill Stan straight away is because well this I my therory but I think pennywise was trying to torture the losers so maybe that why he didn't kill stan straight away.

Question: Two questions. 1. Why were all of Vlad's coins melted down? As far as everyone is concerned, he had died so in a sense his own coins couldn't be used against him so melting them down seems kind of pointless. 2. Why would no portraits be made of Vlad? He had sacrificed himself to save his country and his son so he should be honored in some way.

Answer: Well I just saw it so I thought it was melted down to be used to defend themselves if one would appear again. Or they melted it because he was thought to be the evil and they didn't want to honor him.

Question: When Banjo and Kazooie take Gobi's water for the third time, he tells them he's going to the Lava World. Where is this?

Answer: From what I remember, there was suppose to a "lava world" in banjo-kazooie but never came to be. So in the sequel game, Banjo-Tooie, the lava world became half of hailfire peaks where gobi can be found, with a beard, after you rescue him from witchyworld, first, of course.

Question: How was the guy in Amanda Young's original game supposed to survive? He was sedated and couldn't really move enough, so how was he supposed to get out of being stabbed?

Answer: Yes, he was meant to die. It was Amanda's test not his. Just like in alll the other movies those who are being tested are often responsible for the death of others who don't have a choice in the matter (Saw VI for example when the guy has to choose which coworker is hung and which isn't).

Question: Ron said that Mrs Weasley invited Harry for Christmas weeks ago but why did she not invite Hermione at that point?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: Hermione always spent Christmas with her parents. The Weasleys invited Harry so that he would not have to stay at Hogwarts over the school break. He never spent the Christmas holiday with his aunt and uncle.

Question: What kind of animal is Priscilla?

Answer: Cactus mouse.

Bishop73

If you have the DVD watch the "Animals of dirt" in special features. She is an eye-eye. Found in Madagascar.

If the DVD says she suppose to be an aye-aye (there's no animal called an eye-eye), then she is terribly drawn. 1) Aye-ayes have long, skinny fingers, with an extended middle finger. 2) Aye-ayes have bushy tails, not the thin tail Priscilla has. 3) Aye-ayes are primates and Priscilla appears to be a rodent.

Question: Why did Walker destroy the money instead of letting the villain have it?

Answer: As soon as the villains had the money they would have immediately killed Tucker, Walker's friend. The money was a bargaining chip. He also didn't want them to win.
