Question: The title of the film 'At worlds end' implies to me that they considered the world to be flat, but in Beckett's ship there is a globe. Am I reading the title incorrectly or is this a mistake? Also, in the scene in which Sparrow goes to retrieve his 'effects' and a cannonball blasts through the brig, how is this possible, because the ship in the maelstrom was at such an angle that it would have been impossible for the Pearl to fire one through there.
Question: In the very last shot before the credits, the camera has pulled back to reveal a row of tanks containing dead Jackmans. Does this imply that not only did the Tesla machine replicate Angier, but also the tank? One assumes then that Angier has had the forethought to place a floor between where he materializes and the newly replicated tanks appear.
Question: I haven't read all of the Star Wars books, but one mentions Prince Xizor being involved in Owen and Beru's death. Was he?
Question: Something I didn't quite understand about the locations of the places in Middle Earth. In FOTR when the group is trapped on the mountain Boromir suggests that they turn around and take the road to Gondor but Aragorn says it will take them too close to Isengard. In this film however we only see that Mordor is (also?)close to Gondor (Minas Tirith). I don't remember that Isengard was close to Mordor. If all this is true could that mean that Saruman knew that the group was either going to take the road to Gondor OR go through the Mines of Moria, knowing that he could catch them if they went through Gondor?
Question: Why did Beckett not fire back on The Black Pearl and The Flying Dutchman when they joined forces against him? Is it meant to be 'artistic licence'?
