Question: What happened to the rest of the armada after The Flying Dutchman and The Black Pearl sank the Endeavor? Did the English all just leave, or do we assume that the Pearl, Dutchman, and the rest of the pirates turned tail and fled?I doubt the armada would have just let them go because they sank one ship.Julie Wegner
Question: In the scene where The Bride smashes Buck's head in with the door, surely after 13 hours (the time it took for her to sit in the car and 'wiggle her big toe') someone would have noticed Buck was dead and the police would be involved. This would probably lead to them searching his car as well. I know it may be a deliberate mistake seeing as The Bride hasn't been chased for killing anyone else, but there were police in the beginning of the film so they do exist.
Question: When Stan Lee makes his appearance and talks to Peter Parker he says to him that "One man can make the difference" The same thing the founder of Knight Industries (Knight himself) says to the young Michael Knight in the first episode of Knight Rider, before he passes away. Is it kind of a tribute to the series?
Question: *spoiler warning* How powerful are the pumpkin bombs? When Peter uses one on Harry at the end of their fight in the lair, it detonates right next to his head, but Harry later comes back with nothing but burn scars on the side of his face. At the end of the film, though, the pumpkin bomb used on Venom completely incinerates Eddie Brock and leaves nothing behind but a small flaming strand of the symbiote.
Question: I've read that in the expanded/extended universe books, Palpatine has a son named Triclops, who he was disappointed in. Why didn't he like him? Why wouldn't he want to try to train his own son instead of spending time trying to get Vader's son to join him?
