Question: Was the third verse of "Hosanna" (where Christ urges the crowd to "sing out your songs, but not for me alone") written for the film? I haven't heard it in any other versions and in most foreign versions of the stage play the verse is not included.
Question: Which movie correctly depicts Roman armor as it looked, is it Gladiator or Ben Hur or some other movie set in the Roman time-period?
Question: In the trivia, it's said that the animals that were in Naboo, where Anakin falls off of, were in the asteroid battle with Jango and Obi Wan and in the arena battle running and on fire. I'm just wondering where and when do both of these things are seen.
Question: At the end of this episode, when they are performing the "soap opera" for Calculon's benefit, Leela is dressed in a black dress and blonde wig with sunglasses. This ensemble looks really familiar to me, for some reason, and I wondered if it was perhaps a parody or homage to a well known soap character/actor/plot. Can anyone clue me in? And, on that note, is Fry's character of 'Congo Jack' a parody of something or just a stereotypical soap character?
Question: I've heard this movie contains subliminal images and messages. Is this true and if it is, what are they?
Question: In the scene where Nemo gets initiated, Jacques the shrimp wakes him up, says "suivez-moi", swims off and then clarifies - "follow me". In the French version, however, Jacques first says something similar to "suivez-moi", then when he comes back he says something almost completely different. What is the English translation for the second thing he says?
Question: During the opening title sequence, one of the future shots, there is a shot of a starship flying over the camera. The engines (3 large, with 2 sets of 2 small ones in between, glowing blue) and the ship's movement look very similar to the star destroyer from Star Wars New Hope's opening shot. The theme for the Enterprise's opening is pioneering and exploration, and Star Wars was a revolution in special effects (and ILM has done some shots for Star Trek). Is this a tribute or just coincidence?
