Question: When Isolde asks Tristan "how many have you loved before me and after me" does she mean how many he had slept with or how many he had loved?

Answer: Both or either. Basically what she's asking is, "Are you really mine and no one else's?"

Question: What's the song playing when Dewey and the band are going to the battle of the bands? It's in the bit when Mullins says that all the children are missing.

Answer: Led Zeppelin's Immigrant Song.

The Immigrant Song is played when the band is returning from the auditions not when they are going to the Battle of the Bands.

Question: As Robert Langdon sinks to his knees on top of the Louvre at the very end of the film over Mary Magdalene's tomb, what is the music playing? It's very uplifting and would logically be the last track on the soundtrack, but on listening to a sample on iTunes, the style of the tracks seem completely different.

KingofallSamurai

Chosen answer: The track is "Chevaliers de Sangreal" on the official soundtrack. It's the second to the last track (13).

Question: What is the song playing right after O-Ren Ishii kicks off her shoes in the snow right before her and The Bride have their duel? I checked IMDB and the actual soundtrack but I can't find out which song it is.

Answer: If you're thinking about the song that starts with the clapping then it's called "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood" by Santa Esmeralda. On the soundtrack it's number 10.

Question: Does anyone know where a video interview can be found online of Georgie Henley, Skandar Keynes, Anna Popplewell, and William Moseley?

Show generally

Question: Why was Margret's last name changed from O'Houlihan in the film to Houlihan in the TV series?

Answer: The sheer alliteration makes "Houlihan" a more natural match for "Hotlips" than "O'Houlihan," which the creators of the TV show recognized. The character was based on real-life MASH nurse "Hotlips" Hammerly, which also may have prompted the switch.

Question: Why were the people singing in the streets shot at?

Answer: Because they were singing revolutionary songs. And at that time was strictly forbidden.

Show generally

Question: In the show's theme music, the person who says "Wooooo hoooooo hooooooo" sounds like Dale. Is it him?

Answer: Listening closely, it's not Dale. It's not meant to be anyone from the show.

Question: What was Mickey's motive for being one of the killers?

Answer: Mickey's reply when Syd asks, that he's "always been a follower," indicates he's probably just psychotic, looking for any excuse to kill.

Answer: He hadn't no motive. Remember? It was the millennium. Motives are incidental. That and he was out of his mind. And he wanted to blame the movies.

Alan Keddie

Question: Is there any word that Felicia (the other girl that Peter dates in the TV series) will be in the movies?

Answer: There are no indications of Felicia Hardy showing up any time soon. However in Spider-Man 3 we will meet Gwen Stacy, another one of Peter's girlfriends from the comics.

Show generally

Question: At the end of the last ever episode, when Claire is taking the family photo, Nate whispers in her ear 'You can't take a picture unless it's already gone.' What does he mean by that?

Answer: Nate actually say "You can't take a picture of this, it's already gone." It's kinda hard to explain, but he's referring to the fact that the moment Claire wants to take a picture of is over already, and she can't take a photo of it, just a different, lesser moment.

Question: Is the blind woodsman from a fairy tale or is there some kind of joke about him?

Answer: In Little Red Riding Hood, a woodsman cuts open the wolf. Perhaps the story would have been different from a Wolf's perspective.

Answer: The woodsman makes Tony guess his name, which is what Rumplestiltskin does to the princess in the fairy tale of the same name. Don't know why he's blind, though.

Question: Why did Billy and Stu want to kill Tatum? I've read that she said Stu was bad in bed, but when does she say this in the movie?

Answer: They didn't have anything against Tatum specifically, her death was just necessary for their scary movie plan against Sidney. They also said that anyone who isn't a virgin dies in a scary movie, and we know Tatum wasn't a virgin.

Question: Just before eating the hydrated pizza, Marty says, "I missed that completely," and then nobody seems to want to take a bite. What did he mean by that, and why did nobody want to eat the pizza?

Matty Blast

Chosen answer: Bits and pieces were cut out of the dinner scene. When Marty says that, he's referring to a cut scene where Lorraine mentions that Uncle Joey was turned down for parole again. As for the pizza, no one does take a bite but it seems for reasonable enough reasons. Marty Sr appeared as if he was letting the pizza cool off, Marty Jr was trying to get fruit from the overhead fruit holder, and the daughter was answering the phone.

Extreme Aggressor - S1-E1

Question: How did the BAU know who Unsub was? He had e-mailed his victims and created a program that was sent through e-mail to erase all information of who he was and how to locate him, but the BAU did.

Answer: The team told the local police the Unsub would have already injected himself into the case, either coming forward as a 'witness' or volunteering to search for the missing woman. Once they came up with a profile they compared it to everyone who had approached the police about the case and eliminated everyone who didn't match the profile (wrong gender, age, etc.). They didn't explain it very well, and in real life it would have taken much longer so it's easy to get confused.

So how could they create a profile if the UnSub was able to cover his tracks?

Question: Does anyone know the name of the composer who wrote the actual music performed by Lizzie and Georgiana as well as music for the movie itself?

Answer: The composer is called Dario Marinelli, the pianist is Jean-Yves Thibaudet. Marinelli composed the music that Lizzy and Georgiana play. The only thing he hasn't composed is the piece that Darcy and Lizzy dance to at the Netherfield Ball, which is a piece from Henry Purcell.

Question: Can anyone tell me the name of the song played while Sway and Memphis are sitting in the car waiting for the couple in the window to get it on?

Answer: It's called 'Painted On My Heart' by The Cult.

Question: Did Terrance Howard do his own rapping for the film?

Answer: Yes he did. The lyrics for the songs that he raps in the movie were written by the group Three Six Mafia.

Rollin Garcia Jr

Question: What music is being played when Bridget and Eric dance in the bar?

Answer: La Receta by Kemo the Blaxican.

Question: In the movie, there is a song playing as everyone is hunting the vampires (there are a few split-screen images, and they show a few vampire glyphs), could anyone tell me what the name of this song is, and who sings it? The words 'This Blood' are repeated a few times, but I checked that song and it doesn't seem to be the one playing.

Answer: It's "Hard Wax" by Manchild.
