Question: Is Wolverine actually a 'mutant'? Since he had the adamantium surgically grafted in his skin, it didn't come naturally like mutants do.

Chosen answer: Yes, his mutant abilities are enhanced senses, enhanced strength and agility and rapid healing, along with retractable bone claws. His healing factor is what allowed him to survive the implantation of the adamantium.

Question: Why do Nicky, Adrian and Chasias always stand on things that are hot? examples include: Nicky sitting on a barbecuer at the apartment, Adrian (as the priest) standing on a perfectly good pepperoni pizza (shame on him) and so on, so why do they stand on hot things?

Chosen answer: They all grew up in Hell, so Earth is freezing cold to them.

Question: I remember watching this in a cinema while i was in America and at the end when Fiona goes to kiss the prince she headbutts him instead. But when i got it on DVD in the UK she doesn't headbutt him but hits his neck. I guessing they changed this for the violence rating, but my question is: is this only changed on UK DVD or everywhere?

Chosen answer: In the UK, headbutts are frowned upon by the ratings boards. Films such as The Matrix, Wild, Wild West and Fight Club all had to remove headbutts from the UK versions. As for the headbutt in other versions, the UK version is the only reported version to have the headbutt removed. http://www.dvdcompare.net is a great site to compare other versions of DVDs from around the world.

Question: When I saw this movie in theaters, I seem to recall a scene where Gimli had to be blindfolded because they were entering a sacred Elf place in a forest. Gimli doesn't want to be, but Aragorn (I think) says that they will all go blindfolded. I can't find it in the DVD release but my friend, who has actually read the book, says that the scene is in book. Did they cut the shot out or did I just pluck this out of thin air?

Chosen answer: That scene is only in the book, it was never in any cut of the film.

Question: I know that someone has earlier stated that the girl in red was the only thing shown in color in the movie (except for the last scene), but I'm pretty sure that some of the candles were in color. Is this true?

Chosen answer: Yes.

Question: In the credits it lists the name of the dark haired bride as Verona - it does this in the game as well - but I can't find that name spoken anywhere in the film. Where is it, if anywhere?

Chosen answer: Her name is never spoken, but the two other brides' names, Aleera and Marishka, are spoken.

Question: One of the Easter Egg entries says an egg is on every DVD and can be accessed by entering '35' when the alien writing appears on the screen. I have tried this, but it doesn't work. Can someone please go into a little more detail for me or explain why it might not work? The other easter eggs can be accessed fine.

Chosen answer: I did some research around the net and it seems this only works with region 2 DVDs.

Question: Why did Dudley order the killings at the Nite Owl in the first place?

Chosen answer: To get rid of Stensland and take over the drug racket. Dudley knew if he killed Stensland seperately the police would start looking into why they would want to kill a cop. Killing him and everyone at the Nite Owl then making it look like a robbery would just make it look like Stensland was in the wrong place at the wrong time, but as we find out later it was set up to look like that and also could easily be placed on the black criminals.

Question: At the very end of the movie, when Harry discovers the secret room, he sees many vials of the performance enhancer that his father was working on. Why did Norman Osborn need so many?

Chosen answer: It seems likely that a large number of samples would have been created during the initial experiments - Norman simply took them away and stored them to prevent anyone else from doing what he did. It also gives him the option to repeat the experiment if he feels that the effects are wearing off - remember, it was highly experimental so it would be hard to predict precisely what would happen in the long-term.

Question: What is the name of the song playing the background, when Carrie is intimate with the recovering alcoholic? She sings,"If there's a cure for this, I don't want it."

Chosen answer: "Love Hangover" by Diana Ross.

Jane Doe

Question: If all the characters in the two movies die in similar ways, how are the first two deaths related? (The strangling and the eye impaling.)

Chosen answer: The deaths aren't related. What is meant by the fact that the characters in the 2 films dying in similar ways, means that all of them have an accident that should have killed them, but they survived. However death catches up with and eventually they all die, just like in the first film. That is the connection between the two films.

Silent Partner - S1-E6

Question: I believe it is in this episode where a song is played near the end, that goes something along the lines of "I'm on the outside, I'm looking in, I see your true colours" can any one tell me what the song is called, who it's by and where I can find it?

Chosen answer: It's called 'Outside' by the band Staind. It's on their Break the Cycle CD.

Question: Why are they always naked when returning from the future?

Chosen answer: Reese explains that only living things can come through the portal. This is why they can't bring any equipment, including clothing. The Terminator can come because it's covered in living skin.

Phoenix

Question: Why does Ray freak out when Charlie turns on the hot water in the bathtub?

Chosen answer: When they were children, Ray witnessed Charlie being burned by hot bath water. I think Ray says something about how he was left to look after Charlie while Charlie was in the bath, and Charlie got burned by the hot water. That memory must be very strong for Ray, and not comprehending the passing of time, Ray did not want to see Charlie hurt again.

Question: Why does the alarm go off when Dave puts the Pick-n-Mix in his mouth and then stop when he steps on it?

Chosen answer: It's a sight gag. Dave's essentially stealing the candy, so the alarm goes off. When he crushes it, the alarm stops. It wouldn't really happen, but it's funny that the alarm stops when he removes the candy.

Question: When Lovejoy says to Jack, 'It's interesting. The young lady slipped so suddenly and you had time to remove your jacket and your shoes.', what exactly is he getting at? That he's figured out Rose attempted suicide, or he's accusing Jack of attempted rape?

Chosen answer: The story Rose and Jack came up with was Rose was looking at the propellers and suddenly slipped and Jack rescued her. Seeing that Jack had his shoes untied and jacket off means he had more time then he lets on, making Lovejoy suspicious of Jack and what really went on.

Question: During the basketball game near the start of the film, what does Danny say to Seth after Seth gets into the bet with the black guy that makes him say, "Danny, when I want your opinion I'll ask for it"?

Chosen answer: Danny says "It's 8-6, Seth" meaning that the black guys only need to score 2 more hoops, whilst Seth's team needs 4. Danny doesn't believe Seth can win, so he is reminding him what the score actually is.
