Question: Who is the Jedi Syfrideous (sic) that is mentioned in conversation between Obi Wan and the prime minister of the cloning community?

Chosen answer: Jedi Master Sifo-Dyas was a respected member of the Jedi Council. Secretly, he was becoming increasingly dissatisfied with the Jedi policies, and foresaw a future where an army will be required. Encouraged by his Jedi comrade Count Dooku (who was, by this time, quietly learning the ways of the Sith), he asked the Kamino cloners to prepare the clone army, based on the template that Dooku (under the name Tyranus) recruited. He was then eliminated by Dooku to prevent the Jedi from finding out about the army before the time was right.

Question: How can Sabertooth take so much damage from Wolverine and still be fighting fit throughout their confrontation? He takes at least two deep stabs in the chest from Wolverine yet seems almost totally unaffected. Can Sabertooth regenerate like Wolverine?

Chosen answer: Yes, Sabertooth regenerates like Wolverine. In the comics, he has at times been presented as Logan's father, although at other times other writers have disagreed.

Carl Fink

Question: During Wallace's execution, he stares at a child in the crowd, who stares back and smiles. What does the child symbolise?

Chosen answer: I think the child symbolizes purity. Overall, Wallace is a pure man in the sense that he's uncompromising and fights for his convictions without wavering. He's not tainted with compromise, politics, and other things that other men succomb to. By seeing the child, he's reminded that he has to stick to his pure ideals of freedom, and not crack under the strain of torture.

Show generally

Question: I watched the show for a while when Sabrina was in high school, and then I stopped. I recently saw an episode, where Sabrina was living in her house and her aunts were gone, but she was living with two other girls. Who are those girls and where did her aunts go?

Chosen answer: Those are her roomates. The first season Sabrina was in college, she moved out of the house that she shared with her aunts and she moved in with 2 girls plus another guy. I think her aunts went back to the other realm since the 2 actresses (Caroline Rhea and Beth Broderick) who played them left the show. The guy roommate also left the show the same time as Sabrina's Aunts. Then Sabrina and her roommates moved into the house.

Question: I know this may seem like an odd question, but WHY did David choose the 'real life'? Surely, when he wakes up he'll have no one, all his friends will be dead, he might not be allowed to take back control of his company, etc. Also, if he won't remember anything, won't be like a baby, starting life again with 35 or so years on the clock? This choice really confused me, why would he choose this over a perfect life?

Chosen answer: Because he wants a life that's real, not one that lost in the past, that he'd always know wasn't really real. The life that he faces in the future might not be perfect, but it'll be real, not just a dream.

Question: Am I the only one who thinks the Federation uniforms look like Nazi uniforms, especially Carl's Leather Jacket? They also have insignia on the collar, as the Waffen SS did.

Chosen answer: This is intentional, since the government in the movie is a fascist, totalitarian one, not unlike the Nazis (this fact is played up more in the book).

Question: What's the name of the song that plays when Austin is running from the final football game to meet up with Sam in the crowd?

Question: Is there any explanation as to why Obi-Wan doesn't use force speed to get through the hallway while Qui-Gon and Darth Maul are fighting?

Chosen answer: It's never really stated that he doesn't. It is a very long corridor, and he was quite far behind. He may have been "saving" his force powers to use in the fight, or Maul may have been exerting his own influence to either stop or dull Obi wan's own force powers. It may have even been the force's own will. Maul was quite easily holding his own against the two, and technically defeated them both. Without the anger/rage that Obi Wan felt after seeing Qui Gon get cut down, he probably wouldn't have fought half as well, and Maul would have emerged victorious.

Question: Where can I find some hand held fans like the ones used in Masquerade? I'm pretty sure they don't sell them in regular department stores, like Wal-Mart or something, but I can't think of where to look.

Chosen answer: They have them at Party City. try other party goods stores or costume shops.

Question: Does anyone know why the deleted scene in the DVD was cut from the release?

Chosen answer: Because it only slowed the action down without bringing anything new to the plot.

Sereenie

Question: Does anyone know why the Three Little Pigs have a German accent?

Chosen answer: The story of the Three Little Pigs originated in Germany and came to America with German immigrants. Thus the German accents.

Question: What kind of gun is the weapon that Cypher uses to wound Tank and kill Dozer?

Chosen answer: It is an electrical lightning gun, gives an electrical charge that can scramble the workings of the machines, it's the only real thing that can hurt the machines.

Ben W Bell

Question: In the prison, the priest has several books, a chair, table, etc. Where did he get these things? I assume he wasn't given them, as the prisoners are expected to live with absolutely no creature comforts. He could have made the chair and table, but out of what? He wouldn't have been given any materials. How would he make something out of nothing?

Chosen answer: Priests, as men of God, tend to be considered differently from others - it's reasonable to think that the guards would have allowed him a few privileges denied the other prisoners.

Question: What is Lynn's connection to the Nite Owl killings?

Chosen answer: She doesn't really have one - not directly, anyway. The only link is that Susan Lefferts died at the Night Owl, and Bud saw Lynn with Lefferts when he was buying the alcohol for the party. Lefferts had the bandage on her nose at the time, which sparked Bud's curiosity and prompted him to seek out Lynn after Lefferts was murdered.

Question: Is the song 'Into the West' by Annie Lennox, about Frodo leaving Middle Earth?

Chosen answer: Essentially, yes, although much of it was actually inspired by the death of Cameron Duncan, a young filmmaker who was a friend of the cast and crew.
