Question: During the course of the film we see the "Tripods" spill out an orange colored liquid. What is that fluid supposed to be?
Question: When Greg, Pam and their parents are in the garden drinking, one of them gets onto the fact that Greg is an only child. Jack says to Greg 'You said you had a sister. You milked your sister's cat'. Then Greg looks at him strangely and looks away. I never get that. Why did he lie about having a sister?
Question: Considering that only Obi-Wan, Yoda, and Bail Organa knew the truth about Luke and Leia's existence, do we know if Bail told his wife about the truth of Leia's background? Also, in episode IV, when Owen says, "That's what I'm afraid of," in response to Beru's comment that Luke has too much of his father in him, it seems to imply that he knows that Anakin is Vader, and that Vader is Luke's father. So how much of Luke's background did Obi-Wan reveal to Owen and Beru?
Question: This is more of a book question really. According to the Tale of Years Pippin and Merry left their offices in the Shire to their sons when they left for Gondor and Rohan for good. Pippin's son Faramir is in his family tree, but looking at the Brandybuck family tree Merry does not even have a wife. Is there some other text by Tolkien which gives more details on this, was the child perhaps left out of the family tree because it was a "bastard" child? Is his son, or the mother, mentioned by name anywhere?
Question: I was wondering about the final scene between Ghul and Batman. Batman says he doesn't have to save him and lets him fall in the train and the microwave generator explode. Despite this film being closer to the comics than the previous films, isn't this still against the "code" Batman adheres to in the comics? This was one of the reasons Bruce Wayne has to stop Jean-Paul Valley's new Batman in the Knightfall/Knightsend series. (Valley had let someone die).
Question: In the scene where Dwight and the ghost face off in the wheel-chairs, a couple of doves flies between them.What movie is this a spoof of?
Question: What is the weakness of the Jedi that Mace and Yoda talk about? I'm thinking that it has something to do with the fact that they cannot sense Palpatine as the Sith Lord, despite him being in the same room as them, and in episode III when Palpatine tells Yoda, "Your arrogance has blinded you."
Question: How come it takes such a long time for the Super Star destroyer to be able to catch the Millennium Falcon in the tractor beam? In episode 4 when Millennium Falcon is captured by the Death Star, it is caught in the tractor beam immediately, and from a much greater distance. I understand the plot requires the Millennium Falcon to escape, but this seems a bit illogical.killin_kellit
Question: At the end when the team are standing in front of the huge fountain and leave on at the time, what is the music in the background?
