Question: I have heard that Calculon winning the Golden Globe in this episode is a spoof of how a woman (Pia Zadora I believe) won the Golden Globe for Best Female Newcomer for a film that was terrible enough that she shouldn't have even dreamed of getting it, and it turned out she won it because her husband had bribed many people to get her to win. Is this true?
Question: In one of the Special Features on the DVD, it shows Sofia Coppola and the rest of the cast and crew fulfilling a pre-filming tradition of holding hands and saying a word that sounds like 'puaba' three times. Can anyone tell me what this word means and why it is a tradition in Sofia Coppola's family?
Question: It's not a mistake (it says so in the corrections page) but when the blond guy has his leg cut off he is wearing a shoe and sock on the other foot. WHY when he's in the basement is he barefoot? Is he meant to have taken off his footwear or was it leatherface?
Question: When Doc Ock is in the operating room, he has a blindfold on. And his reaction when he takes it off appears that he went blind from the implosion. And we also see what he sees from the 4 arms. Its also shown that he is disoriented until the arms point to a direction. like when he flips the taxi, he doesn't seem to see it until the arms see it. So, did he become temporally blind? Or what exactly was it, because at first it did seem that he was blind and was relying on the arms for vision.Kirill Ostapenko
Question: In the scene where Gandalf and Saruman are fighting in the tower Saruman takes Gandalf's staff and sends him to the top of the tower. What happened to Gandalf's staff? When he escapes he somehow gets his staff back and uses it the rest of the movie. Is it another similar staff, or am I missing something?
Question: Time travel question: Harry has been saved after the transformation of the werewolf because of a howl. However, this only happened because of their time travel, so the "first run" is maybe supposed to end somehow differently - e.g. Harry having been killed by the werewolf, making the scenario at the hospital ward unable to happen at all.
