Question: When Hermione is using her Time Turner to attend multiple classes scheduled at the same time, she appears out of nowhere in the middle of the lessons. For this to happen, she must be travelling to the classroom after the lesson and then using the Time Turner in the empty classroom to send herself back. Is there any reason why she does it this way (rather than just travelling back to before the lesson and then entering the classroom with the others)?Moose
Question: What's going on with Rico and Carl in the card guessing scene? I originally thought Rico was trying to guess the value of the unturned card was but then he says it's the ace of spades and it turns out to be exactly that yet he still gets it wrong. Could someone please explain what's happening there?
Question: This actually applies to every Star Trek series but it features most prominently here: Exactly what purpose do the little dots seen moving across the bottom of every bridge main viewer serve? There's no mention of them in any technical manual or website that I've seen yet they seem to be a fairly standard feature of Federation starships from any era.
Question: What is the riff played in the scene where the guys are about to attack the Stella's brother beside the road (e.g. one of them takes off his belt and Jam takes out his drumsticks)?
Question: This question is more about the book, but I'll ask it here anyway. Are Elladan and Elrohir, the Sons of Elrond, men or elves? The timeline in the appendix of the book says they were born at the beginning of the Third Age, 3000 years before the Ring was destroyed, and yet they fought in the war. However, the book implied that Legolas was the only elf to travel the Paths of the Dead with Aragorn and the Grey Company, which the Sons of Elrond were a part of.
Question: Sam Raimi always puts his 1973 Oldsmobile Delta Royal in his films, (save one) and I did not spot it in this one. Did anybody else see it?
Question: Does anyone actually know how old wolverine is? When Jean is telling the x-men after his physical, she mentions that he may actually be older than the professor.
Question: What happened to that huge apartment Peter and Harry shared? Now Peter lives in a very small room in a boarding house.
Question: I don't understand what that look Mary Jane has at the end of the movie is all about. Is it something for the next movie, something from the comic books? If they had ended the movie just before that, it would have been a plausible ending, so I'm curious as to why that look was put in there.
Question: Does Peter know that Norman is the Goblin before he takes his helmet off near the end of the movie?
