Question: Is the tea ceremony a real tradition or was it made up for the movie?

Chosen answer: It's real. The tea ceremony was orignally used as a way to relax Samurai who were about to go into battle. It's very complicated and has many rules to remember and the participants are only allowed to speak about the tea itself. The point is to keep the Samurai's mind off the battle as much as possible.

Question: What is the music on which Billy dances when he is auditioning at the end of the film? It doesn't figure on the soundtrack.

Chosen answer: It's called 'I Will Dance' by Stephen Warbeck.

Question: Does anyone experienced in Scuba Diving think Lara's dive profile to the temple is feasible on air without some form of decompression? What would be the atmospheric pressure in the temple?

Chosen answer: The pressure in the temple would be the same as that of the water just before Lara entered the temple. So no she would not need to decompress before entering at the temple as it was open to the sea, but she would have surely suffered the bends on the rapid accent to the surface.

Question: How did that German male die? I would also like to know who made the website.

Chosen answer: The german male died from the hemoraging ebola-like disease that everyone who views the site gets. DOn't know any other way to describe it. As for the who made the website part, I have no idea.

Question: Where did the creepy thin man go after the fight, when they find Knox?

Chosen answer: Somewhere on the DVD they explain he jumped through a gap in the fan you see in that scene and ran off.

Chosen answer: It's from Adam Sandler's film - The Wedding Singer.

Question: Does anyone know all the words to the song Lili sings in the director's cut of the movie, or a place where I can find them?

Chosen answer: Well, I finally found a site that has the lyrics. So I'm going to answer my own question, if anyone else wants to know. http://www.figmentfly.com/legend/question27.html has the words.

Question: Does anyone have the script for "Bend it like Beckham"? (or a link for it)

Chosen answer: http://www.script-o-rama.com/

Chosen answer: It's called Incredible, by M-Beat featuring General Levy.

Question: There is one thing that bothered me at the end of the movie. When the two police investigators are killed and the narrator says that the case is still open why didn't the authorities (police, FBI and so on), descend on that area and try to catch Leatherface? He just killed two police officers among other people and they are just going to leave it as an open case?

Tobin OReilly

Chosen answer: What makes you think they didn't? They obviously just never caught him.

Question: If Rachel is already safe because she copied the tape, why does she still get all the symptoms that the other doomed victims do?

Chosen answer: The main point to remember is, Samara wants to tell her story. Yes, by copying the tape, Rachel's s letting other people know of Samara's story, but the symptoms are probably still there as an extra mean for Samara to show her what she went through. I think this shows that the curse is in full effect for the whole time, and that the copying only prevents the final outcome.

Sereenie

Question: During the film class scene, Mickey states that Stu Macher & Billy Loomis patterned themselves "after two serial killers who have been immortalized on film." Who are these serial killers?

Chosen answer: You're mistaken. Mickey was stating that the person or persons who killed Omar Epps and Jada Pinkett were patterning themselves after Stu and Billy.

Question: What does the appearance of the dove during the Pilate scene mean? Only Jesus saw the dove, does that mean "hope" is coming to him? Is it in the Bible?

Chosen answer: The dove is a symbolic representation of the Holy Spirit. It was God reminding Jesus of His presence through the ordeal. The incident is not in the Bible, but the Bible does say that the Holy Spirit appeared as a dove when Jesus was baptized.

Question: Has the cause of Rex's headaches been explained and does he still have them?

Chosen answer: They haven't mentioned them in a long time. Once they stopped trying to make him look guilty his headaches suddenly disappeared. It may still be explained later as the SK storyline is supposed to not be tied up till early 2005.

Jack's Revenge

Question: I am confused as to the time difference between X-Men and X2. I heard it is 3 weeks and it was 3 years. Some say its 3 years because of Cyclops' new car, but then I realize that it doesn't take Logan 3 years to reach Alkali Lake. So, what is the time difference?

Chosen answer: 3 weeks would be more than enough time to get to Canada and back. Further, we never know for sure if Cyclops had 2 or more cars to start with. Also, as Rogue is only 17-18, she would have changed dramatically in 3 years. 3 weeks, or a similar relatively short period of time, is far more likely.

Grumpy Scot

Question: When Mort shows Ken his bruises, does Ken see them? Later in the movie when Mort is obviously crazy, he can't see his bruises. So, were the bruises his imagination or were the bruises being gone his imagination?

Chosen answer: Mort never shows the bruises to Ken. He plans to when they meet Tom in the morning, but we never see him actually do it. It doesn't matter whether they were there or not (either they were self-inflicted or imaginary), the fact that they appear and disappear shows his altered perception.

Phoenix

Question: Why do Starsky and Hutch come back in the car after visiting Big Earl in the prison when they went to see him at the bar on motorcycles?

Chosen answer: It's entirely possible, since they were not wearing their disguises at the prison, that they had already changed clothes, and therefore, could change vehicles.
