Question: Thomas knew about being tagged. Why didn't he (and the others) have it removed earlier? It didn't appear to be that delicate or complicated a procedure to have it removed. Am I missing something?

Answer: They were too busy to have it removed.

Question: Where does Hans get the Post-it note at the end to put on the tape recorder?

Answer: Billy brought an odd selection of items with him, including labels for the guns. It wouldn't be surprising for him to have also brought Post-It notes. Hans could have easily taken one so he could leave the tape for Marty.

Question: Who was the hooded person who shot at the women with the shotgun?

Answer: Florentino, the Mexican member of the Cowboys played by Paul Ben-Victor. Earlier a brief close up of him is seen as he is stalking the Earps and, though only seen briefly as he shoots at the women, his mustache is quite easily recognizable if you pause the movie.

Question: Why did it matter so much to Ali's father that Daniel's from Reseda?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: Ali and her family are very well off and are from a nicer part of town. Reseda is a lower income area. It's a typical "wrong side of the tracks" situation. Ali's parents would be happier if their daughter dated someone more well off. The theme of "never judge a book by the cover" permeates throughout the film and this is one of several examples. Daniel is a kind, caring, honorable young man and where he lives has nothing at all to do with his character. Johnny, who Ali's parents are more approving of because of his social status, is controlling, manipulative, petulant, and violent.

Answer: Ali's family is well off living in an affluent neighborhood, while Reseda is a lower income level section of town. Her parents are judging Daniel based on where he lives, and don't want their daughter going out with a person they feel is socially "under them."

Question: Why wasn't Christine ever told by the devil worshipers who raised her that she was the devil's wife?

Ashley Rose-Anna Perez

Answer: She wasn't exactly fond of the fact when she learned the truth. Telling her before then could ruin Satan's plan, i.e. the revelation could cause her to commit suicide years before the ordained time or she could flee to where they may never find her.

Question: What happened to Beth's boyfriend? Was he too on Krampus' naughty list?

Answer: Since it's never shown, it's only speculation that if he lost his Christmas spirit, he was killed. If not, he's alive.

Answer: Since Denise is never seen or heard by any of the other characters; since Phoebe abruptly stops mentioning her immediately after this episode; and since Phoebe is, to put it gently, a little weird, I think we can safely assume that yes, Denise was made up.

However Phoebe is also known to come out with random things that seem impossible but is true.

Question: When Mantis keeps the wolf from firing the weapon, he shouts, "Fear the bug!" Is it some kind of a parody?

Bunch Son

Chosen answer: No, it is merely a joke about the size of Mantis and his surprising fighting prowess. "Fear the..." is a somewhat common joke. For example, the University of Maryland uses the unofficial slogan "Fear the turtle!"; the Milwaukee Bucks use the slogan "Fear the deer", etc.

Question: The opening scene, as well as several others, shows Kaiju skeletons lying on the beach. In the first film, Kaiju bone power was $500 an ounce, used as a aphrodisiac. If that is the case, why is there 10s of millions of dollars just lying on the beach deteriorating?

Answer: The film never addresses this, and in fact the kaiju black market is never even mentioned. Any answer would be speculation. You could argue that it has been a decade since the events of the previous film and in that time the kaiju black market could have collapsed for any number of reasons (lack of demand, procurement costs, government regulation, etc). We must also consider that the writers were not concerned with consistency between this film and the previous film. Since Hannibal Chau does not appear in this film, nor is he mentioned, the idea of a lucrative kaiju black market appears to have been dropped. Since this film focuses instead on a jaeger black market, it might have been a conscious decision by the film-makers to ignore Hannibal Chau in this film to avoid confusing new viewers who didn't see the original film.

Question: Whatever happened to Ash's chainsaw? Surely he wouldn't be such an idiot to leave it in the shack where he made sushi out of Bad Ash.

Answer: It most likely ran out of gas or broke down.

Question: Lisbeth uses a taser on Niedermann, who is suffering from congenital analgesia. Should the shock make him collapse?

Question: When the U-boat is at 200 meters depth, and even deeper, it is attacked with depth charges. We can see the charges explode close to the hull. Was it really possible to set charges to explode at this depth? In 1943 the US developed depth charges that could be set to 180 meters.

Dan Agardh

Answer: The Royal Navy Depth Charge Mark VII could be detonated as deep as 270 meters, this is after 1940 but before 1943. This is below the crushing depth of the Type viic U-boat from the movie.

Question: What are the silver pins on Dinero's shoulders on his dress uniform?

Lt3097

Answer: Dinero is a US army ranger sporting the special forces identification badge on his shoulders. There are many inconsistencies in the uniform though.

Question: Are we to assume Tito dies from his gunshot wound?

Answer: I don't think so, a gunshot wound to the thigh is hardly fatal unless you hit a major artery.

lionhead

And if you do hit an artery you don't have very long to live.

Question: Why does the gravedigger try to kill Van Helsing?

Answer: Because he has a developed a bad habit from dealing with dead bodies too long and now has some sort of urge to fill coffins and bury them, even if he has to do it himself.

lionhead

Question: Why didn't Roadkill the armadillo die by getting run over, and how did he put himself back together?

Answer: The movie is supposed to be surreal. There is no explanation given.
