Answered questions about specific movies, TV shows and more
These are questions relating to specific titles. General questions for movies and TV shows are here. Members get e-mailed when any of their questions are answered.
Question: I was just wondering, why isn't Jean violent? The psychic said that all the ghosts are violent because they died a violent death and that's why Cyrus wanted them, so why is she the only one who isn't violent?
Question: People are saying that Neo is dead. But the Oracle said to Sati 'it is likely that we will see him one day'. Is she talking about the next version of the Matrix? I feel kind of sad about the ending, I wanted a happy ending, not a horrible sad ending.
Question: Can anyone tell me why switch wears white clothes when inside the matrix when all the other rebels wear black? Is there a back story to this?
Question: I want to know: after the curse has been lifted, we see Barbossa's crew surrendering to Norrington's crew. Some of them collapse. My friend tells me this is because these pirates have been 'killed' or stabbed many times before, and once they are human, they therefore die. My question is: Is this true; and if so, why does this not happen to Jack, who was stabbed with Barbossa's sword when he became cursed?
Question: What are the differences (specific scenes/shots) in the Japanese version of the movie that were left out or changed in the American release?
Question: The guy who played Livingston (surveillance) in Ocean's Eleven gives Jack a sandwich which is the 'Cadillac of all bolognas'. It doesn't really fit with the rest of the film and has no significance, the character isn't even credited so why is it shown?
Question: When Anderton, after his eye surgery, has his dream about the day he lost his son, look carefully at the people shown at poolside after Anderton discovers that his son is gone. For about a second, the camera follows a suspicious-looking man wearing a fairly wide-brimmed hat, and a towel around his shoulders. While we see this man, the video suddenly becomes "choppy," as though something significant were happening. The camera also zooms in toward his face. This all happens in about one second. Are we to assume that this is the man responsible for kidnapping Anderton's son?Matty Blast
Question: I really don't get the whole five point exploding heart thing. How does that work? I know it's not supposed to be realistic. But if your heart really explodes after five steps, could you not just stand still? Or get a wheelchair? Can anyone explain what it's supposed to do, its origins (or just Tarantino's reason behind it) and if it is logical in any way?
Question: I'm slightly confused about the naked couple and their role in movie making. Are they the nude scene body double stand-ins for the actual actors, or are they there to prepare lighting and camera angles before the real actors come in and film the scene?
