Question: After Rose rescues Jack from below decks, they run past Mr. Andrews, who's standing in front of a fireplace, leaning in towards it. What room is he in? It looks like the First Class Lounge, which deck plans show has a fireplace but it's towards the forward end of the ship, which means Mr. Andrews should have been leaning away from the fireplace since the incline was towards aft. I haven't been able to locate an answer to this.

Chosen answer: It's the First Class smoke room, which has the ship's only functional fireplace facing the fore. As the ship's fore (front) is pointing down into the water, Andrews is standing at a tilt against the incline, so his stance is tilted towards the ship's aft and therefore he is leaning against the fireplace.

Question: Was the waitress at the end meant to be Kira, or just someone who looked like her?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: It's implied that it could be her, but there's no definitive answer as to whether or not it is. It's deliberately left to the audience's interpretation.

Question: Here's something I'm confused about, and I've only seen this movie twice now; Why didn't Dr. Schultz shake Candie's hand to seal the deal? Also, why was Stephen, and Django himself, so disrespectful to their own kind? I know Stephen was "raised" by white folk but Django? His comment to the doctor doesn't make much sense. I hope I explained these enough; I'm just a little confused about all this.

Chosen answer: Dr. Schultz's pride coupled with his disdain for Candie wouldn't allow him to shake his hand. Stephen is unfortunately completely subservient to his white master, and is what is known to be an "Uncle Tom." Django's behavior towards fellow blacks is just a front he's putting on in order to get into Candie's good graces so he can rescue his wife.

Question: What did the girl with super speed mean by where is Magneto's "mark" if he is so proud of being a mutant?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: She was part of a group of mutants that called themselves "The Omegas" and accordingly they got tattoos of the omega symbol as a mark of pride.

Question: Was it the decision of the directors to have Ghost Rider killing people rather than using the Penance Stare like in the first movie. I found it odd that Johnny stated that the Ghost Rider would go after anybody such as people who tell little white lies.

Chosen answer: The entire film was designed to have a different tone and feel from the first film, to be accessible to viewers who never saw the original. Thus this film exists as something of a soft reboot. In interviews the directors also stated the origin story for Ghost Rider never made sense to them and they wished to change aspects of the character for this film. That includes removing the Penance Stare and making Ghost Rider have an uncontrollable desire to feed on the wrong people have committed, even things like little white lies could set him off.

Question: Early in the film, Rawhead Rex kills a farmer, but the farmer's pregnant wife gets Rex's attention and he goes toward the house. She runs upstairs to hide but the monster follows, cornering her in the bedroom. He reaches out to her, but then relents and spares her for some reason. The movie never really explains why. Can anyone explain why he let her live?

dewinela

Chosen answer: Pregnant woman (and possibly women on their periods) are his weakness and the only thing he fears.

Question: Why did Winthrope try another exchange of suitcase (on the train, with Bleeks) and got caught, when Valentine already made such an attempt before and was successful in it?

manubhatt3@gmail.com

Chosen answer: They had to make sure what the crop report said before they could put a fake report in so they can fool the Dukes. Basically Valentine got the case and gave it to Winthorpe. Whinthorpe removed the crop report and replaced it with a fake one. Then he had to get the fake to Bleeks.

Question: How exactly is the level of Jedi knight different to padawan learner apart from having a padawan of their own?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: A padawan is an apprentice Jedi. They are still learning and haven't mastered the skills needed to go out on their own. Once a padawan has passed the trials, a series of tests designed to test the Jedi against what they will face in the universe, they can receive a promotion to knight. Knights are able to be sent out on missions alone. Padawans are not.

Question: When Vanellope throws the medal into the cup, it registers her name. Since the medal was actually Ralph's, shouldn't his name have appeared on the board?

Chosen answer: The coin is simply the required payment to enter the race. The person throwing it is the entrant.

Question: Is Lor San Tekka a Jedi?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: According to the Star Wars Wiki, he is not. He is a member of the Church of the Force and believes in the ideals of the Jedi order despite not being force sensitive himself. http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Lor_San_Tekka.

Question: Pierce asked Cap if Fury told Cap that Fury was the one who bugged it, but what did Fury bug?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: They were talking about the apartment Steve Rogers lives in. Pierce is saying Nick Fury bugged Cap's apartment, one of his own agents.

Question: From the end subplot, it seems that while the primary motivation for Jack Sparrow was the capture of Black Pearl, he did have a favourable view of Will (his father has tacitly supported Jack) and Elizabeth. Also, it seems that his aim was also to take revenge from Barbossa. In light of the above fact, I don't understand what was his plan when he first went to Barbossa and the pirates, with Will (when he was made unconscious by Will). And when he tries bargaining with Barbossa about leaving him on an island, while taking the Black Pearl with him. Did he really plan to turn Will in, at those points? If not, and if he is a good guy in support of Will, then what was his plan all along?

manubhatt3@gmail.com

Chosen answer: His initial plan was to use Will as a bargaining chip in exchange for the Pearl since Will could lift the curse of the pirates. He needed that curse lifted as he wanted to kill Barbossa. That failed when Will found out and knocked him unconscious and he was captured. Having lost his bargaining chip he is just out to stay alive again and try a different way of getting the pearl and his revenge. Yes he really did plan to turn Will in, Jack is not a good person.

Question: After the council decides to not train Anakin and Qui-Gon decided to train Anakin himself why does Obi-Wan look like he was betrayed?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: Obi-Wan didn't feel betrayed, he was dismayed at Qui Gon once again openly defying the word of the council. The two disagree on Anakin and Kenobi feels that were Qui Gon to simply follow the rules, he would have been on the council by now.

BaconIsMyBFF

Question: I read that Qui-Gon was never offered a seat on the council but why? He seems old enough.

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: Obi-Wan implies Qui Gon's idealism and rebellious nature keep him from being offered a seat on the council. Kenobi specifically brings this up when Qui Gon states that he will defy the council and train Anakin himself. Apparently not following orders is somewhat common for Qui Gon.

Question: Is it ever stated or hinted at which branch of the military Russell Casse flew for in Vietnam?

Chosen answer: It is never stated or hinted.

Question: The curse can be lifted by using the blood of only the individual who removed a gold coin. Shouldn't Will have been exempt from this rule? He never took a gold coin from the chest. His dad did so only Bootstrap's blood should have worked. Also, since only the individual's blood can remove the curse, why did the rule suddenly change to needing Will's blood if he never removed a coin from the chest?

Chosen answer: The movie explains, very explicitly, that the blood of a direct descendant of one of the pirates will do as well as the blood of the pirate himself, so Will's blood, being "the blood of his father", works. The "rule" did not suddenly change, it was the same from beginning to end.

Question: Why couldn't Anakin's hair grow back after being put in the life support suit?

Chosen answer: He suffered third degree burns over most of his body, completely destroying the hair follicles on his head, thus it is impossible for him to regrow hair. This is common in severe burn victims.

Question: Why did Qui-Gon not contact Yoda before the Jedi were as good as extinct?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: Yoda states that Qui Gon "recently" learned how to contact him. Presumably he had not learned the skill in time.

Question: Does Palpatine knows that Anakin Skywalker is the Chosen One?

legolas

Chosen answer: He certainly knows that the Jedi believe Anakin to be the Chosen One. Whether he believes the prophecy himself is unknown, however he likely does not. He holds Vader in no higher regard than any of his other apprentices and is ready to replace him with Luke without a moment's pause after the two fight in Return of the Jedi.

Question: Why did Magneto need his old helmet if Apocalypse can shield minds from Charles' telepathy?
