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: What are the two muscle cars used in the film?

Answer: The blue car with the white stripes is a 1969 Chevy Camero with a yanko engine. The orange one is a Dodge Hemi Challenger.

Question: What's the car they 'hijack' from Dan Marino?

Answer: It's a Cadillac CTS.

Question: What happened to Josh Hartnett's character after H2O? They never mentioned him in Halloween 8.

Answer: We do not know what has become of him. Most likely he is just attending college, and Michael has yet to find him.

He got killed by Michael because the clown mentioned that he killed 4 students that attended Hillcrest Academy. But I don't know.

Answer: I read somewhere that he changed his name to Zeke, or something. Relocated to Ohio, or somewhere. And started dealing drugs at a high school. He also had a thing with his English teacher, she bore a startling resemblance to a Bond henchwoman. He didn't seem to be dating Molly.

Alan Keddie

Question: What are the drummer and Anna/Tess saying to each other during the band audition? I've watched it a lot, and i can never get the part where Anna has a short monologue.

Answer: Drummer: "what are you doing?" Anna/Tess: "I don't know, it's not working." Drummer: "Just do it".

Question: Why wasn't Dale arrested after he hit the officer's sister and beat up two other people?

kurt hudson

Chosen answer: If she arrested Dale, her sister (Dale's gf) would be upset. But mostly, it's a small town where they all know each other, and that's just how things work.

Answer: Plus The sister would have denied it. She said she fell down and just like Kurt added it's a small town plus he already had people on his side when he jumped on the family at the dinner. Plus his girlfriend jumped in mom face because Dale was mad at husband.

Question: Why did they use some different actors in this film? Both Pyro and Shadowcat are completely different, both are very noticeable in X1, Pyro is blonde and Shadowcat is a red-head.

Answer: In the first there roles were small, so they likely just cast the people who would take the part for the lowest salary. In the second, they needed people who could actually act.

Question: In Sofia Coppola's photo gallery on IMDB, there are three photos showing her in the press room at the DGA Awards holding what looks like a DGA Award in her arms. Since she didn't win this particular award, why does she have a photo of herself with one.

Answer: That is not the DGA Award - that is the DGA Nomination Medal - all the nominees get one.

Question: Does anyone know the name of the song that is playing when Jamie Presley is walking down the hall with her friends.

Answer: The song is called "Yoo Hoo" by Imperial Teen. The same song plays in Jawbreaker when Rose McGowan is leading her friends down the hall, which is of course, the scene that Not Another Teen Movie is mimicking.

Question: What kind of car do Trinity and the other two pick up Neo in under the bridge when it is raining at the beginning of the movie? It's the black car where they remove the probe from Neo.

iceverything776

Chosen answer: It's a Lincoln Continental from the 60's. The topless version was the one JFK was assassinated in.

Doppelganger - S1-E5

Question: When discussing the bomb plot, there's something odd with the audio. When Sloane's talking, at two points he says "UCO", but it's obviously been dubbed over - the shot's from behind but the tone is different. Arguably just post-production looping, but because the pitch is so noticeably different I'm assuming they mentioned some organisation they couldn't refer to, so changed it. Can't be the UN, as they mention that earlier in the scene. Anyone know why that was changed? (00:35:05)

Jon Sandys Premium member

Chosen answer: It does sound overdubbed, but there was no change in the organization. UCO is United Commission Organization. There are signs when Patel is coming that say UCO so obviously it wasn't changed.

Question: It was revealed at the end what Rachel Weiss and John Cusack had planned all along, why did they ask Dustin Hoffman for 10 million? They never intended for him to lose, they were out to get Gene Hackman and the gun makers.

fan before the site

Chosen answer: Hackman's team was closely monitoring what Hoffman was doing in regards to the tampering, as evidenced by their taping of his conversation with Weiss when he decides not to pay. Cusack and Weiss probably anticipated this so were forced to offer the deal to Hoffman to keep up the illusion.

Question: Once Austin has introduced himself to the two models, and they start photographing, what is the music that is in the background?

Answer: The music is the theme song to the TV show "Charlie's Angels".

Question: Can anyone tell what brand the black and white hat that Will Smith is wearing when they are waiting for the Dixie 7?

Answer: A german movie magazine wrote that this hat has no brand. It was made especially for the movie by the costume designer. The label on it is merely blank. A reader asked the same question at the magazine's forum.

Question: I know that some aspects of the movie were altered from the source materials because of copyright issues and various other reasons (i.e. having Skinner as the Invisible Man instead of Griffith.) Were there any such reasons given for changing the nature of Dorian's portrait from Wilde's novel, or was that just altered to make his death scene more "dramatic?"

Answer: I haven't read this book of Wilde, but I think alterations were prompted not by copyright issues but because this conveniences the "league" storyline.

Question: When the people are on the boat ride, can anyone tell me what the things in the pictures on the walls are?

Answer: I don't know every detail but I do know that there is a spider, a chicken being beheaded, Wonka's rival Slugworth, an eyeball, a giant centipede crawling across a man's face, and a chameleon eating a bug.

Odd Jobs / Movie Magic - S3-E2

Question: At the end of Movie Magic, Trixie and the 2 boys that were with her (who said they made their movie because they were bored) said that comedy is the lowest form of entertainment next to animation. What are all the forms of entertainment, and please put them in order from lowest to highest or vice versa?

Answer: It's a joke. One cannot list all forms of entertainment. The list would never end. The boys were trying to convey how superior they were to the others, by saying that they were too good for comedy.

Question: why don't Red's parents come back for him, even when he becomes famous?

Answer: They probably do, it just isn't shown. Alternatively, they could have died in-between the time we see the young Red and Tobey Maguire. That could be a contributor to all his anger and rage.

Show generally

Question: Is there any significance behind the song "England's Mountains Green" (or whatever it's called)? It seems to be the only song anyone ever sings, outside of sketch-specific songs (like the Lumberjack Song).

Xofer

Chosen answer: The song you talk of was originally a poem by William Blake called 'Jerusalem'. It speaks of the possibility of Jesus having visited England. The poem has four verses but you only ever hear the Monty Python boys sing the first one which goes, "And did those feet in ancient time/Walk upon England's mountains green/And was the holy Lamb of God/On England's pleasant pastures seen?" If there's any sort of in-joke connected to it's use, I'm not aware of it. It seemed to just be the standard song/hymn they used when a song was needed that wasn't sketch specific. Some of the sketches it appeared in were 'Salvation Fuzz/Church Police', 'Buying a Bed' and 'The Art Gallery Sketch'. Something that may be relevant, though, is that the only one who was present every time it was sung was Eric Idle. Perhaps he just liked it?

Question: What type of horse did they use to play Brego?

Answer: Brego's real name is Uraeus. He is a warmblood stallion, a former FEI dressage horse, and is currently owned by Viggo Mortensen.

Show generally

Question: Why doesn't Jarod just go to the FBI or police and say, "Hey, these people kidnapped me as a child and are trying to rekidnap me, please arrest them". After what he's been through I cannot think of any reason for him to protect them. Also, why, when he's pretending to be a doctor or some government official, does he run when Parker or Sam or whomever come to get him? If he's in a hospital do you really think they could just drag him out at gunpoint unnoticed? It can't be that The Centre had infiltrated all of these government agencies to such a high level, or how could Jarod continually pretend to be FBI, ATF, Justice Department and military personnel without being caught? Many times he actually worked in the offices of these organizations.

Charles Fraser

Chosen answer: Well, there ARE people at the Center he wants to protect: Ms. Parker, Sydney, and Broots. Plus, people with influence like the Triumvirate has could stymie any investigation. And telling the FBI would necessitate revealing who and what he is to them, and he might be afraid that the Federal government would treat him as a guinea pig/resource like the Center did. Presumably, when the Center sends out Sweepers, they're "disguised" as law enforcement officials, with official-enough looking credentials to fool the casual onlooker. And just because the Center might have influence in government doesn't mean they necessarily have actual agents present everywhere. Perhaps Jared, in his Pretends, has made sure he's "under the radar." Besides, Jared doesn't KNOW how far up Center influence goes - after all, he wouldn't still be searching for "the truth" if he knew everything about the Center and its influence, would he?
