Question: So what exactly is cabin fever? Like I get that it's a virus... But what does it do? I know it's referred to as a "skin eating virus" but what exactly is it? What exactly does it do? Does it kill you? Just what is it and where did it come from?
Question: There are two scenes I don't understand 1. Burnett goes through a minefield, and then one of the enemy troops accidentally sets the mines off, Burnett starts running through the minefield, and much of the exposing debris. 2. Burnett is in a shop which is fired on. He appears to be close to a shell impact. If one of these scenarios were to happen as shown in the movie, wouldn't Burnett have been seriously injured if not dead?
Question: It's explained that Hoffman wanted to be the hero and that he expected that no one would make it out alive in the building after Rigg's game. How in the world could he have expected or even decided this? He had no control over others who won their game in the building, so therefore how on earth could he predict that Strahm would kill Jeff in the previous film? And was the water cube intended to kill Strahm as he was warned not to proceed?
Question: When the dog is drugged and almost dies, why does Patrick ask for a bunt cake? And why a bunt cake specifically? Do bunt cakes have anything to do with overdosing?
Question: When Dom finds Vince with the chip, the conversation concludes with Vince basically saying how all of them have been negatively affected by everything that has happened and he sarcastically asks Dom where Letty is. How would he have found out about Letty if he was on the run since the events of the first film? Earlier in the film he tells Brian and Mia about his misfortunes and how he ended up in Rio.
Question: In a video on youtube called the Hunger Games deleted scenes never before seen part 2, Katniss mentions Prim to Rue and then Rue asks "is she the one who..." but can someone tell me what she was saying before Katniss interrupts her? Also why does Katniss interrupt her so rudely? Finally Katniss mentions something that her and Prim used to do together but what did she say?THE GAMER NEXT DOOR
Question: I realised a couple problems with Carson's plan. I understand that he murdered her husband by pushing him off the roof so he could hide the explosives in the casket, and that once Kyle and Julia boarded the plane and fell asleep, he could kidnap Julia, and Kyle would have a reason to open the casket. The first thing I don't understand is how did he get Kyle's husband to come onto the roof? What if a different person came onto the roof instead? Or what if multiple people came onto the roof? The second thing I don't understand is how did he know Kyle would decide to leave Germany and bury her husband's body in New York? What if she decided to store her husband's body somewhere and deal with it later? Or what if she decided to bury it in Germany instead?
Question: When Merlin stepped on the land mine, why didn't he just wait there until Eggsy and Harry completed the mission? Surely he could have just stood there, then later on they could have called in bomb experts or use Statesman resources to get him off that thing? Eggsy and Harry could have easily taken out those 5 guards.
Question: How come the terrorists' knives were not noticed? Airports have metal detectors designed to detect knives.
Question: Why do authorities think Vidrine was not the true villain on deep water horizon? He is the one who brushed off safety concerns, and ordered a second negative pressure test. And according to the investigators, an employee who perished in the disaster was responsible for the bladder effect hypothesis not Vidrine. Even if it was true, how would it make him the villain? They are treating who the true villain was like it has to do with who was responsible for the bladder effect hypothesis, and not for brushing off safety concerns, and ordering the second pressure test. Plus it could still have been Vidrine's fault, given that also say the cause of the explosion was years of small mistakes, those mistakes could have been Vidrine's mistakes along with his decision to order a second pressure test instead asking the employees what they wanted to do, Especially since they knew the rig, and he didn't.
Question: This has bothered me since the first time I saw Love Never Dies. The dates for Christine's death don't line up, so I'm hoping for some insight as to why. On Christine's grave stone in Phantom, the dates 1854-1917 are given. Making her about 63 when she dies. However, if it's 1880 at the time she sings "think of me" that makes her 16... and then in Love Never Dies, her and Eric are saying how it's been "10 long years." Making her 26. But then she's shot and presumably dies, in 1890 rather than 27 years later in 1917. Even if there's a couple years in between the ending of this movie and the point that Christine last sees the phantom, that is a lot of time to fill up! So... am I missing something? Or is this a big plot hole?
