Question: Why would the bullies even do what Zack tells them to do? They could easily beat him.

MikeH

Answer: They might be able to beat him in a fight, but Zack is by far the most popular boy on campus. Fighting him would make them social outcasts. In addition, it is a movie cliche to show bullies exposed as cowards when they are directly confronted by someone with confidence.

Question: Why would Brad go to jail for refusing to rat Donnie out? Doesn't he have the right to remain silent?

MikeH

Answer: If you are referring to a person's Miranda Rights, it does not give someone the right to remain silent indefinitely or to conceal a crime. It is a notification police give to criminal suspects who are in custody, advising them of their right to refuse to answer questions or provide information to law enforcement or other officials during an interrogation. A person can also invoke their Fifth Amendment right while on trial, but that also does not protect them from being convicted of a crime.

Question: Is this the last movie in the Infinity Saga? I always thought Endgame was, but apparently I was wrong. Wouldn't it make more sense for Endgame to be?

MikeH

Answer: All MCU movies from Phase 1 through Phase 3 are considered to be in the Infinity Saga. Avengers: Endgame is considered to be the climax, while this film is considered to be the epilogue.

Question: What happened to Candace and her baby at the end?

Answer: Candace is shot and killed by Tom. Candace's child is not harmed. The real-life inspiration for Candace, Lisa Lambert, was similarly murdered along with Brandon Teena (and another victim, Philip DeVine whom the film omits) with the killers leaving her toddler unharmed.

Answer: It's a little shorter and curlier. The bangs are also a little different. It's hardly surprising since a few months have passed from the end of the school year in HP2 and the start of HP3, just before the new school year begins. All the younger characters have changing hairstyles throughout the series.

Question: What happened to Loki? Does this mean he's now alive?

MikeH

Answer: The Loki from the original timeline is dead, but the 2013 Loki that is imprisoned on Asgard is presumably alive and well, and the 2012 Loki that escaped with the Tesseract is alive and supposedly, this version of the character will be the focus of his own upcoming Disney+ series.

Phaneron Premium member

Answer: The Loki who escaped is in a different timeline, so he will not encounter the "main" versions of the characters. This version of Loki will appear in the new series.

Answer: I think you're thinking of the musical, there's no Girl Scout in the movie. As for the musical, after the girl plays up her heart condition and how a minor shock to her system could kill her, she ironically survives her encounter with Beetlejuice just fine.

Brian Katcher

Answer: He didn't. He took a desperate gamble that he could distract and then emotionally disarm Carl's normal defenses.

Answer: The film leaves it ambiguous...it can be interpreted either way. She may have simply been being paranoid, but the circumstances, and Jimmy's behavior, were very suspicious.

Question: What is the outcome of the game in Oslo, Norway?

Answer: The Americans beat the Soviets. Two days later, the team defeated Finland 4-2 to win the gold medal.

3-3.

Answer: Technically, yes. However, you'd have to be in a (rather flimsy) wooden coffin, which is unlikely, unless you live in the past; you'd have to punch your way out before running out of oxygen, which is also unlikely (even with years of martial arts training that specifically included how to punch a hole in wood at very close range); and you'd have to escape before the roughly 65 cubic feet of dirt on top of you poured into the coffin and suffocated you anyway. Finally, Beatrix definitely gets some help through editing, which you won't have.

Question: What are the names of the three sisters?

Answer: According to Riordan Wiki on Fandom, they are the Grey sisters, Anger (Deino), Tempest (Persis or Perso), and Wasp (Pemphredo). They are the daughters of minor sea gods.

Answer: Several reasons, the Vulture isn't really a super villain, but a man trying to provide for his family after being cheated by the government. He also can make Peter Parker squirm with fear knowing that he's Spider-Man. What will he do with that knowledge.

Question: How is the underage nudity legal? I mean how was it legal to show underage nudity in the movie? How is it not child pornography?

MikeH

Answer: As long as there are no touching or actual physical contact with a child, even simulated sexual act, it is legal.

Answer: The necklace is called "The heart of the Ocean." While in the middle of the ocean, Rose had her heart captured by Jack Dawson. Rose returned the diamond to the ocean in the exact place where her heart was taken by Jack. As she says at one point, "A woman's heart is a deep ocean of secrets"

Ssiscool Premium member

Answer: She basically gave it back to the ship. It was a symbolic gesture towards Jack as basically he died because of it.

lionhead

Answer: They wouldn't in real life. This was a plot contrivance.

raywest Premium member

Answer: There could be a serious major event happening nearby where all the resources needed to be sent ASAP. The 911 operator had to prioritize and assumed the current caller's emergency - whatever it was - was less urgent. There could have been a shortage of operators for whatever reason.
