Question: Is there a reason why Tom Hagen "can't give a straight answer anymore," in all of his conversations with Michael?

Chosen answer: Michael only wants people to tell him what he wants to hear, rather than giving truthful advice, which sometimes makes him angry. Tom often has to skirt around issues to get his point across, otherwise Michael will react negatively, or even retaliate in some way. Michael expects Tom's complete loyalty even though he had demoted Tom from being Consigliori. An element of trust and understanding was lost between them.

Question: In terms of martial arts, what film did Keanu Reeves practice more for? John Wick 1 and 2 or The Matrix trilogy?

Question: At the start of the movie, Connie hates Michael. Was it just the death of their mother that made her change her feelings towards Michael? Or were there other factors?

Answer: Connie always hated Michael for ordering the death of Carlo (unaware that he was responsible for Sonny's murder) however she puts away her hatred to get Michael and Fredo to make up.

Connie didn't hate Michael. In the book, she was initially upset and angry that he had Carlo killed and confronted him, but within a few days, she apologized, telling Kay, Michael's wife, that it was all a mistake. Carlo was a physically abusive husband who never loved Connie and only married her because she was Don Corleone's daughter. Connie quickly realised she was far happier and much better off without Carlo.

Chosen answer: Connie never hated Michael. Their relationship became strained because he disapproved of her jet-set, life-style, she was neglecting her children, and he dislikes the men she has relationships with. She is dependent on her brother for money and resents having to beg for more. She changes somewhat towards the end of the movie, partially because of her mother's death and Fredo being killed, and after Michael so cruelly cut Kay out of his life. Gradually, Connie starts to become more like Michael and by the third film, takes a more active role in the family business.

Answer: I wasn't counting every single one, but I'd say around 100-140.

Question: When Harry returns with Cedric's body, and the students are in the stands, shocked and saddened, who is the girl standing to Neville's right? Pretty girl with long strawberry blonde hair and bangs. My husband thinks it's Susan Bones.

Chosen answer: The girl is not identified. If it is Susan Bones, it's a different actress playing her. Eleanor Columbus, daughter of director/producer Chris Columbus, played Susan Bones in the first two Harry Potter films. The Susan Bones character is not in the cast listing on IMDB for HP and the Goblet of Fire. This looks like Hannah Abbott, who was played by Charlotte Skeoch.

Question: When the baby pulls Manny's nose hairs out, there were white things at the ends. Not to sound gross but I've done it in my nostrils and my armpits, and I wanted to ask what those white ends are?

Chosen answer: The roots, most likely. In hair follicles, it's where one's DNA coding is stored.

Darth Crucible

Chosen answer: It was because she had used so many fake I.D. the F.B.I. had become suspicious, possibly believing she was involved in some type of criminal activity, which is often why people assume different identities.

Question: When Ashe tries to get to Judah's home, he makes his way through a celebration celebrating the dead. While making his way through, he appears frightened. Why would he be scared?

dewinela

Chosen answer: Because the whole coming back from the dead experience is strange, mysterious and scary for him. He had no idea who or what called him back. Is he the only one or was there a whole world of supernatural creatures.

Question: In a movie where a person is waterboarded, is the actor literally waterboarded? Or is there a type of trick or method that directors use?

Chosen answer: Some water might have been used, but actually waterboarding an actor would be a safety hazard. Most likely some special effects are involved.

dewinela

Answer: Ed's death.

Question: Why did Bob have the snakes? Is it linked to the snakes that scared Alex as a child or is it just a coincidence? If they are supposed to protect the evidence in the crates, they wouldn't be in plain sight.

ricardoglez22

Chosen answer: In the film it is just a coincidence. However, the snakes tie into the rest of the religious and mythological imagery present in the film.

Question: After the healing of Theoden from the spell of Saruman, Why didn't Aragorn Let Theoden kill Grima?

DFirst1

Chosen answer: Théoden was intent on killing Grima out of revenge for what he had done. Since Aragorn is a very noble man, he would have felt that Théoden killing Grima for that reason would not have been a noble decision, especially for a king, to make.

Chosen answer: The tear rolling down his cheek is the result of his overwhelming awe at the sheer size of Saruman's army.

Phixius Premium member

Question: Why did they let Professor Poopypants get away?

Chosen answer: They never would have found him after CU slapped him far away. Plus Harold destroyed the shrink/grow machine so PP ended up permanently small, meaning someone could easily squish him if he tried anything evil again.
