Question: When Belle shows the villagers Beast in the Magic Mirror, why does it show him roaring like a monster?

JohnShel91

Chosen answer: Roaring is the Beast's way of crying in despair. He does the same thing right after he releases Belle from the castle because not only does he know that he'll never become human again but he's had to let go of the one woman he truly loves, therefore he's crying out.

Question: Who found the first treasure?

Chosen answer: There was no treasure - it was a fake room in case anyone got that far, without a way to get into the real treasure room.

Question: At the beginning, what caused McQueen's rear tires to burst?

Roman Curiel

Chosen answer: Blown tires are common in NASCAR and usually the result of exactly what McQueen did, run too long, too fast, on old tires. They show him not taking new tires during the yellow caution, and then all the green pit stops, he only took gas. Excess heat from high speed driving can increase a tire's pressure, and with "old" tires, it couldn't handle the stress.

Question: How could Brahms speak with a child's voice? He must be 28 years old. Don't you think that the voice sounded too much like a little boy for a man to mimic?

Bunch Son

Chosen answer: His voice box was damaged in the fire making his voice sound like that.

Question: What happened to Psylocke after the movie? Would you say this indicates an appearance in another upcoming X-Men film?

Chosen answer: Psylocke is purposefully shown literally just walking away after the dust has settled. She could very well show up in another film somewhere along the line but nothing has been confirmed as of yet.

Question: 3 questions: Was the planet Krennic goes to to talk to Vader supposed to be Mustafar? If so, why would Vader want to go there of all places? Lastly, what was the reason Krennic went to visit Vader?

Chosen answer: Yes, Pablo Hidalgo from the Lucasfilm Story Group confirmed Vader's palace was on Mustafar. Gary Whitta who wrote the story, suggested that he lived there because "he wants to punish himself" for turning to the dark side. Krennic visits Vader because he wants him to arrange a personal audience with the Emperor and cut Tarkin out of the equation.

Question: Spencer wasn't bitten. He died by knifing, but he turned into a walker. I thought you had to be bitten?

Chosen answer: It's been established that everyone is infected with the zombie virus, albeit in a dormant state, so that when anyone dies, by whatever means, the virus turns the dead into zombies (walkers). Being bitten or scratched injects live viruses into the system that quickly turns a living person into a zombie, without having to die first.

Francis Escapes - S1-E7

Question: Malcolm keeps giving Francis the phone number to call his girlfriend but why does he need it to call her?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Question: I have 3 questions. 1. How come Katniss wanted Mags as an ally? 2. Why didn't she want Finnick as an ally? 3. Plutarch said half the tributes were in on getting Katniss out of the quarter quell. Is it known what tributes were in on it?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: 1, She chose Mags because she liked her and wanted to protect her as much as possible. 2. Katniss didn't trust Finnick. She didn't know he was one of her allies. 3. Not all of the Tributes who are allies are named.

It's Hard to Say Goodbye If You Won't Leave - S3-E10

Question: In this episode, Frasier is portrayed as being allergic to cats, and cannot be close to Kate's cat. What about the times when he had sex with Kate (at the radio station building, in the elevator in his building, etc.)? As a cat-owner, shouldn't her clothes have set off his allergies before?

Chosen answer: Not necessarily. Cat allergies aren't caused by the cat's fur (so if she has cat fur on her clothes, it wouldn't actually bother his allergies). It's the cat's dander (dry skin flakes), saliva, and/or urine that people are allergic to, so if her clothes don't have traces of any of that, he would be fine. For example, she could have clothes at work she changes into, or simply keeps her clothes in a room the cat isn't around.

Bishop73

Answer: But this is complicated by the episode where Frasier cat sits for a friend.

If there is an episode where he cat sits, it may be worthy of a character mistake entry. Although, only if we see him come in contact with the cat somehow without his allergies acting up. Otherwise someone may submit a correction, such as just because he's allergic to cats doesn't mean he won't do a favor for someone and just deal with his allergies, etc.

Question: How much time is it from 12 midnight to the twelfth stroke of midnight? Because in the movie it seemed to go over way longer than 12 seconds.

James Brown

Chosen answer: Clocks vary, but it's not always 1-second per stroke. Some clocks can take up to a minute to fully strike 12.

Question: Mia's car is towed because of a parking restriction between 9:00pm and 6:00am. Is there anywhere in LA that has such a restriction?

Chosen answer: Across various places in LA there are parking restrictions that match this criteria. A quick Google search will find a list of places.

Question: I may have missed this, but early in the film, how did Mia and Sebastian get into the empty planetarium? It must have been locked up pretty tight. Did someone let them in? Did they break in? I'm guessing this was explained and I didn't catch it.

Michael Albert

Chosen answer: The answer is, "It's a movie." They wouldn't have been able to drive up to the entrance either. The entire sequence is fantasy-driven.

Question: I am confused as to what really happened. Was the entire series of movies a fantasy of Reggie's like Mike said it was? Was the planet taken over by the Tall Man like the other reality showed? Or are we left to our own imagination on which reality was real and which was not?

lartaker1975

Chosen answer: This film is infamous for its confusing to follow narrative, owed to the fact it was originally intended as a series of shorts rather than a linear structure. As it stands it is up to the viewer to decide, however the post credits scene seems to suggest one world is real as Reggie plays no part in the scene.

Question: How is Emma sitting on the horse and cart when she is lighter than air? I have watched the movie a few times and cannot see anything like a belt around her waist, but any other time she is sitting, she has been seen buckled down.

oncerella

Chosen answer: At several points throughout the film, there are instances where her powers of air are used only as a plot device, so the extent of her powers is somewhat unknown. Therefore, it is possible she is able to make herself sit on the cart without floating, but other times isn't.

Amina Thommesen-Kähler

Answer: This is a movie mistake because when she's at dinner, she has to wear a buckle to hold her down. And I don't see why she wouldn't be wearing one on the carriage too.

Question: After the clones were discovered, Palpatine used the Separatist-Republic tension as a excuse to take control of them, but was the Separatist movement real? He could've faked it from the beginning just to take the clones out himself knowing that he would have power because of the senate. Or was the movement real at first, and he later used it to take control of the clones? The attempt on Padmé's life (which caused the Kamino reveal) besides being the price that the Viceroy requested to enter the Separatists I suppose, was to provoke the war, what do they achieve then, if they didn't know the clones would be discovered?

ricardoglez22

Chosen answer: Palpatine was playing both sides. As Sidious he was controlling and helping the separatists (which sprung from the actions of the trade federation) and as Palpatine he was defending the Republic. Both sides did not know they were being played and both sides thought their cause was "real".

Question: If Sifo Dyas was really the one that ordered the clone army, why would Obi Wan and possibly other people think he died before?

ricardoglez22

Chosen answer: Because he had. Sifo-Dyas was a Jedi Master with the power of foresight who'd foreseen a galactic war breaking out and secretly ordered production of the clone army 10 years before the events of the film. Count Dooku had him killed and finished the job, posing as his representative. Despite the similar-sounding names, Sifo-Dyas and Darth Sidious are not the same person.

Question: When Joker goes to Vicky's apartment, how did he know where she lived?

Tony

Chosen answer: She's a semi-famous reporter/photographer. It would be fairly easy (especially for a criminal) to find her home.
