Questions about specific movies, TV shows and more
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: At the beginning of the movie I counted 9 bad guys. We only see 1 die, then there are 6 - what happen to the others?
Question: Why is Anakin's prosthetic arm so low-quality compared to the hand that Luke gets in Episode V? It seems that Luke and the Rebellion would have less money to spend on doctors and a more realistic hand.
Question: Phil is unable to leave Punxsutawney after his broadcast because of the blizzard. Has there ever been any explanation as to why he doesn't try to leave Punxsutawney as soon as he wakes up? I'm sure the time loop would have still been in effect, but unless I'm mistaken, the movie never addresses whether or not Phil ever tried to leave town before the roads were closed.Phaneron
Question: In the turkey dinner scene the cranberry sauce is called beets several times. Are they beets?
Question: Can someone explain to me how the enchantment over the village works? I haven't seen the movie for a while, but when Fiona takes Tommy and Jeff to see the teacher who tells them the story of how the place became magical, he says something about the village waking up every hundred years. So is every day a hundred years later or are the village stuck in that time period forever? It just seems strange that Charlie and Jean would wait hundreds of years to get married, and after Harry dies, Fiona's dad says that everyone can find out in the next morning. Also when Tommy comes back at the end, the village comes to life again even though it disappeared into the mist when him and Jeff were leaving to go back to New York.
Question: When Dooku slices off Anakin's arm in the hangar, why does he later receive a cybernetic replacement rather than just reattaching it? Amputated parts of the human body can survive up to several hours (even days, if so), so the troopers would have plenty of time to transport Anakin to a medical bay. Sure cybernetics are physically stronger than the normal parts of the human body, but human flesh gives the Jedi more potential, so why not just "reattach" it?
