Question: How does Chris still have his powers when he travels to the past, but the witches did not when they went to the past?

Chosen answer: With Chris being from the future (and being half-witch, half-whitelighter), he must know about the fact that his aunts can't use their powers in the past. Therefore, he would think to write an advanced spell so that his powers can be used.

THGhost

Answer: It was a different spell, you can see that from episode Chris-crossed, the charmed ones did not drew anything when travelled to their past. It's also explained from the conversation from Phoenix and Chris.

Question: When Katniss asks Johanna about Annie why does Johanna kind of stutter when answering?

Chosen answer: Joanna hesitates a bit when she's recalling how many years ago it was when Annie was in the games-she's tells Katniss it was "four" then corrects herself and says "five." She then seems a bit somber when Katniss indicates that Annie had some kind of mental breakdown, implying that Annie is Joanna's friend. Joanna is being shown as having a softer side than the harder image she tries to project.

Question: I was wondering why the man and woman in the last trap didn't use the woman from the bathtub to give the pints of blood? They could have carried her into the room because the door stayed open for about forty seconds.

Michelle Ferris

Chosen answer: Assuming the woman in the bathtub was able to be moved safely the amount of blood gained from her, while still being helpful, would probably not be enough to save the final two survivors from self harm. Without the heart pumping blood you would only get the blood that was in her arm at the moment. You would have to lift her or raise her so gravity would get other blood moving to get enough. Which the final two possibly could have done, but stress of the situation clouded their judgement.

Question: When Baxter and his men ride into town, he brings 8 hired guns with him for a total of 9; but when the fight starts, there are only 8. Baxter and 4 men confront Charlie and Boss, in the street, and 3 go round behind the buildings. What happened to the 9th man?

Episode #1.1 - S1-E1

Question: Lady Grantham did not want electricity in the bedrooms, but near the end of the episode doesn't she turn out a light at her bedside while Lord Grantham blows out a candle?

Chosen answer: It's possible it's a paraffin lamp. My grandparents have these for power cuts - There is a thick wick which can be raised or lowered by turning a little knob. This can make a brighter flame or cut it out entirely. The flame is covered with a glass tube and, for fancy versions, a lampshade fits over the top.

Question: What was the reason for adding the "bubble" on top of the Rover?

David George

Chosen answer: No reason is given in the film. But the books make mention that he has to have room for the oxygenator, water reclaimer and atmospheric regulator. All of which only work in pressurized areas.

MasterOfAll

Question: If the characters are younger versions of the original crew, why does the picture young Mr. Spock views when he is told that ambassador Spock has died include all of the original crew members? Who are they supposed to be?

Chosen answer: Those are the personal effects of the old/original Spock. He lived a full life with the original Enterprise crew, as documented in the TV shows and movies, then came back in time to the new/altered timeline.

Question: While the chip that Walter recovered from the Horsemen was presumably fake (as the Horsemen discovered earlier in the film), why then did they alert the FBI to that chip?

Question: I know it was never really found out, but was Chris Mannix really the new sheriff of Red Rock?

Chosen answer: Yes, I think he is the only person besides John Ruth that didn't lie about anything during the course of the movie. It is somewhat proven after not accepting Daisy's proposal at the end.

Question: What was the purpose of the scene after the credits? Who was holding the camera to take the pictures?

Answer: I have seen this stuff in other media. I think the purpose is to make room for a sequel. And holding the camera, I think it was just lazy on the film makers part.

Question: What object was in the gorilla mother's hand when she died?

Chosen answer: It was a small, polished stone (probably a raw diamond) that Tarzan subsequently kept as a keepsake of his ape mother. You see him looking at it in a box at the beginning of the film, also.

Charles Austin Miller

Question: I'm just wondering from the way how Hermione says she has non magic parents, is she ashamed of her parents?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: She was not ashamed of her parents. Because she was raised a Muggle, she was never exposed to the magical world. She feels awkward and out-of-place and at a disadvantage compared to those who were born into magical families. Hermione does not like feeling inferior to others.

Question: Did Kate Winslet wear a wig in Titanic?

Chosen answer: No she colored her hair.

Question: When Travis first entered the porn theater, why was it blurred? Was that Martin Scorcese blurring the picture to avoid an NC-17 rating, or was the porn movie supposed to be blurry?

raph

Chosen answer: It could be for several reasons. As you pointed out, it could be to avoid an NC-17 rating, though Scorcese could easily have used scenes that were not specifically pornographic. It may also be to keep the audience's attention focused on Travis and what was is going on in the scene and not be distracted by any pornographic material. Also, if you are referring to when the movie was being aired on TV, then any pornographic materials would have been blurred out to comply with FCC standards. Nudity and pornography cannot be shown on general TV stations.

Question: At the end when Betsy is in the cab, it seems like Travis says hello ages after she got in. So it seems like that scene is imagined. Is it?

raph

Chosen answer: No, it just seems that Travis had no idea what to say to Betsy and after a while, a simple hello is all he could manage.

Question: At the hockey game, did Greg flee when the hockey player was stomping Calvin, because he's not seen?

Roman Curiel

Question: If Tuco seriously thought that The Man with No Name would shoot him, why did Tuco voluntarily stick his head in the noose? Death is death. Why choose hanging over gunshot?

Charles Austin Miller

Chosen answer: Tuco knew he had a better chance at survival (and the gold) by playing along with Blondie and keeping his balance on the cross, hoping Blondie does not miss the rope when he shoots. This final, deadly game was preferable to being shot outright by Blondie and dying a poor man.

Scott215

Question: When Jason shows Nicky the picture of Nathan Daniels and Ward Abbott she says she doesn't know who Ward Abbott is, but I could have sworn they had a scene together in the Bourne Supremacy. Is she lying?

Chosen answer: The man in the picture was Albert Hirsch, not Ward Abbott, and he was never seen in The Bourne Supremacy. She is not lying and she does not know who he is.
