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.

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.

Best Little Horror House in Langley Falls - S6-E3

Question: What kind of ghoul did Buckle's wife say was on the car?

Chosen answer: She says "facacta" ghoul. It's a Yiddish word meaning ridiculous. It's not a type of ghoul, just her being annoyed at Buckle.

Question: A few questions about Snape's death: How did Voldemort slice Snape's throat with his wand without saying anything? Where exactly did Nagini bite Snape? Did he die from wounds or from venom?

raph

Answer: Nagini kills Snape by biting him in the neck, it was in the movie.

Chosen answer: More magically advanced wizards do not need to speak the name of the spell to cast it. In the books, Harry and other students spend time learning how to cast spells silently. It is not specifically explained how Nagini kills Snape, but most likely it is a combination of various bites over his body and the venom.

Question: The end of the movie shows Scrat and his acorn frozen in and eventually thawed from a block of ice 20,000 years later. How did he come back for the sequels?

Chosen answer: The sequels take place before he was frozen.

MasterOfAll

Question: At the end, after the Indians leave and Harlow says "Wagons ho", when the wagons are moving, there's a stool thrown into the field from the left of the screen (in my viewing thrown from off-camera). Was there a joke I missed or does someone know who threw it and why?

New Jack City - S2-E19

Question: When Carson arrives at the dojo he is friends with everyone except for Jack. But Kim didn't know any of the other kids until Jack because she was a black dragon. How did they all know him?

Meggrundmeier

Answer: Because Jack came through a wall.

Question: A few questions regarding the pigeon lady. 1. Other than being heartbroken from so many people, is more revealed about how she became homeless? 2. In the room where Kevin and the pigeon lady are watching the orchestra, how did they get in? Does she live there? Did she break in?

Chosen answer: I think that she couldn't handle her divorce and then lost her job and home because of it. And she kind of lost the will to live and now just survives. Odds are a back stairwell or fire escape.

Greg Dwyer

Question: What exactly is the "Cardinal Rule" that Marcus broke that got him killed by Viggo?

Chosen answer: Viggo put out a contract on John Wick (meaning Viggo offered a large bounty for somebody to kill John Wick). Marcus accepted the contract. The "Cardinal Rule" was that, if you accept the contract, you must kill your target. No ifs, ands, or buts. Marcus broke that Cardinal Rule because he did not kill John Wick when he had the chance.

Charles Austin Miller

Question: Why did Willi Cicci testify against Michael in court? Michael didn't do anything to Willi. In fact he even took part in the assassination of the other 4 families on behalf of Michael.

Chosen answer: Willi had mistakenly believed that Michael had betrayed him and was behind the attack that almost killed him.

Question: When the prisoner is running away from the motel to escape, how does he end up back at the motel again?

Chosen answer: The motel isn't real, and neither are any of the characters in its proximity. They are all aspects of Malcolm's personalities that are being killed off one by one in order to make sure his true murderous personality is vanquished. As such, the session by which Malcolm is being forced to do all this is designed so that all the personalities are stuck within the same place with no chance of leaving, which explains the bad storm, the road obstruction, etc.

Question: Who were all the skeletons that the Mother sees toward the end of the film? It's never explained. Also, what room was that?

Chosen answer: It was The Gold Room. The skeletons are simply those of past guests: we never learn their identities.

Question: The police find the accomplice's body in the trailer. In the last scenes the same body appears in the trunk of the car before it explodes. How did it get there if police had discovered it earlier?

Drummerboy

Chosen answer: The police never find Harman (the dead guy). Charley was hiding outside the trailer when Harman was killed and he's the one who found him and took his body. When the police bust into the trailer, no one (dead or alive) is there.

Question: When Chekov and Kirk step into their escape pods while on the Enterprise there are wearing their yellow uniforms, but when arriving on the planet they step out of the escape pods and are now wearing a completely different outfit. All of the other crew that used escape pods have not changed outfits. Where did they get the new clothes from?

krissrush

Chosen answer: The outfits were in the escape pods they escaped in. The other crew members didn't change outfits because they were all captured and were unable to. Chekov and Kirk were not captured and were also the only crew on board who successfully escaped in the designated escape pods, so logically they would be the only people wearing different outfits.

Casual Person

Question: People with a rank of 10 or higher are immune from the purge, this means the NFFA and Senator Roan are immune. Why put themselves at risk of getting killed by removing the restriction if they could've had her delivered as plan, killed, and then denied her murder at the conclusion of the purge?

Chosen answer: Because they believed in what the purge represented. In their eyes it is a legal thing, so in order for them to legally get rid of the senator they had to remove the restriction legally, not break the law.

lionhead

Question: If Kylo Ren idolizes his grandfather, Darth Vader, why did he turn to the dark side? If Luke was the one who trained him, surely he would've told Kylo that Darth Vader redeemed himself at the end of ROTJ after saving Luke and killing the Emperor.

Chosen answer: He would have to have taken Luke's word that Vader was redeemed as there were no witnesses who survived - Snoke may well have convinced him that Luke was lying to him. The Dark Side is predicated on lies.

Question: Has anybody been able to work out where V's hideout is, since there are only a few clues given within the film such as the colour of the stone, the fact it is underground, and the domed roof (when Evie walks in the rain) and is modern enough to have an elevator to take her there. I've always thought it would be under Victoria station but cannot find the matching dome in the area.

Chosen answer: In the graphic novel, V's hideout is, indeed, revealed to be Victoria Station, but if you are referring to the film, the building in question sits next to the Bank Underground Station, at the corner of Lombard and Cornhill.

Question: When after a car chase, Mr. Brown, Mr. White and Mr. Orange are confronted with the cops, Mr. Brown (Tarantino) has been injured on his forehead, but nothing fatal (he was just able to drive the car, and seems quite vigorous). At first sight, it doesn't look worse than it might be caused by him bumping his head into the steering wheel while hitting the parked car. Mr. White shoots both arriving cops while they're still in the police car, while Mr. Orange passively witnesses from outside the car, where Mr. Brown is still behind the wheel. After the shooting, we see Mr. Brown again, now seemingly dead from his head injuries. I always thought this change happened all too sudden for Mr. Brown to die from the injuries he'd already suffered, but Mr. White was shooting away from him; the cops did not even have time to draw their guns before being shot themselves; Mr. Orange is shown as being passive; and there doesn't seem to be any bullet holes in the windows of the car, front or back. Also, in the warehouse Mr. Brown is said to have been killed by a bullet to the head by one of his colleagues. So, who killed Mr. Brown and how/when?

knahrvorn

Chosen answer: They say "Brown took one in the head" but not from one of his own men. He was shot in the head with a small caliber bullet. It probably broke the blood/brain barrier and he slowly bled out internally but was able to survive to that point.

Question: I have 3 questions. 1) Did Sirius really care about Harry or was he just using Harry as a chance to have his best friend back? 2) When did Sirius ever treat Harry like Harry's dad if he ever did treat Harry like James? 3) Why did Sirius say Harry only might be able to live with him if Harry was expelled from Hogwarts and then not talk to Harry when he found out he could go back to Hogwarts?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: Sirius truly loved his godson. Sirius didn't specifically treat Harry like he was James but he did see him as something of a substitute. This is better explained in the novels. Sirius was incarcerated in Azkaban as a very young man, resulting in his emotional maturity being stunted and his judgment impaired. He sometimes acted recklessly and treated Harry more like his friend and equal rather than his ward who he should be mentoring and setting good examples. He sometimes unwisely supported or encouraged Harry's acting inappropriately as he and James had done at that age. Sirius never would have shirked his responsibility as godfather and would have made sure Harry always had a home. Harry believed that Sirius, who was lonely and isolated from being in hiding, may have been hoping Harry was expelled so he could live with him and keep him company. Because Sirius was a hunted fugitive, he could not openly talk or visit with Harry once he returned to Hogwarts. That would risk Sirius being captured and also implicate Harry as abetting a convicted criminal (although Sirius was innocent).
