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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
