Question: Why was the detective tortured? I don't get it. Who is the girl that brings the detective to Verone?

Amirul Hazri

Chosen answer: The detective was tortured because Verone needed a window of time without any police presence and the detective refused to allow it. The girl is just some random hottie that works for Verone.

Question: We know that Jasper and Rosalie pose as 18-year-old twins while in school at Forks, and presumably Edward poses as a 17-year-old...But what ages are Emmett and Alice meant to be while at school?

Chosen answer: Emmett and Alice are also supposed to be 17 or 18. It is not specified exactly, but in Breaking Dawn, all the Cullen siblings graduate the same year. In New Moon, Rosalie and Emmett graduate and "go off to college", while the others begin their senior years. As they are all supposed to be "adopted" by Carlisle and Esme Cullen, it is not unusual that they would all be the same ages.

Question: How could Superman kill Zod by breaking his neck? He's from Krypton like Superman so he should also be invulnerable.

Chosen answer: Kryptonians aren't invulnerable. It just takes a lot to hurt one after he has been charged by our yellow sun. There are several beings who are strong enough to break a Kryptonian's bones. Doomsday, Darkseid, etc. Since both are roughly equal in strength on Earth, its no different than one human breaking another's neck.

Question: Can anyone give me the title of the song in the Captain's house when Mike and Marcus enter (Marcus drugged, etc.)? It's a song like Bossa Nova Lounge or something like that.

Answer: Buick Blackhawk concept car.

Question: How does Mikael know where Lisbeth's father and half-brother live? Lisbeth found the post office box address from the rental car rego plates, and then staked it out, for quite a while, and when a young man opened it and got the mail out, she followed him straight to her father. Mikael did none of that, so how was he able to arrive like a knight in shiny armour at the exact time to save Lisbeth's life?

Chosen answer: Malin tells Mikael that "Karl Axel Bodin" lives at "the address for PO Box 612, at Gosseberga". Gosseberga is not a town, but the name of the farmhouse property near Nossebro where Zalachenko and Niedermann live, so it is the only place with that name near Gothenburg.

Question: When Miriam gives Mikael Lisbeth's keys - Lisbeth dropped her keys while she was visiting Miriam in the hospital - Mikael looks at them and says, "It looks like a post box key." Can someone please explain how Mikael is able to find the right post box and the right number (none of these are printed on the key), so then he can go to her place?

kh1616

Chosen answer: Lisbeth let Miriam stay in her old apartment on the condition that she forward any mail sent there to a post office box, so Miriam would have known the box number and location.

Question: I just watched this movie for the first time and I have three questions that are really confusing me. When Alice is in the cabin and that dead girl comes through the window, (I forgot her name), how did that girl die? All I saw was blood and ropes on her so I was wondering what happened. When Mrs. Voorhees is with Alice just before she tries to kill her, we see her repeat "Kill her mommy. Kill her", so I was wondering if Jason was possessing her or not? When Jason, as a kid, comes through the water and grabs Alice in her dream, he's disfigured and burnt. How could that be if all he did was drown? If anybody can explain all my questions with great details, I would really appreciate it.

Chosen answer: 1. She was most likely hanged. 2. Mrs. Voorhees wasn't possessed by Jason. She simply went insane when Jason drowned and wanted revenge. 3. He's not burnt, only disfigured.

New this month Answer: Brenda was her name. And I think that she was stabbed. Or strangled. Or beaten to death. However as her murder was offscreen we will probably never know. What we do know is that she screamed before she died. Bow and arrow? (She was last seen at the archery range).

Question: Can someone explain what it means that Jacob imprinted on Renesmee? I thought imprinting meant you want to be with that person (like love and marry them). But now that Jacob has imprinted on Renesmee, I think I'm wrong.

Chosen answer: Werewolf imprinting means you love that person in exactly the way they need you to love them. In Jacob's case, this means he feels a fatherly/brotherly love for Renesmee now. When she gets older those feelings may change to a romantic love, but that depends on whether Renesmee is ever able to see Jacob as anything other than a big brother. If she thinks it's too weird to feel romantically toward Jacob due to the nature of their relationship during her childhood, he will forever be her platonic protector and be absolutely elated by it. Fast as she grows though, it's unlikely they'll have spent so long in those familial roles that she won't be able to see him as anything else.

Question: At the end, Bond and Dr Goodhead see Jaws and Dolly on what's left of the space station. Bond asks Jaws to help them because they are stuck and can't set off, and Jaws obliges, but why did Bond not ask Jaws and Dolly to join them on the shuttle too? Jaws helped Bond escape, so they are basically on the same side, so why did he not try to save Jaws and his girlfriend?

Heather Benton Premium member

Chosen answer: Jaws knows there's no time. If Bond doesn't destroy the nerve gas satellites, millions will die.

Question: In Amanda's flashback, John says "Then start with this." as he gives a yellow envelope to Amanda. What is in that envelope?

Bunch

Chosen answer: The envelope that John gives Amanda in the flashback contains photos of Adam so that Amanda can kidnap him and put him in the bathroom.

Question: Given that Ivy could see some people's "color", did she know it was Noah chasing her in the woods?

Edward A. Torres Sr.

Chosen answer: This was left very ambiguous. Ivy knew the "creatures" were not real because her father had told her it was a ruse the elders used to frighten the youths to keep them from leaving the village. However, it was mentioned by one of the elders that the creatures were based on old stories, myth and legend that's why she was freaking out when her cloak was darken by the mud and why she became frightened by Noah's monster costume. As for her sight of color it does not appear that Ivy knows it is Noah who is chasing her.

raywest Premium member

Answer: It is presumed that Ivy cannot see Noah's color as she was unaware that he was inside of her coat closet after he had hidden there during a game of hide and seek. In the scene she is seen hanging her coat inside of a closet occupied by Noah. She puts the garment inside and goes about her business completely unaware of his presence. This indicates that he does not give off a color.

Answer: She stated in the beginning she couldn't always see color in people.

Question: The scenes with Zeb and Lou have always puzzled me. Lou is trying to stop Zeb for going after outlaw Gant and the two have a last scene arguing where Zeb says basically that he will use the Law to put away Gant, but that he'll need Gant's help. The next scene is the two on the train to protect the gold from Gant's gang, and Zeb and Lou are working together now. But Lou's got a bandage on his forehead! I think the previous scene might have had a fight scene between the two in which Zeb finally convinces Lou to help him, hence the head injury. There's no other explanation for it. Anyone have any ideas?

Chosen answer: This type of inconsistency is common in film making. More scenes are often filmed and/or they are much longer, but after editing, large portions are often cut out. Although the editing may improve the film's story line and pacing, it leaves small errors behind. This appears to be the case in this movie where a scene was completely deleted, but it left an unexplained detail behind.

Question: The crew takes a private jet to most locations but always have the same black S.U.V.s. How do the vehicles get there as fast as the crew?

RGW

Chosen answer: Black SUVs are common police, military and dignitary vehicles around the world. It is not too much to assume they could be rented or owned by the police forces in the areas.

Question: I'm confused. Palpatine wanted to use Queen Amidala to get himself voted as chancellor so he could have control over the republic. Why did he send Darth Maul after the Queen's ship when it escaped if he needed the Queen alive?

Chosen answer: The entire time Palatine is bitching to Viceroy Gunray that he needs the Queen to sign the treaty to make the blockade and invasion legal. He didn't send Darth Maul to kill Amadala, he sent him to capture her and to deal with her Jedi escort.

Quantom X

Question: What is the name given to those cart things that can be driven around San Andreas? For a detailed description, the carts being referred to kind of look like a golf cart, but without the roof on it and they are only shown in San Andreas, and not shown in Los Santos.

Casual Person

Chosen answer: It is called a Civillian Caddy. Also the location being referred to is not San Andreas, but in fact Sandy Shores.

Question: Why did Carrie's mom want to kill her?

Chosen answer: A combination of factors is at play here. Carrie's mother, Margaret, is mentally unstable. She is a staunch fundamentalist Christian. Her daughter, Carrie, is a product of forced intercourse by her drunken husband which her mother admits to having enjoyed, regardless of its sinful nature. Carrie exhibits telekinetic powers, which Margaret labels witchcraft. Carrie goes to the prom against her mother's wishes, which Margaret considers sinful. Margaret ultimately sees her daughter as an evil spawn, imbued with Satanic powers, who is also beginning to assert her independence and defy Margaret's Christian principles. It was probably part of Margaret's delusion that killing her daughter in the midst of prayer (they are reciting "The Lord's Prayer" when Margaret stabs Carrie in the back and continues to attack her) might facilitate her possibility for redemption.
