Question: What phone does Sue have? I've been look all over Google for even some type of hint of what kind of phone it is but I have had no such luck.

Chosen answer: I believe it's the Sony Xperia Tipo.

Question: When Maria is killed by the snake and her father and the townsfolk find out, why do Maria's father and the townsfolk blame Manolo for her death?

John Ohman

Chosen answer: Manolo was the only person with Maria, and there wasn't any other person near by. The townsfolk had probably suspected that Manolo wasn't able to protect her from whatever danger there was, or that Manolo had killed her.

Question: Why is it that BumbleBee still can't talk?

Quantom X

Chosen answer: It's not 100% clear if it's his "natural" voice at the end of the first movie or just the radio, but the other movies imply he's either able to talk but prefers to use the radio, or that his voicebox was only partially repaired, and still malfunctions.

Question: If V was the one in charge of the Facility when Evey is being "tortured" then why are there more than one guard at a time in the scenes? I can understand one as V could change his voice and appearance (as never do you see their faces) but when there are more than one how does that work? I thought he didn't trust anyone?

Chosen answer: As revealed later, they are dummies.


Question: Manolo's father and grandmother as well as his audience, except for Maria, are disappointed in Manolo for not killing the bull at the bull fight. At the end of the scene, the bull shakes his head in disappointment. Why would the bull be disappointed in Manolo too when the bull should know he is the victim?

John Ohman

Chosen answer: The bull, bred for fighting in the ring, likely feels denied of an opportunity to fulfill his purpose to battle to the death. It's like a matter of honor and pride.


Question: Why didn't Magneto simply use the Sentinel-Robots to kill everyone at the White House in front of the camera crews to establish that using robots is a bad idea, completely shut-down the Mutant fear and never expose himself?

Chosen answer: Because that is not Magneto's goal. He wants people to know about him and his cause. To bring other Mutants to his cause.


Question: A few questions. 1. Why does everyone stare at Dre after he claps for Meiying for her performance? 2. Why is she told by her parents her and Dre can't be friends anymore? 3. Are there tournaments in China like the one in this movie? 4. Was this filmed in China at all?


Chosen answer: 1. It was unexpected. In China, not clapping is considered a compliment. 2. They feel Dre is a distraction. 3. Yes. There are martial arts tournaments in China as depicted in the film. 4. Yes. The scenes which feature the Forbidden City, Wudang Mountain, and the Great Wall were filmed on location.


Question: When the FBI take McClane and Farrell and the voice of Maggie Q is recognised by Matt - how does she know McClane is with Matt? She says to get her a line to the FBI driver and get me all the info on John McClane. At which point did they even know John McClane's name or who he was?

Chosen answer: The radio line mentioned the officer's name in the seconds after Gabriel's voice recognition picked up Farrell's name.

Question: How old is Danny supposed to be? And why in the scene were Daniel is out to eat with his mom after seeing the karate place that Johnny is in, why do they come out point to him laugh and run away?


Chosen answer: Daniel is 15. He turns 16 just before the tournament. Remember that the cobra kais hate Daniel. So the fact that he had the audacity to show up at their dojo and is then spotted eating with his "mommy" amuses them. They run away because they wanted to be ready on their bikes to get him when he left the restaurant.

Question: If Isabel is such a good detective, why did she not question more why Rusty stole the paintings from the random Frenchman? She should have been able to put two and two together and realized that the random Frenchman is The Night Fox.

Chosen answer: Why should Isabel think he is the Night Fox? She knows Rusty and his friends are thieves so she would suspect that they stole them for that reason.

Greg Dwyer

Question: What does Manolo's mother mean when she says, "Wait until he gets here," as she refers to Manolo's father?

John Ohman

Chosen answer: She's saying "wait until he gets here" as in 'wait until his time comes and he's in the land of the remembered'. As in, more morbidly, just wait until Manolo's father dies & she's able to scold him in the land of the remembered.

Question: Why were the carnival Strongman and the other carnival workers chasing Oz?

Chosen answer: Because Oscar (Oz) was flirting with the wife of one of the strongmen.


Question: OK, hope I'm articulating this properly: when Marty returns to 1985 from 2015 with Jen and the Doc, he places Jen at the porch of her own home. At this point, he hasn't realised yet that he's actually in an alternate 1985, because old Biff has discovered the time machine, and taken the Sports Almanac to the Biff of 1955. We all know what happens from there: Marty and the Doc now have to go back to 1955 (again) to stop Biff from getting the almanac, thus making the upcoming 1985 timeline "correct." Well, as they are come Jen is OK? Surely, as she was left in the alternate 1985 and isn't really in the "correct" 1985, she now fails to exist when Marty comes back to the "correct" 1985 to collect her at the porch? She must disappear with the alternate 1985? Or am I over thinking this?

Chosen answer: According to Doc, the timeline fixed itself around her. The best explanation I found online was since she was from the original 1985, when everything reset, it was as if she was still in the original timeline.


Question: Is Edward supposed to be Hansel and Gretel's father? If so, was there some explanation as to how or why since the head evil witch told Hansel and Gretel he was hung? Was she lying?

Chosen answer: Edward is not Hansel and Gretel's father. He helps them because he is a troll. Trolls serve witches.


Question: Isn't the plot inherently flawed? Chow was already in Las Vegas, so there's no real correlation between him and the main characters, so he would've stolen Marshall's gold, whether or not he met them right?

Chosen answer: Not necessarily. Keep in mind, before that, Chow didn't have any prior relations to Marshall, but after they showed up, he did, when he kidnapped B. Doug, who works for Marshall. It would make sense that Marshall would then be angry at Chow, and prompt the latter to steal his gold.

Question: Did Rupert Grint truly get nicked in the face by debris during the wizard's chess match? All google searches come back with blogs of personal opinions.


Chosen answer: Only people who know for sure, ie. cast and crew, have neither confirmed nor denied him really getting hit. As of right now it's up to speculation.

Show generally

Question: Can someone explain why there is no door to Monica's balcony? Is it normal to climb out a window to get on to the balcony in these types of apartment buildings? It doesn't seem like something that would be allowed due to building regulations.

Chosen answer: There's never been an explanation about why there was no door, but it's supposed to be an older building, and theoretically there could have been a laxer construction code when it was built and inspections were less stringent. There could conceivably have once been a door there, but, for whatever reason, it was made into a window. Of course, this likely would never have happened in real life and it simply makes it more humorous for the character to have to climb in and out the window to utilize the balcony. Also, the size of the balcony changes over the course of the series and the fire escape comes and goes.


Question: What happens to Bobby Dagen after he fails to save his wife from being incinerated?

Chosen answer: We are never told or shown, but it could be speculated that he was trapped in the building or died from his injuries.


Question: Why is the thought that God is dead the sign of a true Catholic?


Chosen answer: I took it as a joke referencing the stereotype that many Catholics focus more on the doom-and-gloom aspects of their faith such as sin, eternal torment in Hell, Christ's suffering, etc., rather than on the more pleasant components like salvation, Heaven, Christ's resurrection, etc.


Question: What happened to Tiffany's pet tarantula, Charlotte?

Chosen answer: She puts it away and it's never seen again for the rest of the movie.
