Question: Anyone notice the monolith at the far left of the matte painting showing the first view of Zyra after the ship landed? The details on it are WAY too symmetric to be natural (The Authors of When Worlds Collide printed a sequel called "After Worlds Collide", but this novel was never made into a movie), In the sequel, the survivors find the remains of a lost civilization.Regulus
Question: Who is Vivian's friend that's always hanging out with her? I don't think her name is ever mentioned in the film.
Question: How is Elle able to keep Bruiser with her at Harvard? Last time I checked, pets are not allowed.
Question: An alien taking the form of a blonde guy from a video game tells the heroes that if they defeat Donkey Kong, the invasion will end. Who is the blonde guy anyway?
Question: When trying to find a way to rescue the hostages, why pose as a film crew? Why not as a bunch of tourists?
Question: At the start of the film, when Soze kills Keaton, the camera pans to the piles of rope that, later in the film, is shown to be the hiding place for Verbal as he 'watches' Keaton get shot. As Verbal is later found out to in fact be Soze, what is the significance of the rope, surely no one is hiding there? As Verbal is the one that is shooting Keaton? Was there someone else hiding that we don't know?
Question: How did Brittney even know Tobey's phone number, and why would Ian sit his phone right next to them?
Question: Just out of curiosity but in the scene with Nedry's encounter with the Dilophosaurus (or whatever), I was wondering, why would the Dilophosaurus wait until Dennis got inside the jeep to kill him? Why not kill him while he was passed out?
Question: In 700 years, everyone on board the Axiom has grown very fat, lived their whole life on hover chairs and kept their faces buried in their screens. So where did all of the children come from? Every adult only looked at or talked to each other through the screens so how could any children exists if the adults never left the hover chair. That kind of ongoing lifestyle should not have produced any children at all and after about 200 or even 300 years all life aboard the Axiom and other ships should have been wiped out.
