Question: When Melody escapes the castle she swims beneath that giant wall, through a hole and pulls out one of the metal bars that's there. Later on when she escapes the castle after arguing with Ariel, she happens to freely walk outside and pulls a boat and the sea's there. What happened to the hole?

Answer: She would only be going through that hole when she's swimming, but since she was walking on land there was no need for it. She could've gotten the boat and brought it to shore another way.

Question: At the end when the evil Alpha dragon runs away, you see that Drago Blood Fist was still on the dragon. The large dragon retreated, going underwater and is not seen again. So did that kill Blood Fist? did he drown?

Chosen answer: That's kind of left in the middle, so that Hiccup can have his revenge without having to flat-out murder someone.

Question: When Cage wakes up the last time after killing the Omega, he arrives in London before his first meeting with Brigham to find the war is over, but he did not destroy the Omega in Paris until the night after he met Brigham and got busted to private. How is this timeline explained?

Chosen answer: Because they don't destroy the Omega the night after Cage meets with the General, they destroy it that night of the day Cage meets the General. Cage wakes up, visits Rita, visits the Dr., then goes back to the General, wakes up later that day in the hospital with powers gone, escapes and gets J squad, goes to the Louvre and destroys the Omega. This is all done before the large battle that was to take place the morning after Cage meets the General. This is shown by the fact that while lining up to go to the war, Sergeant Farell says "Where is J squad?!?" So when Cage dies after destroying the Omega, he wakes up at the moment when he began the day, which was on the helicopter.

Question: When Jasmine works out that Prince Ali is Aladdin (the boy from the market), why does she get angry at him? Shouldn't she be happy that he's actually alive, considering Jafar told her earlier on that Aladdin had been sentenced to death and killed?

Heather Benton Premium member

Chosen answer: She's upset because she thinks Aladdin lied to her twice about everything - first by pretending he was Aladdin, then by lying in the guise of Ali.

Question: When Jules and Vincent go to the students' flat at the beginning of the movie, Jules asks the guy on the couch to tell him where the briefcase is. He begins by saying "You. A flock of seagulls. Where is it?" What does he mean by calling him "a flock of seagulls"?

The_Iceman

Chosen answer: It's a reference to his hairstyle; A Flock Of Seagulls was a new wave band from the early 1980s who were as well known for their frontman's unusual hairstyle as their sound. You can learn more about them here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Flock_of_Seagulls.

Question: I have looked all over online trying to find the names of the songs in this games' soundtrack. Putting the disk of the game in my computer, I can get the songs on my media players, but it just lists them as track 2, track 3, track 4, so on and so forth, track 1 just being data and not music. So does any body know and can list the names of the songs in this game in the order they are on the disk? There are 18 songs listed on there from numbers 2 to 19. And this is in the Titanium Edition of the game. I don't know how the songs are in the normal edition. I also have a similar problem with the normal version of Mech Warrior 3 but it just has 2 songs.

Question: I am struggling to figure out what the title of the movie, Watership Down, has to do with the movie itself at all. Can someone please explain what the title refers to?

Quantom X Premium member

Chosen answer: Watership Down is the name of a real hill in Hampshire. In the context of the film and the book, it is the location where Fiver and the other rabbits set up their new warren after leaving Sandleford.

Question: Is there a way to know what was going on in the TV footage that Forest is in? For example when He shows Johnson his wound and Johnson walks away laughing, or when he has the confrontation with Kennedy, what was going on with the actual footage they used?

lartaker1975

Chosen answer: (1) The effects artists involved in "Forrest Gump" used footage of President Lyndon Johnson giving an award to Sammy Davis Jr., and superimposed Hanks over Davis to make it look like the president was giving Gump a medal. (2) Forrest appears with John Lennon on "The Dick Cavett Show." This was morphed with footage of John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s first appearance with Mr. Cavett, which aired September 11, 1971. They were the only guests on the show that evening. But In the film, Forrest Gump's image is superimposed over Yoko Ono’s (original: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=78L_v3_ufQ0). In the "Forrest Gump" film, Cavett plays himself, made up to look younger. (3) I believe the archival footage of President John F. Kennedy is actual footage of Kennedy honoring a championship football team, with Tom Hanks digitally inserted. But I do not know which team nor the year. In all instances, when Forrest Gump is digitally composited into historic events, the special effects team recreated that archival footage with actor Tom Hanks. They combined their new work with the actual clip via CGI and clever editing. Finally, in post-production, they modified mouth movements of the historical figures so that they appear to be saying the new dialogue.

Question: Why in the world does Peter try to help Harry after their first fight? Was he hoping to defeat Harry and try to tell him what happened to his father afterwards? Even more, why is it Harry, of all people, to whom Peter goes for help with taking on Sandman and Venom after he gladly fought Harry for the second time? If, as Harry tells him on revealing himself, Peter knew he would eventually have to fight Harry, why didn't he jump ahead and find a new friend after Harry found him out? It doesn't make any sense.

Chosen answer: Peter doesn't know anyone else with superpowers or gadgets that he could call on to help with this fight. He'd tried to tell Harry earlier about his father and knows that Harry's just acting out of misguided rage and guilt and still hopes to set things right between them.

Question: After they get away from the men that say the brothers are worth 200 pesos, they run across the military and one of the brothers is shot and the other runs. After the brother that was left behind shoots himself, the lead soldier cuts off his head in a single swing with his sword. But he has one of those thin swords you always see the commanders and stuff holding during those times. Would he have really been able to remove the Brother's head in one swing like that with such a flimsy sword?

Quantom X Premium member

Chosen answer: It would depend on four things: the sharpness of the sword, the strength of the steel used to forge it, the strength of the man swinging it, and the luck to slice though one of the ligaments between the victim's vertebrae, but theoretically, yes, it's possible to sever a head with a single sword blow.

Question: Once Zelda and Link confront Ganon on the road, he summons more skeletons up and they surround Link and Zelda. 7 Skeletons against Link and Zelda. So what's Link's plan of action? He takes off his belt and wraps it around himself and Zelda, strapping them together back to back to fight the 7 skeletons. This to me seems like it would just hinder their mobility. So my question is what is the really point of Link strapping himself to Zelda like that while surrounded? does it actually make sense to do that?

Quantom X Premium member

Chosen answer: It'll be to ensure that they're always facing directly away from each other, 12 o'clock and 6 o'clock, meaning between the two of them they've pretty much got 360 degree coverage. Otherwise there's a chance they might end up at say 12 o'clock and 3 o'clock, leaving themselves exposed from another direction.

Question: When Bilbo is talking to Smaug, Smaug refers to Thorin as "Oakenshield." How would Smaug know Thorin is called that since the incident with Thorin using the log as a shield didn't occur until after the attack on Erabor?

Chosen answer: This is stated in one of the corrections - in the movie it is hinted that Smaug has been contacted by the necromancer. If Smaug had been contacted by the necromancer, it would have given him news of what was going on in the rest of middle earth, including the fate of Thorin.

Question: In Dana's bedroom, after she's possessed, there's a picture next to her bed. Is that Reagan from The Exorcist?

Chosen answer: I watched clips from both movies to compare the images. The picture of the little girl next to Dana's bed looks a little like Regan from the Exorcist, but the hair styles are different enough to conclude that it is not. Regan had longer and straighter hair while the girl in the photo has shorter and bushier locks.

Question: Supposedly JK Rowling has said that Nagini is the snake who Harry meets at the zoo, but if so, why does the zoo snake talk in a male voice?

Chosen answer: JK Rowling has never said they were the same snake. Rowling makes it clear in the book that Nagini is some type of venomous snake while the snake in the zoo was a constrictor.

Question: Did Victor put up the road block sign that lead Wallace and Gromit into the woods?

Avh1

Chosen answer: Yes, there are some hints that Victor painted the road closed sign and cut down the fallen tree that traps Wallace and Gromit in the forest - there is a pot of white paint behind the sign, and Gromit sees the tree has been chopped down and Victor has an axe.

Question: Does the art museum catch fire from the lava even though they tried to stop it by putting a bus against it?

Chosen answer: Lava is extremely hot. It heats the air above and around it to such a degree that it can reach the flash point of various items.

Question: Why does Fred always wanna go off with Daphne?

Chosen answer: During most episodes of "Scooby Doo, Where Are You?," the gang often split up to explore the latest haunted mansion or abandoned windmill or deserted amusement park. Scooby and Shaggy would generally end up together, Velma would often go off alone, and Daphne would frequently go exploring with Fred. It seemed to be a running theme in the "Scooby Doo" cartoons that Daphne was perpetually flirting with Fred. Fred, however, always seemed much more obliviously preoccupied with finding the next clue, foiling Daphne's amorous intentions. I have always been under the impression that the Scooby-Doo gang was a pretty sexually ambiguous group. More than a few people have suggested that athletic, well-coiffed, ascot-wearing Fred, and bookish Velma were early archetypes of gay/lesbian teens. The show existed in a time when several cartoons suggested sexual ambiguity in its characters: Effete Snagglepuss, a repeatedly drag-wearing Bugs Bunny (who even appeared in TV's first same-sex wedding with phallic rifle-toting Elmer Fudd), prim and polite gophers Mac and Tosh, Peppermint Patty, Marcie, Schroeder and Linus from the "Peanuts" cartoons. But whether or not any then subversive homosexual undertones were ever intended in any of the characters, the oft-paired Daphne and Fred never seemed able to get their relationship beyond the lukewarm stage, much to Daphne's apparent chagrin.

Question: What did they use to create the sound of the Turbo's engine?

Question: Why do Jafar and Aladdin call the Sultan "Your Highness," and not "Your Majesty" or something similar? I thought Your Highness was only for Princes and Princesses.

Heather Benton Premium member

Chosen answer: This is a fictional universe. For whatever reason, the animators chose to refer to the sultan using that honorific. Also, what you're referring to relates to European royalty and not the Middle East.
