Questions about specific movies, TV shows and more
These are questions relating to specific titles. General questions for movies and TV shows are here. Members get e-mailed when any of their questions are answered.
Question: How would the United States charge Lokar for his crimes even if he was exposed? He's not an American citizen.
Question: Did Patton really promise to control his temper before being assigned to the third army?
Question: Why did it take so long for the police to arrive at the Murphy's House since Kevin called 911? Since he called them we went through the Spider Scene, Kevin cutting the rope, Marley rescuing Kevin and then after he returned Kevin home the cops finally arrived. Why did it take them so long to arrive?
Question: Here's something I don't understand. When Zack and Gray are in the Gyrosphere, they go to a territory that is not part of the ride, leading to the Indominus attack. My question is, how is this even possible? The ride was shut down, they heard a voice in the sphere tell them to return back to where the ride began, and they could be seen visually on a map with other Gyrospheres, so wouldn't someone know where they were heading and basically forbid it? It's one thing for Claire to go exactly where they last were, but surely the guy operating the ride, or anyone else associated with it, would notice one that didn't come back?
Question: Is the timeline in this movie supposed to be somewhat non-linear? For example - in the scene where Karen and Gill go to Kevin's school to talk to the principal and psychologist, it is specifically mentioned that the new school year is 4 months away meaning it is approximately April since kids typically began school in August. Later, when Larry comes to visit and is talking to the dad in the garage, he mentions the Super Bowl (which you reasonably would have assumed they just watched) but that takes place in January. Plus, Larry's mom tells them that Cool (Larry's son) has just finished eating lunch. How? If they just watched the Super Bowl, it would be dinner since the game is always played in the afternoon. And despite being in "St. Louis" (we know they actually filmed in Florida), it never seems to be winter. The end is really the most confusing with the birthing order. We learned earlier in a scene that Karen is pregnant and is due in February. At some point around this time, we find out that Julie is also pregnant. At this point, Julie's mom Helen has just gone on her first date with Mr. Bowen (Garry's biology teacher) but the end, Helen is having a baby, Julie and Tod's baby barely looks a month old and Karen's baby looks to be about 4 months old. Did Helen marry Mr. Bowen immediately and get pregnant right away?
Question: Why did Bryan risk his and Kim's life by forcing Kim to drive through the shooting soldiers into the courtyard of the U.S. Embassy in Istanbul? They just could've stopped in front of the guarding American soldiers and gotten help. The Albanian mafias who were pursuing after Bryan and Kim were even not behind them because they got already killed by the train. Why?
Question: Why does Sonny write the time that Solozzo calls him at his home to tell him that he has Tom Hagen? He writes "8:30" on the cabinet. I think it's explained in the book, but there is some significance to it.
Question: As Duncan prepares to kill Doc Shabbit, it sounds like Doc says it's hard to kill a man looking him in the eye, isn't it Bill? His name is Duncan not Bill, or am I mis-hearing it?
Question: In real movie time how long did each dream last? The hotel dream time, the city dream, and the snow mountains dream. I don't buy it that they spent 8 years hiking in those mountains.
Question: How did Alan's parents die? On their gravestone it says they died in the same year.
