Question: The bride has been in a coma for 4 years, during this time the muscles in her legs have atrophied, yet miraculously the same has not happened to the muscles in her arms. Surely it would not only affect her legs?
Question: I'd like some clarification on the dual timelines in this movie. The past timeline is pretty simple, as it's just a continuation from First Class. But is the future apocalyptic timeline really the same timeline as X-Men, X-2, X-3, Origins, and The Wolverine? I ask because, while it'd be much simpler than having THREE different timelines unnecessarily, I'm not sure it really adds up. Why didn't Trask and his prototype Sentinels have a MUCH heavier presence in those previous movies? Why are there two Bolivar Trask characters, one of whom is portrayed by the African American Bill Duke, and another by Peter Dinklage? How does the after-credits scene from The Wolverine play into the events of Days of Future Past?
Question: Who put Magneto in that plastic prison? Nixon and his cabinet don't seem know anything about mutants or see them as a threat (even after Cuba). Yet they put Magneto in a plastic prison as they know he can bend metal, so why wasn't anyone in the US government and most notably the President informed of this fact? It would have made Trask's appeals a lot more justified. Even likely sentinels would have been put into action a lot sooner rather then later.lionhead
Question: In terms of the scene when Anna, Kristoff, Olaf, and Sven are chased by the snow monster, I have two questions to ask. 1) Why does Olaf call the monster Marshmallow? 2) While Anna, Kristoff, and Olaf fall off the cliff and Sven runs into a different direction when the chase begins, how does Sven get down to the bottom of the cliff?John Ohman
Question: In Divination class, Harry predicts that Ron will suffer but be happy. Is this a particular reference to anything that happens later in the series? (I have read the books, so spoilers are fine).
Question: In the beginning, Sheldon and Amy are attending a reading (or lecture) of Brian Greene. It seems Sheldon is truly mocking, although at the end he says he's kidding. Do theoretical physicists consider Greene to be a hack, or is he respected in the field of physics? Are Sheldon and Amy truly laughing at him?Bishop73
Question: Did Professor Snape have an ulterior motive for participating in the Dueling Club, or was it just simple personal interest?
Question: When the transvestite is propositioning Calvin, he says "I'll even throw in some lawn furniture." Later, when Calvin tells his wife about the encounter, he says "they offer lawn furniture as a come on!" I have been puzzled by what the tranny was referring to for years! Urban Dictionary has been no help at all! Does anyone know what s/he was referring to?Captain Defenestrator
Question: At the beginning of the movie, Peter asks Voldemort if they can perform the ritual without Harry. Why? Does he now feel bad for betraying Harry's parents?
Question: When Danny presses the button, the red spaceship moves onto a white space. Later in the movie, after accepting the astronauts' help, all three discover that the red spaceship is now on a blue space. How could it have gotten there? Neither Danny or Walter kicked the board and Danny never actually moved it from its original position since they had to deal with getting rid of the Zorgons.
Question: Why do all the SEALS have scruffy beards? Usually they are clean shaved, right? I was just wondering if it's maybe for the mission that they are on, but I see all the SEALS there have a bunch of facial hair. Can someone confirm this?
Question: Why does Freddy come back in the end? I thought he was dead? Why is he killing now the adults?
Question: If Professor X transferred only his consciousness into his twin brother, why is he not able to walk? His brother did not suffer a spinal injury, he only suffered from basically being brain dead. So why can't the new Professor X walk around? He can speak, move his head, and arms but not walk.
