Question: In the final scene with the Lonely Mountain in view, is the sun rising or setting? Does either actually work with their location?

Chosen answer: The sun is rising. The sun is in the East which does make sense, but because Middle Earth is a fictional world it is possible for it to break the rules of our world. The important thing is that the sun remains more or less in the same location for the entire scene.

Question: It becomes clear why Hans intends to kill Elsa. Here's what I don't understand though. One of the Duke's body guards tries to shoot Elsa with his crossbow, but Hans redirects the shot toward the chandler so to have it crash down on the Snow Queen. Why would Hans need to kill her that way? If he is eager to kill Elsa then why doesn't he just let the body guard kill her with an arrow?

Chosen answer: He didn't need to kill her a certain way. He needed her to reverse the winter first, that's why he tried to stop her from being killed.

Question: When Dom is contacting everyone about the job in London, what was the purpose of the whole spectacle when Han and Gisele get the call? Who were all those people? And how did Dom get in contact with them first? Is it explained outside of the film (interviews etc)?

Chosen answer: An assumption here, but since they are plain-clothes agents and law enforcement officers (one of them is actually listed in the credits as "Lead Chinese Agent"), it could be that Hobbs pulled some law muscle to track Han and Gisele (who may have gone incommunicado after the Rio heist) so Dom could talk to them on the phone.

Question: When Mrs. Travers arrives at her hotel there are two pieces of luggage that she picks up and takes in the room herself, when she leaves she has those two pieces plus a large suitcase. Where did it come from?

Chosen answer: The large suitcase was most likely carrying the large Mickey mouse doll that she decided to keep. The size alone would require an extra case.

Question: Is it out of character for Sheldon to be willing to donate sperm just for money considering that he has no interest in sex?

luke f

Chosen answer: Sheldon believes himself to be superior to all other humans and therefore his lack of desire for sex is only superseded by his desire to create a superior sub-species of human. This concept is also seen later in the series when he and Amy consider having a baby together to make a super smart child (by invitro of course).

Question: I am a pianist, and have played Debussy, Arabesque no.1, so often. I have seen the movie "Made of Honor" three times, and every time failed to locate the Arabesque in the soundtrack. It is mentioned in the credits. Please tell me at which time in the movie it plays.

mifrankdk

Answer: When Michelle and Tom meet up with the three bridesmaids at the hotel, while they're seated at the table we hear the Arabesque No. 1 performed on the harp as faint background music. (Approx. 00:34:05).

Question: In the last part of the movie, how are they supposed to drive the snow vehicles? There is a scene before where they cut the wires of all the vehicles to disable them for the quarantine. Am I missing something?

Michele SoIntense Anghileri

Chosen answer: By disabling the snow vehicles, they are making sure that the creature can't use them to escape from the quarantine zone. Since the creature can assimilate anybody, it would probably know how to use one.

Question: In the scene with the little boy in the flooding hallway, what language are he and his dad speaking?

Chosen answer: According to the script, it's Russian.

Answer: It's either Czech or Slovak.

Question: If Marty goes back to the future and sees a duplicate of himself go back to the past, would the duplicate see the Marty that had just got back to the future watch him (the duplicate that goes to the past), thus 3 Deloreans and infinitely more Deloreans as it continues...and so on and so forth, or is that the the universe rewriting his timeline to prevent this time loop of paradoxical events?

Craig Celestin

Chosen answer: There wouldn't be infinitely more Deloreans, as versions of Marty would keep having to leave in order to appear at a different point in the timeline to watch himself. There's no real limit on how many there could be at once though - at one point on November 12th 1955 there are four Deloreans in Hill Valley at the same time (brought there by Marty from the first film, Marty from the second film, Biff from the second film, and the one Doc buried from 1885). They're all the same car, just travelling from different points in time.

Question: Since Jack/Victoria are clones, what is the purpose of using 'Sally'? And if Jack is having flashbacks/memories of his wife, wouldn't he have flashbacks of Sally as part of mission control?

Chosen answer: Jack and Victoria believe that they are there on behalf of the human race, so it makes sense for them to have a human face to interact with. Sally is a logical candidate - the Tet would presumably have intercepted her transmissions to the Odyssey and would therefore have plenty to work with in constructing their fake Sally as an interface with their clone workers. It's not made clear in the movie how the original Jack's memories of Julia survived to resurface in his clones, but it seems reasonable that it might be related to the powerful emotions that are associated with those memories, in this case his love for his wife. Sally and Victoria would also feature significantly in the original Jack's memories, but without the same emotional investment, those memories failed to make the transfer into his clones.

Question: I don't understand the ending of the movie when Sue is screaming in her mother's arms and there is a cross on her wall - is she supposed to become a Jesus freak like Carrie's mom, or is her baby gonna have powers like Carrie?

Chosen answer: Sue just woke up from a terrifying nightmare in which Carrie's arm reaches out of her grave and grabs Sue. A lot of hospitals have crosses in the rooms. It's been suggested that Sue might have miscarried and lost her baby.

Question: Who is the brunette girl at the end of the movie sitting on Steveā€˜s lap wearing a bikini? Where did she come from? She was not part of the group.

roxana

Chosen answer: Some woman he met before the outbreak. The clips we see are not all from the survivors' recordings.

Question: Is this movie set in December 2012, six months after the events of The Avengers movie, or December 2013? The newspaper handed to Tony in the garage is dated December 24, 2013.

Michael Zurich

Chosen answer: Iron Man 3 is set in December 2013, but at no point in The Avengers that I can recall was it ever stated to be 2012; that's just the year it came out, not necessarily the year it was set, so in-film continuity would suggest the Avengers is set in 2013.

Question: The scene with the bear, the hunter in the bar, and the poisoned arrows was taken from a particular comic book. Anyone know which one?

Arokthis

Chosen answer: It was the first issue of the Wolverine comic, the 1982 limited series by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller.

Question: At the end, how is it that Alan and Sarah remember Judy and Peter, if they grew up as if nothing had happened?

Melanie Elsworthy

Chosen answer: Alan and Sarah remember everything that had happened during the course of the game's length, as would Judy and Peter if they'd been alive yet when the game started. All players retain their memory of the game after it ends, except in this sort of unusual circumstance where two of them didn't exist at the time the game began.

Phixius Premium member

Answer: Actually I believe the kids did remember there was a silent look shared between all them at the end when they meet up that many people say is confusion but I think its more along the lines of "hey don't blow this shared secret none of us can explain"

Nah there is no indication that Peter an Judy remembered as well. Think about it, they would have remembers from since they were born. Also, they would then also know their parents will die in an accident. Thats crazy. They had that look because Alan and Sarah reacted that way and were wondering why they did that. They didn't say anything and even wondered why Alan and Sarah so emphatically said "no" to their parents going skiing (where they would have their accident).

lionhead

I feel Judy and Peter remember Alan and Sarah because when Alan and Sarah shouted that Judy and Peters parents cannot go for the skiing vacation Judy and Peter did not have a shocked look on their face instead they had a smile on their face.

Show generally

Question: Why in the kitchen at the Masoods' house do they have a 4 gang light switch? 1 would be for the main light. There are no under cabinet lights, the outside lights wouldn't be switched from here either. I'm an electrician and every time I see the switch it annoys me.

Chosen answer: Most likely a mistake by the set designers or it's a recycled set which already had the switch on (they just repaint and add other fittings).

Question: Tron fought for the users, so how was Clu able to make Tron serve him?

Chosen answer: Because Clu was given all the authority of the most important user, the creator, Flynn.

Phixius Premium member

But what did Clu do to Tron to make him serve him? Tron fought for the Users so it would make no sense for him to suddenly side with Clu who wanted to create the perfect system and help him in annihilating the ISO's.

Question: How did Riddick know the rain would bring the monsters?

Chosen answer: Earlier in the film when he arrived at the base, he could see the monsters from a distance when the rain came in. That's how he knew.

Gavin Jackson

Question: What do the soldiers have in their mouths during combat? Shortly after Miller's team disables the machine gun nest at Omaha Beach you can see Tom Sizemore take something out his mouth and drop it and later when Edith Piaf's song is playing he takes something out of a bag and puts it into his mouth again.

Answer: During landing scene he puts chewing tobacco in his mouth... later we see him take it out and then still later he takes more from the same pouch.

Chosen answer: They're chewing gum, or maybe tobacco.

Thomas Norris

Question: What happened to the Queen's Crown after she put it on top of that rock to go fishing? I do not recall it being shown in the movie after that, maybe they forgot about it or I missed something?

Chosen answer: They forgot about it. They also got her a new crown because the original one is lost.
