Question: When the remains of the Enterprise crew on the newly spaceworthy Franklin approach the swarm of attacking fighters they broadcast a song to disrupt the fighter network. What was the song and by what musical group? (The results reminded me of the effect of yodeling in Attack of the Martians).
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 was 47's assassination of Belicoff covered up so successfully? There were plenty of witnesses to it and if those same witnesses heard about Belicoff giving a speech or doing something else, they could say that was impossible because they saw him die.
Question: In this episode, Sam leaps into Cam, a teenager with braces. So when Sam looks in his reflection, he sees the braces, even though he's not wearing any himself. Someone submitted a mistake from one episode when Sam's reflection is wearing glasses, even though Sam isn't. While braces aren't as easy to put on or take off as glasses, they're still not part of the body (such as a zit), so shouldn't Sam have braces himself, the same way he'd have glasses on when leaping into somebody? Or should it not be considered a mistake that the reflection is wearing glasses and Sam isn't?
Question: What exactly did Fredo do to help Roth (that led to the assassination attempt at Lake Tahoe)? Fredo says ‘I never knew they would try to kill you'. Ok, but what was going on exactly then? What did he think was going on? What *was* going on? All we know is Michael's room got shot up and Fredo betrayed him, leading to the event.
Question: When Kurt Russell gets pulled over by the sheriff, the sheriff gets shot and begins to radio dispatch. Dispatch then asks the sheriff what his 20 (location) is. Kurt Russell grabs the radio and also does not tell dispatch where they were, but dispatch says they are on the way. How can they be on the way if they don't know his location?
Question: What does Fee-lie say to the elf lady when he's leaving her to go to the Lonely Mountain? He tells her he's something and she says she doesn't know what that means.
Question: Doc is a scientist right? The DeLorean had a ruptured fuel line and needed gas which, as Doc pointed out, was unavailable at the time. Surely he knew how to distill booze to make ethanol? (There was plenty of whiskey around at the time). I mean, they've used it to power cars in Mexico for ages. Why didn't Doc suggest this?
Question: Why there was no invitation for Dr. Alan Grant and Ellie, and what were they doing at that time?
Question: So what happens to the past you when you're sent back from the future? If 30 years ago you were sitting at the dinner table with your family would you just poof away and disappear? I'm stuck on these two dimensions and being alive in both scenarios. Another example it's 2000 and I'm 10 it's 2030 and I'm 30 if I was sent back to be killed when 30 what happens to 10 year old me at that point in life?
Question: They try to stop the runaway train by deploying another train in front of it and continuously braking. Instead of having a man come in from a helicopter, why not just have a man jump from the train in front onto the runaway train? (00:40:00 - 00:45:00)
