Question: How in the world was Kiddo allowed to bring a sword that length onto a plane and have it right beside her at her seat?

dan coakley..

Chosen answer: Tarantino has said that he intends Kill Bill to exist in a slightly different world than the real one. In this world weapons are more commonplace and can be freely carried. If you notice, on the plane there are actually little holders on all the seats for people to put their swords into.

Question: At the start of the film it says "the 4th film by Quentin Tarantino", I know there's Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown and now this, but what about "From Dusk Till Dawn"? Should Kill Bill not be his 5th film?

dan coakley..

Chosen answer: This is actually the 4th film directed by Quentin Tarantino. While he did write From Dusk Till Dawn (also True Romance, between Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction), he did not direct the film.

Question: At the start of the movie we see McClane arriving on the plane and he has his gun on him, would a detective really be allowed to carry his gun on board a plane?

dan coakley..

Chosen answer: Yes, at the time this film was made; McClane would only need to have his badge and credentials verified by airport security.

Question: When Cal decides to bribe Murdoch with money to guarantee a spot on a lifeboat, what was the point of even doing so? Was it just because of the "women and children first" policy? Being in first class would seem to put women, children, AND men at a higher priority.

Chosen answer: "Women and children first" means just that, regardless of class. Cal had to make sure he would get a spot instead of some third class passenger.

MasterOfAll

New this week Answer: Cal would have had to get on after all the women and children (first class second and third) He probably knows the lifeboats would all be full by then so he tries to bribe and get on one before it is too late.

Question: What breed of horses are used for Arthur and his knights? It looks like Galahad is using a different breed of horse than everyone else.

Chosen answer: Most of them are Friesian or Friesian crosses but but some are Andalusian.

Question: I've seen this movie over 100 times and I know every single word, but when I watched it a few days ago on Netflix I noticed straight away that the talking sounded completely different and some words where changed, in the cold turkey scene Renton was supposed to say "i don't feel the sickness yet but it's in the POST, that's for sure", but on the Netflix version he says "I don't feel the sickness yet but its in the MAIL, that's for sure", why was this changed and did all the actors have to re-do the whole film in audio?

dan coakley..

Chosen answer: I can only assume it would have been done for the benefit of international audiences. To Brits, 'post' is commonly used as a noun describing any item received that was posted in the mail system, rather than just as a verb to describe the act of sending something in the mail. Typical small changes of word meanings that makes perfect sense to someone in Britain may easily confuse a viewer from another country.

Question: What exactly happened to Vicki Vale between movies? She's mentioned a couple times in this one, but it's never said what happened.

Quantom X

Chosen answer: The same thing that happens to all the women in Bruce Wayne's life who learn his secret: She eventually realized that she would always be second to Batman, and never know if he'd make it home each night, so she left.

Question: Who is Max Shreck from the comics, or is he even from the Batman comics?

Quantom X

Chosen answer: Shreck was a character created for the movie. The part was originally intended to be Harvey Dent, and the explosion at the end would scar him, paving the way for Two Face in a third movie, but the filmmakers opted for an original character instead. The name comes from a German actor who played Count Orlok in "Nosferatu".

Question: Why must Penguin be in cold to survive?

Question: Which episode is it that they're going to be shutting down 3 fire stations, and at the end, they decided to turn #5 into a museum?

Quantom X

Question: After she falls, what exactly makes Selyna Kyle go nuts? And what is she trying to do to her apartment?

Quantom X

Answer: The film keeps it ambiguous. There are two ways to look at it. Scenario A- She literally died and is brought back to life by the alley-cats somehow, adapting some of their traits. Or... Scenario B- The trauma of falling and sustaining a head-injury, along with her paranoia after Schreck tried to kill her, has driven her mad, and she uses her connection with cats to build a new persona. (Which is supported by the fact that all the things she claims "kills" her with each of her "nine lives" wouldn't actually have killed her. Ex. Her one fall is broken by the kitty-litter truck. Max doesn't hit her in any vital organs when he shoots her. Etc.) Her destroying her apartment is her lashing out at all the things she used to hold dear- her vision of a normal life, etc. It's symbolic of her purging the past and embracing the future. (Plus, oftentimes when people throw fits, they'll smash stuff up).

Chosen answer: She just died, and came back to life. The shock drove her mad. She really isn't doing anything but destroying it.

Question: If Reverse Flash can't kill Barry in an unaltered time line because he will mess up his own past, then why is he trying to kill him in the beginning of the movie before the Flashpoint change? He traps Flash in the Flash museum and places explosives on him with intent to kill.

Quantom X

Chosen answer: Reverse Flash knows he'll be wiped out of existence, but he doesn't care. He's so obsessed with killing Flash in a satisfying way that he's willing to sacrifice his own life to do it. That's why he stays completely calm when the Flash moves the charge to his shoulder and tells him he'll die too. This is further evidenced by the fact that he didn't care that Aquaman's WMD would kill him along with everyone else.

Matty Blast

Which still makes no sense... because then why doesn't he just go back in time and kill him?

Question: Is this supposed to be a sequel or a reboot? It takes place as if it's a sequel, kinda like the Hulk movies, but there are so many changes and differences it's like a reboot... like the Hulk movies. So sequel or reboot?
