Question: How accurate is the Normandy invasion scene? Was the real battle as dramatic as shown in the movie?

Answer: Definitely, the scene was praised for its historical accuracy by veterans and WWII experts. Even the landing crafts were real. Not on all beaches this kind of resistance was happening though, like Utah beach.

Question: Would making a sticky bomb using the method shown in the movie be possible in real life?

Answer: This was based on an actual method that had been developed during the war, though it proved to be too dangerous with uncontrolled explosions to be used effectively.

Answer: Yes, they could be possible. But making bombs like that are very dangerous to use so I wouldn't try it out. Its doubtful anything of the sorts were used during WWII, there already were pre-made sticky bombs around that worked a lot better.

Question: How is it known that Amanda was supposed to put the key around Adam's neck?

Answer: Since she was helping Jigsaw with his "game", chances are he told her to do it.

Question: Why did Walker destroy the money instead of letting the villain have it?

Question: How come Harry didn't want Buckbeak? I thought he liked Buckbeak?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: He did. But Hagrid loved him more. He was heartbroken when Buckbeak was taken from him in Prisoner Of Azkaban so Harry thought it best for him to go back to Hagrid.

THGhost

Answer: Harry didn't own Buckbeak or have any decision about what became of him, nor could he have taken care of him. After Sirius Black escaped, he kept Buckbeak hidden at his house, Black Manor. Harry saw Buckbeak when he visited his godfather. If Buckbeak had been returned to Hogwarts, he'd still be executed. Eventually, Buckbeak was secretly reintroduced into the Hogwarts hippogriff herd under the new name of Witherwings.

Question: Why doesn't Gandalf want Pippin to touch the crystal ball, whatever it's called? Does it give Sauron the ability to read minds?

Answer: In a word, yes. The palantír (as it is called) forms a mental link between itself and others like it, and a strong mind (such as Sauron) can manipulate weaker ones (as he did with Saruman and Denethor).

Question: Why didn't the tower guards spot Frank, and the Anglin brothers while they were in the water?

Answer: Because, in the context of the story, they are in pitch blackness. It is common film practice to illuminate night scenes that would otherwise be in total darkness, for the obvious reason that the audience needs to see what is happening; however, as far as the characters are concerned, there is no such light.

I meant during the real escape.

Same reason - it was dark.

Question: Why are the prisoners not allowed to talk to each other in Guantanamo bay? Is it to keep them from planning escapes?

Answer: The Guantanamo prisoners are all perceived terrorists, presumably working in coordination. It's essential that they not communicate with each other, so as to prevent them from leaking info about U.S. security.

Charles Austin Miller

How would they leak information about U.S. security? Most people in the Middle East have no knowledge about U.S. security.

Because people are occasionally released, and whether terrorists or not, may have information others would find valuable - about what goes on in Guantanamo Bay, if nothing else.

Jon Sandys

Answer: I guess it is more likely to be for the isolation feeling of not talking to anyone. It is like deprivation sleeping, some kind of psychological thing.

Show generally

Question: When talking to Alston, the police captain said he sought out a black officer who hasn't made rank because he's "got no rabbi" and therefore is likely "on the outside enough to be trusted"- what does the phrase "got no rabbi" mean?

Question: Do we know how Georgie actually dies? We see his arm get ripped off, are we to assume Pennywise dragged him down then ate him immediately or left him to bleed to death and then ate him or that he is also "floating"?

Answer: I would think that the shock of having ones arm ripped off would be more than enough to die from that injury alone. Georgie tries to crawl away so his death is not instantaneous. But bleeding to death is a very real probability. Could have been cardiac arrest.

Alan Keddie

Question: When Pennywise is eating Stan's face, why is it he never killed him? Stan was scared enough to be eaten and we saw Pennywise bite Georgie's arm off easily enough, so what took him so long with Stan?

Answer: Its possible It was already weakened by the others not being afraid and Stan was his only source for power.

lionhead

Answer: I think the reason he didn't kill Stan straight away is because well this I my therory but I think pennywise was trying to torture the losers so maybe that why he didn't kill stan straight away.
