Question: Given that the whole break between Redford and Pitt is over Redford's willingness to sacrifice people [even Pitt's girlfriend is given to the Chinese] what explains Redford's sudden change of heart and willingness to risk all to save Pitt AND his girlfriend?
Question: In the movie Danny McKnight is built up somewhat as being the guy who seems to almost ignore some of his surroundings. Many times he's shown just casually walking around exposed with bullets flying past him. Did he or would anyone in any sort of battle like this actually behave in that way?andyog88
Question: When Andy tells the warden how Tommy knows who really murdered his wife, the warden sympathetically says that Tommy made up the story to impress Andy, and he's surprised that Andy believed it. He also says they'd never be able to find that Elmo guy, and even if they did, he'd never confess. Isn't the warden essentially admitting he thinks that Andy is not guilty? Otherwise he'd just say 'I don't believe you, I know you were the one who killed your wife.'.Brian Katcher
Question: Was Essex Corp the company that cured Wade's cancer in the film and tried to weaponize him? The end credits scene from "X-Men: Apocalypse" (which is set in 1983) introduces us to Essex Corp, where we see a mysterious business man (who reminds me of The Recruiter in "Deadpool") take a vial of Weapon X's blood and place it with the others in his briefcase. "Deadpool" is set in 2016. By then, Essex Corp would be very functional with experimenting on mutants (as shown in "Deadpool"). So I'm just wondering if there's a connection there, esp with Essex Corp and Mister Sinister apparently playing a much larger role in future films to come. Also taking into account that Ajax (Francis) reveals to Wade that they aren't making him into a superhero, but a "super-slave." This, along with manipulating genes to make them superior, are aspects Mister Sinister is known to specialize in.MrDrake117
Question: What made room 1408 so special? That it's numbers added up to 13, and it was on the 13th floor? Wouldn't that also make room 1426 evil as well? Or was the room just inherently evil?
