Question: Can someone explain the exact function of the ARC reactor in Tony's chest, because it seems to vary from movie to movie? Sometimes it powers the magnet keeping the shrapnel out of his heart (1,3 & Avengers), which is why he throws it away after surgery. However sometimes it appears to be powering his heart directly (1), yet he can go for short periods of time without it (2). Mainly, however, isn't it required to power the suit (1 & 2). The Iron Monger needed one (1), Whiplash & War Machine both needed one (2), but Tony's suits in 3 & Avengers appear to work even when he's not in them?
Question: This makes no sense at all to me. Exactly how did Chris survive her very first encounter with Jason? She tells Rick about how he grabbed her by the ankles and was dragging her off when she fainted from fear and then woke up in her room at home. What exactly happened in the time in between? It's been mentioned that Jason raped Chris after dragging her away or at least he attempted to rape her. The Jason character does not rape. Period. Are we really supposed to believe that the murderous Jason just suddenly felt bad for her and brought her back to her home of his own free will? (00:48:30 - 00:51:45)blonddude207
Question: In the 2009 Star Trek movie, the young kirk is driving his step father's car, and passes someone about his age on the road, Johnny. Who is Johnny and what is his significance to the storyline?
Question: It is stated that Maximus from "Tangled" briefly appears somewhere in the movie. Can someone please point out which scene he can be found in? I also know where the dinosaur from "Meet the Robinsons" appears. If there are any other characters from some of the previous Disney animated films who make brief appearances, can someone please identify where to find them? (01:41:00)
Question: Question regarding the search for Annie's parents: When Mr. Warbucks launches the nationwide search for Annie's parents using the best legal and investigative minds of the day, should they not have discovered that said parents died in a fire? The authorities somehow knew there was an abandoned child and where to send the parents' "junk", and Miss Hannigan was informed of the deaths. Obviously, someone knew Annie was at the orphanage and whose child she was. How did Warbucks' top notch team of private eyes miss that?
Question: During the scene where the kids are eating in the diner and they are talking about the train crash, you can see Joe's father getting out of his police car across the street at the Auto Sales lot. I've noticed in movies that they don't usually have a major character appear in a scene without a reason, even in the background. So it makes me wonder if they cut out some interaction with Joe's father in the diner, or if this diner scene was originally intended to appear at a different point in the film, such as when Joe's father visits the car lot when the owner is complaining about things missing from his cars. I've watched my DVD many times, and I only just noticed this. Now I'm dying to know.juliebellp107
