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: Vincent and Mia are shown smoking cigarettes inside Jackrabbit Slim's, but California has long been known to have some of the most restrictive anti-smoking laws in the US. While I'm aware that neither Vincent nor Mia was exactly law abiding, was smoking in restaurants in California still allowed at the time this film was made?
Question: Here's something I'm confused about, and I've only seen this movie twice now; Why didn't Dr. Schultz shake Candie's hand to seal the deal? Also, why was Stephen, and Django himself, so disrespectful to their own kind? I know Stephen was "raised" by white folk but Django? His comment to the doctor doesn't make much sense. I hope I explained these enough; I'm just a little confused about all this.
Question: After Rose rescues Jack from below decks, they run past Mr. Andrews, who's standing in front of a fireplace, leaning in towards it. What room is he in? It looks like the First Class Lounge, which deck plans show has a fireplace but it's towards the forward end of the ship, which means Mr. Andrews should have been leaning away from the fireplace since the incline was towards aft. I haven't been able to locate an answer to this.
Question: Where did he find time to get another clip to kill the hillbillies but no bullets to kill the sick friend in the shed? After his other friend's head was blown open?
Question: Early in the film, Rawhead Rex kills a farmer, but the farmer's pregnant wife gets Rex's attention and he goes toward the house. She runs upstairs to hide but the monster follows, cornering her in the bedroom. He reaches out to her, but then relents and spares her for some reason. The movie never really explains why. Can anyone explain why he let her live?
Question: From the end subplot, it seems that while the primary motivation for Jack Sparrow was the capture of Black Pearl, he did have a favourable view of Will (his father has tacitly supported Jack) and Elizabeth. Also, it seems that his aim was also to take revenge from Barbossa. In light of the above fact, I don't understand what was his plan when he first went to Barbossa and the pirates, with Will (when he was made unconscious by Will). And when he tries bargaining with Barbossa about leaving him on an island, while taking the Black Pearl with him. Did he really plan to turn Will in, at those points? If not, and if he is a good guy in support of Will, then what was his plan all along?
