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: When Riddick is in cryostasis on his way to Mecca, he has a vision of a Furyan woman telling him about the 'crime' that has happened in Furya. She proceeds to walk towards Riddick and we get a panoramic view of thousands, or perhaps millions of tombstones, presumably or rather obviously, of Furyans. The question is: Who went to Furya and buried all those dead Furyans? Who bothered to bury each one and put a tombstone on each dead body? Did Furya's neighboring planet send an expedition to Furya so they could bury the entire population of Furya? Kind of pointless, don't you think? Did they bring with them all those tombstones or were they just quarried from a nearby mine?
Question: What is the instrumental piece that's playing somewhere before the end, when Charlotte sees the picture of the child they're about to adopt, the cleaning lady tells Miranda that what she did was "love", and Smith tells Samantha he loves her?Nekyia
Question: I just wanted to check before I post it as a mistake. When Morvin and Foon are fixing the Host, Foon says she spent 5000 credits on phone calls and that they'll never be able to pay it off. At the end of the episode, the Doctor tells Mr. Copper that he has 50,000,056 credits on his card which he says is equal to £1,000,000. According to this calculation, the 5000 credits that Foon spent, divided by 50.000056 = £99.999888. Surely even though they work on a milk market they'd be able to pay that off easily, wouldn't theyProfessor Lazarus
Question: When the woman is talking to her daughter on her cell phone, we hear the woman on the other end of the line say something like, "I see in calculus". Does this have any deeper meaning in the movie? Most people we see that are affected act strange, but none talk of seeing things.
Question: I don't understand the connection between "the section" and the human trafficking/child porn network that was mentioned throughout the films. It is my understanding that the section was simply a secret covenant that leaks political secrets. But, some members seem to be involved in human trafficking and child porn (and where sexual predators and sadists themselves) but I don't see what part the section had in it. Can someone explain?lionhead
Question: I have noticed more than one female character (Asajj Ventress and, later in the show, Ahsoka Tano) wearing pieces of cloth on their belts that hang between their legs. I have seen this on females in other shows/movies/games as well. Does it serve some purpose or is it simply decorative?
Question: When Hobbs realizes that Dom and Brian left him with an empty vault, Hobbs has a flashback of Tego and Rico loading the real vault onto a truck. My question: was that really a flashback (did he really see it take place and forget?) or was it like Dom's image of Letty's death when he and Mia are at the crash site in Fast Four and not 100% accurate, since he didn't know what Letty's killer looked like yet?
Question: While the triplets distract Fergus and the lords with the dead frog they use to form a bear shadow, one of them also roars into a pot to imitate a bear. It that a reference to "A Bug's Life" (1998) when Dot screeches like a bird into a horn while she, Flick, and the girl scout ants fly the fake bird?
Question: Where do humans get their power from, like electricity? Because there is no sun and I know they're like a big furnace thing, but surely there are no resources left because there is no sun. Also, life cannot be sustained without sunlight, so the film is flawed. But I still love it.
Question: In the car racing scene between Stuntman Mike, Kim, Zoe, and Abby, I am confused as to why the car chase lasted so long. Couldn't Kim have simply slowed down gradually and shot Stuntman Mike? I mean, we hear her in an earlier scene talking about her gun and we see her shoot him after stopping. Why keep driving fast with your friend in danger and mess up the car that isn't yours?sunfox35
