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: What happened then to Prince Charming or Fairy Godmother? In Shrek 2, they did mention that it was the Fairy Godmother who cursed Fiona. So how come Prince Charming never rescued her instead of Shrek (since he was never born in Rumpelstiltskin's timeline)? The King and Queen may have disappeared but at least Prince Charming could have still saved her.
Question: I have two questions about this film. Firstly, was the black woman Hushpuppy was dancing with at the strip bar her biological mum? And secondly, were the huge pigs (whatever they are called) that appear at the end really there. Or were they simply imagined by Hushpuppy? Because the other kids responded to them, but they seemed way too oversized to be real.Gavin Jackson
Question: In the scene where Simon and his men overpower Felix Little of the Federal Reserve and continue to the elevator, what are the German lines being spoken by Simon Gruber? It sounds like "Danke well" when he pushes the drugged Mr. Little to the floor, and when he is in the elevator removing his tie his line sounds like "Ich biete". If someone knows the German words being spoken in these lines, your input would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Question: Does anybody knows the song and where I can find it that plays near the end of the movie where the Dutchman's crew are coming to Jack and Elizabeth to make Will the new captain? I'm talking specifically about the song with people singing in it (so not purely instrumental), you can hear it loud and clear in the shot where one of the fishermen holds the open chest for the heart.
Question: After the scene in which the death eaters attack Harry and Ginny, everyone runs back to The Burrow which is being burnt down. My question is why does everyone look so sad? It's not like they're going to be homeless. They could have used the spell aguamenti to extinguish the flames, and any further damage could be fixed with the spell reparo. I've heard of fiendfyre in the Harry Potter series, but this just looked like normal fire to me.
Question: Verbal is presented as a person who has worked with Keaton presumably for some time to have earned his trust. But since Verbal is really Keyser Soze, this would mean that Soze had been "underground" as Verbal for quite awhile establishing his relationship with Keaton. Can we really expect that Soze would have been "playing the part of Verbal" for the length of time, presumably years, he would need to in order to establish a bond of trust with Keaton? And what could have been Soze's original motivation? It couldn't have been that he foresaw this particular situation that he was going to need a criminal of Keaton's caliber to help pull off. The relationship with Keaton would have had to have begun long before Keyser Soze would have known that he needed Keaton to assist in pulling off this particular job. So why establish the relationship with Keaton in the first place?
Question: In the scene when they kill Bret, Jules gives his Bible quote and they both shoot Bret down, then the screen goes red and scene ends. I see this whenever its on Cable and on my DVD, yet I have seen a clip on the internet when a guy runs out from the bathroom and shoots at Jules and Vincent, completely missing them, and they kill him too. Is this some deleted scene? Was this extra scene shown in theaters? And why was it removed?Carl Missouri
Question: What kind of clothing is that being worn by the character Lock-Nah, the "enforcer" of Imhotep's cult and (apparently) Ardeth Bay's nemesis? He's obviously supposed to be African, but is that a specific type of garb or did they just make up an African-themed wardrobe for the movie? And does anybody know:A) What kind of sword it is that he always carries and fights with?B) What is that big dagger(?) he throws at Ardeth in the O'Conells' mansion? C) At the Oasis of Ahm Shere, what language is Lock-Nah speaking when he shouts for the soldiers to "Fan out! Eyes open! Guns up!" when thunder starts rumbling?
Question: In the opening to the movie, when the Army of Anubis first appears, you see a man fall headless and Anubis himself (or at least what appears to be the Army's leader) steps on the body, sweeps his weapon over it, and howls into the air. What is that weapon? Is it real or invented for the movie? The same character wields the same weapon later when the Army faces the Magi, and Imhotep wields the same weapon against Rick O'Connell's dual axes in their fight before the Scorpion King shows up. Any idea? I gotta know what that weapon is. (00:03:50 - 01:45:55)
