Question: At the end of the movie the town clock that was removed from the train station is shown stored in a basement just as the basement floods. The clock is seen to still be working, but how, given that there was no one there to wind it? As the clock was made during the first world war it would be mechanical, not battery powered.Blair Howden
Question: The Secret Service Agents rush up the mansion stairs to the bedroom grabbing the stair banister multiple times without gloves. Why didn't the police pick up their fingerprints? And where did they get the crowbar? Is that standard issue for agents?
Question: At the end of the Chamber of Secrets, Harry gives Lucius Malfoy the diary, showing him that he knows it was him. In the Half Blood Prince we see Dumbledore at his desk mulling over Tom Riddle's destroyed diary - is this an error, or have I missed something? Was it not given back to Malfoy at the end of Chamber of Secrets?brdwyguy
Question: Why type of propulsion system does the Endurance use? It took 2 years for them to reach Saturn from Earth. Once they're in the other galaxy, the ship appears to travel between planets in mere hours/days. Also, it appears that the smaller shuttle craft was launched from Earth on a Saturn V type rocket, but later when leaving the surface of other planets, they have no such system.
Question: When Roz says people think she's a bitch, we can't hear the word bitch. Was the word intentionally mouthed by her or was it muted by the movie's editor? From her body language, facial expression and lip movement, it looks like she actually said it, and possibly yelled it. But why would they want to mute it when it's rated PG-13 and there are worse words said in the movie? And why would they mute it instead of doing something that makes more sense like cutting out or changing the word? And why would Roz refrain from swearing when it's just her and Dewey in the car?
