Question: What's the name of the song playing in the background when Holmes and Watson fight with Dredger and the other two men in Reordan's flat? I looked everywhere, but I can't find it: it's not on the official soundtrack, either. Also, in the same scene, Watson starts off battling two men while Holmes takes Dredger, but later there is only one fighting with Watson. Where is he?benjyrabbit
Question: Outside Madison and Haig, a gypsy corners our dynamic duo and tells Watson his future. I figured out that Holmes was setting Watson up when I saw her in the crowd at the start of the 'crowded alley' scene, moving quickly to get into position outside Madison and Haig. But how does Watson realise that Holmes has set him up? He never saw the gypsy at the start, and all Holmes says at the time is 'Doilies'. Am I just being really slow?benjyrabbit
Question: At the end of the first Iron Man, Nick Fury appears and tells Stark about the Avengers Initiative. Then, in The Incredible Hulk, Stark makes a cameo and his conversation with Ross makes it seem like Stark's fully on board with Fury and S.H.I.E.L.D. But, during this movie, Stark says he refused Fury's offer and at the end is not even a full member, certainly not someone Fury would send as a representative. Is the Hulk movie supposed to take place after Iron Man III? Did something happen between Stark and Fury between I and II, or did the production crew simply forget/neglect Stark's cameo in the Hulk film?
Question: I noticed the number twenty thousand was mentioned twice (Anakin's midi-chlorian count and the amount of money that Qui-gon has while on Tattooine). Is there any trivia/meaning behind it?
Question: On the Interceptor, when Jack swings back from the Black Pearl, he asks Elizabeth where the medallion is, and in reply she tries to slap him, saying 'Wretch!' Why? What has he ever done to her? Okay, Jack used her to escape from Norrington and his men, but he saved her life before that, so it's only fair.benjyrabbit
Question: When Elizabeth tries to board the Black Pearl at Tortuga, Jack is extremely unwilling to let her on. I know there's the element of what he has done to Will, but why doesn't he just let her on, and trade her as one of the 99 souls he needs? I mean, if he can leave Will on the Flying Dutchman to serve for a hundred years in his place, why can't he do it to Elizabeth?benjyrabbit
Question: In At World's End, Jack and Beckett are hammering out a deal on the Endeavour, and Jack says Beckett can have Barbossa, Will, Pintel, Ragetti etc. but fails to mention Elizabeth, at which point Beckett asks, 'And what about Miss Swann?' and Jack answers, 'Of what interest is she to you?' Does this mean he still likes Elizabeth (even though she left him to die in Dead Man's Chest, and their relationship in this film is obviously frosty)? Did I miss something? Is Jack pulling some trick?benjyrabbit
Question: When Slugworth is trying to bribe Charlie into bringing him the Everlasting Gobstopper, he says that his reward will be "10,000 of these" as he shows Charlie a bunch of money. Does anyone know what "those" were and how much "they" were worth? They look too big to be American dollars.Paul Pepiton
Question: This question is more based on the soundtrack of the movie. After comparing the soundtrack CD to the music scores in the movie, I noticed there's some moments where the music is only heard in the movie, such as when we're first introduced to the floating mountains or the flute music that plays when Jake learns to ride on the direhorse. My questions are: Why were these left out of the soundtrack? And where can I find similar tracks to these? Not exact tracks, in case I can't find them, but similar music.
Question: Wouldn't it have made more sense in having Hickox and the two German Basterds pose as a camera man and his assistants instead of wearing Nazi officer uniforms when they met Bridget in the bar? I would think that an officer would draw more attention than civilians. Civilians wouldn't have been that strange a sight in a bar in France, would it? And if they were asked any questions about their purpose for being in France, Hickox could have been more convincing since he was the film buff. The other two could have played along as Hickox did most of the talking anyway, or am I missing something?
