Question: Why did Bruce fire Mr. Earl? It's not like he did anything bad such as affiliating with the mob or Ra's Al Ghul.
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 Bob is looking at a video, he stops at a figure of a woman. He then uses a switch and watches as the woman in the video turns into another woman. Why does he keep going back and forth between the two women?
Question: Why was Carter deliberately causing enough commotion to drive the other tenants out?
Question: Why was Little Bill so casual about seeing his wife cheat on him? I know he was furious, but he was still unusually calm, he just acted like he caught her holding hands with someone else, not like she was having sex with someone else. And why was his wife so casual about it too? She acted like she did nothing wrong.
Question: Why were the names of Paul Vario and Jimmy Burke changed for the movie to Paul Cicero and Jimmy Conway when no other names were changed? It's not as if someone's identity was being protected. I never understood that.
Question: Why does Manny make up excuses about his wife doing something when in reality she died?
Question: This question may sound dumb, but nevertheless. When Obi-Wan confronts Anakin on Mustafar, he says "Only a Sith deals in absolutes", and ignites his lightsaber, basically challenging Anakin. The question is, why? Obi-Wan's chosen his ways with the force, why can't Anakin? Most Jedi have already been killed throughout the galaxy, so Obi-Wan doesn't have much else to lose (except one of his only friends left that he's basically trying to discard in a duel). Anakin's trying to use the Dark Side to save Padme, so why can't Obi-Wan just let go of the fact that Anakin has chosen his ways, become a Sith (with Anakin seeing the better-good in it), and just let Anakin get on with his life?
Question: If The Joker wanted to get arrested, instead of engaging in a huge chase with the police where he shoots at them with a machine gun and an RPG, why didn't he just walk into the police station and turn himself in? I know he's theatrical, but he's very lucky he wasn't shot, which would've ruined his plan.
Question: In a deleted/extended scene Edward attacks Jacob when Jacob reveals through his thoughts that he imprinted on Renesmee. Minutes later when Jacob stops Sam and the wolf pack from killing her by showing them that he imprinted, Edward reveals this to the rest of his family but the way he says it makes it sound like he didn't already know. Is this a mistake since the previous scene was cut from the final version of the film?
Question: When Bond finds out Dimitri is going to the airport to fly to Miami, we see Bond leaving Dimitri's "wife" and heading off to the airport, with the intention of following Dimitri. The question is: Bond is seen in the Alpha Romero he won from Dimitri in a poker match, but then we see Bond in the back seat of a taxi. So why two vehicles? Dimitri is seen in a taxi himself.
