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: Were all Josie's class virgins? I get the impression that they were because in the sex education scene, where Anitie asks, "Are there any questions?" they all put their hands up.

Chosen answer: Given that Anita isn't a real sex ed teacher the class was probably confused by her bizarre little 'sex talk' and had some questions to ask her regarding that.

Question: I guess I wasn't paying much attention, but who is the girl he is talking to at the end about killing her parents? More so what I mean is, who are her parents, and when did he kill them? I have no idea what he is referencing and don't remember him killing a male and a female at any point.

Chosen answer: That's Irena Neski, daughter of Vladimir Neski, who Bourne assassinated for his first assignment. This is what Bourne was flashing back to in the hotel.

Question: Was there only one It? If It/Pennywise, was an alien or something, how come there wasn't more of them?

Chosen answer: There was only one "It". It was a single entity, not a species; a being from "outside" our universe, the living embodiment of fear and destruction.

Answer: It is a shapeshifter.

Question: When Commudus lies on the bed with Lucilla, was he going to kiss her?

Chosen answer: Depends on what you mean by "kiss". There are two ways one can describe his motives when he moves in on her. 1) he simply wants to give her a platonical good night kiss. 2) he wants a kiss that leads to something more. Commodus' signals toward Lucilla throughout the movie shows very strong passionable attraction from his side. Either way, whatever motives Commodus' "kiss" was, Lucilla despises her brother so much she leaves. And the conclusion, yes, he was going to kiss her.

Question: The new element created -- what is it? And why does Breast Padiumul end so quickly?

traian078

Chosen answer: He created a new element more powerful than palladium that doesn't end quickly - likely Vibranium, but that's never referenced in the movie. Palladium was burning out quickly because of the continuous use of the Iron Man suit.

Anastasios Anastasatos

Question: When Chick's pit crew insults Guido, he yells back something in Italian. Can someone translate to English?

Chosen answer: Guido says something like "Who do you think you're talking to? Who are you talking to?"

Question: What are the clothes and types of chucks Sodapop wears? I know they are plaid shirts but does anyone know the entire outfit when the boys are going to the rumble?

SodaPopLuver9

Chosen answer: Simple question, simple answer. Throughout the movie, and on the way to the rumble, he wears a (different colored) plaid shirt, white tee, blue jeans (on the day of the rumble he asks Darry "and where are my jeans?), and worn out tennis shoes.

Question: In the Thailand fight scene, the Thai fighter makes a big move and does a flying kick towards Topper, but Topper just looks at him and he stops just before connecting and falls to the floor. Is this from a specific movie?

Knever

Chosen answer: The whole fight scene in Thailand is supposed to be a homage to Rambo: First Blood Part Two, and the fighter falling is just typical ZAZ humour.

GalahadFairlight

Question: Why did the king and queen disappear when the king signed the contract? The deal was that Fiona will be saved from the curse if he did - but Fiona wasn't saved at all. Was the contract void from something?

Chosen answer: Rumpelstiltskin used a contract that 'made all their problems disappear'. He didn't reference any specific problem and the king and queen assumed it would cure the curse. However, it just makes the king and queen disappear, and since they have disappeared, they will no longer have any problems.

Question: What was the heinous metal contraption placed on Wade's head, prior to him being sprayed with hot wax, supposed to insinuate? The needle-like probes did not appear to puncture him. Was it simply for effect?

Chosen answer: It is simply a contraption to keep Wade in place so he doesn't move and the wax can be applied. It's also used to keep the wax out of his eyes, ears, nose and mouth.

Question: An interesting wind-up lute-type musical instrument is played at one point. Would such an instrument have existed at that time?

Chosen answer: By "Wind-up lute", I assume you mean the hurdy-gurdy. Certainly, instruments fitting the description of the hurdy-gurdy were around in the time when Robin Hood was set.

Madstunts

Question: Why was Hannibal Lecter so interested in Clarice's past? How would it benefit him?

Chosen answer: Knowing about her past gives him an advantage in how he can manipulate her - he understands her fears, weaknesses, strengths, and so on. A psychiatrist normally deconstructs a patient's psychological make-up to better understand and help them, but in Lecter's case, he uses this knowledge against his victims. However, as he learns about Clarice, he becomes sympathetic and protective toward her.

Answer: Also, he loves psychiatry and analyzing people. He is bored in his cell and this is a chance to do something he enjoys a lot.

Question: Why does Joey dislike Kat so much?

Chosen answer: They had sex once, but Kat didn't want to have sex with him again, and that made him angry because he was very narrow-minded and hormonal and wanted sex. It made matters worse that she also threatened to tell the cheering squad that his dick is small, which would ruin his chances of getting sex in the future.

Question: Did anyone know that Gordon didn't actually die? Or were Batman or Dent in on the plan?

Chosen answer: Given Dent's reaction after Gordon saves him it seems he had no idea. It seems by Batman's reaction in the armored car chase that he knew Gordon was the driver but it's not totally clear. Batman going to Gordon's house after his apparent death gives viewers the idea he also thought Gordon was dead. This may have just been Batman "playing to appearances" so to say. The way the chase ended seems to lead you to think Batman and Gordon had planned the whole thing together.

Question: What hits Jesse Ventura in the face/side of the neck right before the Predator blasts the giant hole in his torso? For a second or two after he sees the skunk, something wet appears to hit him in the face and daze him. I always wondered what that was supposed to be.

damienjakk

Chosen answer: The first thing that hits Blaine is supposed to be an edged weapon. It only appears on screen for 3 frames. The predator missed, the shot was supposed to take Blaine's face off, but he turned his head after seeing the cute wildlife. Instead the weapon hit his shoulder and took his ear off, you can see this added in the second frame. The weapon now a blur flashes past on the third frame. Realizing he missed, the Predator finishes Blaine off with the plasma caster.

Answer: The Predator shoots and kills the skunk that Ventura sees. It splatters on his neck and face. Then the Predator, seeing another animal in his heat vision, which is Ventura, shoots him.

That's not correct as if it was the blood of the slain creature it would not cause Blaine to reel back by the shock of getting hit with it. You can see the edged weapon in the first, second and third frame as it slices Blaine's ear and covers his neck and shoulder with his blood.

Question: When Frollo, has Ezmeralda, in his grip in the the church, he says "I was just imagining a rope around that beautiful neck" and she says "i know what you were imagining", what was he thinking?I assume its something sexual, but its a cartoon.

Chosen answer: It was most certainly sexual. Frollo's whole arc was his fight against his carnal desires (seeing Esmerelda dancing in the fire, sniffing her hair, etc). In order to maintain a G-rating, they couldn't be overtly sexual, which is why it's done through suggestion and subtext.

JC Fernandez

Question: Does anybody know why exactly Max wants the NOC list and if she gets it, what she is going to do with it?

marcelo_pacheco

Chosen answer: I don't think it's ever outright stated. But presumably she would use it to sell the names to other governments or extort the money from the US government to protect its assets.

JC Fernandez

Question: Why doesn't Jake show any kind of emotion when he watches his brother being cremated at the beginning? I realise that the brother was the higher achiever of the two, but to not show as much as a tear for him seems really odd to me.

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: He knew his brother was dead, had been dead for some time. It's likely he'd already done his grieving. Also, he's a marine; he's certainly seen a lot of his comrades fall. Death is part of his way of life.

Question: When the girl is going into the car wash, the sign right before she enters on the left advises her to put the car into neutral, but to make sure her foot is on the brake. Neutral would allow the car to advance through the automatic wash. Having the brake engaged would prevent the car from moving forward. They cancel each other out so what is the point?

shortdanzr Premium member

Chosen answer: Actualy it says she should put it in neutral and keep her foot OFF the brake.

Utopia (1) - S3-E11

Question: When Professer Yana is beginning to realise who he really is, he hears the voices of previous Masters. Could someone tell me where these audio clips were taken from?

Josman

Chosen answer: "Destroy him! Then you will give your power to me! is Roger Delgado in "The Daemons" (1971). The other is Anthony Ainley laughing evilly, not sure where that was from.
