Question: How much time does this movie cover? I ask because when Sykes is being interrogated, he says he was questioned about Helen Kimble's murder a year ago. And Nichols says that Lentz died last summer, but Richard saw him at the fundraiser the same night his wife died. Is this a mistake or is there something I'm missing?Brad
Question: Throughout the film, Hugh Stamp's accent keeps changing, where exactly is he supposed to be from?
Question: Throughout the movie, Ash does a few weird things, such as that jogging motion that he makes in the cockpit and the "poor baby" expression he gives Ripley just before he attacks her. Aside from driving home the fact that he's an android, do these actions have any meaning? (Unless he's being sarcastic, the expression doesn't seem fitting, since he doesn't seem to feel any particular empathy toward humans.) Also, what causes him to suddenly start bleeding? And finally, why does he try to stuff a rolled-up magazine down Ripley's throat? My interpretation is that he's trying to implant her with an embryo, since he also starts making weird gagging noises at the same time; but if that's the case, where/when did he get it?
Question: Do the film's writers/creators ever explain why the machines choose to use humans as a power source over other, more efficient power sources such as nuclear power? (Nuclear power would require infinitely less maintenance and produce an infinitely higher power yield).
Question: In the final scene, Jules calls Pumpkin "Ringo", but nobody ever said his name. How did Jules know that his name was "Ringo"? Actually, nobody says his name in the entire film, including Amanda Plummer's character, Hunnybunny/"Yolanda" or Pumpkin/"Ringo". Then Jules miraculously refers to him as "Ringo" when Pumpkin counts to three.chikid
Question: Why was the commander of Nest not allowed to see Optimus during the video conference? He was high enough in rank and security clearance to be entrusted with seeing Prime for himself, wasn't he?
