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: What do the soldiers have in their mouths during combat? Shortly after Miller's team disables the machine gun nest at Omaha Beach you can see Tom Sizemore take something out his mouth and drop it and later when Edith Piaf's song is playing he takes something out of a bag and puts it into his mouth again.
Question: What happened to the Queen's Crown after she put it on top of that rock to go fishing? I do not recall it being shown in the movie after that, maybe they forgot about it or I missed something?
Question: Since the Moon is not gone, just broken into pieces, wouldn't this still provide the same mass, and hence the same gravitational attraction? Hard to see how the tidal effect would destroy the Earth without physically removing the Moon's mass. Makes a nice visual, but seems to fall flat on the science.
Question: I am curious why there is no lag whatsoever in communications between the Odyssey and Ground Control. We are told that the Tet is initially pretty far out in space, and even fairly close in to Earth there would still be noticeable delays. This instantaneous communication would seem to require some sort of faster-than-light system, which physics says is impossible. So, is there an explanation or is this a mistake? Seems odd to me given the care taken to design the drones and bubble craft.
Question: I have seen early concept art works of this movie. Was Maximus really supposed to be black, but had his color changed to white?
Question: What did they mean in their meeting about no medicine on the mission?
Question: In the scene where the American 82nd Airborne is storming the river bank at Nijmegen, there is a brief shot of one of the German defenders, who looks quite startingly like a puberescent boy. Anyone know whether this assumption is correct, and if so, what's the background to this story?
Question: Did Tommy die? If so, did his body get burned up?
Question: Rosalyn twice references the book "Power of Intention." Wasn't that first published around 2005?
Question: At the beginning after Callahan has killed two guys who shot at him, the third is running away. In real life, would he have faced charges for this? The first two were self defense but the 3rd guy was running away. He is not the type of person to deny the shooter was fleeing and not a threat.
Question: I was reading the mistakes for "Hellboy" and I saw one that completely blew me away: In the scenes down in the disused train tunnels, Hellboy comes out of one with his massive arm now on his left and he's holding a gun in his right. How could the make-up people make such a huge mistake, and how come Ron Perlman, the actor who played Hellboy, not notice the difference?
