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 Gollum is wrestling with the orc, does he happen to be at just the right angle for the Ring to fall out of his pocket, or was it the Ring's choice to leave him, as in the book? Also, why does Bilbo just leave Gollum in the cave if he recognizes that Gollum is "miserable, lost, and alone?" Why not take him along and give him to Gandalf, then have Gandalf take him away so he could be with company, yet not hinder their mission?
Question: I have two questions. Firstly, who shot Virgil and Morgan. I'm guessing it was the Mexican speaking guy from the opening who we saw hiding during the whole scene, but I'm not sure. And secondly, why did Wyatt pick up McMasters' red sash? Was there a reason?
Question: What does Sofie Fatale say in Japanese on her cellphone? Just before Sofie Fatale and the rest of the crew are about to enter the Japanese nightclub, there's a flashback in which she's speaking Japanese into her cellphone during the wedding rehearsal fight. I know it's probably not important for the story, but was always curious: what is she saying? She starts with Mushi mushi, which is all that I recognise.
Question: When the train on fire reverses back into town, the fire bell is rung. A couple of blokes running out of the saloon are yelling out that the train's on fire. How did they know what was on fire?
Question: Are there any clues throughout the movie hinting that the old woman is the devil?
Question: In season 7 episode 10 we are introduced to a vampire that other vampires fear, called the Turok-Han. Buffy finally destroys the only one released after a long fight, but still gets many cuts and bruises whilst doing so. In the final episode of season 7 when all the slayers are activated, one slayer is fighting more than one Turok-Han without a problem. Why do they find it easier once all the slayers have been activated?
Question: Roy and Chuck Frechette are shooting the breeze about their teenagers, and Frank is a little floored. Right after Frechette says "Summer's The WORST" then Frank does a quick impression, with some kind of European accent maybe "It's Crazy...it's Wild..." and Roy says "He sounds just like him!" What are they talking about? Who is Frank doing an impression of?
Question: In this episode JD, Elliot and Turk all have a patient that dies at the end. JD's dies from old age/refuses treatment. Elliot's dies due to the risky nature of the treatment given, if I remember correctly, however I never understood why Turk's patient dies. He's there for surgery, during surgery the surgeons find something, but they never say what it is. The young man is prepped for surgery again in a late scene and Turk tells him what is happening but we don't hear it. He then dies on the operating table. What was it they found inside the patient? And why did he die so quickly when undergoing surgery for it?
Question: What exactly is the re-education that people keep talking about?
Question: What year does this movie's climax take place in? Because a mutant wearing a mouth gag with ginger hair can be seen as one of Stryker's prisoners, and this prisoner is meant to be Banshee. However, in Days of Future Past, it is mentioned that Banshee died at some point before 1971 due to experimentation, I realize there are other continuity issues within this "canon" and that some of them have been rectified if not completely erased from the timeline, but I love Banshee and am just trying to connect each of his appearances. It makes sense that he would be a prisoner of Stryker's since Stryker and Trask were working together in 1971, but only if the end of Origins takes place before then.
Question: In the first film, when Jacob is jabbed in the eye before falling down it's his left eye, now in part 2 it shows he's missing his right eye instead. Am I correct, or am I confused, or is it shown from a different angle?
