Answer: In Mr Bean animated there is an episode where you see Mr Bean as a young boy and had the teddy then and he also liked mini cars. There is another Animated episode where Mr Bean discovers a UFO full of people who look just like him and they each have their own individual stuffed toy.

Question: After a fellow soldier throws his boots, Robbie walks ahead to retrieve them and discovers a large group of murdered children in, I presume, school or church uniforms. Is this moment based on a real historical event of WWII?

Chosen answer: Not as such. The only systematic massacre of civilians in the Dunkirk campaign was in the Flemish village of Vingkt, where the German 377th Infantry Regiment had fought a fierce battle against the Belgian Chasseurs Ardennais. On 27/28 May 1940, the Germans took revenge on the civilian population and shot some 40 men and boys in the village, including eight elderly men who had sheltered in a convent's cellars. They argued that anyone found in a building the Chasseurs had used was liable for execution. The film exaggerates for dramatic effect - dead schoolboys are more poignant than dead old men - but there is a core of truth in the story.

Question: Is Mr. Arnolds the man that was played by Samuel Jackson? If so, why was he at the power shed?

Jack Kaltenbach

Chosen answer: Yes, he's the same character. He went to the shed to turn the power back on initially, but when he didn't return, and the power didn't come back on, Ellie Sattler then went. She discovered Arnold had been killed by the raptor.

Question: Why is it that the Marines wore red in the first two films, but they wear blue in this one?

Chosen answer: It was done to show how much influence and control the East India Trading company had over the Britsh Navy/Marines in the series. To demonstrate how the East India Trading company "owned" the British naval forces.

Bruce Minnick

Question: I was watching some of the movie on TV. In the scene with Peter's birthday dinner, when Peter says he has been busy, Harry asks "Taking pictures of Spider-man?" instead of "Taking pictures of your friend?", like on the DVD I have. Is there any reason why this was changed?

Chosen answer: Both lines are said in the movie. When Harry first inquires he says "Taking pictures of Spider-Man?" casually. Later in the scene he says "Taking pictures of your friend?" in a rather irritated tone.

Question: Are Todd and Mrs. Lovett lovers? At one point she mentions rumpled bedsheets.

Chosen answer: Mrs. Lovett is secretly in love with Todd. However there is no indication he has any romantic feelings for her. He is entirely focused on revenge, much to Mrs. Lovett's disappointment.

Question: When Juno first meets the Lorings, she mentions that she saw them in the Pennysaver, and, suddenly, Vanessa looks very shocked. Why?

Brad Premium member

Chosen answer: Because she is wealthy and she considers the Pennysaver to be "beneath" her. Their adoption request was submitted to a syndicate and that syndicate printed the request in all of its publications, the Pennysaver being one of them; Vanessa did not choose to appear in the Pennysaver.

Question: When Will Smith enters the abandoned apartment looking for survivors, etc., he opens a cupboard to find some Spam. When he opens the cupboard, there is a magazine cover saying "Dogs can come out at dusk". I have two questions. One, why can the dogs come out at dusk and the infected humans can't? And two, when the encounter with Fred occurs, and the dogs are waiting for the strip of light to fade so they can kill Robert, is that the reason why the infected human hiding in the shadows could not come out? Because they cannot come out at dusk?

Chosen answer: The newspaper page says "Infected dogs can come out at dusk. Stay in the light". My guess is that dogs can come out sooner because their physiology is just different. You're absolutely correct that it is the reason the dogs are out and the infected are hiding in the building waiting for the last ray of light to fade. The only reason the newspaper clipping exists is to set up this scene.

Question: Near the beginning of the film, why is Woody so shocked to learn of Andy's birthday party? Shouldn't he have a general idea, if not know outright, when Andy was born?

Cubs Fan Premium member

Chosen answer: If you'll notice, when he tells the other toys, he says that the party has been "moved to today". The other toys then mention that it isn't Andy's birthday yet and Woody says that they were probably trying to have the party before they moved to another house. Woody knows when the birthday is, but the party is not being held on Andy's birthday.

Question: What was the significance of Rex's cameraman being in on the assassination plot?

Cubs Fan Premium member

Chosen answer: It's not stated in the film, but if I had to make an educated guess I'd say his job is to make sure the news channel doesn't get any footage of any of the terrorist agents or the window the shots come from.

Buffy Vs. Dracula - S5-E1

Question: In one scene, Spike tells Riley that he personally knows Dracula. While I know it's possible Spike is lying, I'm curious: if it's true, does Dracula know Angel, as well?

Cubs Fan Premium member

Chosen answer: In the TV series, the answer is anything you want it to be since Dracula never appeared again. But, in 2006 (that's 6 years after the episode was broadcast) a serial comic book was released 'Spike vs Dracula' and Angel does indeed know Dracula. But, again, this isn't the TV show, it's a comic book based on the TV show.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spike_vs_Dracula_(Angel_comic)

Buffy Vs. Dracula - S5-E1

Question: How was Dracula able to enter Buffy's house/bedroom without an invitation?

Cubs Fan Premium member

Chosen answer: Joyce invited him in offscreen. In a subsequent scene, Joyce mentions to Willow and Tara that she wouldn't normally invite a strange man into the house.

Question: In the beginning of the movie we have a Dinosaur. However, later the guys find the rock/sap with the mosquito in it and Hammond say they used the DNA from the mosquito to help with the creation of the dinosaurs. Then how did they have the dinosaur at the beginning of the movie?

Chosen answer: The mining for amber to find dinosaur DNA was an ongoing project. They never created dinosaurs out of the ambered mosquito found in the movie... the dinosaurs in the movie were from other pieces of amber dug up sometime before the movie takes place.

JC Fernandez

Question: Just after Shrek asks, "What kind of quest?" someone in the background appears to be laughing. Who is it and why is he laughing?

Chosen answer: I ran through the DVD three times and after Shrek says, "What kind of quest?", there is NO laughter at all! He says the line, then there is a quick edit to the next scene where Shrek and Donkey are emerging from a sea of sunflowers. There IS a backround noise of a bird; maybe that is what you heard?

CCARNI Premium member

Question: In the flashback to Bourne's initiation, who is the man he kills?

Cubs Fan Premium member

Chosen answer: Either a criminal or a prisoner of war. Either way, "who he is" is of little consequence. All that matters is that Bourne killed him without knowing whether or not he deserved to die.

Phixius Premium member

Question: What is the Thousand-Eyed monster's name?

Chosen answer: His name is Ted Paulie.

Brad Premium member

Question: When the lady get killed in the garage door (I think), is this a parody of "Scream"? So, what happened in the real movie?

Chosen answer: The whole movie is a pardoy of Scream. In Scream, the woman was slimmer and was lifted and killed by the mechanism at the top of the garage.
