Question: Why does It leave the picture of Georgie in 1985? The only reason I can think of is to alert the Losers Club, but It doesn't want them to come so that makes no sense.

Chosen answer: It does want the Losers to come to Derry. If you remember, Mik tells that by the site of the Bellwood murder, It painted the words "come home, come home, come home", a clear message to the Losers. In the next part (chapter 10, part 5), they also speak about how It would want them back, to exact revenge on them.

Question: Gandalf explains in this movie how he survives fighting that fire creature from the 1st movie. But I am confused here. They show in flashbacks him and the fire creature falling down the crevice and landing in a pool of water. Next scene they are on the top of the mountain fighting in snow. How did they get from the pool of water to the mountain of snow?

SAZOO1975

Chosen answer: It was a long fight lasting many days, after they fell, the Balrog climbed all the way to the peaks of the mountains, and Gandalf followed it.

Oh Brother, Where Art Thou? - S4-E6

Question: In the beginning credits of movies/t.v. shows, when they say "and introducing" followed by the actor's name, it is because it is the 1st acting role for that actor. In this episode when the introduced Quinn's brother, the beginning credits say "and introducing Charlie O'Connell." However he has done other acting roles before he appeared on Sliders. As a matter of fact, he did 2 episodes on Sliders as a different character before he became Quinn's brother. So is there a reason why the actor was "introduced" in this episode?

SAZOO1975

Chosen answer: Quinn's brother was going to be a recurring character, so "introduced" in this case referred to the actor becoming a semi-regular.

Question: Plot Spoiler: If Verbal is Keyser Soze, then why does he throw a fit when the policeman storms back into the interrogation room and says "Who is Keyser Soze?"

Chosen answer: Simple answer, its all part of the con. Verbal's back story shows that Keyser Soze is a dangerous man to deal with and the police wanting information about a man who should never be crossed is the last thing he wants to start discussing.

Question: Does Legolas marry after the battle ends, and where were his kin throughout the battle? Does Gimli marry, and where were the other Dwarfs?

Chosen answer: Sauron's assault on Middle-Earth took place on many fronts; it wasn't limited to the assault on Minas Tirith. The elven kingdom of Lorien came under attack, as did the dwarven realm of Erebor; the elves and dwarves were busy fighting their own battles. Tolkien never mentions whether Gimli or Legolas later marry, although both settled with their kin after the fall of Sauron, Legolas in Ithilien and Gimli in the Glittering Caves of Helm's Deep, so both had the opportunity to have done so before sailing into the West together after Aragorn's death in the year 120 of the Fourth Age.

Question: Why was Bloody Mary's singing voice dubbed, given that Juanita Hall was a strong singer who had performed the role on Broadway?

Chosen answer: Richard Rogers preferred the vocal performance of Muriel Smith who played the part in London. Since the vocal tracks for musicals was recorded separately from the filming back then, dubbing occurred for many reasons other than lack of singing ability of an actor, scheduling problems, budget, etc.

Question: After Mace kills Jango, why does he stare at him for a moment? He is too far away to have seen the look on Dooku's face.

Chosen answer: In the novelization for Episode III it explains that mace Windu created a fighting style known a Vaapad. It also explains that this form of fighting is very dangerous because the user's mind becomes passive. It is possible that Mace Windu was only then realizing that he had killed Jango.

Question: Can anyone explain the necklaces? Before Flint Sky is killed and before Jaguar Paw is sent out to run for his life, the Mayan warrior removes the necklaces they wear. When the warrior is bitten by the snake, he removes his own necklace before cutting his wrists. This happens several times in the movie so it seems like removing the necklace before facing death is significant. Can anyone shed some light on this?

Chosen answer: It's a sign of the warrior passing over to death. When the warrior removed Jaguar Paw's necklace just before setting him free, it was a way of telling him that his life was going to be over soon.

Question: What is it that Malfoy calls Ron in the scene near the shrieking shack?

Chosen answer: He calls him Weaselby (a pun on Ron's last name Weasley and a weasel).

Question: At the part where Peter cheated and got "devolved," he says that he was TEN spaces away, and then he says that he tried to win by dropping the dice so that they landed on TWELVE. Why would he want to roll a 12 in order to move 10 spaces?

Chanteuse66

Chosen answer: Most games don't need you to roll the exact number of spaces left in order for someone to win. By rolling twelve he gets to move his ten spaces & has won. I'm assuming it's easier for him to roll two sixes than anything else.

Question: Why did Alfie start to have problems Nikki when she broke a champagne glass and got a little loud on New Years? Since they went to a lot of parties and she was the wild, adventurous type, I don't understand why this surprised and offended him so much.

Chosen answer: As I understood it, when she broke the glass, she was being a bit more wild than usual, which caused Alfie to suddenly realise that her loudness could be annoying. He found her wildness attractive to a point, but she was being more wild than he was prepared to accept.

Question: Did anyone play him- or herself in this movie? That seems to be typical for many movies of this kind, but I'm not aware of anyone doing it in Apollo 13 (yes, I know Jim Lovell had a cameo at the end).

Chosen answer: Other than a few individuals who appears in archive footage taken from the era, who could technically be said to be playing themselves, no, there's nobody. Too much time has really passed since the original events for anybody to be convincing as their younger selves.

Answer: Marilyn Lovell also played herself. She is in the viewing stands clapping.

Marilyn Lovell doesn't play herself, she just has a cameo (the same as Jim Lovell) where she plays on onlooker at the site.

Question: What is the song playing during the football game and who is the artist singing it?

SAZOO1975

Chosen answer: The Kids Aren't Alright - The Offspring.

Question: What exactly are V's (for lack of a better word) "superpowers"? Also, can V see?

Blibbetyblip

Chosen answer: Yes, V can see. As a result of the experiments performed upon him, V has increased strength, stamina, reflexes and speed. All of these could be considered to be at least at the maximum possible level for a human and possibly slightly in excess of that. His mental capacity has also been enhanced to genius level or above.

Question: I know Rory and Gigi are half-sisters, but out of curiosity, what relationships would be required to make them step-sisters?

Cubs Fan Premium member

Chosen answer: Half sisters (or brothers) share either a mother or a father, but not both. Step sisters mean there is no blood relationship at all and one's mother and the other's father got married to each other.

Question: The pharmacist from Desperate Housewives called Russell Crowe a kike. What's that?

Chosen answer: "Kike" is an ethnic slur that refers to Jews. To elaborate, when illiterate Jewish immigrants would be asked to sign their names on Ellis Island, they would simply put a circle on the signature line. The Yiddish word for "circle" is "kikel."

OneHappyHusky

Question: What's with the necklace Will wears throughout the movie? I think he wears it in "At World's End" too. I'm just wondering if it says anywhere where he got it, or why he wears it.

Chosen answer: None of the movies address it, nor wether it has any special significance. Barbossa also wears a necklace that is unmentioned.
