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.
Question: After watching the film, I was wondering, does anyone know if the novella (upon which this film is based) or any similar Stephen King works served as inspiration to Konami's "Silent Hill" video game franchise? I am asking, because there are certainly some similarities between these works, both stylistic and in terms of tone.
Question: In the scene in the forge where Will and Jack are fighting, Jack asks "Do you think this wise, boy? Crossing blades with a pirate?" Then Will says "You threatened Miss Swann" I never got this, Jack says something after this, I have watched that three second bit over and over and I still don't know what he says, can anyone straighten this out for me?
Question: Just after Jack's entrance, he yells at one of himselves for tying a knot badly and hallucination Jack says something to the effect of "Perhaps you could give us another chance?" and real Jack says "Shall I?" stabs hallucination Jack and says in his ear "That's exactly the sort of thinking that got us into this mess". What does he mean by this?
Question: There is a scene where Canton says he believes the creatures were a strange offshoot of the ARCHAEA OTTOIA family. He then describes how big they get based on how deep down they are as well as what they do to their victims. Question is does the Archaea Ottoia really exist? If so is anything Canton said about it true? I tried looking for this creature in the search engine but with no luck.SAZOO1975
Question: This applies more to the book: Buckbeak's appeal is set for two in the afternoon, and his execution at sundown. If the Committee for the Disposal of Dangerous Creatures is so certain of Buckbeak's guilt, why (besides the gaping plot hole) do they wait so long between appeal and execution?Cubs Fan
Question: What are the physical dimensions, if any, of all the enemy ship types? Is there any biological information like height, weight of the enemy beings? I am looking at using this enemy in a fanfic of another show.
Question: Link is on Death Row for one murder, why aren't T-bag and John Abruzzi also on death row? Fair enough Link was set up by higher powers to ensure his execution but wouldn't dangerous people like T-bag and Abruzzi, convicted murderers, also be on death row? T-bag especially, since he raped and murdered children.
Question: *spoilers* I read that in the play, Alice is hit by a car and killed. At the end of the movie, we see her walking down a street, and she keeps walking as a light changes to a red hand sign. Is this supposed to mean that she also gets hit by a car in this version, but the movie ends and doesn't show her being hit?
