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: Spock, in the Jellyfish, warps and leads the Narada away from Earth. Then both the Jellyfish and Narada jump out of warp. Where are both ships located in the universe? There is a debate with a friend where I believe that they warp somewhere outside of Earth's Solar System, not near any other planets, but there is not enough data to determine the exact location. The person that I am debating with believes that they are somewhere near Saturn because the Enterprise appears. I dispute this with my friend because all the Red Matter got destroyed, creating a huge black hole. Wouldn't a black hole near Saturn also endanger the planet and anything near it?

Question: There is a scene where Parker is telling Grace that the piece of ore he is holding, called "unobtainium", is why they are on Pandora. This same ore was used in the 2003 movie, "The Core", to build the manned drilling machine to bore through Earth, to the core. Was the use of the same ore name in Avatar, done with permission from the earlier movie? Or was it a mistake?
Question: Can someone please identify the names of these villains: the purple rhino and the female creature with the dark hair and red dress? (01:41:00)
Question: At the beginning, it is shown that some of the video games in the arcade, such as Tapper's, have been moved to different locations throughout the years. Is it possible that any of the characters whose video games have been moved could still return to their games after evacuating once their games plugged in again, even in spite of which extension cords their games get replugged in? (01:41:00)
Question: When Jarvis comes back on, he says to Tony "I do quite well for a _____, but at the end of a sentence I say the wrong cranberry." What was he saying?
Question: Can someone explain the exact function of the ARC reactor in Tony's chest, because it seems to vary from movie to movie? Sometimes it powers the magnet keeping the shrapnel out of his heart (1,3 & Avengers), which is why he throws it away after surgery. However sometimes it appears to be powering his heart directly (1), yet he can go for short periods of time without it (2). Mainly, however, isn't it required to power the suit (1 & 2). The Iron Monger needed one (1), Whiplash & War Machine both needed one (2), but Tony's suits in 3 & Avengers appear to work even when he's not in them?
Question: This makes no sense at all to me. Exactly how did Chris survive her very first encounter with Jason? She tells Rick about how he grabbed her by the ankles and was dragging her off when she fainted from fear and then woke up in her room at home. What exactly happened in the time in between? It's been mentioned that Jason raped Chris after dragging her away or at least he attempted to rape her. The Jason character does not rape. Period. Are we really supposed to believe that the murderous Jason just suddenly felt bad for her and brought her back to her home of his own free will? (00:48:30 - 00:51:45)
