Question: Why is the supposed foreign version of the Shining with the deleted ending impossible to find? Does anybody have this version or know how to get it? I have a feeling it's an elaborate Internet rumor and does not actually exist.

????

Chosen answer: Stanley Kubrick changed the ending of The Shining after it had been in theatres for about three days. About ten minutes of footage was removed. The full US theatrical version runs 145mins, everywhere else 115mins after Kubrick trimmed the movie to remove what he considered "unnecessary" scenes. There is no specific "foreign version" save for cuts any TV networks may make for transmission.

Question: Is it just me or do both of the Patil twins appear to be wearing Griffindor uniforms? one of them (Padma) should be wearing Ravenclaw colours.

Chosen answer: In the books, the Patil sisters are identical twins, but they were sorted into different Hogwarts' Houses (Gryffindor and Ravenclaw). In the movies, they are fraternal twins, and both are in Gryffindor.

Question: Are Palpatine and Dooku's real first names known? They're not Dantius and Jard - those are "fanon" names made up by fanfiction writers. See http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Dantius_Palpatine and http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Jard_Dooku.

Chosen answer: Dooku's first name is currently unknown, however from the book Darth Plagueis we know that Palpatine's first name is Sheev.

Question: At the end, right at the beginning of the song "Hairspray" at the pageant, Amber turns to Link and whispers, "Look, there's the agents" and it cuts to a few suit-wearing people with clipboards. My mom and I noticed that one of the women among them looked like Ricki Lake. Is it her, in a cameo? It would seem to make sense since she was in the original movie.

Chosen answer: Yes, that is Ricki Lake, the original Tracy Turnblad, in a cameo appearance!

Question: Why did Polly get a panic attack in the middle of the night?

Chosen answer: If you listen to her yelling when they try to subdue her, she yells out "I'm ugly". This is most likely stemming from earlier when Angelina's character makes a comment about Polly never finding love because of the way she looks.

Jennifer30

Answer: Polly freaked out because she had seen Suazanna kissing her boyfriend earlier that day. Polly realised that is something she will never have.

Question: Why was Simon allowed a damn at the joy joy feeling machine thingy while John was fined for one while talking to his friend?

Chosen answer: I'm assuming you're referring to when Simon says "Damn, I'm possessed!" He was hacking the machine when he said it, perhaps he'd corrupted the program or shut off the microphone as a side effect?

Grumpy Scot

Answer: Phoenix has no sub-dermal microchip in his hand. Per Huxley, all transactions are done with this chip. That would mean fines are also generated per person based on this chip too.

Except when Simon is trying to get a gun, he keeps swearing at the booth which constantly fines him.

Question: One of the mistakes listed for this film says that Lovell's daughter Barbara slams a copy of the not-yet-released Beatles album "Let It Be" into her rack. How can you tell what album she's holding in that scene, when you only get a split-second glimpse of it? Without using slow-motion or freeze-frame (which is not permitted for mistake submissions), it doesn't seem possible to conclusively identify the album in question. Or is the background music for that scene a song from that particular Beatles album?

Chosen answer: "Let It Be" has a very distinctive cover. If you look at the cover, and then re-watch that scene, you should recognize that it is indeed that album.

Question: How did Dooku meet Darth Sidious?

Chosen answer: It is explained that the ever watchful Sidious/Palpatine had his eye on Dooku as a potential apprentice even before the events of The Phantom Menace. Indeed, Palpatine's own master Darth Plagueis was also familiar with Dooku and had actually met him twenty years prior to TPM (though he did not reveal himself as a Sith Lord). It is stated that Plagueis introduced Dooku to Palpatine during this time (again, with their public faces) and the latter two had a friendly relationship thereafter. Palpatine approached Dooku shortly after Qui-Gon Jinn's death, revealed himself as a Sith Lord and finally took Dooku as his apprentice (after many years of careful cultivation).

Question: Does anyone know why there is no song in this movie, the one that plays before someone dies?

Chosen answer: There is, Highway to hell by ACDC.

Question: Why doesn't Sara just hold up 5 fingers when shes at the lie/truth gate and ask how many fingers shes holding up? It seems much more simple than her way.

Chosen answer: Sarah was allowed only one question, and asking how many fingers she was holding up would determine which one lies, but use up her only question as to which door to take.

Question: Where did Barricade disappear to? The last time we see him was on the highway with Bonecrusher, just before Bonecrusher transforms and attacks Optimus. Did he chicken out and run away after seeing how easily Optimus defeated Bonecrusher?

Chosen answer: Could be either. We won't know what happened to him until the sequel comes out!

Question: After Marti's father returns to her and Andy, they are driving through the base. Marti's father tells her not to show emotion because they can be fooled. She looks at him and realizes he is one of them. What was different about him that made Marti realize the truth? Her dad was acting normal and I could not see him giving anything away so what did I miss?

SAZOO1975

Chosen answer: I actually just watched this movie again today and I think it was because he was acting too calm and quiet. Marti might have got suspicious from the slight change in his personality. He also wasn't sweaty anymore and didn't have that white patch on his cheek that you can see in the previous scene when he picks up the phone in the doctor's office.

Answer: Before Steve ran off to find help the baddies were chasing them, when he reappeared the pod people just ignored them. Then he was driving someplace that was not an escape route, which, I believe, was what first tipped Marti off. And because he repeated the same exact line.
