Question: After the saber-tooth squirrel named Scrat was eaten by a shark, how did he get out of it?
Question: Is there a reason why John McClane's previous exploits aren't mentioned in this film? He is known, and mentioned for his association with, Nakatomi in DH2 and for Dulles airport and Nakatomi in DH3 but in this one, none of his past "adventures" are mentioned bar a couple of subtle almost hidden quotes (eg. the agent Johnson scene). Is this due to any kind of copyright thing or ownership issues between the films or just that they weren't mentioned by any characters? Just seems strange to me that the previous exploits aren't talked about even a little bit.
Question: When someone dies in the dome, the body is taken away by a hovercraft. At the end, Katniss' body is taken by what seems the same hovercraft, which can do this because the dome collapsed. If so, how can the hovercraft enter the dome in the earlier scenes?
Question: Who played Al Dutcher? He was the bank robber in the clown mask who was killed in the first few minutes.
Question: When reaching Elsa's ice palace, Anna asks Kristoff and Olaf to wait outside the palace while she goes in to find her sister. Yet, Olaf follows Anna in to meet the Snow Queen, and then Kristoff comes to defend Anna as Elsa strikes her in the heart with her magic. While Kristoff and Olaf were supposed to wait at the front door, Anna and Olaf follow Elsa up the stairs and into another room. How did Kristoff figure what might happen in that room? Why doesn't Kristoff or Olaf wait at the front door like Anna asked them to anyway? Also, when Kristoff tells Anna not to throw a snowball at the snow monster, why does she act calm and suddenly do the opposite of what Kristoff says?
Question: Which one of the lord's ships do the triplets stow away on?
Question: Why did Bilbo decide to leave the Shire?
Question: Where did that engine comes from which causes Donnie's death? If he had returned the engine to the PU than how could the plane crash when his sister and mother were still in their room? And Just Before Donnie died why did he laugh? Was it because of his awareness of what's gonna happen in the future?
Question: In Season 7 Episode 10 (and others) it's said that the TARDIS has a sort of "universal translator", even after the TARDIS leaves the submarine, they can understand and speak Russian. How come in this episode, they can't understand the aliens, for the most part, as they come out as a bunch of grunts, even though the TARDIS is in the area?
Question: In the altered timeline, Flash initially could not travel through time because there was another speedster. How was he able to travel through time in the original timeline, when Zoom was alive there as well?
Question: When Cary Lowell arrives at the religious compound run by Wayne Newton to "donate" money, they don't let her in at first. She begs and says "But I came all the way from Wichita Falls." Being from Wichita Falls, Texas (a city not real well known throughout the US since it's relatively small) I'm curious as to how this line got into the film. Does someone working on the film have some connection to Wichita Falls?
Question: Is there anything that explains what Fudge and Malfoy were doing in the hall before the hearing began?
Question: After Harry wakes up in the hospital wing, Hermione was telling Harry that Snape said an incredibly powerful wizard could have produced the patronus that saved Harry and Sirius Black's life. Snape knew how powerful James and Lily were as witches/wizards so did he make the connection? Does Snape know that Harry made the patronus? even though Snape already knows Harry is destined to destroy Voldemort.
