Questions about specific movies, TV shows and more
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: The whole point of the ending is that if it was revealed that Dent was a murderer, the criminals that he locked up would be released. Same thing with the fake cop he was threatening. I get all this, but here's the problem: Dent falsely proclaimed that he was Batman in front of the press. Yes, he was lying and the real Batman later showed up, clearing his name, but wouldn't it be just as damaging to Dent's image to show him as a vigilante thug that half of Gotham hates for being responsible for the deaths of innocent people? Surely, at least for a brief time, the locked up criminals would have sufficient grounds for appeal.
Question: Right after WALL-E introduces himself to Mary and goes off to find EVE, Mary is surprised to find that the Axiom has a pool. First of all, how could she not have noticed that after living her whole life there? She must be at least 20 years old, and the pool, or Lido Deck, is obviously a very popular place for people to hang out at. And second, how does she even know what a pool is? If she's never been to Earth and she never knew the Axiom had a pool, then she's never been in one. And we can see that the captain is very uneducated about things on Earth. So how does Mary know what a pool is if she's never seen one before?
Question: Is there a process of how King Kandy transforms into a cy-bug once he is eaten?
Question: When King Kandy returns Ralph his medal, King Kandy also convinces him that if Vanellope wins the race, she will become a popular player for the children that play in the arcade. Yet, with her glitching making the game seem like it is malfunctioning, the game will be unplugged while Vanellope stays in the game and dies. He even mentions that he is trying to protect her. Ralph knew that King Kandy and his minions where chasing him and Vanellope because she was like a wanted criminal as a glitch. Why does Ralph believe him anyway?
Question: When Auto shows the captain the video about the president saying life is unsustainable on Earth, you can see the president putting on a helmet before going outside. The air is obviously toxic. So how, 700 years later, are the humans able to breathe when they go back to Earth? The air would be even worse by then.
Question: In the beginning of the film, Eli kills the cat with the arrow. He has donned a full gas mask and protective clothing. If the air was bad enough that he was not able to breathe it for fear of toxic fallout, how could he have eaten the cat and not gotten radioactive poisoning anyway?
Question: I've seen this movie about 10 times now but I always wondered the next thing. After the Titanic hits the iceberg, they knew the ship would sink. Couldn't they go back to the iceberg and survive there and wait for help? Surely there would be more places, and it would be warmer on the iceberg than in the water?
Question: In this episode, Peter and Brian escape the rehab centre to visit the teenage pregnancy clinic, where they prank the girls who are asleep by dipping their hand in a dish of water, which causes them to give birth prematurely. How does that prank make that happen?
Question: This might be a dumb question, but when Snape and McGonagall are dueling, it seems like McGonagall casts a spell which Snape blocks and it hits the Carrows who are behind him. My question is did the Carrows die as a result of that? Was it really the Avada Kedavra curse? And if it was McGonagall's spell then whose fault was it? Hers? Or Snape's because he blocked it?
Question: When DK beats up Sean for spending time with Neela, what is the translation of what he says after he says "or the only thing you'll be driving is a wheelchair"?
