Question: Can anyone make out what Tess whispers to Danny after Toulour makes them tell him that he is the best? I can only hear very little but I can tell that she is actually saying something.

Chosen answer: Tess says to Danny, "Get him to tell us how he did it and then tell him he's the best. I'm not going to tell him he's the best because I think you're the best."

Question: Why did Lureen lie to Ennis about how Jack died?

Chosen answer: Lureen may have been lied to about how Jack died. As a kid, Ennis had seen the body of a man that was killed for being gay. Knowing that Jack was 'seeing' other men, Ennis knew that he must have been killed for that reason instead of the way that Lureen explained it. Even if she did know the truth, she may have lied to him because she didn't want Ennis to know how Jack really died.

Jane Doe

Question: How is it that all the dead victims (except Adam and Lawrence) are found? What kind of clues could the police follow to find those secret locations and still don't have any about the jigsaw?

Chosen answer: Perhaps someone in the vicinity smelled the bodies and called the police. Each of the victims shown on screen appears to have been dead for at least a few days.

Question: When Tess (pretending to be Julia Roberts) sees Bruce Willis in the suite, he asks, "Where's Danny?" and she replies that he's working. How does Bruce Willis know about Danny Ocean? Is there a different Danny connected to Julia Roberts in real life?

Chosen answer: Bruce isn't asking about Danny Ocean, he's asking about Julia's real life husband, Danny Moder.

Jane Doe

Question: It's made very clear in the movie that all of the animals in Narnia are intelligent, sentient beings. So what happens when the carnivorous animals have to eat? Since they all seem capable of working together to defeat the witch's army, it just seems very odd that they would then turn around and start killing each other. It may seem like an odd question, but is it explained in the book?

Chosen answer: It is not clearly explained in the books. But as Narnia and the creation of Narnia (The Magician's Nephew) is based on the Bible, you need to understand that animals used to all eat plants until the fall of the human race (Adam and Eve eating the apple). Another explanation is that not all of the animals talk, and the non-talking ones are preyed on.

Answer: The books make it clear only some Narnian animals are intelligent, the rest are like ours.

Question: In Randy's recorded message, he says that "Return of the Jedi" and "Godfather part 3" both reveal something that turns out to be a lie. Of what events is he speaking?

Chosen answer: In "Return of the Jedi," Obi-Wan told Luke the truth about his earlier statement, that Darth Vader murdered his father. In "The Godfather Part 3," we learn that Sonny had a son by the woman he'd been having an affair with in the first film.

Question: When Kathy, Cosmo and Don are sitting in Don's kitchen and are discussing about Don making a musical, Don says "Only problem is after they release 'The Dueling Cavalier', no-one would come and see me jump off the Woolworth Building.". What does he say at the end of this sentence?

Chosen answer: The line is "... no one would come and see me jump off the Woolworth Building into a damp rag."

Myridon

Question: Why was the Bride never arrested or even charged with any crime after she left so many people dead in the restaurant and even more who were maimed? After her bloody revenge work was done, why is she able to just get on an airplane and leave the country with no repercussions whatsoever?

Chosen answer: The answer falls under the common film cheat that we don't know what happened so one can only speculate as to what happened. When the police came and whether they knew it was her is up for debate. As for leaving the country, she was a professional killer who had killed all over the world so its not out of the scope of her abilities to get out of the country without being held by the police. Again it's speculation so she might have used fake passports or the police didn't have enough evidence to hold her.

Question: In the extended edition Gandalf and Pippin talk about the hobbit's new place as guard of the citadel. Gandalf begins to cough and Pippin pours him some water. During the shot of Pippin with the carafe Gandalf can be heard muttering something which seems to begin with "ridiculous". What is he saying?

Chosen answer: He says "Ridiculous hobbit".

Question: What is the name of the song being played when they are messing about in the muddy field? It's also at the end of one episode of Cold Case: Anyone know the name of that episode?

SexyIrishLeprechaun

Chosen answer: It's by Creedence Clearwater Revival and the song's called "Have You Ever Seen The Rain". The episode of Cold Case it's in is called "Look Again".

Question: The speeches that "Father" gives are emotional, in that they are intended to instill emotion in the listener. I understand that Father and presumably quite a few others of the head council are not taking the Prozium, but is there a reason they are still giving these rousing speeches to the masses that are supposedly devoid of emotion? Am I just missing some of the story?

Gary O'Reilly

Chosen answer: As I see it, the point of the speeches is not to evoke emotions in the listeners, but rather to show what emotions such as anger and jealousy lead to in the course of human history. So they use historic "evidence" to justify their actions (such as killing sense offenders) and to show what emotions can lead to.

Question: What is the name of the melody/song that is played just after Michael shoots Sollozzo and McCluskey? It is played while you see some newspapers with big headlines etc.

Chosen answer: The mattress montage music is called "This Loneliness." It is written and performed by F.F.C's father.

Question: Has anyone tried to really find out what era it was to have taken place in? The Apprentice thing blares obvious, almost intentional. The rest of the comments about the monitor in the hospital and stuff also seem to date the time period. The bigger items that make it seem like the 70's or early 80's are the cars and the phone that Frank has which is very 70's/80's at best. In 2004 hospitals are so far advanced in every part of the country. I believe things like monitors tied into nurses stations and alerts not being able to be turned off locally within it notifying someone can't happen. That has been the case for some time.

Jason Etter

Chosen answer: It takes place in modern times. The hospital room is in a smaller hospital or in a wing specifically for people who need assistance living, so there's no need for all of the extra equipment found in an ICU or ER hospital room. The screens are all latest-technology and can't be more than 5 years old.

Question: One of the deleted scenes shows a number of politicians discussing with Padme how they wish to form a rebellion. One of the characters is played by Ahmed Best. In Episode II, Ahmed Best has a cameo at the night club on Coruscant. Had the scene of the discussion of the formation of the Rebel Alliance not been deleted, would Ahmed Best's character have been the same between the two movies?

Matty Blast

Chosen answer: It's unlikely. Best's appearance in Episode II was fleeting, to say the least. Had he been intended to be a character with greater significance in Episode III, then he's undoubtedly have been given more than just a brief shot in the middle of a crowd. The character being referred to in the question is in fact Giddean Danu, Senator for Kuat and he was played by Christopher Kirby not Ahmed Best.

Question: Is there anywhere where I can get the music from the Pleasantville trailer?

Hamster Premium member

Chosen answer: Some of it was taken from the soundtrack to "Homeward Bound II: Lost In San Francisco" - the rest was specifically composed for the film.

Question: Where is the golden gun now?

Chosen answer: I haven't been able to find any information on its whereabouts so my guess would be that ended up like most movie props do. Either as a souvenir for one of the people attached to the movie, (actor, director, etc.) in storage (in case it could be recycled as a prop in another movie) or simply discarded when it wasn't needed anymore.

Question: I know this film is supposed to be set in 2004-2005, but does anyone know why the clothes and some of the music seems to be quite old (like 20-30 years ago)?

Chosen answer: The reason the styles and such are so out of date is to signify that the town where "Napoleon Dynamite" takes place is a very small town that is out of touch with current fads and trends. The aged styles also serve to create a sense of nostalgia to the majority of the viewing audience.

Sarah Van Winkle

New this month Answer: Shopping for Napoleon's "tuxedo" at a thrift store would explain the old clothes. As far as the music goes I think we all have listened to music from the 80'-90's at one point.

Question: In the Extended Edition, the scene with Saruman, why is Merry sitting on the back of √Čomer's horse? The two had not met earlier and Gandalf has room for a hobbit on Shadowfax.

Chosen answer: Most likely, because Gandalf suspected that Saruman would put up a fight and concentrate his magic on him. Placing Merry with √Čomer got him out of the direct line of fire, so to speak, and left Gandalf free to concentrate on Saruman.
