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: When Slugworth is trying to bribe Charlie into bringing him the Everlasting Gobstopper, he says that his reward will be "10,000 of these" as he shows Charlie a bunch of money. Does anyone know what "those" were and how much "they" were worth? They look too big to be American dollars.
Question: This question is more based on the soundtrack of the movie. After comparing the soundtrack CD to the music scores in the movie, I noticed there's some moments where the music is only heard in the movie, such as when we're first introduced to the floating mountains or the flute music that plays when Jake learns to ride on the direhorse. My questions are: Why were these left out of the soundtrack? And where can I find similar tracks to these? Not exact tracks, in case I can't find them, but similar music.
Question: Wouldn't it have made more sense in having Hickox and the two German Basterds pose as a camera man and his assistants instead of wearing Nazi officer uniforms when they met Bridget in the bar? I would think that an officer would draw more attention than civilians. Civilians wouldn't have been that strange a sight in a bar in France, would it? And if they were asked any questions about their purpose for being in France, Hickox could have been more convincing since he was the film buff. The other two could have played along as Hickox did most of the talking anyway, or am I missing something?
Question: When Abe or the Princess are in the library, (but I can't remember if they are together) what is the name/author of the poem they are reading?
Question: If I'm correct, Carrie's mother (in both the movie and book) believes that Carrie had her period as a sign of some sin. However, the Bible itself has verses that mention periods. Being a religious fanatic who has most likely read the Bible several times, why isn't Carrie's mother aware of menstruation being natural?
Question: Wouldn't the city have found out that someone was using the hotel when there was electricity being used but no-one to pay for it?
Question: I was just wondering if in America (or any other countries) the film is called 'twenty-twelve' or 'two thousand and twelve'? Here in England it's 'twenty twelve', it had never occurred to me it might be different elsewhere but in the commentary the director calls it 'two thousand and twelve'.
Question: This question is sort of across the whole trilogy: If the elves are immortal (or, as I think someone pointed out, they just age very very slowly) but they still have children, (various elf family trees confirm this), how is it that Middle Earth isn't overrun by them?
