Question: When Sylvia is reading through Simon's book, she writes down that Simon died, etc. Then she started to write "Sylvia". Why?

Jason Feng

Chosen answer: At this point, she has set her mind on killing the African leader and knows she'll likely be killed immediately afterwards (police, bodyguards, etc). She's writing her name in anticipation of her death.

Question: Am I mistaken, or did Sylvia say she was born in the US before moving to Africa? I'm just puzzled as to why she was deported in the end even if she has dual citizenship.

Jason Feng

Chosen answer: Dual citizenship is complicated, and it does not guarantee a person equal rights, privileges, and obligations in both countries. Nor does one country or the other always recognize dual citizenship. Since Sylvia's main residency has been in Africa, the US would consider that her primary homeland and could legally deport her there. Basically, the government is giving Sylvia a way to avoid prosecution in the US by allowing her to leave the country.

Question: How old was Olivia Hussey when this movie was made? Also, what is the name of the guy who plays Romeo and how old was he?

Chosen answer: Olivia Hussey was born April 17, 1951 so she was probably still 16 when the film was being made, but 17 when it was released in 1968. Leonard Whiting was born June 30, 1950 - almost a year older than Olivia.

Question: When Rachel is sitting on the step outside and Chandler runs out chasing a girl saying 'Ok you be shirts and I'll be skins.' What does he mean by this?

Chosen answer: If you're playing team sports and the weather is favourable then one easy way to know who's in which team is to have one team keep their shirts on and the others not. Hence shirts and skins, clearly if girls were playing there was scope for fun.

Question: This is on a bit of a tangent, but I was wondering if someone could tell me how many CSI novelisations there are and (if space permits) their titles in reading order. Thanks.

Chosen answer: There are currently six novelizations. They are (in reading order): Double Dealer, Sin City, Cold Burn, Body of Evidence, Grave Matters, and Binding Ties.

Question: I'm guessing that Jude Law's character's face at the end of the film had something to do with the fight they had in the hotel, where Tom Hanks's character shot him in the face. But why did he have all those little marks, if Tom Hank's character only shot him once?

Chosen answer: Tom Hanks shot at a glass lamp, which shattered right before Jude's face, causing lots of shards of glass to cut his face.

Question: As I have a region four disk, does anyone know a website that has the "Vowellet : An Essay by Sarah Vowell" essay on it?

Chosen answer: You can find the 9 minute video of this on YouTube.

Question: What is Jenna's ring tone that can be heard at the beginning?

Chosen answer: It is La Cumparsita.

Question: There seemed to be an unusually high number of guards as compared to the number of prisoners; would they actually be armed with pistols?

Chosen answer: Since this movie takes place in the '30s, I think the number of guards is about right. There were no such things as stun guns back then. If a prisoner freaked out, they would need a few men to overpower him, just like we see when 'Wild Bill' is brought in. Prison guards today don't carry guns because they could be used against the guard. In the '30s no such rules existed. If you were a cop or a guard, you had a gun no matter what.

Question: I know this movie was based on a Broadway play. Does anyone know how it is revealed in the play what Alice's real name is, and also how Dan realizes that "Alice Ayers" was a fake name? Both of these facts are revealed in the movie without dialogue, so I was wondering what the play was like.

Chosen answer: The play ends quite differently from the film. Larry and Anna meet in the park with the plaques - they are no longer together, they are each dating someone new. Larry points out the "Alice Ayers" plaque to Anna, who reads it out loud. Larry notes how she made up everything about herself. Anna says she is meeting Dan there, he asked to see her. When Dan arrives, with a suitcase, Larry leaves. Dan says the police in New York called to tell him "Jane Jones" had died, and he learns that was Alice's real name. He is on his way to New York. The End.

Season 3 generally

Question: One of the Easter Egg entries says an egg is on every DVD and can be accessed by entering '35' when the alien writing appears on the screen. I have tried this, but it doesn't work. Can someone please go into a little more detail for me or explain why it might not work? The other easter eggs can be accessed fine.

Chosen answer: I did some research around the net and it seems this only works with region 2 DVDs.

Question: I wonder whether Kraven and Lucian are actually the two (out of three) Sons of the Corvinus clan. Before Lucian died after being shot by Kraven, he called him 'cousin'. I would also be grateful if anyone would explain what Viktor meant by Marcus being a descendent of Corvinus (Does it mean that Marcus turned one of the sons of the Corvinus clan into a vampire or he is related to that guy who survived the plague? I'm confused).

Chosen answer: Alexander Corvinus was the first true Immortal, he had three sons, William bitten by wolf, Marcus by bat and the unnamed third who remained human. Michael Corvin is the last true human descendant of Corvinus in the present world.The cousin reference is that all vampires and lycans are related through the bloodlines after being turned. This is why Michael survives a bite from both species. Normally the viruses they carry are deadly to humans and no one has survived a bite from both species, except Michael who becomes a hybrid, half vampire, half Lycan, but stronger than both.

Question: When Deloris asks the class where their music books are, and they point to the ceiling, what is on the ceiling, and why do they point to the ceiling in the first place?

Chosen answer: Because they have torn all the pages out and used them as spit balls and stuck them to the ceiling.

Question: When Keira Knightley finds out that Andrew Lincoln loves her on the video, he gets really awkward and says something along the lines of 'I've got to go somewhere for lunch.' Then he pauses and says, 'It's a self-preservation thing' and walks out. When he says that does he mean the eating (ie his lunch) or the video (so he at least can look at her sometimes even if he can't have her)?

Chosen answer: He refers to the fact that he is usually not very nice to her and pretends not to like her. That makes it easier for him not to show his love, which is important because otherwise he would spoil the friendship with her husband.

nightline

Her question is more about the disparity between his behavior towards her and this video which shows he's felt very differently from how he's acted. The video of her (close ups of just her) was meant only for him.

Question: What happens to the Adam Sandler and Tea Leoni characters? Were there any cut scenes that explained it, or something? Does the marriage fall apart?

Chosen answer: There were no explanations offered. I think the movie was far better in leaving that question, and whether or not he married Flor, unanswered. The focus was on the child and her respect for her mother - not the other relationship.

Question: In the Return of the King movie, after Arwen has a vision of her unborn son, she rides back to Rivendell to ask her father whether he saw a son in her future. He explains that he saw death. She argues that that is not a certainty and then asks him to reforge Narsil (Isildur's Sword) for Aragorn. She then sits down and drops the book she was holding. What book was she holding and what is its significance?

Chosen answer: The book contained the exact information about the legend that she was pointing out to Elrond. When he balked, she sat dejectedly and let the book fall from weakened fingers.

Question: What is the song playing right after the scene where Elle is dressed as a playboy bunny?

Chosen answer: The song is called "Watch Me Shine" by Joanna Pacitti.

Question: At the beginning of the movie, when the men are boarding the ship, a line of sailors are marching single file, nodding their heads up and down and chanting "Ahh-ah, ah-ooh" repeatedly. What are they doing this for?

Chosen answer: It's a marching chant, sort of like an ancient version of the marching music we have now.

Question: Could someone tell me a website that has a list of cars used in this movie?

Chosen answer: http://www.cagebypage.com/abouthismovies/factsstats/gone_in_60_seconds_facts.html - the power of google.
