Question: This just interests me, but when Harry's name comes out of the Goblet of Fire, and he has to go and join the champions, why is Dumbledore angry with him? There's no way Harry could have submitted his own name because he's not of age yet, and he is not educated enough to over-ride Dumbledore's Age-Line spell or fool the Goblet into accepting him, and there's no way Hermione would have helped him because she's too moral about using magic for the wrong reasons; Dumbledore should know both these things already if he is such an intelligent and knowledgeable wizard.
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: In various episodes in the first series it is mentioned several times that the crew numbered 169 crewmembers aboard the ship. However, when the mindprobe convicts Rimmer of second degree murder it states that he is guilty of 1,167 counts. Where did the other 1,000 casualties come from?
Question: In the cold open, Janice asks who's done it with who. How come Ross and Rachel aren't saying anything and why, in a deleted line in that same scene, does Rachel says something like, "If you don't put out I'll dump you for someone who does" to Ross? Ross and Rachel have had sex numerous times prior to this episode so is the whole joke that Rachel's being sarcastic?
Question: What is the purpose of the boots on the rafters in the scene where they find the first murdered priest?
Question: Could someone please tell me where I can find a good quality picture of the back of Jean Grey's coat? I want to copy the Phoenix symbol that you see on the back of her coat (it's when Jean and Storm enter the church looking for Nightcrawler). I can't get anything resembling a decent picture on my TV (I even went frame by frame), and various Google image searches haven't even yielded a crappy picture. For something that should be simple, it's sure driving me up a wall. If anyone can help me out I will be extremely grateful.
Question: In this movie and HP7 part one, the Weasley family are called "blood traitors." What is that? This also occurs in the books too. Can someone tell me what that remark refers to?
Question: How did Draco Malfoy get the Elder Wand at the end of book 7?
Question: At almost the end of the Titanic, they show pictures of Rose doing the things that she had talked about doing with Jack. EX. riding a horse with one leg on each side. Then they show "Old Rose." Is she asleep dreaming about Jack or is she dead and has gone to "be with Jack." I was wondering because they show Jack and Rose kissing by the clock, on the boat, at the very end. Then the screen goes white. So I figured that she had died. Am I correct?
Question: Isn't it revealed in the book that Dumbledore is gay? If so, why did they leave this out?
Question: Just regarding the entrance to the great hall. In Deathly Hallows Part II it is shown that the double doors of the dining hall lead out straight to the courtyard area (where Harry's final battle with Voldemort takes place in case it needed clarifying). This is all on the same level (i.e. no stairs going up or down a storey). However, in earlier films, e.g. Philosopher's Stone, when the new students arrive they are all shown walking up some stairs and then waiting outside the hall entrance (the same place where young Voldemort and Dumbledore talk over the future of the school in The Chamber of Secrets). Having also visited Christ Church college at Oxford (filmed at this location) I know that there are stairs, so basically (and finally!), my question is whether anyone can explain why Hogwarts seems to have changed. I can't work it out, either decision by the producers/directors/etc. or I've failed to recognise/remember some detail. Either way, any help would be very much appreciated! P.S. (Sorry for the essay).
Question: Did Narcissa Malfoy know that Harry was still alive when she goes to check the body after Voldemort "killed" Harry? The Malfoys all seem a bit nervous and afraid afterwards when Voldemort has Hagrid carry Harry's body to show everyone that he "defeated" Harry.
Question: Is the scotch trick Kevin Spacey played on Jason Bateman a nod to "Hopfrog" by Edgar Allen Poe? To those of you who are wondering, Hopfrog is a deformed dwarf Jester who is forced to amuse a tyrant by being forced to drink wine because "it excited the poor cripple to madness, and madness is no comfortable feeling." Hopfrog avenges himself that very night, but I was just wondering.
