Question: How did the emergency operator start the car when Matt tells them to start? And why did Matt do so when McClane was ready to start the car with just the wires?
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: Palpatine killed Plagueis in his sleep. Is there any book/information that tells if Palpatine took precautions to avoid possibly being killed this way (by an apprentice of his own)?
Question: Would a Korean war veteran be allowed to keep his Garand rifle? I assume that the film wants to depict the rifle and the Colt pistol as being the very ones he had in Korea. Wouldn't that be like a lot of guys stowing M16s in their old footlockers?
Question: We all assume, as I did when watching the movie, that the opening scene really was intended to be the Malmedy massacre. Could it have been that they were just hinting towards that, and that the opening scene (with the array of mixed Wehrmacht and SS, 101st Airborne and other which is historically not matching Malmedy) was simply another incident? Did the director ever intend to create a grossly false Malmedy scene? There were quite a lot more atrocities in that area and time, with executions of prisoners by both sides.
Question: Someone proposes an initial blood serum test (before Macready's heat sensitivity test), but the crew find the blood sabotaged before they can get to it. How could "The Thing" have gotten to the blood so fast, and more importantly, Garry and the Doc are the only ones said to have access to the blood. BOTH are proved by the Mac's test to be "Thing-free" - the Doc's blood is tested even though he is dead; Garry is the last man tested. How can this be?
Question: In Horace Slughorn's house, what was that dragon blood dripping on the ceiling about? He has a dragon?
Question: Can anybody tell me the name of the actor who portrayed O.J, what scenes involving him, if any, used a stunt double, and if not, any child safety or labour laws that could have been broken during the making of this film?
Question: Dooku mentions that his and Obi-wan's paths have never crossed before. Does he mean that they have never met at all, or just not since Dooku left the order? Obi-wan was 20-something years old in Episode I, when Dooku was still a Jedi, so could they really have never met each other in that many years (especially with the connection of Dooku being Obi-wan's master's master?)
Question: Was Guy in on the cruel revenge prank to put dog food on Aldys, or did he just want to dance with her, and didn't know anything about it?
Question: Why exactly did Dooku join Sidious, when Sidious was actually involved in Qui-gon's death (since his last apprentice killed Qui-gon)? Does he not really care?
