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 Johnny is poking the Thing in his sleep, the Thing puts his hand up to his face, and he gets something that's white and foamy all over his face. What is that stuff, and why was it there?
Question: I've never understood how, in the comics, Rogue kept the powers she "absorbed" from Ms. Marvel, yet with any other mutant/human she absorbs, the effect is only temporary (as in the films). Can anyone explain this to me?
Question: Why does Obi-Wan say he doesn't ever remember owning a droid when he had some type of ownership over R2 in episodes 2 and 3?
Question: I was just wondering why the Sorting Hat speaks out loud in the film, because in the book it was only heard in the pupil's head. Obviously it would need to shout out the house at the end, but everything else could be a bit personal, and shouldn't be shouted to the whole school.
Question: After John and Jane killed all those people, wouldn't their boss send more people after them? And why don't the Smiths fear/anticipate/react to this fact/possibility? Is it me or does it seem the only way they could have a happy ending is die or they have to kill the boss and destroy all their records (Which they would probably die trying).
Question: In this episode, Brendan Fraser has his arm on fire for a good ten seconds. I've seen this effect before, and his arm has gotta be covered in some kind of fluid that protects his skin, or something. But it looks so good. Does anyone know exactly how it's achieved without him feeling the pain? I'm pretty sure it's not a prosthetic, could it be a false skin wrapped around his forearm?
Question: In the scene where Jessep, Markinson, and Kendrick are discussing what to do with Private Santiago, Jessep says he wants Santiago to make 4-6-4-6 on his next proficiency report. What does this score mean?
Question: At the end of the movie, when the crew member yells something and waves a green light, what is he saying? Not the scene where he's looking for survivors, the scene right before they reach the Carpathian.
