Question: If he can't afford more than crappy coffee and oatmeal, then how does he afford all the alcohol and fancy restaurants he goes to?

Answer: I think the breakfast is free, however the lower class doesn't get a fancy meal for free but a more basic type. The restaurants and bar on the other hand cost money.

Answer: I wondered about this, too. His lower-class passage limits his breakfast choice. However, it seems that any passenger should be able to upgrade their individual meals at anytime and order what they want, as he does in the multiple on-board restaurants. It may be that breakfast, for whatever reason, is exempt from that option.

Yeah but they simply push a button for the breakfast and actually order food from the restaurants. You might think he would just go ahead and go to one of the restaurants to get his breakfast, but maybe they aren't open yet at that time. The ship seems to be more of a cross between a luxurious cruise and boot-camp. The breakfast is perhaps standard ship protocol.

Question: Archibald Snatcher's main goal is to exterminate the Boxtrolls, but why did he also try to get Eggs killed? Eggs is a human.

Answer: Snatcher wants membership in the White Hats and is ready to sacrifice anyone plus Eggs is proof that Boxtrolls don't kill humans.

Question: Why is Hannah always looking at Jack in a weird way? She does this at least twice in the movie: once when he's approaching Ana, and later after Ana left for José's photography exhibition. Is something going on between them or did?

Answer: Hannah is aware of Jack's reputation for being sexually aggressive, resulting in his previous assistants quitting their jobs. She correctly surmises that he is now targeting Ana as his next victim.

Question: Are there any plans to release a director's cut?

Answer: At the moment, no. Given the fact the series was rebooted, Sony seems to be putting its focus on the new films. Although given that an alternative cut of 2007's "Spider-Man 3" was recently released, it's possible a director's cut might appear in the future. But at the moment, there are no plans for one.

Question: After Piangi dies after Christine unmasks the Phantom for a second time, what happened to Carlotta?

Answer: Nothing, we can see she's holding his body and mourning his death.

Question: Can vampires and werewolves be killed or injured by anything other than vampires and werewolves?

raph

Answer: Sure. The problem is that these films portray vampires and werewolves as having super-human abilities, so it'd be significantly harder for a regular person to kill one. But nothing about the films seems to indicate it's overtly impossible.

Question: Who is in the photograph on the liquor table in the beginning?

Question: Why is it that the grudge doesn't kill the old woman living in the house?

Question: What was the reason behind Samantha Mulder's abduction?

Answer: She was taken when the Syndicate was formed and the aliens decided to take a member from each family in each different Syndicate as collateral. Samantha was chosen to be the one that the aliens took because her mother just couldn't choose between her two children.

Question: Why could Malcolm not open the door with the red knob?

Answer: In Malcolm's spirit-mind, which was in denial, it was somehow stuck and simply wouldn't open. But in reality as shown in the final twist, it's because his wife had blocked the door with a heavy desk, which Malcolm was "blocking out" and refusing to allow himself to see.

Question: Where were Toomes and the gang after they were fired?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: At a large building, which is presumably a storage/office space Toomes owns or rents for the purposes of his salvaging/disposal job, since he'd need significant space for equipment and whatnot. It later became his villainous lair.

Question: Why was Tom bringing the football team to his house?

Answer: Because he needed a way to coach the team while also watching his kids.

Question: Wouldn't the end of the fight be an obvious draw as soon as the second judge's score was read in favor of Antonio? Michael Buffer didn't announce a split decision before reading the scorecard so as soon as the second score was read in favor of Antonio then a draw was imminent.

Question: When Elliott, Mike and Mike's friends are escaping from the agents on their bikes, are the actors' stunt doubles adults or teenagers? Asking because I've heard of teenagers being stunt performers in movies.

Answer: The BMX stunt riders were aged between 15 and 20, so older than the kids in the film who were about 10.

Question: When Robin Hood goes to Skippy's house as a blind beggar, does he say, "Did I hear someone say a birthday today?" or "Did I hear someone sing a birthday ditty?"

Answer: He said "Did me old ears hear someone singin' a birthday ditty?"

Bishop73

I thought it was "today", not "ditty."

Question: Why had the replicants tried to break into Tyrell Corporation? How come Roy Batty knew the corporation existed at all?

Answer: Replicants appear to know about their origin and lifespan, and even if they didn't, Roy is highly intelligent and motivated, and could easily have determined Tyrell's role in his creation through various means. The reason they broke into Tyrell Corp was they wanted the company or Tyrell himself to extend their lifespans, or to work out the means to do it themselves.
