Chosen answer: There are 4. The big room that DJ and Stephanie used with the big bay window. Next to that (closer to the main/front staircase) was the father's room (rarely seen). Across the hall were the rooms used Uncle Jesse (in the beginning of the show) and Michelle's baby room.

Question: What was the motivation behind the alien's genocidal nature and attack on earth?

Socks1000

Chosen answer: They intend to plunder Earth's resources. That's easier to do if they eliminate the population first.

Tailkinker Premium member

Chosen answer: There's never any confirmation one way or another in the film. It's established that alien craft have been in the vicinity of Earth since the late forties, presumably scout ships investigating resources, likely level of opposition and so forth, which would quite likely have included a few abductions to establish human physical capabilities. Best we can really say is that it's possible that he was.

Tailkinker Premium member

Answer: Yes, as aliens do exist in this scenario.

Chosen answer: The Cruciform has not been confirmed to be a location, a weapon, a ship, or some kind of object. It has only ever been mentioned, never described. All we know is that it belonged to the Time Lords. It must have been important in the Time War because the Daleks wanted control of it.

Question: What are supers? Are they an offshoot of humanity, or an evolved breed of humanity?

Socks1000

Question: It appears Jason has upsized his shack in this version. He now lives in an abandoned house instead of a rundown shack we see in Part 2. Plus the house has an extensive tunnel system. Finally, where does the electric bill get sent?

Answer: It's the former summer camp. I would believe they had a generator or two.

Where did he get the generator from? Home Depot?

Chosen answer: They are most definitely NOT the same actress. Patricia Quinn was born in 1944 in Belfast, Northern Ireland, and Patricia Heaton was born in 1958 in Ohio.

Question: When Korben speaks to Finger, they state that Finger was in his unit: "...sat beside you for over a thousand missions. I know how you drive." Two questions: Who does the voice of Finger, and does that not negate the 3rd reason why Korben was chosen for the mission, that no one else in his unit survived?

TheBurts

Chosen answer: 1. IMDB doesn't list anyone in the credits for the role of Finger. 2. Military members often serve in more than one unit over the course of their careers. I was in for four years and was with two different units and Korben was in for much longer. Finger and Korben could have been in a unit together then one of them transfered to a different unit later on.

Shannon Jackson

Answer: Finger is an uncredited voice performance by Vin Diesel.

This has never been confirmed, and is speculation at best. Also, while Finger sounds vaguely like Vin Diesel, the voices are different enough that it's unlikely to be him.

Question: Why did Veck plan to take the hostages with him to the Cayman Islands? If he had gotten the money, why would he have needed to take them?

Answer: As security against having his airplane shot from the sky by law enforcement. Once he was safely in the Caymans, he could release the hostages without fear of being apprehended by the United States law enforcement agencies.

Chosen answer: I don't think they experimented on him. He was too dangerous to have constant visit from anyone. So they just kept him locked up.

Question: What happened during Alex's dream that people were playing around in his head? What does this actually mean?

Socks1000

Chosen answer: It means they were altering his brain to somehow undo the Ludovico Treatment.

Captain Defenestrator

Question: What was on the translation note to make the bad guy say, "good luck"?

Answer: It actually did say "Good Luck". Bryan was trying to get the villain to say that phrase so he could be certain that it was him by matching the voice to the one on the tape.

wizard_of_gore

Answer: Bryan looked up the Albanian translation of "good luck", and wrote it down, from the English-Albanian dictionary he had purchased from the translator. He gave it to the kidnappers to read it back to him in English, so that he would be able to identify the speaker by voice. It was more plausible to create a story of needing something translated than to try to get one of the criminals to repeat "good luck" in English directly. The note is an implied office prank at Bryan's expense, since Bryan was pretending he was sent by French intelligence to shake down the criminals - his supposed "office staff" were wishing him "good luck" in Albanian. Bryan wrote the note himself, of course, but the criminals didn't know that, and chuckled about it.

Question: At the start when the agent gets shot at the concert, what is the name of the band and the song that they are singing?

Question: Was Col. Frank Fitts really gay, or was he just testing Lester to see if he was gay? Also if he was gay, then how come he was so disgusted by it earlier in the film?

Answer: Frank was gay. As to why he was disgusted by it, he had probably been in complete denial about his true nature for years. Many gay people are torn over their sexual orientation. Adhering to a strict macho military image may have helped Frank mask his true feelings, and he probably considered gay people as being weak and loathsome, while denying he was one. When he acknowledged his own homosexuality, he, in effect, despised himself and considered his life a failure.

Chosen answer: Caitlin was left in the possible future (where the virus had been released) when Peter teleported out. Then, when Hiro zapped the virus out of existance, that future became impossible, so that timeline became void.Basically, when that future ceased to exist, so did Caitlin, and since her parents seem to be dead (please correct me if I'm wrong, it's been a while seen I saw S2) and Elle killed her brother, there are no next of kin to raise awkward questions.

Question: Why did Vader stop Luke when he tried to strike at the Emperor with his lightsaber? I know he said earlier that he has to obey his master, but he keeps encouraging Luke to give in to the dark side. If he hadn't stopped Luke, Luke could have given in to his anger and killed the Emperor, and also rid Vader of the Emperor at the same time.

Answer: It was still too early. While Luke was upset that the Rebels appeared to be losing, he was still relatively calm, and his attempt to strike the Emperor right then was still a rational choice made out of pragmatism, to bring him to justice. They need him to act on pure hatred so he can behold "the power" of the dark side, which they expect to be completely irresistible.

TonyPH Premium member

Answer: Because the Emperor probably wouldn't leave himself so open to attack without a trick up his sleeve (a personal shield, perhaps), and if Luke failed in this direct assault, as Vader is expecting him to do, he would have had to explain why he didn't do anything to defend the Emperor and would have been executed himself.

Captain Defenestrator

Answer: No. Inigo's sword has a jeweled hilt. D'Artagnan's is not jeweled.

Question: After killing "Wild Bill," Percy is lying on the ground "puking" out Melinda's brain tumor that John Coffey placed into him. While Percy's spitting that out, one of the guards keeps yelling "Oh no!" I see nobody's lips moving to say that, so is that an audio error, or was the person not on the screen? Anyway, it really bothers me, but who was it who yells that?

Tricky

Chosen answer: The camera is only on three individual people (Paul, Percy and the dead Wild Bill) when you hear Dean saying "Oh no, oh no."

Question: During the Battle of Hoth, why is the AT-AT walker suddenly easy to blow up after it has crashed? I thought their "armor was too strong for blasters."

taylordan90

Chosen answer: The weak point of an AT-AT is its neck, which is the point the snowspeeder fires upon when the AT-AT explodes.
