Question: In the credits it lists the name of the dark haired bride as Verona - it does this in the game as well - but I can't find that name spoken anywhere in the film. Where is it, if anywhere?

Chosen answer: Her name is never spoken, but the two other brides' names, Aleera and Marishka, are spoken.


Question: Is the car that Dwight and nearly-headless Jackie-Boy have their conversation in (the scene that Tarantino directed) the same type of car in Reservoir Dogs & Pulp Fiction?

Chosen answer: It's the same as the one in Resevoir Dogs, but I dont know about the one in Pulp Fiction.

Call of the Primitives - S3-E26

Question: When all the animal transformers start to follow the call, Soundwave states that his ejection has activated by itself. After Ravage and Ratbat, who are those other two tapes?

Chosen answer: These two were 'dinosaur' cassettes Overkill and Slugfest, then-new toys. They turn up this once and that's it, though.

Daria Sigma

Question: Who is the guy who looks through Cindy's window at the beginning of the movie and says 'wrong set'?

Question: Who does Sky live with? Does she live with her Grandfather, Harold?

Chosen answer: Yes, Sky lives with Harold at 24 Ramsay Street.


Question: Why was Richard Donner (the original hired director) fired?

Chosen answer: Because of several arguments with the producers, mainly stemming from the fact that Donner wanted to make the films serious, while the producers wanted to make them into a Batman-like comedy.


Question: This is proberbly an American thing, but when Lloyd and Harry are in the diner, they say to the waitress, "Excuse me, Flo" and crack up laughing. Why?

Grumpy Scot

Question: Could anyone tell me what is the name of the song that Christina Milian performs with Aerosmith?

Question: If Samara was possessing Aidan, who was possessing Samara as a baby? She couldn't have possessed herself.

Chosen answer: Samara wasn't posssessed as a baby. She herself was evil.

Question: What is the name of that song played in the House of Pain when they first enter the nightclub hall?

Chosen answer: The song is called Tao Of The Machine, and is performed by BT and the Roots. It can be found on the Blade 2 Soundtrack CD.


Question: In the French version of the film, the names Mike Myers, Eddie Murphy, Cameron Diaz, and John Lithgow do not appear in the beginning. Can someone please tell me why this is and what other versions (Germany, Italy, etc.) if so, have this occurrence?

Chosen answer: The actors' names do not appear because the actors do not feature in any of the international versions where the voice track is dubbed rather than subtitled. As only their voices are used, not 'live action' performances, the non-english language releases are essentially different movies with a totally different cast list.


Question: If George Lucas had a false page in the script to fool everyone into thinking that Obi-Wan killed Luke's father, then how did he get round the scene between Luke and Vader later (where Luke actually calls Vader 'Father')?

Chosen answer: Everything after the false ending page was hidden from Mark Hamill and the rest of the cast. The scene where Luke calls Vader "father" was filmed after Hamill had already found out the real truth that Vader is Luke's father.

The One Where Eddie Won't Go - S2-E19

Question: Why does Rachel compare the book they are reading to 'The Hobbit'?

Chosen answer: It sounds kind of like a fantasy book, the hobbit is just about the most famous fantasy book ever written.

Question: Does anybody know what "Meega Nala Queesta" means?

Chosen answer: The movie contains two languages one is English, and the other is Hawaiian. Meega translate to I or me, and Quessta translate to destroy. I don't know what Nala means, people are telling me it means no or want, so essentially "I want to destroy".

Or it could be I no destroy but since they hate peace so much, they basically hate him.

Question: What are the sound effects to produce the "strange in scary sound" in Lardass' stomach before he pukes for the first time?

Chosen answer: A cello.

Question: In the scene where the three main characters are in the Texas and are being bombarded , Dirk claims that the plates are 2 feet thick. They then discover the use of armor-piercing shells. Does he mean 2 inches? I believe the boat would sink if they were indeed 2 feet thick.

Chosen answer: While Dirk seems to be exaggerating slightly, there were certainly many classes of WWI and WWII battleships that had armor in excess of 18" thick in places. They floated just fine - in fact, they were notoriously difficult to sink.

Rooster of Doom

Question: Can someone give me an explanation to what happened to Eamon's dog?

Chosen answer: The Professor shot the dog early so it couldn't give a warning about him.


Question: What year is this movie meant to be set in?

Chosen answer: When Edna lectures Bob about the danger of capes, she names two superheroes and gives two dates for each of their deaths, the two years being 1957 and 1958. Both of these supers are seen at Helen and Bob's wedding, in the second row, meaning their wedding was before 1957. Information on Syndrome's computer would put Helen's last known activity as 1955, right in the correct time period. Assuming the "Sue the Supers" movement happened soon after their wedding, fifteen years later would put the setting of the movie around the early seventies.

Thanks I just spotted the dates and was wondering the time period.

Question: What is the "slide" that Mark finds in his room?

Chosen answer: It's never explained - possibly a fire escape or heating vent.


Question: What is Jerry's wife watching on TV when she is about to be kidnapped?
