Question: What could possibly be the purpose of the photograph that was placed on the box in the wall? If it was there, then Lawrence was supposed to take it with the box together - but he fails to notice it. Was that their only chance to get out of there alive or what?

Chosen answer: There was no photograph on or in the box on the wall. The contents were: A cell phone, 2 cigarettes, a lighter and a note. The picture was in Lawrence's wallet which told them to look for the X on the wall.


Question: I know that two of Blaster's cassette robots are called Cubbie and Bolts, but what are the other two's names?

Chosen answer: Actually, you are wrong about the first two. The cassettes are: Eject (robot), Grand Slam (tank), Raindance (jet), Ramhorn (rhino), Rewind (robot), and Steeljaw (lion).

Question: When James Bond goes to see Professor Dent at his office, it's morning. After he leaves, Dent goes out to Dr. No's island and picks up the caged tarantula. The next time we see Bond, he's returning to his hotel, and it's night, probably late, as he goes to sleep soon after. Where did Bond go between seeing Dent in the morning and returning to his hotel that night?

Chosen answer: It's obvious what he does between those times. In "Goldfinger," Felix Leiter sees him just moseying off between an event and the climax of the movie and says to his pal "Ten'll get you one it's a drink or a dame." No doubt Bond's using his time...productively.

Question: The Alien asked why is the main character so special. Well, why is she so special? Why is she the only one to not forget her child when obviously other parents have forgotten theirs. It can't be the mother/child bond since others have forgotten.

Chosen answer: She is special since she apparently is the only one not to have forgotten.


Question: When Dr. Octavius is out cold in the hospital, he has bandages covering his eyes. Since his eyes were protected during his demonstration and when he took them off to see his wife had been hit by debris, why would he need the bandages? His eyes were never damaged.

Chosen answer: As the surgeons were going to be using metal cutting equipment, it makes sense they don't want bits falling into his eyes - the surgeons themselves all have protective goggles on. His eyes were also arguably damaged from the light of the artificial sun, despite the protective coverings. It's why he's wearing sunglasses for the rest of the film. It's also noted in the comics that Doc Ock's eyes were damaged during his accident, thus making him sensitive to bright light.

Question: Two songs were playing in Sebastian's car. One song as noticed twice was 'Power Struggle'. He was listening to another song later on in the movie. What was the name of this song and who plays it?

Chosen answer: The song is Charlie Big Potato by Skunk Anansie. Very good song when played very loud.

Question: I was really confused by the ending, who were the three figures we kept seeing, and what were they trying to do?

Chosen answer: The figures are spirits who figured out how to contact the living, like Michael Keaton's wife. But where his wife wants him to help others, the three spirits are evil and want to only do bad things.

Question: What happened at the end? How did they get out of that fix?

Chosen answer: We may never know. The ending was originally a set-up for a sequel, but the sequel never materialized.

Question: When Zatara goes to Mr. Morell's house to find out information about Dantes and about the others that he wants revenge on, why do they keep showing Morell's granddaughter looking at Zatara? Does she realize that he really is Dantes or is it some other reason?

Chosen answer: I believe it's just because there is a dirty smelly man that she doesn't recognise visiting her ailing father, she just wants to keep an eye on things.

Question: In the scene where the infantry is retreating from the first attack on the arachnid planet (the night attack) we see that Rico has been seriously wounded to his leg and cannot even stand up. He was all alone and then we see him kill the first attacking bug with a shotgun mode of the rifle, but when the second bug attacks it seems that he didn't kill the bug and it killed Rico (he screams a lot). Later on, he is in a liquid tank, and his leg is being healed. My questions are these: Who saved him ? How did someone saved him when he died, or even if he didn't die who bothered returning for him when no one was sure if he's dead or just missing in the squad being somewhere else? How come he was in a healing tank while the military filed him as "DEAD" ?

Chosen answer: When Rico, Diz and Ace report to the Roughnecks, they find out that Lt. Rasczak saved him. He was listed as dead, because Carmen checked just hours after the battle. With the MI's huge personnel losses, all the dead and wounded hadn't been confirmed yet. He was listed as dead because he didn't return with his unit.

Grumpy Scot

Question: On the DVD menu there is a gallery option and when you look through the pictures there is one which is certainly not from Halloween Resurrection, which Halloween film is it from?

Chosen answer: It is part of a deleted scene which wasn't included on the DVD. It is about a couple who are camping out and Michael steals their car.

Question: I don't understand why we hear a very high pitched ringing sound sometimes (like when the detectives find the bodies in the attic, or when Karen sees what really happened in the house).

Chosen answer: That ringing sound is the sound the girl makes when she is getting ready to kill someone.

Question: Why, since no one knows that Violette is Fern, does one of the girls come up to Violette and say, "so I hear you were the last person to see Liz Purr alive"?

Chosen answer: Because that was deliberately spread as a rumor to make Violette even more mysterious and intriguing.


Question: Very near the beginning, Marianne is playing this tune that she says was her father's favourite and Elanor tells her to stop. What is the tune and is it possible to find music for it? It's not the 'Weep You No More Sad Fountains' one.

Chosen answer: This song is titled "Father's Favourite" on the movie soundtrack and you can listen to a sample here: You can also purchase sheet music for the song here: music&type=rec.


Question: Does 1138 appear at all in this movie? I don't remember seeing it.

Chosen answer: At the end of the film, after Anakin destroys the control ship and all the wardroids shut down, it can be seen written on the back of one of the droids that were guarding Jar-Jar and Captain Tarpals.


Question: What is the name of the song at the start of the movie? It's by Sean Paul.

Chosen answer: "Three Little Birds" by Sean Paul & Ziggy Marley.


Question: Can anyone tell me what exactly a kneazle is? I know Crookshanks is part kneazle, as stated in Corrections, but I don't know what that means.

Chosen answer: To summarise their entry in "Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them", a companion book written for charity by J K Rowling (under the pseudonym of "Newt Scamander", a Kneazle is a small cat-like creature which is intelligent, independent and occasionally aggressive which, should it take a liking to a witch or wizard, makes an excellent pet. They have an uncanny ability to detect unsavoury or suspicious characters and can be relied upon to guide their owner safely home if lost.


Christmas Every Day - S2-E1

Question: Why does Timmy wish for Christmas every day so he can get more toys? Couldn't he just ask Cosmo and Wanda for all the toys he wants?

Chosen answer: He didn't wish for it just to get more toys. He did it because he enjoys all of the Christmas experience, including his Mom and Dad being able to stay home, and not having to be babysat by Vicki.

Question: Does Bruce Banner remember anything he does when he becomes the Hulk?

Chosen answer: There are varying interpretations of Bruce's memory in the comics. The most common one is that Bruce has vague memories of what happens while he is the Hulk (i.e. fear, hunger, images), but because the Hulk's brain is less "evolved" he can't remember specific information, like where he went or what he did. The converse is also true: The Hulk has vague memories of Bruce's life as well...he recognizes people that Bruce knows but doesn't know anything about them.

Question: In the preview for this movie, there is chanting in the background of something that ends with 'When you see him count to five, pray that you will stay alive.' What, if anything, is this?

Chosen answer: This is a made up children's rhyme just like the "Nightmare on Elm Street" series has "One, two, Freddy's coming for you, three, four, better lock the door,..."
