New this month Question: Why do Borg always attack earth with only one single ship? We already know from ST: Voyager that Borg have so many ships in the delta-quadrant that they sometimes attack with 10 or more ships at the same time. Why don't they just send 2 or 3 of their cubes next time? Borg knows that the Federation needed their very last resources and a lot of luck to defeat the Borg Cube last time (Battle of Wolf359). So 2 ships at least should do the job this time. Instead they again send one cube and risk defeat.

Goekhan

New this month Answer: The Borg think like machines. They have calculated that 1 cube is enough to conquer Earth so they send 1 cube. Both times they got defeated because of incalculable events. Both times they didn't have a reason to send more than 1 cube.

lionhead

New this month Answer: The Borg don't care that much about Earth, or losing a single cube. They are mostly testing the water before fully expanding towards the Alpha Quadrant. Their space is in the Delta Quadrant and still a long way from expanding into the Alpha Quadrant.

New this month Question: What does Joey mean when he says "quarters, or rolls of quarters?" when he replied to the lady that says she can "pick up quarters with her toes"?

New this month Answer: She says quarters, but then starts sliding her foot up his thigh and demonstrates that her toes are more dextrous than he first realised.

Jon Sandys

New this month Answer: This can be answered two ways. Joey could be asking if she is nimble enough with her toes to be able to pick up an individual quarter as well as grab an entire roll of them. However, this is Joey, and he is likely implying a sexual double entendre to the meaning of "rolls of quarters" by implying they are phallic in shape.

New this month Question: What happened to Abby the Elf? She was in the second movie and should have been young enough to have been in the third movie.

New this month 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?

New this month 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.

lionhead

New this month 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.

New this month 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.

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

New this month 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?

New this month 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.

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

New this month 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.

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

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

raph

New this month 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.

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

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

New this month Answer: It does. They find her dead at one point.

New this month Question: Was it ever established in the show whether Hyacinth could drive or not?

Neil Jones

New this month Question: How does Coraline's mom know which key unlocks the door?

New today Answer: Maybe because the house keeper tell her before they bought the house... I don't know, its just what I think.

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

New this month 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.

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

New this month 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.

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

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

New this month 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.

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

New this month 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.
