Question: Near the end, where you see the Jedi ignite their Lightsabres, Eeth Koth (the one with horns) is shown to have a green Lightsabre. So why in Star Wars: Clone Wars, does he have a red Lightsabre, is it because red = bad guy?

Chosen answer: Without having seen Episode 3, no-one can probably answer this correctly. It can be assumed to be one of two things (1) He has indeed become a "bad guy" or (2) He takes a lightsaber from a "bad guy" and uses it to fight.

XIII

Question: There is a short scene with a group of African-American youths on a staircase playing this dice game where they throw the dice and take money, or something along those lines. This game has been featured in many other films. What is this game called, and what exactly do you do in it?

Chosen answer: This is almost exactly like the casino game 'Craps'. Except you are only trying to roll your original number. If you roll a '7' before your original number then you lose. If you roll your original number before the '7', then you win. The other crap rules usually do not apply.

Question: What is it with Rick Masters and shooting people in the face? I counted three deaths that way.

Cubs Fan Premium member

Chosen answer: If you want to be reasonably certain of an instant kill, headshots are the way to go.

Tailkinker Premium member

Answer: Rick can only be implicated in shooting one person in the face, and that is not seen. His henchman shoots two people in the face.

Question: What exactly was Scotty's reason as to why giving the Company boss the formula for the one inch glass wouldn't alter the future? He gave a brief response, but I honestly can't think of any reason why it wouldn't do any future damage.

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: Scotty says "Why? How do you know he didn't invent the thing!" If the man was in fact the inventor, this would only cause a slight causality loop problem - he "invents" it because they gave it to him, but they only know it because he "invented" it. However, since Sulu said earlier in the movie that it was about 150 years too early for transparent aluminum, it would seem they do know this, so it wasn't a smart thing to do. Of course, the real flaw in the plot is that they need the tank to be transparent at all.

Myridon

Question: The address for Omni Presents is something like 77526 23rd St. Does anyone know if there's a hidden Biblical or religious reference in those numbers?

Matty Blast

Chosen answer: It's 77256 23rd St. The #'s spell out "Psalm" on a phone number pad. So it's Psalm 23 - "The Lord is my Shepherd...".

Brotherly Love (2) - S3-E2

Question: In the final few scenes of this story, DS Beck has abducted David Harvey and has taken him to the top of a tower block in order that they can both leap off. Fitz and Penhaligon race to the top to try to talk Beck out of it. In the original broadcast on UK TV (1995), Fitz speaks with Beck at length on the rooftop (as in the novel), but in all repeats and subsequent VHS/DVD releases this scene is missing and has never been seen since. Now, Fitz only manages to reach the rooftop as Penhaligon is looking over the side after Beck has jumped pulling Harvey with him. Is this scene un-cut on the Region 1 DVD of this show? (I don't want to buy it just to find the same cut version again).

02:25:00 - 02:26:45

Chosen answer: I still own on tape the 1995 UK TV broadcast version of that episode, and it definitely doesn't have Fitz talking Beck out of jumping. It is definitely in the novel adaptation of 'Brotherly Love', but as far as I know never made it to the final cut of the TV version. I'm presuming therefore the scene wouldn't exist on the Region 1 DVD. The only TV version I have ever known to be of that scene is Fitz just turning up after Beck has jumped and then comforting Penhaligon. A few scenes did get lost from the original broadcast to the subsequent DVD/VHS releases though, but as far as I'm aware that was never one of them.

Question: When Gabriel is lying on Constantine she has lots of tags on her wrists, does anyone know what these say and what they mean?

Chosen answer: The armbands are human emotion. When she grabs his throat, you can see the words "sorrow" and "passion".

Question: I watched the original version and have recently watched the director's cut. Unless I'm missing something, I couldn't notice any difference between the two. Was the difference really that subtle, or was the director's cut no different from the theatrical release? And if so, why label it the director's cut?

Chosen answer: The extended version that I've seen is twelve minutes longer than the original and contains a number of alternate versions of already existing scenes. However, there are no particularly significant or long scenes added - it's more just the occasional character moment here and there that boosts the length, so, if it's been a while since you've actually seen the original, I can easily see how you might not have registered many of the additions - I had a certain difficulty working out which bits were new myself.

Question: Roughly what percent of this movie was actually real as opposed to CGI?

manthabeat Premium member

Chosen answer: About 95% is CGI. The only real part of the movie was the actors themselves (and small objects they handle), with the exception of Dr. Totenkopf, portrayed using archive footage of Laurence Olivier. Everything else was CGI.

Guy

Question: It's obvious that Jo still has feelings for Bill at the beginning of the film, so why, after he sort of admits that he still has feelings for her, does she purposefully go ahead and sign the divorce papers, after purposefully not doing so in the beginning?

Krista

Chosen answer: Jo finally signs the divorce papers after she sees how upset Bill's fiance is getting after all the near misses with the tornados. She also sees that Bill does care for his new fiance and she finally decides not to stand in the way of his new relationship, even though it did not work out in the end.

Mark English

Question: Was Christina Ricci's arm cast written in the script, or was her arm really broken and they kept her in the role anyway? The cast just seems like an inconvenient and cumbersome thing for an actor to deal with, given that it really lends nothing of importance to the story.

Krista

Chosen answer: It was very relevant to the story. Because Sadie's arm was in a cast, she couldn't get a job. Without a job, she had to move back home to her parents.

The Bully / Just One Bite - S2-E17

Question: In the episode "The Bully" why can't Flats beat up Spongebob? Spongebob's spongeness has never saved him from injury before or after this episode.

Mark English

Chosen answer: As Spongebob explained in the certain episodes he has no bones so the force of the flats punches have no effect. To be more technical there is nothing solid that Flats can punch into and hence why it has no effect. Spongebob has never really been injured and there really isn't any incidents I can recall that his "spongeness" ever came into question of being hurt or injured.

Lummie Premium member

Answer: He does have bones in some episodes.

Question: Jack and Marv were both innocent men who were falsely accused of crimes they didn't commit. Since they both know this why in the world did they both sign false confessions claiming they were the ones who broke the law?

Chosen answer: Marv signed the confession since they threatened to kill someone close to him. Jack confessed so he can get out of jail quicker.

Toolio

Question: Who was the man that was with the woman in the red dress, and why did he kill her?

Chosen answer: Josh Hartnett is known as 'The Man' and is a professional hitman. He killed the woman in the red dress because she hired him to do so, which is why he said 'I won't know what she's running from' and 'I'll cash her check in the morning.'

Toolio

Question: Which scene was the one Quentin Tarantino directed? Please don't mention actors because I'm lousy with names. Which part exactly was it?

Chosen answer: Quentin Tarantino directed the scene where Dwight was having a conversation with Jackie-Boy's head.

Toolio

Question: How much of the cursed tape do you have to watch to become cursed with the "seven days" threat? All of it? Or would even seeing two seconds of it Affect you?

Hamster Premium member

Chosen answer: Since the girl in the second movie lived because she covered her eyes, you'd have to watch the whole thing.
