Question: Hypothetically, what would happen if everyone in the world, or at least those with the means to watch the tape, saw it, copied it and passed it on to someone else? Would the curse, in a sense, die?

Chosen answer: Hypothetically, it could be assumed that the curse would die. But it would be nearly impossible for someone to not drop the ball on it and inadvertently let the curse continue.

Question: In the film, Jesus has several visions of Satan, beginning in Gethsemane with the snake scene. These visions are not chronicled in the Gospels. Is there another source, or should the visions be considered artistic license?

Chosen answer: In addition to his own artistic license, Gibson actually uses several sources besides the Bible including St. Anne Catherine Emmerich's "The Dolorous Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ" and Mary of Agreda's "The Mystical City of God".

Myridon

Question: The very last scene shows Becky with longer hair than she previously had and Arnie with shorter hair. Which one, if either, is wearing a wig and did they shoot this scene first or last?

Chosen answer: They shot it last and they didn't wear wigs.

Question: Does anyone know where I can get the plans for the Black Pearl? If not, maybe the HMS Dauntless? And what is the status of those ships? (i.e. blown up, put away, etc.).

Chosen answer: Neither ship existed - they were both shells, built over large barges. The only real ship was the Interceptor, in reality named the Lady Washington, and even that was modified for the film. The Black Pearl was modelled on a real ship that stands in a museum in Stockholm.

Question: What cartoon is playing on the T.V. when Leatherface kills Kemper?

Show generally

Question: Can the Griffins understand what Stewie says (like the audience can), or does it just sound like gibberish?

Chosen answer: Of course they can understand him, they talk to him all the time. They just think he is being silly or a baby when he expresses a want to take over the world.

Question: Where in this movie is 1138 said/shown, if it is?

Chosen answer: The number appears albeit almost invisibly on Boushh's (Leia in disguise) helmet. While visible in photos of the props, it's unclear on screen.

Darius Angel

Question: Can someone please explain to me why Erica's vampire fangs are so much longer and sharper than anyone else's? (When Michael wakes up at the mansion and Erica is hanging off the ceiling, you can really see them). Even in full vampire mode, all the others' teeth seem to pale in comparison. Why is she so special?

Chosen answer: Not all people have the same size teeth. Why should vampires be any different?

Grumpy Scot

Question: What is the name of the song that plays when the car is being lifted at the airport by the thing spinning?

tylerasktaylorsteckleralexdenny

Chosen answer: That would be "In the Hall of the Mountain King". It is the final movement of Edvard Grieg's classical work, Peer Gynt Suite No. 1.

BGraz

Question: Does the photo at the end with Sy and the family actually happen or is this just Sy imagining what life could have been like with them?

Tallicame

Chosen answer: This is mentioned on the DVD commentary - it's deilberately open ended so one can interpret it as either it's Sy imagining what he wants to happen OR it's what really happened.

Neil Jones

Question: At the briefing it's pointed out that there's a hospital, school, etc. around the factory they're bombing, and Dennis is very adamant about getting the bombs "right in the pickle barrel" so a lot of innocent people don't get hurt. But the planes are spread out over a large area in the sky, and are also moving when the bombs are dropped, so wouldn't the bombs land over a large area and not just in the limited vicinity of the factory?

Krista

Chosen answer: It would seem that every plane's Norden bombsight would drop from different angles, etc., each designated for a common target. So, 2 planes could be higher, lower, ahead or behind the target and each hit the target, if the bombadiers had an accurate fix on the target.

Beer - S2-E5

Question: Can anyone hear the (heavily slurred) words of the ending song in this episode - or is it just random garbage?

Moose

Chosen answer: Black Adder couldn't hold his beer. The art of boozing he's not mastered. And I, your merry balladeer, Am also well and truly plastered. Black Adder, Black Adder, a bit like Robin Hood. Black Adder, Black Adder, but nothing like as good. Black Ad(hic), Black Adder, I thought that he had died. Black Adder, Black Adder, our writers must have lied.

Tailkinker

Question: My friend told me that there were facts missing from this movie - for example, the involvement of the UN troops in Somalia. Is this true?

Chosen answer: It depends on what facts they are talking about. The involvement of the UN troops in relation to the events of the movie is accurate. The UN troops as well as the US 10th Mountain Division where involved in Somalia in different areas.

Question: Can anyone tell me the name of all the themes that are used in the trailer?

Chosen answer: The music used in the trailer was created specially - it's based on the music from Romeo + Juliet.

Show generally

Question: I know that in "Fool for Love" Cecily is played by the same actress that plays Halfrek. So, when we see Hallie in "Older and Faraway" and she whispers "William," when she notices Spike, is this directly related to that? I know that names are often changed when becoming a Vengeance demon (example: Aud-Anya), so is Cecily the same character as Halfrek?

Chosen answer: Yes. Rocha confirmed that her characters are the same in an interview.

Phoenix

Question: In the theatrical trailer, we see a scene of Eomer grieving for a dead person, presumably during or after the battle for Minas Tirith. This scene is not in the theatrical version of the movie. Will it be in the extended version? And who is the dead person? Theoden (Eomer's uncle)? Or some other fallen warrior that Eomer was very fond of? Thanks.

Chosen answer: This scene found its way into the extended edition of Return of the King. The scene shows Eomer discovering his sister Eowyn on the battlefield, presumably grievously wounded.

Question: I think it's just a joke, but is the "token black guy"'s hair changing everytime he's on camera, i.e. afro, buzzcut, cornrows, etc.

Chosen answer: He's supposed to represent the "token black guy" from a lot of teen type movies including the various hairstyles that were worn in those films.

Honey, I Shrunk the Rangers (2) - S5-E17

Question: The Rangers and the Blue Centuriate were shrunk. The Rangers slowly turned into flies. Why didn't the Blue Centuriate?

Chosen answer: The Rangers are human. Blue Centurion is a robot/cyborg.
