Question: Why does Ben need to find the city of gold to beat the kidnap charge? The President's story of "We got trapped and he saved my life" would work just as well without the discovery.
Questions about specific movies, TV shows and more
These are questions relating to specific titles. General questions for movies and TV shows are here. Members get e-mailed when any of their questions are answered.
Question: The scene with Briony and the French soldier made absolutely no sense to me. They seem to go back and forth from knowing each other well, to having just met. What exactly am I missing?
Question: A while ago, it was leaked that Australian actor Christian Clark would be in the movie, and speculated that he would play Mister Sinister. However, after seeing the movie 2 times, I didn't notice neither Christian nor Mister Sinister. After trying a thorough internet search I couldn't reach a conclusion. Could anyone please give a thorough answer as to what happened (i.e. the scenes were cut, the actor or character was dropped)?
Question: I understand most of The Matrix and I get the whole "there is no spoon concept," too. However I don't get why Morpheus could not apply the same principles when he was captured by Smith and the agents. Why could he not break free from the handcuffs then because "there simply are no handcuffs"? Is it because he had serum and had his sunglasses taken off of him? Please explain. It's driving us nuts.
Question: For the scene where Joker burns the money, he says he is only burning his half. However, with Gambol already dead, the Russian and Lau about to be killed and Maroni in absentia, is he actually burning all (or nearly all) the money? It seems to mirror the bank job (systematically eliminating the equal share) and in general the Joker's twisted sensibilities.
Question: After Eden McCain shoots herself to prevent Sylar from consuming her power, it's stated that her body was found in a river, presumably dumped by The Company. Throughout the show, The Company have been shown to be a highly resourceful organisation. Why, with all that resourcefulness, would the company dump her in a river? Why not just cremate her?
Question: [Minor spoiler] I'm curious, because I can't remember 100%. Ryan Reynolds as Wade is very similar to Deadpool in the comics. The bad guy in the final fight, however, is nothing like the comic Deadpool, and I'm fairly sure that while it's of course strongly implied that he's the product of experiments on Wade, it's never explicitly stated. Stryker makes a reference to a "dead pool", and Wolverine says something like "Wade, is that you?" (with no answer), but as far as I can remember there's no concrete connection between Ryan Reynolds' character at the start and that final bad guy beyond implication/our assumption. I'm largely curious because there was talk of a Deadpool spinoff with Ryan Reynolds, and with the changes to the character, plus the events at the end of the film, that might be difficult, so I'm wondering if they left a deliberate loophole so if they make a Deadpool film they can just say "no, that wasn't him - everyone just assumed it was. The real Deadpool was off somewhere else". Make sense?
Question: This is about the poker game on the coffee cup the cop gets. Was this an actual contest or something back in the early 90s? Would the cop have actually won something for the "full-house" or were those cups printed just for fun?
