Question: Might be a classical one, but I'm still clueless :) The story includes the imprisonment of humans because of the energy they produce. It's clear though that the human body cannot give back more energy that it requires to stay alive. Employing humans for that matter is simply a waste of energy. Maybe the humans there have this as an "urban legend" and the machines keep humans in this form for some other reason?

Chosen answer: Remember Morpheus mentions a type of fusion as well, which nicely blurs any power analysis we can do based just on body energy. The theory I've heard and quite like is that while power considerations are part of the reason, connecting billions of human brains together would also make for a hugely powerful parallel processing system, capable of all the computing power the machines need for both running the matrix and their own needs.

Question: Now i don't know much about missiles and such, but in the scene where the Israeli fighter jet is carrying the nuclear warhead, and is then shot down, well wouldn't the bomb blast that destroyed the plane also detonate the nuke attached as well? correct if i am wrong.

Chosen answer: Nope. A nuclear detonation requires a highly specific sequence of events to occur within the bomb - an explosion nearby wouldn't come close to producing those conditions. The construction of a nuclear bomb requires components to be placed in a highly specific configuration - damage to the bomb would disrupt that configuration and make it effectively impossible for the bomb to go off.

Question: Why didn't Timothy Dalton make any more Bond movies after this one?

Chosen answer: Dalton was still contracted to play Bond in the next Bond film, Goldeneye. However, due to legal battles between MGM and EON productions, the film was delayed so long that Dalton simply lost interest and quit his role. He said afterwards in 2007 that, "I was supposed to make one more but it was cancelled because MGM and the film's producers got into a lawsuit which lasted for five years. After that, I didn't want to do it any more."

Question: When the fellowship enters the Mines of Moria, they see all of the dead Dwarfs on the ground, and Legolas says "Goblins", and draws an arrow. What are Goblins, and why are they never shown in the movie?

rstill

Chosen answer: Actually they are shown in the movie. Goblins is simply a term used for the smaller breeds of Orc that tend to inhabit the subterranean places like Moria. They tend to be somewhat more intelligent and cunning than their larger siblings, to compensate for their lesser strength - a trait that Saruman and Sauron took advantage of when creating their warrior Orc breeds, the ones referred to as Uruk-Hai. Despite their physical and intellectual differences, all three, Orcs, Uruk-Hai and Goblins, are the same species.

Question: What's the song on the end credits of Spiderman 2?

Chosen answer: "Vindicated", by Dashboard Confessional, which is on the Spider-man 2 soundtrack.

Question: According to imdb.com, the woman who provided Snow White's voice in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs also provides the voice for a character named Juliet in this film. Does anyone know who this is supposed to be?

Chosen answer: In the film, when we hear a female voice ask, "Wherefore art thou Romeo?" it is in fact Juliet that asks that question - as in "Romeo and Juliet."

Super Grover

Question: What does the title have to do with the story, other than the reference to a work of art? I know many people think that the real Mona Lisa has a mysterious smile, but does that have anything to do with the film?

Krista

Chosen answer: There is a short discussion (I believe between Kirsten Dunst and Julia Roberts) about things not always being what they seem. They are speaking about the girls' lives, but it also is symbolic of the Mona Lisa smile. Whether she is really smiling is left up to the person viewing the portrait: is she smiling because she is happy? Is she trying to cover up grief/sorrow? Is she smiling at all?

Reformed Dispatcher

Question: Can Will Ferrell actually play the flute?

Chosen answer: Yes, he has played the flute since childhood.

Question: What's the name of the song when Vinny and Lisa make their first appearance in the town?

Chosen answer: The song is called "Mind Your Own Business" By Clivilles & Cole.

Question: In the scene where the main girl Erin goes into that trailer and looks at the photo then to the lady who has short hair with the baby she says "That's not your baby. You stole her." Who's baby did she steal? What does that have to do with the girl who shot herself?

Chosen answer: She stole the baby from the woman who shot herself at the beginning of the film.

Show generally

Question: How many Stargates were made by the set crew? Also, how many DHDs?

Chosen answer: There are two stargates. One that is set up permanently in the cheyanne mountain set, and one the is moved to locations. There are probably two or three DHD's.

Question: What is the song that is starting to play when Dewey Finn (Black) is assigning all the kids positions?

Chosen answer: The song playing is "Back in Black" by AC/DC.

Question: I thought I recognised the woman that pushes Forrest in line for the Vietnam veteran demonstration as a cameo of Sandra Bullock, and the woman Jenny as a hippie is playing guitar with (before the guy asks them to go to SF) as a cameo of Lisa Kudrow. Anyone knows whether this is correct?

Answer: The actress you think might be Sandra Bullock is listed as a actress named Hilary Chaplain.

Chosen answer: They are not listed on IMDB as such. Also by 1994, Sandra Bullock's only memorable appearance was Demolition Man (her real popularity started with Speed in 1994), and Lisa Kudrow was only known for the waitress on "Mad About You" - a minor role. Neither would have been a likely choice for a "cameo" role, yet at the same time would probably have charged too much for an extra/walk-on.

Question: During an outtake with the 3 aliens hanging from the roof of the car, one of them asks another if he made it into the first Toy Story movie. The other alien says, "On the letterbox (widescreen) copy." Is this true?

Chosen answer: Um, this is a joke. Pixar reframe their films for full-screen releases, so as not to lose any of the action, so, in terms of aliens appearing, there shouldn't be any difference between the widescreen and full-screen versions.

Question: why, being there so many sequences of nudity in the film, the woman in the funeral car Max brings for Noodles after he is released from jail has her breasts blurred?, why would this scene be conceived like that?.

Chosen answer: You have a censored version. The American R1 version has no such censoring.

Question: When Shrek, Donkey and Puss in Boots are in a barn or something because its raining, Donkey starts singing "Tomorrow", until he falls asleep. What does he say right before he falls asleep?

Chosen answer: As Donkey passes out he says, "I'm Coming Elizabeth," a reference to Fred Sanford from the sitcom "Sanford and Son" (1972).
