Question: Can anyone remember which of the brothers had "Veritas" tattooed on his hand? It was either the Sean Patrick character or the Norman character, one had veritas and the other libertas, but which was which?
Question: The theme of Greeks comes up a few times in the film. First in Edna's house, on the wall behind the door is a giant Greek mural and the statue outside is a stylised Greek soldier. Next, the password, Kronos, is the Greek Titan of time. Then later at the end of the film, there is a close up of a sign reading 'The Spartans' with a hoplite helmet. Is this just coincidence?
Question: The request "Fire for effect." is used in this and many other war films when calling in artillery support. What is the meaning of this term?
Question: In the scene where McClane kills the first terrorist,why doesn't he just shoot him? He wastes bullets and risks his life by fighting him. He's got a gun on him at point blank range,it would've been so much easier to just shoot him.
Question: Can someone please tell me why Peter Jackson cut out the chapter in the book about the hobbits rebelling against "Sharkey". I can understand it in the theatrical version (time restrictions) but he had all the time in the world for the extended version and he still didn't put it in. I thought the Hobbit rebellion was the best part of all the 3 books.
