Question: Is the villain Russel Van Pelt the son or nephew of the hunter Van Pelt from the first movie?
Question: Are there any other Alan Parrish references in this movie other than the treehouse Alex had been living in?
Question: Who was the real commander of the Serbian army when O'Grady was stranded behind enemy lines?
Question: Why doesn't Barbossa use Blackbeard's sword to control his and Salazar's ship in battle? It isn't broken because he brings back the Pearl.
Question: Whenever the detective watches the surveillance tape from Susan's work, why does Kayako say "I know something about Peter"?
Question: This an odd question, but why are there no smartphones or smartphone-like devices in the SW universe? These are reasonably advanced pieces of technology that would be appropriate for such a time period. A few situations would also have been easier with phone communication. Smartphones were still very new when "Revenge of the Sith" was being filmed, so I understand why the original trilogy and prequels don't show them - the creators were not thinking about them.
Question: I recently saw this movie for the first time in decades, but didn't see something I know I saw when watching this on TV in the 80s. Back then I periodically saw a few seconds of a sunset over the ocean (or similar to that) with mellow music playing now and then between certain scenes. Now I can't find this in the movie anymore. Does anyone else remember this or are those sunsets from another movie (same timeframe - late 70s)?
