Question: What differences are there between the original SNES version and the GBA remake?

Answer: The snes had better sound quality and more variety of music, but the GBA has brighter graphics and deeper colors. The GBA added a few more mini-games plus Karozene, and you can save at any time. But Diddy can't do continuous cartwheels on GBA. Most people who like the game still prefer the snes version.

Question: Am I missing something? How is it possible for McPherson to fall in love with Laura?

tipar

Answer: While investigating her supposed murder, McPherson interviews many people who knew Laura and gave their personal accounts about her. The more McPherson learns about the beautiful woman, the more intrigued he becomes, eventually almost to the point of obsession. He was more infatuated and physically attracted than actually being in love with her.

The Hollow Girl - S2-E6

Question: Is Fiona Shaw possessed by the child? The way she looks at the camera made me think of that.

Question: What caused the oxygen tank to overheat that led to the explosion?

Answer: In real life, there were a number of incidents that ended up damaging the number 2 oxygen tank, which was then installed in Apollo 13, without anyone realizing there was a dangerous problem. Exposed fan wires inside the tank caught the teflon lining of the tank on fire when the power fans were turned on for the third time. The following website explains the pre-flight issues that damaged the tank as well as the chain reaction of events after the fire. https://nssdc.gsfc.nasa.gov/planetary/lunar/ap13acc.html.

Question: Why are the officers wearing dress blues in the beginning of the movie? The replacement commander of the 110th has a chest full of ribbons...The black military police officer at the command center. Everyday military officers would be wearing Class A's or fatigues.

Answer: Although it's technically a mistake, it is common in films to show military officers in dress uniforms with medals and ribbons to show that particular soldiers are important. A layperson may not know military uniform protocols but they can certainly tell that dress uniforms with a lot of medals signifies high rank at a glance.

Question: In Child's Play 1,2 and 3, we learn that Chucky bleeds once he is human, so why would not the cops notice blood on the ground or wherever Chucky met his demise, test the blood and verify that it belongs to Charles Lee Ray, hence confirming Andy's and his mother's story?

R.J.Denton

Answer: The police would be very skeptical that a serial killer could transfer his soul into a child's toy. Even though in the first movie Detective Logan and his partner finally believed it, in the second movie it was stated that the police denied everything. Even though several people did survive Chucky's rampage, it could easily be chalked up to an overactive imagination brought on by severe psychological trauma.

Question: Is there a particular reason for the main character smiling at the end?

tipar

Answer: As a result of the tortures he endured at the hospital, Lockhart lost his mind. At the end, as he pedals away from the hospital and down the road, he grins maniacally because he is now quite mad.

Charles Austin Miller

Question: Two questions are puzzling me. 1. Considering the tactics that Ray used to take control of McDonald's from the brothers, couldn't it be said that he cheated and and conned the brothers out of their restaurant? 2. When Ray visits Mac in the hospital, he offers him a blank check to which the brothers agree. Why would they agree to such a thing instead of fighting to get their restaurant back?

Question: What's the deal with the card that Bruce has when he hacks the Russian's phone? It seems it has a scorpion image on it. Why did he hand it over to the bartender? Does it have anything to do with the hacking? Was it the same card the Russian dropped during the previous fight?

ricardoglez22

Answer: Probably because the bartender acts as an intermediary for the mercenary.

Answer: The card was the Russian mercenary's calling card. He recognized Bruce Wayne at the fight and dropped the card to see if Bruce was interested in acquiring his services. Bruce picked up the card and gave it to the bartender, which showed the mercenary that Bruce was indeed interested in meeting him.

But how would giving the card to a bartender in front of the mercenary (who is already there) show any interest in his services?

Question: When Alfred watches the senate bombing on the news, he finds one last refused check from Wallace Keefe (actually from Lex). But it has a drawing of the senate in flames, what is the purpose of this? It's completely against Lex's plan to frame Superman and make Batman fight him, because it shows that Wallace actually knows what is going to happen/he is the one who will blow up the building.

ricardoglez22

Chosen answer: The plan was not to frame Superman for the bombing, the authorities would know relatively quickly that a bomb was planted in the wheelchair. The plan was to goad Wallace into taking his grudge against Superman to extreme measures and actually carry out a terrorist action. Lex knows that Batman will ultimately blame Superman for putting Wallace in his deranged mental state and will feel compelled to act against Superman.

Question: Why doesn't Kay kill Anderson after he grabs her and takes the elevator up to Ma-Ma? Or at least, why doesn't Ma-Ma kill her when Kay comes in with her? They were intent on killing the Judges and didn't care about the consequences. So what was Ma-Ma hoping to accomplish having her as a hostage that she couldn't try to accomplish without one? At this point, she already had the 4 crooked Judges on their way.

Bishop73

Answer: Kay wanted to punish her for what she did to him earlier. Ma-Ma wanted leverage against Dredd should he get past her Judges.

MasterOfAll

Question: When Ratha said that he was gonna die was he referring to Freddie or Norman Osborn?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: He's talking about Norman Osborn. Dr. Connor is working on a cure for Norman and he has to hurry because Norman doesn't have a lot of time left (before dying). Dr. Connor even says "people die, even Norman Osborn." Freddie was just a lab mouse.

Question: When they are leaving the Baxter building, Coulson says "Are you going to tell them sir?" Then Fury says "One threat at a time Coulson" but what was the other threat?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Question: It is said that the reviewers of Rare Replay preferred to play the N64 Rare games in the compilation. Why is this, and did the creators of the game know that?

Answer: Because the N64 games created by Rare are considered some of the greatest of all time and are far more fun to play than some of Rare's older, more aged games and their newer, less favoured games. Since the point of the game is a 'compilation' of all of Rare's games, its more logical that the games were included, rather than the developers knowing that gamers will enjoy those games more.

Question: At the party Randy receives a phone call saying the Principal has been killed, and everyone leaves to go see his body. Who would have called Randy to say this? Most of his friends are at the party, and even if some of them aren't, no one is hanging around school at 7pm, and the cops definitely didn't call him, so who did?

Answer: This has already been asked. Copying the answer from the previous submission: Billy came to the party late, presumably because he was hanging the body. The school seems pretty deserted when the principal gets killed (he goes into the corridor and only the cleaner is there, presumably cleaning after school is out) so it's reasonable to assume no one would have missed him yet.

New today Answer: Roman Bridger, director. And brother. Well, half brother.

Alan Keddie

Answer: Maybe "the killer"?
