Question: At the end of the movie, did both Alex and Carter die by the sign?

Chosen answer: No. In Final Destination 2, Clear explains that Alex was killed 3 months later.

Answer: Carter was the only one killed by the sign, as shown when officer Burke from FD2 looked up Alex Browning after the pile up.

Question: Why does Rose get Jack to draw her if she is only going to give it to Cal to make him angry?

Chosen answer: You answered your own question. That is her only reason. She is showing Cal all that he will never get and that, obviously, someone else (of a lower class!) will.

Question: Do Russian sailors not use port and starboard? A few times Sean Connery used left and right.

Chosen answer: Russians say "pravy bort" and "levy bort" (right board, left board), and "pravo rulya"/"levo rulya" (steer right, steer left). There are no special naval terms for right and left.

Question: When Jean 'hears everything' at the museum, she hears a man yell "to the shelter" this suggests that she can hear all the way to Washington D.C. with her incoming increase of powers. My question is can the Phoenix hear the future? If you watch with the subtitles, you see as she's looking around, it says WOMAN- THEY'RE GONNA KILL HIM the voice is of Rogue in the scene where she bobby and john are in the tunnels after Logan closes the passage way.

Chosen answer: The Phoenix Force is a primal force of the universe and Jean is tapping into it. As such, she's heading for a point where she really doesn't have any limitations - in the comics, Phoenix destroyed an entire star system. A degree of precognition doesn't seem remotely out of the question.

Question: What exactly is this "life force" Neo sees after Bane blinds him?

Chosen answer: It is the connection he has to the Source. Like when he sees the Machine City and the Sentinels.

Question: Does Padme not age or something? Anikin has aged ten years between the first and second movie, but she looks the same. Please explain.

Chosen answer: She does age (she's human, just like Anakin) but the changes in her appearance are much more subtle. This is only natural; the change in appearance from an eight-year-old boy to an eighteen-year-old young man would be much more dramatic than, say, from a sixteen- or eighteen-year old girl to a twenty-six or twenty-eight-year old woman.

Phil C.

Question: When the titles are running at the end, just after the headlines have stopped, the screen goes to black and the first title you see is "Taj Mahal". Obviously, I know what the Taj Mahal is, but why is it mentioned in the titles?

Chosen answer: Taj Mahal is also the name of a blues singer who had a cameo role in the film (The Gatekeeper). He may have demanded a higher billing than the regular acting credits.

Question: You can't have a gun in school, but you can put a guillotine in your locker?

Chosen answer: It was a flare gun. I very much doubt that this is something that the faculty are aware of. Brian was obviously caught with the flare gun because it went off in his locker, whereas Bender has not been caught with the guillotine in his locker.

Question: In the movie, when you see Happy's dream (happy place) for the second time, you see Shooter "eat" Grandma's tongue, however, in the TV version, that part is cut out, why? There's nothing bad about that part.

Chosen answer: Maybe not to you but to a lot of people a scene in which Shooter graphically makes out with a elderly woman is a little disturbing, not something to be broadcast for children to see.

Question: A friend told me that Catherine Zeta-Jones was pregnant during the filming of Chicago. Is it true?

Answer: Yeah she was if you look closely during "I can not do it alone" you can see.

Chosen answer: No, she had said herself that she didn't get pregnant until just after filming was finished on "Intolerable Cruelty."

Question: A friend told me that Catherine Zeta-Jones was pregnant during the filming of Chicago. Is it true?

Answer: Yeah she was if you look closely during "I can not do it alone" you can see.

Chosen answer: No, she had said herself that she didn't get pregnant until just after filming was finished on "Intolerable Cruelty."

Question: In the scene where Vernita Greene and The Bride are talking to her daughter, right before she asks how old she is and again shortly after, on the DVD, what are the beeping noises in the background?

Chosen answer: The bleeping is used to block out The Bride's name, an homage to the "man with no name" of old kung-fu's. Her name is revealed in Volume 2.

Nick N.

Question: Sometime during the film the show the passing of several years by showing images of what happened during these years. I think it is at the time of the Vietnam War. A song is played in the background. Does anybody know what the name of that song is and whom by?

Chosen answer: Its "Imagine" by John Lennon.

Question: One of the mistakes on this site state that you can see Crutchy dancing without the use of his crutch. When and during which number?

Chosen answer: During the "Two for a Penny" sequence in Carrying the Banner, you can see Crutchy dancing in one of the back rows on the right without his crutch. You can also see him walking without it behind David during the first Sieze the Day when David sings "Arise and seize the day!"

Question: Is it just me or does this film seem to have some definite homosexual undertones when it comes to Patton? He dresses flamboyantly, wears lots of jewelry, designs uniforms, caresses his dead staff member, kisses a soldier tenderly after a battle. Did the writers do this intentionally and/or were there rumors about Patton's sexual orientation?

Chosen answer: It's just you.

Question: At the scene where Bartlett is running away from the pursuing Germans in the town, a car stops him. Bartlett says something in a foreign language to the German who steps out the car which makes the Germans drive away. Could someone please tell me what is said in the Bartlett/German conversation and what language does Bartlett speak in.

Chosen answer: It's German, although I can't quite make it all out. The Germans tell him to stop (sounds like one says "hey you" in English). He asks what this is all about and, in English, the soldier accuses him of being English. Bartlett acts offended at the idea, and at being threatened with a pistol. The soldier then asks if he's German, he says something in the affirmative, and the soldiers apologize as they climb back in the car.

Question: Catherine Zeta-Jones' character is always smoking a cigarette. Did Catherine Zeta-Jones really smoke for the film or is the cigarette fake?

Chosen answer: CZJ may be a smoker in real life, but to keep consistency and account for multiple takes productions use fake cigarettes. Otherwise "smoking" actors could go through dozens of packs each day of shooting, which would make even the most dedicated smoker ill.

Question: On the soundtrack Dimucci sings the song "Do it for our Country" as a solo number. In the film it's a duet with Sharon. Does anyone know why they changed it in the film, or let Peter Frechette sing it alone on the soundtrack?

Chosen answer: "Do It For Our Country" is a duet between Sharon and Louis. Maureen Teefy couldn't make it to the recording session, so Peter Frechette had to sing the whole song himself, which is why Maureen's vocals aren't on the movie's soundtrack. In some recordings her voice was dubbed in later.

Question: Towards the end of the film, Dr. Evil kills number 2 yet number 2 is alive in the next two films. Why? I've been told there's an alternative ending on the DVD that changes this. Is that true?

Chosen answer: Number 2 doesn't get killed. It is obvious from the attempt to kill Mustapha that the fire/chair thing is faulty, this is demonstrated in the second film by the fact that number 2 has a large burn scar on his face to show that he wasn't killed, just burned.

Kara

Question: Why does Rose say "artists need good light don't they?" when they enter her stateroom, even though she hasn't actually asked Jack to draw her yet?

Chosen answer: She probably had already asked him (he had all of his material with him after all); she just hadn't yet specified *how* she wanted to be drawn.
