Day 2: 8:00 A.M.-9:00 A.M. - S2-E1

Question: In the O.C., what was in the folder Eric Rayburn gave to Palmer regarding Second Wave?

Chosen answer: It's never revealed on camera, but judging from Palmer's conversation with the Middle Eastern Prime Minister soon after, it can be presumed the folder contains proof of Second Wave terrorist camps operating on the enemy country's soil with funding.

Question: Can someone explain what the guys in white suits wanted with Matt at the end of the film when he was infected (Why would they want to contain him instead of treating him with the antidote?). The other question was with Alice (Milla Jovovich) what exactly were they doing with her and how come nothing happened to her in that hospital. Did the zombies just decide to leave her alone?

Chosen answer: Matt was infected with a T-virus from a second-generation Licker with human DNA (drawn from Spence). Umbrella has no other research project like him and believes that he may be useful for the Nemesis research strain (using the T-virus to create directed but monstrous mutations in humans for killing machines). Alice was deemed too great a security risk to release, so they experimented with a modified T-virus on her to create a more powerful soldier - she was under observation at the end. The zombies couldn't get into her room because the door was locked and don't have the problem-solving abilities necessary to open the door, so they went searching for more accessible prey. Much of this is explained more clearly in the sequel.

Phoenix

Deja Vu All Over Again - S1-E22

Question: What is the song called that is played at the end, and who sings it?

Chosen answer: You're probably talking about 'Calling All Angels' by Jane Siberry. It's available on her album 'Whe I Was a Boy.'

Question: Is it true that Cirdan the Shipwright can be seen near the end of the movie? If so, which actor plays Cirdan?

Chosen answer: It's true, yes, you can see him, standing on the dock at the Grey Havens, behind Galadriel, Elrond and Celeborn. He's also seen in the prologue to the Fellowship of the Ring - he's the elder of the two male elves who possess Rings (the other being Gil-galad). Cirdan was played by Michael Elsworth.

Question: What did Cher mean when she said, "this is a bigger disaster than Malibu"? What happened to Malibu?

Chosen answer: Malibu is a hazardous place to live. It's constantly threatened by wildfires, which burn out the underbrush. Then when it rains, there's nothing on the ground to keep the mud from sliding down the hills, so mudslides are a problem, too. She was probably referring to one of the many times that this has happened.

Krista

Question: Does anyone think that Harry may not have forgotten about the sphere in the end? He seem awfully calm while Norman and Beth look confused.

Chosen answer: He's also a psychiatrist, he's used to keeping calm while others are upset. But it is certainly possible he remembers it. Why not?

Grumpy Scot

Question: Is there a reason the dumpster they threw B-Rad in was full of Wonderbread and nothing else?

Chosen answer: "Wonderbread and whitebread" are derogatory terms used by black men to describe a white man. It can be mean or good-natured, like most put-downs.

Grumpy Scot

Question: What is the name of the song in the trailer and who sang it?

Chosen answer: In the trailer the song is Red Tape, by Agent Provocateur.

Ben W Bell

Question: Does anyone know what exactly happens to Shmi (Anakin's mum) while enslaved by the Tusken Raiders or is this something that George Lucas leaves for us to ponder.

Chosen answer: She's been very badly treated - quite possibly tortured, maybe to gain information about the farm in preparation for a possible Tusken raid. She's not a young woman, who's led a pretty rough life, and her body's simply given up on her - from what's said, it's remarkable that she held out as long as she did.

Question: Whatever happened to the Twins that work for the Frenchman? They do not appear at all in "Revolutions," or at least not as major characters.

Chosen answer: Well, they get defeated. They probably weren't killed, as they reverted to Ghost form (and were still alive when they did it, as they were screaming) which would repair any damage they sustained, but i can't imagine them being willing to go back to the French guy, if he's as powerful as he's made out to be. They're probably just in hiding somewhere.

Gary O'Reilly

Question: Why does Evelyn get a Purple Heart? As far as I understand, the only way to get it, is if you are wounded in combat.

Chosen answer: From Dec 7, 1941 to Sept 22, 1943, the Purple Heart was also awarded for meritorious performance of duty. For wounds, "in combat" is much more restrictive than the actual requirements. Any injury caused directly or indirectly by a hostile foreign agency counts, including friendly fire if it was intended to hit an enemy.

Question: During the go-cart race, several shoppers are sent flying by the errant carts, one of them an old man who yells "Little rascals" at the kids. He's not listed in the credits but I could swear the old man is Robin Williams in makeup.

Chosen answer: I tried looking this up on www.imdb.com and couldn't find anything about Robin Williams there. This site says their cast list is a complete one. My only sugguestion is to watch it again and see if there is a list of extras in the credits somewhere. Maybe that's all the part was, an extra.

Question: Anyone know when or if this film's released in the UK?

Chosen answer: According to the IMDb, it's currently slated to be released here on December 17th.

Question: In the scene where Taye Diggs is telling the guys at dinner about the course he was taking with his girlfriend (I believe it was tantric love making or something like that), can anyone tell me if what he was talking about is really true?

Lummie Premium member

Chosen answer: Yes, there are many books and courses devoted to Tantric sex.

Copycat - S2-E5

Question: What song is being played when they find the woman in the car, and the paramedics are getting her on to the trolley?

Chosen answer: "One of These Mornings" by Moby.

LuMaria 1

Question: Would a PUR water purifier filter out the disease in the water?

Chosen answer: It really depends on whether the disease is virus or bacteria, in addition to what size it is as to whether a filter would keep it out. Boiling the water would almost certainly do it.

Grumpy Scot

Question: On the way to Helm's Deep, Theoden is riding Snowmane. After the battle with the Wargs and the company finally arrives inside the great fortress, Theoden dismounts off of a brown horse...where did Snowmane go?

Chosen answer: Snowmane was presumably either killed during the battle against the Wargs and their riders, or injured to the extent that Theoden didn't want to risk riding him.

Question: Why didn't Jack say I love you to Rose when she said it to him in the end? I thought they both loved each other.

Chosen answer: They do - but saying I love you in a situation like that is almost like you're saying goodbye...Jack didn't want to say that he loved her because he didn't want to seem like he was giving up - presumably he thought he'd get the chance to say it many times in the future, rather than saying it on their death bed.

Sam Johnson

Question: Hypothetically, what would happen if everyone in the world, or at least those with the means to watch the tape, saw it, copied it and passed it on to someone else? Would the curse, in a sense, die?

Chosen answer: Hypothetically, it could be assumed that the curse would die. But it would be nearly impossible for someone to not drop the ball on it and inadvertently let the curse continue.

LuMaria 1

Question: In the film, Jesus has several visions of Satan, beginning in Gethsemane with the snake scene. These visions are not chronicled in the Gospels. Is there another source, or should the visions be considered artistic license?

Chosen answer: In addition to his own artistic license, Gibson actually uses several sources besides the Bible including St. Anne Catherine Emmerich's "The Dolorous Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ" and Mary of Agreda's "The Mystical City of God".
