Question: What is Peter's (Jeremy's) real eye color? In the movie it sometimes is green and sometimes blue.

Emily

Chosen answer: It's blue. Source: www.jeremysumpter.com.

Question: What is the song played near the end, and who sings it? (The "Alleluia" one.)

Chosen answer: The song is called Hallelujah, written by Leonard Cohen and performed by Rufs Wainwright.

Dr Wilson

Question: Is it ever specified in this movie or in any of the books or biographies written about the Blues Brothers exactly where, when or how Jake dies?

rabid anarchist

Chosen answer: No. We only know that he died sometime during his jail term. There's no more explanation after that.

Gavin Jackson

Question: Ben Affleck first met Uma Thurman at a party just before he was offered and accepted the three year job. Surely he would have recognized her after having his memory wiped even if he could not remember any of the time they spent together.

Answer: He does recognize Rachel from the party as well as when he when he saw her at Allcom. The only things he doesn't remember are the last three years of his life since starting the project. So, while he does remember her, the three years they spent together while at Allcom are a total blank. This recognition is shown when he meets with Porter who helps him escape.

Chosen answer: Do you remember every person you've ever talked to at a party? Didn't think so. His memory isn't restored back to perfect condition - he's still had three years to forget about details at the party. He remembers things like the origins of the deal because it was important.

Question: What is the fast-paced music towards the end of the (final) trailer?

Chosen answer: Gabriel Yared was originally doing the score for Troy, however Wolfgang Peterson believed that Yared's score was too "old fashioned" and therefore employed James Horner to redo the score. It's possible the music from the trailer was that written by Yared.

Pet Cemetery - S5-E5

Question: Frank found a small amount of money with his metal detector at the end. He left saying he would buy a "yoohoo". Does anyone know what that is?

Chosen answer: The original Yoo-Hoo is a chocolate flavored drink in a bottle, but there are other flavors, most popular being Double Fudge Yoo-Hoo and Strawberry Yoo-Hoo.

Question: Miranda looks and cries over some pictures of her and her husband when she escaped to her own house, and decides to drive out to the creek he said he was going to, earlier in the film. What did she think he was doing there to begin with? She didn't seem familiar with the place when she arrived.

Chosen answer: She thought he was having it renovated. Possibly as a weekend or vacation home. So, she probably wouldn't have had tons of reasons to go out there, at least until it was finished.

Question: During the medley at the beginning of the film, does anyone know what the first song is that Deloris begins to sing? It sounds like it starts off "Starlight..."

Craig Bryant

Chosen answer: The first song is "Love Child" by Diana Ross and the Supremes. The first words in the medley are "I started life".

Question: The question of the car braking is to why is the car actually braking. I understand why it makes a screeching noise as the car brakes, but what I don't understand is why a car would brake automatically. I mean, you have to push the brake pedal to operate the brakes, cars don't brake automatically. When Stanly is driving the car, there wouldn't be a need for him to accelerate and brake like that, so why does the car keep braking?

pierpp

Chosen answer: It's an old car, so obviously a numbr of things could be wrong with it, like the clutch or the engine. Faults with either of these things would cause a car to brake in this way.

Question: When Smith tries to infect Bane and then Neo, they don't seem to be in a lot of pain when Smith plunges his hand into them. (They look more startled than anything else. Also, we are shown that the rebels' digital selves can suffer pain, remember when Trinity got shot?) Wouldn't it hurt if someone pushed his fingers into them, breaking their breastbone/sternum?

Chosen answer: It's not explained in the film but it looks like Smith doesn't physically punch through the sternum; since it is just a digital world his hand melds with the persons body when he punches, and then proceeds to infect. He can control the matrix in some aspects this way.

Question: The whole story of Achilles being dipped in the River Styx, could it not be a part of the story? Achilles knows he's invincible so why would he wear armor?

Chosen answer: Achilles himself made that comment. I think, for the purposes of this movie, the script was written supposing that all of the characters were merely human, and it was about how fame can create superhuman images of our 'heroes' that people will believe.

Who Shot Mr. Burns? (2) - S7-E1

Question: Chief Wiggum says that Space Invaders was an addictive video game, and Groundskeeper Willie says, "Video game?" I don't understand why he is so shocked. Could someone help please?

Chosen answer: The joke is that Willie was so addicted to Space Invaders that he believed it was reality: every time he played, he was actually defending the Earth from dangerous aliens. It's a surprise to him that it was actually a game.

Phoenix

Question: How did Doc power the Flux Capacitor on his new time-traveling train?

Chosen answer: Steam, the whole thing is steam powered. He has just modified the train itself, probably making it much more efficient.

David Mercier

Question: On the DVD where are the hidden easter eggs, e.g. the gag reel?

Chosen answer: Go to Special Features, and choose the first feature (but don't select it). Then, click left on your remote, and a small picture of a Mini Cooper should appear above the list. Select that, and you'll get to the gag reel.

Question: Does anybody know how they did the scene where Mary Poppins is doing a duet with her mirror image?

leyesalot82789

Chosen answer: They recorded her singing in two separate parts and fixed them together. The editors did a good job on it! It may have been made a long time ago but even then the technology was quite advanced enough to carry out that scene.

Question: Where can you buy an umbrella hat like the one that Jim Carrey wears during the Niagra Falls story? Anyone know of a website or something similar?

Chosen answer: You can buy a hat like that at many novelty stores, such as Spencer Gifts in the US. Just google umbrella hat and you'll find something.

Question: I've always been a little confused by Luke's "failure in the cave." What exactly should Luke have done to actually pass this test? And why did his face appear inside the mask of the image of Darth Vader?

Matty Blast

Chosen answer: Luke failed the test before he even entered the cave - Yoda tells him to leave his weapons behind, but Luke takes them anyway. Seeing his face within Vader's mask is a warning that, if he embraces the path of violence (as he has by taking his weapons into the cave with him) then he could end up falling to the Dark Side as Vader did.

Question: Why does Kaitlin have the horrible scar on her face after Evan saves the dog? She didn't have a scar before, even though she got hit quite hard.

SexyIrishLeprechaun

Chosen answer: The time that Evan goes back and saves the dog, she gets hit in a different way and her cheek is split open - hence the scar. In the "original" timeline, she got hit in the head, not the cheek.

Paul Plesser

Are you making an educated guess? How could you possibly know that she got hit in a different way on her cheek if they don't show that in the movie?

Melanie Lynn Baker

Answer: First of all you need to remember that this sequence started right after Evan makes that big scene by using some sharp object on those two criminal brothers in prison to get his journals back from them. Now later when Evan is able to save the dog, he wakes up in his bed and starts bleeding as a repercussion from storing all those years of memory of this new reality at once, but the flashes that are shown when he wakes up are actually the flashes about how the reality changed after he saved the dog and Kayleigh's brother dies instead. In one of those scene it is shown that the grown up mentally disturbed Kayleigh asks for a lift and those same two criminal brothers are shown in the car she gets inside. So we can assume that the line of business she is shown in later and those scars she has is actually due to her getting along with the wrong people.

rupal

Question: In one of the trailers Harry is looking into a photo. Does anyone know who is in it?

Chosen answer: His parents, James and Lily Potter.

cullothiel

Question: How did the creature get the vanity plates "BEATNGU?" Sure it's creepy, but can you imagine that thing standing in line at the DMV?

Chosen answer: You can purchase vanity plates by mail, or it stole the truck.

Grumpy Scot

Answer: The Creeper possibly has some skill in metalworks. Perhaps it created this custom plate as a mocking or darkly humorous touch to his truck. This is the explanation offered in the Creeper's bio page on Villains Wiki.

Answer: Considering that the entire story is pure supernatural fantasy, anything is possible.
