Question: What was the whole point of killing and cloning the charter pilots in the first place? My first thought was that Decker wanted employees that were totally obedient and demanded no pay (after all, the clones would only have five years to live, and would then have to be cloned again), but considering that each cloning cost $1,3 million, it would be a lot cheaper and less risky to hire the pilots regularly. So why kill them?Twotall
Question: If Cristoff wanted to get rid of Lauren/Sylvia, then why does he continue to show flashback scenes of her?
Question: How come in the first movie they don't want us to know Beatrix's name so they bleep it out, but in this movie they let us know it? Why couldn't they tell us in the first movie?
Question: Does anyone know if they are releasing a DVD of this film? It's been 6 months or so since the film was originally released, and usually, the film is on video 2 months or so after.
Question: Several times throughout the movie, we see Lex refer to a digital compass on her wrist. I know that a normal compass, the kind with a suspended needle, will bottom out that close to the south pole, and even if you get it to work, it's useless because it says every direction is north. How does hers work?
Question: Han wants to leave the Rebel base on Hoth so he can pay Jabba and not have to worry anymore about all the bounty hunters that are after him. Seems like a reasonable thing to want to do. But why does everyone act like he's quitting the rebellion all together? What's to keep him from coming back after he gives Jabba the money? Even if they have to leave Hoth before he could make it back they could have told him where he could find them.
Question: While Truman is performing the closing act in the film, we see him being watched all over the world by various people. Two security guys in a car park are watching when a guy taps on the window. The guard says something like "Just leave it in the car." What's he referring to?
Question: Why does Melvin, who looks about 15, live out there alone, in a shack, with no adult supervision?
