Question: As none of the evil armies knew that the Rohirrim were coming for a surprise attack on the Pelennor Fields, why did they have the Mumakil, as they wouldn't really be able to attack Minas Tirith apart from damaging a few walls, they would have just got stuck behind the hordes of orcs (who wouldn't have run away towards Osgiliath) So why have them?
Question: At one point at the start, where you only see the gate keeper above his arms, his body slides up the wall, still parallel to the ground. How did this happen if it was just a dinosaur? And when I watched it, it looked as if his body just was sucked into the cage, not dragged, because it happened so suddenly as if a fan had been turned on. I'm not debating it's a raptor, just trying to understand what actually happens there.Coconut
Question: While Robin Williams is packing his things in his small room, he waves down out the window at whom I believe is the Latin teacher, walking along a snowy sidewalk. What is the teacher doing, exactly? It appears that he's giving a guided tour of the campus, but he's also muttering Latin words. It can't be a classroom exercise because there are only 4 or 5 people with him. Does anyone know what he's doing?Matty Blast
Question: When Danny plays Poker with the Teen-beats, he plays his hand as four queens and then says 'I think the Ace is pretty high), the ace is high, but how would that make a difference to the four queens? Also, when Topher Grace (used real name in film) plays his hand as all reds, does 'all reds' mean anything in poker, it's certainly not a flush, as he has hearts and diamonds in there, is that why Rusty looks depressed as Topher Grace collects the money?
Question: After the T-800's infamous invasion of the police station, Reese and Sarah escape and the T-800 is unable to catch them. Reese and Sarah then hide in a tunnel overnight. The next time we see the T-800 is the following day, in his hideout scanning Sarah's address book. What has the T-800 been doing this whole time?Deidra Goins
Question: The guy who played Livingston (surveillance) in Ocean's Eleven gives Jack a sandwich which is the 'Cadillac of all bolognas'. It doesn't really fit with the rest of the film and has no significance, the character isn't even credited so why is it shown?
Question: I really don't get the whole five point exploding heart thing. How does that work? I know it's not supposed to be realistic. But if your heart really explodes after five steps, could you not just stand still? Or get a wheelchair? Can anyone explain what it's supposed to do, its origins (or just Tarantino's reason behind it) and if it is logical in any way?
