Question: Does Jamie leave her at the end, after seeing her kissing outside, or will he always be there with her without her knowing it?

Sereenie

Chosen answer: I've always assumed that Jamie does indeed leave, going on to wherever he's going on to. My read of the story is that Jamie has come back to help her move on with her life (whether he knows that himself is unclear). As she has begun to move on, he himself can now go to whatever awaits him.

Question: What exactly does NOC mean? It's never established in the movie.

Chosen answer: "Non-Official Cover". Operative who work for the CIA but are not formally recognized or connected (in case a mission goes bad - he would be on his own). Same thing from The Recruit.

Question: If Shinzon is Picard's clone, wouldn't it have been easier to have Patrick Stewart play both parts? Tom Hardy doesn't even look like Stewart.

Chosen answer: Shinzon was always intended to be much younger than Picard - the whole point is that he's a Romulan project that was ultimately abandoned - he hasn't gone through the accelerated aging process. Patrick Stewart could not have convincingly played a version of his character who was that young. And Tom Hardy does bear a distinct resemblance to a young Patrick Stewart if you look properly.

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.

Kirill Ostapenko

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.

Scrappy

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?

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

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

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.
