Questions about specific movies, TV shows and more
These are questions relating to specific titles. General questions for movies and TV shows are here. Members get e-mailed when any of their questions are answered.
Question: If nobody was home when Claire got unconcsious then who called the ambulance when Peyton was outside with Joey?
Question: When does the song "I Learned From You," play in the movie?
Question: How exactly was Will resurrected? Did that take place when the ship was able to rise back to the surface? And was the Flying Dutchman still a cursed ship at the end even though Will was resurrected and Bootstrap was back to normal human form. It seemed like it to me because one second Will is on the beach with Elizabeth and the next the ship is already on the horizon.
Question: The title of the film 'At worlds end' implies to me that they considered the world to be flat, but in Beckett's ship there is a globe. Am I reading the title incorrectly or is this a mistake? Also, in the scene in which Sparrow goes to retrieve his 'effects' and a cannonball blasts through the brig, how is this possible, because the ship in the maelstrom was at such an angle that it would have been impossible for the Pearl to fire one through there.
Question: At the meeting of the pirate brethren, Jack and Barbossa both were counted as a Pirate Lord. But wasn't Barbossa really Jack's first mate that mutinied against him prior to the events of the first film?
Question: Could someone please explain the goat in Xerxes' 'sex room' (for lack of a better word). The scene before Xerxes offers the hunchback Ephialtes everything, this scene begins with a shot of a goat with human hands playing an instrument and (I believe) smoking something. Does Xerxes have a goat fetish or something? Could someone kindly explain this for me.
Question: Why would Gabriella even audition for a musical if she knew from the start that she is afraid to sing with people staring at her? Doesn't she realize if she gets the part an entire audience will be watching?
Question: Something I didn't quite understand about the locations of the places in Middle Earth. In FOTR when the group is trapped on the mountain Boromir suggests that they turn around and take the road to Gondor but Aragorn says it will take them too close to Isengard. In this film however we only see that Mordor is (also?)close to Gondor (Minas Tirith). I don't remember that Isengard was close to Mordor. If all this is true could that mean that Saruman knew that the group was either going to take the road to Gondor OR go through the Mines of Moria, knowing that he could catch them if they went through Gondor?
Question: Why did Beckett not fire back on The Black Pearl and The Flying Dutchman when they joined forces against him? Is it meant to be 'artistic licence'?
