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: It was mentioned several times throughout the movie that Lacuna Inc gets really busy on Valentines, and also at Joel's place when the tech guy tells Patrick to stop fooling around as they have to get moving to other jobs... So what happened to all the other clients since the remainder of the night was spent at Joel's place?
Question: What is the song that is played at the end of the film. (When the credits come up.) (Starts something like: "A man down under . . . ")
Question: How exactly do you cut the hard line? In the scene at the hotel where the walls turn to brick, a shot is shown of someone literally cutting a cable with a big pair of pliers, but how would that affect the Matrix?
Question: Why do the survivors wear nothing but short-sleeved T-shirts and other flimsy clothes that can be easily bitten through? If you were fighting zombies who were trying to bite you, wouldn't you try to cover up your arms and face, even a leather jacket and a pair of thick gloves would help?
Question: The scene in the movie with everything about Saruman is not true to the book, and even though there will be more scenes in the extended version, all this is not correct. Saruman's palantir and staff are actually taken by Gandalf, and Saruman is let out by Treebeard. Saruman later dies in the Shire, after the fellowship sees him on their way back home. Why is all this info being changed, couldn't they have put all this in the extended version? If all this was not filmed for the movie, why wasn't it?
Question: Can someone please explain to me the whole intern class of 2003 thing, and the fact that it said Elle's law school class was the class of 2004?
Question: Just to clear something up. Dietrich and Sasha are meant to be brother and sister, so what does the kiss mean? (In Dietrich's loft apartment, during the shootout, just after Dietrich is shot in the neck). Are they actually brother and sister, or is it a sham? Or does the "You look like you just f***ed your mother" joke to Castor Troy have hidden meaning (i.e incest?) Or is it just a last goodbye between siblings?
Question: I understand that certain changes need to be made when adapting a book to the screen, but can anyone tell me the reason why they so radically changed an ending which would have worked fine as it was in the book?
Question: The war between humans and machines started because machines needed a source of power and created the Matrix to hold humans in bondage while they were used as batteries. Now that humans are free to leave the Matrix, won't the machines start losing their source of power, causing them to force humans back into bondage, restarting the war?
