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: Are there any plans to release a director's cut?

Answer: At the moment, no. Given the fact the series was rebooted, Sony seems to be putting its focus on the new films. Although given that an alternative cut of 2007's "Spider-Man 3" was recently released, it's possible a director's cut might appear in the future. But at the moment, there are no plans for one.

Question: After Piangi dies after Christine unmasks the Phantom for a second time, what happened to Carlotta?

Answer: Nothing, we can see she's holding his body and mourning his death.

Question: Can vampires and werewolves be killed or injured by anything other than vampires and werewolves?

raph

Answer: Sure. The problem is that these films portray vampires and werewolves as having super-human abilities, so it'd be significantly harder for a regular person to kill one. But nothing about the films seems to indicate it's overtly impossible.

Question: Who is in the photograph on the liquor table in the beginning?

Question: Why is it that the grudge doesn't kill the old woman living in the house?

Answer: It does. They find her dead at one point.

Show generally

Question: Was it ever established in the show whether Hyacinth could drive or not?

Neil Jones

Question: How does Coraline's mom know which key unlocks the door?

Answer: She picked the strangest key for the strangest, or out of place door.

Show generally

Question: What was the reason behind Samantha Mulder's abduction?

Answer: She was taken when the Syndicate was formed and the aliens decided to take a member from each family in each different Syndicate as collateral. Samantha was chosen to be the one that the aliens took because her mother just couldn't choose between her two children.

Question: Why could Malcolm not open the door with the red knob?

Answer: In Malcolm's spirit-mind, which was in denial, it was somehow stuck and simply wouldn't open. But in reality as shown in the final twist, it's because his wife had blocked the door with a heavy desk, which Malcolm was "blocking out" and refusing to allow himself to see.

But he did get into the cellar. The first time he tries to open the door it immediately cuts to him walking down the stairs. How did he get in if it was blocked?

Question: Where were Toomes and the gang after they were fired?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: At a large building, which is presumably a storage/office space Toomes owns or rents for the purposes of his salvaging/disposal job, since he'd need significant space for equipment and whatnot. It later became his villainous lair.

Question: Why was Tom bringing the football team to his house?

Answer: Because he needed a way to coach the team while also watching his kids.

Question: Wouldn't the end of the fight be an obvious draw as soon as the second judge's score was read in favor of Antonio? Michael Buffer didn't announce a split decision before reading the scorecard so as soon as the second score was read in favor of Antonio then a draw was imminent.

Question: When Elliott, Mike and Mike's friends are escaping from the agents on their bikes, are the actors' stunt doubles adults or teenagers? Asking because I've heard of teenagers being stunt performers in movies.

Answer: The BMX stunt riders were aged between 15 and 20, so older than the kids in the film who were about 10.

Question: When Robin Hood goes to Skippy's house as a blind beggar, does he say, "Did I hear someone say a birthday today?" or "Did I hear someone sing a birthday ditty?"

Answer: He said "Did me old ears hear someone singin' a birthday ditty?"

Bishop73

I thought it was "today", not "ditty."

Question: Why had the replicants tried to break into Tyrell Corporation? How come Roy Batty knew the corporation existed at all?

Answer: Replicants appear to know about their origin and lifespan, and even if they didn't, Roy is highly intelligent and motivated, and could easily have determined Tyrell's role in his creation through various means. The reason they broke into Tyrell Corp was they wanted the company or Tyrell himself to extend their lifespans, or to work out the means to do it themselves.

Question: Is there a complete version of the song Barbara Allen from this movie? I think this version is the best I've ever heard.

Answer: Beyond the instrumental piece on the soundtrack, no.

Question: How did Harry and Marv know that Kevin would escape through the back door of the Plaza Hotel while waiting for him?

adamtrainman@aol.com

Answer: It's most likely a plot hole, but one possible explanation I can think of is that perhaps Harry and Marv observed from afar the scuffle between Kevin and the concierge and deduced that he would try to flee the hotel from a door that wasn't necessarily being watched by the hotel staff.

Question: Re the song "My Name Is Tallulah", what is the significance of North Carolina as a training location?

Answer: It was just a way of saying where she was raised and how she got to be so good. Even though Prohibition became a federal law in 1920, North Carolina enacted their own prohibition in 1908. During these 12 years, some in North Carolina started bootlegging by driving to Virginia or South Carolina to buy alcohol to bring back to the state. I see it has her training as a gun moll or bootlegger.

Question: What happened to the two French-speaking girls on the beach in the ending of the first movie?

Answer: While we know that the two girls are French-speaking, we don't actually know that the game landed in France. The two girls might have been on holiday, which would mean that the scene could potentially take place anywhere in the world. Given the ability of the game to distort space and time, it is highly likely they had their own game and similarly tried to throw it away.

Answer: Presumably they had their own adventure with the game then got rid of it or nothing happened.

Answer: This was my biggest gripe with the film - turns up on a French beach at the end of the first film and then one year later turns back up in Brantford? It's like they just wanted to make money so badly.
