Question: I have heard many people say this film had over 10 endings in the theater. What is this supposed to mean? For me, 10 endings means that the ending changes each time; like the ending in Clue, where each new one means the others didn't happen in that strain. In ROTK, there are several scenes after the climax of the trilogy happens at Mount Doom. Is the 10 ending note just supposed to mean there is a long epilogue?
Question: I want to know: after the curse has been lifted, we see Barbossa's crew surrendering to Norrington's crew. Some of them collapse. My friend tells me this is because these pirates have been 'killed' or stabbed many times before, and once they are human, they therefore die. My question is: Is this true; and if so, why does this not happen to Jack, who was stabbed with Barbossa's sword when he became cursed?
Question: I'm slightly confused about the naked couple and their role in movie making. Are they the nude scene body double stand-ins for the actual actors, or are they there to prepare lighting and camera angles before the real actors come in and film the scene?
Question: After the black and white ball, TC takes Katherine to his home for sex. While they are frolicking in his home the camera pans to a painting on the wall above them depicting a woman sitting at the bow of a sailboat with her dark hair blown back. Could anyone kindly tell me what the name of the painting is and also that of the artist?
Question: After Donnie has gone back to the start of the loop, he lets himself be hit by the jet engine, presumably to save Gretchen, Frank and everyone else whose life he screwed up in the alternate future. What I don't understand is, since he knows what's going to happen and can see the path (literally) in front of him, why doesn't he try to change it? If he knew what was coming he could save Gretchen without dying himself.Shay
Question: What are the differences (specific scenes/shots) in the Japanese version of the movie that were left out or changed in the American release?
Question: Why is Valantine (grandpa) talking to that butterfly after Arnold "kills" Dimetra? Does he know the butterfly is a direct connection to Sebastian's (toymaker's) surveillance? If this is the explanation, it makes no sense, as he can watch everything. It's so confusing. Could someone please explain it to me?
