Question: When Scarface shoots Frank, Mel says "you can't shoot a cop" and Tony says "who said you was a cop?" This is stated as though Tony wasn't supposed to know Mel was a cop, but did anyway. Though Tony already knew this as mentioned to Mel earlier; "How do I know you're the last cop I'm gonna have to grease?" Why would this dialog take place if Scarface already knew prior?
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: I have heard a rumour that there is a deleted scene where Riggs kills the two guys who dropped him off the pier in a straight-jacket. Apparently it was too violent to keep in. If this is true then where could I see the deleted scene?
Question: Knowing that every other major character from the original trilogy (IV, V, and VI) who was old enough (even Jabba) had a cameo of some sort in the new trilogy, is there anywhere in the movie that Han Solo appears? I know he's several years older than Luke (he always calls Luke 'kid'), and Luke was just being born in the end of episode III, so Han was definitely alive then.
Question: What was the exact significance of the "bread crumbs?" It still confuses me.
Question: Who are the motorbike riders who put the flyers up announcing the Golden Tickets? They're too tall to be Oompa-Loompas.
Question: I saw the theatrical release of The Court Jester in 1980. I remember a character being tortured to reveal information, but he refuses and dies. This scene was not in the VHS or DVD versions. No one else seems to remember it. Can anyone confirm it? I believe (but can't be certain) that the unfortunate character tortured was Fergus the Ostler.
Question: Malcolm asks Roland why he'd kill a T-Rex. Roland proceeds to tell a story about a guy that went up a mountain and came back barely alive, and when asked 'did he go up there to die', responded 'no, he went up there to live'. I sort of get the point of the story, but could somebody clarify it for me?
Question: Is it me, or is there a different cut between the theatrical and DVD versions regarding the birth scene? I remember more shots of the baby children. Specifically, one of Leia, who has her eyes wide open. This shot is mentioned in the Making-Of book. The shot is important series-wise, because this is how Leia is able to remember her mother (as mentioned in RotJ). However, it is absent from the DVD.
Question: What happened to Jack the dog? Last she was seen was when Jack showed up at Kate's boyfriend's work. The boyfriend said "I know you." and looked back at Alex walking away. I assume that's how Kate got the dog. But Jack isn't really seen in Kate's time much, after the chess game.
Question: When I watched both films in succession, I noticed the same person played both the man on desk at the morgue and Newton, the video store owner in the second film. Is there a reason for him being in both films?
Question: What's the name of the song that is played very often, at the beginning and throughout the movie, it's very slow and calm?
Question: Why does Director Gordon (the headmistress) say that the damage Tyler did was the cost of a child's tuition, he has cost someone their future? It seems that, if anything, the school would accept that student and use their tuition to pay for the damages, thus helping the child's future.
Question: What kind of animal is that thing that wants to eat the chickens? He is supposedly on the 'good' side (not a coyote).
Question: Does the sniper on the roof that Nemesis blows up with the rocket launcher have a name?
Question: Why was the American Special Edition recalled?
Question: What is the meaning behind the Morton salt and other groceries that Mort buys at the end of the movie?
