Question: What does Semper Fi mean?
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: What is the age different between the teenage actors and their characters?
Question: Who threw the evidence in the fireplace?
Question: While the series finale was inventive for its epilogue (telling us Roseanne's life for some time has been a written work of fiction), there are some things that were never made clear. For example, Roseanne (in voiceover) tells us she switched Becky and Darlene's boyfriend's, then husband's, because she thought it seemed better that way. Which brings me to my questions, does that mean Roseanne's life has been fiction from the point when Dan builds her the room in the basement to write or did it start when Mark, her future son-in-law, showed up in the show? Also, do we have any clue (or has Roseanne said in any interview or other source) what her character has REALLY been doing when she began writing?
Question: In the credits, T. Hawk is listed, I didn't see him anywhere, who is he?
Question: In the scene after Peter has been exploring his powers for the first time and is back home late, why is the note his Aunt and Uncle left him addressed to 'Michelangelo'?
Question: When Jenna has turned 30 and is going to the magazine party she has a dress on then asks her 13 year old neighbour if she can see her underwear to which the girl replies something like "I think that's the point." They then smile and laugh to themselves. Could anyone explain this joke?
Question: This seemed like a couple of mistakes, but I'm not a technology expert: First of all, if the aliens are interfering with Earth's satellites, how are cellphones able to work [so well]? Secondly, how is Dave able to triangulate Connie's position? He sticks some kind of device on his roof, and presumably uses a satellite. Regardless of the satellite problem, I thought triangulation (as the name implies) needed at least three points for determining location.
Question: Rafe's fighter combat experience is in Europe. How does he know the capabilities of a Zero?
Question: Why does Stone shoot at the water after he jumps from the train?
Question: What is the deal with a apples in this movie, is it a subtle reference to something? Aside from the main bad guy chomping on one while tailing with someone (rude), there are several scenes with large bowls of apples. In one scene, there are two tables with bowls of apples on them.
Question: This applies to all three movies and also Zorro and Batman. When Indy uses his whip to swing from one place to another, how does he free the whip from whatever it was attached to? A flick of the wrist wouldn't do it, it seems like he'd have to climb to the end of the whip and separate it from the object by hand.
Question: When Ethan Hawk takes a new life, does he have to shave his fingerprints/get plastic surgery/new teeth etc. because when he started he looked way different than the present day Ethan.
