Question: At some points in the movie there are red dots near the middle of the screen; I know that they are supposed to help with the respect of copyrights, but how are they supposed to help?

Chosen answer: If a copy is made then when it is reported they can match the red dots to the specific movie screen because each theatre gets a different version of the red dots.

Question: At one point, Kimble steals an ambulance. We then cut to the U.S Marshals, who say "An ambulance has been spotted...". They then run off to intercept it. But surely there's more than one ambulance in that area, and surely more than one person has seen an ambulance in that time?

Chosen answer: True, but if they cannot contact this one or it is seen driving eratically or out of it's designated area, that is sufficent to cause suspicion.

The One Where Monica Sings - S9-E13

Question: Whatever happened to Gavin? He seemed to disappear after he and Rachel kissed.

Chosen answer: Gavin was transferred back to his original post in Ralph Lauren, after Rachel told him she felt guilty if anything happened between them.

Question: What is the mirror? What does it do? And why does it take over anybody who touches it?

Chosen answer: What happens with the mirror does not appear to be typical of a 'disconnection', judging from the look exchanged between Trinity and Morpheus as the mirror 'heals'. What we see occuring may be the result of disconnection trauma triggering Neo's fledgling abilities, rather than some specific part of the disconnection process.

Question: What is the significance of the flintlock pistol the Elder Predator gives Danny Glover?

Answer: As a reward for besting the Predator in combat, he proved himself a fierce warrior worthy of praise and the gun was a token of their respect for his strength.

Chosen answer: It's a reference to the comic where a pirate and a predator became somewhat friendly. The gun was given to the elder predator by the pirate as a thank you gesture. The elder predator then some few hundred years later gave it to Glover as a congratulations.

The comic came out years later to give a back story to the pistol. The only significance of the pistol is to show how long the predators have been coming to Earth.

Question: Why is Anya scared of bunnies? Or do we never find out?

Chosen answer: It goes back to when she was human, just before becoming a vengeance demon. She used to love bunnies, but I guess afterwards she always associated them with her boyfriend cheating on her, and her turning into a demon. This is shown in the season 7 episode 'Selfless'.

Question: What song plays while Montel is driving away after killing his "uncle"?

Question: Is John Rhys-Davies really that small? If not, how did they make him look like a dwarf?

Chosen answer: No he is not small. As a matter of fact he is the tallest actor of the Fellowship. He had a scale double, Brett, who did much of the work involved in all three films. In many shots, where it was really John portraying Gimli, it was simply a 'trick' of the camera, through depth perception, allowing the viewers to think he was that small. This 'trick' of the camera was used for the Hobbits as well, who all had scale doubles too. Peter Jackson also had small sets built that were duplicates of the large sets in order to achieve the effect properly.

Question: In this movie Ashton goes back in his life to change the past. In his final "time travel" he goes all the way back to when he was a kid to tell Kaylee to stay away from him. This means that she would never make contact with him, the events with her and her brother would never take place, and since his lifeline is changed, he wouldn't have blackouts and he would have no need to write in his journals. But at the end of the movie it shows him throwing away all his stuff, including his journals, and setting it ablaze. If he changes his life, how could his journals have been written when there is no need for them? I'm a little confused about the whole journal thing so if someone could help me out, that'd be great.

Chosen answer: Evan had journals to record his whole life, not just the blackouts. He would still have them regardless of the blackouts.

Valhalley of the Dolls (1) - S6-E1

Question: In Australia, what was the song that was played during the Charmed ad? I think it is still playing for Valley of the Dolls, part 2. The add is the one where they change from comics to the actual actresses.

Chosen answer: I don't know about Oz, but in Britain on Living tv (the cable channel) the song used was "Are you gonna be my girl" by Jet.

Question: Is this movie going to have Doc Ock and Sandman, or Doc Ock and Lizard, or just one of them? I've seen two versions of the script. One with Sandman and one with Ock.

Chosen answer: According to the latest casting news, the only villan in the film is Dr. Octopus, played by Alfred Molina.

Question: Who wrote the music heard during the Neo vs Smith fight scene?

Chosen answer: Juno Reactor Vs. Don Davis wrote this and many of the fighting scene scores for the Matrix.

Question: What happened to the original poster with Roxy and Velma holding guns behind their backs? In all the more recent ones the guns are gone. Why?

Chosen answer: I have both the DVD and the soundtrack. On the DVD cover they have the guns, however on the soundtrack cover, their arms look like they have been cut out of the picture along with the guns. Possibly somebody thought that it was a bad influence, since many young people enjoy the movie as well.

Question: Does any one know what religion Jess and her family are?

Chosen answer: They are orthodox Sikhs.

Question: If Danny was meant to trigger the vault alone, was he meant to do all the stuff that Linus consequently did, like impersonate NGC personnel and swipe Benedict's access card? If so, how stupid was he introducing himself to Benedict when he knew he had to impersonate someone else and do all the stuff that Linus did in order to gain access to the vault with Yen? If the above is false than what was the point of Linus being in the operation and how else were they going to obtain the security codes for the elevator?

Chosen answer: The plan right from the beginning was to get Linus to do that part of the job - they just didn't tell Linus that so that he wouldn't have time to fret about it. Danny introduced himself to Benedict as part of the side-plot to get Tess away from him - he needed to be known to Benedict so that after the robbery he could ask the question that finally causes Tess to leave Benedict. The whole aim was to get Benedict to imprison him so that he couldn't subsequently be linked to the theft.
