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: Here's something I've wanted to know. I know that Gotham is a fictional city, as is Metropolis, but both are within the same universe (DC). So how is it that The Statue of Liberty resides in both Metropolis and Gotham? The Statue is in Metropolis Harbor in the Superman movies, but Two-face's chopper crashes into it in Gotham in Batman Forever.
Question: In episode 'The One With The Videotape' we get to know the story 'how Ross and Rachel got bonus night'. What I wonder is does anyone know the whole 'Western Europe' story or is it (unfortunately) one of those stories that doesn't have ending at all, because there's no need of one?
Question: What is all this about "Muscrat" or something like that? Dina keeps saying "Muscrat" when Jack is a bit rude to Greg, but I don't understand the whole point of that.
Question: Early in the film the hotel manager mentions that the Overlook was built on an old Indian burial ground and that builders had to repel several Indian attacks during construction. Indian attacks? During the 20th century? And why mention this detail, since it was never mentioned again or became part of the story.
Question: On Alcatraz, who was the mutant that teleported around like Nightcrawler?
Question: When Ruby is talking to the woman from Child Services, she says "You're writing everything down, now everything will be written down twice". But when was the first time that stuff was written down?
Question: I collected comics for years and read every Mutant title related to the X-men that there was. As I understood Kitty Pryde's power was to phase through objects, her molecules as well as anything she touched/carried would pass through and around the molecules of the object. The molecules of the object weren't displaced or shifted out of time or anything like that. If she therefore left anything/anybody in an object their molecules would now be grafted into the object for lack of a better way of saying it. So a person/Juggernaut left from say stomach down in a floor would be killed by such a massive shock to the system. Have things changed that I've missed or did no-one catch this at all?
Question: When Crane tells Falcone that there is a lady in the D.A's office (Rachel) who is getting suspicious about what he (Crane) is doing with the convicted criminals, Falcone offers to get rid of her, to which Crane tells him that it is not necessary. Why does he turn down Falcone's offer?
Question: I have two questions: 1) At the beginning of the movie, when Buscemi tells the story about the mariachi in this one bar in Saragossa, Tavo (the one Mexican that is later in the movie killed on the street by the mariachi) says something in Spanish, and all start laughing - does anybody know what he says? 2)When the mariachi prepares to go to the Tarasco-Bar, in his bathroom, what song is played?
Question: When Aunt May says to Peter in the hospital, "Everyone else knows", why does Peter suddenly look scared/concerned?
