Question: In the animated series Ra's Al Ghul's name is pronounced "Raishe" rhyming with race. In this movie it's pronounced "Raaz". Why the change?
Question: I have read all the trivia for this movie and everyone is talking about "that's from the Disney ride" can someone please explain this to me? I don't understand at all.
Question: Just out of curiosity, they didn't mention what happen to that Alan guy who gave his position to Pete. Did he go on to play college ball?
Question: I am just curious as to how they make the lightsaber clashing sound. It's the sound made when General Grevious turns on his lightsabers, in Ep. II right before Obi Wan is cut by Dooku's lightsaber, and in Ep. IV whenever Darth Vader and Obi Wan clash their lightsabers and hold it together. It's a shhhhh, clickity, clickity, clack, clack. I just was wondering.
Question: In the beginning, Cameron is on the phone with Rooney, pretending to be Mr. Peterson, in the Bueller's kitchen. Ferris then calls the office for homework assignments, and he is on the round, red phone from his room. This movie was made in 1986- were phones with dual lines on them available in 1986?
Question: Sort of a technical question, but what type of camera was used to make this movie, film or digital? Also, there seemed to be a lot of shots made with a hand-held camera, was there any reason for this other than the "cool" factor of the camera moving through the shot? (The hand-held shots are generally the shots that are more "shaky" and such).
Question: Why didn't Sam die after being stabbed/drowned/chopped in half? I have no idea.
Question: In the audio commentary with the director and 'the real Lemony Snicket' on the DVD, who is voicing Lemony Snicket? Is it the actual writer or a stand-in, which is also plausible, seeing as how the whole commentary is like a long joke.
