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: Why exactly must Arwen become 'mortal' when she chooses to be with Aragorn? It's not because she didn't leave with the other elves, because Legolas didn't leave until after Aragorn died. Does it have anything to do with the necklace she gives him, as in the necklace was a source of her 'immortality', or was that just a symbol of her love?
Question: In the scene where Jack and Elizabeth are marooned on the island, Jack is walking to a higher part of the island. He then imitates Elizabeth by saying something like "'It must have been terrible for you, Jack. Must have been terrible.' Well, it bloody is now." He then sees Norrington's ship approach the island and says, "There'll be no living with her after this." What does he mean when he says that?
Question: When the film makers deviate from the book there is often an acknowledgement in some minor detail in the film, for example, Sam's line in Osgiliath, "By rights we shouldn't even be here", is acknowledging that they never go to Osgiliath in the book. Is there anything like that, in any of the trilogy, to acknowledge that the makers / writers left out Tom Bombadil?
Question: During the infamous lust scene, several times you see people's hands inside a bird cage. What is the significance of this?
Question: Why was Arwen dying? I know that Elrond said that the Evenstar was being overcome with the darkness, but why wouldn't other Elves, that were linked to Sauron or were closer to Mordor, be affected?
Question: Can someone please tell me how old Ferris and Jeanie are? It seems that Ferris is a senior and that would make him about 17 or 18, but then why would Jeanie have a car if she was younger, especially since Ferris says that he asked for a car and didn't get it? If she was older, what would she still be doing in school?
Question: In the scene with Donald Duck and Daffy Duck on the piano, it seems as if Donald calls Daffy a racial slur. I was just wondering if anybody knows what he says and if it's true?
Question: At the beginning of the movie when the killer is about to kill Cotton, he changes his voice and talks about how it was a simple game. Does anyone know who the voice belongs to?
Question: When Obi-Wan is being given a tour of the cloning facility, the creature says to him, "They're completely obedient" (or something akin). Right when she says that, we see a closeup of one clone holding a knife and fork. This clone, instead of eating politely like all the others, looks left and right and has a mean look on his face. Is there any significance to this shot? Why would they show a closeup of one clone appearing to contradict what the female is saying about the clones?
