Question: How did Michael know that the car part would fall off if Harry used super super glue?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: The glue would keep the car part on but only for a short time because only glue was used. Harry didn't use tools to put on any bolts or anything to keep it in place so eventually it would fall off from the glue drying up.

Question: Why is the ox/dog xenomorph born complete (smaller, but with arms, legs etc) and not as a classic chestburster?

Rian van Gend

Chosen answer: While no official explanation is ever given in the films, Alien canon suggests that the quadrupedal "Runner" Aliens (sometimes called "Dog-Aliens" or "Ox-Aliens" because of their animal hosts) are a weaker xenomorph variant that are physically unable to chest-burst and instead mature inside the host, eventually killing their hosts as they emerge later. This weaker xenomorph variant relies on four-legged speed, sneak attacks and the ability to spit acid at a distance, rather than on brute-force confrontations.

Question: Why don't characters regenerate if they die outside their own game, like Turbo did?

Chosen answer: Because the characters are programmed to regenerate when they die, but outside their game, they are away from their code, or copy of themselves so they can't come back.

MasterOfAll

Question: How did The Green Goblin get captured and sent to Ravencroft after he killed Gwen?

Chosen answer: Peter could have webbed him up and called the police anonymously.

MasterOfAll

Question: How did Spider-Man alert Gwen's family and friends of her death without being accused of killing her?

Chosen answer: Peter could have contacted the police anonymously.

MasterOfAll

Question: When Magneto fired the gun and it gets "stuck" in the guy's head. Did it get stuck because Magneto wanted to hurt him? Or did Charles block it just in time to save the cop?

Chosen answer: Xavier does not have telekinesis. He cannot stop a bullet from moving. Magneto fires the gun and hold the bullet just before it would kill the police officer. The threat is that if someone were to interfere, the bullet would start moving again and kill his hostage.

Question: I remember seeing a version of this movie many years ago and in it, either during or right after the attack on Scar's camp, the Reverend Clayton (Ward Bond) falls from his horse and onto his backside into a pile of cactus. Current versions do not have this scene. A search of the internet finds no mention of this but there is a scene that is consistent with what I remember seeing. W see the Reverend bent over with his pants down and Charlie McCorry (Ken Curtis) tending to what appears to be a wound on the Reverend's butt. Without what I remember seeing, this scene is completely meaningless. Does anyone remember the cactus scene or am I imagining things?

Chosen answer: There was no cactus. A young inexperienced cavalry man, played by Patrick Wayne, constantly holds up his saber, which Ward Bond tells him to put away, before he hurts someone. After the battle, someone asks if he got injured by the Indians. Ward angrily replies "It wasn't the Indians" and looks at Patrick, who has a look of embarrassment.

Question: Why do the tripods make a horn sound?

Chosen answer: It is a signal to the other tripods. They coordinate their attack with the signals. For instance, a specific horn sound is heard when a tripod discovers a group of humans and other tripods come to assist.

Question: Was the violence depicted in this film accurate to what happens in Juarez today?

Question: At the very beginning, it says that a family got stranded in a desert. Is it referring to the Carter family from the first film?

Roman Curiel

Answer: Yes it is.

Question: To clarify, Black Widow and Hawkeye are just plain badasses? Not superheroes with powers, abilities, or enhancements like everyone else on the team?

Chosen answer: Pretty much. Black Widow and Hawkeye do not possess physical super powers of their own, but they are well trained in combat and in the field. They can be likened to the DC hero Batman, who has no actual super powers, either, aside from being a multi-billionaire and relying on his intelligence and reflexes.

Casual Person

Question: Stupid, random question but I'll ask anyway. If there was a grate in the pipe that he escaped from, Andy would'be been screwed at that point huh?

Chosen answer: To put it mildly. Red addresses it in his narration in the novella: "Here's a joke even funnier than the parole would have been: Andy breaks into the sewer line, crawls through five hundred yards of choking, shit-smelling darkness, and comes up against a heavy-gauge mesh screen at the end of it all. Ha, ha, very funny."

Question: Why does the Green Goblin make Aunt May finish the prayer?

Chosen answer: The final part of the prayer is "deliver us from evil, " so by making her say that part he is taunting her because evil is about to abduct her.

Serious B

Question: Mary's attire looks more like 1960s than 1940s. Any info on this?

Susan Emery

Chosen answer: This is not unusual in older films. Earlier costume designers were less attentive to historical accuracy and freely incorporated current fashion trends into period movies. It was just an accepted practice and movie audiences back then were often less discerning and/or unaware of inaccuracies. Today's costumers have greater access to historical information, do more research, and strive for authenticity.

Question: What is the original song playing in the background as Victor enters? Some of the lyrics are "get you out of my head," "you're like a sexual high," "get out of my head".

Answer: This is according to Tunefind: The Cause by the band "27".

Alan Keddie

Question: Harkin didn't even eat the peanut butter. If so, why'd he get an attack?

Chosen answer: People with a severe peanut allergy can be affected without consuming any. Airborne trace amounts can be inhaled and cause a reaction. In some cases, even touching peanuts is dangerous.

Question: The twins are apparently born at the same time as Vader receiving his armor/suit - right after Vader's fight with Obi-wan. How is it that fitting armor happens to be in a medical center already?

Chosen answer: They may have the technology to fabricate the armor and other prosthetics within the facility. There may also be a near-by armory that can quickly supply what was needed.

Question: Did Obi-Wan know Anakin and Padme are married? Since she thinks Obi-Wan could help them with Anakin seeing with the force that Padme would die giving birth after Anakin broke the Jedi code of getting married. Doesn't it seem that Obi-Wan would not help after what Anakin had done, unless he knew about it?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: Obi Wan didn't know they were married. He only realises Anakin is the father of Padme's child after noticing her emotional response when he asks if she knows where Anakin is. Even though Anakin has broken the Jedi code Padme still thinks Obi Wan might help them because he is their best friend. At worst Anakin would be expelled from the Jedi and the controversy would end Padme's political career but she makes it clear she doesn't care about any of that. Anakin, however does and shoots down the idea.

Question: A tape recorded by John directed toward agent Perez states that her partner would soon take the life of an innocent man. How did John know that agent Strahm would kill Jeff? For all he knows, Strahm could have followed Rigg through the factory rather than Jeff. The "if you're good at anticipating the human mind, it leaves nothing to chance" excuse doesn't work here. The only reason Strahm followed Jeff was because he heard Jeff hit a ceiling light with a crowbar.
