Question: I seem to remember there was an episode of 'Spaced' where Tim (Pegg's character) plays 'Resident Evil 2' for too long and starts seeing zombies everywhere as a result. Did that influence this film in any way or is it just an interesting coincidence?
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: In the movie, we see several women and children huddled together in a back room away from the fighting, (Almeron's wife and daughter among them). Did Santa Anna's troops kill them as well or were they let go? There was also no mention if Travis' slave (the one who was memorizing something to say in Spanish)was killed as well. While I realize that these characters were minor, one gets the impression that at the end, only Crockett was alive the next morning.
Question: The parent-to-child mini-movie, was that a real film or was it specially made for this one?
Question: In the scene in the car just before the car crash, we see Tyler driving and the Narrator in the front passenger seat. Since we know that they are the same person, we know that the Narrator must be driving, with no-one in the passenger seat. However, during the conversation between the two of them, the crew members in the back seat seem to be reacting to the questions that the Narrator is asking Tyler by repeating "The first rule of...", and the Narrator keeps telling them to shut up, which they do. If the crew members only see the Narrator driving, with nobody in the passenger seat, how is it that they are taking part in a conversation that is not even happening, except for in the Narrator's mind?
Question: At the beginning of the movie, the brother is a loser who works at Burger King. At the end, he wears a suit and work at an office. As a presumably successful business man, wouldn't he have moved out of his parents' house?
Question: Can anyone tell me if Santa Anna really ran away from Houston's forces as it shows in the movie? And was that battle really over in 18 minutes? (Not being an American or a Texan for that matter, I have very little knowledge about what happened at the Alamo, I'm just curious).
Question: Does the line uttered by one the soldiers at the start 'look at the size of that whammer.' come from the comic? It just seems a bit camp.
Question: How do the agents get the police and swat team to work for them? Do they pose as FBI or something like that?
Question: I want to make sure that what I'm thinking and what my little sister said is right: Trixie said she wanted to date a certain boy with a pink hat who isn't afraid to admit he liked "Kissy Kissy Goo Goo" and "Skull Squisher". But at her birthday party, when Timmy says these types of things, Trixie suddenly denies it. Why? (And to repeat, I want to make sure.).
