Question: Jack's past was left very vague and inconsistent, in the film. Like who was the "last" pirate Captain who died and gave the compass to Jack, and why did he give it to Jack, he wasn't anybody special at the time? Salazar said he killed all the pirates, and Jack's ship was the last, how would that leave the world to be as it is, in the future, with all the pirate lords, and amounts of pirates still existing?
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 did the bank people open the safe in the beginning of the movie? I get that they were trying to demonstrate the safety of the vault, but how does opening it do that? Feels like something written just to help the story move on.
Question: Tommy mentions something about ace degenerate - what was he talking about?
Question: How did Cal manage to get into a lifeboat with the child that wasn't his? All the crew seem to know who he is so shouldn't have been fooled into thinking the child was his?
Question: John Kramer says to Cecil who is tied to a chair, "Some people stop to help a stranded motorist and get taken out by a speeding semi. There's no accounting for it." Who is he referring to by the stranded motorist? And who was killed by a semi while helping the motorist? It's been a while since I watched the movies. I don't remember it.
Question: I recently submitted a "mistake" which revealed my own misunderstanding. The package that Chuck eventually delivers to Bettina had been sent to her partner in Moscow, which COULD explain its presence on a westbound trans-Pacific flight. Still, would a package sent from Memphis to Moscow be routed through southeast Asia? It would be shorter, and therefore faster, would it not, to send it across the Atlantic?
Question: While Hicks and Vasquez are sealing the door during the attack, you get a good look at the magazine on Hudson's rifle while he is using the motion tracker. On the bottom of the magazine a large letter "D" is visible. Does anyone have any idea why that letter is there? Is this a prop designation?
Question: What does the bartender say to Arnold after he gets off the bike, right before Arnold grabs the shotgun?
Question: Why did Lady Lisa look like an ordinary person instead of a Pixel?
