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: When Shifu uses the Wuxi Finger Hold on Po, he says that the hardest part is cleaning up afterward. What exactly would there be to clean up? In the third Kung Fu Panda movie, when Po uses the Wuxi Finger hold on himself to send him and Kai to the spirit realm, they simply vanish from sight leaving nothing behind.
Question: After Kevin finds out he is in New York why doesn't he say anything to the lady behind the counter? He could have very easily told her where his family was so that they could have been notified, but he doesn't. Why doesn't he say anything?
Question: When Dr. Strange separates Peter's spirit from his body how is Peter still able to make his arm move?
Question: Did the Guccis ever own a Klimt painting, were they not in the Netherlands until 1998? Were they not Nazi plunder?
Question: Mythbusters never tested this so does anyone know if filling a hollow point bullet with cyanide and sealing it with candle wax would actually work? Or would the wax melt/disintegrate and the liquid cyanide disperse in the air while the bullet flies through to the target?
Question: When Sarah and Drover have left the ball, they appear in front of the hotel kissing in the rain and walking up steps. Then she is at the bottom of the hotel steps closing the door of a car while Drover stands on the top step. Why is she closing the car door as Drover stands on the top step?
Question: What were David and his friends doing with the dogs? What was their crime?
Question: When Scott starts slowly turning into Santa, everybody believes he's dressing up as Santa on purpose. Why didn't Scott simply tell people, "I don't think I'm Santa Claus. I'm not pretending to be Santa Claus. I know I'm not Santa Claus. I'm not even trying to look like him." Granted he could never tell anybody how it happened but if he simply said that he isn't pretending to be somebody he's not people might ease up a bit?
Question: When present-day Seth is being tortured, it ends up affecting future Seth (which I get). They carve the address, and it appears. They cut off fingers, and then his fingers disappear. My question is why wouldn't all these scars and missing body parts appear all at once for future Seth? Especially since the injuries aren't appearing in real time for future Seth, they've already healed into scars. It seems like a plot hole unless I missed an in-film explanation or Rian Johnson explained this.
Question: When Buttercup confronts a masked Westley, she says that she loved more deeply than a killer like him ever dreamed. Westley's response is to raise a hand as if to hit her, but he stops and says that was a warning and that where he comes from, there are penalties when a woman lies. In what way was Buttercup lying?
Question: What is the significance of having four tardies in a row? Is there a special penalty of some sort for that?
Question: In the beginning of the film there is a pole thing with a circle on it sticking out of the ground, what is that?
Question: Wouldn't it be against regulation for a house, especially of that size, to be built on a section of the beach that the tide would eventually come up to? A sturdy foundation is absolutely of the question with there being nothing but sand to build it on. When the tide came up to pull Bernie into the water, it definitely would've made contact with the house.
