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: What is the translation of the Chinese drinking game Roy and Chon play?
Question: Can anyone translate the lyrics of the song that the woman in club Selensio is singing? Or at least the meaning of the lyrics.
Question: In the scene that shows Maude's funeral they show tombstones of previous Simpsons characters that have been killed. I had seen the episodes that had featured the deaths of Bleeding Gums Murphy, Grandpa's girlfriend and Frank Grimes but not Dr. Marvin Monroe. Is there an actual episode where they show the death of Dr. Marvin Monroe? It would be very helpful if you can show all the necessary information (episode name, season, storyline etc.)
Question: What was in the box that the locals brought with them from the general store when they went to the cabin to take care of the infected teens? They referred to it as the kit, and it was carried by the heavy bald guy who got the screwdriver in his ear.
Question: Is the Mirage an actual casino? I know the MGM Grand and the Bellagio are.
Question: In the scene where she is walking home in the rain after visiting her prostitute friend, in the background you can see 3 huge "tank" like structures. They are made twice as high by open girder and cable contraptions. The same things can be seen in the movie, "Spider", starring Ralph Fiennes. What are they?
Question: Can anybody tell me the name of the song that it played right at the opening? It's not on the soundtrack and I can't find it anywhere else. Plus, I'd also be really happy to know the song that is played when Rome and Brian get into the bar, because it's not on the soundtrack either, but still rocks.
Question: I'm looking for the title and performer of one of the songs from "Lost and delirious"; it's played when Paulie is going to visit the bird for the first time, and then the same song is played again when the credits roll. I've tried most of the songs listed in the credits but I haven't found the one I'm looking for. Can anyone help me?
Question: When Frodo and Sam are on the side of Mount Doom and Frodo can't walk anymore, Sam says something like, "I can't carry the ring, but I can carry you," and then picks Frodo up and starts carrying him. But really, why can't Sam just grab the ring and run into the mountain with it? It's only a short distance at that point. I understand about how Frodo was meant to be the ring bearer and all that, but Sam was the ring bearer while Frodo was captured, so why not again?
Question: I'm doing horror movies in my Media Studies course and we're looking at this film in great depth. There were many themes that came up a lot in the film, mainly mirrors, birds and eyes. I've had loads of interpretations of all of these, but does anyone know what they symbolise?
