Question: I have a few questions about the different groups in the film. 1. I looked up 17th Feb, or February 17th Martyr's Brigade, on Wikipedia, and I noticed that an ally that was listed on Wiki was Ansar-Al-Sharia. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Ansar-Al-Sharia the current ISIS/ISIL that we're fighting today? 2. Was the group the soldiers were fighting in the film ISIS? 3. Who was the group of soldiers that saved them all at the end of the film?
Question: Is there a scene where a young boy watching the filming is seen? I heard this years ago and the clip was shown.
Question: Why was Doug so upset that Pam slept with J.C? I get that he loved her and everything, but they hadn't seen each other in years, they were not even dating at that time. And considering he didn't have much time for Pam before they went out, he was more interested in Eleanor.
Question: Since Eggs could talk normally, and wore regular human clothing, should he have realised that he wasn't a Boxtroll the entire time?
Question: Vullaby's Pokedex entry in Alpha Sapphire says that she guards her posterior with bones that were gathered by Mandibuzz, but why is it that whenever she hatches from an egg, she's shown already wearing it?
Question: In the very last scene, we see Michael Shannon in shackles (presumably in a federal prison) with electroencephalographic sensors attached to his forehead and scalp, oddly gazing at the sunrise as two prison guards flank him. In the very last shot of the film, a closeup of his face, we see his eyes faintly glow for a split-second as he smiles a very slight smile. Question: Is the film implying that Alton is in otherworldly contact with his father, or that his father absorbed some of Alton's otherworldly power; or is it implying that, being the boy's biological father, he was the source of Alton's power? In any event, this may never be revealed, because the film barely made back one-third of its $18 million production budget, making the probability of a sequel highly unlikely.Charles Austin Miller
