Justice League (2017)

New this week Question: The last shot in "Batman v Superman" showed the soil on top of Superman's casket beginning to levitate, inferring that Superman was still alive and on the verge of bursting out of his grave. Why then, in this movie, do the other heroes have to exhume his body and use the Motherbox to bring him back to life if the former movie made it clear he wasn't actually dead?

Serious B

New this week Answer: It's sort-of a crappy answer, but the truth is... like many sequels, this movie simply ret-cons and "forgets" the last few seconds of the previous film. This happens more often than you'd think. The filmmakers decided that rather than go with the notion that Superman might still be alive as implied by the ending of BvS, they'd instead add in a sequence where he's brought back to life in this one. I'm sure if you really stretched, you could also say that the dirt rising was a hint that he might be able to be brought back or wasn't beyond being saved, and that some of his power still existed somewhere.

New this month Other mistake: When Johnny first goes into the flower shop to buy roses for Lisa, the clerk says she didn't know it was him. As he is leaving, she says he is her favorite customer. If he's her favorite customer, then there's no way she couldn't have known it was him, especially given how unusual he looks and sounds.

When You Dish Upon a Star - S10-E5

Trivia: Another thing "The Simpsons" predicted: Towards the end of this episode, a sign outside of a film studio shows the 20th Century Fox logo with "A Division of Walt Disney Co" written under it. Nineteen years after this episode aired, Disney purchased many assets from 20th/21st Century Fox, including "The Simpsons."

Other mistake: At the end of the episode, Billy's parents tell him that they are taking him to a dangerous place called Earth and then direct his attention towards the sky where Earth is visible in high detail in broad daylight of the atmosphere of whatever planet they are on. If Earth is visible in such great detail, and at daytime no less, then there is no way Billy could not have already been familiar with it.

It (2017)

Question: Why does Pennywise kill Georgie and Patrick almost immediately, but then spend time tormenting the other kids instead of outright killing them?

Serious B

Chosen answer: In order to install the fear of death in someone, to put them in your grasp, you must kill those closest to you. In doing so the fear is always inside them. Pennywise will always be in their thoughts and dreams. Which will constantly torture the kids, which what he wants.

Trivia: Sean Bean, who is famous for his many on-screen deaths, has said that the death of Boromir in this film is his favorite.

Factual error: This film portrays the ACLU as being an aggressively anti-Christian agency. This couldn't be further from reality. In the real world, the ACLU would more than likely defend Grace in court for mentioning Jesus in class, as opposed to being the ones representing the prosecution.
