Avengers: Endgame (2019)

Question: What happened to Loki? Does this mean he's now alive?

MikeH

Answer: The Loki from the original timeline is dead, but the 2013 Loki that is imprisoned on Asgard is presumably alive and well, and the 2012 Loki that escaped with the Tesseract is alive and supposedly, this version of the character will be the focus of his own upcoming Disney+ series.

Answer: The Loki who escaped is in a different timeline, so he will not encounter the "main" versions of the characters. This version of Loki will appear in the new series.

Question: How did Frank know Carl wouldn't open his wallet?

MikeH

Answer: He didn't. He took a desperate gamble that he could distract and then emotionally disarm Carl's normal defenses.

Goodfellas (1990)

Question: Would Karen have died if she went into the store?

MikeH

Answer: The film leaves it ambiguous...it can be interpreted either way. She may have simply been being paranoid, but the circumstances, and Jimmy's behavior, were very suspicious.

Question: Is it possible to dig yourself out of a coffin?

MikeH

Answer: Technically, yes. However, you'd have to be in a (rather flimsy) wooden coffin, which is unlikely, unless you live in the past; you'd have to punch your way out before running out of oxygen, which is also unlikely (even with years of martial arts training that specifically included how to punch a hole in wood at very close range); and you'd have to escape before the roughly 65 cubic feet of dirt on top of you poured into the coffin and suffocated you anyway. Finally, Beatrix definitely gets some help through editing, which you won't have.

Answer: Several reasons, the Vulture isn't really a super villain, but a man trying to provide for his family after being cheated by the government. He also can make Peter Parker squirm with fear knowing that he's Spider-Man. What will he do with that knowledge.

Pretty Baby (1978)

Question: How is the underage nudity legal? I mean how was it legal to show underage nudity in the movie? How is it not child pornography?

MikeH

Answer: As long as there are no touching or actual physical contact with a child, even simulated sexual act, it is legal.

Titanic (1997)

Answer: The necklace is called "The heart of the Ocean." While in the middle of the ocean, Rose had her heart captured by Jack Dawson. Rose returned the diamond to the ocean in the exact place where her heart was taken by Jack. As she says at one point, "A woman's heart is a deep ocean of secrets"

Answer: She basically gave it back to the ship. It was a symbolic gesture towards Jack as basically he died because of it.

Panic Room (2002)

Answer: They wouldn't in real life. This was a plot contrivance.

Answer: There could be a serious major event happening nearby where all the resources needed to be sent ASAP. The 911 operator had to prioritize and assumed the current caller's emergency - whatever it was - was less urgent. There could have been a shortage of operators for whatever reason.

Goodfellas (1990)

Answer: Because he didn't want his operatives turning into junkies, getting compromised, and putting him in legal trouble...which is exactly what happens with Henry.

Answer: Start to end Malcolm: 11 - 17 Francis: 16 - 23 Reese: 13 - 19 Dewey: 7 - 13.

Thor (2011)

Answer: We aren't told for certain, but Loki mentions in Thor: The Dark World that there are secret ways out of Asgard. He may have known that the well he plunged himself into was a wormhole.

Spider-Man 3 (2007)

Question: How did Bernard even know Peter didn't stab Norman?

MikeH

Answer: Because he knew Peter was a good person, maybe knew he was Spider Man since he knew Norman was the Green Goblin.

Spider-Man 3 (2007)

Question: Why wouldn't Bernard have told Harry about Norman's death instantly?

MikeH

Answer: He probably thought Harry wouldn't believe him and he was already upset over his death, so telling the truth would reveal Norman as having been the Green Goblin.

Rob245

Question: Other than bail, how did Clyde even attempt to expose any flaws in the justice system? It seems like all he did was kill people.

MikeH

Answer: He wanted to teach Nick a lesson. His entire revenge revolves around the whole justice system for doing deals with criminals.

Holes (2003)

Stupidity: Why would Stanley say the shoes fell out of the sky? It happened under a bridge. Any normal person would instantly realise someone threw them off the bridge.

Meet the Parents (2000)

Question: Why would Jack instantly believe the weed wasn't Denny's? Isn't he supposed to be a human lie detector?

MikeH

Answer: Confirmation bias - he believes what he wants to believe is true, since he wouldn't want to believe his own son is a drug user, and wants to believe Greg is.

Answer: There are certain physical tells for when someone may be lying as well. This is what Jack is doing at the end of the movie when he's interrogating Greg at the airport: checking his pulse, monitoring his breathing, and looking at his eyes.

Cool Hand Luke (1967)

Continuity mistake: When Luke is shot, in the impact shot blood splatters onto the window, and in the very next shot, there's instantly much more blood on the window.
