New this week Question: Jumping to the future to preserve the sphere data was meant to be so that Control couldn't get hold of it. But Control is neutralised before the jump, drones all dead in the water, it's utterly destroyed. So what's the threat? Why jump at all?Jon Sandys
New this week Question: When Chet and Verna are arguing about Chet getting a job, visible in the background is a painting of what I believe is an oak tree on a yellow background. Does anybody know the name and/or artist of this painting? My Grandparents used have a painting similar to it (if not the same one) and it also looks very similar to (and possibly the inspiration for) the cover art for the debut album of the band Days of the New.Phaneron
New this week Question: Where did Big Boy go off to? When the "food court" drops out of the sky, the Chupacobre gather, the Velociraptors join in the feast, then a male and female Rex appear. The latter dinos then catch wind of Marshall's urine drenched body and begin to chase the trio. When the party splits up, Big Boy chases Marshall and rips off his back pack. At one point both dinos are on a course to corner him on a hill. He then runs to the clothing display and back out, narrowly escaping death via the female Rex, but only after Holly has a near heart attack fearing Marshall has been killed. He runs away into the stretch limo and at that time we see the two dinos trampling the vehicle while Marshall miraculously escapes over 200 yards away in 3 seconds or less. Marshall runs down hill toward Will and Holly and instructs them to set the catapult as Will yells, "Take her that way." We never see the male Rex again until much later in the movie. When we do see him know it's the same Rex because he has the laser pointer in his teeth from Marshall's back pack. Where did Big Boy disappear to when he was supposedly on the hunt for Marshall by scent, and suddenly vanished? Was it a tachyon blast that took him to another dimension?
New this week Question: It's been a while since I've seen this movie, but I remember a scene in which the FBI gives a press conference urging users not to log on to the website, as they then become accessories to the murders. If that's the case, why not say that anyone who accesses the site to watch someone be killed will be charged as an accessory to murder since they can presumably identify the IP addresses of those who watch? It definitely would be a lot of people that would be charged and would cause its own separate and long investigation, but it could have deterred a lot of people from watching.Phaneron
New this month Question: Why did Anna get so mad over Ryan killing Carly? If it were not for him, all of them would have died. All of them were almost dying when Ryan injected Carly. But after they were all release from the chains, Anna got so angry with Ryan and attacked him and said to him "Fucking asshole." It turns out that she killed her baby just because her baby didn't stop crying in the past. So she is not the type of the person who cares about people's lives very much.Bunch Son
New this month Question: Two questions. 1) Why does the Sultan pick on Iago all the time - force feeding him stale crackers and when he's on the magic carpet, chasing after him? 2) Why is the Sultan so rough with the magic carpet? When he goes for a ride on it after Aladdin shows up at the palace as Prince Ali, he rides it around the palace in such a reckless manner that when he's finished, the carpet can barely walk.
