New today Question: Why did everyone at the park have to leave? It doesn't make much sense that no one would be there to tale care of everything (i.e. dinosaurs, security etc). I can understand having to leave when things became chaotic, but they were leaving before that even happened; John couldn't handle all this on his own.

New today Answer: It didn't make any sense that everyone would be evacuated off the island and leave the animals and the systems unattended because of a storm. A facility such as that would have to be built to withstand hurricanes, which in that part of the world, would happen every year. Non-essential staff might leave, but not the caretakers.

New today Question: In the Rogue Cut, when Rogue arrives where Kitty and the rest are why does Rogue just stare at her for a bit?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

New today Question: During the botched raid on the university campus, the troops move in too quickly (alerting Bruce Banner) and General Ross snarls, "I wanna know who jumped the gun!" Did General Ross ever find out who jumped the gun? Was it Emil Blonsky?

Charles Austin Miller

New today Answer: Since some time has passed probably between the Hulk taking Betty to safety and General Ross talking to Doc Sampson, there's a possibility that he was told who was responsible for alerting Bruce to their presence. When Bruce looks up, it isn't Blonsky he saw but another soldier.

New this week Question: What was Mr Darling's career?

New this week Answer: In the original stage play by J.M. Barrie, he was a bank clerk. I don't think what he did for work was brought up in the 1953 film.

New this week Question: At the beginning of the song, "I want it now", did Veruca say she wanted a "big feast" or a "bean feast"? If it's the latter, what exactly is it?

New this week Answer: A "bean-feast", which is typically a British word, was a large, annual dinner given by employers to the workers. It later became a term for any lively celebration or outing with a big meal. The term may have come from the Feast of the Twelfth Night where a bean was baked into a cake and whoever got the bean became the "bean king."

Bishop73

New this week Answer: She does indeed say "bean feast," and it isn't really a thing. It's just her making an exaggerated demand for something, and expecting it immediately. She says "bean feast" just to see if her father will object in any way, or agree as he always does.

New this week Question: Wouldn't the police have eventually known that Stu didn't shoot and kill Leon after their investigation? Surely the caller would have known that too? If so, why would the caller even frame Stu in the first place? Surely he wasn't going to let the police take Stu away for murder, since he intends to teach him a lesson.

New this week Question: The news reporter on the TV of Hoffman's hideout said there were 7 survivors from William Easton's "test." I counted 6; the diabetic family woman, the 2 women from the carousel trap, the widow mother and her son, and William's sister. Was there another survivor that I did not account for, and if so, who is it?

New this week Answer: There are only 6 survivors.

A Demon

New this week Question: In the opening scenes when Poirot confronts the rabbi, priest, and imam - the priest is Catholic / Western Rite. But from the setting of their dispute in Jerusalem, shouldn't the priest be Orthodox / Eastern Rite?

New this week Question: How did Kowalski and Ryan cause the tether rope to break? It takes more than 220 Gs of force to cause a tether rope to break - they're specifically made of a material designed to absorb a lot of shock.

New this week Question: Why did little John like the fact that the hubcaps were made of gold? I thought he wasn't greedy like Prince John.

New this week Answer: He's not. Just like Robin Hood, he's robbing the rich to give to the poor. Since Prince John is so wealthy, Little John takes whatever he can get from the coach to help the oppressed people.

New this week Question: Why didn't Lokar have his men burn the bodies if he wanted to avoid being exposed?

New this week Answer: Burning large piles of bodies is time consuming, laborious, and may actually draw more attention than simply leaving them in mass graves.

New this week Question: Why did Nicki want Rachel dead?

New this week Answer: She admits that while high on drugs she had a fit of jealousy and hired an assassin to kill her sister.

BaconIsMyBFF

New this week Question: Why did Catherine target Nick? I know he's a big douchebag, but that can't be the only reason right? Was it to get revenge against Beth for once and all for leaving her?

New this week Question: What's with the scene where the cops drive towards the Nakotami building, but then turn around? Didn't Hans order 911 to be called so the FBI could be called out?

New this week Answer: It was all about timing. Hans' plan did require having the police and the F.B.I. involved eventually, but John McClane set off the fire alarm before Hans was ready for the authorities to intervene. That was why Hans then ordered Eddy, the terrorist impersonating the security guard at the front desk, to call 911 and cancel the alarm.

James Bond Special: Part 1 - S6-E1

New this week Question: Couldn't Adam, and Jamie have made ten magnets with the same diameter, but much longer than the other ten circular magnets they used? Those type of magnets would be able to contain a lot more energy, and generate more pull than the circular ones they used.

New this week Answer: Maybe so, However as is shown on the show, they often mess up or make silly errors.

A Demon

New this week Question: Did Magneto get his powers back because the cure is not permanent, or is he just to powerful to be cured?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

New this week Answer: The cure is only temporary. The Rogue Cut of X-Men: Days of Future Past makes this explicitly clear as Rogue has also regained her powers after taking the cure.

BaconIsMyBFF

New this week Answer: The implication is that the cure was ineffective. Magneto has full control of his powers by the time we see him in the mid-credits scene of "The Wolverine." Rogue, who also received the cure in this film, has her powers back in the extended edition of "X-Men: Days of Future Past," which takes place in the same timeline as this film up until the very end of it.

Serious B

New this week Question: During "Joe's Coin Bit", how can the team hear Joe humming? Race car radios are activated by a button on the steering wheel. If he's doing it unconsciously because he's "pushing close to the edge", why would Joe push the button to transmit?

David George

New this week Question: Why was Toulouse crying at the end of the Elephant Love Medley? If I am correct he was sitting on a balcony eating and drinking when singing the words "How wonderful life is, now you're in the world." Is it just that he is happy about his dream of finally getting the Bohemian Play? Is it a potential that he is in love with Christian or Satine. Another possibility is that he just happy seeing Christian in love, since Christian previously stated that he had never been in love before?
