Question: Ferdinand had his name since birth when he is being raised at the bull camp. But he is later adopted by Nina and Juan who also name him Ferdinand. How do they know that his name is Ferdinand? He was not wearing any identification tags and he couldn't speak to the humans to tell them this.Cody Fairless-Lee
Question: The gravity acceleration on Mars is 3.71/ms2 a little more than double our Moon and approximately 1/3 of Earth gravity. For this reason every falling object or walking/running people or bouncing object should be attracted to Mars in a "slow motion" fashion. Watching the movie I didn't notice such slow-motion effect. Was that a deliberate error in order to avoid huge additional costs and probably making the movie less tedious?
Question: At the beginning of the movie, Goldblum's wife makes him bacon and eggs for breakfast, then when she has to go to work, she takes his uneaten breakfast away and brings it to the kitchen while he is still sitting there. Why?
Question: If it is really like what Dick said "It's just like reading a book", or that the spirits in the hotel don't have a physical existence, how did Danny get the bruises on his neck from the lady in the bathtub? I also don't understand the transformation in Danny's' character, I do understand that at that point he was taken over by his imaginary friend, but what actually happened to the real Danny?
Question: In the first fight scene as gladiators they are chained up together as pairs. Maximus continues not saying anything...then the next battle scene Maximus walks across all of the gladiators and is greeted just like he was when he was a general to his soldiers, and he has a battle against 6 or 7 people. Why was he singled out to fight all by himself? The movie didn't portray him as standing out in the first gladiator battle when he was chained with the Nubian.
Question: All 3 boys have their last names mentioned in the movie at some point, but the 2 girls do not have their last names mentioned at all. In the credits at the end of the film, it mentions the full names of the girls... Claire Standish and Allison Reynolds. Why would these last names be created just for the credits if they were never used? Was there a relevance for doing this?
Question: How is it this takes place after Avengers, yet Tony's home can get blown up on national TV after which he is then presumed dead, yet not a peep from not only the Avengers but S.H.I.E.L.D. either? Something that big happening should warrant a very strong response, but...nothing.
Question: Sam and Luka are arguing after Luka allowed Neela to practice when the patient was dead. When they were arguing I swear I hear him calling her Abby. I have re watched it a few times and the issue was never addressed so I'm not sure what to think other than me not hearing correctly. Anyone have any ideas?Robin
Question: Why did the boy at the end die? At the barbecue, they tell the story of how Rory saved the boy from the news van and realise since Rory intervened when he wasn't supposed to be alive, the boy is on the list. But if all of them had died in the original pile up, they would not have crashed in the field, the news van wouldn't have been there, so the boy wouldn't have been in danger.Vanityvicious
